June 2015 Phyllis Schlafly Report - Eagle Forum

June 2015 Phyllis Schlafly Report - Eagle Forum:

"The use of same-sex marriage to attack Christian businesses, but not
businesses run by members of other religions, demonstrates what is
really driving the demand for a new constitutional right to same-sex
marriage. It is simply the latest attempt to destroy Christian
institutions and discredit Christian beliefs....(tyranny always goes after the Christians first.- BT)

"...A Supreme Court decision that strikes down state marriage laws wouldn’t
just be a defeat for marriage. It would also limit our First Amendment
right to the free exercise of religion...(it would be the government telling us what we are and are not allowed to believe- the very definition of religious persecution.)

"...Our Founding Fathers recognized the dangers of religious persecution,
so they guaranteed in the Bill of Rights that all Americans can freely
exercise their faith. They view religious freedom as a natural right,
essential to everyone’s full participation in our political process. Religious freedom is now at risk....

"...History, social science research, and common sense have taught us a
few truths about the best way to raise a family. (This is a second point, after religious freedom) Children do best when
they grow up raised by their biological father and mother. They benefit
from the stability that marriage provides, and need both the father’s
masculine and the mother’s feminine presence.

"These advantages add up to a brighter future. Children raised by
their mother and father commit fewer crimes and do better in school. And
when these children grow up, they are more likely to marry and maintain
intact families, and give their kids the same family advantages they
had." (Of course, these children raised in stable families are not in need of government help, which reduces the power of the government. If there is one thing the government can't stand it's not being able to control us.)

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
