Christian leaders , Pastor Stephen E. Broden, the president of Protect Life And Marriage Texas Bishop Jim Lowe, the pastor of Guiding Light Church in Birmingham, Ala., and I agree: Our youth, children, and families are understandably devastated by the recent killings. We pray for the loss of the families of the men shot by police personnel in Louisiana and Minnesota. Their lives matter very much to us and to God. Humanity, every human life matters. We call for a moratorium on violence and immediate investigations into these deaths.
Giving a pro-life perspective on "Black Lives Matter," Pastor Borden urges: "These shootings are horrifying and shocking to our sense of justice and fairness. Something is terribly wrong when the police are operating out of fear with power to kill people. These recent killings are precipitated out fear, fear of black men, and fear of police by blacks. Our culture and society are in big trouble if we don’t come to realize all lives matter from the womb to the tomb. We will see an ugly result for our communities, our nation if we don’t stop this mistrust of one another. Professional agitators will use these recent incidences to foster hate and conflict between black communities and police personnel across our nation."
Bishop Lowe insists: "Violence against any human being must be resisted religiously. Violence is abhorrent to God and nature! Even as Dr. Martin Luther King did during his lifetime, we are calling for one voice against violence against human beings."
My children and grandchildren are devastated at the recent and mounting deaths of their peers by violent treatment of their peers from law enforcement personnel who should be protecting our communities rather than using force to eliminate more and more young people. This issue transcends race; this is war on life.
Our children are dying from human trafficking, abortion, mass incarcerations, poverty, drugs, racism, sexually transmitted diseases, abuse, assaults and many other evils. It's time to repent and save our children.
As leaders we agree that life is sacred to God from conception until natural death.
My Uncle MLK once said: “When we truly believe in the sacredness of human personality, we won’t exploit people, we won’t trample over people with the iron feet of oppression, we won’t kill anybody.”
Leaders who represent thousands of likeminded concerned citizens agree that it is time for America to resist violence, repent and pray!
We also agree that prayers for our nation and our world, in the midst of all the domestic and global upheaval, are needed. We are calling for leaders across the nation to join us in taking direct action to stop the violence.
We need to remember that God's love and natural law trumps human nature, martial law, and common law. #Godslovematters.
