    Roberts' Rules of Disorder
    February 05, 2016

    Chief Justice John Roberts said he isn't bothered "at all" by the criticism of the Supreme Court -- which is good, because there's plenty of it. Heading into the 2015-16 term, public disapproval of the Court had never been higher. And with a stack of social issues before the bench this spring, last year's numbers may look good come June. Religious liberty, ObamaCare mandates, and abortion ... (more)


    Minding Euro Business
    February 05, 2016

    In years past the United States was known for leading, not following. Unfortunately, that's the position the Obama administration has put us in after months of ignoring the most sweeping attacks on people of faith in a generation. While ISIS burns its way through the Middle East, major world powers have condemned the acts as "genocide" -- including, most recently, the European Parliament. ... (more)

With a compassion he rarely demonstrates for the Christian faith, the president stunned plenty by spending the ... (more)


    Atheists Push the Envelope at Kans. Post Office
    February 04, 2016

    If the Freedom from Religion Foundation didn't like one "God Bless America" sign, then 1,500 must have really made its blood boil! That's how many the small town of Pittsburg, Kansas posted on lawns, car windows, and in businesses after the anti-Christian bullies forced the local post office to tear down its 9/11 banner. After standing for more than 14 years, the building sign was a casualty of ... (more)


    Brief, Case: Congress, FRC Weighs in On Texas Law
    February 04, 2016

    While the Left talks about protecting women, Texas actually did! A few years ago, thanks to the pro-life leadership in the state legislature, the Lone Star state passed a commonsense measure that puts women's safety ahead of the clinics' bottom lines. There's just one problem -- the courts stopped it from taking effect. Texas's plans are on hold, as judges stick their nose in the state's ... (more)
