The Pendulum Is Moving

David French writes at National Review that three national polls show Americans rejecting the ruling of the US Supreme Court that purported to redefine marriage, and that support for same-sex ‘marriage’ is dropping.

Groups Urge Alabama Supreme Court to Stand Strong for Marriage

The Constitution is the highest law in the land, not the Supreme Court. When the courts err by issuing an illegitimate decision that lacks constitutional basis, local and state governments are not required to broadly apply them. For this reason, two additional groups are calling for the Alabama Supreme Court to resist the United States […]

Redefining Marriage Puts All Children at Risk

Our culture has become one focused on satisfying adult desires, no matter the cost. The recent Planned Parenthood scandal reinforces this fact, but its existence is not the cause.

As a recent AP-GFK polls shows, 41% of Americans now disapprove of the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage, while only 39% support the decision.

Brian Brown: America Needs a Leader Who Will Protect the Family

In the coming election, America needs a candidate willing to stand up for truth. The DNC has failed America in this respect; the Supreme Court’s legalization of gay marriage under the Obama administration has incontrovertibly proved that. When we turn to the GOP though, we are met with an alarming lack of leadership on social […]

Alabama Supreme Court Urged to Protect Religious Liberty

In a potentially significant development, Liberty Counsel has led a brief with the Alabama Supreme Court urging it to ignore the SCOTUS ruling on marriage, citing as precedent a state Supreme Court ruling in Wisconsin where that Court refused to follow the Supreme Court’s ruling in the infamous Dred Scott case. The Alabama Supreme Court […]

The Truth About Marriage Can't Be Changed

This past Monday, C. Allen McConnell, a Toledo judge, refused to perform a local couple’s same-sex wedding ceremony.

I apologize to the couple […]

The Awakening of the Silent Majority: First on Abortion, Next on Marriage

In spite of the fact that SCOTUS has failed the American people by choosing not to protect the institution of the family, marriage supporters have every reason to keep up the fight — just examine the pro-life movement. The history of the pro-life movement demonstrates that Roe v. Wade did not at all end the […]

SCOTUS Marriage Ruling Has Left In Full Retreat on Religious Liberty

Robert Knight, a senior fellow for the American Civil Rights Union, offers his informed opinion on what lies ahead for those who disagree with SCOTUS’s ruling regarding same-sex marriage: an end to their religious freedom.

Happy Independence Day

On this Independence Day, we celebrate: The men and woman who sacrificed everything for Liberty. Those who founded this nation upon the radical notion that our rights come not from a benevolent government, but are unalienable, granted us by the Creator. Who recognize that the Creator endowed us with the institution of marriage as the […]

Bobby Jindal Knows Exactly What Marriage Is

While the Supreme Court’s recent decision regarding marriage exemplifies that the majority of the justices do not understand the cultural significance, biological requirements, or historical reasoning of marriage, Bobby Jindal assures everyone that he is not “evolving” on marriage: GOP presidential candidate Bobby Jindal says he will not change his stance on marriage. The Louisiana […]
