They are using the Declaration as decoration, is what I mean to say. Kind of a verbal red white and blue bunting. They don’t want heavy philosophical issues. They are lost same as all other unbelievers, and believers railing at them about that are missing the gospel point entirely.

Thank you for clarifying. I certainly understand and respect your position, but at some level I think we do need to be vocal.

Many modern Christians have been taught to sit by quietly and be resolutely passive while decay and destruction goes on completely unchallenged. I now believe this to be wrong.

I can be respectful, and even loving, while being forceful that certain things are just not acceptable. I understand that the Sam Adams people may likely not be Christians, however, I feel it is appropriate to note my displeasure with their deceitful action that, in my view, clearly, although perhaps somewhat unintentionally, serves to further leverage people away from the truth of the existence of a Creator.

If no one says anything then this soon becomes accepted as truth and then to oppose it at some later period becomes nearly impossible.

In the course of less than one generation the practice of homosexuality went from an anathema, labeled as deviant and the practice of a psychologically damaged person, to completely acceptable and celebrated, in part, I believe, because the church taught people to be “loving and accepting” and to treat homosexuals as those who once had Leprosy. And now here we are, the homosexuals have taken over and are after our children.

No, I personally am done remaining silent as some form of errant expression of peace and love. I can remain loving while vocally expressing opposition to sin and deceit.
