Matt Barber says "people naturally bristle when they think about what would it take actually consummate a so-called same-sex marriage between a man and a man. People naturally have a revulsion of this abnormal, disordered sexual behavior." The Colorado Personhood Coalition has filed a challenge to the determination that it did not gather enough valid signatures to have a personhood amendment put on the ballot for the third time. FRC issues its latest prayer targets. Bryan Fischer said he wiil be speaking at the civil disobedience rally outside the... MORE

Back in July we asked how Religious Right groups were able to keep a straight face while railing against the very concept of boycotts as part of their defense of Chick-fil-A, seeing that anti-gay organizations such as the American Family Association and the National Organization for Marriage champion many boycotts of their own. In fact, the AFA and its affiliates are leading numerous boycotts of clothing, auto, home improvement, publishing, entertainment and food companies. But AFA host Sandy Rios today spoke to James Simpson, a conservative writer who wrote a report for the right-wing... MORE

At a 2011 “pastor’s briefing” with disgraced pseudo-historian David Barton, Congressman and Senate candidate Todd Akin (R-MO) recounted an experience of going to jail after protesting against abortion rights. Akin told the audience that he had earlier spoken with “a group of people who had been in jail with me” who were all “involved in the pro-life movement.” “Don’t tell anybody I’m a jail bird,” Akin said, briefly telling a story about when “a bunch of us sat in front of these doors and the police gave us a ride to...

As we have noted over the last few days, there has been a bit of confusion over the remarks that Donald Trump recently delivered at Liberty University when he told the students at this Christian university: "Don't let people take advantage; get even!" Trump, of course, is standing by his remarks and so is Liberty University, as chancellor and president Jerry Falwell Jr. told Newsmax that Trump's Convocation speech was "probably the best one in the history of the school" and that his message of "get even" was not "contrary to what Jesus taught at all...

Far-right activist David Horowitz has been out promoting his new book, Radicals: Portraits of a Destructive Passion, and told conservative talk show host Steve Deace yesterday that President Obama, much like professor Cornel West, is taken seriously simply because he is black. During an incoherent rant, Horowitz asserted that Obama “would never be president if he weren’t black” as no one with the same “curious background and radicalism would ever have been nominated, let alone elected president if he weren’t black.” “Part of the racism of our society...

October is LGBT History Month and Mission America's Linda Harvey is predictably displeased, especially about National Coming Out Day on October 11. Harvey is outraged that schools would teach students about the contributions made by LGBT leaders throughout history instead of simply telling students that "homosexual sin was unnecessary in the past and detracted from the contributions of otherwise talented and productive people."  As for National Coming Out Day, Harvey thinks it should be used to tell students who identify as gay that "they are about to enter a life fraught...

On yesterday's edition of "Focal Point," Bryan Fischer cited the arrest of a protocol officer at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida for allegedly trying to entice a 17-year-old boy into sexual activity to declare that, thanks to to the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, we can "expect to see more instances of pedophilia now in the United States military." Since, Fischer falsely claimed, gays have a "proclivity for the abuse of children," now that they are "allowed to openly serve and can't be disciplined in any way for what they do," we can now...

There is an election coming, so that means we will be seeing various Religious Right coalitions organizing redundant prayer efforts. CitizenLink thinks a video of President Obama talking about the importance of religious liberty is really an effort to use religion as a wedge issue. Tommy Thompson says he'll make a great Senator because "who better than me, who's already finished one of the entitlement programs, to come up with programs to do away with Medicaid and Medicare?" Newt Gingrich says Obama "is like the substitute referees in the sense that... MORE

Bryan Fischer has been under the weather for the last several day and the tone of his show has mellowed tremendously as he simply has not been feeling up to delivering the bombastic diatribes we have come to expect from him. After missing yesterday's show, Fischer returned today feeling a bit better and, accordingly, his show is beginning to return to normal ... as demonstrated by the fact that he responded to a caller wondering whether President Obama was a forerunner to the Antichrist by declaring that Satan is always at work grooming counterfeit religions and false leaders, so "it's...
