• Plutocrats, perverts pursue overthrow of constitutional protections.
By Ronald L. Ray —
Indiana is the latest battleground in the culture wars against traditional morality and fundamental American freedoms.
The assault is being waged by proponents of special rights for homosexual perversion against Christians trying to protect the freedom to practice their religion, defend marriage and family and carry on private business as they see fit. Fighting on the front lines alongside the so-called “lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender (LGBT) community” are Big Business billionaires wielding the weapons of economic extortion against legislatures and governors. Whipping up a pseudo-popular, hate-filled frenzy among the culture destroyers are the mainstream media shock troops, waging a bare-knuckled propaganda campaign.
The casus belli is Indiana’s recently passed Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), which restricts the state’s ability to impose on the religious rights of individuals. In this, there is nothing new. Former President Bill Clinton signed similar federal legislation in 1993. What is different, however, is that Indiana’s law extends protection of religiously-based actions to private businesses. Critics claim this is driven by anti-homosexual prejudice, especially about homosexual marriage, which has been turned magically into a “civil right” by corrupt federal judges and intellectually dishonest journalists.
But while defense of traditional marriage is one aspect, many other government attacks occur against Christian beliefs and practices, which RFRA is intended to reduce. A clear example is the Obamacare requirement that pro-life Christians be forced to provide abortions and contraception in their insurance plans and medical institutions. Obviously, then, opposition to RFRAs in 20 states is just a wedge issue to promote the sodomite agenda.
As Pat Buchanan commented in a recent column, “The gay rights community seems to have advanced from asking for tolerance of their lifestyles—to demanding punishment for those who refuse to accept its moral equality.
American society used to understand that a private business is not obliged to provide its goods or services to anyone, for any reason or none. The late Senator Barry Goldwater stood in the breach to defend this common-sense, common law, natural-law position—to no avail. After passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, government thugs forced hotels to give rooms to fornicators and homeowners to sell to unwanted buyers. Things have only worsened radically.
Just ask Kevin and Crystal O’Connor, owners of Memories Pizza in the little town of Walkerton, near South Bend, Indiana. When media reported that the Christian couple would not cater homosexual weddings, they were deluged with hate-filled protests from the LGBTs, received arson threats against their business and even death threats. They were so terrified that they closed their business in a town of less than 2,500 people and hid in their home.
On the positive side, conservative Black media commentator Lawrence Billy Jones III has so far facilitated the collection of $842,442 in an Internet fundraiser to help the couple, who still hope to re-open their restaurant. Everyday Americans are still sane. Memories Pizza reopened for business Thursday, April, 9, 2015.
The story of the O’Connors, though, is not unique. Homosexual activists in several states deliberately have been targeting Christian businesses by trying to force them to provide services for homosexual weddings, and then harassing and suing the refuseniks into submission and bankruptcy. Yet, when the shoe is on the other foot, police and courts find nothing wrong with refusing service to Christians.
In the news world, even some individuals who claim to be conservatives are jumping on the pro-homosexual bandwagon. “Conservative” homosexual media mogul Matt Drudge delights in linking to stories about fruits and nuts. Former judge Andrew Napolitano—a Fox news darling—has abandoned his constitutional views in favor of a heavy-handed, government-might-makes-right argument defending the advance of the homosexual aggressors.
But as bad as the media’s propaganda barrage has been,what really turns legislators and governors into turncoats is the economic terrorism waged against normal people by giant corporations and their ultra-wealthy owners.
For example, Mark Benioff, the Jewish CEO of Salesforce, located in Indiana, called the RFRA “brutal” and planned to reduce his business presence there. Over 40 companies, including Walmart, Apple, Eli Lilly, General Electric, PayPal—and even the NCAA [National Collegiate Athletic Association] and “conservative” NASCAR [National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing]—threatened Indiana with grave economic consequences if they did not change or remove the law. Phony conservative Governor Michael Richard “Mike” Pence (R) could not comply fast enough, ramming a closed-door, back-room deal through the legislature to “protect” local homosexual rights laws in a handful of cities.
Weak-kneed political weasels and craven chambers of commerce could not fall on their faces fast enough before the plutocrats’ golden calf. Who needs principles when there is money to be made? According to CNN, Benioff was prompted to remark: “CEOs have a lot of power and control on investment in states. . . . One thing that you’re seeing is that there is a third [political] party emerging in this country, which is the party of CEOs.”
The representative rulers have abandoned the walls of the American “shining city on a hill,” allowing the perverted barbarians to overrun their lands and persecute the people. The people must now defend themselves against the culture destroyers—and even their own traitorous governments.

You have some problems with your Biblical exegesis.
Anytime the Bible speaks of genocide it wasn’t human nations being destroyed. Keeping things in context, those nations were offspring of the Genesis 6 union between fallen angels and human women. These nations were hybrid cannibalistic groups (Nephilim and Raphaim) that had only evil intent as they were completely evil and unable to act with any conscience. This is because they weren’t born with a conscience because of their non-human fathers.
This is what brought the flood. God in His grace destroyed the Earth in order to spare the human genome that would bring the Savior (Jesus Christ) via Noah and his family. Unfortunately, the flood didn’t keep the hybrids from coming again. The Bible speaks of them again after the flood.
I understand your misunderstanding. Scholars and pastors have misinterpreted Genesis 6 for centuries, causing unnecessary damage, confusion, and ridicule.
They teach their children that murder and lying are holy acts of a holy man. They worship the lying murdering god of a psychopathic murderer.
TRADITIONAL Western culture (Greece and Rome) accepts intimate sexual relationships between same sex individuals.
The U.S. Declaration of Independence specifically invokes the name of NATURE’S GOD and not Yaweh, or Jesus or Allah.
Believing in idiotic superstition requires that the capacity for rational thought be destroyed. Yet, not only religion can be used as a method of stupefying the masses. Mathematics and science are used to justify lies. Getting people to believe lies based on authority is practice in mathematics. Specifically, algebraic symbols are supposed to describe mathematical quantities. But the fake algebra imposed upon the populace in our schools requires the student to accept the absurdity that one can multiply a number by itself:
1. a negative number of times
2. a non-whole number of times.
Just because a self-consistent algebra describes such absurdities in symbolic form without contradicting itself it does not represent an underlying mathematical process. Such processes of multiplying a number by itself, a negative number of times, or of multiplying a number by itself a non whole number of times cannot be demonstrated mathematically.
Teaching people to believe in absurdities is how you destroy their capacity for rational thought. Only by abandoning rational critical thinking is it possible to believe LIES.
Faith is not a pretended relationship with imaginary people. Faith is a real relationship with real people that has real responsibilities and real consequences if those responsibilities. Responsibilities are projections into future circumstances shared by persons together. An eternal god has no future. Eternal gods are not capable of experiencing relationships of faith. Gods of lying murderers are idiotic fictions.
You are obviously an ignorant LGBT troll as you begin with lies about saying the dude ain’t “saved.” Why in the heck would you pray for someone’s Salvation if they are saved? Secondly, I don’t have to give scripture references if you knew your Bible, so please read yours, and HINT HINT, ALL the stories about after Jesus’s birth are in the New Testament.
Lastly I leave you with an excerpt from Dr. Martin Luther King. In his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote one of the greatest commentaries ever written about what being a Christian is about:
The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that “an unjust law is no law at all.” A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law…An unjust law is a code that a numerical or power majority group compels a minority group to obey but does not make binding on itself.
So you see, even one of America’s greatest opponents of oppression states how wrong you really are. Maybe you should change churches, that is if you have even ever stepped foot in one. Peace, and may the One True God of Heaven bless and draw you closer to actual truth.
As to the media of the day is referred in Prophecy to “The Prince of the power of air, the spirit that works in the children of disobedience.” With regards to the Biblical false Prophet “Freemasonry by Theosophy” to Zech 5—the curse of the Flying scroll and the wickedness in an Ephah can be denoted by QEI with the eyes of the theosophist Helena Blavatsky. Freemasonry of the ‘ole iniquity established at the time of QEI (the modern pioneer of the African slave trade carried forth into the new land) and theosophy influenced by familiar spirits carried by the two women Alice Bailey and Annie Beasant established upon her own pedestal in New York (one of the three parts that Babylon is divided) through the chained Statue of Liberty winding its way to the UN Theosophical prayer hall. The head symbol of Theosophy being the Hindu “OM” says much to all these even unto the “Sodom”—influencing the kingdoms of this world that sit against the Kingdom of God by His Christ.
Please let me note just 5 quick things about your post.
1) It is factually incorrect. I do not call the author an “infidel”—I pray for his salvation as a Christian. This is what I was taught to do as a Christian. I try to gently guide with Bible verse, not ranting hate. I would never question his commitment to Christianity (unlike your questioning of mine), but do pray for his Divine guidance.
2) You do not quote the Bible at all. You make grand, and unquoted allusions, highlighting one of the problems of the rabid right. You don’t know your Bible, you know what the hate-filled leaders want you to parrot.
3) The allusions you do make are to the Old Testament, not the new. I am sure you follow all the rules of Leviticus, including no shellfish, no clothes of mixed fabric and you have no issues with owning slaves.
4) You refer to the Constitution without reference. To date, RFRA has never been interpreted by the courts (the Constitutional approved interpreter of the Constitution) as a right to violate any law, let alone those you don’t agree with.
5) Notice the difference in the tone of the posts. Which are more Christ-like? Which of these writers would you rather have as a neighbor—a quiet Christian that tries to lead to salvation through prayer and reference to Bible verse, or a rant filled with angst, name calling and conspiracy finding nonsense (what gay agenda? how about a human rights agenda).
Wherefore stems your hate, your angst? Does it make you happy or fulfilled? Perhaps turning to Christ’s love, and extending that love to others, even those you disagree with (as the Bible teaches us), will make you a happier person.
Libertarians have always been in the pockets of big banking. Americans need to wake up, the key doctrine of Libertarianism is that self is above all. It isn’t Christian and will never be.
Normally I try my best to be politically correct, but you yourself not only did not pull any punches but you are a prime example of political correctness turned into blasphemy and ignorance. You obviously do not care for God’s laws nor the U.S. Constitution that is based on said laws. And I will use your cliche literally and pray for you and the condition of your being brainwashed by the LGBT lobbyists. You have some nerve using the guise of a Christian’s “love” and at the same time spew filth of hate towards godly principles.
Your little quote about Caesar’s taxes has nothing to do with this story, yet you attack the author as being an infidel. You also act as someone who does not expect a Christian to read your comment. No one is as blind as to take your rant of paying taxes as to be what the story is about. How dare you blaspheme and say that speaking out against sin is a ‘hate’ crime, and the only reason I say blaspheme is because you are perpetrating a fraud by posting as a Christian and spouting false doctrine. I do not care to guess where you get your biblical half-truths, however, I digress…..
The Bible has many examples that show when it is righteous to stand up for the truth even when it is against the so-called “law-of-the-land.” Pharaoh’s daughter kept safe baby Moses, against the laws in place at that time. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown in the fiery furnace when they did obey the ruler’s decree/law that everyone in the land had to bow down and worship the golden image that he had made, but God delivered them. Joseph and Mary fled to Egypt when the king Herod decreed that they turn in any young male children in the vicinity of Bethlehem to be put to death. As to the latter, is it then your statement of faith that they should have turned over child Christ to be murdered for sake of obeying the law? You sir either are a total brainwashed moron, or a LGBT troll. Please spare the world your trashing of God’s word, and ask for forgiveness for your own soul’s sake.
Please excuse the lengthy post, but let me relay a story from my past. In 2006 I had joined the First United Methodist church in Dallas, Texas. “The constitution of The United Methodist Church established five jurisdictions within the United States and it specifies which states will be a part of each. Each jurisdiction is responsible for boundaries of annual conferences within those states and electing its own bishops.” At my church the pastor’s wife was not only my Sunday school teacher, but she along with other pastors were regional representatives that went to a yearly conference. So, she went to New York for the annual meeting of regional overseers. As the N.Y. rep. was taking them from the airport to the conference meeting, the driver apologized that due to unforeseen circumstances, they would not be able to march in the LGBT parade as he had hoped. In the Methodist church, there are always two flags displayed to the side, behind and above the pastor. The American flag on one side, with the Methodist flag opposing, and per rules, these flags are to always be displayed. Also, there are always a couple of candles on the altar with the chalice we use weekly during the taking of communion. That being said, you can only imagine their shock that as they entered the church and all the altar items had been removed so a roll down banner could be displayed upon it saying “Happy Gay, Lesbian, transvestite (etc., etc.) …. Sunday.” They had even covered over the two flags with a giant Rainbow Coalition banner. Their jaws dropped. Then to make matters worse, when they were having the meeting, the guy would not get off the subject of a “gay agenda,” and refused to talk about legit church issues that the meeting was for. During her stay, she came to know that because of the extreme gay agenda perpetrated in New York where the governing body of the United Methodist Church is located, the church itself had voted that the General Conference/governing body be moved to a church in the state of Georgia instead, but baffling as it is, the N.Y. church refused to give up their power. That is the only reason the United Methodist was one of the first to jump on the band wagon for your ‘gay marriage’ acceptance. Their stance on this issue does not in any way speak for all churches nor for all of Christianity. In pagan Muslim countries, Christians are to be killed as either infidels or apostates, and that is the law of their land, so do you also advocate the killing of Christians as long as “Caesar” declares it legal? By quoting the Bible, Tom Johnson, it seems you have heaped hot coal on your own soul’s head. The so-called laws that make it illegal to speak out against perversion are not valid to begin with, as they are against the values and principles that are protected and afforded us under the U.S Constitution.
Lastly to the author, Ronald L. Ray, I would like to thank you for not only having Godly morals, but for having the gumption to boldly stand for what is right, and for writing this article. Very well said.
Freedom of religion means that you can actually worship without interference in your ceremony. But in the public sphere, you are to obey the law. Christ said this, “Give unto Caeser …” Mark 12:17.
Paul is far more blunt. Romans 13:1-7, which starts, “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. … Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”
It ends with something so profound, you must take heed, “Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; IF RESPECT, THEN RESPECT; IF HONOR, THEN HONOR.”
You spread hate and fear—this is not Christ’s message. I therefore pray for your salvation. You clearly are lost and are trying to lead others astray.
