“The church must stand opposed to the new sexual revolution,” says Todd Pruitt, contributor on Mortification of Spin. “We must not pretend that we can afford to ride out the storm. We must ride into the eye of the thing. We do this for the glory of God who is being openly mocked by human creatures supposing themselves to be sovereign. We do this for the sake of sinners who are choosing to imbibe the very poison that is killing them. We do this for the sake of our children who are the primary targets of the new, federally backed revolutionaries.”
Gird your loins, brethren. The Left is out for blood.
My mind boggles over both the swiftness and comprehensiveness of the new sexual revolution. It is a revolution that has as one of its goals the complete overthrow of Scripture’s teaching on the nature of humanity and the sexual boundaries which are vital to human health and flourishing.
Today brought news that the Obama Administration, finding free time between battling international terrorism and record-breaking under employment has issued a decree to our nation’s public schools: Conform or else.

The culture war has been brought into the living rooms of every household. The report from the Obama Administration makes clear that any school which does not comply with the rules of the new sexual revolution will face the retaliation of the Federal Government.
The indispensable Rod Dreher issued the following words last evening: “My government is the enemy of my church and my family. It has come to that. I figured it would one day. But not so soon.”
The implications of the new sexual revolution are much broader than what is happening in our schools. Christians are already being targeted by the state for not agreeing to add their labors and talents to the solemnizing of homosexual weddings. What will surely increase rapidly is the social and economic ostracism of Christians.
