"Coach" Dave Daubenmire is quite proud of being a "right-wing wacko" and being featured on this blog. This is the spectacle with which Glenn Beck is going to forever change the Fourth of July? Of course, Muslim terrorists were responsible for the Colorado wildfires. Rick Santorum is now the head of a Christian movie studio. Seriously. On tomorrow's radio program, Focus on the Family president Jim Daly will interview U2's Bono. Finally, Steve Deace says "We don't need an Islamist invasion. Our elites are doing a great job of...

Stan Solomon interviewed antifeminist icon Phyllis Schlafly last week to rail against the women’s movement. When Schlafly repeated her claim that feminists “control the Obama administration,” it gave Solomon the opportunity to go one step further: “Barack Obama is a wussy guy who throws a ball like a girl, who everyone knows was involved in homosexuality and I think he is the stereotypical—if he could get away with it he’d be in drag. I don’t think he’s a man at all and he leads a whole group of men that are that way.” Schlafly, whose son... MORE

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) chatted with Steve Deace last week where he applauded Deace’s column, in which he calls immigration activists “bratty” and “entitled.” The congressman agreed with Deace’s claim about immigrants’ “sense of entitlement” and wondered if it comes from “the false allegation that somebody took the southwest away from them and now they are getting it back in better condition than they left it.” King, who earlier this month tweeted that “20 brazen self professed illegal aliens have just invaded my DC office...

Anti-gay talk show host Steve Deace is still reeling about Jason Collins’ decision to come out of the closet, and on the Friday edition of his radio program, even fantasized about assaulting him. Collins had been engaged to a woman when he was closeted and while his former fiancée Carolyn Moos said that she was “shocked” by his announcement, she hopes Collins can be “happy” and “stay true to who he really is, inside and out.” But Deace had a much uglier response, saying that if was her father, it would be a good thing we “have a waiting period...

On today's episode of "WallBuilders Live," David Barton and Rick Green were joined by Rep. Louie Gohmert for a discussion about the dangers posed by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the organization's "indoctrination" of students. Predictably, Green, Barton, and Gohmet all repeated the absurd right-wing talking point that the SPLC has been "linked to domestic terrorism," but Gohmert seemed primarily dismayed by the idea that kids might be learning about sex. Kids don't need to learn about these things, Gohmert insisted, because "mankind has... MORE

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins joined MassResistance president Brian Camenker in condemning the Boston Red Sox for hosting a “Pride Night,” which included Jason Collins throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Red Sox fans gave Collins a standing ovation, despite Perkins’ erroneous claim that “most parents object to” gay rights. Perkins quoted Camenker in calling homosexuality “destructive” and called on fans to tell the franchise not to “bombard families with a controversial message.” This month, the Red Sox are... MORE

In December, Liberty Counsel head Mat Staver told conservative radio host Janet Parshall that a Supreme Court ruling favorable to marriage equality “could cause another civil war” or even a second revolution. While speaking to Parshall last week, Staver argued that the court’s decision would have “a catastrophic consequence” for freedom, liberty and even “human existence” itself. The Liberty University law school dean, who said that Obama will introduce “forced homosexuality,” went on to say that the Supreme Court’s decision could... MORE

Last week, the Frederick Douglass Society hosted a Junteenth Celebration in Michigan at which Gary Glenn of the American Family Association spoke. During his remarks, Glenn declared that the Republican Party had been formed for the express purpose of fighting slavery and defending marriage, which inspired him tie Martin Luther King's famous "Letter from Birmingham Jail" to the forthcoming Supreme Court decisions on marriage equality by calling on Christians and the governors of the states which have outlawed gay marriage to ignore any ruling that might strike down those laws....

Christian Action League head Mark Creech is mourning the collapse of the ex-gay group Exodus International today in the Christian Post, arguing that Christians should not believe that sexual orientation exists as it is merely “a broad term developed in modern times to provide credence for the growing number of sexual perversions.” Creech urged people to dismiss claims from gay people who believe that their orientation was shaped by biological factors, just as they would refuse to affirm a person who thinks they are really a squirrel: “if one felt that he or she was a...

Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union today penned an “if I were the devil” column, inspired by radio commentator Paul Harvey. As you probably already guessed, he claims Satan is pushing marriage equality to attack religious people, convinced the Boy Scouts to “commit suicide” by including openly gay scouts and expanded healthcare access through Obamacare. Knight, while writing for the Unification Church-tied Washington Times, called the Episcopal Church a “subsidiary” of the Devil and claimed the government is becoming a Satanic tool to... MORE
