2020 Legislative Session Begins, FPIW First-Round Legislative Agenda Announced

The 2020 legislative session officially kicked off in Olympia this week. Because this is an even-numbered year session, we’ll have a limited amount of time to play both offense and defense on the proposals that will affect you and your family every day here in the Evergreen State.

With bills continuing to drop on a daily basis and in rapid succession into the hopper, we wanted to give you an early look at some of the priority bills we’ll be advocating for and against during this year’s 60-day legislative session.

Comprehensive Sexual Education: There is an alternative

One reading of most modern Sex Education materials makes parents cry aloud, “What can I do?”

After reading materials, parents say, “This makes me uncomfortable.” Explaining why is difficult without spending hours and finding something more comfortable as a replacement is nearly impossible. When a parent expresses their concerns to school personnel, they are told one or more of the following comments.

  • We are required to teach this.
  • We tone the materials down.

Composting Humans

Substitute Senate Bill 5001 has already been passed out of committee and is ready to go to the floor for debate. It’s companion bill in the House, HB 1162, will be debated this afternoon. While this bill does not require composting of human remains, it brings up serious questions about the dignity of the body and the extreme positions of some in the legislature. These bills are garnering national attention, and Laurie Higgins from the Illinois Family Institute graciously granted FPIW permission to reprint her article here.

Our Votes are an Extension of Our Faith

Making the case for Christian engagement in the culture isn’t a difficult thing to do. Christ’s lordship is over all areas of life and that’s abundantly clear in his word. Our Creator is not to be compartmentalized.

Today is November 5th, meaning tomorrow is the last day to vote in the different races for the various legislative, executive, and judicial offices. When we do so, we are not stepping out of the realm of spiritual things and into the supposed realm of secular things.

Evil Works Brought to Light

“Everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.” -John 3:20

There are evils which are so indisputably evil that the perpetrator’s only strategy is to hide the truth in the hopes their actions won’t be brought to light. Such is the reason for the following picture tweeted out by Bucks County Courier-Journal writer JD Mullane in 2013.

The media’s absence at the trial of Kermit Gosnell is not difficult to explain.

The Murder School

We’ve written before about the fraudulent nature of the “pro-choice” label. If you weren’t convinced then, you should be after reading this. The nation’s premier abortionist training school, the University of California San Francisco, is coaching future abortionists to convince conflicted mothers into killing their babies.

The UCSF Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health is a “medical school” through which the abortionist training program, known as the Kenneth J Ryan Residency Training Program,

The Left’s Masterpiece Dilemma

You may have heard that the Supreme Court issued a ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop. The case involved Jack Phillip’s (a Colorado baker) decision not to create a custom cake for a same-sex “wedding.”  After a complaint was filed, the Colorado Human Rights Commission sanctioned him and sent his employees (mostly family) to government re-education classes so they could be taught just how wrong Jack was to do what he had done.  In the process,

Five Things to Know About the Baker Case

Jack Philips, a Denver baker who declined to create a custom cake for a same-sex wedding, got some good news today from the United State’s Supreme Court when they ruled that the state of Colorado violated the Constitution in the way they treated him.

The case arose out of a familiar set of facts. Six years ago, Jack Phillips was approached about making a cake for a same-sex “wedding” at a time when same-sex marriage didn’t even exist in Colorado.

Church Gets Sued Over LGBT Event. What’s It Mean for You?

You can file this story in the category of “things they said would never happen that everyone knew was going to happen.”

A church in Oregon is being sued after not allowing their facility to be used for an LGBT event.  Curiously, the lawsuit was not filed by the people who were denied the opportunity to use the church’s facility.

Instead, this lawsuit has been filed by the event management company that used to manage the church’s event center.
