Stand with Ben Carson on Marriage

Recently, a leftist group called the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) added Dr. Ben Carson to its watch list of so-called “extremists.” Why would SPLC put the esteemed former neurosurgeon on a list alongside Ku Klux Klan members and neo-Nazis? If Dr. Carson could be labeled extreme for anything, it should be his extreme success. Born into poverty, he rose to become one of the foremost neurosurgeons in the world. When he wasn’t separating conjoined twins, he was authoring books and becoming a leading cultural and political commentator.

The SPLC originally claimed their mission was to help people overcome poverty. Now they target an overcomer of poverty like Ben Carson because of his religious beliefs on marriage? The SPLC ignores poll after poll (not to mention the entire record of human history) which shows believing in natural marriage is neither rare nor extreme. By labeling him an “extremist,” SPLC is seeking to marginalize and silence Dr. Carson and anyone else rising into the national spotlight.

We at FRC have felt the results of such hateful labeling in a very real way, when a now-convicted domestic terrorist entered our Washington, D.C. headquarters in 2012 and shot our building manager, Leo Johnson, who then heroically disarmed him.

Freedom yes, redefining marriage no

by Peter Sprigg

Peter Sprigg is Senior Fellow for Family Policy Studies at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Washington Times on March 6, 2015. By an almost 2-1 margin, Americans in a recent poll declared they agree that “States and citizens should remain free to uphold marriage as the union of a man and a woman and the Supreme Court shouldn’t force all 50 states to redefine marriage.” Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — and her eight other colleagues on the high court — would do well to take ...

Netanyahu's Timely Warning on Iran

Ken Blackwell is Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment and Bob Morrison is Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The American Thinker on March 5, 2015. Iran is the gravest danger to the U.S. and the world. Not ISIS. Not Boko Haram. Not Kony. Not Al Shabab. Iran on the path to a nuclear weapon. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint session of Congress helped refocus the distracted Obama administration’s attention on this rising threat. It did not force them, ... (more)
