4th Of July Musings

I did not celebrate Independence Day. There is nothing to celebrate.

Rather it should be a day of mourning for what once was.
America is toast.
We are no longer free.
The document that secured our freedoms has been trashed, pounded into dust by self serving politicians, craven judges and an uncaring populace.

The latest Supreme Court decision on on same sex marriages was celebrated and hailed by perverts and poo-pooed by ignorant pundits who did not bother looking into the warnings of the minority opinion. What will happen with this landmark decision is that the constitutional freedoms of religion   and free speech, both 1st Amendment rights, have just been cast into the dung heap of History.

Quite frankly, Chief Justice Roberts hits the nail squarely on the head with this in his dissent:
Those who founded our country would not recognize the majority’s conception of the judicial role. They after all risked their lives and fortunes for the precious right to govern themselves. They would never have imagined yielding that right on a question of social policy to unaccountable and unelected judges. And they certainly would not have been satisfied by a system empowering judges to override policy judgments so long as they do so after “a quite extensive discussion.”
Marriage was created for one purpose, to procreate, that is, replace the aging population by promoting and protecting the most beneficial family environment for rearing children - a union between a man and a woman. This is true throughout human history, even in cultures that embraced homosexuality, such as the ancient Greeks. The continuance of any civilization is dependent upon procreation; if there is insufficient renewal, that civilization dies within a few generations.

But what really should alarm every American who believes that homosexual intercourse is a sin is this nugget from  Roberts:
Respect for sincere religious conviction has led voters and legislators in every State that has adopted same-sex marriage democratically to include accommodations for religious practice. The majority’s decision imposing same-sex marriage cannot, of course, create any such accommodations. The majority graciously suggests that religious believers may continue to “advocate” and “teach” their views of marriage. The First Amendment guarantees, however, the freedom to “exercise” religion. Ominously, that is not a word the majority uses.
This is very important. We can "teach" and we can "advocate" but the 1st Amendment right to "exercise" our religious beliefs may have just disappeared courtesy of five liberal judges, one of whom is a sodomite. Indeed, lawsuits will flourish as sodomites will flock to churches to insist that their unholy unions be sanctified. Churches and para-religious organizations (hospitals, colleges, adoption agencies, etc.) will lose their tax exempt status.

Of course the sodomites will target Christian outlets; Christians are low hanging fruit and there is little consequence in offending them. It should get interesting if they decide to go after the mosques.

I can see where any discussion expressing doubt about the legitimacy of homosexual behavior will be criminalized as hate speech. That'll just about do it for the 1st Amendment.

NOTE: Interesting enough, of the three female Justices (Sonia Sotomayor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan) only Ginsburg is married and has borne children.

Christians certainly are the target. We have an out-of-control government holding hands with these black robed mullahs and an obedient media.
