[Family Policy Network] – Parents should beware of a Halloween trick-or-treat fundraising scheme that benefits a pro-abortion division of the United Nations (UN).

Obama Signs Bill Adding ‘Sexual Orientation’ to Federal ‘Hate Crimes’ Law

U.S. Capitol[FPN] – President Obama has delivered on a campaign promise to homosexuals by signing legislation that will extend special ‘hate crimes’ protections to some people on the basis of their private sexual misconduct. Family Policy Network (FPN) opposed adding ‘sexual orientation’ to ‘hate crimes’ categories, primarily because it is a move designed to elevate immoral lifestyles to civil rights status.

FPN Policy Paper on State Marriage Amendments

In well-intentioned efforts to curb the erosion of the sanctity of marriage by proposing or passing “marriage amendments” to individual state constitutions, many people believe that merely defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman will do the job of protecting the institution of the family.

This policy paper explains Family Policy Network’s (FPN) position on state marriage amendments and explains why the differences in language are so important. Continue Reading →
