SOUTHERN BAPTIST LEADER DECLARES WAR ON LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

Crusader The president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky has declared war on "liberty and the pursuit of happiness." He seems to be OK with "Life." In fact, he's calling for an American crusade in defense of marriage that will go far beyond homosexuals.

"Americans bought into a lifestyle and world view of personal autonomy and individual self-fulfillment. If the isolated self is the most important unit of meaning, marriage is seen as an accessory at best, and as feminist Betty Friedan's "domestic captivity" at worst." he tells THE CHRISTIAN POST.

Still flush with victories in the war against gay marriage, this Southern Baptist leader reminds us that the literal word of the Bible goes far beyond the abomination of man on man sex.

With so many Christian victories on so many fronts and with the full support of the Woman_1 President and many members of Congress and the courts, this Southern Baptist leader no longer sees the need to pussyfoot around the literal word of God. It's not just about abominations like homosexuals, it's also about arrogant women, unwed mothers, people who live in sin and the fallen in general.

It's time, he implies, that we look behind the threat of homosexuality as we consider laws designed to defend marriage and Christian values. If we are truly to defend marriage, we must focus our attention on reversing feminism, criminalizing co-habitation and pre-marital sex, banning divorce and defeating the notion that marriage is about relationships when in fact it is about procreation and parenting.

In the immortal words of Katherine Harris, "If you?re not electing Christians then in essence you are going to legislate sin."

It's easy to poke fun at good old Kate, but let us not forget that is she far from alone in her crusade to return America to the pre-Constitution days of 17th Century Puritan New England.

:omg: What scares me as a 16-year-old high school senior is what is our country going to be like when I'm an adult if psudo-religous hate mongers like these actually get some of their anti-freedom agenda enacted? Will I have to move to Canada with my boyfriend?

This is the same logic that Fundamentalist Muslims use.

This isn't a Islamic or Christian problem. This is a fundamentalist problem.

Usually they are harmless but occassionally one of them will blow a fuse and go on a rape, murder and pillage rampage so they bear watching. They are safer to be around when they stay on their medication.

Sadly, the fight isn't over in Canada either. The current government is made up of a lot of religious zealots/bigots and they've vowed to revisit the laws allowing same sex marriage.

On the other hand, the vast majority of those polled indicate that they will be VERY displeased with them if they bring it up for another vote, and since they have a minority government, they could easily be defeated on this. For those who don't know, a minority government is one in which they have the greatest number of members of their party elected, but the other parties combined have a greater number, meaning the 'ruling' party is always on shaky ground and has to cater to the ideas of all the other parties, or at least enough of them to survive a vote.
