Reasonable accommodation for conscience on marriage

Oct 10, 2014 by

Dear marriage supporter, C4M remains a voice for those who continue to believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.

This is needed to prevent those who believe in traditional marriage having their beliefs further trampled on by the same-sex marriage lobby. Reasonable accommodation for conscience is needed now. Is that so...

As the dust settles, our road is clear

Oct 8, 2014 by

US READERS – PLEASE TAKE ACTION: By now you will already surely have heard the news from yesterday that the Supreme Court elected not to take any of the pending marriage cases contesting the issues of the right of self-determination in government and the purview of the states to regulate marriage. Before I say anything more, I must be emphatic about this: we are not shaken in our resolve or diverted from our cause by this development—not one bit! Indeed, we see this as an emphatic call...
