‘Don’t let the secular progressives drive God out,’ Carson tells GOP

ben_carson

By Mark Hensch – The Hill GOP presidential contender Ben Carson on Saturday urged conservatives to remain resolute when government challenges their religious liberties. “Don’t let the secular progressives drive God out of our lives,” Carson told listeners at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City. “We have to stop letting them bully us,” he said of secular interests. ‘We back down too easily. It’s an important part of who we are.” Carson said that government was never meant to have a role controlling people’s beliefs. He challenged Americans to reclaim their nation’s founding principles and shrink bureaucracy’s role ...

Atheists want ‘In God We Trust’ off our money

in_god_we_trust_dollar

Nothing demonstrates better than this case how the progressive Left is really not about tolerance, cooperation, or the strengthening and maintaining of American values and tradition You have to give it to progressives; when it comes to pet issues, their outrage knows no boundaries, their scorn no limits and their commitment to impose their will on all of us – no matter what we think – solid. Therefore, it should not surprise conservatives and constitutionalists that progressives are, once more, seeking to remove the phrase, “In God We Trust” from all U.S. currency. This effort has been ongoing for years. ...

Should this Air Force general be punished for his personal expression of religious faith?

bible_military

A ‘civil rights’ group thinks that a top-ranked Air Force general overstepped his legal bounds when he thanked God for helping him accomplish goals throughout his career, but it is obvious the organization doesn’t know the rules A favorite saying among military officers and senior non-commissioned officers is this: “We are here to defend democracy, not practice it.” The point is, in the military, you follow lawful, constitutional orders without question, whereas in the civilian world, you have more leeway. But should constitutional rights – especially the First Amendment’s freedom of religion and expression – be denied to military personnel? ...

Islamic Sharia law is already in America

sharia

The problem in Balkanizing the United States with different, often competing, religions and cultures is not just that there are going to be legal and constitutional conflicts, there are going to be tragedies as well – and perpetual unrest On a recent morning cable show where the hosts and guests were discussing Pamela Geller’s free speech event in Garland, Texas, which involved a contest to see who could create the best caricature of the Prophet Muhammad, the subject of Islamic Sharia law coming to the U.S. was broached. Ah, c’mon, said one of the hosts. That’s ridiculous. Never happen. Stop ...

Should a baby be punished for the acts of its gay parents?

gay_marriage

If there must be absolute religious freedom, how can it be permitted to occur in a manner many consider discriminatory? The issue of religious freedom has once again landed smack in the center of the American conscience, and it is bound to further muddy the waters in what is already a complex constitutional problem. As reported by The Blaze, a decision by an Episcopal church in Florida has upset a gay couple for canceling an adoption ceremony for their adopted son after the church had originally agreed to perform it. One of the baby’s fathers, Rich McCaffrey, in a Facebook ...

Catholic priest: ‘An atheist cannot be president’

church

Americans overwhelmingly identify themselves as Christians but it’s not clear that translates into a quality they would like to see in their presidents A Catholic priest and noted social commentator has intimated that in order for someone to be president of the United States, they have to believe in the Christian God. Cue liberal outrage. Father Jonathan Morris opined during a Sunday appearance on “Fox & Friends” that atheists may not make the best presidential candidates – or presidents, presumably – because they don’t believe in power higher than themselves. Fr. Morris was discussing recent speeches given by GOP presidential ...

States and the people should be deciding what constitutes marriage, not a court

Supreme-Court-Gay-Marriage

The Constitution is silent on which visions of marriage is “correct,” so We the People have constitutional authority to make marriage policy, not the courts The U.S. Supreme Court began hearing arguments for and against state laws that define marriage as only a union between a man and a woman on Tuesday, providing the first public glimpse into what position they intend to take on the issue. As reported by Fox News and other media, the nine justices will attempt to rule whether states have the power to make such determinations, or whether the Constitution already gives gays and lesbians ...
