And yet just earlier this year someone in Houston tried doing exactly that, forcing the church to register as a business. Some churches in Florida have been kicked out of their building for “zoning” reasons, you see the truth is that because law is now so complicated, everyone is breaking it in several ways, so all they have to do now is identify you for speaking against them, then slap you with the charges that they otherwise never enforce. And then everyone says “oh you’re just being paranoid, it isn’t because they spoke against gay marriage, even though the people in charge of the city are militant lesbians, they just violated Article 1 subsection X, paragraph 45 of city ordinance B 26-III.”
Then we have to give up or go out of business spending money on lawyers to fight. See you can’t win for losing in the American Court System nowadays, unless you have someone on your side with ridiculous amounts of cash to spend.

And it was paranoia when they decriminalized sodomy that gay people would marry, 2 decades later… It would seem that people who were once the crazed loons of society are being proven right more every day. Besides it isn’t hyperbole, I’ve been listening to the drivers of the movement say these things for a long time, you can only hear it so many times before you start to take them at their word.

If they think that will be our destruction than they have no idea. We’ll lose some, but we’re also the same people who have faced an upstream battle throughout our history. I’ll stand with men like Simon Peter, and all the others who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of God before I bow to the rainbow crusade.

The worship of Stalin was pretty popular until he died and they had to admit that he was a murdering psychopath. Kids still worship Che and Castro, for whatever the imagined accomplishments they have given those men.
Heck why don’t we just go back to the bad old days when the rulers of the empire were considered gods and built temples to themselves. Maybe sooner than we all think.

Just to make sure I’m reading you right on this one, you are saying that it isn’t specifically religion in general but Christianity that is the bulwark standing against the police state, right? Or am I reading you wrong in that?
 June 29, 2015 at 5:36pm
Yeah, just like that police captain who got fired in Utah for being a Mormon who refused to participate in a gay pride parade. I had no idea that was part of “required” duty but apparently I haven’t read the new manuals on our “tolerant by force” society.
Why don’t we just cut to the chase and outlaw anyone practicing member of a faith that doesn’t ascribe to the latest social tides from being able to engage in the workforce. Just hope you’ve got enough money to cover the increase in unemployment.
If you can’t see the difference between people who are murdering anyone in their way against people who are making a logical argument and using the legal system, then you are the biggest gorram fool in this planet. Your means are your ends, otherwise anyone who likes dogs is no different than Hitler.
 June 28, 2015 at 10:10pm
Just us faithful figuring out what the next avenue of attack on us is going to be. Rich get their stuff taken away for fairness, we get our livelihoods stolen in the name of tolerance.
You can’t ignore the social issues, because inevitably every social issue has a socialist edge that they plan to exploit in order to steal from the people they don’t like. Just like how we now have to pay for a college girl who sleeps around’s abortions.

What worries me is that it seems an international version of what I saw in Florida during 2007. You have bad investments like Greece and Ukraine that everyone has been funneling money into, suddenly those investments go bad and it starts everyone panicing, the countries try to get back their money from investments that are on the edge will crumble and then it will be too late because their will have sunk so much money into investments that are bad that it will cause them to tank too.
Maybe that was Russia’s plan all along, make Ukraine the straw that broke the Eurozone’s back.

They don’t know what to do, twitter and facebook are useless against ISIS, also they can’t be boycotted and any effort to protest their homes would probably not go well. It’s kind of like the “Bring back our girls campaign,” a whole lot of bluster to people who probably don’t have the internet and if they do they don’t care, mixed with inaction. I still consider that social media campaign the shining example of how unprepared Western Civilization is to deal with ISIS and other such groups.
June 28, 2015 at 2:23am
To be fair they were going to do it anyway, but they probably thought it would make a better venue by showing the world what they plan to do to the gays in America. Not a true reaction, but it does roll off the tongue slightly easier than “ISIS hijacks twitter hashtag on day of samesex marriage court ruling to broadcast latest execution.” You have to give the Islamic State credit, they have a sense of humor darker than a black hole and a sense of tragic timing that is second to none.
June 28, 2015 at 1:23am
Yes but you also have to make it clear exactly why, those dolts so attached to the social media tides that they are on the verge of becoming the first human cyborg have a hard time hearing what the cause of their problems are so mostly they just double down until they run a once good thing into the ground.
 June 28, 2015 at 1:19am
Yeah but then they can take away your job, this kind of like reconstruction, “we’ll you’re allowed to vote but if you do we’ll burn down your house,” kind of mentality. And believe me that is rapidly what this is turning into, it always starts harmless and then people start disappearing.
 June 28, 2015 at 1:15am
People have been trying to take it down for decades, very few of them, now all the sudden it is a moral outrage of our time. One word, Sheep, and now all the sheep are in full facebook driven stampede, Heaven help anything that gets in their way, those civil war re-enactors are going to be tarred and feathered soon.
You know Lincoln and the other leaders of the Union treated the defeated Confederates with more dignity than this, but please continue spitting our the legacy of one of our greatest Presidents to unify a broken country. Bonus points, we could probably hook a generator up to him and power the Eastern Seaboard with how quickly he is turning over in his grave, not from just the flag stupidity but from all the other idiocy that is causing the Balkanization of America.

Kind of figure either way they just shot off their own leg at the knee, by effectively calling the vast majority of their fans racists that they have to censor. Either the option above me will happen and they will face the full wrath of a insane liberal social media crusade, or their fans will simply leave them to rot and the sport will go the way of chariot races.
 June 28, 2015 at 1:07am
I would hardly call this “capitalism” I would call it “censorship by angry mob,” unfortunately in the social media dominated world the only people who aren’t controlled by the twitter crusade are the actual murders, bigots and rapists who are currently killing at leisure (got to hand it to ISIS, they do have the cruelest sense of humor the world has ever produced) while we run around tearing each other apart over the internet.
Plus I don’t know where exactly you decided to make up that notion about us forcing people to fly the confederate battle flag, that’s as stupid as saying “well you questions a witness’s testimony about his attacker being a racist therefore you must be a racist.”
 June 27, 2015 at 3:36am
To be fair, it was completely off it’s rocker from the beginning, but now it has gone from annoying crazy to actually frightening crazy.
They’ll certainly try, but the facebook twitter crusade is going to get a harsher version of the lesson they learned with Boko Harem, corporations bend to their whims like jellyfish, but when you go up against an opponent that actually can and will use force, your tweets are worth less than the energy that your computer expended in posting them.
After all the pen is mightier than the sword, until the sword gets tired of the pen’s crap and slices him in half.
You know I think Sharpton and the rest are going to be the greatest recruiters the KKK and White Supremacists has ever known. They aren’t in the open yet, but you know their sitting back and watching for their “magic moment” and sadly people are probably going to flock to them because between them and the crazed liberal crusaders, they are going to seem far more reasonable. Push someone into a corner, and when they see a way out they’ll take it, even if the way is just as equally bad or worse than what drove them there in the first place.
For every action a reaction. If forced to choose, most people will stick with their own kind if they seem at all reasonable. At this rate the coming polarity will make today look very tame. Our time of peace draws to a close and yes, unfortunately much strife will be along racial lines. As rational as I try to be and act, my anger towards this small number spills over on the Black race as a whole, so I have to agree with you. I just wish there was a way to instantly see a man’s ethic instead of his color.
All we can do is try to teach love of our fellow man and desire of God’s salvation. It is all we get, yet if it fills into our whole world it would be greater than anything yet seen. However, we are told it won’t happen the easy way, God will have to intervene to save even a very few.

Because the people who conceived the ideology were enemies of the United States and viewed it as a threat to their goals of conquest. People within the country ran with the idea and are possessed of the belief that rather than destroy it so someone else can conquer it, they will instead destroy it and rebuild it the way they want it to, without that pesky Constitution or as they would say “legacy of racism” in their way.
