Gay Marriage – Fox Carolina Interview with McKrae Game

Fox Carolina

ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Robert Carver and John Griffin have been a couple for 33 years, and they said they were “ecstatic” to learn they could soon make that union legally binding, possibly this week.

“I just wanted to cry,” said Robert Carver.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to not hear appeals in five states is opening the door for the legalization of same-sex unions in North and South Carolina as both states’ bans are directly affected by the same appellate ruling that came down in Julywhen Virginia’s same-sex ban was overturned.

Carver and Griffin live in Buncombe County, where officials said may start allowing same-sex marriages in a matter of days.

South Carolina’s potential for allowing same-sex marriages is still pending,according to the State Attorney General. Many in the state still oppose same-sex marriage for religious reasons, including McKrae Game, president of Hope for Wholeness Network.

“Yes, I am opposed to same sex marriage, because it does not go along with a Biblical framework,” said Game, whose organization works with people who struggle with what they call “same-sex attraction” and choose not to act on it.

Game, who said he left the gay lifestyle in 1991, said he was able to do so through his faith in Jesus Christ.

“I still have same sex attractions, but it’s not how I define myself,” said Game.

Game said he is married to a woman, and while his organization does not protest gay pride parades or festivals, it does not support same-sex marriage.

Carver and Griffin said with Monday’s decision, they will no longer be “second-class citizens.”

Shuree – Be The Change  Click to watch/listen

From the album Be The Change (Single)

Turn on the TV
Everything is empty
So sick and tired of the rotten junk they’re feeding me
Selling us a pack of lies
They must think we lost our minds
When we gonna stop buying what they’re pushing down the line
Don’t don’t be fooled
Don’t don’t be fooled
It won’t be different till we start unleashin’
The the truth
Let it loose go

Be the change
That you want to see
Don’t be afraid to be
The change
He started inside of you
Now let it shine through

Be the change
Live like your made to be the change

Inhaling this mess
You’re breathless
To scared to speak up you’re feeling powerless
Being cool ain’t always right
You don’t have to compromise
Do you hear his truth inside roaring in you like a lion
Be be be fierce
Be be be fierce
Stand up and take a swing risk everything

Be the change
That you want to see
Don’t be afraid to be
The change
He started inside of you
Now let it shine through

Be the change
Live like your made to be the change

Lead the way to His light that won’t burn out
To His love that laid it down
To His hope that leads the way
To His light that won’t burn out
To His love that laid it down
To His hope that leads the way
So we can be the change

Monster Lyrics
from Awake (Deluxe)

“Monster” is track #13 on the album Awake (Deluxe). It was written by Brown, Gavin / Cooper, John.

The secret side of me I never let you see
I keep it caged, but I can’t control it
So stay away from me, the beast is ugly
I feel the rage and I just can’t hold it

It’s scratching on the walls, in the closet, in the halls
It comes awake, and I can’t control it
Hiding under the bed, in my body, in my head
Why won’t somebody come and save me from this, make it end.

I feel it deep within, it’s just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I’ve become, the nightmare’s just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I, I feel like a monster.
I, I feel like a monster.

My secret side I keep hid under lock and key
I keep it caged, but I can’t control it
‘Cause if I let him out he’ll tear me up, break me down
Why won’t somebody come and save me from this, make it end.

I feel it deep within, it’s just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I’ve become, the nightmare’s just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster.

I feel it deep within, it’s just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

It’s hiding in the dark, it’s teeth are razor sharp
There’s no escape for me, it wants my soul, it wants my heart
No one can hear me scream, maybe it’s just a dream
Maybe it’s inside of me, stop this monster

I feel it deep within, it’s just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I’ve become, the nightmare’s just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I feel it deep within, it’s just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I’ve gotta lose control, he something radical
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster.
