Administration Will Not Defend Marriage Law - Links from BreakPoint radio
Rating: 4.00

Some important links mentioned by Chuck Colson in his BreakPoint Commentary:

  • ADF President Alan Sears says "It is time to fight" - after President Obama's administration and the Department of Justice refuse to defend the Defense of Marriage act (passed in 1996).

  • Dr. Timothy George, Dean of Beason Divinity School, gives a stirring speech marking how Martin Niemoeller, famed German pastor who stood up to Hitler, sets an example we MUST be prepared to follow.

  • Chuck Colson and Dr. Robert George have sent a letter to all signers of the Manhattan Declaration concerning the gravity of the issues at hand.

Some quotes from Alan Sears' letter:

"It’s no exaggeration to say that the President’s team has been throwing the cases. The Administration has expressly waived advancing winning legal arguments and intentionally failed to cite binding legal precedent in each case..."

"It’s an outrage that the President and his Attorney General would not only fail to defend the law, but actively side with those who seek to redefine marriage and label the majority of Americans as the equivalent of bigots motivated by “animus” for believing marriage is the union of one man and one woman."

Dr. Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School has posted a video address calling for Christians to be ready to stand against civil authorities if necessary. His example is Pastor Martin Niemoeller, who stood  against Hitler and the Nazis during the days of the Third Reich. Niemoeller was the leader in the "Confessing Church" movement, which included other leaders such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
