The meltdowns, lawlessness, and crises are coming so “fast and furious” now you can’t keep track of them all, which is why many of you probably missed a recent development that may actually be the biggest threat of them all to our constitutional republic.
This past week, the same people who booed God at the 2012 Democrat National Convention openly declared war on their own Maker. For instead of repenting of their attempted tyranny, the statist/Marxist Left’s response to last month’s Supreme Court opinion in favor of Hobby Lobby (i.e. the First Amendment) was to remove any pretense whatsoever they still believe in the U.S. Constitution.
After previously lying…err…claiming that they’d never do anything to stop you from practicing your religion in your church, “where it belongs,” the statist/Marxist Left has openly declared war on God and those who still believe what the Word of God has to say about moral matters.
The ACLU and other anti-American groups announced they are withdrawing their support for a heinous piece of legislation known as ENDA. Because with a scant 5-4 majority of the U.S. Supreme Court still believing in the First Amendment, it’s obvious to them that ENDA in its current form wasn’t heinous enough. ENDA, which stands for the “Employment Non-Discrimination Act,” is the unholy grail of the moral depravity lobby. The immorality peddlers have been peddling various versions of this bill for years, but the end result is always the same—you will be made to care.
The intent of this legislation is for the federal government to once and for all make someone’s private sexual behavior a publicly protected class in all of Obama’s 57 states, and thus also silence once and for all any moral or religious dissent to their depravity. Oh, sure, the version passed out of the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate last year included so-called “religious exemptions.” But absolutely no one smarter than Joe Biden believes that the same people who think the Feds can order the “Little Sisters of the Poor” to pay for baby-murder also believes these people are serious about protecting religious liberty.
Now that the High Court they’ve relied on so many times before to impose their statist edicts on the American people by fiat actually sided against them for a change, these anti-American groups on the statist/Marxist Left aren’t even going to pay lip service to liberty anymore. So they will no longer support any legislation that doesn’t tell religious institutions they have to obey man and not God.
Nero would be proud.
That means if you run a Christian school with a teacher/administrator living an immoral life that undermines your mission, you can’t fire them. Like this example courtesy of Denny Burk at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary:
Last year, Azusa Pacific University (a Christian school) asked a female theology professor to leave after she began to assume a transgender identity. “Gender identity” is protected under ENDA. If ENDA were the law of the land with no religious exemptions, then it would have been illegal for this Christian school to dismiss this professor. Under ENDA, Azusa would have been in violation of federal law if they were to follow Christianity’s teaching about gender.
