Default The stench of moral decay

I'm sickened by what I knew was coming long ago. From what many now observe and believe themselves, Christian beliefs are becoming passe, politically incorrect, close minded, anti everything, insignificant, biased, and myth-like.

The numbers of those who embrace Christianity have dwindled. Christian churches across America have closed their doors.

Those of you who are not Christians, do understand that believers have a moral code and many of you yourselves also embrace somewhat conservative beliefs. You may be atheist or agnostic but you desire to raise your kids in a productive way where they obey the laws, have integrity, and character... all positive attributes that ensure a promising future.

What's wrong with removing prayer from schools? Same sex marriage across the nation? Removing the Ten Commandments? Stopping the Pledge of Allegiance("One nation under God")? Saying or printing Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas? And on and on...

What does it hurt if people want to choose how to live their lives and not have certain belief structures shoved down their throats. Well! The reverse is happening. Christians are being persecuted. Our nostrils are filled with the stench of moral decay and if we attempt to display the ways of Christ and His teachings, we get a door slammed in our face.

I read where a bakery shop owner was recently forced by the court system to pay a gay couple $175,000 because they refused to service their wedding.

Wow! Yeah... dill's soap box.

Those screaming for tolerance these days are the most intolerant when something goes against them.
We are in a heap of trouble. All it takes is one person to gripe and a whole community must suffer these days.

I'm sure the punt will follow soon.

So you heard about the bakery owners being fined $175,000, but did you also hear that they have had a gag order placed on them by a local judge. They have had 2 of their first amendment rights taken away because they did not want to participate in something that goes against their religious beliefs. On the other hand, a muslim can sue because they aren't allowed to wear their headscarf (my apologies for not knowing the correct term, not my thing) at work and force yet another company to bow down and change policy based on religion. Christianity is surely under attack by all facets of society. I'm not a church-goer but I have my faith (mind you, not religion, but faith based on Christianity) but I'm not so sure I agree with all of these new age mega-churches with 10-15 "campuses" all around a city. Maybe it's just a change that just doesn't seem right to me. I mean, until 10 years ago, did you ever see a window sticker promoting a church?

"What does it hurt if people want to choose how to live their lives and not have certain belief structures shoved down their throats. "

Been saying this my whole life, every time someone tries to shove GOD down my throat.

The problem is some worry to much about what other people do, mind you own business and take care of your family and those you care about.

And just to stir the pot some

1 million children die each year before they reach the age of 5
God either can't do anything about it or
refuses to do anything about it.

He does work in mysterious ways don't he...........

Your first statement is exactly right, believe, don't believe that is on you. I have always had an issue with anyone trying to force their beliefs on me. What the OP had mentioned was that this is happening, only in reverse and that people are being fined ridiculous amounts of money because of this. How is that fair? They didn't try to force their beliefs, they only chose to not do business with someone. Oddly enough, you can put up a sign that says No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service and deny service to someone. Or you can put up a sign that says Management reserves the right to refuse service, and this is legally binding, but because they stated that it went against their religious beliefs, they are chastised for it.
