How does a secular nation that protects religion, attack and destroy a specific religion? They defend a group that is opposed by that religion. Christianity cannot compromise with sin. As a famous pastor once said: "I am opposed to sin, if I have hands I will fight it, if I have feet I will kick it, if I have only teeth I will bite it, if I have no teeth I will gum it to the death. I am an enemy of SIN." Through-out Europe, Pastors and Priests are imprisoned 1-6 months, in Canada they have been fined $10,000 dollars (probably in Canadian Dollars), in America religious groups such as Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship have been banned from College Campuses: Because they have preached the word of God, the Gospel. It does not matter whether or not you agree with a religion, the fact is that for as long as there has been THE BOOK, it has preached against Homosexuality, it has condoned only marriage between a man and a woman, and this CHURCH will not yield to persecution by a people whose sin is reprehensible. Janet Folger has a speech today on Pilgrim Radio -- Strength for the Journey and has a book: [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Criminalization-Christianity-Before-Becomes-Illegal/dp/1590524683]Amazon.com: The Criminalization of Christianity: Read This Book Before It Becomes Illegal!: Janet L. Folger: Books[/ame] The Book, The Criminalization of Christianity, discusses all these offenses against the Christian Church, whatever denomination, by nations around the world; such as the United Kingdom, which imprisoned an 80 year old man and court ordered his sign with scripture from Romans on it, because it was anti-homosexual. He was imprisoned after the police were called to save him from a mob that was beating him. AN 80 YEAR OLD MAN with the BIBLE, beaten; how pathetic. The "protection" of Homosexuality is attacking Christianity. And Christianity will not yield, thus in the case of the United States, the States will be divided over this issue more violently, and more uncompromisingly than slavery ever was as an issue. Dark times are ahead, because of THIS singular issue.
