SPOTLIGHT: Sanity as Insurrection by Pastor Doug Wilson

Written by David E. Smith

In this episode of Illinois Family Spotlight podcast, we revisit a powerful lecture given the 2019 Illinois Family Institute Worldview Conference on the “trans” ideology. Sanity as Insurrection is the title of the final session of that conference, and it was delivered by Pastor Doug Wilson. He stressed the importance of asking sane questions, ones that strike at the heart of the matter, when we engage in debate with our adversaries because “deliberate and premeditated sanity is a challenge to the powers that be.”… Continue Reading

Running on Fumes! Hoping for Your Help!

Written by David E. Smith

Illinois Family Action is currently engaged in a Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) effort throughout the state. The importance of this election cannot be over-emphasized. Never before in the history of the United States have we seen this level of delusional thinking, rhetoric and militancy. The threats to the institutions of the sanctity of life, the centrality of family and the importance of the church are more profound than we can remember.

But we have one major problem.Continue Reading

Let’s Flip The General Assembly!

Written by Kathy Valente

She said they were SHOCKED to find out that the state lawmakers they previously supported voted AGAINST common-sense values.
