Bleating from the FRC

Help Us Fight for the Family in the New Congress

Fight for the Family in the New Congress!
December 19, 2006 |
Dear Friend:

Members of Congress have gone home for the Christmas break, but it's just "the calm before the storm." When the new Congress convenes here in just two weeks, we expect a growing assault on pro-family and pro-life values. We need your help -- and your financial support -- to meet this assault head-on.

Over the past year, you've helped us have a tremendous impact on the national policy debates. Through your action - responding to alerts, contacting friends, voting on Election Day, offering prayers - and your generosity to FRC, you've kept our political leaders aware of the convictions of pro-family Americans.

The people spoke on Election Day and put a liberal majority in power. We don't believe for a minute, however, that our fellow Americans were sending a message that they want things like higher taxes on families, publicly funded embryo-killing, the end of abstinence programs, national health care, and the weakening of man-woman marriage. Unfortunately, the new leaders in Congress and their radical allies may see it differently.

Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, Chuck Schumer, Barney Frank and their friends are likely to use stealth tactics to advance every radical liberal cause imaginable. They'll be backed by well-funded groups, from Planned Parenthood to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

FRC must be ready to fight back, to counter anti-family policies and activist judges, and to keep working to strengthen marriage and protect unborn children. That's why it's so important that FRC finish 2006 financially strong. Year-in and year-out, friends like you have helped us meet our budget and develop policy ideas like the Defense of Marriage Act, child online protection laws, and the $1,000-per-child tax credit.

Now, new ideas and new strategies are needed. We ask your help in creating a war chest that will allow us to win the battles we must wage to protect the family and its rights in areas like medical care, sex education, and schooling. We have no illusion that our funds will match those of our opponents - but our intensity and our endurance can and will exceed theirs.

Knowing you stand shoulder-to-shoulder with us is a source of hope and encouragement as we prepare for 2007. Your support will ensure that FRC is equipped for every key battle. Your special year-end gift will be a true boost to our efforts. If it's not a financial hardship for you now, please consider including us among the nonprofits you support.

If you've already sent a tax-deductible year-end gift, please accept my sincere thanks. But if you haven't yet had a chance, or if you can even give again, please consider doing so today. You can make a secure gift online right now by clicking here.

Together, God willing, our hard work and determination will amaze the pundits, surprise our opponents, encourage our friends, and make 2007 a year of renewed progress for faith, family and freedom.

Thank you for partnering with us, and may God bless you and your family this Christmas and in the New Year.

The FRC lost big. There's no sugar coating that one.
