Stop Discriminatory Senate Bill

The Senate plans to vote as early as Tuesday on a bill offered by Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) that would “overturn” the Supreme Court’s ruling in Hobby Lobby and force all private and employer based healthcare plans to cover contraceptives, drugs which can destroy a human embryo and sterilization services, without copay—or face crippling fines.

The Supreme Court correctly held that the HHS mandate violates the free exercise rights of family businesses like Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, who do not want to violate their conscience in order to earn a living.

Finally, more women oppose the mandate than support it in poll after poll across the United States.

Maryland's New Show and Tell

by Tony Perkins

Tony Perkins is President of Family Research Council. This article appeared on Accuracy in Academia, May 19, 2014. If you need proof that same-sex "marriage" is about more than "love," look no further than Montgomery County, Maryland. There, parents are dealing with the fallout of the state's redefinition of marriage with a sweeping new sex education curriculum.

Scholars Can Be Christian and Academic

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared on ChristianHeadlines.com, July 14, 2014. Christians have concluded that the accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John -- early followers of Jesus and witnesses of His life, death and resurrection -- are true. They have done so for a variety of reasons depending on the believer.
