Born That Way?

God tells us that homosexual behavior in thought word or deed is a sin.  Some try to excuse homosexual behavior by saying that homosexuals are born that way.  It does not matter if homosexuals are born that way or not. 

If pedophiles are born that way does it excuse their behavior?  If pyromaniacs are born that way do we allow them to set fires?  Most men are born to like women, but we require abstinence until marriage to one woman for life.  No society should make it easy for people to act out their sinful behaviors.  We have laws against murder, theft, and in some cases lying and adultery.  These laws and social norms are there to help the weak to see and know how to behave properly.

We are humans and we are responsible for our behavior.  God created humans to do His will, not our own will.  Some of us will have a more difficult time doing God's will than others will have.  It is still our duty to overcome or thorn in the flesh; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

What Standard is the Standard?

The Bible tells us that man and woman were created for each other.   The Biblical standard for marriage is two become one flesh, one man and one woman for life.   Once you drop that standard, what standard do you use? 

If it is okay for two men to marry, why can't two brothers marry each other?  If two brothers can marry why not mother and son, or brother and sister?   If two men can marry each other, why not three men? Or two men and one woman?

If we allow 12 year old girls to have abortions, why not let them get married?   If we allow 12 year old girls to get married, then why not allow 35 year old men to marry 12 year old boys?  Or nation has become sick and we need to return to God or we will fall apart; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Constitution

The Supreme Court says that same sex marriage is a right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.  Where in the Constitution does it say that exactly?  When the Supreme Court decided ObamaCare, they went back to the original intent of the Congress at the time and said the Congress intended to cover as many people as possible so ObamaCare is legal.

In the same sex marriage case they did not do that.  At the time the Constitution, homosexual acts were illegal in every state.  Some states even called for the death penalty for sodomy between consenting adults.  When the 14th Amendment was passed, calling for equal protection under the law, homosexual acts were still illegal in every state in the Union.

The Supreme Court perverted the rule of law, the Constitution and and intent of the framers and Congress by ruling that same sex marriage is not only Constitutional but required to be recognized by the whole nation.  This ruling is typical of a court that sees itself as the maker of laws, not the interpreter of laws; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Same Sex Marriage

The Supreme Court of the United States ruled today that same sex marriage is not only legal, but it must be recognized by every state.  The Supreme Court has overstepped their boundaries, again.  They have created law and rights were no law and no right has existed before.

The people have not voted for same sex marriage.  Few legislatures voted for same sex marriage.  Courts all over the nation have been forcing same sex marriage on the people for years.  The Supreme Court has done what local and regional courts have been doing.

The Congress will respond with several weak attempts to protect religious organizations from having to perform same sex marriage, but President Obama is unlikely to sign them into law.  Even if they do manage to pass and become law, they will only be the law for a few  years until the Supreme Court overturns them again; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Falling Apart at the Seams

While the United States is self destructing with high taxes, high regulation of business, and moral decay, our enemies are busy.  ISIS is still on the march across the Middle East.  Our President wants to limit our response to air strikes, despite the fact that everyone says air strikes alone won't do the job.

In Ukraine the Russian invasion continues as despite several cease fires the fighting has never really stopped.  President Putin to keep the West off balance has begun overflights of areas that have not seen Russian aircraft since the days of the Cold War.  He knows that if he makes everyone in Europe nervous about their own border they may be less likely to defend Ukraine's border.

Iran is on the way to building intercontinental nuclear missiles.  The Obama Administration wants to sign a deal with them so badly that they are willing to accept that as inevitable.  The US has gone from Iran will never get nukes to Iran will get nukes and that's okay.  The United States is falling apart, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Censorship

On Facebook a while back someone wrote that the news should censor people who deny that climate change is caused by human actions or that they don't think that climate change is a critical issue facing the world today.

The science is settled.  There is no reason to continue to discuss the issue, and it's all about the science.  If the science is settled, then why do we need to continue to fund research into climate change?  If global warming is happening and there is no longer a need to discuss it, why should be keep paying for discussions and publications about it?

Liberals used to be for free speech.  Now that liberals seem to control much of the media, it seems they care for free speech only when it suits their agenda.  Don't allow people who support Israel to write articles.  Don't let racists write articles.  Don't let people who deny global warming write articles.  Don't let people post photos of the Confederate flag.  Don't post anything that is sexist.  Don't write anything that offends Islam.  I believe that free markets will eventually determine what is true, right, and beautiful.  Even the free market of ideas; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Biblical Values

The Bible has been the standard of moral behavior for the Western world for nearly 2,000 years.  As the influence of Western nations has grown, that same standard has been picked up all over the world.  Thou shalt not steal.  Thou shalt not bear false witness.

Lying and theft are considered immoral acts.  Murder is an immoral act.  Many cultures did not recognize those acts as immoral until Christian influence was strong enough to overcome their traditions.

In my lifetime, these standards have fallen away.  People steal and others rush to their defense, claiming "fairness" or some other standard, rather than the Biblical standard.  People lie and we are told it was okay, because everyone lies, or that there is no objective truth.  People murder innocent babies in the womb, and we are told it's not murder, because it's the right of the mother to kill her children.  Our great nation needs prayer, and a return to Biblical values; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
