Christian rightThe Alliance Defending Freedom wants to take America back to the 3rd century. Literally. On the website for its legal fellowship program, the organization explains that it “seeks to recover the robust Christendomic theology of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th centuries.”

“This is catholic, universal orthodoxy and it is desperately crucial for cultural renewal,” the explanation goes on. “Christians must strive to build glorious cultural cathedrals, rather than shanty tin sheds.”

While the Arizona-based organization has not made much progress in its mission of restoring the religious sentiments of the Byzantine Era, it has built a massive “legal ministry,” relying on 21st century attorneys and an eight-figure annual budget to reshape American law and society.

voter id law A federal judge struck down Wisconsin's voter identification law Tuesday, saying the measure places an unnecessary burden on poor and minority voters, court documents showed.

The ruling comes amid Supreme Court decisions that question the relevance of civil rights laws put in place during the 1960s to combat discriminatory state statutes on voting.
