Well structured blog post. Christians must continue to stand for truth in the face of coming persecution for adhering to that truth instead of being blown by the winds of spiritual rebellion
“The movement to establish homosexual unions as “marriage” rather than simply acknowledged legal property contracts commonly referred to as civil unions is part of the groundwork being laid for a coming persecution in America against anyone who holds to anything traditional, especially religious beliefs. Europe’s law curtailing religious liberty, often exhibited in the issue of “gay” “rights” is the pattern, or the means. All out persecution is the intended ends.” – Talon

Regardless of today’s Supreme Court ruling we know several things, including the fact that SCOTUS is not the final arbiter of truth as history has shown. We also know the political forces in America, driven by spiritual forces in my view, are attempting to form our nation into a European style govt. As such the moral decay and weakness in the face of the enemies of civil society that is even more visible in Europe than in America will soon be our own if the trend continues.
Yesterday, June 24th, 2013 I posted a message I forwarded to my leftist Senator. Today I received a response. Needless to say their response required my own.
As a reminder let me begin with a repeat of my post as follows;
As I am on the email list of the great Senator Ted Cruz of Texas I received his message this morning about contacting my Senators, who I prefer to refer to as Obsenators because they both routinely support the obscene and unconstitutional. Here is what I sent them today. Somehow I’m not thinking it will help much.
“I know I’m wasting my time asking you to not support the new so called “Border Security” bill which is really an amnesty bill intended to create a permanent Democrat power structure but I’m willing to go on the record as asking. Sadly you will destroy our country to retain power for your like minded leftists.
That is all”
To which I received the following response today;

Subject: U.S. Senator (redacted) responding to your messageDear (redacted) :Thank you for your letter sharing your concerns about immigration reform in the United States. I appreciate the opportunity to share my thoughts on this important issue.I believe comprehensive immigration reform is necessary to fix our broken immigration system. Comprehensive reform will allow the federal government to create effective immigration policies that better reflect the short-term and long-term security and economic needs of our nation.Comprehensive immigration reform should secure our national borders, toughen penalties against those who engage in fraud or misuse the immigration system, combat unauthorized employment, and protect American jobs. Furthermore, reforms must provide our law enforcement officers with the resources needed to keep smugglers, narcotics, and weapons out of our country. At the same time, reforms should be sensible and fair, meet the needs of families and workers, and offer a pathway to earned citizenship that requires undocumented immigrants to pay taxes and fines, pass background checks, and learn English.In May, the Senate Judiciary Committee met several times to debate comprehensive immigration reform legislation, known as the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act” (S. 744), and vote on more than 200 amendments, all of which can be viewed at http://www.judiciary.senate.gov. On May 2 1 , I voted for final passage of the amended bill, which the committee passed by a vote of 13 to 5 for consideration by the full Senate.Previously, the Judiciary Committee held hearings on April 19, 22, and 23, to hear from experts about how to improve the bill. Please know that you can read witness testimony and watch webcasts of the hearings at the committee’s website.This immigration bill provides a practical way for undocumented immigrants to earn citizenship that would be contingent upon securing our borders. Specifically, the bill would allocate $4.5 billion for security and fencing measures deemed necessary to achieve and maintain persistent surveillance at the border and to reach the goal of apprehending or turning back over 90% of illegal border crossers in even the highest-risk sectors. Undocumented immigrants would not be able to adjust to legal permanent resident status until these measures are in place.Any path to citizenship would also be contingent upon addressing the problem of foreign nationals who overstay their visas and deterring future illegal immigration through the implementation of an effective and mandatory employment verification system. The legislation would also ensure American workers are not displaced if employers hire foreign workers in situations where they cannot find Americans willing and able to do the job.Again, it is helpful for me to know your views. While we may have different perspectives on the issue of comprehensive immigration reform, rest assured that I appreciate hearing from you and will be mindful of your thoughts as the full Senate debates the bill. I invite you to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (redacted) should you have any additional comments or questions.
United States Senator
To which I today responded, only to discover it was to a non returnable address;
The system is “broken,” as you acknowledge, but only because both parties, primarily yours, has propagated its breaking for political gain through expansion of dependent rolls as a permanent voting block without regard for the consequence of national security, individual liberty, or economic health of our nation. Everything else you wrote is counter to Democrat party actions making you either a liar or worse. If you truly believed what you wrote you would be at severe odds with your party and the rift would be national headlining news. The media silence however is sufficient evidence of the inaccuracy of your claim.
You are repeating the “we will secure the border” lie perpetrated on the American people back during the Reagan era and you know they will sadly accept it again.
May your shame for what you have done follow you eternally. May future “American” serfs remember you as the generation of Washington elitists who damned them to slavery.
Don’t you just love having a one sided debate with your “master?”

Any time I see young people mocking the elderly I shake my head in amazement, even when I was young myself. The challenges of age we observe the elderly facing are the challenges we will be facing ourselves some day…perhaps some day soon. To laugh at their difficulty is to laugh at ourselves, foolishly
