-Rubio: ‘Clear and Present Danger’ That Christianity Could be Labeled as ‘Hate Speech’

by Dr. D ~ May 28th, 2015

In an interview with CBN News, Senator Rubio talked about his fear that ‘mainstream’ Christianity and Catholic teaching could soon be labeled as ‘hate speech’ in this country:

“If you think about it, we are at the water’s edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech. Because today we’ve reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage, you are labeled a homophobe and a hater.”

Rubio pointed out that the logical end game for liberals who have already begun to persecute and prosecute individual Christians is ultimately to outlaw the faith itself.

“After they are done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church is hate speech, and there’s a real and present danger…”

Response: The tide is turning so quick in this country that my head is spinning. What Senator Rubio said would have been considered ridiculous just a couple of years ago. But really where does it go from here?

The mainstream media is currently dogging every Republican candidate for president with the question of whether they would ever attend a same-sex wedding hoping to make pariahs out of those who would refuse. Christian owned Bakeries, printers, florists, and T-shirt makers are already facing fines and business closures for refusing to participate. Then there was the recent chilling over-reach by city officials in Houston harassing pastors and demanding them to send in copies of any of their sermons touching homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

Add to that the fact that conservative non-profits have had a hard time receiving official recognition by this administration’s IRS appointees. It isn’t a long shot at all to conceive that conservative Bible teaching Christian organizations and churches in the future might be in danger of losing their tax-exempt status over being labeled as purveyors of ‘Hate Speech.’ I have already read numerous liberal/progressive articles online supporting this idea with the thought that tax-exempt status is a privilege and not necessarily required or mandated by the First Amendment of the Constitution.

All it would take is for the Supreme Court to label same-sex marriage as a ‘constitutional right’ this year and the foundation would be laid. Then if another liberal/progressive president was elected in 2016, some of these ‘outlandish’ fears could begin to become a reality. We definitely live in chaotic times where it is important for Christians to vote and to be more fervent in their prayers for America.             *Top
