Tower of Babble: Alabama Baptist Convention Prays Against Same-Sex Couples

Ginter Park Baptist church

 

Because they have nothing else to pray over and worry about like perhaps world peace, ending hunger, and helping their fellow man. The Alabama Baptist Convention earlier this week issued a resolution in which they pray for the state’s probate judges to refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

 

WHEREAS, Court decisions during the past several months have effectively abolished biblical marriage as the only legally sanctioned form in numerous other states across our nation; and

WHEREAS, The effect of the panel’s ruling is that on Monday, February 9, 2015, Alabama will become the 37th state in which marriage licenses must be issued by probate offices upon request to same-sex couples; and

WHEREAS, Several Probate Judges have expressed plans to no longer officiate for wedding ceremonies; and

WHEREAS, A landmark decision from the U.S. Supreme Court is expected within a few months regarding marriage and same-sex couples; now therefore be it

RESOLVED, That the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions, meeting in Montgomery on February 6, 2015, expresses moral outrage, intense grief and strong disagreement over court rulings that have set our culture in a direction against the biblical definition of marriage; and be it further

RESOLVED, That we offer prayer and personal support for those Probate Judges who, exercising their personal religious liberties, conscientiously object to the affirmation of the marriage of same-sex couples; and be it further

RESOLVED, That we will pray for those with whom we disagree, specifically those who advocate the abolition of biblical marriage as the only legally sanctioned form; and be it further

RESOLVED, That we commit to pray for the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court who are expected this year to issue a landmark ruling that could abolish the sole legality of biblical marriage throughout our nation; and be it further

RESOLVED, That we encourage Alabama Baptists and all Christians to continue to be faithful to the biblical definition of marriage and that we call for sincere repentance, earnest prayer and a commitment to seek God’s face for a spiritual and moral awakening in America.

Blah blah blah blah blah ……….

 

The REAL “Biblical definition of marriage” …

1 Kings 11:

King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharaoh’s daughter—Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites…… 3 He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines.

Busy man.

    Hmm, moral outrage and intense grief? These fuckers no doubt felt the same way about slavery. And guess what? The fuckers lost.

    Christianity really needs to be classified as a mental illness.

What do you think?
