What follows are my thoughts on this matter and a long comment I had just made to another blog about what I classified as the corrupt way of the world and how bad it’s gotten. This all dovetails as I see it.
NO WAY! The damn corrupted government of today has no power to tell this minister who to perform or officiate a marriage ceremony over because regardless of location this goes completely against the personal faith and practice of the minister’s religion which would not be a separation of church and state, but, more to the point of it being the state telling this minister what and how to believe as her religion, not what God in her faith says she must adhere to as her belief and practice of her Christian religion.  But now we see government allowing riots and mayhem in many states with lack of any accountability for most of the perpetrators and yet a Christian Minister gets hassled for exercising the freedom of her religion rights and good faith practice! This county in Ohio has violated her religious freedom and several other laws as I see it, and, should pay the consequences which to me would be any public officials involved in this horrid decision should be removed from office and hefty fines as well as a huge penalty settlement should be paid to the plaintiff hands down! Between this and the wicked Biden now saying that he wants Islam taught in all schools is a clear sign of the culture of death or (evil) has taken hold in America; where this crap can even be debated! A moment of prayer was kicked out of the schools but Biden says a cult antichrist belief system can be taught to all children? This nation under God was founded on distinct Christian fundamental precepts and beliefs which are the foundational pillars of this “Republic one Nation under God;” but, evil agents like Biden would toss all of that aside and ruin America to replace it with Islam, and allow public officials to be telling Christian Ministers what to believe and how to do it! We are at the precipice no doubt; this is nearly full blown hell on earth!
(What follows are my thoughts I had just made to another blog about what I classified as the corrupt way of the world and how bad it’s gotten.)
“What you speak to here is the way of the world and it is completely corrupt so nothing we do will change that. I have found lately that I see people giving lip service to one thing or another but all the while they are two-faced and fickle. On top of that today many if not most people are so selfish and arrogant they are vicious backstabbers when it comes to self over doing the right thing for others. This internet has become a tool of seeking self-glory or aggrandizement or in other words look at me I’m somebody and you should give me likes or stroke my ego; while diverting or distracting people from actually functioning as a human being in the real world. A young woman on her blog yesterday was explaining how she can’t stand the way she is always scrolling her smart phone and can’t put it down or accomplish anything as she admitted she can’t get into a college or university because her entrance exams on a few occasions were terrible and only because she hasn’t been learning or working to better herself for the last several years through high school and now at 21 years of age is as I see it a flunky or reject, all because the system is wicked and twisted making losers out of multitudes of people who are totally dysfunctional, or in other words not able to function in the real world! That young lady was in India, but, I recently saw another blog where a 19 year old who was supposed to be having an actual graduation at the high school wasn’t because of the pandemic so what she was busy doing was trying to make a video of her carrying out some stupid stunt at home with her siblings helping, that she hopes will go viral! The world today has become way too fake and full of self-serving bigots and liars or outright meaningless gibberish behaviors like all of the video clips on net sites or on TV of young people doing stunts and making their pets or other farm animals behave for a video to accomplish what? Is that meaningful entertainment? People don’t have better things to do? It’s like a world of mental midgets are going to be ruling this insane world in the future. Look at the MSM and what governments are doing with all the political lies and partisan manipulation of the masses all of it total lies to seduce or subdue the masses into a conformity that will allow the 2% or less of the human race to rule the rest. The human race had been for decades and is now at a fever pitch heading toward totalitarian control of the masses and completely turning away from God and His plan while accepting the secular poison of a world of sin and criminality with less rule of law all the time, or in many locales allowing Islam an actual antichrist cult to flourish; even here in the USA the sick evil Biden running for president saying Islam should be taught in all public schools! What? They kicked God and a moment of prayer out of the school system, but, Islam is good; this is work of the devil; a culture of death. This can only be heading to complete ruin and worshiping of evil. All this BS of people wearing masks is part of this controlling people like so many head of sheep. There is no virus pandemic that will wipe out masses of people if they don’t follow government mandates and no vaccine is required just like when the flu season comes each year people can get a flu shot or not but the flu comes and goes and mutates to a new strain the next year while some people die, which has always been the case and won’t change! The change is that nefarious devils are now planning to use all of this against we masses to control and change our behaviors and ultimately kill off as many as they deem necessary; or genocide. Big Pharma have been taking the lead for decades with ads on TV or the net to tell us to ask our doctor for this prescription or another to make this ache or pain and a variety of symptoms go away because medicine is the cure all and end all! People aren’t living right and are being damaged by the system in so many ways as for example fast foods or unbalanced diets along with recreational drugs such as pot smoking. All the stress and anger isn’t making people healthy either. Why am I saying all this, one reason because it really has me disgusted, but, I can only say to all of this, to people out there, that there isn’t much time to check into reality before it’s too late and first turn to God 100% asking for His deliverance because nothing here is working out and the human race is on a rapid run to hell in a hand basket. That’s my take and whether it helps anyone or doesn’t I have no idea but I needed to speak my mind. Thanks for the opportunity to do it here.”

Owner of Covenant Weddings, Woman files lawsuit over law that would require her to wed same-sex couples

An Ohio Christian business owner and ordained minister filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday against Cuyahoga County over a law that requires her to officiate same-sex weddings in violation of her religious beliefs.

Kristi Stokes, the plaintiff in the case, is an ordained minister and the owner of Covenant Weddings, from which she officiates weddings and composes wedding homilies, vows and prayers for such ceremonies.

At issue is a Cuyahoga County law that prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodation on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression. The law presumably applies to Covenant Weddings because it defines a “place of public accommodation” as any “place for the sale of merchandise to the public, or any other place of public accommodation or amusement where the accommodation advantages, facilities, or privileges thereof are available to the public.”

Stokes, an evangelical…

  1. Very interesting post, as usual, Lawrence !
    I believe that religiophobia, unfortunately, is on the rise.

    Biden, in suggesting that information about Islam be taught in schools, was arguing, I think, that a course in comparative religions should be taught in schools. I believe , also, that he was appealing to Muslim voters.

    We want to live in a society where religiophobia decreases. That means that people need to have a general knowledge of what religions actually teach, so that fear of ‘the other’ decreases.

    We want societies where people can live together in harmony, since most countries now have people of different faiths living together.

    Religion is, of course, intensely personal, and everyone, of course, is convinced that their religion is ‘best’. And obviously, people become intensely defensive of their ‘religion’.
    I am very proud of Canada, in that, generally, people of many faiths live together in harmony.
    Toronto, the capital of Ontario, is an excellent example of people respectfully living side by side, and appreciating each other’s customs and traditions.

    Since I have a family member who is Muslim, I have learned a great deal about Islam. I will not be converting, of course, but becoming educated about what the faith actually teaches has helped me a lot. The faiths have a common ancestor, in Abraham.

    A colleague of my husband is a Sikh, and again, obviously I will not be converting to his faith, but I have become educated about what this religion teaches.

    In the same way, I have encountered tremendous prejudice against my own faith, Catholicism, from people who have false beliefs about what this religion teaches. Much of the prejudice, and very harsh criticisms of my faith has come, ironically, from fellow Christians !

    Religions can be studied, but not faith.
    Faith is God’s supernatural gift to us.

    Let us pray that the Holy Spirit grant a spirit of respect and understanding. Christians are known as people of peace, as we follow our Lord, who is ‘The Prince of Peace.

    Thanks again, Lawrence, for your well-researched article. 🤗🐕🌷

    1. Sally… 🤗🐕🌷 thanks for offering your personal thoughts but unfortunately I’m going to be heavy handed here due to the subject and not you personally along with personal experience I have no choice nor do I want any, but we have a major crosswind here! “Muslim, I have learned a great deal about Islam. I will not be converting, of course, but becoming educated about what the faith actually teaches has helped me a lot. The faiths have a common ancestor, in Abraham.” Old Testament teaching that the original Muslims followed was completely altered when Muhammad in 632 AD said that in his last vision he was told that no other religions and especially referring to Christianity were incompatible with Islam and all other faiths must convert or its followers must be put to death! I don’t see where you get compatibility out of that! And Biden is an evil lying devil so nothing he says is worth a damn! All the things he and the Dem party were fabricating and accusing Trump of doing in the Ukraine him and his son along with many other Dems were guilty of doing with the leadership there and many oligarchs over the time Obama ran the most corrupt administration in American history. He and Obama caused more destruction of society and the US Constitution than any other politicians in history could have dreamed of. Biden saying they should teach about Islam is an evil demonic thing for him to say! Where was his concern for religion as in Christianity which America was founded on using very major precepts as a foundation for the Bill of Rights and US Constitution; being pulled out of all public schools over the decades when he began his criminal politicians career and no moment of silence was to be allowed for any children to pray in school? He even calls himself a Catholic and I know Catholic priests that agree with me that he is not one but only says it for votes! The man is a sexual predator and raped Tara Reade in a government building when she was in her 20’s; I believe her 100% the left says no! But, said yes to a porn whore accusing Trump of a sexual escapade! And by the way the evidence coming out so far from the evil Epstein shows that as soon as he made a pass at an underage girl at Trumps Maralago he was banned totally from Trumps establishments back in 2001, while Clinton and the Biden’s continued hobnobbing with or even visiting Epstein’s infamous child sex camp island up till recently just before his arrest and death! Biden says only what will get him votes and keep the radical left on his side, Obama was the exact same way!
      I quote you again, “Much of the prejudice and very harsh criticisms of my faith has come, ironically, from fellow Christians!” You’re wrong because in Syrian Catholics, whole families, were tortured, raped and burned alive after even watching members of their own families beheaded for being Catholics or Christians period by the butcher Muslims forming their new Caliphate like the one after Muhammad made his proclamations and died, all the way up to the Middle Ages to the Crusades which were a reaction to the Muslims and their take over and destruction within the many European Christian countries of the time! I don’t know how you can begin to compare Catholic bashing by other Christians with the evil diabolical atrocities committed by Muslims who decide to go fanatical jihad. And now have infiltrated Canada vastly only waiting for their appropriate opportunity to create a Caliphate and assign Shari’a Law to Canada in which a husband is allowed to beat his wife and a woman can be stoned to death for showing possible infidelity. These modern day Muslims are worse than the ones prior to Muhammad and are totally whacko! All the while the other Muslims that witnessed ISIS Jihadists murdering all these Christians do not lift a finger to stop all that horror! Muslims are a fraud religion and are only a political ideology not of God; but of Satan! You should read Raymond Ibrahim’s book Sword and Scimitar, he is a foremost EXPERT on Islam and all the Middle East governments and religions, but, also has a comprehensive background in all the old languages and knows what was said and what is truth! Muhammad himself declared war on Christendom and said God told him they are totally incompatible, and so Muslims will never except Jesus as God; but; more importantly than even that was Muhammad stating that God told him all other religions must convert to Islam or the members must be put to death!! Don’t get me going about Canada! Your country is out to lunch with that lunatic Trudeau the Trustee Boy playing globalist fancy pants leader. He has brought your nation to 3rd world status and it’s only going to get worse! Not only did he bring Jihadist into Canada from Syria at the close of that war but he now is bringing in hundreds of thousands of unvented foreigners which will come back to bite your country on the ass. Here is a piece of info I had to show a Muslim who attacked my writing about Jesus on Christmas Day a few years ago on another social media platform. I never engaged with this man other than when he made statements that were erroneous attacks on Jesus to my blog for a couple of days before Christmas, then the big attack from him came right on Christmas Day and I’m one who never invades Muslim writings or blogs and tries to tear them apart though I could justifiably. I do not see these political ideologues as peaceful people at all; on the contrary they are very deceptive and lie through their teeth. Even their Muslim philosophy condones it when it advances their cause; just like certain ones are doing here in the US government, and, God does not condone deception or lies at all! Maybe you and others think you have a leg up with them and can trust such people but I’m no fool and will never trust them at all!
      Remember what the Holy Scriptures say about Lukewarm! There is no middle ground with Islam associated with Christianity. Jesus is God or He is a fraud and to Islam He was nothing more than some joker walking around talking whatever; say like Muhammad actually did!
      My retort to the Muslim attacker on Christmas Day!
      Aツaz Your own words; “live the way you want and not dictate as you are just a human and not a messenger of GOD, like Jesus and Muhammad were.” Muslim hoax” I am wondering how you equate a “hoax” with facts of an Islamic Empire” Wonder NO MORE, Pay attention and learn of your blaspheming error! You have a huge inaccuracy that needs to be corrected! Saying that Jesus is another prophet like Muhammad is blasphemous. First Jesus was not a mere prophet but was God Himself and therefore the Redeemer and Savior of Mankind as he said. Muhammad was only a supposed prophet and there is irrefutable evidence in the historical text of the time he lived that points to his being an outright liar and heretic as well as a criminal and child molester along with his being a polygamist! The following statements are highly accurate and actually proven. “In 632, only months before he died, Muhammad apparently met for the first time with a Christian community as such. An official delegation of Christians, probably led by a bishop, came to Mecca from Najran in Yemen. After engaging the Christians in discussion, the Prophet is said to have realized that Christian teachings are indeed incompatible with Islam, after which the revelation followed that only Islam is acceptable to God as a religion. The Quran also says very specifically that those who refer to Jesus as God are blasphemers, and that Christians saying that Christ is the son of God is an imitation of Jews, who earlier had said that Ezra is the son of God. According to the Quran Jesus was only a servant; Jesus the son of Mary was no more than an apostle of God. Quranic verses dealing with Jesus’ death have been interpreted differently by commentators, but generally they have been taken to mean that Jesus did not die by crucifixion. For Christians the Quran has thus served as a denial of Jesus’ incarnation and death on the cross and of the reality of the Trinity.” (Oxford University Press) These two points alone put Islam and the Muslims completely at odds with Jesus Christ and all Christians and are the enemies of such! Muhammad himself began this conflict and was the spoiler and Heretic directly attacking God’s plan as foretold by all the previous prophets going all the way back to Abraham. Things have been in conflict because of Muhammad ever since and are getting worse, this will not resolve until Islam is Chastised or obliterated as a fake religion started by a false prophet and therefore heretic! In Summary Muslims are in complete denial of what Jesus Christ said and who He was which makes them Anti-Christ and supportive of the Devil and all that is unholy. Basically Muhammad started this Blasphemy back in 632 AD and outright declared War on Christendom! Islam you yourself stated is an EMPIRE which puts it in the category of being a Nation not a Religion! It is not a religion that is backed up with solid historical evidence and prophecy over time by many prophets other than what Muhammad said, he made it all up, the heretic! Islam seeks to conquer and must be stopped! And it will be! God’s avenging angels are going to obliterate Islam and any of its followers, they are minions of Satan!
      After this experience on Christmas day which I never in my entire life had any such blatant Anti-Christ in my face attack, and of all things on Christmas day activity, tells me that we are in the end times as Satan is working through all means available at a fever pitch to Attack Christianity and it’s faithful because the time is drawing near for God to return! Of course I could be off by many years but this is my hunch as there are so many signs and I was attacked by evil several years ago to stop me from being the witness and faithful one that I am for Jesus. A woman of a Christian order told me back then that there was a reason I was suffering for Jesus and it would become apparent at some point in the future why I was being prepared! Now I see in retrospect that God did want me to do something for Him and it could be just to be as I am doing or maybe something more, like a priest told me recently, wait and see!
