The government might close the doors of their churches. Their tax-exempt status might be revoked. In addition to these practical issues, many pastors argued from a biblical
Kim Davis took an oath to uphold the Kentucky Constitution which forbids same-sex marriage. As a result of her refusal, Judge David Bunning put her in jail until she complies.

Kim Davis has been jailed for following the Kentucky constitution to which she took an oath to uphold. An appointed judge said she had no right to defy the Supreme Court’s ruling, a ruling that did not nullify the Kentucky constitution on the subject of same-sex marriage. Unfortunately, and something
Did our founders, after drafting a Declaration of Independence, fighting a war with England, and then sitting down to pen a national governing document (the Constitution) put in that document the right of a majority of federal judges to make laws for the entire nation?

Gun control is in the news again. every time there’s a shooting, guns are blamed, and yet 100 million gun owners did not kill anyone the day these news reporters were murdered. Liberals are calling for more laws to restrict gun ownership. How many more laws are needed to stop
“What harm will come to you if same-sex marriage is made legal? No third parties will be forced to support same-sex marriage in any way.” How many times did we hear this assured claim in defense of same-sex marriage? Like so many things liberals say to get laws passed, this
Not all laws are to be obeyed. There is biblical (Hebrew midwives), historical (underground railroad), and constitutional precedent (Dred Scott case) for civil disobedience. Martin Luther King, Jr., insisted in his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” “that everyone has a ‘legal’ and ‘moral responsibility’ to follow just laws, but that one
Dr. Ben Carson was asked by NBC’s Chuck Todd a question from a Facebook poster named Victor Roush, “Does the Bible have authority over the constitution?” It was posed as a “simple question.” Here is what Dr. Carson said: “That is not a simple question by any stretch of the imagination.
Liberals are entrenched in every major media, legal, business, and social organization. They learned a long time ago that cultures don’t change from throwing bombs and rioting. Liberals from the 1960s and 1970s changed tactics. They shaved, cut their hair, put on suits, and infiltrated every power institution in America.
“A federal judge in Pennsylvania has thrown out a lawsuit challenging the presence of a Ten Commandments monument at a local high school, declaring that the complainants have not suffered injury from the display.” That’s hardly a good argument. “Plaintiffs … have failed to establish that they were forced to
You know it had to happen. Unelected judges have gotten into the censorship business. Planned Parenthood was caught bloody red handed negotiating prices for the body parts of murdered unborn babies. Not able to answer the charges and with more videos about to be released, PP knew that their only option
There is no need for government schools. In fact, government (public) schools are our nation’s biggest enemy. They are liberalism’s false churches with their own priesthood and sacred texts. Education is where the power is. Government schools feed the law schools, and the law schools feed Congress and the courts.
“Gay Man Files $70M Suit Against Bible Publishers Over ‘Homosexual’ Verses’” has been passed around the internet and Facebook seemingly as the result of the SCOTUS pro-homosexual marriage decision. The fact is, the hand-written suit was filed in 2008 “while President Bush was still in office and seven years before
By now you know that a bakery has been fined $135,000 for not baking a cake for a lesbian wedding. Let that sink in. It’s not that the bakery refused to bake a cake; it only refused to bake a cake with a particular message on it. Now we’re learning
You may remember when Ireland voted to sanction same-sex marriage that gays around the world were ecstatic and made mention of a double rainbow in the sky as some sort of divine approval of the vote. I asked in an article on the claim, “So what about the rainbows that
Many people don’t know we celebrate Independence Day. It’s a non-work day, so that’s good enough for them. Political independence from a controlling government over local politics was the goal. The following is from Breitbart: “A new poll just out from Rasmussen shows the credibility of the Supreme Court has been severely
