BATON ROUGE, La. (LBM)–The political and cultural wars in America contribute to a divided nation with regard to many issues that are important to the church. A group called the “Freedom from Religion Foundation” recently demanded that I stop sharing Scripture on social media. As the Left has done to try to quiet many before, they attempted to bully me into silence. But I did not back down.
The freedoms to worship, to voice our religious convictions, and to live according to our beliefs at home and in the workplace are rights I cherish and that I work daily to protect. I also vote my values to protect the lives of the unborn, and to see that federal judges are appointed who interpret the U.S. Constitution with the intent as it was written, not how they wish it was written.
On November 3rd, Louisianans will have the opportunity to vote our values when it comes to electing a president and vice president of the United States. Additionally, we will choose six representatives to the House. Finally, you and I will have the opportunity to vote our values in choosing a U.S. senator.
Likewise, we will have the privilege to vote for the Love Life Amendment, which will ensure our Louisiana Constitution cannot be misinterpreted to support a right to abortion, or taxpayer funded abortions. A YES vote will send a loud and clear message that Louisianans value life and care about protecting our unborn children.
If you have not registered to vote, please don’t wait — and don’t forget to vote for those who will stand with you in faith to fight to protect unborn children and religious liberty.
Also continue to pray: Pray that our representatives in local, state, and federal office will honor God and his precepts; and, pray that God would give us all wisdom, courage and strength so that we will do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord — “….act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God” (Micah 6:8).
