Dear Friends

Some good Louisiana news: due to the worldwide energy demand, Louisiana has rehired 2,500 upstream oil sector workers, and is projected to pick up 3,500 more jobs by mid-2023!

In other Louisiana news, AG Jeff Landry opines on lewd librarians:

I have struggled to find the right words to describe the new books currently being circulated within the children’s sections of our public libraries and public schools; but I too know pornography when I see it, even when it is thinly disguised as educational material for children. Librarians and teachers are neither empowering nor liberating our children by connecting them with books that contain extremely graphic sexual content that is far from age appropriate for young audiences.” Source

Library battles continue in Louisiana!

Landry’s concern regarding the controversies going on throughout our state about the public libraries is legitimate. Parents and concerned citizens are shocked to find out that there is sexually explicit & graphic material available to children in the library. In several parishes there is organized effort to have these books and videos "quarantined" behind an age-verified firewall so that they are not available to minors. Lincoln Parish was successful in getting children’s books promoting gender fluidity into a “Request Only” section. In other parishes like Livingston and St. Tammany, there are grassroots efforts to halt hyper-sexual material from touching minors. In both of these parishes, we encourage residents to contact their parish council members to ask for immediate action to protect children from harmful material. The St. Tammany Parish RPEC will hold a town hall meeting on this matter on November 28, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. in the Slidell City Council Chambers.  Several elected officials including the AG Jeff Landry will attend. The public is invited to attend!


On Friday, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) announced a lawsuit – the first of its kind – on behalf of doctors and health care organizations against the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for “illegally approving chemical abortion drugs that harm girls and women.”

The plaintiffs in the case include the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American College of Pediatricians, the Christian Medical & Dental Associations, and doctors Shaun Jester, Regina Frost-Clark, Tyler Johnson, and George Delgado.

First, the FDA pushed for the legalization of chemical abortion in 2000. ADF asserts, the only way the FDA was able to approve chemical abortion drugs was by “characterizing pregnancy as an ‘illness’ and arguing that these drugs provide a ‘meaningful therapeutic benefit.’”

While we lament the betrayal of 12 Republican Senators in their vote to move the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act forward (The 12 can change their mind, though!), American actress Candace Cameron Bure sets a shining example for how to defend natural marriage.

In a recent interview discussing her move from Hallmark to the Great American Family TV Network, former Full House star Candace said at GAF, “traditional marriage” will be kept at the core of programming.

Naturally, the opposition pounced on Bure for daring to take such a stand. Bure graciously responded by affirming her faith and compassion for all. She said, “The God we serve is a wildly creative and loving God. He didn’t just capture a small part of my heart, He has captured all of my heart. He will be reflected in everything I do and say; in my family, my work and my interactions with people from all walks of life, God’s love and compassion is front and center.”

And to those who criticized, she offered: “I love you anyways.” 

Wow…not just classy...but Christian character!


Friend,wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for you and your commitment to, “God’s will be done!”

In His Service,
