"Marriage is more than friendship and marriage is more than sexual attraction."
Bishop Joseph Perry, Archdiocese of Chicago
The cross cultureal, cross faith coalion was established "for the purpose of lifting up the truths of the Bible which states that marriage is between a man and a woman.... And we want to make sure that we send a message that we can ill afford to put the agenda of some and the few in the name of civil rights ahead of the civil rights of our children." He goes on to point out that the issue isn't about marriage, but about money being poured into the move to redefine marriage. Wow! Bishop Lance Davis, New Zion Christian Fellowship of Dolton
"We're here today because we believe the foundation of the family has been attempted to be destroyed and if we can do anything about it here in Illinois, we're standing together to do it.... We want it on record so that our children and children's children know that in our lifetime we stood for that which is right."
Bishop Larry Trotter, Sweet Holy Church, Chicago
"We're not giving special rights to the alcoholic; we're not giving special rights to the fornicator; we're not giving special rights to the liar; and today we're taking a stand to say we will not give special rights to those who want to marry in this situation....Let's get back to what God is saying." Bishop Tyrone Harrington, Greater Morning View Baptist Church
"We are not anti anyone.... In our churches we have homosexuals and lesbians and we love them all...but as far as the Bible is concerned, we stand on the word of God....If you reject this you're not rejecting us. We don't lose; you're rejecting God and God is, as much as he is a loving God, He is also a righteous God. As much as He is a God of grace and mercy, He is also a God of truth and justice. And when you deal with Him, you're going to have to deal with Him." Pastor Kenneth Giles, Second Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist ChurchThis impressive group puts to the lie the pretense that giving special rights to homosexuals is a matter of "civil rights." There is no protected civil right to sodomy. There is no protected civil right to do whatever you want whenever you want with whomever or whatever you want. Sinful inclinations are not protected civil rights and redefining institutions to give certain sins a special place in the culture is madness, pure and simple. It confirms what the Greek playwright Euripides said, "Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad." Satan and his minions are the "gods" of this world and they have done a pretty effective job of making the world mad. There destruction is assured if they don't repent. Those of us who still recognize the truth need to stay close to the cross of Christ and speak the truth to the culture with charity in the hope that at least some will listen. Many will hate us for it, but no matter. To be loved by Christ is worth all the persecution of which the world is capable!
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. Our Lady, help of Christians, pray for us. St. Joseph, patron of the universal Church, pray for us. Dear guardian angels and patron saints, pray for us.
