• An Example of Why Religious Freedom Must Be Protected

    The Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruled in May 2014 that Jack Phillips and his staff at Masterpiece Cakeshop must create cakes for same-sex celebrations and comply with Colorado’s Anti-Discrimination Act. That ruling has gained national attention as the very kind of legal attack on freedom of conscience that many state religious freedom laws, such as Indiana’s, are designed to help prevent.

  • Let’s Talk About Anti-Christian Bigotry

    If government can compel a Christian or Orthodox Jewish businessman to participate in a ceremony that attaches sinful homosexuality to “marriage,” then the State can compel ANY American citizen or institution to violate ANY of their cherished beliefs. That is the essence of tyranny.

  • The Left Asks: What is Truth?

    Harry Reid summed up the entire political philosophy of the left — the end justifies the means. It doesn’t matter if a claim is accurate or not, it only matters that it does damage to your competition. Reid and his merry band of Democrats support consumer protection from soap sellers through federal truth in advertising laws, yet those laws don’t apply to a Senate Leader relishing the impact his lie had on the election for the presidency.

  • What’s Really Happening in Indiana…and America

    The Left has become predictably unglued because the government of Indiana has had the audacity to actually and specifically protect every Indianan, regardless of whether they own a business or not, from attacks on their religious freedom by governments and from Leftist activists who seek to force them to do their will.

  • Thou Shalt Not Lie

    If you’re a liar, maybe you’re actually not such a great person. If you feel like you need to lie in order to get people to adopt your ideas, maybe they’re not such great ideas. If you have to lie about your “evil” enemies to get people to dislike them, then maybe YOU’RE THE ONE WHO’S THE BAD GUY.

  • Do TSA’s Threat-Spotting Tips Threaten The Fourth Amendment?

    The TSA has kept its Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques, or SPOT, checklist out of the public eye for quite a while, but on Friday The Intercept published the 92-point checklist after a disgruntled TSA source divulged it.

  • Out, Outraged…and Out-of-Line: The Homosexual Assault on Freedom

    The homosexuals’ willingness…nay, their eagerness…to deprive other people of their rights and freedoms by their deliberate misuse of “equality” or “rights,” etc., reveals the true nature of this conflict. They have discarded thousands of years of human history, which has always deemed homosexual behavior as outside the norm, if not deviant.

  • Left’s Mass Hysteria and Lies about Indiana’s RFRA

    If all you had to go on was the reaction of God-hating sodomite activists and their fellow travelers, you might think nothing like Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) has ever happened before in our entire history. Of course, you would be wrong. We’ve had a federal RFRA in place since President Clinton signed it into law back in ’93, with the backing of an almost unanimous Congress, and half the states have identical laws on their books, as well. So, why is the radical Left throwing this massive hissy fit over the law in Indiana?

  • So Sure of Our Errant Protests

    How did one of our three branches of governing come down against what was so engrained within our American fabric? This wasn’t a judicial ruling of any worth, let alone of any constitutional value. It was, in fact, an intentional assault upon the religious freedoms and beliefs of the majority.

  • Enough is Enough

    According to a new report from the Government Accountability Office, the federal government has subsidized the world’s largest abortion provider to the tune of $1.5 billion over the last three years. Had a group of pro-life congresspersons not requested this data, the American people would likely still be ignorant of the extent to which their tax dollars are being used to fund a practice that many believe to be morally abhorrent.

Bill Clinton Supported Religious Freedom

Bill Clinton Supported Religious Freedom

Let us never believe that the freedom of religion imposes on any of us some responsibility to run from our convictions. Let us instead respect one another’s faiths, fight to the death to preserve the right of every American to practice whatever convictions he or she has, but bring our values back to the table of American discourse to heal our troubled land.

Indiana: War on Christian Values Out in the Open

Indiana is now the crossroads of the war against morality, freedom and Christian values in the public square. As Indiana passes a bill to protect religious freedom in the face of multiple attacks on it across our nation–like the U.S. Congress and a Democrat President did some 20 years ago, and many states have done since then–homosexual activists are coming out of the woodwork to demonize religious liberty.

Accusing God of Bigotry, Hate Speech, And Child Abuse

As secular controls increase and open hostility toward Christianity advances, our freedom to faithfully teach and practice our beliefs will continue to fall prey to greater obstructions and outright interference by a liberal political machine intent on dismantling our Judeo-Christian foundation. We are seeing plenty of evidence of this in our current day. Anyone who dares to declare (no matter how compassionate the approach) a belief that runs counter to the liberal social agenda, better be prepared to face the wrath of the social progressives.

A Bold Proposal for Conservative GOP Candidates

These last few GOP horse races have been jam-packed with would-be conservative presidents who, after infighting with largely simpatico opponents, have canceled each other out, limped off to lick their wounds and left the perpetually underwhelmed GOP base to stay home and not vote for “imminently electable” establishment paragons like Presidents Dole, McCain and Romney. Divide and conquer. That’s how the “moderate” RINO establishment plays the primary. And then they lose the general.

Ted Cruz is making a bet that the center of gravity of America can and should move. That our youth need to hear that every moment matters, that there is right and wrong, that choices have consequences for which they must take personal responsibility. And that is what really defines the essence of freedom.

Where Reverence Meets Perfection

Arlington is the place where men and women in the hundreds of thousands, who have made the ultimate sacrifice for you and me, have been laid to rest. It is also a place of remembrance of the price paid for the freedoms for every American. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most honorable place to be buried, and the most sobering. It is the most hallowed of ground.

How do we oppose this lure of covetousness in our own heart, how do we oppose the politics of covetousness in our culture?
