Take a stand.

Just recently, I found out that 

President Obama has instructed Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department to no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in the federal courts.
DOMA passed in 1996 with an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 342-67 in the House and 85-14 in the Senate and was later signed into law by President Bill Clinton. House Speaker John Boehner vows that the House will defend the law.*
Christians need to understand this complicated issue and prepare themselves for another battle in the war over traditional marriage.

Just today, as I was reading through the news, I feel upon an article in response to Pres. Obama's decision:

Just weeks after the Obama administration announced it would no longer legally defend the Defense of Marriage act, some of the president's biggest Hollywood supporters have signed a letter urging him to go a step further and legalize same-sex marriage.
Anne Hathaway, Martin Sheen, Jane Lynch and Ellen DeGeneres are among the actors who have signed an open letter sponsored by Freedom to Marry, a New York-based advocacy group working to promote marriage rights for same-sex couples.**
Can you believe it? Anne Hathaway, along with many other actors we know are urging Obama to support same-sex marriage. 
Can it get worse?

Now, dear readers, I urge you to take a stand. 
Do something to stop this.

Post about these articles on Facebook and blogging. 

Sign the "The Manhattan Declaration" and get more updates on current issues going on in our country.
Blog about Manhattan Declaration.
Read other pieces from those who are taking a stand against this.

For you girls, I encourage you to write Anne Hathaway***. 
For me, I used to admire Anne Hathaway. But her taking a stand for same-sex marriage has really lowered my view of her.
Write her and tell her what you think. Write multiple times. 
Blog about it and encourage others to write.

We may be but one person, but one person is more than none.

Take a stand. 
Tell others.
Don't let this go unanswered.
