Stand for Marriage Sunday!

Barb Wire

No one, not even the Supreme Court, has the power to redefine the institution of marriage. But on April 28, plenty of people will try. On that Tuesday, nine justices will hear arguments on whether the United States should change the definition of a union as old as civilization itself. Before federal judges began to overturn marriage laws, 30 states had protected natural marriage in their Constitutions. Now the High Court is poised to decide for us all.

Before that happens, FRC is urging Christians to make their voices heard in the Courts of Heaven and the Courts of Public Opinion. On Sunday April 26th, we’re encouraging our entire network of Watchmen pastors and their millions of church members to watch a brief video, distribute the bulletin insert, and then spend time during worship in focused prayer for the court and our country at a special event — Stand for Marriage Sunday: Religious Liberty at Risk.

For more information on how you can join, click over to our website. Between now and then, take the opportunity to pray and speak out on the facts about marriage. You can find sample tweets, Facebook posts, and op-ed ideas on our website. The Christian community needs to show up and send a message to the Court that we will not stand by silently while family and freedom hang in the balance!
