Erik Rush thinks that gays and lesbians should be wary of supporting progressive causes because he predicts that one day left-wing governments will outlaw homosexuality and begin to persecute gay people. Rush said on his radio show today that big-government leads to communism or Sharia law, systems that “do not tolerate homosexuality” since “they know countries or societies without a moral center don’t survive.” “What’s going to happen is the political left is going to turn around once they are done using these people and they are going to start...

One question we are often receive from readers and followers on Twitter or Facebook is how do we find the right-wing insanity on a daily basis to find the content posted on this blog.

Reflecting on his recent trip to Jamaica to defend the country’s ban on homosexuality, Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality said that homosexuality must remain a crime because otherwise gay people may — gasp! — organize politically and demand equality under the law. LaBarbera writes in an essay on his website that homosexuality acts like “an insatiable, devouring monster,” lamenting that “we in America have our own arrogant and vengeful ‘gay’ (LGBT) ‘monster in our midst.’” Folks, when I was in Jamaica I...

It is remarkable how, for the Religious Right, the First Amendment seems to mean they are allowed to say anything they want without receiving any criticism or suffering any consequences, but that appears to be the belief of everyone who is rushing to Phil Robertson's defense. MORE
