The Assault On Marriage Continues

... taken from the Family Research Council Newsletter ...

The New Jersey high court is known to be both political and liberal. Now it has set itself up as a "super-legislature," mandating what lawmakers can and cannot do. However, with a Democratic majority in control in Trenton, and their charade of opposition intact, make no mistake-they will gladly move to do the court's bidding. Yesterday, Gov. Jon Corzine (D-NJ) said, "I look forward to the legislative process implementing the Court's decision." It's painfully obvious that lawmakers are willing to take their marching orders not from the people but from unelected judges. The court ordered the legislature to act in 180 days, knowing full well that it would take the state far longer to strike back with a constitutional amendment that protects marriage. But strike back it must. As a first line of defense, the state must move forward to amend its constitution. Twenty states have already done so and eight more are prepared to join them November 7. The ruling should serve as a wake-up call for those who believe marriage does not need federal protection. We must have a U.S. constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. That prospect is highly unlikely if the Democrats regain control of Congress. Nancy Pelosi, Howard Dean, and the Democratic National Committee have vowed to fund and fight against marriage amendments on the state level. Imagine what they could do on a national scale, not only to the legislative process but also in its confirmation of judges, who could all wage similar wars on the values we hold dear. On the eve this election, candidates from both parties need to answer: will you stand up for traditional marriage or not?

Traditional, God-sanctioned marriage between a man and a woman is the only way way to keep America
intact as the founders wanted her to be.

... couldn't agree more!

It's time we stop all the concern about "hurting feelings". Hating the sin, but loving the sinner is the way to go.

All of us are in the same boat - ALL SINNERS. We're here, not to judge, but to certainly make our opinions known!
