Here cometh the persecution…… February 28, 2014

…….and it’s riding the gay train, as I’ve long said.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer refused to sign a bill passed with substantial majorities in the Arizona legislature that would have extended religious freedom protections to businesses.  A law exists that covers individuals.  Since many small businesses, in particular, are merely extensions of the individual, this law would appear to make a good deal of sense.  But, caving to outside pressure, including threats to never allow another Super Bowl in Arizona, Brewer refused to sign the bill.  So, Christian cake bakers and wedding photographers can still be forced to provide services for actions they find repugnant – such as marrying two people of the same sex – under penalty of law, if they get a magistrate or bureaucrat who feels their refusal constitutes a “hate crime.”

We have traveled, as Jonah Goldberg notes, an immense distance in a historical blink of the eye.  Just a couple of decades ago, homosexual acts and the inclination itself were viewed as profoundly disordered and destructive, with homosexual acts largely illegal (if unenforced) and homosexuality rated as a mental disorder – as it had been considered for a very, very long time.

But now we have come to such a low point, those who adhere to the same Christian Dogma regarding homosexuality that practically everyone at least tacitly accepted just a few years ago, are now called Nazis and likened to Jim Crow racists by the cultural powers that be:

Speaking of unreasonableness, according to ESPN’s Tony Kornheiser, if Arizona allows bakers to refuse to bake cakes for gay couples, gays may have to wear “yellow stars” like the Jews of Nazi Germany. It would be Jim Crow for gays according to, well, too many people to list.

So merely passing a law that allows people to refuse service to those who desire their participation in acts they find morally repugnant – such as photographing a “wedding” of two men – is so completely beyond the pale those people are likened to some of the most monstrous evils in all history.

In essence, Christianity is being forcible ejected from the public square.  And since Christianity is a religion that demands public practice and witness, there will be an inevitable clash between secularists that demand we shut up (or, preferably, cease to exist) and Christians who refuse to be silenced.

It happened in Canada, and some Christians went to jail.  Most just meekly acquiesced.

This is the persecution.  Will we be stronger in the Faith than many Canadians?  Will we fight like the French?  The FRENCH!  Where are our million-person marches on the Capital opposing this state-enforced immorality?

I am out of time!

Just another politician. More concerned with votes than principal. Doesn’t matter the party affiliation today.

She took a beating over legislation against illegal immigration. That she caved on Obamacare. This surrender on protecting small businesses wasn’t surprising. This type of legislation is up in other states so hopefully, it will pass somewhere…

Has anyone noticed that all resistance is rapidly crumbing, especially since 2012? Its not just a bad political situation, but rather It appears evil has almost free reign and is making the most of it.

We can speculate why or how, but as tantumergo notes, its happening at breakneck speed. What does this mean spiritually? What’s going on here?

This is what has perplexed me too. This whole homosexual coup has occurred in a very short time. Definitely the diabolical is involved…. This is not of human origin.

So denying sodomites “marriage” is like exterminating them in concentration camps? Oh the drama *sigh*. What about the countless Christians whose businesses and lives have been destroyed b/c sodomites bully and take them to court, having them lose jobs, homes, savings, businesses and freedom? I’m thinking it’s the Christians who will be wearing the stars soon enough…or maybe a cross? I’d be proud to wear that:+) God bless~

I wish we had those massive numbers too like in France! I for one have a hard time with this issue because just hearing about it robs my children of their innocence. It absolutely kills me that children today are learning from babyhood that homosexuality is perfectly fine and normal. They won’t even question it because they’ve heard since birth that it normal. And we are not allowed to question anything anymore here in the New World Order.

Every day I pray to St. Philomena and the Blessed Mother to protect the innocence of my kids. I work extremely hard to keep them away from the constant barrage of immorality that is attacking us. The damage done when children are exposed to homosexuality and perversion at an early age is incomprehensible. Oh dear Jesus, please help us.

The M.O. of politicians is “I, ME, MY, MINE.” The veneer of civilization is crumbling.
