Earlier this month at A Gathering of Eagles, Cindy Jacobs, Harry Jackson, Dutch Sheets and Pierre Bynum of the Family Research Council led attendees in spiritual warfare against the purported demonic powers behind homosexuality and marriage equality, the media and secular government. Today, Jacobs’ organization Generals International told members about the event, including a meeting before the prayer rally at the Family Research Council including Jackson, Sheets and John Benefiel of the Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network as part of Jacobs’ new election initiative to elect right-...

Family Research Council Denounces Indiana License Plate for 'Promoting a Homosexual Recruitment Group'

As we reported last week, the American Family Association fiercely condemned Indiana’s bureau of motor vehicles for selling license plates where part of the proceeds will go towards the Indiana Youth Group’s efforts to provide safe spaces for LGBT youth and straight allies. Now, the Family Research Council is attacking Indiana over the move, with president Tony Perkins using his daily radio bulletin to blast the “special edition homosexual youth plate” and “promoting a homosexual recruitment group.” Perkins also seems to be generally disapproving of license...

American Family Association and Family Research Council Proud to Stand with Anal-Obsessed Pastor Patrick Wooden
SUBMITTED BY: Brian Tashman, Thursday 01/19/2012, 4:15pm
On Today’s Issues, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins hosted and praised North Carolina pastor and anti-gay activist Patrick Wooden, the very same pastor who said that gay men “have to wear a diaper or a butt plug just to be able to contain their bowels,” to condemn the Southern Poverty Law Center’s work against anti-gay organizations. Wooden has not only focused on “what happens to the male anus” but also said homosexuality is “wicked, deviant, immoral, self-destructive, anti-... MORE >

Religious Right leaders have long relied on bogus claims of anti-Christian persecution to energize their supporters – and they’ve cranked up the volume on those claims since Barack Obama’s election. But even by those amped-up standards, the latest direct mail piece from the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins is a roid-rage rant against the godless "forces of darkness" -- that would be the Obama administration -- who "seek to destroy" the country." This year promises to be one of challenges for Christians as the Obama administration... MORE >

Yesterday, North Carolina pastor Patrick Wooden appeared with right-wing activists Peter LaBarbera and Matt Barber at the protest against the Southern Poverty Law Center, which Wooden condemned for its support of LGBT rights. Prior to the demonstration, Wooden appeared on LaBarbera’s radio show where he railed against gays and lesbians and claimed that gay men “have to wear a diaper or a butt plug just to be able to contain their bowels”: Wooden: The God of the Bible made the human sperm, the God of the Bible designed it and it was not designed to be emptied into an area...

We have been reporting on last week’s Gathering of Eagles in Washington, D.C. where the Family Research Council teamed up with “Apostle” Cindy Jacobs to launch a prayer campaign designed to influence the 2012 elections. The event was vivid evidence of the Religious Right’s willingness to embrace the radical dominionists of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). The Family Research Council is probably the most prominent political group on the Religious Right; its Values Voter Summit attracts Republican presidential candidates, congressional leaders, and...

Anti-gay author Michael Brown spoke today at the Family Research Council event, “Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace.” His speech included the standard right-wing attacks against equal rights for the LGBT community as well as many plugs for his book, A Queer Thing Happened to America. Most of the speech focused on bemoaning the political gains made by gay rights advocates and growing societal acceptance for gay lesbian and transgender people. Brown even warned that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell made the military into a “massive pro-gay propaganda... MORE >

Family Research Council president hasn’t tried hard to downplay the apocalyptic rhetoric surrounding the presidential election in November coming from the Right, as he has called President Obama “the worst president this country has ever had” and warned that his administration “will destroy this country” if “given another four years” in office. On Tuesday’s edition of Truth that Transforms, Perkins warned that the upcoming election “doesn’t so much define our future but I would have to say determines whether or not we have a future...
