NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Family Research Council President Tony Perkins this morning addressed the National Religious Broadcaster’s 75th annual convention on the importance of evangelicals continuing to engage our culture to promote faith, family, freedom in the public square.

Perkins said in his remarks:

“If conservatives and in particular evangelical voters do not turn of the first orders of business (if Democrats win the House) will be the impeachment of President Trump.  They most likely will not succeed in removing him from office, but they will most likely succeed in stopping what this administration is doing.

“What are they doing?  The Trump administration is not just enacting conservative policies in line with the Constitution. President Trump is the first Republican president to not just stop the liberal policies of his predecessor.  He is dismantling, slowly, but dismantling nonetheless parts of the framework of big, liberal government which has been expanded with the election of each Democratic administration since FDR.  

“That is why the Left is unhinged.  They won't be able to jump back in the driver's seat of big government and restart their programs. They will have to rebuild, and that will take time, especially if they don't have the courts to help them in their activism.  This is why every judicial confirmation is a fight.

“We have to act upon the opportunity that we have to fortify our freedoms, and to ensure government does not again try to quarantine our Christian faith within the walls of our churches.  A lot has been done, but there is still plenty to do. 

“The Johnson Amendment has to be totally eliminated. The forced partnership between taxpayers and Planned Parenthood must be ended. Patient-centered healthcare must be restored and God must be welcomed back into our public life,” Perkins concluded.
