Hello Friends,

This week's elections remind us that ideas matter and that social conservatives have a very potent weapon to make their convictions heard: The vote.

One of the issues influencing the outcome of Tuesday's referendum on the past two years was the President's effort to repeal the current ban on homosexuals in the military. FRC President Tony Perkins commented on Mr. Obama's insistent post-election drive to overturn the ban in a statement you can access here.

As always, thank you for working to advance faith, family, and freedom.

Marriage and Family

FRC's Marriage and Religion Research Institute, led by Dr. Pat Fagan, is a premier venue for the understanding the contemporary American family. As Dr. Fagan notes, "The Marriage and Religion Research Institute (MARRI) organizes data in a form accessible to the lay reader. As the Institute makes clear, the overwhelming majority of social science data supports the premise that the intact married family that worships weekly is the greatest generator of human and social goods and the core strength of the United States, and a norm to be considered again, first for those who worship God, but also for all men and women of good will."

Three times annually, MARRI offers a report on its research concerning the American family, which you can access by clicking here.
