Is Anybody Listening?

Charles Colson, in a BreakPoint column, issued an alarmed call to action to the nation's Christians: "We ARE going to have legalized gay "marriage" in the United States unless Christians and others speak up strongly." Colson told of meeting a group of senior congressional staffers on Capitol Hill, who told him they were greatly alarmed by the lack of support for the Federal Marriage Amendment. No senator, they told him, was reporting any unusual number of calls or emails on the subject. "Where are the Christians?" Colson asked. "Why aren't they bombarding the news media, and especially their congressional delegates, with emails and phone calls?" "This is the best opportunity we'll ever have to get this amendment," Colson emphasized. All of the House seats and one-third of the Senate seats will be up for grabs this year, "and in an election year a vote against the Marriage Amendment could hurt politically." And, of course, President George W. Bush favors the amendment. Yet instead of pressing our advantage, we seem indifferent. What's it going to take to get all of you good people to get on the telephones to call your congressmen, Senators, state legislators, and other public officials to say, We want to protect marriage!' He urged Christians to contact their senators and congressmen every week until the amendment passes. To contact your U.S. Senators and/or Representative call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121.
