  • Federal Judges Get a Taste of 'Judge Moore' Justice on Marriage

    by Tony Perkins

    January 28, 2015: Federal judges may have the last word on marriage -- but they won't have the final one. That's becoming abundantly clear in Alabama, the latest state to feel the sting of a runaway court invalidating the will of the people on marriage. In a letter to Governor Robert Bentley (R-Ala.), Chief Justice Roy Moore made that quite clear -- explaining that this isn't an issue that the federal courts will resolve. Rather, he said, it "raises serious, legitimate concerns about the propriety of federal court jurisdiction over the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment."

  • New York Times Editorial Board: Better Luck Next 'Times' When Attacking Christian Messages

    by Tony Perkins

    January 14, 2015: Apparently, The New York Times is in favor of faith in the public square -- if the purpose is to mock it. Editors at the Times poured gasoline on the fire of Atlanta's latest controversy with an editorial that should shock even their most liberal readers. Just when you thought the media couldn't sink any lower, the Times takes on the same First Amendment that gives it the freedom to print these vicious attacks on Christians.

  • The Altar Not Ours to Alter

    by Tony Perkins

    November 20, 2014: "This Marriage is not ours to alter. It is ours, however, to encourage and celebrate...this we affirm." These were the final words recited from a new affirmation on marriage at the conclusion of the three-day conference of international religious leaders at the Vatican on the complementarity of man and woman. The atmosphere was almost euphoric as the attendees from six of the world's seven continents broke from the historic gathering to return to their respective nations renewed in their stand for marriage.

  • Sikh and Ye Shall Find... Marriage Allies!

    by Tony Perkins

    November 19, 2014: Today, the Vatican's colloquium on the complementarity of man and woman in marriage moved from laying a theoretical groundwork to take on the tone of a half-time locker room pep talk for those advancing the cause of natural marriage. In message after message today, from Sikh, Muslim, Mormon, and others (including American evangelicals Rick Warren and Russell Moore), there was a clarion call to renew the effort to uphold marriage as God intended it to be.

  • In Ancient Rome, Pope Affirms Ancient Truths

    by Tony Perkins

    November 18, 2014: Pope Francis began the gathering of international religious leaders this morning with a clear message that marriage and family are in trouble in large part because some are yielding the truth to trends. "In our day," he said to the gathering of international religious and cultural leaders, "marriage and the family are in crisis. We now live in a culture of the temporary, in which more and more people are simply giving up on marriage as a public commitment."

  • I Stand Sunday: Pastors Stand Strong In Face of Houston Mayor's 'Personal' Agenda

    by Tony Perkins

    November 03, 2014: Houston Mayor Annise Parker's original demand that five Houston pastors turn over their sermons and communications under the threat of fines and/or incarceration created a First Amendment firestorm. She's now withdrawn her demand. However, given the history of Parker's tenure as mayor, it's clear this was never about sermons or speeches -- or even about biblical teaching on human sexuality -- it was about political intimidation.

  • 'Stunned' in Houston: Pastors Vow to Fight Mayor's Sermon Grab

    by Tony Perkins

    October 16, 2014: Houston is home to one of NASA's most sophisticated space centers -- but even it would have trouble finding signs of intelligence in the local Mayor's office. The city's highest official is blowing past the First Amendment at warp speed -- and lighting a political powder keg in the process.

  • The Face of Freedom Shines at Values Voter Summit

    by Tony Perkins

    October 03, 2014: With those six words, a 27 year-old Sudanese mother opened her address to the audience of the 2014 Values Voter Summit Saturday night. It was only four short months ago that a shackled Mariam Ibraheem gave birth to a baby girl in a disease-ridden Khartoum prison as she faced a death sentence -- all because she refused to renounce her faith in Christ.

  • A choice for the people, not judicial tyrants

    by Tony Perkins

    September 22, 2014: Decrying what he deemed a "pageant of empathy" in emotionally driven rulings nationwide, this month a federal district court judge from our home state of Louisiana issued a ruling upholding our state's marriage law. Notably, Judge Martin Feldman's decision represents the first federal court opinion to uphold a state marriage law since the Supreme Court's ruling in United States v. Windsor in June 2103, that struck down the portion of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman for all purposes under federal law.
