I have no objection to gay couples receiving equal protection under the law, on the contrary I'm in favor of it. But this suit wasn't about that. It was about giving gay couples the right to force people to bake wedding cakes for them at gunpoint. It was about forcing everyone in the country, under penalty of the law, to define a homosexual relationship as 'normal' regardless of the teachings of their church. Like all things that spring from the left, it was a (successful) attempt to destroy a cornerstone of western culture, and to bring it's founding institutions low.
I believe the steamroller of popular culture will continue to pour over the institutions that have defined western civilization - at least until a gay couple tries to get married in a mosque. At that point the gay lobby will run into the one thing they don't have the courage to cope with; a group of people so devout that they will use violence to defend their faith. They will kill and die for it.
While I am not a devotee of Islam and I don't agree with the violent tendencies of Muslim culture, I do see where they're coming from. The things I would kill and die for are not the same as theirs, but there are things that I feel that strongly about. But my most cherished values leave me standing alone as a man in the wilderness and not a part of a unified faith with a billion global followers. So even if I would 'kill and die' for something, it isn't any secret that I'd probably end up doing the latter rather than the former. (previously) American ideals like liberty and equal protection, just don't have the traction that they used to.
And so we see a civilization in decline. A country founded on religious liberty has just made strict adherence to religious faith illegal. As I've said many times, I'm not a particularly good catholic, so it probably won't have much direct effect on me. But be assured, the country we leave our children will no longer be the America we remember. It's a country ruled by judicial fiat and the cult of personality. It's a country who's popular culture seeks only to destroy the very institutions and principles upon which it is based. We should be surprised not at all when a formerly great nation can no longer muster the faith in itself to continue to be great.
Head for the lifeboats boys, the ship is finally going down. There is nothing left to stop it, and no one with the strength to try.
