Support Three New State Reps Who Support Life!

Thanks to a super-majority of left-wing lawmakers, Illinois “boasts” some of the most egregious abortion laws in our nation.

On Tuesday, May 28th, the Illinois House voted 64-50 to pass SB 25 — an abhorrent bill creating a fundamental “right” to abortion throughout all 9 months of pregnancy. Three days later, the Illinois State Senate voted 34-20 to pass it as well. This past Wednesday, Gov.… Continue Reading

Yes, Let’s Talk About Religion and Politics!

Pastor James Pittman Jr.

The 101st Illinois General Assembly has adjourned and the results are in. The state of Illinois is a moral disaster and about to get worse. Our lawmakers seem to be doing everything in their power to encourage and facilitate evil and debauchery.  This legislation has the full support of Governor JB Pritzker, and further institutionalizes lying, vice, addictions, greed, corruption and bloodshed.

However, if we conservative Christians are honest with ourselves, we cannot simply place all the blame on our lawmakers.  … Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Until It Affects You

Written by Benjamin Smith

In light of Governor JB Pritzker’s avowed priority to legalize “recreational” marijuana in Illinois, this week’s Spotlight podcast is definitely worth listening to as well as sharing with family and friends – especially anyone who might be on the fence about the subject of legalization.

Paul Simon Institute Polls Satisfy Everyone but Illinois Citizens

Written by Pat Hickey

The Chicago Tribune writes that “The (Paul Simon Institute) survey found Bruce Rauner, the first-term governor, leading his Republican challenger, three-term state Rep. Jeanne Ives of Wheaton, 51 percent to 31 percent, with 18 percent undecided or favoring someone else.”

Before Ives’ supporters allow defeatism to creep in, here’s a word on polling from the American Association of Public Opinion Research: “[E]ven the best public opinion poll is only a snapshot of public opinion at the particular moment in time, not an eternal truth.”

The Paul Simon Institute (PSI) has trotted out percentages and pie-charts that proved Illinois could not wait for civil unions, or to redefine marriage, and really needs to score some legal weed, ASAP.… Continue Reading

Illinois Is Already Stuck on Stupid and Doesn’t Need Dopey

Written by Pat Hickey

Polls–you know ‘scientifically conducted’ data collection, organization and dissemination that agrees most heartily with the conclusions crafted prior to research collected, organized and disseminated–have given Illinois its lofty position on what has been designated the “Right Side of History.”

The same such research sent people to the ovens in the last century and slaughtered millions of unborn American humans since 1973.

Illinois, the biggest laughing stock real estate on the continent, is usually on the “Right Side of History,” but people and businesses move away or avoid Illinois altogether.… Continue Reading
