Greetings from FRC Action!
We wanted to share the following information with you from our friends at the Family Foundation of Kentucky. If you have previously received this message, please simply disregard this second contact. We did, however, want to make certain that you, your friends, and your neighbors would be aware of this very critical information.
We encourage you to join the Family Foundation in making your voice heard today!
Dear Friend -
House Bill 279 - The Religious Freedom Act - has been vetoed. A deeply spiritual battle is taking shape. This engagement will be decided before Tuesday (March 26) is over and it will have implications for your children and your children's children - and it actually will have implications for the nation. We, together, must be found faithful - we are on the "firing line."
... What the other side (gay and lesbian groups) has done is make this a battle about whether their will can be imposed on others of us regardless of our religious beliefs. In short, they want this bill to fail so they can "rule" via city ordinances. HB 279 does not address those groups - it simply restores what was lost with the Oct. 25th Kentucky Supreme Court decision last year....
Legislators will need your encouragement for the debate ahead! S-o-o-o,
Pray and forward this email to others, then please do two things:
#1 Call the Legislative Message Line [at] 1-800-372-7181 and leave this kind, but firm message with the secretary "for all the legislators in my county and copy my message to House and Senate Leadership." (The operator will know who all these are.)
"We're counting on you to override the veto of HB 279 - The Religious Freedom Restoration Act."
Call TODAY (Friday) if possible. The Message Line is open this afternoon (Fri) and Mon and Tues next week from 7:00 AM EST until 6:00 PM EST. The Session ends Tuesday, March 26.
#2 Come to a solemn assembly held in the Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday, March 26 at 11:00. Leaders of Kentucky's churches will share. Your taking the time will give real encouragement to legislators who voted for HB 279 and who now must attempt to override the veto in the midst of huge pressure. They need your help!
So, it's a total of four action items:
- Forward this email;
- Make the Call; and
- Come on Tuesday....
Thank you for standing with us and the Family Foundation to protect and defend Faith, Family, and Freedom!
