The Pledge is a key tool of the FFFC, for helping unify leadership when there are commonly shared principles concerning faith, ethical content, and moral principles.
WHEREAS, the founding fathers of our country acknowledged that the Divine Hand of Providence had provided us the opportunity to form a new nation; and
WHEREAS, the founding fathers stated it is universally true that all men are created equal, and that our Creator had endowed each human being with the right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness; and
WHEREAS, the founding fathers believed that morality and self-restraint are necessary partners to liberty; and
WHEREAS, these ideas continue to unite Americans throughout the ages and across international borders; and
WHEREAS, the founding fathers framed this proposition in the notion that Americans have the right to self-governance through their elected representatives; and
WHEREAS, the maintenance of these ideas by our contemporary representatives is necessary to our tranquil existence, now and in the future.
NOW, THEREFORE, we ask each elected official and candidate in the state of Florida to join with us in the following pledge:
I do hereby pledge to steadfastly adhere to the highest code of ethical conduct, and exercise to the utmost my consented authority to defend Life and Liberty, to promote morality and the traditional family unit in which morality is best taught, to preserve religious liberty, and to uphold the principles of limited government, low taxation, and fiscal responsibility.
