There is an explicit assault on your children and grandchildren. The assault is an experiment in social engineering, and not surprisingly, it’s by those opposed to life and family values. They have figured out that if they can shape young minds to their radical agenda, then advancing their agendas becomes much easier when these children grow up. They are looking at the long term, and I am sorry to say, it works.

In this vein, two articles struck me last week. One concerned how Planned Parenthood is making a movie targeted at teens called “Never Rarely Sometimes Always” that talks about how a young unwed pregnant teen gets an abortion behind her parents’ back. I’m sure in their version of the story, everything turns out great. I’m sure there is no regret, guilt, complications, etc, that are often experienced with abortions. This film is rated PG-13.

The other article that caught my attention was targeted at even younger-age children. Not unlike the “Arthur” television serious that ran a pro-LGBTQ episode, which I talked about some time ago, Disney (not surprisingly) is creating a short Pixar film called “Out”. It features a man named Greg who is living with his boyfriend, Manuel. Greg must decide how to “come out” and tell his parents he is gay. This film is in cartoon format and rated PG.

These movies and similar efforts that target our children and grandchildren are about one thing: desensitization. Once our children are desensitized that abortion and an LGBTQ agenda that infringes on religious freedoms of others are “just the way it is’, it will be part of the new normal.

I don’t want that new normal, but rather, the old normal. I want to ensure that the old normal set by our founding fathers is preserved; one where life is cherished and religious liberties are protected. The old normal, where family values that have built this country are honored. One where God and the biblical principles that are the foundation of our country are the guiding light for our society, and not social constructs and the culture of death that has crept into our society.

If you are committed to protecting your children and grandchildren from this encroaching culture, we’d appreciate your financial support. Simply click here and you can donate a tax deductible gift to help us continue our work.

Two musical notes, E and F, played in just a certain way, evoke a range of emotions for a generation of movie goers. Those two notes played repeatedly bring a cold dread and the fear that a giant shark will jump out of the screen to devour the viewer.

The power of cinema to persuade has been seen over and over since the dawn of the silver screen over 100 years ago. Each generation has its movies stars, soundtracks, quotes and “one liners” that instantly take them back to that place in high school where they swapped stories with their friends.

Movies are so powerful because they draw the viewer in and make them a part of the life the actor is portraying. But the emotional power of movies can make them so prone to abuse.

This past week, Nora Caplan Bricker, a freelance journalist publishing in the Washington Post, informed us that Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry giant, has advised Hollywood on more than 150 movies over the past 5 years.

Even as research shows that millennials are increasingly at odds with the abortion on demand message, Hollywood is doubling down its promotion. At the height of scandals outlining Planned Parenthood’s role in the sale of body parts from preborn babies back in 2016, the terrible messaging of abortion continued through the actors and scripts of the movie industry.

Thankfully, in spite of the all-out effort to promote the abortion business, Planned Parenthood has lost about $160 million dollars over the past couple of years as Americans have been made aware of the massive amounts of federal funds given to the abortion giant.

In contrast, The Christian influence of pregnancy-resource centers and pro-life legislators, standing for those who cannot yet stand for themselves, has shown a better way to help our society.

It has always been the message of hope, love and compassion that has driven the efforts of those who work tirelessly to preserve the lives of the preborn and born. This is the message the Family Policy Alliance brings to Wyoming. By standing with allies in the ongoing struggle to preserve the lives of the next generation, we shine a light of hope.

Would you stand with us as we start our fiscal New Year and donate to the founding of this important new ministry in the state of Wyoming.?

If you would like to do so, please visit our website and help Wyoming be a place where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive and life is cherished.

Sincerely,
