    South Dakota House Members Show They Care for Children and Families
    January 30, 2020

    Yesterday, by a vote of 46-23, the South Dakota House of Representatives responded to the growing threat of the radical elements of the transgender movement by passing Bill 1057, which if approved will protect the state's children and families. The measure prohibits the prescribing of puberty-blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, and gender reassignment surgery from being performed on minors under the age of 16. (continue reading...)

    SCOTUS Reviews Faith-hostile Blaine Amendments
    January 30, 2020

    Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court began hearing oral arguments in an important religious freedom case, Espinoza v. Montana. At the heart of this case is whether or not parents can choose to send their children to the school that is best for them, even if that school happens to be a religiously affiliated one.

    Our Military Should Be Cultivating Masculinity, Not Denigrating It
    January 30, 2020

    A recent review of U.S. special operations forces pointed to a leadership crisis in our military, concluding that leadership, discipline and accountability must be strengthened at all levels. West Point Military Academy, which is supposed to be the Army's preeminent leader development institution, hasn't been immune to this breakdown in leadership. Earlier this month, West Point cadets attended "Honorably Living Day," a mandatory event dedicated to promoting diversity and feminist thought where facilitators discouraged what they called "toxic masculinity."

    Religious Freedom Wins in Closely Watched Texas Race
    January 29, 2020

    Last night, Republican Gary Gates surprised pollsters and political observers by beating Democrat Eliz Markowitz by a whopping 16 points in a race for Texas District 28's state House seat. The race had attracted outsized national attention due to the involvement of several Democratic presidential candidates, including Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, who endorsed the Democrat candidate, and Michael Bloomberg and Julian Castro, who traveled to Texas to campaign with Markowitz.

    A Stand for the Right to Pray
    January 29, 2020

    When students at East Ridge High School in Lick Creek, Kentucky turned a school locker into a prayer locker, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State rushed to stop it. It appears that the idea of students submitting prayer requests other students could pray for was just too much for the anti-religion activists to take. Accused of a supposed "violation of the separation of church and state," the school was quick to pull the plug on the student prayer effort. Yet, one bold sophomore, Emily Chaney, didn't give up so easily. (continue reading...)

    CNN's Contempt Serves Up A Lemon
    January 28, 2020

    "A house divided against itself cannot stand." Those were the words Abraham Lincoln used in 1858 when opening a speech about slavery in the states -- the most divisive issue of that time. Those words were not Lincoln's own, of course. They were borrowed from Jesus, whom all three synoptic gospels record saying the phrase. It's a truth that's older than the nations, and it's no less true in 2020 than it was in 1858 or two thousand years ago. Division was there then, and division is here now, and nothing drives division more than contempt. (continue reading...)

    Abortion Mandates Come with Real Life Consequences
    January 28, 2020

    Last Friday, on the morning of the March for Life, HHS Secretary Alex Azar announced live from FRC's ProLifeCon that the Trump administration would be cracking down on California for forcing all insurance plans in the state, including churches, to cover abortion. The Weldon Amendment is a federal law ensuring that states do not discriminate against health care providers for refusing to cover abortion. (continue reading...)

    Will Children Be Protected in South Dakota?
    January 28, 2020

    South Dakota, the home of Mount Rushmore, is considering a bill that would tell doctors to rush less toward making irreversible changes to the bodies of children with gender dysphoria. House Bill 1057, the Vulnerable Child Protection Act, would prohibit medical personnel from giving puberty-blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, or gender reassignment surgery to minors under a certain age (16 in the latest version of the bill). (continue reading...)

    Life in the Administration
    January 27, 2020

    Last Friday, President Trump made history by becoming the first sitting U.S. president to speak in-person at the March for Life, the nation's largest gathering of pro-life supporters and advocates. Speaking before hundreds of thousands assembled on the National Mall, President Trump declared, "All of us here today understand an eternal truth: Every child is a precious and sacred gift from God. Together, we must protect, cherish, and defend the dignity and sanctity of every human life." (continue reading...)
