Religious Conservative Leaders Strike Back Against ‘Gay Agenda’

gay pride paradeSome of the top names in Christian ministry – including the National Religious Broadcasters, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the Chuck Colson Center, Albert Mohler and Charles Stanley – are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to protect marriage as God defined it.

In a brief filed in the Obergefell v. Hodges case, the leaders ask the high court to affirm the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision that residents of Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee can define marriage for themselves.

The 6th Circuit ruling conflicts with several other appeals court decisions in which federal judges defined marriage for states.

The brief was filed by the Liberty Institute on behalf of the National Religious Broadcasters, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Samaritan’s Purse, In Touch Ministries, Pathway to Victory, The Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, Dallas Theological Seminary, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Daniel L. Akin, Mark L. Bailey, Francis J. Beckwith, Robert A.J. Gagnon, Robert Jeffress, Byron R. Johnson, Eric Metaxas, Albert Mohler Jr., Charles F. Stanley, John Stonestreet and Owen Strachan.

“In reaching its decision, this court should reaffirm that the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment protects religious dissenters who disagree with state-recognized same-sex marriage and to reaffirm the importance of free debate and free inquiry in this democratic republic,” the brief states.

  • As for as GOD states what was a sin in the bigending will still be a sin in the end,and there’s no man made law that can ever change that. May christans live right,and GOD bless Amercia

    STOP THE CONSTITUTION ATTACKS!!!
    OUR SIMPLE SUPREME CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS ARE NOT NEGOTABLE! THEY’RE ENFORCEABLE in every district in the USA! “Anything to the contrary notwithstanding” protects victims and punishes criminals (Article 6)! EVERY US judge and official is oath/duty bound to support and defend the Constitution as ratified and documented, against ANY violator or failure to protect it, regardless of rank or status!! FORCE THEM TO ACT!
    All legislative powers (laws) are vested in congress (Article 1-1). The sole Amendment 1 command “Congress shall make no law” is absolute! It applies to religion & free exercise thereof, and freedoms of speech, press…”! Amendment 14-1 “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens…” reinforces it! Amendment 13 “Neither slavery nor INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE… SHALL EXIST WITHIN THE USA”! Amendment 7 “guarantees” civil jury trial determining damages! One can’t count today’s Constitutional attacks.
    Article III Section 3 treason (betraying oath/duty) is levying war (using “government” armed law enforcers against the Constitution/country/citizens) OR adhering to, aiding, and abetting (Constitution/country) enemies! Organized progressive executives, legislators, and judges, are establishing legislation, regulations, and edicts, BY USING ARMED LAW ENFORCEMENT to enforce prohibited laws in contempt of “shall make no law”, “involuntary servitude”, and every other Constitutional covenant!! They’re engaged in insurrection and rebellion!!

      podunk1:
      a most welcomed and thorough explanation of what is taking place by the judiciary and allowed by congress by abrogating its’ responsible to act as the lawful balance to these misaligned pronouncements from the various court in an ad hoc manner.
      again, thank you for the valuable time to make known the consistent desctruction of the constitution … and we pay their wages!!?? txs, al.

    Progressives have desecrated the time one religious sanctity of marriage by crowning homosexual activity as marriage without ever defining what it is or why it has been a religious and social abomination since time one!

    Challenge SCOTUS by defining homosexuality and its abominable risk! Homosexuality is a frenzied simultaneous engagement of oral, anal, reproductive, respiratory, and other anatomy wherein bodily fluids, diseases, germs, enzymes, and feces are comingled, exposed and transferred between any engaged in the activity. Diseases include AIDS, EBOLA, ECOLI, hepatitis, sexual diseases, and just about any other communicable disease! Engage the CDC and FDA – they must engage seriously, or demand dissolving both agencies as useless!

    If in the laws and the “Eyes” of God, then Yes, it will be protected. If you can find one single word, passage or indication that says that God created man on man or Woman on Women marriage then there can be no issue, Period!

    In my religion a marriage it the union two people who pledge to love one another and to take care of one another for life. So is the court going to protect my religious freedom?

    • Lawrence Lowe

      In the King James bible marriage is defined in many places as the union between man and woman. Same sex coupling is a sin and forbidden. If you choose same sex coupling that’s your business and not the publics however if you try to push your views on children I am one of those who would tar and feather you publicly. LIve your life as you see fit and don’t force it on others. That I can respect, just my opinion.

        A queer by any other name is still a queer. THEY WERE NOT BORN THAT WAY, THEY CHOOSE
        TO LIVE THAT WAY. where would they be if their parents were both queer

      No one including the SCOTUS has or ever will pass a law saying a religious marriage has to allow LGBT weddings. That is up to Religions themselves in the US at least. Civil law affects civil marriages. Stop trying to impose your religious beliefs onto civil matters. By the way SCOTUS has decided thi smatter recently and I really doubt all teh whining wil get them to even visit it again

        God condemns homosexual conduct, it is an OBOMINATION to GOD. Check out what God done to Sodom and Gomorrah were cities mentioned in the Book of Genesis and
        throughout the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament and in deuterocanonical
        Has nothing to do with religon, religon is something you do over and over, like he/she goes to work religiously. Marriage is sanctified by God, but you do not have to be a part of some so called religon. God made the woman Eve for the man Adam, and that is from the begenning man has no business changing it PEROID.!!!!!!!!!!

    • Philip Mckee

      That too me would be a perverted religon. God made man, then made man an helpmeet woman.
      Man and wife. He made Adam and Eve, wasn’t Adam and Steve.

      If one respects God will follow his word(LAW).
