The timing couldn’t have been any better. Once the American Civil Liberties Union learned earlier this week that the Supreme Court was going to rule in favor of nationwide gay marriage, they knew it was time to abandon an old friend. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) has been one of their most powerful weapons in fighting conservative ideologies for over two decades, but now their mission will be to shoot it down in order to attack anyone who uses it to defend Christian rights.
They are doing it in the name of discrimination. They are doing it to fight bigotry. They are doing it to fight hypocrisy. That’s the story line. The reality is that they are going to fight the RFRA tooth and nail so that they can discriminate against Christians, call them bigots, and fuel the most hypocritical agenda the legal world has seen in decades. The ACLU has officially become the most dangerous organization in America to those who believe in a Biblical worldview.
Here is an excerpt from their letter in the Washington Post:
The ACLU supported the RFRA’s passage at the time because it didn’t believe the Constitution, as newly interpreted by the Supreme Court, would protect people such as Iknoor Singh, whose religious expression does not harm anyone else. But we can no longer support the law in its current form. For more than 15 years, we have been concerned about how the RFRA could be used to discriminate against others. As the events of the past couple of years amply illustrate, our fears were well-founded. While the RFRA may serve as a shield to protect Singh, it is now often used as a sword to discriminate against women, gay and transgender people and others. Efforts of this nature will likely only increase should the Supreme Court rule — as is expected — that same-sex couples have the freedom to marry.
It doesn’t matter what the left says. It doesn’t matter what the Supreme Court Justices wrote in their rulings. This is the beginning of an all out attack against Christianity in America. If you don’t believe it, just wait and see.
