Rev. Eric C. Redmond: “Obama, gay marriage & and the black church vote”

    Eric C. Redmond at Baptist Press: Your recent expression of your understanding of ‘marriage’ is troubling to us. There are no tenets that can be identified as Christian that allow for anyone to view homosexuality as acceptable. The Christian faith holds to the Bible as the truth, for it has given ample evidence of being the very words of God to man. It is the Bible that reveals marriage to be a union between a man and a woman; it is the Bible that reveals all homosexual activity to be sinful. Therefore we would reject your so-called Christian understanding of same-sex marriage as uninformed and false.

States should fold on Internet gambling

    Christian Science Monitor: California and New Jersey, each seek more revenue, are leading the states toward Internet gambling, starting with online poker. But this all-too-easy form of gaming would come with at a high cost to society – and government . . . Californians should especially worry about the undue influence of money on lawmakers. Six online-gaming operators have spent $7.7 million on political contributions, gifts to officials, and lobbying in Sacramento over the past two years, according to the Los Angeles Times.

OH: Council prayer sparks controversy

    Mount Vernon News: The removal of the invocation from the legislative meeting of Mount Vernon City Council did more than raise a few eyebrows on bowed heads at City Hall on Monday night. Instead of presenting a prayer, typically led by various city pastoral leaders, after the meeting was called to order, City Council President Bruce Hawkins offered the opportunity for those wanting to participate in the prayer to join in prior to the start of the meeting.

An Act of Courage | Conway Daily Sun

    Robert Gillette at the Conway Daily Sun: The past two years have also brought a radical departure from a legislative tradition in which bills were home-grown to meet New Hampshire’s specific needs. Under Speaker William O’Brien, the House is outsourcing the actual writing of its social legislation to special-interest groups like the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), a conservative Christian organization based in Arizona and Washington, D.C. (The ADF is also allied with New Hampshire Congressman Frank Guinta, who co-sponsored House Amendment 95 in February to defund Planned Parenthood.) HB 228 originated in 2011 as a bill explicitly banning all public funding for Planned Parenthood . . . Meanwhile, the ADF and allies regrouped and responded to the Indiana setback with a more intricate attack on Planned Parenthood, with the ironic title of “Whole Woman’s Health Funding Priorities Act.” The new ADF draft law was introduced early this year in as many as a dozen state legislatures including Arizona, Iowa, Oklahoma, Idaho – and New Hampshire.

Obama Health Plan Will Squeeze the Middle Class

    NCPA Policy Digest: Many people currently get their health coverage from work, and they benefit from an implicit subsidy built into that workplace coverage that lets them spend pretax dollars through their employer to purchase health insurance. Depending on their tax rate, that subsidy helps offset some of the premium costs, says Scott Gottlieb, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Under the Obama plan, however, many of these families could instead find themselves buying their health insurance on the new state-based exchanges that get started in January 2014.

WSJ: “Gay? Yay! Straight news gives way to propaganda.”

    James Taranto at the Wall Street Journal: But in reading the coverage of Obama’s same-sex marriage announcement last week, we’ve been struck by how much even news reporters seem to have given up evenhandedness to propagandize on behalf of one side of a divisive social issue. The most interesting aspect of this propaganda is that it seeks to deliver two contrary messages: that Obama’s declaration was a great act of courage and that it entails no political risk.

The Union Pension Bomb

    Wall Street Journal (via Google): Imagine the panic if investors discovered that many of the nation’s biggest public companies had hidden liabilities so large as to make them worth a fraction of their value. That’s something akin to the shock created by the recent Credit Suisse report on multi-employer pension plans.
