Albert Mohler: The Provocative Act of the House

The House of Representatives has just passed a new rule—and, no, it has nothing to do with impeachment.

The new rule—championed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi—establishes guidelines for language related to gender for the 177th Congress.

I’m going to read a portion exactly as it is found in the House Resolution: “In clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, strike, ‘father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law ….” And the list goes on and on.

What you just heard is a disaster—an assault upon creation and an assault on the English language, and yet it’s now the rule of the United States House of Representatives.

There will be no more brothers and sisters, only “siblings.” There will be no more mothers and fathers, only “parents.”

Christians have to understand that complicity in this kind of intentional confusion will come with consequences. It’s not merely a word game.

The House cannot change nature, but it can—and has—set our nation’s official discourse at war with nature.

Lanhee Chen: The Conservative Agenda After the Loss of Georgia Senate Seats

Democrats will be in control of both houses of Congress, and the White House, after Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20th and Georgia’s two new United States Senators, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, take their seats later this month.

Republicans have suffered a number of electoral setbacks—not only did they lose control of the White House, but they’ll be in the minority in both houses of Congress for the first time in a decade.

Looking ahead, Republicans will need to remain united to defeat efforts to move policy in America further to the progressive left. And they’ll need to present a compelling vision for what they’ll do if given the opportunity to govern again. The conservative movement has traditionally stood for economic opportunity, personal freedom, a strong national defense, and the value of human life. These are values that many of our fellow Americans share and should be the backbone of efforts by conservatives to lead, once again.

Lanhee Chen: An Opportunity for Georgians

It’s easy to dismiss the Senate elections in Georgia as just another vote to decide two more seats in Congress—and that, ultimately, it may not be all that consequential. I’m sure some of our fellow Americans—and more than a few Georgians—wonder what the point of voting is at all, especially given the outcome of the recent presidential elections.

But I’d urge those Georgians with doubts or who wonder if their vote matters to recognize that the elections in their state do, indeed, matter. A lot.

An unconstrained left means a move toward socialized medicine, the Green New Deal, and much higher taxes for many Americans. The only way that can be stopped is if Georgia voters cast their ballots in the upcoming runoff elections for the U.S. Senate. Your voices will matter, and your votes will be consequential.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a real difference for all Americans.

Lanhee Chen: The Course of the Country Turns on Georgia

The eyes of the political world are all on Georgia, and there’s good reason for that.

On January 5, voters in the Peach State will decide the fate of the next several years in American politics—and maybe beyond.

A win by either or both of incumbent Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue will require President-Elect Joe Biden and his liberal allies in Congress to work together with Republicans to pass common-sense legislation, rather than pursuing progressive priorities like the Green New Deal. And it will mean that some of Biden’s more extreme appointments—people who either aren’t qualified or who are far out of the mainstream—will be rejected by the Senate.

The runoff elections on January 5 will be held in Georgia, but their impact will be felt by more than the 10 million people who live there. All Americans should recognize that nothing short of the course our country will take for the next several years is at stake.

Lanhee Chen: Two Seats in Georgia

It’s easy to dismiss the upcoming Senate elections in Georgia as just another vote to decide two more seats in Congress—and that, ultimately, it may not be all that consequential. I’m sure some of our fellow Americans—and more than a few Georgians—wonder what the point of voting is at all, especially given the outcome of the recent presidential elections.

But I’d urge those Georgians with doubts or who wonder if their vote matters to recognize that the upcoming elections in their state do, indeed, matter. A lot.

An unconstrained left means a move toward socialized medicine, the Green New Deal, and much higher taxes for many Americans. The only way that can be stopped is if Georgia voters cast their ballots—either by mail or in person—in the upcoming runoff elections for the US Senate. Your voices will matter, and your votes will be consequential.
