Christian radio host Matt Barber said Monday the Supreme Court's recent decisions in favor of marriage equality have paved the way for societal discrimination against Christians.

This ...Jesus for dollars extremist ...needs to put some serious thought into finding at least some basic common sense for statters...

THing is, religion is a choice ......not something that government mandates for anyone,nor are 'they' governed by the peoples laws other than their tax status. Not to forget that 'religion shall not influence government'.
Everyone doesn't have to follow any one religions beliefs..so no one has descriminated against Christians as long as they too are allowed to marry...Not allowing marriage equality,now that's discrimination...

If he, Matt Barber, wants to believe what he says, that is his right to do so.
and the followers of that belief can do so.

Just do not cram your beliefs down my throat or anyone else's throat who do not agree with you.

I had to shake my head on "Caesar" remark. Now that name is coming into the picture. lol.

Jae said it right: "Not allowing marriage equality,now that's discrimination... "

Ty, Carrie.

Its already starting to happen, Barber told co-host Mat Staver. By laying the groundwork now for the widespread recognition of so-called same sex marriage as a fundamental constitutional right, something that is absurd on its face, the court has now opened the floodgates for prosecution to occur.

Now there is a fool for the ages. And really not a fan of Caesar apparently. I wonder why, in the 12 states that are now allowing (NOT MANDATING) gay marriage, we have not all been turned into pillars of salt? Or had hell fire reign down on us from heaven? Maybe God isn't as incensed about this nonsense as Barber is. Maybe She has bit deeper love for all of Her children than does this man and his kind. Nowhere in that decision was anything EVER said indicating that ANY religion had to marry anyone. There are some enlightened religions that will, yes, but most will be civil marriages performed by judges. No church has to do anything, they simply are no longer allowed to have THEIR personal opinion about marriage codified into law without challenge. No harm has been done anyone, no one has been forced to perform a marriage he, almost certainly he, disagrees with theocratically, nor will they. No one has been persecuted, but for Mr. Barber who apparently sees monsters under every bed, no one will be. All people are now free to exercise their God given right to free will. He forgot to mention that part. That we were created with free will and apparently expected to use it, else why bother? Free will is NOT letting some buffoon in a coat and tie tell you who you may or may not love and marry. No, I'm not gay. But I am a strong believer in love. I wish Barber and his kind were too. Some day, perhaps, the scales will lift from their eyes, until that day, well, they'll continue to make a fine living telling other people what to believe, think, say and do. But not me.

The devil also quotes the scriptures, only to make a mishmash like Barber did. The question that Jesus answered was about taxes; whether Jews should pay taxes tot he Romans. That kind of slippery, sliding logic that Barber uses is typical of Schizophrenic people and also religious fanatics like he seems to be.
If one cannot follow the logic even after a sincere effort, then it isn't because one is dumb. It's because the other party is crazy.

Oh, Mr. Barber, why must you speak when you have nothing to say?

Apparently Mr. Barber cannot comprehend "disagreement" or even "diversity" without "persecution" being a consequence. He has been a persecutor, and now fears to be a persecutee. I would say it must be sad to live in such a small, crippled brain, except that his brain is so small and crippled that he can't possibly comprehend the sadness of it.

Barber and his ilk, are simply paranoid, and dumber than the proverbial bag of hammers!
They go around trying to tell EVERYONE else how to live their lives, and when people push back at that, they yell that the rest of the people hate Christ!." No, what people hate is the incessant proselytiizing , and attempts to get a Theocracy going, based on their fairy tale.

It's no much persecution against Christians as it opposition to many of the hateful mindsets and opinions they hold that they try to validate under the guise of pious Christianity.

Noted. Apparently we are now listening/reading to what the last "squeaky wheels" are going to be spouting until they are a tiny puddle of nonsensical words. I prefer to ignore them.
