Legal Group Hopes Supreme Court Will Hear Florist Case As Well

Alliance Defending Freedom has asked that the U.S. Supreme Court consolidate the case of Colorado baker Jack Phillips with Washington state florist Barronelle Stutzman. The basis for the request is that both cases deal with the creative expression rights of Christian artists to deny requests for same-sex “wedding” services if it goes against their strongly held religious beliefs.

Both Phillips and Stutzman were willing to continue to sell products to their respective customers and were willing to identify other businesses that would have provided the “wedding” services they wanted, but the two homosexual couples chose to press their issues through lawsuits.

It is hoped that since the Court has agreed to hear Phillips’ case, it will also hear Stutzman’s case. Phillips’ case is scheduled to be heard in the fall.

Caitlyn Jenner Considers Run for CA Senate

Caitlyn Jenner (aka “Bruce” Jenner), a lifelong Republican and supporter of President Trump, is toying with running for the California Senate in 2018 to further the LGBT cause. “I hope to change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality,” says Jenner. The “transgender” advocate has already met behind the scenes with several high-profile Republicans, including U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, to advocate for LGBT rights among the GOP.

While it is important that Christians become involved in the political process to advance our causes, this latest news is just another reminder of how we ultimately cannot rely on the political process alone; without God’s moral foundation, politics will morph into what culture accepts. As Chuck Colson often said, “Politics is downstream from culture.”

David Daleiden on His Undercover Pro-Life Work

The Center for Medical Progress’ David Daleiden, the pro-life activist behind the fetal tissue trafficking exposé videos that revealed Planned Parenthood’s culpability, shared his thoughts about his two-and-a-half year undercover journey recently on the Eric Metaxas Show. Daleiden and coworker Sandra Merritt were charged by the state of California with 15 felonies, many of which dealt with the California video recording law.

Says Daleiden about the charges in the audio interview, “My videos expose the sacred cows of the California political establishment, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. That’s what is so dangerous about this prosecution is that it is not being brought for legal reasons whatsoever. It is being brought for purely political reasons.” Despite the trumped up charges, Daleiden shows no malice. “This entire undercover project was a project done out of love,” he says.

Ark Encounter Creator Claims Rainbow as God’s Sign

Ken Ham, the founder of Answers in Genesis and the mastermind behind the Ark Encounter, is on a mission to reclaim the rainbow for God. Rather than letting the LGBT community continue to “own” it as their symbol since the homosexual rainbow flag was created in 1978, Ham has promised to light up the ark at his Ark Encounter in rainbow colors every evening to signify his belief in God’s promise to humanity. In Genesis 9, God promised Noah and all of mankind that He would never again destroy His creation with a global flood, and he gave the rainbow as a sign of His covenant.

U.S. Armed Service Members Get Sex Changes Thanks to Some Republicans

Should taxpayers pay $3.7 billion for confused military personnel who want sex change surgeries and hormone treatment? U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler’s amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for 2018 would have banned Pentagon funding of “transgender” transitioning services for armed service members who had gender dysphoria. Hartzler’s call for spending on military readiness over political correctness apparently fell on deaf ears. With all Democrats and 24 Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives voting against the amendment on Thursday, the measure failed by a vote of 209-214. Said Hartzler, “Military members undergoing transition surgery are non-deployable for up to 267 days. Similarly, regular hormone treatments

Said Hartzler, “Military members undergoing transition surgery are non-deployable for up to 267 days. Similarly, regular hormone treatments renders [sic] individuals non-deployable into the future. It makes no sense to create soldiers who are unable to fight and win our nation’s wars and unfair to non-transitioning individuals who must leave their families and deploy in their place.”
