President Obama: Does He Get It?

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   I would not use that label to identify the President.  I will say, however, that President Obama continues to embrace and promote pro-abortion policies that many Americans strongly disagree with.   Take the outcome of the election – […]

Health Care

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, Let’s be real here. Do you really think these lawsuits have a single winning argument? And, frankly, since when do state attorneys general have standing in matters like this? Frankly, I think opponents of health care reform are getting […]

From Congress to the Courts

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, It wasn’t want the American people wanted – but it’s what they got.  President Obama – with a last minute deal to secure the necessary votes – agreed to issue an Executive Order on the abortion funding issue in […]

In Texas & Washington, Elections Do Matter

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, Let’s not forget that in Texas, the boot was on the other foot, so to speak, for many years – where conservatives were the minority on the Texas Board of Education.    One conservative board member said the majority’s conservative […]

Putting Health Care on Hold as Curriculum Questions Arise

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I agree the polls on President’s health care reform plan are universally poor and I understand why most Americans believe the plan is not good for the economy and that we need to start over – an option that […]

Healthcare Substance More Important Than Style

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

It is not clear at this point how, if at all, the President’s health care plan will be enacted. Polls on this topic are universally poor.  So, let’s try to simplify this. Jay, do you agree or disagree with these […]

Summit Reveals Real Goal in Health Care Debate

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   It was almost too much to watch.  Not that it was compelling television – it wasn’t.  Just the sheer amount of time (nearly eight hours) devoted to what amounted to nothing more than a photo-op for President Obama […]

A Photo-Op for Health Care?

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   Time to revisit health care reform and I am hopeful you will agree with me that this week’s Presidential Health Care Summit is shaping up to be nothing more than a photo opportunity for President Obama and the […]

Transparency Remains Elusive

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   I agree with you on the fact that most Americans don’t like government ‘secrecy’ and in many respects the vote in Massachusetts clearly reflected a total disgust with the way Washington is operating – especially with health care […]

Why There Are 59 Democrats In the Senate

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I was over on Capitol Hill the day after the Senate election in Massachusetts. Democrats didn’t appear to be in a very good mood. With just a few days distance from the election, I think that there is only one […]

Seismic Shift in the Senate

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   We can continue our discussion on faith-based initiatives, but who would have thought that the Senate seat held for decades by Democrat stalwart Sen. Edward Kennedy would go to the Republicans?   The election of Senator Scott Brown […]

Keep Health Care Debate Open and Abortion-Free

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   It’s really not important about what I want in the final version of health care.  What’s important is what the American people want – and a clear majority doesn’t want federal health care funds to be used for […]

Abortion: When will you ever be satisfied?

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, Will your side ever be happy? Here, Sen. Ben Nelson has dramatically expanded anti-choice legislation – to the disappointment of pro-choice advocates – and yet, you are still complaining. As Cecile B. Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of […]

Health Care & Abortion: Part 2

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   We do have a rich and diverse nation and it is true that our country is full of a variety of faith traditions.  That’s what makes America so unique.   Unfortunately, our government leaders don’t always listen to […]

Abortion Funding …to be continued – Up Next: A God-free Capitol Visitor Center?

posted by Jay Sekulow

The run-up to debate in the Senate on health care and abortion is already producing some interesting comments.  The Senate bill offered by Senate Majority Leader Reid does not include any pro-life language like that of the Stupak-Pitts Amendment which […]

There Is Still Time to Save Health Care Reform From the Catholic Bishops

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, You asked me: “Would you have criticized the Catholic Church if it had OPPOSED the Stupak/Pitts Amendment and it failed to clear the House?” Here’s my answer:  Of course not.  I think everyone should support the Constitution. In this […]

Congrats, Not Criticism, for the Catholic Church

posted by Jay Sekulow

There’s nothing wrong with the Catholic Church – or other churches – addressing the issue of abortion.  As you know, this country has a rich and welcomed history of turning to churches and houses of worship during the debate of […]

Why Push Catholic Moral Theology?

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay,   I’d like to turn our focus away from Planned Parenthood and on to the Catholic Bishops.   As I’m sure you know, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops persuaded Congress nearly single-handedly this weekend to add an amendment […]

Halloween Continued…And Planned Parenthood

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Little did I know when I started writing about Halloween that new “research” by the Christian Broadcasting Network uncovered that witches were contaminating Halloween candy and allowing demons to be ingested by “Trick or Treaters.”  But here it is. Now […]

Did We Get Rid of Good Medical Care…And Death Panels

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I have just one comment on the cross controversy at the Supreme Court.  In my view, the Court will probably end up not resolving the core issue of the legitimacy of the land tranfer and resolve this either on standing […]

My Own Family Values

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Sadly, I had to miss this year’s edition of the Religious Right’s “family values” festival — the Values Voters Summit here in Washington.  I was engaging in my own celebration of family values by participating in my son’s wedding out […]

Concerns About the Baucus Health Care Bill

posted by Jay Sekulow

The bill  introduced to reform health care by Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) has splintered the Democrats and so far has no support among Republicans.  As reported earlier, Senators Grassley and Enzi, in fact, have expressed concerns about the abortion provisions.  […]

No Abortion Diversion, Just the Facts

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, even as another health care plan is being introduced into Congress, there’s a continuing – and a very real – concern about the issue of abortion. Senators Michael Enzi of Wyoming and Charles Grassley of Iowa have expressed their […]

More Thoughts On the Abortion Diversion

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

On Thursday, I blogged defending the position that the current version of the health care reform bill moving through the House does not cover abortion. I’ve tried to respond to some of the posted responses already. I’d also like to […]

President Obama Misses Critical Opportunity on Health Care

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, unfortunately President Obama squandered a prime-time audience and a Congressional address to do very little to move the ball forward regarding efforts to reform our health care system.    President Obama is losing support with the American people on […]

Post-Kennedy, What Next?

posted by Jay Sekulow

It did not take long for the media and politicos to start speculating about what the death of Senator Kennedy will mean to the current debate on health care and other vital issues.   Just hours after his death, a […]

Outrage In Proportion

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I like to think that my outrage is in relative proportion to the outrage that generated it in the first place.  I have never been known to give any politician a “pass” nor to overstate the gravity of a politician’s anti-separation errors. […]

Where’s the Outrage?

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I’m pleased to see that you brought up President Obama’s use of religion during his conference call designed to drum up additional support among religious Americans for his health care plan.  I’m glad that you’re concerned, but disappointed that […]

God’s Chosen Healthcare Reform?

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Yesterday at 5 o’clock Eastern time, I joined the President and 130,000 of his closest friends on a conference call about health care.  Earlier in the day, the President had a similar phone call with about 1,000 rabbis, initiated by […]

Health Care Disinformation

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

The White House flagging program was both less useful and less sinister than its advocates and opponents, respectively, believed.  One can understand the frustration that the White House has about the astonishing level of lies, misinformation and nonsense being promoted by the […]

White House ‘Flagging’ Operation Disabled

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, it looks like the White House got the message:  its email ‘flagging’ operation appears to have been disabled.   As I reported to you last week, the White House launched in early August what can only be described as […]

Silencing the Critics

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, there’s a troubling pattern developing as the White House and Congressional leadership embark on a campaign to silence their critics – especially when it comes to concerns about health care.   Example One:  Last week, in an official White […]

No Agreement on Health Care; How About Faith-Based Volunteerism?

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I know we won’t agree on the abortion/health care issue – but it’s worth noting that we have heard from more than 70,000 Americans (more than 60,000 online) who are demanding that Congress include an exclusion on abortion services to […]

Abortion Mandate in Health Care is Not “Choice”

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I disagree that “any sensible health care reform” is going to have to cover, as you call it “reproductive health care,” or as I would say, “abortion.”  Americans do not want their federal dollars paying for abortions.  Let me […]

All Women Deserve Health Care with the Right to Choose

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, any sensible health care reform plan is going to have to cover women’s reproductive health care more completely and equitably than the current system. We need to listen to those in the medical field as to what is the […]

No Mandated Abortion Coverage in National Health Care

posted by Jay Sekulow

In an effort to revamp the nation’s health care system, there’s a troubling development underway in the legislative process  Congress is considering health care legislation that would identify abortion as a health ‘benefit’ and mandate coverage of abortion services in […]
