The Family Research Council needs your help to "stop secular tyranny." Let’s just say it: The Republicans are the problem. Gary Bauer is the latest to claim that it is really Democrats and the media who are attacking Mitt Romney's Mormon faith. Al Mohler defends the Boy Scouts for booting a lesbian den mother. Kelly Boggs says he must fight the culture war because the Left has "invaded the living room of society and are pushing to normalize many behaviors that are aberrant." Finally, you simply must watch this video in which Janet Porter... MORE

Truth in Action Ministries has embraced the work of anti-gay activist Michael Brown in recent weeks, producing a condensed version of his book, A Queer Thing Happened to America, called A Stealth Agenda, and inviting him to appear in short films describing the “radical homosexual agenda” as a deadly iceberg and another defending countries that criminalize homosexuality. Today, Brown appeared on the group’s flagship radio program Truth that Transforms where he was introduced by hosts Carmen Pate and John Rabe, who likened homosexuality to “bondage” and even... MORE

One of the most amazing things about the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer is his ability to outdo himself on an almost daily basis.
About a year ago, we wrote an entire report chronicling all of the bigoted and crazy things he had said to date and since its publication, Fischer has said dozens of new things that make the things in the report pale in comparison. And every time we post some new display of Fischer's lunacy and think he could not possibly surpass it, he manages to prove us wrong.
And last Friday, he did so again, declaring that he honestly believes... MORE

On Thursday, Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) appeared on Today’s Issues with Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, in an effort to drum up support for his Military Religious Freedom Protection Act. Huelskamp’s bill purportedly prevents “discrimination” against members of the military based on their beliefs on “human sexuality,” while also banning the use of military property for any same-sex “marriage or marriage-like ceremony.” Discussing the bill, the congressman accused President Obama of launching a “shocking violation of religious...

After American Family Association Bryan Fischer went into all-out war with Mitt Romney’s campaign for hiring an openly gay foreign policy spokesman, his “straights only” position won support from other Religious Right leaders like Gary Bauer and Tony Perkins. Now, Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality is jumping to Fischer’s defense as well, telling talk show host Janet Mefferd on Friday that Romney is “putting his finger in the eye of the pro-family movement” with the hire, even though Romney has emphasized his anti-gay bona fides...

On today's edition of Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Matt Barber and Shawn Akers were discussing the opposition from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to the Obama Administration's contraception mandate and the Religious Right's related outrage rooted in the myth that the mandate and health care reform legislation require every taxpayer to pay for abortion.
Barber was absolutely incensed, saying that the mandate was just like Muslim terrorists forcing people to kill members of their own family and another example of President Obama's tyranny:... MORE

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah is upset that Republican congressional candidate Samuel Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, believes President Obama is a Christian (which he explained in a rather peculiar and patronizing letter to David Brody), because according to Farah, Obama “has been at war with God before he took office and ever since”:
But what is the evidence of Obama’s Christian faith? His attendance for 20 years in Jeremiah Wright’s schizoid, America-hating, Liberation Theology cult? What does this have to do the Jesus? Nothing.
Is this naivet... MORE

In a move that surprises nobody, Allen West has endorsed Joe The Plumber for Congress. Bryan Fischer continues his crusade against Mitt Romney over the hiring of Richard Grenell. And Fischer gets some company from Matthew J. Franck, who says "Grenell has made a particular crusade of the marriage issue, with a kind of unhinged devotion that suggests a man with questionable judgment." Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition is sponsoring a car in a NASCAR Sprint Cup series race this weekend. I guess that is what Reed meant when he promised that the FFC was... MORE
