The Name It Deserves

Dear Marriage Supporter, It has often been said that “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” The truth of this comes home to us in a powerful way nowadays as, around the country, we see (every day, it seems) more and more frequent attacks on the freedoms guaranteed under the first amendment: the freedoms of […]

Congress Must Send a Message

Dear Marriage Supporter, The D.C. City Council is at it again. This time, they’ve passed two egregiously intrusive and offensive pieces of legislation which, if they were to take effect, would severely curtail the first amendment rights of individuals and organizations within the district who believe in marriage as the union of one man and […]

Turn Outrage to Action Now!

Dear Marriage Supporter, The mask is off… supporters of same-sex “marriage” are now actually cheering at the idea of firing someone for their faith. As you well know, Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran in Atlanta published a book about his faith standing up for the biblical teachings on biblical manhood that discussed Christian teaching on marriage […]

Standing For Our Faith

Dear Marriage Supporter, Right now, our friend Reverend Garland Hunt is preparing to lead the Standing for Our Faith Rally at the Georgia Capitol rotunda in support of Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran. At the center of the controversy down in Atlanta is a man who has served as a public official with a sterling record; […]

Urge Mayor to Reinstate Fire Chief Ousted for Expressing Faith

Dear Marriage Supporter, News came down yesterday that Kasim Reed, the Mayor of Atlanta, GA, has fired the city’s Fire Chief, Kelvin Cochran, for expressing his religious views in a self-published book released last year. The book contains, among other things, explanations of Mr. Cochran’s biblically-based beliefs about sexuality and marriage, which predictably brought the […]

A Reflection

Dear Marriage Supporter, Christmas is one of my favorite times of year. It’s a time of family and celebration. And it’s a time of reflection — looking back at the past year and looking forward to the new. Recently, reflecting on the story of the birth of Christ, I realized something… When Jesus came into […]

Important Questions Need to be Asked

Dear Marriage Supporter, Yesterday, an article in the Washington Examiner reported on a proposed change by the U.S. Census Bureau that most major media outlets will likely ignore. According to the article, “If the Census Bureau has its way, the government will no longer monitor statistical trends about marriage.” The piece rightly notes that demographic […]

What We're Up Against

Dear Marriage Supporter, I have to let you know exactly what we’re up against. Recently, the news reported that David Koch—the conservative boogeyman of the left—will be interviewed by ABC’s Barbara Walters for her “The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014″ special scheduled to air on Sunday. In the interview, he unequivocally states, “I’m basically […]
