Nothing is politically right that is morally wrong(Carved on the ceiling of the Missouri Senate Chamber.)
This letter is provided to encourage the Body of Christ to become the witnesses He has called us to be. Consider the impact the decisions being made by our government will have on you, your family and this nation both temporal and eternal if we do not speak out - bringing His love WITH A COMPASSIONATE ROAR. IF NOT ME WHO? IF NOT NOW WHEN?
Open Letter to Gov Paterson
So you have finally decided to make marriage a civil right. Who died and made you God? Perhaps you agree with our President that we are no longer a Christian nation? Well, I got good news and bad news for you. The good news is you have been given by your CREATOR the gift of free will and can make choices as YOUR conscience dictates - the bad news - choices have both temporary and eternal consequences. There are still many of us (who also have been given the gift of free will) who hold some truths to be self evident and absolute - that we are endowed by our CREATOR (not the government) with certain inalienable rights. There are many who still believe that there is a God and He will reward good and punish evil. Imagine some think that if you live long enough you WILL die - AND THEN THE JUDGEMENT.
That said, marriage was instituted by God as a covenant relationship between a man and a woman for (imagine) the procreation, education and protection of children (family). It does not take a whole lot of intelligence to figure out that man and woman were created (not evolved) to have sexual relationships with one another. I should know - I have 4 children, 11 grand children and one great grand child. Besides I have a PhD in Medical Biochemistry and actually studied human anatomy-DUH.
I am NOT OPPOSED to each person's right to make choices I am just against the government or anyone else making me, my children, grandchildren and grand grandchild accept, and pay for life choices that are against our basic Christian beliefs. - AND if any consider me homophobic - I AM NOT - perhaps they are Christophobic. Finally, I firmly believe that our nation WILL WEEP what it is sowing if we continue to make and uphold laws which assume there is no God. If the evolutionist really believes we are nothing more than animals with intelligence than where will the line be drawn - could it turn into a time of BIG BROTHER.
But - what do I know? I'm just a 67 year old, 210 lb, right wing, prolife, Bible Thumping, Christ following, radical USMC veteran, and retired pastor who was educated in the Dark Ages when people actually believed and were taught that there were absolute truths like: parental rights, God, Heaven, Hell, and that as citizens of these United States we have the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness without a government guarantee. Imagine believing that our government is of the people, for the people and by the people. Image the stupidity of believing a statement like, "Give me liberty or give me death!" I am sure glad that someone has decided that there is no God and that men should be governed and controlled by men with power, money and influence and great oratory ability. Image if people had real freedom - they might think they have the right to protest - or even have Tea Parties.
