I hope you had an outstanding Christmas surrounded by loved ones. As you celebrate the first advent of our Savior, and contemplate His second, please remain mindful of our shared responsibility to build a Louisiana where God is honored, life is respected, families flourish and liberty reigns.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer referred to that responsibility as the “this worldliness of our Christianity!" Chuck Colson called it the Cultural Mandate of Matt 28...”and teach them to observe all that I have commanded you!”
Some of those issues remain top Biden Administration priorities today, including:
Government-imposed vaccine mandates have become one of the greatest threats to those liberties over the past several months. (Please note LFF is supportive of ethical vaccines for all, mandates for none.) Thankfully, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments on January 7 challenging Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for companies that employ over 100 people and for healthcare workers at companies that benefit from Medicaid and Medicare funding.
These cases will ultimately decide whether or not the federal government has power over your bodily autonomy and can force employers to require vaccinations.
"If the executive branch is allowed to usurp the power of the legislative branch to make laws, two of the three powers conferred by our Constitution would be in the same hands," wrote U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana Judge Terry Doughty. "If human nature and history teach anything, it is that civil liberties face grave risks when governments proclaim indefinite states of emergency."
Doughty is absolutely right. We are in grave danger of tyrannical rule if we allow the federal government permanent emergency, executive powers.
Some are trying to defend the validity of biological men competing in women’s sports following testosterone suppression treatment, claiming that levels the playing field, but the science says otherwise. Even if the muscular advantage that males boast could be eliminated, we are in danger of reducing “the definition of female human being to having a certain level of testosterone in your body for a certain amount of time,” therefore ignoring the science of genetics, which tells us that the sexes are separated by far more than just hormones.
Thankfully, athletes and sports officials are speaking against this injustice. Recently, a USA Swimming official resigned in protest of swimmer Lia Thomas, a biological male who has dominated his female opponents at the University of Pennsylvania. Cynthia Millen “has officiated at USA Swimming events for 30 years, but she hung up her whistle last week in protest over Penn transgender swimmer Lia Thomas, and she hopes others will follow her lead,” according to the Daily Wire.
This is why LFF will bring back Fairness in Women's Sports in 2022. We will fight for fairness in women’s sports and work tirelessly to ensure equal opportunities for all athletes.
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is presenting another lawsuit backed by multiple states against Biden’s mandate requiring toddlers to wear masks and staff and volunteers in Head Start programs to receive the COVID shot.
“Like all of his other unlawful attempts to impose medical decisions on Americans, Biden’s overreaching orders to mask two-year-olds and force vaccinate teachers in our underserved communities will cost jobs and impede child development,” said Landry. “If enacted, Biden’s authoritarianism will cut funding, programs, and childcare that working families, single mothers, and elderly raising grandchildren rely on desperately.”
The success of this lawsuit is paramount, as healthy child development is at stake. Please pray for its success and for more leaders like Landry who are bold enough to fight back against government overreach.
Friends, we are working hard to fight for your freedom, and would be humbled by your continued support.
Your generosity will go directly toward amplifying your voice, protecting your civil liberties, and promoting faith, family, and freedom.
Have a wonderful week.
