Every time I think our society cannot get any worse, some new decision is made by the President, the Supreme Court or the Congress that further propels us toward paganism and chaos.
Women on the Front Lines
The latest blow came when the Obama Administration decided to open up combat positions in the military to women. What insanity! Only a barbaric culture would send its women to fight its wars.
Increasingly our men are returning from warfare with deep psychological wounds called post-traumatic stress syndrome. How much more so will women, who are by nature much more emotionally sensitive than men, be impacted by the overwhelming brutality of war?
And when women are captured in combat, does anyone really believe they will be treated humanely? Of course not. They will be raped repeatedly.
Liberal ideologues are blind to the inherent differences between men and women. They believe they are simply a matter of cultural conditioning, when the truth is that God created men and women to be very different and to fulfill different roles in the home, the Church, and society.
Liberals are determined to castrate men and debase women by making men of them — all in the name of "equality." Well, men and women are simply not equal in physique or emotions.
When we start bringing home women from war who are totally traumatized or who are scarred by rape and torture or who are brought back home in body bags, maybe we will come to our senses, but I doubt it. We have just gone too far down the trail of paganism to turn back.
The same is true of the homosexual agenda. Our President has made it clear that he is not going to be satisfied until he can outlaw all criticism of homosexuality, even by preachers in the pulpit. Our courts have already ruled that homosexual "rights" take precedence over personal religious beliefs.
Take for example, the bizarre case that occurred recently in New Mexico. The case began in 2006, when a lesbian couple filed a complaint with the New Mexico Human Rights Commission after Elane Hugeinin, a local photographer who runs a small photography business with her husband, declined the couple's request to take pictures of their commitment ceremony because of her religious beliefs concerning the definition of marriage.
In 2008, the Human Rights Commission subjected Mrs. Hugeinin to a one day trial, and ultimately charged her company with sexual orientation discrimination, ordering it to pay a fine of $6,637.94 in attorney's fees to the plaintiff. The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed an appeal of the Commission's decision on behalf of the Christian photography company.
The New Mexico Court of Appeals ruled in behalf of the lesbian couple, in June of 2012. The Supreme Court of New Mexico has accepted the case on appeal. Let us pray that religious liberty will triumph in this case.
In the 2008 presidential election Obama promised "Change." He never specified what it was. He kept it intentionally vague. The American people bought the promise hook, line and sinker.
And now he is delivering what he promised, making radical changes primarily through arbitrary executive orders which are rapidly converting this nation into a secular, pagan welfare state which will soon collapse under the weight of its moral rot and its shameful debt.
