It's a sad sign of the times that some states have preferred to sever longstanding partnerships with faith-based providers rather than allow them to continue caring for and placing children informed by traditional moral beliefs about the family.

Engaging Culture on All Fronts

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Canon and Culture on August 11, 2014. A prominent Christian leader recently said to me that for Evangelicals and traditional Catholics and Orthodox, the metaphor of putting our fingers in the dike as holes of evil burst through it is anachronistic. We are not having a few fissures in the dam, he said. We are experiencing a mudslide. Our cultural erosion is comprehensive and accelerating. From family structure to religious liberty, the moral ...
