Less then one hundred years ago a “civilized” country much like ours was overrun by fascism. Millions of people were exterminated. Who would have thought that could have ever happened? During that same time period we rounded up thousands of our own citizens and put them in to internment camps. Who would have thought that could have ever happened?
There are many people in this country today who would love to see homosexuals done away with. Even as a child I heard people say about gay men, “We should just round them all up and put them on an island.” I heard this from “good Christian people.” They might have been exaggerating, but the sentiment was sill there.
Things are not guaranteed to get better for us. As a matter of fact I truly believe its going to get worse before it gets better. I can’t wait for everyone to read Mel’s new book when it comes out. I have been very luck to be allowed to read the first few chapters. It is eye-opening to the reality of the state of Christianity and our nation.
