Liberty Counsel’s Harry Mihet appeared this week on VCY America’s flagship radio program Crosstalk to discuss with host Jim Schneider the New Jersey law barring the practice of ex-gay therapy on minors. Mihet’s group has filed a lawsuit to block the law, and he told Schneider that the law is really an attack on Christianity.
Mihet quoted Romans 1:32 about people who gave “hearty approval” to those who are “worthy of death,” saying that “we live in Romans 1:32 times and Gov. Chris Christie perfectly encapsulated the substance of this verse.... MORE

The Washington Times editorial board baselessly claims this week that “many liberals who not so long ago derided anyone who questioned President Obama’s American birth as a ‘birther’ are asking similar questions now about Mr. Cruz’s eligibility.” The paper fails to name any prominent liberals who have actually made this argument.
In yesterday’s editorial, subtitled “Now a new version of ‘birtherism’ settles on the left,” the Times echoes Sean Hannity’s attack on imaginary liberal questioners of the Canadian-born Cruz... MORE

Earlier this month, a recording was leaked in which San Antonio Councilwoman Elisa Chan could be heard railing against a proposed anti-discrimination ordinance and gays in general. There has understandably been an outcry over her comments, such as her statement that homosexuals are "disgusting," but Chan is refusing to apologize ... and, for that, she is being praised by Bryan Fischer.
Fischer said on his radio program yesterday that Chan has nothing for which she needs to apologize because everything she said are "things that anybody who is thinking rightly and clearly... MORE

Liberty Counsel has officially filed suit against New Jersey's new law banning "ex-gay" therapy for minors. San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is reportedly finally ready to resign from office. A decade after the fact, Roy Moore stands by his decision to place a Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the state Supreme Court. Apparently, "Cory Booker supports abortion killing, or womb lynching." Glenn Beck continues to compare the United States to the fall of the Roman Empire. Finally, Bryan Fischer says it's "almost as if black victims of... MORE

Bryan Fischer is incensed at the New Mexico Supreme Court’s unanimous decision that a wedding photography business violated the state’s anti-discrimination law by refusing its services to a same-sex couple. The American Family Association spokesman called on the business, and others, to file countersuits and “fight fire with fire” by alleging that preventing them from discriminating against customers is religious discrimination.
“Essentially what this court has done and what the Obama administration has done with this abortifacient mandate is that they have... MORE

As the Atlantic’s Molly Ball reported yesterday, the anti-immigrant movement’s attempts to rile up its supporters in opposition to the Senate’s immigration proposal this summer have been largely an embarrassing bust.
The anti-immigrant group ALIPAC stepped up yesterday and took its members to task, sending out an email with the subject line “Uh Oh, Illegals Got the Best of Us Yesterday :(“
The group had sent out an appeal asking its members to send a message of support to Tennessee Republican Rep. Scott DesJarlais, who gained notoriety over the weekend for... MORE

Tom Minnery , head of Focus on the Family’s political arm CitizenLink, criticized Gov. Chris Christie for signing a bill barring the practice of ex-gay therapy on minors. He told Stuart Shepard that ex-gay therapy is “common and there is a history of them working well, many people have lost their confusion about sexuality as a result of them to the good.”
Minnery also feared the society is making kids think they are gay when they are not, increasing the need for the discredited pseudo-scientific practice: “As society prides itself on putting homosexuality on a pedestal... MORE

For the last several days, Glenn Beck and his The Blaze network have been heavily focused on the plight of Coptic Christians in Egypt, culminating in a segment on his radio program today in which Beck grew increasingly emotional as he declared that the Nazis have returned, just as he predicted.
"It is the Night of Broken Glass," Beck said, "the Nazis are here. They have finally walked through that door. When I was comparing people to Nazis in the Muslim Brotherhood and everybody said 'oh no, they're not Nazis,' well now you can see that they are!"
Beck went on... MORE

On a recent episode of the Talk to Solomon Show, Gun Owners of America executive director and actual influential person Larry Pratt played a sort of conspiracy-theory Mad Libs with host Stan Solomon, which resulted in the conclusion that Obamacare will force gun owners to undergo electro-shock therapy against their wills.
Solomon started off the conversation by reading from a Fort Myers, Florida News-Press story about a surge of people with severe depression or bipolar disorder seeking out electro-shock therapy treatment from a local hospital. He took this and ran with it, predicting that the... MORE
