If It Were Really All About Equality

by Steve MacDonald October 12, 2016

If Liberals and Progressives really are all about equality then ask them, Why don’t they criticize Islam the way they criticize Christianity? If they are incapable of equal criticism of Islam why is it not then appropriate to give Christianity the same quarter? Reply: Stutter, stutter, blah, blah, you hate women, racist.

by Skip August 17, 2015

After all, freedom of expression is a Constitutionally protected Right.  And given that, here’s what was found: According to Caddell Associates, which conducted the poll, “[t]here is an overwhelming sense on the part of American voters that they want to find common ground in order to protect both the expression of religious freedom and the […]

Well, my post about Houston Mayor Annise Parker and the razing of two churches caught someone’s eyeballs

by Skip August 7, 2015

Well, my post about Houston Mayor Annise Parker and the razing of two churches caught someone’s eyeballs (which was here: Is lesbian Houston Mayor Annise Parker going after Christianity – again?).  Who’da thunk it – that a small state blog here in NH would attract the attention of a left-of-center political heavy weight from Houston […]

“Hillary…would use force to repress religious teachings and practice.”

by Skip August 6, 2015

Hillary: Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” From a piece: How We, as POWs, Responded to Communists Threatening Our Religious Liberty.  Now read the quote from Hillary above again, and then read the closing from that piece […]

Standing Tall For Religious Freedom – Bobby Jindal

by Mike May 20, 2015

A pen and a phone? He got the phone call that a religious freedom bill had been squashed in committee by the Democrats, and immediately took out his pen to sign an Exec Order which accomplished the same thing! The legislature proposed, and the governor disposed – how does it feel to have the boot […]

WMUR’s CloseUp – Lindsey Graham on Religious Freedom (psst….)

by Skip April 17, 2015

 So, a church would be able to control its facilities – how big of Lindsey Graham on his definition of Religious Freedom. “But nobody doing business should be allowed to discriminate against another American.  At the end of the day, you’re trying to protect religious freedom, the right to be able to follow your conscience […]

Why do Establishment Republicans have a “but” when it comes to Religious Freedom? Eh, Gov. Pataki?

by Skip April 5, 2015

Gov Pataki on WMUR’s Closeup (4/5): I agree completely with the idea that we have to protect peoples’ religious freedom.  There’s no question about that.  I quietly am, in my own way, deeply religious and I don’t want someone to tell me that I can’t practice my religion as I see fit.  But on the […]

Religious Freedom – it isn’t just for Christian bakers, florists, or photographers

by Skip March 31, 2015

Bringing a hog for slaughter to a Muslim butcher, bringing shellfish to a Jewish fisherman for shucking, or this Yes, this is not a religious example at all but certainly one of conscious.  Again I ask – which is of more importance in the law: an explicit Constitutional Right to Freedom for those of faith, […]

Of COURSE gay Houston Mayor Anise Parker doesn’t want it to become a debate on 1st Amendment Religious Freedom

by Skip October 31, 2014

That is the ENTIRE linchpin – to unhook the morality of their lifestyle from the Bible based morality that presents (to them) a huge barrier.  Houston Mayor Anise Parker does not want that juxtaposition to happen after the utter stupidity of believing that she could steamroll Houston’s Christian clergy over their resistance to her “Bathroom Bill” […]

Scott Brown: running away from questions AGAIN (on US Supreme Court decision about Hobby Lobby / Religious Freedom)?

by Skip July 18, 2014

He runs away from debates.  He avoids forums.  When he is answering questions, from what I have heard and seen, he’s quite glib in starting to answer and then zig-zagging away off into tangents and not answering the questions directly.  But really, to go hide out in a bathroom to avoid a reporter asking a […]

After the U.S. Senate voted down a bill that would attempt to reverse the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, Governor Hassan thought she’d add her 2 cents in a ridiculous facebook post: “Ensuring that women and their families can make their own health care and family planning decisions is critical to their economic well-being and the […]

With Big Government assuming more and more, we need to review this:

by Skip January 5, 2014

From whom do our Rights come from, God (or the Deity or Nature’s God) or those running Government? The Framers of our Constitutional Republic reverently assumed the former along with the belief that if God has granted us our Rights, no man or assemblage of men can (or of more importance, should) revoke those Rights […]

S’Preme Court Revives Challenge To Obama Care…

…on religious grounds. S’Preme credit first to Hot Air, whose title I have assumed as my own.  And second, how about a do-over? Liberty University had challenged the law on religious grounds courtesy of the insurance mandate itself, the HHS’ contraceptive mandate,  and the retarded left-wing notion that the government can prohibit any and every […]

Why is the New Hampshire Democrat Party attacking religious freedom in the State of New Hampshire?  From the state party chair, to Democrat candidates for governor, right down to elected members, Planned Parenthood, and EMILY’s list lobbyists.   The entire morally bankrupt Democrat party machine has a laser-like focus on denying you another first amendment […]

NRA – a very timid step, but are they finally getting the big picture??

As an former NRA member, I still get their NRA-ILA alerts and I am always figuring that this is the indication of what they are thinking concerning the “big” picture.  After all, a couple of years now when the Dems were pushing the DISCLOSE act that would have restricted Free Speech, the NRA was silent.  […]
