"WE WILL NEVER SUBMIT!"
The Supreme Court's decision to create a Constitutional right of "marriage" between two people of the same gender, will go down in history as one of the most irrational and destructive in American jurisprudential history. By doing so the Court has undermined its own legitimacy, usurped a role reserved to the states, defied the will of the American people and declared war on the First Amendment, Bible believing Christians and God.
To quote Justice Scalia, this is nothing short of a "threat to Democracy." A majority of nine judges do not rule America; the people do. The definition of marriage has existed for all of human history and is enshrined in the beliefs of Christians, Jews and Muslims. It is validated by natural law and the obvious biological impulse to procreate. The Supreme Court has just overturned thousands of years of history, culture and human understanding of what a marriage is.
Now this serpent will continue to wind its way through every aspect of American culture at an accelerated pace. Children must be retaught, schools will adjust their curriculum, business owners will be forced to accept what their hearts know is not right. True Christians, knowing they must obey God rather than men, will come into direct conflict with our government. But we will never submit.
STAND ("Staying True to America's National Destiny"), MINISTERS TAKING A STAND and VETERANS TAKING A STAND will continue to fight for the Judeo-Christian principles which made America a blessed, prosperous and powerful nation. We are calling for a U.S. Constitutional Amendment overturning the Supreme Court's decision, and defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
We urge all Americans, regardless of race, denomination, or political party to join with us in fighting for the restoration of Judeo-Christian values and religious liberty in America.
