Today I received word that for the safety of the drivers of the big rigs all "Yes On 8" signs on the back of the trailers must be removed. Too many drivers are being attacked by supporters of "No On 8," and in the latest incident a bottle was thrown at one of the drivers.
One of the arguments in support of Gay Marriage before Proposition 8 won in California was that it won't affect those of you that have a moral obligation to attempt to preserve the sanctity of marriage. "Gays," they said, "only want to have the opportunity to marry. It will not affect you, or your children."
In California the voters approved Proposition 8 which amends the state constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. Had Prop. 8 lost, the proponents of the proposition would have accepted it and planned for the next attempt through the voters to define marriage as between a man and a woman - and the Gay Community would have proclaimed victory and cried out that they had the will of the people on their side. . . but the homosexual community lost, and they became violent.
After church on Sunday, leaving the parking lot, on the sidewalk Gay Rights Activists slammed their hands on cars, screamed "haters" and profanity, and were flipping us off as we tried to pull out on the street.
Why has the Gay Agenda become an image of thuggery and anarchy?
Is it because Christians, Mormons, and other folks who support preserving traditional marriage, rejected justifying their immoral activity. The gays, who said that gay marriage would not affect us, have decided that either I denounce my faith and turn my back on thousands of years of Biblical teachings, or else I deserve to be painted with profane language, and injured through violent means.
Remind me again who the haters are?
I have not removed the "Yes On 8" sticker on the back of my rig but will out of respect to the company and their concern over the safety of the drivers - and I will place that "Yes On 8" sign/sticker on the back of my personal truck. I will not have my freedom of speech removed by a bunch of violent people bent on moving our society into a direction of degradation.
I would not expect an "Honesty Club" to be forced to admit liars into their ranks, so why should Gays be able to defile the Institution of Marriage, a union blessed by God? And why should I be forced by them to turn my back on my faith because of their violent tantrums?
Homosexuality is a wrong behavior, just as any other behavior (take your pick: lying, cheating, stealing, violent, disruptive, etc.) And it is a behavior that is having adverse affects on our society, and can cause harm to the development of children in our society by them being exposed to such activities.
Political Vindication also had their experiences with the Propostion 8 foes HERE, and have an interesting piece about Christians chased out of a neighborhood in San Francisco while a times trying to physically molest them in the process HERE, all the while shouting "Shame on you."
Shame on us for trying to uphold moral values? Shame on you for trying to force your immorality upon society through violent force and thuggery.
Luke 21:12 - . . . they will lay their hands on you and persecute you. . .
Luke 21:16-17 - You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death. And you will be hated by all for My name's sake.
Isaiah 5:20,21 - Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and prudent and shrewd in their own sight!
1 Timothy 4:1-3 - Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
Micah 3:1-2 - Is it not for you to know justice? You who hate good and love evil.
