First, I do not and will not promote insurrection. But I will promote active dissent, even active disobedience when it comes to maintaining the practice of one’s faith. The time is coming closer with the current situation in D.C. The D.C. council has taken upon itself the authority to decide when one can or cannot practice their religious beliefs.
Under the bill, headed for a council vote next month, religious organizations would not be required to perform or make space available for same-sex weddings.
How dare they! They should be silent on the matter. They should speak neither positively nor negatively.
But they would have to obey city laws prohibiting discrimination against gay men and lesbians. Church officials say Catholic Charities would have to suspend its social services work for the city, rather than provide employee benefits to same-sex married couples or allow them to adopt.
What an arrogant bunch of thugs! If one participates at all in civic affairs then one has to hire homosexuals! That is wrong. The Romans should stand up against the city and stand in contempt of illegal laws. Call their bluff. Let Congress, which manages D.C., come out and make its position clear. Let’s see how much statism the Left in D.C. is willing to enforce. Let’s see them throw a few people in jail for the cause of religious liberty.
