By Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit - We cannot claim to truly appreciate the Founders and the nation they secured for us while simultaneously refusing to do what it takes to keep and maintain this nation... The Founders understood that there is a time to stand and fight. They also understood that one of the most critical times to stand and fight is when truth, justice, and freedom are at stake. They would be shocked to hear that Scripture is being used today to justify staying on the sidelines while these very principles are being destroyed. They would be doubly shocked to learn that those taking this approach are the very people who profess to love truth, justice, and freedom.

Decades earlier he could foresee what might happen. And tried to reroute people... “The subject of this telecast is patriotism,” he told his 1960s TV audience. He titled the talk Quo Vadis, America?

The statement was issued last month to raise concerns about the CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater New York (PPGNY), Laura McQuade (who has since been fired). In the statement, the employees expressed a litany of grievances against McQuade.

But for the past seven years, they—like many other religious objectors who have participated in the litigation and rulemakings leading up to today’s decision— have had to fight for the ability to continue in their noble work without violating their sincerely held religious beliefs.”
