I sometimes wince at the way Matt Walsh expresses himself. I would not always make arguments exactly the way he makes them. And he tends to write very long posts – but maybe that’s necessary to persuade some readers. In spite of these things, I have found him to be a reliable source of common sense on issues in the news. I think he has a pretty big following, but I wish even more people paid attention to him.
I feel bad for Bruce Jenner. He is getting so much bad advice. I hope he’ll hear about Matt and listen to him. Just because a person perceives himself a certain way, doesn’t necessarily mean that perception is accurate. Just think of the entertainer Karen Carpenter who, essentially, starved herself to death in 1983 because she perceived herself to be an overweight person.
It’s sad that Bruce Jenner has such a distorted view of himself; it’s far sadder that so many people are reinforcing that distorted perception. May God bless Matt Walsh who is willing to break rank with the growing insanity.
Whether Americans are for or against “same-sex marriage” they ought to be united in their rejection of the Supreme Court’s usurpation of democratic process.
Anyone with the slightest familiarity with the U. S. Constitution knows that it does not speak to the issue of SS”M.” Why then doesn’t the court simply admit “This is out of our jurisdiction”?
Roe v. Wade is the most notable precedent for the judiciary depriving the citizenry of democratic due process. If we’d stand for judicial tyranny then, it’s no surprise we’d stand for it now.
Again, indignation ought to the common reaction of both proponents and opponents of SS”M,” for the court is clearly taking to itself a power over the other branches of government, and over the citizenry itself, that the founders never gave it.
In this commentary on questions and comments made by some of the Supreme Court justices in Tuesday oral arguments on SS”M” Ben Shapiro demonstrates how superficial is the thinking of these supposedly powerful intellects.
Even without Shapiro’s comments, you will be shocked at how prejudicial and myopic some of our most honored jurists actually are.
On top of all this, who in their right mind thinks that the U.S. Constitution has a position on “same-sex marriage”…or even marriage itself, for that matter?
(SCOTUS = Supreme Court of the United States)
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, more commonly known as the same-sex marriage case.
The corruption of marriage that is called “same-sex marriage” is not an isolated political trend. It is part of a broader attempt to rid the landscape of Christ. Sinners wish Him to go away, but the redeemed beg Him to stay. The good news is that He hears the prayers of His people.
Proponents of same-sex “marriage” say they want “marriage equality.” This is Orwellian language designed to disguise what is taking place and to put any opponent on the defensive (as in “Only a bigot would be against equality”).
The disguise is this: if the Supreme Court gives same-sex “marriage” the same legal status as marriage, then we will have a definition of marriage going forward that is unequal to the definition of marriage that has been in place for all of time up until now.
Aside from the absurdity of a group of nine adults making this decision and thereby usurping the decision-making authority of a democracy of almost 200 million adults perfectly capable of voting themselves on the issue, there is the greater absurdity of making marriage in the future unequal to what it has been for all time in the past – and calling this a move to “marriage equality.”
This is just one more example of the Orwellian language that infecting public discussion of important issues.
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5:20
If you read this article, you’ll find yourself wondering if it can really be happening. It is happening; it has happened. America has ceased to be the land of the free, but at least is it still the home of the brave. May God bless the Kleins for their courage.
Where is the fourth estate? Aren’t they supposed to cry “Foul” when the powerful are crushing the powerless?
I don’t know the business model for bakers, but I doubt that it produces the sort of profits that would allow for $135,000 to be sitting around waiting for a bill like this. If government can get away with this sort of thing today, what is going to happen tomorrow?
“The owners of an Oregon bakery have learned Friday there is a severe price to pay for following the beliefs of their Christian faith.”
