Religious Freedom passes the Indiana Senate

Today, the Indiana Senate overwhelmingly passed SB 101, the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This bill, also known as the Indiana Hobby Lobby bill or the Indiana RFRA will protect Hoosiers who are left to the whim of activist judges who could arbitrarily limit religious practice and force Hoosiers to compromise their beliefs. This bill acts as […]

UPDATE: Who Should We Trust, Parents or the State?

Update:  Just  moments ago, the House narrowly defeated HB 1359 on a 44-51 vote.

When Parents Don’t Obey the Political Do-Gooders

Puppies are cute. The sky is blue. Bacon tastes good. I am against cancer. I love my 13 year-old daughter.

Isn’t the Constitution enough? The answer SHOULD be a resounding yes. […]

“State Run Media” or “Medicaid Expansion?”

Wanted…. a few good men/women. #standforlife

Let me paint a picture for you. This is a picture of a 20 week old baby in the womb. This baby is what the new GOP majority in congress is playing political maneuvers and games with. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would prohibit abortion after 20 weeks from fertilization in order to […]

A Call for Empowerment: Liberating Indiana Schools for Success

Last week Kosciusko Silent NO More joined nearly 40 conservative groups around the state of Indiana to sign a Conservative Education Platform. In the recent months and years, our children’s education has been trapped in a bitter battle between Republicans and Democrats. Something has been lost…<<common sense>>…and our children are suffering for it. Politicians have […]

Why Indiana MUST pass a Freedom of Conscience and Religion Bill.

If you read the news this week, when Senator Scott Schneider announced his intention to file the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, (you will also hear it entitled the Freedom of Conscience bill, Hobby Lobby Bill, or RFRA), you would have thought someone had caught their pants on fire the way they hollered! This bill was written […]
