Fortnight For Freedom

2014 Fortnight for Freedom (June 21st – July 4th)

More than ever our nation needs the 2014 Fortnight for Freedom (15 days of prayer, fasting, and public witness) to protect life, marriage, and religious freedom. As we enter this time, we will be expecting that:

The Supreme Court will announce the Hobby-Lobby case concerning the violation of religious liberty of a business to act in a Christian manner.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit will announce its decision concerning the Virginia State Constitutional Amendment protecting marriage as between one man and one woman.

The U.S. Department of Justice will continue to deny the religious freedom of many Americans by insisting on contraception (including abortion causing birth control) and sterilization being part of the HHS Mandate of ObamaCare. The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty reports that there are over 96 cases filed with over 300 organizations and individuals as plaintiffs against the unconstitutional HHS Mandate.

 

Mark your calendars and join us in a prayerful witness for life, marriage, and religious freedom.
