New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, seen here campaigning for GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, vows to veto any same-sex 'marriage' bill that reaches his desk this year.

TRENTON, N.J. — A bill allowing same-sex “marriage” in New Jersey is a “top priority” for New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney and his fellow Democrats in both the Senate and Assembly.

Gov. Chris Christie has promised to veto any same-sex “marriage” bill. The bill is unlikely to gain enough votes to override that veto, but the fight is sure to be intense.

New Jersey has allowed same-sex civil unions, with all the benefits of marriage, since 2006 and domestic partnerships since 2003.

Sweeney, a Catholic living in the Diocese of Camden, abstained from a similar vote in 2010. His lack of support was considered a key element in that bill’s defeat. In the intervening time, Sweeney...READ MORE

Training Leaders in Christian Virtue (2392)

A look at Franciscan University's new leadership institute. Jan. 15 issue feature.

Franciscan University

Students who participate in Franciscan University’s new Center for Leadership get to know world leaders such as Alexandre Havard, founder of the Havard Virtuous Leadership Institute, who took part in the program’s distinguished speakers series.

– Franciscan University

Every day in Congress, Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, R-Neb., sees a complex array of problems that affect civic institutions, families and the culture. It’s for that reason that he believes it is imperative that future leaders be well prepared. And it’s why the alumnus of Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, gave a ringing endorsement to his alma mater’s Center for Leadership.

Founded last summer, the center “roots young men and women in virtue, forms them as leaders, and grounds them in sound philosophical thought,” Fortenberry said. “I know this university provides students with outstanding intellectual and spiritual formation. Its new Center for Leadership will further equip students to...READ MORE

COMMON CAUSE. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird participate during a joint press availability last August at the State Department in Washington, D.C. Both of their governments now have official efforts to monitor religious freedom issues around the world.

OTTAWA — Muslim extremists firebomb Christian churches in northern Nigeria. Chinese communists imprison the faithful. Christians in Burma were attacked during the Christmas season.

In response to these and other threats to religious liberty around the world, Canada’s Conservative government is planning to open an Office of Religious Freedom this spring.

The office will be modeled after the U.S. Office of International Religious Freedom, and opponents are already recycling criticisms first used in 1998 when the U.S. created it as part of the State Department. To the evident confusion of many Canadians, the same legislation set up the quite separate U.S. Commission on Religious Freedom. The...READ MORE

Alliance Defense Fund's Chief Convert (4771)

Alan Sears recalls when 'the Body of Christ was AWOL' on religious liberty and the ADF was born.

01/18/2012 Comment
Alliance Defense Fund

Alan Sears

– Alliance Defense Fund

Alan Sears is one Catholic convert who remains very attached to his Protestant heritage. Raised as a Baptist, Sears says the writings of Blessed John Paul II were a powerful influence leading to his conversion in the summer of 1988, shortly before his marriage to his wife, Paula, a cradle Catholic.

But he’s still intimately connected to his faith community of origin: Sears serves as president of the Alliance Defense Fund, the legal organization 35 evangelical and Protestant ministry leaders formed in 1994 to uphold America’s religious freedom.

Sears spoke with Register correspondent Tom McFeely about his organization’s ecumenical character and some of its accomplishments.
