    Aiken Standard: For those that say there is no separation of church and state and that it’s not in the Constitution, then you’re in for a big surprise. The senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian legal group, has been quoted as saying, “It makes no sense to tax churches and to limit their ability to provide their services, and it does damage to the constitutional separation between church and state.” | See Erik Stanley response

Chaplains predicted to resist ‘gay’-ban repeal: Opponents demanding hearings from House Republicans

    Brian Fitzpatrick writes at WorldNetDaily: Though they may be involved in implementing DADT repeal training, and their ministries will be directly affected, the chaplains still have no idea what the training will consist of, said Alliance Defense Fund attorney Daniel Blomberg. ADF, a defender of civil and religious liberties, represents both military chaplains and endorsers. “I have not heard anything regarding specifics,” said Blomberg. “A pastor would be free to preach his beliefs about homosexuality, according to the Pentagon, but you don’t know what a chaplain can do in a counseling situation or an ethical situation. Could a chaplain refuse to allow a married homosexual couple to participate in counseling for married couples, or refuse to hire a homosexual to be a children’s church teacher? None of these issues are being answered, and that’s a real problem.”

Unions to Taxpayers: “Where’s the Cash”

    Kyle Olson writes at Townhall: “One of the most disturbing results of an adult-focused public education system is the constant focus on money. There is an insatiable thirst on the part of Big Labor to constantly increase spending on public education, because the teachers’ unions are mostly concerned with their pensions, paychecks and the union coffers.”

Culhane: Will we see more straight civil unions?

    Law Professor John Culhane writes at “The list of states willing to grant same-sex couples the full benefits of marriage grew by one on Monday, when Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed that state’s civil union law. The law looks quite similar to measures enacted in several other states, except for this one, crucial difference: Opposite-sex couples are also permitted to enter into civil unions . . . ”
