FMA: Down for the Count?
Spiritual Warfare, Confusion Trouble Marriage Vote
This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic confusion and every evil thing are there (Jas 3:15-16).
Calls supporting the Federal Marriage Amendment (FMA) are finally jamming phone lines at the U.S. Senate, but GOP hopes for a victory in tomorrow's vote may be crumbling. Democrat one-upmanship and Republican disunity are working together to condemn this all-important bid to protect Biblical Marriage.
- Democrats adamantly reject Amendment wording that some scholars believe could prevent homosexual "civil unions" (already legal in Vermont & New Jersey). Certain Republicans also support "civil unions."
- Republicans are proposing to bring two amendments to a vote: the original, which states, "Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any state, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman," and a second version that reads: "Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman."
- Now Democrats say they will not accept two votes and will filibuster.
- Things are in continual flux and could change again. Only God working through the prayers of his people can reverse this evil effort to hijack our nation, marriage and the family. If we fail, America is doomed.
