    NEW YORK, September 25 (C-Fam) World leaders broke out into applause 27 times during the Pope’s address to the UN General Assembly today, including when he called for the defense of the “right to life,” and called the family the “primary cell of any social development.” Pro-life and pro-family advocates welcomed the speech as an improvement upon the more subtle references to their causes during the Pope’s address to the U.S. Congress. Culture of Life President Robert Royal called the UN talk a powerful and explicit defense of human life and natural marriage even though the words “abortion” and “homosexuality”...

    Ames claimed that on the morning she returned from a two-month maternity leave in July 2010, the company refused to let her use its lactation rooms because its policy required mothers to complete paperwork seeking security access and wait three days for processing. She had been unaware of that requirement. A company nurse suggested she use a wellness room that was occupied at the time, but also cautioned that doing so might expose her milk to germs. Ames said she was in pain while waiting for that room to be vacated, when her supervisor informed her that she would be...

    (Reuters) - The Arkansas Supreme Court on Friday halted the issuing of marriage licenses to same-sex couples in the first and only state in the U.S. South to allow gay marriage. About 500 gay and lesbian couples have married since a state judge last week overturned the Arkansas ban on same-sex unions. The state attorney general's office had requested the stay to stop counties from issuing licenses and also appealed the decision that struck down the state's gay marriage ban. The Supreme Court issued the stay in a brief, unsigned order, without elaborating on its reasoning. Pulaski County Circuit Judge...

    OTTAWA, May 12, 2014 ( – “How do you sell an abortion? In the US it’s very simple: You do it through sex education,” former abortion clinic owner Carol Everett told participants at the Rose Dinner following the National March for Life on Thursday in Ottawa. Everett, who ran a chain of four abortion clinics in Texas from 1977-1983 — where an estimated 35,000 unborn children were aborted before her dramatic conversion and departure from the industry — told about 430 participants at the dinner that she had a goal of becoming a millionaire by selling abortions to teenage girls....

    HOLLYWOOD, CA, May 9, 2014 ( – The media and entertainment industry must end its intolerance of Christians who believe in the sanctity of life and marriage or risk alienating an enormous part of the viewing public, according to a certified brand specialist. Chris Stone, the founder of Faith Driven Consumer, has launched a new online campaign encouraging HGTV to #FlipThisDecision, after the home improvement network chose to cancel a new reality show after a left-wing website “exposed” its hosts' pro-life, pro-family views.

    GRANDVILLE, MI, May 12, 2014 ( – A woman peacefully holding a sign outside a Michigan church on Mother's Day was attacked by a pro-gay activist, who threw an ice slushie drink in her face. On Sunday afternoon, Christine Weick stood at an intersection in the city of Grandville with a sign that read, “Thank your mom today for not being gay.” Her message was that Mother's Day is a celebration of children and the natural family, something incompatible with homosexuality. A man later stood by her side and held up a sign supporting homosexuality. As a camera crew from...

    Former Alabama Sen. Jeremiah A. Denton Jr., a prisoner of war for more than seven years in North Vietnam, died on Friday in Virginia Beach. Mr. Denton was 89 years old. His son, Jim Denton, told The Washington Post, which first reported the news, that his father died of a heart ailment. Mr. Denton, a retired U.S. Rear Admiral, was shot down over the city of Thanh Hoa in Vietnam in 1965 and captured while leading a bombing mission. He later wrote a book about his experiences. Mr. Denton grabbed national attention in 1966 when he was forced to give...

    These days there aren't too many big pro-family victories to celebrate. But Sunday's St. Patrick's Day Parade in South Boston was one of them! It went wonderfully. The organizers stood up to the politicians and the rabid media who tried relentlessly to force them to include overt homosexual activist groups in their traditional Catholic, pro-family parade. And in the end many others stood with them. Labor unions, small businesses, several politicians, and an almost endless procession of military, religious, school, and other groups proudly marched before huge, cheering crowds.

    First Things ^ | 1-17-14 | Filip Mazurczak
    In Hungary, Croatia, and elsewhere in Eastern Europe, a pro-family, pro-life revolution and a rediscovery of Christian roots is occurring. While few in the American media have noticed, this trend should challenge those who simply lament Europe’s moral malaise. Unnoticed in the shadow of a secularized west, religion’s public role has been growing in the east since the collapse of communism. Since taking power in 2010, Prime Minister Viktor Orban—a charismatic veteran of Hungary’s anti-Communist underground—has victoriously stood at the forefront of what Americans call the culture wars. In 2011, Orban’s government ratified a new constitution that defines marriage as...

    At the end of a second week of--what can only be described as--an abysmal public relations failure, Arts & Entertainment Television revealed something very intriguing to the watching world. Their foolish action in the non-issue of Phil Robertson, exposed three rather profound lessons that voters and candidates would be very advised to pay attention to. 1. Economics still defeats activism -- Let's face it, the minute the spokespeople from GLAAD began screaming on the other end of the phone, A&E executives got nervous. A lot of A&E programming is aimed at rather promiscuous audiences. GLAAD surely threw around threats of...

Federico Lombardi, Director of the Vatican Press Office published an editorial Saturday responding to mainstream media denunciations of Pope Benedict’s message for World Day of Peace. In the message, released December 14, the pope noted that “serious harm to justice and peace” comes from denying the true principles of respect for life and promotion of the “natural structure of marriage as the union of a man and a woman.” Lombardi noted that the media storm resulted specifically from the pope’s comments on traditional marriage. “This has happened,” he said, “because the pope, in...

    For more than 50 years, the black community has been the wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party. That may be changing. In spite of the overwhelmingly liberal voting patterns of black voters, they are an essentially conservative community. Americans of African descent are more pro-life and pro-family than the average white voter and as conservative on social issues as any white evangelical. Democrats have managed to monopolize the black vote in spite of the vast chasm between the two on social issues. This philosophical difference has become more pronounced in the past 20 years, as liberals have embraced far-left...

    When the General Assembly returns to town all eyes focus on the state budget. Despite media-driven perceptions that the legislature obsesses over "controversial" social issues, economic issues dominate every legislative session, and 2012 will be no exception. Given the new Senate configuration, however, members will be expected to multitask and address other issues that were on the minds of many Virginians when they voted in November. Representing tens of thousands of those voters, The Family Foundation will have several legislative priorities we hope will find success. The first indicator of whether change has come to the state Senate will occur...

What we’re talking about here are different values. We have to Judeo-Christian values that are based on Biblical truth and truth that can be acclaimed and resolved through reason. And, those truths don’t change just because people’s attitudes may change.” He went onto say, “People are allowed...

Ron Paul, for every sensible position, has one that marks him as a kook. Newt Gingrich is being attacked relentlessly, fairly or unfairly, and because of his very mixed record on many issues, the attacks are weakening him. Michelle Bachmann's apparent role as Mitt Romney's attack dog has left her mired in single digits in the polls. So the political class in this country (and I include the elites...

As Mitt Romney's campaign has suffered a startling decline in recent weeks, only to see Newt Gingrich eclipse the former Massachusetts governor's front-runner status, the battle for the Iowa caucuses set for Jan. 3 has become a wide-open race. New survey data prepared for the Perry campaign and shared by a source close within the campaign shows that the Texas governor may be poised to do much better in next month’s Iowa caucuses...

    ...I write to address a political golden calf; the claim that the current agenda calling itself "progressive" is progressive at all. The term implies progress toward something better. The political agenda being offered under the moniker of "progressive" is, in effect, regressive. What is happening is a clash of worldviews which involves competing definitions of human freedom, human flourishing and true progress. The commentator Glen Beck has convinced many that the word "progressive" should be abandoned. He asserts that the word has been so utterly co-opted by George Soros and others with left wing political ideologies that it is irretrievable....

But the pro-family forces pulled it off by 53%-47% -- a major loss for the homosexual lobbies that put an enormous amount of money and energy into this. A short time after the polls closed it became clear that our side would probably win by about six percentage points. After the liberal coastal cities quickly posted their numbers, one could calculate that they...

Social Justice Solidarity High School was supposed to be a safe haven for homosexual youth and would have featured homosexual-friendly curriculum, but the school ran into opposition from both sides. Pro-family advocates opposed the use of taxpayer money to fund the school, while some homosexual groups opposed the school because they claimed it amounted to segregation.

    Amid the euphoria in the recent elections, three shining lights appeared on the horizon that the left is trying hard to ignore or explain away. The lights came as a killjoy to an otherwise festive occasion and raise serious questions about what the victory means. Indeed, if the elections were about a change of direction, the results should reflect the direction of the Culture Wars. No one can deny that the cutting edge of this battle is best represented by the same-sex “marriage” issue. Even more than abortion, same-sex “marriage” is supposedly the wave of a liberal future. And yet...

    Statement by the founder of Free Republic ^ | Nov 11, 2008 | Jim Robinson
    Revising and extending my remarks: We're receiving lots of complaints lately from freshly banned liberals, trolls and malcontents. Well, Free Republic has not changed and will not change. We are NOT "fair and balanced." Never will be. We are biased toward God, country, Life and Liberty. Marriage, family and traditional values. Constitution, inalienable rights, private property and limited government. Small government, small spending, small taxes. National security, national sovereignty, strong defense and secure borders. Individual rights, individual responsibility and self-government. Privacy, individual and family security, self-defense and right to keep and bear arms. Rights to freely exercise our religion, freedom...

    Is anyone interested in trying to get out some last minute voter information to friends, family, etc before the election? If you're still trying to figure out what you can say or do before Tuesday, how about creating an e-mail using the American Family Association non-partisan "Voter Issue Guide" as an attachment and/or in the body of the e-mail along with the below message (or one of your design) and sending it to 20 or more friends, family, etc. Hopefully 10 or so of them will forward it to their friends and family, and on, and on . . ....
  • Palin Pick Causes 'Elation' among Evangelical Leaders

    Wow. Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is John McCain's pick for Vice-President. Folks, this is s close to a game changer as you can get. Let me give you some instant reaction. I can tell you that The Brody File has been talking to multiple sources in the conservative Evangelical community and the reaction has been EXTREMELY POSITIVE. As a matter of fact, I am told that when conservative leaders heard the news this morning at a meeting at the Council for National Policy, one attendee told me that there is "nothing but elation. People are giddy. They are energized and...

  • Parents Rights to Direct Kids' Education Affirmed ( Homeschool Victory )

    08/09/2008 4:43:22 AM PDT · by kellynla · 1 replies · 123+ views ^ | August 08, 2008 | Bob Unruh
    Homeschool supporters and pro-family advocates spent today praising a California court ruling that affirmed the right of parents to direct their children's education, and provide that education if they choose. The upbeat reaction followed the decision announced early today from the 2nd Appellate District in Los Angeles that affirmed the rights of California parents to homeschool. The opinion said state law permits homeschooling "as a species of private school education" but that statutory permission for parents to teach their own children could be "overridden in order to protect the safety of a child who has been declared dependent." The long-awaited...

  • Is movie dud/bomb 'Lions for Lambs' good news for movie 'Bella'

    The antiwar movie Lions for Lambs is definitely a bomb/dud at the boxoffice. More people give this movie a flunking grade than all other grades combined. The opposite of Lions for Lambs is the movie Bella, which is only playing at under 500 theaters -- despite some good numbers from the box office with nothing but a grassroots mode of telling people about the movie. In the case of Lions for Lambs, the liberal left loonies of Hollywood wanted to come up with an Anti-war movie to hurt the conservatives in time for the 2008 Election. Seems they have instead...
  • Advice to young men: Do not marry, do not have children

    ENTERSTAGERIGHT ^ | 11/12/2007 | Stephen Baskerville
    Marriage is a foundation of civilized life. No advanced civilization has ever existed without the married, two-parent family. Those who argue that our civilization needs healthy marriages to survive are not exaggerating. And yet I cannot, in good conscience, urge young men to marry today. For many men (and some women), marriage has become nothing less than a one-way ticket to jail. Even the New York Times has reported on how easily "the divorce court leads to a jail cell," mostly for men. In fact, if I have one urgent piece of practical advice for young men today it is...

    Newsweek ^ | Nov 19, 2007 Issue | Michael Gerson
    There is an old hymn written by Fanny Crosby, sung at generations of camp meetings, which exclaims: "Crown Him! Crown Him! Prophet, and Priest, and King!" Since the emergence of evangelicalism as a cultural force in the 1950s, three approaches to politics, represented by three personalities, have emerged. They are the prophet, the priest and the kingmaker. The prophet has been psychologist James Dobson, who dispenses child-rearing advice on the radio from his Colorado ministry, Focus on the Family. On family issues, Dobson's counsel is moderate and broadly appealing. On politics, his tone sharpens. He rails against compromise on social-conservative...
