On behalf of myself and the entire First Liberty team, I’d like to personally wish you and your family a Merry Christmas.
Please take a moment to watch the video below, a special message of gratitude to YOU for supporting and trusting us in this unprecedented year:
Thanks to your unwavering prayers and support, 2021 has been an incredible year filled with opportunities and triumphs for religious liberty. We litigated three (3) cases at the U.S. Supreme Court and delivered well over a dozen victories for people of faith and houses of worship across the country.
With this momentum of significant victories, I’m confident we can continue winning the fight to uphold faith and freedom, especially for such a time as this when religious hostility and cancel culture are running rampant across America.
This year has proven that enemies of freedom are relentless, ready to undermine and attack our constitutional foundations at every opportunity. And you can be sure that these attacks will not stop anytime soon. On the contrary, this battle will only intensify.
But the challenges that are ahead, I believe, are better seen as opportunities. And the unparalleled rate of victory we’ve had this year gives us more reasons to be hopeful and optimistic about the future.
Because tomorrow is Christmas Day, this is a perfect time to reflect on the eternal hope provided by our faith. Despite the tension and attacks on religious freedom and our nation’s founding principles, God has shown time after time this year that He’s the one ultimately in control.
And for that I am most thankful.
As 2021 comes to an end, I am ever grateful that YOU were part of First Liberty’s growing army of supporters who—instead of being daunted by this religious freedom crisis—rallied around us with courage, resilience and tenacity as we fought wave after wave of crucial legal battles for our most cherished freedoms.
All our success during this year reveals something very special: When we work as one team, in one fight, with one purpose, through God’s grace, we can accomplish great things.
Again, thank you for being a faithful supporter of First Liberty.
Looking ahead, I’m encouraged that 2022 will be a year when we’ll come TOGETHER and see a resurgence of religious freedom unlike any in our lifetime.
A blessed holiday season to you, your family and loved ones.
