On Religious Liberty in Texas


Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”
Matthew 22:21

Cahnman's Musings wasn't planning to comment on yesterday's Supreme Court rulings related to homosexual 'marriage.'  Spiritual deception runs deep on this topic and it's easy for words to be twisted.  We can get in enough trouble warning about the perils of opposite sex promiscuity.


Then the Governor called another special session.

During the general session, there was talk of amending the Texas constitution to protect Religious freedom.  The bill died in committee.  Now is a good time to bring it back.

Homosexual 'marriage' has nothing to do with freedom or love.  Homosexual 'marriage' is the camel's nose under the tent of government censorship of Churches.  Once homosexual 'marriage' receives legal protection, it gives activist groups a new weapon to bludgeon Churches.  That's what happened in Canada and Denmark.  Something similar has already begun in New Mexico.

Yesterday, the organized homosexual movement spoke openly about where they intend to take Texas:
“The first stop is to pass a statewide fair employment act, and then to move on freedom to marry. More than 90% of businesses already have policies protecting LGBT workers, but Texas’ increasing reputation as a hostile place for certain groups is a threat to economic development.” As for marriage, “It would take 100 votes in the House to repeal the constitutional ban, and 75 to repeal Texas’ statutory marriage ban, both of which must go for marriage equality to be possible in Texas. We need the votes. It will take time and lots of work, but we’ll get there."
We already have a special session called.  We already have the votes.  While we're discussing issues related to God's word vs. the folly of man, we ought to bring back the religious liberty amendment.
