We are quite accustomed to hearing anti-abortion activists equate legal abortion in America with the Holocaust of the Jews in Nazi Germany, but Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver took that analogy to a rather bizarre extreme on yesterday's "Faith and Freedom" radio program when he declared that fetuses today are being dehumanized until they are considered to be "the dregs of the earth" just as the Jews were by the Nazis: This is no different than what we did to humans in the Nazi holocaust. We dehumanized them, we stigmatized them, we called them names and prohibited... MORE >

For some reason, Pope Francis met with James Robison and Kenneth Copeland. The Family Leader contingent has been ousted from the leadership of the Iowa Republican Party. It was not all good news for the Religious Right from the Supreme Court today, as the court refused to hear Liberty Counsel's challenge to California's ban on ex-gay therapy. Laurie Higgins warns that "even if homosexuals win the term 'marriage,' and win all the gazillions of benefits they feel that homoerotic unions deserve, and even if they’re able to acquire children through...

Matt Barber warned Saturday that gay people have “swarm[ed] in like a horde of locusts” and “homosexualized the Boy Scouts.” Barber was speaking with Mission America’s Linda Harvey, who told him that she had been outraged at the sight of Boy Scouts at the Columbus, Ohio, LGBT pride parade. Barber replied that he wasn’t surprised, since “the homosexual activist agenda” is “at the forefront of child corruption, that is a major part of their agenda.” “It is absolutely reprehensible that they are exposing these children to this...

Last month the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference announced that it was merging with Conela, a Latin America-based organization, to become “the world’s largest Hispanic Evangelical association” claiming to represent more than 500,000 churches. As Kyle reported, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver had encouraged the NHCLC’s Samuel Rodriguez to expand into Latin America after Staver’s visit to Peru, where he encouraged legislators to resist legal equality for gay people and same-sex couples. The wildly anti-gay Matt Barber, also with Liberty Counsel,... MORE >

Anti-gay activists are rejoicing at the Supreme Court's decision in Hobby Lobby today, in part because they are hopeful that the decision will pave the way for one of their own policy goals: to use the religious liberty argument to push for broad exemptions for corporations from nondiscrimination laws. Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber is hopeful that the decision bodes well for those trying to use religious freedom as a cloak to justify discrimination against LGBT people: #HobbyLobby may help protect businesses from those pushing counter-biblical #LGBT ...

The Religious Right’s reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case — in which the Court’s conservative majority ruled that some for-profit businesses must be exempt from the Affordable Care Act’s contraception coverage mandate — has started rolling in. Erick Erickson sees the decision as a victory over the promiscuous: My religion trumps your “right” to employer subsidized consequence free sex. — Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) June 30, 2014 Eric Metaxas thinks King George III would have been on the side of...

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Mat Staver and Matt Barber cited recent remarks made by Pope Francis about how "the Devil wants to destroy" the family in order to declare that gay marriage is "the brainchild" of Satan himself. "Marriage is the cornerstone institution of any healthy society," Barber asserted, "and so clearly the Father of Lies, the Enemy of the World hates marriage, wants to destroy marriage and so this concept of counterfeit marriage, of same-sex marriage, that is the brainchild, Mat, of none other than the...

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Mat Staver and Matt Barber were discussing the topic of "How Does One's Worldview Affect One's View of Government" during which they tried to explain the difference between theistic and atheistic worldviews, with Staver asserting that a belief in God is "the critical question" that must be addressed when discussing the issue of worldview. Barber agreed, laying out a rather circular explanation as to why the Christian worldview is the correct one, explaining that since Jesus and the Bible are the standards... MORE >
