Thank God for the First Amendment

Silverfiddle Rant!
Much of society is now a hooting nuthouse full of unhinged inmates trampling logic and common sense, and indifferent or even hostile to traditional religious beliefs. This is where the Christian admonition kicks in: Be in the world but not of the world.
The culture war is over – Conservative Christians lost
Traditional western jurisprudence has much of its roots in Biblical morality, but voters, elected representatives, and judges are rejecting those moral foundations, and the change has been rapid.
In 1986, the Supreme Court cited Blackstone to uphold Georgia’s anti-sodomy law that outlawed homosexual sex. (Bowers v. Hardwick).  In 1991, the Supreme Court declared anti-sodomy laws unconstitutional.  (Lawrence v. Texas).  Gay marriage followed in 2015. (Obergefell v Hodges
Blackstone’s compendium of western law explicates a nuanced approach to abortion, as does Jewish teachings.  People who want an absolute abolition of the practice must first acknowledge that they hold an extreme and minority position. I don’t mean that as a pejorative.  True Christianity is uncompromising and not for the faint of heart. 
Coercion or Persuasion?
Religious right Republicans could win the House, Senate and White House and launch a farrago of revanchist federal laws including prohibitions on abortions and gay marriage, etc, but they would trigger their own version of one person, one vote, one time.  Voters would throw them out and banish them for a generation while the newly-elected would re-enshrine those rights.  Cramming laws down the throats of people who don’t want them is a form of dictatorship.
Politics aside, imagine the torrent of ramifications flowing from such laws, and the impact on society. 
We are living in a neo-pagan age, and Christians are now in the realm of moral persuasion. The Lord’s work will not be done in our legislatures and court houses, so roll up your sleeves, hoist high the First Amendment banner, and get to work.

    “I have become all things, to all people, in order that I might win some for Christ.” “Neither do I condemn you.” ” I have come to save, not to condemn” What did he say? They will know us by our hate? No, that’s not what he said.
