Louisiana’s residents have begun receiving stimulus checks from the federal government this week, and President Trump has asserted that he is assembling a task force in place to re-open the U.S. economy. The financial markets are responding well to this news, Americans remain cautiously optimistic that we are past the worst of the COVID-19 fallout.

Over at Unite 714, we’ve seen hundreds of thousands of people come together to pray for recovery and revival. We’re following the mandate of 2 Chronicles 7:14, humbling ourselves, seeking God’s face, and asking for him to heal our land. Will you join us? 

 

Governor John Bel Edwards told a reporter this morning that he is unsure of when Louisiana’s economy could be reopened. His statement, perhaps in response to Rep. Mark Wright, R-Covington, who praised Edwards for his handling of the virus, but calling on him to enunciate his economy recovery strategy.

Louisiana’s families need to get back to work before our state’s emergency resources are depleted. LFF echos Rep. Wright: the Governor acted decisively over Louisiana’s health threat, but now its time to announce formation of a plan to re-open Louisiana.

The U.S. Department of Education has opened an investigation into more than $375 million in deliberately unreported financial contributions from China that benefitted Harvard and Yale. Current government regulations require that universities disclose all foreign gifts of more than $250,000.

Why would Harvard and Yale be hiding these contributions?

 

Jack Phillips, the Colorado baker whose landmark religious liberty case at the U.S. Supreme Court rebuffed the State of Colorado’s attempts to force him to make a cake for a homosexual wedding ceremony, has been sued again

This time, the plaintiff is a transgender activist who wanted Phillips to bake a birthday cake that also celebrated a gender transition surgery. Alliance Defending Freedom, who defended Phillips in the last case, has agreed to represent him again.
