If all you had to go on was the reaction of God-hating homosexual activists and their fellow travelers, you might think nothing like Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) has ever happened before in our entire history. Of course, you would be wrong. We’ve had a federal RFRA in place since President Clinton signed it into law back in ’93, with the backing of an almost unanimous Congress, and half the states have identical laws on their books, as well. So, why is the radical Left throwing this massive hissy fit over the law in Indiana?
The answer is that with the Left, the issue is never the issue. Homofascist activists and their duped supporters are lying about the meaning of Indiana’s RFRA. They claim it’s nothing more than an anti-homosexual law that gives Christians a license to “discriminate” against homosexuals. While the merits of being wisely discriminate can be argued, it still remains that this is not what the law is intended to do. It’s not the issue. The truth is what it has been from the start. This law, while doing nothing more than reinforcing the protections of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, is a safeguard for people of conscience. That’s it.
The real issue here is members of the radical homosexual movement and their Hell-born crusade against Christian freedom and expression. That’s it, and it further entails their depraved desire to force the “normalization” of what is a degenerate, unnatural and very unhealthy behavior —homosexuality—at the expense of the rights of those who oppose it. These people have as their mission an end-run around our God-given freedoms. Since it’s not feasible, at this time, to simply outlaw freedom of speech and religion in America, these homosexual activists are a handy tool of the communist Left to effectively crush these freedoms through intimidation, lawfare, boycotts and whatever other bullish means they can contrive, short of simply abolishing our First Amendment protections.

Since Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) took office, the militant homosexual movement has made terrible gains for their sordid goals in all areas of our nation, and the homofascists are hell-bent to defend those gains from any real or perceived losses. Thus, the Left’s media machine is in full attack mode against Indiana’s RFRA. Hollywood liberals are beside themselves with self-righteous indignation. Some large companies are making a stupid scene against the law. We’re watching mass hysteria of the Left. I have no way of knowing how many of these screeching and wailing people honestly believe the lies about this RFRA and how many of them are knowingly lying about it, but the result is the same, a giant tsunami of ignorant, misguided outrage that is having the desired effect on Indiana’s leadership. Governor Mike Pence and Indiana state legislators are already doing the Republican back-peddle dance in saying they’re looking to “clarifying” the law to pacify the homofascist faction. I have news for Governor Pence. There will be no pacifying these people until Christian expression is completely outlawed in the United States.
In this, it is a great temptation for Christians to become enraged or despondent, or both. After all, this is pure lunacy, and we know it. We are truly watching the inmates run the asylum, and we feel powerless to stop it, powerless to speak truth and reason into a gaping, black hole of lies and evil insanity that pervades the air of our nation. It is now as important as ever to remember Jesus’ warning to us in Matthew 24. He told us to watch for the signs of the last days that precede His return, and what we’re now seeing is what He called “the beginning of sorrows,” a time in which iniquity will abound and the love of many will grow cold.
Terrible times are ahead, and I assure you that what we’re seeing today—the viciousness of the radical Left and the vile trouble they make for lovers of freedom—will one day be “the good old days.” But, take heart, because while all these awful things must come to pass, the Lord has already won the victory. Our job is to remain focused on Him, to spread the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to plant the seeds of the Kingdom of God while we still can. Of course, we will also work to expose and rebuke the works of darkness, but we must endeavor to grab hold of that peace the Lord gives, that supernatural peace that defies understanding in this lost and dying world.
If you don’t have that peace, if you’ve never known the true freedom that comes through Jesus Christ, then I urge you to seek Him today, while He may be found. Grab yourself a Bible, and read it with an open heart. He’s easy to find, and He dearly wants you to know Him.
