Ensuring Fair Treatment
Just days after a devastating retreat from Afghanistan, America marks a solemn anniversary of the historic terrorist attacks that originally led the U.S. Military to Afghanistan years ago. Most have their vivid memories from the morning of 9/11/2001. Those who lost loved ones, security, or peace that day vow to never let America forget what is at stake. Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William G. Boykin comes with a unique perspective on the events of 9/11 and where we are now 20 years later. With 36-years in the Army, one of the original members of the U.S. Army’s Delta Force, Gen. Boykin knows combat, danger, and what makes it all worthwhile. He does not hold back his lament of how we gave up 20-years of accomplishments – and left Americans and allies behind in danger.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s surprise decision to let the Texas heartbeat law remain in effect is the biggest pro-life victory since 1973 – it’s a game-changer. Every day the law remains in effect, up to 150 lives are potentially saved. Each of the women not seduced into abortion are spared the pain and regret of abortion. But this is only the beginning. The novel approach to this particular heartbeat law can serve as a roadmap for other states looking to save the lives of the preborn and protect their mothers.
Christians are often thought of as defending only their own religious interests in the public square. They are viewed as worrying exclusively about the erosion of their freedom to assemble and to follow their convictions, while not seeming as concerned about publicly defending the rights of Muslims, Hindus, Jews, and atheists to do the same.
Joining CAP’s VP of Advancement is Dr. Andrew T. Walker, an emerging Southern Baptist public theologian, who argues for a robust Christian ethic of religious liberty that helps the church defend religious freedom for everyone in a pluralistic society. Whether explicitly religious or not, says Walker, every person is striving to make sense of his or her life. The Christian foundations of religious freedom provide a framework for how Christians can navigate deep religious difference in a secular age.
