I’ve been on R&R for a few days on the Atlantic Coast at Outer Banks. Today my wife and I are heading to Washington DC for the annual Values Voter Summit sponsored by Family Research Council, American Family Association, Liberty Council, American Values (Gary Bauer) scheduled for Friday and Saturday!
We’ll be gathering with nearly 3000 people as the troops are rallied by a power-packed lineup of speakers including: Paul Ryan, Michele Bachmann, Gov. Jan Brewer (Arizona), Gary Bauer, Mat Staver, Ted Cruz, Sen. Jim DeMint, Gen. William Boykin, Sen. Rand Paul, Kirk Cameron and many others.

His organization since 2000 has had an agenda in the public schools to recommend a pornographic reading list for underage students. A reading list that includes the glorification of adult on minor homosexual sex, books that your kids will be forced to read. Still think a president’s Worldview does not matter?
With so many Christians not voting, do you see that this battle is actually just among Christians? If Christians can educate and encourage enough others to vote and that too, to vote morally and biblically, we can change this country in a single election cycle. And if we do, the dire trends we see will be stopped and reversed. But this must start in our churches.

For a recent email alert entitled Combating a spirit of “I’m not going to vote”, we created a pamphlet using the same title. This brochure is available in PDF form. We urge you to make copies and share it with others and/or forward it to others. Click here to download the pamphlet.
In addition, we created a church bulletin insert that is also available in PDF form. Click here to download the church bulletin insert. We urge you to take and use these valuable resources.
We are also making available free of charge a twenty minute DVD taken from the two hour DVD “One Nation Under God.” I’ve entitled it “Why Christians Must Vote” with David Barton.
As a step to help bring God back to the center of American life, American Decency Association is distributing this significant DVD, “Why Christians Must Vote,” free of charge.
We urge you to order this complimentary DVD and show it to your friends and family, Sunday School class, or church group. Once you view this powerful DVD for yourself, we believe you will definitely want to share it with others.
Let's encourage one another and strengthen one another to be salt and light.
