    Bob Unruh at WND: “The state’s constitution doesn’t recognize ‘same-sex marriage,’ but officials with the Alliance Defending Freedom said it simply was the government imposing ‘a new belief system upon [bakery owner] Jack [Phillips], one that is fundamentally at odds with his conscience and his liberty.’”

“Ariz. bill would protect those denying same-sex wedding services” | The New American

    The New American: “Most states where same-sex marriage is legal have exemptions for religious organizations, but not for private businesses or individuals. The rights enumerated in the Constitution, however, including the First Amendment right to free exercise of religion, are rights guaranteed to persons. ‘In America, people should be free to live and work according to their faith, and the government shouldn’t be able to tell us we can’t do that,’ said Joseph E. La Rue, the legal counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal organization based in Scottsdale, Arizona. ‘Faith shouldn’t be something we have to leave inside our house.’”

    Virtue Online: “The ‘most violent anti-Christian pogrom of the early 21st century,’ though, occurred in the northeastern Indian state of Orissa in 2008. Perhaps 500 Christians died in multiple riots, often hacked to death with machetes by Hindu radicals who also destroyed 5,000 homes and 350 churches and schools. Yet authorities resisted effective judicial action and even threatened false accusations against victims, lawyer Tehmina Arora from the Indian branch of Alliance Defending Freedom criticized. From 827 filed complaints, only 512 charges resulted, leading to 75 cases with 477 convictions, primarily for petty property offenses; only nine convictions involved killings.”

The University has yet to respond.”
