Reminder: Pulpit Freedom Sunday is June 9


May 24, 2013

Please prayerfully consider joining the efforts of the Alliance for Defending Freedom, our partners in ministry: Pulpit Freedom Sunday 2013.

As you know, America is in the midst of a debate on the definition of marriage, the foundation for a stable society and a stable home. Americans desperately need to hear from their pastors what God says about marriage, the institution He created.

This year, our country faces one of the most pressing issues in our history as efforts are underway to radically redefine the institution of marriage, the relationship that God established long ago in the Garden of Eden even before the Fall of mankind.

With all this in mind, Pulpit Freedom Sunday 2013 will be a Sunday focused on marriage.

Even though this year is a non-election year, that does not mean it is a non-engagement year for pastors. The heartbeat of Pulpit Freedom Sunday has always been to remove legal restrictions on what a pastor can say from the pulpit and by doing so, to empower pastors to speak boldly and courageously on the pressing issues of our day that are addressed by Scripture.

  • When is Pulpit Freedom Sunday 2013?
    Pulpit Freedom Sunday will be June 9, 2013. We want every pastor to speak on that day declaring with one voice God's design for marriage. If you cannot speak on that day, pick another day that's close.
  • What will pastors do on Pulpit Freedom Sunday?
    Preach a sermon on God's design for marriage! Or expose the threat to religious freedom posed by same-sex "marriage. Or call out your elected officials that support redefining marriage.

Now, more than ever, Americans must hear from their pastors regarding what God says about marriage. Pastors have always guided the conscience of America through troubled times when the country faced a moral dilemma. Pastors must once again assume that role as the conscience of America, guiding her into biblical truth.
