The supply and demand for prostitution

- The Washington Times

The D.C. Council is considering legislation that would decriminalize prostitution. The Reducing Criminalization to Promote Public Safety and Health Amendment Act would permit women, men and teens to buy, sell and ply commercial sex without fear of prosecution -- regardless of whether they are on the giving or receiving end of the transaction.

"I don't think our politicians know how high the stakes are here, and after so many years have gone by with our situation still as devastated as it is, I don't know if they care," Monroe says. "I'm not sure how much worse it can get, and at the same time I'm afraid to see how much worse it can get." (AP Photo/David Goldman)

At last, a president who protects our fundamental religious freedoms

The men who gathered to create our country and the Constitution were a varied group. Many of them were Christians, but some did not believe in the God of the Old and New Testaments. Yet, they proposed to establish a sovereign nation where people of all faiths and no faith would be welcome; where the freedom of conscience and religion would not be violated by the government. In a miracle of the ages, they succeeded in creating the first nation where both those who believe in God and those who don't are safe from government coercion.
