Small town leaders across the United States are caving to the pressure. The Human Rights Campaign is a pro-homosexual organization based in Washington, D.C. It has moved into college towns across America to promote sexually immoral lifestyles through activism and by leaning on small town elected officials.

HRC is free to do so, but the actual amount of homosexual activism by citizens in these towns is little to none. While it is true that sympathizers to HRC's cause are out there, what is happening in these instances is the voices of homosexuals are louder than citizens who oppose their chosen lifestyle. I would argue the number of homosexual activists are outnumbered 10 to 1 in small towns across America.  Yet the relatively few pro-gay individuals are relentless in their efforts.

One example would be Starkville, Mississippi, home to Mississippi State University. HRC rallied a handful of supporters from among the liberals and homosexuals that one naturally finds in a college town. It had its sights set on the city council and mayor in hopes of having special homosexual policies passed. In January 2014 the city gave the homosexuals a high five by passing a LGBT friendly policy. At the same time the mayor and city council turned their backs on the majority of its citizens. The Christian values of citizens across Starkville were undermined due to pressure from HRC and a handful of avid homosexuals.

I bear good news today: the Starkville board of aldermen repealed this dangerous policy in a 5-2 vote. Of course, the mayor who supported the homosexual friendly policy is expected to utilize his veto power but with 5 votes needed to override it looks like the repeal to the policy will stand. The values of the citizens in this Mississippi town have won this battle.

This is a prime example of the fact that the homosexual lobby can be defeated. As Christians we should hold tight to our biblical values. As my father, Tim Wildmon, says, “We are for what God is for and against what God is against.” It should be no surprise that committed Christians hold the same views of morality that God holds in the Bible. The good news about God is His word never changes (Proverbs 30:5-6).

There is more good news: God sent Jesus Christ to rescue us from our sin (Luke 19:10).  Consequently, Peter says repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of sins. (Acts 2:38).

Christians, I urge you to continue to fight the good fight and promote righteousness in hopes that sinners will turn to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin.
