Stand with Ben Carson on Marriage

Recently, a leftist group called the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) added Dr. Ben Carson to its watch list of so-called “extremists.” Why would SPLC put the esteemed former neurosurgeon on a list alongside Ku Klux Klan members and neo-Nazis? If Dr. Carson could be labeled extreme for anything, it should be his extreme success. Born into poverty, he rose to become one of the foremost neurosurgeons in the world. When he wasn’t separating conjoined twins, he was authoring books and becoming a leading cultural and political commentator.

The SPLC originally claimed their mission was to help people overcome poverty. Now they target an overcomer of poverty like Ben Carson because of his religious beliefs on marriage? The SPLC ignores poll after poll (not to mention the entire record of human history) which shows believing in natural marriage is neither rare nor extreme. By labeling him an “extremist,” SPLC is seeking to marginalize and silence Dr. Carson and anyone else rising into the national spotlight.

We at FRC have felt the results of such hateful labeling in a very real way, when a now-convicted domestic terrorist entered our Washington, D.C. headquarters in 2012 and shot our building manager, Leo Johnson, who then heroically disarmed him. In a chilling FBI interrogation video, the shooter admitted that he picked his ... (more)

Imitate Christ, Not Culture

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Christian Headlines on February 25, 2015. “A University of Illinois at Chicago student leader has been charged with sexually assaulting a 19-year-old female student in what Cook County prosecutors say was a re-enactment of scenes from the film ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’” So says the February 24 edition of the Chicago Tribune.

When Push Comes to Poll...

by Tony Perkins

Tony Perkins is President of Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Christian Post on February 25, 2015. How much is your religious liberty worth? Try $2,001. That's the going rate in Washington State, according to its attorney general. If Barronelle Stutzman wants to exercise the freedom already guaranteed to her by the First Amendment, she'll have to fork over a couple thousand dollars (which she doesn't plan on doing any time soon). The Christian owner of Arlene's Flowers is standing by her beliefs, no matter what it ... (more)
