Religious liberty continues to collide with gay rights six months after the Supreme Court’s landmark gay marriage ruling, seeing scattered – but feisty – rebellions around the country, with battles on new fronts expected in 2016.

He may have only “evolved” in favor of “gay” marriage when it was politically expedient, but President Obama has made LGBT history. OUT magazine photographed Obama for the cover of its 2015 “Ally of the Year” issue. The decision made him the first U.S. president to accept such an offer from an LGBT publication. See WND’s…
Republican Matt Bevin was declared the winner of a spirited contest for Kentucky governor in Tuesday’s balloting in a campaign that saw the political newcomer defeat longtime Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway. With 95 percent of the vote counted, The Associated Press called the race for Mr. Bevin with 52 percent of the vote, followed by…
At last night’s CNN GOP presidential debate, conservative Christian Mike Huckabee defended Kim Davis and her stand against “gay” marriage and slammed the Supreme Court for somehow discovering a “right” to homosexual marriage in the Constitution.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on “The Kelly File” last Thursday to defend Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk thrown in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals. Davis refuses to violate her conscience or her biblical belief that marriage is a one-man, one-woman union.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on “Hannity” last night to discuss Kim Davis, the woman jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals, the GOP loyalty oath, and more. Sen. Paul believes that there should have been a better way to deal with Davis than to jail her for her Christian beliefs about marriage as God-ordained institution of one man and one woman.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who’s been hovering around the middle of the poll pack in his bid for the White House, jumped directly into the jailing of Kim Davis – the Kentucky clerk who refused to grant same-sex marriage licenses and is now behind bars – and said Americans need to wake up to the “criminalization of Christianity” that’s coursing through the country.
“This is, I think, long from being settled and that’s why I believe this case in Kentucky may end up being the first case in which a person for their Christian convictions is going to be put in jail because they refused to bow to a decision that is suspect at best.”
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.
