President, Foundation or Moral Law
At the commencement of this new year, the State of Alabama has reached a point of crisis in regard to same-sex marriage. On January 23 of this year a U.S. District Judge, Callie V.S. "Ginny" Granade ruled on a case, Searcy v. Strange. Granade ruled that the Alabama Marriage Protection
Act and the amendment that later enshrined it in the state constitution both were unconstitutional, thus striking down the state's ban on same-sex marriage.
Judge Granade alleges that Alabama's ban on same-sex marriage violated the U.S. Constitution's Equality Protection & Due Process clauses. However, nothing in the United States Constitution grants the federal government the authority to redefine the institution of marriage. That power is reserved to the States by the Tenth Amendment.
In the 2006 election, 81% of Alabama voters voted to ratify the Sanctity of Marriage Amendment to the Alabama Constitution, which provides that marriage is,"[a] sacred covenant, solemized between a man and a woman"; that"[a] union replicating marriage of or between two persons of the same-sex..shall be considered and treated in all respects as having no legal force or effort in this state." Art1, Â§ 36.03 (c),(b),&(g) Ala. Constitution 1901.
Judge Granade's ruling does not change Alabama law. The Supreme Court of Alabama has already made rulings on two marriage cases, Hughes v. Hughes, 44 Ala. 698,703 (1870), Smith v. Smith, 37 So. 638,639 (1904) defining marriage as, "A divine institution" imposing on the parties, "higher moral and religious obligations than those imposed by any mere human institution or government". Moreover, there the Supreme Court of Alabama referred to marriage as a, "sacred relationship."
In essence, Judge Granade's ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, is not only in direct violation of the Alabama Constitution, but it also violates "God's Natural Law", as well as the right of the people who voted to ban same-sex marriage in 2006 and won by an overwhelming 81%. In Leviticus, Moses instructs the children of Israel on what God told him, "If a man lies with a male as he does a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them" (Lev. 20:13). And in the New Testament Paul warns that same-sex activity is the result of rebellion against God and leads to destruction (Romans 1:26-27). Jesus died for our sins, but He still calls sin what it is. He did not condemn the woman taken in adultery, but He told her, "Go, and sin no more." (John 8:11).
Today the sacred institution of marriage is being destroyed by the LGBT community and liberal politicians who "want change" as did our President; and they make their rulings based on their emotions and not law. Every human being wants to find meaning in their life, some find it in religion, some find it in material things, certain people find it in sexual lust; however, all they need is Jesus Christ. We as Christians do not condemn homosexuals; instead we point them toward eternal life through Christ Jesus. However, we are only a small portion on the kingdom of God; Pastors, Deacons, Youth, and Ministers, These are the days of Elijah! There has never been a greater time for the kingdom of God to unite. Recall the story of Elijah, particularly as he stood up to the prophets of Baal. Elijah's story is in the book of Kings. As you read you see how isolated and alone he felt in the culture in which he lived. Instead of conforming to the ungodly ways of his people God told Elijah to stand up and speak for him and he did.
In such times that we live in we might ask ourselves "is God in control?" Well I assure you, God is very much in control, and these days are special times when God is watching and waiting for his people to fight and stand up and speak for Him. Now we are under grace and not under the law, but the righteousness that comes by faith can be no less than the moral law that comes directly from God. These are not the days of God stepping back and allowing our state and society to submit to the rule of the wicked. Rather, these are the days He is calling on all of the body of Christ to make a stand against the malignant spirit that envelops our court rooms and society. The body of Christ, the church, is the grass roots of the Foundation for Moral Law. The sole purpose of our nonprofit organization is to uphold the Constitution and promote the moral and biblical principles to our government.
Founded by Chief Justice Roy Moore, The Foundation for Moral Law's goal is to be the sword of the spirit for Christians all over who don't want to see Alabama or America become the next Sodom and Gomorrah. The Foundation has always stood alongside God's People. We promote the biblical and moral principles that this country was founded upon. We will continue our battle against evil, and judicial immorality.
However, because this so great a cause, we cannot win this battle alone. We are constantly facing adversity. As a a non-profit organization, we rely solely on donations to help promote moral principles of to the government. As Christians, we are constantly being ridiculed, and this causes emotional, public, and financial pressure. However, we remain at peace because we know Who is in control.
Therefore I urge you to please pray, generously give in good faith, and influence every person you come into contact with. Each person reading this represents a family. Every Pastor represents a congregation. And every teacher represents a class. Spread the word of God and let it be known that God's people will not fall subject to immorality. We will fight until He returns, because mighty is the day when every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess who is Lord.
