The mission of the 'Saint Damien Advocates' is to make our voice be heard,
just as Robert Louis Stevenson, in defending Saint Damien of Molokai,
following Father Damien's death from leprosy and extreme criticism being circulated
in the religious press. Robert Louis Stevenson simply wrote a letter, rebutting harsh charges.
In todays age of media and technology, we Saint Damien Advocates, simply make voices heard.
This can be simple- becoming a member, donating or joining the mail list. Or this could be a
feat of motion, as joining the demonstrations at 145 cities across the United States of America,
on March 23, 2012 protesting Obama’s Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate requiring
religious non-profits provide abortifacients (pills that make an abortion occur after one is
pregnant) in health plans to their employees. Much work is to be done defending the
Founding Fathers’ First Amendment Rights* in this age of federal and state incursions
into what once were family, charitable and religious realms protected by the state.
Already, at the capitol in the District of Columbia, Catholic Charities foster care and
adoption services has been terminated as of 2010 due to same-sex gay marriage laws,
ending 80 years of service. Just as Robert Louis Stevenson, all artists, writers, talents,
filmmakers, singers, youtubers, cartoonists, directors, producers, and others are asked
to contribute your talent to our cause, that you can say distinctly and with pride,
"I am a Saint Damien Advocate."

From page 2 'Instructions for Form 1023' of the Internal Revenue Service, "Legislative activity. An organization does not qualify for section 501(c)(3) status if a substantial part of its activities is attempting to influence legislation." Thus, 'Saint Damien Advocates,' cannot qualify as a 501(c)(3). 'Saint Damien Advocates' is a registered 'charitable organization,' defined by the Department of Attorney General State of Hawaii Tax Division Charities Unit, formed for 'advocacy.'
