It has been uplifting to see Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore take a stand against the lawless federal judge who issued a ruling against Alabama's marriage protection amendment. It's uplifting because it's so rare today. To a man, we're seeing state leader after leader bow down to the bad rulings of these rogue judges who have no authority over state marriage protection amendments. The states offer no resistance, other than feeble appeals filings, and instead allow an abominable, false definition of marriage to be imposed on the people of the states.
Chief Justice Moore's noble stand notwithstanding, it may be too little, too late for freedom and marriage in the United States. For many years now, the foot soldiers of the militant homosexual movement have labored tirelessly to infiltrate all the institutions of our nation and spread their vile campaign to "mainstream" perverse sexual behavior in our nation. They have taken one Christian business after another to court to force the violation of conscience on these people who resist their evil efforts. They have injected their lying, pro-homosexual propaganda into public school curriculums all across the nation. They have portrayed in schools and media and entertainment products a false, positive picture of homosexual relationships. They have managed to get their men on court benches across the land and in positions of power in our federal, state and local governments. And because there has been very little push-back from anyone, they are succeeding.
I have repeatedly warned that the goal of this radical sexual anarchy movement is not what its members purport. It is not for "equality," "anti-bullying," or legitimate "civil rights." It is to abolish all public opposition to the in-your-face expression of homosexuality and related behaviors (like "transgenderism") and the destruction of the meaning of marriage. This is a back door way to crush our God-given, constitutionally protected rights to freedom of religion, speech, conscience, and association. The Godless Marxists who have infiltrated our nation's power structure have long wanted to subdue the American people under the tyranny that is so common throughout the world and human history, yet the system our Founders put in place has been a strong bulwark against such oppression. In the militant homosexual movement, these budding tyrants have found the tool they need to destroy our freedoms through increments of judicial malfeasance, leading to bad law and regulation, such as non-discrimination dictates that protect sexual deviants at the expense of the real rights of the American people.
In danger are the freedoms of all Americans who oppose being forced to accommodate or participate in any aspect of homosexual expression and counterfeit marriage; however, it is mainly Christians who take a bold stand against this movement and the rest of the sin-laden rot that has infested our culture. That's why I say it is chiefly the rights of Christians that are the target of this satanic movement, although anyone who opposes it stands to lose their God-given rights as well.
We are set to watch the Supreme Court possibly issue the "unquestionable" imposition of same-sex "marriage" on the United States. If that happens, we will be on the fast-track to tyranny. It will become illegal to oppose homosexual expression and counterfeit marriage in any way. If the Court does this, it will effectively abolish the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Do not imagine for a minute that churches will be exempt. They won't. These tenacious sodomite tools of the devil will not rest until even churches are forced to accommodate the slaves of the infamous crime against nature and nature's God. Even then, they won't stop their hellish crusade to establish a dominant Sodom West in these terrible last days.
So, what's the answer? What do we do? Just bend to the evil will of our degenerate culture and lawless courts? No. We are entering a time of trial and fire unlike any seen in the history of the United States, and its power goes well beyond the schemes of the "useful idiots" of the radical homosexual movement. The persecution of Christians in the U.S. has only just begun. We must look for inspiration and encouragement to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He has assured us that we should not expect to be treated any differently or hated any less than He was during His earthly ministry. Christians in America have thus far had an amazingly blessed existence, mostly free from the demonic persecution Christians elsewhere have seen. We must brace ourselves for the unimaginably dark days ahead.
More than anything, I wish I could tell you that we will be able to beat back this evil tyranny that is descending on us, but I can't. In no way am I ever suggesting that we should stop speaking, standing and fighting against it, but I know that tyranny is on the way (the Bible makes this clear). That's why it is vital that we, as Christians, do our best to immerse ourselves in the study of Scripture and in prayer and repentance of the sin in our lives. I say this most of all to myself, as I struggle daily to walk that narrow path through Christ. I stumble daily, too, but He is more than able to support us, to lift us back to our feet and give us the strength and peace to continue along the road on which He has set us and to cause us, by His precious blood, to stand in that last day.
Of course, this is no consolation to those who are not in Christ. If that is you, I would implore you to open your heart to Him, to look into the amazing way in which God loves us with an unfathomable love and gave Himself (Jesus is God) as a perfect sacrifice in our place, to atone for our sins, for which we deserve death. In this sacrifice on the cross, He gave us a way to be reconciled to Him (Who was without sin), a way out of certain, eternal death and separation from Him. He made us and wants us to belong to Him forever. Grab a Bible, and read it. Honestly seek the Lord, and you will find Him. The Spirit of the Lord living in us is our only defense and our only means of power to stand and resist the unspeakable evil of the times we are living in.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
