Dear Friends,

As the father of two Boy Scouts, I was grateful for this week’s announcement by the Boy Scouts of America that they would retain their ban on homosexuals from serving in leadership.

This isn’t about hate, intolerance, or bigotry. It is about:

** Protecting boys from predation. Historically, many thousands of boys were sexually abused while in Scouts. Not all homosexuals are predators - but all but a small number of the predators who have molested boys and young men in Scouting have been homosexual. All parents want their children protected from sexual assault, which is why the prohibition on homosexuals in Scouting helps prevent the participation of men who would take advantage of trusting young boys.

** Fiscal sanity. The BSA has paid-out tens of millions of dollars to boys who have been abused and to their families. Perhaps the advocates of homosexuality within Boy Scouts will offer to pay the organization’s massive litigation insurance premiums; so far, I’ve not heard such an offer made.

** A private organization upholding the moral standards on which it was founded. To this day, every Boy’s Life magazine features a Bible story, and biblical values of loyalty, honor, truthfulness, etc. are celebrated as Scout norms. The Scout promises to do his best to do his duty “to God and my country.” That moral foundation is why, in 2004, the Scouts’ National Council issued this statement: “Boy Scouts of America believes that homosexual conduct is inconsistent with the obligations in the Scout Oath and Scout Law to be morally straight and clean in thought, word, and deed.” Moreover, 70 percent of Scout troops are chartered by religious institutions, the majority of which teach that non-marital sexual intimacy is immoral. Are those who would open Scouts to homosexuality prepared to see hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of boys lose their troops because the churches and synagogues that sponsor them will not accept homosexuals in Scouting leadership?

The final line of the Scout Law is an affirmation of a Scout’s obligation to be “reverent.” The leadership of the Boy Scouts of America has affirmed its commitment to revere God and protect boys over the demands of the secular elite and homosexual activists. May the God of the Bible bless them for it.

Sincerely,

Rob Schwarzwalder

Senior Vice President

Dear Friends:

Last week’s Supreme Court decision on President Obama’s health care plan has been the subject of much commentary and controversy. Along with the extensive legal and political commentary about it, a longer-term view might be in order.

John Steele Gordon, writing in Commentary, offers a valuable historical perspective:

Never before that I know of, has a federal tax been placed on inactivity. If you buy something, you pay a sales tax. If you earn income, you pay an income tax. If you do business as a corporation, you pay an excise tax. Now, if you don’t buy health insurance, you pay a tax on not doing so. What else then can be taxed? Not exercising?

This seems far afield of where the brave men and women of 1776 wanted our country ever to be. But it’s in their spirit - one committed to an ordered liberty based on rights given by God, not the government - that conservatives, undaunted, press ahead.

We owe our Founders nothing less.

Sincerely,

Rob Schwarzwalder

Dear Friends:

Good things are happening in government - state government, that is.

  • In Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal signed legislation requiring “the fetal heartbeat be made audible to, and ultrasound images be displayed for review by, a pregnant woman at least 24 hours prior to an abortion.”
  • In Michigan, the state legislature has approved what some pro-life leaders are calling “the largest collection of pro-life legislation ever addressed at one time” in the Wolverine State.
  • In New York, a bipartisan coalition came together to “again make viewing all child porn online illegal under state law.”

Conservatives should not be surprised that the federal system established by our Founders - one where states have great constitutional latitude to order their own affairs - actually works. The closer government is to the people, the greater its accountability to them.

The powers delegated by (the) Constitution to the federal government are few and defined,” wrote James Madison in Federalist 45. “Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.”

Those advancing faith, family, and freedom in the states are proving the validity of Mr. Madison’s argument every day. Let’s take heart from them.

Sincerely,
Rob Schwarzwalder
Senior Vice-President
Family Research Council

P.S. Earlier this week, FRC Action President Tony Perkins was joined by national leaders in the fight against “new federal regulations that would force health-care plans to cover abortion drugs, contraceptives and sterilizations.” Be sure to watch it here.

Dear Friends,

Recently in Bekasi, Indonesia, “a mob of 300 Islamic extremists threw bags of urine and ditchwater, rotten eggs, stones and dirt” at Christians trying to hold an Ascension Day service. In places as diverse as northern Nigeria, Vietnam, North Korea, Egypt, and China, believers are persecuted daily for proclaiming their belief in Jesus.

Could such persecution ever happen here in the U.S.? As far-fetched as this might seem, it’s not too much of a leap to ask if the seeds for such oppression are not being sewn. From the Obama Administration’s contraception mandate to the recent New Mexico court ruling that a local photographer be fined for refusing to photograph a same-sex “wedding,” violations of our cherished religious liberty are becoming increasingly widespread and, thereby, increasingly dangerous.

Last week, FRC Senior Fellow Ken Blackwell gave an eloquent address at a major Washington, D.C. conference on the growing threats to America’s “first freedom.” As Ken noted, many of the battles for religious liberty are taking place at the state level. Contact your local elected representatives to learn what’s being done either to threaten or strengthen the freedom of religion in your home state - and get primed to engage, graciously but firmly, in the struggle for it.

Sincerely,

Rob Schwarzwalder
Senior Vice-President
Family Research Council

Dear Friends,

Rapid change has become the norm in everything from technology to culture. A New York court has issued a ruling that once would have been unimaginable: that child pornography is acceptable to view online. An American President applauds same-sex “marriage.” The federal government is trying to force religious-based hospitals and colleges to provide abortion drugs in their insurance plans.

Pastors, and the churches they serve, can play a critical role in helping families stand against the onslaught of a decaying and invasive culture. That’s why this week, FRC’s Church Ministries division will be holding its annual pastor’s conference in Washington, D.C., “Watchmen on the Wall.” You can view the event live here. National leaders will be talking about how churches can advance and defend faith, family, and freedom in their communities, in their states, and across the nation. It’s a unique annual event, one worth viewing - and encouraging your church leaders to watch, as well.

In the midst of social erosion, we would do well to reflect on the words of the late Anglican pastor and theologian John Stott: “We should not ask, ‘What is wrong with the world?’ for that diagnosis has already been given. Rather, we should ask, ‘What has happened to the salt and light?’” That “salt and light” would be all who know Jesus Christ. To that end, let’s stand together, in grace and truth, for those virtues that alone can inform a good and just society that benefits everyone.

Sincerely,

Rob Schwarzwalder

Senior Vice-President

Family Research Council

P.S. Last week, FRC hosted psychologist Dr. Brenda Hunter and her daughter Kristin Blair for a lecture based on their new book, From Sexting to Santa, a practical, real-life guide to raising your children in a morally hostile environment. Watch their exceptional presentation here.

Dear Friends,

A few days before she died of adenocarcinoma (glandular cancer), my mother had me sit down and help her make phone calls. She could not see well enough to find the numbers, so she asked me to do it.

The calls were to a list of people in her church who were ill or in some kind of need.

This was characteristic of my Mom, whose selflessness was as profound as it was quiet. She would never think to boast to others about her commitment to sharing the good news about her Savior, her works of compassion, or her burden for the poor at home and abroad. She simply lived these things, behind the scenes.

To say that motherhood is a noble calling understates its importance. FRC celebrated mothers this year with a wonderful Webcast on the Pregnancy Resource Center movement. FRC President Tony Perkins’ moving interviews with policy leaders and with young women who have benefitted from their local PRC’s can be viewed at Pregnancy Resource Centers: Celebrating Mother’s Day Every Day.

Walking into a quiet room and finding my mother on her knees was not uncommon for me. But she would have been embarrassed if anyone else had seen her - letting anyone but the closest of friends know about her private devotion would, in her mind, have been unseemly self-display.

I remember my mother’s prayers,” wrote Abraham Lincoln. “They have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”

This is a legacy I share with Mr. Lincoln. It is one my children will receive from my wife. Can a mother give any more valuable gift to her children?

Happy Mother’s Day,

Rob Schwarzwalder
Senior Vice-President
Family Research Council

P.S. President Obama has announced what has been anticipated for some time: His support for counterfeit, same-sex “marriage.” Read FRC’s take on the President’s comments here.

Dear Friends,

The outpouring of grief over the passing of Chuck Colson has been moving. It was for his courageous and extensive ministries that FRC gave him its James C. Dobson Vision and Leadership Award in 2008.

Somewhat neglected in the tributes has been Mr. Colson’s deep commitment to defending the persecuted, providing aid to the needy, and bringing justice to the developing world.

University of Texas scholar Will Inboden notes that, “in the 1990s Colson helped lead a broad movement of American evangelicals into activism on an array of foreign-policy issues, including religious persecution, human trafficking, the HIV/AIDS pandemic, genocide in Sudan, and human rights atrocities in North Korea.”

Dr. Inboden continues that “it would not be an exaggeration to say that the State Department offices of International Religious Freedom, Trafficking in Persons, Global Aids Coordinator, Special Envoy for Sudan, and North Korea Human Rights would not exist today without Colson’s work in generating support for their creation.”

In themselves, these achievements would have been so formidable as to constitute a remarkable legacy. Taken with his many other initiatives, Chuck Colson’s ministry has been historic.

Mr. Colson said once, “I have the only pardon I need” - the pardon won through trusting in the death of Jesus Christ for his sins and the new life won through His resurrection.

To borrow from Hebrews 11:4, Chuck Colson, being dead, yet speaketh.

Sincerely,

Rob Schwarzwalder

Senior Vice President

Family Research Council

Dear Friends,

South Dakota is big. A vast expanse of prairies and farmland, it is known for the Black Hills, the Badlands, and the Corn Palace in Mitchell.

But recently the home of Mt. Rushmore earned notoriety for another achievement: It became the 15th state to enact legislation not to include abortion in its federally-mandated insurance plans.

There is more good news from the states: In Wisconsin, Gov. Scott Walker has signed a measure prohibiting abortion coverage in the state exchange of health plans and also an informed consent/non-coercion abortion bill. He also signed a bill that “requires teachers in schools that offer sex education to stress abstinence as the only sure way to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.”

And in my home state of Washington, a measure that would have required “all individuals to purchase and all businesses sell abortion insurance coverage on a maternity plan” has died an unlamented legislative death.

Those who believe in a culture where the rights to life and conscience are honored can take heart from these victories. They are not comprehensive and, like everything else in politics, are battles that probably will have to be re-fought in coming years. But they show two things: (1) Incremental wins are important - they make a difference in the lives of many - and (2) elections matter.

I would urge those who argue that that voting at election time is inconsequential and that all politicians are alike to reflect on these things.

Your vote counts. So do your prayers. Let’s not lose heart, but keep moving forward.

Sincerely,

Rob Schwarzwalder

Senior Vice-President

Family Research Council

Dear Friends,

This week the Supreme Court spent three days hearing arguments in a legal case. That case, of course, is President Obama’s health care legislation.

The Obama plan is fraught with problems. It requires, under penalty of law, every American to hold health insurance. This is a mandate - a command - unparalleled in U.S. history. As Justice Kennedy noted in his comments, if implemented the Obama health law “changes the relationship of the federal government to the individual in a very fundamental way.”

The Director of FRC’s Center for Religious Liberty, constitutional scholar Ken Klukowski, JD, has been in the Court to listen to the arguments. You can read his analyses here. It was Ken who first raised the issue of the mandate’s inherent relationship with every other facet of the Obama health law in litigation he submitted for FRC last year (the issue of severability), and which is now regarded as central to the case by both proponents and opponents of Obamacare (read Ken’s legal brief here).

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli wrote that during yesterday’s hearing, Justice Ginsburg, no friend of conservatives, stated that “taxes are designed to raise revenues, but penalties” - fines for not having insurance, or providing it if you are an employer - “are to compel behavior, and if the penalty works perfectly (i.e., everyone buys health insurance), the penalty will raise no revenue at all” In other words, contrary to the President’s argument, the taxing power included in the U.S. Constitution is not the same as the power to impose a penalty for not participating in a commercial exercise (go to www.cuccinelli.com to listen to an audio of the AG’s remarks).

On Tuesday evening of this week, FRC Action held a webcast titled, “On Trial: Freedom vs. Government Healthcare.” Hosted by FRC Action President Tony Perkins, the forum included Members of Congress, leading medical experts, Ken Klukowski, and AG Cuccinelli, and offered first-hand insight into the Court’s deliberations.

What’s at stake is whether or not Uncle Sam can command us to do its bidding in any area of public or private life - it comes down to that. That stake is sufficiently high to drive all of us low - to our knees, to be specific.

Rob Schwarzwalder

Dear Friends,

Vanderbilt University scholar Dr. Carol Swain, in her recent book Be the People, reminds us that, “People across the globe are still willing to risk their lives to live on American soil. The vast numbers of foreign citizens wishing to enter the United States, whether legally or illegally, tells us we are an exceptional nation.”

As usual, Dr. Swain is right: There is no country like ours, for which we should be deeply grateful - and ever vigilant. Family Research Council exists to strengthen families, protect the unborn and their mothers, sustain religious liberty, and uphold the moral convictions that have infused our nation with hope and prosperity.

One of our top priorities is restoring fatherhood to its central role in our society. Last week, FRC was privileged to host Pastor Freddie Scott, author of The Dad I Wish I Had, as he discussed the crisis in American fatherhood, and what we can do about it. Watch Pastor Scott’s gripping presentation here.

Fathers, mothers, children - all Americans - benefit when integrity is clean, respect is mutual, and virtue is exalted and practiced. “Our forebears balanced a commitment to virtue and justice with a deep awareness of the moral conflict that lies at the heart of humanity,” writes Dr. Swain. “In doing so, they forged a nation unlike any other - with a deep sense of reverence for the human spirit, yet deferential to the God who weighs the affairs of men.”

Will we, in our time, return to that vision? Let’s keep advancing it and not lose heart. America - and the culture we bequeath to our children - is well worth the effort.

Sincerely,

Rob Schwarzwalder

Senior Vice President

Family Research Council
