|WE WON BIG! NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP!|
We made HISTORY! On Tuesday, December 4th, the Board of Miami-Dade County Commissioners voted nearly unanimously (8-3), to restore the opening prayer before all County Commission and Committee meetings. For nearly nine years, the Board of Miami-Dade County Commissioners began all their meetings with a MOMENT OF SILENCE, well no more, PRAYER IS BACK!
Miami-Dade County now becomes the largest county in Florida to remove, then RESTORE, prayer before their County Commission and Committee meetings!
There's much more to do - the ACLU has threatened to sue the County in order to STOP OUR RIGHT TO PRAYER!
When the history books are written, 2012 will be remembered as the turning point when PRAYER WAS RESTORED TO OUR NATION.
For nearly two years now, CFC has been laying the groundwork for our greatest grassroots victory yet. CFC trained forty (40) lobbyists to build support among the County Commissioners for this ordinance. We invested our time, talents and treasures, to secure this hard fought victory.
Today, we celebrate, but tomorrow morning we get up and get back to work so that this victory that we have achieved together, is not in vain. Too many communities in the U.S. are still denied the right to pray.
We have a long way to go, my friends, but today, we took a giant leap towards restoring prayer in our nation.
Thank you for your support. We're not going to slow down – we're doing to double down.
We finally have momentum on our side and we will not rest until WE DEFEAT THE ACLU!
