Schwarzwalder: Boy Scouts Issue Marches On

FRC’s Senior Vice President, Rob Schwarzwalder, was quoted in the New York Times regarding the Boy Scouts decision to possibly change its policy that requires members and leaders to be “morally straight.” The leaked announcement from the Boy Scouts of America, as Schwarzwalder states, has caused the “emergence of widespread grass-roots movement…It’s something that has animated many people because of their religious convictions and concerns about their children.”

Media Ignores Terrorism Towards Conservatives on Capitol Soil

Ken Klukowski, FRC’s Director for Religious Liberty, recently wrote an article for Breitbart News about how the media ignored the trial of Floyd Corkins, the man who attempted a mass murder at the FRC headquarters in D.C. Klukowski poses the question:

“How many stories have you seen on the broadcast networks or cable networks—any of the networks—about the first-ever domestic terrorism conviction in our nation’s capital? Is same-sex marriage such a politically correct issue that no one wants to inform the public when a gay-rights political activist shoots someone in an attempted mass-murder?”

Lincoln: Is His Legacy Still Alive?

FRC’s Senior Fellows, Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison, highlight Lincoln’s legacy and compare it to that of the current White House resident in their recent article featured in American Thinker. Blackwell and Morrison point out that though both former senators stood in Springfield, Illinois, one firmly stood to free innocent human lives. The other firmly stood against protecting innocent children who survived abortion assault and were left in closets to die. As Blackwell and Morrison state:

“We will continue to pray for President Obama, but today we honor the Lincoln Legacy. He spoke clearly to us when he said the Founders believed: "Nothing stamped in the divine image was sent into the world to be trod upon." We must continue respectfully to confront President Obama with this question: "Mr. President: Are not unborn children so stamped?"’

On the Resignation of Pope Benedict XVI

Cathy Ruse, FRC's Senior Fellow for Legal Studies, commended Pope Benedict XVI for his service in her recent interview on CNBC. Ruse also wrote a recent article about Pope Benedict as well as the choosing of the next pope in Human Events. Ruse stated that,

“One thing is certain: The next pope will be in the mold of John Paul II and Benedict XVI since every one of the cardinals who will do the choosing was chosen for this role by them.  And whoever that is, everyone – Protestant, Catholic, and Jew alike – will care.”
