Nebraska bill aimed at silencing traditional marriage advocates!
Legislation aimed at silencing Christians who support the traditional view of marriage (between one man and one woman) has just been approved by committee and will soon be up for consideration by the entire Nebraska legislature. LB173 would make sexual orientation and gender identity a protected class. This would mean that speaking out against gay marriage—even for religious reasons—would now be considered equivalent to racism.
This law is an obvious attempt to silence Christians. But not only that, it would cheapen the true discrimination that many American have faced on account of their race. We need be preserve the integrity of true minority classes, not discriminate against and silence Christians for opposing a particular sexual behavior.
Please sign this petition to Nebraska legislature and ask them to reject LB173.
If passed, LB173 could be used punish people who decline to promote or participate in gay marriages. As the Nebraska Family Alliance has pointed out, this law would “compromise religious freedom, violate privacy rights, and shut down faith-based organizations and private businesses.”
Despite claiming to respect diversity, the ruling class in our nation is quickly labeling as ‘heresy’ any traditional notions of Christian morality. A celebration of diversity, except when someone disagrees with you, is no diversity at all. It’s tyranny. Our pluralistic society that once lauded different religions and viewpoints is quickly attempting to ban the Christian faith from the public sphere.
Liberal sexual ethics are becoming the new religious orthodoxy in our country. Worshipers of the god of sex will sacrifice anything or anyone who opposes sex without restrictions. As Christians, we must hold firm to the truth that the Bible teaches about sex in marriage, and we must support one another when attacked.
Gay marriage is not a civil right issue; it’s an issue of morality. Let’s ask the Nebraska legislature to respect true minorities and not force Christians to participate in events with which they disagree. Join me in asking the legislature to reject this bill.
