What churches Can and Cannot Do in Politics

Each day the news demonstrates that there is an ongoing battle over religious liberties and our ability to live out our faith in our daily lives. And the willingness to speak out on issues of the day is critical when it comes to matters of government officials and public policies that impact our faith, our families and our values on a daily basis. There is a lot of misinformation about what churches are allowed to do in the political arena – misinformation that is spread by liberals and groups that don’t want to see conservative people of faith speak out and have an impact. They attempt to scare pastors from participating by claiming that, if they get involved, their church …

Value and Faith Voters Cannot Be Ignored and Expected to Vote for GOP Candidates

Since Ronald Reagan’s sweeping victory in the 1980 presidential election, conservatives and people of faith have been the largest and most reliable voting block for the Republican Party. The GOP’s longtime commitment to traditional values with a platform that doesn’t mind placing those values front and center has made it the natural political home for people of faith. In the last two elections however, faith voters haven’t voted for the Republican candidate in the numbers or percentages that were typical in prior election cycles. As a result, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus made a commitment last year not only engage non-traditional voters for our party, but also to re-engage our party’s base. In the Chairman’s words, “we can’t just parachute in …

Standing for our religious liberties

The first provision of the First Amendment to our Constitution concerns freedom of religion. It is indeed our “first freedom.” But that freedom is under assault today as never before in the history of our country, as liberal elites – whether in the bureaucracy or the judiciary – are steadily pushing the government to infringe on our religious liberties and demanding that religious Americans leave their faith at the door of their place of worship. Whether it’s the Hobby Lobby case or the actions taken against the Catholic Church’s Little Sisters of the Poor, we seem to see new examples every day that underline that trend. The government is trying to compel faith-related institutions, as well as believing individuals and …

Help us build a movement!

Fellow Conservative, Will you help build an army of conservative pro-faith activists to make the difference in the coming elections? In just a few short months, Americans will go to the polls again and cast their ballots in one of the most important elections in our lifetime.

That’s why we launched the “GOP Faith” campaign. Our goal is to identify 100,000 pro-faith conservatives who will take the pledge to …
