In Autauga County, Alabama, Rev. Anne Susan DiPrizio was arrested for carrying out her duties as a Unitarian minister. And not one champion of the so-called “religious liberty” movement has said a word.
Not one word
And that is where the lie of that movement is exposed. It isn’t about “religious liberty”. It’s about “religious restriction”. It is about making sure that the law of the land reflects evangelical Christian orthodoxy and nothing else.
If your denomination doesn’t believe what the evangelical Christians believe, YOU ARE NOT FREE to act according to the tenets of your Christianity. You must act according to the tenets of evangelical Christianity, in this new world.
Evangelical Christians dictate to the Government and the Government dictates to the Churches what they must believe and how they must act. Rev. DiPrizio found out what happens when you act according to your faith and not someone elses.
That is the world the “religious liberty” movement is trying to build
Their success is one more step on the road to a theocracy. A theocracy run by people that believe the Earth is only 6,000 – 10,000 years old. We simply can’t afford to be led by stupid people.
Anyone that makes a “religious liberty” argument against governmental recognition of same-sex marriages is either a liar or a moron. It’s up to you to figure out which.
