Does Georgia’s Sen. Isakson Understand What FADA Does?

In a speech at Atlanta, Sen. Johnny Isakson urged the Georgia Assembly not to pass a state-based First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) bill and instead leave it to Congress to establish a federal standard for all 50 states: “We ought to have a single, federal standard,” he said. “That ought to be dealt with at the federal level, not the state level.” Urging legislators not to act on a “controversial” issue the Left hates is like urging a bee to fly to flowers. Both Isakson and his fellow Georgia senator David Perdue are cosponsors of FADA, so I have to

Why Rubio’s Endorsement of a Constitutional Convention Doesn’t Thrill Me

Rubio earned praise from Mark Levin for calling for a Constitutional Convention of the States, one of the means set forth by the Constitution to create amendments that bypasses Congress entirely. Here’s why I’m not so thrilled: Setting aside the question of whether or not it is a good idea, it is an idea which the President has no power to implement, and so no responsibility for success or failure. Let’s assume good faith on Rubio’s part. Rubio calls on the states to act. Then what? Most likely nothing. And it’s not his fault. And once again conservatives vote for

Why FADA is Needed: Debbie Calls Rubio a Bigot

If you doubt what the Left intends to do with gay marriage, hear Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC’s attack dog, blithely call Marco Rubio, a first-generation American success story, a “bigot” because he doesn’t agree with gay marriage: If Marco Rubio doesn’t like being called a bigot, he should show a little more compassion for his fellow Americans: https://t.co/vsVvCGM2aZ — D Wasserman Schultz (@DWStweets) December 22, 2015 This is why I’ve made the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) an absolute priority. It will prevent the federal government from using its power of the purse to punish traditional believers and to

How to Protect Christians Here at Home

The Pulse 2016‘s own Maggie Gallagher was on EWTN’s “News Nightly” yesterday, where she discussed APP’s First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) pledge which has been signed by six presidential candidates. She also addressed why passing FADA ought to be a significant priority for conservatives heading into 2016: We need [FADA] because the Obama Administration told the Supreme Court that the tax-exempt status of Christian schools and charities will be in play after gay marriage. Major scholars like Notre Dame’s Rick Garnett are saying that Catholic schools and other schools that do not treat gay married students equally with other married

Can Republicans Win in a Post-Gay Marriage America?

There’s only one thing that can stop the left’s assault on Christians and those that hold the belief that marriage is between a man and a woman – electoral pain and suffering. We have to beat them on Election Day, and we have to beat them badly. Since even before the Obergefell decision – mandating gay marriage in all 50 states – radicals on the left have been moving to brand those with Judeo-Christian views on sexuality and marriage as hateful bigots – the moral equivalent of racists. Now, they are working to pass laws and enforce regulations that force religious schools, churches, charities, and universities

Tony Perkins on the FADA Vow Makers

Tony Perkins, president of FRC Action, recently praised the candidates willing to commit to prioritizing FADA: “I commend the ten presidential candidates who have signed the pledge or have publicly stated support for legislation that simply protects Americans from being punished by the government for holding a belief in natural marriage. “Our future President, whoever he or she may be, has an important part to play in making FADA a reality in the first 100 days of the new Administration but Congress still has a responsibility in 2016 and beyond. “Every day the American people open their newspapers and read
