Mike Huckabee says he’s not a birther…but thinks the issue “shows how wrong the Democrats are about that and about everything else they've been promoting the last four years” and is “another good reason, since they can't get even the simplest facts right, to make sure they're not in charge and in power the next four years.”
Southern Baptist leader and conservative activist Richard Land, who was caught plagiarizing parts of his radio show, teaches at a school where plagiarists are expelled.
Meanwhile, Land warns that “pornography is... MORE

Today, yet another court ruled that the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional, this time finding that Section 3 of the law, which prevents the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages in states where they are legal, fails the “rational basis test” as applied to laws that deny equal protection and harm a group long subject to discrimination. The unanimous ruling by the three judge panel of the First Circuit Court of Appeals, including two Republican nominees, found no “connection between DOMA’s treatment of same-sex couples and its asserted...

On his radio program yesterday, Steve Deace welcomed Bryan Fischer for a long discussion about Fischer's recent column arguing that "homosexuality is not a conservative value."
Facetiously declaring that "haters of a feather stick together," Deace brought Fischer to try and explain why the Republican Party seemed so intent on embracing the issue of homosexuality at the expense of the support of Christian conservatives. Fischer warned that if the GOP continued along this path, it was going to spell the end of the Republican Party while Deace simply could not... MORE

After the American Family Association closed its Center for Law and Policy, right-wing attorney Steve Crampton joined up with another fervently anti-gay group, Liberty Counsel, where he now serves as the organization’s Vice President of Legal Affairs. Yesterday, he appeared on VCY America’s Crosstalk with host Jim Schneider to discuss Liberty Counsel’s claim that the Department of Justice compelled a public university in Arkansas to allow a transgender woman, Jennifer Braly, to access the women’s restroom.
However, the DOJ says that it simply sent a letter to the... MORE

The ad promoting tourism to the US seemed innocuous enough, but Family Research Council president Tony Perkins warns that the advertising campaign is being used to “highlight same-sex attractions.” The Discover America ad highlights diversity in the US, including a song by Rosanne Cash and images of an interracial couple, two Muslim women in a city and people celebrating the Hindu festival Holi. But Perkins is peeved by its attempt “to celebrate homosexuality” by featuring a man with his arm around his partner on a bus for almost two seconds.
Perkins claimed that the... MORE

A few weeks ago, Roger Schlafly mourned a Census Bureau report showing that non-white births have now exceeded white births in the U.S, declaring that this was "not a good thing" because "immigrants do not share American values," by which he meant "vote Republican."
Today, Rick Scarborough of Vision America sent out an email warning that "the non-Hispanic white share of the population will fall from 70% today to a bare majority by the year 2050" and suggesting that is a bad thing. While insisting that "the racial mix of this nation shouldn... MORE
