You Will Be Made To Care Chronicles: Religious speech in the crosshairs
Erick has written extensively on the subject of “you will be made to care.” The idea is simple. You no longer have the ability to ignore sexual perversion and cultural rot. That is not good enough. For social pathologies, like “transgender rights” and “homosexual marriage” (bestiality, incest, and pedophilia along with abortion and euthanasia are being supported by the same people who have succeeded in | Read More »
First They Shut You Up, Then You Will Be Made to Care
I have to quibble, slightly, with the Washington Free Beacon’s Sonny Bunch. In a piece last week Sonny wrote that he did not think I was quite right with my phrase “you will be made to care.” Instead, he thought it should be “you will be made to shut up.” I would suggest that he stops too soon. Yes, along the way to making people | Read More »
You Will Be Made to Care
Every want to know how campaigns target precincts and work on vote totals? In tonight’s show I explained how campaigns work behind the scenes. Then I did a pivot. From Houston to Idaho, gay rights activists are going to make you care. I dive deep tonight.
In Idaho, Christian Pastors Ordered to Perform Gay Marriages. You Will Be Made to Care.
It is one of the tenets of the current movement toward gay marriage. They get to get married, Christians are forced to provide goods and services if they demand it, but — and this is the key caveat of it all — but Christian ministers will not be forced to wed gays because of their religious concerns. That was last week. This is this week | Read More »
Even in Houston, Texas, You Will Be Made to Care
Houston, TX is not thought of as a bastion of liberalism, but it has gone quite rapidly off the deep end. Earlier this year, Houston’s City Council voted on non-discrimination legislation that provides equal protection to the entire swath of the BLTGCZQDLMAO alphabet silliness. In short, if a guy decides he’s a girl and wants to go hang out in the girl’s bathroom, it is | Read More »
You Will Be Made to Care: The Semblance of Normalcy
Having said I think gay marriage nationally is inevitable given the Supreme Court’s decision yesterday to not take any cases on it right now, a number of people questioned both my conservatism and my faith. One need not abandon either to live in the real world. It is coming. But it is important to understand why. It is not just that gay rights activists want | Read More »
You Will Be Made to Care
Vanderbilt University has decided student groups on campus cannot determine their own leadership. Consequently, a muslim can run the Christian group, a global warming skeptic can run the Earth First group, a Republican can run the College Democrats, etc. You get the idea. The rule came in part because, as you will not be surprised to learn, a Christian fraternity “had expelled several students for | Read More »
You will be “Made to Care” – about what?
The right of enjoying and defending our lives and liberties is found throughout our founding documents, as you can see “lives” born and unborn is placed first, and it is placed first and foremost for a reason. Its when these founding values become subjective, perverted and distorted we will have stepped on the slippery slope downward, we have already allowed our selves to step on | Read More »
Not Yet Made to Care
Nine months ago, I wrote a diary that received a lot more attention than I anticipated. Erick’s response to my post has since become something of a catch-phrase here on RedState, and has since made its way into the broader conservative blogosphere. “You will be made to care.” Thanks to a photographer named Elaine Huguenin, a cake maker named Jack Phillips, and a duck-call manufacturer named Phil Robertson (do I really need a link to | Read More »
Ultimately There Will Be No Option for Silence or the Sidelines. You Will Be Made To Care.
I have told you people again and again. You will be made to care. Evil preaches tolerance until it is dominant and then it seeks to silence good. Phil Robertson, patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan, honestly answered questions during an GQ interview. He spoke openly of his Christian faith. Because he offended a secular left at war with orthodox Christianity, he must be punished. | Read More »
The Political Corollary to You Will Be Made to Care
Many of you are convinced you can sit on the sidelines or quietly take the side of the Republican Establishment in the upcoming primary season. Many of you are convinced it does not matter. Many of you are convinced that the GOP will do the right thing once they have control. Many of you will be made to care by a Republican Party intent on | Read More »
You Will Be Made to Care
A Christian baker in Colorado refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding. A judge is now ordering him to do so or face financial penalties. Surely there are plenty of bakers who would bake a cake for David Mullins and Charlie Craig, the gay men who wanted the cake. But they went to Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver, CO. When Phillips | Read More »
You Will be Made to Care About Governmental Social Engineering
Yesterday, the Democrat supermajority in the Senate passed the preposterous transgendered lawsuit bill with 64 votes. The most consequential outcome of ENDA (were it to pass the House) is that sexual illnesses and subjective (“perceived”) gender preferences would now be required by the federal government to be treated as mainstream in schools and the workforce. Moreover, they would be considered a protected class, forcing private | Read More »
You will be made to care
At some point, those of you on the right who have completely ceded the field to the Democrats on so-called social issues will need to confront an uncomfortable reality. There is no floor to the licentiousness of the statist social-engineering agenda. We will not have a liberty-driven prosperous country built upon the ruins of the civil society. We can only go so far with government-sanctioned | Read More »
Yes, You Will Be Made to Care
You will be made to care about gay marriage. You may think it does not affect you or will not affect you or you can support it and leave well enough alone, but you cannot. The secular left and aggressive gay rights activists will not allow you to. You must either fully embrace it or be shunned. You may think it does not affect your | Read More »
