The War Against Faith and Family Continues Unabated

It may be a new year, but it’s the same old same old when it comes to the militant homosexual assault on family, faith and freedom. Their ongoing war has not eased up the slightest over the Christmas and New Year break, but is going ahead full steam.

The militants will not rest until every last bit of resistance to their agenda is utterly stamped out, and anyone who dares to oppose them is imprisoned, fined, or kicked out of their job. And we have plenty more examples of these very things just in the past week or so.

Let me offer just three of these recent cases. They are taking place all around the Western world and are all very frightening examples of how the gaystapo are targeting all those who would remain true to their own consciences, values and beliefs. And liberties are falling fast as a result.

The first case comes from the US with this headline: “Wedding Vendor Opposed to Same Sex Marriage Shuts Down”. The story begins, “A company in the wedding industry based in Annapolis, Maryland will close its doors, rather than face lawsuits for refusing to serve same-sex marriage couples.

“Discover Annapolis Tours, which runs old-fashioned trolley tours in Annapolis, will close their $50,000 a year business. The owner of the trolley tour company would rather shut down his business than compromise his moral beliefs when same-sex marriage law becomes legal at the beginning of the year.

“Wedding vendors who refused to provide services to same-sex couples have faced discrimination lawsuits in the past – and lost.  Glendora Hughes, general counsel for the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights stated: ‘If they’re providing services to the public, they can’t discriminate who they provide their services to.’ According to the Maryland Wedding Professionals Association, Discover Tours is the second company to refuse business because of the same-sex marriage law. The law was upheld in the November election.”

And the homosexual activists keep insisting that nothing will change when they get special rights and marriage rights. Yeah right. Try telling that to this small business. What about their rights? What about their freedoms? It seems talk about rights is just all one-way traffic here.

The second story comes from Europe with this headline: “Socialist politician says Spanish bishop should be ‘muzzled’.” The story reads in part: “A socialist government official in Andalusia, Spain, called for a local Catholic bishop to be ‘muzzled’ for arguing that men and women are both different and complementary.

“Bishop Demetrio Fernandez of Cordoba should be silenced for leveling attacks against ‘real and effective equality between men and women,’ charged Miguel Angel Vazquez, a member of the Socialist Party and spokesman for the Andalusian provincial government.

“In a Jan. 4 post on his personal blog, Vazquez labeled Bishop Fernandez ‘a true representative of religious fanaticism’ and said that the prelate provokes ‘controversies that are at odds with the individual and collective rights embodied in the constitution.’

“Calling the bishop’s defense of marriage and the family ‘backwards,’ Vazquez said that he would ‘rather burn in hell (if it exists) than renounce equality.’ In a recent pastoral letter, Bishop Fernandez critiqued sexual philosophies that hold the differences between men and women to be a social construct rather than a biological reality.

“Such ideology, displayed in radical feminism and the push for universal acceptance of homosexual behavior, ‘destroys the family and breaks every tie man has with God through his own nature,’ he warned. ‘A series of educational, medical and academic programs exist at the service of this ideology in an attempt to force it upon everyone, causing tremendous harm to the consciences of children, teens and young people,’ the bishop said.”

Wow, the ideology fascists are really coming out in force here. And the bishop is being “backwards” for recognising that men and women are different, and he needs to be silenced? Mind-boggling. One might as well try to muzzle those who say the law of gravity exists, or that 2+2=4, or eating is a necessity of life.

The third example, also from Europe, has this incredible headline: “French government warns Catholic schools to stay ‘neutral’ on homosexual ‘marriage’.” Stay neutral? Yep, that’s what it said. The story starts in this fashion: “As French Catholics prepare to mobilize on January 13 for a national march against the creation of homosexual ‘marriage,’ the country’s education minister is warning Catholic schools against participating, claiming that it could cause ‘homophobia’ against homosexual students.

“National Education Minister Vincent Peillon has written a letter to all of the country’s 8,300 Catholic school principals, claiming that they have the responsibility to maintain ‘neutrality’ regarding the debate over homosexual ‘marriage’ in their institutions, according to reports by Le Monde and the French Press Agency. ‘It is your responsibility in effect to ensure that the debates that are occurring in French society not be expressed, in the schools and establishments, by the phenomena of rejection and homophobic stigmatization,’ wrote Peillon.

“‘I call you to the greatest vigilance regarding the conditions of the legitimate debate regarding marriage for all … notably in private establishments under contract,’ he said. ‘It is therefore proper to call for restraint and neutrality within all of the institutions so that schools are not made the object of any manipulation’.”

Wow again. Now the state is warning religious bodies to disregard their own beliefs and teachings and simply submit without a fight to the secularist agenda of the state. It is just incredible that roughly one per cent of the population has managed to hold the rest of the nation to ransom.

But we see this happening all over the West. The very tiny but very vocal homosexual lobby is transforming society and nations, whether the other 99 per cent like it or not. That is not freedom and democracy. That is tyranny and oppression.

Every day we see freedoms being stripped away from ordinary citizens, with religious freedom especially in the crosshairs of the militant activists. We are losing it quickly, and right before our very eyes. If we don’t wake up real soon and start standing up for our freedoms, we will lose everything.

Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
