Traditional Marriage Fails To Get On Ballot In Indiana
Looks like a state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in Indiana won’t be on the ballot until 2016. Though I ask traditional conservatives this; what good by this point does it do passing constitutional amendments when they’re being knocked down left and right? First in Utah, then my state Oklahoma, then Kentucky in cases of out-of-state marriages and latest case is in Virginia. There’s | Read More »

An Eleventh Hour Blow to ObamaCare’s Abortion-Pill Mandate
At the eleventh hour, literally, the Supreme Court dealt a significant blow to ObamaCare’s HHS Mandate.
The mandate was set to force a group of Catholic nuns to pay for abortion pills. If that’s not an unbelievably obtrusive abuse of executive power and a trampling of religious liberty, I don’t know what is.

Politifact on ENDA: “If You Like Your Religious Freedom, You Can Keep Your Religious Freedom”
So after five years of playing the apologist for Obamacare, the deep and serious thinkers at Politifact have now determined that Obama’s pledge over keeping health care plans is a patent falsehood — the “Lie of the Year” as it were, as observers have already commented on the deep and lasting impact such a “flip flop” has on Politifact’s already battered integrity: PolitiFact’s flip-flop on | Read More »

ENDA, Pathetic Amendments, and the End of the Fight for Religious Liberty
[Update: Even after Democrats rejected Senator Toomey's milquetoast amendment, he still voted for the bill. He was joined by 9 other undocumented Democrats - Ayotte, Collins, Flake, Hatch, Heller, Kirk, McCain, Murkowski.

But this week in Washington, Harry Reid’s Senate will spend the entire week using the power of government to infringe upon our liberty and destroy the civil society. As we | Read More »
You will be made to care
At some point, those of you on the right who have completely ceded the field to the Democrats on so-called social issues will need to confront an uncomfortable reality. There is no floor to the licentiousness of the statist social-engineering agenda. We will not have a liberty-driven prosperous country built upon the ruins of the civil society. We can only go so far with government-sanctioned | Read More »

Stop the Christians? “Worship in your Church only, not out here” policy attacked at Harrisburg rally for religious liberty
(4th in A Fortnight for Freedom Series, For Greater Glory PLEDGE) No one’s laughing.
