This week we held another exciting and information-packed “Lunch With a Purpose” webinar. Our good friend and Wisconsin’s own Dr. Jake Jacobs was our special guest. Jake is author of Mobocracy: This Is What Democracy Looks Like, written in 2011 in the wake of all the protests against Governor Walker and the infamous Act 10.

If you weren’t able to attend but wanted to take part in this excellent webinar we have you covered!


We’ll let you know when our next “Lunch With a Purpose” is coming up so you can save the date!

2016-2020 Party Platform Comparisons

The fall election officially began this week with the Democratic Convention, which while headquartered in Milwaukee, will now be completely virtual. In addition to speeches from prominent Democrats, party delegates will approve the party platform. The proposed Democrat 2020 platform, among other things, calls for raising taxes, universal health care, gun control, restoring taxpayer funding for abortion, restricting school choice, passing the Equality Act and making America a world-leader in LGBT rights. Party platforms are typically reviewed and renewed every four years during the party conventions where presidential candidates are officially nominated. While the Democrats are adopting a new platform, the Republicans have decided to reaffirm the platform they adopted in 2016, which many who were involved with shaping that platform, say it is one of the best Republican platforms they have ever seen or worked on.

Party platforms aren’t just formal documents that gather dust on a shelf or are buried deep in a website. In essence, a party platform is a world-view statement. It provides a blueprint for policy initiatives at the state and the federal levels and states a party’s official position on key issues that impact American citizens. The words and ideas in party platform matter greatly.

Have you ever taken time to compare party platforms before you vote? Click HERE to see the most recent party platform comparison to help you decide how to best vote your values.  This chart compares the GOP’s 2016/2020 platform with the proposed 2020 Democrat platform on some core, foundational issues.

COMMIT TO VOTE! Pledge, right here and now, to committing your voice, your choice, your values by ballot in the upcoming elections! Click HERE to sign the pledge today.


ARE YOU ONE OF THE 300?

As we shared last week, we are asking 300 people across the state of Wisconsin to invest $1000 between now and December so that Wisconsin Family Action has all we need to complete our election work because this type of work is NOT included in our annual budget. (We realize some may be able to give less, and some may be able to give more.) That amount will allow us to impact this election and educate voters in the way we believe we are called to do and as we have planned.

We are truly thankful to all who have responded thus far. We are so encouraged! If you haven’t already given a donation in support of our work, we invite you to partner with us as part of “Gideon’s Army!” Call us at 888-378-7395 or CLICK HERE to make your secure donation TODAY! 


Cultural Changes Call For Biblical Guidance

Black Lives Matter; Cancel Culture; COVID-19 declarations, orders and guidelines; “woke” –these terms and more are swirling in today’s American culture. What do they mean? Are they related? How should Christians respond? What’s the real purpose behind these events and ideas? These are questions every American Christian should be asking and seeking to answer. This is especially true for parents of pre-teens, teens and college-aged youth. These are the groups that are especially vulnerable to the persistent siren call of an ungodly, unbiblical world-view.

The first place for answers is the Bible. For these current cultural issues, in God’s Word we look for principles that help guide us to Truth. Then we go to reliable human sources—pastors, bloggers, journalists, researchers, and organizations that have proven trustworthy over time. Parents, once you get to the truth on these matters, please make it a priority to share it in age-appropriate ways with your children.
