The recently introduced, “Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act of 2014” already has created a stir. Aimed at prohibiting federal and state government from discriminating against child welfare service providers on the basis of sincerely held religious beliefs, at least one organization already labeled this bill “homophobic.”
To be fair, although the word “marriage” isn’t written anywhere in the bill, it is undeniable that in today’s culture, sincerely held religious beliefs and marriage policy overlap, in part. Having said this, labeling this bill as “homophobic” is a gross mischaracterization... > Read More
On July 9th, more than forty senate Democrats introduced a bill to force corporations to pay for all forms of women's contraception. It was called the “Protect Women's Health From Corporate Interference Act.” This bill died quickly, and won't be coming up for a vote, but the Democrats will try to force companies to pay for contraception again. We need to understand why... > Read More
Pro-Life colleagues and friends are quickly applauding the unanimous decision from the United States Supreme Court in McCullen v. Coakley,
which struck down the Massachusetts buffer zone law. The decision allows McCullen and other sidewalk counselors in Massachusetts to continue counseling women on the threshold of abortion clinics. The decision rightly concludes that this buffer zone law is unconstitutional... > Read More
When the Supreme Court announced its decision in Town of Greece v. Galloway, conservatives celebrated. After a 5-4 decision that rejected the view that legislative prayer must be nonsectarian, the celebration that ensued was really no surprise. To a large degree, because this decision restores certain religious liberty rights and will have far-reaching implications, it was warranted. However, in an attempt to protect religious freedom, the majority opinion, authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, reveals a fundamental misunderstanding of prayer... > Read More
Recently, Representative Randy Weber introduced the “State Marriage Defense Act of 2014.” Shortly thereafter, Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz introduced its companion bill in the United States Senate. The bill is simple. In short, it states that for the purposes of federal benefits, federal agencies will determine whether a marriage qualifies for federal benefits based upon the domicile of the person filing for marriage benefits, not the state in which the marriage ceremony was celebrated... > Read More
Tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving. For most of us, Thanksgiving is a time for family to gather around the dinner table, reflect on what we are personally thankful for, take a nap because we ate too much, map out a plan for Black Friday, and to watch football. Unfortunately, as a nation, we have largely lost the purpose behind Thanksgiving... > Read More
Over the past couple of weeks it has become nearly impossible to go anywhere or watch or read any news without encountering talk of the government shutdown. People from all walks of life and differing worldviews lament the fact that the members of the federal government have struggled so mightily to find a way to settle their differences for the good of the nation... > Read More
College football season is here. Can you believe it? For many, the last two weekends marked the start of a “religious experience.” Tailgating, watching College GameDay, and talking about how much everyone hates the BCS, all become the Saturday ritual. I, like many, rarely will miss a Saturday... > Read More
Few things on television are actually worth watching these days. Even channels that are supposed to be “family friendly” are throwing morality to the curb. Last night I stayed up late to watch the Season 4 premiere of Duck Dynasty. If you have not seen Duck Dynasty yet, you are in the minority. Season 3 of Duck Dynasty averaged 8.4 million viewers and I suspect Season 4 will be even more successful... > Read More
I recently watched one of my favorite movies, Hoosiers. I love this movie for many reasons, but largely because it represents basketball in its purest form – no scouts, no television cameras, no team sponsors, no money – just a team playing for the name on the front of its jersey. Loosely based on a true story, Hoosiers depicts a small-town high school that beats all odds to win the Indiana boys’ basketball state championship... > Read More
