Family Research Council pleads with Jesus about those 'wicked' transgender soldiers protecting its freedoms


A supposedly Christian organization sends out a public prayer to God. What do you think the prayer would be about?

Safety? Peace? Decent healthcare? Protection against the ills of the world:

Those choices would probably be high on the list if one were talking about a legitimate Christian organization. However, since it's the anti-LGBTQ hate group Family Research Council, the issue de jour is one which the group has been exploiting to spook its supporters and drive up the donations

Transgender men and women in the military:

“Heavenly Father, it is time for you to act, for your law is being broken! This policy must be rejected: it brazenly defies You, God our Creator, and Your fixed, eternal moral laws. We defied your definition of marriage, now we defy the very apex of your created order, mankind created in your own image, male and female. Please forgive us, extend Your mercy to us, and grant us repentance. You who bless nations that obey You, and curse nations that disobey you; You who promise battleground victory to those who obey you, but defeat to all who disobey, have mercy! Grant repentance to President Trump and Secretary Mattis for even considering to keep this wicked policy in place. Grant them understanding, courage, and willpower to stand up to the forces of darkness that gave birth to it and wholly to repeal it. Save our young men and women who are already living under this tyranny. Save our children from the predictable impact of this policy. May Your people not only pray, but rise and use every tool they possess as American citizens to preempt this policy. Please correct the members of Congress who used their votes to enable and fund it. We appeal to You! In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Some things are so silly, so contradictory and downright bizarre that they render me speechless.

That is not a prayer, it's a list of instructions.

It looks like the god they profess to serve is a slacker in need of guidance. He must be told what to notice, what the perceived problem is, reminded that he is powerful, and who he should influence, and how, to bring about the desired result.

In short, this implies that the FRC knows better than their god what should be done and how best to do it. Rather a lofty position to assume for one's self.

I love when people who claim that 'Jesus is Lord!'in one breath turn around and tell Him all the things he's doing wrong, or not well enough...like a parent trying to shame a toddler into saying 'thank you'...
