All in the name of “equality”

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.”

Duck Dynasty patriarch suspended from show after anti-gay comments

Duck Dynasty star refuses to back down on ‘anti-gay’ remarks

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

A Psalm for Advent

Out of the depths I call to you, Lord;
Lord, hear my cry!
May your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
If you, Lord, mark our sins, Lord, who can stand?
But with you is forgiveness and so you are revered.

I wait with longing for the Lord, my soul waits for His word.
My soul looks for the Lord more than sentinels for daybreak.
More than sentinels for daybreak, let Israel look for the Lord.
For with the Lord is kindness, with Him is full redemption,
And God will redeem Israel from all their sins.

Psalm 130
