  • Voting Your Conscience Before God (October 26, 2016)

    With early voting underway in Tennessee, Christians have a stewardship responsibility before God to exercise wisely the authority our vote represents, for that authority, like all authority, comes from God.

    Sometimes, our choices, like the one Rahab in the Bible had to make, are not easy, and some might even say represent the lesser of two evils.

    But failing to manage the authority that’s been entrusted to us by not voting may be the greater evil, like that of the steward who buried the money he was given and was called wicked by his master in the parable of the talents.

    Search the Word, study the candidates, and pray; then vote your conscience before God. And as you do, remember the words of the Apostle John, “Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.”

  • The Power of Your Vote This Election (October 19, 2016)

    Christian voters are divided. Some can’t understand how Christians could vote for a person who is immoral as Donald Trump, while other Christians can’t understand why Christians would not vote for Trump if it means fighting back against an administration that will support abortion and erosion of the biblical understanding of family. 

    Whatever your opinion, it is important for us, as Christians, to realize how we have gotten to this point. Over the last several decades, the Christian church has largely been absent from debates in the public square, which has allowed forces opposed to Christian beliefs to control the narrative as well as culture itself.

    You can start being a force for good by choosing great men and women to represent you in our state House and Senate. Go to TNVoterGuide.org to find out more about your state legislative candidates.

  • Did Obergefell Rewrite All of Family Law? (October 12, 2016)

    In 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Court started the journey toward gay marriage when it became the first court to hold that gay marriage was constitutionally required. The U. S. Supreme Court finished the journey last June in the Obergefell case.

    Now Massachusetts has said that Obergefell requires state courts to apply statutes written to prove the paternity of a father to a lesbian whose partner had a child by artificial insemination.

    Is this the beginning of yet another journey, this one to re-write, under the guise of “interpretation,” the rest of a state’s family law? Perhaps so, because FACT is involved in a similar case in Knoxville, trying to prevent our state’s courts from doing what the Massachusetts Supreme Court did.

    We’ll let you know more after the case is decided later this month, so stay tuned.

  • How Far Will Obergefell Go? (October 5, 2016)

    When the Supreme Court said last summer that states had to license same-sex marriages if they licensed opposite sex marriages, many wondered whether the Court’s rationale would be judicially extended to other areas of state family law in order to make those laws fit with the “new” definition of marriage.

    We are about to find out. A divorce between two women in Knoxville has put at issue the constitutionality of a custody statute that expressly applies to only a husband and wife. Is that restriction now unconstitutional? Must that statute now be judicially re-written to apply to two wives?

    Fifty three legislators are asking to join the lawsuit to defend the constitutionality of the law, and last week the Tennessee Attorney General decided to join the lawsuit, too. By the end of October we’ll know, so stay tuned.

  • State Money Talks (September 28, 2016)

    The conflict brewing between Tennessee’s most liberal cities, Nashville and Memphis, and the state Legislature is coming to a head, and the Legislature will need to address it soon.

    These cities are following the new liberal tactic of passing ordinances that violate state law, forcing conservatives to bring expensive lawsuits in front of liberal judges to try to uphold the state law.

    There is a simple solution. If local governments want to be autonomous, let them do so with their own money. The state provides a large share of state tax money to local governments, and if local governments don’t want to abide by state law, then perhaps they can abide with less state money.

    Money talks, and if the state money walks, perhaps local governments will begin to respect the laws passed by our state Legislature.
