LFF’s annual search for Louisiana’s Longest Married Couples ends tomorrow! Every year, we recognize our longest married couples as a way of honoring the institution of marriage and the men and women who have faithfully lived their vows .
If you know a couple who has been married for more than 70 years, please click here to nominate them quickly – BEFORE the close of business, Wednesday, February 3rd – for induction into the Louisiana Marriage Hall of Fame, and for consideration as the 2021 Longest Married Couple.
LFF has launched a petition to Twitter Executives requesting that they stop the censorship. Twitter banned one of LFF ally Focus on the Family’s Twitter account last week after they correctly asserted that President Biden’s new Deputy Health and Human Services pick, Dr. “Rachel” Levine, remains a biological man who dresses as a woman.
If Twitter is given a pass on banning conservative organizations for speaking truth about biology, they will ban all truth tellers – including LFF. Please take 30 seconds, SIGN the petition, and then SHARE it with your friends. We need to send Twitter a very, very clear message.
Last week, we shared with you that Congressman Mike Johnson (R-La.) is leading the charge, alongside 200 House Republicans, to protect the Hyde Amendment. The Amendment prevents the use of taxpayer dollars to fund or refer for abortions, and Democrats in the majority want to see Hyde gone.
Republicans contend that the Hyde Amendment protects taxpayers with moral objections to abortion funding. The letter, authored by Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), points out that the Obama Administration “maintained the Hyde Amendment in each of his budget proposals.” Biden’s stance on the amendment has flipped over the years. Hopefully President Biden is able to resist partisan pressure for him to take action against Hyde.
As Gene wrote in his end-of-week email last Friday, Louisiana is more than ready to occupy the top spot on a number of lists. We pride ourselves on being the best. But there’s one list where we’re more than honored to wear the scarlet letter.
The Human Rights Campaign has issued a scorecard for Louisiana, showing that we have failed on almost every issue and measure they track and promote. And that’s a testament to LFF’s diligence, and those who support us. The Human Rights Campaign seeks to normalize transgender reassignment surgeries for kids, add LGBT programming in schools, promote on-demand abortion, and make obsolete the traditional family. LFF will take this “F” every year!
LFF is standing in the gap ahead of the 2021 legislative session – where Louisiana lawmakers will have no choice but to counter the anti-family agenda being pressed by liberal leaders in Congress. We need your continued support to ensure Louisiana remains an example for the nation – and a great place for families to thrive. Will you make an investment in the continuation of that work?
