Sodomite bullying in Michigan
...[T]he following...was sent to me by one of our readers...
" I am requesting your prayers for a confrontation against sin going on in Ypsilanti, Michigan. More than a year ago, a homosexual student organization, Tri Pride, went to a print shop to get some raffle tickets printed for one of their events . The print shop owners...are Bible believing Christians and they politely declined to do the job. Tri Pride then sued the Hansens on the grounds of discrimination. Subsequently, the Ypsilanti City Council moved to include a "non-discrimination" ordinance which would include "sexual preference" with other categories of protected classes (race, sex, etc.).
"Our pastor, Wesley Rowe, mobilized our church and other area churches to support the Hansens and speak out against the homosexual ordinance. The Ministers Alliance of Ypsilanti (an organization of black pastors) similarly mobilized their churches and was represented by Levon Yule, pastor of The Bible Church of Ypsilanti.
"The City Council appointed a group of nine people into a Human Relations Committee which held a series of public forums. These meetings were heated but non-violent meetings which concluded with the Human Relations Committee voting AGAINST a homosexual rights ordinance by a vote of 5 to 4. Despite their recommendations, the City Council voted unanimously to pass the ordinance anyway. The members of the City Council are obviously very sympathetic to the homosexuals and in fact, two of them are homosexuals!
"Subsequently, a group (largely of Christians) organized Citizens Opposed to Special Treatment or COST. This group labored to get petitions signed in order to have a referendum vote on this issue called Proposal C. They got more signatures than they needed and a vote will be held on May 5. COST has also organized a rally on April 30 which will feature the Wynans and the niece of the late Martin Luther King. Reggie White the defensive lineman for the Green Bay Packers will also be there as he is an outspoken Christian against homosexuality.
"Please pray that those undecided will vote YES ON C which will strike the homosexual ordinance from the city laws. Please pray also for the rally that it may be well organized and have a good attendance. In addition, please pray for the safety and efforts of all the COST workers who have diligently been handing out flyers and writing editorial letters.
"Given the moral and spiritual climate of our country the odds are definitely against Christians. Yet regardless of the outcome we have to be salt and light to our community and stand firmly for Christ and the Bible. The Lord Jesus wants us [to] stand against evil and sin albeit in a lawful, responsible and God honoring way. I grieve for our nation but I praise the Lord for his sovereign power and wisdom. In the end His holy and righteous justice will prevail! To Him be all honor and glory!!"
Glory to God! You know what? Even if the sodomites win, they've still lost! we Christians KNOW how this battle ends, glory to God and hallelujah!
