Focus on the Family spokesman Glenn Stanton, who called same-sex unions satanic, ironically told virulently anti-gay talk show host Janet Mefferd in an interview yesterday that the Religious Right should move away from the polarizing rhetoric of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and James Dobson, the founder of Focus. While discussing a study pointing to greater acceptance of gay rights among evangelicals, Stanton said that people are moving away from the tactics and style of leaders like “Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, you know even speaking here from Focus, Dr. Dobson.” Stanton said...

Truth In Action Ministries, which last year produced a film warning that the “radical homosexual agenda” will destroy America like an iceberg hitting the Titanic, is out with a new short film opposing gay members in the Boy Scouts. Featuring Religious Right leaders like Bob Knight of the American Civil Rights Union, Glenn Stanton of Focus on the Family, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel and Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, the anti-gay activists warn that gays pose a physical and spiritual danger to children and do away with morality.

Glenn Stanton of Focus on the Family appeared with John Rabe and Carmen Pate on Truth that Transforms, the flagship radio program of Truth in Action Ministries, to argue that same-sex marriage is an oppressive and satanic ploy. After Rabe asked him why opponents of same-sex marriage sometimes have problems explaining “why redefining [marriage] is deadly,” Stanton claimed that the marriage debate “goes deep into not just our own faith but humanity itself.” He argued that resistance to same-sex marriage is necessary because “throughout the world if you look at how...

Glenn Stanton: 'There is More Evidence for Bigfoot than there is that Homosexuality is just Who We Are'

Janet Mefferd spoke to Focus on the Family official Glenn Stanton yesterday about a new study in The Quarterly Review of Biology which suggests that epigenetics may explain what causes homosexuality. Right off the bat, the two were wary of the study because its principal researchers work in the field of evolutionary genetics and anyone who believes in the theory of evolution should not be trusted. Stanton maintained that upholding the science of evolution “takes as much faith” as believing in creationism! Mefferd: It’s strange, you have scientists here headed up by an... MORE >

Bryan Fischer reiterates his call to ban immigration from Muslim countries. James Robison says President Obama Vice-President Biden "have claims of religious beliefs that directly contradict the words and actions of both... MORE >
Focus on the Family Spokesman Calls it 'Very Unscientific' to Believe Same-Sex Parents Can have Healthy Families
SUBMITTED BY: Brian Tashman, Thursday 02/16/2012, 4:50pm
Focus on the Family’s Glenn Stanton joined John Rabe of Truth in Action Ministries on Truth that Transforms yesterday to discuss same-sex parenting. The two claimed that supporters of marriage equality are “unscientific” when it comes to family stability and have “completely ignored” evidence showing that same-sex parenting harms children. Rabe: Glenn, it’s always very interesting to me because we Christians are portrayed as being often anti-science and anti-progress and so forth yet when you talk about the issue of marriage and family it’s...

Last week we noted how a new book "showed a significant shift toward counting same-sex couples with children as family" and how this trend was not sitting well with the Religious Right, especially Focus on the Family's Glenn Stanton, who refused to accept the idea that legally married gay couples constitute a family. And Stanton is apparently so very intent on restricting the use of the word "family" to only situations that meet his narrow definition, which is why he is lashing out against it once again, saying that people who think gay couples are a family are young and...

A new book, "Counted Out: Same-Sex Relations and Americans' Definition of Family," reports that surveys taken over the last several years "showed a significant shift toward counting same-sex couples with children as family - from 54 percent of respondents in 2003 to 68 percent in 2010. " Of course, the surveys also found that there is "a solid core resisting this trend who are more willing to include pets in their definition than same-sex partners" ... and I am guessing that Focus on the Family falls into that category: "Same-sex marriage is a...
