On Monday, Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality joined Vic Eliason of Voice of Christian Youth America radio to discuss his group’s banquet honoring Scott Lively, an anti-gay activist who influenced legislation in Uganda that would criminalize homosexuality and in some cases impose the death penalty. Lively also wrote a thoroughly discredited book, The Pink Swastika, which blamed gays for Nazism and the Holocaust. Regrettably, a vandal threw two chunks of concrete through the window of the school hosting the banquet with the message “Shut down Lively.”... MORE

While speaking with Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on yesterday’s edition of Today’s Issues, Rick Santorum argued that single mothers were the “political base” of the Democratic Party, and that Republicans should work to lessen single motherhood in order to score political points against their Democratic rivals. The Democratic Party, Santorum said, relies on “single mothers who run a household” and have a “desire for government” as their voter base, and concluded that building “two parent families” is necessary...

Yesterday at the Values Voter Summit, Robert Jeffress endorsed and introduced Rick Perry with a speech where he subtly contrasted the "born again Christian" Perry with his chief opponent Mitt Romney, a Mormon. Later that day, Jeffress made clear in an interview with Bryan Fischer that he believes that Romney is a member of a cult, repeating his 2008 attacks against Romney and the Mormon faith.  Jeffress' anti-Mormon views should have been no surprise to the Perry camp, and in this interview last year with the Trinity Broadcasting Network, Jeffress...

Following his endorsement and introduction of Rick Perry at the Values Voter Summit, Robert Jeffress went on Focal Point with Bryan Fischer to chastise Romney's Mormon faith, arguing that he is not a "true, born again follower of Christ." He said that only Perry can defeat "the most pro-homosexual, most pro-abortion president in history." "It is not Christianity, it is not a branch of Christianity," Jeffress said, "It is a cult." Jeffress went on to explain that many evangelical Christians will not vote for Romney because he is...

Liberty Counsel head Mat Staver dedicated his speech at the Values Voter Summit to discussing how America's cultural values are under assault from the left, naming legal abortion, LGBT equality and secular government as ways progressives are undermining the country's moral fiber. Watch: Staver: These values, these fundamental freedoms are literally at stake in the elections and also in our local communities. It is the future of American civilization that will be determined on our watch and I firmly believe that. The battles we face in America today are not about necessarily... MORE

Even before the opening bell at the Values Voter Summit, the Liberty Counsel hosted a breakfast on messaging and outreach to Hispanic Americans. Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver shared the stage with Tony Calatayud, a Miami-based activist who works for the Spanish language arm of Christian radio Salem Communications.   Calatayud, who helped Marco Rubio get elected to the U.S. Senate from Florida, now travels the country helping to identify and support conservative Hispanic candidates with the group Conservadores. Staver said that Hispanic unhappiness with Barack Obama is... MORE
