Trump Administration Proposes Key Guidance Protecting Prayer in School and New Regulations Across 9 Federal Agencies to Protect Religious Liberty

Jordan Sekulow | ACLJ

First, the Administration is issuing new guidance to public schools nationwide ensuring the right of each and every student to pray in school. It further provides guidance on a host of religious liberty issues including Bibles in schools and the religious liberty rights of teachers and other school staff. Second, the Administration will be issuing new rules across nine federal agencies to ensure that religious organizations and faith-based businesses are not only treated the same as non-religious organizations and businesses, but that specifically remove forced speech requirements that required religious organizations and businesses to refer for services that violate their faith.

Trump Issue Guidance on Constitutional Prayer in Public Schools

WASHINGTON (CNS) -- President Donald Trump announced his administration's new guidance on prayer in public schools during a Jan. 16 event in the Oval Office on National Religious Freedom Day.

Primarily, it will require states to report cases where public school students have been denied their right to pray.

Ahead of the event -- which was delayed from a 2 p.m. (EST) start to about 4 p.m. -- material on the guidance was provided to reporters in a background briefing the morning of Jan. 16.

In a separate proposed rule, the administration aims to protect the rights of religious student groups at public universities, giving them equal treatment with secular student groups.  SOURCE and CONTINUE READING

Will police enforce Virginia’s anti-masking law at Monday’s rally?

Will police enforce Virginia’s anti-masking law at Monday’s rally?

By Steve Grammatico | American Thinker

Monday’s pro Second Amendment rally in Richmond will surely attract left provocateurs bent on inciting violence.  And why not  They know that Governor Northam and compliant media will blame any physical confrontations on gun rights advocates, making them the villains and obscuring their message. 

Ostensibly to keep public order but more likely to foment trouble (as detailed in James G. Robertson’s article here), Northam took the constitutionally suspect step of banning lawful carry in an area around the Capitol’s grounds.  As of this writing, the order stands. Read More


Virginia becomes last state needed to add pro-abortion ‘Equal Rights Amendment’ to Constitution

Virginia becomes last state needed to add pro-abortion ‘Equal Rights Amendment’ to Constitution

Martin M. Barillas | LifeSiteNews

The director of a pro-life group called the vote a campaign to put abortion rights into the Constitution.

RICHMOND, Virginia, January 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – The Virginia state legislature ratified the pro-abortion Equal Rights Amendment on Wednesday, making the state the 38th and final state ostensibly needed to add the measure to the U.S. Constitution.

The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) has been a feminist goal for nearly a century. If passed, the ERA would prohibit discrimination based on sex and become a part of the U.S. Constitution, but could also constitutionally protect abortion. While opponents claim that Virginia’s ratification is merely symbolic, feminists are suing in federal court to force its adoption to the Constitution.

Virginia’s Second Amendment Attack, as Northam is Pulling the Trigger

Virginia’s Second Amendment Attack, as Northam is Pulling the Trigger

Walter Williams | FPM

The people versus abusive government.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam apologized for his medical school blackface stunt, but he will have much more to apologize for if he signs into law a bill that attacks Virginia citizens' Second Amendment rights. The measure is Senate Bill 16, which would ban "assault" firearms and certain firearm magazines. Since Democrats have seized control of Virginia's General Assembly, they are likely to push hard for strict gun control laws.

Those laws will have zero impact on Virginia's criminals and a heavy impact on Virginia's law-abiding citizens who own, or intend to own, automatic weapons for hunting or their protection. As a friend once explained to me,

"I carry a gun because I can't carry a cop." Read More


Transgender Athletes Playing Competitive Sports Was a Rising Policy Issue in 2019

Transgender Athletes Playing Competitive Sports Was a Rising Policy Issue in 2019

Nicole Russell | The Daily Signal

The year 2019 saw an uptick in male athletes besting females in female-only sports, citing their transgender identity.

Now, lawmakers in three states—Washington, Tennessee, and Georgia—have proposed legislation that would place restrictions on transgender athletes in sports. Might legislation quell this new wave of transgender activism and make sports fair again

The Tennessee Star reports that state Rep. Bruce Griffey, a Republican, proposed HB 1572, a bill that would “require elementary and secondary school student-athletes to compete in sports based on their biological sex at birth.”

The legislation stipulates that if Tennessee public schools violate this requirement, they would no longer be eligible to receive taxpayer subsidies from the state or a local government. Read More


A Kingdom for All: The Gospel of Luke and the Birth of Jesus

A Kingdom for All: The Gospel of Luke and the Birth of Jesus

Luke Ch 1-2

The first in a five-part series on the Gospel of Luke. We explore the amazing events surrounding the birth of Jesus. The humble conditions of his family and their low status in Israelite society foreshadow the upside-down nature of Jesus’ kingdom.

Luke documents how Jesus expands God's kingdom and covenant by creating a new Israel that includes the poor, outcasts and others to whom Jesus brings restoration and reverses their life circumstances as He gives them freedom and release from the tyranny of evil and sin.

Throughout the book, we see that Jesus is indeed the messianic king, but He will reign over Israel by suffering. His actions usher in an upside down kingdom marked by self-giving love, and He challenges his disciples to follow His example and share in His ministry.

Resolution: Stand Up to “LGBT” Bullies in 2020

Resolution: Stand Up to “LGBT” Bullies in 2020

Linda Harvey | Mission America

Who are the real bigots and bullies in America today We all know the answer. The body count is piling up of those who’ve capitulated to sexual rebel demands. And it’s not because these folks occupy the high moral ground.

Corporations, schools, politicians and everyday moms and dads give in to the "LGBT" bullies mostly out of fear. Chick Fil A and Hallmark are the latest prominent examples of appeasement as once family-friendly companies attempt to buy off this mob.
