NATIONAL NEWS: EPIC BATTLE - STATES ARE STEPPING UP!
An encouraging news trend this month: States across the nation are stepping up in what is becoming an epic battle to protect religious liberty. A few examples:
Missouri legislators are working to qualify a state ballot measure to let citizens vote to “ban government discrimination against people of faith because of their beliefs about marriage,” reports Daily Signal.
Mississippi and Louisiana move to ban dismemberment abortions, writes National Right to Life.
North Carolina OKs House Bill 2 to protect children’s privacy in public restroom and changing facilities.
As a result of these efforts, God-fearing leaders are facing threats by business and entertainment figures to move jobs out of their states and cancel popular music concerts. This is a flash-point for our nation on religious liberty and we have momentum. Time for action!
SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 41:11; Acts 4:29.
PRAY: Boldness and success in speaking God’s word.
ACTION: Send an email, call or write a postcard to your governor: “Dear Gov. (Name), I am counting on you to stand firm for religious liberty.” Sign the Faith & Freedom Coalition petition protesting actions by business and entertainment against religious freedom.
