Christians will rally in Nashville to espouse the doctrine of the lesser magistrate and propose state government act to shield the citizens in the state from an evil claim from Washington.
The malice in view is the federal supreme court’s pro homosexuality Obergefell v. Hodges opinion that in June proposed to redefine marriage.
The activists behind Tennessee Interposition Day intend to promote the Tennessee Natural Marriage Defense Act to secure the rights of married men and women.
Organizers such as Cal Zastrow will meet Jan. 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the state capitol. The Pody-Beavers bill, named after its sponsors, is HB 1412 and SB 1437. It “gives opportunity for bold legislators to set a course for any and all other lawmakers to interpose, to ‘stand the gap’ between any lawless court and the lawful will of the people.”

Organizers say “Pressure will have to be placed on Gov. [Bill] Haslam and Attorney General [Herbert] Slatery (both Republicans) who have decided to hide behind the fiction that ‘the Supreme Court has ruled – all I can do is obey.’”
The bill quotes Dr. Martin Luther king Jr.’s letter from a Birmingham jail: “How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law.”
