Do Christians Regularly Violate the Separation of Church and State?
By Laurie Higgins   |   09.15.21
Many Christians and non-Christians misunderstand the relationship between morality and religion. Many mistakenly believe that morality is the same thing as religion and, therefore, mistakenly believe that they should not advocate for policies that reflect their moral beliefs. But morals...
Executive Order Makes Biden Regime Lone Wolf in Tyrannical Vaccine Mandates
By James M. Odom   |   09.14.21
The United States was legally founded upon the principle of limited government, under which at the time of the founding, the federal government mandating specific medical treatment to individual citizens would never have been tolerated.
Resources to Fight Tyrannical Vaccine Mandates
By James M. Odom   |   08.31.21
Vaccines are not a threat to liberty. However, being forced to submit to taking medicine and/or a medical procedure that is both controversial and troublesome to many of us is. Vaccine mandates are a violation of the unalienable individual right...
The Cutting Issues in Ministerial Exception Cases
08.28.21
The U.S. Supreme Court in Hosanna-Tabor (2012) and Our Lady of Guadalupe (2020) embraced what Justice Samuel Alito described as the “so-called ministerial exception,” a doctrine that exempts religious organizations from discrimination laws when dealing with certain employees.  Why “so-called”?  Because the exemption covers more than just ministers or the top officials of a religious organization.  But whom else?  Certainly some teachers in church elementary schools, as the U.S. Supreme Court held in both of those cases.
Hobby Lobby Loses Right to Maintain Sex-Separate Bathrooms
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.20.21
An Illinois Appellate Court just ruled that Hobby Lobby violated the Illinois Human Rights Act by refusing to allow a male employee who masquerades as a woman and goes by the name of “Meggan Renee” Sommerville to use the women’s restroom. If this decision is not appealed and overturned, it will mean the end of sex-separated private spaces in all companies in Illinois, including stores and restaurants.
Woke Warriors at the Pentagon Labeling Religious Service Members as “Extremists”
06.26.21
Once upon a time, the LAST place you would expect to find attacks on our constitutional freedoms would be inside the U.S. Military.

However, over the last several months, there’s been an alarming surge of anti-religious bias and censorship against military chaplains and service members who express or live out their religious beliefs.
Illinois Congressional Rep. Newman’s Dumb Plea for Equality Act
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.30.21
How can someone as foolish and manipulative as U.S. Representative Marie Newman get elected to Congress? Oh, yeah, she ran in Illinois, the land that once gave the nation Abe Lincoln but now saddles the nation with Dick Durbin, Tammy...
The Bigoted Call to Ban ORU from the NCAA
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.26.21
The founding of higher education in America was almost entirely Christian, to the point that, even by 1881, “80 percent of the colleges in the United States were church related and private.” As one Christian author pointed out, “106 of...
IFI Urges Supreme Court to Take a Case to Stop Discrimination Against Religious Schools
03.12.21
Last Thursday, IFI’s lawyers filed a “friend of the court” brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to take a case (Carson v. Makin) that could end discrimination against religious schools. The case involves a Maine school program that pays the private school tuition for students who live in an area that lacks a public high school. The schools eligible to receive this tuition are, according to the Maine Department of Education, private secular schools and nominally religious schools, but not schools that intentionally teach subjects from a religious perspective.
Questions for Sex-Eradicationists, Lawmakers, and School Leaders
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.11.21
The radical “Equality” Act—the pet project of sex-eradicationists (also known as “trans”-cultists)—is now in the U.S. Senate. The act would force the federal government to treat the nonsensical notion that spirit humans can be “trapped” in the wrong material bodies as if those disordered feelings constitute a reality equivalent to biological sex and one about which no one may make judgments. In other words, the Equality Act would enshrine in federal law a Gnostic superstition.
Elim Romanian Pentecostal Church v. Pritzker
By James M. Odom   |   03.06.21
While a number of cases have reached the U.S. Supreme Court challenging government pandemic restrictions that limit churches’ and members free exercise of religion, Elim Romanian Pentecostal Church v. Pritzker presents direct legal conflict between jurisdictions (traditionally the primary basis...
U.S. House Passes “In-Equality” Act
By David E. Smith   |   02.26.21
On Thursday afternoon, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 224 to 206 to pass the so-called "Equality Act" (H.R. 5), which would enshrine “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” as legally protected classes in a myriad of federal laws. The vote fell along party lines, with only three Republicans voting with the Democratic majority, and two Republicans not voting.
Religious Liberty is not for Churches, says Biden’s Proposed HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra
02.15.21
Joe Biden has announced his intent to nominate California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to lead the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). But Becerra raises deep concerns among religious conservatives fighting to protect their First Amendment free speech and religious liberty rights. They are leary of Becerra because he defended the anti-free speech California law (AB 775), struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court, that forced pro-life care centers to promote state-sponsored abortions.
David French Says Christian Trump Voters Owe America An Apology
By Laurie Higgins   |   01.25.21
Some IFI readers may remember attorney and evangelical Christian, David French, former writer for National Review whom many conservatives formerly admired. Not so much anymore. He spent much of the last four years trying to ensure that Donald Trump did not win a second term. Apparently, French plans to spend 2021 defending his own honor and urging Christians to repent of their sin of voting for a corrupt man—no, you silly people, not the corrupt Biden. In French’s view, voting for the morally corrupt, cognitively impaired, Chinese Communist colluder Joe Biden is a justifiable act for Christians.
