Dear Friends,

Louisiana’s 2023 Elections are this Saturday, October 14th. Political consultant Michael Wong of the Strategies Group has declared that the Republicans are the big winners based on early voting. Last year was the first year EVER that Republicans outperformed Democrats in Louisiana early voting, a process that peaked during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Operatives like Wong wondered if Republicans could continue to gain during the 2023 early voting process. "Republicans took the early vote lead on day two, and didn’t really looked back," Wong said in last week’s issue. "The Republican vote spread just kept growing. Turnout looks like it’s going to be fairly low statewide, which likely means more chronic voters and less persuadable swing voters making up the electorate.”

Axios reports that according to a new poll, there is a quickly-growing population of non-religious people. 

Three out of every ten adults in the United States do not associate with any religious group. Among these adults, approximately half identify as either atheists or agnostics, while the other half describe their religious affiliation as "nothing in particular." 

This trend away from organized religion is even more concerning among younger adults, with 43% of individuals between the ages of 18 and 29 responding that they do not adhere to any specific religious faith.

John Adams said, “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” This means our country is in need of faithful Christians willing to make an impact, especially when it comes to elections.

East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore and the Louisiana Board of Pardons and Committee on Parole decided that Louisiana death row inmates will no longer be eligible for clemency hearings.

Governor Edwards has advocated for the reduction of sentences of 56 death row inmates to life imprisonment. Moore, along with other DAs, filed injunctions to halt the scheduling of these hearings, asserting that eligibility, notification, and timing criteria were not adhered to.

Consequently, these inmates on death row will not be granted clemency hearings.

Moore views this as a victory for the families of the victims. “We’re in the right position for the right reason and we fully expect that we will prevail and this is a hard fight on behalf of these victims’ families,” he said.

What’s next? “I expect they will appeal anything they can appeal and I know that we will fight everything that we need to fight with everything that we have based on the law and facts,” according to Moore.


The Biden administration is attempting to make it more difficult for those with science-based views on gender to run a business. 

Federal law prohibits workplace harassment based on sex, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is now trying to use this law as a means to take action against employers who hold that biological sex is assigned at birth and cannot be changed.

The proposal states that workplace harassment includes “intentional and repeated use of a name or pronoun inconsistent with the individual’s gender identity (misgendering).” 

Federal courts have consistently affirmed that no one can be forced to support or promote speech that goes against their own beliefs, including the use of specific gender pronouns. This proposal is a clear violation of our First Amendment rights!

Friends, we have an opportunity in this upcoming election to ensure that the freedom to worship is protected in Louisiana through Constitutional Amendment #2, which will safeguard religious liberty during emergencies. Tell your friends and family to vote YES to Amendment #2!
