Today is a dark day for religious freedom. The Left’s forces of religious hostility, aided by 12 Republican senators and 39 Republican representatives, advanced what history may ultimately record as one of the greatest assaults on religious freedom in modern history.
These members are yielding to the temporal forces of the culture rather than the transcendent principles of our nation’s constitution.
With their vote in support of this bill, these Republican members of Congress have marked their departure from the U.S. pro-family movement.
For with this vote, they are exacting a price from their pro-family supporters and laying a heavy burden on Christians in the United States (and even worldwide), who will be increasingly marginalized and cast out of ‘proper society.’
Who created the institution of marriage and why? God created marriage for the well-being of children and a well-ordered society. The congressional vote to redefine marriage in federal law puts both at risk. Whether by the Court or by the Congress, truth cannot be altered–nor will our commitment to that truth
