Matt Clark: Why Christians need to evaluate secular philosophies like Marxism & CRT

I’m taking a break in this piece from my usual op-eds about law because we need to discuss something much deeper. As the great Montesquieu observed centuries ago: public policy is based on the people’s values, and the people’s values are based on their religion. Thus, religion ultimately drives what society looks like.

There’s a national movement to get liberal prosecutors not to prosecute crimes at all. In addition, the federal government has sued Alabama over the conditions of our prisons.

Matt Clark: Jefferson County DA won't enforce state abortion law

Matt Clark: Coach Kennedy and a bigger win for religious freedom

The Supreme Court has been on fire with fantastic decisions over the last week! In addition to my regular Friday column that addressed the gun-rights case, it was my honor to write another column on Friday discussing the Supreme Court’s greatest decision that came out that morning, in which the Court finally overruled Roe v. Wade! Now I’m usually not a fan of Mondays, but this Monday was an exception as the Supreme Court came out with another watershed decision in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District.

Matt Clark: The Supreme Court's finest moment

Today, in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the United States Supreme Court did that for which pro-life advocates had been praying and fighting for nearly fifty years: it overruled Roe v. Wade.

Matt Clark: A monumental victory for the Second Amendment and Originalism

On his 74th birthday, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas gave the Country a great gift: a Supreme Court opinion recognizing that the right to “bear arms shall not be infringed” means exactly what it says.
