Lawrence v. Texas

Twin Sisters of Hell Now Supreme
According to America’s Highest Court

On June 26, the Supreme Court of the United States of America released its 6-3 ruling, striking down Texas’ statute prohibiting homosexual sex as a deviant and destructive behavior. Many astute legal minds believe the Supreme Court of America has opened the door to legalizing same sex marriages, as well as removing restrictions from an assortment of what has long been considered aberrant sexual behavior -- such as polygamy, bestiality and pedophilia, to name a few.

America’s Highest Court’s assault on the culture is now complete, and the twin sisters of slaughtering the innocent and sodomy are now legal and protected rights in the land.

Just as in 1973, when every state in the union was rejecting abortion in referendum after referendum, a majority of the Court overruled, making abortion the law of the land, the High Court has again taken the role of determining what should be considered to be right and wrong. Despite the feelings of the ignorant masses, which polling data reveals continues to reject homosexual behavior by overwhelming margins, the Supremes have decided the issue for them, legislating from the bench, with no recourse for the great majority of the people who believe that God’s word proclaims and history verifies that homosexual behavior is sinful, destructive and dangerous for the culture.

Antonia Scalia, who is being pilloried from the left for his candid dissent, with some even calling for his removal from the bench, has accurately and courageously, even prophetically, laid this abominable decision at the feet of the 6 Justices who have chosen a side in the culture war, and forcibly imposed their will on the masses of religious people in this country who believe God’s Word has spoken on this issue.

I believe that if the Church of Jesus Christ does not unite and stand with this courageous Judge and defend him, and marshal their people to stop an out-of-control Federal Judiciary, the God who granted us our freedoms and who has blessed this country for so long, will soon move in powerful judgment upon the land.

Judge Scalia writes in his dissenting opinion:

Today’s opinion is the product of a Court, which is the product of a law-profession culture, that has largely signed on to the so called homosexual agenda, by which I mean the agenda promoted by some homosexual activists directed at eliminating the moral opprobrium that has traditionally attached to the homosexual conduct. I noted in an earlier opinion the fact that the American Association of Law Schools (to which any reputable school must seek to belong) excludes from membership any school that refuses to ban from its job-interview facilities a law firm (no matter how small) that does not wish to hire as a prospective partner a person who openly engages in homosexual conduct. See Romer, supra, at 653.

One of the most revealing statements in today’s opinion is the Court’s grim warning that the criminalization of homosexual conduct is “an invitation to subject homosexual persons to discrimination both in the public and in the private spheres.” Ante, at 14. It is clear from this that the Court has taken sides in the culture war, departing from its role of assuring, as a neutral observer, that the democratic rules of engagement are observed. Many Americans do not want persons who openly engage in homosexual conduct as partners in their business, as scout masters for their children, as teachers in their children’s schools or as boarders in their home. They view this as protecting themselves and their families from a lifestyle that they believe to be immoral and destructive. The Court views it as “discrimination” which it is the function of our judgments to deter. So imbued is the Court with the law profession’s anti-anti-homosexual culture, that it is seemingly unaware that the attitudes of that culture are not obviously “mainstream”; that in most states what the Court calls "discrimination” against those who engage in homosexual acts is perfectly legal…..

Thirty years ago, abortion became the law of the land, to the dismay of the majority of Christians who faithfully attend their churches. No one could have predicted that we would destroy 40 million babies and have difficulty deciding that killing full term babies through the procedure now referred to as partial birth abortion, was wrong, but here we are.

Now we have removed any prohibition of homosexual behavior. What’s next, bestiality? In his dissent, Justice Scalia raises that very possibility, based on this ruling. If the pastors of this land do not stand up on this issue, I am convinced that God will move in swift and powerful judgment on our blessed land. God help us to stand!

Isaiah 3:8-9 makes God’s feelings on this matter abundantly clear: Their words and deeds are against the Lord, defying his glorious presence. The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

And to the society that tolerates this behavior, He states: Now I will tell you what I am going to do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge and it will be destroyed. (Isaiah 5:5).

Pastors and fellow Christians, we have a champion of our values on the Supreme Court. Are we willing to take the heat and stand with him? More importantly, are we willing to stand with and for our Lord and His word.

The Supreme Court is comprised of men and women, who like us, are flawed by sin. They got it wrong with the Dred Scott decision: They got it wrong with the Roe v Wade decision; and they got it wrong with this decision. With every arrogant action which confronts God’s revealed truth, comes God’s justice.

Vision America is looking for courageous Christians who will stand with us against such insidious assaults on our faith.
