Tillerson Not the Nominee Conservatives Were Looking For

To hear that Donald Trump may be appointing a man who not only led the charge to open the Boy Scouts to gay troop leaders but whose company directly gives to Planned Parenthood is upsetting at best. FRC knows Tillerson all too well, having worked for years to put the brakes on his reckless agenda for a scouting organization that was already dealing with staggering numbers of sexual abuse cases. Unfortunately, the BSA, under Tillerson, ultimately caved to the pressure of the far-Left, irreparably splitting the Scouts and destroying a proud and honorable American tradition.

Defense, Taxpayers Take Back Seat to Transgender Agenda

Are we to assume that taxpayers would also be hook for their hormone therapy, sexual reassignments, psychological counseling, and whatever facilities changes would need to be made to accommodate the gender-confused on base? These are serious and complex issues that directly affect the national security of the United States. Meanwhile, at the Department of Veterans Affairs, Americans are already footing the bill for hormone replacement and pre- and post- gender reassignment care.

PayPal’s Pro-Homosexual Hypocrisy

PayPal’s Pro-Homosexual Hypocrisy

PayPal’s animus toward North Carolina’s bathroom bill is interesting considering that PayPal has no trouble doing business with more than 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal including five where the penalty is death. Yet, they object to the North Carolina legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men into the women’s bathroom?

Fact, Not Fear-Based Politics

Thanks to Governor Phil Bryant (R), facts — not fear — won out in Mississippi! Yesterday, Bryant signed the “Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act” into law over the threats from corporate America and LGBT activists. After the Left’s tantrum over North Carolina, where leaders denied men access to girls’ restrooms and showers, most people started to see the liberal agenda for the extremism it is.

What Couldn’t Happen: Pushing for Polygamy

What Couldn’t Happen: Pushing for Polygamy

Gay activists weren’t the only ones celebrating after last Friday’s marriage ruling. Polygamists popped the cork on a little champagne of their own, as they wait their turn for nationwide acceptance under the court’s elastic definition of marriage.

Pride and Prejudice: A Tale of the Modern U.S. Military

If you asked Americans what the mission of the military is, most would probably say to fight and win wars. And by wars, they wouldn’t mean the cultural wars. President Obama’s radical social policies seem to suggest the latter, as yesterday’s Pentagon festivities made painfully clear.

SCOTUS Hears Arguments on Marriage

SCOTUS Hears Arguments on Marriage

Thousands of years of human history cannot be overruled by three hours of debate before nine imperfect people. But today that is the best liberals can hope for in the race to upend nature’s law — and nature’s God. Outside the U.S. Supreme Court, where the future of civilization was on trial, people from both sides of the marriage debate soaked in the sun while inside clouds gathered over the question that’s shadowed America for the last 11 years: does the court have a right to force same-sex “marriage” on every state in the union?

Toward an Army of One

The slogan used to be “An Army of one.” And if the military isn’t careful, that’s exactly what they’ll have. America’s soldiers are more disgruntled than ever, a new report in a depressing string of outcomes shows.
