Election 2020 Voter Registration – A Question for You

By | Missouri | No Comments
Does your church conduct voter registration efforts?

As Christian believers, it is our privilege and duty to carefully and prayerfully choose our spiritual shepherds to guide, lead, and reveal Biblical Truth to us for our protection and well-being. Likewise, as Christian citizens, it is our privilege and duty to carefully and prayerfully choose our leaders in civil government for our protection and well-being.

The first step in choosing leaders in civil government is a small one – registering to vote! Sadly, about half of U.S. churchgoers are not registered to vote. Millions of believers are forfeiting their privilege to have their voice, the Christian’s position, heard on a variety of issues that directly impact our society both morally and spiritually. In Missouri alone, it is estimated that there are over 100,000 Christians who are not registered to vote.

Conducting voter registration in your church is one of the most significant ways to encourage your fellow members to be good Christian citizens. According to the IRS, church voter-registration drives are well within the 501c3 guidelines, and even encouraged, as long as they are non-partisan.

Doing a voter registration drive is not only a service to your members who are not registered to vote but also for those who have moved since the last election and need to update their address for voting. You can also help parents help their children who are away at college to vote absentee. Every time you hold a non-partisan voter registration drive, it is a reminder to the members of your church that voting is part of their Christian life.

Action Needed
Consider being a Voter Registration Coordinator and conducting a non-partisan voter registration drive at your church. We have everything that you need to host a voter registration drive at your church, including a letter to your pastor!  Click here and scroll down the page for voter registration drive resources.

We suggest hosting voter registration efforts at your church these weekends before the November election: September 26-27 and October 3-4. These are the weekends before the last day (October 7) that a person can register to vote or change one’s address. If your church is not comfortable with you having a voter registration table because of COVID-19, consider offering to put information together that can be posted on the church website.

Pray: Pray that your pastor will be receptive to your request for holding a non-partisan voter registration at your church. Consider contacting our office so that we can be praying as well.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 1:9)

Letters to the Church – Number One

By | Legal, News and Events, Religious Liberty | No Comments

Dear Church,

We are at war. Everyone paying attention knows it. Some may be uncertain of the battle lines, and even of their position in relation to them, but they can certainly feel our current situation is not good. Despair has settled in on the hearts of many, even within the Church, and the streets are flooded with the consequences of our reality.

Convinced that the only way out of this state is for us, the Church, to be salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16), I set out to write a series of letters to my beloved brethren to try to bring some clarity to this moment.

The conflict you are witnessing is a struggle for truth. Not the watered down, infantile caricature of truth that is fed to us by the Pulitzer Prize-winning puppeteers producing the tragicomedies we see on our screens daily. Nor is it the naive wishes of attention-seeking freshmen dreaming of “world peace.” The warfare we are called to engage in is a battle to protect the basic arithmetic of life.

The spirit of this age tells us all numbers are equal. Sure, two plus two equals four. But it could also equal five and six or eight. That way, more people are right, and no one feels judged for not giving you the answer you want to hear.

“To each his own,” a young Christian told me recently as we discussed biological males breaking women’s track records in college athletics. And so, it is. The man kicking another man unconscious in a recent protest is fighting for justice. The violent protests are peaceful.

Warning: Graphic Content

In some ways, we are witnessing the same deception the serpent has perpetrated on us since the beginning. “Did God really say,” he still whispers (Genesis 3:1). “You will not die … you will be like God” (Genesis 3:4-5).

The serpent was lying, as was his nature (John 8:44). There is no truth in him. Remember then, the snake is still at work in our world today, presenting himself as a benevolent figure. “[W]e wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Should it be surprising then to discover that behind the forces at work today flows a steady stream of anti-Christian sentiment? Should we find it strange that a movement supposedly crying out for justice acts most unjustly? No. Nor should we find it odd that it considers the Christian faith repugnant. The puzzling thing is how many Christian leaders are unable to discern the spirit of the moment.

According to one of the founding voices of the Black Lives Matter movement, rioters should tear down statues of Jesus as they are a “gross form of white supremacy.” The “Black Lives Matter” organization, for its part, says on its website that they are working to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure” and to free themselves “from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking.”

I know this is difficult to confront. We, as the Church, will always fight injustice wherever we find it. In those instances where police abuse their power, we will speak out against it. We will cry out for justice.

But darkness cannot stamp out darkness. Only light can do that. It gains us no advantage to swap out one oppressor for another—to fight injustice with injustice. The serpent has no loyalty. He will grab you and use you for evil in your quest for justice. Indeed, he’ll grab you and use you in your pursuit of God if you allow him. Isn’t this what the Pharisees did?

Both the secularist social justice warrior and the hypocritical religious zealot fall for the enemy’s lies and stand against God’s purposes. They fall for different kinds of lies, but they are lies, nonetheless. They both believe it is their actions that can save the world. They have supplanted God with a new idol, namely themselves.

Truth, on the other hand, has a way of sitting you up straight, humbling you. It brings clarity. Wakes you up from your worthless, self-aggrandizing dreams and demands to be confronted. It puts you face to face with your own sin. It is light. We, as children of light (1 John 1:7), must walk in it. Those who live in darkness hate it.

We cannot be surprised that the spirit of this age hates us (1 John 3:13). Christian leader, for the love of God, stop trying to get the world to like you! Stand for truth. Be faithful to God and His Word. Trust in Him. Consider it an honor to suffer for His name (Philippians 1:29).

Be salt. For if we lose our saltiness, what are we good for anyway?

In Christ,

M

Concerned Women for America of Florida Galvanize Women to Fight for the Soul of America

Orlando – Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Florida hosted a roundtable and prayer call today as part of its national She Prays, She Votes tour.

With She Prays She Votes we can make a difference.”

Penny Nance, CWA‘s CEO and President had this to say, “We are in a spiritual battle for the soul of our nation. As an organization founded on the Biblical principles of prayer and action, Concerned Women for America knows that prayer is power. Our greatest strength starts on our knees for the future and freedom of this great country. God has called us to ‘Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.’ As conservative women, we are leading the call to dedicate ourselves to prayer and action in the 2020 election.”

CWA Celebrates 100 Years of the 19th Amendment

 Washington, D.C. – As today commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution which officially granted women the right to vote, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America (CWA) Penny Young Nance had this to say:

“Today, we celebrate 100 years of women’s triumph in attaining their right to vote. We remember the tenacious and relentless women like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul who endured significant adversity but held firm to their values and dreams of equality. They were also clear that their rights could not be built on the broken rights of others. Alice Paul called abortion ‘the ultimate exploitation of women.’  We owe the suffragists a great deal of gratitude. Without them, we would not be able to exercise our voices in the critical upcoming elections. We are 68 days out from an election in which issues such as the sanctity of human life and religious liberty are hanging in the balance. Therefore, CWA is on the road with our She Prays, She Votes tour and traveling to battleground states including Arizona, Florida, and Iowa to galvanize women to pray for our country and vote their values.”

Calls Needed! Taxpayer Funding for Transgender Treatment Heads to Senate Floor

By | California | No Comments

Assembly Bill 2218 passed the Senate Health Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee and it could be heard on the Senate floor as early as today, August 25.  And, because of recent minor amendments to the bill it will have to return to the Assembly floor for a concurrence vote.

As you’ve learned from previous alerts here, here, and here, AB 2218 establishes a Transgender Wellness and Equity Fund to encourage, promote, and provide the means for sex-change operations, cross-sex hormones, and puberty-blocking drugs to minors and adults. The taxpayer funds to provide grants were originally set at $15 million, but now there is no limitation – simply “as appropriated by the Legislature.”

Take action today to help us stop this dangerous bill!

  1. Contact both your state senator and assembly member asking for a “no” vote on AB 2218. Find your senator and assembly member here. Be sure to let them know you are a member of Concerned Women for America of California.
  2. Forward this email to friends and family.

The legislative session will end on Monday, August 31, so AB 2218 could be heard any time during the next several days, first in the Senate and then the Assembly. Do not delay in contacting your elected officials.

Please pray: Father, please help our senators and assembly members to understand the enormity of this vote and to understand Your truth about our creation, male and female, in Your image. Give them the wisdom and COURAGE to say “no” to this bill. Protect our vulnerable children and give their parents the wisdom to guide and protect them throughout their lives. Lord may Your will be done in California. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

We thank you for your prayers and action once again. You are our faithful warriors!

The Old-School Tactics of Teachers Unions May Not Survive COVID-19

By | Education, Legislative Updates, News and Events | No Comments

Across the country, millions of families are faced with cobbling together strategies to make a new school year work. In many places, schools could have been working on better solutions, or at least not resisting them. Legislators could have helped by expanding educational options for students and providing the financial support to follow.

Liberals have stood on the wrong side of education reform for decades. Backers of a Biden presidency should know the tide will turn against supporting families with greater choice in education, even during a pandemic.

In many politically liberal school districts, public schools have gone into virtual retreat instead of working overtime to find non-traditional solutions. Creative minds could think of many possibilities:  grouping smaller cohorts of students, alternating schedules, ensuring students with special needs receive on-site services. In some places, this is happening. Other districts, however, spent the entire summer in limbo and defaulted to “virtual” learning which most recognize was a real failure in the spring,

This has left many working parents in a lurch, including those in my Northern Virginia community.

Parents are concerned about health, but they are also scrambling for strategies. They are the ones getting creative since their school administrators aren’t. Districts run by left-leaning school boards have started warning against innovative pod learning, even shaming parents against such alternatives in the name of “equity.”  Here’s what Virginia’s Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) said in a Message for Parents on Tutoring Pods:

“While FCPS doesn’t and can’t control these private tutoring groups, we do have concerns that they may widen the gap in educational access and equity for all students. Many parents cannot afford private instruction. Many working families can’t provide transportation to and from a tutoring pod, even if they could afford to pay for the service.”

Knowing parents are desperate for options, FCPS has figured out how it can use the crisis to its financial advantage. A number of schools will offer paid childcare for elementary-aged students charging parents up to $1500 a month for the privilege of sending their students through the schoolhouse door.

Entrepreneurial parents might soon find that other educational options are more effective than the traditional schools – more time on fact-based academic learning, and none on feelings-based self-awareness lessons and gender unicorns. They might just start to question the value of their local tax dollars going to these agenda-driven government-run schools.

The National Education Association (NEA) and American Federation of Teachers (AFT) have resisted returning to class and undermined strategies to cope with school closures, exposing how the liberal establishment stands guard over an old-world education order. Their vocal opposition sounds tone-deaf to the realities of the current crisis for families. If the priority was on educating students, they would be cheering for solutions, not posting threats about learning pods widening the divide between “have and have nots” (which only underscores why schools should be opening their doors).

These old-school tactics have long been apparent. Anything that threatens the power of the teachers’ unions threatens their existence. They are enemies of expanding educational choice because they hold monopoly power over government-run schools. They attack educational scholarship programs, even ones that give low-income parents the chance to send their kids to a higher-performing school because competition would cut into their job security.

Based on voter attitudes, the NEA and AFT might be losing their grip. Their response to the current pandemic could be exposing this fear.

Black and Latino parents support the concept of school vouchers because all parents hope to give their kids the best shot at academic success. A poll  commissioned by the American Federation of Children shows the continuing strong trend that “a broad and deep coalition of voters back school choice.”  Sixty -nine percent, including 82 percent of Latinos and 68 percent of blacks, supported giving  “parents the right to use the tax dollars designated for their child’s education to send their child to the public or private school which best serves their needs.”

For educators more interested in power than their profession, being separated from students by a computer screen instead of supervising them in person might be an added incentive to keep remote learning going as long as possible – all the more reason why the collective power of the teachers’ unions and the monopoly of government-run education should be reimagined while disruption is the norm. It’s time to overrule the old-world order in favor of an excellence-based, pandemic-flexible, family-friendly, 21st-century education system.

Trump Administration Acts to Protect Human Dignity in Sickness and in Health

By | Legislative Updates, News and Events, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

Concerned Women for America (CWA) received three exclusive briefings last week on actions the Trump Administration is taking to protect human dignity across the lifespan. No human life should be disrespected or discarded on the basis of age, stage, or disability.

Ending Fetal Tissue Research: At the behest of CWA and pro-life partners, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced last year several changes to its policy on the use of fetal tissue in research projects. These included discontinuing all federal funds for internal research projects and requiring that all external research proposals be reviewed by an ethics advisory board.

On August 18, the Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board issued a report to the Secretary of HHS and to Congress which recommended withholding funds for 13 out of the 14 research proposals submitted that would use human fetal tissue (the body parts of aborted babies). One project for which the Board recommended funds NOT be withheld was approved by a vote of 9-6.  Board members raised legitimate ethical concerns, but the majority sided with the investigators on the basis of their plan “to use preexisting [human fetal tissue] … with no need to acquire additional tissue for the planned studies. If successful, the research will obviate the need for HFT in future models.” Hopefully the Board’s actions will bring a final end to the abhorrent practice of destroying pre-born life for unethical research.

Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance: Also on August 18, the Trump Administration released its second implementation report on the impact of the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy (PLGHA). PLGHA affirms respect for unborn life in foreign aid funding by requiring foreign non-governmental organizations to agree, as a condition of receiving U.S. federal grant money, to neither perform nor promote abortion as a method of family planning overseas.

International Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes International, who believe in a global right to abortion on demand, declined funds. Other awardees accepted this requirement and conducted their projects without disrupting vital health services to women and families. This proves again how the Trump Administration’s priority to protect life is making a life-saving impact on the international stage.

Prohibiting Age and Disability Discrimination during COVID-19: On August 20, HHS’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced it reached a civil rights complaint resolution with the state of Utah, which should serve as a model for other states, after Utah revised its crisis standards of care guidelines to prohibit discrimination against patients on the basis of age and disability. This is OCR’s seventh resolution with a state regarding discrimination concerns during COVID-19. The coronavirus pandemic has placed unprecedented demands on the medical system, but that is no excuse for doctors and hospitals to undermine human dignity by disqualifying persons with advanced conditions associated with age from receiving life-saving medical care, or deprioritizing people with disabilities, during a  public health emergency.

We are grateful for the ways the Trump Administration is tirelessly prioritizing the dignity of every human life in policy and action.

President Trump Pardons Susan B Anthony!

By | National Sovereignty, News and Events | No Comments

President Trump Pardons Susan B Anthony! This might sound like a strange headline, but on the historic 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, President Trump gave an official pardon to one of the most notable and honorable ringleaders of the women’s suffrage movement, Susan B. Anthony. As a member of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, Concerned Women for America’s (CWA) CEO and President Penny Nance stood front and center as the President signed a Presidential Proclamation honoring the 100th Anniversary of the Ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment and announced that he will grant a full and complete pardon for Susan B. Anthony.

A statement from the White House Press Secretary marking the August 18 anniversary offered a lesson in history paying tribute to “the advocacy, perseverance, and leadership of a truly remarkable woman and an American hero:”

On November 5, 1872, Susan B. Anthony, after having been permitted to register to vote, entered a polling location in Rochester, New York, and cast a straight ticket Republican ballot. Two months later, a grand jury in Albany, New York, returned an indictment against her for having voted illegally. At the onset of her trial in June 1873, and in clear violation of her rights to trial by jury and due process, she was convicted by way of a directed verdict issued by the presiding judge—Supreme Court Justice Ward Hunt. During the trial, Justice Hunt stated that “the voting by Miss Anthony was in violation of the law.” After not being permitted to testify on her own behalf, she was finally given the opportunity to speak on the last day of trial. In the most famous speech in the women’s suffrage movement, Susan B. Anthony aggressively defended a citizen’s right to vote and compared the denial of such a right to the denial of “sacred rights to life, liberty, property.” Justice Hunt then directed the jury to return a guilty verdict and imposed a $100 fine on Susan B. Anthony as her sentence. Although the suffragette steadfastly refused to pay the unjust fine, Justice Hunt did not have her imprisoned, preventing her from appealing her sentence to a higher court.

Susan B. Anthony’s conviction under the law served to inspire millions of women in her generation and the decades to follow to stand with conviction and purpose for a cause greater than herself.   Let us embrace her example in this election as we seek the Lord in prayer for our nation and go to the polls in November. Our right to vote should never be taken for granted.

Private Enterprise Can Get Us Through the Pandemic

By | CEO, National Sovereignty, News and Events | No Comments

Concerned Women for America’s CEO and President, Penny Nance wrote a recent op-ed for CNSNews on private enterprise and the COVID-19 pandemic. Here is a quote from the article: “Conservatives know that socialist policies never make sense and are the last thing we need in our health care and pharmaceutical industries in these difficult times. Their free-market instinct has been proven right. The lesson of the last four months is clearly that the private sector is the solution. Let’s not forget it.”

CWALAC Endorses Focus on Protecting Children and Taxpayers from the Destructive Cost of Gender Reassignment

By | Blog, Legislative Updates, News and Events, Sexual Exploitation | No Comments

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee’s (CWALAC) impact on policy was on display as several members of Congress, led by Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-California), introduced legislation responding to the alarming acceleration of “gender reassignment” interventions causing irreversible harm to children and violating the conscience rights of federal taxpayers. The “Protecting Children from Experimentation Act” and the” End Taxpayer Funding of Gender Experimentation Act” aim to shield children and taxpayers from the deceptive push to “normalize” gender reassignment and promote destructive transgender medical practices using drugs and surgeries.

At the national and state levels, CWALAC has been working to educate lawmakers on the radical, irreversible medical treatments being exploited by an activist medical community, including unethical research supported by the National Institutes of Health to deal with the psychological condition of gender dysphoria.

In announcing the bills, Rep. LaMalfa said, “Our society has quickly ‘normalized’ gender experimentation under the guise of an ‘accepting’ political ideology rather than biological reality. Even more troubling, children are undergoing experimental treatments, like being injected with puberty-blocking hormones and cross-sex hormones, which have irreversible consequences, such as permanent sterility.”

Doreen Denny, CWALAC Vice President of Government Relations, offered this statement of support:

“Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) agrees children who struggle with identity should be protected from harmful ‘gender reassignment’ medical practices causing serious health risks, irreversible damage, and increasingly, regret. Minors are incapable of giving informed consent to destructive medical interventions degrading their development and sterilizing their bodies. Unfortunately, the Big Gender market is more interested in profit than ethical practice.  CWALAC applauds Rep LaMalfa’s proposals standing against the medical mutilation of minors in the name of ‘gender confirmation,’ and the use of federal tax dollars to finance radical gender reassignment interventions.”

Nance on Harris VP Pick

By | News and Events, Press Releases | No Comments

Penny Nance, President and CEO of Concerned Women for America LAC, issued the following statement on Joe Biden selecting Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate:

“As we’ve seen in past elections, a woman on the ticket does not assure the women’s vote. If Joe Biden truly believes in diversity and inclusion, he would have chosen a pro-life Democrat or a radical feminist who believes in basic biology.

“Kamala Harris’ track record on abortion is nothing short of extreme.While serving as the Attorney General of California, Harris sued pro-life activist David Daleiden who released videos of Planned Parenthood officials involved in the sale of baby body parts. In Congress, she supported radical legislation supporting unrestricted taxpayer funding of abortions. In addition, she has a 100% approval rating from NARAL for her pro-choice voting record and the endorsement of Emily’s List. Selecting Biden/Harris would be a horrific blow to the pro-life movement and the progress we have made these past four years on behalf of the intrinsic value of every human.”
