Thousands rally at U.S. Capitol against gay marriage
Cheryl Rupp held a homemade sign declaring â€śFREEDOM IS Given By GOD NOT by Govt.â€ť and the chant â€śone man, one womanâ€ť rang out on the Capitol lawn Thursday (June 19) as several thousand marchers rallied to show their support for traditional marriage.
Rupp, 65, from Altoona, Pa., has been married for 43 years and says she looks to her Bible for advice. The Bible, she says, is clear: Marriage is only for one man and one woman.
â€śItâ€™s biblically correct,â€ť she said, â€śnot politically correct.â€ť
Let's not just sit there and complain, but lets be in prayer for our leaders and those in the LGBT community. Let us speak boldly of our God and live holy and distinct lives through the work and might of Jesus Christ.
The Lord's hands are not tied, but the souls of the spiritually deaf are bound to sinful desires and the will of their Father the devil.
These are the times in which those who are truly Christ's will shine bright! For it is in the midst of the dark expanse that the stars shine brightest! May we shine bright for our God and Savior Jesus Christ to whom all glory and honor belong!
Right Mike. Hate crime legislation is nothing but thought control; having nothing to do with the violence aspect, but rather, forcing perceived tolerance by forbidding any and all to speak out about unspeakable acts. Hate crime legislation might sound good at first glance, but it's about silencing the critics...nothing more.

No one who values freedom would ever support anti-American thought crime legislation, which is all "hate crime legislation" is.
So glad people are still speaking out publically re the sin of homosexuality. Pastors need to preach against it openly also. The fear of man is being promoted by Satan as a means to put a cloak of darkness over the light. May we Christians, speak the truth boldly and in love.
It is time for the Church to stop acting like a bunch a sissies more concerned with protecting their tax exempt status, and push for the impeachment of Obama for treason, disloyalty, and crimes against humanity. Call your congressmen and demand action! Do what is right for America and the world.
Whether or not the church has failed on the issue of divorce (and to a degree it has) sodomite marriage still needs to be opposed. Divorce in the body of Christ may be a cancer, but you don't cure cancer in the physical body by injecting the body with AIDS. You cut the cancer out. Pastors need to preach against divorce hard. They need to discourage divorce. They need to be in prayer for their congregations. Believers themselves need to be in the word and prayer daily. A lot of repentance is in order as far as divorce goes, but that does not mean that because the body of Christ has wrongly allowed divorce that we shouldn't oppose this Satanic agenda everywhere it is found. Had the body done that with divorce, maybe we wouldn't be having this part of the discussion. Another thing to keep in mind is that with divorce, children are the tragic victims. In the area of the sodomite agenda, they are the sought after prey. Please keep that in mind before deciding that our failure as a body in one area of life might mean we look like hypocrites if we speak out in another similar area.
Taylor, regarding the divorce rate among Christians and unbelievers being the same is not accurate. There are those who claim Christianity, but in fact are not due to either following false religions or claiming to be Christian by "name" only. "Christians" can make marriage a mockery, but God does not. Church leadership can compromise, God does not. "Action speak louder than words", Jesus did that on the Cross. Follow Jesus, not mankind. True, Paul said to follow his example, but only because Paul followed His example.
I am certainly not opposed to speaking out against specific sins. But it does little good to proclaim that marriage is a sacred gift from God who only unites men with women in Holy Matrimony when the divorce rate among Christians is the same as unbelievers. Really, it's a mockery. Church leadership should never have compromised as now we seem to have lost the basic argument.
By the same token, I don't really believe in the sanctity of life if I were to abort a child when inconvenienced by an unplanned pregnancy. Do we see the connection?

Too true, Dave.
There is much "holy" speaking in the "holy huddles" about the awful state of the world, and sin going rampant, but ask for volunteers to join you in taking biblical truths out into the world, where the ignorant are who need to hear them, and you'll meet with a blank stare. Of course sin will increase, because the majority of people do not know what sin is - the transgression of the law. And how will they know except a preacher tells them? And how will they get saved except someone tells them how to get saved?
IMHO we the church need to begin all over, with the "revival" text as a priority: "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves....."
Your argument is fallacious... It's true that homosexuality and divorce are both sinful but that still doesn't negate the fact that there's a homosexual agenda sweeping across our nation and beyond. It may be true that divorce is high, but divorced heterosexual couples don't have political campaigns to silence Christianity and the Gospel. Divorced couples aren't suing business owners and having them put out business just for speaking out against divorce. They're not changing the laws to create hate speech violations, or having large parades all accross the country celebrating divorce. Right now in the Uk, Canada and other countries you can face prison time for saying homosexuality is a sin, but you can speak out against divorce as being a sin and there's no consequences. The problem is that too many people today are so afraid so say anything, they turn on those who actually do speak the truth, and "complain" against those who are speaking out against the homosexual agenda.
Sad to see that there were only 1000's. Better than less, of course, but wouldn't it be great for born again Christians to really unite as a family and become a powerhouse to be reckoned with. Look at what the sodomites have accomplished with such a small group (but growing). The only time Christians are taken seriously and catered to (with the usual lies everyone believes) is during elections.
Years ago "Christian" married couples themselves began to destroy the sanctity of marriage when they started to divorce each other as their pastors looked the other way. Now they complain when the sodomites take it to the next level.
Either we believe in one man, one woman, for life, or we don't truly believe in the sanctity of marriage. Anything different is either sodomy, polygamy or some other arrangement against God's will.
