MARYLAND GROUP REQUESTS PRAYER!
Seeks Referendum on New Sodomy Rights Law
"People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all (Lk 17:28-29).
The Maryland Legislature has passed a new law granting special legal status and rights to homosexuals and lesbians. But a coalition of Christian and pro-family groups is mounting an effort to stop the law via a statewide referendum. They are asking Christians everywhere to support them with believing prayer.
--The "Anti-discrimination Act of 2001," actively promoted by Maryland Governor Paris Glendenning, recently passed both Houses of the Maryland legislature and now awaits the governor's signature.
--The law will give individuals who practice "male or female homosexuality" and "bisexuality" the special legal protections and privileges afforded individuals due to their "race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status and disability." Fines will escalate with each occurrence of discrimination in services, education, housing, employment etc.
--The new law effectively nullifies two state sodomy laws now on the books. Thirteen states and Puerto Rico still have sodomy laws.
--The "Take Back Maryland Coalition" must amass 20,000 Maryland citizen's signatures by May 31 and 50,000 by the end of June in order to qualify for the referendum question to be placed on the 2002 Ballot. They already have 10,000 signatures (see www.takebackmaryland.org).
--Polls now show that 80% of Maryland voters disagree with the new pro-homosexual law.
The next item on the homosexual agenda is homosexual unions. "Gay" activists will not stop until they have fully achieved their goals. And they will achieve them, unless God's people intervene with prayer and action, saying "NO!"
Please Join Us in Believing, Overcoming
--Heavenly Father, You promise to CURSE all who practice & approve homosexuality. Please FORGIVE us for rejecting Your Word. Cause Your pastors and churches, the "watchmen" in Maryland and elsewhere, to RALLY Your children to RESIST this and similar measures.
--Grant the God-fearing men & women who are organizing the Maryland effort great GRACE and complete SUCCESS. May Marylanders OVERWHELMINGLY REJECT this unclean law foisted upon them by wicked leaders. In Jesus' name. Amen (Gen 13:13; 18:20-23; 19:24-25; Dt 29:21-17; Ps 141:5; Pr 1:7; Is 1:9; Ez 3:9-11; 17-19; Lk 13:3,5; Rom 1:18-32; 2 Tim 2:15).
