religious freedom

The Atheists v. Bill Barr

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

To Mr. Barr, American government relies upon citizens with strong Judeo-Christian beliefs that would allow them to be self-governing. “This is really what was meant by ‘self-government.’ In short, in the Framers’ view, free government was only suitable and sustainable for a religious people — a people who recognized that there was a transcendent moral order antecedent to both the state and man-made law and who had the discipline to control themselves according to those enduring principles.” Unfortunately, such asseverations rile up the disbelievers. They want to move against the believers and have been amazingly successful in moving against them.

William Barr's right about left's designs on religious freedom

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The infidels and infantiles who are running higher education today must be confronted with more than just laughter and dismissal. They are, after all, the ones destroying America by poisoning the minds of children. It is also why so many boars in the media took such offense to the speech and began squealing like a herd of mad swine racing for the lake. It leads political monsters to create untamable leviathans like Obamacare, which forces the Little Sisters of the Poor to violate their most precious religious convictions. Is it any surprise, then, to see citizens turn on one another with the same evil lust?

What In Heaven’s Name Goes On?

William Murchison, The American Spectator

Beto seems to believe political institutions in a land of liberty need no counsel about notions unsubjected to inspection by the Supreme Court or Congress. A President O’Rourke, if we were to have one, could doubtless carry on just fine without spiritual analyses. Maybe he could, the nation having undergone vast changes in the past half-century or so: no prayers in schools, no constraints against the taking of unborn life, no preferences for moral teachings knocked down by the courts and disfavored by the media. A lively question is: Does Beto know modern America better than modern America knows itself? Perhaps we’ll find out soon.

Transforming Virginia Into California “IN TWO AFTERNOONS”

Far Left groups are investing millions of dollars to turn Virginia blue this November. If Democrats can pick up just one or two more seats in the Virginia legislature there will be almost nothing that can stop them from ramming through every radical policy to further diminish the sanctity of life, marriage, the family, and religious freedom.

Big Business Goes Anti-Family

There was a time when businesses, especially America’s major corporate employers, encouraged family life. Fast forward to 2019 and a new era of what we call corporate fascism, where, as Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said in recent speech, politically correct CEOs apparently think babies are "bad for business.”

Fr. Frank Pavone: President Trump is 'The Most Pro-Life President We Have Ever Had'

As Fr. Pavone recently wrote, let’s re-launch our own efforts to educate and mobilize the pro-life vote. Let’s expose the extremism of the Democrat platform and policies on abortion, especially late-term abortion and even infanticide. Let’s make sure people in our movement are registered to vote and most importantly, let's pray for President Trump.

Bible Verses Now ‘Unsafe’ On Social Media

Our friend James O’Keefe and his team at Project Veritas have obtained a "Sensitive Terms List" from a Pinterest insider, which revealed the social media giant manipulates search results for "Bible verses," "Christian Easter," and other Christian terms. Project Veritas also reviewed their “porn domain block list” and was able to confirm that along with LiveAction.org, many other conservative websites were also listed as porn.

Massive Victory For Religious Freedom Over Obamacare Contraceptive Mandate

In a sweeping victory for religious freedom, that the media has refused to cover and Google has all but hidden from search results, a federal court in Texas permanently blocked the federal government from enforcing the Obamacare “Contraceptive Mandate” against any employer or individual who objects to the provision of contraception on religious grounds.

Disney And Netflix Embrace Corporate Fascism

We agree with Jim Daly, Tony Perkins and Shane Vander Hart – it’s time for a counter-boycott of Disney, Netflix and other media companies that work against the moral and religious choices of their customers and betray the interests of their shareholders in pursuit of Leftwing political causes.

Conservative Action Project: Conservatives Oppose Legislation that Undermines Women And People of Faith

Conservatives are united in strong opposition to the Democrat-sponsored “Equality Act” and the “Fairness for All Act.” The titles of these bills belie their consequences, which will undermine parental rights, and the pro-life and conscience rights of medical professionals, make environments inherently unfair, unequal, and unsafe for women and curtail religious freedom for both religious organizations and people of faith.

‘Committee on the Present Danger: China’ Launches

A team of America’s top national security thinkers, leaders, China experts, business leaders, human rights and religious freedom activists, and others has launched a new organization, The Committee on the Present Danger: China, (CPDC) to awaken Americans to the danger posed by the Chinese Communist Party and the country it misrules.

Save the Persecuted Christians Launches SaveUs Movement at National Press Club Jan. 17

The Center for the Study of Global Christianity estimates that between 2005 and 2015, 900,000 Christians were martyred. The goal of the SaveUs movement is to mobilize Americans to stand in the gap for the 215 million Christians worldwide experiencing brutal violence and abuse for their faith.

The High Court and Religious Freedom

William McGurn, Wall Street Journal

The more religious freedom, the better, I’m telling you. Such is the point that matters amid reverberations from the high court’s reversal of a Colorado Civil Rights Commission ukase green-lighting the punishment of baker Jack Phillips. No great American thinker has suggested that freedom of religion fixes everything. The contention that it fixes nothing — just stirs up bigots and hate-mongers — is among the craziest propositions on display anywhere.

Masterpiece Cake: Supreme Court Emancipates Christian Slave

After Masterpiece Cake, religious persons who have been persecuted by state and local enforcers of the Left’s anti-religious agenda now have the right to introduce evidence of bias and to obtain relief when a government’s demand for tolerance becomes merely a cover for the Far-Left to persecute those who wish to live according to Biblical principles.

Viguerie Joins 92 Conservative Leaders Backing Pompeo For Secretary Of State

CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie and 92 leaders of CAP have issued a statement backing Mike Pompeo for Secretary for State saying, "Pompeo’s vast experience across multiple levels of government has demonstrated his commitment to protecting America’s interests, and make him uniquely qualified to lead the State Department through complex and challenging times."

New Ear to the Ground Poll: Cultural Divide Deepens in First Year of Trump Presidency

We have an exclusive look at a new EarToTheGround.us poll conducted through the collaboration of ConservativeHQ.com and other individuals and organizations. The poll found Americans are deeply divided on the meaning of patriotism, the Constitution and how they viewed religion and prominent cultural brands and institutions.

A piece of cake for the Supreme Court

Editors, Washington Examiner

If the Supreme Court decides in favor of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, it will buttress state power at the expense of the Bill of Rights. It would endorse coercion to force people to pretend to believe what they understand to be false. This would shatter the First Amendment. It would institutionalize a violent struggle, which cannot end, in which might decides what is right, in which the powerful can use the law to subjugate the weak.

Will Supreme Court Uphold Slavery Of Christians?

Yesterday the Supreme Court heard the case of Christian baker Jack Philips and Masterpiece Cakeshop who refused to participate in a same-sex wedding. To force someone to do labor against their will is the very definition of slavery and that is what the radical homosexual lobby has been using courts across America to do.

Two wins for Trump

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

The Supreme Court’s two rulings mark a welcome setback to the open borders crowd and those secular progressives who view the expression of any religious view in the public square the way a vampire views a cross. It has been a curiosity of mine that some people believe using God’s name as a curse word is speech protected by the Constitution, while claiming the opposite when it comes to speaking well of the Deity at a commencement ceremony.
