Same Sex Marriage: The ‘Right’ that Trumps Religious Liberty

Same-sex "marriage" now trumps our First Amendment freedoms.

Same-sex “marriage” now trumps our First Amendment freedoms.

Townhall columnist and author Frank Turek has expressed concern over the increasing power of “same sex marriage” to trump religious liberties, freedom of speech and even our right to hold jobs if we oppose homosexual “marriage.”

Even Bill Maher, no friend of Christians, is concerned about the power of what he calls the “gay mafia” to destroy the lives of those who oppose so-called “gay marriage.”

Turek writes that homosexuals have invented a new “right” that now forces acceptance of same-sex marriage – and threatens religious freedom, free speech and freedom of association.

According to Turek:

Liberals can’t justify why same-sex marriage is right. Nevertheless, they want to legislate it as a right and will convict you of heresy if you fail to bow to it. Florists, bakers, photographers, Internet CEOs and speakers like myself have all discovered personally that the people who say they are fighting for “tolerance” are often the most intolerant. In the name of “inclusion and diversity,” those of us who have a diverse view are being excluded because we don’t exhibit lock-step conformity to their intolerant agenda. We are being fired and fined for exercising our real God-given rights. How can this be? We can’t work because of our political views—views that are firmly rooted in the biological facts of nature. Is this still America?

At least one advocate of same sex marriage has a real problem with this. Homosexual author Andrew Sullivan expressed revulsion for the intolerance gay activists expressed to former Mozilla CEO Brandon Eich, which ultimately forced his resignation. Sullivan wrote, “The whole episode disgusts me – as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today – hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else – then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.” (Maybe Sullivan is speaking of another time, but most “religious right” people I know are tolerant—they would never usurp the free speech or freedom of association rights of those with whom they disagree.)

Turek quotes lesbian activist Chai Feldblum, an Obama appointee to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission who famously stated that when there’s a clash between religious liberties and homosexual objectives, “I’m having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win.”

The fact is that “gay” activists and their allies in the White House, in Congress, in educational institutions, and in the media, believe that Christians are bigots who should be forced by the government to shut up and obey whatever homosexuals wish to impose on them – or be fired from their jobs, fined or even imprisoned for “thought crimes” against sodomy.

One Comment to “Same Sex Marriage: The ‘Right’ that Trumps Religious Liberty”

    Harvey Milk Stamped “Out” Forever !

    The Obama Cabal is behind universal GAYety with a “forever” postage stamp glorifying Harvey Milk, a Jewish homosexual predator “attracted to boys aged 15-19,” according to WikiAnswers! (Also see Wikipedia.)
    Global gaydom was even predicted by Jesus (see “days of Lot” in Luke 17 and compare with Genesis 19).
    And the Hebrew prophet Zechariah (14th chapter) says that during the same end-time gay “days” ALL nations will come against Israel and fulfill the “days of Noah” at the same time (see Luke 17 again) – a short time of anti-Jewish genocide found in Zechariah 13:8 when two-thirds of all Jews will die.
    In other words, when “gay days” have become universal, all hell will break loose!
    The same “days” will cause worldwide human government to collapse in just a few short years! For the first time ever there won’t be enough time for anyone to attend college, have a family, enjoy retirement, etc. It will also be the last time anyone like ObabaBlackSheep will be able to keep pulling the wool over our eyes!
    One final thought. The more we see gays “coming out,” the sooner Jesus will be “coming down”!
    For more, Google or Yahoo “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up,” “Jesus Never Mentioned Homosexuality. When gays have birthdays…,” “FOR GAYS ONLY: Jesus Predicted…,” “USA – from Puritans to Impure-itans!” and “The Background Obama Can’t Cover Up.”
