On Monday’s edition of “Washington Watch with Tony Perkins” FRC’s Senior Fellow for Policy Studies, Peter Sprigg, joins Tony to discuss the attempts by the media to portray 2016 Presidential hopefuls in an unflattering light for their continued support of natural marriage. Also, former Pennsylvania Senator and Presidential candidate, Rick Santorum, is here with analysis on Boko Haram’s adoption of the ISIS terrorist group’s practice of killing of Christians abroad. This immediately puts 70 million Nigerian Christians at risk.

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)

Stand For Marriage Sunday: Religious Freedom at Risk

On April 28, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for and against redefining marriage in America. Though marriage between a man and a woman has existed since the beginning and is the cornerstone of ordered society, the time-honored institution is serious trouble. Before federal judges began to overturn marriage laws, 30 states had protected natural marriage in their Constitutions. Now the High Court is poised to decide for us all. It is time for our voices to be heard in the Courts of Heaven and the Courts of Public Opinion.

On Sunday April 26th, we encourage our entire network of Watchmen pastors and their millions of church members to view a brief video, distribute the Bulletin Insert, and then spend time during worship in focused prayer for the Court and our Country.

Abortion and Trafficking: What Would Lincoln Have Done?

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Townhall.com on April 16, 2015. Whenever I read such things as “Why the Founding Fathers Wouldn’t Have Been Anti-Vaxxers,” I cringe a bit. Not only are these rather desperate speculations, but they are supercilious: We know the things the Founders were for and against, and to infer from their stated convictions and known actions their allegiance to or antipathy toward a contemporary political issue trivializes these remarkable ...

Society Cannot Escape Negative Outcomes of Marriage's Decline

by Pat Fagan

Dr. Pat Fagan is Director and Senior Fellow of MARRI at Family Research Council. This article appeared in CNS News on April 16, 2015. CNN journalist Carol Costello recently interviewed Kent State University students about marriage. While the (heterosexual) students, both male and female, all looked forward to getting married, the interview highlighted their limited understanding on the impact marriage has on their own lives and on society. Thus, despite their own intentions, they seemed unsure of its importance for the future of children ... (more)

Why Do We Need Louisiana's Marriage and Conscience Act? Ask Indiana Pizza Shop Owners.

by Travis Weber

Travis Weber is Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Daily Signal on April 13, 2015. Recent nationwide polling shows that 81 percent of Americans agree that the government should leave people free to live and work in accordance with their belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. Nevertheless, such people are increasingly being ostracized, fired and facing death threats simply because of such beliefs. All of this makes protection of their individual rights and ... (more)
