Church Persecution - Compromise or Become Criminals
If a new law is past in the U.S., then it seems that soon anyone mentioning anything bad at all about homosexuality (that is, homosexual acts), like the fact that it is a devastatingly unhealthy lifestyle, or what the bible says about it can be branded a criminal or jailed.
peech turns a three-year sentence into a 30-year sentence for a state "hate crime" violation, just what might H.R. 1592 do on the federal level? As Rep. (and former Judge) Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, pointed out on the House Judiciary Subcommittee, if passed, H.R. 1592 is going to put pastors in prison. Pointing to Title 18 of the US Criminal Code, Section 2 (a):Why is it that the moonbat left continue to try and create new laws when they don't want to enforce the current ones?
(a) Whoever commits an offense against the United States or aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures its commission, is punishable as a principal. –18 USC Sec. 2
Pastor? Have you ever counseled from a biblical perspective or read from Roman 1? I Corinthians 6? Genesis 19? Leviticus 18 or 20? Then, if H.R. 1592 becomes law and someone who has attended your church, read your materials or heard your broadcast commits a crime – such as pushing away a cross-dresser's unwelcome advances – you are "punishable as a principal," as someone who "counsels" and "induces" the now-illegal belief that homosexual behavior is a sin.
I'll give you a hint...because they want laws which will control how people think.
It's a brave new world.
