Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

The Supreme Court Gives Ammunition for the Government to Attack Christianity and the Freedom of Religion

When the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act pandora's box was opened.  It is only a matter of time before those who have strong beliefs in the Bible and the moral law of God which forbids homosexuality will be attacked and marginalized by an increasingly wicked government that is intent on outlawing the freedom of religion and freedom of speech.

Not only is science always false, but the idea that the homosexual orientation is somehow a scientifically proven disposition is also completely false.  Inductive proofs for universal conclusions are built on logical fallacies.

Christians can look for further attacks by the government and their fellow citizens.  This is no longer a free country.  The government is openly trying to make it a crime disagree with the politically correct view that homosexuality is moral while Christianity is immoral.

Justice Antonin Scalia made this point clearly in his dissenting opinion:

Justice Antonin Scalia accused his colleagues of a "jaw-dropping" overreach. And he hinted in a long dissenting opinion that the court's decision invalidating DOMA could have broader implications: "By formally declaring anyone opposed to same-sex marriage an enemy of human decency, the majority arms well every challenger to a state law restricting marriage to its traditional definition," he wrote.  (Supreme Court Strikes Down Defense of Marriage Act).
It will soon become a "hate" crime to preach against homosexuality in pulpits all across America.  This is just the beginning.  President Obama's contention that "all men are created equal" was certainly never intended to extend to homosexuals.  And the biblical allusion is antithetical to everything the Holy Scriptures stand for.  God in the beginning creation intended for marriage to be between one man and one woman.  There were no homosexuals in the original creation and any such thing visible today is not part of creation but of the fall of man into wickedness and rebellion against God.  

It didn't take a genius to figure out that Obama would attack Christianity.  But no one could foresee the boldness with which Obama and his evil cronies would act against Evangelical and biblical Christianity.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20 NKJ)

To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. (Isaiah 8:20 NKJ)

This is already happening in France. A young man was recently arrested for wearing a Tshirt supporting natural marriage: http://voice1nthecrowd.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/french-student-held-in-cell-for-6-days.html

The propaganda and barrage of hate leveled at conservative Christianity on late night television here in the US is a good indication of what the future holds. Bill Maher is just one example. Jimmy Kimmel, a homosexual, is another.
