UPDATE: School Bathroom Court Case

One of our biggest victories this last legislative session was championing legislation that protects the privacy and safety of girls in school bathrooms, showers, and changing areas. Senate Bill 1100, which was drafted by Idaho Family Policy Center and sponsored by Rep. Ted Hill (R-Eagle) and Sen. Ben Adams (R-Nampa), went into full force and effect on […]

IFPC Files Brief Supporting Tenn. Law Banning Sex Changes for Minors

Last week, Idaho Family Policy Center – along with thirty other state-based family policy councils – filed a brief in support of a recently enacted Tennessee law that protects children from sex change drugs and procedures. The Tennessee law was allowed to take effect earlier this month after the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily […]

DEVOTION: The Death of Old Hickory

  “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7, ESV).   Andrew Jackson’s time was running short. The seventh president of the United States—nicknamed “Old Hickory” for his legendary stubbornness and toughness—had served his country honorably both in war and in statecraft. Now nearing […]

DEVOTION: A Courtroom Sermon

  “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:26, ESV).   In Romans 13, the Apostle Paul explains that civil magistrates are ministers of God, called to dispense justice according to God’s law by “punishing those who do wrong.” This […]

DEVOTION: Paying Homage to the King

“Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. Kiss his son, or he will be angry… blessed are all those who take refuge in him” (Psalm 2:10-12, NKJV).   For thirty minutes in the early morning, ringing church bells heralded […]

ALERT: Ask Flying M to Stop Dispensing Abortifacient Drugs

  Friends, I was dismayed to see that Flying M Coffee — a staple for caffeine lovers in the Treasure Valley — dispenses free abortifacients in “reproductive health distro boxes” at its Boise and Nampa locations. The abortifacient display boxes are stocked by Idaho Abortion Rights, a “mutual aid collective” that assists women in acquiring […]

DEVOTION: Loving God by Keeping His Commandments

  “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15, ESV).   One of the first Bible passages my wife and I taught our daughter, Arabella, is found in Deuteronomy 6:4-5: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart […]

VETOED: Disappointing Last Day of Legislative Session

Our bid to override Gov. Brad Little’s veto of the Children’s School and Library Protection Act has come to an end. The governor vetoed the bill yesterday afternoon, forcing a showdown when the legislature reconvened today to wrap up the legislative session. Between last night and this morning, more than 2,000 of you sent emails […]

ALERT: Override Veto on Children’s School and Library Protection Act

  Friends, I’ll start with the bad news: Gov. Little has vetoed the Children’s School and Library Protection Act (H314a), rejecting the will of the people and their elected representatives. The bill – which was drafted by Idaho Family Policy Center and is sponsored by Rep. Jaron Crane (R-Nampa) and Sen. Cindy Carlson (R-Riggins) – […]


Friends, As I’m sure you know, Gov. Brad Little signed the “Vulnerable Child Protection Act” (House Bill 71a) earlier this evening, protecting gender-confused children from harmful puberty blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries. We can’t overstate the importance of this victory—and we definitely owe it in part to your biblical citizenship and your […]
