Gays Take Aim at Christian Churches
If you thought that Governor Mike Pence’s sad capitulation to LGBT madness was the end of this unfortunate saga, think again. America’s homosexual community has gotten a taste for blood, and they aren’t going to stop until they’ve gotten their fill. The next year will be a scary one as they chip away at the traditions and values this country has held dear for two centuries.
The latest stunner comes from Wyoming, where a gay group wants to shut down churches that don’t bow to their agenda. In a tweet that was quickly deleted, Jeran Artery of Wyoming Equality said:
Churches that lobby to have freedoms and rights taken away from ANYONE should absolutely have their 501(c)3 status revoked!
Artery is referring to the tax status enjoyed by American churches, provided them not for religious reasons but charitable ones. Churches earn this tax exemption by giving to the poor and the needy. Without it, many of them would be unable to survive. By calling for an end to this status, Artery is effectively calling on the federal government to destroy churches that don’t agree with the LGBT movement.
It’s certainly not the first time we’ve seen this kind of tactic used by the left. Operation Choke Point, the IRS scandal, and the “voluntary” school lunch program are all perfect examples of the Obama administration enforcing an agenda without technically breaking the law. And the idea of eliminating tax exemptions for churches already has a strong base of support among young liberals. If they can use it to force compliance with the gay agenda, America’s Christians could be looking at dark days ahead.
Of course, it would also devastate the private charity pool, which makes it all the more attractive to Democrats. What better way to sign more people to the welfare rolls? What better way to expand the SNAP program? Isn’t it nice when liberal agendas can dovetail in a perfect storm of independence-killing legislation? All without once encroaching on the Bill of Rights! Well, technically.
What’s next? Will we see special government-approved Bibles, free of any pesky verses that might offend a homosexual? FCC fines for TV and radio programs that dare to question the morality of gay marriage? Oh, and don’t forget about the internet. Net neutrality, indeed. We’ll see. Yes we will.
The age of Christian persecution is here, and believers saw it coming. Whether it has apocalyptic ramifications or not remains to be seen, but there’s no question that religious freedom is under attack. Liberals want us to believe this is just about a few bakers and florists, but do you really think we would see this much controversy if that was all it was? No way. There’s a much bigger plan in the works here. By the time they’re done, censored Bibles may be the least of our concerns.
