Dear Friends

I hope you had a great time of Thanksgiving with family over the long weekend (especially long by virtue of LSU’s poor play Saturday). We are so blessed to live in a country where freedom still exists, even if political winds seem bent on silencing religious liberty. Here are a few updates I felt you needed to see:


As you know, the Senate is considering legislation to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and codify same-sex marriage in federal law. The so-called “Respect for Marriage Act” is a tremendous threat to religious liberty, but for whatever ill-conceived reason, 12 Republicans voted to advance the bill.  

Democrats claim that their bill respects religious liberty. It does not. Over the weekend, Reverend Franklin Graham warned that the Respect for Marriage Act “is dangerous legislation that would be used against individuals, churches, and organizations who honor traditional marriage.

 I am pleased to report that we are making a progress!

Senators Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK) have announced that they will support an amendment by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) to guarantee that individuals, small businesses and faith-based organizations are protected from lawsuits and government harassment.

We still need one more senator to oppose the Respect for Marriage Act without the Lee amendment.

That vote is this afternoon. The senators most likely to “see the light” if we “turn up the heat:"

Sen. Roy Blunt (MO).                       Sen. Richard Burr (NC)

Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (WV)     Sen. Joni Ernst (IA)

Sen. Thom Tillis (NC)                        Sen. Todd Young (IN)


PASTORS - if you have church contacts in these states, please have them call the Capitol Hill Switchboard now at 202-224-3121 and ask for their office. Tell the aide who answers "that your senator must vote to protect religious liberty!” Respectfully ask them to oppose the Respect for Marriage Act unless the Lee Amendment is included in the bill.

Thankfully, both Louisiana Senators Cassidy and Kennedy opposed this legislation


Dr. Anthony Fauci, the man behind so many questionable COVID policies, was required to testify on how he worked with social media companies to silence dissenting voices.

Louisiana AG Jeff Landry deposed Fauci just before Thanksgiving as part of a lawsuit filed in May of 2022. Landry said, “I will continue fighting for the truth as it relates to Big Government colluding with Big Tech to stifle free speech.”


Yesterday, Dr. Jordan Peterson posted this episode of his show featuring Congressman Mike Johnson. 

On this episode, they discussed oil, inflation, the way forward, and more. Congressman Johnson is quickly becoming one of the leading Christian conservative voices in the nation.


Friend,will you support LFF? Today is Giving Tuesday. Will you consider making a donation to support LFF’s efforts for life, family and Biblical principles? We need partners in order to contend on behalf of truth. Please consider giving here.

As we head into 2023, let’s resolve to speak truth, express courage, and seek God’s blessings in order to fight for what He values.

In His Service,
