By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty | No Comments

 

As you’ve probably noticed, the radical left is doing everything in its power to derail President Trump’s agenda to the detriment of our nation.  They have pledged to resist any and all of his conservative initiatives, not because of the merits of the effort, but just because they do not like him.

Well, as they resist, the thousands of members of Concerned Women for America will persist in the principles that have made us the freest, most prosperous nation in history.

These principles of faith, family and freedom are the foundation of our Democratic Republic and we must fight to protect them.  So, join Concerned Women for America today on our Persistence Summer campaign.

Together, trusting God, we will persevere!


Now is not the time to resist; it is the time to persist.  This summer, find out how you can support a positive agenda that protects our Biblical values. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org today. If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.

 

Capitol Hill Brief — More Good News

Though there is much more work to be done, the Trump Administration has been receptive to our efforts for more focused attention on religious freedom internationally, and especially the tragic situation for Christians around the world.

The appointment of Kristina Arriaga as Vice Chair to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom is an encouraging development.  Kristina Arriaga was the Executive Director of the Becket Fund for Religious Freedom and a great friend of Concerned Women for America.

We worked with her and Becket on many religious liberty landmark cases, including Hosanna Tabor and the Hobby Lobby cases.  Her commitment to the protection of religious liberty for all is unquestionable and we applaud the Trump Administration for her appointment.

I told you yesterday about Vice President Mike Pence’s encouraging address before the World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians recently.  Here is a bit more of what he said about the Trump Administration’s commitment to this problem:

“The suffering of Christians in the Middle East has stirred America to act, and it brings me here today. President Trump … [has] made it clear that America will stand by followers of Christ in this hour of need.  Our administration is fully committed in bringing relief and comfort to believers not only across the Middle East but across the world. This President knows the terrorists will not stop until we stop them. And under President Donald Trump, we will stop them.”

The church in America is slowly rising up to face the challenge of our persecuted brethren around the world, especially in the Middle East.

A recent gathering sponsored by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association brought together hundreds of church leaders from around the world gathered for the first ever World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians.

The summit brought together about 600 Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox leaders and persecution victims from more than 130 countries. Vice President Mike Pence took the time to address them.

He said, “Our Administration is fully committed in bringing relief and comfort to believers not only across the Middle East but across the world.”

Capitol Hill Brief — A Daunting Challenge

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty | No Comments

 

Let me tell you why we continue to raise awareness for the critical situation of our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world.

The issue of Christian persecution and religious liberty around the world is not an easy situation, as we might think. There are no simple solutions. That’s why it can be easily forgotten.

The unique cultural, religious and political realities that exert pressure on all sides are daunting.

But the enormity of the problem should not paralyze us. The United States must continue to lead on the issue of religious freedom around the world, for we have been given that burden by the blessings we have received from Almighty God.

Where much is given, much is required.

Capitol Hill Brief — Advocating for Brothers and Sisters

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty | No Comments

 

Did you know that Christians are the most persecuted faith in the world today?

The rise of Islamic terror groups like Boko Haram and ISIS is exacerbating the situation to critical levels.

According to Pew Research Center, Christians endure physical harassment and social discrimination in more than 125 countries.

We’ve discussed before the horrible attacks against Coptic Christians in Egypt. The New York Times reported that in a recent attack gunmen ordered them to recite the Islamic declaration of faith and, when the Christians refused, they opened fire.

These are our brothers and sisters in Christ.  We must redouble our efforts in prayer and lifting up their plea before the Trump Administration.

Capitol Hill Brief — Persist in the Fight for Religious Freedom

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty | No Comments

 

Every day in the news, we hear stories about Christians been denied their constitutional right to the free exercise of religion. Now more than ever, we must persist in the fight for religious liberty as a foundational principle for the blessings we enjoy as a country.

Together we can truly make a difference.  The confirmation of Justice Gorsuch is just one of the latest examples. But the fight is so much broader.

It starts at the local and state level, in your school board or local council and continues all the way to Washington.

That’s why we must all be engaged.

So, don’t let the summer lull distract you from what’s important.  Join CWA’s Persistent Summer and make a difference.


Join us on the front lines of our “Persistent Summer.” Join as we persist to bring Biblical, constitutional values back to our nation. Together, we’ll fight for our family, faith, and freedom.

Capitol Hill Brief — Independence Day

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty | No Comments

 

241 years ago, on July 4, 1776, after Congress voted for a complete separation from Great Britain, our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence declaring these beautiful self-evident truths:

“That all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Today, we continue to be the longest on-going Constitutional Republic in the history of the world.

And that is no accident.  John Adams said it best as he meditated on what they had done.  He said this day “ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to Almighty God.”

Capitol Hill Brief — The Bottom Line

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty | No Comments

 

All week we’ve highlighted the shameful, unconstitutional religious test that Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont would like to use to ban all Christians from public service.

To be clear, according to Bernie Sanders, if you believe in John 3:16, affirming that we must believe in Jesus Christ to be saved, you are a bigot that should not be allowed to work in government.

Sen. Sanders calls Christians “Islamophobic” for this, but even Ismail Royer, who works at the Center for Islam and Religious Freedom in Washington, D.C., repudiated Sen. Sanders in a piece titled, “Bernie’s Relativism Test Is Bad for Muslims and All Religious Believers.”

He’s right.  Sen. Sanders’ views are misguided and actually dangerous.


Should your Christian faith disqualify you from government service? Senator Bernie Sanders thinks so. He attacked one man for his Biblical beliefs during a nomination hearing. Tell Sen. Sanders to respect our constitutional rights at www.CapitolHillBrief.org. If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.
