Defending Religious Liberty is How I Love Them

“Thomas Sowell also noted recently, ‘One of the most dangerous trends of our times is making the truth socially unacceptable, or even illegal, with ‘hate speech’ laws.’  He’s pretty much in synch with George Orwell, who said, ‘In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.‘”

It is never my intention to hurt people with the truth, and I do consider the manner in which I express it.

The act of peaceably defending religious liberty is a greater good than making feel loved the comrades of those who attacked religious liberty.  The defense is a universal act of love.

I’m hoping it sinks in after 3 times.

Chick-fil-A and Christian Solidarity

This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

Sometimes there is no need to counter every argument and show them to be the drivel that they are.  This happens when there exists a sort of trump card, one idea that simply is far more important than the others in play.  I will never tire of using prepartum infanticide, otherwise known as abortion, as an example: Nothing ever justifies the deliberate killing of innocent human life–not rape, not incest, not mental capacities, not illness, not genetic disorders.  The truth of the sacredness of human life is trump.

Also trump: Christian love, meaning acts of love not filial feelings, for one another.  If you supported Chick-fil-A to spite anyone, you screwed up.  But if you offered support out of interest for your spited fellow believer, then you were absolutely right.  It doesn’t matter who felt alienated or spited because the object of your action was admirable and your intention was admirable–more than admirable, they were objectively good!

To have acted otherwise would have been to fail to demonstrate Christian solidarity and love for one another.  Those who are blind, we pray for them.
