Proposition 8 calls democracy into question


By jason - Posted on 15 November 2008

It is interesting that the pro-homosexual marriage crowd seems to be calling into question the democratic process.

Students at Illinois State University held a protest at the campus and several people agreed with one students statement.

“The rights of a minority should never be put to a popular vote”

They say a broken clock is right twice a day. This student just happened to surpass most Christian leaders when she stumbled across this truth.

The rights of the minority should never be put to a vote by the majority. Rights don't come from crowds and especially not the majority. Rights come from our Creator.

Most Christian leaders know this but use Democracy as their platform because they are ashamed of the truth or don't believe truth works really well.

Popular opinoin has been on the side of conservative Christianity for much of our nations history and as a result has lulled Christians into embracing a worldview that is not biblical and wrong.

Even worse, many Christians are following Democracy OVER righteousness.

Homosexuality is not a right, in fact it is a wrong. So even when the tide turns here very shortly we need to encourage our leaders to be accountable to God and not to their district.

I am not convinced that democracy is the best system for any nation. The reason is that we have many examples from countries where democracy is also hijacked. Reading our best essays will make it clear for you that a nation needs justice and other necessities no matter they comes from traditional democracy or any other system.
