British Parliament Forces Abortion, Same-Sex Marriage on Northern Ireland

The British Parliament exploited a political dispute in Northern Ireland to force the legalization of abortion and same-sex marriage in the region. Northern Ireland, a country of 1.9 million, is a “devolved region,” meaning it has some autonomy but is subject to the rule of the United Kingdom. But its governing body has been suspended for over two and a half years because of a dispute between the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and Sinn Fein, the two major parties in the country which have failed to form a government in the country’s parliamentary system. The British Parliament has retained more

Arizona Supreme Court Upholds Religious Liberty of Calligraphers

This past Monday marked another important victory for religious liberty, this time coming via an Arizona Supreme Court ruling. The case dealt with many familiar issues: two Christian calligraphers, Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, operate a company called Brush and Nib LLC which specializes in handmade, custom calligraphy products. The duo felt that a Phoenix municipal ordinance intended to prevent undue discrimination in commerce had the potential to do the opposite: coerce them to produce creative products which send messages contrary to their religious beliefs. Consequently, in 2016 Duka and Koski sued the city of Phoenix in an Arizona trial

Minn. Videographers Get Big Win in Key Religious Liberty Case

This past Friday marked a significant victory for religious freedom. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down most of a U.S. District Court decision which threatened to force videographers to produce content that violates the commands of their conscience. Instead, the appeals court ruled that a Minnesota anti-discrimination law could very well be unconstitutional and that a challenge to the law could therefore proceed. The appellants, Carl and Angel Larsen, own a videography company called Telescope Media which produces commercial short-films and other video products. They first brought their case forward when they took the Minnesota Human Rights Commissioner

Maryland Drops School from State Voucher Program over Christian Beliefs

In the immediate aftermath of the Supreme Court’s 2015 landmark decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, it concerned some jurists that institutions favoring traditional marriage might receive heavy-handed treatment from the government as a result of the ruling. Conservative justices on the court strongly dissented and raised concerns about the implications of the case on wide-reaching elements of American society. Notably, Justice Samuel Alito was worried about the effects it would have on people of faith, when he said that Obergefell “will be used to vilify Americans who are unwilling to assent to the new orthodoxy.”  While the Left had argued

Joe Biden Joins the Movement for a False “Equality”

Earlier this month, Democratic front runner Joe Biden reportedly declared that when it comes to his run for the presidency, the “Equality Act would be his top legislative priority, an effort to enshrine LGBTQ protections into the nation’s labor and civil rights laws.” Biden’s announcement brings up a very important question: Is our society strengthened or weakened by the advancement of such “equality” legislation? Certainly Biden and most public institutions think so. However, for those who know the Natural Law and the teaching of the ancients concerning law and language, a very different conclusion emerges.  A law, according to Thomas

Colorado Baker Secures Another Big Win for Religious Liberty

In a win for religious liberty, the state of Colorado has decided to drop its case against Christian baker Jack Phillips after years of legal hostility. Phillips is the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop and was the leading figure in last summer’s 7-2 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that overturned Colorado’s attempt to force him to create a cake for a same-sex wedding. The ruling was a win for both Phillips and religious liberty. Yet, less than a month later, another complaint was filed against him for his refusal to bake a cake that celebrated a transgender transition. The state of Colorado

New Democrat Dogma: No “Decent” Person Can Oppose Same-Sex Marriage

Democrats are now openly saying that if you disagree with same-sex marriage, you’re no longer a decent person. Some on the Left have been saying that for a few years now, forgetting that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both publicly opposed same-sex marriage as recently as seven years ago. But now, even prominent national Democrats who want to be president are declaring it. The most recent incident of this started when former Vice President Joe Biden referred to current Vice President Mike Pence as “a decent guy.” Pence has had the reputation as one of the nicest people in Washington,

Taylor Swift Turns Political — And Loses Her Novelty

I remember the good old days — and by that, I mean less than 10 years ago — when Taylor Swift burst onto the scene. She was a breath of fresh air — a wholesome star with compelling, honest lyrics who took the country and pop scenes by storm at the same time. She avoided going down the rabbit holes of destruction that had taken other stars like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus. It was very hard to dislike Taylor Swift. At some point, though, things changed for Swift. I don’t follow the tabloids, but something caused her lyrics to
