Will Talking About Biblical Marriage Soon Be Classified as Hate Speech?

A growing number of Christians, and especially religious liberty advocates, are voicing serious concern that publicly expressing the biblical belief that marriage is defined as being between one man and one woman will be classified as "hate speech."

Ryan T. Anderson, who is the William E. Simon Fellow in Religion and a Free Society at the Heritage Foundation, believes that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's comments in a recent TV interview about how the push to redefine marriage may threaten religious freedom is only the tip of the iceberg.

"Some on the left are criticizing Senator Ted Cruz's recent comments about how the drive to redefine marriage may threaten religious freedom - but a closer inspection of the issue reveals his worries were accurate, prescient, and maybe even too cautious," writes Anderson in his column published on Tuesday. ...

A modern wedding is a legal ceremony by a "minister" who is sanctioned by the state in a building given tax exemption by the state by their grace pleaded for by a group of "believers" who desire the states approval.

No government has a right to curtail free speech regarding biblical truth. Whether or not our government labels speech about biblical marriage "hate speech" should have no effect whatsoever on what Christians do. After all, we are called to martyrdom-- for the Greek word for witness is 'martyrion' from which we get the word 'martyr.' Anyone who suffers loss of property, employment, liberty, or life itself in bearing witness to God's truth is a martyr; and that is the universal calling of Christ's church-- to bear witness to the truth, even at the cost of personal suffering. We are called to remind human governments they are not God, that there are limits to their authority; and we are to show ourselves willing to suffer temporal penalties for disobeying unjust laws that would compel us to violate God's law. So there can be no compromise on this issue-- the church can never muzzle itself and refuse to speak out publicly against sin and moral depravity because the government orders us to be silent. Although we are to be always respectful to those in charge, our motto must be, "Christ is Lord-- not Caesar." To that we must be witness-- by word and by deed.

"over 350 separate state anti-discrimination provisions would likely be triggered by recognition of same-sex marriage."

The abomination of marriage by the evil Liberals will and indeed is having an effect upon society. The society we live in, in the western nations, is not Christian and is becoming less and less our society. Even many churches are preferring the abomination to the Scriptures.
"Hate speech" is already here. Discrimination against church, Christian, Bible, God and Christ is already in full progress. This is the spiritual war we read of in Scripture.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
