Texas Cheerleaders Fight to Promote the God's Word

Cheerleaders at an east Texas highschool are once again defending the right to display Bible verses at football games. Their bold stand has earned national attention and placed them right in the middle of a heated free speech battle.
In this small town of Kountze, Texas, there is overwhelming support for the hometown cheerleaders who simply believe if God is for them, no one can be against them.
Just one look at the banners the Kountze football players run through just before a big game tells you that the Kountze highschool cheerleaders are not typical teenage girls.
The cheerleaders began writing Bible verses on them last Fall.
"We're just all Christians and believe the Bible is from God and so if it's from God, why not?" one cheerleader said. "That's what we were thinking and it's a positive message and it's uplifting."

Ben Carson and Eric Metaxas, who both gained notoriety for their speeches at a National Prayer Breakfast, appeared together Saturday and warned about a loss of religious freedom, at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Md.

The controversy over the Obama administration's birth control mandate is about religious freedom, not contraception, Metaxas argued.
Paraphrasing how he views the government's position, Metaxas said, "We will force you to violate your conscience. Why? Because we can. We have the power and you Catholics are just the backward religious minority."

Scholar: Liberals, Feminists Have Made Men Afraid to Embrace Their Manhood

A healthy society needs fathers. Men, therefore, need to embrace their manhood and recognize the important role they play as husbands and fathers in a family, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse advised Friday in a panel on the problem of fatherlessness at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Md.

The important role men play in a family is due to their natural instincts to protect the weak and vulnerable, Morse explained, but liberals and feminists have made men afraid to embrace their unique role.
"This is what the left despises about the family – they cannot control it and government is not necessary for it," Morse said.
"I want the men listening ... to embrace your manhood," Morse said. "Do not be ashamed. ... There's nothing wrong with being a man. That's what we need from you. We need those who will take responsibility for protecting the weak and will sustain the family. There's nothing to be ashamed of."
