The Family Research Council is continuing to offer model prayers for their followers to recite to beg God to change the minds of the Supreme Court justices so they uphold states laws banning same-sex marriage. And now they’re on to the Jewish justices. You’re gonna love this.
Pray that Justice Alito will hold fast to his integrity on the matter of marriage. Pray that he will be even stronger than in the past, and that he will be a powerful influence on his colleagues. May each of these Justices be reminded of the truths of their own faith tradition and teaching. For those of Jewish faith, may they consider the clear teaching of Genesis on marriage (1:26-28; 2:18-25) and of Leviticus on homosexual behavior (18:22; 20:13). For those of Catholic faith, may they consider the words of the Lord Jesus, who quoted Genesis on marriage between one man and one woman and concluded: “What God, therefore, hath joined together, let not man put asunder” (Mt 19:6) and the words of Saint Paul on homosexual behavior, which is a sin people can repent of and be delivered from by the grace of God (Rom 1:26-27, 1 Cor 6:9-10; 1 Tim 1:8-10). May each consider that the Founders, who firmly opposed homosexual behavior, would never have imagined that the founding documents even suggested any right to same-sex “marriage,” and therefore no legitimate interpretation of the Constitution should confer special status to those who engage in it. May the Holy Spirit awaken a fear of God in each of the Justices, reminding them of the truths of Scripture. May their consciences be stirred and may their ruling serve to re-awaken the consciences of all Americans that we should view marriage between one man and one woman as a sacred union that should be protected and encouraged by government.
For the record, here’s that second verse they cite:
If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
So they’re praying for the Jewish justices to remember that Leviticus commands them to stone gay people to death. Because that’s not too fucked up or anything.
