No Phony Truces in the Battle to Block Most Anti-Life, Liberal Court in a Generation

Using the Garland nomination to 'transform' America
April 25, 2016: While campaigning for president in 2008, Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform" America. And there can be little doubt that his vision is an America where the Second Amendment only applies to government officials, religious liberty exists only to protects private belief, unelected government agencies are given carte blanche to impose regulation on businesses and consumers, equal protection requires racial quotas, and the president can simply rewrite laws passed by Congress that displease him.
April 17: Stand With the Persecuted Sunday, a Call to Solidarity Between Domestic and Global Church
April 12, 2016: Last month, the United States formally recognized that ISIS is committing genocide against Middle Eastern Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria. What next? While steps must be taken to stop future atrocities from occurring, provide aid to those whose lives have been upended, and to plan for their future, we must also recognize and nurture the solidarity that we as American Christians share with our brothers and sisters overseas. To advocate for them we must love them. And to love them we must know them.
Dancing around Christian Persecution
March 31, 2016: Unlike many of our colleagues, we did not criticize President Barack Obama for dancing the tango during his recent trip to Argentina. It's not bad for America's leaders to respect other people's cultures. In this instance, we only wish the President had danced the tango with our First Lady.
Mr. President, Mr. Secretary: It is Genocide. Say so!
March 07, 2016: President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have until March 17th to issue a determination that ISIS' attacks on Christians in the Mideast are genocide. Time is running out. The foot-dragging and hesitancy of this administration in calling it genocide is inexplicable. Why do they have to be prodded to do what is right?
Antonin Scalia's Wisdom on Faith and American Success
February 23, 2016: At the funeral of Justice Antonin Scalia, his son Paul, giving the homily, cited his father's belief that the success of America arose from the blessing of God - a blessing experienced in part because of faith's role in the life of this nation.
Religious and Economic Liberty: Flip Sides of Freedom's Coin
February 22, 2016: The late Justice Antonin Scalia was many things - brilliant, principled, good hearted, fearless. He was also an unmatched defender of constitutional liberties, not least of which is property rights.
ACA and Insurers Create More Barriers for Consumers
February 06, 2016: When the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare, was enacted, Americans were promised a healthcare system in which insurance companies would be held accountable and patients would have access to affordable care. Six years later, however, the reality has proven to be quite different-a plan that was supposed to mend our nation's fractured healthcare system has driven up healthcare costs, decreased market competition, and ultimately harmed patients.
The March for Life: Fight for What's Right, Irrespective of the Odds
January 21, 2016: It has been more than four decades since the Supreme Court ruled inRoe v. Wade that the unborn were of no account. Precious life created in the image of God was treated as but an inconvenience to be removed "on demand." A Constitution drafted by those who believed in life and liberty became a license to kill the most helpless and defenseless among us. The ruling greatly accelerated what Pope John Paul II termed the "culture of death."
