I've written several posts already about the fact that Janet Porter had her radio program dropped by VCY America following her May Day 2010 prayer rally due to the Dominionist underpinnings of the event. That move has all but closed down Porter's Faith 2 Action organization and so Porter has spent a lot of her energy lately attacking Discernment Ministries as being responsible for getting her fired. But, as it turns out, it was not just VCY that dropped Porter's radio program - Worldview Weekend also terminated its relationship with her over her May Day prayer rally. On May 5... MORE >

On his radio program yesterday, the AFA 's Bryan Fischer weighed in on Gov. Mitch Daniels call for a "truce" in the culture war by quoting this passage from George Washington: Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace... MORE >

It is remarkable to watch as Janet Porter continues to lash out at Discernment Ministries and its blog Herescope ever since their work exposing her increasing ties to Dominion Theology lead VCY America to sever its ties with Porter and drop her radio program following her Dominion-focused prayer rally at the Lincoln Memorial on May Day. Last week, Porter used her WorldNetDaily column to launch an attack on Discernment, calling them "cultural Nazis" who are siding with the ACLU and throwing rocks from the sidelines at those, like Porter, who are trying to save America from...

Just yesterday I was wondering when, if ever, Janet Porter was going to return to action, having seemingly ceased operations since her radio program was dropped by VCY America due to her increasing involvement with Dominion Theology. Today, we got our answer. As we noted shortly after Porter was dropped by VCY, VCY's flagship program "Crosstalk" dedicated its show to discussing the alarming rise of Dominionism among the Religious Right with guest Sarah Leslie, who is an an author, researcher, and member of the board of directors of Discernment Ministries. It was... MORE >

Americans used to be free. Then we elected President Obama and now we are just "mostly free." Oklahoma's attempt to opt out of federal hate crimes law has been killed in committee. Even Sen. Tom Coburn knows that you can't believe everything what you hear on Fox News. David Weigel is now blogging for the Washington Post. Things are not looking good for Sen. John Ensign, who seems to be wildly unpopular with just about everyone who knows him. "Homosexuality, Is It A Problem In Need Of A Cure?" Um, no. You're welcome, CNN. Do not be... MORE >

Bill O'Reilly has offered to pay the cover $16,500 in legal costs for the father of a fallen U.S. Marine who sued Westboro Baptist Church for picketing his son's funeral. PFOX is now targeting Pepsi. Molotov Mitchell once again defends Uganda's "kill the gays" bill. Harry Jackson's astroturf "Stop the War on the Poor" effort is back, but now known as the Affordable Power Alliance. Gary Bauer says "there just can be no doubt here that this is the most anti-Israel president of the United States that we have seen in the history of our country... MORE >

Last week, President Obama nominated Goodwin Liu to a seat on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and immediately Ed Whelan of the Ethics and Public Policy Center started attacked Liu through a series of Bench Memos posts, accusing him of engaging in "demagogic testimony against Justice Alito’s confirmation" and adhering "the living-constitutionalist gimmick that judges can redefine the Constitution to mean whatever they want it to mean." That was followed by a post claiming that the American Bar Association's rating of Liu as "well qualified" was "a... MORE >

Earlier this week it was reported that, back in January, a teacher at Roberto Clemente Middle School in Germantown, Maryland had publicly reprimanded a student who refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and even called the school's security officer to escort the student to the counselor's office when she continued to refuse. This, despite that fact that the "Supreme Court ruled in 1943 that students cannot be forced to salute the flag [and] Maryland law explicitly allows any student or teacher to be excused from participating in the pledge." The ACLU got involved... MORE >
