    Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski at the Washington Examiner: First of a series of three excerpts from “Resurgent: How Constitutional Conservatism Can Save America,” published by Threshold Editions of Simon & Schuster.
    There are many trying to define the current political crisis as entirely about the cost of government and size of government. They fail to understand the big picture of the interdependent nature of the American body politic and the precepts that are absolutely essential to sustaining limited government over a multigenerational time span.

NC Register: “Strong Catholic Identity Can Protect Religious Liberty”

    NCRegister.com: The problem is that the NLRB’s attempts to force Catholic colleges to comply with federal labor laws are part of a larger trend, described by Kevin Theriot of the Alliance Defense Fund in a recent analysis for the Center for the Advancement of Catholic Higher Education. “Federal and state laws are increasingly being used to coerce religious institutions into actions and commitments that violate deeply held religious convictions and moral principles,” Theriot writes . . . “But an educational institution that veers from a religious founding will probably not be able to demonstrate that it is a religious organization,” Theriot warns. Authentically Catholic colleges have an “advantage” over other religious colleges because they have been given clear standards to follow in the 1990 apostolic constitution Ex Corde Ecclesiae.
