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.

This week, I have good news: Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall will enforce the law, even if local prosecutors don’t.
On the last day of its term, the Supreme Court struck a major blow against the EPA (and the administrative state generally) in its 6-3 decision in West Virginia v. EPA.
In an act of shame, Jefferson County District Attorney Danny Carr signed a letter written by a George Soros-backed organization and joined by over 80 other district attorneys stating that they would not enforce their states’ laws protecting unborn children from abortion.
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.
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.
