Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver appeared on “Crosstalk” on Monday to reflect on the upcoming anniversary of the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, declaring that same-sex marriage will usher in pernicious consequences for America. Staver, who gained notoriety for representing Kentucky clerk Kim Davis during her attempt to defy the ruling, compared gay rights advocates to communist dictators who sought to suppress religious groups, predicting that Davis “is not going to be the last one jailed.” Same-sex marriage, Staver said, “puts every...

All this week on his "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver has been interviewing ex-gay activist Janet Boynes, who today recommended that Christian parents never allow their gay child to bring their partner or spouse into their home, warning that acceptance of such relationships is a sign of the "Last Days." Boynes said that parents should never cave and allow their children to bring a same-sex partner home for Christmas or Thanksgiving or to a family wedding because "anything outside of a man and a woman is a civil union."

As Miranda reported yesterday, Moore’s backers are holding a rally on Saturday to support his defiance of the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling. In a direct mail letter, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver warns that Moore and other Christian leaders “are facing intense backlash... MORE >

In a press release today, the conservative legal group Liberty Counsel took credit for a bill that passed the Oklahoma legislature yesterday that would make it a felony to perform abortions in the state. The group also claims that Paul Blair, a far-right Oklahoma pastor and activist who was embraced by Ted Cruz’s failed presidential campaign, “initiated” the legislation. “SB 1552 was authored by Sen. Nathan Dahm,” the press release says. “Yet this legislation was initiated by a local pastor, Paul Blair, with the support and guidance of Liberty Counsel... MORE >

Our friends at the Southern Poverty Law Center have obtained a copy of the 2014 membership list of the Council for National Policy, a secretive group led by the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins that includes a who’s who of leaders of the Religious Right and the wider conservative movement who work together to influence national politics. (In 2014, Perkins was the group’s vice president.) We’ve known from news reports that CNP’s membership includes a wide range of Religious Right leaders, but one name on the list obtained by SPLC stood out: Michael... MORE >

As head of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Samuel Rodriguez has worked to get more Latino voters, especially evangelicals, to back conservative candidates, while at the same time trying to get Republicans to stop trash-talking Latino immigrants and back immigration reform. But it appears that Rodriguez has thrown his lot in with Donald Trump, the very candidate who kicked off his campaign by trash-talking Latino immigrants and calling for mass deportations. While he may be an outspoken advocate of immigration reform, when push comes to shove, as it has with Trump’... MORE >

On Wednesday, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel appeared on VCY America’s “Crosstalk” to discuss new advances in transgender rights and the recent suspension of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, a client of Staver’s who is facing ethics charges for flouting federal court rulings on marriage equality. Staver said that he and Moore are engaged in “spiritual warfare” against demonic forces, and urged listeners to contact Alabama officials to defend Moore. He then went after the Obama administration’s “ridiculous” challenge to North Carolina’... MORE >

On Friday, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was suspended from his position after being charged with violating judicial ethics in his response to federal court rulings on same-sex marriage. Despite a ruling by a federal judge in Mobile making same-sex marriage legal in Alabama last year, and in the face of a United States Supreme Court ruling last year making its legality the law of the land, Moore instructed probate judges throughout Alabama to ignore those higher courts and to refuse to issue licenses to same-sex couples. Moore's actions led the Southern Poverty Law Center to file... MORE >
