URGENT ACTION ALERT - To Defend Religious liberty and to Stop HR 8404 that would do away with the federal Defense of Marriage Act and threaten religious liberty for churches, individuals, and religious organizations
Sun, Nov 27th, 2022 8:23:43 am

URGENT ACTION ALERT - To Defend Religious liberty and to Stop HR 8404 that would do away with the federal Defense of Marriage Act and threaten religious liberty for churches, individuals, and religious organizations. Call Senator Portman and leave a message - 202-224-3353  - 614-469-6774

Dear Fellow Ohioan for Religious Liberty,

On Monday, the Senate will vote again on whether to advance the redefinition of marriage, and this may be our last chance to add real religious liberty protections to the bill. People of faith have been targeted by the Left for their belief that marriage is between a man and a woman; if the so-called Respect for Marriage Act bill becomes law without substantial protections, courts are likely to interpret the law as a national policy on natural marriage, equating the belief that marriage is between one man and one woman with racism. Furthermore, the bill will supercharge legal attacks by granting a private right of action to almost anyone. Currently, there are no equivalent protections in the bill.

Will you take a moment right now and ask Senator Portman to include the substantial religious liberty protections amendment being offered by Senator Mike Lee?

 A cloture vote, requiring 60 votes, is set for Monday evening. Senator Portman and 11 other Republican senators voted to advance this bill last week; if he and just two others withhold their vote for cloture Monday, they can force Democrats to add strong religious liberty protections to the bill. But he needs to hear from you.

 - This call to action was provided by the Family Research Council. The Ohio Christian Alliance is working with the FRC to defeat HR 8404 which will dismantle the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act and codify same-sex marriage into law, presenting serious threats to religious liberty for individuals, churches, and religious organizations. Tune in Tuesday to News in Focus 1220 AM Salem/Cleveland as we discuss the issue with FRC Midwest Representative Tim Throckmorton.

Here is what happened earlier this month on this bill in the U.S. Senate

The following is from Quena Gonzalez of the Family Research Council

From: Quena Gonzalez

To: Chris Long

Subject: Senator Portman voted to advance same-sex marriage. Tell him to vote FOR this strong religious liberty amendment!

Dear Mr. Long,

On Wednesday, November 16, Senator Portman and 11 other Senate Republicans voted to advance the marriage redefinition bill past a crucial procedural vote, but despite the bill’s clearing that vote, all is not lost. An amendment is being offered to protect adoption and foster-care providers, thousands of religious organizations, and millions of everyday Americans from federal harassment, legal liability, and loss of tax-exempt status for their belief that marriage is between one man and one woman.

Click HERE to tell Senator Portman to support a CRITICAL religious liberty amendment to the bill!

 As we’ve previously warned, the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act will go much further than Obergefell by supercharging the ongoing lawsuits against people of faith who still believe in natural marriage.

 Fortunately, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) is introducing an amendment that would help curb the dangers of the bill in its current form. Tell Senator Portman that you want him to insist that Senator Lee’s amendment is adopted!

Your calls are needed today to defend religious liberty. Click on the links and make the calls. The vote is scheduled for Monday evening.

-OCA President Chris Long

 

Elections Returns 2022 - The Good the Bad and the Suspicious
Tue, Nov 15th, 2022 9:27:50 pm

Election Returns 2022-The Good the Bad and the Suspicious

Cleta Mitchell who has been working on election reform over the past few years discusses the continued election mess in the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, and California. Early voting and mail-in ballots allow for voter fraud. In Pennsylvania, they did away with their process of validating their ballots with the voter logs. Ballot harvesting and voter registration with same-day voting in Democratic states are creating a situation in which we do not have fair and just elections. In this broadcast, we share the suspicious voting irregularities in the state of Arizona. At the time of this broadcast, one week after the November 8th Election, Congressional races have still not been called in the states of Colorado, California, and Oregon, as they wait for late mail-in ballots. This is an absolute travesty that the election process is dragging out this long. It is intentional and allows for the meddling of ballots and vote totals. In a Rasmussen poll conducted on November 8th and 9th, 57 percent of those surveyed believed that cheating affects election outcomes. The political left has been creating an atmosphere of confusion and doubt with our election process in recent years. We as Americans must stand up and fight to have fair and accurate elections. Also joining me is Mike Goldstein, a resident of Arizona who is working with local Republicans on election reform issues in the state of Arizona where he now resides. Mike gives us an eyewitness report from Arizona. Keep praying for America. Click here to hear the interview

Ohio Christian Alliance Statement on the overturning of Roe v Wade with the SCOTUS Dobbs Decision.
Sat, Jun 25th, 2022 12:05:47 pm

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                               June 24th, 2022

Ohio Christian Alliance Statement on the overturning of Roe v Wade with the SCOTUS Dobbs Decision.

Today, the Ohio Christian Alliance celebrates the SCOTUS decision on Dobbs that has effectively struck down the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973. Today, forty-nine years of abortion on demand in all fifty states has effectively come to an end. With the Dobbs decision, the Court has sent abortion policy back to the states. Many states are now poised to enact legislation that will end abortion and save the lives of the unborn.

 

OCA President Chris Long made the following statement, “We celebrate today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. The pro-life movement, after a long struggle, has finally prevailed with a favorable decision that defends life in the womb. The Court, in its 6-3 decision, led by Justice Samuel Alito who wrote the majority opinion, has finally heard the cries and prayers of many who have long-awaited this day. The justices held their ground and were not swayed by threats and intimidation from the opposition by the unlawful activity of those who sought to intimidate them in their neighborhoods and at their residences. Mob rule will not prevail when good men and women stand up and make conscious decisions for justice.

 

“Today is a day to celebrate the pro-life cause. But, as Winston Churchill said after the Battle of Britain, ‘This is not the end. This is not even the beginning of the end. But this may be the end of the beginning.’ The pro-life movement now has much work to do here in Ohio and in states across the country. Crisis pregnancy centers will be in greater demand. The church and Christian ministries must step up to the plate to meet the new challenge and welcome the life that just days ago would have been sentenced to death through the act of abortion.”

A statement from the Ohio Christian Alliance concerning the Texas elections case before the U.S. Supreme Court

A statement from the Ohio Christian Alliance concerning the Texas elections case before the U.S. Supreme Court

The Ohio Christian Alliance fully supports the Texas elections case currently before the U. S. Supreme Court. Ohioans turned out in historic numbers to vote in this year's Presidential Election. President Trump carried the state by eight percentage points. Ohio, for the last 60 years, has been a bellwether state; if you win Ohio, you win the Presidency. Ohioans watched closely as the returns came in on November 3rd and into the early morning hours of November 4th, only to witness an unprecedented shift in vote tallies in key battleground states, switching from President Trump to Mr. Biden. As the days and weeks went by with reports of widespread voter fraud and election fraud by hundreds of eyewitnesses, it became apparent that something went terribly wrong with this year's Presidential Election.

The voters of Ohio feel violated and disenfranchised by having their votes for President negated by the fraud that took place in other states. Watching state after state conduct hearings with sworn statements from eyewitnesses who attest, not just to voter fraud, but to election fraud in their states, Ohioans became concerned about the validity of the election. Many wondered what this would mean for future elections. If massive fraud was being allowed in other states such as Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, and Wisconsin by not policing voter integrity, what would it mean for all future national elections? Many expressed that they had lost confidence in elections and wondered if they would bother voting in the future. This election has undoubtedly cast a dark shadow in the minds of many over voter confidence.

We are also saddened to see the courts in other states not take this matter of voter integrity seriously. Because many voters feel disenfranchised, we urge the U.S Supreme Court to review this complaint with Constitutional integrity and prudence, as it will undoubtedly affect millions who believe in one person one vote! We are heartened by the 18 other State Attorney Generals who have joined this lawsuit. We will be praying for the Court’s decision!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - PROTEST OF FINDING INVALIDATING REFERENDUM PETITION
Mon, Nov 18th, 2019 3:26:58 pm

 PROTEST OF FINDING INVALIDATING

SIGNATURE OR SIGNATURES ON REFERENDUM PETITION

 

Medina, OH - Concerned Citizens of Medina City today submitted a protest appeal to the Medina County Board of Elections and the Ohio Secretary of State regarding the Medina City Ordinance 112-19 that was passed by Medina City Council on July 8, 2019. This ordinance is an LGBTQ comprehensive special rights ordinance. Citizens in the community of Medina had expressed concerns about the comprehensive nature of the ordinance before Medina City Council passed it.

 

Citizen volunteers with assistance of the Ohio Christian Alliance circulated a referendum petition to place the measure on the ballot.  1,173 signatures were gathered in just fourteen days. On July 31st, the citizens committee submitted the referendum petition in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code to City Finance Director Keith Durham. Mr. Durham held the petitions for ten days before submitting them to the Medina County Board of Elections for review. On August 12th the Board of Elections reported that they had invalidated 234 of the signatures.  983 signatures were needed to place the measure on the ballot. The Board determined that the referendum petition committee had 939 good signatures, 44 signatures short of what was needed.

 

The Ohio Christian Alliance made a public records request from the Medina County BOE and began a review with its attorneys of the Board’s findings. The Medina County Board of Elections officials had invalidated 59 signatures for what they called “non-matching signature.”  In other words, these are registered voters in the City of Medina about whom the Board of Elections officials made a judgement call by stating that their signatures did not match what the Board had on file. The Concerned Citizens of Medina City Committee and its volunteers informed the petition signers whose signatures were rejected that the Board had invalidated their signatures for what they termed “non-matching”. These citizens were more than eager to sign sworn affidavits attesting to their identity, and that they had indeed signed the referendum petition and wanted it on the ballot.

 

This material proof has been submitted as testament that these signatures were valid and that these petition signers wrongfully had their signatures invalidated by the Board’s review. We are confident that upon further review, the referendum effort will be certified for the November 2020 ballot.  It is important that the people’s right of referendum be upheld.  

A Statement from the Ohio Christian Alliance. A Public Records Request Has Been Made to the Medina County Board of Elections Regarding the Referendum Petition on the LGBTQ Special Rights Ordinance 112-19. 
Tue, Aug 20th, 2019 10:35:52 pm

The Medina County Board of Elections on Monday reported to Medina City Finance Director Keith Dirham that the referendum petition effort on Ordinance 112-19, the LGBTQ Special Rights Ordinance, had fallen short of the signatures needed. However, OCA and its attorneys see discrepancies in the initial report.  The Board invalidated 260 of the 1,173 signatures submitted. OCA President Chris Long made the following statement, “Today we officially made public records request for the complete report of the signature review by the Medina County Board of Elections.  There are a number of questions concerning the initial report.   We believe that upon further review enough signatures will be validated to place the measure on the ballot in November 2020. The Concerned Citizens of Medina City, along with the Ohio Christian Alliance and their attorneys will review and challenge the Board’s findings on the signatures they invalidated. We are confident that we will have enough signatures to be on the fall ballot of 2020. The residents of the City of Medina who are concerned about this new ordinance have a right to have their voices heard at the ballot box. We will fight for their right of representative government and for them to have their opportunity to vote. We are only 44 signatures away from certification for the referendum to be on the ballot. We are confident that the court will validate enough signatures for the referendum to be on the ballot and let the people decide.”
