A Call to Action

Dear WRC Naples Federated Sisters, Members and Friends,

Last month we gathered together outraged at the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago. This month we are reacting to the speech given a week ago by our sitting president referring to MAGA Republicans as the greatest threat to our country.

Biden said "MAGA Republicans do not respect the constitution." But Biden's policies threaten our 1st and 2nd amendment rights. Biden also said "MAGA Republicans do not believe in the rule of law." Who defunded the police, refused to prosecute criminals and opened our southern border?

Biden continued his rant by calling MAGA Republicans semi-fascists who promote authoritarian leaders. The deep state has colluded with big tech, imposed mask and vaccine mandates and the DOJ has weaponized our intelligence agencies.

Biden went on to say MAGA Republicans fanned the flames of political violence and are a threat to our personal rights. They kept silent through the 500 riots that killed over 30 people. They allow Supreme Court Justices to be intimidated in their own homes.

He further claimed that MAGA Republicans are destroying American democracy. Our founders created a constitutional republic as they knew direct democracies are vulnerable to mob rule, which is what the progressives are relying on to retain power.

Biden attacked 74 million every day Americans in his speech. He has to talk about the perceived enemy because he can't talk about his ideas. His policies are destroying America in real time. Joe Biden hates the American citizens who simply want to make America great because every single one of his policies has made America weak and vulnerable.

Biden displayed how small-minded he truly is by attacking and vilifying tens of millions of people. The most alarming takeaway from his address is that Joe Biden can reference the importance of respecting our Constitution, upholding the rule of law, standing against authoritarianism, supporting democratic elections and against political violence, yet he repeatedly violates every single one of those principles. Joe Biden knows how destructive he is being to our country yet he continues to do it anyway.

Biden referenced the "soul of our nation" several times in his speech but it is hard for a nation to have a soul when its leader is a soulless corrupt politicIan who continues to enact policies that make his country and his fellow citizens weaker and more vulnerable for his own political and personal gain.

What can we do about it? As Governor DeSantis says: Put on the full armor of God and fight. We need to volunteer, send money, vote and make sure all of our conservative friends vote. We need to make the red wave happen. We need to ALL take up the DeSantis fight for freedom.

FAITH ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE NEWS

FAITH ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE

Update 09/02/2022:
A few words from Marilyn Romeo, member of the Faith Engagement Committee . . .

This present day crisis offers us the opportunity to "mend our every flaw" and to trust in the promise of Psalm 84: "Turn your eyes, O Lord our SHIELD and look on the face of your anointed one ..."

In its history, our "Beloved Country" has been blessed with heroes who have courageously put on the Shield of Faith and sacrificed their lives for liberty and security for the common good.

In the ongoing battle between good and evil it encourages us to reflect on the wisdom of patriots like Edmund Burke who stated that "the only way for evil to exist is for enough good men to do nothing." Only 1/3 of the population were willing to fight to preserve liberty during the American Revolution. These "good men" were "anointed ones" who wore the Shield of Faith.

Scripture and history are filled with stories of heroes who put on that Shield of Faith, trusted in God and exercised prudence to discern the best course of action.

We Florida citizens have been blessed with the courageous leadership of our Governor Ron DeSantis. He has inspired us to put on the full Armor of God to keep the state of Florida free. Therefore, we stand firm with the Belt of Truth buckled around our waists, and in addition, put on the Shield of Faith to combat the forces of evil that surround us.

I trust that we men and women of faith will answer that call and lift our hearts and minds in prayer for the preservation of liberty in the state of Florida as we set an example for others to follow.

Marilyn Romeo

National recognition for Mason Classical Academy

Congratulations to Mason Classical Academy, founded and lead by Collier County School Board Candidate Kelly Lichter and lauded by candidates Rutherford and Moshier. This academy has been NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED by the US News & World Reports and was awarded 98.03 out of 100, placing it in the top 2% of schools nationwide. They clearly announce it is the #1 public high school in Naples and the #1 public high school in Collier County.

Furthermore, they report: "The total minority enrollment is 44% with 24% of the students economically disadvantaged. Students are only selected by lottery in the county. This outstanding record is achieved at the same time as the existing public school system which has over 40% of students failing to maintain grade level standards in reading or math!
