There’s only one thing that can stop the left’s assault on Christians and those that hold the belief that marriage is between a man and a woman – electoral pain and suffering.
We have to beat them on Election Day, and we have to beat them badly.
Since even before the Obergefell decision – mandating gay marriage in all 50 states – radicals on the left have been moving to brand those with Judeo-Christian views on sexuality and marriage as hateful bigots – the moral equivalent of racists. Now, they are working to pass laws and enforce regulations that force religious schools, churches, charities, and universities to choose between their existence and their faith.
And why should they stop? It’s not like they have faced a unified opposition. Social conservatives have been divided – focusing on several solutions like a federal marriage amendment, overturning Obergefell, and even outright ignoring Obergefell if we elect a Republican president in 2016. But these measures all take time. There has been nothing in the short-term to stop the far Left’s anti-Christian onslaught. Nothing – that is – until now.
