The New York Faith & Freedom Coalition strongly condemns the passage–and the celebration of the passage–of the legalization of infanticide in the state of New York State under the guise of the Women’s Reproductive Health Act. This legislation has nothing to do with reproduction or health, but rather legalizes every horrendous crime Kermit Gosnell was convicted of in his abortion business where babies and mothers were selfishly murdered. This is not progress, but rather regression reminiscent of those cultures before the Jewish law introduced civility into the human experience. Those who see this as “progress” have a very short-sighted or ignorant view of world history.
Unfortunately, we see this as only the first of a barrage of coming laws set at replacing our Judeo-Christian standard of morality with a new morality derived from the religion of Secular Humanism—where man is god and he will save himself and set his own standards.
For this reason the New York Faith and Freedom Coalition will be working diligently to educate New Yorkers about these and other issues that threaten our faith, our families and our freedom while also working to advance a Human Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to safeguard the very first of our God-given rights on behalf of the little ones who cannot speak for themselves. We must work to defend “the least of these,” or God will surely hold us accountable.
The New York Faith & Freedom Coalition stands in strong opposition to the passage of The Counselor Coercion Bill (S.121 – Hoylman/A.4958 – Glick) which would make it unlawful for mental health professionals to practice change therapy with minor clients. Professionals who engage in change therapy with minors under 18 years of age could have their licenses suspended or revoked, and be fined up to $10,000.00 per charge.
This is nothing less than an attempt at social engineering to advance the agenda of the LGBT activists who have successfully commandeered the seats of government in Albany.
This legislation is a clear threat to our liberties when it comes to religion, speech and conscience. The state must not undermine the authority of parents or the self determination of minors who freely choose to live a lifestyle that is consistent with values derived from a Judeo-Christian tradition.
This is about much more than therapy. It’s about subjugating religion to the idol of political correctness. People of faith of every mainstream expression must take a stand to resist this assault by the most ungodly administration in the history of our state for the preservation of liberty for the benefit of our posterity.
In 2017 we took the entire year to study America’s Godly Heritage. In 2018 we took the year to study the U.S. Constitution from a Biblical perspective. This year we will begin a year-long study entitled
“America’s Challenging Issues from a Biblical Perspective.”
Each month, ( except July and August), we will take a separate issue and discuss what our position should be concerning each using Biblical principles as our guide. This is the schedule we plan on following:
- January – The Sanctity of Life
- February – The Sanctity of Marriage and Family.
- March – Immigration, Border Security and National Defense
- April – Tax Reform and the Economy
- May – Global Politics & International Relations
- June – Religious Liberty
- September – Education in America
- October – Constitutionalism
- November – Entitlements and Healthcare
- December – The Economy and Jobs
Our goal is to provide a general understanding of each issue to equip the Christian activist with sufficient knowledge to engage in conversation and influence his/her sphere of influence toward a more Biblical worldview regarding these important issues facing our generation.
Each meeting will begin with a time of praise and worship, a study of God’s word concerning the subject at hand, discussion and prayer for our nation and our leaders. Meetings are held on the third Friday of each month unless otherwise noted. Sign up to receive our alerts and notices here.
Our meetings are open to all concerned citizens, however, we do encourage membership in the New York Faith & Freedom Coalition to help advance the principles that have made us the Empire State.

To let us know we can expect to see you at our first meeting of the year on Jan. 18th click here.
I just listened to Governor Cuomo’s inauguration speech after which it becomes quite clear that New Yorkers are left with a choice in 2019–fight or flight!
New Yorkers of reasonable intelligence cannot sit by while our governor, advances a godless progressive agenda that calls evil good and good evil.
Since we are not leaving New York, our only choice is to fight to see godly values restored for the sake of coming generations and God’s glory. (Come to think of it, I didn’t hear the mention of God once in Cuomo’s speech though he talked of angels and spirits–but no God…hmmm!).
We will need your help in 2019. We too have an agenda for the New Year, but we will need your help to carry it through to success. Here is what we’re planning.
- Hold a monthly prayer and educational meeting:
- to pray for our state, our nation and its leaders at every government level
- to learn about the current issues impacting our faith and our families.
- To understand the Biblical approach to current issues
- To develop strategies to influence public policy to align with our Judeo-Christian heritage.
- We will speak out in the public square using whatever forms of media possible to advance Biblical principles.
- We will train Christians and mobilize the Church to occupy the seats of influence in order to bring our state and our nation back to God.
- We will work with other pro-God and pro-family groups to advance among others, three non-negotiable issues: Life, Marriage and Religious Liberty.
We encourage you to listen to the governor’s speech on Youtube to get a sense of the direction these godless leaders intend on taking New York, then join the New York Faith and Freedom Coalition to stand against this diabolical plan to turn the Empire State into a “Socialist-Sodomite” State.

Now that the mid-term elections are over it’s time to re-evaluate our activities and strategies concerning the future of this nation.
The Democrats won the House of Representatives putting them in a position to either work toward a better America, or undermine the President’s pro-growth, pro-America agenda. Time will tell which path they will take. After the results were in Nancy Pelosi began reciting the motto “E Pluribus Unum,” yet she continually talks about being the champion of women, minorities, the LGBT community, and so on. It’s important to emphasize the fact that the Greek “E Pluribus Unum” is expressed in the English motto, “One Nation Under God.” That must be the guiding principle to work toward, and we must emphasize the words “Under God.” With that in mind let me propose the way forward.
First we must educate the public concerning those founding principles that must be continually re-affirmed in order to maintain the exceptional level of peace and prosperity we have known over the years. To this end the New York Faith & Freedom Coalition will continue to conduct educational opportunities on an ongoing basis, and remain available to teach and speak wherever and whenever possible.
Secondly, we must equip and encourage citizens to be part of the leadership at every level of government. The clergy and community leaders must teach the responsibility of duty to our community, as part of our duty to God.
The God issue must become part of our national conversation. What does it mean to be one nation under God? That must be the North Star to which we must all be directed to. That is the only real unity that can be realized to advance peace and prosperity.
In New York State, the Democrats now have total control over state government, having won the majority in the State Senate, the only bulwark we had against bad, unbiblical legislation. We can expect expansion of abortion and gay rights, and socialistic policies while trying to silence the Christian voice any way they can.
People of faith must be totally informed and engaged while praying like it all depends on God, but also working like it all depends on us. No excuses. Our complacency is the reason evil is advancing, but I read the back of the book. We win. I just want to take as many as I can with me to the finish line.
