Left Hellbent on Destroying Mom-And-Dad Families

Written by Robert Knight

Democrats, with help from feckless Republicans, have advanced the Orwellian-named Respect for Marriage Act. They’re trying to finish the job they began in the 1960s.

That’s when Lyndon Johnson launched the anti-marriage Great Society, whose welfare policies shattered the urban family and sentenced a major constituency to perpetual dependency. As President Biden says, “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote Democrat.

By destroying marriage and exiling black fathers, the party created an underclass that could be exploited indefinitely.… Continue Reading

Christmas Queens And The Oxymoronically Named Respect For Marriage Act

Written by Robert Knight

We’ve had a very serious setback this last week in the cause of freedom, courtesy of a dozen “woke” Republican senators. But first, we’ll begin with a bit of pop culture that speaks to where we are as a nation.

Sad to say, Mariah Carey won’t be able to trademark “Queen of Christmas.” Yes, in time, we will get over this.

The ubiquitous songbird, whose “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is piped everywhere, tried to monopolize the title legally.… Continue Reading

SCOTUS Unleashes the Left’s Outrage

Written by Robert Knight

You know it’s a good sign when President Joe Biden and lefty celebrities go bat crazy.

At a press conference in Spain, Mr. Biden trashed the U.S. Supreme Court as “destabilizing” because of its “outrageous” rulings on abortion and guns. He pledged to do an end-run on the U.S. Senate filibuster to pass a national abortion bill.

On June 24, a 6-3 court majority overturned Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.… Continue Reading

Franklin Graham Responds to Threats by Regressive Presidential Candidates

Written by Laurie Higgins

In a recent town hall meeting on sexual deviance co-hosted by the destructive Human Rights Campaign and only slightly less destructive CNN, the question of whether churches in which intrinsically non-marital homosexual “marriage” ceremonies are not allowed to be performed should lose their tax-exempt status was posed. Well, I paraphrased the question for precision and clarity.

With fervor and inauthenticity, one of the respondents declared “Yes!” Fearing the backlash, “progressives” everywhere began pedaling backwards with equal fervor and inauthenticity, declaring how preposterous a notion it is to think theologically orthodox churches would EVER lose their tax-exempt status.… Continue Reading

The Corruption of the GOP

Written by Laurie Higgins

In a recent appearance on The Journal Editorial Report, Republican economist Arthur Laffer (of “Laffer Curve” fame) unintentionally revealed the rot at the core of the GOP. In an astonishing statement, he waxed exultant at the prospects of Democrat Jared Polis winning the gubernatorial race in Colorado (which Polis did). Laffer is thrilled because Polis has the right economic plan. For those who don’t know, Polis is openly homosexual, “married” to a man, and supports every lousy pro-homosexual legislation that a sexual anarchist can conceive.… Continue Reading

Good Riddance to Justice Anthony Kennedy

Written by Taylor Lewis

The U.S. Supreme Court’s longest serving justice announced his retirement shortly after casting the deciding vote on a string of decisions that were seen as wins for the conservative side of the bench. Kennedy’s stepping down didn’t come as a surprise. There have long been rumors in Washington that he was considering hanging up his robe. With a Republican-controlled Congress and White House, the timing couldn’t be better, so as to ensure his seat would be filled with someone from the right side of the ideological spectrum.… Continue Reading

What Can Religious Liberty Movement Learn From Success of Pro-Lifers?

Written by Samuel Smith

As conservative Christians continue to push for religious freedom protections in the wake of the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage, there might be lessons religious freedom advocates can take away from the successes of the pro-life movement.

Two pro-life leaders and a religious liberty scholar participated in a panel discussion on Saturday titled “What the Religious Liberty Movement Can Learn From the Victories of the Pro-Life Movement” at the Family Research Council’s Values Voters Summit.… Continue Reading

How to Restore Our Constitutional Foundation

Written by E. Jeffrey Ludwig

By the end of World War II, the beautiful foundational ideas and ideals of our constitutional republic had already been significantly undermined by the Democratic Party. The two pillars of our constitutional republic, federalism and checks and balances among our three branches of government, were being disrupted and distorted. The distortions expressed by so-called progressivism had begun the transformation of our political and economic system, especially under Woodrow Wilson and the Democrat Party, and intensified under the policies and programs of the New Deal.… Continue Reading

GOP Calls on Trump to Honor Promise to Defend Religious Liberty

Written by Todd Starnes

In February President Donald Trump made a promise to people of faith across the fruited plain.

“My administration will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty in our land,” the president said at the National Prayer Breakfast.

When he campaigned for the White House he stated that the “first priority of my administration will be to preserve and protect our religiously liberty.”

“The First Amendment guarantees our right to practice our faith as we see fit…all the time, always, wherever,” he went on to say.… Continue Reading

A Big Victory for Marriage and Religious Liberty

Dear Friend of Marriage and Religious Liberty,

Senator Ted Cruz’s victory [last night] is a resounding affirmation by the Republican voters of Iowa of their determination to protect the institution of marriage against the onslaught being waged against it by cultural and judicial elites.

Iowans have said to the five U.S. Supreme Court justices who in the Obergefell decision sought to impose “same-sex marriage” on them and the people of every other state: This will not stand!… Continue Reading
