As we head into a weekend where we will be relentlessly nudged and pressured to sing about how “free” we are and how much “liberty” we have here in the “land of the free” and the home of the NSA, we are well served to consider the following “American Freedom Update” as reported earlier today by Portland’s Fox 13:
“The owners of a Gresham bakery who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding must pay $135,000 in damages, according to a final order issued by the Bureau of Labor and Industries on Thursday.”
So there you have it. (See also: Get with the Big Gay Program…or suffer the economic consequences.)
This is what freedom looks like in America.
This is what liberty looks like in America.
This is what justice looks like in America.
And it won’t get any prettier from here until and unless we repent, believe and submit to Christ as King in practice.
Either He will rule over us and form our notions of law, liberty, freedom and justice…or they will, with “they” being the army of Pagan Right and Pagan Left “experts”, “leaders” and drones who are doing all that they can to encourage us to embrace the State as god in practice here in what they imagine to be “the real world”. (See: What does Jesus bring to politics, education, law, and economics?)
