FRC dedicates entire weekly prayer sheet to praying God stops gay people's marriages

by Jeremy Hooper

When it comes to marital discrimination, pro-discrimination special interest group Family Research Council put itself out there in a major way. If you factor in both extremity of view and level of Washington access, there are few organizations that have talked a nastier game, and to actual people in power, than FRC.

With every one of our wins, the wheels on the FRC's anti-gay bus have come off just a little more. Fifty-state marriage equality, and the psychological impact of that decision, will surely put a huge dent in the organization's reputation. After all, they've been telling folks for years, "just stick with us; we got this." More and more, Americans are learning just how wrong they were, and just how much time and money and resources they forced us all to waste in the name of civil inequality.

In short: FRC is crapping bricks at the thought of the Supreme Court sending down a sweeping marriage equality decision. So FRC's answer? A command that its remaining supporters pray and fast, in hopes that God will not destroy us for our gay-accepting ways. This comes from FRC's weekly "prayer targets," which, except for a few short links at the end, is this week fully dedicated to anti-gay discrimination:

Because we love God and neighbor, we must stand up boldly for marriage. God will judge all who violate the holy estate of marriage, how much more a nation that discards His building block for every fruitful society? May we give ourselves to unceasing prayer for the U.S. Supreme Court!

Marriage and the Supreme Court - A not-so-small army of homosexual and pro-homosexual politicians, activists, big businesses, colleges, universities, unions, and even some liberal religious groups have aggressively and assiduously lobbied federal, state and local governments to push the homosexual agenda. Mostly unsuccessful, they turned to the courts because the big guns in this legal and spiritual war against natural and biblical marriage are the activist liberal judges. The liberal media often touts that 38 states have now embraced same-sex “marriage,” while concealing the fact that only in three of those states did the people have a say in giving the practice legal status. The citizens in 35 states had their one-man, one-woman marriage laws overturned by biased federal judges. Thirty-one states went through lengthy, costly amendment processes to make natural marriage part of their state Constitutions.

Most states have resigned themselves to these unjust rulings. Only the Alabama Supreme Court has stood unwaveringly against federal court usurpation. Just one federal Circuit Court (U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit – KY, MI, OH, and TN) has ruled in favor of natural marriage, thus, the U.S. Supreme Court will rule. As FRC has repeatedly warned for the past ten years, and as legal and government assaults against Christians in the last few years have demonstrated, religious liberty and forced same-sex “marriage” cannot coexist. A sweeping Supreme Court ruling like Roe v. Wade in 1973 will not bring resolution. Christians will continue to stand and defend their right to believe and practice their faith. When they are told to do what they cannot do in faith, they will choose to obey God, rather than man, just as Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, Daniel and the apostles, and millions down through history have done.

What impact would a sweeping, imposed legalization of same-sex “marriage,” do to our families, churches, businesses, and every other component of our culture? We are on the verge of finding out unless we pray and God intervenes. If God is merciful, we can win this decisive battle. We must pray that the U.S. Supreme Court will not make a disastrous mistake by declaring same-sex “marriage” a constitutional right, as other courts have done. God will respond to repentant, prevailing prayer and turn the hearts of our Justices.
