The Marriage Solidarity Pledge

Comments Off on The Marriage Solidarity Pledge

We urge you to sign this pledge today and join with many national and local leaders of differing religious backgrounds who are uniting in defense of natural Marriage.

We Pledge in Solidarity to Defend Marriage and the Family and Society Founded Upon Them

We stand together in defense of marriage and the family and society founded upon them. While we come from a variety of communities and hold differing faith perspectives, we are united in our common affirmation of marriage.

On the matter of marriage, we stand in solidarity. We affirm that marriage and family have been inscribed by the Divine Architect into the order of Creation. Marriage is ontologically between one man and one woman, ordered toward the union of the spouses, open to children and formative of family. Family is the first vital cell of society, the first government, and the first mediating institution of our social order. The future of a free and healthy society passes through
marriage and the family.

Marriage as existing solely between one man and one woman precedes civil government. Though affirmed, fulfilled, and elevated by faith, the truth that marriage can exist only between one man and one woman is not based on religion or revelation alone, but on the Natural Law, written on the human heart and discernible through the exercise of reason. It is part of the natural created order. The Natural Law is what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., referred to as a higher law or
a just law in his famous Letter from Birmingham Jail.

Marriage is the preeminent and the most fundamental of all human social institutions. Civil institutions do not create marriage nor can they manufacture a right to marry for those who are incapable of marriage. Society begins with marriage and the family.

We pledge to stand together to defend marriage for what it is, a bond between one man and one woman, intended for life, and open to the gift of children. The institutions of civil government should defend marriage and not seek to undermine it. Government has long regulated marriage for the true common good. Examples, such as the age of consent, demonstrate such a proper regulation to ensure the free and voluntary basis of the marriage bond. Redefining the very institution of marriage is improper and outside the authority of the State. No civil institution, including the United States Supreme Court or any court, has
authority to redefine marriage.

As citizens united together, we will not stand by while the destruction of the institution of marriage unfolds in this nation we love. The effort to redefine marriage threatens the essential foundation of the family. Experience and history have shown us that if the government redefines marriage to grant a legal equivalency to same-sex couples, that same government will then enforce such an action with the police power of the State. This will bring about an inevitable collision with religious freedom and conscience rights. The precedent established will leave no room for any limitation on what can constitute such a redefined notion of marriage or human sexuality. We cannot and will not allow this to occur on our watch. Religious freedom is the first freedom in the American experiment for good reason.

Conferring a moral and legal equivalency to any relationship other than marriage between a man and a woman, by legislative or judicial fiat, sends the message that children do not need a mother and a father. As a policy matter, such unions convey the message that moms and dads are completely irrelevant to the well-being of children. Such a policy statement is unconscionable and destructive. Authorizing the legal equivalency of marriage to same-sex couples undermines the fundamental rights of children and threatens their security, stability, and future.

Neither the United States Supreme Court nor any court has authority to redefine marriage and thereby weaken both the family and society. Unlike the Legislative Branch that has the power of the purse and the Executive Branch which has the figurative power of the sword, the Judicial Branch has neither. It must depend upon the Executive Branch for the enforcement of its decisions.

As the Supreme Court acknowledged in the 1992 decision of Planned Parenthood v. Casey, its power rests solely upon the legitimacy of its decisions in the eyes of the people. If the decisions of the Court are not based on the Constitution and reason, and especially if they are contrary to the natural created order, then the people will lose confidence in the Court as an objective arbiter of the law. If the people lose respect for the Court, the Court’s authority will be diminished.

The Supreme Court was wrong when it denied Dred Scott his rights and said, “blacks are inferior human beings.” And the Court was wrong when Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote in Buck v. Bell, “three generations of imbeciles are enough,” thus upholding Virginia’s eugenics law that permitted forced sterilization. Shamefully, that decision was cited during the Nuremburg trials to support the Nazi eugenic holocaust.

In these earlier cases, the definition of “human” was at issue. Now the definition of “marriage” is at issue. The Constitution does not grant a right to redefine marriage — which is nonsensical since marriage intrinsically involves a man and a woman. Nor does the Constitution prohibit states from affirming the natural created order of male and female joined together in marriage.

We will view any decision by the Supreme Court or any court the same way history views the Dred Scott and Buck v. Bell decisions. Our highest respect for the rule of law requires that we not respect an unjust law that directly conflicts with higher law. A decision purporting to redefine marriage flies in the face of the Constitution and is contrary to the natural created order. As people of faith we pledge obedience to our Creator when the State directly conflicts with higher law. We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross this line.

We stand united together in defense of marriage. Make no mistake about our resolve. While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the common good that this is the line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross.

Two Amazing Christmas Videos #ShareTheGift

Comments Off on Two Amazing Christmas Videos #ShareTheGift

Earlier this year we celebrated the marriage of our beautiful – and only – daughter to a charming and handsome young man. It was a perfect day for the uniting of two families – in every way. Every single family member was there, and what a reunion it was. I could hardly believe how the years have yielded such a large group from only two people.

A beautiful thing, a memory forever. Marriage. Family.

I posted a photo here from that perfect day because my family means so much to me and I wanted to share it with you. However, by request from three family members, I have sadly taken it down. Read More

What conservative activists can learn from the Bundy family, Idaho and the Houston Five pastors

Comments Off on What conservative activists can learn from the Bundy family, Idaho and the Houston Five pastors

American Leadership Fund

The Bundy family is ready for Round Two against the federal government and Senator Harry Reid to protect their constitutional right of land ownership in Nevada.

Pastors in Idaho that are standing their ground to protect their church and in Houston and throughout the country have united and declared that they are willing to give their lives if necessary to protect their First Amendment constitutional rights – freedom of religion (not “from”), assembly and basic voting rights.

The courage of the Bundy Family and the Houston Five is informing the many voices who say they are proponents of states’ rights and the U.S. Constitution.

This is a defining moment.  Who are we in this fight, what is our commitment and what are we willing to sacrifice to defend our fundamental rights? Read More

Stand for the Family Conference

Comments Off on Stand for the Family Conference

American Leadership Fund Many organizations have formed that reach different circles of influence and that touch a different aspect of the culture war of which the family is the centerpiece. The Stand for the Family conference is organized by Family Watch International, President Sharon Slater.  It will be in Provo, Utah Friday, September 19, 2014.

Our friend Mary Summerhays, President of Celebration of Marriage has graciously joined together with that event to kick it off the night before Thursday September 18, with a Celebration of Marriage rally at the Capitol.

This is a crucial time for Utah. The legal challenge to its Marriage law is on its way to the U.S. Supreme Court now.  Attorney Frank Mylar filed amicus briefs for American Leadership Fund in the 4th (Virginia) and 10th (Utah and Oklahoma) Circuit Courts where, not surprisingly it was overruled 2-1 by the three-judge panel.

The arguments were without rational basis, which our brief addressed. One questions whether the amicus briefs were even read. This is a shameful state our Courts are in and the only remedy is at the ballot box where we elect representatives that will use the checks and balance measures provided in the U.S. Constitution to correct it. That is why American Leadership Fund exists.  We are now in the U.S. Supreme Court petitioning the Justices to uphold Utah’s Marriage law.

We need your support today.

Meanwhile, what will the U.S. Supreme Court do?

It will either rule against Utah’s law and set the precedent for other states and they will fall like dominoes, or it will rule that this matter is still a state issue and therefore best decided by the state.

In either case, the definition of Marriage is sure to heat up, not go away. We know this because of history.

When Roe v. Wade decided that abortion was legal, pro-Life activists doubled-down and energized the grassroots to immediately put restrictions that court’s decision with the Hyde Amendment and since then limits on when an abortion may take place, especially laws prohibiting partial birth abortion.

The passion for Marriage and maintaining it as the standard that all children need – a mother and a father committed to each other by Marriage – is gaining momentum. Those who seek to define it otherwise lack common sense and logic and should be removed from the Courts.

That is why American Leadership Fund is so important. We are preparing for 2016 because the bottom line of this issue will be determined, not in the Court of law but at the ballot box which is swayed by the Court of Public Opinion.

We urge you to donate today so that we can continue to build and influence to help the best candidates get elected. And then join us at this conference. It has a line up of excellent speakers, many of whom I have worked with over the years and I know them to be credible and to have done significant research in the area of protecting, defending and strengthening the family.  This is our call to action.

Why Aren’t More Mormons Standing Up For Marriage?

mormons-against-prop-8-6I routinely give presentations and communicate by email to business and religious leaders of many faiths across the nation.

Marriage and Common Core Reforms

I love it when he does that because it gives the ideas more traction and I get the opportunity to discuss it more.  He claims that I have no proof.  He must have forgotten to click on the links in the article, which are well-documented.
