Religious Rights (Don’t) Matter – Did You Get the Memo?
By: Hallie Neill
“Our religious freedom doesn’t grant us the freedom to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights,” Obama announced recently at the LGBT Gala in New York City.
Wait – what?
We must have missed the memo that our religious freedoms are no longer protected by, oh, you know – the Constitution, which states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”
Obama insists he will fight for the LGBT rights movement of the 3.8% at the peril of the Constitutionally protected religious rights of the 75% of Americans who identify as people of faith – as we careen into a head-on collision.
Though Justice Roberts betrayed America in the Obamacare decision (a tax, you say?) he got it right here in his fervent opposition to the Supreme Court vote: “Many good and decent people oppose same-sex marriage as a tenet of faith, and their freedom to exercise religion is – unlike the right imagined by the majority – actually spelled out in the Constitution.”
The courts are designed to interpret the constitution and the constitutionality of the laws, not create public policy. We discuss the open season on people of faith from bakers, florists, county clerks to photographers. Their crime? Believing in the Biblical definition of marriage.
Can we have our country back, please?
Will Congress legislate yet again to protect the religious freedoms already won with shed blood and treasure? Will We the People embrace our differences and accept that people of faith really mean it. Unlike President Obama who accuses Republicans of using “religious freedom for polls.” We didn’t get that memo either.

Guest Steve “The Dean” Williams, a Relationship Expert and Radio Show Host speaks frankly on how he came to be a relationship expert. He details how some young men in this era lacked the skills the necessary for a healthy relationship because many have been raised without a male role model in the home. He goes on to indicate that these skills are limited because what has been taught is further limited to what was taught in their 5th grade class. He feels strongly that providing his own in-depth experience will help the young dating man to learn to love himself, establish boundaries, and have better communication with women.
Lori Ann Davis, Relationship Expert, Speaker, Radio Show Host, and Author of “Unmasking Secrets to Unstoppable Relationships: How to Find, Keep and Renew Love and Passion in Your Life” delights the listener with an understanding of how communication and being aware of unrealistic expectations placed on others can change relationships. We extend the discussion on relationships beyond the typical one on one interaction to how the techniques she has simplified also applies to a much more broad environment, tying into our commentary on maintaining individual rights.
