FRC Welcomes Craig James

Craig James, a Fox Sports football analyst who was fired after the network learned that he had expressed his views in support of natural marriage during his race for the U.S. Senate 18 months earlier, has joined Family Research Council as an Assistant to the President. In this role, Craig will cultivate relationships with like-minded Americans across the country who share a common concern for the growing hostility toward free speech and religious liberty. He will continue to share his own story of religious discrimination and educate Americans to the expanding threats to our First Freedom.

"We are very excited and pleased to announce that Craig James is joining Family Research Council's team," said Family Research Council President Tony Perkins. "Losing one job because of his religious beliefs has made room for another: raising awareness about the threats to our most precious liberty - the freedom of religion. His leadership skills, his courage in the face of religious hostility, and his passion for faith, family and freedom will make him a great addition to the FRC team." Read more here.

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were created without benefit of transparency, by a non-profit organization, with the involvement of very few educators, and majority funded and influenced by corporate interests. Democratic participation, educator input, and opportunity for revision during the "closed door" ... (more)

Air Force must follow Congressional intent on religious liberty

Leanna Baumer is Senior Legislative Assistant at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Daily Caller on April 18, 2014. For two years, Congress has directed the Department of Defense to better protect the rights of service members to live out their religious beliefs. Recent controversy at the Air Force Academy in March drew attention yet again to the fact that even the most casual religious expressions - simply posting a Bible verse on a personal white board - can result in wrongful command pressure to forgo expressing one's ...
