"With these new threats to religious liberty, the time has now come to enact statute legislation in Ohio to address these new challenges and underscore the Constitutional rights of religious freedom and the practice thereof. No individual should be coerced against their religious conscience. No religious society should be forced by the State or a municipality to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs. It is for that reason that we urge the passage of the Ohio Pastor Protection Act, HB 286."

The War on Coal and what it will mean for your utility costs
Sun, Nov 29th, 2015 9:33:53 pm

Roundtable discussion on the War on Coal with Bob Murray, President and CEO of Murray Energy, Jim Martin of the 60 Plus Foundation, and Congressman Bill Johnson of Ohio's 6th District.

In this program, we discuss the Obama EPA regulations and the devastating impact it is having on the coal industry across the nation, and the impact it will have on rising utility costs for seniors and families on fixed incomes. Mr. Murray is fighting a courageous battle in the courts to save good paying coal jobs and fighting for coal, a cheap, reliable source of energy that has provided reliable electricity for Ohio in its homes and businesses over the years. All of that is being threatened by the reckless Obama Administration's intent on eliminating the coal industry. Congressman Bill Johnson gives an update on what Congress intends to do to stop the assault by the Obama Administration. Here's what you can do to help. Forward this program link on to your friends and family.

Prayerless State of the State Address
Tue, Apr 12th, 2016 9:32:32 pm

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 12, 2016

Prayerless State of the State Address

In a major breach of protocol, the State of the State Address by Governor Kasich before a joint session of the Ohio General Assembly in Marietta last week, did not open with a prayer from the clergy. OCA President Chris Long who was in attendance recounted, "There was a call to order by the Speaker of the House and Senate President, a call to quorum, the presentation of colors by the Honor Guard, and then the Senate President looked down at his notes as to what was next on the program. He seemed to pause as to wonder if they had forgotten something. He then announced Governor Kasich, who walked down the aisle to the stage with members of his cabinet. He greeted the audience, delivered his speech, there was the retirement of colors, and the conclusion of the assembly. What stood out to me and other attendees was the major omission of the opening prayer. This State of the State was held in Marietta in observance of the city's 228th birthday as the first chartered settlement of the Northwest Territory. Article 3 of The Northwest Ordinance states, "Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind..." Given the occasion and setting, it was especially bothersome that prayer was left out.

Since our nation's founding, prayer has been offered before the Continental Congress, the U.S. Congress, and in all 50 states of the union throughout our 240-year history. Prayer and divine guidance has been sought by our elected officials at the opening of each assembly. Before every Ohio House and Senate Session, prayer is offered by a visiting clergy member who has been invited by an elected official of that district for the purpose of offering the prayer.

I began to ask House and Senate Leadership why the prayer was omitted from the program. No one had an immediate answer, and we are still waiting for a response. We also phoned the Governor's Director of Legislative Affairs, Merle Madrid. He has not returned our calls. Since Governor Kasich chose to take the State of the State to remote locations away from Columbus, it is understood that his office has more direct involvement in the program schedule for the State of the State Address. The question of why the Governor and his people removed the prayer from the program has still not been answered, but in an environment when faith is under fire with Bibles being removed from military installations and religious freedom laws being ridiculed by the Governor as unnecessary, it makes one wonder why he now thinks that prayer is unnecessary. We would be interested to hear the Governor's reason for the removal of the opening prayer at his State of the State address."

Ohio Christian Alliance Urges Delay of Implementation of Online Voter Registration in Ohio to Safeguard Ohio's Vote
Fri, Mar 18th, 2016 11:23:58 am

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 26, 2016

Ohio Christian Alliance Urges Delay of Implementation of Online Voter Registration in Ohio to Safeguard Ohio's Vote
S.B. 63, the online voter registration bill, has raised concerns that it may further threaten Ohio's election integrity. Ohio's elections process has been under some scrutiny over the past several years due to an increase in reported voter fraud cases, referenced in the Ohio SOS Post-Election Voter Fraud Reports May 2013, SOS December 2013 Report "Non-U.S. Citizens Register and Vote in the Battleground State of Ohio", SOS report March 12, 2015 in which it was reported that 436 non-U.S. citizens were registered to vote in Ohio, 44 of whom actually cast ballots, and the June 25, 2015 SOS report "14 Individuals Referred for Investigation for Allegedly Illegally Voting." Additionally, Franklin County reported more than 90 cases of double voting in the 2012 Presidential Election as reported in the Columbus Dispatch in June of 2013. Also, nineteen indictments were handed down in Hamilton County.
A state-wide citizens' audit of Ohio county BOE's conducted in the aftermath of the 2012 Presidential Election also indicated a number of irregularities and suspicious activity through eyewitness accounts. What is clear in these reports is that voter fraud is a growing problem in the battleground State of Ohio, and more measures need to be enacted to get out in front of the problem.
Ohio is a must-win state for the campaigns, and there are those who would game the election system to achieve a fraudulent advantage. To enact online voter registration at this time would be ill-advised. There are a number of concerns regarding the security of the online access and process of voter registration that S.B. 63 raises.
What the general public has learned over the last several years is that no website is secure from hackers. When the secure websites of The Pentagon, The White House, The Office of Personnel Management of the U.S. government in which 21.5 million people were exposed, and the web site of Ohio then-Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner have all been hacked, then the insistence that this website will be completely safe is purely conjecture and wishful thinking.
OCA President Chris Long stated, "When it comes to the value of the voting process in our Republic, we need to proceed with extreme caution before the suggestion of online voter registration is seriously considered. This is no time for a cavalier attitude concerning the voter integrity process in Ohio. At a minimum, our suggestion is to delay the implementation of this legislative proposal until 2017, and that a trial run should be conducted to assure that the security of the website platform can be verified before full implementation of online voter registration in the State of Ohio."

WWII Memorial Prayer Act Signed Into Law by The President

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   July 1, 2014 It's official – The President has signed The WWII Memorial Prayer Act (S1044) into law.  Earlier this month, the bill passed The U.S. Senate in a unanimous consent measure just in time for the 70th anniversary observance of the D-Day Landings.  Last week, The U.S. House of Representatives passed the measure overwhelmingly by a vote of 370-12, and yesterday, The President signed the bill into law.   The Ohio Christian Alliance would like to commend the bill's sponsors, Senator Rob Portman (OH) and Senator Mary Landrieu (LA), and Congressman Bill Johnson of Ohio's 6th District, who was the House sponsor, for their support of this historic legislation that will add FDR's D-Day Landing prayer to the WWII memorial in Washington D.C.

On this, the seventieth anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France, the U.S. Senate passed by unanimous consent S 1044 the WWII Memorial Prayer Act.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                            JUNE 6, 2014

On this, the seventieth anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France, the U.S. Senate passed by unanimous consent S 1044 the WWII Memorial Prayer Act. The Ohio Christian Alliance would like to commend the bill's sponsors, Senator Rob Portman (OH) and Senator Mary Landrieu (LA), for their support of this historic legislation that will add FDR's D-Day Landing prayer to the WWII memorial in Washington D.C. This prayer will serve as a lasting tribute to those veterans who served the cause of freedom in defending the world against tyranny and oppression. 

Ohio Christian Alliance President Chris Long stated, "President Roosevelt's prayer articulated the great crusade that was underway to liberate millions suffering under tyranny. He honored the war effort and paid tribute to the fallen and those veterans who fought courageously in the conflict.  It is only fitting that succeeding generations learn of this prayer that was offered at that most poignant moment in our nation's history." 

Ohio's Ban on Human Cloning and Animal-Human Hybrid
Tue, Oct 29th, 2013 5:01:12 pm

Ohio's Ban on Human Cloning and Animal-Human Hybrid

Today, we applaud the reintroduction of Ohio’s Ban on Human Cloning and Animal-Human Hybrid, H.B. 308, introduced by State Representative Andy Thompson of Ohio’s 95th District,  along with eleven House co-sponsors. OCA President Chris Long states, “For the past ten years, OCA along with other pro-life organizations, has been working with members of the Ohio Legislature to ban embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, and in recent years, animal-human hybrid. Some medical laboratories have delved into the surreal world of intermixing animal and human DNA with no legal or moral boundaries. These experimental practices simply are outrageous! Animal-human hybrid research is currently being conducted in England, which many in the international medical community now consider to be a rogue medical state. This experimentation has also been conducted in U.S. laboratories, thus the need for legislative language to provide guardrails.”

Leading the testimony on this legislative ban will be Dr. David Prentice of the Family Research Council who states, “HB 308 provides common sense restrictions on human cloning and animal-human hybrid in Ohio. There are no valid medical or scientific gains that exist or will come from human cloning or hybrid techniques, rather these are abuses of science and should be prohibited.  Our focus should be on lifesaving methods such as adult stem cells that put the patient first.”

Ohio Christian Alliance believes that no human life should begin and end as the subject of an experiment.  We attest that a process that knowingly encourages human life to be created, manipulated for research, and ultimately destroyed is immoral and should be prohibited.  And all who believe that human life, including nascent human life, is a unique and precious gift from our Creator have an obligation to support efforts to ban it.  The bottom line is still that any ban short of a total prohibition on human cloning further devalues the sanctity of human life. Ohio Christian Alliance commends State Representative Andy Thompson and the co-sponsors of H.B. 308 for taking the leadership role in sponsoring this key legislation.
