The National Organization for Marriage, a nonprofit group that advocates for traditional marriage, is expecting tens of thousands of people from across the United States to join their June "March for Marriage" in Washington to "show the world that the marriage debate isn't over."
Christopher Plante, spokesman for NOM, told The Christian Post that the June 19 march is being held in part "to show the world, the media, members of Congress and the Supreme Court that the marriage debate is not over."
"There is a huge groundswell of popular support, popular belief in traditional marriage. And despite what the polls may say, the reality is the majority of Americans believe marriage is between one man and one woman," said Plante. more >>
The announced departure of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius marks the end of a chapter of American history. Sibelius, aside from President Obama, has been the most prominent public face on the signature initiative of the Obama administration – the Affordable Health Care Act.
The question before Americans today is whether we are concluding the first chapter of a dream come true or whether this may be the beginning of the end of a nightmare.
I'm hoping Americans will wake up and see Obamacare for the nightmare it is. more >>
Fox News host and best-selling author Bill O'Reilly believes that children should learn Judeo-Christian principles in public schools.
O'Reilly explained his views during an interview with Matt Lauer on NBC's "TODAY" show Thursday, saying, "Kids need to know what Judeo-Christian tradition is, because that's what all of our laws are based on. That's what the country's philosophy is based on. ... And because that's what forged the Constitution."
"Kids, if they live in a secular home and go to public school, don't know anything about Jesus. … Our Constitution was forged on Judeo-Christian philosophy and tradition," he reiterated. more >>

New York — United States Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx says if the nation's troubled transportation system, which is currently "teetering on the edge of insolvency" isn't fixed quickly, 700,000 people could soon be out of work.
Speaking at the national convention of Al Sharpton's National Action Network in New York City Thursday, Foxx highlighted how important a good and sustainable transportation infrastructure is to economic growth and access, before pointing to the dilemma.
"Our transportation system is teetering on the edge of insolvency. As soon as August to September of this year, the major funding source for our highway systems, our transit systems, the Highway Trust Fund is going to go belly-up," said Foxx. "And the reason for that is because it's gas tax dependent and people are riding more fuel-efficient cars and there's not enough money. We're basically short about $18 billion a year." more >>
David Silverman, president of American Atheists who graduated from Brandeis in 1988, announced that he is withdrawing his support from Brandeis University and its alumni association because the academic institution rescinded its plans to give an honorary degree to controversial social commentator Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
In an open letter on Facebook explaining his actions and reasoning, Silverman said that although he had fond memories of the activism and classes at Brandeis, he felt this history went contrary to the university's decision against Hirsi Ali.
"Today, that pride is gone as Brandeis has caved to religious intolerance masquerading as political correctness and uninvited a valuable voice in the discussion of religion in public life," wrote Silverman. more >>
