Bush Assures Evangelicals of His Pledge to Defend Marriage

Written by Rev. H.A Bergsma
President Bush forcefully restated his call for passage of a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage to enthusiastic rounds of applause in a speech last week before the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE). Speaking Thursday (March 11) via teleconference displayed on three giant screens in the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colo., Bush was interrupted by applause several times during the NAE's annual convention. "I will defend the sanctity of marriage against activist courts and local officials who want to redefine marriage," the president said. Several prominent evangelicals in Washington, D.C., have told the White House that backing the constitutional amendment is vital to getting Christian voters to turn out on Election Day. NAE convention organizers were aware of their clout. The association boasts a membership that includes 45,000 congregations, with 30 million members. A slogan on the back of the convention program read: "What Can 30 Million Evangelicals Do For America? Anything We Want." The president gave a hearty endorsement to the NAE. "The National Association of Evangelicals was founded 62 years ago with the highest of calling--to proclaim the kingdom of God," he said. "You're doing God's work with conviction and kindness, and, on behalf of our country, I thank you." (From Charisma News Service)

May Bush continue to stand strong on this issue, by the grace of God.
