Making A Difference In The Nation's Capital Through Prayer And Action

This Week in Court and on Capitol Hill

Nov 17, 2021

Two days ago, a federal judge heard arguments on the military class action case for which we have provided research to fight Joe Biden’s shot mandates.

Yesterday, we read of memos within the Department of Health & Human Services doing away with religious liberty protections established by the Trump administration. Between HHS and the shot mandates, our nation is facing a frontal assault against freedom.

We are assisting in any way we can to fight as many of these critical attacks as possible. When you partner with us, you help millions of people avoid these future problems. Right now, the impact of your gift will be DOUBLED through our Challenge Grant. — Your Faith & Liberty team

Right now in America, there is horrific, unthinkable abuse against some employees. One man pleading for help said his employer is forcing him to use a segregated entrance and leave the building if he needs to use the restroom! Why, you ask? Because of his religious exemption request regarding COVID-19.

Sam* said: "I am the only person in my location of 150 people to file for an exemption and receive it. But then only to be mistreated, while everyone else who did not file can go about their day without a mask and no discussions or segregated requirements. ... I am required to use a segregated entrance. I am also required to leave the building I work in to drive around the building, onto the highway, [through a] stoplight and back into a different parking lot, enter another door, down a hallway just to use the bathroom. There are some days I cannot make it quick enough and have to relieve myself outdoors in public."

This "most recent requirement to use a segregated door and off-site bathroom has caused me so much embarrassment and anguish that I can no longer take this abuse."

The pressure Sam is under is felt by millions of employees facing these mandates. A record 4.3 million people quit their jobs in August alone. CNBC and other media outlets are calling this movement the "Great Resignation," which is a euphemism as many companies are firing their employees over these mandates and then classifying their employee as "voluntary resigning."

Sam works for a company that generates 1/3 of the electricity worldwide! Between mandates pushing good employees out the door and new government demands on these businesses, the effects of these unconstitutional actions are just starting to hit the market.

At this moment, our nation is facing supply chain shortages we've not seen since the 1970s. In fact, there is bipartisan recognition of a growing problem of industry-wide shortages. Let's take the issue of truck drivers. MSNBC admitted there was an 80,000-person shortage in the trucking industry.

The truckers' union warned, shot mandates are creating "a workforce crisis for our industry and the communities, families and businesses we serve. In fact, should the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) ... continue on the paths they are on, the nation's motor carriers—who exclusively supply 80% of the country and move 70% of all US freight tonnage—could lose up to 37% of their drivers."

The only states NOT experiencing this kind of shortage are Florida and Mississippi, where both governors have mounted a strong defense against the mandates.

The window to STOP THESE GOVERNMENT DEMANDS is quickly closing. We are overwhelmed with the heavy volume and intense emotion of the tens of thousands of people who reach out to us.

We are involved in so many projects—including preparations for the 2021 Live Nativity on Capitol Hill--that we wanted to take a moment to share just one exciting aspect of our work in our nation's capital. One of our goals is to impact the hearts and minds of our national leaders with the truths of the gospel. That's why our Ministry Center in Washington, D.C., directly across the street from the U.S. Supreme Court, is open for prayer meetings and Bible studies on a daily basis. Last week, one Bible study led eight Capitol Hill interns to put their faith in Jesus. Starting this week, these new Christians will continue to be mentored throughout the remainder of their internship.

Some people who come to D.C. are changed by power and greed, yet our ministry stands as a beacon of light and hope so people who come to Capitol Hill can find Jesus. All of our efforts are supported by the donations of our friends and supporters. Your gifts are what make the change in these lives and many others possible. DOUBLE your gift with our Challenge Grant.

Thank YOU for being a part of this success!

Your missionaries to Washington, D.C.,

Peggy Nienaber, Vice President
Mat Staver, Chairman
Rev. Gregory Cox, Lead Missionary

P.S. Our Challenge Grant will effectively DOUBLE the impact of your donations!
