Religious Liberty

The First Amendment was written not to keep the church out of the government, but rather to keep the government out of the church. To that end, we fight for the freedom to speak the Truth without consequence, live by our Christian beliefs without persecution, and raise our families without government intrusion.

Pro-abortion clergy denounced President Trump’s recent photo-op outside St. John’s church in Washington D.C., calling him “antithetical” to Christian traditions.   But a quick examination of these clerical critics displays fierce hypocrisy in their own Christian practice.

“Essential.”   What does that mean to you?   The Merriam-Webster definition of “essential” includes “of, relating to, or constituting essence: inherent,” and, perhaps more striking in these times, “of the utmost importance.”   Our nation was founded by Christians and deists who understood the importance of faith in the forming of a civil society....

A Mississippi church has been destroyed, evidently by vandals who oppose the church’s public gatherings. Each side of the polarized COVID-19 narrative should agree that this unmerited act of heinous vandalism is despicable. We all agree, right? Good.

“Beginning well is a momentary thing; finishing well is a lifelong thing.”   There’s an imperative difference between being right and making an eternal impact. One can have a sharp mind and completely waste it, even in a ministerial capacity. But then there are those who use their God-given intellect as a means of returning...
