FURTHER ON THE GAY MARRIAGE FRONT...

SPECIAL POST

Linda Barnette has issued marriage licenses in Grenada County, Mississippi for 24 years. On Tuesday, she resigned, thereby setting herself up for fines and possible jail time.  She considers herself to be a devout Christian and flatly refuses to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.  “I am a follower of Christ and I believe strongly that the Bible is my final authority.  The Bible teaches that a marriage is to be between a man and a woman. Therefore, because of the recent ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court, I can no longer fulfill my duties as Circuit Clerk and issue marriage licenses to same sex couples.”  

“Christians are being put to the test,” she said. ‘We’re going to see the true Christians who stand. It’s going to be time to stop talking the talk. It’s going to come down to that.” 

You can expect that either the county or local gay activists will bring civil and, possibly, criminal charges against her based on discrimination, bigotry and violation of the Supreme Court ruling. 

I congratulate her for sticking by her religious beliefs.  

I have had an epiphany of my own.  Up to this point, I have been of the "live and let live" philosophy: If gays want a civil ceremony, let them have it.  But, I have now changed my mind.  I stand with Linda Barnette. 

I have been a strong, hard and fast advocate of the Constitution, saying that if you want to change it, amend it.  But, when you assess the situation, where do we mere mortals get the right to change the Word of God?  There's nothing in the Bible which provides for amendment.  Those who seek to alter the Word based on "changing times" fail to understand that most of today's problems in society stem from the lack of moral and ethical conduct.  

So, either you're going to stand up for your beliefs, or you're not.  This is where the rubber meets the road, where true men and women get separated from girls and boys.  

That's MY AMERICAN OPINION, respectfully submitted.  

SOMETHING TO PONDER THIS 4TH OF JULY

ALREADY IT BEGINS: GAYS VS. CHURCHES

SPECIAL POST

In Danbury, U.K., a gay couple is suing to force their church into performing their gay wedding.  Both attend St. John the Baptist Church, a branch of the Church of England, and have been in a civil partnership since 2006.  Barrie Drewitt-Barlow said that he and his partner Tony, “feel we have the right as parishioners in our village to utilize the church we attend to get married.

You can bet your sweet petunias that, although this is occurring in England, every gay couple in the United States is following this story and salivating over the prospect of being among the first to file a similar lawsuit in the United States.  They are not satisfied with the Supreme Court decision requiring all states to recognize and allow gay civil marriages.  This is not about having the right to marry; it's about tearing down religious institutions and fundamental rights of the American people.  

That's why there is a push on to destroy the Bill of Rights.  If you will notice, immediately after the Supreme Court decision, Philadelphia's PENNLIVE, a major publication, decided to strictly limit op-eds that were against gay marriage; it wants to undermine the First Amendment.  Obama and the left-wing liberals want to abolish the Second Amendment.  With the recent ruling, both the Ninth and Tenth Amendments have already been summarily crushed.  

These attacks on the foundations of our American Democracy have been underway for several decades.  Americans have turned their attentions away from protecting our government and our way of life to looking for quick rewards, technological toys and easy money.  This constant and urgent quest for instant gratification has dulled the country's awareness of what is really going on in Washington. 

It is only a matter of when, not if, our country falls totally into the hands of fascist socialists and our government of the people, by the people and for the people is dissolved from the face of the earth.  

That's MY AMERICAN OPINION, respectfully submitted.

SUPREME COURT RULINGS TOTALLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL

SPECIAL POST

According to the Tenth Amendment,“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” The Ninth Amendment reads: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." 

That is plain English.  Yet, the Supreme Court, in dealing with ObamaCare and gay marriage, trampled both Amendments.  In doing so, lengthy opinions were issued which changed the meanings of "plain English" and stretched judicial reasoning beyond the limits of insanity and tolerance.  

Whether or not you agree with the outcomes, the Court had no authority, implied or otherwise,  to render those decisions.  

This is the most egregiously activist Supreme Court since the Earl Warren Court, and may even surpass that notoriety. 

This is the biggest damage to American  Democracy in my lifetime, and I totally and firmly resent it. 

That's MY AMERICAN OPINION, respectfully submitted.

REVOLUTION? STATES SHOULD REFUSE TO HONOR SUPREME COURT DECISION

 SPECIAL POST

Alaska, Washington, New Mexico, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland, D.C., and Maryland all recognized gay marriage prior to Friday's Supreme Court ruling... that's 15 states and the District of Columbia.  The remaining 35 states either had laws against it or were in the process of litigating, which means they are against it. 

If those 35 states stick together and ignore the Supreme Court decision on the basis of Constitutional  State Rights, just what is this illustrious fascist government going to do about it?  

That's MY AMERICAN OPINION, respectfully submitted.
