Freedom Federation Pledges Full Mobilization on Behalf of 40 Million Americans to Overturn DADT Repeal and 

Washington, DC - Mathew Staver, on behalf the Freedom Federation, made the following statement in response to the Senate's vote to repeal Section 654, Title 10, U.S.C. (1993), which is usually mislabeled by the subsequent Executive policy known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT): "Our armed forces should take heart, because the American people will not turn its back on you. This vote happened because opportunistic Senators - only days before Christmas - put political interest groups above supporting our men and women in uniform."


Staver continued, "This action will be overturned in the next Congress because it breaks the bond of trust that must exist between the military and those who command in the Pentagon and Congress. Today's vote will prove as costly to its proponents as ObamaCare was to its advocates. We promise a full mobilization of faith-based and policy organizations, veterans, and military families in the states of every Senator who voted for repeal of DADT against the advice of our service chiefs and during a time of war. Those Senators - and the Pentagon leaders responsible for this breach of trust - should understand that they will be the object of concerted political action against them."


The Freedom Federation is a federation of multiracial, multiethnic, and multigenerational faith-based and policy leaders and organizations representing 40 million people. The Freedom Federation is not a separate organization. It is a federation of organizations with large and unique constituencies that share common core values. Ninety-four organizations were represented on a letter from the Freedom Federation which was hand-delivered this week to every member of Congress, warning Congress not to repeal DADT.


A partial listing of some of the organizations signing the letter includes, but is not limited to, the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Teen Mania Ministries, American Association of Christian Counselors, Let Freedom Ring, Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, American Family Association, Family Research Council; Liberty Counsel, Liberty Alliance Action, Vision America, The Oak Initiative, The Call to Action, Concerned Women for America, High Impact Leadership Coalition, Campaign for Working Families, Conservative Action Project, Traditional Values Coalition, Renewing American Leadership, Conservative HQ, Constitution Party, Bott Radio Network, Center for Military Readiness, Strang Communications, and many more.
