The pastor convicted of helping Lisa Miller kidnap her daughter and flee the country says Miller "is a living testimony to the Power of Jesus, the Power that can set us free from the burden of sin, even the sins of a sexual nature that all of us face in this decadent age." Michele Bachmann seems to have real difficulty telling the truth. Rick Green really loves George W. Bush: "When President Bush and Laura came out to speak for a few minutes at the dinner, it only took about thirty seconds of his genuine, no-nonsense but joyful delivery for me to realize how much I...

Mike Huckabee today brought far-right activist Don Feder on to his show to address Feder’s latest column, which argues that the Obama administration is intentionally ignoring threats from Islamic extremists while trying to increase the country’s Muslim population. Feder told Huckabee that while Obama condemned people who slander Mohammad in his 2012 remarks to the United Nations he never mentioned slanders against Jesus Christ, and Huckabee agreed. Of course, Feder and Huckabee are wrong, as in the very next sentence of his address, where he condemned blasphemy laws, Obama... MORE

The American Family Association’s Buster Wilson yesterday took issue with changes in the Boy Scouts of America and lamented the success of gay rights advocates in general. “When we went to sleep it was sort of understood around the world that homosexuals are out there and homosexuals want to be accepted and they’re pushing for some things and that’s the reality of the world we live in,” Wilson said. “But when we woke up it was like everybody who is not homosexual-supportive is the bad guy.” “It’s like somewhere between 1998 and 2005 we...

Bryan Fischer dedicated a segment on his radio program today to once again discussing the news that Jason Collins has become the first active NBA player to announce that he is gay.  And Fischer is unimpressed, to say the least, saying that Collins is a free agent at the end of his career with no real prospects of playing again next season and so he thought this was a good opportunity for himself to garner some attention for himself and make money. "Everybody is talking about how brave and courageous Jason Collins is and I'm going to submit to you that he's not being brave... MORE

Last week, Frank Gaffney spoke to Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) to discuss immigration reform and the government’s response to the Boston Marathon attack. Gohmert, who has cited the bombing as a reason to oppose comprehensive immigration reform, told Gaffney that “millions” of immigrants will be “rushing in” over the border if Congress is poised to pass legislation that includes a pathway to citizenship. He even said that President Obama is “not going to ever secure the border” until Congress gives legal status to people who will “vote Democrat.... MORE

Despite the fact that we watch Glenn Beck's programming for hours every day, we generally have no idea what it is he is taking about, mostly because his stream-of-consciousness style tends to blend his own conspiracies and his regular denunciations of conspiracy theories into one incoherent mess. Last night's program was a perfect example, as he dedicated one portion to raising "unanswered questions" about the judge brought in to read Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda Rights by raising suspicions about her travels to Muslim nations.  That was followed by a discussion of...

Ohio Republican congressman Jim Jordan is joining Sen. Jim Inhofe in endorsing the conspiracy theory that the government is buying up bullets in order to limit their availability to gun owners during an interview yesterday with Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, who was the guest host on Sandy Rios In The Morning. During the program, Perkins praised people for “buying bricks of ammo” and “buying gold” — even though the price of gold is collapsing — adding that he is “buying my kids ammo instead of saving bonds.” Jordan said that...

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies and a prominent voice on the anti-immigrant Right, argued yesterday that the Republican Party shouldn’t bother courting Hispanic voters because their “illegitimate” children, “high rates of welfare use,” and opposition to “reducing the size of government” make them an “an overwhelmingly Democratic voter group.” Krikorian is one of the most prominent figures in the effort to stop comprehensive immigration reform. He was invited to be a GOP witness at a Senate hearing... MORE

Jerry Newcombe of Truth In Action Ministries is upset that ex-gay leader John Paulk has renounced the movement and announced that his marriage to his wife is ending. While Newcombe didn’t explicitly name Paulk, the former poster boy of the ex-gay movement made news recently for recanting his past activism. Newcombe said that Paulk is like an “ex-ex-smoker” who “for whatever reason, they lit up again, and they no longer try to fight these urges,” adding that the rejection of the ex-gay movement is nothing short of “blasphemy.” Well, it’s...
