What Just Happened?
Justice Amy Coney Barrett Sends Thank You to Wisconsin Well-wishers
In October of 2020, Judge Amy Coney Barrett was on the proverbial “hot seat” in the US Senate Judiciary Committee for four days during the hearing to confirm her as an associate justice on the US Supreme Court. She had been the target of vitriol and even ridiculous statements and questions from liberals on the committee. Through it all, this wife and mother of seven, who is by everyone’s account a brilliant legal mind and excellent jurist, conducted herself with confidence without arrogance, dignity without defiance, and grace without groveling. We believed Judge Barrett would welcome receiving some encouragement from thousands of Wisconsin citizens who appreciate who she is and what she believes about the rule of law and the role of the courts. And so did you!
A campaign was launched by our organization to send a letter to Justice Barrett to let her know Wisconsin was thinking of and praying for her. Nearly a thousand of you signed on to the letter and added your own personal notes. It was truly heartwarming to witness the outpouring of love and kindness towards Justice Barrett!
On October 21, 2020, we made a trip to our local post office to send off pages and pages containing all of these beautiful expressions of gratitude, commitments to prayer and more. Your words touched the heart of Justice Barrett who responded just this week with a personal letter!
WFA president Julaine Appling said, “Justice Barrett continues to show us she is a classy and gracious person. I must admit; getting a letter from a sitting US Supreme Court justice is a first for me. We are glad we took time to do this thank you to Justice Barrett and are certainly grateful for her kind acknowledgement. We wanted to be sure we shared her letter so those who signed could see Justice Barrett received the card and signatures and appreciated them. Thank you to all of you who participated!”

Once again, thank you to all who signed the digital card for Justice Barrett! “Therefore, comfort one another and edify one another, just as you also are doing.” 1 Thess. 5:11 (NKJV)
All Eyes (and Ears) On Wisconsin This Friday
Election Fraud Hearing Tomorrow
Tomorrow, December 11, 2020, the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections and the Senate Committee on Elections, Ethics and Rural Issues will hold a joint public hearing regarding allegations of election fraud in Wisconsin. Testimony will be heard only from people who have been invited to speak. Seating is very limited because of COVID restrictions. The hearing begins at 10 a.m. and is scheduled to end at 6 p.m. An overflow room and the rotunda in the capitol will be available once the main hearing room is full. The hearing room is 412 East in the capitol. You don’t have to go to Madison to listen to the hearing, however. Wisconsin Eye will carry the hearing LIVE. You can access it by clicking HERE.
Last week Family Policy Alliance and Focus on the Family released a new resource for parents with kids in public school. Back to School—for Parents deals with such issues as overly sexualized course content, radical viewpoints presented as fact, and the shutdown of faith-based perspectives. The resource helps parents navigate the bureaucracy and offers advice on how to handle the issues with children at home. A free downloadable copy is available online HERE.
Wisconsin Family Action urges sharing this resource with pastors and youth leaders.
Elections Have Very Real Consequences
Last month, the US Supreme Court handed down a religious freedom decision in a case arising out of New York. On a 5-4 vote, the justices determined that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo violated the religious liberty, freedom of assembly and freedom of speech of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn as well as a major Jewish congregation in New York City. At issue were COVID restrictions put in place by the governor and his self-determined “essential” and “non-essential” services. Religious congregations were labeled non-essential.
The justices voting in favor of respecting the constitutionally protected religious freedom of these religious organizations were Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett, three of which are Trump appointees. Once again Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberal justices. What a powerful reminder that elections have such very real consequences.
As parents, we want to have meaningful conversations regarding how our faith informs and guides us through our daily lives. But where do we start? How do we launch into those conversations without feeling awkward or unprepared?
Here are a couple of discussion starter resources geared specifically toward Christmas and the New Year’s holidays that you can use in your homes with your families in order to open the door to discussions about faith, the Gospel, and Jesus. Each set of resources contain a wide variety of activities with step-by-step guides. Use one or all of them as works best for your family. (Note: We are not giving a wholesale endorsement of every idea or suggestion; as always, we urge parents to be discerning and always sensitive to what is in accord with Scripture.)
