BLOGWhy I Work at ADF—It’s the Mission!

The Sexual Revolution, like all revolutions, has installed a new commander—it is the new sexual regime. Pro-abortion advocates and opponents of religious freedom unite at the sexual regime to crush the innocent and silence the dissenters.

But there are some who resist this regime. They will not compromise their faith. And at Alliance Defending Freedom, we defend a number of them as they fight for their right to freely live out their faith.

Like a young Luke Skywalker leaving Tatooine for the first time, I encourage you to join the Alliance. Will some call you names for stating your conviction that marriage is the union of a man and woman? Probably. Can we occasionally lose a case? Sure. But the sexual regime doesn’t have a Death Star. So as Jesus tells us throughout the Gospel, “Be not afraid.”

Working at ADF is countercultural, which makes it a fresh, exciting place to work. Our daily task is to uphold religious freedom—here in the United States and around the world. It personally invigorates me to know I am making a difference to protect the most fundamental freedom in our country when we stand with:

  • Pastor Esteban Carrasco, who fought for the right of churches in Massachusetts to be able to serve their communities without being forced to abandon their beliefs.
  • Blaine Adamson, who is fighting for his right to decline to promote messages that conflict with his religious beliefs.
  • Carl and Angel Larsen, who want to make films celebrating marriage between one man and one woman without being forced to also make films celebrating same-sex marriages.

And then of course, there is our work to defend the sanctity of life. ADF remains on the frontlines of the battle to defund Planned Parenthood, defend the freedom of healthcare professionals from being forced to participate in abortion, and protect pro-life pregnancy centers from being forced to promote abortion.

And there are millions out there just like us—including many fellow young people—who aren’t falling into step with the new sexual regime. There are eternal truths about marriage, the unborn, and our givenness as male and female to which we must bear witness. These convictions are as true in 2017 as they will be in 2117. It may take time for the law to catch up, but no culture, statute, or case law can kick forever against the goads. We are called for such a time as this.

So join the Alliance. Work at ADF, and make a difference.
