Vox reports from across the pond:
Coeur d‘Alene, Idaho, city officials have laid down the law to Christian pastors within their community, telling them bluntly via an ordinance that if they refuse to marry homosexuals, they will face jail time and fines.
The dictate comes on the heels of a legal battle with Donald and Evelyn Knapp, ordained ministers who own the Hitching Post wedding chapel in the city, but who oppose gay marriage, The Daily Caller reported. A federal judge recently ruled that the state’s ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional, while the city of Coeur d‘Alene has an ordinance that prevents discrimination based on sexual preference….
“Many have denied that pastors would ever be forced to perform ceremonies that are completely at odds with their faith, but that’s what is happening here — and it’s happened this quickly,” Mr. Tedersco said, The Daily Caller reported.
This is similar to us over here. Cameron, the creep, also said it would never be forced upon Christian clergy but the left establishment has other ideas. This is a direct challenge to the Church to either fall away into apostasy and wrongdoing according to their scriptures or else do jail time. Nothing inbetween.
And of course, to go to jail for this issue – what is going to happen to these ministers inside, physically? In a place already rife with buggery?
Vox comments: “At this point, it is fairly obvious that revolution time is coming.”
Ah, Vox, not so sure. For a start, we don’t do revolution over here – we just moan about things and let the same old crooks do whatever they’ve always done to us. Have a look on May 7th.
And even if we were in revolutionary mood over here, it would not be to support any Christian, particularly as so many feel buggery is a fine thing these days. So this is shaping up for an enormous fight between half the Christian remnant against the forces of evil, with the other half of the Church – the leftist half, joining satan’s little helpers to do his will.
They don’t give a damn about gays, these Common Purpose types or whatever the equivalent is over there. This is about turning people against Christians and demanding their rights be taken away.
And over there, that is at least unconstitutional.
