When The State Owns Your Soul

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


By Lee Duigon
June 19, 2014


Sometimes violence, even murder, isn’t the worst thing you can do to a fellow human being.


Stealing his soul, taking over the management of his conscience and his mind—those are worse.


America reached that depth of wickedness recently when the Colorado “Civil Rights” Commission ordered a Christian baker and his employees (including his 87-year-old mother) to undergo “sensitivity training” until they are proved to be “rehabilitated” from their religious beliefs. This was because the baker declined to make a cake for a lesbian parody of a wedding—which would have entailed his knowing participation in a third party’s act of sin.


Before there was sensitivity training, they’d stuff you into a corrugated aluminum sweat box in the sun until your mind was right. Then the Soviets came up with psychiatric hospitals for dissenters. These were considered improvements over the ancient Roman method, which was to simply kill you if you wouldn’t go along with Caesar.


But that’s not good enough for modern Caesars. After all, once they’ve killed you, what more can they do to you? The Colorado tyrants are more ambitious, in that respect, than Nero ever was. They don’t just want you put out of the way. They can’t be content with merely destroying the baker’s business and livelihood.


Like Satan himself, they want the man’s soul.


Almighty God respects free will. He permits us to sin, even with sin’s consequences, rather than force us to love Him against our will.


But the state of Colorado claims an authority greater than God’s. Nothing will content these creatures but to force a man to abandon his conscience and join in on the sinning.


A judge has called that “the price of citizenship.”


Well, the price is too damned high—and I say “damned” because that is what it is.


Are we to bow down to this and say, “We have no king but Caesar”?


And what’s it for? To establish sin as virtue. To supplant Christian morality with a new system of “morality” that didn’t exist 25 years ago: one which repudiates the Bible’s teaching that homosexual acting-out is sin, and proclaims it praiseworthy, honorable, and good—and you’d better agree, if you know what’s good for you.


I am a writer. Why should I be any safer than a baker, a photographer, or a florist? What if a pair of lesbians should come to me and demand that I write an essay “celebrating” their ungodly imitation of a marriage, and even read it aloud at their gathering? Do I have the right, as master of my conscience, to refuse? Will the State decree that if I don’t write this, I can’t write anything at all? Will they sentence me to sensitivity training if I don’t obey?


How can such things happen in America? Where can we find in our Constitution, or in any of the writings of our founders, a single line suggesting that the State shall be our conscience?


And all King George III wanted was a tea tax.
