Social Conservative Review - June 15, 2017
June 15, 2017 from Family Research Council
Dear Friends, In Matthew 5:21-22, Jesus says, “You have heard it was said to your ancestors, You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment. But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment.” This passage in Scripture comes to mind in reflecting on the tragic incident that occurred yesterday in Alexandria, Va., in which a murderous gunman attempted to kill members of Congress and their aides on a baseball field, wounding five. It’s important to ponder and take heed of this vital teaching of Christ in the volatile times in which we live. Christ is teaching us that when we harbor malicious thoughts about other people in our hea

An Open Letter to Bernie Sanders from a Vermont Pastor
June 12, 2017 from Family Research Council
Dear Senator Sanders, I am a pastor in Manchester Center, Vermont, so I am one of your constituents. And I am concerned. You and I both know that Vermont has added to the rich history of religious freedom in our great country. I live 25 minutes from the Old First Church in Bennington, where the following plaque is placed on the side of the historic church building: “First Church in Vermont dedicated to separation of church and state. Congregation founded by those seeking religious freedom.” As you probably know, First Church was “gathered” on December 3, 1762, the first Protestant congregation in the New H

Dear Friends, Self-professed atheists like Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins often say that Christianity is an absurd religion that believes in things like “talking snakes.” While it’s lamentable that Maher and Dawkins feel the need to take Scripture passages out of context to prop up straw man arguments, I often wonder what they would say in response to profound Christian witness that gets to the heart of why our faith is the Truth. I came across an example of this kind of witness recently from Fr. Peter John Cameron, O.P., who makes this penetrating insight about the nature of our God and how He conforms to the natural desires of our hearts: If you look into your heart and

May 15, 2017 from Family Research Council
Dear Friends, A few weeks ago, an event occurred on my morning commute to work that has stuck with me ever since. As I was exiting the metro car at my station stop, I noticed a man standing to the side of the door outside of the car, waiting for myself and other passengers to exit before entering. His head was turned to his right, angrily glowering at a woman who was also outside of the car waiting to get on. As I stepped out of the car, I overhead the woman say in a low, even, and slightly nervous tone, “You heard me.” I instantly knew that she must have just uttered an insult, and was doubling down on it. As I walked out of the metro station, I felt a churning clump in the pit

Predictably, there has been a rash of hit-pieces in the mainstream media over the last few days targeting Charmaine Yoest, President Trump’s pick to serve as assistant secretary of public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services. Most of the attacks leveled at Yoest, who formerly worked here at FRC, focus on the fact that she served as president of Americans United for Life, a national pro-life advocacy group.
