There was a big win at the Supreme Court for churches in California. On today’s Jay Sekulow Live , we discussed the major victory for religious liberty. The Supreme Court of the United States ordered lower courts to reexamine California’s restrictions on indoor services. As you know, in a 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court said that bans on gatherings at places of worship was unconstitutional. They’ve now taken the next step in California as well. It’s an order that came out just this... read more

In a startling decision in Carson v. Makin , the Court of Appeals for the First Circuit upheld the state of Maine’s discrimination against Christian schools. As we reported here , the ACLJ filed an amicus brief with the First Circuit. What made the First Circuit’s decision so surprising was that the court essentially disregarded two controlling decisions from the United States Supreme Court – one that was issued just this past term. Those cases should have spelled the end of Maine’s... read more

Is the COVID-19 vaccine rollout plan prioritizing prisoners before grandparents? On today’s Jay Sekulow Live/The Logan Sekulow Reprogram , we talked about a COVID-19 vaccine rollout report which seems to put prisoners higher on the priority list than the most vulnerable Americans, senior citizens. My co-host Will Haynes explained: What we’re seeing is states are starting to release their plans of how they’re going to distribute the vaccine because they will be working with the companies on... read more

Earlier this week, the ACLJ filed a friend-of-the-court brief with the Supreme Court in Elim Romanian Pentecostal Church v. Pritzker, another case in which state officials have imposed discriminatory restrictions on religious worship in the name of protecting against the Coronavirus. As we have reported here , many states have attempted to fight the Coronavirus pandemic by clamping down on religious worship. One would think that the virus’s favorite victims are the religiously devout. Like so... read more

Georgia is investigating voter fraud in the Senate runoff, well before January 5th. On today’s Jay Sekulow Live/The Logan Sekulow ReProgram , we talked about the breaking news that voter fraud investigations are already beginning in the upcoming Georgia Senate runoff. The Georgia Secretary of State is investigating a third party group that may be sending ballot applications to non-residents. Georgia has a big runoff coming up on January 5th where two U.S. Senate seats are up for grabs. Those... read more

A judge blocks election machines from being reset in three Georgia counties. On today’s Jay Sekulow Live , we discussed the breaking news that a Georgia judge has blocked the erasure of the election machines in three Georgia counties. Those counties had wanted to reset the machines prior to the contest being completed. The judge issued an order affecting three Georgia counties where they were going to reset their election machines. The court ordered those machines cannot be reset yet, have to... read more

Several years ago, we reported on Iceland’s “cure” for Down syndrome: abortion. It is now clear that Denmark has been using the same gruesome method. The Atlantic – a bastion of radical Left ideology and idolatry – posted a brazenly bold declaration of support for eugenics in an article entitled: “ The Last Children of Down Syndrome: Prenatal testing is changing who gets born and who doesn’ t. This is just the beginning. ” The article is a grotesque glorification of the selective elimination of... read more

We’ve been warning the world for years that the deadly violence against Christians in Nigeria is going to spread like wildfire across the entire continent of Africa if it is not put out quickly. Now reports show that violence against Christians is burning far beyond Nigeria’s borders. Recently, we told you how more than 1,200 Nigerian Christians had already been slaughtered by radical Islamic groups such as Boko Haram in just the first six months of 2020. That’s more than were reportedly killed... read more

As we gather with family, or celebrate at a distance due to the ongoing pandemic, to take part in Thanksgiving, let us take a moment to reflect on this American holiday. Most people think of Pilgrims and Native Americans having a feast to celebrate the former’s first corn harvest. But it wasn’t until 168 years later that the first Thanksgiving Proclamation was made, and there was no mention of Pilgrims. There was, however, mention of God. General George Washington declined Cornwallis' terms... read more
