Now Colorado Rocked... (First column, 4th story, link) Related stories:UPDATE: Mysterious 'booms' heard in 64 locations worldwide...Experts baffled...
Dear Friends,A disturbing idea has been embedded in our culture for quite some time. It is the idea that in general, people should be left to their own devices to decide what is right and wrong for them. In other words, people, particularly children, should not be imposed upon or “nurtured,” they should instead be free to take on their own “nature,” whatever that may manifest to be. This is illustrated by the growing phenomenon of parents insisting that their children must be free to choose their gender.Those who adhere to this philosophy, I would argue, are not being totally honest with themselves. What I mean by this is that those who insist that everyone must be free to decide for themselves what is right or wrong are the very same people that expect society to adhere to certain rules, such as the prohibitions against murder, rape, and theft. This is quite telling, because it reveals that there are some things in life that most people agree are inherently true and therefore non-negotiable; indeed, they can and should be imposed.This reveals the inherent flaw in the “nature over nurture” logic. Believers know that if man is left to his own devices, he will eventually devolve into a selfish beast. In other words, man does not come upon moral behavior by chance or by nature—it must be taught and shown to him. This fact underscores the critical role that parents have in educating their children. When believers pass on the tenets of their faith to their children, they are giving them a foundation to not only become a stable member of society and have a successful future, but to enjoy a life of happiness that can only be found by serving God. As Ian Rowe has written in Family Studies, even our country’s most wealthy educational benefactors do not understand this basic fact—that children who are most likely to succeed are those whose parents are their primary educators.More and more evidence for the importance of stable family structures continues to come out every day. May we lead by example and help transform our culture into one that values and upholds the family unit.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 ArticlesIgnoring Military’s Reasons for Transgender Order, Unelected Judge Sets National Security Policy – Tony PerkinsIn abortion case, we let two children down: Jane Doe and Baby Doe – Travis WeberTrump is a great champion of religious liberty -- a welcome change from Obama – Tony PerkinsAll Hat, No Decency – Ken BlackwellFoster Parenting and Adoption: Answering God’s Call to Love – Kathy AthearnVice President Pence Announces Relief for Middle East Christians – Travis WeberGeorgetown University’s Identity Crisis – Kelly MarcumWe Need To Rethink Our Sexual Culture – Dan HartIn Today’s Media Environment, It’s “News” When the Department of Justice Actually Enforces the Law – Travis WeberIs the Air Force Finished With People of Faith? – Travis Weber Religious LibertyReligious Liberty in the Public SquareThe Uses and Abuses of Hate – Robert Knight, TownhallWhen Will The Media Stop Trusting A Hate Group To Label Hate Groups? – Margot Cleveland, The FederalistFederal court rules World War I memorial cross must be torn down – Todd Starnes, Fox News91% of pastors want to speak freely without govt punishment – Alliance Defending FreedomACLU Silent on Gay Coffee Shop Owner Who Kicked Out Pro-Lifers – Amber Randall, The Daily SignalGeorgetown may defund student group for defending Church teaching on marriage – Claire Chretien, LifeSiteNewsWhy the Government Shouldn’t Force Bakers—Or Anyone—to Express Support for Same-Sex Marriage – Steven Smith, Public DiscourseI’m a Conservative at Princeton.

Jack Phillips, the Colorado Christian cakeshop owner who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding, has received the “Courage in the Face of Power:Daniel Award.”
Dear Friends,In the face of chaotic and often disturbing events that dominate headlines and news feeds these days, I am often tempted (and sometimes succumb) to feelings of frustration and anger. I sometimes imagine that if only I were in charge, things would be so much better. If only I could have more control and worldly power, I could wield it in order to make everyone’s lives better, and I would feel better too.When we examine the lives of those who do have influence, however—the rich, famous, and powerful—the results are often not pretty. In our increasingly godless society, money, fame, and power are often sought as ends in themselves because they are so alluring. As believers, it’s easy to delude ourselves into thinking, “Well, it’s true that money, fame, and power have a tendency to cause corruption in people, but that would never happen to me because I know that God is most important. I would use these things to better the world.” It’s easy to use this kind of reasoning to justify wasting money on lottery tickets, wasting time on Facebook curating our profiles just so, and wasting our talents on frivolous pursuits in order to gain societal status.The reality for most of us is that we will never be in positions of great influence, and we will never be rich, famous, and powerful. And that’s perfectly okay. Why? Because one of life’s great paradoxes is that the less control we possess over our lives, the freer we are. When we let go of the vice grip we have around our life goals and life plans, God gives us a multitude of opportunities for us to do His will, not ours. Living in this way is truly freeing, because it gives us the roomy flexibility to respond to a friend or stranger in need who inconveniently disrupts our lives. Having less money, fame, and power also frees us from being distracted from what truly matters: nurturing love within our families and those closest to us.As Mother Teresa once said: “If you want to bring happiness to the whole world, go home and love your family.”Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research CouncilP.S.
