As we have noted before, actual historians tend to agree that David Barton is not a historian but rather a Religious Right activist who intentionally misrepresents history in order to promote his political agenda. And with every presentation he delivers, Barton just reinforces that fact. For instance, Focus on the Family ran a two-day broadcast last week featuring one of Barton's presentation in which he made the following assertion: You see, even in previous generations, we fully expected our military and our political leaders to be highly religious. You've probably seen lots of... MORE >

Christianity Today profiles Focus on the Family after the departure of James Dobson. The Family Research Council apparently does not see the irony. Al Mohler says given society's wide acceptance of gays, conservative Christians need to find ways to talk about the issue without looking like bigots. For some reason, Rep. Thaddeus McCotter is going to run for president. It seems Rep. Todd Akin doesn't really want to talk about his "liberals hate God" comment. MORE >

Newt Gingrich’s campaign continues to implode. Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel thinks People For the American Way and other members of the “intolerant left” are going to purge religion from the US. Focus on the Family is, ironically, upset that gays are political. Abby Johnson has signed on as a blogger for Life News, even though her story about leaving Planned Parenthood falls short of reality. Finally, the Family Research Council pleads that we pray against marriage equality in New York. MORE >

Herman Cain has managed to make Alan Keyes seem reasonable, so that is quite an accomplishment. Rep. Peter King will be holding a second round of hearings on "Muslim radicalization" next week. Focus on the Family responds to allegations that the organization has given up the fight against gay marriage. It looks like Liberty University will finally get a polling place on campus. Finally, Gary Cass is very upset that the White House issued a proclamation recognizing LGBT Pride Month: "Christians know God is not mocked. We refuse to affirm their... MORE >

A self-proclaimed “ex-gay” official with Focus on the Family’s California affiliate, in response to Los Angeles’s recognition of LGBT Heritage Month in June, has called on the city to create a day honoring “ex-gays.” The Focus chapter, called the California Family Council, earlier this year slammed anti-bullying initiatives for allegedly “push[ing] a homosexual message” and attacked efforts to incorporate gay and lesbian historical figures in the school curriculum. Speaking to the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow, Jim Domen,... MORE >

As we have been saying all along, Herman Cain's pants are on fire. Speaking of Cain, if he doesn't become president, some would like to see him run for governor in Georgia. Is a spat brewing between the Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin camps? Let's hope so. The Fairness Doctrine is dead ... but I don't expect that will stop the Religious Right's fear-mongering. Harry Jackson has launched some new group ... to do something. Finally, Focus on the Family claims its ultrasound program has stopped 100,000 abortions. MORE >
