Peter LaBarbera is still very upset with Glenn Beck. The Family Research Council is very happy with the Ninth Circuit. Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition continues to train activists all over the country. Mike Huckabee says it is just common sense that Park 51 ought to be moved. Two blocks is too close to Ground Zero for a mosque, and a half-mile is apparently too close to Gettysburg for a casino. I don't even have to words necessary to adequately describe how awful this is. Finally, David Barton and Pat Robertson have an oddly incoherent... MORE >

Why is it that when Ralph Reed is involved, nothing can ever just be what it is? For instance, his new Faith and Freedom Coalition is not just a new Religious Right group, but rather the "Christian Coalition on Steroids." And Reed is not just another Religious Right operative, but the Religious Right's Steve Jobs. And Reed's works is not just standard voter mobilization, but rather guerilla warfare and saturation bombing. And so, of course, his upcoming Faith and Freedom Coalition Summit is not just a political conference, but "the political equivalent of NFL minicamp... MORE >

When I received email alerts yesterday from Wallbuilders, Renewing American Leadership, and the Faith and Freedom Coalition announcing that their respective leaders - David Barton, Jim Garlow, and Ralph Reed - were all going to appear on Glenn Beck last night, I knew something remarkable was going on. As it turned out, these men with also joined by several other Religious Right leaders, including NOM's Robert George and John Hagee (John Hagee!?): The discussion went pretty much as you would expect it would when a bunch of Religious Right leaders who are convinced that America was,...

It was just yesterday that I wrote a post about Mike Huckabee's ties to James Robison, a now rather obscure figure who, back in the 1980s, was a powerful Religious Right leader. In that post, I noted that Robison was still active and had recently had Jim Garlow on his program. Shortly after that post went up, some glitch on Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition website caused an old post to show up in my RSS reader and lo and behold it was video from last year of Reed appearing on Robison's show to pitch the need for his new organization on the grounds that "...

It was just one year ago that Ralph Reed announced the formation of his Faith and Freedom Coalition, a more hip, more strident "21st Century version of the Christian Coalition on steroids, married with MoveOn.org, with a sprinkling of the NRA." And slowly Reed has been working to build it into a brand new right-wing powerhouse, teaming up with leaders like Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee and Michele Bachmann and Richard Land and Rick Santorum while setting up affiliates in several states in order to train "Tea Partiers, home schoolers and other conservatives to give them the...

The Illinois Family Institute "needs to raise $80,000 to survive the summer." Rep. Michele Bachmann received the 2010 Conservative Leadership Award from the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute. An interesting look at the ties between Jay Sekulow, Deacon Keith Fournier, Rob and Paul Schenck, and the American Center for Law and Justice. Maggie Gallagher is not happy with the way the Prop 8 trial appears to be going. Janne Myrdal, State Director for CWA of North Dakota, is honored to be "one of those prayer warriors who provide [Sarah Palin's] prayer shield... MORE >

I think it is safe to assume that Ralph Reed's underhanded work exploiting his Religious Right allies for the benefit of Jack Abramoff's clients' gambling interests has been completely forgiven by various leaders of the very movement he sought to exploit. In recent weeks, Reed has used his Faith and Freedom Coalition to host meetings that included the likes of Richard Land and Rep. Marsha Blackburn and rub shoulders with Rep. Michele Bachmann, as he travels the country presenting his plans to gain control of House, Senate, and state legislatures though his new, more strident "... MORE >
