The Stewardship Foundation is in the news? No, at least not directly. However, we exist because we specifically believe in the sanctity of life, traditional marriage, and religious freedom. The latter is tearing up the recent headlines. Liberals celebrated when Pope Francis seem to soften his approach to gays and lesbians, “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” And more recently, Indiana Governor Mike Pence is headline news with the proposed Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
To help our readers stay informed, we’re passing along a couple of recent articles that we believe present some semblance of unbiased sanity.
CNN (subject of allegations of liberal bias) published an article Indiana’s religious freedom law: What you need to know. What caught my eye was the comment by CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, “The only reason these law have passed is because of same sex marriage.
The Weekly Standard posted social media comments from Ashton Kutcher and Hillary Clinton, and other celebrities, politicians and journalists who are absolutely outraged saying that this law is a “license to discriminate against gay people.”
If indeed CNN’s Toobin is correct, same sex marriage is the driving force behind the outrage. As Christians, we live in perilous times. Pope Francis calls us not to be “tempted by confusing presentation of sexuality, marriage and the family” which he says are “under attack from powerful forces which threaten to disfigure God’s plan..” As Cardinal, he called same-sex marriage “anti-value and destructive to the plan of God – the envy of the devil.”
If the outrage over Indiana’s bill (here in its entirety) is not an example of evil at work in our world today, nothing is. Pray for America and its people in these times, and use the power of your purse to support charitable organizations that defend our religious liberty and God’s plan for creation.
