Charisma magazine senior editor Jennifer LeClaire wrote last week that she went into “spiritual shock” following the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality, telling readers that she was “mourning because true freedom and true equality have been replaced by a counterfeit crusade that truly sets no one free.”
“I almost felt like someone had died,” she wrote. “Someone didn’t, but something did. True liberty and justice for all.”
This decision, she said, was the culmination of “an anti-Christ agenda” that “will open the floodgates to a tsunami of perversion in the land.”
When I learned the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage I went into what you might call spiritual shock. I almost felt like someone had died. Someone didn’t, but something did. True liberty and justice for all. I am grieving right now over the false freedom that was birthed out of a false equality movement. I am mourning because true freedom and true equality have been replaced by a counterfeit crusade that truly sets no one free. I am weeping because America has fallen and many in the church are being caught up in the Great Falling Away.
A line in the sand was long ago drawn. Our tyrannical government crossed that line on June 26, 2015. When five Supreme Court justices trampled state rights they knew all too well Christian rights would be trampled along with them. Call it a betrayal of our Constitution. Call it an anti-Christ agenda. Call it an assault on religious freedom. It’s all that and more.
See, crossing this line in the name of equality was a spiritual assault on every believer who calls on the name of Jesus. This isn’t about allowing gays to get married. No, not really. While I stand against gay marriage, it’s not the letter of the law that concerns me most. It the spirit behind the law that truly grieves me. This ruling will open the floodgates to a tsunami of perversion in the land.
Pedophiles now want the same rights as same-sex couples. But that’s the topic of another column.
I have to keep believing even in the midst of a raging spiritual war. I believe America as we know it died last Friday but I believe America can be born again. Like Winston Churchill said during World War II when the situation looked dire, “Never, never, never, never give up.”
