    BOISE, ID, August 3, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Federal district Judge Mikel Williams ruled on Friday that the Idaho Department of Correction must provide an inmate with estrogen therapy. The inmate believes that he is a woman trapped in a man's body. The man, who castrated himself using a disposable razor blade while in prison, demanded female hormone therapy, and also changed his name from Randall Gammett to Jenniffer Spencer. After prison officials refused estrogen therapy, but instead offered testosterone therapy to replace the hormones lost to castration, the inmate sued, alleging he was subjected to cruel and unusual punishment and...

    Today July 11, 2007 71 members of the Idaho Republican Party, including a number of members of the Idaho Republican Party State Central Committee and Executive Committee filed suit in the U. S. Federal Court in Boise Idaho to require the State of Idaho and its Chief Election Officer, Ben Ysursa, Idaho Secretary of State to honor the Rule adopted by the Idaho Republican Party on June 2, 2007. Idahoans are still entitled to the basic protections and rights offered by the U.S. Constitution 220 years ago, including the right of association under the First Amendment. It is our intent...
  • SALI’S REPUBLICAN CHALLENGER: PRO-ABORTION, PRO-GAY RIGHTS?

    Idaho Values Alliance. | Monday, July 9, 2007 | Bryan Fischer,
    Matt Salisbury of Nampa has declared his intention to challenge freshman GOP Congressman Bill Sali in the 2008 primary. This means Republican voters will have a choice next May, between an incumbent who subscribes to the party’s platform on the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage, and one who apparently does not. While Rep. Sali has been a staunch defender of life in the womb and a staunch defender of the concept that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, Salisbury evidently takes a different view. Salisbury was quoted by the Associated Press as someone...

    CONTINENTAL CONGRESS IN 1774 OPENS WITH PRAYER As the nation prepares for the 56th annual National Day of Prayer tomorrow, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect on a seminal moment in American history. The Continental Congress, which gave us the Declaration of Independence in 1776, convened for the first time on September 7, 1774. The first legislative action taken was a motion to open this first session in prayer. The motion was opposed. Aha, you say – separation of church and state! But it was opposed for reasons other than you might expect. It was not that the delegates...
  • How Could We Not Like Rudy?' Says Log Cabin Republican Boss

    Sacramento, Calif. -- One of the leaders in the nation's oldest and best-known gay Republican organization signaled tonight that the favorite GOP presidential candidate for his group in '08 was Rudy Giuliani. "How could we not like Rudy?" James Vaughn, executive director of the 30-year-old Log Cabin Republicans, told me at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, where California Republicans were gathering for their state convention this weekend. "He has always been openly supportive of the gay agenda and won't apologize," said Vaughn, who served as the liaison to gay and lesbian Los Angeleans under former Republican Mayor (1993-2001) Richard Riordan. "As...
  • Idaho Values Alliance finds support in Jefferson's Statute for Religious Freedom

    Idaho Values Alliance ^ | January,29, 2007 | Bryan Fischer , Executive Director of the Idaho Values Alliance.
    On Jan. 16, Virginia celebrated the 220th anniversary of the passage of Thomas Jefferson's Statute for Religious Freedom. This bill was so important to Jefferson that he insisted that his authorship of this bill be memorialized for all time on his epitaph. Unfortunately for the church of secular liberalism, his statute is problematic for groups who like to cite Jefferson in support of their effort to remove all mention of God, and Christianity in particular, from the public square. Jefferson could not stop himself from talking explicitly about God and about Christ in this statute, which is still today a...

    IDAHO VALUES ALLIANCE ^ | January 19, 2007 | Bryan Fischer
    Trembling for my country because God is just A pro-abortion column appeared in the Friday, January 19 edition of the largest circulation newspaper in my home state, written by the executive director of the state chapter of the ACLU and the president of the state affiliate of Planned Parenthood. They argue, of course, in support of a woman's right to destroy innocent human life in the womb, relying on the so-called "right to privacy." The heart of their argument is that "the decision whether and when to become a parent is among the most private a person can make," that...

    CBS Discourages Religion in Christmas A segment of "The CBS Early Show" today, hosted by Rene' Syler, included a list of "do's and don'ts" for holiday gift giving. She and her guest said it was "a bad idea" to send Christmas cards with religious themes, or with religious messages. I thought Christ was born on this day and is the basis for the holiday celebration of Christmas. Apparantly they have lost touch with reality. Please send a feedback comment email to the show if you feel compelled to do so. Here is the link: http://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/feedback/fb_news_form.shtml

    SALI VICTORY A HUGE WIN FOR IDAHO FAMILIES Bill Sali won convincingly in an energetically contested 6-horse primary yesterday for Idaho's 1st Congressional seat, taking 25% of the vote (as of 3:00 a.m., with 745 of the 914 precincts reporting). His win represents a huge victory for Idaho families, as he becomes the presumptive favorite in the general election in November. Sali believes staunchly in conservative principles (the kind expressed in the Republican Party platform), and has demonstrated in his 16 years in the Idaho legislature an unwavering allegiance to those principles. He will be a representative Idaho families can...

    My experience with working for pro-life causes is that one suffers many attacks because something very important to Satan is his ability to murder precious innocent children. Recently I have listed a few of my immedient trials, but there are more, and I expect more. I am asking for special prayer for ALL, of us and those working on campaigns for Godly men right now. We are in a battle for our nation like never before. Please for those who cannot for what ever reason be out working, or calling etc..please PRAY for us that are. Prayer is the most...

    Subject: Congress is selling out the Internet Hi, Do you buy books online, use Google, or download to an Ipod? These activities will be hurt if Congress passes a radical law that gives giant corporations more control over the Internet. Internet providers like AT&T and Verizon are lobbying Congress hard to gut Network Neutrality, the Internet's First Amendment. Net Neutrality prevents AT&T from choosing which websites open most easily for you based on which site pays AT&T more. Amazon.com doesn't have to outbid Barnes & Noble for the right to work more properly on your computer. Politicians don't think we...

    A candidate friend of mine has been asked to answer this question: "Judicial liberalism is a major concern for the prolife movement...... It seems clear to us that Congress has collectively failed to to fulfill its duty to check to check the growing power of the federal judiciary. If elected what are you prepared to do to help restore balance between the branches of the federal government." My question is what specifically could a congressman do to restore the balance of power?

    Dear Fellow Idahoan: Over the past week, a lot of attention has been given to the reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT Act, formally known as the "Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act." Because it is an important issue, and I have been at the forefront of the debate, I want to take a moment of your time to give you the latest news. I have been working with members of both parties in the Senate and House of Representatives to address PATRIOT Act provisions that may allow federal investigators to monitor...

    In a hauntingly similar replay of a January incident in which three of Mike Stockton’s hunting dogs were killed by wolves; Orofino outfitter Travis Reggear lost three of his dogs to wolves Tuesday, May 3. “They’re putting me out of business,” says Reggear who employs Stockton. “There won’t be anywhere left where you can turn a hound loose.” It has been determined that the Chesimia pack is responsible in both instances. The January hunt was for bobcat and occurred around an hour after the dogs had been let loose northeast of Dent Bridge in the Cranberry Creek/Elk Creek area. This...
