Two thousand years ago, when John the Baptist stood for God’s definition of marriage, he suffered the consequences. You remember the story: When John said to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife,” Herod’s wife, Herodias, had him killed (Mark 6:18-19).
Sound familiar? We’re seeing this unfold in America today. Now let’s connect the dots…
In June of 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized certain homosexual acts. At the time of the ruling, the gay community declared this had nothing to do with redefining marriage—only the right to privacy.
Fast-forward to 2015, the Supreme Court has legalized “same-sex marriage,” in opposition to the people in 31 states who voted to protect God’s design for marriage.
Now, one year later, true privacy is thrown to the wind as the homosexual lobby promotes the “right” of transgender persons to use bathrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities based on their gender identity—regardless of the safety and privacy of women and children.
It’s not difficult to connect the dots . . . deny God’s plan for marriage, human sexuality and even the reality of male and female or you will pay.
Family Policy Alliance and our nearly 40 state-based allies will always stand for God’s design and advocate for laws that allow all Americans to exercise their conscience. Will you “stand firm and take action” (Dan. 11:32b, ESV) with Family Policy Alliance and millions of pro-family Americans who believe the same way you do?
