Professor declares June ‘Fidelity Month’ in support of God and family
Robert George

‘I have declared June to be ‘Fidelity Month’—a month dedicated to the importance of fidelity to God, spouses and families, our country, and our communities’

June is officially “Fidelity Month,” according to Princeton University Professor Robert George.

The outspoken Catholic and social conservative announced that June would be “Fidelity Month,” in opposition to Pride Month.

“As my Facebook friends know, by the authority vested in me by absolutely no one, I have declared June to be ‘Fidelity Month’—a month dedicated to the importance of fidelity to God, spouses and families, our country, and our communities,” Professor George (pictured) wrote on his Facebook in early May.

He encouraged people to “make and fly a Fidelity Month flag,” change their Facebook profile or banner to the logo and organize events in support of the month.

There is also a webinar slated for this Thursday for anyone who wants to learn more about the endeavor. Speakers include pro-life leader Lila Rose, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Professor Andrew Walker and James Wilson, a poet and professor at the University of St. Thomas in Houston.

George created the month with his peers after a Wall Street Journal poll showed what many conservatives would expect – there is a decline in support for religion, family and community.

“You may have read about the rather disturbing recent WSJ poll indicating a precipitous decline in our fellow Americans’ belief in the importance of such values as patriotism, religion, family, and community—the values that used to unite Americans despite our many differences,” George wrote. “There are a million things we can and should do to restore the faith of our people, and begin to heal the dreadful division in our county, but I would like you to join in one small one.”

The new month is a positive development coming from a professor and supported by other academics. Universities and student activists frequently push gross drag shows and the LGBT agenda, even at Protestant and Catholic schools.

Instead of posting rainbow flags and boasting about their support for the LGBT agenda, schools should embrace Fidelity Month and fight for the restoration of traditional values.
