The United States of Sodom

As the SCOTUS continues to push us closer to Civil War II, I have to wonder if the liberal justices on the court even consider the ramifications of their decisions.

Allowing gays to marry is a direct violation of the 1st amendment! Every religion (that hasn't been liberalized itself) is against homosexuality. Christian, Muslim, Orthodox Jew, and Hindu for sure (which covers about 90% of the world's religious population) are anti-homosexual. How do we as Americans now freely practice our religion if forced to accept gay marriage?

And that is the next question. As a minister that conducts real marriages (1 man and 1 woman) am I going to be forced to perform gay marriages as well? Am I going to be sued by a gay couple that I refuse to marry?

The justices apparently are not considering the constitution in these cases. And they certainly aren't thinking about the domino effect and long-term consequences.

It really is a morally sad day in America. We should change our name to the United States of Sodom. We now are on our way to Sodom and Gomorrah. I pray the Lord returns to end this madness. And soon.

Supreme Court Lost Now Too

Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories.
-Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 14, 1781

Government is run amok. We are currently in a period here in the United States that Jefferson and James Madison, among others, feared the most. That is a period of an oppressive government bent on taking from some and giving to others.

The Socialist in Chief is already a lost cause. The Republicans aren't far behind him in their spineless bowing to the executive branch. And now the Supreme Court, the last bastion of hope for preserving the United States of America that was founded in 1776, is also lost. And so close to July 4th.

Upholding the Obamacare subsidies is beyond the pale. Decisions like this are the kind of decisions that cause the unity of the union to be called into doubt. States secede. Lines are drawn. Arms are taken up. Welcome to the 2015 edition of 1861.

The words of Thomas Jefferson ring in my ears:

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

Tyranny is here. And our only option might be to resort to the last option we have, especially since there are renewed efforts to to remove our right to keep and bear the arms. The very arms that we may need to take up.

When all hope is lost, the only hope we have is to restore hope ourselves...............
