|“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer|
In November of 2020, Chuck Schumer declared the strategy of the political Left – “now we take Georgia, then we change the world.”
What kind of change did Schumer have in mind? In the months since liberals “took Georgia,” it’s meant a major push for federal funding for abortion, an order to redefine biology in our schools – denying the fact of gender – and an all-out attack on state election integrity laws.
That’s just the beginning, and that’s just the federal level.
In Georgia various school boards and liberal fringes are trying to impose Critical Race Theory on our kids.
The education institutions are opposing efforts to get obscenity out of our schools.
The Chamber of Commerce and “Big Medicine” worked to oppose basic human dignity “Right to Visit” legislation.
Big business and the NCAA are fighting back against efforts to Save Girls Sports.
The adversaries of God’s Word are emboldened, well-funded, and setting a big agenda.
Since 2019, the Left has ramped up efforts to take over Georgia. Stacey Abrams and her machine, the media, the Chamber of Commerce, Big Education, Big Medicine, and all sorts of special interests have opposed steps to strengthen our values, defend families, and advance freedom in our state.
And, as Georgia has become the nation’s frontline, we have been at the frontline doing battle.
Since being launched by the national organization, Family Policy Alliance, in 2017, Family Policy Alliance of Georgia has become the premier force for families in our state. We’ve won elections. We’ve been at the forefront of good policy. And, we’ve worked to strengthen God’s Church.
Yet, it has become clear – the forces of those who oppose us are marshalling toward Georgia. Our state is on the verge of becoming unrecognizable. If the Church stays silent, if God’s people let this moment pass by, if we don’t wake up and take action, the future of Georgia is bleak.
I firmly believe God will not hold us guiltless if we fail to be salt and light in our state at this pivotal time in its history.
That’s why we are committed to doing more and being more. That’s why we have a big announcement Monday – a new name for our organization and a new way forward – that will help us grow and rise to the challenge facing our state.
We’re fired up!
Our efforts are aimed at maximizing the opportunities before us, doing all we can, serving Him, awakening the Church, and boldly proclaiming the Gospel in a world racing away from His truth. To do so, we are strategically committed to having the resources and independence needed to be such a force in our state.
I look forward to sharing our new name and more about our efforts with you next week (by the way, we’ll also have a BIG event to announce as well).
President and Executive Director
PS. I look forward to sharing our new name and big vision with you. As we fight here in Georgia – as the frontline – we do need additional resources. Next week, we’ll be asking for your support. Please prayerfully consider how you can help this ministry be what God has called us to be.
