I was catching up on the news of the week when an article titled, “Gay Marriage Is an Abomination Before God” caught my eye in the newsfeed. Curious, I clicked over to read more. The article serves as a plea to North Carolina voters to vote for Marriage One on May 8, 2012. The author’s reason:
Many do not see this, but where we are headed is the jungle, where homosexuality, lesbianism, transgender, bestiality, pedophilia and any other conceivable behavior is a self-proclaimed right.
Dwight Creech’s words may create a sense of sadness or anger in some. His words should also generate fear. There are people out there like Mr. Creech that actually think committed gay or lesbian couples should be compared to pedophiles – and that’s just scary.
So if you’re wondering why so many people are out there speaking out against these mean-spirited amendments, it’s partially because they fear people like Dwight Creech. When an individual has no qualms of putting this kind of hateful speech out there for public view, you’ve got to wonder how far they would be willing to go. Who is next in Mr. Creech’s crosshairs?
If you don’t like to see or hear things like this, you must lend your voice to the fight. North Carolina is literally just weeks away from a very heated vote on this so-called marriage amendment – we can’t allow this mean-spirited amendment to pass because we sat idly by and were quiet on the sidelines.
The same is true here in Minnesota. There are Dwight Creeches in every state out there. We must stand together and say No More.
North Carolina, I’m hopeful you will stand together in May and say NO to Amendment One. Minnesota, I’m hopeful we will stand together in NOvember and say no to our very own marriage amendment. And Dwight Creech, I will say an extra prayer for you tonight: may you see your judgement on others as a direct conflict to the very teachings you profess.
