Frank Graffney says the terrorist attacks in Norway demonstrates the urgency to fight…you guessed it, Sharia law. Live Prayer’s Bill Keller says that while a Christian who commits acts of violence is an apostate, “a Muslim commits acts of terror, killing innocent people, they are simply following the teachings of their false religion.” Conservatives defend Herman Cain for saying communities can ban mosques; claim states' rights trump freedom of religion. Meanwhile, Cain is skipping an interview with Stephen Colbert. Michael Brown, author... MORE >

The American Family Association today announced that more traditionally pro-GOP Religious Right organizations are joining them in hosting The Response prayer rally with Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Kyle reported that Focus on the Family founder James Dobson is on board, and now Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America have been named co-chairmen. Even though Perry and the AFA are adamant that the prayer rally is apolitical, the fact that leaders of three of the most prominent Religious Right political groups in the country are hosting the event...

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.
