Yes, I went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch today, and the place was packed. The line was out the door. I think that people are finally starting to wake up to the fact that the “gay marriage” debate isn’t so much about the nice gay guy who lives down the street wanting to live in peace with his partner, but about silencing Christians.
At the end of the day, the Bible very explicitly condemns homosexuality. For Christians, that’s the end of it. If the homosexual agenda is ever realized in this country it will have no choice but to persecute people for their religious convictions. That is the end game. The faithful will never agree to edit the Bible just because a certain group doesn’t like it that their behavior is labeled sinful.
Holding the view that Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman and that God Himself ordained this relationship isn’t hate speech, period. People are tired of being accused of the imaginary crime of “homophobia” for nothing more than declining to affirm a behavior. Christians are not out in the streets hunting down gays. Christians are not conspiring to burn gays at the stake. The only thing Christians have done is refuse to legitimize homosexual relationships.
And at the end of the day, I think I have a better answer for the gays than using the force of government to mandate the beliefs of the faithful in blatant disregard of the first amendment. How about we abolish the income tax (no marriage deduction), abolish the death tax (no tax when leaving your worldly goods to whoever you wish), and just say that whoever you want to be able to visit you in the hospital should be defined as part of your papers (isn’t everybody supposed to have a will, a living will, and all sorts of other papers on file with doctors and hospitals anyway??).
