Choosing sides...

From USA Today...

A nation founded by pilgrims who came here to worship the God of the Bible freely without interference and persecution from ruling elites and those opposed to Christianity's influence on the culture, has now come to the proverbial fork in the road. After years of attempting to balance traditional Americana with political correctness, those pushing the new "my way or the highway" definition of "tolerance" have decided accommodating our differences of opinion is defeat.

Your Say: 'Duck Dynasty' lessons in tolerance, intolerance

Irrefutable history documents that the Bible and its teachings were the biggest influence on those that founded the freest and most prosperous nation in human history. Yet nowadays if you believe that same Bible is true you will either silence your beliefs, or you will be silenced. Just ask Phil Robertson, one of the stars of Duck Dynasty, among the most successful shows on TV.

In an interview with GQ, Robertson plainly repeated simple truths that are fundamental to western civilization — the Bible calls all sexual activity outside of holy matrimony sin and immoral, and it's natural for a man to be attracted to a woman. You know, the birds and the bees.

For that, the tolerance mob demanded his head on a platter, and the wannabe King Herods that work at A&E, the network that made untold millions off of Robertson's enormous popularity, gladly obliged. When we have now come to the point that pop culture would rather bow at the altar of rabid political correctness than make a profit, then we have reached a point of no return as a people.

Especially in an era when government believes it has the power to compel a Christian baker to make wedding cakes for homosexuals, compel a Christian photographer to photograph a homosexual union in a state that doesn't even recognize them, and tell a Christian company it has to provide birth control to its employees in violation of its owners moral conscience. We have reached the point where government believes it gets to play God.

Read the rest here.  It's a good article.


My son and I were walking through the woods this morning talking about the state of America.  He use to think I was a paranoid nutcase.  He was in denial.  Not so much anymore.  We are on the same page, more or less.  I mentioned to him that we are all being put into a position of having to choose sides.  There is not going to be any "neutral" in what is coming.

People are still denying there is a problem here in the good ol' US of A.  Those people are either stupid or they are in denial.  I cannot imagine that there is anyone left in this country who cannot see the writing on the wall.

I'll agree that people are in denial, even stupid people would be able to partially comprehend the fast approaching ugly.

I stopped talking to most people about this over a year ago, if they don't want the future to upset their illusion, that's their problem.
