By Tamara Cochran Louris   |   04.11.17
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
~2 Corinthians 11:14~ The United States was founded by people of faith, people who espoused a biblical worldview. That worldview, bolstered by a conscience that yearns for justice,...

Hate Crime Laws — Unequal Protection Under the Law
By David E. Smith   |   03.09.10

ERA Is Back From The Dead, Again!
The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) is back in Congress -- back from the dead that is. This proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution has nothing to do with helping women and everything to do with 1.) the unencumbered “right” to kill babies while in utero—including baby girls; and 2.) the transgender agenda: more specifically, those who pretend they are members of the opposite sex and want the entire country to play along.
Strict Scrutiny and the ERA – A Bad Combination for Women

The ERA Harms Our Unborn Children
The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA – Bill #SJRCA 4) is a poorly worded proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would restrict all laws and practices that make any distinctions based on gender or sex.    While we believe in equal opportunity for men and women, we also recognize that there are situations where we must make distinctions based on our biological differences such as providing privacy through separate bathrooms and locker rooms.  If the ERA becomes fully ratified, men and women could not be treated differently, even if the different treatment is due to physical differences.

A Prayer for Illinois
By Kathy Valente   |   05.04.18
With about 4 weeks left of the Illinois General Assembly’s session and several bad bills that still could be voted on, it is very fitting to appeal to “Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine,” (Eph. 3:20) and Him through Whom “all things are possible.” (Matt. 19:26)
IFI Update: ERA Passes Illinois Senate
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.11.18
In a stunning display of ignorance, the Illinois State Senate just voted 43-12 in favor of the resolution to adopt the Equal Rights Amendment. What makes this vote even more enraging is that Republicans Pam Althoff (R-Crystal Lake), Jason Barickman...
Lawmakers Are Being Misled by ERA Proponents
By Kathy Valente   |   02.23.18
