“Christians have expressed views that aren’t welcomed by powerful people since the very beginning. At the onset of Christianity, that meant preaching in opposition to the customs of Rome. Many believers met gruesome deaths because of their faithfulness. But whether a society accepts their views or not, Christians are still charged with preaching the Word, and that includes the truth about marriage. Religious freedom is now at risk. As the elites in politics and the media come out in favor of same-sex marriage, they try to silence different viewpoints. Our First Amendment guarantee of religious freedom would be no match for the same-sex marriage revolution. Supporters of same-sex marriage want to place this new right above all others, including the First Amendment freedom of speech we have always enjoyed.” – Phyllis Schlafly, writing for the Eagle Forum.
