The Muhlenberg story reminds us of how important Christianity was in the founding of the United States. We were led by men who were very outspoken and public about their faith, and Christian pastors were real leaders in the fight for independence and liberty. I think we should all remind our own pastors that they need to be leaders in the current battles, particularly the current moral battle to protect marriage and the traditional family. Unfortunately, many pastors of all denominations are reluctant to speak out forcefully to defend marriage when we are confronted with attacks on it in ballot initiatives or proposed legislation. Christian pastors should be out in front defending marriage that is under attack in legislatures and in the courts.
