South Carolina ruling a ‘dangerous precedent’

OneNewsNow — A conservative, pro-family group is blasting a court decision in South Carolina last week forcing the state’s Republican governor to accept federal bailout funds. …

Oran Smith, president of South Carolina-based Palmetto Family Council, says Thursday’s ruling violates the notion of federalism.

“And it’s particularly a problem in this case because it’s related to money,” he notes. “So the question is: Can the federal government just simply buy off a state? Or use the power of the purse to manipulate a state into doing what the federal government thinks it should?

“…[T]hat’s a very dangerous precedent,” adds Smith, “and I think it’s really the reason why we fought a certain war in 1776 or so to fight against this type of thing.” …

BLOG UPDATE

Palmetto Public Square: “Truth at All Costs”

This week’s Palmetto Public Square features a stirring speech by recent high school graduate Tiffany Deierlein.

As PFC President Oran Smith writes, “Last Saturday, I had the joy of speaking to the graduation of the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools (SCAIHS).

Tiffany Deierlein’s valedictory speech was so impressive, I asked her for permission to post it on our blog.

I know you’ll be as impressed as I was.”

Here’s an excerpt:

In John 18:37 Jesus declares, “I came that I might testify to the truth.” Likewise, He sends forth his children to proclaim the truth to the ends of the earth. We stand here today solely because of His grace, and we go forth from here in the fear of the Lord to rekindle the Reformation, to proclaim the via, veritas, vita–the way, the truth, and the life. We go forth in the shadow of the Almighty, to reform the culture and reclaim civilization. And we do not go alone.
