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 2019 election cycle.
    • 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.
    • We hold candidate forums/interviews  to give pastors and candidates an opportunity to explore the views of candidates or potential candidates.

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.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR CHILD’S COLLEGE ORIENTATION

Virginia Tech’s Burruss Hall (from here)

Heard about this today on WMAL’s Larry O’Conner Show. Since it is a sign of what parents should expect when they send their children off to college, it seems highly appropriate for a website like this one to share.

What is it about? It is about a proud mom attending college orientation with her son, My Son’s Freshman Orientation At Virginia Tech Was Full Of Leftist Propaganda by Peggy Nance. Here is how it starts.

Are taxpayers funding academic institutions to indoctrinate our kids? That disturbing and irresistible question plagued me during the long drive home last week from college orientation. I doubt I am alone in this wake-up call.

Like many other women, I just sent my youngest child to college. I am so proud of him and his decision to join the Army ROTC and study engineering. He will be attending a revered Virginia institution known for its military Corps of Cadets program. (continued here)

Why are a bunch of people we don’t want teaching our children running our schools, colleges, universities? That is not complicated to explain. Instead of paying the entire cost of our children’s education, we decided to raid the public treasury and get some of that government money. When we did that, we put politicians in charge. Because politicians spend the money, they make all the decisions, and politicians cannot be trusted.

When we spend our own money, we “cast a vote”. For example, car makers compete to satisfy their customers. That is us because we spend the money they want. Because we control the spending and vote with our dollars, car makers make cars we want to buy. When we “give” our money to politicians to spend, special interests will tempt them by casting their “votes” with legal bribes, campaign donations. When “money talks” people listen. Thus, special interests get the schools, colleges, and universities they want, not the schools, colleges, and universities parents want for their children.

THE EMPEROR HAS A NEW SET OF CLOTHES

The two con men enjoying the success of their little caper (from here).

Once upon a time there lived an emperor who vainly loved wearing finely tailored clothes. In an effort to out-do himself, he hired two designers that said they could make the most beautiful and elaborate clothes he had ever worn. In reality, the designers were con-men who convinced the emperor they were using fabric so fine it was visible only to the elite and his whole-hearted supporters. Anyone else was either unfit for his job or hopelessly stupid.

All along, the designers just pretended to tailor the garments. At fittings, no one, not even the emperor or his ministers, could really see the alleged “clothes”, but they pretended they did for fear of appearing unfit for their positions.

At last the designers brought the finished suit to the palace and the emperor stripped to his bare skin. The fashionistas made an elaborate scene of dressing the emperor in his new outfit. When he was fully ‘attired,’ the king strutted through the city in a royal procession so all his subjects could admire him. Not wanting to appear as odd-balls or stupid, citizens along the route went along with the game. Finally, a kid in the crowd hollered, “He’s naked!” and everyone joined in his hue and cry. The emperor realized what they shouted was true, but he kept walking anyway.

That old Danish fairytale is being relived today, as gay activists weave a tale about a person’s biological gender, obvious at birth, being no longer correct. They contend that true gender is determined by how a person perceives one’s self at a given moment, not by a DNA test in a laboratory. In other words, hormones and genitalia are not clues to a person’s real gender. In so saying, they deny the apparent for the incoherent as being truth. They are trying to redefine reality.

They bring their “new set of clothes” to school boards, selling members on the assumption that if a child thinks he or she is not the gender identified at birth, the child is right. They must be called by the appropriate pronoun and be allowed in the bath or locker room of their ‘felt’ gender.

Moreover, con-men have sold some local or state governments on the idea that kids should be given hormones to change them to their desired gender, if that’s what they want, even without permission from the parents for the change in process. And, although adults in their right minds recognize how foolish the whole scenario is, they don’t challenge it, because the ‘designers’ call them names like homophobes or worse.

The New Testament says, “For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools…” (Romans 1:21-22). When America voted God out of the schools by banning Bible reading and prayer, we put our country on this downward slope. When we began murdering babies in the womb by the millions, we opened the door to all the moral foolishness that is happening in our nation today.

But the tide is turning and each of us can have a part. When you vote in the Virginia elections on November 5, be certain you cast your ballot for candidates who are family-oriented, pro-life, and will protect those values in the execution of their public office. It’s what God honors. Above all, pray for our officials. Being a politician at any level is not easy, especially when con-men try to sell them a bill of goods that will leave them naked!
