Mat Staver is the Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, an international nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics. Mat has argued cases in all levels of the justice system including the United States Supreme Court.

The Crosstalk sought Mat’s input on numerous topics including:

--Jim DeMint of South Carolina, a conservative voice in the Senate, is stepping away from that body to take the helm of the Heritage Foundation. Will his departure leave a critical void?

--Mat was in federal court in California last week challenging the implementation of a law regarding a process known as “change therapy”. This therapy is aimed at those with same-sex attractions who may want to default to their religious and moral values. Effective January 1, 2013, will counselors be forced to tell such clients that same-sex attractions are only good and normal?

--If this law is not overturned, what are the ramifications in other states and for pastoral counseling overall?

--The Southern Poverty Law Center is suing a Jewish organization for what they feel is consumer fraud, alleging that reparative therapy failed in a particular instance.

--The Defense of Marriage Act continues to be under attack. What cases, if any, will the Supreme Court look at regarding this topic? Mat feels that something regarding marriage and its definition will be decided by this court by June of 2013.

--Liberty Counsel filed the first private lawsuit in March of 2010 against Obamacare. They represented Liberty University and private individuals, challenging the individual and employer mandate. The Supreme Court was asked to review the case, and they in turn, ordered the federal court of appeals to re-hear the case. This means Mat will go back and argue in early 2013 with a decision to come shortly after on the employer mandate.
