Family Research Council's "I Stand Sunday"
I Stand Sunday, another Family Research Council event. One sees the usual right wing patriotism, "America as Christian nation" themes and focus on homosexuals.
Have you heard about the pastors in Houston who had the homosexual mayor try to subpoena them? The culture wars continue at full froth. One pastor says "Let the people vote!". One refers to raising "his standard of righteousness." Even the "right wing" pastors sound like how old left-wing pastors use to sound, you know like the ones where politics came first instead of the gospel? "The vote will fix everything"....well we have heard that one before.
Lately I am rethinking voting at all, even on the local level and for my proverbial "dogcatcher", you think about the growing political control even on local and smaller levels of government. My heart felt weary after this last election. I found myself wondering if there was going to be some kind of agenda with those pastors and seeing them hang out with the Family Research Council disturbs me.
"Host Tony Perkins joins the “Houston [sic] 5:” Steve Riggle, Hernan Castano, Magda
Hermida, Khanh Huynh, Dave Welch and attorney Andy Taylor"
Hey do you notice that Vision America logo on the spinning cube on the lower left hand side on the videos? Notice the red pyramid and EU flag looking "Mary" stars? It looks like another Dominionist group.
"Our mission is to inform, encourage and mobilize pastors and their congregations to be proactive in restoring Judeo-Christian values to the moral and civic framework in their communities, states, and our nation. "
Mike Huckabee spoke and the event was supported by Ted Cruz. Catholic Rick Santorum was there as well and Rick Scarborough.
