Help a Chaplain Disciplined for His Faith

This cannot stand. When a military chaplain cannot openly speak about his faith, military disarmament has reached a level that no budget cuts could ever produce.

Advocates of abortion-on-demand worked to convince voters they had women’s interests at heart. It hasn’t worked in the past and, in 2014, it really didn’t work. In Colorado, Democratic Sen. Mark Udall harped on that ... (more)
