Warns of ‘demonic’ threat to society

Perhaps it takes someone on the outside looking in to accurately diagnose the spiritual state of America.

That’s what Cardinal Robert Sarah, a native of the West African nation of Guinea, did Tuesday at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., reported Catholic News Agency.

“God is being eroded, eclipsed, liquidated … “in the name of ‘tolerance’” in the U.S., he said, citing “legalization of same-sex marriage, the obligation to accept contraception within health-care programs, and even ‘bathroom bills’ that allow men to use the women’s restrooms and locker rooms.”

“Should not a biological man use the men’s restroom?” he asked. “How simpler can that concept be?”

The cardinal shifted his focus from the social and political realm to the church itself, warning against subversion of its orthodoxy and “demonic ‘gender ideology’” that threatens to wound the family unit itself.

‘Dramatic Intervention’: Christian Bakers Who Are in Court After Refusing to Make ‘Support Gay Marriage’ Get a Major Boost

Christian bakers in Northern Ireland who are fighting back against a court ruling that found them guilty of discrimination for refusing to make a cake that read “support gay marriage” are now being publicly backed by the European country’s attorney general.

Attorney General John Larkin openly defended the owners of Ashers Baking Company, a business based in Northern Ireland, during court proceedings this week, speaking out in their favor as the family works to appeal a previous decision that forced them to pay $765 in damages for “injury to feelings” to the gay activist who had requested the cake in question.

Larkin’s involvement in the case has been dubbed a “dramatic intervention” by the Christian Institute, a U.K. legal group that is representing Colin and Karen McArthur, owners of Ashers Baking Company. The attorney general detailed his rationale in court this week.

“There are very large questions about the role of conscience in all sorts of business,” Larkin told the panel of three judges who are overseeing the appeal, according to the Belfast Telegraph. ”I say very clearly, if it was a case where [the man requesting the cake] had been refused some of Ashers’ excellent chocolate eclairs because he [was] gay or perceived to be gay, I would be standing on the other side of the court.”

Bakery owners punished with $135,000 fine for refusing to violate Christian faith

Sweet-Cakes

An Oregon state official and his agency violated the U.S. Constitution in multiple ways when they assessed a $135,000 penalty against Sweetcakes by Melissa bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein for refusing to violate their Christian faith by creating a wedding cake for a lesbian duo, according to a new appeal filed in the long-running case.

“In America, you’re protected by the Constitution, and you’re also innocent until proven guilty,” said Kelly Shackelford, president of First Liberty Institute, which is working on the Kleins’ case.

Where ‘gays’ are heroes, pedophiles victims, Christians crazy

Experts say morality’s continued ‘evolution’ has no limits

Traditional morality regarding sex isn’t just collapsing, it’s being inverted.

Homosexuals, whose behavior once was illegal and reviled, are heroes. Pedophiles, considered among the lowest of the low for millennia, are being characterized as victims.

And if you think there’s something wrong about all of this, you might have a mental disorder.

It’s a perspective that Paul Kengor, a university professor, historian and author of “Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage,” argues is being pursued aggressively by Democrats.

“Once upon a time, you would have never seen a piece like this in a mainstream leftist publication like Salon. For that matter, you would have never seen a piece arguing that same-sex marriage should not only be legalized but that those against redefining marriage are mere bigoted hatemongers, or that a florist or baker or photographer who begs not to service a same-sex wedding ceremony because of religious objections should be fined, shut down or even thrown in jail. You couldn’t find a Democrat anywhere in Washington who believed such insanity.

“Now, it’s a statement of faith for Democrats today.”

Same-sex marriage ignites ‘religious persecution’ debate in Australia

A debate waged on Australian television over the fate and repercussions of “gay” marriage in the country took a fiery turn after one of the panelists, Spiked Online editor Brendan O’Neill, pointed to the intolerance of same-sex union advocates toward traditional marriage supporters, and said the scenes coming from America show religious persecution has become an acceptable part of the platform.

What was even more noteworthy: O’Neill described himself as a liberal.

State calls Christian counseling ‘harassment’

Veteran pastor dismissed, religious advice equated with sexual abuse

open_jail_door

The head of Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice has doubled down on his agency’s decision to dismiss a pastor who had been a longtime volunteer counselor to troubled youth, describing Christian counseling as “harassment.”

The state, according to the letter from Bob Hayter, commissioner of the state agency, pursues “a zero-tolerance policy against any form of sexual abuse or harassment by staff, volunteers or contractors.”

That argument justifies, he suggested, the dismissal of ordained Christian minister David Wells, who had provided voluntary spiritual counseling and mentorship to juvenile inmates under the control of the Department of Juvenile Justice for years.

Homophobic Barbarians: 10 Reasons Every Gay American Needs to Support the War Against Islamofascism

For all the screaming about intolerance and bigotry against gays here in America — driven by many people’s objection to changing the definition of the centuries-old institution of marriage — many so-called liberals don’t seem to notice the actual intolerance and murder being meted out on gays in Muslim countries. Homosexuals living in Muslim countries suffer dire consequences for coming out including whipping, banishment, humiliation and even death by stoning, hanging or familial stabbing in accordance with Islamic law. Homosexuals in the Muslim culture are encouraged to commit suicide rather than bring shame on their families.

State Orders Christian Baker To Go Through “Training” After Refusing To Decorate Cake For Gay Wedding

We are starting to see more and more examples of religious business owners being asked and sometimes forced to violate their convictions and basically abandon free market principles to provide services for couples who live lifestyles their religion condemns.

In some situations, the bakers are wrong and in some situations they have every right to ask couples to go to a different bakery.

In the following case in Colorado, a Christian baker was willing to bake the cake but just not decorate it and in this specific state gay marriage wasn’t even legal at the time.

That wasn’t good enough for the state government and they ended up sending the bakers to a form of “sensitivity training” as punishment for their crime.
