Newsweek, in an article which may be found here, is actually trying to make a religious case for same-sex "marriage." Meanwhile, the article I submitted to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette on the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts and how it did violence to the common good, which may be found here, will never see the light of day. Mr. George French, the Editor of the Editorial section of the T & G, hasn't even responded to my queries. I'll live with it. I'm not wrapped up in myself. I'm just not that important in the grand scheme of things. And I never will be (even though I am important to Jesus).
It only serves to highlight the fact that newspapers such as the Telegram & Gazette are not really interested in a free and open exchange of ideas. Indeed, orthodox Christians are not welcome in the marketplace of ideas throughout much of our secularized society. Expect this trend to continue. Christians will be marginalized to the same extent our Jewish brothers and sisters were marginalized by the Third Reich. In the New Order, Christians (at least the orthodox ones who actually accept Divine Revelation and especially the authority of the Magisterium) will be barred from the public forum and contained within a ghetto courtesy of the dictatorship of relativism. Absolute truth will have to be expunged. As well as those who adhere to it.
In the Gospel of John, chapter fifteen verses 18-27, Jesus explains to us: "If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you. Remember the word I spoke to you, 'No slave is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. And they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin; but as it is they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me also hates my Father. If I had not done works among them that no one else ever did, they would not have sin; but as it is, they have seen and hated both me and my Father. But in order that the word written in their law might be fulfilled, 'They hated me without cause.' "When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning."
