Late yesterday afternoon Representative Daryl Metcalfe sent out a Co-sponsorship Memoranda asking for co-sponsors to a resolution “Urging Governor Corbett to Defend State’s Rights.”
The memo outlines Judge Jones’ usurpation of power and Governor Corbett’s decision not to appeal Jones’ decision as “a harmful precedent.” It also notes that last June’s US Supreme Court ruling in United States v. Windsor affirms that the “federal government may not interfere with a state’s definition or regulation of marriage http://libertyactioncenter.com/campaign/53900ce9-4a64-4133-b9f7-2a7932741282

Politico is right: gay marriage will destroy the Republican Party
Yesterday, Politico featured a David Lampo piece, Gay Marriage Will Destroy the GOP. Politico is exactly right that gay marriage will destroy the GOP, but for precisely the opposite reason Lampo imagines.
Lampo’s argument is that if the GOP does not embrace gay marriage, it is doomed. The truth of the matter is exactly the opposite: embracing gay marriage will doom the GOP and consign it to the ash heap of history.
Politico wants us to believe the tide of history is inevitable, and the GOP either must get on board the gay love boat or get swept out to sea where it will disappear beneath the waves.
It would be one thing if Politico had the best interests of the Republican Party at heart, but it does not.
It’s almost amusing to see these wingerleft extremists wring their hands and furrow their brows with such anxiety that the GOP might be harming itself. They care so much, you see, they are even willing (continue reading)
Below you can read a press statement we just released to the media to express our dismay at the decision by Gov. Tom Corbett not to appeal yesterday’s court ruling redefining marriage in Pennsylvania.
We have pulled out all the stops to get your message to Gov. Corbett and his top staff. I urge you to continue to call, write and email Gov. Corbett to express your disappointment at his decision, and encourage him to reconsider. As stated below, one unelected judge should not become the de facto legislature and governor in Pennsylvania and impose his redefinition of marriage on all of us.
Gov. Corbett should and must take up the mantle and fight for marriage between one man and one woman, which he says he still believes in. Appealing the court decision is how to demonstrate that.
In the meantime, I assure you that on your behalf we are looking at every avenue to protect marriage, to defend it in the media and the public, and to prepare, should Judge Jones’s decision stand, to fight to protect your religious liberty and the rights of families of children in Pennsylvania.
Please take time to contact Gov. Corbett, your state representative and senator, and pray.
Michael Geer, President
P.S. Please keep up the contacts to the Governor’s office. And if you are able, we could use your most generous contribution at this critical time as we partner with you in defense of marriage. DONATE HERE
P.P.S We have resources available for pastors and churches who want to continue to promote marriage. Visit http://www.pafamily.org/pastors.
PHILADELPHIA—A Federal judge this afternoon struck down Pennsylvania’s Defense of Marriage Act—deciding that same-sex marriage will no longer be banned in the state.
Judge John Jones III ruled to strike down the Act in the case of Whitewood v. Wolf, which was filed last summer in U.S. District Court in the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
“In a continuing trend of federal judicial activism, the court has arrogantly assumed the right to supersede the constitutional right of the states,” said Sam Rohrer, President of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network (PPN, http://www.papastors.net) and the American Pastors Network (APN, http://www.AmericanPastorsNetwork.net). “This should scare anyone who loves freedom because by its action, the federal court has overruling the constitutional right of the states to determine this issue or any other issues for themselves.
“While this case specifically concerned marriage, one thing is for sure: God hasn’t changed His definition of marriage, (continue reading)
If the family crumbles, the society crumbles. #1 determiner of economic status of American is if you are married or not. Family comes from greek word which means home. We need to reclaim and promote marriage.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
