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 – […]

President Obama is the “Angel of Death”? Give me a break!

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I think you would agree with me that businesses have the right to hire and fire as they see fit. Fox News, per usual, has manufactured a controversy here, and that’s all there is to it. But since you […]

A Season of Change?

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, You?   One of “Satan’s imps” ???    No way.  More like a….witty, fearless – yet misguided – member of the Religious Left.  Barry, no one is trying to redefine those precious terms of “liberty” and “freedom.”  Why is it when […]

Legal Cloud Does Not Stop National Day of Prayer

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   Even with a flawed federal district court decision declaring the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional, prayer events are taking place coast-to-coast on this National Day of Prayer – as they should.   With this year’s event got more […]

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 […]

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 […]

SCOTUS Speculation Intensifies

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,  It didn’t take long for the speculation to begin regarding President Obama’s nominee to replace the retiring Justice Stevens. In fact, the ‘name game’ is in high gear with a variety of ‘short lists’ circulating like this one from […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Keep the Faith & the Ten Commandments Poster

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   I’m surprised you are not applauding the first year record of President Obama’s White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.  The White House touts its first year accomplishments and says it has “brought people together across religious lines” […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Health Care Speech and the Truth About Abortion Coverage

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I don’t know which polls you are looking at, but it appears that there was a double digit growth in support of the President’s basic approach after he spoke to the joint session of Congress.  He also told the truth […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sotomayor Convinces 4/9 of Supreme Court She Is Right

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, give me a break.  Four of the nine Justices of the Supreme Court yesterday reached the same conclusion that Judge Sonia Sotomayor did as a judge on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.  The other five reached an alternative […]

Time to Turn Up the Heat on Iran

posted by Jay Sekulow

It is a compelling scene – thousands in the streets of Iran – calling for freedom – fighting for free and fair elections.  And, Barry, what is most troubling – but not necessarily surprising – is the Iranian regime’s reaction […]

Obama Opens Door – Now Action Must Follow

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, President Obama opened the door with a brief mention of religious freedom in his 55-minute speech to the Arab world. To his credit, he did bring up the importance of religious freedom, saying:  “Freedom of religion is central to […]

Probably Not the Best Time For Lectures In Mideast

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

As you know, Jay, I am not unsympathetic to the plight of the many of the people you represent around the world.  There are strong human rights arguments to be made in asylum cases in Europe–and frankly strong ones to […]

Obama Should Raise Issue of Religious Persecution

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I’ve just returned from Israel where we have opened an office in Jerusalem.  In addition to our work at the European Court of Human Rights in France, we are working out of Jerusalem on a number of cases involving […]

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 […]

Rest Easy, Barry, Don’t Expect ‘Excessive Outreach’ to Right on Supreme Court Pick

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, don’t worry about it.  I really don’t think we’re going to see what you label as ‘excessive outreach’ to the Right by President Obama regarding his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter. Sure, the President is […]

Shocking News! President May Pick Justice Who Agrees With Him

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I have been amused over the weekend by the “sky is falling” rhetoric of the Right about the impending retirement of David Souter from the Supreme Court. Curiously, Jay, many of your colleagues concede that they don’t like Souter’s record, […]

With Obama, The Criticism is About Substance, Not Style

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I really don’t understand what you are talking about.  Much of what President Obama is being criticized for revolves around substantive issues – not style.  And, it’s hardly “nitpicking” as you suggest.  A lot of troubling developments have occurred […]

Carp, Carp, Carp: Must The Right Always Fish For Reasons To Attack Obama?

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I’ve been out in California a few days and I’m constantly hearing people ask: “Why doesn’t the Right ever give President Obama a break?”  What they mean is that literally every day the hosts of Fox News, the Drudge Report, […]
