.MARKUS SCHMIDT of the Richmond Times-Dispatch covered last week’s Clergy and Christian Leaders Summit hosted by the Virginia Christian Alliance to unite God’s faithful to stand up and defend the institution of marriage, which God established as between one man and one woman in the Holy Scriptures.

Since Virginia Attorney General Herring’s refusal to defend Virginia’s Constitution, and supported by words from US Attorney General Eric Holder; the battle lines have been drawn.  Should Christians not rise to the call, the battle outcome looks bleak for what God has established which is being usurped by rebellious political leaders.

SCHMIDT writes: Urging Christian leaders to unite on same-sex marriage, Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, said in Richmond on Thursday that the fight to keep marriage between a man and a woman is far from over.

“They want us to believe that the battle is already lost so we won’t stand up and fight,” Brown said at a Clergy and Christian Leaders Summit, hosted by the Virginia Christian Alliance, at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.

Citing an order by the U.S. Supreme Court to halt same-sex marriages in Utah as a federal court ruling allowing them is pending appeal, Brown said “the stay gives us hope that it will be overturned” and that “it is not all lost.”…

Brown said that even if the U.S. Supreme Court eventually declares bans of same-sex marriage unconstitutional, to Christians, marriage will always remain between a man and a woman.  See Richmond Times Dispatch for more…

About the Author

Virginia Christian Alliance
The mission of the VIRGINIA CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE is to promote moral, social and scientific issues we face today from a Biblical point of view. In addition we will refute and oppose, not with hate, but with facts and humor, the secular cultural abuses that have overridden laws and standards of conduct of the past. We will encourage Christians to participate in these efforts through conferences, development of position papers, booklets and tracts, radio/TV spots, newspaper ads and articles and letters-to-the editor, web sites, newsletters and providing speakers for church and civic meetings.
