S.E.M., Vol. 1, No. 7
Federalist 69 - by Alexander Hamilton. 1. What are the chief characters in regards to the President as outlined in the proposed Constitution? 2. Why does Hamilton believe the term of office for a President should be longer than three years? 3. What was the term of office for the king of England and what, in your opinion, is the potential for abuse in such a term? Would the term of office of the king of England present any advantages - in the Founders experience and in your opinion - over over the new American system?

Diet, Gain Weight, Diet, Gain Weight

BY ALAN CARUBA My Mother taught gourmet cooking, haute cuisine, for three decades in the local adult schools, first just to women and later with courses just for men as they too wanted to learn how to make succulent dishes, delicious sauces, and to bake as well. She also wrote a cookbook, “Cooking with Wine and High Spirits”, as well as one [...]

Apologizing for Other People’s Actions

Apologizing for Other People’s Actions

The Moral 'High Horse' DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ There are few moral fashions more tiresome than the largely liberal tendency to “apologize” for the actions of others — whether it’s America’s past sins, the sins of Medieval Christianity, or the actions of your contemporary political opponents. In the Evangelical world, more liberal [...]

No, It’s Not ‘Childish’ to Insist

On a Reporting Requirement for Late-Term Abortions DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ It is extraordinarily disappointing to see Representative Renee Ellmers slamming pro-life groups as “childish” for insisting on a rape-reporting requirement in the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Both the reporting requirement itself and the angry response to [...]

Religious Freedom Victory in Utah

Religious Freedom Victory in Utah

EDWARD WHITE, ACLJ The Utah Supreme Court has upheld a trial court’s ruling in favor of our client, Pleasant Grove City, Utah, in a state-court lawsuit filed by Summum, a religion established in Salt Lake City in 1975 that, according to its tenets, was founded on teachings that predate the ancient Egyptians and are summarized in the Seven [...]

American Sniper & the Left’s Culture-War

American Sniper & the Left’s Culture-War

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ American Sniper isn’t just a hit, it’s on its way to a colossal box-office return. It’s already the tenth-highest grossing movie of 2014 (the movie opened in select theaters at Christmas) and is well on its way to the top three — this despite a furious backlash from the Left, with rhetoric that routinely borders on [...]

The Womb Should Be A Place of Protection

The Womb Should Be A Place of Protection

NICOLE SMITH, ACLJ The womb was designed by God to protect and foster the growth of unborn children and each passing week of development in the womb brings new experiences for the young life, one of which being the ability to feel pain. Extensive research has been conducted over the years on fetal pain, and on January 22nd, the 42nd [...]

Marriage on the Chopping Block?

Marriage on the Chopping Block?

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Within hours after the Supreme Court announced it would decide whether the Constitution requires every state to recognize marriages between persons of the same sex, the New York Times published an editorial gleefully predicting the inevitable outcome. When its ruling comes down in June, the Times assures us, the Supreme [...]

Legislatures Should Curb Judicial Supremacy Over Marriage

Legislatures Should Curb Judicial Supremacy Over Marriage

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY It’s Roe v. Wade all over again, as the Supreme Court is poised to invent a new right to same-sex marriage found nowhere in the four corners of the Constitution. Fortunately, the Founders gave us checks and balances against this overreaching in power. The Framers understood the tendency of a branch of government to [...]

New Math on College Campuses

New Math on College Campuses

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY The New York Times published a provocative news story called “The New Math on Campus.” No, it’s not about the failure of Common Core to teach arithmetic; it’s about the changing ratio of males to females on most college campuses. Long ago when I went to college, campuses were about 70 percent male, and until 1970 [...]

Pastor Saeed Writes Heartbreaking Christmas Letter

Pastor Saeed Writes Heartbreaking Christmas Letter

JORDAN SEKULOW, ACLJ American Pastor Saeed Abedini – a U.S. citizen imprisoned for his Christian faith – has written a heartbreaking letter from his prison cell. He talks about both the difficulty of spending Christmas trapped in a cold dark prison cell and how his faith in Christ is carrying him through this difficult time. He [...]

Defining Pro-Life in Dallas

Defining Pro-Life in Dallas

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Ronald Reagan was elected President in 1980 and was easily re-nominated at the Republican National Convention in 1984 in Dallas. That Convention adopted a Republican Platform that enunciated Reagan-style conservatism and pro-family goals at home and abroad. At Republican Conventions, the rules call for each state to elect [...]

Wolfboy and Princess Cupcake: The Complementarity of the Sexes

PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION AND VALUES Ecumenism at its best was recently demonstrated at the Vatican, where dozens of faith leaders worldwide assembled to remind us of the essential complementarity of men and women in life, marriage, and parenthood. It was enough to prompt a high-five between Pope Francis and evangelical pastor James [...]

Schlafly—Urgent: Vote “No” on ERA in Illinois

LEGISLATIVE ALERT, PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY, EAGLE FORUM We need your immediate help to phone your Illinois State Representative and urge a NO vote on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) – which passed the Illinois Senate this past spring and could come up in the “lame duck” State House at any time before the new legislature convenes on Jan. 14, [...]

United, But Divided

United, But Divided

BY ALAN CARUBA The nation united to celebrate Thanksgiving, but as anyone who follows the polls can confirm, it is sharply divided. In many ways, half of those polled see America opposite to the other half. In early November the Associated Press reported on a survey of 20,168 voters by Edison Research. It included results from interviews as [...]

The Mistake of Unilateral Divorce

The Mistake of Unilateral Divorce

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Many Americans fondly remember Ronald Reagan as one of our greatest presidents, and rightly so, but in my new book, Who Killed the American Family?, I talk about one great mistake he made when he was governor of California. Reagan’s mistake was signing a change in that state’s divorce law in 1969. The change was [...]
