More presidential candidates are starting to talk about the Left’s war against Christianity, and how the homosexual agenda threatens liberty in America.
From CNS News:
Conservative Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said that in America today if you do not support homosexual marriage, “you are labeled a homophobe and a hater,” and that the next step in that strategy is “to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity” constitute “hate speech.”
“We are at the water’s edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech,” said Senator Rubio in a May 26 interview with CBN News.

“Because today we’ve reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage you are labeled a homophobe and a hater,” he said, adding, “so what’s the next step after that?”
“After they are done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church, is hate speech and that’s a real and present danger,” said Rubio.
I’m not a big fan of Marco Rubio after he tried to shove amnesty for invaders down the throats of Republicans and his “gang” called people who believe in the rule of law “racists.” But credit should be given where it’s due, and he got this one absolutely right.
Of course, he isn’t the only Republican candidate who realizes there’s a big target on the back of Christianity in Leftist culture.
Texas Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz has already been talking about this.
Anyone who doesn’t have their head stuck in the sand can see what Progressives are about. Even the Left realizes it…they just aren’t brazen enough to admit it yet.
Censoring of biblical teaching has already happened in Canada, where Christian radio ministries can’t tell the truth about homosexual behavior without running afoul of Canadian speech repression, and where Christians have been arrested for speaking the truth about homosexual behavior.
The persecution and censor has already happened in our parent country of England, where it is illegal to tell the truth about homosexual behavior, and things have apparently gotten so bad that you can be arrested even without proof, just on the allegation of “homophobia” by a homosexual activist.
From the British Daily Mail:
A Christian street preacher revealed today how he was arrested and held in a cell for 11 hours after a lesbian falsely accused him of homophobia.
Rob Hughes, 38, was speaking in Basildon, Essex, when the woman said she was ‘gay and proud’ and he should ‘get down off your pedestal, you judgmental **** – homophobia is not in this town’.
However Mr Hughes – who had a voice recording of all he had said while preaching for 20 minutes that day – had not referenced homosexuality.
Mr Hughes said: ‘I was taken to the police station, processed, mugshot, fingerprints, DNA, the whole works. I was in a cell for about 11 hours, and then my solicitor finally arrived.
Don’t you just love the “tolerant” Left?
They’re so “tolerant,” they’ll have you arrested if you tell the truth about their immoral behavior. You don’t have to have them arrested for their “tolerance” to kick in. You don’t have to assault them for their “tolerance” to kick in. You don’t have to deny them their God-given rights for their “tolerance” to kick in.
All you have to do is tell the truth about their dangerous and immoral behavior, and they’ll have you arrested on their word alone–they don’t even need to present any proof to have you hauled off.
Of course, you know the Left will obfuscate and attempt to deceive by stating “Oh, but that’s in other countries.” Uh huh.
And how many thousands of times have we heard from the Left: “We need to be like other socialists countries!”?
And in how many ways have we been marching in the direction of other repressive countries with government takeovers of the health care industry, the auto industry, the finance industry? With attacks on religious freedom to enforce the Leftist agenda? With the trampling of private property rights to push the homosexual agenda?
Leftist tyranny is here, and it’s only a matter of time (maybe not that long) until what Rubio warned about arrives.
When most Democrats support criminalizing “hate speech,” and 37% of “Republicans” (i.e. liberals in Republican clothing) also support criminalizing telling the truth about homosexual behavior, it may not be long at all (unless good people stand up and start being as vocal as the minority Left).
Constitutions and amendments to protect freedom are of no use whatsoever if a people are too stupid and/or too corrupt to ensure their own nation’s highest law is enforced.
As President and signer of the Declaration of Independence John Adams said:
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Or put more simply by Benjamin Franklin:
Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.
Hint: We can’t embrace immorality (much less force immorality on people) and remain a virtuous people.
