Call to action: Oregon judge villainized for faith

Oregon Catalyst - Sat, 2015-10-10 05:00

Oregon Family Council

Respected Circuit Judge, Vance Day is the subject of a “judicial fitness” investigation that is bordering on the bizarre. It stems from the decision to recuse himself from officiating future marriages, man-woman or same-sex. He felt it was an impartial solution to honor his faith beliefs following Oregon’s legalization of same-sex marriage. As a result, critics have launched an assault on Judge Day with outlandish assertions that include honoring Adolf Hitler in a US Veteran’s Memorial.

Read about the story here and here.

At Oregon Family Council we believe in the importance of continuing to have a Christian voice in our political and legal system. The investigation into Vance Day is completely uncalled for, and only shows the extreme prejudice against people of faith and their values.

We urge you to contact the Commission on Judicial Fitness and Disability and voice support for Vance Day, and call for religious accommodations for people of faith serving in public office.

The Pope’s Visit, Reconsidered

TownHall - Fri, 2015-10-09 21:00
To say that Pope Franciss visit to the U.S. drew a lot of media attention would be an understatement. The coverage was round-the-clock. Yet as a lifelong cradle Catholic, educated by Jesuits, I couldnt help noticing what a remarkably incomplete, if not misleading, portrait emerged of the Holy Father. 2015-10-09T00:01:00-04:00 2015-10-10T04:00:07Z Ed Feulner

California Conservatives: Fighting and Winning In Huntington Park

TownHall - Fri, 2015-10-09 21:00
In Huntington Park, CA, one of the bluest districts in the state of California, but with some ruby red patriotism bursting through, one of the city councilmembers, Valentin Amezquita, the only one to vote against appointing two illegal aliens to city commissions, has opened up to Donald Trumps immigration plan. I may not like Trump, but I do like that Democrats are considering Republican candidates. 2015-10-09T00:01:00-04:00 2015-10-10T04:00:07Z Arthur Schaper

It Ain't Funny, Hillary

TownHall - Fri, 2015-10-09 21:00
Hillary then moved away from raunchiness to scripted satire on the season's premier of "Saturday Night Live." Hillary was a kibitzing bartender named Val, talking to SNL star Kate McKinnon, who reprised her impersonation of Hillary. But the scenario was less satirical than self-serving, with both Hillary characters oozing banter about how great Hillary was/is. 2015-10-09T00:01:00-04:00 2015-10-10T04:00:07Z Suzanne Fields
