Greg-Abbott

The Revolutionary War with Great Britain lasted from April 19, 1775 to September 3, 1783. At the end of the war, our fledgling nation was ruled by the Articles of Confederation which had been ratified on March 1, 1781. The Founding Fathers realized that they needed a better ruling document and called for a Constitutional …

When our Founding Fathers established the US Constitution, they realized the need to spell out certain rights not specified in the Constitution, so they penned ten amendments to be ratified and attached to the governing document of the newly formed nation. For two centuries, the ten amendments, known as the Bill of Rights were considered …

Just how many lies have the Obama administration told Congress and the American people about what happened at the US State Department compound in Benghazi, Libya? First they lied to us by telling us the attack was prompted by an unknown garage-made anti-Islamic film that virtually no one had ever seen. A short time later …

Here we go again. If only Republicans would dump the social issues, you know, like opposing killing unborn babies and being against the idea that people of the same sex should marry. That’s the view of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. “My opponent started focusing on that I was pro-choice,” said Giuliani. “Donald …

Kim Davis took an oath to uphold the Kentucky Constitution which forbids same-sex marriage. As a result of her refusal, Judge David Bunning put her in jail until she complies. There are many Christians who are arguing that Christians must submit in obedience to every government decree. Here’s the question: can a biblical case be …

Kim Davis has been jailed for following the Kentucky constitution to which she took an oath to uphold. An appointed judge said she had no right to defy the Supreme Court’s ruling, a ruling that did not nullify the Kentucky constitution on the subject of same-sex marriage. Unfortunately, and something that is becoming all too …

Jefferson portrait

Did our founders, after drafting a Declaration of Independence, fighting a war with England, and then sitting down to pen a national governing document (the Constitution) put in that document the right of a majority of federal judges to make laws for the entire nation? Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis is testing the claim …

Five of the first ten amendments to the US Constitution are a problem for Barack Obama and his socialist following. What socialist government wants its citizens to have freedom of speech, religion, the right to bear arms, protection against illegal search and seizure and the freedom of self-incrimination? Honoring states’ rights as stated in the …

To conceive of America apart from religious liberty is almost unthinkable. But recent events have shown us the unthinkable may be right around the corner, with long-established religious rights being brushed away — despite weak judicial assurances to the contrary. I think it’s worthwhile to take a look at how important Christian liberty was to …

In 1819, Jefferson spoke out against judicial activism, saying: “The Constitution is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please.” Recently we have seen judicial activism on steroids at the Supreme Court. That is especially true in their hubris-laden decision to …

Churches have always had a say in who they would marry. Many churches won’t marry non-members or allow non-members to use their facilities. Churches often require a series of counseling sessions. Pastors often question prospective married couples about church membership, lifestyle choices, whether they are marrying within the Christian faith, are they presently “living in …

death of America

On Friday, the US Supreme Court ruled that homosexual marriage is a constitutional right and that states do not have the right to prevent same-sex sinners from legally marrying. The first error in the high court’s ruling is that they just violated the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution which reads: “The powers not …
