Trump Takes The Viguerie Path To Victory

Republicans never, ever win the presidency unless they nationalize the election by campaigning on a conservative agenda— drawing a sharp contrast between the Democrat worldview and the conservative worldview. And judging by this week’s convention, and President Trump’s acceptance speech, that contrast is going to be sharply drawn – there will be no pale pastels in the 2020 Trump campaign.

How To End The Republican National Convention With A Bang

Respecting religious liberty and protecting institutions from the encroachment of overweening secular authorities are central tenets of today’s Republican Party. Renewing that commitment with an Executive Order declaring religious assemblies to be “essential activities” would not only be the right thing to do in the face of religious discrimination from Democrat Governors and Mayors, it would send a message that would carry straight through to Election Day.

Dr. James Dobson: America's Civil Wars - Then And Now (Part 3 of 3)

In the final part of this 3 part series Dr. Dobson says, "I plead with you to register and vote in this presidential election. I won't try to tell you who to vote for because you can figure it out for yourselves. But I will suggest how you might evaluate the situation we face. I'll close with seven critical issues that have stunning significance for the nation. Please think hard about them, and then go to the polls."

Dr. James Dobson: America's Civil Wars - Then And Now (Part 2 of 3)

During the revolution of the 1960s, I recall a ubiquitous bumper sticker that read, "What if they gave a war and nobody came?" It was a catchy phrase that made sense to those who opposed the Vietnam War. But my reaction to it then and now is "What if they gave a war and only one side came?" That question keeps me awake at night because there are multiple millions of passive Americans out there today, many of them Christians, who are clueless about what is happening to their homeland.

Judge Slaps Down de Blasio And Cuomo Restrictions On Religious Liberty

America’s worst mayor, New York’s Bill de Blasio, and America’s most hypocritical governor, New York’s Andrew Cuomo, got a spanking from Judge Gary Sharpe sitting in the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York, which recently  granted a group of religious plaintiffs a preliminary injunction enjoining de Blasio, Cuomo and their vile minions from prohibiting certain religious gatherings.

Religious Liberty: Trump DOJ Defends Catholic School in State Court

J. Christian Adams, PJ Media

Unlike Eric Holder’s DOJ, the Trump administration is on the forefront of defending First Amendment religious liberty. This Tuesday, Justice Department Civil Rights Division lawyers will be appearing in an Indiana state court to defend the religious freedom of Catholic schools. Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband's team will personally appear to defend the Archdiocese of Indianapolis against an employment discrimination lawsuit brought by a teacher who was fired for openly flouting Catholic Church teaching on marriage. The Trump administration is coming to the defense of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis in stark contrast to the approach toward religious liberty of the Obama administration.

Contrast Between Trump’s SOTU Speech And Pelosi Tantrum A Perfect Political Metaphor

The philosophical and rhetorical elements of President Donald Trump’s 2020 State of the Union place this speech among the best of his public life. And, the contrast between President Trump’s generous and optimistic address and Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi tearing up the speech in a rage provided a perfect metaphor for today’s politics.

Conservative Leaders: Congress Should Reject 'Fairness for All Act'

Under the Fairness for All Act, progressive views of sexual orientation and gender identity would be enshrined into law, removing the ability of any debate or disagreement in the public square. Though select religious institutions would get a special carve-out, ordinary Americans, including individuals, daycares, businesses, schools, and other institutions would see their First Amendment freedoms gutted.

Bloomberg Is No ‘Moderate’ On Abortion, Religious Liberty And Guns

We urge our conservative friends to keep an eye open for Bloomberg appearances, especially in the early Democrat primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina and to make a point of reminding voters that on guns, religious liberty and abortion Michael Bloomberg is not a “moderate” but an existential threat to constitutional liberty.

Why Sunday, November 3rd Matters

November 3 is International Day of Prayer for Persecuted Church. We should not just pray for those Christians elsewhere in the world, but for the persecuted church in America. For centuries America has been a beacon of religious liberty. Her lighthouse is now under assault.

Big Win For Religious Liberty: Obama Abortion Mandate Loses In Court

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call United States Attorney General William Barr’s comment line (202-353-1555) to urge the Attorney General not to appeal Judge Hovland’s ruling in the Christian Employers Alliance case and to extend this decision nationwide to protect the religious liberty of all pro-life employers.

Humorless Liberals Pan Trump Appearance At Faith And Freedom Coalition

Democrats are increasingly hostile to pro-life Americans, supporting abortion and infanticide and doing their upmost to drive Christian believers from the public square. And joking about the Johnson Amendment aside, that’s the bedrock reason for Donald Trump’s popularity among Evangelicals that no Democrat has a prayer to change.

SCOTUS Renders Sort Of Victory For Religious Liberty

The Supreme Court on Monday lifted an order punishing a Christian baker in Oregon who refused to produce a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, telling a lower court to reconsider the dispute in light of the 2018 Masterpiece Cakeshop decision, but the SCOTUS failed to address the larger constitutional issues raised in the case. The case is No. 18-547 Klein v. Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries.

Nominees Hostile to Religious Liberty Have No Place on the Federal Bench

Sen. Josh Hawley, National Review

Tens of millions of Americans believe what the Tennes family believes about marriage, including Catholics, Jews, Mormons, Muslims, Protestants, and more. We are in a moment in history when the basic human liberty of these citizens to live, work, and otherwise participate in public life is threatened by those who view their beliefs as toxic and unacceptable. The right to religious free exercise enshrined in the First Amendment is the fundamental freedom, and we need judges who will uphold it. Michael Bogren’s answers are not acceptable for a judicial nominee. We can and must do better.

Stop The Nomination of Far Left Attorney Michael Bogren For Federal District Judge

Please call Senator Josh Hawley’s office (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to thank him for standing for religious liberty and to urge him to put an indefinite hold on the Michael Bogren nomination.

The Dawn Of Corporate Totalitarianism

While constitutional liberty should protect the rights of association and religious liberty, granting businesses the right to determine who they will serve based on the customer’s ideas, political affiliation or viewpoint is the first step toward replacing constitutional liberty with an oppressive system of corporate social credit.

Google Discrimination Against Conservatives No Longer A ‘Myth’

“You can’t trust the human judgment of Google’s Trust and Safety team,” said a source at Google. If that didn’t come through loud and clear from Google internal memos, the plain words of Google employees confirms it and will send a chill down the spine of every person in any country who values the principles of free expression, religious liberty and freedom of association.

Leftist Judges Are Creating A Pre-Civil War America

The Supreme Court’s infamous Dred Scott decision authored by Democrat Chief Justice Roger B. Taney was the ultimate expression of the long-held Democrat Party belief that state officials elected as Democrats have the right to impose their will and their laws on the residents of other states.
