“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

I am for our children born and unborn. That means giving love and
nurture to them and providing environments where they can thrive and rise to their full potential. I believe we must call out the cultural bigotry that does not view unborn children as part of the human family deserving equal care and protection. I must decry the evil of abortion and governments that pay for it with your tax dollars and mine. 

I stand for good  prenatal and post-natal care, clean drinking water and nutritious food and quality education and medical care for every child. I believe that children with disabilities must be included as indispensable members of our communities.    

I am pro-woman.  We must encourage every woman to reach the full potential God had in mind for them when He created them -- but never at the cost of another's right to life. I want our daughters and  granddaughters to always believe in their own worth and potential to follow their dreams. I want them to believe in themselves.

I believe in life -- at every state  and stage throughout the life spectrum, from conception to natural death. I believe in lifting up every life as worthy of life. I believe we must never abandon the sick or disabled to the darkness of euthanasia. Civilized people do not help suicidal people kill themselves, regardless of their circumstances.

Civilized people always seek life affirming solutions to human crisis. Only barbarians kill. I believe we are better than embracing death to solve problems. We can rise to the rightful dignity of the Divine image we all bear.  I believe we will see a new generation rise to live fully under the Lordship of Jesus and reject the folly of their parents' and grandparents' generations.
