Ralph Reed Thinks Elected Officials Should 'Do Your Job,' But Apparently That Doesn't Apply To Senate Republicans

Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition has released an ad attacking North Carolina Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Roy Cooper for his refusal to defend the state's recently enacted anti-LGBT law, HB2. Insisting that the only goal of the law was to give people privacy in the restroom "just like it's always been," the ad declares that "Attorney General Roy Cooper should do his one job: Defend North Carolina." It's rather ironic that the FFC's ad would tell Cooper to "do your job," considering that #DoYourJob is exactly the... MORE >

With every passing day, Franklin Graham is sounding more and more like Bryan Fischer. Speaking of Fischer, his understanding of the First Amendment remains consistently incoherent. Mark Creech says that Donald Trump must seek God's forgiveness for his "support of gambling." Gov. Scott Walker's recently hired two staffers for his presidential campaign who both ran Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition at one point. Eugene Delgaudio says his Democratic opponents "want my demise" because they cite the SPLC's coverage of his long history... MORE >

Fox News pundit Todd Starnes spoke at the Faith and Freedom Conference last Saturday in order to warn his Christian comrades that a war is coming. Starnes argued that if “our Founding Fathers” could see “these Republicans campaigning as culture war conservatives but governing as godless Democrats” they would “start another revolution.” Standing before the audience to “sound a warning, an alarm,” Starnes claimed that “the American way of life is under attack” from an “active and aggressive war on religious liberty.”...

Last week the Washington Times published a glowing profile of David Lane, a GOP political operative and Christian-nation extremist. The article reported on Lane’s efforts to mobilize “an army” to lead the charge for his battle with “secularists.” Just days later, the Washington Times officially became part of David Lane’s recruitment effort, launching a petition campaign co-sponsored and co-branded with Lane’s American Renewal Project. According to the campaign’s website, “The Washington Times has agreed to deliver the petition to the... MORE >

Rabbi Daniel Lapin was among the speakers today at Ralph Reed's "Road To Majority Conference," where he declared that "secular fundamentalism" has become an "official state religion" and that, just like Islam, it is seeking to "obliterate" Christianity from American society. "The only form of sex that the official state religion of secular fundamentalism despises is the sex described as ideal in God's book, the Bible," Lapin said. "All other forms of sex [are] highly desirable and indeed brave and courageous to practice, but what... MORE >

The Washington Times has long been a right-wing propaganda vehicle in the guise of a newspaper. Its pages have been a home to birtherism, anti-gay and anti-Muslim rhetoric, and assorted Obama conspiracy theories. So it was not exactly surprising to get an email from political operative Ralph Reed about a new partnership between the paper and his Faith and Freedom Coalition. I am very excited to share with you a valuable new partnership we have forged with The Washington Times! In addition to valuing the Times' conservative thought, leadership, and its trusted news coverage, we will now... MORE >

The Faith and Freedom Coalition, the Religious Right group led by disgraced right-wing lobbyist Ralph Reed, is holding its annual “Road to Majority” conference next week. Nearly every Republican presidential candidate has signed up for the event, and today, the FFC announced that Ohio Gov. John Kasich will be addressing the conservative summit. Kasich recently made waves by tapping John Weaver and Fred Davis, two veterans of John McCain’s 2008 campaign, to work for his increasingly likely campaign for president. The conference is cosponsored by radical right-wing groups such... MORE >
The Religious Right Reacts To SCOTUS Gay Marriage Decision: 'Unconscionable, Unconstitutional, And Un-American'

Earlier today, the Supreme Court refused to hear appeals from several states challenging court decisions striking down gay marriage bans, resulting in such marriages now being legal in several more states. To say that anti-gay Religious Right groups are furious with the Supreme Court would be a massive understatement and nobody was more livid about it than the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer, who spent two segments of his radio program today blasting the Supreme Court for having now issued the "de facto Roe vs. Wade of sodomy-based marriage" by "imposing on...
