    Bryan Fischer: The National Popular Vote: a perfectly horrendous idea

    The National Popular Vote is a perfectly horrendous idea that ought to be strangled in the cradle. It violates virtually every principle of the republican form of government bequeathed to us by the Founders. It represents a violent lurch toward pure democracy, which the Founders abhorred.The NPV has now been adopted by 11 states, with New York being the latest to sign on just this week. NPV provides that, if enough states sign compacts with other states, every state which belongs to the compact will automatically award all of its electoral votes to whichever presidential candidate wins the nationwide popular vote. New York just added its 29 electoral votes to the plan, bringing the total number of electoral votes controlled by NPV to 165, or 61 percent of the total needed for the plan to take effect.

    Bryan Fischer: 16th Amendment: IRS has no legal authority to tax your wages or salary

    The current tax code is now four million words long, more than four times longer than the collected works of Shakespeare, and six to seven times longer than the Bible. It requires 25 volumes to contain it, and takes up nine feet of shelf space. According to Forbes, it takes Americans over six billion hours to comply with its filing requirements. That’s the equivalent of 8,758 lifetimes. In people years, not dog years.This monstrosity is based entirely on the 16th Amendment, which authorizes Congress “to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived.”

    Bryan Fischer: Have the Southern Baptists surrendered in the fight to protect natural marriage?

    Russell Moore is the president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. He is the face and the voice of the SBC on matters of public policy. His role is thus of enormous importance since the SBC is the largest Protestant denomination in America, after the Catholic Church.According to a piece by Byron York in the Washington Examiner -Evangelical leader shows how GOP can finesse gay marriage - Moore has made public statements that beg for clarification and possible correction.

    Bryan Fischer: Breaking the power of federal tyranny, one elected official at a time

    America’s latest heroine is Robin Bartlett Frazier. She staged her own Tea Party event last Thursday by tossing an out-of-control federal judge overboard like a trunk of tea by taking a stand for religious liberty. May her tribe increase. Ms. Frazier, a commissioner in Maryland’s Carroll County, defied a flatly unconstitutional injunction issued by U.S. District Court judge William D. Quarles, Jr., who ordered last Tuesday that no prayer opening a Carroll County commission meeting could mention “the name of a specific deity.”

    Bryan Fischer: An apology is not enough - World Vision needs to clean house

    World Vision, in one of the most abrupt turnarounds in modern history, has done a complete about-face on its embrace of sodomy-based marriage. Less than 48 hours after saying the organization was just fine hiring couples who were in same-sex “marriages,” the organization has repudiated that stance, acknowledging that the board “made a mistake,” and admitting they had failed “to be consistent with World Vision U.S.’s commitment to the traditional understanding of Biblical marriage.”

    Bryan Fischer: Did World Vision sell its soul to Obama for filthy lucre?

    World Vision has made the tragically misguided decision to embrace sodomy. This once-evangelical organization has now abandoned any pretense of being guided and governed by biblical principle, and now intends to welcome into their ranks those whose “marriages” are based on acts which are an abomination in the eyes of God.According to president Richard Stearns, World Vision’s new policy “will not exclude someone from employment if they are in a legal same-sex marriage." This of course flagrantly denies the moral reality that such unions aren’t “marriages” at all but shabby counterfeits of the real thing.

    Bryan Fischer: New York Times wants Supreme Court to impose its religious views on Hobby Lobby

    The New York Times blithely and blindly contradicts itself in its column arguing for a flatly immoral and unconstitutional ruling from the Supreme Court against Hobby Lobby. Oral arguments will be heard tomorrow on whether Hobby Lobby’s owners, against their will, their conscience and their religious convictions, can be forced to provide abortion-causing drugs to their employees at their own expense.

    Bryan Fischer: Rand Paul is not the guy for 2016 but Ted Cruz might be

    Rand Paul is an appealing candidate to many conservatives. But he has a fatal libertarian streak on social issues that will make his candidacy in 2016 a non-starter for convictional conservatives.According to Breitbart.com, Paul is urging the Republican party to “soften on social issues.” But this is the one thing it cannot do and remain the Republican party.

    Bryan Fischer: The Democrats' choice: repeal ObamaCare or impeach Obama

    According to the Wall Street Journal, President Obama’s brigade of buffoons running his signature health care bill has waived the penalty for not buying health insurance. Yes, you read that right. The individual mandate, which we were told by Obama was the key to making the whole thing work, has been dropped out of ObamaCare until 2016.

    Bryan Fischer: The battle over gay rights is THE battle, there is no other

    America’s future will be determined by one thing and one thing only: whether the forces of light or darkness will win the battle over special rights based on sexually deviant behavior.This is for the simple reason that America must choose between homosexuality and religious freedom, between sodomy and liberty. There is no middle ground. As columnist Matt Lewis put it, the clash is a “zero-sum” game. Somebody wins and somebody else loses.

    Bryan Fischer: Our last, best hope to restore the Republic: Governor Rick Perry

    Gov. Rick Perry of Texas may be our last, best hope of reclaiming America and returning it to its constitutional foundations. Gov. Perry can do this by ignoring or better yet flatly defying federal Judge Orlando L. Garcia’s blatantly unconstitutional, immoral and illegal ruling overturning the Texas marriage amendment.

    Bryan Fischer: Jim Crow is back: NFL to Arizona: you can’t sit at our lunch counter

    We’re hearing a lot about the reinstatement of segregationist Jim Crow laws these days, as homosexual activists fling this accusation at the state of Arizona. They argue that SB1062, a bill which simply protects religious liberty in the Copper State, is tantamount to the reinstatement of discriminatory laws.As so often is the case, the situation is actually the reverse. It is in fact the bullies and bigots of Big Gay who are reinstating Jim Crow laws, only this time the marginalized and segregated Americans are Christian businessmen. Faith-driven vendors are being told that unless they submit to the owners of the liberal plantation, they will be punished by their homosexualized overlords and sent to the margins of society.

    Bryan Fischer: Refugee status should be reserved for Christians fleeing Muslim persecution

    There are hundreds, even thousands, of Syrian Muslim "refugees" who are now in New Jersey, none of whom have been vetted for possible jihadists sympathies. They have no intention of assimilating to American life and culture but rather have sought out existing Muslim neighborhoods in which to live.It is my position that the only Syrian refugees we should allow to come to our shores are Christians who are fleeing Muslim persecution in their native land. There are plenty of those, as Muslims have destroyed homes, churches and entire villages just because they belong to followers of Christ. But President Obama’s administration routinely denies refuge to the victims of Islam.

    Bryan Fischer: Arizona law does not cause discrimination, it PREVENTS it

    Arizona’s new religious liberty bill is exactly that - a bill that protects the religious liberty of faith-driven businessmen in the Copper State. Lawmakers there are seeking to prevent the truly un-American and shameful things that have happened in New Mexico, Oregon and Colorado where wedding vendors are facing state-imposed penalties, including possible jail time, for simply running their businesses according to deeply-held religious values.

    Bryan Fischer: Andy Stanley wants Christians to keep Christ out of business

    The Kansas legislature just recently considered a bill (it passed the Kansas House but failed in the Senate) which would have protected the free exercise of religion for faith-driven businessmen in the public square, as well as their constitutional rights to freedom of speech and association. The bill would have protected Christian businessmen from the bullying and bigotry that bakers, florists and photographers have experienced at the hands of Big Gay in states such as Oregon, Washington and New Mexico.

    Bryan Fischer: Defeating Darwin in four easy steps

    What was most instructive about Tuesday night’s debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye over the issue of origins was Nye’s blanket admission of total, abject ignorance on the most important questions of the evening.Where did the atoms that made up the Big Bang come from? Nye has no idea. Where did man’s consciousness come from? Nye has no idea. How can matter produce life? Nye has absolutely no idea. This surely is all one needs to know to recognize the utter bankruptcy of the theory of evolution.

    Bryan Fischer: Our last, best hope: conservative governors who will uphold the Constitution

    Most observant Americans have given up on Washington. Liberals in Washington are clearly driven by an anti-American and anti-constitutional governing philosophy, and conservatives in Washington, with rare exceptions, don’t have the masculine strength or nerve to do anything about it. Today, a whole boatload of King Georges sit in the Oval Office, the Supreme Court, and virtually every bureaucracy in Washington, D.C. Their dictatorial and totalitarian control over every aspect of American life is squeezing the life right out of us.

    Bryan Fischer: Constitution does not require taxpayer funding of public defenders

    (It should go without saying that in what follows, I am speaking only for myself. Perhaps these comments will spark a useful public dialogue over an important issue that has, in my judgment, been ignored for too long.) The Constitution ensures criminal defendants access to legal counsel. It does not require taxpayers to pay for it. The Jody Arias retrial is back in the news, as taxpayers who have already been soaked to the tune of $2 million are getting ready to take another bath to fund a defense for this murderess.

    Bryan Fischer: Protestantism the greatest force for good in modern history

    The United States was founded by Protestants. At the time of the founding, 98.4% of the population of the original 13 states were Christians who followed, whether loosely or devoutly, one branch or another of the Protestant faith. Of the 55 signers of the Constitution, 52 were Protestants.One can say without fear of contradiction that America was built by Protestants. It was the Protestant faith with its emphasis on the priesthood of all believers that gave America its rugged individualism. It was the Protestant work ethic which soon made the United States the economic powerhouse of the world. It was the Protestant commitment to the Great Commission (“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations”) that made America the greatest sending nation in the history of the world.

    Bryan Fischer: The need of the hour: a governor who will defy judiciary on marriage

    For the fourth time in recent weeks, an activist, tyrannical, unelected, unaccountable judge has overturned the express will of the people regarding the institution of marriage. The most recent victims are the citizens of Oklahoma, who elevated protection for natural marriage to their state constitution with an astonishing 76% of the vote.

    Bryan Fischer: Big Business and the push for amnesty: it’s all about welfare

    It’s no secret that the Chamber of Commerce is about to spend $50 million to defeat Tea Party candidates in GOP primaries all across the fruited plain. The reason? Tea Party folks are dead set for a secure border and dead set against amnesty. Corporate America is all about amnesty and ramping up the flood of low-skill workers across our borders. Why? They want cheap labor. They need workers willing to work for minimum wage.

    Bryan Fischer: Idol to Satan highlights importance of word “religion” in First Amendment

    This day was inevitable. The judicially activist mangling of the First Amendment has finally and inexorably brought its chickens home to roost. The Satanic Temple is demanding that Oklahoma erect an idol of Satan right next to a brand new Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the state capitol. The sculpture will be 7 feet tall and will represent the demon god Baphomet, who is in the form of a “bearded, goat-headed, winged hominid with horns.” Satan will be seated on a throne, and have a lap on which children may sit “for inspiration and contemplation.”

    Bryan Fischer: No evolutionist can be trusted with political power

    Pew Research recently conducted a poll, examining the mindset of the American people with regard to the evolution/creation issue. One finding in particular stands out: despite 100 years of relentless brainwashing and indoctrination, just 32% of the American people believe that man evolved through entirely natural processes, with no direction or assistance from God.

    Bryan Fischer: Conservative response to Phil: Carpe Diem

    Phil Robertson has created a moment of historic opportunity for evangelicals and social conservatives to reverse our cultural slide into sexual deviancy and begin turning our ship of state back toward sexual normalcy. The only question that remains: will evangelicals and other like-minded Americans seize the moment? Will we capture the energy Phil Robertson has generated and draw on that energy to confront the entrenched fortresses of error and sexual abnormality that right now dominate our social landscape?

    Bryan Fischer: It is impossible for polygamy to be constitutional

    It’s impossible for polygamy to be constitutional in the United States. Historically, legally and constitutionally impossible.This is for the simple reason that polygamy was illegal everywhere in the United States when the Constitution was enacted. Not only was it illegal, it was a capital crime. The punishment for polygamy was death everywhere in the nation in 1787.

    Bryan Fischer: An evangelical conservative sizes up the 2016 field

    Evangelical conservatives, in general, want candidates who are strong in their Christian faith as a prerequisite for further consideration.Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio and Rick Santorum clear that hurdle with room to spare. Chris Christie, on the other hand, does not. He’s openly stated that his Christian faith has no impact, for instance, on his stance toward homosexuality. So Christie is out.

    Bryan Fischer: Who's to blame for Hiroshima?

    Saturday was the grim anniversary of the day that will live in infamy, when Japan launched an unprovoked attack on Pearl Harbor, with its death toll of 2,388 American lives.This, of course, propelled the United States into World War II, and the battle against the Axis powers and their totalitarian ambitions for the world led to the loss of over 400,000 American lives by the time that chore was done. The total casualty count for the United States, by the end of the war, was over 1 million killed or wounded.

    Bryan Fischer: Gay blood donations: political correctness can kill

    Under pressure from demanding homosexual activists, the FDA is once again considering lifting the ban on homosexual blood donations. Males have, in the interest of public health, been banned from donating blood if they have had sex even one solitary time with another male since 1977. This is not a matter of bigotry, it’s a matter of health. It’s not bigotry, it’s medical science. It’s not bigotry, it’s compassion, compassion for innocent Americans like hemophiliacs who could get a death sentence through blood given by a sexually deviant donor.

    Bryan Fischer: We must stand with Israel even though our president does not

    By all sober accounts, John Kerry’s deal with Iran is a diplomatic disaster, since it does not require Iran to give up anything substantial while we in turn lift sanctions and unfreeze $8 billion in Iranian assets. Meanwhile, American pastor Saeed Abedini continues to rot in a hellhole of an Iranian prison. This deal represents, in John Bolton’s words, “abject surrender” on the part of the United States.
