In Virginia legislature, Democrats walk out on black pro-life, defense-of-marriage pastor

Article:




With newly empowered Democrats in the Virginia state house ready to advance legislation lifting abortion restrictions and eager to strengthen protections for those in the LGBT community, Reverend Dr. Robert M Grant, Jr didn't hold back in his opening prayer before the General Assembly Tuesday morning.

In a scathing, biblically based denunciation of same-sex marriage and abortion, the pastor's 6-minute prayer drove some Democrats to walk off the floor and another one to shout out, "Is this a prayer or a sermon?" Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn(D-Fairfax) ultimately broke in by banging her gavel and leading the assembly in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Democrats clearly expected the black clergyman from Warrenton to know his place and deliver an invocation in alignment with their progressive politics. Things didn't go as planned.

Reverend Grant began by urging the politicians "not to provoke God's anger and bring wrath upon this state by what you create as law." He went on to ask why there are so many abortion clinics near black communities and called it "black urban genocide." The deliberate and determined Rev. Grant didn't stop there.

"I pray that you may understand that all life is precious and worthy of a chance to be born," he said, "God is a giver of life and people have no right or authority to take life, the unborn has rights, and those rights need to be protected."

After the pastor advocated for prison reform, he sparked noticeable fury with his remarks on traditional marriage. Before he could finish his prayer that "this chamber will uphold the Virginia family" and "that the bills and laws passed will always protect the biblical traditional marriage as God instructed the first man and woman in the Bible," a heckler shouted out his disgust.

"It was totally disrespectful to all of us in the House," stated the Democrat delegate from Prince William County. Others said it was "off the rails" and "it felt like a condemnation."

Even though Grant had been invited by a Republican delegate from Fauquier County, another Republican sided with the Democrats, "I didn't know if he was ill-instructed or didn't know what he was here to do, " said Del Matt Farris(R-Campbell), but "this wasn't the time or place to do all of that…we need to be working together and not divisive."

It was, imagine that.

Hmm. In general I really dislike people taking advantage of using an opportunity like celebrities do at award ceremonies to press their agenda. Now I do believe in everything the pastor said and Comicrats are such hypocrites because lack of decorum is a trademark of theirs. I am in the minority who has a problem with homosexuality. I not going to do anything about it but as a Christian I have my beliefs. But I would have to know more about this incident but I am inclined to be sympathetic to the pastor...I think.

What the hell has happened to Virginia. From the beginning one of the most important and faithful states in the union, how could things have changed. My father was from the Rockingham County area and I am a Son of Confederate Veterans member. My people from down there were not prejudice and were the kindest Christian ladies and gentlemen I ever knew. I guess things have really changed
