Religion not allowed in public

Dear Fellow American,
On December 20th, 2013 a single left-wing federal judge struck down Utah's law protecting marriage.
Even in the nation's most conservative state, traditional marriage is in deep trouble. And this is just the beginning.
Recently, we have seen left-leaning judges strike down the protection of marriage in Texas, Oklahoma, and Virginia.
I fear what may come next!
The radical homosexual lobby is already mobilizing to wipe out every single law in the country that protects this most sacred and important institution. And if we don't fight back now, they're going to get away with it!
Here at the American Leadership Fund we are desperately trying to hold the line against the radical homosexual lobby and its allies in the left-wing media and the judiciary.
We are fighting all over the country to convince state legislatures to preserve traditional marriage both in the courts and through legislation.
Never again should an activist judge be allowed to overturn the will of the people. Not when the sacred institution of marriage is on the line!!
It's more important than ever that Americans like you take a public stand supporting traditional marriage right now.
You see, the liberal media is portraying this battle over the definition of marriage as being effectively over. Almost every day some reporter breathlessly declares that the American people overwhelmingly support "gay marriage."
And all too many politicians and judges believe this nonsense!
In fact, Barack Obama's puppet Eric Holder has instructed state attorneys general NOT to enforce traditional marriage laws, even if they're already on the books!
We must stand up to this lawlessness. We MUST hold the line. Pro-traditional marriage activists are pushing back hard all across the country. But they need help. Desperately.
We need thousands and thousands of ordinary Americans to join this crusade. We need to show the liberal media that ordinary Americans don't want judges striking down traditional marriage laws.
We need to fight back and fight back now.
Just consider what will happen if gay "marriage" becomes the new normal.
The radical homosexual lobby will turn its attention to churches and places of businesses. These radicals will use the courts to force every American to publicly accept their twisted views as normal and right.
It's already happening. In Massachusetts, ten years after they legalized gay marriage, church-owned adoption agencies have been forced to shut down and radical homosexuals are terrorizing churches during their services.
And just a few months ago, an Oregon baker was found guilty of discrimination after he declined to supply a cake for a gay wedding. He will now almost certainly be fined thousands of dollars simply for standing up for his faith!
Just weeks after the British government passed its gay marriage bill, two homosexuals filed a lawsuit arguing that the Church of England must marry them!
My friend, if we don't act now, any one of us could be next.
Please, stand with us to preserve traditional marriage and religious liberty.
The future of our country hangs in the balance.
Let's show these radicals that our fight's not over. It's only just begun.
Thank you in advance for all your help.

Tacwash –
ONE-SIDED SOPHISTRY says salvation is by works and not by grace through faith. The Bible says otherwise. Titus 3:5. Eph. 2:8-10.
Baptismal regeneration is forced upon people by the misuse of scripture. Note how often the context is ignored and even partial verses are quoted by those that honor water over the blood of Christ in regard to salvation from sin. 1Jn.1:7.
Mark 16:16 ....has been baptized shall be saved....
This passage teaches that only BELIEVERS are saved and after salvation believers should follow the Lord in biblical immersion.
John 3:5 ....unless one is born of water...he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
Jesus is teaching on the difference between spiritual things and carnal things in this passage. For one to read baptism into it, is to put words into the Saviors mouth that He did not say.
Acts 2:38 ...and each of you be baptized......for the forgiveness of your sins...
This is probably the most frequently abused verse in the Bible by those who insist on the need to be baptized in order to be saved. However, the word “for” in this verse does not need to be interpreted as meaning “in order to” but is very often interpreted as meaning “because of” and the first interpretation teaches contrary to the Bible Doctrine of Justification by faith where as the second interpretation is consistent with the Bible Doctrine of Justification by faith. So, to be biblically consistent, the reader MUST go with the second interpretation in this verse.
Romans 6:3-6 Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?........6 know this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;
Here in Romans chapter six we learn that the ordinance of biblical immersion is given as a picture of what actually saves. Christ is the Savior. He died on the cross, was buried and rose again. That is the gospel according to 1Cor.15:1-4 and the power of God unto salvation according to Rom.1:16. Scripture does not teach that dipping someone in water will save them but to the contrary, scripture inculcates that biblical immersion is a figure and an answer of a good conscience toward God after being born again by grace through faith. Saving faith is in Christ not in any of our good works before or after we trust Him and His finished work.

Colossians 2:12-13 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead . 13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircuncision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions.
Colossians is another passage of scripture that speaks of the pictorial aspect of biblical immersion and the text in fact emphasizes how the believer is complete in Christ. Christ is the Savior. He is the important thing not some Campbellite baptistery.
Ephesians 5:25-27 ...just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.
Ephesians is one of the strongest books in the New Testament on the doctrine of Salvation by Grace through faith. Christ taught that it is the Spirit that quickeneth, Jn.6:63. The Spirit uses the word of God in regeneration (quickening) Titus 3:5-7. Paul writing to the congregation in Ephesus uses water as a metaphor for the word. God uses the word to cleanse His people. Ps.119:9.
1Peter 3:21 Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you......
The Apostle Peter also agrees with the other writers of the New Testament that biblical immersion is a picture or figure of what Christ did in reality to save lost sinners. 1Pet.3:18. Even the flood in Noah’s day proves this. It was not the water that saved the elect in that day, it was the fact that they were in the ark (a type of Christ) and God shut them in it.
