"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found" (Psalm 32:6)
Landmark "Gay" Rights Case Will Be Heard TODAY!
Do not defile yourselves [with homosexuality & other perverse sexual practices], because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled... (Lev 18:22-26).
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments over Lawrence v. Texas this morning, March 26, 2003. This landmark case could result in the imposition of homosexual rights upon the states in the same way that Roe v. Wade imposed abortion rights upon them in 1973. The justices will consider the oral arguments and issue their ruling this summer.
--In 1998 Houston police, responding to a call about a dangerous gunman, burst into an apartment only to find two men engaged in a homosexual act. They were charged with violating a Texas law outlawing homosexual conduct, confined overnight and fined $200. They appealed their case, charging that the law was unconstitutional.
--The arguments presented today will deal with whether the Texas sodomy law violates the U.S. Constitution and the equal protection and privacy rights of homosexuals.
--Opponents say that the "right to privacy" is among the "most fundamental of rights guaranteed in the Constitution".
--Every state had anti-sodomy laws just a few years ago. Now, twenty-six states and the District of Columbia have repealed their laws and nine states have had their laws stricken down by the courts. Sixteen states and Puerto Rico still have sodomy laws in force.
--This important case has been overlooked or underestimated by most Christians. Not only could it strike down every sodomy law that remains in America. It could pave the way for homosexual marriage in every state.
Through prayer, we must now succeed in obtaining God's intervention lest Roe v. Wade and Lawrence v. Texas be remembered as the decisions that precipitated America's final destruction.
While the Iraq war is on everyone's mind, but we must make this a matter for prayer, too. Please forward this to all your praying Christian friends. Ask them to join us in prayer.
