GRANT JR.: “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. They are in their trimesters as we speak. Please do not ignore their little voices. I pray for a heart change today and may the Lord God have mercy upon this leadership. I pray that this chamber will uphold the Virginia family, that the bills and laws being passed will always protect the biblical traditional marriage as God instructed, the first man and the first woman in the Bible, that the two shall be one flesh, that a man and a woman shall be fruitful and multiply. We should never rewrite God’s — we should never rewrite what God has declared. If a state wants to use God’s law, then it needs to be respected. If you’re — it’s not yours to change or alter His wording. The Bible is the copyright of God’s word. Marriage is to join a biological male and a biological female in holy matrimony, not to provoke the almighty God. Without laws to protect traditional marriage, Virginia will be reduced to increased fatherless children and welfare victims and homelessness tax burden to us all.”
