Save the children

Every day there are thousands of undocumented persons put into private or public prisons (Stop the deportations, Faith in Action, February 28, 2014). They are frequently taken away from their children and spouses. They may be deported. They are taken away... read more»

Hobby Lobby vs. Sebelius

If the U.S. Supreme Court allows Hobby Lobby to prevail in this case allowing them to impose their religious views on their employees and their health care, the regulatory dam will be breached and a flood of religious fiats will begin drowning out civil rights in this country (read more»

Hobby Lobby breaking the law

They are not being attacked for their beliefs (Protect the common good, Faith in Action, March 26, 2014). It is because they are breaking the law. There are exceptions for faith groups such as the Catholic Church — not businesses run... read more»

Hobby Lobby

The General Board of Church & Society is just plain wrong on this issue (Protect the common good, Faith in Action, March 26, 2014). This is not for the common good, but only for narrow ultra liberal groups that have little... read more»

Support for healthy families

Somewhere, somehow, the debate over religious freedom morphed from protecting all individuals' various beliefs to elevating one person's or one organization's practice over that of everyone else (Protect the common good, Faith in Action, March 26, 2014). That is not... read more»

Hobby Lobby

Protecting human life: not ‘common good’

Supporting Hobby Lobby and the Green family in their legal battle seems clear to me (Protect the common good, Faith in Action, March 26, 2014). This is not a battle for basic health care, but over forcing private companies to... read more»

Hobby Lobby

Don't expose yourself to pregnancy and you won't need contraception (Protect the common good, Faith in Action, March 26, 2014). Take responsibility for your actions. You want to tell the employer what to do but resist if the employer were... read more»

To the point

As always, Jim Winkler's to-the-point addresses are clear, prophetic, and totally needed in this chaotic time (The voice of people of faith, Faith in Action, March 26, 2014). My hanks to him! I wish him Godspeed in his new office... read more»

Boycott Is wrong

One might think the General Board of Church & Society (GBCS) has better things to do than encourage boycotting a relatively small Israeli soda pop company located halfway around the world (Boycott SodaStream, Faith in Action, March 14, 2014). The fact that... read more»
