TODAY: Seven Bills Related to Life in Public Hearing 

Today we are providing testimony on seven bills that in some way deal with the life issue. Micah Pearce, the Executive Vice President of Wisconsin Family Action, will be presenting the testimony. Julaine and other team members are speaking at the Wisconsin Christian School Association’s annual teachers/administrators’ conference in the Wisconsin Dells. The hearing where Micah will be giving testimony is in the Assembly Health Committee, chaired by Rep. Joe Sanfelippo (R-New Berlin).

The hearing notice is HERE. The hearing will be broadcast live at wiseye.org. You can read the written testimony HERE. The text of the bill and much more information is available HERE.

Pictured left is Micah Pearce presiding over a mock public hearing. at our summer camp for teens, LEAD Wisconsin. You can partner with us in defending God’s plan for marriage, family, life and religious freedom in Wisconsin by financially investing HERE.


AT THE CAPITOL: Bill Introduced Protecting Natural Immunity

State Representative Cody Horlacher (R-Mukwonago) is introducing a bill that ensures that natural immunity is protected in the State of Wisconsin. Horlacher says that with the increase in employer-mandated vaccinations, the law needs to protect natural immunity as an answer to vaccine and testing requirements. This bill allows individuals to provide proof of a positive COVID-19 test or proof of antibodies for COVID-19 in order to comply with any employer-required COVID-19 vaccines or testing. The bill is currently being circulated for co-sponsors.

Julaine Appling applauded Horlacher’s effort to promote individual freedom: “Representative Horlacher is attempting to bring some common sense back to this entire issue. Individual freedom when it comes to health-care decisions is vitally important. This proposal gives employers an additional way to protect workers without trouncing on the rights of individual employees and threatening their livelihood in the process.”

For those of you who are facing difficult situations at work related to the COVID-19 vaccine we have recently updated this blog post with current resources so that you can respond clearly and effectively.


Why You Should Talk about William Tyndale with your Children

Tuesday was an important day in Christian history. Tradition holds that on October 6, 1536, Englishman William Tyndale was martyred. Tyndale was a leader in the Protestant Reformation and gave us one of the first English translations of the Bible. His theology put him at odds with the Roman Catholic Church and the King of England when he openly opposed Henry the VIII’s planned annulment. His last words are reported as being, “Lord! Open the King of England’s eyes.”

Julaine Appling encouraged families to make it a point to discuss William Tyndale this week, “William Tyndale is someone all Christians should know about. He passionately believed the Bible needed to be available to everyone, not just Catholic priests. To make that happen, the Scripture needed to be in a language even common people could read and understand. Tyndale is a great subject for family discussions. This week is a perfect time for talk of Tyndale at dinner!”

Good information about Tyndale is available HERE.

If you read aloud to your family or have a teen who loves reading, The Hawk That Dare Not Hunt by Day by Scott O’Dell is a fabulous story of Tyndale’s life.


WATCH: Science Proves We Are a Masterpiece Before We Are Born!

“Modern medicine and science tell us more about the development of each human being from fertilization to birth than ever before,” says Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) in the introduction of its new interactive and fascinating website, Voyage of Life.

The website prominently features a 47-second video showing the development of a human from conception to ready for birth. But that’s just the beginning of what is in this website. CLI says says this website has “the most accurate, scientific, and up-to-date presentation of human life being knit together in a mother’s womb.”

God knits us together in our mother’s womb; we are fearfully and wonderfully made. This has always been true. But now we get to see through the eyes of science. We would do well to watch and share this website with friends and family as a celebration of God’s Word being forever true! Enjoy the incredible look at the miracle of life.

Speaking of celebrating life, one of Wisconsin’s pro-life pregnancy care centers and the only adoption agency of its kind in Wisconsin, Evangelical Child and Family Agency in New Berlin is hosting a benefit dinner on Friday, November 16, 2021 to support Moms, Dads, Children, Babies & the Unborn. You can donate to the silent auction or register to attend HERE.


Flying Flags, Censoring Religious Views and the Constitution

Christian Post reported late last week, “The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal regarding whether city officials in Boston, Massachusetts, can reject a request to fly a Christian flag at its City Hall.”

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “Censoring religious viewpoints in a public forum where secular viewpoints are permitted is unconstitutional and this case will set national precedent.”

Julaine Appling commented on this case and Governor Evers’ flag-flying decisions: “This is an interesting case in light of Governor Evers flying the Rainbow Pride flag over the state capitol in June. Courts generally agree government must be viewpoint neutral, which means if it allows one group to express a view, then it must allow others to do so, including religious viewpoints. We’ll see if that holds when it comes to flag-flying on public buildings.”
