Dear Friends,The other day, I walked into an Asian stir-fry eatery and was met with a row of touchscreens lined up in front of the kitchen area where employees were preparing the food. The normal conversation one would usually hear between customers and the person behind the counter was strangely absent. Instead, I found myself and two or three millennial-types silently staring down at the touchscreens and ordering our food with a series of finger taps. We even swiped our own credit cards on a little console that also printed out our receipts. Similarly, instead of going to the bank with a check to deposit and having a friendly interaction with the bank teller, we can now deposit our checks ourselves with the cameras on our phones.All of this technology has certainly made our lives more convenient in certain ways, but it also has a weird way of making everyday life seem robotic. We aren’t being “old-fashioned” when we feel that something vital is missing from our lives when the opportunities for friendly chit-chat are systematically removed from commonplace societal activities.The desire for genuine human contact isn’t merely a “nicety” that some of us choose to do from time to time. This desire was placed in all human hearts by our Creator. Think of how Jesus interacted with those around him. He didn’t sit on pedestal and heal people from afar—rather, he did not hesitate in holding children in his lap, touching lepers, and even spitting on a blind man’s eyes to heal them. This is the kind of God we have, one whose deepest desire is to reach out and touch us. We in turn desire to give and receive genuine touch. Never underestimate the power that a warm handshake or a friendly pat on the back can have. A sincere embrace of someone who is struggling can have an enormous impact. Even something as seemingly insignificant as a smile and a friendly “hello” has the power to immediately lift our spirits.It’s particularly important to not miss an opportunity to be both verbally and physically affectionate with our spouses and children, which strengthens the bond of our family units. Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research Council FRC ArticlesNew Brochure: How to Respond to the LGBT Movement – Peter SpriggThe SPLC’s Incursion into EducationWith vote against Brownback, Democrats abandon religious freedom – Travis WeberPresident is keeping his promises – Tony PerkinsFact-Checking Jimmy Kimmel on Christian Bakers: Two Big Errors, But Props for Trying – Travis WeberGeneration Z – Seeking Answers to Good and Evil – Travis WeberAn Ode to the Lincoln Memorial – Brynne KrispinPain-Capable Senate Vote: The One Percenters’ Club – Jay Sappington4 Unforgettable Thoughts On Marriage – Dan HartWith Cecile Richards’ Resignation, It’s Time for Planned Parenthood to Come Clean – Jay Sappington Religious LibertyReligious Liberty in the Public SquareJudge Rules Bakeshop Owner Doesn’t Have to Bake Wedding Cake for Gay Couple – Grace Carr, The Daily SignalNorth Carolina Settles With Magistrate It Forced Out for Not Doing Gay Marriages – Ken McIntyre, The Daily SignalMichigan Pastor Facing Death Threats for Offering Workshops to Teens Struggling with Homosexuality – Charlene Aaron, CBN NewsGovernor Cuomo Signs Executive Order Banning State Agencies From Doing Business With Companies That Promote, Tolerate Discrimination – LongIsland.comCalifornia Moves To Force Public Universities To Administer Abortion Pills – Kristan Hawkins, The FederalistMaryland city to church: Stop worship services or leave – Alliance Defending FreedomOhio high school rallies around prayer after outside group tries to ban it at events – Caleb Parke and Michelle Chavez, Fox NewsInternational Religious Freedom16,000 Christians Dead in Less Than 3 Years: Report Reveals Extent of Violence in Nigeria – Stoyan Zaimov, The Christian PostImpressions of persecution – June Cheng, WORLDSudan government demolishes church just hours after service – J-P Mauro, AleteiaReligious Discrimination in Canada – Derek Ross, Public DiscourseUS Pastor Andrew Brunson Writes Heartbreaking Message to Wife From Turkish Prison – Stoyan Zaimov, The Christian PostOpen Doors Rebuilds Nearly 700 Christian Homes Destroyed by ISIS in Nineveh Plains – Samuel Smith, The Christian Post LifeAbortionBeyond Roe: A Global Roadmap for the Pro-Life Movement – Stefano Gennarini, Public DiscourseBrother of woman who died from abortion at Planned Parenthood: Abortion is not a safe procedure – Live ActionOnly Pro-Lifers Address Abortion’s Core Moral Question – Mene Ukueberuwa, National ReviewThe Emerging Pro-Life Majority – Rob Schwarzwalder, The Stream'Fetal heartbeat' abortion bill advances in Iowa Senate after contentious hearing – William Petroski, Des Moines RegisterMissouri House Passes Pro-Life Bill Requiring Parental Notification Before a Teen’s Abortion – Micaiah Bilger, LifeNewsAdoptionFive Reasons Adoption Shouldn’t be a Backup Plan – John Prather, The StreamPro-Life Advocates Celebrate: Lawmakers Pass Funding for Florida Pregnancy Support Network – Leon Aprile, Orlando Political ObserverBioethicsEuthanizing The Mentally Ill Just Lets Their Illness Win – A.D.P.
