Bullied in America?

text size A A A

The irony exceeds description: Those in the LGBT movement claim to be bullied, yet they themselves bully Christians in the United States --especially Christian women and children. Why? Christian rights have become second-rate to other social groups (i.e. LGBT).

Consider this: A true Christian does not hate others. A true Christian loves others and desires all to know Jesus, yet realizes that it is up to every individual to make a personal decision for Christ. No one can force conversion. So what is there to fear?

Well, Leftists fear losing their ability to promote their sexual and financial agendas. There exists a major market for sinful practices, and there exists a major campaign to promote such practices. And it targets Christians.

Speaking of targeting Christians, Target stores have done just that: They have elected to remove a safe haven (a women's restroom) and instead create gender neutral bathrooms that allow men to follow women into restrooms without being asked questions. This endangers women and innocent children. (Take action now and sign the AFA petition: https://www.afa.net/action-alerts/sign-the-boycott-target-pledge/.)

Further, a recent episode of "Saturday Night Live" featured a segment mocking the new movie God's Not Dead 2. The skit spewed sarcasm and ridicule directed towards God and Christians. It included content too awful and offensive to share here. The skit made fun of how Christians are being punished for following their faith and not agreeing with homosexuality.

Pastor Carl Gallups responded by saying, "This is exactly what Christians have been saying was going to happen, and it is exactly why many states are now considering and/or have passed laws to remedy such vicious targeting and bullying by gay activists. I found the 'SNL' clip to be very telling indeed. It depicts two gays walking into a Christian cake baker's shop and ordering her to bake their 'wedding cake.' It is obvious that they have targeted her because of her faith - and for the sole purpose of introducing a lawsuit against her. And that's actually what's happening."

Sadly, the SNL skit is just one of example of the bullying and ridicule directed towards Christianity within our own country. In response, Pat Boone and several leaders are pointing that a climate of fear is settling over America. We salute Pat Boone for having the courage to speak out. He said, "Even ministers in the church are afraid to preach truth out of the Bible because it may be labeled hate speech." We are thankful for Pat Boone. (We're still honored that Mr. Boone endorsed our book Unite the USA: Discover the ABCs of Patriotism. It's full of tips on how to help our country.)

Christianity and the cross are despised by liberal groups who strategically campaign to silence us. It's tragic that this is happening within the Land of the Free. However, we're reminded of what Jesus said in John 15:18.

"'If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.'"

But also remember what He said in John 16:33.

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."

We have hope because we have the Lord. Don't stop sharing about Him. Keep praying for our country. Keep working to protect our liberties. Please read this important edition of Unite the USA and share it with your friends: http://www.unitetheusa.org/id147.html. Thank you for your prayers and faithfulness.
