The outrageous California Catholic-charities decision yesterday ought to suggest that despite what so-called “gay marriage” advocates say about leaving church marriage alone, the left will take their vision of “human rights” directly into trampling over the rights of worship and the separation of church and state. The churches will be dictated to support the social-liberal agenda. In the more “progressive” countries, free speech has been curtailed, so religious people may not declare homosexuality as sinful in polite society.
This is a primary reason why the President’s faith-based initiative didn’t go anywhere in Congress. Joe Lieberman and others demanded that faith-based charities that took government grants could not be allowed to “discriminate” against hiring homosexuals or others who failed to agree with their religious beliefs.
