As the liberal revolution grows in power

Expect those who would resist to start eating each other.  Case in point.  A CNN article written to remind us that we are fools if we think liberalism will stop at the doors of church, synagogue, temple or mosque.  A Church of Christ congregation asks a woman to leave because the woman defies church teaching by openly advocating The Issue on behalf of her lesbian daughter.  Now would I have handled it that way?  Assuming the story is even correct?  Probably not.  But I sympathize with their plight.  They are a skirmish in the future battle to finally eradicate the right to not be liberal from America, if not the world.

Mark dutifully jumps on CNN's side (it isn't FOX after all), and declares his contempt and horror at these shameful disgraces to the Christian name, explaining it's their example that validates the hatred for Christians that Jesus spoke of all those years ago.  Several jump on the thread to express their own contempt and hatred for such bigoted scum who blaspheme The Issue.  Some try to resist, most maybe, but the resistance is half-hearted.  Those spewing Jack Chick style loathing upon the congregation in question have absolute morality on their side, while those trying to balance the issue and look at all sides are steamrolled.

Expect more of the same. There are three ways one can deal with the rise perhaps the greatest threat to Orthodox Christianity since Arianism: we can resist, we can change our faith and accept it, or we can do this - throw each other to the wolves in the hope that we'll be the ones the New Order thinks is swell and awesome enough to leave alone.

"And listen, Gandalf, my old friend and helper!" he said, coming near and speaking new in a softer voice.  "I said we, for we it may be, if you will join with me.  A new Power is rising.  Against it the old allies and policies will not avail us at all.  There is no hope left in elves or dying Numenor.  This then is the one choice before you, before us.  We may join with that Power.  It would be wise, Gandalf.  There is hope that way.  Its victory is at hand, and there will be rich reward for those that aided it."
