NATIONAL LEGAL FOUNDATION MEMO
To: All National Legal Foundation Supporters
Just a quick note to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year.
Christmas is a special time here at the National Legal Foundation because the NLF is not just a public interest law firm. We are also a Christian ministry. We do what we do because we believe God has called us to this task.
If there were no Christmas, there would be no NLF. Since 1985, one of the most important things we have done is make sure there is freedom to preach the Gospel in America. We also are here to make sure that Christians have all the religious freedom that our Founders intended.
This year you have helped us do so much to defend religious freedom. You have also helped us do so much more. You have helped us fight the radical homosexual agenda. In fact, I have interrupted my work on our brief to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court that is due tomorrow on the same sex marriage case to send you this quick holiday greeting.
You have also helped us stand up to the ACLU and atheists like Michael Newdow. You have helped us defend the Ten Commandments.
You have helped us fight Internet pornography. You have helped us fight to keep our public libraries safe for our children.
The list goes on and on.
These are just a few examples of why your financial support is so critical. As you know, our services are free to our clients. After all, how can a group of high school kids as another example afford to pay us to defend their rights?
When we win a case for our clients, we dont get a percentage of what our clients win . . . because our clients dont win money. They win the right to exercise their religion.
Thats why you are so important to us. YOU ARE THE LIFE BLOOD OF THE NLF. Without your prayers and donations, we could not do what God has called us to do.
As the year ends and in the first few months of 2003 we have an immediate need to eliminate the financial shortfall caused by our battles against the ACLU, the radical homosexuals, and the militant secularists.
I know that many ministries make such appeals at the end of the year . . . but let me be specific. We have come up $83,517.36 short. Thanks to you and our other faithful partners, that is actually an improvement over last years year-end situation! BUT . . . this yearwith EVERYONES help, we can wipe it all out! Please pray about a special end of 2002/beginning of 2003 gift. Thank you so very much.
May God bless you during the holiday season and all through the coming year!
