    OUR MISSION

    At Alaska Watchman we definitely have certain beliefs and concerns, which guide what we find newsworthy and how we go about reporting. In particular, we believe that America’s historic Judeo-Christian heritage is a treasure to be preserved and handed down to future generations. We hold that the natural law and long-standing universal forms of morality should guide our private and public lives.

    From this flows our belief that people have a right to practice their faith. This means freedom to worship but also freedom to put faith into action when raising and educating children, serving the poor, running businesses and engaging the pressing issues of our time. Faith is not merely a private affair. To restrict it as such violates a fundamental right to live in accord with our deepest convictions.
