    In Store Wars, the Empire Strikes Back

    When religious liberty collides with same-sex "marriage," something has to give. And usually, that "something" is Christians' rights. In this mad dash to redefine marriage in America, many in society are so focused on giving homosexuals their way that they aren't stopping to see who gets trampled underfoot. The real victims, who include children, ... (more)

    From Generation X to Generation XXX

    Most students don't need to sneak around to see soft pornography -- they just have to show up to class! In a world where sex education is as graphic as it gets, kids are being introduced to adult subjects from an earlier and earlier age. This generation of teenagers is growing up with both television so explicit it makes their parents blush and an ... (more)

    Big Apple Parents Beware

    From trans fats to Big Gulps, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has insisted that the city's interest in "public health" excuses his overreach on things like dietary choices. This seems a bit hypocritical for a mayor who just last year told a crowd, "The government should get out of your personal life!" Unfortunately, the Mayor's duplicity ... (more)

    More Life in the House

    Last month's successful vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the U.S. House, which restricts abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, appears to have given a boost to pro-life efforts in states like Texas and North Carolina. There's more good news on the pro-life front here in Washington, as House appropriators tackled the funding ... (more)

    A Cry for HELP from Senate GOP

    How many of you would feel comfortable dropping off your kids in a school that encouraged faculty cross-dressing? At least three Senate Republicans would. Today, those leaders -- Sens. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and Lisa Murkowski (R-Ak.) -- threw their support behind a bill that would force sexual confusion on almost every ... (more)

    Taking the Military at Faith Value

    There may not be a lot of atheists in foxholes, but there certainly are a lot of quiet Christians these days. Under an administration that views religion as more of a liability than an asset, more of our troops are taking the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" approach to faith. The climate of intimidation that began in the Air Force is bleeding over into ... (more)

    Delayed Ratification? Obama Shelves Mandate -- for Now

    Back in May, House Republicans started a Twitter contest to see who could describe ObamaCare in three words. The White House silenced everyone by tweeting: "It's. The. Law." Well, somebody ought to remind the administration of that, as the President's team announced at the beginning of a holiday week that it was putting the brakes on another key ... (more)

    The Laws of Nature and Nature's God

    By Bob Morrison, FRC Senior Fellow When the members of Second Continental Congress sat in Philadelphia 237 years ago, they declared the independence of a new nation. In that Declaration of Independence, the Founders had to find a basis in law for their actions. Deeply respectful of the Rule of Law as our Founders were, they sent their Olive ... (more)

    In ? We Trust

    How hard is it to lose $30,000 in government funding? Invoke God's name and find out! Louisiana Sheriff Julian Whittington had done so for 10 years as part of his local Young Marine's initiative. After a decade of voluntary prayers, the only complaint he's received is from the U.S. Justice Department -- which unfortunately happened to be funding ... (more)

    Justice Is Swerved

    If "fair and balanced" is too much to ask for, how about "honest and factual?" The mainstream press hasn't seemed interested in either since last Wednesday when the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its pair of rulings on marriage. Thanks to a new Pew Research study, we know that media bias isn't a figment of our imagination -- especially when it ... (more)
