    Town Hall: Second, you can call the folks at the Alliance Defending Freedom (see www.TellADF.org). I began working together with these guys in the spring of 2006 – just months before they would represent me in a First Amendment retaliation case. I often spoke at campuses with patently unconstitutional policies and tried to challenge those really bad policies by finding really good plaintiffs. We overturned numerous policies by working together. Best of all, many of the students that decided to stand up earned names for themselves and enhanced their resumes – not to mention their standing in the conservative movement.

The magic spell of “Separation of Church and State!”

    The Stream: “Last I heard, we had separation of church and state in this country,” declared a congressman from Colorado during the debate over health care. “I’ve got to say that I think the Catholic bishops and all of the other groups shouldn’t have input.” He was upset that the Catholic bishops had insisted that the health care bill not include abortion.The Church should just shut up. Christians had no right to speak, as Christians, in public affairs.
