(NASHVILLE) — State Representative Glen Casada (R–Franklin) and State Senator Jack Johnson (R–Franklin) were awarded the ‘Excellence in Civil Service’ award this week by iDo4Life, an organization focused on instilling the values of traditional marriage and encouraging those who live together to pursue holy matrimony.
The award was presented to the two Williamson County legislators on August 31st during the iDo4Life’s annual family festival which took place at the Bicentennial Mall Park State Park in downtown Nashville.
“I am honored to support an organization like iDo4Life,” said Representative Glen Casada. “Strengthening our family unit is important to solving our social ills and I am grateful for this wonderful award.”
Because the Tennessee constitution defines marriage as being between one man and one woman, state lawmakers earlier this year designated August 31st as ‘Traditional Marriage Day’ in Tennessee.
“Strong families are an important part of a vital and growing Tennessee,” said Senator Johnson. “I appreciate this honor and the work of this organization in strengthening families.”
The event at the Bicentennial Park was hosted in conjunction with the Woodmont Bible Church and Reverend Lyndon Allen’s Total Life Victory organization.
“Only monogamous Biblical marriage moves a society forward,” continued Reverend Lyndon Allen. “Our Founding Fathers invoked the wisdom of ‘Natures God’ and I stand with the Founding Fathers’ good intentions. I stand with Nature’s God and I stand for traditional marriage. In so doing, iDo4Life.”
Glen Casada serves as Chairman of the Tennessee House Republican Caucus. Jack Johnson serves as Chairman of the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee. Both legislators represent Williamson County in the Tennessee General Assembly.
