FRANKLIN, Tenn. (July 26, 2017) – In light of President Donald Trump tweeting a statement today concerning military preparedness as it relates to transgenders in the armed forces, FACT President David Fowler made this comment:
President Trump has kept a campaign promise to make military preparedness the focus of our military, and I commend him for doing so.
The military is not suited for social experimentation that distracts from and diverts resources away from its singular focus—military preparedness against threats by foreign military powers—particularly at a time when those threats are increasing around the globe.
The Family Action Council of Tennessee (FACT), which Fowler heads, was formed in 2006 by a group of citizens concerned about the growing negative impact of public policies on marriage, families, life, and religious liberty. FACT’s mission is to equip Tennesseans and their elected officials to effectively promote and defend a culture that values God’s design for the family, for the sake of the common good.
