I’ve lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth: That God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We’ve been assured in the sacred writings that unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. I firmly believe this, and I also believe that without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel.
– Benjamin Franklin
You probably know that American founding father Patrick Henry (1736-1799) said “Give me liberty or give me death!” But do you know the context of those words? That is, do you know what he said in the sentences leading up to that sentence?
An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us! …Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. …Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. …Is life so dear, or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
– Patrick Henry
An LGBTQ advocacy group has sent a letter to the commissioner of the Big 12 urging the conference to remove BYU from consideration for membership because it says the school has discriminatory policies.
LGBT groups accuse BYU of discrimination because BYU has a code of conduct which disallows sex outside of marriage. What do the LGBT groups want the Big 12 Conference to do about this? Discriminate against BYU by excluding them from conference membership.
When sexual revolutionaries say they are against discrimination, they exempt themselves. They deem it perfectly okay if they discriminate against others who don’t share their values, but don’t think others should be able to do the same thing. Their cry of “Discrimation!” is utterly hypocritical.
One of the biggest scams going on in American public life these days is “anti-discrimination” crusade which discriminates – and does so forcefully – against any and all who disagree with it.
