Stop the Federal Government from Religious Discrimination

Last week, the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that all states must license and recognize marriages between same-sex couples.  This decision could have devastating implications for institutions and individuals that hold the belief that marriage is between one man and one woman. We have seen state discrimination, and we need you to urge Congress to prevent federal discrimination against those who support natural marriage!  

Businesses and organizations continue to be threatened because of their owners’ faith.  An Oregon bakery owned by Aaron and Melissa Klein was fined $135,000 simply for declining to make a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding. Barronelle Stutzman, a grandmother in Washington state, had to close her floral business because of the crippling fees imposed on her for not providing flower arrangements for a same-sex wedding. 

Child welfare organizations, such as Lutheran Community Services and Catholic Charities, are being threatened by this decision to recognize same-sex marriage or face losing their ability to participate in federal programs or apply for federal grants. 

Our Founders envisioned a nation where the moral and religious beliefs of individuals, faith-based organizations, and business owners would be protected, not a nation where one’s convictions about marriage could be ... (more)

Supreme Court's Marriage Ruling is Shocking Abuse of Power, Will Never Be Accepted

Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins responded today to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision forcing the people in all 50 states to embrace same-sex “marriage,”  regardless of their votes to define marriage in their states as a man-woman institution.

Of the decision FRC President Tony Perkins said:

"Five justices on the Supreme Court have overturned the votes of 50 million Americans and demanded that the American people walk away from millennia of history and the reality of human nature.

“In reaching a decision so lacking in foundation in the text of the Constitution, in our history, and in our traditions, the Court has done serious damage to its own legitimacy.

 “No court can overturn natural law.  Nature and Nature’s God, hailed by the signers of our Declaration of Independence as the very source of law, cannot be usurped by the edict of a court, even the United States Supreme Court.

Abortion: A Wound in America's Conscience

by Bob Morrison

We are a nation of idealists, yet today there is a wound in our national conscience. America will never be whole as long as the right to life granted by our Creator is denied to the unborn. For the rest of my time, I shall do what I can to see that this wound is one day healed. President Ronald Reagan State of the Union Address February 4, 1986 The State of the Union Address is a serious and ceremonial occasion for this great republic.

Gay Pride, Augustine, and Us

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Christian Post on June 30, 2015. Throughout America, "gay pride" parades took place over this past weekend in many major cities. Sadly, such parades are nothing really new. Consider Augustine's commentary about a "gay pride" parade of what he calls "effeminate" pagan priests that he witnessed early in the fifth century A.D.: Concerning the effeminates consecrated to the same Great Mother, in defiance of all the modesty which belongs to men ...

The Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage Isn't an Excuse to Attack Churches

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared on on July 1, 2015. Writing on, Mark Oppenheimer, a New York Times religion columnist, argued that in light of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states it was time to end tax exemptions for religious institutions. Rather than try to rescue tax-exempt status for organizations that dissent from settled public policy on matters of race or sexuality, we need to take a more radical ... (more)
