Mike Huckabee will be ending his daily three hour radio program in early December. The US is moving its Vatican embassy, so we can probably expect to hear lots of Religious Right leaders screaming about how this is more evidence of President Obama hates Christianity or something. Peter LaBarbera says that no matter how widespread marriage equality becomes, "it has nothing to do with our Judeo-Christian tradition, so this is not marriage and we cannot pretend that this is marriage." A conservative polling firm claims that "Christian conservative activist Bob... MORE

On the 700 Club today, Pat Robertson got to talking with the American Center for Law and Justice’s Jay Sekulow about President Obama’s three nominees to the D.C. Circuit Court. Although Robertson was concerned that there might be a “feminist”among them, Sekulow said he had no problem with the nominees themselves and instead repeated the GOP’s flimsy argument that President Obama’s nominating people to judicial vacancies constitutes “court-packing.”
Sekulow went out of his way to sing the praises of one of the three nominees, Patricia Millett,... MORE

On today’s 700 Club, Pat Robertson defended a viewer who told him that she asked a neighbor who was staying with her to leave her house after finding out he was a Muslim. “Kimberly” said that after she took in a neighbor who was kicked out of his house by his father, she “felt an evil presence while cooking in my kitchen” and “heard him praying to Allah in my home.” She asked Robertson if she undermined Jesus’ teaching that “just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me” by asking the neighbor to...

Earlier this year, "nine musical artists of different styles, backgrounds, and faiths were invited by Glenn Beck to compose, arrange, and record as a unit" to create a Christmas album called "Believe Again."
On his radio broadcast today, Beck spent a large part of the program promoting the new album during which he read from an insanely grandiose letter that he wrote to those involved in the project in which he predicted that their efforts just might save America and the world from the "spiritual darkness" that is engulfing it.
"Freedom is slipping through... MORE

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality head Peter LaBarbera wishes you a very happy Thanksgiving, even though gay rights advocates want to ruin it by saying that they’re thankful for the gains in the movement for LGBT equality.
“Now homosexuality advocates (and others) have taken this regrettable phenomenon a step further: using Thanksgiving as an opportunity to be ‘thankful for’ developments that are decidedly ungodly – e.g., the advance of out-and-proud homosexualism,” LaBarbera laments. “How insidious is the ‘Progressive’ Left’s...

On the heels of Rick Santorum's flop as a movie mogul, it looks like the professional anti-gay activists over at Liberty Counsel have been bitten by the acting bug and decided to try their hands at filmmaking as well, with the release of a feature film called "Uncommon" starring none other than Erik Estrada:
Liberty Counsel released the trailer to its first feature film, Uncommon. The film about religious liberty in public school stars Erik Estrada (CHiP's), Ben Davies (Courageous), Irma P. Hall (Soul Food), and Grammy Award-winning Christian Musician Jason Crabb.

Alex Jones hailed The Hunger Games yesterday for exposing “the deepest dream of the New World Order” that shows the looming “end of humanity, the end of freedom.” Jones dedicated a segment of his show to explaining that “we are living in The Hunger Games” thanks to Agenda 21, a nonbinding United Nations blueprint on sustainable development: “We are already living in this and this is Agenda 21.”
“This is all coming true, this is all happening, this is actually the Agenda 21 exact plan,” Jones said. “This woman [Suzanne Collins]... MORE

Mark Driscoll, a right-wing megachurch pastor best known for his chauvinistic, bullying, anti-gay and domineering preaching style, is facing charges of plagiarism from his fellow conservatives. When talk show host Janet Mefferd confronted him about the plagiarism claims in an interview last week, Driscoll was offended that Mefferd dared to ask him such questions and told her that she was “grumpy,” “rude” and “not very Christ-like.”
He patted himself on the back for being “gracious and humble” through it all, adding that he couldn’t... MORE

In an article emailed to Tea Party Nation members on Monday, Lloyd Marcus, an activist, songwriter, and self-described “(black) Unhyphenated American” sings the praises of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, whom he compares to Martin Luther King, Jr., Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, and accuses Cruz’s “establishment” critics of being no better than Don Corleone.
Marcus’ most colorful analogy is between Cruz and Jefferson, whom Marcus insists “demanded total repeal” of slavery, just like Cruz is demanding the repeal of Obamacare. “Like Jefferson... MORE
