On Thursday's edition of "Washington Watch with Tony Perkins" FRC's Director of the Center for Religious Liberty, Travis Weber, joins Tony to give his analysis on the U.S. Supreme Court hearing of oral arguments in the 6th Circuit Court marriage cases. The Justices asked a lot of the right questions, hopefully, they'll rule in favor of natural marriage. Also, Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) is here to highlight her battle against D.C.'s Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act. What the law really does is force faith groups to hire people who don't lineup with their core values.

Take a Stand for the Freedom to Believe

One of the biggest threats America faces today is one that undermines the very fabric of our society. More than ever before in the history of our nation, the freedom to believe -- and to live according to those beliefs -- is under assault. Faithful Americans across the country are incurring the cost of what it means to stand on principle for their beliefs. Some have endured government punishment and others have lost their livelihoods.

We want to tell their stories so all can see that these are not the isolated incidents that the Left would have us believe.

Take a Stand for the Freedom to Believe!

While some political and corporate leaders have capitulated to the demands of the anti-religious Left, there are courageous men, women, and young people standing up for biblical truth all across the nation.

It's a place where you can learn about the stories of those who are standing in the face of government punishment and financial pressure, and as more modern-day heroes of faith are found, we will add their stories. I also ask you to ... (more)

American People Will Not Accept Redefinition of Marriage

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement after Tuesday’s oral arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court in Obergefell v. Hodges – the case considering whether the federal Constitution requires the states to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples:

“After today, we are more hopeful the Court will get it right, but I do know that regardless of what their decision is, it will not settle this issue...

“There is no broad social consensus, and there is no global consensus that society would be better served by redefining marriage to include same-sex couples. To the contrary, America remains deeply divided over this issue and if the Supreme Court forces a redefinition it will only further divide the nation."

by Pat Fagan

On April 27, 2015 Maryland Governor Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency in response to the growing violence and unrest in Baltimore City.
