Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr.: The Battle for Marriage Continues

leave a comment »

Bishop Harry Jackson spoke at the Pastor’s Summit on Marriage hosted by the Family Policy Council of West Virginia back in January.  He offered a clarion call to the Church at West Virginia to graciously stand as prophetic voices for culture.  Don’t be surprised if you see Bishop Jackson come back to the Mountain State shortly.

For now, Bishop Jackson is lending leadership to efforts in his own backyard.  About a month ago, the City Council of the District of Columbia adopted a measure that would ratify same-sex “marriages” performed in other jurisdictions.  Bishop Jackson outlines the implications such a measure poses for the rest of the country: 

The bill is scheduled for a final vote. If fully ratified, it then moves to the Congress for review. The review could be as short as 30 days, if uncontested by Congress, or much longer if the bill is challenged. This means that a national congressional debate on gay marriage could begin as soon as this month. Naturally, such a debate would draw citizens from around the nation to contact their congressman.

Read the rest of Bishop Jackson’s piece again sounding the call for churchgoers to stand for marriage.
