So apparently there has been some rumbling and shaking on the earth due to the recent remarks of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson. He paraphrased 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (which is supposedly equivalent to “hateful speech”) and as a result he is being removed from the show. Now the “vast majority” of Duck Dynasty viewers who support gay marriage and homosexuality will get their wish and will finally be able to watch a TV show that supports all of their beliefs with exception.
Ah, 21st century America. Land of truth and religious freedom.
But see, here’s the part that I find ironic. The LGBT community can say whatever they want to the Christians who object to their view.
“You bigot! Christian sucker!”
“Its all about love, man. Can’t you see that?”
“If two people love each other, who are you to say they can’t get married?”
And so on and so forth. Its all fine and dandy for the media because they can show all of these liberated, happy people kissing and having a good time. It all looks really good, therefore it must be good.
But when a Christian says something along the lines of, “Well, I don’t believe that same-sex marriage is right,” the LGBT activists will jump on it with, “Well don’t force your religion/beliefs on us!” Heck, I’m surprised they haven’t accused WordPress itself of being anti-gay just because it puts a red squiggly line under “LGBT.”
Great. So they’re entitled to total freedom of speech and Christians aren’t?
Right. Whatever happened to, “one nation under God?”
No clue. *sigh* And all of this is in the name of “equality.”
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
