In December the US Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd. v. Colorado Anti-Discrimination Commission case which pits a baker’s religious freedom against Colorado’s addition of “sexual orientation” to its anti-discrimination laws. The outcome of this case has ramifications for every Christian business owner in America. Homosexual activists are hoping for a win during this their ‘gay pride’ month. Pray daily for the nine Justice on the US Supreme Court – that they would simply interpret the Constitution and not rewrite it.
Last year the Senate did not vote on President Trumps’ nominee to be the next US Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom. President Trump has re-nominated Kansas Governor Sam Brownback for that position. This ambassador would be in charge of investigating religious freedom violations around the world and submit an annual report to inform the President of those violations, as well as promote religious freedom through State Department foreign policy. Ask Senators Casey and Toomey to support Governor Brownback and push for his confirmation.
The radical Left and its media cronies are determined to control the internet and what you can say and what you can access. This is evident in the hysteria that has been prevalent during the debate over the repeal of benign sounding “net neutrality” and its recent repeal. Attacks and threats against FCC chair Ajit Pai, who led the way to repeal, continue and must be countered with our words of appreciation and encouragement.
Synopsis: December 15, 1791, the day Virginia voted to ratify, was the day the Bill of Rights became part of the United States Constitution. These ten amendments were designed to limit the power of the federal government. Too many Americans, including judges, don’t remember the real reason for the Bill of Rights nor the original intent of them. And . . . no, “separation of church and state” is not there! Now you have an opportunity to commemorate the Bill of Rights on their birthday!
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued two very important memos addressing Title VII and religious freedom. Both of these had been misinterpreted over the last eight years which resulted in misrepresenting what the original intents of the authors of Title VII and the First Amendment were. These memos bring common sense back into these documents.
A former US Marshall who is now in Pennsylvania’s State Senate is fed up with the anti-American NFL protests surrounding the National Motto and says they cannot go “unrebuked.” Senator Mike Regan, Republican from York County, is circulating a co-sponsorship memo for a resolution condemning the anti-American protests on the gridiron the weekend of September 23rd and 24th.
The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide traditional values group and an advocate for the First Amendment, has contacted Beaver Area School District superintendent Dr. Carrie Rowe and asked her take to up First Liberty Institute’s offer to sit down and discuss how the school district might provide for religious expression in the future. Graduation Day on June 2nd should have been a happy time for all graduating seniors, but when one’s speech has been censored by the administration that takes away from the significant milestone in a student’s life.
Today is the National Day of Prayer and President Trump took advantage of the day to sign an executive order protecting religious liberty. The executive order focused on the Johnston Amendment in an effort to weaken its strangle hold on churches and other religious organizations.
Tonight those city council members who were elected to uphold the Constitution chose instead to ignore it and deny its very existence. City Council has voted to remove the war memorial because atheists found part of it offensive — the Tyrants Bench with a paraphrase of William Penn’s quote “Men who aren’t governed by God will be governed by tyrants.” The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), an advocate for the First Amendment and the Founding Fathers understanding of it, is appalled that not one city council member had the courage to stand up against the bullies from the American Atheists, but instead gave in to their unconstitutional demands.
Today is the 225th anniversary of the passage of the Bill of Rights. Too many Americans don’t even know what the first ten amendments to the Constitution say, let alone the reason why these were so important to the founding of this nation.
