As each year ends, it’s important to reflect on all that the year brought – the good, the bad, and the ugly. While we faced many battles this year, and not everything went our way, we can be proud of all that we accomplished and use the lessons we learned in the coming year.
- FPIW announces a comprehensive Christian Agenda on Life, Family and Marriage, Christian Social Justice, Parental Rights, and Religious Freedom. We supported several bills and initiatives to prevent abortion, strengthen the family unit, and promote the free exercise of religious worship, among many others. We also opposed many harmful, anti-Christian bills. Here’s the story.
- The most anti-Christian President (Biden) in US history was sworn in as POTUS and starts leading new modern day Christian persecution by abandoning religious freedom through the Equality Act, actively promoting abortion and racism, appointing rabidly anti-Christian officials, and much more. Here’s the story.
- Establishment GOP/RNC capitulates to Gay Pride Movement and Log Cabin Republicans, then backtracks. Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel claimed that the GOP intends to support protections for LGBTQ Americans. The RNC also partnered with Log Cabin Republicans, a group of LGBT allies. McDaniel later reassured Republican voters that the RNC is not advocating for any policy or platform changes.

- We experienced the worst WA legislative session for Christians in over 30 years, further dividing the two parties and our country. Our legislators passed bills that enable the persecution Christians and people of any traditional faith. Democrats revealed their radical agenda through votes on critical race theory, religious freedom, parental rights, abortion, police reform, sexual orientation, and gender ideology. Here’s the story.
- FPIW ramps up with Christian Caucuses, WSRP Faith Engagement Committee, Regional Centers, and staff expansion to engage GOP officials in a Christian policy agenda and further our efforts to re-establish Christian principles in government. As liberalism has embraced radical paganism and secular conservativism continues to waffle, we are refocusing on fixed Truths and fighting for our freedoms like never before. Read more here.
- Vaccine Passports were implemented after a mass firing of unvaccinated people as religious freedom is suppressed in WA. Inslee mandated that state employees and healthcare workers be fully vaccinated or face termination. As a result, thousands of workers fled the state. Inslee even required churches to check vaccine passports, among other restrictions placed on houses of worship. Here’s the story.
- Parents revolt against racist CRT and transgender mandate, especially in Virginia’s Governor race. Parents became increasingly involved at school board meetings and fiercely spoke out against the indoctrination of their children. A grassroots movement of angry parents formed to oppose CRT and the transgender mandate, creating a force so strong that it scared Marxist lobbyists. Here’s the story.
- Most GOP Establishment and Christian Pastors and Bishops still ignore evil and sin and hesitate to engage publicly with the Great Commission. Many legislators and public leaders have avoided the harsh culture and religious wars, but the battles still rage on. Many have succumbed to the fallacy that they need not impose their values in the public sphere while progressive radicals continue to do just that. This is exactly why Republicans and Christian leaders have lost influence. Here’s the story.
- The Supreme Court chose favorable hearings on anti-Christian Blaine Amendments and Roe V. Wade abortion ruling. On Dec. 1st, the court heard Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which has the potential to overturn Roe v. Wade and return the power over abortion laws to the states. Their decision is expected to come in the spring. Here’s the story.
- The Christian population in the U.S. decreases by 2% in two years while LGBTQ millennials increase to 39%. Over the past few decades, Christianity has continued to decline, and the liberal media has celebrated the abandonment of religiosity and the societal shift toward radical individualism. Further, only nine years after our country legalized gay marriage, a movement has emerged to normalize pedophilia as we continue down the slippery slope of radical sexual ideology. Read more here.
Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10
