Abiding Truth Ministries has announced its top ten "Pro-Family Heroes" for the past year, recognizing a Massachusetts-based activist as its #1 hero for 2015.
Scott Lively, the traditional values leader who heads up Abiding Truth Ministries, explains why his organization decided to honor the heroes.
"The pro-family movement has taken a few hits this year," he begins. "We just need to be encouraging the pro-family leaders and organizations that are standing strong for biblical values to hang in there [and proclaim] We're not giving up the fight, even though we may be back to where the pro-life movement was in 1973. We're going to press on and not give up."
This is the third year Abiding Truth Ministries has published a list of pro-family heroes. Lively says it was difficult to pick this year's top ten out of the many pro-family warriors – and even more difficult to decide the number-one hero for 2015: Brian Camenker of MassResistance.
"Brian is a very stalwart pro-family leader," Lively shares. "He's living in the Boston area of Massachusetts. Massachusetts is the most homosexual-controlled state in the union; Boston is their headquarters – and he's really a lone voice of sanity in that whole area."
Rounding out the ministry's top ten heroes (in order) are Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, Janet Folger of Faith 2 Action, Arthur Goldberg of JONAH, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, David Kupelian of WND.com, J. Matt Barber of Barbwire.com, Diane Gramley of AFA Pennsylvania, Dr. Michael Brown of Line of Fire Radio Ministry, and Dr. Don Welch of the Center for Enriching Relationships.
