Today the Obama administration, radical organizations like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, and many major corporations see you and your family as the problem with America.\r\nYour biblical morality is labeled as "hate" on par with racism. Yourfreedom is labeled as "discrimination" worthy of boycotts and threats.Your faith in God is called backward, harmful, and in some casesunlawful.\r\nWith such wealthy, powerful forces attacking your deepest values and your personal freedom, WHO STANDS FOR YOU?\r\nThe answer is Family Research Council . . . which is why I'm asking that you make a donation now to help FRC reach our $2.5 million goal by the end of our fiscal year on September 30, so we can keep standing strong at this pivotal point in our nation's history. A $500,000 Matching Grant will make every dollar go twice as far. It's critical we achieve our September 30 goal to strengthen our advocacy for you where it counts the most.\r\nFRC has a respected collection of seasoned experts influencing the halls of power in Washington, D.C. . . . arguing your case in the national media . . . activating the grassroots in states across the country . . . and informing and mobilizing over 10,000 pastors and churches.\r\nI am incredibly humbled by the strategic influence God has entrusted to FRC.\r\nI don't take our influence for granted. Our board, staff and I are constantly evaluating how to make the most of every opportunity and then praying for God to do "exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think" (Ephesians 3:20).\r\nThat is why I'm asking you to give in response to our $500,000 Matching Grant and our $2.5 million goal.\r\nI also ask myself, "What if FRC wasn't here at this moment of American history?"\r\nWho would be representing your values and religious freedom daily in meetings on Capitol Hill? Or statehouses? Or on FOX, CBS, in major newspapers, or in the media?\r\nWho would be building a massive network of pastors and churches\u2014educating them on how to push back in a biblical manner against the most dangerous governmental campaign of hostility against Christianity in our nation's history?\r\nWho would be handing members of Congress and news reporters the difference-making research showing the value of Christianity to our society . . . debunking the propaganda of the radical Left think tanks, the liberal talking heads and the relentless "Progressive" activist groups?\r\nRight now we are in a 24-hour-a-day struggle for the future of religious freedom and influence in America. Every day the pressure is on.\r\nI thank God He has provided supporters like you at this moment.\r\nAnd I pray you will respond generously to our $500,000 Matching Grant opportunity and our $2.5 million need with a timely gift now. We will put it to use immediately defending your faith, family and freedom.\r\nPlease help\u2014and please know that with the help of supporters like you, FRC will continue to stand for you in the most strategic places of power in America.\r\nStanding (Ephesians 6:13),\r\n\r\nTony Perkins\r\nPresident\r\nP.S. What if FRC wasn't here at this "gut-check" moment of history? Who would stand for you in Congress, national media and state capitals? Who would provide the research and make the arguments to push back against the deception and bully tactics of the radical Left? Please give now to help us achieve our $2.5 million fiscal year-end goal by September 30. Every gift will be doubled by our matching grant. Thank you!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHatin' sure doesn't come cheap!
