Catholic Group Urges America to Resist Homosexual 'Marriage'
HANOVER, Penn., June 5 /Christian Newswire/ -- Reacting to California's Supreme Court ruling in favor of homosexual "marriage," the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) published a two-page ad today, which appeared simultaneously in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Times.
The American TFP's statement is called Battling for America's Soul: How Homosexual "Marriage" Threatens Our Nation and Faith-the TFP Urges Lawful and Conscientious Resistance.
"Mainstream America is understandably upset about same-sex 'marriage,'" said TFP director Preston Noell. It is a grave offense against God and undermines 2,000 years of Christian morality. Same-sex 'marriage' threatens the social stability of our nation and future," he added.
In fact, after New York Governor David Patterson ordered legal recognition for same-sex "marriages" contracted out of state, the controversy has only intensified.
"There's a battle going on for America's soul," Noell explained. "At the root of this conflict lies a profound divergence of worldviews. The Christian worldview is anchored in reality, whereas secularism does not respect reality's constraints."
"America is witnessing a rising tide of laws and judicial decisions that favor homosexual practices on one hand, and hinder and punish those who oppose them for reasons of faith and conscience on the other," he said. "I'm starting to see elements of a new religious persecution falling into place, and that's most troubling."
