FACT Takes the Lead

As we celebrate our 10th anniversary in June (2006 – 2016), we are constantly reminded how, through God’s faithfulness and our strong and loyal supporters, FACT has helped Tennessee become the “first” and often “only” state to enact certain socially conservative and biblically based laws. Here are just a few examples:

  • We brought to the Legislature and helped pass the strongest abstinence law in the nation. Moreover, we became the first and only state to give parents a legal remedy against organizations that come into our schools and encourage and promote sexual activity among our children.
  • We are the first and only state in the nation that has a religious freedom protection law, a ban on local government imposing SOGI laws on private businesses, and no state sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI ) law. The only state with all three!
  • We are the first and only state (and organization) in the nation to have filed a lawsuit challenging how the Obergefell decision applies to state marriage license laws. And in support of that lawsuit, we became the first and only state that passed a resolution calling attention to the fact that Obergefell was an unconstitutional attempt by the Court to pass or amend a state marriage statute.

In this 10th anniversary section, we hope you enjoy learning more about all the ways that you have helped us better Tennessee and the lives of Tennesseans through educational efforts and legislation that protect life and religious liberty and promote and defend God’s design for human sexuality, marriage, and family. We can’t continue to fight for what’s right in our state without you!
