The Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance (See below for latest blog posts.)

Supporting family values in Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park

Welcome to the website of the Prince William and Manassas Family Alliance (PWMFA). We are a grassroots organization of citizens of Prince William County and the independent cities of Manassas and Manassas Park, Virginia, dedicated to supporting and promoting the values inherent in the concept of family. Learn more about us.

Where they stand

  • The principal goal of the Family Alliance is to help Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park voters learn more about candidates seeking to represent them in public office. Our focus is especially directed at the County and City school boards, the Board of County Supervisors and Manassas and Manassas Park City Councils. We also concentrate on State legislative candidates with the aim of informing the voting public on where candidates stand regarding key issues affecting the family. Here are some of the projects we are currently undertaking:
    • We’re soliciting the positions of candidates seeking local public offices in both the General and Primary elections in the 2020 election cycle and publicize the results.
    • We maintain an active website (www.familyallianceonline.org) to draw attention to school issues, elections and the need for Christian leadership on issues affecting the family.
    • We seek to build a network of church contacts throughout Prince William and the two cities (Manassas and Manassas Park) with the aim of promoting the institution of the family and an educated electorate.

Some of our Achievements

  • Led the successful campaign for the Marriage Amendment in 2006, carrying Prince William County and Manassas by a larger margin than statewide.
  • Led the successful fight against off-track betting in Manassas Park in 2004.
  • Distributed Voter Guides to Prince William County churches area.
  • Successfully promoted internet filtering in public libraries and abstinence-based family life education.

YOU MIGHT PAY FOR MEDICAID ABORTIONS IN THE FUTURE

 

Here we have newborn baby on scale (from here). Due to abortion, many babies, however, are aborted. Can you picture our Lord putting the United States on the scales of His justice?

Victoria Cobb, president of The Family Foundation of Virginia, warns that the outcome of the November 3 election will determine whether or not taxpayers pay for Medicare abortions in the future.

In an email released October 21 (Family Foundation Action, familyfoundation@familyfoundation.org, Action Alert: Reject Taxpayer Funded Abortion, October 21, 2020), she focused on a virtual meeting held by a Virginia House Health, Welfare and Institutions work group that discussed HB 1445. The bill would expand Medicaid coverage to pay for abortions regardless of reason. Currently, only abortions of pregnancies resulting from incest, rape or to save the mother’s life are covered.

When Richmond legislators convene in 2021, after the election, how we vote November 3 will determine next steps:

If President Trump wins a second term, the Weldon amendment that protects health care providers who refuse to perform, accommodate or assist with certain health care services will remain in effect.

If Joe Biden is elected, it is likely he will eliminate the Weldon amendment that would ultimately require health care providers to pay for abortions.

Also, on the horizon in Virginia is a proposed right to abortion being added to our state constitution, and to get rid of parental consent for minors who seek an abortion. In all cases, that means you, the tax payer, would fund abortions!

It further means your parental rights would be seized by giving the government more control over your children and their medical rights. Are you willing to concede your role as a parent?

So much is at stake in this election! Your vote is critically important! So is your influence as you urge family members, friends and neighbors to vote, as well. The lives of yet unconceived babies are at stake. Your vote can help make the difference between life and death!

Please VOTE…for LIFE!

DON’T WAIT TO VOTE

If you have yet to do so, I want to encourage you to vote. I have been working as an election officer in support of Early In-Person Voting. The process is efficient, and it looks just like what you will see on election day. Here is a link that describes it, pwcvotes.org. Here is some information from that website.

8 Vote Centers
Haymarket Gainesville Library
Main Office Manassas
DMV Woodbridge
McCoart (Curbside Only)
Ferlazzo
Piney Branch Elementary School
Colgan High School
Dumfries Town Hall

All open Mon thru Thursday
8:30am to 7:00pm
Friday and Saturday
8:30am to 5:00pm

Effectively, if you wait until Election Day, you will be putting off voting until the last minute. Not a good idea if you want your guy to win.

Note that we are not asking you to agree with us or to vote the way we would vote. What we abhor is indifference. Whether we like it or not government exists, and it derives its power from us. All of us pay taxes. Therefore, for the sake of our family, friends, neighbors, and countrymen, we each have an obligation to exercise control over OUR government.

We expect the turnout in the coming week to be large. The turnout for early voting already has been immense. Seems to be a popular way to avoid long lines on Election Day. Check out the stats from the Virginia Public Access Project (vpap.org), EARLY VOTING 2020.

God bless you and your families.

HAVE YOU BEEN CHALLENGED TO EXAMINE YOUR ASSUMPTIONS?

We need your help. Why? We need to help each other see and hear a point of view which we may rarely hear from. We need to ask each other to explain why we believe what we each believe. How should we treat each other?

Consider these seemingly easy questions

  • Why is it moral for our government to tax us and our neighbors. How does forcing people to give part of their earnings to the government to spend differ from stealing?
  • What gives our currency any value? Why are we willing to exchange pieces of paper for food, shelter and clothing? Our currency is not backed by anything of value, is it?
  • Why do human beings have “rights”? What “rights” do we have? Who is the ultimate guarantor of human “rights”?

Have you thought about these questions? Have your children? If not, why not? Is it not obvious we should have strong opinions about the answers to such questions? Yet here of late Americans have been slowly abandoning freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Powerful interests are doing all they can to suppress Conservative thought. Hence Everett Piper observes:

Over the past couple of months, while the world has been distracted by all-things-COVID-19, a very important bit of news slipped under our radar and went virtually unnoticed. The contemporary church sold its soul to the Devil for a pot of political porridge. 

Consider the evidence.

Last week “pro-life” evangelicals across the land started stumbling over themselves to endorse a political party and a candidate who is openly against life and against evangelicals. (continued here (washingtontimes.com))

Why would Christian churches abandon their support for teachings that the Bible clearly demands that we must uphold? Why? Consider all the firepower Christians now encounter against their faith in Jesus Christ. It is about power. What we believe about God profoundly affects the type of government we will accept. That is why:

  • Our schools are largely dominated by Liberal unions.
  • Our news media is largely dominated by Liberal news organs.
  • Big Tech Companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter censor and suppress Conservative websites and promote Liberal websites.

The pervasive dominance of Liberal beliefs has created a big problem. Americans know little about their Christian heritage. That is why:

  • We live among people who insist Christianity — the Bible — is all about the perpetuation of a myth.
  • We live among people who won’t suffer us speak of our God.
  • We live among people who insist upon teaching their truths to both their children and our children.

Will the Internet solve this problem? Does the Internet allow the free expression of ideas? Yes and no. Conservatives can publish what they want, but Big Tech companies like Facebook and Twitter actively censor Conservative content. Google, on the hand, buries Conservative content under Liberal content. That is why we are asking you to share this post, especially the portion that speaks of our voter guides. To get pass the censors we need to help each other.

We have two pages listing voter guides.

We hope you will examine both our voter guides as well the list of Christian voter guides that we have provided. We hope you will share what we have put together.

Do we expect our voter guides to profoundly alter anyone’s mind? No. However, we do hope what we have put together will encourage those who are sitting on the fence to vote and vote early (see pwcvotes.org). We would all do well to avoid the possibility of long lines on election day.

One last thought. Do you find it difficult to believe Google is suppressing Conservative Internet sites? Then check out the following articles and videos.
