Mitt Romney’s foreign tour takes another wrong turn. Scott Lively attacks “Homo-Fascism” in WorldNetDaily. Cindy Jacobs’ Reformation Prayer Network is helping to bring a prayer tent outside of the White House South Lawn, which is “a fulfillment of Cindy Jacobs’ vision of the “X” over our nation that transforms into a Bridal Canopy.” Tony Perkins praises Chick-fil-A. Take it away Buster Wilson: “In fact, over the weekend I’ve observed that there is, more often than not, an attitude of shock and... MORE

Earlier this month the American Family Association’s Buster Wilson, who loves floating false conspiracy theories, warned that Obama was creating his own “version of the Brownshirts” through a security program known as the National Defense Executive Reserve and has existed for decades. The AFA posted a video of Wilson entitled, “Is DHS Plotting A Civil War,” and then turned around and removed the video from their YouTube channel; fortunately, we grabbed the video. Today on his program, Wilson reacted to reports that the Department of Homeland Security is “... MORE

New York Times reporter Erik Eckholm has a big front-page story in Sunday’s paper on a case that readers of RWW are familiar with: the disappearance of Lisa Miller. Eckholm traveled to Nicaragua to talk with the Mennonite communities that have helped harbor Miller and her daughter Isabella on their flight from United States law enforcement and from Isabella’s other legal parent, Miller’s former partner Janet Jenkins of Vermont. Miller, who kidnapped her daughter rather than allow her to have visitation rights with Jenkins, has become a cause celebre among the Religious Right... MORE

Pastor and radio host Kevin Swanson of Generations with Vision earlier this month expressed nostalgia for the Pilgrims’ approach to homosexuality, when it was punishable by death. On his radio show last week, longed for a time when Christians “brought the death penalty upon homosexuality” and “for about 1,500 years that form of life had pretty much been eliminated except here and there.” Later in the program, Swanson and his co-host Dave Buehner talked about the backlash over Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s anti-gay statements, including denouncements from...

One of the major backers of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s expansive private school voucher program was Rev. Gene Mills of the Louisiana Family Forum, who also endorsed Jindal’s plan to exempt private schools receiving vouchers from participating “in the state testing and accountability program imposed on traditional and charter public schools.” Private schools receiving vouchers under the program, the vast majority of which are religious schools, are free from the requirement to have their students pass state exams to advance to the next grade level and won’t...

Americans for Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera continued his discussion with Liberty University Law School’s Rena Lindevaldsen on Friday. The two revisited the topic of openly gay judges, specifically the Virginia prosecutor who was rejected from a judgeship simply because he was gay. That discrimination was ok, Lindevaldsen said, because “if you’re engaged in a lifestyle of immorality, whether that be a homosexual lifestyle or an adulterous relationship or fornication, that’s not the type of moral character that I believe should be someone who’s...

Pastor Robert Jeffress has been making the rounds to defend Chick-fil-A’s anti-gay advocacy with claims that gays lead a “miserable lifestyle” and telling his congregants to support “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day”: "The liberals have gone into a frenzy," said Jeffress. "Their first response was to try to stop the expansion of businesses with which they disagree. That should be of great concern for every American," he added. The pastor, who last year made headlines for saying Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is not a Christian and... MORE

A number of prominent women leaders of the Religious Right have come together for the American Prayer Initiative, which is “designed to help draw ‘we the people’ of this nation back to the One upon whom she was founded.’ The group includes the National Day of Prayer’s Shirley Dobson and Vonette Bright, talk show host Janet Parshall, Liberty Counsel’s Anita Staver, Concerned Women for America’s Penny Nance, Susan B. Anthony List’s Marilyn Musgrave, activist Rebecca Hagelin and Susan Allen, wife of Virginia’s George Allen. The group offers... MORE

Eric Lach @ Talking Points Memo: Cantor Defends Bachmann: She’s Concerned About ‘Security Of The Country.’ Kate Sheppard @ Mother Jones: South Dakota Doctors Ordered To Say Abortions Lead to Suicide. Zack Ford @ Think Progress: Journal’s Internal Audit Finds Flawed Gay Parenting Study To Be ‘Bullshit.’ Good As You: Mike Huckabee won’t defend what Dan Cathy *actually* said; because he can’t; knows it’d drain support. Warren Throckmorton: Emails... MORE

Florida’s Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll apologizes for saying that “black women that look like me” aren’t lesbians. Sean Hannity dubs Michele Bachmann and Louie Gohmert “modern day Paul Reveres” for their anti-Muslim witch hunt. In a truly creepy column, Ed Klein gets “inside the mind of Barack Obama.” James Robison claims the Chick-fil-A protests are a “blatant assault on faith” and warns that while we “cannot prevent people from choosing the wide road that leads to hell or creating their own hellish...
