The One-Sided Din Over Taxes
By Robert Knight   |   01.11.18
As we stand on the threshold of a new year, a phrase from Simon and Garfunkel’s song “The Boxer” sums up why America’s division into two warring worldviews seems to be widening. “A man hears what he wants to hear...
Asinine Idea to Protect Christian Vendors from Lawsuits
By Laurie Higgins   |   11.30.17
Legal affairs columnist at The Daily Beast, Jay Michaelson, has offered the dumbest idea yet to solve the problem of homosexual couples trying to force Christians to provide goods and services for their faux-weddings. Michaelson, who writes on “law, religion, and sexuality,” is a graduate of Columbia University and Yale Law School, which provides clear evidence that intelligence and prestigious educations provide no bulwark against foolishness.
Tell Corporations to Stop Funding the Far Left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center
By David E. Smith   |   11.15.17
The evidence against the far Left-wing agenda of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is overwhelmingly plain. Yet, this sinister agenda is ignored by many corporations, politicians, academics and the so-called "news" media. With their assistance, the SPLC regularly maligns conservative voices, especially Christian organizations that promote traditional sexual morality.  Illinois Family Institute has been targeted by the SPLC since 2008.

By Laurie Higgins   |   11.06.17

As Evidence of Election Fraud Emerges, the Media Wants to Keep You in the Dark
09.27.17
If you have no idea what happened at the second meeting of President Donald Trump’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity in New Hampshire on Sept. 12, I’m not surprised. Though a horde of reporters attended the meeting, almost all of the media stories that emerged from it simply repeated the progressive left’s mantra that the commission is a “sham.” Almost no one covered the substantive and very concerning testimony of 10 expert witnesses on the problems that exist in our voter registration and election system.
Kill HB 40: Wombs Should be Sanctuary Spaces and No-Kill Shelters
By Laurie Higgins   |   09.22.17
If signed into law by Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, HB 40, which passed in both the Illinois House and Senate, will force taxpayers to subsidize abortions for women on Medicaid and for women covered by state employee health insurance. Feticidal maniacs in Illinois—including lawmakers—are desperate to have Rauner sign this bill into law...
Stop the Presses! Columnist Admits He’s Not a Theologian!
By Laurie Higgins   |   09.01.17
Leftist Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke has penned a column titled on the recently released Nashville Statement. His article is titled “150 Evangelicals DENY love for LGBT people.” The Nashville Statement is a critically important and desperately needed document that succinctly affirms theologically orthodox positions on homosexuality, marriage, and the objective goodness and immutability of maleness and femaleness...
A Clear Reading of SB 31 Reveals Illinois is Now a Sanctuary State
By John Biver   |   08.30.17
The Illinois Family Institute always appreciates when its work is read by more people, and we benefit when others bring attention to our work. Over the years when writing op eds I’ve made mistakes — failed to correct typos or...
“In a Heartbeat”: Propaganda for Children
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.23.17
Anyone who doubts that “LGBTQQAP” activists and their “allies” are coming after the hearts and minds of other people’s children should watch this sweet, well-crafted, animated short film about an adorable, red-headed, closeted middle school boy whose secret crush on another boy is exposed when his anthropomorphized heart leaps from his chest and pursues the boy with whom the main character is besotted.
Target’s Dangerous Policy Leads to More Victims, Another Arrest
By Tim Wildmon   |   08.23.17
Target’s dangerous policy of allowing men into women’s dressing rooms has claimed another innocent victim of sexual voyeurism. According to NBC10 News, a 36-year-old man secretly filmed women trying on clothes in the dressing room of a New Jersey Target...
The Media’s Glaring Double Standards on Violence and Hate
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   08.21.17
When protestors pulled down a Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina, NPR reported that they were chanting, "No KKK, No Fascist USA." Actually, they were chanting, "No cops, no KKK, no fascist USA!" Why did NPR omit "No cops"?
Hollywood Profanity Wears Thin with Viewers, but So Does Discernment
By Micah Clark   |   08.12.17
There is a new Harris Poll that finds that audiences are growing tired of profanity-filled movies coming from Hollywood.  However the study also seems to reveal a lack of discernment as well in my opinion.  Perhaps the pervasiveness of profanity...
To “Trans” Cultists, What IS Maleness or Femaleness?
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.11.17
Earlier this week, I mentioned that I had submitted a commentary on the “trans” ideology to the Chicago Tribune on July 31 that was rejected. I noted this only because several days after I submitted this commentary, Trib reporter Kim Janssen wrote an article about my article that urges Christians to exit public schools in part because public schools promote the irrational, incoherent, and destructive “trans” ideology. Here is that rejected commentary...
