When Rugby Australia sacked Israel Folau for expressing his Faith, it was a harsh reminder to many Christians that our freedom of speech is under threat. Their confidential settlement was a happy ending to his story, but Bill Meuhlenberg of CultureWatch knows of others who are losing their jobs, and don’t have publicity or expensive lawyers to back them up.
Though Meuhlenberg is neither a prophet, nor the son of a prophet, he sees his role as that of a watchman on the walls, as described in Ezekiel 3 and 33.
Talking to Neil Johnson on Vision’s 20Twenty program, he said he’d warned us about the dangers of enabling the “radical homosexual agenda”.
“We warned, we pleaded, we begged with people, be careful. Do not go down this path. It’s going to be very dangerous indeed if you do.”
“And now things are ratcheting up big time. We have the whole trans thing. We have one person after another losing their jobs simply for saying things like marriage is between a man and a woman, or children deserve a mother and a father. So I hate to say it, we told you so.”
“And now I’m in the same mode. I’m warning people, tougher times will come. Persecution is around the corner, sure, not as bad as what people in China right now are going through, but I can guarantee, it will get worse before it gets better.”
