America’s Biggest Lie: You can’t legislate morality

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With red-faced indignation liberals preached a one-point sermon for years: “You can’t legislate morality!” Their scowl and scorn was usually aimed at certain Christian leaders and politicians.

Once they won over certain liberal theologians and churchmen, the liberal vanguard became emboldened to castigate all other religious resisters of their secular agenda as “Bible-thumpers” and backwoods bigots. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” taught Saul Alinsky.     

Mesmerized by their “morality can’t be legislated” mantra, conservatives seemed naïve to the liberal “bait-and-switch” as they legislated their views and values into American courts.

Every American law reflects some moral code. Someone’s brand of morality always prevails – religious or irreligious.

A deconstruction of our historic Judeo-Christian moral consensus over the last 50 years has resulted in the growth of secular-humanism rooted in naturalism.        

Naturalism is premised on the promise that everything that exists can be explained by natural causes. God is left out of the picture entirely. Without divine revealed truth, longstanding cultural mores, beliefs, and laws are reduced to the morality of the uppity chattering class made up of mainstream media elites, environmentalists, globalists, feminists, and liberal academia.           

Human sexuality and gender are issues of great confusion and concern in America today. We had moral clarity until only recently.

The creation of male and female human beings in the image of God was the crowning event in the creation story found in the book of Genesis. Their first command was to “be fruitful and multiply” (Gen. 1:28). Regardless of your belief in creation or evolution, we can agree that if you are reading this article, your birth and existence is the result of the procreation of a man and a woman.   

The institution of marriage between a man and woman has provided stability for children, the family, and the culture in which they live. The responsibility and commitment of marriage and family has kept more men from living irresponsibly than any other cause.

Every U.S. president in American history has supported the sacred institution of traditional marriage until Barack Obama. Even he was dishonest about his true beliefs per his former political strategist, David Axelrod.

In Axelrod’s book entitled Believer: My Forty Years in Politics, the author candidly reveals how Barack Obama misled Americans for his own political benefit when he claimed in the 2008 election to oppose same-sex marriage for religious reasons.  

Zeke J. Miller, writing for TIME magazine, reports that Axelrod counseled Obama to conceal his true position on gay marriage because of opposition to it in black churches.

Speaking on the definition of marriage before Saddleback Church in 2008, Obama looked Pastor Rick Warren in the eye and said, “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. [congregational applause] For me as a Christian it’s also a sacred union, you know, God’s in the mix.”

Six months before his 2012 election president Obama’s progression on same-sex marriage was “completed.” Obama became adamant in his support for same-sex marriage; however, per Axelrod’s book, Obama’s mind had been made up for a long time.

After his second election was secure, Obama went into overdrive pushing the gay agenda. By 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that same-sex marriage would be a constitutional right guaranteed under the 14th Amendment.

Next on the agenda was transgender rights and Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce) became the celebrity cheerleader seeking to make America understand that gender is separate from biological identity.

North Carolina became the focal point as the LGBT community claimed the state’s new bathroom law was anti-LGBT. Emotions kicked into high gear and the state was soon caught up in boycotts, etc. But did anyone read the bill?

Transgender people were not discriminated against, and allow me to use Bruce Jenner as an example.

If Bruce Jenner had hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery in becoming “Caitlyn” and (here’s the key) legally changed his gender marker on his birth certificate to “female,” then the former Bruce Jenner can use “women’s” restrooms in North Carolina. That is the law. Why? Because that is the gender stated on the new birth certificate.

But why has so much rage and financial blackmail been aimed at North Carolina?

Within the LGBT community you have transgenders (they are the “T” in LGBT) and “gender nonconformists.” 

Gender nonconformists demand the right to be allowed to designate gender on a “fluid” basis. This person may feel like a male on Monday and a female on Saturday. This more radical segment of the LGBT community seeks to utterly erase factual gender definitions in America. This group hijacked the movement in North Carolina and confusion, bitterness, and misunderstanding has been the result.   

But what do you expect – when God is no longer in the mix? Or, science for that matter!
