SUPPORT LIFE WITH “CHOOSE LIFE” LICENSE PLATES. Want to support the work of the pregnancy resource centers in our state?  A new specialty license plate, called the “Choose Life” plate, became available this month at Idaho DMVs.

Proceeds from the sale of the license plate will be distributed to pro-life pregnancy clinics providing compassionate care and practical assistance to women facing unplanned pregnancies.

Your display of these license plates on your vehicle would spread a loving, positive pro-life message of hope and help provide pregnant women with medical, financial, and spiritual support. You can purchase your “Choose Life” specialty license plate at your local DMV or online at www.itd.idaho.gov.

 

PRAY WITH US. This week marked the start of the 2021 Idaho Legislative Session. Just as in the past, Family Policy Alliance of Idaho will be at the Capitol this year, making your voice heard by advocating for the values we hold dear.

Will you join us in prayer?

Heavenly Father, we pray for our country and our state, following your direction to pray for our civil leaders and all those in authority (1 Tim. 2:2).

We pray that our legislators will faithfully discharge their oaths of office, upholding our constitution and protecting the liberty you have given us. Help them to defend the sanctity of life and preserve our freedom to live, work, and raise our children according to your Word.

Extend your saving arm to those legislators who don’t yet know you. Send revival to our state and to our nation, good and gracious God. May saving knowledge of you spread throughout this land, bringing glory to your awesome name (Habakkuk 2:14).

In the name of your Son, our Lord and Savior, amen.

 

GREAT NEWS FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY! A prosecuting attorney has dropped charges against Gabriel Rench, a deacon at Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho, who was arrested and jailed last September.

Rench had attended a church “psalm sing” event when he failed to comply with social distancing and mask mandates that are part of the city public health emergency order. Family Policy Alliance of Idaho covered the incident at the time, as did national commentators like Laura Ingraham and Glenn Beck.

The case against Rench was dropped this week because the emergency order included an exemption for constitutionally protected activities, including free speech, free assembly, and religious activity.

Rench and Christ Church deserve our thanks for standing up to the unconstitutional emergency order in his city and winning. The outcome of this case provides some good news for Idahoans concerned about defending our constitutional rights!
