During the anti-war protests in the 60s it was the folks on the left side of the aisle who screamed “censorship” any time one of their own was not allowed to speak because of their anti-war perspective. Their stand for what they thought was right resulted in a quite a few good Supreme Court cases protecting the right to speak out even when espousing views that are unpopular.
Morality has to be measured by a higher standard, and our founding fathers believed that to be the Bible. Unfortunately, the Human Rights Campaign isn’t all wrong. There are many people of faith who have decided that the Bible really doesn’t mean what it says about homosexual behavior (see I Cor. 6:9-11 and Rom. 1:26-27). Instead they are doing what the Apostle Paul predicted in 2 Timothy 4:3 2,000 years ago. “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”
Thank God for folks like Pastor Laurie who are brave enough to preach what the Bible says about sexual morality, even if it’s unpopular. Thank God for solid civic groups like the National Day of Prayer Task Force who have the audacity to ask Pastor Laurie to speak at their event, and the character not to back down in the face of public pressure. And finally, thank God for those protestors in the 60s who stood for what they believed, even though it wasn’t popular. They established some great legal precedent that we at Alliance Defending Freedom are using today to defend people like Pastor Laurie who are being censored because they don’t toe the party line.
If you find yourself in a situation where you can’t speak at school, in the public square, or at work, contact us immediately. We will protect your right to stand for the Truth – even if it’s unpopular.
