Take Action

Another Chaplain Needs Your Help!

Yet another military chaplain has landed himself in trouble for following the teachings of his faith. Lt. Commander Wes Modder, a decorated U.S. Navy Chaplain who has served with distinction for 19 years, has been removed from his duties and will be brought before an official Board of Inquiry and could be ultimately forced out of the military.

Why is such drastic action being taken against someone who was recommended for early promotion? Chaplain Modder expressed biblical views of sexual morality, including homosexuality, when counseling another officer. For this, he is accused of “failing to show tolerance and respect.”

Chaplain Modder -- a Christian chaplain -- gave biblical counsel about sexual morality, and now he’s in danger of losing his job. This kind of intimidation must not be allowed to continue. The chaplaincy exists in order to give spiritual care to men and women who serve our country, sacrifice much, and are often daily in harm’s way. When a chaplain is not allowed to speak the tenets of his faith, what is left for him to speak?

Please read the petition below to the Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and the Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus calling for Chaplain Modder to be fully restored and all charges to be dropped against him. If you agree with it, click the link to sign it. We will deliver your petition to them to ... (more)

Psychological Association Delivers 'Snake Oil' Sociology In Latest Brief on Marriage

by Ken Blackwell

Ken Blackwell is Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Christian Post on March 27, 2015. The American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Sociological Association (ASA) submitted friend of the Court briefs in the Windsor case. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled portions of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional. If the Windsor Court majority relied on those briefs, it was reliant on snake oil, not science. The APA and the ASA should be the guardians of ... (more)

Netanyahu Is in Tall Cotton

by Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison

Ken Blackwell is Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment and Bob Morrison is Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Christian Post on March 19, 2015. The foreign policy clerisy in this country was loud in its denunciation of Arkansas freshman Sen. Tom Cotton (R) when he circulated a Round Robin letter with the signatures of 47 GOP senators. Sen. Cotton's letter simply states the obvious truth that no "executive agreement" with Iran can be guaranteed past the expiration of Mr. Obama's ... (more)
