Right now in America, we are facing a national emergency on a variety of issues. We are facing a national emergency in regards to our national debt, illegal immigration, poverty, unemployment, the killing of unborn children, our national security, and yes, even our healthcare.
But probably the most frightening emergency we are facing is the war that our government is waging against our 1st Amendment right of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom to practice our religion whether that means not eating a particular food, or refusing to photograph a same-sex wedding.
Our special tomorrow will be Rev. Dean Nelson, Chairman of the Frederick Douglas Foundation, and founding member of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition! He will be talking to us about the Hobby Lobby case where this Christian company is being forced by our government to violate their Christian believes and provide contraceptive coverage for their employees under the Affordable Care Act.
You can watch this video of Sen. Ted Cruz speaking in front of the Supreme Court building about this case in the middle of a winter storm this past Tuesday.
So be sure to join us tomorrow at 12noon to hear from Rev. Dean Nelson. The conference call number is 712-432-0900, and the access code is 199176#.
Please be advised that the National Emergency Coalition (NEC) is not a formal organization, but a Coalition of individual leaders. It is convened by STAND (Staying True to America's National Destiny). The weekly conference calls held under the NEC banner are primarily for purposes of information and political strategizing on the advancement of certain principles and not the endorsement of or opposition to particular candidates. However, at times there are discussions which involve lobbying, recommendations for political and electoral activity and expressions of support for or opposition to particular elected officials based on their policies. Individual participants have full latitude to lobby on any policy or to endorse or oppose any candidate or elected official. However, nonprofit organizations are circumscribed by the Internal Revenue Code and related rules and regulations regarding activity of organizations tax exempt under IRC Sections 501(C)(3) and (C)(4). NEC is a coalition of individuals only. Listing organizational affiliations on NEC notices is strictly for purposes of identifying individuals and in no way implies - nor does NEC require or accept - the participation of any nonprofit organization in political activity or contributions in violation of any IRS rules. The general rule is that nonprofit organizations may not endorse or oppose candidates and may not engage in a "substantial" amount of lobbying or political activity. Nonprofit organizations should consult with an attorney or accountant for specifics to assure compliance.
