    Turning Back the Clock: The Plot to Dismantle the Establishment Clause

    Over the last few decades, a religious movement has gained widespread political power with the stated intent of turning back the clock by dismantling the Establishment Clause, which requires separation of church and state.

  • November Election a "Referendum on Your Religion" Trump warns Evangelical leaders

    November Election a "Referendum on Your Religion" Trump warns Evangelical leaders

    The President’s threat that the November election will be a “referendum on your religion” is troubling because it assumes that the success of Christianity is dependent on the result of a political vote. The fact that some very influential Christian leaders are buying into this argument is even more disturbing.

  • Love: The Driving Force of Freedom

    Love: The Driving Force of Freedom

    By Rob and Jacquie Randall – Because God is love and desires a universe where love reigns, where love is the motive behind our behavior, behind our worship, because love is the motive behind His actions, there needs to be absolute freedom in worship and religion.

  • John McCain: "No Freedom without Freedom of Religion"

    John McCain: "No Freedom without Freedom of Religion"

    "Choosing one’s faith is the most personal of choices, a matter of individual conscience. That is why we cherish it as part of our Bill of Rights. That is why Franklin Roosevelt listed as one of his four freedoms the right of everyone to worship God in his own way, everywhere in the world. And that is why people fleeing religious persecution continue to find safety in our country. All people must be free to worship as they please, or not to worship at all. It is a simple truth: There is no freedom without the freedom of religion."
