    Liberal Judges Sacrifice Women's Safety to Abortion Agenda

    Earlier this week, in a transparent act of judicial slight-of-hand, two judges on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled a pro-life bill in Mississippi unconstitutional.

    Guard Gives Kids' Camp the Boot

    Whether it's erasing a Bible verse on a white board or the banning of pocket-sized Gideon Bibles from an Air Force base, our military service members, under the Obama administration, have experienced an unprecedented rise in the suppression of their religious speech.

    Rights Gone Wrong in the Senate

    Persecution a Mute Point at Obama White House

    As Iraqi Christians fled Mosul this weekend, the horror of having to leave home because of one's faith was met with the further indignity of being stripped of all but the clothes on their backs.

    President's Order Leaves No Faith in Business

    With the world in deep turmoil, and a struggling economy, Americans are looking for leadership to confront these many challenges. What kind of leadership do we see coming from the White House?
