This is very scary. Every day the vicious gay left is increasingly using pernicious hate speech doctrine, and lies, to muzzle Christianity. Much more of this and we will have lost any 1st Amendment rights we’ve been able to hang onto. Christians need to quit cocooning and start speaking out now!
The 1st Amendment can’t be any clearer per Wikipedia:
The 1st amendment prohibits the making of any law "respecting an establishment of religion", impeding the free exercise of religion, infringing on the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.
This isn’t a first.
An online activism website has collected over 2,600 signatures within a few days to petition Apple Inc. for the removal of the iPhone app of a Christian ministry dealing with homosexuality.
Exodus International, which bills itself as the world’s largest Christian ministry dealing with homosexual issues, reported that a petition by the LGBT rights group Truth Wins Out on Change.org is quickly gaining support. In less than 24 hours, the petition was able to gather more than 1,300 signatures.
Truth Wins Out contends that the app conveys the ministry’s “hateful and bigoted” message.
… in November 2010, Apple removed the application of another Christian group following pressure from gay activist groups. The Manhattan Declaration app, which affirmed the sanctity of life, the historic understanding of marriage, and religious liberty, was also initially approved and rated as a 4+. But opponents called the app "anti-gay."
Though more than 46,000 people signed a petition asking the company to reinstate the Manhattan Declaration app, Apple rejected the request.
“We removed the Manhattan Declaration app from the App Store because it violates our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people,” said Apple.
Apple is muzzling Christians but not gay activists.
Look into this deeper, examine some of the “hateful and bigoted” Muslim jihadist bile out there, and ask why these terroristic jihadist organizations are not being subjected to the same muzzling.
First we let them take the Bible out of classrooms. Before long, on-line Bible apps will be denied us. Not far behind that will come “interfering with the right to peaceably assemble”.
Christians, including our leadership, need to quit cowering in our cocoons and speak out loudly and forcefully now!
