We are still looking for the longest married couple in Louisiana! If you or someone you know has been married for 65 years or more, please fill out a submission form here.
We want to encourage healthy marriages, foster cultural support for marriage, and remind Louisiana that lifelong marriage benefits everyone by honoring this faithful couple and sharing their story! All submissions must be submitted by February 3rd.
The top-10 longest married couples will also be honored by receiving an Official Statement of Special Recognition and will be entered into the LFF “Marriage Hall of Fame.”
We look forward to celebrating the institution of marriage with you!
Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin announced that effective immediately, Louisiana is suspending its participation in the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC).
“When Louisiana joined ERIC under my predecessor, we did so under the impression that it would enhance the accuracy of our voter rolls and strengthen Louisiana’s election integrity. After reading about these allegations and speaking with election attorneys and experts, I have determined that it may no longer be in Louisiana’s best interests to participate in this organization.
It is vital that any legitimate allegation of voter fraud or possible misuse of our voters’ personal information is investigated. My job is to ensure that the data voters entrust to my office is protected. I look forward to ERIC’s swift response to these allegations.”
Confidence in our election integrity is essential to the health of our constitutional republic!
Next week, the Louisiana State Senate and House will meet in Special Session to begin redrawing district lines for every office in the state.
Governor John Bel Edwards has made an "ambitious" suggestion for how the state should redistrict. He called for an additional majority-black congressional district, arguing that specifically designating a district for African Americans will guarantee representation.
Louisiana attempted this in the early 90s and it was rejected by the courts as political gerrymandering.
Rep. Alan Seabaugh objects to the idea, noting that “you cannot draw districts (that) are designed to bring about a specific result,” that will inevitably result in a lawsuit.
Pray for peace and wisdom as political subdivisions are decided statewide!
Friends, as the left engages in identity politics and attempts to fight racism with more racism, we must remind them of our true identity. Each of us is a child of God with immense value and purpose. God calls us not to focus on our appearance, but our character and the condition of our hearts and souls.
We must continue to share this Truth and pray that everyone in our country begins to view one another as God intended.
