During the last presidential election, a group of Religious Right millionaires formed an organization called United In Purpose with the intent of mobilizing "40 million out of the estimated 60 million evangelicals in the United States to vote" over the next ten years. The organization played a role in Gov. Rick Perry's "The Response" prayer rally and in organizing Religious Right mobilization conferences throughout the country ahead of the 2012 election through a project called Champion The Vote. Obviously, that election did not turn out as the group had hoped and the... MORE >

Senators and presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Ted Cruz will head to Iowa this week as featured speakers at a closed-door event for conservative pastors that has been organized by David Lane, an anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-Mormon, Christian-nation absolutist who has declared war, not only on secularism and separation of church and state, but also on establishment Republicans who don’t embrace his vision of an America in which the Bible serves as “the principle textbook” for public education and a “Christian culture” has been “re-established.” He...

The Religious Right took a drubbing at the polls yesterday as voters rejected not only Mitt Romney but also some of the most extreme Republican candidates, even those in races that should have been easy Republican victories. Like other conservatives, many Religious Right activists predicted a big victory for Romney and Republicans in the U.S. Senate based on five myths they hold about the electorate: Myth #1: Americans want a ‘True Conservative’ The Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody called the results a “nightmare for the GOP” and a “colossal...

Back in July, it was Mike Huckabee who birthed the idea for "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" to encourage people to patronize local Chick-fil-A restaurants to show support for the company amid the controversy over CEO Dan Cathy's anti-gay statements and "affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse." Now Huckabee is looking to recapture that magic with a new effort being promoted by Champion The Vote that seeks to mobilize the masses for the election in November: Over the last... MORE >

The goal of the effort is to utilize new technology to get "5 million unregistered conservative Christians to register and vote according to the Biblical worldview in 2012." Today, Champion The Vote's President and CEO, Bill Dallas, was the guest on "WallBuilders Live" where he and Rick Green discussed the importance of getting Christians registered to vote ... so that they can take back the culture and Dallas won't have to talk to his young...

Yesterday, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson appeared on a conference call with Champion the Vote, a nominally non-partisan group that focuses on mobilizing Religious Right voters. Dobson spent much of his time on the call criticizing the gay rights movement for disingenuously using the “human rights and anti-discrimination” message and the “‘live and let live’ concept” for advancing “homosexual adoption, homosexual marriage [and] requiring foster parents to attend classes so they can indoctrinate the foster kids that they have with the gay and...
