Senator Mike Enzi Writes Bill To Give Religious Groups Special Power To Deny Social Services To Children

This week, when U.S. Senator Mike Enzi introduced S. 2706, his Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act, he declared it to be, “A bill to ensure that organizations with religious or moral convictions are allowed to continue to provide services for children”.

Contraception and Insurance and Race and Military Recruiters and Campuses and Lunch Counters

As you’re probably aware, the Supreme Court has ruled that some American corporations are free to deny insurance coverage of contraceptive costs to their employees on religious grounds. Think about your opinion regarding this issue.

As you might also be aware, the Supreme Court has also ruled that American colleges and universities must accept military [...]

Tennessee Church Blasts Non-Christian Public School Kids As The Enemy

Parents have written messages to the school district and to the Germantown Baptist Church complaining about the preacher’s conduct, but there is little hope of preventing similar incidents in the future.

The Constitution Stained By Greece, New York

The Supreme Court decision handed down yesterday, Greece v. Galloway, gained my attention because of its subject matter. A thin, all-Christian, 5 to 4 majority of Supreme Court justices ruled that it is not a violation of the First Amendment for the Town of Greece government to compel town citizens to sit through a Christian [...]

Only Christian Supreme Court Justices Support Town Of Greece Abusive Prayer Policy

Is it any surprise that the Supreme Court would rule that it is acceptable for government to selectively promote religion when the Supreme Court itself has been closed to non-religious Americans for its entire history? [...]

Bernie Sanders Moves To Stop Employment Discrimination Against The Unemployed

One of the most memorable things for me about the story Howard’s End (other than the visual of walking through the night to arrive in a field of wildflowers at dawn) is the vivid portrayal of a worker’s professional downfall. The character leaves one job because of bad advice from a One Percenter, and then [...]

Bill In Congress Seeks To Create Marriage Inequality Across America

Dismantling constitutional rights that protect all Americans endangers the rights of all – not just the particular group of people who Randy Weber and his allies seek to target. Congressman Weber isn’t perceptive enough to grasp that concept, however. [...]

Is Chief Justice John Roberts Right? Is Pervasive Racial Discrimination in the USA Really a thing of the Past?

Writing the 5-4 majority opinion of the Supreme Court on June 25, 2013, Chief Justice John Roberts declares that Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act is no longer necessary to prevent voting discrimination on the basis of race in the United States because times have changed and racial discrimination is no longer the problem [...]
