The gay and lesbian lobby in Indiana has made it perfectly clear that they are not satisfied with the “fix,” and are now working hard to pass sexual orientation, gender identity (SOGI) laws around the state of Indiana with the ultimate goal of passing a statewide SOGI. People of faith know what this means. It is an attack on religious liberty. It’s a direct attack on people of faith.

Our Republican super-majority has chosen to remain silent when asked if they are willing to protect religious liberty in the State of Indiana, by voting NO to any attempt to pass a SOGI. Pastors gathered in mass a few months ago to publicly ask this question Now it’s time for you, the constituents to ask them the same question.

Call your Representative (574-232-9600), Senator (317-232-9400), and the Governor (317-232-4567), and ask them this question.

“Will you protect my God-Given religious liberties by opposing all efforts to create a special-protected class status for sexual orientation and gender identity?”

If they can’t answer it with a yes or no, then we have a problem.

Let us know what you find out!

Pastors, mark your calendars!  Draw the line in the stand and defend religious liberty! The Indiana Pastors Alliance is hosting a training day to teach you how to best articulate the issues of Religious Liberty in today’s culture.

Unite together on October 31st in Crown Point Indiana. For more details go to www.indianapastorsalliance.com.

Heads up Goshen Indiana, your city council is tackling this first followed closely by the Elkhart city council! Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity will be debated at the Goshen city council level at the beginning of August.

In this video, Litigation Counsel Christiana Holcomb discusses sexual orientation, gender identity ordinances, what they mean, and their effects.  After you watch it, call your city council member and tell them to vote NO on any sexual orientation, gender identity law.

Several council members are mocking those who oppose this ordinance and stating none of this will happen…that it is a harmless ordinance. They are willing to put our children at risk in order to appease the lobbyists who are spending millions of dollars to pass these ordinances city by city, county-by-county, and eventually passing a statewide SOGI… all at the cost of our children and our religious freedom.

As stated by the Alliance Defending Freedom,

“To date, these ordinances have been relied on to try to force Christian bakersphotographers, and florists to create expression celebrating same-sex weddings, and a Christian-owned print shop to print shirts for a gay pride festival, even when doing so went against their deeply held beliefs.  They have even been used to threaten ordained ministers with jail time if they were unwilling to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies.

The threats these ordinances pose will not forever remain in the for-profit sector, however. In fact, these ordinances are already spilling over into the non-profit sector.

We have documented story after story where personal liberty and privacy no longer exists.  I document many of these stories in my blog entitled “Mommy, there is a Man in my Bathroom”. It’s time to step up and say NO.  WE do not want a SOGI passed in our town!

Here are the  local City Councilmen/women in Goshen.

Kristian Stanfill – Even So Come Lyrics

From the album Passion: Even So Come

All of creation
All of the earth
Make straight a highway
A path for the Lord
Jesus is coming soon

Call back the sinner
Wake up the saint
Let every nation shout of Your fame
Jesus is coming soon

Like a bride waiting for her groom
We’ll be a Church ready for You
Every heart longing for our King
We sing
Even so come
Lord Jesus, come

Even so come
Lord Jesus, come

There will be justice
All will be new
Your name forever
Faithful and true
Jesus is coming soon

Like a bride waiting for her groom
We’ll be a Church ready for You
Every heart longing for our King
We sing
Even so come
Lord Jesus, come

Even so come
Lord Jesus, come

So we wait
We wait for You
God, we wait
You’re coming soon

So we wait
We wait for You
God, we wait
You’re coming soon

Like a bride waiting for her groom
We’ll be a Church ready for You
Every heart longing for our King
We sing

Like a bride waiting for her groom
We’ll be a Church ready for You
Every heart longing for our King
We sing

Even so come
Lord Jesus, come

Even so come
Lord Jesus, come

Even so come
Lord Jesus, come

Even so come
Lord Jesus, come

“You Are God Alone”

You’re not a God created by human hands
You’re not a God dependent on any mortal man
You’re not a God in need of
Anything we can give
By Your plan, that’s just the way it is[Chorus:]
You are God alone, from before time began
You were on Your throne, You are God alone.
And right now, in the good times and bad
You are on Your throne, You are God alone.

You’re the only God whose power none can contend
You’re the only God whose name and
Praise will never end
You’re the only God who’s worthy
Of everything we can give
You are God, that’s just the way it is

[Bridge:]
You’re unchangeable (Unchangeable)
Unshakable (Unshakable)
Unstoppable (Unstoppable)
That’s who you are (That’s who you are)
