Three Things You Need to Do This Week!
By Florida Faith and Freedom Staff
In Florida, as a person of faith, you can take three key steps this week to live out your beliefs: 1) Vote Early; 2) Ask your pastor to participate in the Believers and Ballots Initiative; and 3) Express your support for Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett.
Failing to Vote is the same as Voting—Against Yourself
Early voting started this week in many counties in Florida. You can learn more about early voting from the Florida Division of Elections by clicking here and find your local Supervisor of Elections here. Local supervisors will have all the information you need about the details of early voting locations and timing.
Florida Faith and Freedom Coalition encourages you to vote early and to vote your biblical worldview. Remember, failing to vote is the same as voting for the candidate, or party, whose values and plans for America you oppose. If you would never support a party’s major causes, such as promoting abortion, but you don’t vote against those causes on Election Day, you are directly supporting their cause.
Attention Pastors: Get Involved with Believers and Ballots!
Pastors have an awesome opportunity on Sunday, October 25 to encourage their congregations to go vote – on social media and from the pulpit. Pastors can and should tell worshippers to go vote their biblical worldview and deeply held values. It’s that simple—and make no mistake about it, this is an unquestionably and completely legal act. Pastors need not get bogged down in Trump versus Biden. One party is pro-abortion, and one party is pro-life.
That’s it. End of story.
Pastors are commanded to stand for those who are for life, (proverbs 31:4 and 8).
Please take less than 3 minutes to listen to this message from Pastor Jack Hibbs by clicking here. Then, make your voice count and stand for righteousness by participating in the “Believers and Ballots” initiative by clicking here to participate!
It’s Time to Confirm Amy Cony Barrett
Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings have ended, and Mitch McConnell says that Republicans have the votes to put her on the Supreme Court. But this will be a close vote! We know you want to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court with Judge Barrett, so it’s critical that you call Republican Senators such as Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins and demand that they support the nomination of Amy Coney Barret this week—not later, after the election.
The American Bar Association rated Barrett as highly qualified and her former students have confirmed her compassion and integrity. In a recent Judiciary Committee hearing, one former student with a disability testified that “should you confirm Amy Barrett, the country will receive something far greater than simply an unparalleled legal mind – it will gain the service of one of the kindest individuals I have ever known. Her brilliance is matched only by her compassion, and her integrity is unassailable. I am not speaking in mere abstractions here. Rather, I have experienced these characteristics first-hand, with life-changing results…In part because of her unwavering support, I am the first blind woman to serve as a law clerk on the Supreme Court of the United States.”
Let’s review the key activities for this week – one of the most important weeks in recent American history. First, make sure you vote early. Second, call and email your pastor and request that he/she get involved with the Believers and Ballots initiative. Third, tell Senator Collins of Maine and Senator Murkowski of Alaska to support the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court NOW!
