The ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ Is An Exercise In Tyranny, And Everyone Knows It

It’s not hard to game out what happens if the misnamed Respect for Marriage Act passes, codifying Obergefell and enshrining gay marriage in federal law. Everyone, including the dozen Republican senators who voted to advance the legislation last week, knows exactly what will happen. It’s not some big mystery.

What will happen is this: Christians, Jews, Muslims, and anyone else who dares maintain that marriage is a lifelong conjugal union between one man and one woman — the definition of marriage for thousands of years until the U.S. Supreme Court descended from Mount Sinai with Obergefell v. Hodges inscribed on stone tablets — will be branded a bigot and driven from the public square and marketplace.

Anyone who owns a small business related to the wedding industry — photographers, bakers, website designers, venue owners, caterers, florists — will be sued into oblivion if they refuse services to same-sex couples. Religious colleges and universities will lose their tax-exempt status. Religious institutions of every kind, if they hold to their teachings and traditions about marriage, will face an onslaught from the Department of Justice and the federal bureaucracy.

God will hold this nation accountable.

Sadly, but honestly….we’ve “had it coming” for decades. God has demonstrated enduring patience beyond measure already.

We are 100% ripe and deserving of his vengeance; all this adminsistration did was remove the glossy, shiny coat Americans have pretended to have and drag our contempt of the almighty and love of perversion out into the open.

His mercy and grace are definitely unmeasurable.
65-70 million babies murdered and the biggest producer of pornography alone scream judgment from a Holy , Righteous, and Just God.

Thank You Lord, that You will judge perfectly. Man, as corrupt as we are can’t judge perfectly because men are lover’s of self, of power, position and wealth. God will not allow temptation as man does! No amount of begging, pleading, bargaining or promising of this for that will matter one iota!

I can’t imagine those who face Him even trying to bargain, seeing Him as Holy and as mighty as He is! But now, those who refuse Christ continue on as if their power and position will never end! It’s crazy to me how they believe they will just go on without being held accountable!

And we must continue to pray for them! And there are many times when I admit its almost impossible to do! But we are commanded to do so!

”For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”

I hate this legislation. I fear it may be a step toward more acceptance of pedophilia or worse.
Exactly.
They are already starting to call it "young love" in alot of places. You know how they like to change words and definitions to facilitate their salacious wickedness.
Ever since they allowed same sex marriage , America has continue to fall further and further into sexual depravity. It will only get much , much worse.

There is nothing that is off limits to the alphabet mafia.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”

They want to be referred to as MAPS, "minor attracted peoples". Doesn't have the stigma of pedophiles.

I believe what the U.S. is going thru now is due to sin and unbelief. It's so sad and so easily fixed, just be a normal person, work hard, and love the Lord.
Do communities with those kinds of people even still exist anymore? Christianity seems like it's dwindling at such a rapid pace that it seems like we're just spread out all over.

I'm very fortunate to live in such a community. I'm sure there are some dingbats running around, but overall, the surrounding 15-mile radius is very family oriented, Christian, and loving. I am blessed.
