We can make no mistake about it. We are not in some minor tiff or subtle disagreement with those who oppose us. No, we are, without a doubt, in a “culture war.”
Here in Georgia, radical leftists are attacking our fundamental values, undermining the family, and stripping us of basic freedoms.
Earlier this week, we announced our endorsement of Michael Williams for governor. He earned our endorsement by being the candidate who understands that babies are dying, parental rights are under siege, the foundational understanding of God’s design of gender is being attacked, and our right to live out our faith is threatened. Among the candidates, he is the one who is fighting back.
Consider what recently happened in Ohio, a state where Donald Trump won by a larger margin than he did here in Georgia. There, a child was recently taken from his parents because they did not consent to allowing him to undergo “gender-reassignment” hormone therapy. How insane! But, we must know that such radical thinking is here in our state also, and it is gaining ground. That’s why we need bold leaders, like Michael Williams, willing to stand up for what is right!
As we announce other endorsements, this is the criteria that will define our choices. If you are looking for culture warriors to fight for our values here in Georgia, then please consider supporting our efforts.
Legislative Update: Last week, we worked alongside one of our Statesmen Alumni, Senator Chuck Payne to pass legislation to protect the rights of parents, SB 437. This week, we testified of this bill’s importance in House committee.
At the same hearing, we testified about SB 74, a pro-life measure sponsored by Senator Josh McKoon. Opposing us was the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and the Feminists Women’s Health Clinic (an abortion provider). They booed and mocked supporters of the bill, and they cheered every time it was intimated that abortion was the preferred route.
Make no mistake, they want more abortions, and they are hostile to any measure that saves lives. Yes, we are in a culture war.
What to Pray For: The legislative session ends March 29. That is the last opportunity of 2018 to pass pro-family legislation or stop actions that will further erode our freedom. Please be in prayer that the Lord will be glorified as we enter the closing weeks.
For His Glory,
