Tony Perkins, leader of the hate group known as the Family Research Council, is very upset that the very tall Empire State Building became so very colorful after the New York marriage vote the other night:
People at the Empire State Building said it was a coincidence. Officials explained that it takes hours to change the lights. But there was no mistaking the message Friday night when the highest point in the city lit up like a towering rainbow, its colors blazing across the New York skyline. Like a warning flare, the reds and blues and greens exploded over the city, announcing the arrival of same-sex “marriage” to the world. Overnight, New York had become a beacon in the fight for family–a symbol of people who had lost their way.
When the law goes into effect next month, New York will be the sixth and largest state to shatter the definition of marriage in America.
Despite all of the disappointment, God is on the move. Regardless of how things appear, never doubt that He is at work behind the scenes. Rainbow colors may cut through the New York night, but shadows are where you and I are called to shine. The world takes advantage of the darkness, but only the church can set it ablaze. “Arise… for your light has come… See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” (Isaiah 60:1-3)
Pretty colors mean bad gays, but the bloody red-hued light of Tony Perkins’ astonishing hatred and bigotry will live to shine another day, at least as long as the mainstream networks continue to invite him on to give the “I Bought David Duke’s Mailing List” viewpoint on things.
