ACLJ: Nuclear Iran must be met with “crippling sanctions”

by D. Bennett

The American Center for Law and Justice posts that Iran, having recently announced that it has moved closer to enriching uranium to high levels, should be the object of “immediate and crippling” sanctions from the global community.

“Some nations would like to continue negotiating with Iran. But we believe the time for talking is over,” the ACLJ writes. “The world community has been urging Iran to halt its nuclear development program for some time now. That simply hasn’t worked.”

Also, Easterling highlights the Mojave Desert Cross case that is being argued before the Supreme Court this week. Indicating that the justices could see this incident as an issue of land transfer or an issue of the Establishment Clause.

Finally, David B. Smith returns to the issue of health care reform, pointing out the widespread waste and abuse in the current system of Medicare and theorizing that it will only become worse under the current health care reform proposal.

ERLC: Stop the Hate (Crime Legislation…)

by Jessica Bryan

The ERLC is urging citizens to contact their senators and tell them to not support new hate crime legislation, alleging that:

The years-long battle over hate crimes legislation is entering its most critical hour. Both the House and Senate have passed such bills, which threaten to criminalize thought against homosexuality, while granting homosexual victims of violent crimes a preferred place under the law. Now congressional liberals, armed with the homosexual lobby, are hoping to prevail with final negotiations and votes necessary to send the dangerous measure to the White House for a signing victory…

No one should engage in an act of violence against someone because of that person’s sexual orientation, but neither should anyone be prosecuted because of their religious beliefs about homosexuality. Yet that is what is at stake under a federal hate crimes law. The freedom for pastors and Sunday School teachers to preach and teach the biblical truth about homosexuality hangs in the balance.

The group’s latest Life Digest  post includes short discussions with the following titles: Woman chooses life for child wrongly implanted, Black pro-lifers decry endorsement of health-care plan, Ultrasound pioneer dies, and Dominican Republic protects unborn in constitution.

A third postfrom the ERLC encourages President Obama to take action against Iran’s aggression.
