Austin Ruse, whose group C-FAM fights against reproductive choice and LGBT human rights at the United Nations, says in a year-end fundraising appeal that giving him money is a way to “smack the dumb devil right in the nose.” The fundraising pitch is a great example of Ruse in action, portraying his opponents as minions of Satan who are “coming for our children.” It’s really best experienced in his own words, if they are his words:
We are coming down the wire on 2015. This week in the Friday Fax we will release our list of the five best and five worst moments of the year just concluding.
The good outweighs the bad. But, the bad guys are coming. Abortion lovers. Radical homosexuals. Sexual revolutionaries. They are coming for our children. They want to win our children over for their nefarious causes that come from the very pits of hell.
C-Fam is the watcher on the wall. We have stood atop this wall since the summer of 1997, sometimes all alone. That is 18 years of stopping a right to abortion, 18 years of stopping a redefinition of the family, 18 years of protecting a right to religious belief and practice.
The new year will be just like each of the last 18, a pitched battle against powers and principalities who want to enslave mankind and send souls to hell. I do not say our worldly opponents are devils. They are merely but still dangerously slaves to their own sins and therefore confused. Our real opponents are the devil and his minions who prowl about the world seeking the ruin on souls.
The Devil is well funded. God’s children, not so much.
In the waning days of this year, we need to raise substantial funds in order to close our budget deficit and to begin the new year strong.
Can you say a prayer right now so we may remain on that wall bravely fighting His fight. As you pray, ask Our Lord how much you should send to us right now to continue this fight.
You can give a fully tax-deductible contribution by going to www.c-fam.org/donate.
Please give as much as you can.
PS Please know that my staff and I are utterly unafraid of the dumb Devil and his minions. We are utterly unafraid of the sexual revolutionaries, the abortion lovers, and the radical homosexuals. Utterly utterly unafraid to do the Lord’s sometimes dangerous work. Pray for us.
