The FAMiLY Leader via LUV (Let Us Vote) Iowa rallied around 500 activists to the Iowa Statehouse to demonstrate their support for an Iowa Marriage Amendment and to speak with their Senators to urge its passage out of the Iowa Senate.

Pastor Cary Gordon of Cornerstone World Outreach in Sioux City, IA was the first to speak.  He challenged pastors to not let the sacrifices made by the “Black Robed Regiment” (pastors who served during the Revolutionary War) be in vain because of their silence.  He discussed the assumption of natural law in our founding.  You can watch his speech below.

Rev. Keith Ratliff of Maple Street Baptist Church in Des Moines spoke next.  Rev. Ratliff is the former head of the Iowa/Nebraska chapter of the NAACP and he challenged the homosexual community’s civil rights rhetoric as related to marriage.  His speech is below:

Judge Roy Moore, the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court spoke last.  He discussed judicial review, separation of powers, and where the ultimate power of government lies.  You can watch his speech below:

  1. mmm…..I love the taste of theocracy in the morning. Let’s be blunt: they wish for religion and government to mix, and as if that weren’t bad enough, they surely wouldn’t support say….the senator from Minnesota bringing his religion into government, right? After all, he’s a Muslim and that would mean sharia…..so…..the translation is that they want religion in the government….as long as it HAPPENS to be their religion.

  2. How exactly is straight marriage threatened by gay marriage, or are your marriages unsteady the slightest gust of wind will bring the house of cards of your life crashing down?
