Illinois is the next battlefield for same-sex marriage. Next week, the state legislature is expected to vote on same-sex marriage. Among the people working to defeat the same-sex marriage proposal are African-American pastors.
These pastors are threatening political opposition to remove those lawmakers who vote for same-sex marriage. Bishop Larry Trotter said, “I think that they will feel the crunch. I think that they cannot take for granted that they can come to the church; and get the church’s sanction, and votes, and signatures; and then go to Springfield, and don’t speak what the people want them to speak. And so now, if that’s how we have to be heard, we will be heard,”
The homosexual movement has compared their campaign to force acceptance of their lifestyle upon Americans to the black civil rights movement of the 1950's and 60's. This untenable position was responded to by Dr. Martin Luther King's daughter who echoed the position of these African-American clergy when she said, "I know deep down in my sanctified soul that he [Dr. King] did not take a bullet for same-sex marriage."
We support the brave stand these African-American pastors are taking against the onslaught of the abomination of homosexuality. Keep fighting the good fight!
