Left Trying To Revive Equal Rights Amendment To Get Abortion In The Constitution by Anne Schlafly Cori and Kristan Hawkins - "Should ERA win passage, the result would be a dramatically empowered federal government on issues it decides impact women. That's a threat to women, not a protection."

And it did just that. The series featured professional athletes, movie stars, politicians and civil rights leaders. And look where we are today."

A number of years ago, did formulate a statement on the ERA:

Equal Rights Amendment
WHEREAS, Congressional sponsors of the proposed equal rights amendments to the Constitution of the United States have refused to reveal clearly their intent regarding the application of this amendment to abortion, arguing instead that the federal courts will have to make such determinations; and

WHEREAS, Groups favoring public funding of abortion have argued in state courts that an equal rights amendment to the state constitution mandates public funding of abortion; and

WHEREAS, Groups favoring abortion have claimed that the proposed equal rights amendment to the United States Constitution would lead to the invalidation of abortion funding restrictions and other abortion-related legislation; therefore be it

RESOLVED That Lutherans For Life opposes any equal rights amendment which discriminates against the preborn, who are most in need of legal protection to secure an equal right to life.

A Lack of Judgment? - Why Hell Still Belongs in a Christian Worldview by John Stonestreet & G. Shane Morris - "If you think of American Christianity as a pendulum, we’re currently at the opposite extreme from the First Great Awakening. When Jonathan Edwards preached his famous sermon, 'Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,' he compared human beings with spiders, dangling by a thread over the fires of God’s just judgment, upheld only by His mercy. Accounts from the time tell of listeners who clung to the pillars of their churches, lest they fall through the floor into the Lake of Fire. Like I said, we’re no longer in this territory these days."
