On this special edition of "Washington Watch with Tony Perkins," we take a look at the plight of persecuted Christians worldwide. Chris Mitchell, CBN News' Middle East Bureau Chief, describes his recent trip to Northern Iraq where he visited with Christians who are returning to rebuild their community. David Curry, President of Open Doors USA, joins Tony to discuss his recent travels overseas and discusses the theology of persecution. Pastor Steven Khoury of Holy Land Missions tells us about the losses his family has endured for following Jesus in Palestinian occupied territory. Finally, Tony talks with former congressman Frank Wolf about the immediate actions that the Trump administration and new congress need to take to demonstrate that international religious freedom is a priority for the United States.

Here's a way you can help stop Planned Parenthood...

Change is in the air in Washington. But if Congress doesn’t take advantage of the mandate of the 2016 election, America risks enduring the status quo of the Obama years into 2017. Opportunity for change is now before us, and we need your help.

Please call your senators and urge them to vote FOR the budget when they return in January 3rd.

Q&A; on the Abortion Facility Regulations Decision

What does Texas’ H.B. 2 law say?

These regulations protected women from lax abortion industry safety standards by requiring that abortion centers meet necessary health and safety standards, including the presence of trained staff, corridors that could accommodate stretchers in ...

Families, Churches, and Crime Prevention

by Mr. J. Kenneth Blackwell

Ken Blackwell is Senior Fellow for Human Rights and Constitutional Governance at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Heritage Foundation's 2016 Index of Culture and Opportunity. Politicians often argue that the solution to reducing crime is more government programs or building bigger jails. Yet government cannot adequately address the underlying problems of criminal behavior or fill the holes in people’s lives. What families need more than government programs are married fathers and mothers together in the home ... (more)

Supreme Court Nominations: Filling Justice Scalia's Seat and Beyond

by Mr. Christopher M. Gacek, J.D., Ph.D. and Mr. Travis Weber

I. General Principles Since the founding of this Republic 240 years ago, it has been understood that first and foremost governments are put in place to secure the inalienable rights bestowed upon us by God, our Creator. These rights cannot be taken away from any American by any government. Our Constitution was adopted to preserve these rights and to institute a just government that will also provide those benefits enumerated in the Preamble to the Constitution. The primacy of law-making by our elected representatives and the adherence to ... (more)
