I don’t know if the end is near, but sometimes I wish it was.
That was the same day he announced it to his fiance…
This was hailed as a wonderful announcement and the player as a civil rights pioneer.
A commentator for ESPN, however, made the mistake of not celebrating the announcement, calling it sin in a measured statement of the conservative Christian position on homosexuality.
He will likely get fired…for stating the historic position of three major world religions on the subject.
The vast majority of main stream media will applaud when that happens.
“Tolerance” is only offered to those who are in agreement and some will no longer tolerate ancient religious beliefs in society…or those who hold them.
Part of the blame lies at our feet…we have at times been ungracious and unloving in the way we addressed these issues.
We have mixed other political agendas in with the proclamations of faith to our detriment.
In acknowledging that, we still should be entitled to hold and practice our faith in the public square.
I fear those days are soon to be gone.
As in the days of the churches in Revelation, the beast will take your jobs and livelihood for standing…
How do we respond?
