  • Steve Deace warns his fellow anti-gay activists that "those so-called 'libertarians' aren’t your allies. Instead, they’ll be the ones holding the jail cell open for the Rainbow Jihad when they shove us inside."
  • FRC's Tony Perkins says that "at some point, we have to step back and ask the question, 'What is the purpose of school?' When did it stop being about the education of children and start becoming about political indoctrination?"
  • OneMillionMoms is now going after Tylenol for featuring same-sex couples in a recent ad: "Tylenol is just contributing to the collapse of the family. Tylenol is attempting to redefine marriage and recreate the total makeup of family by definition."
  • Glenn Beck and Van Jones actually agreed on something which, for Beck, is just further proof that Jones is dishonest and a "very, very dangerous guy."
  • Finally, Stephen Black says that "'Gay marriage' is simply a tragic, defiling covenant that is detestable in the sight of God. This union is a manifestation of narcissistic, emotional idolatry. This union is a promotion of human desires and lust and, therefore, idolatry."

  • Burt Prelutsky says that Obama shares "the instincts of Stalin, Hitler, Franco, Mao, Castro and Mussolini, but, fortunately, he lacks their power to kill dissidents or even have them exiled to Siberian gulags. The most he can do is sic the IRS on them, which is contemptible, but not fatal."
  • Finally, Monica Cole of OneMillionMoms brags of getting the television show "Black Jesus" cancelled, which must come as news to Cartoon Network, which renewed in back in December.

Anti-LGBT Groups: Girls Scouts Running A 'Dangerous' 'Social Engineering Experiment On Children'

The Religious Right has long been suspicious of the Girl Scouts, which activists have claimed turns girls into promiscuous, abortion-having lesbian socialists. Anti-Girl-Scout sentiment is on the rise yet again on the Right since the organization has announced that it will allow transgender girls to join the Scouts on “a case-by-case basis.” Concerned Women for America’s Penny Nance has been making the rounds on conservative media, calling the policy a “slap in the face to Christian parents,” and a few petitions are circulating urging people to make their displeasure known to the organization.

CitizenGo, the international petition platform that the National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown sits on the board of, is warning that the Girl Scouts are no longer merely “teaching girls that abortion and lesbianism are normal and admirable,” but are now running “a social engineering experiment on children”:

Although their cookies may be tasty, the Girl Scouts of America (GSA) has long promoted radical agendas, including teaching girls that abortion and lesbianism are normal and admirable. But now, they've gone even further to promote a sexual ideology to children.

In accordance with the new policy, the GSA website now reads, "If the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe."

In plain English, this means that families will be forced play gender make-believe and accept biological boys as girls. Boys in skirts and make-up, sharing tents with young vulnerable girls will now become an accepted part of the Girls Scouts program. This obviously puts children at risk and treats a recognized mental health problem as normative.

It's a tragedy that GSA leadership is willing to run a social engineering experiment on children, both the confused boys and the innocent girls wondering why a boy in a dress is in the bathroom with them.

If you believe that the GSA has gone too far with normalizing a radical sexual ideology, please sign our petition to the Girl Scouts of America, telling them that the Girl Scouts program is for girls, period!

Meanwhile, the American Family Association and its affiliate One Million Moms, seem to have picked up some of the same talking points, warning that the Girl Scouts’ “dangerous policy” will “put young innocent girls at risk” by forcing them to associate with “[b]oys in skirts, boys in make-up and boys in tents.”

Sign our petition to tell the Girl Scouts of America to stop this nonsense by rescinding this dangerous policy now!

The group says on its website, "If the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe."
This means girls in the organization will be forced to recognize and accept transgenderism as a normal lifestyle. Boys in skirts, boys in make-up and boys in tents will become a part of the program. This change will put young innocent girls at risk.

Adults are willing to experiment on our kids - both the boys who are confused and the girls who will wonder why a boy in a dress is in the bathroom with them.

The Girl Scouts of America has lost its moral compass and needs your encouragement to rescind this new policy. Since 2003, bad policies like this have resulted in GSA's enrollment dropping by over one million girls, almost 27% of its membership.

One Million Moms Goes After 'Creepy,' 'Wicked' 'How To Get Away With Murder'

One Million Moms, an arm of the American Family Association, is targeting its latest boycott push at the ABC show “How to Get Away With Murder.” In an email alert today, the group asks its members to call Kohl’s and ask the department chain to stop advertising on the “creepy,” “wicked show” that it says advertises “a whole slew of sins.”

ABC's creepy program "How To Get Away With Murder" did not end with the finale since it is now airing the season all over again. New episodes will begin on January 29 and in the meantime the network plans to air reruns - unless 1MM can intervene.

This show is about more than murder and violence. There is a whole slew of sins in this series that the network calls entertainment. This program has included assault and murder on several occasions, as well as graphic heteros-xual and homos-xual s-x scenes on a p-rn-graphic level, foul language, mockery of Jesus Christ and Christians, s-x with a minor (statutory r-pe), adultery and marital affairs. (A dash is used to ensure our emails get through to those who have signed up to receive our alerts. Otherwise, referencing specific words would cause our emails to be blocked by some Internet filters.)

This series pushes casual s-x as acceptable, even when with multiple partners or encounters in public places. This wicked show has many dark images including a rotting corpse, dead bodies and other gore. Even though the program airs on Thursday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT, it is not late enough for the violent, twisted plot and s-nsual scenes that are completely soft p-rn. Occasionally, like on this past Thanksgiving Day, it airs earlier at 9:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CT and then again at its regular time slot.

AFA's One Million Moms Joins Graham Cracker Boycott

The American Family Association subsidiary One Million Moms is joining calls from fellow anti-gay activists to boycott Honey Maid graham crackers over an ad that includes a same-sex couple.

The group is asking members to email Honey Maid to tell the company that they were “highly offended” by its “disrespect of millions of American families by supporting the homosexual agenda.”

In a statement, the group said Honey Maid — and its parent company Nabisco — “should be ashamed of themselves” for their “attempt to normalize sin” by “pushing the LGBT agenda.”

Nabisco should be ashamed of themselves for their latest Honey Maid and Teddy Graham cracker commercial where they attempt to normalize sin. Right away it shows two men with a baby, followed by other families, and ends with different families pictured including the one with two dads. This commercial not only promotes homosexuality, but then calls the scene in the advertisement wholesome. The ad states, "Everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family. This is wholesome."

One Million Moms stands up for Biblical truth which is very clear in Romans 1:26-27 about this particular type of sexual perversion.

Honey Maid is also using the hashtag #thisiswholesome. There is concern about the way this ad is pushing the LGBT agenda, but an even greater concern is the way that they are changing the meaning of the word "wholesome."

This is truly sad. If this is what Honey Maid thinks is wholesome, then my family will no longer purchase Honey Maid or Nabisco products.

Tony Perkins Rails Against Disney For Including Same-Sex Couple On 'Good Luck Charlie'

Family Research Council head Tony Perkins is joining other anti-gay activists in blasting the Disney Channel show “Good Luck Charlie” for daring to include a same-sex couple in one episode. “Good Luck Charlie” came under fire from One Million Moms, a wing of the American Family Association, which warned members that Disney will “corrupt the children’s network with LGBT content.”

Perkins declared victory over Disney, insisting without any evidence that “One Million Moms is flooding the channel with complaints.”

The FRC leader even made the baseless claim that “research says” same-sex parenting is harmful to kids.

He adds: “So it’s a little ironic that the show's called, ‘Good luck, Charlie.’ Without a dad, he'll need it.”

Perkins seems to have been so blinded by outrage in watching the show that he missed the fact that it is Charlie’s friend, and not Charlie herself, who has same-sex parents. And that Charlie is a girl.

When liberals took over the Disney Channel, they were hoping for a happy ending for their agenda. What they're getting is anything but. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you're looking for conservative values at Disney, it really is a small world after all. Producers made that clear when they introduced the channel's first same-sex couple to kids. After a year of planning, Disney finally made good on its promise, using the show "Good Luck Charlie" to give Taylor two moms. A spokesman says the show "was developed under the [advice] of child development experts..." But if Disney thinks that'll fly with parents, they've spent too much time in Fantasyland. OneMillionMoms is flooding the channel with complaints. Like us, they know what the research says: which is that kids who are deprived of a mom or dad grow up with significantly more emotional and academic problems. So it's a little ironic that the show's called, "Good luck, Charlie." Without a dad, he'll need it.

Peter LaBarbera Outraged That Disney Is 'Nonchalant About Exposing' Kids To 'Homosexual Parenting'

Looks like the American Family Association’s One Million Moms isn’t the only group upset about the Disney show “Good Luck Charlie” featuring a lesbian couple.

Naturally, Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality is also urging his followers to contact Disney to tell the company that that “homosexuality is aberrant and wrong behavior.”

“[Y]ou don’t want to model sinful relationships as normative to your kids–YOUR morality and faith, and your child’s innocence, are being undermined by Disney,” LaBarbera warns.

LaBarbera is especially disturbed by the fact that the parents in “Good Luck Charlie” do not seem disturbed or outraged that their daughter’s friend has two moms.

“Note how the main mother character, Amy (Leigh Allyn Baker) is nonchalant about exposing her daughter (Charlie) to homosexual parenting. (Amy goes on to call the lesbians a ‘great couple’),” LaBarbera comments. “Also note how she apparently never discussed the “lesbian moms” visit with her husband Bob (Eric Allen Kramer–of course, the dumber one). Get the message? A visit by homosexual parents is so inconsequential it doesn’t even merit a family discussion!”

Watch the shocking footage here:

Buster Wilson: Target Data Breach Is God's Wrath For Kmart Joe Boxer Ad

Former American Family Association talk show host Buster Wilson implied on Twitter today that the massive Target data breach was divine punishment for an ad…made by one of its competitors.

The “unseemly” commercial Wilson seems to be referencing is Kmart’s Joe Boxer ad, which upset the AFA so much that its OneMillionMoms affiliate organized a campaign against it.

We’re not exactly sure why Wilson thinks God would punish millions of Target customers over a Kmart ad, but such rants are what we’ve come to expect from the ex-AFA pundit.

One Million Moms: 'Macy's Cannot Be Trusted' After 'Kinky Boots' Performance

One Million Moms, a project of the American Family Association, is furious that Macy’s included a performance by the award-winning musical “Kinky Boots” in its Thanksgiving Day Parade. The anti-LGBT group is urging its members to tell Macy’s that the company’s “blatant agenda and in-your-face message was quite offensive” and “it is clear that Macy’s does not have my children’s best interest in mind.”

As a parent and a member of, I am greatly disappointed in your company's choice to include the "Raise You Up" drag performance during your Thanksgiving Day Parade with millions of children present and watching from home. It is inappropriate to highlight cross-dressing in a sexually charged performance during a traditional family activity. Your blatant agenda and in-your-face message was quite offensive, and Macy's cannot be trusted. Shame on Macy's for promoting this behavior. It is clear that Macy's does not have my children's best interest in mind. I can no longer trust Macy's Dept. Store. Your company needs to know that trust must be earned and once trust is lost it is difficult to get back.

“This is the straw that broke the camel’s back” the group said in a statement today, adding that it was especially offended by “Kinky Boots” lyrics such as “learn something new,” “you’re beautiful; it’s beautiful,” and “accept yourself and you’ll accept others too.”

"Raise You Up" was not suitable for families for many reasons. The inappropriate act starred Kinky Boots, referencing a musical written to celebrate the differences in each other and included: (all) the men and women in thigh-high boots [mostly red pleather while others were sparkly "hooker" boots], a man in boxer shorts and men in burlesque and Moulin rouge costumes prancing around expressing themselves, RuPaul (famous drag queen) along with several men dressed in drag, transgender and transvestites, singing and dancing as an expression of "diversity" and honoring whatever sexuality you want.

The performance was sexually charged and quite offensive. Here are some, but not all of the lyrics to the song they chose to sing, to give you a better idea:

Celebrate you to elevate you!

Ladies, Gentlemen, and those who have yet to make up their minds.

Instill the truth… learn something new.

Accept yourself and you'll accept others too.

Let love shine… let pride be your guide.

Change the world when you change your mind.

Just be who you wanna be.

You're beautiful; it's beautiful!

Shame on Macy's for promoting this. We cannot trust Macy's Dept. Store any longer. This is the straw that broke the camel's back. It is clear that Macy's does not have our children's best interest in mind. Macy's needs to know that trust must be earned and once trust is lost it is difficult to get back.

AFA Wants Toni Morrison's 'Pornography' Censored From Common Core

Last month, PFAW Foundation reported on a school board in Colorado that was considering removing Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye from its high school curriculum after parents objected to the book’s frank depiction of racism and sexual violence in the Depression-era Midwest.

In a board meeting last week, the school board decided to continue allowing English teachers to teach the book but to require that students submit a parental permission slip before reading it.

Now, the book’s appearance in the Common Core curriculum’s list of possible high school English texts has drawn the wrath of One Million Moms, an arm of the American Family Association, which is issuing an “ultimatum” for the book to be removed from Common Core's materials.

In an interview with the Christian Post this week, One Million Moms director Monica Cole said Morrison’s work is “no different than pornography” and found the need to condemn a pedophile character’s “use of the Lord's name to justify his actions,” claiming that this character is actually "an extremely sneaky way to involve violence in the school system."

"This book is no different than pornography," Monica Cole, director of One Million Moms, an online advocacy arm of the American Family Association, told The Christian Post in a Monday interview. She then linked pornography to human trafficking, rape, sexual violence, and even sexual slavery.

The author reportedly said "she wanted the reader to feel as though they are a 'co-conspirator' with the rapist," so "she took pains to make sure she never portrayed the actions as wrong in order to show how everyone has their own problems." The book narrates cases of pedophilia, rape, and incest which the author described as "friendly," "innocent," and "tender."

Cole said she was "speechless," that this book would be on the recommended reading list, and she set an ultimatum. "The material that is sexually graphic, we don't agree with it and it needs to be pulled from the curriculum immediately," she stated firmly.

Cole also condemned the pedophile's use of the Lord's name to justify his actions – "I work only through the Lord. He sometimes uses me to help people," the character claims. The director of One Million Moms called this "an extremely sneaky way to involve violence in the school system."

The director asked why books like this one, as opposed to the classics, are recommended to children. She mentioned "millions of books to recommend" as opposed to this one.

Cole stressed that neither One Million Moms nor the American Family Association has yet taken a stand against Common Core in general, but when it comes to The Bluest Eye, she proved more definitive. "Nothing good will come of this," she proclaimed.

The Christian Post also asked Family Research Council senior fellow Peter Sprigg about the book. Sprigg agreed that The Bluest Eye should be censored from Common Core’s recommended reading list and fretted about what Common Core means for "community moral standards," but betrayed a slightly more nuanced understanding of the purpose of fiction:

Cases like this, Sprigg explained, inflame the debate over national education standards. While he emphasized that the Family Research Council has not yet taken a stand on the issue, he defended as legitimate the fear that Common Core "will not leave room for community standards to be applied – especially moral community standards."

While Cole argued that Morrison, the book's author, likely used the book to argue for moral relativism, Sprigg gave her the benefit of the doubt. He argued that Morrison might have just wanted the reader to feel empathy for a wrongdoer – not to condone actions like rape and pedophilia.

Morrison’s book has also come under criticism from Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, which warned, “The book — a past selection of Oprah’s Book Club — has graphic sex scenes and descriptions that are likely to make you blush.”

One Million Moms Protests 'The Fosters' For Trying to 'Desensitize America and Our Children by Promoting Inappropriate Behavior'

The American Family Association’s One Million Moms is asking members to contact advertisers on “The Fosters,” a show about a lesbian couple raising adopted, biological and foster children, and demand that they drop the program for “attacking my faith, morals and values.”

“Not only is this program insulting to conservative viewers and traditional families,” the sample email to advertisers reads, “but it also focuses on a controversial subject that your company would probably not desire to be associated with.”

The group claims that the show’s emphasis on helping foster children is offset by the attempt to “redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together” and “desensitize America and our children by promoting inappropriate behavior, especially on a family channel.”

ABC Family Channel has several anti-family programs and has now added to that growing list. ABC Family's new show "The Fosters" is about a lesbian couple and their diverse family. Adding this program to a lineup that already includes "Pretty Little Liars," "Twisted," "Daddy Baby" and "The Lying Game" many demonstrates to families that ABC Family Channel is anything but family-friendly. But, because "family" is part of the network's name, we thought a warning should be sent out to anyone who continues to watch the channel.

New episodes will air on Monday evenings at 9:00pm ET/8:00pm CT. In addition, frequent promos are airing for this new series. Families should avoid the network completely; otherwise, you run the risk of viewing a commercial for this new, offensive program.

ABC Family's show "The Fosters" is about two women raising a multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together. Unacceptable content in the first episode included one foster child as an inmate in a juvenile detention center, sneaking and selling prescription drugs to earn money, a lesbian couple kissing on the mouth and snuggling in bed together, mentioning they are gay multiple times and purchasing condoms for their eldest son. …

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's program "The Fosters." This week's national sponsors were: Olive Garden, Pier 1 Imports, Popeye's, Wendy's and Royal Caribbean.

Urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of the attempt to desensitize America and our children by promoting inappropriate behavior on a family channel.

As a parent and a member of, I strongly encourage your company to drop all plans of financially supporting the inappropriate ABC Family Channel program "The Fosters." This show is degrading to families and damaging to our culture.

I am appalled that your company is supporting a show that features homosexuality in a positive light on a family channel. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together. The content of this program also includes violence involving children, children selling drugs and parents purchasing condoms for their children so they can practice casual sex before marriage. Obviously, none of this material is acceptable to air on a family show.

While your company is a household name, I do not agree with your financial backing of this program. As a Christian, I feel you are attacking my faith, morals and values. Not only is this program insulting to conservative viewers and traditional families, but it also focuses on a controversial subject that your company would probably not desire to be associated with.

As a consumer, I am asking you to please pull your ad immediately and to support traditional family values and family-friendly programming instead. My decision to support your company depends on it.

I urge your company to place "The Fosters" on your "do not advertise" list in protest of attempting to desensitize America and our children by promoting inappropriate behavior, especially on a family channel.

My family and I look forward to your response.

Religious Right Groups Launch Annual Protest of 'Gay Day' at Disney

Just like last year, the Florida Family Association is getting ready to fly banners condemning “Gay Day” at Disney World this June.

In a press release, the group notes that “the State of Florida does NOT prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation,” urging Disney to exercise its “right to prohibit people from entering the park with tee shirts that promote LGBT behavior.”

FFA head David Caton told the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow the organization has two planes flying banners in English and Spanish telling people to avoid Disney World out of fear that there will be people “promoting their various alternative lifestyles.”

The AFA’s One Million Moms is also upset about Gay Day, urging members to contact Disney and tell them that they are acting in an “irresponsible” way by not forbidding the event which “is planned with the intent to expose and desensitize children to this lifestyle by same-sex couples holding hands, hugging and kissing.”

Gay Day at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World on Saturday, June 1, 2013 will expose thousands of children to lifestyle. Please send your email to officials.

How would you feel if you entered the Magic Kingdom anticipating a normal day of fun with your family only to witness thousands of same-sex couples holding hands, hugging, kissing and wearing tee-shirts that promoted their lifestyle?

Disney’s official email response to critics of Gay Day erroneously pretends that they have nothing to do with Gay Day and have no control over who enters their park. Disney’s email response is posted below. The following facts clearly contradict Disney’s position.

• Disney has prohibited drag queens from entering the Magic Kingdom following Gay Day 1991 when even the mainstream media reported in a negative light the estimated 1,800 cross dressers in the park with children. Yet, Disney continues to allow thousands of people to wear shirts promoting homosexuality.

• Dozens of gang members visiting Disneyland in California have been evicted after entering the park wearing gang colors according to Kenneth Green, Director of Corporate Communications. He said the company was concerned the groups might intimidate or invoke fear in the hearts of regular patrons.

So, Disney can see where a dozen people wearing gang colors might be offensive to regular families but not thousands of same-sex revelers wearing shirts that flaunt and promote homosexual, lesbian and transgender behavior.

• Disney provided special group discount tickets with a pink Mickey logo for Gay Day Patrons.

• Disney paid personnel to hand out special pamphlets to Gay Day patrons informing them of organized activities.

• Disney paid personnel to greet Gay Day patrons at the front gate.

• Disney recruited employees to be guides for special groups of Gay Day patrons.

• Disney gave free Disney tee shirts to people who complained that they did not know that the red shirt they innocently wore meant they supported Gay Day.

• The State of Florida does NOT prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Disney has clearly played a role in helping to sponsor this event for years and allows activities they could otherwise prevent. Disney has the right to prohibit people from entering the park with tee shirts that promote LGBT behavior but deliberately chooses to allow this to occur in the midst of thousands of children.

One Million Moms to Target 'The New Normal' for Promoting 'Moral Decay in Public Airwaves'

Today on Focal Point, American Family Association spokesman hosted Monica Cole of One Million Moms, the AFA’s women’s subgroup, to talk about why listeners should be upset about the NBC comedy The New Normal. The New Normal, which involves a gay couple who hire a surrogate mother, is not the first Ryan Murphy show the AFA went after, as Fischer and Cole last year declared war on Glee. Fischer maintained that the show shows “how subversive Hollywood is when it comes to undermining our values” and Cole said the show “continues to attack Christian values, conservative values, the traditional family,” mourning that “the moral decay in public airwaves is continuing.”


Are Boycotts Moral? For the Religious Right, It Depends on Who They're Targeting

Last year, Liberty Counsel and the Family Research Council were outraged — outraged! — when gay rights advocates began pressuring companies to end their ties to a so-called charity group called the CGBG, which funds anti-gay organizations including LC and FRC. The two groups urged retailers to “remain neutral in the culture wars” and accused gay rights supporters of “economic terrorism.” The FRC even created a website where activists could call on companies to “remain neutral in the current cultural battles, thus enabling you to focus on business and not force consumers to make purchasing choices based on corporate political agendas.”

Of course, both LC and FRC had organized and endorsed similar pressure campaigns against corporations in the past, but apparently those didn’t constitute “economic terrorism.”

As Chick-fil-A, a company that bankrolls anti-gay groups and whose CEO has said marriage equality is inviting God’s judgment, faces a national backlash for its opposition to gay rights, once again the Religious Right is employing an almost pathetic use of double standards.

The National Organization for Marriage, which literally has two campaigns dedicated to boycotting Starbucks and General Mills for refusing to stay “neutral” in the marriage equality debate, is now outraged that gay rights activists are boycotting Chick-fil-A.

NOM's state affiliate in Minnesota organized a protest outside of the corporate headquarters of General Mills and in a letter to Minnesota corporations, NOM asked that companies “stay neutral and respect the conscience rights of your customers and employees who are on both sides” of a proposed state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

Another group shockingly outraged by protests targeting Chick-fil-A is the American Family Association.

The AFA and its subgroups One Million Moms and One Million Dads have boycotted countless companies, most recently leading boycotts and pressure campaigns against Home Depot, Ford, GAP, Macy's, JC Penney for their advertising campaigns and efforts to create inclusive work environments “rather than remain neutral in the culture war,” and against DC, Marvel and Archie Comics for including gay characters.

In fact, the AFA goes so far as to claim, without any evidence, that it’s pressure campaign is responsible for financial problems at JC Penney.

So the question needs to be asked, did the AFA, in the words of its spokesman Bryan Fischer, "go Ahmadinejad" on JC Penney, Home Depot and Archie?
