The Rundown: Scaramucci!

August 2nd, 2017

The right decision was made.

I’m having the best cup of coffee right now in Portsmouth, Ohio at Coffee @ the Lofts.

I made the trip bright and early to Portsmouth to catch the beginning of the annual Roy Rogers Festival.

For the last few years, the festival has kicked off with the “Roy Rogers’ Character Awards” – led by CCV Board Member Tim Throckmorton, and former CCV President and current dean of Ohio Christian University Monty Lobb.

The Rundown: This can’t wait

July 27th, 2017

We’ve waited long enough. It’s time for courage not more compromise.

CCV Statement on President Trump’s Military Policy

July 26th, 2017

“Our Commander in Chief made the right decision today to refocus our military on protecting the American people, not on advancing a political agenda. Since President Obama first rolled out his transgender policy, the Pentagon has been struggling to find a way to implement it in a way that doesn’t compromise military safety. Thanks to the Trump administration, our military can get back to doing what they do best: keeping our nation safe.”

The Rundown: Shut it down

July 20th, 2017

The abortion industry wants to shut down all discussion

Sorry the Rundown is a day late – I spent the day in Toledo yesterday meeting with CCV friends and hearing more about all the good the Body of Christ is doing up there. Protestants and Catholics doing great work for the community, like at the Toledo Diocese and Cherry Street Ministries.

I also caught up with friends at the Toledo Pregnancy Center. Toledo has made great pro-life progress lately (And can’t talk about the pro-life progress without also mentioning Ed Sitter at Toledo Right to Life.)

Toledo now has one abortion clinic, and it is surrounded by pro-life advocates working to show women that abortion isn’t their only option.

TOLEDO – As the Toledo City Council considers enacting an unconstitutional restriction on free speech, an Ohio advocacy organization is urging them to step back from the legal ledge.

Citizens for Community Values sent a letter to the Council today informing them that the proposed “buffer zone” ordinance around Toledo’s abortion clinic is a direct violation of the U.S. and Ohio Constitutions.
