As was made perfectly clear during the recent uproar surrounding Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, liberals have for all intents and purposes declared war against Christianity on behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Now the progressives and LGBT’s have the powerful, if gaffe-prone, voice of Vice President Joe Biden speaking out to promote their agenda.
As part of an official statement in honor of the “International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia,” Biden called out “religious condemnation” of homosexuality, equating it with “violence with impunity.”
“Progress has also been made in many places around the world. But in too many places, life for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals is actually getting worse,” Biden said.
In this, he is actually right, as gays and lesbians are routinely put to death in many Middle Eastern nations that practice Islamic Shariah law.
However, according to WND, Biden then veered off sharply away from reality, saying, “In too many places, LGBT community members face violence with impunity, mistreatment by police, the denial of health care, or religious condemnation and social isolation.”
Essentially, Biden just proclaimed the rights of LGBTs to be greater than the rights of Christians, as he equated the widely held Christian belief that homosexuality is wrong with actual acts of real violence and discrimination against LGBTs.
In his view, and that of other progressives, Christians who merely disapprove of homosexuality because of their religious beliefs are no different than those hateful few who actually resort to violence against gays and are on par with the radical Muslims who put homosexuals to death simply for being gay.
This moral equivalency is so far off base, it is a wonder none of Biden’s aides caught it and dialed it back. Actually, on second thought, they probably feel the same way.
Progressive liberalism is waging a war against Christianity, and forcing the acceptance and open embrace of homosexuality is their main battle front at the moment.
Joe Biden just fired shots across the bow of all Christians who hold strong religious convictions — make no mistake about it.
