OPINION: Remember When Gay Marriage "Wouldn't Affect You?" About That...
In the midst of the effort to redefine marriage, gay activists asked traditional marriage supporters, "How is gay marriage going to affect you?"
In Marion County, Oregon a judge named Vance Day has stopped performing most weddings since marriage was redefined. Why? His Christian faith and personal beliefs maintain that marriage is between one man and one woman. Rather than gay couples seeking out a judge who will perform gay weddings, Day is being investigated. The ACLU is also casting their magnifying glass over him, hoping to find him in the wrong.
"How is gay marriage going to affect you, Judge Vance Day?"
In Rowan County, Kentucky, elected Democrat Kim Davis stopped issuing all marriage licenses to everyone after the June Supreme Court ruling. Davis, a recent Christian convert, even instructed her county staff not to issue licenses, saying that gay marriage was against her religion. Kim Davis was threatened with legal action and later held in contempt and jailed.
"How is gay marriage going to affect you, Kim Davis?"
In Portland, Oregon, Sweet Cakes by Melissa Bakery did not bake a cake for a lesbian couple. A judge ordered owners Aaron and Melissa Klein to pay $135,000 in damages to the couple. As a result, the lesbian couple said through their attorney's statement: "It sent a clear message that discrimination will simply not be tolerated in our state."
"How is gay marriage going to affect you, Aaron and Melissa?"
The above are just three recent examples of what the extreme LGBT and gay activist mafia deem "#LoveWins." They stake their rainbow flags in Rowan County, a multitude of bakeries and photography studios across the country, destroying businesses and people's livelihoods for the simple act of not agreeing with the redefinition of marriage. The gay activists then proudly declare: #LoveIsLove. Love Wins. Victory.
- If #LoveWins, then who loses?
- How is destroying a business or someone's reputation, their job, or their life "love"?
Of course "Love Wins" is patently false. It rings as true as "pro-choice," or "celebrate diversity." Slap a few pretty words on something political, then bludgeon anyone who disagrees with you in the name of "tolerance." Because who can be against "love winning"? It sounds so lovely, like a Meg Ryan movie with hearts, emails and little-boy haircuts. But who loses when "love wins"? Christians, and only Christians, who will not participate in gay marriage. Muslims, though, they get a free pass, maybe because they also hate Jews and Christians. Plus, beheadings.
Those can ruin an otherwise fabulous outfit.
Liberals will say that anyone who opposes gay marriage is a "hater" or a "bigot." Therefore #LoveWins = Hate Loses. But I don't understand how people objecting to participating in gay marriage is hatred. What about their right to chose to opt out? What about their First Amendment right to practice their faith? Or is that only allowed if you agree with the gay message? Funny, I don't remember seeing that asterisk on the amendment...
Private businesses have been targeted by #LoveWins. County officials have been targeted by #LoveWins. The gaystapo is on the rainbow-painted war path against Christians. Think your church is safe? Think again, because those are next.
So...how will gay marriage affect you?
