ABOUT THE MINUTEMAN INSTITUTE
times it seems that the radical left has cornered the market on
influential thinking in America. Just turn on your television and
see who's being interviewed. Check the newspaper and see
who's testifying before Congress. With the increase in popularity
of talk radio, conservatives and, to a lesser extent Christians, have
discovered their voices. But it's not enough to preach to the
That is why we started the Minuteman Institute as an important part of the
NLF. Law and public policy must go hand-in-hand. The truth about American
history must be told. Congress must hear testimony from people who are unapologetic
about being Christians. Its not enough to have conservative think tanks, radio
shows, newspapers and magazines. We must have Christian think tanks, radio shows,
newspapers and magazines.
The NLF will keep fighting for religious freedom in America. We will not
give in to the radical homosexual agenda. Neither will we allow the radical leftists
who have cornered the market on thinking in America to go unchallenged. We will
contend for the minds of our young people in high schools, colleges, and graduate schools
where the leftists and atheists are still alive and well today.
The Minuteman Institute is a part of winning that battle. It
will produce books, articles, interviews, and testimony on the following
critical areas of study:
Early American Studies
-- Some people, even some Christians, say that America never was a Christian nation.
Or that if she was, it doesnt matter any more. Well prove
otherwise. We will show that if we dont know what America was, we cant
restore her to what God intended her to be. The NLF believes that God intended
America to be a sending nation, that is, a nation that sends missionaries to
the ends of the earth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If that is true
Americas public policy should reflect that fact!
Classical Liberal Studies
-- Most people dont even know that the terms liberal and
conservative have flip-flopped. It is now the conservatives who are the
heirs to the classical liberal thinking that influenced our Founding Fathers. We
will rediscover and make available this thinking, as well as the writings of the Founders
themselves. Men like Washington, Jefferson, Adams, and Henry.
-- We will inform Congress, the public, and others about the Constitutional
thinking that the National Legal Foundation has long embraced. We will show how the
Constitution has been perverted and stood on its head!
Religion and Society
Studies -- We are tired of Christians being treated like second class
citizens and a danger to society. The Minuteman Institute will document the blessing
that Christianity is to American society.
Pro-Life Studies -- We will stand up for the unborn, the elderly, and the infirm--all of whom
are in danger in America today. The Minuteman Institute will be ever at the ready to
defend the defenseless.
-- Family is the bulwark of society. That is why it is under attack from the radical
feminists and the militant homosexuals. While the legal team of the National Legal
Foundation defends that family in court, the Minuteman Institute will defend it
from the onslaught of the social engineers.
-- Why should the ACLU and the American Bar Association pass
judgment on Americas judges? The Minuteman Institute will comment and testify
concerning judicial nominations.
