Supreme Court says I'm a Bigot!



The Supreme Court of the United States has just ruled that I’m a bigot. You see, I believe in God. In God’s Word he says that man shall not lie with a man as with a woman. He calls it an abomination. But the Supreme Court says men can marry men and women can marry women.

It’s been stated here before that what people do behind closed doors is their business between them and God. I don’t need, nor do I want to see it though. If you want to be gay, have at it. But keep it private. Do not ask me to sanction something that I don’t believe in. Marriage is not a right. It’s a privilege.

If we follow the Supreme Court ruling are we to believe that when we die, we don’t stand before God but instead we stand before the Supreme Court? When people say “he has gone to meet his maker” do they mean he’s gone to the Supreme Court?

Churches are going to be in trouble in this country eventually. If they follow the Bible, they will not be able to perform marriages between same sex couples without defying God. I think I’d prefer to defy the Supreme Court rather than to defy God.

Some businesses will be in trouble. If a caterer refuses to cater a wedding between a gay couple because they choose to follow God rather than the Supreme Court, they will be sued and lose. They will be labeled a bigot and their businesses ruined.

Two days ago the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said that Climate Change Deniers are not normal. Now, I’m not a climate change denier. I know it changes. In March or April it begins to warm up here. We call that spring. In June or July it gets warmer still and is called summer around here. Then in October or November it starts getting cooler and that’s called Autumn. Around Christmas and especially in January and February it gets really cold and it’s called Winter. So I’m not a climate change denier. It does change. With the seasons. But is there man made global warming? I don’t believe so. The science is not conclusive as they’d have us believe. It stretches credibility to believe that we can destroy the earth by burning our leaves in the fall. So according to the head of the EPA, Gina McCarthy, I'm not normal. 

If they pass gun control to restrict sales to those with a mental disorder, and the government is now saying I'm not normal and a bigot, I'll not be able to buy a gun. But someone else has to buy my health care if I lower my income down. 

I have never looked down at anyone that is gay. I have had friends in the past that claimed to be gay. I didn’t need to know that. They only needed to know that I’m not IF they were expecting more from me than being a friend or acquaintance. Luckily, I’ve never had anyone believe that I was gay.

Since 2004, the people in 32 states have voted that marriage is between a man and a woman. The PEOPLE chose! The courts have overturned the people's vote and now the Supreme Court. Only two states, Maryland and Maine in 2012 have voted for same sex marriage. Following all of those elections where gay marriage lost, the news pundits said little. When two states chose to make same sex legal, the pundits declared it that it reflected a nationwide change of opinion. The act passed in Maryland with 51.9% of the vote. In the 32 states that banned gay marriage by a vote of the people, you see votes in the 60% range, 70% range and a few in the 80% range...all overturned by the courts and now by the Supreme Court. The people spoke and the government said, "shut up". 
If someone asks our opinion about gay marriage and if we give it, they will consider us a bigot. It’s already started on some of the talking head programs.

So I guess I should just come right out and admit now that I’m a bigot. I’ve never had anything against blacks, Asians, Mexicans or any other race. I’ve never even had anything against gays other than I wouldn’t approve of that lifestyle but I don’t remember anyone ever asking my approval. But now, thanks to the Supreme Court, I am labeled a bigot for even having the belief that it’s wrong. But to say it out loud, I guess puts me in the same boat with the KKK.

I remember the good old days when I didn't have the thought police monitoring my thoughts and labeling me as something because I have some different beliefs than others. Now, it appears we are all to be cut from the same cookie cutter or else. Remember when America used to be free?
