Thank Pres. Trump & Jeff Sessions for Directing Federal Agencies to Respect Religious Freedom.

Today, the Department of Justice (DOJ), issued guidance directing federal agencies to respect religious freedom. 

As you may remember, President Trump issued an executive order on May 4 making clear that the administration will pursue policies that "protect and vigorously promote religious liberty “ and thus directing the DOJ to issue guidelines ensuring religious liberty is protected. Today that guidance was issued and another step was taken toward undoing the anti-faith policies of the Obama administration.

President Trump and now the Department of Justice are placing federal government agencies on notice: you will not only respect the freedom of every American to believe, but the free exercise of religion.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Phony Lists, and Intimidation

by Family Research Council

What is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)? The SPLC calls itself a nonprofit civil rights organization "dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry" by using "litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy."1 It was founded in 1971 as a small civil rights law firm that fought the Ku Klux Klan for financial damages for the victims of Klan violence. But despite its laudable origins, the SPLC has over time fashioned itself into a political referee while simultaneously engaging in progressive activism, using smear tactics, intimidation, ... (more)
