Shamefully, here in Iowa, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, US Rep. Marianette Miller-Meeks and U.S. Rep. Ashley Hinson did NOT heed our request but chose instead to vote in favor of HR 8404, the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act.

The bill removes the definition of marriage as “one-man, one-woman, as husband and wife” from the federal code. Ultimately, the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act will further the Left’s agenda of undermining society’s most fundamental building block, the family as defined by God. At the same time, it advances the cause of the secular humanist proponents of immoral behavior to label anyone who refuses to celebrate their sinful lifestyle as haters and bigots with the ultimate goal of silencing, canceling, and punishing them. That is where this is headed if we do not remain vigilant in doing what we can while appealing to the God of Heaven to do what is beyond our control.

This Pastor is grieved and will publicly stand and call out those who are advancing the destruction of marriage and the home.
