What makes a race a race? Well, a race, such as there is such a thing, is identified by an appearance. When you are born Italian, through no choice or action, through no behavior or preference, you are Italian.

Homosexuals want to be afforded the same special status as ‘race’ based on debatable science that they are born that way.

But what makes a homosexual a homosexual? It is not a passive state. Just being doesn’t make anyone homosexual. What makes you homosexual is an action, whether it’s being attracted to someone of the same sex or actually fulfilling that attraction.

Now, because of our anti-discrimination laws and the legitimacy of this ‘race status’ claim that is being read into the recent SCOTUS decision by many gay rights activists, an attempt is being made to criminalize, or, at the very least, socially ostracize, anyone who dares declare homosexuality and its attached actions as being wrong.

Any person, business, institution, church, organization, or ministry that dares refuse to challenge the rightness of homosexuality, or decline to participate in homosexual actions that would cause them to violate their own standards will now face ostracism and/or criminal prosecution.

Of course, all of these entities are now locked out of the business of government work, meaning that, effectively, orthodox Christians are a special undesired, rights-deprived class.

Meanwhile, elected and appointed government officials are free to continue to demonize whites, to teach ‘white privilege’ using our coercively collected tax dollars.

To summarize- homosexuality, a ‘race’ defined only by an action, not a passive being, is protected. Whiteness, a ‘race’ defined by simply being, is not protected.

Freedom of Religion, one of the key foundational rights of human action, is no longer protected by this government.

Friends, if we were truly overwhelmingly a people of God, none of this condemnation of faith and whiteness would be happening today.

Homosexuals would be free to live as they choose and no one would be coerced into accepting and participating in their actions, or denied their right to participate.
