As you surely know by now, “diversity” means only one opinion is allowed.
Case in point: the Department of Justice, an agency of the federal government, paid for by the American people. In pursuit of “diversity,” DOJ personnel are now very strongly advised to be openly supportive of homosexuality. “Live and let live” is no longer an option. From now on it’s “Hooray for gay,” or out you go.
The source of this information is a DOJ departmental memo, a colorful brochure entitled “L.B.G.T. Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers.” You can find a link to it here and elsewhere on the Internet. Hats off to Matt Barber, WorldNetDaily, for breaking the story a few days ago.
As you’ll see, if you read the document, the DOJ has purposely set up a work environment hostile to Bible-faithful Christians and anybody else with a shred of self-respect. DOJ personnel, especially in management, have been drafted as cheerleaders for the march of sodomy. A couple of brief quotes will prove this.
Part 5 of the directive is to “Come Out… by coming at as a ‘straight ally.’ For example: Display a symbol in your office [showing your support for this abomination]… Attend LGBT events.” Yes, make sure you show up at “Gay Pride” parades and “Gay Marriage” rallies, even if it turns your stomach. Guess what will happen to your job if you don’t.
Part 7 exhorts personnel, “Know How to Respond If an Employee Comes Out to You. DON’T judge or remain silent. Silence will be interpreted as disapproval.” And we can’t have any disapproving around here, can we? That wouldn’t be “diversity.”
There’s a lot of direction in here as to how to encourage and kow-tow to homosexuals by saying things you don’t mean and don’t believe. And you’d better say them, because silence will be interpreted as disapproval. You may be thinking Romans Chapter 1, but you’d better be talking “gay is the way” if you know what’s good for you. You can’t even just keep your mouth shut.
One by one, and two by two, our ruling junta in Washington is subverting and corrupting agencies of the federal government, staffing them with their creatures, turning them into the tools of an all-encompassing political agenda aimed at what they like to call a “transformation of America”—the kind of transformation poor Lon Chaney used to suffer in the movies, when he turned into the Wolfman. They are turning a government of the people into a government of selected groups of people; a government by the people into a government by a tiny set of people; and a government for the people into a government for only favored groups of people.
So far we have seen this done to the IRS, the EPA, the military, and now the Dept. of Justice. They have been transformed into operations that favor and assist the president’s political allies, and disable and harass his opposition. As for our once-free press, they have corrupted and enslaved themselves.
Right before our eyes, this regime is stealing our country out from under us. The opposition party on Capitol Hill is afraid to oppose anything, conservatives aren’t conserving anything, the churches aren’t preaching, and the people as a whole resemble nothing so much as a herd of docile, well-fed cattle, oblivious to the meat wagon coming down the road.
You would think there would be outrage. Where is it? What we are seeing here is a careful, incremental, bloodless coup, a la Hugo Chavez. The blood will come later.
This is what we get for peacefully going about our business, trusting that the Constitution that has protected us so far will go on protecting us with no exertions on our part. This is what we get for being compliant and timorous while our God is mocked and His laws trampled by the very people who swear their oaths of office on the Bible.

Of all the evils that beset us, public education stands out. Our public schools and colleges have taught young people to celebrate Kwanzaa and Cinco de Mayo; to put their money (if they have any, after tuition) into socially responsible banks without ever asking what “socially responsible” means, or who defines it; to think tobacco is bad for you but marijuana isn’t; to despise the word of God, but to venerate as oracles movie stars and rockers. It would never in a million years occur to them that “gay” activists, Marxist professors, and tinhorn progressive politicians have no right to tell them what they must think and what they must say. The teachers’ unions have owned their minds, and deadened them, since kindergarten. As long as they have the freedom to fornicate, they’ll think they’re free indeed.
They’ve learned you can be “good without God,” that “communism has a lot of good ideas,” and that “the rich,” whoever they are, “ought to pay their fair share.” They know many things that aren’t true. These are the ones who have voted in the villains who now misgovern us. In fact, given this embarrassment of riches, it’s hard to understand why Obama and Co. feel they have to go to the trouble of subverting the republic. It must be just an instinct.
God will decide whether America will be America, or just the biggest banana republic ever.
Hadn’t we all better pray a good bit harder?
