Erwin Chemerinsky: Has the Supreme Court lost faith in the American court system?

    Erwin Cherminsky at the LaTimes.com: Has the Supreme Court lost faith in the American court system? That is a strange question to ask about the justices who sit at the top of the country’s judicial hierarchy. But in case after case in the just-completed term, the court, usually in 5-4 decisions with the conservatives in the majority, denied access to the courts.

Alan E. Sears: The Foundation of our Independence

    ADF President and General Counsel Alan E. Sears at Townhall: President Calvin Coolidge saw this clearly. And during a speech in Philadelphia on the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration, he said, “In its main features the Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document.” In other words, every claim, every declaration, and every example of proper governance and natural rights contained in the Declaration are ultimately rooted in the existence and person of God.

MN School District Faces Legal Threat Over “Sexual Orientation” Policy

    The New American: Following the threats from the two liberal groups, Jeremy Tedesco of the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), a pro-family legal advocacy organization, wrote a letter to Carlson encouraging him and district officials to stand firm in the policy. “School districts should not be bullied into taking the side of homosexual activists,” wrote Tedesco. “Parents rightly believe that public schools are a place for education, not sexual indoctrination. The Anoka-Hennepin School District’s policy is entirely appropriate and legally sound.” Tedesco noted that SPLC/NCLR letter “plainly misinterprets the District’s Policy, is inaccurate as to the law, and is heavy on hyperbole,” adding that the two homosexual legal groups seemed “more concerned with pushing their agenda than with offering real solutions to the problems of bullying….”

Gov. Rick Perry Breaks With His Former Patron, George W. Bush

    NYTimes.com: Mr. Perry’s public statements exposed a long-simmering rivalry that had been little known outside the political fraternity here but underscores the rightward drift of the Republican Party since Mr. Bush was president. More acutely, Mr. Perry’s criticism holds potential peril and benefit for him should he decide to mount a presidential campaign, allowing him to establish an identity distinct from Mr. Bush but risking a guerrilla campaign against him by the former president’s inner circle.

Liu Junning: The Ancient Roots of Chinese Liberalism

    Liu Junning at WSJ.com: China has indeed made great strides since 1978′s “Reform and Opening” in alleviating poverty, opening up to the world, and making slow steps down the road of legal reform.
