While disappointed that Ted Cruz has dropped out of the presidential race, David Barton vows to fight on: "But we don't walk away from or abandon all we have fought for. Instead, we simply become more engaged -- we elect principled leaders to city council and mayor, school board and county office, for state legislature, and for the House and Senate. We make sure our neighbors are registered to vote and that they choose God-fearing leaders ... And above all, we teach ourselves and others to think and act Biblically."
Peter LaBarbera and Linda Harvey are going after two Cleveland hotels for allowing a "leather weekend" to take place at their facilites: "Events like this are a public health and safety disaster and a direct result of the tolerance of homosexual behavior now being forced on America.

In a perfectly fitting move, Ben Carson will be involved in the process of vetting a running mate for Donald Trump.
Finally, Napp Nazworth insists that evangelicals cannot be blamed for Trump's success: "Trump has already been a disaster for the Republican Party, essentially dismantling the Reagan coalition and undermining its efforts to retain control of Congress. A Trump presidency would be a disaster for the entire nation, given that he is entirely unfit, in character and experience, to be president.For those reasons, it's important to set straight the historical record — evangelicals led the opposition to Trump."
Phyllis Schlafly insists that ex-felons should never be allowed to regain the right to vote: "We do not want convicted murderers and rapists sitting on juries in criminal trials, and we do not want convicted felons to be picking the next leaders of our nation. Elections are for law-abiding citizens to pick law-abiding leaders, not for criminals to elect fellow criminals."
Peter LaBarbera informs Target that "my family and I are joining the Target boycott and will no longer shop at your stores."
Don Boys says that Target must not just be boycotted, but completely destroyed: "Target must be destroyed, not just boycotted and humbled into submission regarding their love affair with the LGBT crowd ... When Target goes belly up, it will send a loud message to other businesses that it is not wise to use perversion to antagonize principled people."
Tony Perkins says that "the Left is never going to be satisfied if faith-based groups can contract with the government at all! They want to squeeze Christians out of government at the same time as they're forcing them out of the marketplace, Public Square, and schools."
Finally, Bill Kristol explains that #NeverTrump apparently doesn't actually mean "never Trump."
Ahead of the Indiana primary, Glenn Beck again asks his audience to pray and fast: "Tuesday Indiana is making its choice. All will be counted ...

To turn to Him and ask that He will heal our land. Beginning Monday night and running for 24 hours ending on Tuesday will you pray and if possible fast like you have never done before?"

Finally, MRC's Dylan Gwinn goes after ABC's television program "Blackish" for apparently suggesting that white people are racist ... or something: "Is that why so many white people vote to have their money taken away from them by the government, and spent on often-useless and wasteful, but well-meaning government programs to improve health care and education in black neighborhoods?"
Linda Harvey calls on Target employees to rise up: "Some may lose jobs if there’s a downturn in sales. So, why not band together and approach management to stop such foolishness? Or, better yet: Work hard and become management. And then end the promotion of deviance."
Glenn Beck says that Ted Cruz's decision to announce Carly Fiorina as his running mate will be a game changer because she is the "first female" with a chance to become vice president. That must come as news to Sarah Palin and Geraldine Ferraro.

John Hagee says that he is building a "Sanctuary of Hope" for unwed mothers in "response to the barbarism that we saw displayed in these videos on Planned Parenthood." That is odd, given that they announced this project back in 2014.
We should probably not base our public policy on a bad experience that Joseph Farah once had: "I don’t much want to share a restroom with a woman who thinks she’s really a man. I’ll be very honest about that. I remember visiting Amsterdam a few years ago and had to use a public restroom. I was appalled that it was staffed by women attendants. I suddenly lost the overwhelming desire to relieve myself."
Glenn Beck misses blue laws for a typical Beckian reason: "Part of me says we needed those laws to be able to hold our culture and our people together because we don’t have any rituals to do it."
In a move that should not surprise anybody, Jesse Lee Peterson has endorsed Donald Trump.
Finally, a sober warning from David Lane: "Secular, fringe-extremists have become so infatuated with idol worship that they have lost all sense of restraint, with the goals of pushing transgender bathrooms, turning straight men gay and heterosexual women into lesbians."
Mike Huckabee sympathizes with Pat Boone: "I’m not surprised about the backlash against Pat. Any time you defend anything from a Christian perspective, there’s extraordinary pushback. I’ve experienced it, and now Pat has, too."
Todd Starnes says "the Republican party is imploding" because of Donald Trump.
Bradlee Dean insists that the satirical "Gay Manifesto" was not satire at all: "Barack Hussein Obama, the 'first gay president,' and his controllers appointed 225 radical lesbians, homosexuals and transgender to governmental positions only to be used as a political battering ram to upend American sovereignty."

Ex-gay activist Christopher Doyle says "the LGBT lobby is like a kid in a candy store with unlimited credit. The kid is high on sugar and bouncing off the walls while demanding more, all the while disturbing the other customers. The North Carolina Legislature and Governor are the brave candy store owners by saying no, and now the kid is out of control and will stop at nothing to get his way."
David Kupelian declares that "by rolling over for the opposition to these ‘transgender bathroom laws’ and the perverse, bizarre worldview underlying it, we are in the process of corrupting and morally confusing an entire generation of Americans into believing delusion is truth and that commonsense decency and discernment amount to ‘discrimination’ and ‘hate.'"
Finally, FRC continues to pray that anti-LGBT laws will be passed in every state: "Lord, show those who see this as trivial that every assault on religious liberty is an assault to the foundation of all liberty. If the government can coerce us to abandon our core biblical faith and practice as it pertains to marriage, it can force us to believe and do anything. Shake your people to pray, to speak out, and to take action. May pastors and churches lead the battle to pass common sense laws in every state. May those who live in anti-religious liberty states fight to restore religious liberty, flee to a free state, or be prepared to stand in the fiery trial that will soon come to every jurisdiction in America."

Finally, Gary Cass has released the third installment of his "Why Donald Trump Is Not A Christian" video series.
Some sober analysis from Michele Bachmann: "The Muslim Brotherhood together with its myriad fake front groups, like a demon, first charms then disarms, then contorts itself into a seemingly friendly face.

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire admits that "I am a hater. And a proud one, I might add. I hate what homosexuality does to people.

I hate that it is taught to our children as normal behavior."
Erik Rush declares that "the 'struggle for LGBT rights' in America is and has always been nothing more than a pretext for the complete disenfranchisement of Christians."
Finally, FRC again prays that anti-LGBT laws will be passed in every state: "May Christians arise in every state to demand that their leaders uphold the religious liberty guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. May every state adopt Religious Freedom Restoration Acts (RFRAs) and Government Non-Discrimination Acts (GNDA) to protect Bible-believing Christians and all Americans. May our governments cease and desist from dispensing special rights to individuals because of their sexual proclivities and practices. May God intervene to stop the insanity and preserve the innocence of our children and grandchildren."

Finally, John Burton says that the president must be the nation's "pastor in chief": "The reality is that we are absolutely electing someone to lead our nation who must be first and foremost a servant of God ...

Take that, PayPal! "The American Family Association is announcing that it is immediately suspending its use of PayPal payment services in an effort to expose the company for threatening states and trying to force them to go against the will of the people."

FRC prays that every state will pass similar anti-LGBT laws: "May pastors teach their flocks about the realities of the war being waged upon them. May they enlist Christian citizens to do their part to protect their children and grandchildren from becoming victims of SOGI laws. May every state legislature and Congress pass effective laws, replacing ineffective laws with ones that truly protect the religious liberty for all Americans. May pastors organize Culture Impact Teams to help their people defend their communities!"
