Now comes the part of the week day minute where FRC tells us how 'immoral', 'harmful', 'ungodly' we are

by Jeremy Hooper

FRCAnd now, Washington's largest special interest group dedicated to the so-called "values issues" within our shared public policy will remind you that their interpretation of God shut out any and all civil debate long, long ago:

- May Congress stand up to the Presdent [sic] to uphold the law. May the Supreme Court support them. May God help the American people rise up to reject the President's illegal behavior and his defacto [sic] support for immoral and harmful sexual behavior masquerading as "marriage" (Gen 1:27; 2Ch 26:16-21; Ps 149:5-9; Is 60:1; Dan 3:12; Mt 16:19; 18:18; Heb 13:4).

Our Founding Fathers never imagined the ungodly excesses we now face. We must arise as men and women of God to turn the tide, beginning with prayer. Thank you for praying!

Prayer Team [FRC]

"Thank you for praying." It's just that simple. Cruelly condemn people who were born differently than you, accuse a President from the opposition party of acting in both an illegal and ungodly fashion, and seal it all with an "Amen." Pat self on back, rest easily for another day.

Self-satisfied drive-thru morality that would be totally fine, if confined to personal worship, houses of prayer, or even public evangelism. But that's not what FRC wants. By design, FRC and its lobbying arm (FRC Action) hope to push this wholly church-based rationale into state and federal constitutions, or at least elected officials' interpretation of the same. That's not an exercise in religious freedom: It's boundary-busting overreaching that truly threatens our shared civil governance.

Preying? No thanks, I'm good.
