Tonight we interview David Smith. He comes to us from the Illinois Family Institute. http://illinoisfamily.org/ David offers us an update on the legislative efforts underfoot to change our way of life and what he is doing about it.
We all love the song, “God Bless America”. Yet, will God keep blessing us when our nation is passing laws every day that throw Biblical principles out of our culture? There is a wave of cultural change in our country striking at the bedrock of our society. The family is under attack. Even if your state supports marriage (one man and one woman), your city might be passing laws to unravel the marriage laws your state passed. The American way of life is inseparably intertwined with Judeo-Christian ethics.
When University City was trying to find a way to reward immorality in their city, I went to the City Council Meeting to speak out about this ordinance. Unfortunately, we were terribly outnumbered. Yet, we must never give up the fight for the soul of our communities.
A lot of folks give up if they focus on the observable results. As you can see from the photo, I was surrounded by the opposition, naysayers and people who are mocking our values. Even those in the Republican Party are now conflicted over whether they should continue to hold to their own platform.
