Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble:
for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand, Joel 2:1.

A foretaste of the consequences of legalising Sodomite marriage #1
At stake is the conflict between the rights of freedom of conscience and the vociferous lobby for 'sodomite marriage'. No doubt they could have gone elsewhere and had their cake baked but they prey on those who have principles and they seek to close down all opposition to their agenda.
This is what will happen in the United Kingdom if, as it seems likely, the present government gets their way and implements a similar law in England and Wales.
The battles lines for an age old conflict are being redrawn again. There is a long history of battles for religious freedom and liberty, whether it was the days of the Act of Uniformity and the Great Ejection or the days of the Covenanters in Scotland. These freedoms and liberties are being undermined once again and once again Christians will find themselves classed as law breakers because of adherence to the Bible and to conscience. While the state often boasts that it takes no position on moral issues in reality it doing this exact thing. The state seeks to tell a Christian what is lawful and what it not. It matters not whether this is against conscience or not.
Whether it is the Israelites in Egypt or some other time in Church history God eventually hears the cry of His people and will send them deliverance. There are another kingdom in this world, it the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and it will triumph eventually and every knee will be made to bow to before Him. As Andrew Melville once reminded King James sixth of Scotland and first of England: Sirrah, ye are God's silly vassal; there are two kings and two kingdoms in Scotland: there is king James, the head of the commonwealth; and there is Christ Jesus, the king of the Church, whose subject James the Sixth is, and of whose kingdom he is not a king, not a lord, not a head, but a member.
