~~~There is hypocrisy in the way Christians are being attacked by participating in the public discussion concerning the topic of same-sex marriages.~~~

President Bush’s push for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriages is creating a firestorm among his opponents. Sooner or later it was bound to stir the liberal knee-jerk response that anything “Christian” violates the wall between Church and State. It would be unprofitable to divert attention by recounting the connections between Christianity and the historical documents that serve as a foundation for America’s existence. Any third grade student recognizes the Christian influence of our founding fathers and their written word. Those opposed to Christian ideals are not going to capitulate simply because they are out of touch with the thoughts and morals of men who existed over two hundred years ago. In fact, they relish that fact.

 

The hypocrisy of those who shout “Church and State” like some rallying cry to beat back the barbarians who are storming the gates of democracy is wearing thin these days. There are many laws in America that violate the sense of righteousness in which Christians believe. Abortion has been unleashed upon our society by courtroom decisions that seem unfair to Christians, yet it is the law of the land. There is nothing one can do to stop it. Yet, it is also lawful for me to lobby against it if I so choose, just as others lobby for it. It is the American way. Do not condemn Christians for having points of view. If the Christian point of view carries the day, others still have the right to lobby against it. When liberals say the "church should leave the state alone," certainly they do not mean that anyone who attends church has no right to comment in the public square or vote in an election. Frankly, I know of no church organization that has taken up arms to force the state to do anything. Churchgoers are simply following the rules of democracy--voicing their opinions--which is the right of all Americans: Christian and non-Christian.

 

President Bush is not violating any law. In fact, a few mayors and judges have taken it upon themselves to establish the gay agenda by twisting the intent of the constitution. Crying “Church and State” is simply a red herring designed to create a chilling effect in the effort to shut down the opposition to the gay agenda. The president is following the means available in the constitution to address the problem of maverick mayors and judges who are taking the law into their own hands. Bush is simply employing the rules of engagement to deal with such things: the constitutional rules of engagement. If a super majority of congress and Americans disagree with the out of control politicians and officials who are caving to the gay agenda, a constitutional amendment is perfectly in order.

Just as we thought "holy matrimony" was going down the drain -- NOW THIS! Good article!

Your statements are true. I wonder though how many Christians have read the constitution. Read about seperation of chruch and state because it really supports us not the state.
The 4th protects rights.
There is not constitutional right to an abortion.
I am not speaking from a soap box until the last few years I did not know how these very important issues were written. The mind or my mind at least is a awful thing to waste :)
well done

The democrats will do anything for a vote. Who put all these liberal judges in power. You are so right if you said the "D" word. Eddie you speak the truth and not with a forked tongue. Bravo my friend I hope more will speak up about this atrocity and vote for a party that is for the good of the country.

I know the subject is Gay Marriages. But no doubt the logical follow on in this arena is to include the Transgender community.
Can I draw your attention to the fact that the default state of ALL human beings is "female". So might I suggest that Eve was made first.
Also let us not forget that "Mother nature" is not an exact science and things can and do go wrong in the womb at conception.
As a "Transfemale Person" living in the UK, where for the last 33years Transsexual people have effectively been "Non People" through no fault of their own I would have thought the "Church" would have remembered the phrase " We are ALL God's children".

I think it is sad how our country is going nowadays. I think President Bush is RIGHT to ban such things like gay marriages; God made Adam and EVE, NOT Adam and STEVE! It's a SIN, and it should be stopped! NOW!
