The State of California has two bills pending in its legislature that could further erode religious liberty and parental rights in the state. The first is an education bill that could be used to shame religious colleges for their beliefs and push students away; and the second is a so-called Bill of Rights for Children which could further undermine the rights of parents. And as we know, what happens in our costal states have a tendency to move across the nation.
|Brad Dacus, PJI President|
Joining us Tuesday to discuss these matters will be an old friend of the program, Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute. Long-time listeners will remember that Brad was one of our first guests when the fledgling FOT began as a 5-minute segment during the morning drive-time program.
Brad served as legislative assistant to U.S. Senator Phil Gramm, and went on to receive his law degree from the University of Texas, School of Law. For the next five years, he coordinated religious freedom and parental rights cases throughout the Western states. In 1997, he founded Pacific Justice Institute, where he serves as president and continues to defend religious liberties and parental rights. The Pacific Justice Institute has a network with hundreds of volunteer affiliate attorneys and handles more cases on the West Coast than any other organization of its kind.
In addition, Gina Noll – just back from the March for Life, will give us a report on the doings in Washington during the past week. So join Gina and Deacon Mike Manno for an interesting discussion on those things that affect people of faith.
