Fox News commentator Todd Starnes joined Sandy Rios on American Family Radio yesterday to discuss the marriage equality cases being argued at the Supreme Court this week. The two took a grim view of the proceedings: Starnes lamented that opponents of gay rights have become “second-class” citizens and Rios warned that a Supreme Court marriage equality victory would lead to “tremendous punishment” for anti-gay activists. “We are in for persecution like we have never seen,” she said, to which Starnes replied, “Well, it’s already started.”...

Concerned Women for America’s Chelsen Vicari in a blog post yesterday attacked Starbucks for supporting marriage equality, which she argues will open the door to anti-straight discrimination. Vicari called Starbucks CEO and gay rights supporter Howard Schultz “prejudicial and bigoted” for telling Thomas Strobhar of the Corporate Morality Action Center that he should sell his shares in the company if he is so distraught over Starbucks’ endorsement of same-sex marriage legislation in Washington state. Vicari claimed that Starbucks “refuses pro-marriage supporters... MORE

Things continue not going well for Michele Bachmann. Matt Barber says that if the Supreme Court doesn't make the correct rulings on DOMA and Prop 8, it "will literally shake Western civilization to the core." Literally? Richard Land likewise weighs in, saying "we should not think that our nation will escape God's judgment if we redefine what God has already defined. We are certain that the omniscient and omnipotent God is aware of our nation's debate about marriage and that He is watching what we do." Jeb Bush praises his brother, the former... MORE

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) appeared Saturday on Eagle Forum Live with Phyllis Schlafly and criticized the Republican National Committee’s endorsement of comprehensive immigration reform. King said that the GOP instead should focus on pushing for a contiguous border fence along the US-Mexico border, saying that “our public policy people” have no excuse since the Chinese built the Great Wall of China. Later, while speaking to a caller named Meryl who complained that undocumented immigrants have trespassed on her property in Missouri, King said that if the US gives up on the rule... MORE

Far-right activists continue to warn that President Obama is stealthily preparing to create a dictatorship, attack white Christian civilians and incite a civil war, and a new story from WorldNetDaily finally gives us absolutely definitive proof that Obama is plotting exactly that. According to WND’s favorite forensic profiler Andrew Hodges, a joke that President Obama made about sequestration negotiations with congressional Republicans was really a ploy to begin imposing martial law, just as Saul Alinsky wanted: In his newest analysis...

On the most recent episode of "God Knows," Cindy Jacobs recounted a time when a young woman came to her to ask her to pray for her aunt, who had been committed to a mental hospital.  Knowing that neither the young women nor her aunt had the faith necessary to stand in the gap against the demonic spirit afflicting her, Cindy took it upon herself to pray and "bind the spirit of insanity" and so she "bound the spirit of darkness off that women and, you know, she was totally set free in her mind [and] released from the institution": MORE

National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown joined Steve Deace on Friday to discuss the marriage equality cases being argued this week at the Supreme Court. If the Court rules broadly in favor of equality, Brown said, NOM would turn its focus toward advocating for a Federal Marriage Amendment banning marriage equality throughout the country. Responding to conservatives who are concerned about the Federal Marriage Amendment’s infringement on states’ rights, Brown invoked Abraham Lincoln: “We need a solution in this country, we cannot be, as Lincoln said, half...

Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families appeared on The Mike Huckabee Show today to discuss the upcoming marriage cases at the Supreme Court, where he reiterated his argument that the GOP would be winning more elections if focused more on opposing gay equality and reproductive rights. Like other conservative activists who have floated the creation of an anti-gay third party, Bauer told Huckabee that “the Republican Party would literally destroy itself if it switches on those issues” as “we are facing the possibility of a possible fissure here which would hurt...

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association on Friday said that she isn’t surprised that a large majority of young people support marriage equality because “our children, for the most part, have heard nothing but positive things about homosexuality and its effects.” She blamed TV shows like TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress” for making homosexuality seem “kind of fun,” saying they’ve “only painted [it] with a positive brush.” However, Rios claimed that “those of us that have been involved in issues related to this know that...
