Ben Bull: Special Rights For Some Undercut Equal Rights For All

    ADF Attorney Benjamin Bull Townhall : While we sit in our soft chairs watching big screen TVs and complaining that microwave popcorn takes too long to cook, activists backing the homosexual agenda relentlessly march on. Availing themselves of avenues that are notably left of center, both culturally and politically, they incrementally pursue and secure special treatment under the guise of “rights” and “equality.” And while we’ve seen this happen at many levels of government—both state and national—we err greatly if we fail to see the inroads being made on an international level as well.

Top Chile court overwhelmingly rejects same-sex ‘marriage’

Family, Marriage on Trial in Chile “I believe the intent here is to fabricate an illegitimate transnationalist jurisprudence to alter the essential foundations of Chilean society — family and marriage,” Bishop Juan Ignacio González Errazuriz of San Bernardo, Chile, told the Register via email. “This is undoubtedly a very grave concern.” Bishop González’s concerns about the Atala case are shared by the Alliance Defense Fund, an Arizona-based legal organization dedicated to protection of religious freedom, the sanctity of life and marriage and the family. The commission’s decision contained four fundamental flaws, according to a legal brief the ADF submitted last month to the Inter-American Court.

Do For-Profit Schools Outperform Non-Profit Schools in the Chilean Voucher System?

    National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education: “As school choice and privatization schemes increase in popularity, the effects of different forms of school sponsorship on student performance are increasingly a subject of debate among policymakers and scholars. One view is that the necessity of making a profit may motivate for-profit firms to make efficient decisions that will translate into better managed schools and ultimately into higher student achievement. Another perspective is that non-profits are socially mission-driven and may provide a greater focus on serving disadvantaged families with the greater costs of educational investments needed by these children. Using Chile as a case study, Gregory Elacqua weighs the evidence supporting these theories.”
