Act Today To Protect Christians Against LGBT Extremists

 

Dear Marriage Supporter,

All across America, LGBT extremists are working overtime to force devout Christians and other people of faith to personally participate in celebrating a same-sex 'marriage' even when doing so violates their deeply held religious beliefs. Those who have refused to abandon God's commands when it comes to marriage have been hit with lawsuits and huge fines, lost their jobs and even been put in jail. This must stop, and it will stop in Mississippi if you act today.

Please sign our petition to Governor Phil Bryant demanding that he sign into law critical religious liberty legislation (House Bill 1523) that will protect Christians and other people of faith from having to abandon their beliefs about marriage.

For years, LGBT activists lied to Americans about gay 'marriage,' claiming that redefining marriage to suit their demands would not hurt anyone. Instead, people's lives have been ruined and the sexual extremists are intent on forcing every person in America to genuflect at the altar of gay "rights."

It is outrageous that gay and lesbian extremists have been allowed to discriminate against, harass and punish Christians and others when it comes to marriage. Fortunately, the Mississippi legislature just acted to prevent this type of discrimination and passed legislation that will protect the rights of Christians and people of faith, and shield them from being punished for refusing to abandon their beliefs about marriage. Now it is up to Governor Phil Bryant to sign the legislation into law.

House Bill 1523 protects pastors, churches and individuals from having to solemnize a gay 'wedding' and protects individuals and small businesses like florists, bakers and photographers from being forced to perform services at a gay 'wedding' ceremony that violates their deeply held religious beliefs. The legislation also prevents LGBT extremists from forcing their gender ideology on Mississippi which would allow men to force their way into intimate facilities reserved for girls and women, including showers and restrooms, simply by claiming they "identify" as women. Biology determines gender, not "feelings!"

Act Today to Help Protect Religious Liberty

It is imperative that Gov. Bryant hear from you today now that the Legislature has enacted HB 1523. In other states, LGBT extremists have orchestrated a campaign of "manufactured outrage" utilizing Hollywood celebrities, corporate giants and billionaire sports owners who wish to curry favor with gay activists. Their well-orchestrated play book threatens boycotts, companies threatening to leave the state and sports leagues hinting a state may be denied high-profile events like a Super Bowl or college bowl game. Sadly, these actions of intimidation have worked on a few gutless Republican governors like Mike Pence in Indiana, Dennis Daugaard in South Dakota and Nathan Deal in Georgia.

To combat the expected media firestorm and false claims of "discrimination," Governor Bryant must hear from grassroots citizens that you expect him to support the rights of Christians and people of faith in Mississippi and not allow them to be targeted by LBGT extremists and their fat-cat supporters in corporate America and entertainment.

Please sign our petition to Gov. Bryant immediately so that he hears from people like you who live and work in Mississippi and who want you and your neighbors to be protected from adverse actions simply because you believe that marriage is what God designed it to be — one man and one woman.

Thank you for standing strong for true marriage and the rights of Christians and people of faith to be free from recrimination and harassment from extremists who believe that religious liberty must be eliminated when it comes to the gay agenda.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown
