Jay: You Are Right

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, you were certainly right to support a student’s right to wear a rosary in spite of a public school’s “anti gang symbol” policy–and indeed to challenge the facial constitutionality of the school’s fundamentally flawed approach to restricting First Amendment […]

The Prayer Decision – Wrong is Wrong: The Appeals Process Moves Forward

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, It’s really the beginning of the end for Judge Crabb’s faulty decision.  The Department of Justice has filed its notice of appeal in the case clearing the way for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to […]

Judge Crabb’s Right, You’re Wrong

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I find your arguments regarding the National Day of Prayer decision highly unpersuasive, and quite frankly, wrong. First, our country does not have “a long history of recognizing the national day of prayer dating back to the late 1700’s,” […]

Prayer Decision Flawed

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, This decision hardly represents a ‘victory’ for religious liberty, as you suggest.  It’s more like a small setback in the ongoing battle to keep groups like Freedom From Religion Foundation from purging all religious references and observances from American […]

A Big Win For Religious Freedom Today

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I just heard some great news: a U.S. District Judge has ruled today that the congressional mandated National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. I’m sure you have already read the decision, but Judge Barbara Crabb rightfully concluded that the […]

Purging Religious References: If at First You Don’t Succeed . . .

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, you pose an interesting question.  I believe that end of life decisions should be made primarily between an individual and that individual’s family and trusted advisors, including spiritual counselors.  An individual should certainly be able to consult his physician, […]

From Pre-Born to Already Born

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Not surprisingly, we have such a different view about fetuses and their alleged “rights” that we haven’t resolved the issue of coverage of “reproductive health” and abortion in the healthcare bill. You would grant constitutional rights to what the Religious […]

Quick Question: Anybody Praying Harder Today?

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I don’t want to get into a big debate here about the value, if any, of prayer.  However, this is the National Day of Prayer, so designated by an act of Congress back in 1952.  President Obama, as required by […]

History No Guide To National Prayer Day

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I don’t see American history helping you much on your bootstrapping argument about past practice and the National Day of Prayer. Remember that Thomas Jefferson actually vetoed day of prayer resolutions as President-and those were usually focused on some […]

Public Calls to Prayer are Legitimate

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, regarding the National Day of Prayer, it is certainly strong evidence that a practice is consistent with the First Amendment if it predates the Amendment and was supported by our Founding Fathers. This is especially true where, as here, […]

More to Come
Barry,   It's hard to believe that we've been debating these constitutional issues for more than two years now in this space.  I have tremendous respect for you and wish you all the best in your new endeavors.   My friend, I'm sure we will continue to square off in other forums - on n

President Obama: Does He Get It?
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 - an unmistakable repudiation of the Preside
