Don Boys longs for a politician who will declare "as to homosexuals, I promise to never call them 'gays' but homosexuals, perverts, or sodomites. That is not hatred but good, standard English. Those terms provide a perfect understanding of the point of discussion and do not bow to the political and incorrect use of 'gay.' Whoever first called homosexuals 'gay' either did not understand what “gay” meant or did not know anything about homosexuality."
David Whitney says that Democrats are "so devoted to this Satanic vision they intend to force every nation in the world to comply with it through the means of bribery of those other governments with U.S. Foreign aid and Foreign policy to promote sodomy."
Finally, a proclamation from John Piper: "The supernatural monster who orchestrates the kidnapping, enslaving, and thousand-fold drugging, selling, raping, and killing of girls around the globe is the same one who has masterminded the murderous cultural delusion — from the highest court to the lowest porn-flick — that the practice of sodomy is delightful, not deadly."

Scott Lively warns that "there's a serious problem of moral compromise on the homosexual issue in the GOP": "If it abandons its logical presuppositions, such as the resolve to protect civilization from the cancer of sexual degeneracy, then it loses all moral authority. True conservatism must agree with God that 'A man must not lie with a man as with a woman. It is an abomination' (Leviticus 18:22)."
Liberty Counsel announces that it "will present oral arguments on August 31 requesting the Virginia Supreme Court to hear the case against the School Board of Fairfax County regarding its illegal policy involving 'sexual orientation,' 'gender identity,' and 'gender expression.'"
Things are not going well for NOM: "The success of NOM's Summer Membership Drive is absolutely critical for us to generate the resources we need to carry on our essential work fighting for marriage and religious liberty. And I have to tell you, I am disappointed with the response thus far. We should be over 20% toward our goal by now, but we're only at 10%. Needless to say, ten percent is not going to cut it."
Laura Hollis says the media is to blame for Donald Trump's success: "Your lies and manipulation, your work in cahoots with political groups, your incestuous relationship with the White House, your deceit and pretense of objectivity and your hyperbole have completely discredited you.Now that you think that there truly is something to fear from this man ('No, seriously! We really mean it this time!'), nobody’s listening. And it serves you right."

Finally, a warning from Laurie Higgins: "The Republican Party is rapidly becoming less shaped by serious Christians and thus less conservative on essential issues related to sexuality, including marriage and physical privacy. The party is being corroded by vipers like U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) and U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) who has asex-rejecting daughter, foolish men with deep pockets like Peter Thiel, and by homosexual activists like Milo Yiannopoulis."
A warning from the Benham brothers: "We believe if the sexual revolution is left unchecked it will become a crime to confess biblical truth in today’s America. Those that dare hold a biblical view of sexuality will spend time in jail. Those that refuse to participate in gay weddings or gay pride events will lose their business license. Perhaps it may even become a crime to teach our children biblical values when it comes to sexuality."
Tom DeLay is upset that the RNC allowed Peter Thiel to give a speech "glorifying homosexuality" and so is Peter LaBarbera.

Michele Bachmann says that Donald Trump will "protect innocent women and children and vulnerable older women from men gaining entrance into bathrooms. This is is an issue where while it might not seem that important on a world scale, it is important to normal people going about their daily lives, because they really are upset about the other sex walking into their bathroom, and rightfully so."
Sylvia Thompson is "convinced that Donald Trump is the force necessary to begin eradication of the poison that is leftist progressivism in this country" but is also worried that he might not be anti-gay enough.

A warning from Robert Oscar Lopez: "Christians are like the rabbits in Watership Down, the species 'with a thousand enemies,' slowly realizing that polemicists like Zack Ford and Sally Kohn aren’t harmlessly insane people who might become cute, furry creatures if only shown some love and pity. No, these LGBT commentators are bloodhounds who would like nothing better than to see Christians driven out of public life and herded into windowless basements with duct tape over their mouths."
David Barton says that Donald Trump gave right-wing activists total control over the Republican platform and, as a result, it is not much different than it would have been if Ted Cruz were the nominee: "A few specifics here and there, but I don’t think the tone would be different, I don’t think the issues would be different. I think it would be very close."

And then in response to that, 1973, abortion ... Because of the bloodshed in the womb, now we are starting to see it in the streets. I'm telling you, it is because we as a nation have left God."

Mat Staver says that a man trying to marry his laptop is what happens "when you say that gender no longer matters in a gender-specific relationship such as marriage, then anything goes. It becomes a free-for-all; marriage becomes a mockery, and that, I think, is one of the aspects of this particular case — marriage becomes a mockery. But we're going to see more of that ridiculous kind of notion, and really, at the end of the day, all this is an assault on marriage itself."

David Kupelian says "it’s no exaggeration to say that, on close examination, just about every crazy, perverse, suicidal trend you can identify in today’s America – and for that matter, in Europe, currently reeling under the onslaught of a full-blown Islamic invasion – can be traced directly to the abandonment of the Western world’s founding religion and moral values in response to the left’s decades-long war on Christianity."
