1. NC VALUES VOICE: NC Supreme Court Special Edition

Earlier this week we had another episode of “The NC Values Voice”, a weekly 30-minute interview by Executive Director, Tami Fitzgerald, with a special guest. The NC Values Voice aired on Facebook Live and www.ncvalues.org/voice on Wednesday night at 7:30pm. Our goal with these programs is to inform and motivate our statewide coalition members with current, relevant information.
 
This week’s episode of The Voice we featured a special edition focused on the NC Supreme Court. We interviewed three conservative candidates running for election or re-election to our state’s highest court: Justice Paul Newby, Judge Phil Berger Jr., and Tamara Barringer. It is with high honor that the North Carolina Values Coalition endorses these three conservatives for the NC Supreme Court. We hope you'll check out this week's Voice to hear from them and why we endorse them for the Court.

4. SENATOR BERGER: NC Appeals to U.S. Supreme Court to Block Mid-Election Rule Changes

"North Carolina Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) and House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) today appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to block the Democratic Party-controlled N.C. State Board of Elections’ attempt to change election laws after voting already commenced.

Sen. Berger said, 'The question now before the U.S. Supreme Court is whether an unelected state panel should be able to change election laws after voting has already started. Multiple judges in multiple jurisdictions have already said no, and this case was thrown into further chaos by the shocking behavior of one appeals judge who thwarted the Fourth Circuit’s favorable ruling before they could publish the opinion.'

The explosive dissent from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals revealed that legislative leaders won the case, but, 'finding that he had been outvoted, the dissenting judge immediately initiated an [alternate procedure] before the panel could even circulate its views to the entire court, let alone to the public.'”

WEEKLY PRAYER: NC STATE BAR & OFFICIALS

LORD, we come before you on behalf of the free worship and religious liberty of lawyers all across our state. Today, the NC State Bar is meeting to discuss changes to their policies that would force lawyers into positions where they are asked to ignore their deep-seated religious convictions. We pray their decision may go in a manner that ultimately honors you.

LORD, you also have instructed us to pray for our governing officials, and we come to you in the spirit of this petition. We pray for our national government and its executive, legislative, and judicial servants. May they indeed be servants unto the people, and govern in a manner that protects liberty and virtue. In the same spirit, we pray for public servants across our state and local governments. May they all heed your mandate in Romans 13:4 to be in positions of authority as "God's servant" and for the "good" of the public. They govern in what we confess are difficult times. Between the COVID-19 pandemic, the civic unrest, the hostile political climate, and the opposition of international opponents such as China, they are much in need of your incalculable wisdom. May they plead with you to give it to them, and may your grace respond in kind.

Protect we, the People, from this virus, and help quicken our social, physical, emotional, and economic recovery.


Amen
