WASHINGTON, Nov. 8 /Standard Newswire/-- Rev. Rob Schenck, president of the religiously conservative National Clergy Council and its affiliate, Faith and Action in the Nation's Capital, released this statement today as election results continue to be reported:
"While pro-life, pro-family and pro-acknowledgement of God Americans are disappointed this morning in election outcomes, there is a silver lining in this otherwise dark election cloud. Democrats, who historically have opposed the sanctity of life, the sanctity of marriage and the public acknowledgement of God, none-the-less chose some moral conservatives among their ranks. This lean toward a more conservative Democrat Party is a good thing. There has been need for a moral reformation within the party. While last night's elections don't cure the moral problem in the core of the Democrat Party, it may moderate their previously and ardently pro-abortion, anti-marriage and radically secularist agenda.
A good sign yesterday were the seven clear victories on state amendments defining marriage as between one man and one woman, and the likely passage of another when votes are fully counted.
On the gloomy side, having a speaker of the house--the third person in constitutional succession to the president--who is a radical pro-abortion, pro-homosexual agenda, European-like secularist does make our mission of cultural moral reform difficult.
The National Clergy Council and its lay affiliate Faith and Action, prayerfully recommits itself to being a strong, unapologetic Christian witness to moral truth on Capitol Hill and in every state capital. With faith in God, confidence in the Gospel and great hope for
Today our ministry team sits in on two of the most critical sanctity of life cases to be heard at the Supreme Court since the 1973 Roe v. Wade opinion opening the blood-gates of abortion. Outside the Court our ministry partners will hold a prayer vigil and rally.
In the end, our confidence is not in parties, politicians or judges and justices, but in a God who "changes not." He has preserved His people through terrible periods of ungodly barbarism, fierce persecution and satanic attacks. He will preserve his remnant again! Hallelujah!
Now, back to the battle! Jesus said we must work while it is yet day, for night comes when no man can work! Let's get back to work to the glory of God!"
