A Summary Response to the Memorandum Issued by the Office of the General Counsel to the Florida Senate Regarding Conscience Clause for Adoption Agencies and Why HB-7111 is Needed to Protect Florida’s Faith-Based Child Placement Agencies

On April 14, 2015, the Office of the General Counsel for the Florida Senate released a legal opinion in a memorandum regarding “Conscience Clause for adoption agencies.” (Hereinafter referred to as the “Opinion.”) In the opening paragraph of the Opinion, the primary conclusion of the 5 page document states: “I believe that religious organizations would be granted no significant legal protection by House Bill 7111 in light of the Florida Religious Freedom Restoration Act (FRFRA) and its interpreting case law.”

There are a number of legal issues overlooked by the Opinion and therefore the following “Additional Comments” are being presented to members of the Florida Senate for their consideration: Continue reading

As if the whole struggle depended on me alone

My Body, My Choice. My Soda, Not My Choice? More Liberal Hypocrisy?

If the liberal left battles School Choice by opposing charter and private school funding, Economic Choice by pushing higher taxes, Insurance/Health Care Choice by supporting Obamacare, Land Use Choice by blocking land development, Parental Choice by attempting to pass child abuse laws for spanking, and Voter Choice by supporting term limits why is “CHOICE” one of the main foundations on which most liberals stand?

The fact is that while all of these “choice” issues are important, none is as critical as Life. None ends a human life and deems it “ok” because it was someone’s personal choice. Continue reading

EEOC Says Transgender Employees Protected

The EEOC isn’t a court or Congress, but this decision gives us a very clear view of how the Commission will view charges of discrimination brought by transgender individuals (although it does not definitively determine how courts will rule).
