When America’s Founding Fathers gathered in Philadelphia in the Summer of 1787 to write a Constitution for the United States, they were undoubtedly and collectively under the guidance of the Creator, from whom they acknowledged as the grantor of all human rights and the Blessings of Liberty. As they worked tirelessly and with great diligence to hammer out a framework for a government “ of, for and by the people “ the checks and balances, the Federal system of divided government between states and national authority, with three distinct and separate governmental branches, was in large part to prevent dangerous concentration of too much power in the hands of those governing the people by their consent. A dangerous condition the founders were structuring government to prevent was what they termed, the “ Tyranny of the Majority “.
To undertake highly important actions, such as to amend the Constitution, to enact treaties, to impeach and convict the President or other high ranking officials of high crimes, to override a veto, or any action that might have far reaching ramifications or adverse effects on the hard won liberties of the people, the “ checks and balances “ were also designed to make it difficult to fundamental or sweeping changes, simply in rapid response to the momentary popular will of the citizenry “ en masse “. Thus our founders were preventing the emergence of “ Tyranny of the Majority “ to tread upon the rights of the minority.
Some 228 years later, in A.D. 2015 America, our Founding Fathers would undoubtedly be horrified by the unspeakable evils perpetrated in recent history, shredding and desecrating the Republic, its Constitution, its institutions, its Christian base of natural and moral law, and the liberty of its people. They would firmly conclude, however, that it is not the failure of our American Constitution or the framework of our government that is destroying this Republic. Rather, they would conclude that it is the deplorable wickedness of those elected or appointed to high office and dishonored their positions of public trust and discarded the rule of law. In their evil and ruthless attacks, that threaten to destroy the American Republic and thereby destroy the liberty of her people, recent American governments, and the Obama administration most of all, cling to and consolidate power by catering to small groups of unelected, “special interests “.
These unelected, and thus unaccountable “ special interests “ are especially destructive when their purpose is outside the best interests of the American people as a whole. Encouraged and emboldened by the brazen disregard for the Constitution, the Rule of Law, the Bill of Rights, our centuries of rich heritage of Judeo-Christian ethics, morality and English Common Law by the ruthlessly immoral administration in Washington, D.C., Americans from coast to coast in all walks of life are being savagely stripped of their rights and freedoms on a daily basis. While certain rights and freedoms have been stripped away by unconscionable and callous acts of the Democratic majority Congress in 2009-2010, the majority of this new tyranny is the even more callous and evil actions of unelected administrative bureaucrats in Washington, unelected judiciary at the state and federal level, and the unelected, unappointed and unaccountable “ special interest groups “ with agendas clearly destructive of rights and freedoms of the American people. Unlike the “ Tyranny of the Majority “ so rightly feared by our founders more than two centuries ago, this new and terrifying wave of despotic rule is a “ Tyranny of the Minority “ .
Informed Americans are painfully aware of the destructive forces called “ special interest groups “, who, representing tiny but inordinately powerful minorities, have “ chipped away at the base of the Liberty Tree “ to the point that it is in grave danger of being toppled and replaced by dictatorship of the powerful few. One particularly pernicious and ugly special interest is the “ Homosexual Rights Lobby “. Gays and Lesbians in America, recently identified by researchers at the Center for Disease Control as merely 1.6% of the American population, have unleashed, with a barbarian ferocity, a wave of political activism that has morphed from securing basic human rights and decent treatment, to conquering and destroying the freedoms and liberties of the other 98.4% of Americans.
The homosexual activists are engaged in an all-out war on our freedoms of speech, freedom of association, freedom of religion, freedom to raise and educate our children in schools without fear of persecution and indoctrination, freedom to own and operate a business, or even the freedom to hold a job in the private or public sector. The homosexual activists are far from content to have the freedom to conduct their private sexual habits and lifestyle without interference from public or private institutions. This tiny segment of the population is hell-bent on forcing full acceptance, affirmation and even celebration of their homosexuality upon all other Americans who make up 98.4% of the population!
Homosexual activists target private businesses, deliberately seeking out Christians whose beliefs do not permit sanctioning or approving of their lifestyle or in gay marriage, then file lawsuits in the courts of judges favorable to homosexual causes. These judges subsequently rule in favor of the homosexuals, forcing Christian business owners either to violate their religious beliefs or lose their livelihoods. Homosexual activists are working nonstop to identify high profile business leaders who, simply for exercising their freedom of speech or religion, express opposition to the gay lifestyle or gay marriage, and pressure their employers to fire them from the jobs. Homosexual activists are working feverishly to attack and destroy churches and church pastors, simply for exercising their religious freedom to condemn homosexuality as the grievous sin the Bible clearly states it to be. Homosexual activists are demanding that public schools at the local and state level across the nation, include the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender lifestyle as normal, natural and fully acceptable as part of the teaching curriculum – regardless of the beliefs of the parents of the school children.
Other horrifying examples of the homosexual lobby running roughshod over Christians and other social conservatives who oppose gay marriage and the gay lifestyle abound. But the terrifying point of their evil and tyrannical intent has been made clear. A mere 1.6% of the population of America is being permitted, even encouraged by large numbers of political leaders who evidently, are either immoral, indifferent, or cowardly. When this small group of special interests is permitted to destroy traditional marriage, soil with their perversion the upbringing of our children, ferociously attack the independence and Biblical teachings of our churches, savage the moral traditions of schools and other public and private institutions, and endanger the freedom and liberties of 98.4% of Americans, it is nothing less than “ Tyranny of the Minority.
This tyranny can be stopped. The question is, will America stop it? Are the homosexual activists now in charge of our nation’s moral, ethical and religious standards? Are our Constitution and our Bill of Rights now both meaningless? Are America’s Courts and our Halls of Congress now as callously indifferent, and as totalitarian, as our current President and his administration?
If this “ Tyranny of the Minority “ is to be stopped, it must be stopped now. If the President and his personal and political tyranny in support of this homosexual tyranny is not stopped by the U.S. Supreme Court, nor stopped by the United States Congress, then the only remaining alternative is for this tyranny to be stopped by “ We, the People of the United States of America “.
