Joining other Religious Right leaders, Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families is jumping to the defense of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, who was suspended by A&E after making homophobic and racist remarks. Bauer seems to think that Robertson was simply expressing Christian values in his interview where he attacked gay people and waxed nostalgia for Jim Crow. According to Bauer, Robertson is a victim of “the radical left’s jihad against America’s cultural norms and our Judeo-Christian values.”
Naturally, it is all President Obama’s fault: “The culture war has been going on for decades. But the election of Barack Obama has unleashed the left, making it more aggressive than ever,” said Bauer.
While Phil Robertson has been the focus of this furor, the real attention should be directed to the intolerant homosexual rights movement and its totalitarian left-wing allies in Big Media.
The same cultural forces trying to make sure that no nativity scene is displayed in a public square;
The people who tried to destroy the president of Chick-fil-A for the “crime” of supporting traditional marriage;
The bureaucrats in the Obama Administration who are trying to force Catholic and evangelical business owners to subsidize abortion and pay for other medical services and products that violate their religious values;
The radicals who demand that a small, Christian-owned bakery be forced to cater a same-sex “wedding;”
The same people who are purging our history books and replacing the text with anti-American history — it is all part of the radical left’s jihad against America’s cultural norms and our Judeo-Christian values.
The culture war has been going on for decades. But the election of Barack Obama has unleashed the left, making it more aggressive than ever.
Sadly, on our side, the resistance is often too weak. Too many churches are AWOL, too many politicians are cowering in fear, too many people are afraid to speak up.
I believe America, this great experiment in ordered liberty under God, will survive or fall based on how we handle these issues, not whether billionaires pay higher taxes or if the chained consumer price index is adjusted.
