New York City’s religious right is not just a new religious movement.
It’s a new political movement, one that has been gaining traction in the past year or so.
The most recent sign of its power is the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, a decision that has sparked a wave of political activity across the country.
The movement is now a full-blown political force, with Republican politicians taking up the cause.
As the New York Times reported last month, the GOP is pushing for religious liberty bills in statehouses across the U.S. The bill would allow the government to refuse to provide marriage licenses to same-gender couples, with the goal of encouraging Christians to be more vocal in opposing same-day marriage.
The move, which came after several prominent Christian leaders spoke out against same-date marriage, was welcomed by the GOP’s leading leaders.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), a prominent leader of the Religious Liberty Caucus, said, “We are in the midst of a cultural and religious revolution.”
On Wednesday, the New Testament church and Bible-based religion leaders, including former presidential candidate and New York Gov.
Mike Pence, issued a statement in support of same sex marriage.
“It is my hope that our country can find its way to the final end,” the church leaders wrote.
“Our Bible teaches us that the state is the cornerstone of our government and that we are all one people.”
In a statement released Wednesday, Gov.
Pence also praised the New Hampshire-based group of pastors who led a call for a state constitutional amendment banning same-duties marriages, writing, “These leaders have demonstrated how to win in the political arena and to inspire faith in a nation divided on the issue of marriage.”
