While most people equate the word “terrorism” with “Muslim extremists, radical bombings, and hijacked aircraft,” we learned in Townhall this weekend, “there’s another form of terrorism happening right here in America.” That would be the “violent war” being waged by “LGB-Terrorists” on behalf of their “odd lifestyle,” writes columnist Joanne Moudy, who identifies herself as an “ambassador” for the influential Religious Right group Alliance Defending Freedom. h/t Gay Star News When the word ‘...

The fervently anti-gay writer Frank Turek takes to Townhall today to present an interesting analogy. Turke argues that when gays and lesbians advocate for marriage equality, they are being just as unreasonable as someone who “can’t qualify to become a police officer” protesting “when the government pays other people to be police officers.” He goes on to say that gays and lesbians can “simply marry someone of the opposite sex” and that the legalization of same-sex marriage will harm children and cause Americans to “lose the freedom of speech....

Bishop Harry Jackson yesterday tried to spin Kim Kardashian’s short-lived marriage as a reason to oppose marriage equality for gays and lesbians by arguing that the “enfeebled state of marriage today is all the more reason to fight to preserve it,” meaning, to deny same-sex couples the right to marry. Jackson, who earlier called marriage equality a “Satanic plot to destroy our seed,” warned that marriage equality will do even more damage to marriage than Kardashian’s 72-day marriage because it would create a harmful environment for children and lead to an...

Sandy Rios, the former president of Concerned Women for America turned conservative columnist and Fox News contributor, doesn’t buy Sharon Bialek’s claim that Herman Cain made an unwanted physical advance to her during a meeting with him in 1997. Rios, now the vice president of Family PAC, says that if Bialek was planning an “over night visit” with someone she only knew “slightly,” then, “What was Herman Cain to think about a single woman making an unnecessary arrangement like that—agreeing to drinks and dinner on the basis of nothing more,...

Things are continuing to go well for Michele Bachmann's presidential campaign. So I am guess that Penny Nance would not be impressed by the several hours I spent last night playing "Arkham City"? Eric Cantor bravely canceled his speech on income inequality when he found out it would be open to the public. A hotel refuses to host one of her speaking engagements, which obviously means that the hotel caved to Islamic supremacists and America is falling under Sharia. Finally, the quote of the day from Star Parker:... MORE >

Herman Cain has said this week that he is pro-life and that abortion should be made illegal, but also that the government shouldn’t have any role in it and the decision should be left up to the woman and her family. As Kyle notes, it seems that Cain’s position is that abortion should be outlawed but “in situations where a family was deciding whether or not to break the law, it is none of the government’s business to tell them what to do.” Cain seems to be the only person who understands this view, and the Religious Right is not happy, to say the least. Rick Perry... MORE >

Rush Limbaugh really ought to do some basic research before accusing President Obama of targeting Christians. And WND, of course, gives Limbaugh a run for his money. Mike Huckabee sure does like joking about voter suppression. Harry Jackson continues his shameless shilling for energy interests. Bryan Fischer credits Rick Perry for "not throwing Robert Jeffress under the bus" and predicts that he will be the GOP nominee. Finally, imagine there's no pizza. MORE >

Bill Keller and Janet Mefferd rally to Robert Jeffress' side and defend his assertion that Mormonism is a cult. Chris Christie has endorsed Mitt Romney. Tim Pawlenty regrets dropping out of the presidential race. Michele Bachmann is still trying to pretend that her campaign is right on track. Joe the Plumber is running for Congress. This ought to be good. Matt Barber says the Religious Right doesn't seek "dominion," but simply "intend to 'take over government' insofar as this means ensuring... MORE >
