Years ago, New York Governor Mario Cuomo made national news when he said he wouldn’t allow his personal views on abortion—which were consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church—to interfere with the growth of the abortion industry in his state.
His statement tickled the ears of his liberal constituents who voted to keep him in office. Yet, what he was saying was essentially, “I will do anything—including violate my own values—to stay in power.” Is that the kind of leadership we need in America today?
While this approach may still be true in some quarters, I assure you that the Left is more brazen, more bold, and more tenacious about electing people who will most assuredly align their positions with their agenda and make no apologies about it.
For proof, I draw your attention to the Victory Fund, who recently announced their support and endorsement of 36 LGBTQ candidates around the nation. Their goal is to raise funds to increase the number of gay and transgender politicians serving at all levels of office.
Politicians who are required to promote their agenda—an agenda that seeks to put Christian bakers, florists and photographers out of business and an agenda that tries to shut down Christian adoption agencies rather than provide more opportunities for children to be placed in forever families.
An agenda that stands opposed to the values you and I stand for – the values we teach to our children and grandchildren.
That means… it’s game on for us!
That’s why I‘m asking for your financial help today to help us elect pro-family Statesmen across the nation. Your continued support enables us to identify, train and elect men and women who will stand for your values—not make the Cuomo defense!
Over the past three years, you have enabled us to launch our Statesmen Academy™—a program of our sister organization, Family Policy Foundation®, where men and women learn principled public service and stand firm for family values regardless of the personal consequences. To date, we have trained over 80 men and women from 30 states, many serving in the ministry of public office at the local, state and federal levels.
In fact, just this past year, one of our Statesmen advanced legislation protecting Christian adoption agencies from being forced to place children in homes opposed to their—and the birth mothers’—religious convictions. This legislation passed in Kansas and now stands as a model for the nation. This win was declared by the Left as their “biggest defeat” of the year! You made that happen!
Your support helps us keep Statesmen and other pro-family leaders in office! And we have a proven track record to do just that on your behalf.
In this year’s primaries, we helped 45 pro-family candidates win their races! In many of these races, a win in the primary means a win in the general. Yet, your support today helps us increase those chances as we work around the nation with our 40-plus state allies.
So, my friends, you can see that it’s truly game on! It’s clear that those opposed to your values are stepping up their game.
That’s why Family Policy Alliance—with your generous support—works to train and elect Statesmen, advance pro-family policy and strengthen an alliance of over 40—someday 50—state-based organizations, all working toward a nation where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive and life is cherished.
Right now, your gift will be DOUBLED up to $130,000 to support candidates who uphold your biblical values and rally pro-family voters to the polls who might not vote without your encouragement!
