Subscribe to RSS - Religious Distributions, Events and Evangelism during the School Day

Numerous federal court rulings have made it clear that public schools cannot sponsor the distribution of religious literature or allow outside groups to come onto the campus to pass out religious material. Public schools must not sponsor events by evangelistic groups or give these organizations access to students. Allowing outside groups to preach to students during the school day is a serious violation of parental rights.

AU Helps Put A Freeze On The Latest Version Of Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’

Surely if a temporary ban on immigration by Muslims violates the Constitution, an indefinite ban should too. That’s exactly what Judge Theodore D. Chuang found in IAAB v.

Religious Freedom And Social Justice Are Not In Conflict

On Monday, a group of conservative Christian women gathered for a prayer rally at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to criticize feminist activists and church-state separation. 

“For years, the feminists lied to us,” author Lisa Bevere said during the event, as the crowd cheered, according to The Washington Post. “They said for us to be powerful as women, we needed to act like men.”

In The Wake Of Tragedy, Pat Robertson Unleashes A Raft Of Thoughtless Comments

Americans were horrified by the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas. It’s still unclear what motivated Stephen Paddock to unleash such carnage, and that’s leading some people to engage in speculation.

Some ideas we can easily discount. TV preacher Pat Robertson, for example, has blamed the incident on a lack of respect for President Donald Trump, a thoughtless move that does little more than shift the blame away from the killer.
