Christians Did Not Lose in Battle to Serve Gays and Lesbians, Libertarians Lost

Contrary to popular opinion, the laws attempted and retracted in Indiana and Arkansas to allow Christians to refuse service to gays and lesbians, were failures of the Libertarian movement. The Libertarians have sought the ability of people to discriminate in the public marketplace. They oppose the 1964 Civil Rights Act on the same grounds.

Regarding Christian teaching, most nominal Christians attempt to be tolerant, kind, helpful, even to those who don't believe the way they do. It is the Libertarian who worships self interest, that wants to be intolerant. The outcry against the discriminatory laws rolled back in Indiana and Arkansas are a major defeat for the Libertarians, who, quite frankly, should be ashamed of themselves, only they don't believe in shame.

And if the law of the land tells you to serve gays and lesbians, how does that compromise your religious values? Doesn't the Bible tell us to obey the law of the land?

I have always believed you cannot be a Libertarian and a Christian at the same time. 

The Libertarians are like barnacles at the pier. They cannot let go of their perversity. They are highly perverse individuals, who want to exclude. They have backing of eugenics, as you exclude the poor, lower their numbers, and the new breed of Libertarian, Rand Paul and Mark Levin, want to make war to lower the population as well. That is not the historical libertarian position on war.

Anyway, I digress. Here is the deal, if you obey the law of the land as a business owner, even if you disagree with the people you are serving, you are obeying God. No one is trying to take away your ability to voluntarily associate with whoever you want away from your business duties.

But from a Christian perspective, and my perspective, all races and people are potential Christians. I happen to believe it is a function of God's election, not free will. But that is for another time. The Apostle Paul said, there is one new man in Christ. So that includes potential Christians from every race and ethnic group.

Christians have a universal or near universal opinion on whether the gay lifestyle is right or wrong, and to them it is wrong. However, tolerance and caring for the person is the issue here. Christians can remember that, and understand that the defeat of these laws is not a defeat of Christian beliefs.

It is a defeat of the Libertarian view of the world. It is a setback, hopefully, a fatal one, for Libertarian exclusionary thought affecting the public marketplace.

I urge everyone to read my ebook (also in audiobook form) about Libertarianism. It will give you a handle on the deep and dark issues that make up the underbelly of a philosophy that looks nice on the surface, but is quite disturbing and evil below that surface.
