OPINION (CBN) – Several members of the Virginia House of Delegates recently turned their backs on a black pastor and walked out of chambers when he prayed against abortion and gay marriage. The Rev. Robert Grant of The Father’s Way Church in Warrenton was invited to lead the opening prayer before the assembly on Tuesday. But his prayer turned into a warning of God’s wrath for laws that violate Biblical principles surrounding the unborn.


“I pray that you may understand that all life is precious and worthy of a chance to be born,” he prayed. “God is the giver of life and people have no right or authority to take life. The unborn have rights and those rights need to be protected. They should never be denied the right to exist, the right to develop or the right to have a family,” he said from the podium.

Grant continued by telling lawmakers, “The word of God has given us a warning: woe to anyone who harms an innocent child. Every one of you sitting here today can guarantee these rights to these little innocent children of Virginia.” “Please do not ignore their little voices. I pray for a heart change today and may the Lord God have mercy upon this leadership,” he went on. READ MORE
