Robert Muise has spent the past 12 years in state and federal courts defending religious liberty, freedom of speech, the traditional family and the sanctity of life. In January of this year, he co-founded the American Freedom Law Center and was one of the first to file a lawsuit challenging the Health and Human Services mandate, on behalf of Priests for Life.

He spoke with Register correspondent Bob Horning.

As a Marine officer commissioned in 1987, I took an oath “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” My focus then was on foreign enemies. I served as an infantry officer and deployed all...READ MORE

Philadelphia is the place where both the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were written. For more than two centuries, these documents have inspired people around the globe. So as we begin our reflection on today’s readings, I have the privilege of greeting everyone here today — and every person watching or listening from a distance — in the name of the Church of my home, the Church of Philadelphia, the cradle of our country’s liberty and the city of our nation’s founding. May God bless and guide all of us as we settle our hearts on the word of God.

Fortnight for Freedom's Fitting Conclusion on Independence Day (6049)

Cardinal Wuerl and Archbishop Chaput end the two weeks of prayer and reflection with inspiring words.

WASHINGTON — The Fortnight for Freedom began with burning questions about whether an urgent threat to religious freedom would be removed by an immanent Supreme Court ruling.

But the two-week period of prayer, fasting, public action and study closed with that threat still present: The high court upheld the constitutionality of disputed elements of the Affordable Care Act, which authorized the “contraception mandate" opposed by the U.S. bishops as “unacceptable.”

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the...READ MORE
