Christian Groups Still Fundraising Against Gay Marriage

| by Michael Allen

Before the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage was legal in the U.S., several Christian groups asked followers to donate money to stop it from happening.

However, even though same-sex marriage is now the law of the land, some of these groups are apparently still fundraising against gay marriage.

As far back as 2010, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported that Focus on the Family's political arm CitizenLink "spent millions fighting against gay marriage, gay unions and the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell."

Today, CitizenLink put a new banner (pictured above) on their website asking for donations and included this text:

Ruling 5-4, the U.S. Supreme Court says that same-sex marriage is a "right."

This historic court case is about much more than just the institution of marriage. It's also about religious freedom. The Supreme Court's ruling in favor of same-sex marriage will amost certainly open the door to an all-out assault on religious liberty — including YOURS.

That's why we're asking you to join CitizenLink to help save both the God-ordained institution of marriage AND religious freedom by giving as generously as you can right now

CitizenLink doesn't say how on their website they're going to save the "God-ordained institution of marriage," but does mention pushing more religious freedom bills similar to the one in Indiana, which originally allowed Christian businesses to discriminate against gay people before it was amended.

Stuart Shepard, a host of the CitizenLink Internet broadcast (video below), admitted today, "As we've been expecting for many months, the Supreme Court has redefined marriage in all 50 states."

However, CitizenLink has been fundraising hard for months promising to fight gay marriage.

Another Christian group, NOM (National Organization for Marriage), also admitted they knew gay marriage was going to win in the U.S. Supreme Court, reports Mediaite.com.

Brian Brown of NOM, wrote on the group's website, "Though expected, today’s decision is completely illegitimate. We reject it and so will the American people."

NOM's donation web page states, "Support the fight to protect marriage and the faith communities that support it."
