Rod Dreher, writing for Time.com, echoes the four US Justices who dissented against legalizing homosexual “marriage”. He predicts the beginning of open persecution of orthodox Christians. The safe refuge for those who hold to traditional values, he says, is to find ways to preserve them in community. Basically, to form a counterculture.
Excerpt: “For one, we have to accept that we really are living in a culturally post-Christian nation. The fundamental norms Christians have long been able to depend on no longer exist. To be frank, the court majority may impose on the rest of the nation a view widely shared by elites, but it is also a view shared by a majority of Americans. There will be no widespread popular resistance to Obergefell. This is the new normal.
For another, LGBT activists and their fellow travelers really will be coming after social conservatives. The Supreme Court has now, in constitutional doctrine, said that homosexuality is equivalent to race. The next goal of activists will be a long-term campaign to remove tax-exempt status from dissenting religious institutions.”
