SUBMITTED BY: Miranda Blue, Monday 06/30/2014, 11:56am
The Religious Right’s reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case — in which the Court’s conservative majority ruled that some for-profit businesses must be exempt from the Affordable Care Act’s contraception coverage mandate — has started rolling in. Erick Erickson sees the decision as a victory over the promiscuous: My religion trumps your “right” to employer subsidized consequence free sex. — Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) June 30, 2014 Eric Metaxas thinks King George III would have been on the side of...

Denunciations of today’s court rulings striking down marriage equality bans in Indiana and Utah are beginning to trickle in from anti-gay activists, with the two cases representing additional defeats for an already struggling movement. Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council — ignoring the fact that one of the Tenth Circuit Court judges who ruled in favor of marriage equality was recommended by Sen. Jim Inhofe and appointed by George W. Bush — blamed the rulings on the Obama administration and leftists who have been “packing the federal courts with liberal jurists... MORE >
Congressman Debunks Tony Perkins' Claim That The Obama Administration Refuses To Help Imprisoned Christian In Sudan

Over the past several weeks, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council has relentlessly criticized the Obama administration’s handling of the imprisonment of Meriam Ibrahim, a Sudanese woman who is married to a U.S. citizen. Ibrahim, a Christian, was put on death row in Sudan for apostasy. She was recently released from jail after an appeals court voided her conviction, but according to reports today she has been rearrested while attempting to leave the country. It is no surprise that Perkins has used the shocking human rights violation as an excuse to attack the Obama administration... MORE >

The Family Research Council is once again responding to polls showing widespread support for gay rights by making up their own anti-gay fuzzy math. In his daily email update on Friday, FRC President Tony Perkins wrote that the Republican House leaders who oppose the Employment Non-Discrimination Act are “more in line with the majority of Americans” than is President Obama, who supports the act. Perkins cited a Huffington Post poll, which he says found that “only 50% of Americans support an ENDA-type” law, which he claims “gives preference to homosexuals and... MORE >

SUBMITTED BY: Brian Tashman, Thursday 06/19/2014, 11:20am
Family Research Council senior fellow Peter Sprigg, who once advocated for the deportation of gay people from the U.S. to stop them from destroying society, fielded a call on the “Washington Watch” radio program yesterday from a listener named Janet, who recounted a heart wrenching story of her daughter coming out as gay. Janet explained to Sprigg how she still supports her daughter and is sustained by her faith in Jesus Christ. I want you to understand that I am a Christian, I do believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, but I do have a quandary. I have a daughter who has... MORE >

Earlier this year, Christian author Matthew Vines published a book entitled “God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships.” Vines’ book so angered Religious Right leaders like Matt Barber that its publisher was pushed out of the National Religious Broadcasters. The Southern Baptist Convention rushed out an e-book: “God and the Gay Christian? A response to Matthew Vines.” Today the Family Research Council continued the barrage against the very idea that committed, loving gay relationships might be acceptable in the sight... MORE >

Operation American Spring. Truckers Ride for the Constitution. Reclaim America Now. All were right-wing efforts to literally overthrow President Obama. None of them exactly worked. In 2012, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins similarly warned of an anti-government uprising if the Supreme Court were to strike down bans on same-sex marriage. “I think that could be the straw that broke the camel’s back,” he said, warning that such a ruling would mean “you could have a revolt, a revolution, I think you can see Americans saying ‘enough of this’ and I...
