A REVIVED THE PRINCE WILLIAM-MANASSAS FAMILY ALLIANCE

During the last couple year of the Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance (PWMFA) has not been active.

  • Key members focused their efforts elsewhere, principally on the presidential election.
  • Because public support was perceived as waning, there was little enthusiasm.
  • We did not fully realize the danger of doing nothing.

    The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing. — source disputed (from here)

In the last couple of years our county has become a roiling battleground with respect to issues related to the family. These issues include:

  • Curriculum/school policy changes that foster gender confusion, tolerance for sex outside marriage, disrespect for parents or religious convictions.
  • The lack of character education.
  • Biased instruction in civics and history education.

As a nonpartisan organization, the PWMFA does support specific candidates. However, we can take specific positions on the issues, and we can work with other committed citizens to help inform the electorate of the candidate’s positions. Then we can pray that an informed voters will vote wisely. Therefore, seeing the danger of doing nothing, the PWMFA has renewed its commitment to create public awareness of problematic developments in the schools of the county and cities such as Family Life Education. Please join us.

Support our efforts! Visit our “Get Involved” section to join the PWMFA or to make an “online” contribution.

VOTING AND THE NIRVANA FALLACY

voterTomorrow, November 4th, is election day. Have you studied the candidates? Do you they all disgust you so much you cannot stand to vote for any of them? Are you waiting for the perfect candidate? Then you have fallen for a logical fallacy, the nirvana fallacy.

Because there are no perfect human beings, we don’t get to vote for perfect human beings. As the Apostle Paul wrote, “there is no one righteous, not even one” (Romans 3:10-18).

Because we must make someone responsible, in any election, whether we choose to vote or not, one of the candidates will win. And if we choose not to vote, we will still be held responsible, particularly if we might have known which one of the candidates would have done better than the others.

Therefore, please do not shirk your responsibility to yourself, your family, and your community. Please take the time to study the candidates and vote.

For information on the candidates, please visit this link, 2014 ELECTIONS.

THE NEXT MARRIAGE TABOO BEGINS TO TOPPLE

crossWith the legalization of same-sex “marriage,” what opponents predicted has already begun to happen. What is the latest taboo to fall?  New York appeals court unanimously OKs some incestuous marriages from Life Site News.

The New York state Court of Appeals has trimmed back a state law banning incestuous marriages, allowing an uncle and niece to marry one another. The decision allows the woman, a Vietnamese immigrant, to avoid deportation.

Huyen Nguyen, 34, married her 38-year-old uncle Vu Truong in 2000. She also became a conditional permanent resident of the United States.

Six years later, she applied to become a permanent resident of the United States based on her marriage to Truong, who is a U.S. citizen. Since the passage of the 1965 Immigration Act, the U.S. government has given preferential treatment to relatives of American citizens. (continued here)

What is the problem with not making about children, about the proper way to raise children? If marriage is not for the sake of children, then marriage no longer exists to protect children.

What does marriage become if it is not for the sake of children? Then instead of being anything approaching a holy or sacred institution, marriage just becomes a means of legal authorization (social approval) for the exploitation of children.  For reasons we should not have to explain, Christians have frowned upon family member regarding each other as potential sex partner. Hence, we have a taboo against incest.

Do you care about the future of the family? Then please VOTE!
