The Bible tells us... actually Jesus tells us that if you are a follower of His, you will be hated by the world. I've always thought of this as a litmus test. Do you stand out? Are you making a difference? If no one pushes back are you making progress?
A politician (really, that's not a kind name anymore) recently did a drive by on a great man's character. That would be Supreme Justice Anthony Scalia. Why? Because this politician and others, as well as the guy in the White House do not believe in the Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers. Judge Scalia has had the audacity enough to reject cases because they are state issues and responsibilities, not federal ones. Why is this so confusing?
That's the problem. Constitutionalists are now considered extremists. Extremists? We are now labeled. In fact I guess homophobe is one of them. If we want to call names back we can call them constitutionalphobes? (I'll work on that.)
Those who hold office have taken an oath to uphold and protect our founder's wishes. Many have died protecting just that. Now many believe differently. Many believe it should be rewritten to suite the current times. Patriots like Judge Scalia believe it was written for all time. Regardless, the majority in power have broken this oath... their word. They have chosen not to uphold the constitution, but to destroy it.
