Help Us Stop the Battle against Our Armed Forces

The men and women of the United States military serve with distinction throughout the world, but a battle for their hearts and minds is being waged against them here at home.

It has been recently brought to light that a defense organization that produces training courses and material for the armed forces, the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI), has been using curriculum for a course on sexism that teaches the notion that the Bible, the United States Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence are "historical influences that allow sexism to continue."

When brought to light, the courses were taken off the DEOMI website and marked as “under revision,” but simply hiding such Leftist propaganda from public view doesn’t get to the root of the problem. Our military men and women put their lives on the line to defend our Constitution, and many of them do so proudly with a faith in the God of the Bible. To teach courses that undermine the faith of our service men and women and our nation’s founding documents is to undermine those who defend America.

Please join me in signing our petition to Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter that urges him to get DEOMI under control. The organization is already in turmoil, with its commandant, Col. Morris “Reese” Turner having been suspended in December for alleged ... (more)

Stand For Marriage Sunday: Religious Freedom at Risk

On April 28, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for and against redefining marriage in America. Though marriage between a man and a woman has existed since the beginning and is the cornerstone of ordered society, the time-honored institution is serious trouble. Before federal judges began to overturn marriage laws, 30 states had protected natural marriage in their Constitutions. Now the High Court is poised to decide for us all. It is time for our voices to be heard in the Courts of Heaven and the Courts of Public Opinion.

On Sunday April 26th, we encourage our entire network of Watchmen pastors and their millions of church members to view a brief video, distribute the Bulletin Insert, and then spend time during worship in focused prayer for the Court and our Country.

This article appeared in National Catholic Register on April 22, 2015. “Sometimes we’re too machista and don’t allow room for the woman” was Pope Francis’ heartfelt response in January to a young Filipino girl who shared with him her harrowing tale of life on the street and questioned the meaning of suffering. “But the woman is able to see things with a different eye than men. Women are able to pose questions that we men ... (more)

What Young People Need to Know about Humility

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Christian Headlines on April 22, 2015. It is a conceit of the young to believe that because something has occurred to them, it is a novel idea, one unknown to previous, plodding generations. This tendency cuts across the board and includes young Christians. And then they read the classical philosophers… the Church Fathers… the Protestant Reformers… the Enlightenment thinkers… Alexis de Tocqueville and Edmund ... (more)
