Dear Friends,

As we go throughout the year, there is no shortage of news concerning issues vital to social conservatives. FRC has, as usual, been working hard on many of these issues, seeking to advance both the needs of families and the priorities of the Judeo-Christian tradition in the public square. Here are a few of our recent efforts:

Marriage on Trial: State Laws Defining Marriage as the Union of One Man and One Woman Are Valid under the Constitution of the United States: Peter Sprigg, FRC's Senior Fellow for Policy Studies, wrote this paper to explain why state definitions of marriage as the union of one man and one woman are consistent with the U.S. Constitution and with existing Supreme Court precedents.

Understanding Windsor: What the Supreme Court Ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act Did -- and Did Not -- Say: This paper by Peter Sprigg examines the court case, United States v. Windsor and the ramifications it had on the Defense of Marriage Act.

Southern Poverty Law Center's Teaching Tolerance Project: SPLC has been at the center of a controversy recently in Hawaii, as public school teachers in the Aloha State have accepted money from the group to push their agenda in the classrooms. This paper examines the negative impact of SPLC's Teaching Tolerance project.

This is only a small cross-section of recent FRC actions on behalf of faith, family, and freedom. Go to to learn more. And thanks, as always, for standing with us. With God's help, we're not going anywhere but forward.
