    WASHINGTON, D.C., November 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — At Chick-fil-A, the politically correct handwriting was on the wall for a long time, but most of us missed it. Until now. Just four days since the popular chicken restaurant’s infamous announcement about reprioritizing its corporate giving, and despite the launch of a counter-narrative by conservatives Rev. Franklin Graham, Erik Erickson, and others, it’s clear that Chick-fil-A (CFA) has been on a troubling leftward trajectory for quite some time. The revelations are stunning. Chick-fil-A evolving into a pipeline of cash to leftist causes CFA fans wouldn’t have been caught by surprise if they...

    Liberty Counsel Chief Litigation Counsel Harry Mihet makes his closing argument to the jury tomorrow morning in a San Francisco federal courtroom. The 11-person jury (one was excused after an accident) starts deliberating Wednesday. That’s why I’m asking you to pray for Harry . . . and especially for our client Sandra Merritt. She faces the very real possibility of a crushing jury verdict. And that verdict could come anytime–possibly even later this week. Planned Parenthood is suing Sandra for millions. Her supposed “crime” was exposing the abortion giant’s brutal, merciless and greedy commerce in the baby body parts it...

    Lawyers for a defendant in a civil action in California over the 2015 undercover videos that exposed Planned Parenthood and the American abortion industry's profiting from baby body parts say lawyers for abortionists have flubbed. The civil lawsuit by abortion interests targets David Daleiden, Sandra Merritt and the Center for Medical Progress, including board member Troy Newman. They released a series of videos that show, among other things, one abortionist seeking higher pay for baby body parts because "I want a Lamborghini." The civil case, in which abortionists are seeking monetary damages for the videos, are a prelude to the...
  • A religious group wants the Supreme Court to overturn N.J.'s ban on gay conversion therapy

    Licensed therapists in New Jersey have been prohibited since 2013 from engaging in conversion therapy, an attempt to change a child’s gender identity or their sexual orientation from gay to straight. But encouraged by a U.S. Supreme Court decision last year, Liberty Counsel, a national religious legal organization, just asked the nation’s highest court for a chance to prove New Jersey’s law violates the free speech rights of counselors who believe the treatment works. The ruling in June struck down portions of a California law that required crisis pregnancy centers to tell pregnant women about the availability of publicly-funded family-planning...

    If jolly old Saint Nick were a real person who had a real naughty and nice list, Nebraska school principal Jennifer Sinclair would most definitely be getting nothing but coal in her stocking this year. Sinclair has went on an anti-Christmas rampage, banning candy canes because their “J” shape represents Jesus, the reason for the season. However, that was just the beginning. What kinds of items, you ask? Liberty Counsel provided a memo from principal Jennifer Sinclair that spelled out in detail all the verboten paraphernalia at Manchester Elementary School in Omaha: Santas or Christmas items (clip art) on worksheets...

    Legal matters relating to the LGBT community have always been controversial; even so, LGBT advocates are increasingly attacking not just outspoken anti-LGBT advocates but even mainstream conservative organizations that happen to disagree with the view that homosexual marriage is on par with heterosexual relationships. In a move that is sure to alarm many in the legal community, the LGBT Bar Association has started an official petition asking members of the legal community not to cooperate with conservative legal groups that defend traditional marriage, including the Alliance Defending Freedom and Liberty Counsel. These two particular groups were likely named not just...

    Two attorneys are hopeful that the most liberal appellate court in the nation will become conservative. Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals announced his retirement Monday after women alleged he subjected them to inappropriate sexual conduct or comments. "Good riddance that this judge is gone – is retiring for this sexual harassment allegation," Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver commented on Kozinski’s retirement. "This is a very serious situation, and I think it's about time to get rid of a lot more judges – not just for this, but for their judicial activism." According to...

    Many Christian organizations are fearful for their safety after CNN published a bogus “hate map” concocted by the Southern Poverty Law Center. “Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” CNN’s headline declared. The list included among others American Family Association, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Counsel and Pacific Justice Institute. American Family Association blasted the CNN story calling it a “sham news article that could easily incite violence and place AFA employees and supporters in harm’s way.” Liberty Counsel President Mat Staver demanded an immediate retraction – calling CNN’s report “false, defamatory and dangerous.” “Liberty...

    After prayer and careful consideration, I, and my courageous wife, have decided, with the help of our stalwart legal team at Liberty Counsel, to take the unusual step of appealing the dismissal of the SMUG v Lively lawsuit to the First Circuit Court of Appeals. We believe that action is necessary to purge the prejudicial ruling of Judge Ponsor’s false and subjective assertion that the incidents in Uganda on which the suit is based (incidents by parties unknown to me that the record shows I had no part in) constitute crimes against humanity, lowering the standard for asserting such claims...

    The conservative legal group Liberty Counsel is claiming that the public school district violated the Constitution by censoring the anti-abortion student group’s poster. The poster, which took over 25 hours to make, included hand-painted hearts and the phrase “3,000 Lives Are Ended Each Day.” . . . Administrators also asked the students to refrain from using the word, “abortion,” in club material, in written or oral communications, or on social media. Administrators even went as far as asking students from the club to sign an agreement that would bar them from seeking legal assistance to protect their right to express...

    Reaffirms nationwide injunction blocking White House policy for schools (WND) – For a third time, a federal judge has affirmed a nationwide injunction against the Obama administration’s agenda to impose mandatory open-restroom policies on schools from coast to coast, scolding the White House for repeating old arguments and catching those who submitted the newest arguments in a lie. The ruling this week from U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor left intact his nationwide injunction against Obama’s decision that transgender public school students can use the restroom of their choice, rather than the restroom designated for their biological gender. The White House...

    A public school in California ordered a 7-year-old boy to stop handing out Bible verses during lunch – and they dispatched a deputy sheriff to the child’s home to enforce the directive. “This is a clear, gross violation of the rights of a child,” said Horatio Mihet, a Liberty Counsel attorney representing the first-grader who attends Desert Rose Elementary School in Palmdale. They are also representing his parents, Christina and Jaime Zavala.

    Grayson, KY – Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, will join supporters at a rally outside the Carter County Detention Center on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. ET.  The “I’m with Kim” Rally is organized by Gov. Mike Huckabee. Liberty Counsel is willing to join any group that stands in support of Kim Davis. “Not long ago 75 percent of Kentuckians passed the state’s marriage amendment. Today a Christian is imprisoned for believing what the voters affirmed, that marriage is between a man and a woman,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Five people on the...

    The state of Kentucky has begun imposing a religious test on volunteer pastor counselors in its youth division, insisting that they refrain from calling homosexuality “sinful” and dismissing those who cannot bend their religious faith to accommodate the state requirements. The policy was uncovered by Liberty Counsel, which has sent a letter to Bob Hayter, commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice, demanding that the state religious test be dropped and that a dismissed counselor be reinstated.“Liberty Counsel writes regarding the blatantly unconstitutional revocation of volunteer prison minister status of ordained Christian minister David Wells, who has provided voluntary...

    Even though they were warned there could be trouble, a Kansas school board nevertheless voted to allow student-led prayers and even use of the school's public address system to do so. At its meeting on September 23, the school board in Liberal voted unanimously (7-0) to allow student-led prayers at all school activities and to provide access to the school's public address system. According to the Leader & Times newspaper, the item was added “spontaneously” to the agenda near the end of that meeting. “We do live in a democratic society, and I personally feel like our community would support...

    Christian Post ^ | 08/20/2013 | Michael Gryboski,
    A conservative legal group has stated its intentions to file a lawsuit against New Jersey over a recently signed law banning sexual orientation conversion therapy for minors. Mat Staver, founder and chairman of The Liberty Counsel, confirmed to The Christian Post on Monday his organization's plan to file the suit. "We will be filing suit," said Staver, adding that the suit should be submitted "later this week." On Monday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed into law A-3371, a bill that would ban the controversial practice of reparative therapy (also called conversion therapy) for minors. A-3371 enjoyed bipartisan support in...

    The Supreme Court had no reason to rule on the merits of the Defense of Marriage Act, but the majority opinion lays the groundwork for a sweeping, national legalization of same-sex marriage in the near future, warns Liberty Counsel Chairman Mathew Staver. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court handed same-sex marriage advocates a pair of victories. In addition to dismissing a defense of California’s traditional marriage amendment based on legal standing, it struck down a provision of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, as unconstitutional that allowed federal benefits only for spouses in heterosexual marriages. That’s because the 1996 federal...

    Under President Obama, “justice” is anything but blind. Neither is it deaf. In fact, based on recent revelations, it appears to be watching your every move and listening to your every word. Still, if you happen to be a federal employee, now it’s even listening for your silence. The only thing this Obama White House seems to generate is scandal. Well, here’s yet another to add to the growing list. In addition to the Benghazi cover-up, IRS targeting of political dissenters and the illegal seizure of media phone records, whistleblowers within DOJ have contacted Liberty Counsel to express grave concerns...

    There IS a small ray of light shining up from the rubble of what is left of America. With Republican governors acting like – well Republicans and crawling back to lick Barack Obama’s boots, it IS hard to accept, but the fight against Obamacare is still on. The feckless and traitorous John Roberts may not have destroyed us after all. A lawsuit against the worst elements of Obamacare brought by Liberty Counsel, which has of course been ignored by the Democrat controlled media, has been set for a rehearing by the U.S. Supreme Court. It will be reheard in the...
