There is a battle of law systems, a battle of "rights" going on. A Colorado judge declared sexual rights trumping religious rights, fining a baker for refusing to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony. The clergy housing tax exemption is on the chopping block now, and so is public prayer in legislative meetings. Either pastors will engage the battle, or they will subject themselves to more persecution in the years to come. Kevin Swanson points out that the "two-kingdom" theology paves the way for the persecution of the church.
