It is amazing to see anti-gay activists keep attributing language found in Justice Scalia's DOMA dissent to Justice Kennedy's majority opinion. Does anyone care what Todd Starnes thought of last night's Video Music Awards? Of course not.  But he wrote about it anyway. Wait, Trump University was a total scam? Who would have guessed. Robert Knight thinks that the movie "Lincoln" was "a clever way to justify the ruthlessly partisan enactment of Obamacare." In case you need them, here are "The Dos and Don'ts of Fashion as a... MORE

March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The original march’s focus on economic justice issues through a national minimum wage and jobs program would be lost on a party that today consistently opposes aid to low-income Americans and whose last presidential nominee proudly stated that he is “not concerned about the very poor.” While Bob Woodson of the Center for Neighborhood Enterprises, a speaker at today’s event, lamented that low-income African Americans are being ignored in today’s politics, he blamed their plight on gay people, immigrants, women and...

Christopher Doyle, who organized the disastrous Ex-Gay Pride Month and the upcoming Ex-Gay Awareness Month, believes that Exodus International should apologize to ex-gay activists like himself for shutting down and renouncing sexual orientation conversion therapy. The ex-gay ministry recently closed its doors as its former leader Alan Chambers apologized to the gay community and admitted that ex-gay therapy doesn’t work. Doyle, of Richard Cohen’s International Healing Foundation and a new ex-gay group Voice of the Voiceless, accused Chambers of “throwing some ex-gay leaders... MORE

On his radio broadcast this afternoon, Bryan Fischer delivered a vigorous defense of Russia's anti-gay "propaganda" law, saying that, if anything, it doesn't go far enough. Fischer commended Russia for trying to reestablish their Christian heritage and for understanding that "homosexual behavior is a moral evil."  Fischer lamented that, for now the law only bans the spread of homosexual propaganda to teenagers, but remains hopeful that Russia will eventually realize that homosexuality is a "moral evil" for everyone. Even still, Fischer said, "at... MORE

UPDATED Daniel Hernandez Jr., the former intern credited with helping to save Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ life when she was shot in 2011 and now an elected member of a Tucson-area school board, is facing a nasty recall election in which anonymous opponents are attacking him for being openly gay and for his advocacy on behalf of gun violence prevention. The story behind the recall is the kind of byzantine saga found only in local politics. Four of the five members of the Sunnyside Unified School District, which includes parts of Tucson and surrounding areas, are now facing recall petitions... MORE

Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America seems convinced that the Obama administration will launch some sort of anti-Christian, anti-white race war any day now, and told talk show host Stan Solomon that the Department of Homeland Security considers the American people to be “the enemy.” After Solomon brought up a 2009 FBI memo about a surge in activity among “white supremacy extremist and militia/sovereign-citizen extremist groups,” and the FBI mentioned that it would work with the Defense Department to share information “related only to veterans who draw the...

Despite the fact that authorities are saying that race did not play a role in the shooting death of Christopher Lane or the beating that killed World War II vet Delbert Belton, commentators on the right are absolutely convinced that it did. As such, "AFA Today" broadcast host Kevin McCullough blasted President Obama on Friday for failing to speak out about either crime, which apparently proves that Obama is racist and a "flaming hypocrite": Please Mr. Obama, explain to me your silence, explain to me your deafness to the cries of people that genuinely hurt. What's... MORE

Steve Sailer, columnist for the white nationalist site VDARE and inspiration to conservative leaders including Pat Buchanan and Phyllis Schlafly, commemorates the anniversary of the March on Washington this week by suggesting that President Obama use the occasion to “declare victory in the long war on Jim Crow and white racism.” But Sailer doesn’t do a great job backing up his point, as he launches straight into another suggestion for the president: eliminate the “racial divisiveness” of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday by moving it to August…unless...

Pat Robertson’s 700 Club today featured the story of Debra Gauthier, a Nevada police officer who “bought the lie” about homosexuality until she became a Christian and renounced her identity as a lesbian. Gauthier explained that she regretted her “choice” to be a lesbian because “there was a lot of inner turmoil going on, there was something about that that is not right, it’s not natural.” Gauthier writes in her book, Bright Lights, Dark Places, that she became attracted to men after attending an Exodus International conference. Gauthier claims... MORE

In an interview with Janet Mefferd Friday, the chief advocate of Oklahoma’s Sharia law ban lashed out at federal judge Vicki Miles LaGrange for her ruling striking down the 2010 amendment. Rex Duncan, a former Republican state representative and now a district attorney, told Mefferd that the judge, who is African American, was upset by the prohibition on any “special treatment for a minority ideology or religion” because of her past support for “preferential treatment for minorities.” “She just went out of her way to side with the minorities and make up a...
