A Washington D.C. minister called for civil war after the United States Supreme Court rejected a christian coalitions bid to place a discriminatory marriage resolution before the residents of our nations capital.
Rev. Anthony Evans, a D.C. minister who is working with Jackson to overturn the D.C. same-sex marriage law, called the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear the Jackson case “a travesty of justice.”
“This law was forced down the church’s throat and what the Supreme Court has set up is the greatest civil war between the church and the gay community,” Evans said.
Evans went on to say that of course the christian church loves the “dirty homosexual” but must be allowed the religious freedom to legally discriminate against those they view as morally impure…or else!
Reverend Evans is echoing the growing violent rhetoric heard in christian churches around the country. Many chrisitan ministers are calling for their congregants to arm themselves and defend America against the Gay and Lesbian threat. Still others are urging christians to disregard equality legislation in conflict with biblical law.
The call for revolution is particularly alarming considering the ultimate goal of christianity places the United States under biblical law.
“The Christian goal for the world,” theologian David Chilton has explained, is “the universal development of Biblical theocratic republics.” Scripturally based law would be enforced by the state with a stern rod in these republics.
This model of christian nationalism is unfolding with terrifying ease in targeted countries around the globe. Gay and Lesbian minorities in developing countries such as Uganda and Kenya are particularly at risk as christians push legislation bringing secular law in line with gods law.
Christian leaders admits that they are using underdeveloped countries in Africa to prefect the message and method that will ultimately bring the world under christian dominion.
The rhetoric and violence against our community will only increase as we win our rights and establish Gay and Lesbian equality in America. Arm yourself and stand against the theofascists planning our destruction.
