Largest Hispanic Evangelical Organization Says No to Same-Sex Marriage
We’ve seen that blacks and Hispanics are not getting behind the cultural and moral shift on same-sex marriage. When same-sex marriage is put to a vote at the state level, even in liberal California, same-sex marriage is voted down. It’s rogue and lawless judges have overturned the wise counsel of the voters. Why is the ruling by a single judge more authoritative than the votes of millions of citizens, many of who are highly educated?
The following is from Liberty Counsel:
The board of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference-CONEL unanimously voted to sign the Marriage Pledge. NHCLC-CONEL represents 40,118 Evangelical Hispanic churches in America and about 500,000 in Latin America and Spain.
NHCLC-CONEL is headed by Rev. Samuel Rodriguez. CNN, Fox News, NBC/Telemundo, Time magazine, and The Wall Street Journal have identified Rodriguez as one of the most influential Hispanic evangelical leaders in America.
Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, serves as the Chief Legal Counsel and Vice President of NHCLC-CONEL. Mat Staver and Deacon Keith Fournier co-drafted the Defend Marriage Pledge, which reads in part, “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.”
The Pledge continues: “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.”
