freedom of religion
#NeverTrumpers seem to forget that Clinton’s hostility toward the First Amendment could be put into practice by her appointments not only to the Supreme Court, but also to the Internal Revenue Service, Federal Communications Commission, and the Justice Department. The appointees would follow a heavily partisan course, prosecuting Clinton’s Republican and conservative opponents and making the #NeverTrumpers’ dream of a post-Trump rebuilding of the Republican Party with them in charge unlikely if not impossible.
Those looking to explain Donald Trump’s populist support and the rise of the #AltRight need look no further than the firing of Diane Amoratis and the disinvitation of Lou Holtz to understand the outrage at the double of standard of what constitutes “hate” and the legitimate feeling of ordinary Americans that they are being marginalized in their own country.
The Obama admin. is failing to wage ideological war against ISIS terrorists over fears that attacking its religious philosophy will violate the constitutional divide between church and state.
The Satanic Temple has announced that it will provide pamphlets on Satanism to students in Orange County, Florida, in response to a school board decision that allows for religious materials to be disseminated in public schools.
“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson has a cure for the GOP. “You want to turn the Republican party around, get godly,” Robertson told the Republican Leadership Conference on Thursday.
A satanic black mass that was scheduled to take place at Harvard Univ. was finally cancelled. The black mass makes a mockery of Christianity and the Catholic Mass and its celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Standing firmly on conviction and not tolerating the culture’s war on Christianity can have a positive result.
"The issue of religious liberty has come to the forefront and it’s important that we understand this is not merely the 'freedom to worship.' Individuals should be free to work, speak, and serve according to their deeply held beliefs throughout their lives."
A battle will soon be held in Okla. over a statue of Satan that the Satanic Temple, backed by the ACLU, wants to erect near the Ten Commandments monument on the Statehouse lawn. Repub. Gov. Mary Fallin said that the Satanic statue will never be erected.
Christians in the U.S. military are being told they must forfeit their First Amendment rights.
What we are seeing in Arizona in microcosm is what we have witnessed in America for half a century: the growing intolerance of those who preach tolerance and the corruption of the concept of civil rights.
In the name of tolerance, liberal activists believe that if you do not worship at the altar of gay marriage, your business must be shut down — you must be punished. Sadly, they are also winning in court and that's why Arizona's SB 1062 must be signed into law.
To: Arizona Governor Jan Brewer
To force someone to do labor against their will is the very definition of slavery and that is nothing less than what the radical homosexual lobby and their secular liberal allies have been using courts across America to do. Arizona's SB 1062 is needed o protect believers from this judge-imposed slavery. Sign and share the petition to urge Gov. Brewer to support the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, SB 1062.
Obama has made it clear that he doesn't want any expression of religious faith in any public place, including buildings or schools or events. When the Founding Fathers wrote "free exercise" of religion into the Constitution, they meant public as well as private exercise.
To George Washington freedom of conscience and religion were natural rights and one of the great achievements of the American Revolution was "no more that toleration is spoken of as if it were the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights..."
Our friends at the Manhattan Declaration and "I am Second" remind us that we are all Phil Robertsons, because if you make the commitment to put God above all else, you have also made the commitment to stand firm in your convictions, no matter the cost. Click here to sign and share our petition and let them know you stand with Phil Robertson.
The forces are gathering for a final push to declare all expressions of Christian conscience to be “irrational” and to prohibit any overt Christian influence in public policy and in culture. Christian believers must understand that this is no longer a polite political debate, this is war.
As Ted Cruz said, “The reason that so many Americans love "Duck Dynasty" is because it represents the America usually ignored or mocked by liberal elites: a family that loves and cares for each other, believes in God, and speaks openly about their faith.” You can stand with Phil Robertson, Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin by signing our petition demanding A&E reinstate Phil Robertson and end the censoring of his Christian witness.
Those who are inclined to take a live and let live attitude toward the same-sex marriage debate must understand that Phil Robertson is only the latest victim of a totalitarian movement in which any dissent, including that based upon Biblical teachings, is driven from the public discourse regarding homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Please sign our petition to A&E demanding that Phil Robertson be reinstated to his role in "Duck Dynasty."
SCOTUS will be asked to recognize and reject hostility to religious expression. Atheists and agnostics will assemble at the SCOTUS as arguments begin on the Town of Greece v. Galloway prayer case.
