Glenn Beck's constantly shifting positions are now starting to confuse even his loyal audience, with one listener saying today, "I feel like I’m taking crazy pill" just trying to figure out Beck's contradictory stances. David Lane issues a word of warning: "Secularism’s worldliness will only tolerate Christianity so long as its carnal tranquility is not disturbed or its authority challenged. But let the Christian bring his biblical values to the political arena, and he is immediately denounced as narrow-minded, out of step, behind the times, and a... MORE >

Houston Mayor Annise Parker has announced that the subpoenas sent to five area pastors have been withdrawn. David Benham was on hand in Ohio last night to a support radical right-wing pastor's fight against a local strip club. A good question: "Is Ebola a Sign of Judgment or a Prophetic Warning?" Is anyone surprised that there is now a right-wing effort underway to get nurse Kaci Hickox fired from her job for refusing to submit to involuntary quarantine after she returned from treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone? Janet Mefferd is not happy with Russell... MORE >

During last weekend's "iPledge Sunday" event, the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins interviewed David and Jason Benham, who repeated their new favorite talking point likening the loss of their planned reality television show to Christians who are being murdered by ISIS in the Middle East. "This is a spiritual battle," Jason said. "From the outset, there was a war in Heaven and now it's manifesting itself here on this earth" in the form of attacks on Christians like them. "We see the struggle between good and evil, light and darkness, truth... MORE >

One thing was clear at last week’s Values Voter Summit: many of the Religious Right’s leaders and allied politicians know that their stances on abortion rights and LGBT equality are becoming more and more toxic to the average voter, and less and less popular within the GOP. Many speakers at the conference tried to reframe the debate on issues such as same-sex marriage, insisting that opponents of LGBT rights are becoming an oppressed minority in America. This delusion even seeped into matters such as foreign policy, with speakers attacking President Obama as an Islamist... MORE >

We have gotten used to Religious Right activists compare themselves to Jews living under Nazi Germany, but David and Jason Benham took a new approach at the Values Voter Summit last night and compared themselves to victims of the terrorist group ISIS. The Benham twins, of course, were referring to how they lost their planned HGTV reality show after we reported on their anti-gay, anti-choice and anti-Muslim political activism. In their speech to the summit, the Benham twins argued that just as ISIS beheads their victim with a sword, progressive groups like Right Wing Watch “silence... MORE >

This weekend, Republican elected officials including Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul, and Gov. Bobby Jindal will take part in what has become an annual ritual for potential GOP presidential contenders: they will seek to curry the favor of the Religious Right by speaking at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit. In doing so, they put themselves in the company of some of the most radical groups and activists working today to dehumanize LGBT people, roll back reproductive rights, tear down the wall between church and state, and deny free exercise rights to religious minorities....

David and Jason Benham, two Religious Right activists who became right-wing celebrities after HGTV canceled their planned reality show due to their anti-choice, anti-gay activism, were among the speakers at last night's "Star Spangled Sunday" event, where they urged Christians to be a bold and heroic in standing up for Christianity just as they had been. As Jason explained, HGTV may have canceled their show but "they did not take our freedom because we've been set free by the blood of Jesus Christ ... And we're encouraging everybody else to take a stand just like... MORE >
