Albert Mohler: The Greatest Legislative Threat to Religious Liberty in Decades

Theo Hobson—a British liberal thinker—defines a moral revolution this way: “That which was repudiated must be celebrated. That which was celebrated must be repudiated. And those who will not celebrate must themselves be repudiated.”

Hobson’s words are very relevant in light of the Equality Act which was introduced last week by Democrats in the House of Representatives. As we watch the advance of the full array of LGBTQ-plus issues, sometimes the law is the last to change, not the first. Higher education and entertainment, of course, have come first—they changed first.

We’ve seen the Equality Act before, but this time it is introduced with a president who has declared his active support for the revolutionary legislation.

It represents the greatest threat to religious liberty in my decades of American public life.

If signed into law, it will be very, very difficult for any Christian college, or ministry or university to operate with Christian conviction.

It’s almost sure to pass by the democratic majority in the House.

Our only hope is that somehow this legislation can be stopped in the Senate.

If not, we’re in big trouble.

Hugh Hewitt: Every U.S. Citizen Will Be Impacted by Georgia’s Vote

January 5th, 2021 marks a decisive day in this new year, one that will resonate throughout all of ’21 and indeed 2022.

This is because Georgia votes today in runoffs for two United States Senate seats. It’s an election of enormous consequence for the other 49 states because the results will determine whether Republicans or Democrats control the Senate—and thus greatly impacting every U.S. citizen.

Salem is supporting David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler—and encouraging Georgians to turnout to return these two incumbents to office. Their opponents—John Ossoff and Raphael Warnock—are both very left wing. The Rev. Warnock may, in fact, be the most radical major party candidate of the era.

A GOP majority will ensure a check on President-elect Biden. They’ll refuse to confirm radical judicial appointments while continuing robust spending on the American military.

Georgians, please vote! And if you know anyone in Georgia, please call them and urge them to vote today.

Mohler: Do Voters in Georgia Recognize Raphael Warnock?

There is one big question still outstanding from our recent election and that question is this: Who will control the United States Senate?

There are two races in Georgia which will decide control of the Senate for at least the next two years, likely longer.

In one of those races—the contest is between Kelly Loeffler and Raphael Warnock—and in this race, you’re looking at something that is unprecedented in the state of Georgia.

The Reverend Dr. Raphael Warnock just may be the most radical candidate conceivable from a state like Georgia.

When it comes to the question of abortion, he is one of the most radical candidates to run, not only in the South, but anywhere in recent American history.

The question is, do the voters in Georgia actually recognize this?

We’re going to find out on January the 5th. Now is the time for the voters of Georgia to wake up and understand what’s going on. The entire nation is watching.
