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 […]

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   I’m glad were on the same page when it comes to calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to ask probing questions of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan at the upcoming confirmation hearings.   All we’ve seen so far […]

Questions for Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   The nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens comes as no surprise.  She was the leading candidate for weeks and in remarks announcing the nomination, President Obama said Kagan is […]

Supreme Court Retirement: Here We Go Again

posted by Jay Sekulow

  Barry, the announcement was expected and as Justice John Paul Stevens notified the White House that he is stepping down after this term at the age of 90 – and more than 30 years at the high court – […]

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” […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Supreme Court Nominee Named

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, today’s nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor  to replace Justice David Souter on the Supreme Court of the United States will generate serious debate about the issue of judicial activism on the nation’s highest court. As we learn about Judge […]

From Graduation, to Supreme Court Vacancy

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, the big news, of course, is the reported retirement of Supreme Court Justice David Souter.  The news comes just 102 days into the Obama Administration and sets the stage for President Obama to move to put his liberal stamp on […]

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, […]

Homeland Insecurity: Conservatives Shouldn’t Worry About U.S. Report On Extremists

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I can’t believe you have gotten roped into complaining about the Department of Homeland Security’s recent assessment of potential terrorist threats from right-wing groups. You are joining Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and “columnist” Michelle Malkin in […]

A New Generation of Leadership

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, rest assured there is a new and vibrant generation of conservative Christians that are already engaging what are called the “Culture Wars.”  I personally have never liked that phraseology. This is really a clash of world views. There is […]

Think the “Culture Wars” Are Over? I Have a Bridge in Brooklyn For Sale

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Maybe  James Dobson was just having a particularly bad day.  As the top Religious Right leader gave a “farewell speech” to the staff at Focus On the Family he noted that “we are awash in evil” and that “humanly speaking, […]

Fear Not: One World Government Not Coming

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I’m happy to talk about your fears about creeping internationalism and the end of United States sovereignty.  But wait!  You provide no evidence that this administration wants to give up America’s constitutional form of government or even its currency (that fear […]

U.S. Sovereignty at Risk With Obama?

posted by Jay Sekulow

In this space, we talk about a variety of issues – mostly along ‘church/state’ lines.  Barry, I am concerned about something I see developing in our ‘state’ – in our nation – and I want to see what you think. […]

Dungy Meets Standards Set by Obama White House

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I’m surprised you vigorously oppose former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy joining the White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.  You cite his religious beliefs about marriage.  Would you have a different opinion if Dungy supported same-sex […]

More Unwelcome News On Obama Faith-Based Front

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Dan Gilgoff is now reporting that former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy has been invited to join the White House “Advisory Panel On Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships”.  This unnecessary body already has plenty of people on it who are way off […]

National Day of Prayer is Constitutional

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I’m sure you’re aware of a lawsuit filed by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) in Wisconsin challenging the constitutionality of a 1988 federal law giving the President the authority to designate the first Thursday in May as a […]

Tell Rush Limbaugh: His Friends Are Leading Us To Socialism!

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Nevada Senator Jon Ensign has leaped into the debate over the District of Columbia’s school voucher program with both feet.  Although not usually known in Congress for his interest in education, his interest in ideology is apparent justification for attempting […]

Obama Keeps Abortion – Not Choice – Promises

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I am stunned by your defense of President Obama’s pro-abortion policies.   You say that you’re ‘delighted’ that he’s making good on his promises in this area.  Come on, Barry.  Level with me.  You know this is not about choice […]

Obama Keeps Choice Promises: Why Any Surprise?

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I am incredulous about your continued “shock” that pro-choice Presidential candidate Barack Obama is now pro-choice President Barack Obama. The President made it clear throughout the campaign that he was pro-choice: noting that he would overturn the Mexico City […]

A Pro-Abortion Presidential Push

posted by Jay Sekulow

President Obama has wasted little time since taking office staking out positions that are hostile to protecting human life.   Within days of taking the oath of office, President Obama signed an Executive Order repealing what’s been called the “Mexico […]

No Silence Broken: Just Position Restated

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, in spite of your best efforts to create the Fairness Doctrine as a huge issue, you have failed.  The White House did not “break” any silence.  It just reiterated what President Obama had said when he was “candidate” Obama: […]

White House Breaks Silence on Fairness Doctrine

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, what’s with the White House when it comes to the Fairness Doctrine? First, silence from the White House on whether President Obama supports a return to this troubling regulatory measure.  White House spokesman Robert Gibbs repeatedly has refused to […]

Fairness Doctrine – By Any Other Name – Still Unfair

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, it’s impossible to ignore the ongoing discussion and renewed calls from members of Congress to bring back the Fairness Doctrine or what many are saying will be legislation that will go by a different name. 

Jay, You’re Condemning Obama For Being Obama

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, you may be the only person in America who is shocked (yes,shocked) that President Obama is making good on campaign promises. During thecampaign, Obama was open about his pro-choice views on abortion. He vowed tooverturn the regressive (and frankly […]

What Will President Obama Do Next?

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I don’t think anyone really has a clue on how President Obama plans to move forward with his faith-based efforts.  I am not sure the even the President knows at this point.

Don’t Force Christian High Schools to Change Curriculum

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, there’s another troubling development in the education world – this one is not about stimulus funds for higher education facilities – this centers on high school curriculum and focuses directly on what’s being taught in many Christian high schools […]

Religious Discrimination – Not Economic Stimulus

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, as debate unfolds on the economic stimulus package on Capitol Hill, we’ve already seen some of the ‘spending’ priorities of this new Administration and Congress.   President Obama wasted no time in issuing an Executive Order clearing the way for […]

Leave Talk Radio Alone

posted by Jay Sekulow

With each passing day comes more concern about conservative talk radio.  Now, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition targeting Rush Limbaugh.  That comes just days after President Obama told Republican lawmakers that “they can’t just listen to […]

SHOCKER! REMOVING GAG RULE UPSETS VATICAN

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I knew you would not be happy, Jay, that President Obama did what he had always said he would do–remove the restriction against even discussing abortion by groups which are engaged in international family planning and receive any tax dollars.  […]

A Pro-Abortion President

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, it’s clear that this President is working quickly to overturn many of the policies of his predecessor.  But, what is most troubling in the flurry of Executive Orders issued by President Obama in the hours of his new presidency, […]

WARREN GETS NO PASS FROM ME

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I’m sorry, Jay, but I can’t say “amen” to your characterization of Rick Warren’s participation in the inaugural ceremony.  Although once you pass the threshold of having two Protestant ministers, it is not unexpected that one or both (in this […]

Intriguing Inaugural Invocation

posted by Jay Sekulow

After much speculation, Rick Warren, pastor of the Saddleback Church, delivered the invocation at the inaugural ceremony – a prayer that was heartfelt and true to his faith tradition.   Warren offered an inclusive prayer for a nation comprised of […]

Inaugural Prayer Opponents Are Right In Principle

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

I realize, Jay, you are eager to draw me into this case because your side is likely to win. My position has been consistent: Michael Newdow and all of the other plaintiffs in this suit are right on principle, but […]

Under the Magnifying Glass

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, you are right on target.  It is certainly up to President-elect Obama and his wife to make the best decision possible for the education of their two daughters.  This is a private, family matter. But, as we both know, […]

OBAMA REJECTS RIDICULOUS SCHOOL ARGUMENTS

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

According to the Washington Post, President-elect Obama has decided to send his two daughters to the Sidwell Friends School.  This is a wise decision.  Earlier in the week both the Post and syndicated columnist Cal Thomas had editorialized that he […]

A Short Honeymoon

posted by Jay Sekulow

President-Elect Obama is rapidly moving to get up to speed on the many issues he is facing.  It’s clear that the economy, which was by far the key issue in the election, is also front-and-center in this post-election/pre-inauguration window.  And, […]

RELIGIOUS RIGHT: ONE DOOR SHUTS; FIFTY OPEN

Before I suggest that readers take a look at a more detailed post-election document, I wanted to note something about your last post.  If prayer is to be taken seriously, we have to know what the praying is for.  I’m […]

Pray For Those in Authority

EVERYBODY IS DOING IT

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
