Rule of Law Refused in California

Newswire

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy Sunday declined to vacate Friday’s premature order from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in the lawsuit concerning California’s marriage amendment. The Proposition 8 legal team filed an emergency application Saturday that argued the 9th Circuit’s order prematurely lifted a stay on a district court order that had declared the amendment unconstitutional.

ADF: SCOTUS Ruling Leaves Proposition 8 Intact

Newswire

The U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday declined to review the validity of Proposition 8, California’s constitutional amendment protecting marriage as the union of one man and one woman. According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, without an appellate court decision declaring the amendment unconstitutional, Proposition 8 remains the law of the land in California.

California Outlaws Normalcy; Liberty Counsel Sues to Get it Back

Gina Miller

The radical leftist leadership in California has taken an unprecedented step down the cursed road to Sodom and Gomorrah by declaring it illegal to provide kids under 18 with counseling and therapy to help reduce, manage or eliminate unwanted same-sex attraction. This is truly astonishing. Only a society that has become deeply sickened in its soul would sink to such dark, ignorant depths.

California Leads–In the Wrong Direction

Rebekah Rast

California has the ninth largest economy in the world. Once booming with private corporations, agriculturally rich farmlands and tourists, the state is now losing businesses, much-needed food crops and even vacationers. How did the state that all other states sought to emulate fall to the bottom? Along with pristine beaches and beautiful weather, California also has a tax base unfriendly to businesses and those with wealth; it has a rampant environmental movement destroying communities and industries and caters to and favors the public sector union workforce so much so you’d think the state was on a mission to commit economic suicide.

California: Grateful to Almighty God for Our Freedom

William J. Federer

In 1769, the first Spanish missions were founded in California by Franciscan missionary Junipero Serra, whose statue is in the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall. California became the 31st State on SEPTEMBER 9, 1850. Its Constitution, which prohibits slavery, stated: "We, the People of the State of California, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom...do establish this Constitution."

Things Not So Golden in America Anymore

Rebekah Rast

In the 1850s droves of gold-hunters hoping to make it rich rushed into what would later be established as the Golden State. The pristine beaches, vast mountains and plenty of opportunity persuaded some to stay in the state. But now, California is facing a different kind of rush—one that is causing people to pick up and leave.

California Emulates European Socialism, Gets Same Results

Howard Rich

The euro zone isn’t the only economy reeling from “failed states.” The United States has several of its own — most notably California and Illinois. Both California and Illinois are hoping that tax hikes will bridge gaping deficits created by politicians’ failure to rein in government growth — including expanded entitlements and exorbitant public sector pensions. Does any of this sound familiar? It should.

He’s Not There!

Paula Dagnel

During the time of the early Church, when one believer would greet another, he would say “He is risen!” And the other believer would respond “He is risen, indeed!” I’d love to see that brought back to the present day; and if not every time we greet our fellow believer, at the very least, on this Easter weekend.

What If Satan Is Real?

Dave Daubenmire

Do you believe in God? Most Americans do. Nearly 93% of Americans believe in some type of “higher power.” The United States has the highest population of self-identified Christians in the world, nearly 250 million. That is 78% of Americans who identify themselves as believers in the Christian God. But if 78% of Americans believe in the Christian God why do so few believe in the Devil?

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
