A shameful surrender to pornographers

by Jared Bridges

April 2, 2007

Also in the op/ed department, FRC’s Cathy Ruse, Senior Fellow for Legal Studies, writes in today’s Christian Science Monitor about the recent overturning by the courts of the Child Online Protection Act:

Another federal judge has struck down the Child Online Protection Act. Had it taken effect, the 1998 law would have done one simple thing: require Internet pornographers to verify the age of customers through the use of adult-access codes or credit cards.

Last month, Judge Lowell Reed Jr ruled out even this basic measure of accountability as a violation of the free-speech rights of porn purveyors and their often addicted customers.

Life Lessons

by Jared Bridges

April 2, 2007

Chris Gacek, FRC’s Senior Fellow for Regulatory Affairs, writes at the Weekly Standard website today about the two year anniversary of Terri Schiavo’s death:

THIS WEEKEND marked the second anniversary of Terri Schiavo’s death. It is widely asserted by the mainstream press, liberal activists, and some in the Democratic party that those who argued for congressional action in her case were not only wrong to do so, but acted without any reasonable justification. Quite to the contrary: The circumstances surrounding Terri Schiavo’s death demonstrate that reforms are needed to protect persons like her in the future.

Feeling a Draft?

by Family Research Council

March 30, 2007

Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) is a highly decorated former Marine and Vietnam veteran. He’s also the chairman of the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee and one of the most outspoken opponents of the Iraq conflict. Recently he told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he supports reinstating the military draft and said that he believes “everyone ought to be obligated to serve”:

Before you would-be draft dodgers rush off to buy a one-way bus tickets to Canada, keep in mind that hardly anyone—including the military and Murtha’s fellow legislators—agrees that a draft is desirable.

Born That Way

by Family Research Council

March 30, 2007

As this video notes, some babies are “born with something that affects more people than malaria, cancer, or even HIV and AIDS. Because of it, many of them will be denied an education and condemned to a life of poverty. Thousands of them will be killed. Millions more will be victimized and abused. Because all these babies have one thing in common…”

Interestingly, this ad by Trocaire, the official overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Ireland, was banned by the The Broadcasting Commission of Ireland (BCI) because it was deemed too “political.”

Praying for Snow … and Suzi

by Family Research Council

March 30, 2007

The Update has already noted that White House spokesman Tony Snow has learned that the cancer he thought he’d beaten two years ago is back. When Mr. Snow presented at our Washington Briefing last year he was an instant hit with his humble wit. Whether as a Washington correspondent for ABC News, a host for Fox News Sunday, the host of his own radio show or as White House spokesman Snow is a hard guy not to like, even when one disagrees with him. The news from the White House comes on the heels of the announcement that Presidential candidate John Edwards wife, Elizabeth, is also fighting a return of her cancer. Without a doubt everyone has been touched by someone who has battled cancer or been lost to the fight. Here at Family Research Council one of our own, Susan Sterenberg has been valiantly struggling against cancer for nine years and is entering a most difficult stage of the battle. I ask that you keep Tony Snow, Elizabeth Edwards, Susan Sterenberg and all their families in your prayers. Times like this we must ask Our Savoir to hold us in his hands. May we be inspired by 1 Peter 5:7, Cast your cares upon the Lord, for he cares about you.
