We have reached the point where neither American laws nor accepted cultural norms will protect my rights as a Christian to protect my child from what my faith teaches is sinful and perverse behavior. Americans must not back down in the face of constant intimidation. The first step begins at home: naming the sin and teaching our children to love the sinner but hate the sin. The LGBT agenda is ensuring that our tiny tots are taught homosexuality before we’ve even broken them of thumb-sucking. By the time they are teenagers – feeling “different” like millions of teenagers before them – they are being sucked into the LGBTQ lifestyle because their parents and their communities put acceptance of man’s lusts above God’s law.
Our youth are embarking on a lonely, dark path of sexual confusion and its resulting sadness, disease and suicide. There will be no going back. Generation Q may have already slipped through our fingers.

The quest for “same-sex marriage” (which, as has been established, doesn’t exist) is not about the civil rights of homosexuals or the well-worn catch phrase “marriage equality.” Like everything championed by the political left, it is about weakening America’s cultural and societal foundation; it is but one component in the anti-theistic, Christophobic design of the radical left.
In fact, outside of a handful of the whopping 3.5 percent of Americans who identify as homosexual, most of those who are advancing this offensive are not homosexual, nor do they care in the least about the civil rights of homosexuals. They are the power brokers of the left, the same people who continually strive to alienate ethnic minorities, women, the poor and whomever else they can from societal convention.
Apart from those types, the people who advocate most vociferously for “marriage equality” are militant homosexuals and the most rabid leftists. The majority of those with whom I interact on a frequent basis are young and ill-informed, but they all share the same venomous hatred for everything smacking of Christianity, employing the same tiresome charges relative to those holding traditional values being intolerant and hateful.

In light of the Supreme Court hand-picking the issue of homosexual marriage this week – an issue that has been settled by our Creator, the laws of our republic and the righteous compliance of the American people – I thought it was important to ask where the American people are deriving the belief that radical homosexual marriage is accepted by a majority of our citizens.
Fact: At least 33 states have voted down homosexual marriage.
During the state’s Proposition 8 battle, 7 million Californians voted against homosexual marriage (the majority were black voters.) Not once but twice was their voice heard. Yet, the corrupt judicial system got involved and stripped it from the hands of the people, placing it in the courts – right where they wanted it. That way they could control the “debate,” and the state-run media were right there to help them along.

That our nation has fallen so far, so fast in its embrace of empty relativism makes the head swim. It’s at once perplexing and heartbreaking that we have a U.S. Supreme Court seriously considering inventing a newfangled “right” to that chicane aberration tagged “same-sex marriage.” This is true particularly when one considers that the defining behaviors central to “gay marriage” were, for hundreds of years and for obvious reasons, legally and properly classified as “crimes against nature.” Though our postmodern zeitgeist may have changed, objective reality has not.
Indeed, American culture, while casting aside that which is just, moral and true, has, instead, taken-up that which is unjust, immoral and false. This abject rejection of absolute truth provides compelling evidence that the good ‘ol USA – the greatest nation on earth – is on the fast track to becoming “the late, great USA.”
So-called “gay marriage” is a counterfeit – a mockery of legitimate marriage. It’s like taking a rotten apple, spray-painting it orange, and then calling it an orange. “Same-sex marriage” is no more real marriage then a rotten apple is an orange. It’s mock marriage.

Will Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts disappoint conservatives again – this time on same-sex marriage?
The question is being raised by an opinion piece written by Roberts’ cousin, Jean Podrasky, 48, a lesbian activist. The piece appeared on the website of the National Council of Lesbian Rights. She will be sitting ringside in the courtroom as a guest of Roberts at two key hearings take place.
Roberts shocked Republicans and conservatives when he sided with the majority of flaming progressives on the court in upholding the constitutionality of Obamacare.
Could he do it again?
Will he pull a Rob Portman and support same-sex marriage because he’s got a homosexual relative?

Our Supreme Court is faced right now with its greatest challenge, ever. By June, concerning the very definition of marriage, nine human beings will decide whether we remain “one nation under God,” governed by the God who created us and them – or take on a new fuel, the treacherous, fickle, amoral “popular opinion,” a synthetic mixture of poll results, ignorance of unchangeable biblical principle and outright hedonistic rebellion.
And as true now as then, our concepts of morality and virtue come directly from God, through His Bible. That’s undeniable. His love is universal, for all of us. But His blessings are promised only to those who honor and obey His Word. When a society decides to substitute its collective will for His, it changes its spiritual and moral DNA – like pumping pig’s blood into human veins.
People, we must pray, and pray very earnestly, for the nine human beings who will soon decide the future of America. Only if we remain “one nation under God” will we long survive.

Anyone – conservative, leftist, atheist, pagan or statesman – who conflates racial discrimination in marriage, education, or employment with gender or sex is ignorant of both history and constitutional law. The Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Abolitionist movement, the Civil War, the Civil War Amendments, Reconstruction, nor Jim Crow, the 1964 Civil Rights Acts or affirmative action had anything to do with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender movement.
Being black isn’t a sin; being LGBT is a sin and violates many Bible precepts and the original intent of the framers. Perhaps Fox News host Bill O’Reilly would call me a “Bible thumper,” which I consider a vile, reactionary stereotype, yet O’Reilly must learn that all discrimination isn’t invidious or unlawful. Some discrimination is required to keep society from imploding.
Black Americans are collectively the beneficiaries of the blood, suffering and death MLK and the civil rights movement bore to fulfill Jefferson’s Declaration, yet over the past 40 years Black America has squandered this sacred inheritance because we allowed LGBT activists and other disparate groups to pervert the Bill of Rights and the 14th Amendment due process clause by glomming onto the black civil rights moral crusades of the 1950s and ’60s, which historically were rooted in God, biblical theism, Natural Law and constitutional liberty. This treachery is especially outrageous on the 45th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination.
