The treatment of Kentucky county
clerk Kim Davis who refused to issue a same sex marriage license is a warning to Christians. Like the canaries in the coal mines who let miners know when the air was getting impossible to breathe, the jailing of Kim Davis for refusing to bend to a federal judge's demand indicates exactly where this is going. Like the poisoned air in the mine threatening the life of the miners, the cultural air is poisonous for Christians. They will not be tolerated when they stand up for the natural law or listen to the voice of the people. Kentucky voters rejected same-sex marriage in 2004, but liberal judges have been making law for years. Who cares what the voters want, the bigots in black robes will make the rules even when they overturn thousands of years of moral rule. So despite the fact that the state constitution of Kentucky says marriage is between a man and a woman, Davis must bow to the liberal tyrant judge. When she wouldn't, she was jailed for contempt. But the real contempt is on the part of the judge for the Judeo-Christian ethic.
What is the reality here? Kim Davis engaged in a courageous act of civil disobedience against a mad judiciary. Suppose you were a government employee who lived in Germany in 1939 and you received an order to arrest Jews and load them on cattle cars heading for concentration camps. Would you comply? Suppose you were a doctor ordered to carry out the euthanasia laws against the handicapped. Would you participate in gassing the innocent?
Homosexuals have framed the debate as one of civil rights equal to discrimination against blacks. It's a diabolical lie. Blacks suffered because of the color of their skin, a genetic trait. Homosexuals want special privileges based on their BEHAVIOR, i.e., same-sex sodomy.
But the fact is that "gays" don't really want marriage at all. In a recent article in The Nation,
four authors outline an agenda that includes disestablishing marriage altogether. What they appear to want is for all things to be viewed through a "gay" lens: relationships, economic factors, health care, work, social issues -- all must be seen according to the LGBTQ vision. The authors promote the "progressive" left and call for crushing the right. No one may dissent from their viewpoint. Christians will bend to the beast or be fed to the lions.
Like I said, the treatment of Kim Davis is the canary in the mine. The Christians in this country will either join together to fight, or they will "hang" separately.
