ANALYSIS

(LifeSiteNews) – Last week, in one of the darkest moments of his abysmal presidency, Joe Biden made it clearer than ever: The Democratic Party is coming for Christians and anyone else who contradicts the left’s radical abortion and LGBT agendas.

In a primetime speech on Thursday at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, Biden doubled down on Democrats’ latest attack line, declaring his political opponents an intolerable “threat” to America.

“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,” Biden declared, surrounded by Marines in front of a blood-red background, weeks after his administration raided the home of his top rival. “MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people,” Biden continued, adding that “they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.”

He has already repeated the same attacks at subsequent events, including in a speech on behalf of socialist Wisconsin Democrat Senate candidate Mandela Barnes.

Biden’s accusations, which grossly mischaracterize and smear millions of good Americans, are ridiculous for many reasons: Liberals actually detest the Constitution, as demonstrated by a New York Times op-ed days ago; the Biden regime itself routinely violates federal law and was just caught colluding with social media companies to censor unfavorable content; Democrats for years flouted the “will of the people” by sabotaging the Trump presidency and baselessly undermining it with conspiracy theories; and, in an effort to boost their midterm chances, Democrats spent $46 million this year promoting the same Trump-backed candidates whom Biden now condemns as deadly “extremists.”

The claim that so-called “MAGA Republicans” “fan the flames of political violence” is Biden’s most outrageous, as two years ago, leftists – not Trump backers – unleashed the worst wave of political violence America has seen in generations. In the summer of 2020, hundreds of riots linked to the Black Lives Matter movement destroyed billions of dollars of property, injured thousands of police officers, torched government buildings across the country, and took dozens of lives. The historic violence, moreover, had the explicit backing of the liberal media and financial help from top Democrats, including now-Vice President Kamala Harris.

The non-insurrection at the Capitol on January 6 doesn’t come close to our seemingly forgotten summer from hell or the pro-abortion terrorism earlier this year that culminated with an assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh. If Democrats want to take on “political violence in America,” they need to start with their terroristic base.

Democrats’ war on Christians

But the most striking moment of Biden’s Thursday speech was when he explained his definition of the so-called “MAGA Republicans” who allegedly threaten America’s “very soul.”

“MAGA forces,” he declared, “are determined to take this country backwards — backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.” The White House has previously affirmed that Biden’s “MAGA” label applies to pro-lifers, as well as people who oppose sexually graphic books in kids’ schools.

In other words, the Biden administration and the Democrats are declaring war not only on Trump and his supporters but on conservative Christians, the entire pro-life and pro-family movements, and apparently everyone else who holds traditional religious beliefs or even mainstream views at odds with liberals’ increasingly radical, repulsive “values.” Notably, Biden’s definition of “MAGA forces” applies in a particular way to faithful Catholics, one of few groups that still rejects contraception.

The Biden regime’s open assault on Christians and conservatives underscores what’s at stake if Democrats win the November midterms and give the administration the votes it needs to pass its full legislative agenda through Congress.

Since taking office, Biden and his goons have launched horrific attacks on religious liberty. In less than two years, they’ve repeatedly tried to coerce Christian medical professionals to perform “sex change” surgeries, force religious health plans to pay for abortions and “gender transitions” or face crippling lawsuits, and make faith-based schools embrace gender ideology or lose lunch funding. They’ve even taken Catholic nuns to court to defend Biden’s transgender surgery mandate.

But if Democrats keep the House and expand their Senate majority, the war on on our most essential rights – the rights to love and serve God – will get exponentially worse.

Senate Democrats have promised to repeal the filibuster if they gain just two more seats and pass a slate of extreme, anti-Christian bills, including the Biden-endorsed Equality Act, which would carve out federal religious freedom protections to strip doctors of their conscience rights, open up employers to lawsuits for using the “wrong pronouns,” outlaw Christian hiring practices, and entrench LGBT ideology in religious education.

Along with the Equality Act, several other grave threats to religious liberty and Christian values would likely sail through a filibuster-free Democratic Congress:

  • The Women’s Health Protection Act, which would wipe out virtually all restrictions on abortion in America, invalidating hundreds of state laws, including recent total and near-total bans, and codify a federal “right” to abortion up to birth.
  • The Global Respect Act, which would empower the Biden White House to sanction foreign citizens deemed to have violated the “human rights” of “LGBTQI” people.
  • Biden’s original Build Back Better package, which included a ban on “discrimination” based on “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” in religious child care and hundreds of millions of dollars for woke LGBT projects.
  • The Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act and other legislation that could be used to track and punish Americans who refuse mandated, abortion-tainted vaccines.
  • And to top it all off, the For the People Act, which would institutionalize mail-in voting without photo ID and other left-wing election “reforms,” like drop boxes and ballot harvesting, ensuring a Democratic deadlock on America’s future.

The Respect for Marriage Act that Senate Democrats are expected to bring up for a vote before the midterms – and which may pass with the support of liberal Republicans – would be another weapon at the administration’s disposal to terrorize religious Americans and even strip churches of their tax-exempt status.

We need YOU to be a voice for natural marriage and the constitutional freedom of individual states by SIGNING and SHARING this petition calling on Republican U.S. Senators to oppose the deceitfully named "Respect for Marriage Act!"

Leftist members of Congress have, once again, opted to ignore the myriad of issues facing our country — be it the border crisis, gas prices, inflation, crime, and more — to instead virtue-signal by introducing their radical new bill, the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act," which, among other things, would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.

And with the radical left continuing its attempts to redefine words, people, and events to better suit their agenda and advance their political narratives, it should come as no surprise that their latest target happens to be natural marriage.

But marriage is not a political tool for the left to manipulate and destroy; it is the key building block of our society, and the primary basis for the safe, responsible upbringing of our children.

Republican members of the U.S. Senate still have a chance to defend natural marriage by stopping this bill from becoming law, but we need to let them know that the American people oppose the left's seemingly never-ending efforts to degrade the sanctity of marriage.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to Republican members of the U.S. Senate, insisting that they vote against the "Respect for Marriage Act" when it comes before them for any form of vote.
 


The legislation in question, formally filed as H.R.8404 and sponsored by liberal New York Congressman Jerry Nadler, would codify same-sex marriage into federal law, effectively forcing states to recognize any marriage performed in another state regardless of laws on their own books.

It would also fully repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which was signed by President Clinton back in 1996 and formally defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman under federal law.

With the fall of Roe v. Wade back in June, the left's paranoia about losing ground when it comes to their radical social and political agenda has reached a fever pitch, resulting in the ongoing push for the "Respect for Marriage Act," which, if we don't act soon, may well become law...

TIME IS RUNNING OUT: With a 50-50 Senate, the left needs just TEN Republican members to bow to pressure: the mainstream media, Big Tech, Hollywood, and the university system are all fighting against us. With so much pressure against conservatives, we need you to send these Senators a powerful message demanding that they stand strong against the left.

That's why we need your help now.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to Republican U.S. Senators across the country, urging them to stand against the left's attempts to reinvent marriage by opposing the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act" when it comes before them for a vote.

Protect natural marriage! Protect the freedoms of individual states!

Put Republican U.S. Senators on notice and let them know that you're watching closely how they vote on the "Respect for Marriage Act."

Thank you!

Though the Democrats paint themselves as moderates, they aim at nothing less than a fundamental transformation of America – similar to the Bolshevik or French Revolutions – that involves purging Christianity from public life, abolishing religious and parental rights as we know them, and turning America into a far-left bastion of LGBT radicalism and unlimited abortion.

In these ways, Biden and his forces, not “MAGA Republicans,” are the true threats to the Constitution and “the very foundations of our republic,” built as it is upon traditional Christian principles. It’s the proudly diabolic Democratic Party that threatens the soul of this nation.

Thankfully, the battle for America is winnable. After putting Americans through almost two years of hell, Democrats are in a weak position, and fears of a Republican collapse are exaggerated. More importantly, God is with us: The defeat of Roe v. Wade on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is an undeniable sign of His Providence at work.

Through our prayers and votes in November, we can still avert catastrophe and save this country and our freedoms from Democrats’ reign of terror.
