No, it’s not a bad joke. Some “Christian activists” actually walked in to a coffee bar … only to be told to leave in a foul-mouthed, sex-centered and blasphemous way.
The refusal of service, according to the owner himself, was based on the business owner’s homosexuality and his disagreement with the activists’ stance.
Tolerance at its finest. Though, of course, you won’t hear about it on the national news like you did the bakery’s refusal to make a cake … because that would be too fair wouldn’t it?
“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.” (Matthew 7:6 NKJV)
“And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:19-20)
God bless America? From the mouth of politicians that encourage sexual confusion within the hearts and minds of children? What God would be satisfied in blessing a nation that’s too confused to know where its children should go to the bathroom?
America has opened, squinted and tightly shut our eyes to what the light of God’s grace plainly reveals. Even the ostriches are laughing at the eagle with its head in the ground right above the leaking septic tank!
When godless politicians speak of God blessing America today, they do so in the same vein that Israel’s leaders of old did when they spoke of the temple being in their presence…never mind the need for repentance and righteousness, God bless America is the American motto and a motto is all the light that we need!
“The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, “Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, ‘Hear the word of the Lord, all you of Judah who enter in at these gates to worship the Lord!’” Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Do not trust in these lying words, saying, ‘The temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord are these.’” (Jeremiah 7:1-4)
So the Supreme Court decided last week that employers can’t be forced to provide employees with “birth-control” (i.e. abortion causing medication) that violates its religious convictions. Sounds like that would settle it, right? Wrong!
In a government that is notorious for gridlock, somehow one of the political parties has managed to get it all together in only a few days to produce a bill that would overturn the Supreme Court’s decision and force businesses (including certain schools, hospitals and churches) to provide whatever form of birth-control is covered (i.e. mandated) by the Affordable Care Act.
And their reasoning? Well as senator Patty Murray, of Washington state, said, ““Your health care decisions are not your boss’ business….”
So here’s my response to that statement:
- if it’s not the boss’ business then why is the boss being forced to provide it!?
- why is the boss being told it’s not their business when it is their business that’s being targeted?
- if it’s not the boss’ business then why don’t you go take care of the situation privately without forcing someone else to participate against their will?
- if it’s not the boss’ business, or anyone else’s business for that matter, then why is it the government’s business?
- and since when does someone’s “right” require the revenue of someone else?
It’s a veiled issue that forces intrusion on the basis of preventing intrusion, and it sure is amazing what riles up the dander of some politicians while other issues seem to float on down the river of moral apathy, hypocrisy and relativism.
