-A Shifting Definition of Religious Freedom?

An article by Eric Metaxis in the Christian Post cites some of the latest responses to religious freedom and same-sex marriage. The involvement of the media in the whole process seems to be escalating to a new level where Christians are now being persecuted and silenced when it comes to this issue. Some radical writers are now blatantly questioning whether religious freedom should be curtailed when it comes to homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Metaxis writes that this is tantamount to the establishment of a new mandatory ‘established religion’ in America. In some instances government civil rights laws are forcing a change but mostly it is coming though new cultural PC dictums. From the CP article:

It’s almost become a part of the weekly news cycle: American citizens publicly tarred and feathered for professing their sincerely held religious beliefs.

Just this month, we watched a family-owned pizzeria close its doors after its owners received hate mail and death threats from around the country. Their offense? Giving the wrong answer to a question about whether they’d cater a gay wedding. Keep in mind that the restaurant had never actually turned down a gay customer. They were hammered for holding the wrong beliefs about a hypothetical scenario!…

The message is clear: not only should Christians remain silent about gay marriage if we know what’s good for us, but we must be made to agree with and even celebrate what Scripture calls sin.  …

Response: Metaxis in his excellent article questions what it will be like for conservative Christians to stand up for their beliefs in the future following the presumed ruling by the Supreme Court supporting same-sex marriage this summer. Like myself, he believes that it is time for silent Christians to stand up and be counted.              *Top
