In case you haven’t been reminded for the 5 millionth time this month – it’s gay pride month. It seems like every store you enter is not just announcing it but literally screaming at you. Kids are being indoctrinated through cartoons and in the classroom. All of it is an attempt to normalize behavior that the world knows, but refuses to admit, is not the way we were create to thrive.

The world is acting like the world. It’s broken and hurting. None of this is a surprise to God. None of it should be a surprise to us.

As Christians how we respond to all this says a lot about who we are, what we believe about sin, and what we believe about God. I in no way claim to have all this figured out, but here are few things I’ve been processing over the last several weeks.

My first reaction when kids are being exploited by LGBTQ activists or when I have to reject another store’s attempt to get me to give money to an activist organization is to get really angry and a little bit bitter. We instead need to respond with broken hearts, repentance, and compassion.

The world wants to redefine love. They want it to be something that is unconnected to a higher being but simply is whatever they want it to mean. Unfortunately, love doesn’t work that way. However, Christians don’t get to re-define love either. In fact, God said love isn’t easily angered. James says, “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.” The Bible literally defines God as love.

It’s that simple.

Now, can I feel frustration and seek change because of the brokenness of sin around me? Yes. But that doesn’t mean that I am allowed to take that frustration out on the broken. Instead, my goal is to approach individuals around me with compassion & humility. My constant prayer when I engage with people who disagree with me is that they will leave every conversation knowing that they are valued and loved simply because they are made in the image of God.

As our culture is increasingly forcing these topics on our kids, it gives us an opportunity to talk to our kids about the nature of sin, about how we are called to love, and to demonstrate Christ-like love to those around us. These are not issues we can allow our kids to learn from the world.

When I’m tempted to make a stank face at the cashier when she asks if I want to donate to an LGBTQ activist organization or when I get a little overwhelmed by how far (and quickly) the culture has progressed, I remember who reigns over this world and to whom I belong no matter what the world may tell me. It’s not my job to save the world. Jesus already did that; I just get to be a part of revealing His saving power and love to a broken world. It takes a lot of the pressure off of me and frees me up to engage with others in a winsome way.

May we walk as people of love and compassion, and may Christ fill our lives with hope as we wait on His return.

Walking with humility,

Brittany Jones, Esq.

You probably know by now that June is being celebrated as LGBTQ Pride Month. The purpose of the month is to celebrate and promote the LGBT culture, to recognize the Stonewall riots that happened in 1969, and to acknowledge the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on local, national, and international history and culture. Have LGBTQ individuals made significant contributions to our society? Undoubtedly.

Let me state at the outset that I have no animosity towards members of the LGBTQ community. I’ve said it before, but will restate, that I have friends who identify as LGBTQ and I love them dearly. As you might imagine, we don’t talk politics too often, but that’s ok with all of us. If those who identify as LGBTQ want to celebrate their lifestyle, they are certainly entitled to do so, given the freedoms in our country. However, there is a larger issue I want to address: our country’s transformation that has led us to Pride Month.

For those of us who have lived a few decades, we have the benefit of hindsight. While it’s not always the 20/20 it’s purported to be, it does often help put things in perspective and give insights not readily observed when things happen in real time.

In the 1980s, the LGBTQ movement came out of the shadows in many ways as something that needed to be recognized, whether one agreed with it or not. Americans were asked implicitly and sometimes explicitly to accept that the LGBTQ community was part of society, and Americans did, under the premise of pluralism and the freedoms embodied in our country’s foundational beliefs (which are rooted in Christian thought, by the way).

As time moved along, the focus shifted. During the latter ‘80s and early ‘90s the topic became HIV/AIDs. Disproportionately affecting those who identified as LGBTQ, due to lifestyle choices, the disease ravaged the community and Americans were soon forced to focus on a cure for this terrible disease. While HIV/AIDs certainly did put the LGBTQ identity in the spotlight, it also engendered much research, medical attention, and eventually some level of empathy for those suffering from the disease.

There were also high-profile cases such as tennis player Arthur Ashe and Ryan White who contracted HIV from blood transfusions, highlighting that nobody was entirely protected from the disease. As a result of all these factors, our country moved from acceptance to the beginnings of empathy for the LGBTQ community.

In the 1990s, we also started to see Hollywood stars and other high-profile individuals such as Ellen DeGeneres, George Michael, Melissa Etheridge, and Tammy Baldwin, the first openly lesbian candidate ever elected to Congress, come out as gay or lesbian. The dialogue moved from advocating for medical care and empathy for those who identified as LGBTQ, to advocating for tolerance and equal rights. LGBTQ advocates stated they only wanted to be treated the same as everyone else, not as an abnormal part of society.

In the 21st century things have changed considerably. More high-profile individuals have come out as LGBTQ and more groups have surfaced to advocate for their cause. The LGBTQ movement has successfully taken over the debate terminology (e.g., you are cisgender, not simply male or female; we’ve all adopted LGBTQ, not LGBT and even add +), the media have become loud advocates for the LGBTQ cause, and businesses have been shamed into jumping on the bandwagon and virtue signaling they are not only nondiscriminatory, but sometimes unbelievably promoting of the LGBTQ lifestyle.

Those who wish to speak out against anything having to do with LGBTQ talking points are labeled homophobic, ignorant, or part of a hate group and are shamed by the media. The entertainment industry is bending over backwards to show how inclusive and accepting they are. In broadcast television, roughly 10.2% of all regular expected series characters identify as LGBT. For movies, the LGBT percentage has ranged from 14%-17% in recent years, with the percentage rising each year. That said, LGBT-identifying Americans comprise only 5.6 percent of the American public, per a recent Gallup poll. Agenda. You think?

We are now at a point where the federal government, as well as some other levels of government, actively promote and enforce the advancement of the gay and lesbian identity. Schools are being required to teach LGBT curriculum to kindergartners. The Biden Administration has indicated that boys identifying as transgender girls will be allowed to compete on girls’ athletic teams. And the list goes on.

My point in all this is not to provide a history lesson of the LGBTQ+ movement, but to show the transformation of thought and practice that has slowly and almost imperceptibly occurred over the past few decades. Our country and its value system have been led from acceptance to empathy to normalization to forced promotion of the LGBT lifestyle. And that’s how we’ve gotten to today’s celebration of LGBT Pride Month.

We have been asleep at the wheel. While the American people generally try to be accepting, our country has been led down a path where more and more demands are placed on you and your family by the LGBTQ cause – demands that now or very soon will violate your values and beliefs.

So, back to LGBTQ+ Pride Month. Should a Christian participate in the normalization of something that is actively trying to eradicate our values? No. We should be kind, always. But we should never bow to today’s social intimidation and contempt for traditional values which break down the very fabric of Liberty.

So, back to LGBTQ Pride Month. Am I going to attend this year’s Pride events here in Bismarck, such as the one scheduled for Saturday at the Capitol? No, I do not want to further normalize something that is actively trying to eradicate your and my values. I do not want to legitimize today’s social intimidation and contempt for traditional values that have led to such an event. I may have no issue with the LGBTQ community celebrating its achievements, but when their agenda comes at the cost of those of us with biblical beliefs and our religious freedoms, I do have a problem. Thanks for listening.

Friends,

As you may have already heard or seen, the Twin Falls Public Library is prominently featuring a “Pride” display of books, handouts, and other media—all celebrating LGBT lifestyles.

Many of the books are sexually explicit and morally offensive, praising deviant sexual behaviors and encouraging those struggling with gender dysphoria to undergo harmful and often irreversible hormone therapies and sex reassignment surgeries. The display also includes material explaining why it is important to be an LGBT “ally.”

There are no opposing perspectives included in the display—nothing that explains the health problems associated with these lifestyles, and no books from a Christian or conservative perspective that thoughtfully and respectfully interacts with LGBT literature. Frankly, this type of display is indoctrination at its finest.

The library board of trustees will be considering the appropriateness of this display at its next board meeting.

Please use our Action Center to send a message to the library trustees and ask them to take down the display and stop promoting radical LGBT philosophies and lifestyles.

Standing with you,

Blaine Conzatti
Executive Director

As COVID has once again brought school home for many students, some parents may be surprised at the content their children are learning. It may be overly sexualized or otherwise objectionable, it may present radical viewpoints as fact, or it might be used by a teacher to belittle a child’s values.

Most parents will agree that’s not right – but they may not know what the next steps are to remedy the situation. Or they may not know these concerning situations are arising in the first place.

That’s why Family Policy Alliance and Focus on the Family created our Back to School—for Parents guide. Parents – not schools – are best at parenting, and they should be equipped to address situations their children may face at school. Our FREE guide gives parents the information they need to understand what may be happening at their child’s school and how to address it.

We’re honored that many leading voices have commended this new resource . Here’s what they’ve said so far:

American College of Pediatricians

“Given how pervasive socialist ideologies and online technology have become in our culture and public institutions, it has never been harder for parents to know our rights, and to properly educate and protect our children. As a pediatrician and mother of four adolescents, I can authoritatively say that Back to School—for Parents by Family Policy Alliance and Focus on the Family is the most important book a parent will ever read. Download one for yourself, and for each of your family members and friends who cherish their kids!”

Michelle Cretella, MD, Executive Director
American College of Pediatricians

American Principles Project

“Left-wing activists have completely infiltrated our schools and are doing everything they can to indoctrinate our kids into their dangerous ideology. We have to stop them. Kudos to the Family Policy Alliance and Focus on the Family for developing this wonderful educational guide to help parents protect their children.”

Terry Schilling, Executive Director
American Principles Project

Christian Medical & Dental Associations
(Endorsement of the guide’s school health rooms, clinics and counseling offices section)

“There is far more going on in school clinics today than most parents recognize. The ‘Know Your Rights in School Health Clinic and Nurses Office’ section of Family Policy Alliance’s Back to School-for Parents will give parents the important wake-up call and preparation they need as their children enter into the pre-adolescent and adolescent years.”

Jeffrey Barrows, DO, MA, (Ethics)
Senior VP Bioethics and Public Policy
Christian Medical & Dental Associations

Concerned Women for America

“Concerned Women for America stands with Family Policy Alliance and Focus on the Family on the front lines of these challenging cultural issues.  It is critical that parents be equipped with the information they need to understand and confront the gender ideology being promoted through our schools.  CWA commends Back to School—for Parents as an invaluable resource to educate and engage families and policymakers in your community.

Doreen Denny, Vice President of Government Relations
Concerned Women for America LAC

Gateways to Better Education

“Today, more than ever, Christian parents with children in public schools need to be involved. This handbook is a valuable, and much-needed, resource for every parent! It gives practical advice on how to advocate for children regarding a variety of crucial issues.”

Eric Buehrer, President
Gateways to Better Education

Save Women’s Sports
(Endorsement of the guide’s sports section)

“The issue of males competing in female sports is serious threat to women. We need to protect the rights, privacy, and safety of the future generations of females. If we continue to allow males to compete as females, female sports will cease to exist. We applaud Family Policy Alliance’s and Focus on the Family’s efforts to Save Women’s Sports.”

Beth Stelzer, Founder
Save Women’s Sports

We are so thankful to these leaders for sharing their endorsements of this guide. Download your FREE copy today and be sure to share with friends!

Parents, as you head into this Christmas week, giving your children the gift of being prepared to handle situations that arise in their public school setting is a wonderful one! And so is sharing this Guide with a fellow parent you know could use this information.

Back to School—for Parents  is Family Policy Alliance’s gift to all parents and grandparents this 2020!

Dear Friends,

Over the years at Family Policy Alliance, we’ve had the privilege of being entrusted with some of your (parents & grandparents) deepest concerns about your children. You’ve given us the privilege of praying for your children and of helping you decide how to best handle issues that have arisen affecting your children.

Through the course of this partnership with you, some of the saddest situations you’ve shared with us are what your children have been exposed to at school. And we’ve had the heavy responsibility to warn you about what is happening in schools across the nation.

Remember Planned Parenthood’s radical sex education curriculum that they’re pedaling in public schools or now through your children’s phones? We partnered with a diverse coalition to expose the transgender policies being sprung on children in schools, providing parents with a comprehensive guide to understanding and addressing concerns. We’ve helped rally parents to oppose a radical new LGBT curriculum requirement And lately, we’ve been fighting to save girls’ sports from becoming targets in the latest round of political attacks. And so much more.

Now we’re excited to invite you to attend a virtual eventThe Protecting Children in Education Summit

The virtual summit is a one-day-only event on August 12th, from 10:00AM – 12:00PM Eastern Time. The event is FREE, but you do need to register online!

Family Policy Alliance® is joining with our friends at The Heritage Foundation, Alliance Defending Freedom, California Family Council, Family Research Council, Family Watch International, and Massachusetts Family Institute to provide this first-ever event for parents and grandparents.

The first session will alert parents to state and federal—and even international—efforts to sexualize children using school curriculum. The second session will expose the curriculum itself and how it fails to meet legal standards.

This is sure to be an eye-opening event! And, you can watch and learn online from home or work.

RSVP NOW

We hope you’ll join us virtually!

For children,

Autumn Leva
Vice President, Strategy

Symbols are loud. Silent, but not unheard. For example, LGBT agenda flags celebrating sexual pride flying over a business or local town hall, communicate that Biblical beliefs are unwelcomed and unaccepted inside those doors. Post-modern sexuality has taken that battle hill in this eternal war for truth.

The confederate flag in similar fashion is a symbol of cultural southern pride to some, and a message to others of being unwelcomed and unaccepted. If the Mason-Dixon line were to have been extended directly due east, it would run near Penns Grove, NJ on the Western part of our state and Barnegat, NJ on the East. Despite racial tensions in south Jersey in the early 20th century and in Newark in the 1960’s, we now live in the most diverse state in the union. I am Jersey Proud!

Today, America is at odds not over symbols but over statues. It is a struggle over history. American Exceptionalism or American Fatalism? Who will win the war for the soul of our nation? If Garden State Equality lessons are used, middle school students may not know if they are a boy or a girl after sitting through Health class, but they know America is an evil oppressive nation after sitting through History class.  

NJ is not absent from the conflict. Woodrow Wilson’s name is being removed from Monmouth University’s marquee building, and in Trenton, Governor Murphy has now abandoned the desk of President Wilson in his office.

Let’s remember history, President Woodrow Wilson (D) is the father of progressivism – holding fast to a globalist, elitist, racist view of the world. Margret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood was his contemporary and held identical racist ideologies. She founded the largest most powerful abortion provider in the world to systematically target people of color. Will the radical left demand the dismantling of Planned Parenthood? In NJ, our legislature awards them with 20 million dollars per year! Woodrow Wilson most assuredly would be proud.

Presidents and founding fathers who built our nation on the foundation of religion and morality will forever be tainted for their possession of slaves. Should their relative experience of a global widespread historic wrong that predated their existence, sweep away their contributions to the concepts of individualism and religious liberty? If yes, does this same standard of collective condemnation apply to modern progressive Presidents who support the destruction of tens of millions of human lives in the womb through abortion?

I am proud to be an American. Some surveys rank NJ as the least patriotic state in America, but this is not the NJ I know. This independence weekend be intentional about your patriotism. Vote in the primaries by July 7, display an American flag, serve in your church, love your neighbor, pray for your leaders.

Enjoy this Independence Weekend!

In 1938 a British play entitled “Gaslight” premiered at the Richmond Theatre in London. The story was set in the 1880s when streetlamps and gaslights were cutting edge technology in the fog shrouded streets and dim parlors of London.

In the story, Jack Manningham uses deceptive tactics to convince his wife Bella that she is losing her mind. Jack covertly turns down the gas-lamps occasionally and mutters to himself as he searches for jewels in an empty apartment just above the one in which he and his wife have made their home.

When Bella questions Jack about the voices she hears from the empty upstairs apartment and why the lights dim at the strangest times, he insists that everything is okay and questions whether her grasp on reality is slipping.

The play became an international sensation. It crossed the Atlantic in 1941 and became a tremendous hit on Broadway under the name “Angel Street.” The show ran continuously through the war years and even found success on the silver screen in both Britain and America.

Though it closed in 1944, it achieved immortality by coining a term that found its way into the lexicon where it is used to describe a specific kind of psychological manipulation where a victim becomes convinced that what they clearly see is wrong and possibly even the result of their own misperception; That the lies of the victimizer are right because they must be seeing things more clearly.

Last week, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra declared that state-sponsored travel to the state of Idaho would be banned because Idaho voted to save the promise of Title IX and reserve girls’ sports for girls. The legislation that preserves this promise does not restrict anyone from playing sports, it just makes sure that biological girls will compete on a level playing field as they strive to earn sports scholarships for the dream of higher education.

The California Attorney General used a method that has become all-too common in our society today. In the Cheyenne paper just last month, two articles were reprinted from the Los Angeles Times praising what they term “queer” ideology and implying that a scientific view of human sexuality was demeaning. Wyoming and American citizens are bombarded by movies, articles, concerts, and rallies proposing that science and objective reality are wrong and that anyone who would believe such a thing is morally wrong as well.

I raise this concern because Christians and conservatives can sometimes grow dispirited under such a horrifying onslaught. Time and again, this year, I have heard Christians share the sadness in their hearts. Whether it is the Superbowl halftime show, the marches that go on in celebration of the extremes of the sexual revolution, or the challenge of being called a bigot when it is genuine love that truly defines our character, some Christians start to wonder if reality is worth fighting for.

At Family Policy Alliance of Wyoming®, we are committed to encouraging you in the struggle for truth. We challenge you to put on your spiritual armor every day and be strong in the Lord and the power of His might.

God’s pure light shines through the dimming lamps. Keep your eyes on Him!

Sincerely,

Nathan Winters
Executive Director

The sex and gender debate has never been hotter in the USA.

In the last three months:

Then today, a majority of the U.S. Supreme Court started playing a dangerous game. Sadly, Americans have come to expect judges who step outside their authority to act as lawmakers instead of law-interpreters. What the Court did today was worse—the justices acted as lawmakers, while spilling ink to justify to Americans that they were not.

In today’s opinion, the Court claimed that a longstanding federal law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in the workplace should encompass “transgender and gay identity” inside the meaning of “sex”—even though nearly everyone agrees that Congress never intended that when the law was first passed. Instead of requiring the LGBT lobby to push Congress to change the law, the Court granted them a vigilante-style shortcut.

This startling action caused Justice Samuel Alito to remark, “[a] more brazen abuse of [the Court’s] authority to interpret statutes is hard to recall.” (brackets for clarity)

This is a pivotal cultural moment – one that will decide where we go next, and one we cannot afford to lose.

LGBT activists will celebrate their win today. But, tomorrow the real work of crafting strong policy and clarity within our laws must increase like never before. The Court made clear today that their ruling only applies in the context of for-profit employment situations. That means Family Policy Alliance needs your help like never before to protect the definition of sex in other contexts, such as the law we are defending in Idaho clarifying that girls’ sports teams are only for girls. Erasing men and women from our laws would have disastrous consequences that no legal expert today could even begin to imagine. We must craft critical new policies to advance good laws, laws the courts would have a difficult time playing games with.

President Trump’s Administration is hard at work to clarify that “sex” in federal law simply means “male and female,” showing how out of sync the Court is with the reality of the law and policy. But the work can’t end there.

This must be a critical moment of action for us all. As you know, we’ve been hard at work fighting to Save Girls’ Sports in Idaho and other states. Males should not be able to steal opportunities reserved for females – including athletic opportunities. On this issue, “sex discrimination” absolutely plays a role (under a federal law similar to Title VII, Title IX) – and we must fight to ensure the true meaning of “sex” is maintained. If a ruling like today’s were imposed on Title IX, males would be allowed to take opportunities reserved for females – eradicating women’s opportunities across the nation.

We can’t let that happen. At this critical cultural moment, it’s important for leaders to know that the public believes biological sex matters, and that “sex discrimination” should not have multiple meanings. What happened today seems to be at least in part the result of cultural pressure – so it’s important that the public send a strong message for the future that biological sex matters.

If we can win that battle – where there is remarkable consensus, despite the Left’s loud claims – we can begin to win the  “sex” and “gender” battle at large.

That’s one reason we’re launching our #SaveGirlsSports Week next week – and we’re asking you to participate. From June 21-27, we’re asking everyone to post on social media using the hashtag #SaveGirlsSports. We also must send a strong message to our lawmakers now—biological sex matters in athletics, and girls’ sports must be protected!

Please join the #SaveGirlsSports campaign now. The Supreme Court’s dangerous game must stop today.

Onward,

Brittany Jones
Policy manager

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.

Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota® is entirely funded by your generous donations. Thank you for your sacrificial giving, and please stay healthy and safe through these difficult times our country is facing.

Sincerely,

Mark Jorritsma
