Hollywood director and producer Ryan Murphy. . .said he's launching a "multi-million-dollar organization that targets anti-LGBTQ candidates running for office". . .
"In 2020, we're going to create and fund, with corporate sponsorship, a multi-million-dollar organization that targets anti-LGBTQ candidates running for office," he said to more applause, adding that the group is going to target 20 "senate and congressional candidates who think they can get votes by hurting and discriminating against us. . .well, we can get votes too, and we can fight back."
So, if you are pro-family, stand for marriage between a man and a woman, and resist the pressure to give the LGBTQ lobby special rights, then look out! Clearly, this effort will be aimed largely at Christians who are running for a seat in Congress. While the verbal persecution will most certainly come, Christians must graciously stand for the promotion of Biblical marriage and the traditional family. Furthermore, we must stand up for the right to disagree with the LGBTQ lobby.
It is not hate speech to simply disagree with fellow Americans. Unfortunately, LGBTQ adherents long to destroy religious freedom in the country. They despise those who point out their immoral behavior and rebellion against God. They want to squelch free speech and freedom of conscience.
However, religious freedom must be guarded and fought for in the political arena. I encourage you to pray for those who are called of God to serve in high places of government. They are facing great opposition and evidently the battle is about to get more intense.
Ephesians chapter six is so appropriate and says, "having done all to stand, stand therefore" taking to yourself the whole armor of God--especially the shield of faith wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked" (Eph. 6:10-18).
