An individual’s civil rights of religious liberty and freedom of conscience should be affirmed and free from government interference.

Facebook Discussion with a Homosexual
Occasionally IFI publishes discussions we’ve had with someone on our Facebook page in the hope that these discussions will help our readers better understand some of the fallacious arguments Leftists use to normalize homosexuality or the “trans” ideology. Here is one such discussion I had with Alex Deal on Tuesday. Mr. Deal left his initial comment in response to a comment left by an IFI supporter on our Facebook page that said no one is “born a homosexual” and that...

Medusa’s Pink Hat & the ERA
Like Medusa, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) has reared its chthonic head again, and this time it’s wearing a silly pink hat over all those snakes. Here’s what the ERA actually says: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Since the ERA says precisely nothing about women, why do feminists continue to claim that it’s all about women’s rights? In fact, the harm...

Let’s Talk About “The Talk”
There’s a battle raging right now over sex education, and our kids are in the line of fire.“Your teacher told you what?” These are the first words of too many parents when they discover what their teens and pre-teens are learning in health class.

Paraphilia of the Day: Gerontophilia
Over the years there have been many articles outlining the “insanity” of transgenderism. No one should forget that the “LGB…T” movement willingly locked arms with those troubled souls. The more we learn about the “lifestyle” that is reflected by all of those letters — LGBTQIA(etc.) — the more people will understand that it is quite appropriate that all of the odd and unnatural paraphilias should be lopped together. As has been noted previously, there is one man/one woman sex according...

Relief from Onerous HHS Mandate Restores Religious Liberty
Last week, President Donald Trump announced that his administration will exempt employers who have a faith-based or moral-based objection to providing contraceptives, including drugs that can cause abortions. This is important action to restore religious liberties that were stripped away in the Obamacare HHS mandate.

How The ‘Revolution’ Is Eating Its Own
At a forum at the College of William & Mary on Sept. 27, the ACLU got a sample of what conservatives have been experiencing on campuses for years. As Claire Gastanaga, executive director of the ACLU of Virginia, began speaking to a small audience, a group of demonstrators marched in with a large banner that said, “Blood on Your Hands.” They lined up in front of the stage, holding placards. Apparently clueless about what was about to transpire, Ms. Gastaaga...

The “Trans” Ideology Harms Children
Illinois Republican governor Bruce Rauner campaigned on having "no social agenda." To paraphrase Dr. Seuss, he said, and said, and said those words. He said them. But he lied them.

Rep. Breen & Sen. McConchie File Legislation to Ban Use of Taxpayer Funds for Elective Abortions
Today, State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) and State Senator Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) filed the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” which would prohibit units of government in Illinois from using taxpayer funds for elective abortions, reversing key provisions of the recently enacted HB 40. Breen and McConchie are pressing for full debate and a floor vote on the measure during the upcoming fall veto session later this month, before HB 40 goes into effect...
Smashmouth Incrementalism
A recent development within the pro-life movement has both a heartening and disheartening aspect. I am talking about the rise of the “abolish human abortion now” sentiment. This in one sense is the whole point of being pro-life, and so a clear reaffirmation of the entire raison d’être is always welcome. The other side of it, the disheartening part, is the tendency among some of these “abolitionists” to denounce any pro-life incrementalists as being, by definition, temporizers, vacillators, or compromisers. ...
