Obama's Farewell Praised "Democracy" -- But His Support for Judicial Tyranny On Marriage Shows He Doesn't Mean It
January 18, 2017 from Family Research Council
President Obama’s farewell address in Chicago on January 10—although overshadowed in the news cycle by President-elect Trump’s press conference in New York less than a day later—deserves some attention. There were some interesting tidbits in the speech for those of us who seek to bring our faith to bear in the world of public policy. My former boss, Rob Schwarzwalder, quickly took the president to task for declaring that “the essential spirit of this country . . . that guided our Founders” was “born of the Enlightenment . . . a faith in reason . . .” In reality, the Founders were guided by faith in divine Providence, as well as a biblical worl

Dear Friends, When we accept Jesus as Lord, our lives must change. As Bishop Robert Barron points out, this is truly good news for some, but for others, it is a threat to their way of life. Why? “If Jesus is Lord, my ego can’t be Lord. My religion can’t be Lord. My country, my convictions, and my culture cannot be Lord.” Bishop Barron elaborates: “The resurrection is the clearest indication of the Lordship of Jesus. This is why the message of the resurrection is attacked, belittled, or explained away ... This reveals a great mystery: we are called to announce the good news to everyone, but not everyone will listen. Once we’ve done our work, we should move

January 19, 2017 by Staff
Assisted suicide was legalized in Canada last June. And since then it has claimed the lives of 744 people.

Dr. King, who navigated an even tougher political environment, invested much of his life to restore the basic dignity of black men and women systematically deprived of things mo...
