It’d be laughable if the consequences weren’t so deadly. Yesterday, during Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention, during 61 different speeches given from the podium in Philadelphia, ISIS and radical jihadist terrorism was not mentioned at all – not one reference. As Christians are slaughtered, silence. As suicide bombers detonate, no response. PolitiFact has more details : Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving... read more

The release of both the Democrat and Republican parties’ platforms is thought-provoking. This post notes the similarities and differences of the respective platforms when it comes to the issue of support for the military and national security. For example, both platforms strongly support Veterans and their care. Bipartisan support for the men and women who have served our country is encouraging and laudable. Both parties call for the defeat of ISIS, though both platforms lack detail as to how... read more

Did you know there’s a little-known amendment that has been restricting the First Amendment rights of churches and faith-based organizations for more than 60 years? After it was mentioned during last week’s Republican National Convention, many people have been discussing this so-called Johnson Amendment. We at the ACLJ have been speaking out against it for years as we stand up for religious liberty. Section 501(c)(3) of our nation’s tax code gives tax-exempt status to a church as long as it... read more

Since October 2015, the United States House of Representatives’ Select Investigative Panel on the Transfer of Fetal Tissue has been investigating Big Abortion. The Panel was created soon after the release of a number of undercover investigative videos by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). These videos uncovered extensive evidence in the abortion industry of a willingness to engage in, and actual engagement in, criminal and unethical practices with regard to the sale of fetal tissue (read: read more

The Obama Administration has done one thing consistently – disappoint the American people. As we’ve said before, a “virus of deception and unethical corruption has permeated the entire Obama Administration.” That’s why we’re taking aggressive legal action. One of the most recent unethical acts of corruption occurred in late June when Attorney General Loretta Lynch had a private (and secret) meeting with former President Bill Clinton, whose wife – former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton – was... read more

Stop Planned Parenthood and Big Abortion

OfficialACLJ1469133431896Pro Life

Planned Parenthood has harvested body parts from butchered babies. The largest abortion business in America has murdered unborn children, and then sold their organs. It’s startling and disgusting in scope. A senior Planned Parenthood abortionist was caught on camera detailing how they “crush” the...

The Obama Administration’s continuing surrender to lawless Executive overreach is predictable, disappointing, and a threat to the rule of law. Last month, the United States Supreme Court slapped down the Administration’s lawless Executive action unilaterally rewriting our nation’s immigration laws despite President Obama’s admission that he is not a king. At the same time, evidence has emerged that the Obama Administration hid from Congress and the American people key information about a secret... read more

“My purpose in appearing before you today is to assert that, in my judgment, [ISIS] is responsible for genocide .” – Secretary of State John Kerry As beings created in the image of God, it is only right that we share His compassion for the oppressed and His desire for justice. In fact, as Christians we are called to “ do justice ” and to “ satisfy the desire of the afflicted .” Around the world, there are thousands and thousands of afflicted people. One of the most poignant examples of... read more

Recently, Christian human rights attorney, Willie Kimani, his client, and their cab driver were kidnapped and murdered in Kenya. Four corrupt police officers have just been charged with murder. But justice is not yet served. These crimes were not random. Their murders were an attempt to silence those who sought to hold corrupt public officials accountable in Kenya. Kimani, an attorney for the Christian organization International Justice Mission, had joined a case in which an innocent man was... read more

One of the biggest myths in popular culture is that big businesses are conservative. To the contrary, many huge corporations and the biggest law firms have now become huge influencers for progressivism and pressure engines for the political Left, as they have demonstrated in a variety of contexts . One recent example is the Supreme Court abortion case, Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt , which involved abortionists' constitutional challenge to two commonsense Texas abortion safety... read more
