I’ve got to hand it to them. If there’s anything that secular-regressives do well, it’s create outrageous, blatantly false narratives, and then use those narratives to trick the uninformed masses into joining their side of an issue.
For example, if you would prefer that doctors not be allowed to go into a woman’s womb, tear a baby limb from limb, and then suck it out with a vacuum cleaner, that’s only because “YOU HATE WOMEN”, and are waging a “WAR ON WOMEN”. Or, if you happen to be of the humble opinion, that only United States citizens should be voting for things that happen in the United States, and that citizenship should be proven before casting a vote, it’s simply because “YOU ARE A RACIST”, and “YOU HATE MINORITIES”.
The latest unintelligible accusations being vomited by the regressive-left, are the response to the Religious Freedom Restoration Acts, that were almost passed in Indiana, and here in Arkansas. From what I could gather, the laws were written to prevent private businesses from being shut down for refusing to partake in something that violates their religious convictions. The laws, in no way, would’ve given businesses the right to refuse service to someone because of that person’s chosen identity. It simply would’ve given them the right, not to partake in an activity, or an event, that violates their religious beliefs. Under House Bill 1228, a restaurant owner would’ve had some degree of legal protection for refusing to cater a homosexual wedding. The law would not however, have given that restaurant owner any protection for refusing to serve a meal to a patron simply for being a homosexual.
And there in lies the public misconception, that was caused intentionally by the regressive-left.
Immediately, as if they have a group of staff writers churning this stuff out ahead of time, the melodramatic talking points began flying, and the narrative began.
“THIS LAW WILL LEGALIZE DISCRIMINATION!”
“CHRISTIANS WANT TO PASS HATE-FILLED LAWS!”
And the silliest one that I saw: “DON’T LEGALIZE HATE!”
The Last time I checked, hate was already very much legal, and has been since the beginning of time. If you don’t believe me, just ask the Oregon baker, who was hated out of his livelihood, for refusing to partake in a homosexual wedding. Instead of politely accepting the fact that this particular baker was morally opposed to homosexual marriage and was obeying his Lord’s will, that homosexual couple had to make it personal and sue that poor baker into nonexistence. Why didn’t they just find another bakery? It’s because this issue has never been about equality, or tolerance. It’s always been about trying to force people who disagree, namely Christians, to give up their faith and submit, by any means necessary. It’s not good enough for the regressive-left, specifically the homosexual movement, to just enjoy the freedom we have in America, and to live their lives as they see fit. Real Christians love everybody for the Lord’s sake, but that’s not good enough either. They won’t be happy until biblical Christianity is dead. And since that’s not going to happen anytime soon, they want to sue, and shout, and hate, and lie, until they get their way.
To make matters worse, most of the media loves to help advance these false narratives. One local newspaper columnist even gave a fake statistic about the public’s opinion on homosexual marriage, saying that, “six out of 10 people are OK with gay marriage”, despite the fact that laws to ban homosexual marriage were passed by the people, in every state that voted on it. Here in Arkansas, 70 percent voted to ban homosexual marriage. He then proceeded to create a new Jesus to fit his ideology, instead of just being honest and saying he disagrees with the real Jesus. Then, just when I thought the drama queens in the media couldn’t get any more dramatic, another columnist tiptoed right up to the edge of insanity, and compared this situation to Central High in 1957.
Secular-regressives can’t have an honest debate about anything; and they know it. They know, that if they were to approach every discussion with honesty, they’d lose every time. What the regressive-left may not realize though, is that real Christians are immovable. Real Christians are not going to do anything that violates the teachings of the bible, no matter what laws are created. If I were a baker, there’s lots of things I wouldn’t bake a cake for; and a homosexual wedding is at the top of that list.
