CHRISTIAN BOLTONINGTON: We are in the midst of a moral crisis.
The problem is that we don’t understand the problem.
It’s not that we have not taken care of the issue.
The crisis is that there is no way to deal with it.
The church has not been able to respond to the crisis, which is what it is doing.
It has been a victim of its own success.
We have been able in the past five years to get ourselves into the moral crisis that we are in, and that is exactly what we have to do again.
It is the same thing that happened to the Catholic Church.
We are going to have to make another choice in our lives.
We cannot continue to ignore the problem, to let it pass us by and not deal with the issue head-on.
That is what we are doing.
We must take responsibility for our own moral crisis and we have no choice.
CHRISTIAN CHAPMAN: We have to come out of this crisis with the same strength we used to have and the same capacity that we had.
CHRISTIE STEIN: What we have in the United States, for instance, is a huge population of people who are not only not religious, they don’t believe in God.
They are secularists, and they believe in the secular world, they think it’s all fake news and there’s no god.
They think it all happens for a reason, and then it doesn’t.
They do not know what God is, what His name is, or what the meaning of life is.
They have no faith in the power of the Holy Spirit.
They believe they are being cheated out of a good life.
And so, for them, the Church is not the solution.
It doesn’t work, it does not work for them.
It does not help them, because they have no connection to Christ.
They don’t have any faith in His will, or His love.
They really don’t know what Christ is about, and what He means.
They’re not interested in what Christ really means, and therefore they don and cannot believe in Him.
It just does not feel right.
They just want a false, false answer.
CHRISTY STEIN, PRESIDENT, CHRISTIE SELF-INDEPENDENCE PARTY: We want a better life.
It was my job to convince these people that God was there.
They didn’t believe.
They wanted to get back to what they were doing.
CHRISTINE STEIN PARTY’S PROPOSAL: They are not living up to what God intended for them to live.
They did not follow Christ.
And they don.
That was my responsibility.
I took on that task, and I hope you will join me in the fight to get them back to God.
This is the fight.
CHRISTIANS IN BOSTON: We don’t care about the Bible.
We don, and we won’t be persuaded by the Bible or the Church.
It makes no sense to us.
It really does not.
CHRISTINA STEIN’S RESPONSE: This is a crisis that is unique in our country, and it’s something we need to deal.
We will never have the strength to deal effectively with it unless we know what is really going on.
It won’t work.
It will destroy our culture, and the way that we live.
This isn’t about the Church or the Bible, but the way in which we live our lives, and this is something we must change.
CHRISTINES IN COLUMBUS: It’s been a great struggle.
We’ve been working together.
We know how to be compassionate and how to work together.
And we will continue to work to make a difference.
CHRISTICANS IN CHICAGO: This has been the greatest time of our lives and we’ve been able, together, to be the best that we can be.
CHRISTENIS STEIN AND JOHN MCCONNELL: Our church has always been a part of our families.
We love each other.
We’re not in the habit of having disagreements.
It seems like that’s not the case.
We believe that we’re all brothers and sisters in Christ.
CHRISTIES IN LOS ANGELES: I am an American.
This country has a great tradition of free speech, but there are certain issues that the government should not be interfering with, and there are some issues that are really important, but I don’t agree with the way the government is doing it.
We understand it as a political matter, but it’s not about the politics.
It should be about how we live as brothers and as sisters, how we treat one another, how you treat your neighbor.
We need to stand together, and let the government handle it.
CHRISTENS IN LONDON: We’ve got to stand up for our beliefs.
We can’t be silenced by our own country.
We want to be heard
