Photographer Religious Liberty Case Continues

[Update] The Supreme Court has declined to hear this important case. Click here for CWA's press release on the development.

Our prayers for marriage and religious liberty continue. We expected to hear today from the Supreme Court on whether they would grant cert., meaning that they would agree to hear, the case of Elane Photography v. Willock. Elaine is the Christian Photographer who is being forced by government to violate her deeply held religious beliefs and cater to same-sex “weddings,” if she wants to be a photographer in New Mexico. But the Supreme Court did not address the case on their order list today.

This means the Supreme Court is still considering the case, and we must continue to pray.

The Planned Parenthood-Gosnell Linnk

Pennsylvania House Representative Margo L. Davidson (D)

Pennsylvania House Representative Margo L. Davidson (D)

Ok, this piece by Brandon McGinley at The Federalist is beyond belief. You know I’m not letting this one go. … We need to expose this every chance we get!!!

Summary: The cousin of Pennsylvania Democrat Representative dies at the hands of abortionist and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell. Therefore, the representative votes for clinic regulations. Therefore, Planned Parenthood is now actively working to remove her! Notice they had endorsed her before, so she is technically pro-choice, but the move to prevent another Gosnell is enough for Planned Parenthood to actively work to get her out of office. And that’ll be the title of my next column:

If You Want to Prevent Another Gosnell, You are Planned Parenthood’s Enemy

Here is McGinley’s piece: Why Is Planned Parenthood Working to Unseat Gosnell Victim’s Cousin?

“The campaign against Margo Davidson is a campaign to erase the memory of Kermit Gosnell from Pennsylvania politics.”


Debo Adegbile Defeated

Cloture vote on the nomination of Debo Adegbile was defeated 47-52. This is an incredible feat given the composition of the senate in a post-nuclear environment. Not even Vice President Biden showing up to be the deciding vote helped this extreme nominee. That says it all.

Adegbile was nominated to head the U.S. Justice Department's Civil Rights Division. The mere fact that Adegbile was nominated is an insult to those who respect the rule of law. Adegible played a leading role in the politicization and advocacy of our country’s most notorious cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal who murdered Police Officer Daniel Faulkner.

Officer Faulkner’s widow Maureen Faulkner wrote a passionate letter to the U.S. Senate opposing Adegbile’s nomination. She wrote:

Thirty three years ago my husband, Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, was violently murdered by a self-professed ‘revolutionary’ named Mumia Abu-Jamal...

Mr. Adegbile was a willing and enthusiastic accomplice in Mumia Abu-Jamal’s bid to cheat us of the justice we waited so many years for. Mr. Adegbile freely chose to throw the weight of his organization behind Mumia Abu-Jamal, and he has publically stated that he would get Mumia Abu-Jamal off death row…

Mr. Adegbile holds Mumia Abu-Jamal, a remorseless unrepentant cop killer, in high esteem. We know this because attorneys working under Mr. Adegbile supervision have stood before public rallies held in support of my husband’s killer and openly professed that it was ‘an extreme honor’ to represent the man who put a hollow based bullet into my husband’s brain as he lay on the ground, wounded, unarmed and defenseless.

And she was not alone, Chuck Canterbury, President of the National Fraternal Order Of Police wrote a letter to the President saying, “I am writing on behalf of the more than 330,000 members of the Fraternal Order of Police to express our extreme disappointment, displeasure and vehement opposition to the nomination of Debo Adegbile … As word of this nomination spreads through the law enforcement community, reactions range from anger to incredulity.”

Peter Kirsanow, a Commissioner of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, also wrote the President: “I am writing to express opposition to the nomination of Debo Adegbile as the head of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice and urge that members of the Senate vote against confirmation. ... going out of your way to defend a convicted cop-killer long after it has become unequivocally clear that he was guilty and had suffered no violation of his civil rights disqualifies one from serving as the head of a division of the Department of Justice.”

And many others, Bob Bushman, President of the Narcotic Officer’s Associations’ Coalition, William Johnson, Executive Director of the National Association of Police Organizations, and Aaron Kennard, Executive Director of the National Sheriffs’ Association, among others voiced strong opposition to the nomination but were ignored by President Obama and Senate leadership who moved ahead on his nomination.

Luckily they did not succeeded in pushing him through.

Here is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) speaking on the nomination on the Senate floor:
