Around the world, the experience of Christian athletes is a warning that we’re losing our respect for common ground.
By now, you must have heard about the scathing Wall Street Journal editorial on the Providence school system. They didn’t hold back, and it is right in line with what our Center has been saying for years. It is a total embarrassment for teachers who truly care about educating kids.

VICTORY! For years, our Center has worked, both publicly and behind the scenes, to secure an important and symbolic freedom for Rhode Island families. During the last moments of the 2019 General Assembly session, lawmakers voted to exempt natural hair braiders from the occupational licensing requirement for hairdressers and cosmeticians within the state.
Odd how the notion that freedom requires a right to other people’s work product also requires that everybody consents to the socialist’s view of meaning.
Rhode Island’s problems are pretty obvious, but it’s apparently more difficult than might be expected to tell who is actually trying to fix them.
Imagine how different the state budget would look to Rhode Islanders if it shaved just one-fifth of the increase in order to keep the promise of reducing the sales tax rate.

During Tiverton’s Second Amendment Sanctuary Town discussion, a notion of tidy government process contrasted with the fiery rejection that forged the Constitution.
Those who’ve given their lives to protect the United States of America did so for an experiment in political disagreement that doesn’t come to blows.
The trend of increasing attempts to delegitimize the activities of our political opposition cannot move our communities or our country in a positive direction.
Protecting the Second Amendment on a macro scale can start in a small New England town hall.
