In a fund raising letter published today Brian Camenker of MassResistance writes, "Mike Heath, another unwavering pro-family leader, led two successful statewide ballot fights against the homosexual movement in Maine. But in 2009, the mushy pro-family establishment declared him to be 'too controversial' and his major donors fell away. Without funding he couldn’t continue running his organization. Then in 2012, the homosexual movement there pushed through their 'gay marriage' referendum."
Truth be told in all the years that I led the Christian Civic League of Maine I was only able to attract two stable major donors. A polite note from one of them in the fall of 2009 hinting that their substantial support would likely stop soon added just one more straw to the pile that was on this camel's back. Within days the camel's back broke. I resigned.
This happened in 2009. In 2005 the "gay" political movement added sexual orientation to the state human rights act. They included "transgendering" in their definition. I think this made Maine the first state to legally give a leg up (sorry) to cross dressers.
In 2009 this evil movement, funded by rich foreigners, set it's sights on destroying marriage in Maine. They came right out of the gate pushing it to a public vote, instead of working their magic in the halls of the State House or the courts. I resigned in September. The vote was held in November. We won.
They kept working. In 2012 they won a statewide vote that destroyed legal marriage in Maine.
Now we have teachers openly proselytizing for sodomy in Maine's elementary schools. And they assured me all those years that it wasn't about the children. They told me they just wanted the right to do whatever they please in the privacy of their bedrooms. Uh huh.
This is a spiritual issue. It sounds trite, but I've come to believe it with all my heart. The solution is a moral revival/reformation. Christians must confront this crisis with the Bible and a whole heart -- spiritually.
When we choose to do so we will reap great rewards from our heavenly father.
The Bible reports in the book of Acts, "Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus."
Professional credentials don't mean much if the end result is the legalizing of sin. What matters for the Christian is that they know Jesus. What matters even more is that they stand publicly with no distance between their reasoning and that of Jesus Christ.
All I want to be known for is having "been with Jesus."
How about you?
