    The marriage thing was just the beginning.

    Now we are looking at forced acceptance, regardless of your religious convictions. I believe this will spread to churches as well.

    A same sex couple somewhere will try to join a local church and will be turned away on biblical grounds. A lawsuit will follow seeking to render the Bible irrelevant.

    TIME MAGAZINE: AFTER GAY MARRIAGE VICTORY, KILL ‘TAX EXEMPTIONS FOR RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS’


    In a provocative piece in Time magazine, columnist Mark Oppenheimer has proposed following up Friday’s landmark Supreme Court decision imposing same-sex marriage on the nation with the abolition of tax exempt status for religious institutions.

    To justify this one-two punch against religion and Christianity in particular, Oppenheimer throws out a series of lame-duck arguments, capitalizing on a cultural climate of hostility toward churches and a generalized feeling that religion has lost its special status in American society.

    This will morph into an all out assault on the protection the 1st amendment provides for the free exercise of religion.

    It's coming.

    "Spread to churches"? The problem is, it's already in our churches.

    The church neutered itself for a tax exemption.

    Did they?

    Or did they just get a needed barrier between themselves and over zealous and hateful politicians that would tax them out of existence if they disagreed with their teachings?

    If you have a valid point to make, you wouldn't need to lie about what I said.

    Your case must be pretty weak.

    No, you changed what I said completely. That's a lie.

    No, I didn't change a word of what you said, look . . .

    Your words are still there, unchanged.

    What I did was point out your faith in Caesar to protect what God has ordained. God doesn't need Caesar to protect what's His.

    Spineless preachers might but God doesn't.

    You're only being blamed for the lies you put out. Nothing more.
