Family Matters

December 23, 2013

The family, built on a strong foundation of the union of one man and one woman, is the foundation of civil society. Since 1989, Liberty Counsel has sought to advance family values. In 2013, as in past years, we continued to diligently promote and protect natural marriage and families.
During this year, we filed federal lawsuits challenging laws in California and New Jersey that prevent minors from receiving Christian counseling to overcome unwanted same-sex attractions or behavior.

Liberty Counsel is also strategic in the use of our resources. For the past two years, our nondonor funding (which includes court-awarded attorney’s fees received from our opposition) has covered 100% of our fundraising and administrative costs, leaving every penny we receive from generous donors like you to fund our vital  litigation and education projects!
There is never a better time to give, because a generous donor has given $500,000 of “matching money” that will double your gift! Turn $10,000 into $20,000; $5,000 into $10,000; $250 into $500; or $5 into $10 – any amount will help advance family values.
