Jim Crow is back, compliments of Big Gay and the NFL

The NFL is saying to Arizona, and President Obama is saying to Uganda: “If you support religious liberty or natural marriage, you can’t sit at our lunch counter.”

Not the same, mind you, but similar, with a dynamic that if followed to its logical conclusion will take us to the same place. First they come for the bakers, and then they come for the rest of us.

Economically, a Christian baker in Oregon was forced to close his business because of his support for natural marriage. Christians have suffered educational disadvantages, as some have been fired from academic positions for supporting man-woman marriage and others have been booted from graduate programs in counseling because they hold a biblical view of sexuality.

The social disadvantages are perhaps the most obvious. Supporters of religious liberty and natural marriage in Arizona are the subject of unrelenting hatred, vilification and ostracism from “polite” society.

In other words, Jim Crow is back, thanks to Big Gay and their allies. Only this time the victims of this rank bigotry are people of faith, not people of color.

Arizona lawmakers are seeking to protect Christian businessmen from being discriminated against economically and socially simply because they exercise their constitutional right to the free exercise of religion in business affairs. It’s simply immoral as well as unconstitutional for the heavy hand of government to be used to force an American citizen to violate his conscience, his deeply held religious values, and the standards of his God.

But this is precisely what secular fundamentalists in the homosexual lobby, government and business are seeking to do in Arizona. Not only is there a blatant refusal on the part of these activists to honor their own self-proclaimed ideals of diversity and inclusion (how included do Christian bakers feel right now?), they want to affirmatively punish any Christian who would dare bring biblical principle into the operation of his business.

The NFL is threatening to pull next year’s Super Bowl from Arizona if the state will not bow the knee to the god of gayness. In other words, the NFL is saying to Arizona, if you continue to support religious liberty, you will be segregated out from the rest of society.

Now would the bullies and bigots of Big Gay protect the liberty of a homosexual baker who refused to bake a cake for an anniversary celebration at, for example, the American Family Association? Would they protect the liberty of a homosexual printer who turned down a print job for AFA? The questions answer themselves, and reveal the hypocrisy and double standards of these paragons of tolerance in all their nauseating glory.

On an international level, the United States is doing to Uganda what the NFL is trying to do to Arizona, and if anything it’s more insidious because they are doing it to a nation of black people. Our own government is seeking to ostracize an entire nation of blacks, segregating it from the nations of the world, simply because that nation of blacks wants to protect the health of its own people from the ravages of disease caused by promiscuous homosexual behavior. (Watch “Cultural Imperialism: The Sexual Rights Agenda“)

So the NFL is saying to Arizona, and President Obama is saying to Uganda: “If you support religious liberty or natural marriage, you can’t sit at our lunch counter.”

Sounds a whole lot like Jim Crow to me.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
