breaking news Ohio Senate Reintroduces Ohio Heartbeat Bill......
Tue, Feb 12th, 2019 8:11:30 pm

Today the Ohio Senate reintroduced Ohio's Heartbeat Bill S.B. 23 with 19 Senate cosponsors. State Senator Kristina Roegner is the Senate sponsor.

In December the Ohio Senate came one vote short of a veto override to pass the Heartbeat Bill. That won't be necessary as Gov. Mike DeWine has stated he will sign The Heartbeat Bill into law when it comes to his desk. More to come.....

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                       January 22, 2019

 

 

A call for the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department to investigate the dangerous threats that were made against the Covington Catholic Christian School students.

 

 

Today, the Ohio Christian Alliance, with a coalition of religious, family, and legal advocacy organizations, called for the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department to investigate the dangerous threats that were made against the Covington Catholic Christian School students. This week, the school was closed by officials and local law enforcement due to security concerns.

 

The statements and direct threats that were made against this Christian school and its students are alarming and extremely dangerous. The FBI, in the recent past, has brought charges against and prosecuted individuals who have hurled similar threats against Congressional members. One such incident occurred in 2010 when a threat was reported to have been made against then-Ohio Congressman John Boccieri. The case was brought to federal court, and the individual in question was found guilty and sentenced to prison.

 

The hysteria that followed the students from the encounter with protestors at the Lincoln Memorial at the conclusion of the March for Life put them at the center of a generated hate campaign, fueled by false media reports and social media. It has been documented that known individuals have called for violence against the students and their Christian school. This, in our opinion, is simply an outrage, and a watershed moment in which reason, sensibility, and the law must come into play.

 

The Justice Department stands for justice for all, and everyone equal under the law. Does the well-being and safety of a Congressman outweigh the safety and security of school children? The individuals who made these vicious and dangerous threats against the Covington Catholic School children must be held accountable for their threats against these minors.  We will make an official appeal to the DOJ and the FBI in writing in the coming days.

Heartbeat bill fails by ONE VOTE...
Sat, Dec 29th, 2018 1:47:27 pm

It is with great disappointment that we bring you the sad news that Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill H.B 258 has failed in a veto override attempt today in the Ohio Senate. 19 votes were cast to override Governor Kasich’s veto of the bill; 20 votes were needed. The measure lost by just one vote. The Ohio Christian Alliance is committed to working with those members of the Ohio General Assembly who will be sworn in to serve in the 133rd General Assembly that will be seated in January. Governor-elect Mike DeWine has pledged to sign the bill into law once he is Governor. We will continue to fight for protecting the life of the unborn, we are their voice! We value all human life as God has given.  - OCA President Chris Long

Ohio House Overrides Governor Kasich's Veto by 60 Votes Heartbeat Bill
Thu, Dec 27th, 2018 11:14:10 am

Ohio House Votes to Override Governor Kasich's Veto on Heartbeat Bill H.B. 258. It now heads to the Ohio Senate. Stay tuned....

OCA President Chris Long made the following statement, "Over the past twenty years, the Ohio Christian Alliance has supported pro-life legislation ranging from adoption support to restriction on abortion.  Forty-five years have passed since the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion on demand in all fifty states.  That decision struck down many existing state laws that restricted abortion or had banned it outright.  In the years following that terrible decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, the view of child-rearing and the nuclear family has suffered great loss. We commend the members of the Ohio General Assembly for voting to protect unborn children by supporting H.B. 258, Ohio's Heartbeat Bill."

Ohio's Heartbeat Bill H.B. 258 Passes Both Chambers, Heads to Governor Kasich

Ohio's Heartbeat Bill H.B. 258 Passes Both Chambers, Heads to Governor Kasich

The pro-life legislation that will ban abortion when a heartbeat is detected, sponsored by State Representatives Hood and Hagan along with fifty co-sponsors, last week passed the Ohio Senate and now heads to Governor Kasich's desk. Governor Kasich announced that he will veto the legislation. A joint letter, signed by pro-life family groups from around Ohio, including the Ohio Christian Alliance, has been written to the Governor, urging him not to veto, but to sign the legislation.  Call Governor Kasich today and urge him to sign Ohio's Heartbeat Bill H.B. 258 into law, protecting the most vulnerable member of our society, the unborn child in the womb. 614-466-3555

Pastor who voiced radio ads in support of Issue 1 now is a definite NO vote on Issue 1 - Report
Sun, Oct 28th, 2018 12:42:28 pm

Pastor who voiced radio ads in support of Issue 1 now is a definite NO vote on Issue 1 - Report

Pastor Greg Delaney, who earlier this month was heard on radio ads in favor of State Ballot Issue 1 that was aired on hundreds of radio stations, a combination of talk, Christian, and sports stations, has now come out OPPOSED to State Ballot ISSUE 1.

OCA President Chris Long stood with Pastor Greg Delaney, who works with drug and alcohol and addiction treatment programs, and has been featured by the Health and Human Services Department in Washington, in a press conference in Columbus on Monday, October 15,  to oppose State Ballot Issue 1. Pastor Greg said the following:

"I am here today to urge you to do as I have done and vote "no" on State Issue One. I previously provided public support in favor of Issue 1. I had confidence that Issue One would generate much-needed funding so Ohioans could get access to treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. I wholeheartedly agree with the premise that Ohioans in need of treatment should get that support...

Yet after my support for Issue 1 became public, many long-time colleagues, other members of my faith community, friends from the mental health and recovery community began calling, writing, asking me to take a closer look at the measure. 

Out of respect, I did. After much prayer and conversation, I felt compelled to publicly change my position and put voice to my opposition to State Issue One." 

Here is the Ohio Christian Alliance press release from Monday:

OCA Statement on the Defeat of State Issue 1
Tue, Nov 6th, 2018 9:57:45 pm

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                             

Ohio Christian Alliance Statement on the Defeat of State Ballot Issue 1

Today, Ohio voters read through the deception and soundly voted down State Ballot Issue 1.  The proposed constitutional amendment would have been bad for Ohioans, and especially harmful to the very people it is purported to help.   Promoted as an effort for prison reform, this deceptive ballot measure would have actually created conditions for more drug trafficking and opiate addiction, overdose and death in Ohio communities. Ohio has already seen its share of grief and loss in its battle against drug addiction. 

As the Ohio Christian Alliance has asserted from the beginning, we can now proceed with real common sense criminal sentencing reform for minor drug offenses. Working with a coalition of legislators, law enforcement, members of the judiciary, civic organizations, and the Chamber of Commerce, we can begin to put together a meaningful construct of common sense criminal sentencing reform. This would include a pathway for expungement of some non-violent fourth and fifth degree felonies, so that these Ohioans can again find their way back into society and attain gainful employment.

OCA President Chris Long stated, “The Ohio Christian Alliance looks forward to working with the coalition to begin this legislative initiative as we continue to win the battle against the insidious opiate addiction crisis in Ohio that is affecting so many of our neighbors.  Now the real work can begin.”

The Ohio Christian Alliance Today Stands with Other Ohio Faith Leaders to Oppose State Ballot Issue 1
Mon, Oct 15th, 2018 10:16:51 am

The Ohio Christian Alliance Today Stands with Other Ohio Faith Leaders to Oppose State Ballot Issue 1

 (Columbus, OH) OCA President Chris Long today stood with faith leaders to oppose State Ballot Issue 1. Faith leaders have now joined the ranks of the Ohio Bar Association, the Ohio Municipal League, the Ohio Judicial Conference, State Sherriffs’ Association, the Fraternal Order of Police, and the Ohio State Coroners Association in their opposition to State Ballot Issue One.

 Today’s press conference demonstrates that more Ohioans are turning against the proposed State Constitutional amendment.  Promoted as an effort for prison reform, in reality, the deceptive ballot measure would create conditions for more drug trafficking and opiate addiction, overdose, and death in Ohio communities. Ohio has already seen its share of grief and loss in its battle against drug addiction. 

 The amendment as proposed would strip law enforcement of the ability to curb drug use and trafficking in local communities.  Judges would no longer have the ability to provide options to defendants in the courtroom of either incarcerated addiction recovery programs or paroled drug addiction recovery programs. The amendment as proposed is cloaked as an effort for prison reform, but is in reality a proposed constitutional law that will make it nearly impossible for communities, law enforcement, and the judicial system to police and curb drug possession and drug trafficking on the streets of Ohio cities and communities.  

That is why the Ohio Christian Alliance is urging pastors, churches, and our fellow Ohioans to vote NO on State Ballot Issue 1.  Ohio is beginning to make some headway in our battle against drug overdoses and drug-related deaths. State Ballot Issue 1 would put a halt to the progress we have made and only make matters worse. That is why we are urging a NO Vote on Issue 1!

An open letter to Members of the Ohio Legislature:  
Wed, May 16th, 2018 2:44:53 pm

                                                                                                                           

An open letter to Members of the Ohio Legislature:

 

Due to the unexpected resignation of Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, the Ohio House majority must vote on a new Speaker to finish out the current session. Because the business of The People’s House must continue in the 132 General Assembly, we the undersigned suggest the following:

 

In light of the FBI investigation of former House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, we suggest that a Speaker be chosen from among the Majority who is not currently part of the leadership team, who is not running for re-election, and who could serve on an interim basis until the end of the current session. A new Speaker could then be elected after the fall Election. This would allow for the House to continue its session without a lengthy interruption.

 

It is important to put The People’s business first.

 

Sincerely,

Christopher R. Long                                              Linda Harvey

School Choice in Ohio now at risk with the sudden closure of the online school ECOT.
Sun, Jan 21st, 2018 10:20:44 am

School Choice in Ohio now at risk with the sudden closure of the online school ECOT.

A Statement from the Ohio Christian Alliance:

"On Thursday when the ODE (Ohio Department of Education) turned down the latest offer of restructured payments by ECOT school, they all but set in motion the immediate closure of the online institution ECOT schools. In doing so, they put in jeopardy the 12,000 students currently enrolled in the school. The magnitude of this decision is equivalent to a major Ohio school district being forced to close in the middle of the school year. State superintendent Paolo DeMaria and his administration had no contingency plan for these students. Parents and students are now scrambling to find other schools to enter, including the 2,287 seniors. This crisis could have been averted by the ODE and the Kasich administration. Their failure to provide a workable solution that would have at least finished the school year for ECOT and its students, is in our opinion gross incompetence and negligent. We would hope that this decision was not made for political purposes. That would be unconscionable as it is affecting so many school children who depend on this online Ohio school for their continuing education. We would hope that the legislature would act quickly to remedy this situation."

We agree with the following Statement by State Representative Andrew Brenner Chairman, Ohio House Education & Career Readiness Committee.
"This could have been avoided had the department of education set up a payment plan that would have allowed the students to finish the school year at ECOT. I warned the Department of this months ago, so their lack of consideration makes me concerned about the long-term ramifications of School choice in Ohio. Since ECOT is now closing the Ohio Department of Education has the responsibility to make sure all 12,000 kids are quickly and properly placed into alternative situations."

Addressing the Moral Crisis at the Ohio Statehouse – A Statement from the Ohio Christian Alliance
Tue, Nov 28th, 2017 10:29:32 am

Addressing the Moral Crisis at the Ohio Statehouse – A Statement from the Ohio
Christian Alliance November 28th 2017

A moral crisis has emerged at the Ohio Statehouse in recent weeks and requires the
attention of people of goodwill to address it. The serious nature of the moral failures of
some people who serve the public trust in their capacity as public servants has cast a dark
shadow over The People's House. That is why we the undersigned urge a call to action.
Here is what is known, according to recent media reports, and it is disturbing. Senator
Cliff Hite of the 1st Ohio Senate District recently resigned because of his inappropriate
contact with female staffers at the Ohio Statehouse. His seat is now vacant. It was then
reported by the House leadership that Rep. Mike Henne had been ordered to undergo
sensitivity training 2-1/2 years ago due to inappropriate remarks. The House has stated
they will release the documents in relation to the incident, but have not yet done so. Then
came the news of Ohio Senate Democratic chief of staff Michael Premo's sudden
resignation, about which no details were provided by Democratic Senate leadership.
Senate President Larry Obhof has requested to speak to the woman who filed the
complaint against Premo. - Click here for the full statement
