Christian Coalition Group Pleased With Vote in North Carolina
The Craven-Pamlico Christian Coalition is pleased with the outcome of Tuesday's victory of the Marriage Amendment which was on the primary ballot. The statewide vote was overwhelmingly in favor of defining marriage as that between one man and one woman in the state’s constitution.
“We are thankful for the vote by North Carolinians affirming that, in our state, marriage is between one man and one woman”, said Jerry Schill, Co-Chair of the local Coalition organization and Craven County Coordinator for VoteforMarriageNC.com, a pro amendment grassroots organization.
He continued, “We give the glory to God for the substantial margin of victory giving credence to our state motto, “Esse Quam Videri”, or “To be rather than to seem”.
Schill is hopeful that this issue could be the catalyst for reversing the tendency to eliminate God from our lives in what he terms a “culture war”. “We’ve seen a very prominent movement from that of faith to one of apathy at best, and absolute disdain for God at its worst. As a country we’ve recently seen Bibles removed from military installations and a refusal by local governmental bodies to pray in the name of Jesus. We see the Marriage Amendment victory as a step towards a healing towards our relationship with our God and Savior”.
The Craven-Pamlico Christian Coalition was established in 1994.
