Urge Congress to Do What The President Will NotDear Maureen,
February 24, 2011 | | Share with Friends
On Wednesday, in a political move designed to pander to his liberal political base, President Obama announced that his Department of Justice will not defend a court challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) -- a law that was overwhelmingly enacted by Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton. The provision of the law currently under attack simply defines marriage as the union between one man and one woman for federal purposes.
President Obama's Justice Department has a constitutional obligation to defend federal law, even when he disagrees with the law. The Constitution requires that President Obama "shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed." By failing to defend DOMA, he is not satisfying this constitutional requirement. What will be the next law that he chooses not to enforce or uphold?
Now that President Obama has tossed aside this federal law, it is up to Congress to intervene and defend DOMA. Congress will be under political pressure from the far Left to leave the issue alone, but with inaction, Congress would join the President in his dereliction of duty.
Please urge your Member of Congress to stand up for the Defense of Marriage Act by supporting a resolution that authorizes Congress to intervene in the ongoing litigation challenging DOMA.
P.S. Please share this email with as many friends as possible.
Urgent Letter to Pastors & Prayer AppealDear Wiley,
February 23, 2011
FRC President Tony Perkins has asked me to contact you to request your help in calling for an Emergency Prayer Vigil at the nearest state office of your U.S. Representative or one of your U.S. Senators at Noon on Friday. You can find their office locations here. Please take time to read this message carefully.
Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business, receives over $350 million of our tax-dollars each year. They have been exposed over and over again in the past couple years for their unseemly activities and often criminal actions. The most devastating expose came recently in New Jersey when a Planned Parenthood manager was caught on camera offering help to actors (posing as a pimp and prostitute who were operating an underage prostitution ring). She offered abortions and other services for their underage sex workers; and she even advised them how to keep their child prostitutes working and producing income, while they were recovering from abortions. And she illegally promised confidentiality.
The veil has been pulled back! We can no longer deny what is happening. We are accountable to pray and to exercise our leadership to make sure our elected leaders do not continue turning a blind eye to the women and children who are being exploited.
Again, the ugliest aspect of this story is that you and I, and our fellow Christians in churches across America, are supporting Planned Parenthood with our tax dollars -- against our will and in violation of our consciences.
Now, for the first time, the U.S. House of Representatives has passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) that includes an amendment by Congressman Mike Pence (R-Ind.) to deny Planned Parenthood further federal taxpayer funding!
It will require a miracle for this amendment to make its way through the Senate and it will require a major heart change for the most pro-Planned Parenthood President in the history of our nation, to sign it.
Christians have tolerated this for far too long, too many babies have died and too many women have been hurt, but our prayer and action could well make the difference.
Prayer Vigil this Friday, February 25th, Just Two Days Away -- Tony is asking pro-life pastors and churches to help turn the tide with extraordinary prayer for the next several days during this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. He is asking pro-life Christians across America to take just one hour to pray outside their Congressperson or one of their Senators' local offices this Friday. Tony hopes you and your people will visit your elected official's office and stand vigil just outside in unobtrusive prayer for one hour -- from Noon until 1 PM. You can go as a group or alone but do please go!
Please help us make sure that there is sufficient prayer between now and when the Senate deals with this issue with prayer outside every Representative and Senator's office this Friday (find their office locations here). No protest, no signs, no controversy -- just heartfelt prayer.
Also, Tony and Rep. Mike Pence will be conducting a conference call tonight to discuss this issue with some of FRC's closest friends and supporters. Tony would like you to join in the call (Important: please do not forward this number to others, as this is not an open call). At 8:30 PM Eastern, tonight (7:30 Central, 6:30 Mountain, 5:30 Pacific) dial 877-229-8493 to connect directly. The caller ID code to enter is: 15950.
If you would write a brief note urging your network to participate, you can point them to this link for more information.
Please join us in this effort. God performs miracles in answer to prayer. He knows we need one now. Stand with us as we pray for the end of our tax dollars being sent to the nation's largest abortion provider.
I know this is not much lead time, but I hope you realize the urgency of this matter and that you can motivate some of your praying people to join us (Mt 18:18-20).
Rev. Pierre Bynum
