  • Can a President Protect Religious Liberty (August 24, 2016)


    Throughout history, Christianity has been under attack because it believes a Creator has imposed laws and norms on his creation that apply to all human behavior, including the kinds of policies human governments enact. 

    When Christianity comes into conflict with a culture or civil government that believes man is his own god, it must be attacked and subdued.  So can a President stop the attacks on religious liberty? To be sure, a new President might be able to impede some attacks , but since our culture has made man its god, the attacks will not stop absent a cultural reformation that brings bring us back to place where our culture sees God as the true god.

    The sooner Christians see what’s behind today’s relentless attacks on religious liberty the sooner we’ll get on with the work of cultural reformation.

  • Common Core 2.0 In Loco Parentis (August 17, 2016)

    It looks like the Tennessee Department of Education did not learn its lesson with Common Core.  Through a new educational initiative, the Department is going down a similar path with something even worse. 

    The new program is called “Social and Emotional Learning” which teaches things such as “prosocial” behavior and ethical decision-making, concepts that are very subjective and properly belong in the realm of the parent-child relationship.  These new standards are set to be integrated across ALL areas of instruction, so every child will be subject to social and emotional testing, not just those with behavioral or mental health issues. 

    This initiative is a potential Trojan Horse for social engineering in our schools.  If we do not take action and contact our legislators, our children may be taught values at school that conflict with values being taught at home.

  • Obergefell Fallout in Knoxville (August 10, 2016)

    When the Supreme Court tried to redefine marriage last summer, state courts were left to grapple with how to apply other statutes that specifically refer to a husband and wife.

    Were courts required to reinterpret those words to simply mean spouse one and spouse two? Of course, not. Thankfully, a Knoxville judge just agreed.  It was a custody case involving two “married” women who had a child by artificial insemination. The judge said he did not have the authority to rewrite, by interpretation, a custody statute referring to a husband and wife as though it referred to two wives.

    What will the Court of Appeals do? If the appellate courts begin to blatantly re-write unambiguous statutes, perhaps we’ll see just how broken and out of control the judicial branch is. Then maybe we’ll insist on judicial reform.

  • Why Millennials Favor Government Restriction of Liberty (August 3, 2016)

    In a recent poll, 55% of Millennials have a favorable view of “socialism.” Why do young people favor a system that restricts liberty?

    The reality is that have been taught a worldview from the earliest age that sees government as the primary source of authority in their lives. This foundational belief has developed a generation of adults that will condemn an exercise of liberty that may offend someone somewhere.

    However, Millennials who applaud government restriction of liberty in an area they oppose need to realize that a future government may use the same principle to restrict liberties they support.

    Without a proper understanding of the natural law origins of the Constitution and that our Creator, not government, is the source of our rights and liberties, we will be susceptible to tyranny and the loss of our great virtue – freedom.

  • A Disturbing Judicial Trend (July 27, 2016)

    Recently, the Supreme Court refused to hear a case in which Washington changed its pharmacy referral rules for the sole purpose of forcing pharmacists to sell the “morning after” pill after a few of them declined to carry it due to their religious belief that life begins at conception.

    This continues a disturbing judicial trend of ignoring constitutional rights like the Free Exercise of religion while elevating the importance of judicially-created rights like abortion and same-sex “marriage.”

    Courts will go to extreme lengths to protect the slightest perceived infringement of these rights, yet seem completely unconcerned about an explicit violation of an enumerated First Amendment right.

    As Justice Alito wrote in dissent, “If this is a sign of how religious liberty claims will be treated in the years ahead, those who value religious freedom have cause for great concern.”
