HOW FAR WILL CHRISTIANS BE PUSHED?

As of last week, it can no longer be disputed that the governments of the United States and Canada are hostile to the religious liberties of Christians. And the time, which was a long time coming, has come for Christians to ask themselves:
Have you finally had enough?
In the USA, which was founded on religious freedom—by Christians!—the Obama Gang is trying to force churches to fund abortions: the Catholic Church in particular, but all churches are affected. And last week an appeals court in New Mexico ruled that a mom-and-pop photography business, owned and operated by Christians, committed a crime by refusing to photograph a lesbian pseudo-wedding. The case will be appealed to the state supreme court, but as of this writing, the Christian photographers have been ordered to pay a fine of $6,600 and change. For a business this small, such a fine can lead to ruin. The message is clear—do what the lesbians want, or lose your livelihood. In the eyes of the state, the lesbians’ feelings are of more value than the religious liberties of Christians.
In Canada last week, the Ontario Legislature passed a law forcing Catholic schools to have “gay-straight alliances”—homosexual clubs—on their premises. As usual, this act of statist tyranny was cloaked in an “anti-bullying” crusade. But it is the Catholic Church in Ontario that is being bulled; and the bishops, so far, are taking it lying down.
