A South Carolina state senator denounced the celebration of homosexuality in the White House and across the country during an impassioned speech today on the Senate floor. “I heard our president sing a religious hymn [at the Charleston church funeral], and then Friday night, I watched the White House [be] lit up in the abomination colors,” Sen. Lee Bright lamented. “It’s time for the church to rise up. It’s time for the state of South Carolina to rise up.”

The senator made his remarks during a debate about whether the Confederate flag should be removed from the state capitol building. “Romans chapter one is clear; the Bible is clear,” Bright declared. “This nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and they are under assault by men in black robes who are not elected by you. We’ve got to make a stand. … Let’s deal with the national sins that we face today.” FULL REPORT
