While most readers found the recent Time Magazine profile of Justice Anthony Kennedy to be an innocuous piece about the justice who has emerged as a deciding vote on some of the more divisive Supreme Court decisions, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) sees a surreptitious effort by the media to convince Kennedy to uphold the health care reform law.
While speaking to Sandy Rios of the American Family Association earlier this week, Bachmann warned that if Kennedy is “succumbing to flattery in the media” then “he could potentially be persuaded to go the way of the left,” as... MORE

As is customary, Bryan Fischer began his radio program yesterday with a discussion of his current reading in the Bible, in this case a passage from the Book of Ephesians pertaining to Satan, demons, and spiritual warfare. The discussion prompted Fischer to declare that Satan's spiritual warfare is always at work in our culture and that Satan is behind everything from gay rights to Planned Parenthood to environmentalism:
Any time you see some kind of agenda that is anti-human being, it's anti-baby, it's anti-humanity, it's anti-population growth, you're looking at something that... MORE

Earlier today we posted a video of Frank Gaffney claiming that the Muslim Brotherhood was waging "pre-violent" jihad against America by infiltrating our churches, courtrooms, and capital markets in order to "destroy us from within."
Gaffney's explained that it was the strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood to use "pre-violent" jihad in places where outright violence would hinder their efforts to install Sharia. America is just such a place, which is why the Brotherhood is currently working behind the scenes in order to soften us up to the point where it... MORE

Kevin Swanson of Generations with Vision Ministry this week on his radio show hailed the roundly criticized Mark Regnerus study on gay parenting, but warned that the purportedly harmful effects of same-sex parents are still unknown. After maligning other studies that didn’t observe significant differences between the children of same-sex and opposite-sex couples with cohost Dave Buehner and making a comparison between studies of gay parents with studies of suicide bombers, Swanson declared that the “generational outcome of kids raised in homosexual families” will be “...

One of the central components of David Barton's entire brand of pseudo-history is the way in which he holds up obscure documents, sermons, and individuals from the Founding Era and presents them as representative of the entire generation.
Barton will cite some textbook with references to God, or some sermon discussing the rights of conscience, or some Founding Father who delivered an impassioned defense of Christianity and declare that at the founding of this nation, everyone knew these things and held these views.
Barton is constantly citing unfamiliar individuals from the Founding Era... MORE

Joining other anti-gay activists in embracing a debunked study about the children of gay and lesbian parents, Linda Harvey of Mission America today warned that families led by same-sex couples represent “a picture of dysfunction.” Harvey, who this week in a WorldNetDaily column lamented that society is allowing “sexual deviance to be exalted,” urged listeners to “protect our kids” from gays who “insist on modeling their sexual immorality to their children” and expose “kids to serious kids”:
Harvey: Friends, this is a picture of... MORE

Focus on the Family president Jim Daly hosted Al Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Focus on the Family board member, to discuss same-sex marriage and its supposed threat to religious freedom. Daly claimed that Satan himself is promoting same-sex marriage since “he hates marriage because it’s a reflection of God’s image.” “The Enemy hates that, it’s disgusting to him,” Daly said, “and with that, he wants to break it down, he wants to destroy it.” Later, Mohler maintained that “same-sex marriage...
