(OPINION) – PNW – For more than 15 years, I have been saying that those who came out of the closet would want to put us in the closet, meaning that gay activists calling for “equality” and “tolerance” would want to silence dissenting voices. About 10 years ago, a Christian attorney said to me, “Mike, take that one step farther.
Those who were once put in jail will want to put us in jail.” When I repeated his comment on Christian TV, I was widely ridiculed by the left. “No one wants to put people like you in jail!” So No One Wants to Put People Like Us in Jail? That tune quickly changed when, in 2015 Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky, was jailed for refusing to follow a court order and issue a marriage certificate for a same-sex couple.
Many on the left applauded her arrest, thrilled that she was in jail and hoping she would not get out anytime soon. And on social media, comments were completely unhinged, like this one: “Kim Davis, by Virtue of defying the Constitution and the Supreme Court, is NO BETTER than those men who conceived, executed, and plotted those attacks on the World Trade Center and the pentagon on September 11.
Granted, there haven’t been any lives lost in the wake of Mrs. Davis’ shenanigans, the ideology of using her religious beliefs as justification to defile the Supreme Court and the Constitution make her a religious terrorist along the order of Osama bin Laden and ISIS.” Would stating that there are only two sexes cross that line?
Would denying the term “marriage” to a same-sex union cross that line? “But,” someone might say, “the arrest of Kim Davis proves you’re exaggerating your point. She refused a direct order from a judge, and still, she only spent a few days in jail. Don’t make a martyr out of her or give the false impression that this is an everyday affair.” Actually, I could multiply other examples, not just from America but from other countries as well, like the case of a father whom I met last year in Canada.
