religious freedom

A piece of cake for the Supreme Court

Editors, Washington Examiner

If the Supreme Court decides in favor of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, it will buttress state power at the expense of the Bill of Rights. It would endorse coercion to force people to pretend to believe what they understand to be false. This would shatter the First Amendment. It would institutionalize a violent struggle, which cannot end, in which might decides what is right, in which the powerful can use the law to subjugate the weak.

Will Supreme Court Uphold Slavery Of Christians?

Yesterday the Supreme Court heard the case of Christian baker Jack Philips and Masterpiece Cakeshop who refused to participate in a same-sex wedding. To force someone to do labor against their will is the very definition of slavery and that is what the radical homosexual lobby has been using courts across America to do.

Two wins for Trump

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

The Supreme Court’s two rulings mark a welcome setback to the open borders crowd and those secular progressives who view the expression of any religious view in the public square the way a vampire views a cross. It has been a curiosity of mine that some people believe using God’s name as a curse word is speech protected by the Constitution, while claiming the opposite when it comes to speaking well of the Deity at a commencement ceremony.

Can We All Get Along?

William Murchison, The American Spectator

“Can we all get along?” Apparently not. The duty of the day  the political duty  is to punish critics and the dissimilarly minded. Some just plain don’t want to “get along,” lest amenability to free speech and spacious tolerance of others call into question their political sincerity. What would it take to fix this troubled America of ours? About a million fewer politicians is a goal to get us started.

Supreme Court Will Take Up Christian Baker's Refusal to Serve a Gay Wedding

Tyler O'Neil, PJ Media

States like Mississippi and Alabama are pioneering the way to navigate these complex religious freedom issues, and this fall, the Supreme Court will weigh in on the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop. Religious freedom is in the balance, and with Justice Neil Gorsuch, the court leans to the Right. There is reason to hope that the First Amendment will win the day.

Religious Discrimination Case Goes to SCOTUS: Will Religious Nonprofits Be Treated Fairly?

James Gottry, CNS News

The U.S. Supreme Court will decide what to do about a small playground at a small church in a small Missouri city. Missouri officials should have embraced a spirit of fair play and enabled playgrounds to bring the community together. Here’s hoping the Supreme Court shows everyone the beauty of the playground.

Trump Mute on Moral Issues

Bill Donohue, CNS News

The problem with Trump's speech is that it only spoke about missiles and markets, never citing morality. This is popular with many Republicans, whose only goals are making money and protecting national security. But without demonstrating a concern for the moral order, the two "M's" of missiles and markets are an insufficient condition of the good society: the third "M," morality, must be added if success is to be achieved.

Conservatives Urge President Trump To Act To Protect Religious Freedom

Saying “Naming the problem is the first step toward addressing it” the letter commended President Trump for identifying the threat, however, the letter also called attention to the ongoing threats to religious liberty that can only be reversed by Presidential action.

Only One Thing Missing From President Trump’s Speech Before Congress

While churlish Democrats are still grieving over the lost election and trying to make phony charges of Russian hacking into a special prosecutor-worthy scandal, President Trump boldly and eloquently called Americans to think about the future.

The Biggest Trend During Obama’s Presidency

Draining the Cultural Swamp in our Children’s Minds

Placing government in its proper perspective and teaching our children why property and freedom are inseparable, are the first steps in clearing their minds of the cultural swamp.

God, Classrooms and Property Rights

When the Founders proclaimed that our rights came from our Creator, no future president or governing body could ever change, or rescind them, because they did not render them. This act ensured that our property rights were free from seizure... if we paid attention.

Trump Will Be Religion-Friendly

Bill Donohue, CNS News

President Ronald Reagan was not known to be a particularly religious man, yet he was one of the most religion-friendly presidents we've had in recent memory. All indications are that Trump will be more like Reagan, which is a good omen. When he is attacked for standing up for religious liberty—and he will be—it will be up to us to defend him. We plan to do so with vigor.

Dr. James Dobson: “Why I’m Voting For Donald Trump”

“I have decided to endorse Donald J. Trump for President of the United States, not only because of my great concern about Hillary Clinton. I am supporting Mr. Trump primarily because I believe he is the most capable candidate to lead the United States of America in this complicated hour."

To Regain Conservative Trust Mike Pence Must Rediscover The Courage He Once Had

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Donald Trump could do a lot worse than Mike Pence as his running mate. However, if he expects that the selection of Pence will close the deal with conservatives he is sadly mistaken, because Pence has shown that he lacks one of Trump’s most admirable qualities; the willingness to fight for what he believes in.

Conservatives: We Need To Fight And Win The Election We Have

Some of our conservative friends can’t seem to stop wishing for the election they want, instead of concentrating on winning the election they have. However, despite this lack of ability to focus on winning, the tools to win are actually there, in a way they haven’t been available to Republicans in the past several presidential election cycles.

Behold the wood of the Cross…

Where is the pushback on Mrs. Clinton’s publicly announced plan that, if elected, she will lead her administration in a war on Christianity and Christian practices? The deafening silence from religious leaders is indicative of a problem we face throughout today’s body politic, and especially in the conservative movement, and that is a lack of moral courage in the face of pressure from those who seek to destroy our culture, the rule of law, and our liberty.

The Establishment Media Misses The Real Message In Cruz’s Iowa Victory

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Ted Cruz’s victory in the Iowa Caucuses blew the Republican establishment's idea of a pause or truce in the battle for the culture right out of the sky. Cruz’s unabashed appeal to faith-first voters, his vast support among politically active conservative Christians and Jews, and his deep personal faith guarantee that the cultural issues will not be off the table this campaign.

Bradford Richardson, The Hill

More Americans say it’s important to defend the religious liberties of Christians than Muslims, according to an AP/NORC poll released Wednesday. The preference for the rights of Christians over Muslims held across party lines.
