Appeals Court OK’s Legislative Prayer

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, as you know, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit issued an important ruling earlier this week on the constitutionality of prayer before legislative bodies.   In Cobb County, Georgia, a few local taxpayers challenged the County […]

NO SPEECH POLICE : JUST COMMONSENSE

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I know you would like to seethe tax code provision barring endorsement of candidates by non-profitsrepealed.  We have a big difference ofopinion about that.              However, I do not see why you believe thatunder the current law the […]

“Enough With the Speech Police”

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, the examples you cited show precisely why the IRS gag rule should be repealed. When the IRS investigates pro-life churches who speak out in defense of the unborn during the election season, it has a chilling effect on other […]

BIG CHICKEN COMES HOME TO ROOST

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

For the past two years I have been telling my liberal friends, Jay, that the Religious Right is not dead; it is not even sleeping.  I’ve also been alerting them to the fact that the so-called “new evangelicals” may have […]

Of Bishops And Signs: Finding New Ways To Flout Federal Tax Law

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

As noted in my last post, if that school assignment was to draw anything you want (and that’s the end of the story), then you were right to intervene.  I would have done the same if her mother had called […]

Public Schools and the First Amendment

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I never said that the use of a pro-Obama textbook violates anyone’s First Amendment rights, but it does illustrate the importance of parents reviewing their child’s textbooks, getting involved in electing school board members, and being active at school […]

Schools Can Promote Political Ideas, Cannot Promote Religion

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, you are mixing apples and oranges.  Let’s start with the story of the pro-Obama textbook.  Although I must admit I generally treat anything reported in WorldNetDaily like I used to treat the stories of Bat Boy in the now […]

Inside the Classroom: Pro-Obama Textbook?

posted by Jay Sekulow

These are very interesting times.  Especially when it comes to what’s taking place in our public schools.  Barry, I don’t know if you’ve seen the news reports about the controversy in Wisconsin where school officials approved the use of a textbook […]

DIFFERING VIEWS ON ABORTION RAISE BIG QUESTIONS

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

The third Presidential debate did provide another example of the candidates’ views on abortion, but both candidates were unconvincing in their responses to Bob Schieffer’s questions on the matter. On whether a potential nominee’s views on Roe would be a […]

Two Very Different Views on Abortion

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, to address your critique of a McCain supporter’s prayer: people of all faiths are entitled to pray as they see fit. There is nothing wrong with wanting our government leaders, who make decisions that have a profound impact on […]

HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

                Yes, Jay, there are so many issues that should be discussed in the third debate.  I am not clairvoyant (although given the stock market I am thinking of putting up a psychic hotline and trying to get $2.99 per […]

The Final Debate – An Important Opportunity

posted by Jay Sekulow

The fact that tonight represents the final debate between Senators McCain and Obama at Hofstra University on Long Island also marks the final opportunity for these two candidates to address – in a debate format – key issues that have […]

I ACCEPT THE OFFER…AND MAKE ONE

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I’m glad that Michelle Obama wasn’t too offended, but I still think she had every right to be after Senator McCain’s “that one” comment. Of course, the candidates should address both constitutional law and future Supreme Court nominees at the […]

Supreme Court: A Top Priority

posted by Jay Sekulow

While Senator McCain’s comment that you referred to wasn’t the best phrase he could have selected, Michelle Obama has said she was not offended by it, and it should not divert attention away from discussion of the real issues.   […]

BORING…AND EVEN MORE

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I’m not a big fan of the Drudge Report, Jay, but Drudge and company nailed it last night as it posted its response to the second Presidential debate in big bold letters: BORING.  Let’s face it though, plenty of things […]

Candidates Miss Opportunity to Debate Supreme Court Nominations

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I am sure you are as disappointed as I am – not one word mentioned in the 90-minute debate about the importance of judicial nominations or the Supreme Court of the United States.  With the election less than a […]

Agreement on the Importance of Supreme Court Nominations

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I agree that constitutional issues and the importance of Supreme Court nominations should get more coverage during this Presidential campaign. I would like to see this issue discussed at the debate tonight even if Tom Brokaw does not bring […]

MEDIA NOTICES SUPREME COURT: Appointments Temporarily Considered Important

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I’m sure you noticed that the major media has noticed that there is a Supreme Court.  This may have something to do with the fact that this, the first Monday in October, is the opening day of the 2008-2009 […]

Religious Asylum Claims in the United States

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, your discussion of the United States’ record in religious asylum cases brought to mind another case we have worked on. We filed an amici curiae brief with a U.S. district court in Pennsylvania along with our international affiliate in […]

“RELIGULOUS”: REALLY TWO FILMS; ONE NOT SO GOOD

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

OK, Jay, for starters, I did like this Bill Maher film more than I liked Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ”. I saw it last night at a pre-opening screening sponsored by the Washington Area Secular Humanists and the […]

CONGRATULATIONS, JAY: AND I MEAN IT

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

The asylum decision that you just achieved is admirable.  Willfully sending people back to their country of origin if there is credible evidence that persecution will occur there is an affront to international legal principles and virtually any standard of […]

UK Judge Recognizes Grave Threat Posed to Converts from Islam to Christianity

posted by Jay Sekulow

We recently received word of a landmark victory for religious freedom in a case we’re handling in the United Kingdom. We represent a Syrian married couple who are both former Muslims who became evangelical Christians. The husband was training to […]

No Fix Needed in Apples and Oranges Matchup

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I’m glad that you appear to agree with me that there is no obvious basis for believing the Supreme Court would surely rule the current “no partisan politicking” rule unconstitutional.  Of course, I don’t want to see a “fix” of […]
