A Three-Dimensional Case for Masterpiece Cakeshop -- from Justice Kagan, No Less
December 12, 2017 from Family Research Council
I am not generally a fan of liberal Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan. But after reading the entire transcript of the December 5 oral arguments in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case (in which a Christian baker was found guilty by Colorado of discrimination for declining to make a custom wedding cake for a same-sex couple), I thought one question she asked was especially insightful. Most of the discussion on Jack Phillips’ free speech claim centered on a question distilled by Justice Stephen Breyer. Baker

Social Conservative Review - December 1, 2017
December 1, 2017 from Family Research Council
Dear Friends, The great season of Advent, a time of waiting and preparation for Christians in anticipation of Christ’s birth, is about to begin. One beautiful way of reflecting on this season is to think about the first Advent, when an expectant Mary and her husband Joseph awaited the birth of God’s Son. For expectant mothers and soon-to-be fathers, pregnancy is often a time when careful preparations are made around the house for the coming baby—the nursery is rearranged to accommodate cribs and changing tables, diapers and wipes are stockpiled, baby clothes are carefully organized in drawers, linens are freshly washed, etc. In the same way, Christians should spend Advent

November 15, 2017 from Family Research Council
Dear Friends, In our current cultural age of distraction and brokenness, it’s important to remember a fact of life that is often ignored: actions have consequences. This essential principle becomes startlingly obvious in light of FRC’s newest publication, “The Link Between Pornography, Sex Trafficking, and Abortion.” As this paper establishes, a single click of internet pornography by the public indicates to the pornography producer that their material is in demand, which will then fuel the continued production of porn, which then fuels the continued exploitation of women who are often pressured into being film
