Christian leaders threaten civil disobedience if SCOTUS redefines marriage!
“We will not obey.” That’s the blunt warning a group of prominent religious leaders is sending to the Supreme Court of the United States as they consider same-sex marriage. SCOTUS will announce their decision on June 30th.
“We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross that line. We stand united together in defense of marriage. Make no mistake about our resolve.” Read (and sign) the pledge…..
Over 50,000 clergy sent a warning to the U. S. Supreme Court and any court that crosses the line on the issue of marriage. Their pledge appeared as a full page ad in the Washington Post. The signees are a who’s who of religious leaders including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former U. S. Senator Rick Santorum, National Religious Broadcasters president Jerry Johnson, Pastor John Hagee, and Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse.
They believe America is facing a real Constitutional crisis if the Supreme Court rules adversely from the biblical perspective on same-sex marriage. The institution of marriage is fundamental and it must be defended.
“Christians are being declared the lawbreakers when we are simply living by what we have always believed, and by a set of laws that the culture historically has agreed to,” Dr. James Dobson said. “There’s no doubt that LGBT activists are targeting Christian business owners.”
Religious leaders across the nation agree, “We have no choice. We cannot compromise our clear biblical convictions, our religious convictions.”
To be clear – the men and women who courageously signed this pledge did so knowing the hell storm that could be unleashed on them – and their families. Once same-sex marriage is elevated to the level of protected status – it will transform the face of society and will result in the “beginning of the end of Western Civilization.”
