Re:       Christmas and New Year greetings and year end request


Just a quick note to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year.

As I like to remind all of our friends each 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 – including the Christmas messageAmerica.  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.  As just one example, we just filed another brief in the Pledge of Allegiance case this past Friday . . . our third brief in this case!

You have also helped us do so much more.  You have helped us fight the radical homosexual agenda.  And yet, we know that next year’s battle – and the battle into the foreseeable future – will be even fiercer now that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has declared that homosexual marriage must be allowed in that state.

You have also helped us stand up to the ACLU and others as we defended the Ten Commandments yet again.

You have helped us fight Internet pornography.  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, for example, can a group of high school kids afford to pay us to defend their rights?

As I often remind you, when we win a case for our clients, we don’t get a percentage of what our clients win . . . because our clients don’t win money.  They win the right to exercise their religion.

That’s 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 2004 – we have an immediate need to eliminate the financial shortfall caused by our battles against the ACLU, the radical homosexuals, and the militant secularists.
