Tyrants Of Tolerance - Culture War

The culture war in American usage is a metaphor used to claim that political conflict is based on sets of conflicting cultural values. The term frequently implies a conflict between those values considered traditionalist or conservative and those considered progressive or liberal. ~ Wikepedia

ARRA News Service -- by Gary Bauer: Jerry Buell is a history teacher in Mount Dora, Florida. Buell has taught in the public schools for more than two decades. According to administrators he has a "spotless record." In fact, he was "Teacher of the Year" last year at Mount Dora High School.

Yet Buell has been suspended and is fighting for his job pending an ethics investigation. His offense: Writing a Facebook post critical of same-sex "marriage." By the way, in 2008, 62% of Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

What happened to Buell is not an isolated incident. It is happening all over the Western world as homosexuality becomes more widely accepted. The movement that wore the mantle of tolerance is showing that it and its supporters are among the most intolerant. They not only want marriage to be redefined, they want it to be virtually illegal to express views that reflect traditional religious teaching.

Years ago, Dr. James Dobson and I co-wrote a book called "Children At Risk." We warned then that the culture war was real and only one side could prevail. Christians who continue to insist that same-sex "marriage" won't affect them are sleepwalking. It will impact what your children are taught in the public schools. Religious liberty is at stake.

Moreover, your job may well be risk. Major corporations and leading law firms pride themselves on their "tolerance" and diversity, when in fact they are anything but. Fail to toe the liberal line and you can lose your job. Just ask Dr. Frank Turek or Jerry Buell.

Men and women of faith cannot sit on the sidelines while the culture war rages on. Homosexuality is out of the closet and the tyrants of tolerance are trying to force anyone who believes in traditional values into the closet.
