I often hear parents voice their frustration by saying, “I can’t believe they are teaching this in school!” Unfortunately, I can.

Our current educational crisis has not taken me by surprise. We have been warning churches, legislators, and parents for years that the effort to sexualize minors with pornographic novels, to teach risky sexual acts to young children, and to sow seeds of confusion regarding the binary gender was part of a plan to fundamentally change society.

And the building block of society is the Family.

One of the first major Supreme Court cases that began the process to redefine the family was Lawrence v. Texas in 2003. This decision set a precedent that state legislators across the country cannot create laws based on traditional sexual morality. But this wasn’t enough…

This immediately gave rise to the effort to recognize civil unions between adults of the same sex. In October of 2006, the NJ Supreme Court forced the state legislature to create a law that recognizes the legal union of two individuals of the same sex. But this wasn’t enough….

Civil Unions quickly became a national push to legalize same sex marriages. The definition of the nuclear family unit had to be redefined according to activists. In NJ, our organization, along with churches and partners across the state, faithfully and successfully stopped the redefinition of marriage for ten years. After five legislative sessions, it finally did pass, but Governor Chris Christie vetoed it. But this wasn’t enough…

(In NJ, the legal definition of marriage remained one man and one woman until January 2022! It was legal in NJ based on the 2015 Supreme Court case below, but it was not codified into state law until last month.)

What activists long depended on was the ultra-liberal progressives that sat on the nation’s highest court to implement their plan. In June 2015, the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that every state was required to recognize same-sex marriages, thereby overturning five thousand years of world religions, ethnic cultures, traditional laws, and long-standing bedrock family structures. But this wasn’t enough…

The end game to redefine the family was never intended to simply allow adults to receive legal rights between partners as married couples do. It was always about teaching the next generation of children to adopt new sexual ethics and practices.

Next week, we will continue drawing the direct link between the kindergarten classroom in NJ and the national, decade-long movement to force the state to end its recognition of the gender binary.

I leave you with this platform statement from Liberation Road, a far-left socialist organization: “Gender liberation goes beyond mere equality, but requires the fundamental transformation of society.” That my friend, has always been the plan.

But we are not giving up. We are here to protect the family. Your voice will be heard in Trenton and around the state.

We have just completed a momentous decade. The iPad was unveiled by Apple Computer in 2010. The last Flight of the Space Shuttle occurred in 2011 as well as the Royal wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton (for the Anglophiles among us). Remember the Mayan calendar prediction that the world would end on December 21, 2012? That, apparently, didn’t happen. The Ice Bucket challenge was a real joy; as well as the “fidget spinner.” Oh Boy!

On a different note, in 2011, US Navy SEALS raided the compound of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan and called him to account for his role in the terror that has rocked the world since he founded the Al-Qaeda terrorist network. We also saw the rise of ISIS and a horror that stunned the world.

In our own country, a “sea-change” event was felt in 2015 along the lines of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision when the Obergefell case was decided and same-sex marriage was legalized by a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling.

This decision overturned millennia of human knowledge and ushered into the zeitgeist a host of new conversation topics for the dinner table. Since then, we have seen some people question the very biology of male and female and whether the pronouns we use are somehow discriminatory. As a matter of fact, Merriam-Webster decided that the pronoun “they” was the word of the year in 2019 as they felt that “him” and “her” were suddenly less than affirming.

Every day, we are writing future history. Future generations will study the events of our time and make judgements regarding how we acted…or not. Inaction is an action. To passively stand by without comment will be judged by those who live in the world we leave behind.

As we contemplate the next decade, we in Wyoming must look at the future with a sense of purpose. As we see the world outside changing, we must be aware that “our” world inevitably changes with it. Our homes, families and communities will reflect our influence. Will it be for good?

Here at Family Policy Alliance®, we envision a nation where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished. This is the focus of the next decade. Will you join us?

Sincerely,

Nathan Winters

Family Action Council of Tennessee is moving forward with a lawsuit seeking to get clarity on the Supreme Court ruling that redefined marriage.

The Obergefell case of two years ago  left many state marriage statutes in limbo and David Fowler, president of FACT, tells us that he’s calling out the court to, in Justice Antonin Scalia’s words, “remind the court of its impotence.”

Find an allied group in your state.

The Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling last summer left many states in limbo concerning marriage law. Now, a Tennessee lawsuit is calling for much needed clarity.

 David Fowler, president of Family Action Council of Tennessee, explains why the suit is needed and what he hopes the outcome will be.

 

2016-06-21-MarchforMarriage

The March for Marriage in Washington, D.C., will be held on Saturday, June 25, the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that redefined marriage.

The Obergefell v. Hodges ruling blatantly ignored the U.S. Constitution and wrongly imposed the will of five justices on all 50 states. Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, is helping organize the rally.

“We will be marching this year to protest the unprecedented and egregiously incorrect ruling of the narrow majority in Obergefell,” he said, “as well as to advocate defense in law for the rights of people of faith to abide by the consciences and the mandates of their religion when it comes to recognizing or participating in the solemnization of same-sex ‘marriages.’”

He added that they will also speak out about the administration’s efforts to open up public school girls restrooms and locker rooms to boys.

Marriage supporters will rally in front of the Capitol, then march to the steps of the Supreme Court. You can learn more about the event and sign up at MarriageMarch.org.
