America Is Headed Down a Bleak Path as White House Lights Up In Pride Colors

With the signing of the Respect for Marriage Act, the bipartisan leadership that supported it celebrated by lighting up the White House in LGBTQ Pride Colors.

This was a continuation of the celebration held in June 2015 when the White House was first awash in the rainbow colors celebrating the Supreme Court guaranteeing the constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

Now, it is enshrined in American law in the aftermath of Justice Clarence Thomas’ comments about revisiting Obergefell v. Hodges.

In public defiance of God’s design and order, the President of the United States Joe Biden hailed the passing of the law as an act of love against the hatred in the world.

“This law and the love it defends strike a blow against hate in all its forms,” Biden said. “And that’s why this law matters to every single American.”

The President then tried to paint anti-Semitism and racism in the same light as homophobia and transphobia.

“Racism, antisemitism, homophobia, transphobia, they’re all connected. But the antidote to hate is love.”

The ceremony was filled with government leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Schumer, whose daughter is a lesbian, praised the bill and the activists who helped America get to this point in her history.

“Thanks to the millions out there who spent years pushing for change, and thanks to the dogged work of my colleagues, my grandchild will get to live in a world that respects and honors their mothers’ marriage.”

So, what does this mean for America? Where do citizens who believe that God designed marriage to be between a man and a woman go from here?

There is only one path that America is heading down, and that is the path toward destruction.

Since the removal of prayer in schools, the Ten Commandments no longer displayed within American government facilities and the embracing of abortion, the decline of American culture and morality has been in decline for the decades since these events.

Christians are being told not to be afraid of the government coming after their churches if they decline to host a same-sex wedding. These are the same people that said allowing gay marriage would not lead to the transgender movement. Not only did it lead to just that, but the movement is more aggressive than anyone could have expected.

The same warnings are being said today about pedophilia becoming legal, and people are being called paranoid and conspiracy theorists. Yet there is already a movement growing to label pedophilia a “sexual orientation” and give it the same protection as being gay or transgender.

This strategy to normalize the brutalization of children starts with renaming it, much like the transgender movement and their “Gender-affirming care” which mutilates young boys and girls leaving them scarred for life. People are no longer called pedophiles in these circles, but “MAPS,” which stands for Minor Attracted PersonS.

These are the results of a society without a Christian influence. Sure, there are spots around the country where people love Jesus and have even had some small revivals breakout. But where is the nation-changing fire?

For revival to take place in a nation that not only allows these acts that are abominable to the Lord, but promotes them, there must be a nationwide wave of repentance. Christians must be willing to get uncomfortable and get out into the world and minister to the populace. Inaction is what got America to where she is now, imagine where Christians-in-action could take it?

But until faith is turned into action, in love, then American citizens can not only expect more of what is occurring within American society, but also worse. {eoa}
