Gun Control Can’t Keep Us Down

While liberals in Washington are blaming every school shooting and violent crime on the lax gun control laws in the land, courageous private citizens are proving that they can hold their own in protecting themselves and their property even without the aid of guns. When Indianapolis resident Karen Dolley found an intruder in her home, she intended to use her gun to protect her person and her home,  but she couldn’t find it.  So then, she fell into skills she learned earlier in her life through Read more […]

The GOP Betrayal of Religious Freedom in Indiana

The Federalist analyzes the GOP betrayal: Indiana is now the most restrictive state in the Union. We have now reached the point where Rick Santorum and a Lesbian couple have more in common on the concept of freedom, including religious freedom, than either have with the Republican governor and Republican legislators of Indiana. It really is nothing less than a GOP betrayal of religious freedom. As the Federalist puts it: “Indiana Is Now The Most Hostile State To Religious Freedom.” In Read more […]

Will Indiana Be Broken by Law?

At the foundation of every social order is a concept of law, government and individual rights. For most of the history of our country this foundation was the Bible — the Word of God — including both the Old and New Testaments. All of the original 13 states expressed in their Constitutions that the Christian Faith was the foundation of law.   And the laws of each of those states were designed to secure the protection of its exercise.  Contrast this with communist Russia’s policy that Read more […]

How to Answer Liberal Myths about Freedom

If you can get a liberal to talk to you, you should be able to free them from some liberal myths about religious freedom and homosexuals. The “question and answer” section of this article (“How to Talk About the Indiana Law With Your Liberal Relatives at Easter.”) at the Daily Signal is a must-read—very helpful for discussions and fair to the issues involved. If you’re really after tolerance, you should be in support of the Religious Freedom acts, as originally passed. So let’s be honest Read more […]

Indiana Pizzeria Gets Support from Everyone!

The Indiana pizzeria is closed down right now, but it is supported by Christians and homosexuals. We have posted earlier about an Indiana pizza business that is being accused of “discrimination” against homosexuals. As is well explained in this video, the issue is being intentionally confused. The business has never discriminated against its customers; it has simply elected not to participate in a ceremony that the owners regard as a fictional mockery of a wedding. There is no other way Read more […]

Without Freedom, Being Unpopular Is Dangerous

While political power expands, it becomes unsafe to have unpopular ideas about homosexual marriage or many other things. Kevin Williams wrote a brilliant and sobering essay at the National Review: “War on the Private Mind.” Adlai Stevenson famously offered this definition: “A free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular.” We do not live in that society. Barack Obama can run for office as an anti-gay-marriage candidate — which he did, more than once — and that is a ho-hum Read more […]

Pizza Store Owner Accused of Discrimination but Does He?

To find discrimination against homosexuals we need proof that he has turned away a homosexual from his business for being homosexual. When I first wrote about Indiana last month, I prefaced my remarks with the following statement: Just to be clear, I am opposed to any law that singles out practicing homosexuals for special exclusions in business service, but I think it is a fundamental human right to refuse to associate with anyone on any grounds. Everyone should have the right to refuse any Read more […]

Indiana Governor Now Wants Christians Forced to Serve Gay “Weddings”?

But why are Christians forced to propagandize for homosexuals if homosexuals are free to refuse service to Christians? reported yesterday evening that Indiana Governor Mike Pence is doing some horrible backpedalling: “Amendment to Indiana’s RFRA Would Eliminate Discrimination Defense for Business Owners.” Yesterday Indiana Gov. Mike Pence promised to seek legislation clarifying that his state’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) “does not give anyone a license to Read more […]

No to Indiana “Discrimination,” but Killing Homosexuals Okay?

Businesses that want to boycott Indiana have no problem doing businesses in countries where killing homosexuals is considered just. How does that work? I noticed back when the Obama Administration was publicly denouncing Russia for a law restricting homosexuality, that it was entirely hypocritical to condemn a country for using prison sentences against child-abusers and be friends and allies with a country (Saudi Arabia) that beheaded homosexuals. Now points out the same thing Read more […]

Illinois Has the Same Law that Indiana Passed

How can two states have the same law and only one get condemned for it? Or twenty states? Pete Heck writes in the Indy Star about opposition to the Indiana religious freedom restoration law: Eskenazi Health argued that enactment of the law could lead to the denial of health services for people in need of medical attention. To bolster this outlandish and irresponsible claim, one activist testified before the Statehouse that before her female partner died of ovarian cancer, she worried that the Read more […]

Discussion about Indiana is Useless if It Is Only a Powerplay

Brett Arends writes one of the few worthwhile pieces on the Indiana religious freedom law at “Indiana didn’t actually pass an anti-gay bill.” If you’d read the text of the law, you’d understand right away. If you want to know why the so-called wisdom of crowds is a load of B.S., just take a look at the widespread reaction last week to Indiana’s new religious-freedom law. If you listened to all the voices who have weighed in on this subject, from TV to radio to the Read more […]

To Fight Discrimination, Two Mayors Ban Indiana

No one must be permitted to decide with whom they do business, so two mayors tell city employees they must ban Indiana from their travel. Indiana’s state affirmation of the First Amendment continues to be attacked as a bill legalizing “discrimination.” I guess this means that the people who attack Indiana in this inaccurate way must really hate discrimination. They must believe that you must never refuse to do business with someone or some group on the basis of any moral problems you Read more […]
