In an interview on VCY America's Crosstalk yesterday, Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver criticized President Obama for being “very pro-homosexual” and “pro-Muslim,” and “doing more harm to our foundational, fundamental values than any president in American history.” Asked by host Jim Schneider about the “really troubling” decision to invite the Dalai Lama to give an opening prayer at the Senate yesterday, Staver responded that the Dalai Lama's presence in the Senate and the choice of Rajiv Shah, a Hindu USAID official, to deliver an...

Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber is not pleased with a recent compromise between the American Conservative Union and GOProud over the gay conservative group’s participation at CPAC. Speaking with Janet Mefferd yesterday, Barber said that he “led the charge on the boycott of CPAC” back when GOProud was allowed to partake in the conference. “Conservatism does not embrace, endorse and affirm homosexual behavior, homosexual sin,” Barber said. “There is nothing conservative about sodomy.” Barber also criticized conservative blogger Ed Morrissey for his...

Last week, Liberty Counsel launched a campaign calling upon Congress to impeach President Obama because he has supposedly committed multiple "high crimes and misdemeanors." But it turned out that the particular crimes that Liberty Counsel had in mind were not very specific, but rather consisted mostly of "whatever Congress says it is at any given time." On yesterday's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Matt Barber and Mat Staver continued to make their vague case for Obama's impeachment by blaming him for creating a culture of "lawlessness" in...

A federal judge’s decision to strike down Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriagehas unsurprisingly stoked the ire of conservatives. Family Research Council head Tony Perkins offered a typical rebuke of “activist judges” and the “arrogant judiciary,” and once again warned that marriage equality will in fact lead to unprecedented inequality. It appears that we have yet another example of an arrogant judge substituting her personal preferences for the judgment of the General Assembly and 57 percent of Virginia voters. Our nation's judicial system has been... MORE >

As Kyle noted yesterday, Liberty Counsel is out with two new amicus briefs defending same-sex marriage bans in Utah and Oklahoma, in which they argue that "while same-sex couples can enter a union of the wills, it is not possible for them to join in body in the way true marriage has always required." Liberty Counsel filed one of its briefs on behalf of the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), a group that pushes "ex-gay” therapy for LGBT people. The other, filed in Liberty Counsel’s own name [pdf], features many of the group... MORE >
Barber & Staver: Impeach Obama Because 'High Crimes And Misdemeanors' Means Whatever We Want It To Mean

As Brian noted yesterday, Liberty Counsel has now launched a campaign urging the House of Representatives to file articles of impeachment against President Obama for having supposedly committed multiple high crimes and misdemeanors. What exactly those "high crimes and misdemeanors" are is kind of hard to say but it doesn't really matter apparently because, as Mat Staver and Matt Barber explained on a recent "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, "high crimes and misdemeanors" means basically whatever Congress says it means at any given time: Staver: The...

Liberty Counsel opposes gay marriage because "while same-sex couples can enter a union of the wills, it is not possible for them to join in body in the way true marriage has always required." Michael Youssef warns that "the subtler persecution of Christians in America, which began mildly, with the media mocking Jimmy Carter’s 'born again' claim, has escalated rapidly in the last five years." Glenn Beck appears not to know the difference between the smallpox virus and the smallpox vaccine. Mychal Massie calls for conservatives to leave... MORE >

Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver has unveiled a new campaign calling on the House of Representatives to initiate the impeachment process against President Obama. The Religious Right group, which is the legal and advocacy arm of Liberty University, claims that Obama is more tyrannical and oppressive than King George III and must be stopped. We, the People of the United States of America, demand that the United States House of Representatives draft Articles of Impeachment against President Barack H. Obama for failure to adhere to the authority and rule of law, and for open oppression of... MORE >
