After urging Christian photographers to add the line “worthy of death” to photos they take of same-sex weddings, Dr. “Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt emailed members of his Pray In Jesus Name Project today warning that Christians may face unemployment and starvation if the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) passes.
Klingenschmitt, who has previously called ENDA a demonically–inspired bill, said that a New Mexico case where a photography business violated a non-discrimination law is proof that ENDA will compel Christian businessmen “to disobey God.”
“The Government is now ordering you: Forsake God or starve to death,” Klingenschmitt writes. “I pray that I would choose bankruptcy, starvation, even death, before disobedience to God.”
He lamented that the Supreme Court’s “decision to homosexual marriage” has made conservative members of Congress feel “discouraged” in the face of Democrats who are “pushing radical change faster than we can oppose it.”
Christians MUST participate in Gay “Weddings” rules State Supreme Court
Two Christian photographers have no religious rights and must participate in homosexual “wedding” ceremonies or face big fines, penalties, and bankruptcy, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled.
The unanimous verdict was written by one justice who wrote the photographers were “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives,” reports Fox News.
Compelled to disobey God? By whom? Who has more authority than God?
If ENDA becomes law, Christians will be bankrupted in all 50 states, ordered to choose between obedience to God (refusing to participate in sin) and remaining in business. The First Amendment guarantees our freedom from such burden. The Government is now ordering you: Forsake God or starve to death. I pray that I would choose bankruptcy, starvation, even death, before disobedience to God.
Friends, I cannot believe Republicans are allowing this. Our good conservative friends in Congress are so discouraged on Capitol Hill, especially after the bad Supreme Court decision to homosexualize ‘marriage,’ and Democrats are pushing radical change faster than we can oppose it.
