The Free to be Faithful® newsletter highlights important and relevant details on religious liberty issues that impact the rights of Christians to live faithfully.

In this issue, read about:

  • How courts are increasingly expanding the interpretation of federal law to force private schools — even those that do not accept federal funding — to comply with Title IX anti-discrimination regulations.
  • The Case for Life, a recently updated and expanded book that equips readers to become “a street-level pro-life apologist” who can stand up to arguments and attacks from the pro-abortion crowd.
  • The alarming increase in hostility against churches in the United States. According to a report published by the Family Research Council, 436 incidents against churches occurred in 2023 — more than double the amount found in 2022.
