Five Lessons The GOP Needs To Learn From The Catastrophic Re-Election of President Obama

On Wednesday morning, half of America woke up to the grim realization that Barack Obama is still President and will be for another four years. Despite months of frantic and tireless work, the Republican Party came up short of ousting the President, and to top it all off, they not only failed to gain a majority in the Senate, but instead lost three Senate seats.

How Will the EU Court of Human Rights Define Religious Freedom?

Sometime next year we’ll hear rulings from the European Court of Human Rights on two landmark cases that may set the tone for the future of religious freedom in European workplaces and outline the rights of businesses in disputes regarding employee practices. In a showdown that has the potential to become a fascinating clash of ideals, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) legal firm will be representing four aggrieved UK plaintiffs who claim they were discriminated against by their employers as a result of their Christian faith. One case, Eweida and Chaplin v. United Kingdom, involves plaintiffs Nadia Eweida and...
