Help stand against the SCOTUS opinion on queer marriage

Pray For US Email banner image
Dear Larry,
We are fired up about the Supreme Court's idiotic ruling that the 14th 
Amendment contained a hidden "right" for homosexuals to get "married" 
to each other and we hope that YOU are fired up about it as well.
Pray For US is not about to surrender America to the radical homosexual 
forces that seek to undermine Christianity -- which is what the Supreme 
Court's Obergefell v. Hodges decision is really about.
If our Representatives and Senators do not speak out and put the 
Supreme Court in check on this issue then there will be nothing to 
stop the black-robed dictators from "legalizing" polygamy, 
bestiality or any other abomination they can think of to try to 
persecute the church.
Congress has the power to overturn a Supreme Court decision. It 
simply needs to exercise that power!
To that end we are mounting a huge effort to remind Congress that it HAS this power and it has been used many times in the past!
Right now the "Protect Marriage from the Courts Act of 2015" has been sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
This Act will nullify the Supreme Court's homosexual "marriage" ruling and kick the federal courts out of the marriage issue entirely so they cannot redefine marriage.

There is nothing controversial about what we are proposing. 
Congress used to reverse Supreme Court decisions all the time.
Congress writes laws. The Supreme Court interprets laws.
When the Supreme Court issues a moronic interpretation, 
Congress can write a new law or regulation, or amend a law, 
that reverses the decision. It is that simple!
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Congress is 
"out of options" and therefore cannot fight the Supreme Court's 
homosexual ruling. This is a lie!
Look at these statistics that were reported by the New York Times 
in 2012:
  • From 1975 to 1990 Congress reversed or overturned 96 Supreme 
  • Court rulings by writing or rewriting legislation -- an average of six 
  • times per year!
  • In 1991 Congress reversed five separate Supreme Court rulings in 
  • one fell swoop by drafting a new version of the Civil Rights Act.
  • Between 1975 and 2008 Congress overturned a total of 131 
  • Supreme Court rulings.
  • Congress has not overturned a Supreme Court ruling since Obama 
  • entered the White House -- not a single one!
It used to be so commonplace for Congress to overturn the Supreme 
Court that there was nothing controversial about it. This was how our 
government operated back when it was still functional -- before Obama 
and his dirty Chicago-style politics took over.
Congress STILL has this power. The only thing that has changed is 
the occupant of the White House.
That is why you need to speak out right now and remind the Senators; 
Representatives that they have this power!
The definition of marriage that has been in place throughout human 
history is so obvious that the vast majority of people understand it 
and believe in it, 
even in liberal states like California which passed Proposition 8 in 
2008.  Jesus could not have been more clear than when he spoke in 
Mark 10:7-9: "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother 
and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh; so 
then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has 
joined together, let no man separate." 
(NPT Bible page 1,173)
There is no wiggle room in the words of Jesus (or in the 14th Amendment, for that matter) to redefine marriage as anything other than what we all know it to be:  one man and one woman.
A Supreme Court ruling does not determine "the law of the land" on any issue! You need to tell Congress to get back to work and to do its job.
The first step is to strip the federal courts of jurisdiction over marriage through S. 1080.
