The movement to remove statues and replace history is alive and well.  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌
 

Dear Friends,

The image speaks volumes. The memorialization of America’s first president, George Washington, toppled, covered in graffiti, and set on fire by protesters.

For centuries, Washington was revered, remembered as the man who led our nation into battle against the British – against overwhelming odds, who defended freedom's cause amid accusations of treason, and who gave selflessly of himself when the outcomes were uncertain.

Washington was not a perfect man. In fact, never in America has there existed a perfect man. But that’s the miracle of the American experiment – a nation and creed framed by imperfect men, within a system designed to protect freedoms better than any other in world history.

This image of the defaced Washington is proof that the productive, national conversation on reconciliation and their intersection with public policy has been hijacked by radicals in order to provoke discord and bring dissonance.

The toppling of historical and religious foundations isn’t expressed speech, as shouted by the media; it’s anarchy, designed to purge foundations upon which America was founded. And the moralization of ‘organizers’ labeled peaceful, would be laughable were it not so deadly.

The media, once a noble enterprise comprised of honest journalists seeking to illuminate public corruption and eliminate injustice, has been co-opted to produce political results and advance biased narratives, rather than remaining impartial and honest about the state of affairs in America.

The Media’s Assault on Judeo-Christian Values in Louisiana

Last week, following the brazen SCOTUS decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, in which the nation’s highest court reinterpreted “biological sex” to include perceived “gender identity” and “sexual orientation,” LFF released a statement to the press outlining the constitutional issues with the Court’s usurpation of its authority and law-craft from the bench.

Religious liberty threats are real because they now involve bad legal precedent. Make no mistake -- courts will take power that wasn’t granted to them simply because a previous court did so. This is a real problem for America – not just those disappointed by this decision.

Rather than acknowledge the real merit of LFF's concerns, The Advocate, Louisiana’s largest daily, chose to use this as another opportunity to marginalize LFF, continuing use of their inflammatory and inaccurate rhetoric.

I explained to the Advocate Editorial board several years ago about incidents of nails in my driveway, bullet holes through our office windows, and that I carry a side arm today because of their irresponsible use of language which inflames emotions. The “anti-gay” pejorative used to dismiss LFF concerns surrounding the recent SCOTUS opinion was neither charitable nor accurate.

I wrote this letter to the editor to deliver that message and to offer formal notice of my 40 year-subscription cancellation.

What Can You Do About This?

Most of the mainstream media has abandoned objectivity and integrity. I never thought that would become the case locally.  As courts erode foundations and the media fans the flame of uninformed discontent in order to incite action, we may not always have opportunities to make investments in the organizations that protect our beliefs and freedoms. As of today, you still have that opportunity.

LFF is a firewall against biased media and any organization that seeks to undercut a strong, reality-based worldview. Will you make a contribution to support our efforts to preserve faith, family, and freedom in Louisiana, and to take on the media establishment that wants to marginalize you and your beliefs?

Thank you for your continued support of LFF and our mission – to be missionaries to the public square, and to bring God’s truth into the darkest parts of our world.

In His Service,

Gene Mills
President, LFF

 
 
 
 
 

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

George Orwell, 1984
