Florida Faith and Freedom Coalition and Florida Right to Life held its 2nd annual Legislative Prayer Breakfast Thursday in Tallahassee.

“It was encouraging to see so many people, elected officials, and candidates who daily advocate for the truths upon which our nation was founded,” Jim Kallinger, Chairman of the Florida Faith & Freedom Coalition, said in a statement. “Chief among them is mankind’s right to life which is why it is especially appropriate that we held our meeting in conjunction with Florida Right to Life today.”.

The statement also said:

Over 200 people gathered to hear speakers like Florida Right to Life President Carrie Eisnaugle, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, Speaker of the House Will Weatherford, State Representative Dennis Baxley, State Senator Anitere Flores, and the National Faith and Freedom Coalition Chairman Ralph Reed. US Senator Marco Rubio was present via video, and Congressman Steve Southerland sent a representative from his office.

Every speaker commented on the need for people of faith to be engaged in the civic arena. The Florida Faith and Freedom Coalition’s mission is to register voters and mobilize them for the 2014 and 2016 election cycles.

“Florida Faith and Freedom Coalition Board Member William Harrison said, “In America, we deserve the leaders that we get because we have the opportunity to vote. People of faith have got to register to vote and get to the polls. When we do, we can change the direction of America and put us back on solid footing.”
