WASHINGTON, July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Faith Family Freedom Fund, a political action committee associated with Family Research Council Action, launched a radio ad campaign today on multiple stations in the district of U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH-8) and the state of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), countering an ad campaign by Sojourners opposing necessary cuts to government spending.
The ad script follows:
Commentator: "Right now Congress is considering increasing America's debt. But debt hurts everyone, especially the poor."
Pastor J.C. Church, Victory in Truth Ministries (for the Ohio ad); Pastor Gary French, Life Church (for the Kentucky ad): "There's a group of well-meaning but misguided ministers who believe that the government is responsible for meeting the needs of the poor, calling proposed budget cuts immoral. But Jesus didn't instruct the government of his day to take the rich young ruler's property and redistribute it to the poor. He asked the ruler to sell his possessions and help the poor. Charity is an individual choice, not a government mandate."
Bishop Harry Jackson, International Communion of Evangelical Churches: "Multiplied billions in government spending has not eradicated poverty. In fact, runaway government spending and increasing debt have actually crippled our economy and now churches have even less to spend to meet the needs of the poor, so that we might tangibly show them the love of Christ."
Commentator: "Please join millions of churchgoers in telling Congress to start living within its means, just like we have to. That is the moral choice."
The radio ad will run today, tomorrow and Monday, August 1. The radio ad can be heard online here:
