Alliance Defense Fund Links

From Alliance Defense Fund 2008 Mailed Flyer
Alan Sears is a former federal prosecutor in the US Department of Justice during the Reagan administration. Sears now serves as president and general counsel of the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), the nations largest religious liberty legal alliance…launched in 1994 by Dr. James Dobson…

Donor contributions will help support the fourfold mission of the Alliance Defense Fund:
1. Provide funds to help allied attorneys litigate and defeat the ACLU and its allies…

2. Litigate cases that defend religious freedom and traditional values.

3. Train attorneys in the best tactics and strategies to defeat the ACLU and its allies. Through its one-of-a-kind National Litigation Academy, ADF is working toward a goal of training 5,000 allied attorneys to fight—and win—for Christian values in America’s courtrooms. More than 1,100 have already graduated from this exclusive training academy.

4. Strategize and coordinate the efforts of many allied legal groups and lawyers that share the same values to oppose the ACLU and
its allies.”

An Urgent Message from ADF President Alan Sears

Dear Friend,
For more than 80 years, the ACLU has fought for legal rulings that censor America’s Christian heritage and overturn our traditional values…If we’re ever going to restore our Founding Fathers’ vision for America, we need your prayers and support.

Gifts of $35, $50, and $100 are urgently needed. With your gift of $35 or more… a copy of The ACLU Vs. America, a book I co-authored with ADF vice president Craig Osten. My hope is that you will find this an indispensable resource for understanding and combating this powerful foe in the battle to restore America’s religious freedom and traditional values.

Alan E. Sears, President, CEO and General Council

Immediate Contribution Reply to Stop the ACLU Now!
Yes, Alan! I want to join the Alliance Defense Fund in fighting the ACLU and its radical allies’ attacks on America’s Christian heritage and values. To help ADF continue its mission of defending religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and marriage and the family, I enclose my tax-deductible contribution of $________________.

    By Peter Slevin, Washington Post Staff Writer, September 8, 2008
    Chicago—Declaring that clergy have a constitutional right to endorse political candidates from their pulpits, the socially conservative Alliance Defense Fund is recruiting several dozen pastors to do just that on Sept. 28, in defiance of Internal Revenue Service rules.

    The effort by the Arizona-based legal consortium is designed to trigger an IRS investigation that ADF lawyers would then challenge in federal court…
