Mohler: Supression Of Religious Speech

The Daily Caller recently reported that “under a Massachusetts civil rights agency’s interpretation of new anti-discrimination law, churches can be forced to let biological males who identify as transgender women use the women’s bathroom.”

The guidelines apply to any place of public accommodation and specifically state that “even a church could be seen as a place of public accommodation if it holds a secular event, such as a spaghetti supper, that is open to the general public.”

Use of gender pronouns is also at issue. UCLA Professor Eugene Volokh explains, “Church leaders have to use the words that the law requires, even when they view them as false or even blasphemous.”

This is simply astounding. We have a major law professor from a major law school making very clear that these guidelines could require Christian leaders and church members to utter what they believe to be blasphemous or be accused with violating anti-discrimination laws.

Medved: A Celebration of Everyday Heroism

This is Michael Medved for Townhall.com.

As America observed the 15th anniversary of 9/11, Hollywood released a film about an aviation disaster with a very different outcome. SULLY, directed by Clint Eastwood, tells the true story of the 2009 “Miracle on the Hudson” with the superb Tom Hanks as pilot Chesley Sullenberger, who landed his crippled plane on the River and saved his 155 passengers.

Most of the film focuses on the investigation of Sully immediately following the incident, questioning whether he could have landed the plane at a nearby airport, as Air Traffic Control instructed. The underlying message is appreciation for the quiet heroism of hard-working, everyday Americans doing their jobs with pride and competence—air traffic controllers, cops, Coast Guardsmen, ferry workers and, yes, airline personnel.

The film arrives in the midst of a sullen season when the nation needs reminders of just that sort of dignity and decency.

I’m Michael Medved.

Thornbury: Constitution Day and the First Liberty

This is Greg Thornbury of The King’s College in New York for TownHall.com

This month, The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights released a report entitled: “Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Nondiscrimination Policies with Civil Liberties.” The document, ironically, does not call for peace but rather aggression toward people of religious belief.

In the mind of Commission Chairman, Martin Castro, the term “religious liberty” is nothing but a code word for intolerance and discrimination. Hillary Clinton has expressed similar comments recently about religious beliefs that simply need to be changed to fit with the times.

According to Wall Street Journal editor Bill McGurn, the first freedom in the Bill of Rights is now being trashed by our government.

On Friday this week schools that receive any federal aid must observe “Constitution Day,” in order to commemorate the 39 patriots who signed the document in 1787.

Come November, the nation will go to the ballot box to decide if religious liberty—the “First Liberty”—enshrined in the Constitution, still matters.

Medved: Hillary’s Horrible Weekend

This is Michael Medved for Townhall.com.

By every measure, Hillary Clinton suffered a disastrous weekend surrounding the 9/11 anniversary.

Her near collapse on Sunday morning hurt her badly not just because it left the impression of frailty and ill-health, but due to foolish attempts to conceal her pneumonia from a public that deserved candor. Even worse, her comments on Friday night smearing half of Trump’s supporters with charges of racism and homophobia will undermine all her attempts to woo independent or Republican voters.

The main impulse behind much of the support for Donald Trump involves an angry rebellion against political correctness. Hillary only intensifies that anger by invoking precisely the sort of smug, stifling leftist pieties most Americans resent.

This patronizing attitude could very well turn an election she couldn’t lose into a campaign that she can’t win.

I’m Michael Medved.

Hewitt: A “Living Constitution” Majority Maker?

Pepperdine California Democratic Party

This is Hugh Hewitt for Townhall.com.

Whatever happens in these last weeks of the presidential election, one thing is certain: there is a vacant seat on the Supreme Court and if Hillary Clinton wins the election, she will appoint a so-called “living Constitution” majority maker.

Five years ago, liberal Justice Stephen Breyer told me that his greatest regret is failing to make the Supreme Court the “umpire” of congressional district line drawing.

If a second President Clinton makes the next Supreme Court appointment (or the next two or three), the impact on congressional line drawing will be massive, and will arrive by 2022.

The GOP can expect rulings from the Supreme Court that will place the party of Lincoln in permanent minority status. Justice Breyer is a brilliant man, and he would reverse his biggest regret.

Anticipate rulings on the redistricting plans drawn in the aftermath of the 2020 census that, magically, always favor Democratic candidates.

It is from redistricting cases that the permanent hard left lurch of the country will come.

I’m Hugh Hewitt.
