Help Us Stop the Battle against Our Armed Forces

The men and women of the United States military serve with distinction throughout the world, but a battle for their hearts and minds is being waged against them here at home.

It has been recently brought to light that a defense organization that produces training courses and material for the armed forces, the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI), has been using curriculum for a course on sexism that teaches the notion that the Bible, the United States Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence are "historical influences that allow sexism to continue."

When brought to light, the courses were taken off the DEOMI website and marked as “under revision,” but simply hiding such Leftist propaganda from public view doesn’t get to the root of the problem. Our military men and women put their lives on the line to defend our Constitution, and many of them do so proudly with a faith in the God of the Bible. To teach courses that undermine the faith of our service men and women and our nation’s founding documents is to undermine those who defend America.

Please join me in signing our petition to Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter that urges him to get DEOMI under control. The organization is already in turmoil, with its commandant, Col. Morris “Reese” Turner having been suspended in December for alleged ... (more)

“There is no broad social consensus, and there is no global consensus that society would be better served by redefining marriage to include same-sex couples. To the contrary, America remains deeply divided over this issue and if the Supreme Court forces a redefinition it will only further divide the nation."

Law Firms Betray Their Principles When They Shun Unpopular Representation

by Travis Weber

Travis Weber is Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council. This article appeared in on April 28, 2015. The legal profession typically affirms its proud tradition of defending the unpopular. Lawyers will often agree to represent a reviled defendant because they understand that our adversarial system requires vigorous representation on both sides if justice is to prevail. A strong legal defense is even more important when the issue is subjected to heated and emotionally charged public debate. We, ... (more)
