Via email from hate group leader Tony Perkins:
God gave America a reprieve in 2016 from judgment. Will you thank Him with me? With Christmas only three days away, will you pause from the busyness for a few minutes? Will you take time now or tonight to stop? I’m an ordained pastor, as well as President of Family Research Council (FRC). I know the Bible, but I also know that God works in ways that are far above my understanding.
Defying political expectations, defying my own expectations when this year began, Donald Trump is our president-elect, my friend Mike Pence is our vice president-elect, and the doors have opened for faith, family, and freedom. I believe God has indeed given America a reprieve. We didn’t deserve it. Not with the murder of the unborn, the attack on God’s institution of marriage, the distortion of God’s creation of gender, and many other violations of His will.
But God, in His mercy, granted it anyway. Let’s pray and work so that this reprieve might become a new, prolonged era where Christians will bless America as “salt and light” (Matthew 5:10-13) and as a result people will come to “the knowledge of the truth.” And in that light, please include the work of FRC in your prayers. Our team and I appreciate it! Thank you, and may God bless you for your passion to see His will done in our country.
FRC is in the middle of advising the Trump transition and will be giving our expert analysis to the Trump administration and the new Congress. But we have an urgent need to finish 2016 strong. Your year-end donation will be doubled by a $250,000 Matching Grant to help us reach the goal of $975,000 needed as December began. The deadline is December 31 should you wish to give now. Thank you for your prayers and support. Have a blessed celebration of our Savior’s birth!
