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 at least in Mississippi it will stop if you act today.

Please sign our petition to Republican legislators and Governor Phil Bryant demanding that they support 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."

Act Today!
Support Critical Religious Liberty Legislation

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 is on the precipice of enacting legislation to prevent this type of discrimination. A final vote on the House floor tonight is all that stands in the way of robust legislation to protect the rights of Christians and people of faith against being punished for refusing to abandon their beliefs about marriage. But there are five Republicans who sided with liberal Democrats that could derail this critical legislation. We need to let them, and Governor Phil Bryant, know that America is watching what happens in Mississippi and that we demand they stand strong for Christians and people of faith.

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!"

Defend Religious Liberty and Support HB 1523 Today!

It is imperative that these five legislators and Gov. Bryant hear from you today in support of HB 1523. It doesn't matter whether you live in Mississippi or not. Just as they have done 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. They are making identical threats and false claims of "discrimination" in Mississippi and we need people of faith and marriage supporters all across the nation to let the leaders of Mississippi know that we want them to lead by example and stand strong for people of faith.

Please sign our petition immediately so that key elected officials in Mississippi hear from people like you all over the country that you appreciate a state that protects the rights of Americans who believe that marriage is what God designed it to be — one man and one woman — and enacts legislation to make sure that nobody is targeted by LGBT extremists over their views on marriage.

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
