Religious Freedom Is About Human Dignity

A recent Wall Street Journal article brings together Robert George, a conservative legal scholar (and huge intellect) who teaches at Princeton University, and Katrina Lantos Swett, a mother of seven and an “educator and political candidate” based on her bio.  It is a very thoughtful piece and puts forth I think some profound principles as to why religious liberty is so […]

Practice Religious Liberty and Go To Church

As we all wonder what is happening to our Constitution as the Obama Administration has taken upon itself to be the conscience of the America people instead of letting people make decisions for themselves (social welfare instead of individual charity, government-enforced contraception mandate vs. running your business based on your own religious beliefs), I think […]

Traditional Marriage Takes A Hit As Supreme Court Rules On DOMA, Proposition 8

Traditional marriage, marriage defined as a union between a man and a woman, took a major hit as the Supreme Court Justices handed down two rulings today on DOMA and Proposition 8.

The Church has a century-long relationship with the BSA and how they voted […]

Conservatives Should Not Sacrifice Values

I’m having an amusing time watching pundits across the media-sphere blame conservative values for the Romney loss.  They say that conservative values have clearly been shown to be unpopular and the GOP should not stand by these values anymore.  What is interesting is what Rush pointed out today on his show so well – if the Dems […]

Obama Attacks Religious Freedoms Forcing Employers To Provide Contraceptives

While Chick-Fil-A Appreciation day was a clear success, let’s not overlook the beating religious values took today as Obama and his administration are forcing businesses to provide birth control and abortion-inducing drugs in their insurance plans. This day — August 1 — is a dark one for religious freedom in the United States. The Obama […]
