Faith and Family Day: Jonathan Saenz (Religious Liberty Amendment)


"The first one to plead his cause seems right,
Until his neighbor comes and examines him."
Proverbs 18:17

Texas State Capitol -- Jonathan Saenz of Texas Values spoke about religious liberty and marriage:





Highlights:

  • Started to see this local stuff a couple years ago.
  • Other side is trying to wear us down.
  • "What happens at the local level is really important."
  • The case that got him involved in this work is one of the ones that inspired God's Not Dead.
  • "Religious freedom is under attack like never before."
  • SJR 10 - Religious Liberty Amendment.
  • "I'm not sure what we have in statute is enough."
    • Constitutional amendment = More protection.
  • Beat the old Austin C.C. to defend crisis pregnancy centers.
    • But it took two years.
  • "The time is now to do something lasting."
  • Redefining marriage is a threat to religious liberty.
  • Why should we wait another year and a half to address religious liberty?!?
