Webcast For Marriage - Oct. 1st!

Important Webcast for Marriage!

While only those 18 and older will be voting on Proposition 8 next month, their decision will have the greatest impact on those unable to vote: children. Young people are constantly bombarded with messages in the media and at school that homosexuality and same-sex marriage are acceptable and good for our society. Many are confused by the conflict that arises between the culture and their family's morality. Pastor Miles McPherson of Rock Church in San Diego is particularly concerned about the impact of homosexuality on young people.

Tomorrow [TONIGHT! OCTOBER 1ST!] his church will hold a special rally for young people that will be broadcast throughout the state and nation. We encourage you to tune in and help young people you know better understand this crucial issue. The Fine Line: a Rally for Youth, Young Adults, and Parents

The Fine Line: a Rally for Youth, Young Adults, and Parents will be held at 7 p.m., Wednesday, October 1, 2008, at the Rock Church in San Diego. The non-partisan event is free and open to the public.

The Fine Line also will be broadcast live via satellite to approximately 150 churches throughout California who have signed up with the CCN Network. (Locations may be found by going to http://www.iprotectmarriage.com/.)

The iProtectMarriage.com website is also prepared to live stream the event to thousands of users statewide.


"The goal of The Fine Line is to equip and empower young people and their parents to engage on this issue, and go out and DO something," said Miles McPherson, senior pastor of the Rock Church, and a former professional football player with the San Diego Chargers. "The church is under attack. Marriage as designed by God, between a man and a woman, is under attack. We need to motivate young people to be informed, to be strong, to be out there in the real world, confident and active."

The event will be simulcast by Church Communication Network from the Rock Church, San Diego's largest Christian congregation and one of the fastest growing churches in the United States. Known for its multicultural and innovative worship and community service, the Rock features a high-tech sanctuary that seats 3,500. The Mountain View, Calif., based Church Communication Network provides programming in an array of ministry areas.

The youth-oriented evening will include music by rock groups the Katinas and Stellar Kart, and McPherson will speak. Live and video guests will include Ron Luce of Teen Mania, a youth outreach organization; Sean McDowell, a youth oriented Christian apologist; Greg Koukl of Stand to Reason, an organization that trains Christians to think clearly about their faith; Yvette Schneider of Exodus International, a nonprofit, interdenominational Christian organization promoting the message of freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ; skate pros Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi; and Kyle Loza, pro freestyle motocross rider and X Games gold medalist.

The program will culminate with an interactive panel in which speakers will present information on why we should vote yes Nov. 4 on Proposition 8, the Protect Marriage Amendment.

The Fine Line is one of three planned simulcast events in support of Proposition 8. Others include a broadcast presentation for pastors and Christian leaders which took place last Thursday, Sept. 25, and a future broadcast presentation to churches Sunday, Oct. 19.

Quotes on CHRISTIAN CIVIL DUTY

CHRISTIAN CIVIL DUTY

"Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."


-- John Jay, President of the Continental Congress
and first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court


"God commands you to choose for rulers, 'just men who will rule in the fear of God.' . . . if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted."


-- Noah Webster, author of the first American dictionary


"When we [Christians] withhold our influence and participation, we yield by default to those who promote immoral and destructive policies."


-- Dr. James Dobson


"If America is to survive, we must elect more God-centered men and women to public office; individuals who seek Divine guidance in the affairs of state."


-- Rev. Billy Graham


THE RIGHT TO FREEDOM

"The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God."


-- President John F. Kennedy, 1961 Inaugural Address


"We believe that all men are created equal, because they are created in the image of God."


-- President Harry S Truman, 1948 Inaugural Address


"The founding fathers had to refer to the Creator in order to make their revolutionary experiment make sense; it was because "all men are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights" that men could dare to be free."


-- President Dwight D. Eisenhower, in an article
for the Episcopal Churchnews Magazine



RELIGION AND MORALITY

"How could a society fail to perish if, while the political bond is relaxed [for freedom], the moral bond were not tightened? And what makes a people master of itself if it has not submitted to God?"


-- Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America


"And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government."


-- President George Washington, 1796 Farewell Address


"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."


-- President John Adams, 1798 letter
to a Massachusetts militia division


"The principal of equality . . . follows inevitably from belief in the brotherhood of man through the fatherhood of God."


-- President Calvin Coolidge, 1924
address to the Holy Name Society


"The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we can emphasize that enough these days.

"If we don't have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State."



-- President Harry S Truman, 1950 address
to the Attorney General's Conference

The nasty comments continue to pile up both here and at my "Protect Biblical Marriage" blog. I just ignore them and don't publish them.

People - we are in an unprecedented cultural war here in California and across the entire United States!

This election is a battle between good and evil.

It is a battle between those who adhere to Jesus Christ, God, and His Word the Bible; verses the godless secular humanistic worldview. It is being fought on so many fronts it would be too time consuming to list them all!

It is not only a political battle, but a spiritual battle as well.

Our best weapon is to keep this situation bathed in constant prayer!

Secondly, as faithful Christians, we are to do all that we can to warn others of the dangers of an Obama presidency, as well as the corruption that would be brought to our children and grandchildren if same-sex "marriage" is allowed to stand.

Front and center is the marriage definition battle here in California.

I just saw another T.V. ad where a senior couple tells the T.V. audience that they have been married 45 years and have three children.

How nice.

But then, they claim that their "gay" daughter will have the "right" to be married taken away if Proposition 8 passes. See the truth about this here:

Don't Believe the Gay Hype

The following email deserves a blog post all it's own. However, for today, I wanted to keep the current blog post about the simulcast tonight [Oct. 1, 2008] at the top of both blogs.

Therefore, I am copying and pasting it here in the comment section. Notice the title. It was given by the other side.

God bless your day! Keep praying for the McCain/Palin ticket to be victorious on election day and for YES ON Proposition 8 to pass here in California!

In Christ's service,

Christine

Radicals Call California
“Gettysburg of Marriage Battle”



AFM’s Latino leaders are planning a new offense in the marriage battle in California that I hope to share with you in the near future. It represents a bold new effort to reach the most strategic voting block in the State of California.

Meanwhile, activists on the Far Left are now publicly admitting just how high the stakes have become in the nation’s most populous state. Recently, Evan Wolfson – grandfather of the effort to destroy marriage across America – declared “California is Gettysburg” in the marriage battle.

That’s because he knows full well that a loss at the polls in California for marriage supporters would be a serious blow that could change the whole dynamic of the debate at the national level. A defeat for marriage in California will embolden radical activists who have always planned to export their radical agenda to all fifty states.

“The Civil War didn’t end with the Battle of Gettysburg,” said Wolfson. “It took another year and a half of bloody fighting and great uncertainty. But when we look in retrospect, with the eyes of history, we can see that Gettysburg was the turning point of the Civil War. California is Gettysburg” (The Southern Voice).

Other radical activists share this view. Nan Hunter, a Georgetown University law professor put it this way recently: “Of any single development on this issue, legalizing it in California is the biggest single development short of a federal ruling that would render [same-sex marriage] legal nationwide.”

For his part, Wolfson is now boasting that “by this time next year, 25 percent of the American people” will live in a state where the common sense definition of marriage has been struck down. He specifically named New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, and Iowa as next on the agenda.

And following in the wake of the destruction of marriage – as the union of male and female – will be a concerted campaign to take away the basic rights of everyone who dares to disagree with radical activists like Wolfson.

When the common sense definition of marriage was declared a form of bigotry by the Massachusetts courts, Catholic Charities in Boston was forced to close its 100 year old adoption program. Rights of religion and conscience were trampled upon in the name of a brave new social, cultural and legal norm that denies the importance of mothers and fathers for children.

But AFM’s Latino leaders are prepared to stand their ground in California.

“We believe that all citizens in this country have rights -- and these civil rights need to be protected,” said Rev. Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and an AFM Advisory Board Member. “To the Latino family, marriage represents the antidote to destructive social behavior such as drug activity, teenage pregnancy, gang involvement, high school dropout and many others. So to us, marriage in my home state of California is a matter of survival for the community.”

That’s why the Alliance for Marriage will continue to lead the way in mobilizing the Latino community -- both in California and nationwide – to protect the common sense definition of marriage for the future of our children.

Thank you for your friendship and partnership in our efforts to ensure that more children in America are raised in a home with a mother and a father.
