FRC says Pride-hued Empire State Building = 'warning flare'; stops short of questioning Lady Liberty's lesbian tendencies

by Jeremy Hooper

Many of us, both here in New York City and worldwide, saw this night-of-vote image as a promising sign of all that we have achieved:

But for the Family Research Council, for whom the achievement of benign peace for LGBT people is anathema, the reception was slightly different:

People at the Empire State Building said it was a coincidence. Officials explained that it takes hours to change the lights. But there was no mistaking the message Friday night when the highest point in the city lit up like a towering rainbow, its colors blazing across the New York skyline. Like a warning flare, the reds and blues and greens exploded over the city, announcing the arrival of same-sex "marriage" to the world. Overnight, New York had become a beacon in the fight for family--a symbol of people who had lost their way.

When the law goes into effect next month, New York will be the sixth and largest state to shatter the definition of marriage in America.

...
Despite all of the disappointment, God is on the move. Regardless of how things appear, never doubt that He is at work behind the scenes. Rainbow colors may cut through the New York night, but shadows are where you and I are called to shine. The world takes advantage of the darkness, but only the church can set it ablaze. "Arise... for your light has come... See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn." (Isaiah 60:1-3)
A New York State of Blind [FRC]

"Shadows are where you and I are called to shine"? Uhm, mental note: Avoid dark alleys.
