Conservative columnist Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union is offended that “our Muslim enemies falsely describe” America as the “world’s Great Satan,” but he agrees that we are certainly on our way to becoming just that. “We might consider asking our ruling elites in Hollywood, New York and Washington to give the mullahs less evidence for that claim,” he writes in the Washington Times. The ACRU senior fellow alleges that America’s “ever-coarsening, ‘progressive’ popular culture and the ruling elites” are... MORE >

The American Civil Rights Union’s Robert Knight, who has been encouraging Republicans to run on social issues such as hostility to abortion rights and opposition to LGBT equality, now thinks the GOP should campaign on denying the existence of evolution. Citing a Pew poll which shows that belief in evolution has plummeted in the GOP and is now shared by only a minority of Republicans, Knight told the American Family Association’s One News Now that “Republicans have a great opportunity” to expose the “lies that liberals have told over the years” and begin...

American Civil Rights Union fellow Robert Knight has a column in the Washington Times today blasting President Obama and the American Civil Liberties Union for acting like Soviet commissar trying to extinguish religious liberty. Knight cites an upcoming Supreme Court case surrounding the town of Greece, New York, in which two non-Christian residents sued the town for exclusively inviting Christian pastors to open council meetings in prayer. The residents claimed that the town violated the establishment clause and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals agreed. But that is an interesting case for... MORE >

The American Civil Rights Union’s Robert Knight is calling for Southern California to secede from the rest of the state over marriage equality. Falsely claiming that same-sex marriages are only allowed in the northern part of the state, Knight writes that Southern Californians now have “more incentive to push secession.” He goes on to warn that the American Civil Liberties Union is “proclaiming jihad” against states that ban same-sex marriage and will receive assistance from “ruling elites, who are determined to refashion America into an updated version of...

Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union today penned an “if I were the devil” column, inspired by radio commentator Paul Harvey. As you probably already guessed, he claims Satan is pushing marriage equality to attack religious people, convinced the Boy Scouts to “commit suicide” by including openly gay scouts and expanded healthcare access through Obamacare. Knight, while writing for the Unification Church-tied Washington Times, called the Episcopal Church a “subsidiary” of the Devil and claimed the government is becoming a Satanic tool to... MORE >

With Religious Right activists increasingly torn over the debate on immigration reform, American Civil Rights Union senior fellow and Washington Times columnist Robert Knight is warning Republicans of grave consequences if they support the bipartisan Senate bill. He claims that offering a pathway to citizenship for “unregistered Democrats” means that the GOP will commit “political suicide”: “flooding America with millions more people who have no understanding of constitutional, limited government is a fast track to dependency, one-party rule and socialism....

The lesson of the Jason Collins story, according to Religious Right activists, is that true courage is found in attacking gay people… since not enough people are doing it these days. In his daily radio bulletin, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council contended that Chris Broussard, the sportscaster who claimed that Jason Collins was rebelling against God, showed “real courage,” unlike Collins…because no one criticized him for being gay, except for Broussard (and many, many, many others). Jason Collins doesn't play for the Trailblazers, but he's being... MORE >
