Help a Chaplain Disciplined for His Faith

Dec 18, 2014 by

From FRC: This cannot stand. When a military chaplain cannot openly speak about his faith, military disarmament has reached a level that no budget cuts could ever produce. On November 20th, Capt. Joseph Lawhorn, U.S. Army Chaplain at Fort Benning, participated in a mandatory suicide awareness and prevention briefing in which he gave a presentation describing resources – both spiritual and secular – that were available for handling such grave mental health situations. He went further and...

Dec 18, 2014 by

By Steve Weatherbe, LifeSite: A British hermit who only leaves his hermitage to distribute pamphlets promoting Christian teachings on homosexuality and abortion expects to be imprisoned for breaking the terms of his bail and continuing to confront his country’s “culture of death.” “At first I agreed to do no more leafleting,” Brother Damon Kelly, 53, told LifeSiteNews. “But I’ve wrestled with it, I’ve sought spiritual counsel.

By Robert Gagnon, Theopolis Institute: Sadly, most Christians in the United States, when it comes to recognizing the dangers to their civil and religious liberties, sleep the sleep of ignorance that the disciples slept at Gethsemane before the arrest of Jesus.

As a Christian, he felt that using his shop to promote a message that contradicted his faith was a non-starter. Unfortunately, Adamson has paid for his principles — dearly. In...

Here’s How the Media Got the Latest Religious Liberty Bill Wrong

Dec 14, 2014 by

By Ryan T Anderson, The Daily Signal: Finishing off a week that was pretty bad for the media, CBS News is now spinning a story about a Michigan religious freedom bill. Their headline reads: “Bill would let Michigan doctors, EMTs refuse to treat gay patients.” But the bill does nothing of the sort. The bill, passed by the Michigan House last week, is the Michigan Religious Freedom Restoration Act. And, as the legal scholar Ed Whelan points out, “the bill is modeled on the federal Religious...
