Commentary

July 24, 2015

You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. The Bible is clear that teaching our children God's ways should be at the core of our instruction, not simply a spiritual afterthought. The reason for this is because God knew the only way to keep a nation focused on God, was for the people to have that focus. While many Christian lament the removal of the 10 Commandments from schools, courthouses and event State Capitols, like the recent case in Oklahoma, the reality is the truth of those commandments and its centrality to our lives was carted off a long time before the tablets. I applaud Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin and state attorney general, Scott Pruitt, for defending the historic display. But more importantly, I applaud the moms and dads who are helping to inscribe these truths on the hearts of their children - beyond the reach of a court. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com.

  • NEA's Extra Curricular Activities? Fighting Freedom

    July 28, 2015
    It may have taken place over the July 4th weekend, but the annual meeting of the National Education Association, focused on advancing an anti-freedom agenda. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Over the July 4th weekend, America's biggest teacher's union decided to celebrate freedom by condemning it. At its annual meeting, the NEA passed a resolution targeting state Religious Freedom Restoration Acts. As part of the measure, it promises to develop materials about the dangers of doing what the First Amendment protects: living and working according to your faith. How does this possibly concern teachers? It doesn't. And while millions of them are forced to join the NEA by state law, they aren't forced to sit by silently while the union uses their own dues to attack them. It's time for members and parents to stand up to one of the nation's biggest bullies. If the NEA is active in your schools, urge elected officials to send the group away-and take their radical agenda with them! For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • Pentagon Skirts Real Issues with Transgenders

    July 27, 2015
    No wonder President Obama isn't putting boots on the ground. He's too busy putting heels there instead! Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. When the President said he wanted to makeover the military, lifting the ban on transgenders isn't what most people had in mind. But, that's exactly what the Pentagon is planning over the next six months. Calling it an "outdated" policy, Defense leaders are fast-tracking the repeal to let the gender confused into our ranks. "Considering the abysmal condition of our military, why is this a top priority for the Obama administration?" General Jerry Boykin asked. The world is literally imploding and all this White House cares about is catering to the sexually confused. If this President were as focused on the world's threats as he is on LGBT activism, America and the world would be the safest in modern time. Rather the White House is too busy using the troops as carriers for his social agenda leaving the real enemy unchecked. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • Oklahoma's Ten Most Wanted

    July 24, 2015
    You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.

  • Free Speech in De-Klein

    July 23, 2015
    It used to be speak now or forever hold your peace-now it's just hold your peace! Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you're invited to work a same-sex "wedding," Oregon says you'd better not RSVP "no." In that state, it'll cost you more than money. It'll cost you your voice. Ask Aaron and Melissa Klein. The Christian bakers thought $135,000 in fines was a lot for turning down a same-sex "marriage," until they realized they'd lost their free speech too! Commissioner Brad Avakian ordered the couple to "cease and desist" talking about their case-or face further punishment. His order made the Kleins speechless all right-but not for long. Once the shock wore off, Aaron made it clear they wouldn't stop speaking out, no matter what the government threatened. "We will not be silenced," Aaron vowed. Unfortunately, liberals won't be satisfied until they have silenced Christians like the Kleins. Which, based on Aaron's statement, means they won't be satisfied any time soon!

  • Casey at the Bat for Marriage

    July 22, 2015
    If you're wondering what could possibly stand between same-sex marriage and America, try local leaders living out their faith. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. For many local clerks and judges, it wasn't a question of if their beliefs would come under attack, but when. From small counties in Arkansas to busy towns in Texas, hundreds refused to choose between their convictions and their careers. If that means losing his job, Kentucky Clerk Chris Cockrell explained, so be it! "Five lawyers have imposed their personal view of... marriage... on us," said Kim Davis. "As a Christian, I have strong views too. And I don't stand alone." She's right. In Decatur, an entire office resigned. Others, like Casey Davis, vow "I'll go to jail before I quit my job." Liberals probably thought the country would just roll over and accept the court's redefinition of marriage. But they were wrong. Christian everywhere agree: marriage law may have changed, but the First Amendment has not. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • The Sum of Planned Parenthood's Parts

    July 21, 2015
    Baby bodies aren't the byproduct of abortion at Planned Parenthood. They're a product--period. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. It sounds like a scene from Frankenstein-but it's actually a video of Planned Parenthood. In it, the group's medical director talks about their secret business of selling body parts. Baby body parts. In a shocking undercover video, she explains that they charge thirty to a hundred dollars per piece, depending on demand. Livers, hearts, lungs, and legs-they all sell on the group's black market. And in perfect condition, she brags. Why? Because clinics are coached on aborting babies without damaging their profitable parts. "[You say] 'I'm not gonna crush that part, I'm going to [crush above and below], and I'm gonna see if I can get it all intact.'" Human harvesting isn't just a federal crime-it's a crime against humanity. It is time Congress put an end to taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. You can help, call Congress today.

  • Planned Parenthood Caught

    July 20, 2015
    For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Yet another official with Planned Parenthood is caught in an undercover video describing actions of Planned Parenthood, which on their face appear to be not only federal crime-but a crime against humanity. A top medical official with the nation's largest abortion provider was caught describing how the Billion dollar a year organizations traffics the body parts of aborted babies. This is not the first time, as Planned Parenthood officials have been caught aiding sex trafficking, covering up rape and suspected sexual abuse of underage girls. Unlike liberal activists who twist the words of Christians and even fabricate things they attribute to them, these are the very words of the abortion advocates themselves. I encourage you not to listen to what people say people said, but do your best to hear what they said for yourself. What comes out of their mouth is important, because it reflects what is in the heart. For more go to Tonyperkins.com (More Details)

    July 14, 2015
    Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Based on the latest numbers, it looks like Americans are more interested in a provider-in-chief than a commander-in-chief. Both parties say they care more about the poor -- and right now, there are plenty to care about. (More Details)
  • Tylenol's Extra Strength Agenda

    July 13, 2015
    Tylenol is supposed to cure headaches-not cause them! Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. What does sexuality have to do with aspirin? Nothing, but that hasn't stopped Tylenol from trying to sell America on its radical version of the family. From two gay dads to a same-sex prom, Tylenol's new commercials say, "Family isn't defined by who you love, but how." When marketing was asked about the campaign, it said, "...Because we're an iconic American brand, and we want to continue serving families in the future, it's important that we reflect what that family is today." But for most Americans, the family is what it always has been-one man, one woman, for life. And they're sick of having their favorite products politicized. Ask J.C. Penney, Ford, and Target, whose stocks tanked when they tried to make statements instead of sales. If Tylenol wants to make people feel better, then it should stick to medicine and stop forcing people to swallow its propaganda. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • He Who Has Earmarks, Let Him Hear!

    July 10, 2015
    You've heard of Jurassic Park, but it's Jurassic Pork taxpayers should worry about! I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Senator Tom Corburn was right. The only change Washington cares about is in your pocket! With $5.9 billion in transportation projects, the freeway isn't exactly free! And it isn't just the Pennsylvania train park that's railroading taxpayers. People are still steaming over the North Carolina teapot museum-and the boatloads of money going to Chicago's Shedd Aquarium. Turns out, the only green around those gills was $750,000. In New York City, it takes almost a million dollars to keep the ballet on its toes, which is tu-tu much according to taxpayers. And of course, people in Detroit love the Old Tiger stadium, but not when it gets the lion's share of the money. At $3.8 million, the ballpark is stealing more than bases. It's no wonder some Republicans are frustrated. There's no use banning new earmarks if you won't stop the payment of old ones! For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • Is This What Obama Meant by Trans-parency?

    July 09, 2015
    What kind of government says its health care can't afford to keep people alive-but will pay to change their gender? Yours! Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. The President's slogan ought to be "sex change we can believe in!" It's what his administration believes-and what Americans will be paying for, thanks to a new rule from the Office of Personnel Management. The same White House that thinks we should ration health care wants to use the money they're saving on gender therapy, pills, and reassignment surgeries. "Effective January 1, 2016," OPM writes, "no carrier participating in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program [can exclude] services, drugs, or supplies related to gender transition..." If the government thought sick patient care was expensive, it should see the tab for sex change surgery, which can run up to $70,000! Only in Washington does it seem reasonable to cut care for the sick, while also creating a right for sex change coverage that'll only increase the ailing population! For more, go to TonyPerkins.com.

  • The Leaders of the Flee World...

    July 08, 2015
    If you thought America had a homeless problem, you should see the world's. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. They may not speak the same language, but they tell the same story. A record 60 million people have been driven from their homes, refugees-not just of war, but persecution. According to the U.N., the number of displaced families is "dwarfing anything we've seen before." In Iraq, the march of ISIS has forced 3.6 million Christians and other minorities to flee to nearby Turkey and Pakistan to rebuild their lives. "The world has lost much of its capacity to prevent conflicts and to solve them," the U.N. warned. "The result is the dramatic situation we present today." With a population the size of Italy on the run, you'd think the United States would be doing more to help. But I suppose we shouldn't be surprised. This administration can't fight persecution abroad when its policies are leading to it here at home. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • Obama to Military: I Only Have Ice for You

    July 07, 2015
    The military's focus shouldn't be ice-it should be ISIS. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. According to a recent Washington Times report the commander-n-chief's latest mission for our military is to measure the ice in the Artic. Despite all of the threats that are brewing around the world, the White House has made the environment a top priority. A new report says that the Pentagon is expanding the military's role in the Arctic, so that our servicemen can monitor its "changing conditions," like ice levels. Already stretched thin, with bad morale and struggling to retain current members and recruitment new ones, the President argues that we should up the military presence in one of the remotest places on the planet. "Difficulty in developing accurate sea ice models... is creating challenges for DOD," the government says. I'm sure most of the men and women in our military wished global warming was their biggest problem. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • SCOTUS Decision

    July 06, 2015
    "Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female..." Hello this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. That was Jesus responding to the lawyers of his day questioning the boundaries of marriage. Jesus continued, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? The decision by 5 lawyers on the Supreme Court redefining marriage has left many Christian wondering what to do. First, this declaration by the Court not only contradicts all of recorded history, and anthropology, but it contradicts the very declaration of God. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once declared: a law of man that contradicts the law of the Creator is no law at all. A Christian is one who follows Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was not silent nor ambivalent about the definition of marriage. But times have changed you say. Well the choice then is between following the times or following Jesus - as for me and my family - we chose Jesus. For more go to tonyperkins.com (More Details)
  • America: Born on the Fourth of July

    July 03, 2015
    Ronald Reagan said it best: If we forget what we did, we will forget who we are. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Are your children being taught about the First Continental Congress? That's the gathering of our forefathers who met in Carpenters Hall in Philadelphia in 1774. They met, they said, to protect their "civil and religious liberties" from British oppression. When one delegate called Congress to unite in prayer, some objected. We're too diverse, they said. But Sam Adams, a bold Christian patriot, replied: "I can hear the prayer of any man of piety and virtue who is a friend to his country." Our First Continental Congress began its great work on their knees, united in prayer, united in their love of liberty. Have we grown too proud to pray? I hope not. This July 4th, more than any, America needs it. Join me in lifting up our nation, remembering the words of Thomas Jefferson, that "The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time."

  • Washington's Biggest Deficit: Public Confidence

    July 02, 2015
    They say that 91 percent of Americans don't trust Washington. My only question is: what's wrong with the other eight? Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Last year's Congress is topping a new list-but according to Gallup, it isn't one they'll be proud of. One point off of its worst score ever, only 8% of Americans have confidence in Congress-which beats out every other institution for the lowest rating, including unions, big business, and the media. "Americans' frustration with the government's performance has eroded [their] trust in all U.S. political institutions," Gallup said. And Congress isn't the only one in the doghouse. There's been a 10-point drop for the presidency and a 12-point drop for the Supreme Court. Sounds a lot like the warning of Proverbs 29:2 "When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan." As William Penn once said, "Government, like clocks takes its motion from men." Improving the standing of government requires changing the character of government and that starts with us.

  • JP Morgan Banks on LGBT Conformity

    July 01, 2015
    Having done all to stand firm stand... Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. The apostle Paul was speaking to first generation Christians who were living in a culture that was openly hostile to biblical teaching. Christians in corporate America would do well to find direction and strength in Paul's words. Take JP Morgan where they may be concerned about equity-but not when it comes to moral or political views. In a memo to employees, the banking firm isn't asking-it's ordering-employees to support homosexuality. As part of the directive, staff are told to "listen to music, see movies, or read books about gay people." "Attend gay pride events," executives say, "incorporate LGBT issues into your everyday conversations," and even put dollars into pro-gay companies. But that's not the worst of it. The memo included a rainbow "ally" sign that workers are supposed to post in their personal workstations. Non-compliance, the company implies, will be noticed. Followers of Jesus - it is time to stand. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • Dixie Makes a Play for Home Plates

    June 30, 2015
    The Dixie company that helps set the table is also helping to clear it of distractions! Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. These days, what's for dinner may not be nearly as important as who's at dinner. "Dark for Dinner" is a new movement by Dixie to help parents unplug from their phones and connect with their kids instead. Believe it or not, only 20% of families eat dinner without the distraction of TVs or other devices. The slogan is "be more here," and Dixie hopes more parents will be. In government studies, kids who eat with their parents at least five times a week are three times less likely to use drugs and two and a half times less likely to drink alcohol. The message for moms and dads couldn't be clearer: Kids thrive when we give them quality time-not just the leftovers of our busy schedules. Try going dark for dinner and give your family what they're really hungry for: attention! For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • SPLC's Jihadists Hit List

    June 29, 2015
    Would a legitimate civil rights organization try to intimidate and silence women? Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Last week the infamous Southern Poverty Law Center made a target out of 12 women by putting them on a list of what they call extremists. What do these 12 have in common? Besides being women, they are all conservatives and they have all spoken out against radical Islam that abuses and kills women. What the SPLC has done is put these women on a Jihadist hit list. Speaking from experience this is dangerous and SPLC's reckless labeling of their political foes should stop. As Americans we can and will have disagreements, but we should be able to dialogue and even debate issues of importance - not silence our opponents with tactics like the Southern Poverty Law Center that literally put lives at risk. The SPLC claims they are a protector of the poor when in reality they are a liberal leviathan that stalks and tries to scare conservatives into silence. For more go to Tonyperkins.com (More Details)
  • In Loo of Common Sense...

    June 26, 2015
    Is it a lavatory or a laboratory for social change? Depends on who you ask. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Under the Obama administration, what happens in the bathroom is an issue for the boardroom. Big Brother has already been a big nuisance, piling on regulations under ObamaCare, the EPA, IRS, and now OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This month, OSHA is demanding the W.C. become P.C. by allowing workers to use the restroom they think fits their gender best. Apparently, OSHA is concerned with everyone's safety except the 99.7% of the country forced to live in this brave new world of bathrooms. Is this really a priority of the American people? With the real wages of American workers continue to decline, American cities are erupting in deadly violence and ISIS and Iran threaten our security and that of our allies, forcing businesses to change their indoor plumbing is the priority of the White House?

  • 'Morally Acceptable' Doesn't Mean Socially Good

    June 25, 2015
    Morality is reportedly on the move and not in the right direction. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington. According to a Gallup poll, Americans are shifting on morality -away from it. Huge majorities of people now believe that premarital sex and homosexuality are "morally acceptable." Even support for polygamy has doubled! Divorce topped the list as the "most moral"-with 71% approval. But here's how backwards we've become. Ending a marriage is more popular than wearing fur-by 10 points! Interestingly, the biggest taboo is still infidelity. Could it be that what is at the heart of this shift in morality is spiritual infidelity - a rejection of God's standard? The same Bible that calls cheating immoral does the same for premarital sex, homosexuality, and divorce. We all have fallen short of God's standard. But just because we can't reach God's standard without His grace, does not mean we jettison it for the prevailing standard of today that anything goes. Because this prevailing standard is passing, but God's standard is eternal. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • From Bibs and Diapers to Caps and Gowns

    Most teen moms don't graduate high school and become valedictorian. But most teen moms aren't Trameka Pope! Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Trameka Pope said she didn't want to be a statistic. But now she is-as the top 1% of her class! The teen mom, who was pregnant and homeless in the 8th grade, has a message for kids in trouble: don't give up. "I was told that God [doesn't] make mistakes, and he wouldn't give anyone a child who wasn't ready for one." It took five years of hard work, but Trameka says her baby motivated her. Now, the graduating senior's been accepted to over 26 universities and has $60,000 in scholarships. When other people told her having a baby would ruin her future, she ignored them. "...[I]t doesn't matter if you have a child as a teen. No matter what people say about you, you can make it. And you can become something." In Trameka's case, that something is a role model.

  • Time for Parents to Face Facts about Facebook

    June 23, 2015
    Is social media leading to social mania? Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. More than 1.3 billion people are on Facebook-and chances are, your teenager's one of them. After 11 years, psychologists are just starting to study the effects of the site-and not all of them are good. A team in Poland just found that "excessive involvement" with Facebook was linked with higher levels of depression, feelings of shame and rejection. Is it time for a digital detox in your house? Summer's here, and with Twitter, Instagram, tablets, TVs, laptops, and game systems, kids' screen time is at an all-time high. One family in North Carolina dealt with it this way: they went on a month-long technology fast. At first, the kids complained, but in a video that went viral, the Robinsons explain that boredom gave way to creativity. Unplug and give them a healthy perspective. Maybe then they'll be more apt to "like" the life they have! For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
  • Jesus Weeps with those Who Grieve

    June 22, 2015
    Jesus Wept. Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. That may be the shortest verse in the bible, but it expresses in an undeniable way the love and humanity of Jesus. Arriving at the home of his dear friends Mary and Martha upon the death of their brother Lazarus, Jesus was move with deep compassion at their loss. Even though He knew that in just moments He would raise his friend Lazarus from the grave, where he had been for four days, he wept, not for Lazarus, but for those whose hearts were broken by their loss of a dear friend and brother. For the families and friends of those who were slain by a gunman in Charleston, SC, you do not weep alone. As believers in Jesus Christ they have entered into eternal life, so we weep not for them, but for those whose hearts have been broken and their lives turned upside down by this horrendous act of evil. Our prayers, our tears are with you. For more go to tonyperkins.com (More Details)

  • Preference vs. Persecution

    June 18, 2015
    Should America be concerned about the persecution of Christians abroad? Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington. There is no question that Christians should be concerned to the point of action as Paul instructed the expanding church to financially aid those being persecuted in Jerusalem. But what about America as a nation? From the very beginning America has stood for religious freedom and it has historically stood against religious persecution. In fact, in 1999 Congress passed the International Religious Freedom Act which states that "it shall be the policy of the United States to condemn violations of religious freedom, and to promote, and to assist other governments in the promotion of the fundamental right to freedom of religion." Unfortunately, under the Obama administration religious freedom has not been a priority. While the State Department has conducted numerous international conferences to advance the sexual liberty of transgenders, it has been silent on the fundamental human right of religious freedom. It's time for change. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com. (More Details)
