Though you don't need a rainbow sticker on the back of your car to tell the world you are black, the gay rights movement is intent on equating the struggle for black civil rights with their own quest to redefine marriage. And it was abundantly obvious yesterday that the Supreme Court recognizes this would be a redefinition of the institution.
What also became obvious was that legal recognition of gay marriage is not the end game for the militant gay rights movement. Christianity itself must be made to care. Churches, religious private schools, private universities, and charitable organizations will be forced to give up their tax-exempt status or embrace Sodom writ large. President Obama's Solicitor General all but admitted it to the Supreme Court.
Justice Alito directed asked Solicitor General Verrilli if Christian organizations would lose their tax exempt status if they refused to recognize gay marriage. Verrilli replied, "It’s certainly going to be an issue."
You bet it is. The gay rights movement has spent a decade trying to reinterpret the New Testament and they have failed. The only churches showing consistent growth in America are the ones that still hold to Biblical inerrancy. Consequently, they must now make those churches care. They think the best way to do that is financial.
The gay rights movement will, once Anthony Kennedy hands them marriage, set about systematically destroying anyone and any business who resists. Along the way, they will yank the tax exempt status of religious elementary and secondary schools, universities, churches, and other non-profits that will not change.
Hillary Clinton, last week, said that on abortion the nation has to push churches to abandon their doctrines on life. They will do the same on homosexuality and they will use the force of government to do it.
There can be no tolerance for dissent on this issue. Churches must be made to care. They had better start planning for the day when they no longer have non-profit status. And they better start preparing their congregants on the need to stand firm.
Christians must show that they are not homophobes, i.e. they do not fear homosexuals. Christians fear the Lord and therefore must not yield to the world against him.
