No we cannot Humphreys. For they were clearly working on it in the same manner and with the same cheering section in the media, politics, and in Higher education and other spokespersons.
Trying to use or overlay another law on the Law of the Land...just as did the Ancient Hebrews in the manner I mentioned in my previous post.
He wasn't arrested, was he? So, he has free-speech, he said what he wanted to say and has faced the ramifications (both positive and negative) for it.
Yes he has faced the ramifications of it.....except that this time the people of this nation have had enough and spoke out ...finally.
You don't suppose homosexuals occasionally feel intimidated and bullied by Christians too?
Not a very good try or attempt here Humphreys...but it is public education standards or non standards.
For you see Humphreys...you do not change the world by becoming the thing you hate in others...unless you finally win...destroying everything in the madness to win.
I think people are beginning to see this ..about the MSM, Politicians, and this group. That they are not the product advertised.
The key to this continuing in the programmed manner by social engineers is to let the fervor die out and create or cause events to get this back on the proper social track ..the track these groups and politicians want or desire. Never let a good crisis go to waste.
How far does prohibiting the free exercise of religion go? If Islam tells believers to kill non-Muslims for instance, should the government try to prohibit that, or not? Seems pretty ridiculous to me that religion should get special treatment in any way. I as an individual, whether straight or homosexual, should not have to have my rights suffer in any way because you decided to adopt an absurd set of beliefs and protect them under the label of "religion".
This is not Islam ..nor is it drama techniques Humphreys. However...government is clearly trying to establish their religion and beliefs over on a people and supplant the religious beliefs of these people with the new government religion..and to do so devoutly/zealously ..by default. This is exactly what the Hebrew leadership did so long ago..our government is attempting to do today...for political lucre.
For it is clear here Humphreys that many governments in different states, under oath, are threatening openly and publically to operate outside their oaths and openly discriminate against a person and their company for excercising their First Amendment Rights. All this under an implied law...another law...which is a moral law...implied...and not actual...by someones "Feelings." "Emotions." This is becoming very popular today with few catching on to it's pattern. Trial by press and public opinion...contrary to the written law. If anything ..written law is to be disregarded and overthrown..ignored in favor of this new Higher Law.
The name for this kind of thing Humphreys..is revolution..overthrow. And it is being done and sponsored now by our leadership...and filtering down.
As an Englishman I am not well versed in US laws and such, but I did think there was supposed to be a separation of church and state, which I took to mean in some respect that the religious beliefs of Christians should not interfere with the rights of its citizens, or influence its laws.
Hmmmm...public schooling here Humphreys. Let us look at it again...
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Notice here how the limitations are on the Government ....not on the people?? Notice that Humphreys?
As a matter of fact...notice how the first ten Amendments are all restrictions on the government and not on the people.
This is very very different from most forms of government where the people are subjects and not sovereign. Where the government has all power over the people and the people have "Privileges" granted by the sovereign. This is not the case here in America.
But our government like many whores is trying to sell us down the drain and establish themselves and their religion...for power and control. The government is attempting to return to Divine Right of Kings....absolute power in the hands of a few men.
In short...they are trying to make us Englishmen and Continentals. After the world..after the god of this world. By supplanting our religious beliefs with government religious beliefs.
Did not Oliver Cromwell put a stop to this in the English Civil war...Divine Right of Kings..absolute power..or have wise men and intelligences..educated peoples.. found a new way to try to insert it back into vogue?? You know...Enlightened people!!??
People who have gotten past a public school education can see this going on in front of them.
Why should I be negatively affected by what your book tells you is right and wrong, when I neither believe in your religion or the morals of your book? The default position should be equality for all, it seems, and religion is truly standing in the way of that.
That is clearly not where government is going with this Humphreys as they attempt to overlay their religion over everything. Secular Humanism.
In a nutshell, if the best reason for establishing a law is "it says in the Bible XYZ", as appears to be the case regards homosexual marriage, then that law should be revoked immediately as this is clearly religious nonsense interfering with the rights of everyone.
No Humphreys. It is clearly government religious nonsense ...under the guise of trying to keep the rights of everyone ..while only establishing more government and feudalism over the people. Absolute power in the hands of men.
It is contrary to many aspects of Amendment One..not just freedom of religion. It is government establishing its official religion over everyone. Which is why it is religious nonsense.
It's wonderful to see a rich guy speaking out against his gay oppressors.
This kind of thing looks good initially..but it does not explain how and why the pro gay oppressors went after that beauty contestent with such fervour and devout religious zeal. For she was not rich.
You do not establish the moral high ground by becoming the thing you hate and then carrying on as if this is an entitlement.
People have seen this for themselves. The veil has come down with Chick Fil A.
Like many out here ...you too are attempting the good cop/bad cop routine with predictability.
Rich man/ poor man.
Exactly what our whorish government is trying to do to divide us. It gets wolfie when you have seen enough of it...with predictability.
