There is a battle for our religious liberty here in the United States and in Western Europe as well. Western governments are moving forward to criminalize religious beliefs the elitist establishment disagrees with, and right now the point of the spear in attacking religious freedom is same-sex marriage. The Obama administration may be ready to have the IRS pass rules that would take away the tax-exempt status of social conservative organizations if they say certain types of sexual acts are morally wrong.

Last week, Congressman Steve King (R-IA) was on CNN to discuss illegal aliens, same-sex marriage and a variety of other issues involving national security and social conservative issues. The CNN host relentlessly challenged King on his views. If only CNN hosts would do the same when Hillary Clinton is being interviewed. Instead, they toss softball questions to Hillary and let her lies go unchallenged.
Last week’s mystical edict from the Supreme Court that imposed “gay” marriage on all 50 states, is only a symptom of a much more serious problem with the leftist dominated Court.
According to Huckabee, “While some cowardly politicians wave the white flag and surrender to this unconstitutional, out-of-control act of judicial tyranny, I reject this decision and will fight from ‘Day One’ of my administration to defend our Constitution and protect religious liberty.”

Not only are the Court’s opinions untethered from reason and logic, they are also alien to our constitutional system of limited and divided government. By redefining the meaning of common words, and redesigning the most basic human institutions, this Court has crossed from the realm of activism into the arena of oligarchy.
“I continue to believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. The Supreme Court’s overreach into decisions that should be made by states and the people living and voting in them is disappointing. Moving forward, we must ensure families and religious institutions across America are not punished for exercising their right to their own personal beliefs regarding the traditional definition of marriage.”
But what really astounds is the hubris reflected in today’s judicial Putsch. The five Justices who compose today’s majority are entirely comfortable concluding that every State violated the Constitution for all of the 135 years between the Fourteenth Amendment’s ratification and Massachusetts’ permitting of same-sex marriages in 2003.
“It is a tragic and ominous day for the United States when a decision by five unelected justices of the U.S. Supreme Court blatantly violates the law in order to destroy the foundational building block for society provided by Nature and Nature’s God – that was stated as divine law by Moses and Jesus. Our nation has been blessed with liberty, opportunity, power, and individual prosperity beyond any other nation in history. Both Moses and Jesus stated that it was God’s law that ‘a man will leave his father and mother and a woman will leave her home and the two will come together as one.’ That defined marriage.
To argue same-sex marriage won’t affect anyone but those in a same-sex relationship is either naïve or just plain dishonest. It directly conflicts with the long-standing traditions and teachings of many faiths, setting up a collision with the First Amendment guarantee of religious liberty. Even prior to this Supreme Court decision, there are many examples of businesses fined, penalized or economically terrorized because the owners held to their convictions about marriage based on their religious views.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was one of several presidential candidates who spoke over the weekend at the Road to Majority Conference in Washington, D.C. During his speech, Cruz described his defense of religious liberty while Solicitor General of Texas and warned that the IRS will go the tax-exempt status of religious groups that oppose homosexual marriages.
