Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison Battle the Brennan Nomination
FRC’s Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison discuss how Brennan’s nomination is not in the best interest of the United States and her ally, Israel in their recent article in American Thinker. As Blackwell and Morrison state:

The New Dred Scott Case
FRC’s Senior Vice-President Rob Schwarzwalder compares the story of the Dred Scott case to today’s civil rights issue, the right to life, in his article featured in Religion Today. Schwarzwalder states:
“…racial equality has not been “perfectly attained,” as Lincoln put it. For such attainment all believers should continue to work. Should we not also affirm that God-given rights extend to all persons, regardless of gestational state, size, physical formation, intellectual development, or capacity for self-sustenance? And should we not awaken the morally deaf, humbly but insistently, however much they resist honor’s voice?”
