PETITION URGING GOVERNORS, MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND STATE LEGISLATORS TO ENSURE THAT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN AMERICA IS NOT CRUSHED BY RIGID IMPOSITION OF "NON-DISCRIMINATION" LAWS BASED ON SEXUAL BEHAVIOR AND SEXUAL IDENTIFICATION

To: All governors, members of the Congress of the United States, and members of the legislatures of the 50 states:

Whereas, the spectacle of an innocent 21-year-old Christian girl, who, for honestly replying to a TV reporter's hypothetical question and saying her family's pizza parlor wouldn't cater a homosexual wedding, was the recipient of a mountain of obscene abuse and death threats, including threats and incitement to burn down the family's business;

Whereas, dozens of similar cases abound, where Christian business people, just wishing to live true to their faith, are being sued, criminally indicted, prosecuted, fined, forced to violate their deepest morals or close their business, and to undergo forced re-education ("sensitivity training") strikingly reminiscent of communist totalitarian countries like Mao-era China;

Whereas, rigid and inflexible enforcement of the LGBT movement's core legal dogma – namely, that "gay" is the new black – means that well-intentioned, law-abiding Americans who harbor religious reservations about homosexuality or same-sex marriage may well find themselves regarded as comparable to the most detestable racists such as Ku Klux Klansmen and neo-Nazis, and prosecuted and legally driven out of their homes and businesses;

Whereas, the "crisis" over Indiana's "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" (RFRA) – a crisis orchestrated entirely by the left (just as its previous media crisis, "Hands up, don't shoot," which fomented an orgy of racial demonstrations, riots, crime and murder of police officers, was based on something that never happened) – started simply as a good-faith attempt in Indiana, like many other states with similar legislation, to balance the rights of all citizens with the free exercise of religious conscience;

Whereas, America was founded, above all else, on the principle of religious liberty – and the religion on which America was founded was biblical Christianity, the very same faith now being effectively demonized as "intolerant" and, increasingly, illegal;

Whereas, "same-sex marriage," which no country, culture, political establishment, ideology, religion or historical era has ever endorsed, let alone practiced, in the entire history of mankind, is suddenly now an urgent social experiment being forced down the throats of a once-Christian nation by activist judges, tireless gay activists and their enablers and fellow travelers in the news and entertainment media;

Whereas, if current trends continue, within a short time the practice of traditional Christianity – the faith that guided virtually all of America's founding fathers, as well as most major Western leaders for the past 2,000 years – will be rendered effectively illegal, forcing faithful believers underground – just as faithful believers are forced underground in many parts of the world under the cruel dominance of totalitarian ideologies;

Whereas, the growing totalitarianism of the LGBT movement has become so extreme in recent times that courageous voices of ALL political and cultural persuasions are openly condemning it, from those on the right – like Charles Krauthammer (“totalitarian”) and Patrick Buchanan (“the new blacklist”) – to the left, including comedian Bill Maher (“the gay mafia”) – and even well-known “gay” media personalities Andrew Sullivan (“it disgusts me”), radio talker Tammy Bruce ("the gay gestapo”), and gay writer Brandon Ambrosino, who asks in Time magazine: “Why is our go-to political strategy for beating our opponents to silence them?":

SIGN THE PETITION

Therefore, we the undersigned urge America's governors, members of Congress and state legislators to stand strong in the face of a perverse media-led campaign to crush sincere religious expression in America.

By all accounts, the LGBT movement has overreached to the point of embracing naked totalitarianism, fomenting laws that: outlaw counseling help for minors who want to overcome unwanted same-sex attractions; decree that boys and young men must be allowed to use girls' restrooms and locker rooms if they identify with the opposite sex (and vice versa); mandate pro-homosexual indoctrination of children as young as five; integrate open homosexuals into the military; force same-sex marriage on the nation; and now, criminalize Christian businesspeople for simply disapproving of homosexuality or declining to actively participate in same-sex weddings on moral and religious grounds.

To America's leaders: Do you really believe it is good to effectively outlaw practice of the faith that formed the moral and spiritual foundation of our nation from its birth? If not, we urge you to demonstrate some genuine courage in the face of a nationwide campaign to stamp out America's most foundational liberty – freedom of religion – just to eliminate even the most respectful and conscience-driven dissent by Christians who don't want to be forced to participate in activities their faith tells them are immoral and wrong.
