I have had several of my gay friends ask me, why I think gays are taking away the religious liberties of millions of americans, so this post is for you guys.
America has a proud history. One that we should all admire. Some of the first Europeans to settle in America came to Plymouth Rock to escape the religious tyranny of Britain. The people wanted freedom of religion. The revolutionary war was fought to gain our independence from Britain. The founding fathers of our country made if very clear that the United States of America was to be founded on principles of god, not government.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – Declaration of Independence
The most important aspect in establishing the United States of America is the freedom of religion. As stated in the 1st Amendment to the constitution “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
“Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens.” — President George Washington’s Farewell Address, 1796
Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.” — President John Adams, 1798
The constitution, This country, The United States of America was not designed for an immoral people. It was designed for religious, moral people, who love freedom.
Recent laws, and the celebration of sexual deviance, and homosexuality in America have led to millions of Americans being forced to support a lifestyle that is against their morals, beliefs, and religion.
Church and state are supposed to remain separate, but they are not.
- The Affordable care act requires employers to provide abortion drugs to their employees
- The Government takes away tax exemptions from churches, for not performing same sex marriages
- Nurses are being fired for refusing to perform abortions
- Catholic adoption services are dissolved for not placing babies in same sex homes
- Psychologists are fired for referring homosexual clients to another counselor
- Pharmacists lose their license for refusing to stock abortion causing drugs
These are only a few of the thousands of americans that have lost their jobs, lost income, lost rights, or privileges because of their religious beliefs.
In the words of George Washington “without religion and morality, there will be no political prosperity.”
