Take a Stand for the Freedom to Believe

One of the biggest threats America faces today is one that undermines the very fabric of our society. More than ever before in the history of our nation, the freedom to believe -- and to live according to those beliefs -- is under assault. Faithful Americans across the country are incurring the cost of what it means to stand on principle for their beliefs. Some have endured government punishment and others have lost their livelihoods.

We want to tell their stories so all can see that these are not the isolated incidents that the Left would have us believe.

Take a Stand for the Freedom to Believe!

While some political and corporate leaders have capitulated to the demands of the anti-religious Left, there are courageous men, women, and young people standing up for biblical truth all across the nation. That's why FRC launched FreeToBelieve.com. It's a place where you can learn about the stories of those who are standing in the face of government punishment and financial pressure, and as more modern-day heroes of faith are found, we will add their stories. I also ask you to ... (more)

Join Tony in Israel

Israel is unlike any other place on earth where spiritual understanding unfolds and faith deepens as you literally walk the paths of Jesus and the Patriarchs. The Bible comes alive as you sail on the Sea of Galilee, stand in the ruins of the Capernaum synagogue, meditate on the Mount of Beatitudes and overlook the vast Valley of Jezreel—the place of Armageddon.

FRC President Tony Perkins, invites you to travel with him along with Governor Bobby Jindal, former Senator Rick Santorum and Joel Rosenberg, who will join for part of Family Research Council’s first ever tour to Israel on October 27-November 6, 2015. Fox News commentator Todd Starnes will be with us the entire time. This will be a unique, one-of-a kind tour where you will not only explore the land of the Bible and the roots of our Christian faith, but you will hear directly from some of Israel’s political and religious leaders.

by Ken Blackwell and Rob Schwarzwalder
