In recent days, some news out of Houston, TX has reached the national stage, and it has to do with sexuality and religion. Yet again, we find another example of liberal hypocrisy: they want everyone to be tolerant, yet not tolerant of ideas and speech that are in conflict with their own views. Some liberals want people to accept gay marriage rights but liberals don’t want to tolerate the views of biblically orthodox Christians.
In many cases people point to the Constitution to keep the Church and State separate. Atheists, and others want to keep prayer and the Ten Commandments out of schools and courtrooms shouting “separation of Church and State!” However, where are these same self-knighted “Constitution-defenders” when the state invades the church? They protest to keep A (church) out of B (state), yet not B out of A. This is hypocrisy. It is illogical. It is arrogant and absurd. To be fair, I will say that in more recent days during the story’s ongoing development, there have been groups of atheists and secularists protest the actions of the Houston mayor and the city for subpenaing pastors’ sermons, which is appreciated.
Dr. Russell Moore, ERLC, has offers a good word:
The separation of church and state means that we will render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and we will. But the preaching of the church of God does not belong to Caesar, and we will not hand it over to him. Not now. Not ever.
