The forgotten First Amendment

Or, Excuse me, Sir, but you have just stepped on my Civil Liberties! 

The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights says:  ‘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.’

“As a conservative Christian, I firmly believe the homosexual lifestyle is morally wrong, and my blog posting sought to emphasize there are economic and public policy implications to widespread and open acceptance of this lifestyle,” said Bert Chapman, a Purdue University professor, who blogs as the “conservative librarian” at www.townhall.com.

I am a Conservative Christian in doctrine and in a standard of living ordained by God, not the world. Being a Conservative Christian means understanding and living by every word written in the Bible, not just selected bits and pieces of it. That being said, some would say that the Levitical Law was under Grace after Christ’s death on the Cross. When it comes to the homosexual lifestyle, nothing can be further from the truth, read Romans 1:16-32*(see ref).

From IndyStar:  A Purdue University professor has landed in hot water with students protesting his personal blog — a conservative Web page on which he posted an ‘economic case against homosexuality.’ Some have called for Bert Chapman to resign or be fired for his Oct. 27 posting, which laid out an argument that the cost for AIDS research and treatment should factor into the national debate over the acceptance of gays and lesbians.

Actually, Chapman is correct – keep in mind the proposed Freedom of Choice Act; it spoke of the downturn the economy will take if all of the children that should have been aborted would be born because it was ASSUMED that they and their mothers would be on the government dime. So why is there a difference of importance between gays and the unborn? Because the unborn cannot speak for themselves. I assure you that these precious preborn souls would choose Life.

Besides what the homosexual lifestyle infers, as taxpayers we already pay for HIV and AIDS research and treatment, we already pay for abortions and contraception; but the proposed healthcare bill will include gender reassignment and fulfilling homosexual ‘families’ – artificial insemination,  IVF, infertility counseling, adoption and foster parenting.

Our freedom of speech is limited to the opinion of those that are within earshot and a computer.

It’s time to GET OFF THE COUCH and stand up for LIFE and LIBERTY.

*ref:  Romans 1:26-32,  ‘v26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  v27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.  v28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  v29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,  v30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  v31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  v32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
