    At Governor Huckabee’s Gift of Life movie premiere last evening, I had an opportunity to sit down with The FAMiLY LEADER president Bob Vander Plaats. In an earlier interview I heard him suggest that the Family Leader may have to make a pragmatic decision on who to endorse for President. I was concerned that “pragmatic” might mean picking a pro-choice candidate over a pro-life candidate because they have a better “chance” at beating Barack Obama (or Mitt Romney!).When I pointed out that Rick Perry and New Gingrich hold positions that include exceptions on abortion he said:“If I find that to...

    A key Iowa social conservatives group announced Tuesday it will not endorse former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney or businessman Herman Cain, but is still evaluating if it would back one of the other candidates. The Family Leader, which hosted a forum that six Republican candidates attended last Saturday, said in a statement that its board had narrowed its choices of an endorsement to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and ex-senator Rick Santorum (Penn). The statement said the group would not consider endorsing Romney, who the group criticized for skipping its event. The...

    Some issues ought to stay comfortably and securely buried, but the Equal Rights Amendment just keeps rearing its ugly head. It is the tired, but dangerous amendment that refuses to die. This week a bill to restart the ratification process of the ERA was introduced into the House by New York Democrat Carolyn B. Maloney and 194 co-sponsors. House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers said he will hold hearings on it and lawmakers backing it say they will bring it to a vote. "We're going to win it now. We've got the votes, Rep. Maloney told a group of cheering...

What the ABC reporter failed to mention is that not only is the topic controversial, much of the actual curriculum is medically misleading or inaccurate. For example, teachers are required to say "sexual orientation is...
