Yesterday, KOMO NEWS joined other news outlets across the country in carrying the story, "Gay Legislators Having An Impact In Marriage Debates."
America has 7,382 state legislators with 85 of them being openly homosexual.
The news story says, "They are, however, playing an outsized and often impassioned role when the agenda turns to recognizing same-sex couples with civil unions or full marriage rights"
The number of openly homosexual state legislators has increased from 44 in 2003 to 85 at present.
In 2008, KOMO NEWS reported that Washington State had 6 openly homosexual legislators, second only to New Hampshire with 7. So, of 85 nationally, Washington has 6.
Senator Ed Murray has the most tenure and presently serves as Chairman of the very powerful Ways and Means Committee.
He is also committed to redefining marriage. nearly every year he has introduced a bill to create homosexual marriage in the state, including this year.
In 2008 Murray said it should take about 10 years to redefine marriage.
While Seattle First United Methodist church has honored him with their "Social Justice Award," not all in the religious community appreciate his agenda.
Senator Murray has not been timid in lashing out at those who disagree with him. Following an appearance by Pastor Hutcherson at Mt. Si High School, Murray wrote a scathing letter to the Principal Randy Taylor, telling him he should not have had Hutcherson speak at the Martin Luther King event because Hutcherson is "an agent of intolerance and contempt."
Murray has also created some who oppose him for reasons other than his homosexual "marriage" agenda.
You can read that here, I have no comment on that.
Murray and his partners may be playing an "outsized" role in the marriage debate. With a complicit press and a number of uninformed or misinformed legislators, such as former legislator Dale Brandland who said from the floor "they are born that way" as he urged the passage of Murray's SB 5688 last year, they have an advantage---at the moment.
The power of the people and the power of prayer can change things.
Murray and other homosexual activist legislators have said those who oppose homosexual "marriage" are on the wrong side of history.
I would suggest, they are on the wrong side of right. History says every civilized society and every major religion has condemned homosexual behavior and refused to enshrine it into law for more than 5000 years.
Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active.
