African-American Religious Leaders Ramp Up Campaign Against Marriage Equality
With an expected vote on same-sex marriage in Springfield next week, African-American clergy members campaigning against the issue are threatening to unseat lawmakers who vote in favor, reports WBBMâ€™s Mike Krauser.
Bishop Larry Trotter, of Sweet Holy Spirit Church in Chicago, is vowing that there will be consequences for those lawmakers who support same sex marriage.
â€śI think that they will feel the crunch. I think that they cannot take for granted that they can come to the church; and get the churchâ€™s sanction, and votes, and signatures; and then go to Springfield, and donâ€™t speak what the people want them to speak. And so now, if thatâ€™s how we have to be heard, we will be heard,â€ť Trotter said....
Matthew 19 3 And some Pharisees came to Him, testing Him, and saying, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause at all?" 4 And He answered and said, "Have you not read, that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, 5 and said, 'FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE; AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH'? 6 "Consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."---NASB
