The air is crisp and cold. Flags are waving. People are cheering. The military salutes. Another President is inaugurated. And people who care about families, marriage between a man and a woman, the sanctity of life and religious liberty stand by the side and wait with baited breath.
Is he really going to abolish all abortion restrictions? Will he repeal the Defense of Marriage Act? Will he appoint judges who will strip churches of their right to preach their beliefs? Will he ask Congress to ratify the most terrifying treaty to come from the UN?
It is a solemn day when a President is inaugurated who promises to oppose the values that this country was founded on.
It is a solemn day when the strident voices of feminism at the United Nations are cheering.
It is a solemn day when those who feel the State has more say over the education of a child than the parents are giddy with enthusiasm.
It is a solemn day when those who promote the taking of the lives of unborn children are counting how many more abortions will now be able to take place.
It is a solemn day.
Those of us who have fought so hard to achieve the victories of the DOMA, Proposition 8, the defeat of the ratification CEDAW treaty, the rights of doctors to refuse abortions, and the ban on partial-birth abortions are saying, “We will not give up!” We will not allow the family to be destroyed! We will not allow our children to be raised by the State! We will not allow the gay-agenda to define the environment in which our children will be raised!
The battlefield is being readied. The forces are assembling. Choose to become engaged. Decide that you will be a part of the fight. United Families International will help you. We will be the voice of thousands around the world who want to be successful in this battle. Together we will fight for the values we hold most dear. Together we will defend families, sanctity of life, traditional marriage and religious liberty.
Beverly Rice, UFI President
