U.S. Senate to Trump: Force Transgenders on Military

Written by Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD

“New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, and Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican, introduced a bipartisan amendment to protect transgender service members from President Trump’s plan to ban them from the military,” reports Time.

“The amendment introduced Monday would prohibit the Department of Defense from dismissing current transgender service members ‘solely on the basis of the member’s gender identity,’ Senators said in a statment.

“Any individual who wants to join our military and meets the standards should be allowed to serve, period.… Continue Reading

Monte Larrick recently interviewed Peter LaBarbera for this week’s Spotlight podcast. Peter is the founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, a Naperville-based organization that exposes and counters the radical LGBTQIA agenda.

Monte and Peter discuss the extreme agenda to promote gender dysphoria and President Trump’s military transgender ban.… Continue Reading

The Terrifying Changes Britain has Seen Since Instituting Same-Sex “Marriage”

Written by Joshua Denton

Roughly four years ago, then Prime Minister David Cameron announced that MP’s would decide whether or not to redefine the meaning of marriage. The announcement came as somewhat of a surprise as David Cameron had not made any mention whatsoever in his pre-election manifesto (or platform) signalling his intention to initiate this possible shift.

In the ensuing chaos leading up to the vote, David Burrows MP, a mild-mannered supporter of the ‘Coalition for Marriage’, had excrement thrown at his house.… Continue Reading

Higgins Responds to Reader’s Concerns

Written by David E. Smith

I recently asked Laurie Higgins, the cultural affairs writer for the Illinois Family Institute, to join me in a podcast. In this episode of Illinois Family Spotlight, we discuss Laurie’s satirical, sarcastic and sassy style of writing, which makes some people uncomfortable. Unfortunately, there are even some who go so far as to say that it is unbiblical or not Christ-like. I understand where this is coming from, but I think it is often misapplied or too often used as an excuse to remain silent.… Continue Reading

CNN’s Hate Group List Smears Some Great Organizations

Written by Tom Gilson

CNN has just published a map and listing of “all the active hate groups where you live.” I’ve got serious problems with lists like this, but apparently CNN doesn’t. It seems to me that if they believe in “hate group” lists, they really ought to include themselves on it.

A list like this one, published days after Charlottesville, is, in theory, meant to warn Americans against groups that might carry similar violence into other cities.… Continue Reading

Church Pastor Refuses to Compromise; His Critics Ignore 2,000-year-old Doctrine

Written by John Biver

“What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.”
~Ecclesiastes 1:9

A person might be tempted to think that “news stories” contain things that are “new.”

Here is reporter Mike Rowe at WGN news in Chicago:

Demonstrators flocked to one of the South Side’s largest churches Sunday morning after its pastor removed a woman from the congregation because of her same-sex wedding.

SPOTLIGHT: They’re as Good at Math as They are at Biology

Written by Benjamin Smith

In this week’s Spotlight podcast, Monte and Dave talk with IFI lobbyist Ralph Rivera and Special Project Coordinator John Biver about a bill to advance and enable gender confusion in the state of Illinois. Sponsored by State Representative Greg Harris (D-Chicago), HB 1785 would allow gender-dysphoric persons to falsify their birth certificates, which are both legal and historical documents.

This will have consequences with regard to the relentless cultural assault on physical privacy through the sexual integration of previously sex-segregated spaces.… Continue Reading

Why Democrats Are More Unified Than the GOP

By Paul Gottfried 

Thanks to at least nine opposing Republican senators, Congress left for its July 4 break without passing a replacement bill for Obamacare.

The opposition from these Republicans was two-fold: Four conservatives thought the GOP bill on the table went too far in retaining government control over the medical insurance market, while five centrist members complained it doesn’t go far enough in providing federal funding for Medicaid in their states, and would leave 22 million Americans overall without medical insurance.Continue Reading

What is Going On at the Federal Department of Education?

Written by Laurie Higgins

Betsy DeVos was a controversial pick to head up the controversial Department of Education. This week conservatives were provided with more reason to find fault with DeVos.

The Washington Post revealed an internal memo sent on June 6, 2017 from Candice Jackson to regional directors of the Department of Education with “instructions” regarding “transgender students.” While acknowledging that President Trump has rescinded the Obama “guidance” that threatened loss of funding to schools if they didn’t sexually integrate restrooms and locker rooms, Jackson reaffirmed that schools should look to Title IX regulations, court decisions, and an Office for Civil Rights “guidance” document for direction.… Continue Reading
