Surge Summary: A Georgia police officer has been forced to resign for posting a comment on Facebook defending traditional (husband/wife) marriage. Free speech seems to be another casualty of the Sexual Revolution.

A Port Wentworth, Georgia, police officer says he felt forced to resign after standing up for his views on marriage. “Welcome to the Sexual Revolution’s version of 1984,” said Ruth Institute president Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.
The 19-year-old was placed on administrative leave after refusing to remove a Facebook post that said: “Marriage refers to Christ and the church. That’s why there’s no such thing as homosexual marriage.”
“Hooray for this young man who stayed true to his beliefs,” Morse said. “He was persecuted, and ultimately lost his job, for defending his religious values.”
Jacob Kersey was told that his opinion could call into question his objectivity while performing his official duties.
“What nonsense,” Morse said. “His posting didn’t express animus toward any group. He simply stated his opinion on the nature of marriage. Ironically, he was told that he could quote Scripture here, as long as he didn’t comment on the verse.”
“Under the Sexual Revolution, freedom of speech is becoming the relic of a bygone era,” Morse said. “The only thoughts you’re allowed to express are those that don’t challenge Big Brother.”
“There’s increasing pressure to go along with the elite. Last week, a Philadelphia Flyers defenseman received a torrent of abuse for refusing to wear a pro-LGBTQ jersey during the NHL team’s pride night. The player, Ivan Provorov, said he “couldn’t stay true to myself and my religion” if he wore the jersey.
“In America today, you’re free to express any point of view on marriage, homosexuality, abortion or transgenderism, as long as it’s establishment-approved. Otherwise, you’re in for a whole lot of trouble,” Morse said.
“Thank God for these two courageous young men. May their numbers increase.”
