The First Amendment does not prohibit churches from speaking out on any […]
“Three Christian crosses that stood on state property next to a scenic overlook in north San Diego County for decades were removed by California Department of Transportation workers earlier this week.” Do you see the irony? The County of San Diego, that is, the County of Saint James? We keep hearing how some of the […]
It seems that every time there is a council meeting the issue of prayer comes up. A Christian prays in Jesus’ name during the meeting and the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State jump in and dub these prayers unconstitutional. What does the Constitution really say? Watch Vantage Point to find […]
Commissioners from Forsyth County in North Carolina appeared before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit to appeal a District Court’s decision to bar commissioners from opening public meetings with prayers prayed in Jesus’ name.

The Christmas season brings out the best and worst in people; it also brings out the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). In fact, Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the FFRF, states, "The state shouldn’t have a Christmas anything. It’s not supposed to observe religious holidays."
Today is Black Friday, the start of the Christmas shopping season. Every year about this time, there rises a hue and cry about the "commercialization" of Christmas, accompanied by impassioned pleas to get back to the "real meaning" of the celebration.
