Statement from Timothy Head, Executive Director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition on the passing of Dr. Timothy LeHaye
“The nation has lost a true giant in the evangelical Christian movement with the passing of Timothy LaHaye,” said Faith & Freedom Coalition Executive Director Tim Head. “Everyone at Faith & Freedom mourns the loss of Dr. LaHaye and we offer our thoughts and prayers to Beverly and the entire family. Tim was a devoted husband, father, leader, minister and writer and will be sorely missed.”
Below is a statement from Ralph Reed, Chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, on the National Basketball Association’s decision to remove the 2017 NBA All-Star Game from the city of Charlotte, North Carolina.
“The NBA’s decision to punish the state of North Carolina simply because it protects the privacy of its citizens in bathrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities is an assault on common sense and strong families. The NBA should focus on basketball, not left-wing and special interest politics. Unless and until the NBA allows men to enter WNBA locker rooms, it should leave bathroom policy to state legislatures.”
Statement from Timothy Head, Executive Director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, on the release of Faith & Freedom radio ads this week in Missouri supporting unborn children and ensuring the safety of women.
“In the wake of yet another Supreme Court decision that threatens the safety of women and the lives of unborn children, Faith and Freedom Coalition re-urges all Americans that the status quo is not acceptable in our commitment to protect innocent human life. It is paramount for people of faith to know that their elected officials value life as the most sacred of rights and we encourage citizens of Missouri to thank committed champions like Missouri law professor Joshua Hawley for his uncompromising defense of those who have no voice.”
Below is a statement from Tim Head, Executive Director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, on today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision to strike down a 2013 Texas law that banned partial birth abortions, required abortion clinics to meet hospital surgical standards, and said that a doctor who performs abortions must have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the abortion facility.
“The U.S. Supreme Court once again failed to protect the rights, health and safety of women and unborn children today in its Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt decision. Texas and many other states have enacted common sense laws that protect the rights of the unborn and the health and safety of thousands of women subjected to the horrific conditions of abortion clinics across the country, and its shameful that the Supreme Court overturned these safeguards. The Court’s failure today is another example of the urgency to elect a pro-life President in November who will be responsible for filling the enormous vacancy left by Justice Scalia’s passing and possibly fill other seats on the Court. The pro-life community must also unite to elect legislators across the country who will work to protect women and unborn children.”
Statement from Timothy Head, Executive Director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, on the release of Faith & Freedom radio ads this week in Missouri in support of religious freedom.
“Historic global times such as these call for principled men and women from across our nation to rise up with one voice and beckon us to stand in the gap. Faith and Freedom Coalition offers our deepest appreciation to Senator Roy Blunt and Missouri professor Joshua Hawley and encourage citizens of Missouri to thank them for their unwavering commitment to and unrelenting defense of our first freedoms to hold to faith and to live that faith out in every facet of our lives.”
