Dear Friends,Self-professed atheists like Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins often say that Christianity is an absurd religion that believes in things like “talking snakes.” While it’s lamentable that Maher and Dawkins feel the need to take Scripture passages out of context to prop up straw man arguments, I often wonder what they would say in response to profound Christian witness that gets to the heart of why our faith is the Truth.I came across an example of this kind of witness recently from Fr. Peter John Cameron, O.P., who makes this penetrating insight about the nature of our God and how He conforms to the natural desires of our hearts:If you look into your heart and consider the kind of god you deem ideal, what you come up with is Jesus. Given the chance to custom order the divinity who best satisfies the desires of our heart, we would design a deity tender and compassionate, whose joy was to accompany us as a friend in our earthly travails. We would want a god infinitely wise, eager to teach us the things we need to know in order for life to be filled with meaning and joy. We would insist on a god who was merciful and ever swift to forgive our sins… one with a special preference for the poor and the needy. We would want a god of perfect peace, promising happiness, blessing us with hope… one who was extravagantly generous and totally giving of self. We would want a god who was in love with us.But, in fact, when we meet such a man in Jesus Christ, we can’t help but to respond the way people in the Gospel do: Where did this man get all this? Don’t we know his father and mother? Isn’t this the son of the carpenter? Which means that the automatic impulse when we meet Jesus Christ is to presume that what makes him so unique and exceptional—unlike anyone else we have ever met—is his Father.The Son of God exposes our presumption: You know me and also know where I am from. Yet I did not come on my own, but the one who sent me, whom you do not know, is true (Jn 7:28). The more we gaze upon Jesus Christ in all his ineffable goodness, the more we are compelled to cry with Philip, Show us the Father (Jn 14:8). (Excerpted from Magnificat, Vol. 19, No. 4 / June 2017, p. 3-4)May we be forever grateful to our amazing God, who consummately fulfills our truest human desire for a perfect Father.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research Council FRC ArticlesSecretary Mattis: Focus on War-Fighting, Ditch the Social Engineering – Lt.

Dear Friends,Over the past few years, it has been clear that the mainstream media does not have a clue about the real world implications of the attacks on religious liberty that believers, particularly Christians, have been suffering. People like Donald Vander Boon and groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor have been repeatedly bullied by their own government into forced participation of an extreme LGBT and abortion agenda. For too long, the media has either ignored these stories or falsely portrayed believers as the “extremists.”Now, a few cracks in this one-sided façade are starting to appear. A recent New Yorker article about Rod Dreher (author of The Benedict Option) quotes Andrew Sullivan, a Catholic writer who identifies as homosexual: “‘There is simply no way for an orthodox Catholic to embrace same-sex marriage,’ he said. ‘The attempt to conflate that with homophobia is a sign of the unthinking nature of some liberal responses to religion’ … ‘Rod forces you to understand what real pluralism is: actually accepting people with completely different world views than your own.’” The author goes on to restate Rod Dreher’s position: “You [progressives] wouldn’t sue Orthodox Jews or observant Muslims. Please don’t sue us, either.”This echoes the point that believers have been making for years: that “tolerance” and “equality” must apply to those with sincerely held religious beliefs in a free society. In view of the vast number of people and organizations that have been persecuted for their beliefs, the highest levels of government must take action to protect their First Amendment rights. That is why FRC is hosting a special program “Free to Believe: Religious Liberty in the Land of the Free” that will be webcast on May 2nd at 2 pm EDT to discuss the need for positive protections for religious freedom, and steps that can be taken to secure religious liberty for all Americans.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan HartManaging Editor for PublicationsFamily Research Council FRC Articles4 Entertaining Moments During Oral Arguments Over Banning Churches From Public Funds – Travis WeberThe First 100 Days to Securing America – Ken BlackwellStudents for Life Holds #Sockit2PP Rally Outside U.S. Capitol – Joshua DentonWhere Are the “Equal Rights” of Unborn Babies? – Dan Hart Religious LibertyReligious Liberty in the Public SquareProtecting Religious Liberty Safeguards All Children on the Playground Equally – Nathaniel Bruno, Public DiscourseFlorida Teacher Bans Cross Necklaces in Class, Promotes LGBT Day of Silence – Samuel Smith, The Christian PostA popular public school Bible class in West Virginia faces legal challenge – Joe Heim, The Washington PostAt Berkeley, the Mob Wins Again – David French, National ReviewReligious liberty still at risk under Trump – Nick Eicher, WORLDInternational Religious FreedomForgiveness: Muslims Moved as Coptic Christians Do the Unimaginable – Jayson Casper, Christianity TodayNearly One Christian Killed Every Hour for Practicing Faith – Edwin Mora, BreitbartAnti-Christianity In France – Jean Duchesne, First ThingsReligious Freedom Watchdog For the First Time Urges Blacklisting for Russia – Patrick Goodenough, CNS NewsUSCIRF names China flagrant religious freedom abuser in annual report – ChinaAidMilitary Religious FreedomMilitary Chaplains Turn 100 Years Old as 'Attacks' on Service Rise – CBN NewsHouse Dems Push To Derail Mark Green For Army Secretary, Call Him ‘Homophobic’ – Jonah Bennett, The Daily Caller LifeAbortionNew study finds preborn babies may feel pain in the first trimester – Cassy Fiano, Live Action NewsPlanned Parenthood honors abortion “champions” – Nick Eicher, WORLDVideo: Abortions increasing, services decreasing at Planned Parenthood – Live ActionTrump Admin Looking at Stopping Obama Ruling Forcing California Churches to Pay for Abortions – Steven Ertelt, LifeNews10 Reasons Congress Should Defund Planned Parenthood, From Women Who Have Been There – Theresa Bonopartis, The FederalistAdoptionGirl adopted with all 5 siblings: 'This is just what I wanted' – Kevin Grasha, USA TodayAs Number of Adoptions Drops, Many US Agencies Face Strains – David Crary, Associated PressBioethicsShocking Report Shows Almost 6,100 People Were Killed in Assisted Suicide in the Netherlands Last Year – Alex Schadenberg, LifeNewsTrading on the Female Body: Surrogacy, Exploitation, and Collusion by the US Government – Kathleen Sloan, Public Discourse970 People Were Killed Killed in Canada Last Year in Euthanasia or Assisted Suicide – Alex Schadenberg, LifeNewsObamacareRunning The Numbers On Mortality Rates Suggests Obamacare Could Be Killing People – Brian Frankie, The Federalist FamilyEconomics/EducationOn Tax Day, Let’s Work Toward More Family-Friendly Tax Policies – Alysse ElHage, Family StudiesEducation Is A Market Whether Liberals Like It Or Not – Joy Pullmann, The FederalistA Bipartisan Case for School Choice – Melissa Moschella, Public DiscoursePutting First Things First in a College Education – Michael Scaperlanda, CrisisShould Mothers’ Labor Force Participation Be a Policy Goal? – Amber Lapp, Family StudiesMillennials Are Embracing Traditional Gender Roles in Record Numbers – RelevantMore education means less religious commitment — unless you’re Christian – Emily McFarlan Miller, Religion News ServiceMarriageWhy Millennial Women Delay Marriage – Jennifer Murff, The Christian PostCensus: More Americans 18-to-34 Now Live With Parents Than With Spouse – Terence P.
