bullying, which is why anti-bullying advocates are trying to eliminate it.

- Religious Right activists are hosting a symposium addressing the question: "Family Policy Lessons from Other Lands: What Should America Learn?" As in, what can we learn from Russia's crackdown on gays that can be applied here.

- CBN "journalist" David Brody loves Sarah Palin: "Folks need to cut Sarah Palin some slack.
She’s got more principle and determination in one finger than hordes of liberals combined. Oh, and this Mamma Grizzly is smarter

could a youth who may have been born in Kenya, who spent part of his childhood in Muslim Indonesia with his hippy mother, who palled

They are expanding dependency on government rather than bringing people into the economic mainstream. They are cultural radicals declaring war on the family and unborn children. They have a foreign policy that reaches out to our enemies and alienates our allies. Yet GOP elites, the professional consultants and the ad men can't seem to figure out that this is a huge opportunity to define them as such and call them out for their extremism."
- Gary Cass is mad about ENDA: "ENDA opens the door to bizarre behavior. Will you send your elementary age kids to a class with a cross-dressing teacher? This bill would stop schools from barring this behavior. Why are political leaders giving in to selfish adults with emotional issues, and not thinking about the innocent children?

in David Barton's decision not to launch a primary challenge.

kills 915 children a day."
- CBN "journalist" David Brody says
things are falling into place for the Tea Party: "Have you read the headlines about Obamacare since it rolled out? This is exactly
what Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Tim Huelskamp and dozens of others predicted would happen. It looks like those 'Wacko Birds' are going
to be proven right. And when that happens, two things happen: the Tea Party movement gets another serious injection of credibility and
that very well may translate into electoral success in November 2014. Meanwhile, President Obama has egg on his face after these
Obamacare debacles. This is all setting up very nicely for the Tea Party."

- Finally, FRC continues to pray against marriage equality: "May God help the pastors and churches in New Jersey, Hawaii, Illinois and New Mexico, to stand and do what only they can to withstand and stop the evil of 'legalized' same-sex marriage. May God give them eyes to see that there can be no religious freedom in a society where homosexual license is honored above God and religious liberty. May they be given wisdom and strength to prevail over everything that God calls abomination, promising to destroy those who embrace it (Lev 18:22; 20:13; Eze 3:17-21; Mt 19:4-6; Gal 5:1; Eph 5:31-31)."

The federal government and deceived representatives are forcing legislation, policies, and practices on American citizens, demanding that our tax dollars—our money, which God has trusted to our watchcare—be used to support worthless, godless, freedom-damaging policies, programs, and laws."
Finally, some Tea Party activists are declaring that Rick Scarborough does not, in any way, represent the Tea Party.
