I write to ask you to sign two petitions from Citizen Go, pray for their success and disseminate them if you can to your networks of family, friends, church and neighbours.
The first petition supports poor Brendan Eich, whose politically incorrect views and support for traditional marriage cost him his job. That the church essentially ducked and denied this worrying development has at least in part led to the need for the second petition, that protesting JP Morgan Chase's invasive survey to its employees. For those who may not be aware, Morgan Chase is a leading US/global financier. In a recent questionnaire, which includes names, employees are asked if they are "a member of the LGBT community." Separately, they are also asked if they are "an ally of the LGBT community, but not personally identified as LGBT." Of course the writing is on the wall: if they refuse to go along with this agenda, what is the likelihood they will not be paying for it with their jobs?
Indeed, that we are looking at a form of ideological 'ethnic cleansing' in the global world of business cannot be doubted. Starbucks, Burger King and Betty Crocker are just a few of the giants now promoting LGBT rights. If we do not push back, it will soon be too late. We know that when the public cries loud enough things happen But in the main, our side has tended to be passively apolitical and apathetic, which means that activists encounter little resistance as they go from strength to strength.
Please take just a few minutes to sign below.
Blessings on your day and your world, and may God fill both with His comfort and hope.

We do not want joy and anger to neutralize each other and produce a surly contentment; we want a fiercer delight and a fiercer discontent. We have to feel the universe at once as an ogre's castle, to be stormed, and yet as our own cottage, to which we can return to at evening. G K Chesterton
