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. In a chilling FBI interrogation video, the shooter admitted that he picked his ... (more)

Imitate Christ, Not Culture

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Christian Headlines on February 25, 2015. “A University of Illinois at Chicago student leader has been charged with sexually assaulting a 19-year-old female student in what Cook County prosecutors say was a re-enactment of scenes from the film ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’” So says the February 24 edition of the Chicago Tribune.

Susan Rice: Choking on a Gnat

by Ken Blackwell

Ken Blackwell is Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment at Family Research Council. This article appeared in on February 28, 2015. Even in a Senate then controlled by Democrats, President Obama’s National Security Adviser, Susan E. Rice, could not be confirmed as his second term Secretary of State. That’s because she notoriously went on five Sunday television news talk shows to claim that the September 11, 2012 attack on our diplomatic compound at Benghazi was provoked by an anti-Islamic video. It soon became clear ... (more)
