On the first half of todays program I will be joined by Jeff Mateer, General Counsel for Liberty Institute. Jeff will join me to discuss some of the recent occurrences of religious liberty infringement and how they are battling back. In 1972, Liberty Institute began as a small advocacy organization under a different name and advanced the cause of liberty, including religious liberty.What began nearly 40 years ago has grown into an influential non-profit law firm, dedicated to defending and restoring religious liberty across America.Some of our recent cases include representing the major veterans groups in the high-profile Mojave Desert Cross case and defending a high school valedictorian who was told by a federal judge she could not pray in her graduation speech or she would go to jail. We remain committed to protecting and defending religious liberty in America – in our schools, for our churches, and throughout the public arena.
On the second half of the program I will be joined by Penny Nance, President and CEO of Concerned Women for America. Penny was one of the speakers I saw at the Stnd4Life event in Austin back in May. She has been traveling the nation to make women aware of the real battle against women of faith through a health care mandate that supports abortion on demand and forces everyone to pay the costs for it. Concerned Women for America is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization with a rich 30-year history of helping our members across the country bring Biblical principles into all levels of public policy. There’s a cultural battle raging across this country and CWA is on the frontline protecting those values through prayer and action. We focus on seven core issues; the family, the sanctity of human life, religious liberty, education, pornography, national sovereignty, and support for Israel.
Both of todays guests will be making a special appearance here in Kerrville this Saturday October 26th at 2 PM at Inn of the Hills Conference Center and Resort. Please make plans to attend this special event. This will be a forum so you will have an opportunity to get your questions asked and answered. God bless you and remember that together we can turn this thing around!
