According to World Net Daily (WND), It was only a few days ago that Franklin Graham, who heads the international Christian ministry Samaritan’s Purse, issued a serious warning about a leftist plan in Congress that purportedly would establish same-sex “marriage” in law. He noted the “deceptively named ‘Respect for Marriage Act'” and said it would create significant problems for Americans. As a result, a letter has been sent by dozens of leaders of the nation’s biggest Christian and conservative organizations to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell asking him to reject the agenda outright.
The letter, from “the heads of national and state organizations leading the effort to protect life, religious liberty, free speech and the family,” pointed out that those who assembled H.R. 8404, the promotion of same-sex “marriage, did much more than just that. “It is a startling expansion of what marriage means – and who may be sued if they disagree – that threatens the freedom of numerous ‘decent and honorable’ Americans of different faiths, creeds, and walks of life who wish to live consistent with their deeply held beliefs,” the letter said. It explained that the warning about attacks on Christians and others over marriage already was included in the opinion that created the “right.”
Those signing the letter included officials for Alliance Defending Freedom, the Heritage Foundation, Family Research Council, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Concerned Women for America, Christian Legal Society, First Liberty Institute, Liberty Counsel and dozens more. Michael P. Farris of the ADF said, “When culture and political institutions fail to respect the institution of marriage and instead promote open aggression against those who believe that marriage is between a man and woman, they not only undermine human flourishing but seriously harm religious freedom. Despite claims from its sponsors, the so-called ‘Respect for Marriage Act’ doesn’t simply codify the Obergefell decision. It forces the federal government to recognize without limit any marriage definitions that a state adopts. It also empowers the government to punish millions of Americans who hold decent and honorable beliefs about marriage—beliefs that have existed since time immemorial—exposing citizens to predatory lawsuits and even endangering the nonprofit status of faith-based organizations.”
Evangelist Graham is requesting that we, as God’s people, pray for God’s intervention as this bill moves on to the Senate? “Only He can save us from our evil and rebellious ways”, he said. God’s Word says that marriage is to be between one man and one woman—not two men, not two women. Let us respond to the call for prayer and pray as never before for this bill to be defeated, so as to save our nation from the wrath of God. Amen!
