Earlier today, Sen. Ted Cruz announced his campaign for president at Liberty University (LU), the ultraconservative school established by Jerry Falwell. His decision to choose Liberty is rather telling, considering that LU is a radically right-wing university with a law school staffed by some of the most viciously anti-gay Religious Right activists operating today. Of course, given that LU itself was founded by Falwell, who blamed gay people for 9/11, this should not come as much of a surprise. From the founding of Liberty's law school in 2004 until last year, Mat Staver served as dean... MORE >

On Saturday, roughly 2,000 activists gathered at Faith Assembly, a megachurch in Orlando, for the Awakening, an annual “Prayer and Patriotism event” organized by the Christian Right legal group Liberty Counsel. The Awakening, which Liberty Counsel organizes under the auspices of an amalgam of Religious Right groups called the Freedom Federation, brings together activists from the evangelical Right with the GOP politicians who want their votes. At this year's event, GOP politicians including Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal (via video) and RNC faith director Chad... MORE >

As we mentioned earlier, the mood at Saturday’s Awakening conference in Florida around the issue of gay marriage was utter panic, and nowhere was that expressed more clearly than in a panel titled “Same-Sex Marriage and Sexual Rebellion: Freedom Under Fire,” moderated by off-the-rails anti-gay pundit Matt Barber and featuring a pastor, two “ex-gay” activists, and Rena Lindevaldsen, the Liberty University dean who has murky ties with the case of an “ex-lesbian” who fled the country with her daughter to defy a court order giving the child's...

Matt Barber joined Steve Deace on his radio program yesterday to discuss the actions of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who’s urging judges in his state to defy a federal judge and refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. Barber told Deace that whether or not the United States Supreme Court has “the authority to redefine the institution of marriage, which cannot be done, it’s contrary to reality to say that it’s anything other than the male and female,” Moore is on “solid legal ground” in claiming that the Alabama Supreme Court...

Glenn Beck is readying a new program called "The Root" which will expose what is really going on behind today's biggest stories. The first episode will explain the "real reasons behind Putin and Russia’s geopolitical maneuvers." The Harry Potter series is pro-gay, so conservative Christians beware! Nearly 30 percent of the new teachers hired by Lynchburg city schools are graduates of Liberty University. Matt Barber says gay marriage is "evil" and he is willing to lead the fight against "homofascism." Laurie Cardoza-Moore... MORE >

Mat Staver has resigned from his position as dean of the Liberty University School of Law. Samuel Rodriguez declares that the supposed threat to religious liberty is "the single greatest civil rights threat of our time." Jerry Boykin and Kamal Saleem have written a novel together! Gina Miller declares that Christians must fight gay marriage with everything that they have because this is "just the beginning of the war on our freedoms being waged by the soldiers of Sodom West. It is more important than ever that Christians and other right-minded people resist... MORE >

Todd Starnes, Rick Santorum, Oliver North, Kirk Cameron, and the Benham Brothers are among those scheduled to speak at Liberty University this semester. Scott Lively is running for governor in Massachusetts in order to "restore a biblical worldview among conservatives here in this state and other values voters." It is always worth reminding people that Kimberly Daniels is a sitting city councilwoman in Jacksonville, Florida. Laurie Higgins is predicatbly outraged that Judge Richard Posner did not buy the Religious Right's arguments against gay marriage. Uh oh... MORE >

On a recent episode of Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program, Mat Staver argued that marriage equality can’t be a fundamental right because it’s not “deeply rooted in our history that you have to protect it,” and in fact “homosexuality has always been considered a crime against nature” and “something that’s been criminalized in our culture.” A fundamental right in constitutional law has to either be specifically articulated in an enumeration of the Constitution — so a fundamental right would be...
