We have been watching anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist Avi Lipkin making the rounds on Religious Right radio shows, and yesterday he spoke to VCY America’s Jim Schneider on Crosstalk about how President Obama plans to “Islamicize America.” While this time Lipkin didn’t talk about how the Free Masons and the Illuminati secretly control the world, Lipkin did claim that the “useful idiots in the Democratic Party, including many Jewish people,” are tools of President Obama’s Islamic plot. Lipkin warned that the pro-Obama “black agenda” is... MORE

Back in July, it was Mike Huckabee who birthed the idea for "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" to encourage people to patronize local Chick-fil-A restaurants to show support for the company amid the controversy over CEO Dan Cathy's anti-gay statements and "affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse."
Now Huckabee is looking to recapture that magic with a new effort being promoted by Champion The Vote that seeks to mobilize the masses for the election in November:
Over the last... MORE

Following up on his tweet from yesterday, American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer attacked the city of Berkeley for recognizing September 23rd as “Bisexual and Bi Visibility Day.” Fischer asked his Focal Point audience, “Will there be an incest day, will there be a pedophilia pride day, will there be a bestiality pride day, what’s coming?” Fischer said that because the “homosexual lobby” is treating “sexually aberrant behavior as normal” there is “simply no place to stop.” Last year, Fischer wondered why LGBT pride...

Speaking to a Republican women’s group in Alabama yesterday, state GOP chairman Bill Armistead recommended to his audience a fringe birther movie that claims that President Obama’s real father is American labor activist Frank Marshall Davis, according Mobile Press-Register political editor George Talbot, who was reporting the event on Twitter:
The movie Armistead reportedly recommended, “Dreams From My Real Father,” represents a breakout fringe of the birther movement. The film, according to its director Joel Gilbert, “presents the case that Frank Marshall... MORE

As we noted the other day, Tony Perkins, Jerry Boykin, and Ken Blackwell, all of the Family Research Council, penned a joint op-ed in which they accused the Southern Poverty Law Center and others on the left of leading "an open assault upon those with whom they disagree," and blaming "this type of demonizing" for the shooting that recently took place at FRC headquarters.
Today, Blackwell discussed the topic with WNDTV/Radio America where he, like Tony Perkins before him, also placed the blame on President Obama and his administration for supposedly working with the SPLC... MORE

Congressman Peter King (R-NY) will receive an award tonight from the right-wing Center for Security Policy, the group led by Frank Gaffney that is behind the anti-Muslim witch hunt advocated by King’s Republican colleague Michele Bachmann.
Last year, King hosted roundly-criticized hearings on the “radicalization” of Muslim-Americans and continued to make the false claim that 80 percent of U.S. mosques are “controlled by radical imams.” While King did not sign Bachmann’s letters targeting Muslim-American officials serving in the Obama...

Gary Bauer believes that rather than hurting Mitt Romney, the recently released secret video of his remarks to donors will actually help him with the base and that Romney is probably "sitting there hoping they release more video." Eric Metaxas says that the legalization of gay marriage will "destroy religious freedom and free speech rights." Pamela Geller says that criticism by the Obama administration of the anti-Islam film that sparked riots in the Middle East is "an attempt to get the U.S. to shut down free speech and criminalize criticism of Islam,...

After spending months attacking President Obama over his stance on gay rights and telling African American voters to stop supporting Obama in order to punish him for favoring marriage equality, William Owens of the Coalition of African-American Pastors told the Christian Post that he thinks it’s “ridiculous” for the marriage issue to dominate political debate. “We have more problems than any other group and here we are taking about gay marriage,” Owens said. “It is ridiculous.”
Owens, a liaison for the National Organization for Marriage, was quoted in... MORE

William Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition not only told the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios that Islam is not a religion, but also that the U.S. fails to understand Muslims because our diplomats are homosexual elitists. Murray, who in 2009 maintained that gays cause train crashes, alleged that since Libya Ambassador Christopher Stevens “was probably a homosexual” and that “many of the diplomats” the State Department sends to the Middle East “are homosexuals,” they are unable to understand the violent nature of Islam since they only...
