How Christian Universities Are Becoming a Battleground for LGBT Rights
MORGAN MITCHELL | Newsweek
Christian Ortega got an unpleasant surprise when he reapplied to California’s Biola University after deciding to take a semester off. Ortega was highly invested in his education and life at the private, evangelical Christian school when he attended in 2010—holding a position as a student ambassador, running a blog for the school, and working with the admissions department to call prospective students who wanted to know more about the university. He’d had the job for two years, and became friends with his colleagues.

Deconstructing the Left: The Environment is Not A Left Wing Issue
Dr. David Cowan
With the implosion of the Soviet Union, the ideologies of communism and socialism essentially disintegrated. Or at least, we saw the disintegration of the idea that a single ideology could command the attention of whole nations or large enough mobs to destabilize society.

How the Same-Sex Marriage Case Might Affect the Texas Abortion Law
By Kyle Bryant
By now it is not news: on June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that all states must license same-sex marriages. Many people heralded this decision as an historic win for equality and freedom. While that claim may have philosophical merit, the decision is a radical departure from the Supreme Court’s usual legal analysis. And the underlying reasoning may affect much more than marriage. This ruling may guide the Court to strike down Texas’s new abortion restrictions, effectively keeping open dozens of abortion clinics that would have otherwise shut down.

By Sam Webb
Religious liberty is “the condition in which individuals or groups are permitted without restraint to assent to and, within limits, to express and act upon religious convictions and identity free of coercive interference or penalty imposed by outsiders, including the state.” The 800th anniversary of Magna Carta was June 15, 2015, and Magna Carta set forth, for the first time in Western law, the revolutionary idea that all people are subject to the rule of law. Magna Carta propounded 63 distinct liberties, first of which was the freedom of the English Church: “In the first place we grant to God and confirm by this our present charter for ourselves and our heirs in perpetuity that the English Church is to be free and to have all its rights fully and its liberties entirely.”
