Take Action

Stop Activist Judge

President Obama is on a mission to fill the nation’s highest courts with activist judges who will rubber stamp his liberal agenda.

His latest candidate is Georgetown Law professor and self-proclaimed “liberal” Pamela Harris. Right now, Senators are considering confirming her to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals where she would have a lifetime appointment to interpret the Constitution in her own image.

In fact, that’s exactly what she’s said she’d do. Speaking on a panel in 2009, Harris said, “my own best reading of the Constitution, it’s pretty close to where I am. Because I think the Constitution is a profoundly progressive document…” Harris has declared that the Constitution ought to take its meaning from her favored social movements instead of what the Framers intended. “Yes, the values, the principles, on some level of generality, are there at the beginning,” Harris said on another panel in 2008, “but they take their meaning—and they should take their meaning—from what comes after.”

This politicized view of the federal bench in which courts bend to the fashions of social movements shows a profound misunderstanding of the limited powers of a federal judge and usurps what should be the role of our elected representatives.

Meriam Saved! FRC Thanks American People, Members of Congress for Taking Action

Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins expressed deep gratitude and relief early this morning after learning that Meriam Ibrahim and her family arrived in Italy.

Meriam is a Sudanese Christian, married to a U.S. citizen, who was sentenced to death by a Sudan court for the "crime" of converting from Islam, and 100 lashes for "adultery." Meriam spent months in a notoriously rank Sudanese prison with her 21-month-old son and her newborn daughter. More than 53,000 people signed a WhiteHouse.gov petition launched by FRC asking President Obama to grant her expedited safe haven in the United States. Yesterday, Perkins testified before the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations regarding her case.

An 'accommodation' for Mother Angelica that really isn't Forcing Catholics into contracts for birth control violates their religious freedom

by Cathy Ruse and Travis Weber

Cathy Ruse is Senior Fellow for Legal Studies, and Travis Weber is Director, Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Washington Times on July 24, 2014. Despite hysterical rhetoric to the contrary, the Supreme Court last month did not deny a single woman access to contraception. Neither was any method of contraception made illegal, as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi falsely claimed. In fact, the Hobby Lobby case was not about "access" or legality at all, but about who can be forced to pay for ... (more)

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. Moms and dads, who were already fighting an uphill battle on the content of the lessons, are now coping with the news that homosexuality will be woven throughout - shattering ... (more)

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. Serious people affirm the historic person Jesus of Nazareth as God in the flesh, who died an atoning death, and rose from the grave, after serious thought and study. They ... (more)
