Breaking News: for Religious Liberty from the U.S. Supreme Court.
Mon, Jun 4th, 2018 12:32:35 pm

The following is from the Reuters News service .....

Supreme Court rules for Colorado baker who wouldn't make same-sex wedding cake

The justices, in a 7-2 decision, faulted the Colorado Civil Rights Commission's handling of the claims brought against Jack Phillips, saying it had showed a hostility to religion. In doing so, the commission violated his religious rights under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

But the court did not issue a definitive ruling on the circumstances under which people can seek exemptions from anti-discrimination laws based on their religious views.

The commission had said Phillips violated the Colorado anti-discrimination law that bars businesses from refusing service based on race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation by rebuffing gay couple David Mullins and Charlie Craig in 2012.

Two of the court's four liberals, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, joined the five conservative justices in the ruling authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Ohio Christian Alliance President Chris Long stated the following concerning today's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. "We celebrate today's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in favor of Religious Liberty in the Colorado baker's case. Today the court reinforced the First Amendment rights of every American to freely live out their religious beliefs according to the dictates of their own conscience as they see fit, not what the state dictates they should be. We hope this sends a clear message to legislatures and office holders that Religious Freedom needs to be taken seriously when considering laws and statutes."

Freedom Banquet a big success!
Sat, May 5th, 2018 1:08:14 pm

Thanks to all who made the Spring Freedom Banquet a big success!  (Here are the pics)


This year's Spring Freedom Banquet was a rousing success, thanks to the inspirational messages delivered by our speakers Bill Federer and Chad Connelly. The evening's focus centered on our support for the State of Israel, with a special recognition of the President's announcement to fulfill a long-standing commitment to the people of Israel to recognize Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel. Next month, in recognition of the 70th year of the State of Israel, President Trump will dedicate the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. OCA President Chris Long shared about his recent trip to Israel and how God is forging a unique bond between Christians and Jews. Joining Chris Long in presenting the OCA 2018 Freedom Award was Michael Goldstein, State Director of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, the organization that is working with Ohio Christian Alliance for the passage of HCR 10

An open letter to Members of the Ohio Legislature:  
Wed, May 16th, 2018 2:44:53 pm

                                                                                                                           

An open letter to Members of the Ohio Legislature:

 

Due to the unexpected resignation of Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, the Ohio House majority must vote on a new Speaker to finish out the current session. Because the business of The People’s House must continue in the 132 General Assembly, we the undersigned suggest the following:

 

In light of the FBI investigation of former House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, we suggest that a Speaker be chosen from among the Majority who is not currently part of the leadership team, who is not running for re-election, and who could serve on an interim basis until the end of the current session. A new Speaker could then be elected after the fall Election. This would allow for the House to continue its session without a lengthy interruption.

 

It is important to put The People’s business first.

 

Sincerely,

Christopher R. Long                                              Linda Harvey

School Choice in Ohio now at risk with the sudden closure of the online school ECOT.
Sun, Jan 21st, 2018 10:20:44 am

School Choice in Ohio now at risk with the sudden closure of the online school ECOT.

A Statement from the Ohio Christian Alliance:

"On Thursday when the ODE (Ohio Department of Education) turned down the latest offer of restructured payments by ECOT school, they all but set in motion the immediate closure of the online institution ECOT schools. In doing so, they put in jeopardy the 12,000 students currently enrolled in the school. The magnitude of this decision is equivalent to a major Ohio school district being forced to close in the middle of the school year. State superintendent Paolo DeMaria and his administration had no contingency plan for these students. Parents and students are now scrambling to find other schools to enter, including the 2,287 seniors. This crisis could have been averted by the ODE and the Kasich administration. Their failure to provide a workable solution that would have at least finished the school year for ECOT and its students, is in our opinion gross incompetence and negligent. We would hope that this decision was not made for political purposes. That would be unconscionable as it is affecting so many school children who depend on this online Ohio school for their continuing education. We would hope that the legislature would act quickly to remedy this situation."

We agree with the following Statement by State Representative Andrew Brenner Chairman, Ohio House Education & Career Readiness Committee.
"This could have been avoided had the department of education set up a payment plan that would have allowed the students to finish the school year at ECOT. I warned the Department of this months ago, so their lack of consideration makes me concerned about the long-term ramifications of School choice in Ohio. Since ECOT is now closing the Ohio Department of Education has the responsibility to make sure all 12,000 kids are quickly and properly placed into alternative situations."

Addressing the Moral Crisis at the Ohio Statehouse – A Statement from the Ohio Christian Alliance

Addressing the Moral Crisis at the Ohio Statehouse – A Statement from the Ohio
Christian Alliance November 28th 2017

A moral crisis has emerged at the Ohio Statehouse in recent weeks and requires the
attention of people of goodwill to address it. The serious nature of the moral failures of
some people who serve the public trust in their capacity as public servants has cast a dark
shadow over The People's House. That is why we the undersigned urge a call to action.
Here is what is known, according to recent media reports, and it is disturbing. Senator
Cliff Hite of the 1st Ohio Senate District recently resigned because of his inappropriate
contact with female staffers at the Ohio Statehouse. His seat is now vacant. It was then
reported by the House leadership that Rep. Mike Henne had been ordered to undergo
sensitivity training 2-1/2 years ago due to inappropriate remarks. The House has stated
they will release the documents in relation to the incident, but have not yet done so. Then
came the news of Ohio Senate Democratic chief of staff Michael Premo's sudden
resignation, about which no details were provided by Democratic Senate leadership.
Senate President Larry Obhof has requested to speak to the woman who filed the
complaint against Premo. - Click here for the full statement

Ohio Christian Alliance Urges Delay of Implementation of Online Voter Registration in Ohio to Safeguard Ohio's Vote

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 .....
