Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Our founding fathers were very wise men. The free exercise of religion is the very foundation that our nation is built upon.
Religious freedom is a fundamental human right.
It is not a right given to us by the government, it is a right bestowed upon us by God to all men everywhere.
What many people fail to realize is that when you take away the freedom of religion, you are literally pulling the carpet out from under all the other freedoms bestowed upon us by God and gives man control dictating who or what we can worship or not worship, as well as how we can worship and where we can worship.
With Gay Marriage being approved by the Supreme Court, this act has in fact made biblical Christianity against the law.
Christian Churches no longer have the freedom to exercise their religion the way they believe. It is now going to be dictated by the state how they will practice their religion.
Don’t wish to marry a gay in your church? Too bad, state says you have to or your doors will be shut, fines levied, the pastor and deacons will probably go to jail under anti-discrimination and hate laws.
Pastors now cannot preach against the errors of gay marriage based on God’s Word. They will face anti-discrimination suits, hate laws, probably be sued, forced to take tolerance training, even jailed.
Do you see right there the freedom to exercise one’s religion has been infringed upon.
IF your church is a 501c3 church and you stand on God’s Word, today your church can be shut down if you choose not to marry a gay couple in your church and you will be forced to perform the ceremony. Don’t… your church will be closed down and you put in jail.
It is widely believed that this decision will soon affect the tax status of Christian colleges who forbid same-sex relationships.
In 1983, the Supreme Court ruled that the IRS could take away the tax-exempt status of Bob Jones University because they banned interracial relationships.
The University decided they would rather pay back taxes than change their policy.

That is just one example; there are many more coming down the pipe
Hitler’s “German Christians”
On June 28, 1933, with Hitler’s authorization, Ludwig Müller, a fervent Nazi, took over chairmanship of the council of the Federation of the 27 regional Protestant churches.
A new constitution established a single “Protestant Reich Church.” On September 27, 1933, Müller was elected national bishop by a synod dominated by “German Christians.”
Restrictions were immediately placed on the clergy.
They had to be “politically reliable” and accept the superiority of the Aryan race.
Pressure was exerted to expel Jewish Christians from ministry.
The Nazi “Führer Principle” was to be adopted by the churches, which was a claim that Hitler was “lord” over the German church and that its Christ and Christianity were uniquely Aryan.
That very thing has now happened in America but instead of the Nazi agenda being pushed, we now have Gays pushing their agenda. Which if you look at the foundations of both, they are identical in nature.
“Bow to our ways and accept, or pay the price.”
That price, as we well know with Hitler was the gas chamber.
Hitler killed over 6 million Jews and about 4.5 million Christians. Many pastors, deacons and petitioners were rounded up and taken to the concentration camps.
What people fail to realize is that where religious freedom is denied, human development and its flourishing is impaired.
Religious freedom benefits everyone – it creates conditions for peace, a positive society that does not prey on their people. It creates development and the growth of other God given human rights.
A lack of religious freedom creates socio-economic discrimination.
We are clearly already seeing that take place today. Just look at the baker, who lost his business, was fined thousands of dollars, and forced to go take tolerant re-education classes.
Look at the photographer who was taken to court and lost their business.
Look at many other businesses that have fallen prey and targeted by radical gays pushing their agenda.
Again, these are the very same tactics that radical Nazi’s used and look at what they accomplished.
Do you think that this sort of targeting will now stop?
Heaven sakes no!
If anything we are now going to see a landslide of court cases specifically targeting Bible believing Christian churches, schools, and businesses.
Because of this law, if you speak out at work exercising your freedom of speech and religion, you will be fired. Odds are if you have a gay co-worker who hears you, you will be taken personally to court and you can lose everything.
All because you are now an enemy of the state and you are not allowed your ideas to be spoken publically or your religious ideals to be exercised or expressed.
Our freedom of religion is now taken away, that is if you are a bible believing Christian.
Your freedom of speech is gone.
The freedom to worship is now gone.
The freedom to express how you worship and wish to worship is now gone.
If you are a Christian business you are now forced to pay benefits to gay married couples.
You cannot voice your opposition or you will be taken to court and sued and most likely your business will be lost.
Churches that refuse to marry gay couples will be closed down, thus a loss of freedom to assemble.
Pastors who refuse to marry gay couples will be fined and jailed. There go those freedoms for that pastor.
By attacking Christianity, the Supreme Court has in essence nullified the first amendment when it come to the freedoms of bible believing Christians.
Support This? Your Rights Are Gone Also
NOW… for all those out there reading this in support of gay marriage, if the state can take away the rights and freedoms of bible believing Christians, they can NOW take your rights away too.
That is how tyranny works. It is called divide and conquer.
So all those fools who think that the people have won freedom, they are totally deluded and do not realize that their own freedoms will be next on the altar of stateism.
What has happened is that the hedonistic genie has been let out of the bottle.
You like this new law, well how much do you love your children and grandchildren?
Guess who is now in line to seek equal rights?
Pedophiles Call for Same Rights as Homosexuals
Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.
Critics of the homosexual lifestyle have long claimed that once it became acceptable to identify homosexuality as simply an “alternative lifestyle” or sexual orientation, logically nothing would be off limits. “Gay” advocates have taken offense at such a position insisting this would never happen. However, psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined several years ago.
In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. A group of psychiatrists with B4U-Act recently held a symposium proposing a new definition of pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders of the APA.
B4U-Act calls pedophiles “minor-attracted people.” The organization’s website states its purpose is to, “help mental health professionals learn more about attraction to minors and to consider the effects of stereotyping, stigma and fear.”

Imagine some sicko man or woman who preys upon young children and wants make sexual objects out of them.
These people are now pushing for equality and now have precedence.
So if you have a 10 year old child and they wish to marry this perv, guess what, if they win, which odds are they eventually will, there is nothing that you as a parent or grandparent can do about it.
You lose your child to a pervert who likes to have sex with little children and the law is on their side, not yours.
What about marrying a horse, dog or some other animal? Yep, they will be next in line too.
What about marrying ones sibling? Yep, they are in line as well. In fact with that taking place, there goes the gene pool and we will see many biological issues come from that one.
So this is the genie that has been let out of the bottle and now there is nothing that we as a people can do about it.
In the end do you know who is ultimately responsible for all this?
Bible believing Christians who did nothing when the time was needed to stand.
Think 2 Chronicles 7:14 helps?
Forget it, we are past the point of no return. We have made our bed and now we need to lie in it.
Think God is going to come down and recue everyone and change things?
No, what many fail to realize is that this is a judgment against us because we did not do the right thing when we had the chance. We allowed the enemy the high ground and the battle was lost a long time ago.
Sad thing is that these lack luster Christians are now finally waking up to that fact and think they can do something about it
The outcome of all this is that the real church is now going to have to go underground. It is that or suffer the consequences of hate crimes and anti-discrimination cases.
Which if you are taken down that road, the odds are already stacked up against you and you will lose.
Right now that may mean fines, loss of property, loss of a job or business, loss of a church and a pastor.
In the future, possibly in a few years, it will mean total loss of everything and you will be collected up and taken to extermination camps, just like the 11 million Jews and Christians who died under tyranny and loss of religious freedoms in their country by radical, hateful, non-tolerant Nazis.
Welcome to God’s judgment upon our nation and I believe that this is just the beginning.
We can learn from history and bail out like the Jews and Christians did prior to WWII Germany or we can hang around and see what happens.
Even MTV several years ago woke up to this fact. Take the time to watch these mind blowing commercials that MTV Produced.
In your face? Well here it is…

Think it will not come to that?
The holocaust happened to people like us.
It is in the beginning stages right now as you read this.
