U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, spoke on Monday morning at Liberty University. Liberty was founded by Jerry Falwell and has, under his son’s leadership, grown to be a huge and influential part of the Religious Right’s cultural infrastructure. The school has a tradition of drawing attention to itself by inviting politicians to its mandatory student convocations. Sanders stated upfront and unapologetically that he is pro-choice and pro-gay and that he knew most of the people in the audience disagreed with him about that. His... MORE >

Just as they did during the last two presidential election cycles, Religious Right activists are trying to unify behind one candidate in order to stop an unacceptably "moderate" front-runner. We are sure it'll work this time. Jay Richards claims that recognizing marriage equality "strikes at the foundation of individual rights." AFA Executive Vice President Ed Vitagliano tells WND that there is a "tendency for gay activists to want basically the whole world to be gay." We are not quite sure how Brietbart.com thinks that it has "debunked... MORE >

On Tuesday's episode of the "Hagee Hotline," Matthew Hagee interviewed Jay Richards, a professor at the Catholic University of America and senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, about the Supreme Court's upcoming marriage equality case. Hagee asked Richards how Christians should discuss the issue of gay marriage so as not to be dismissed as close-minded and judgmental bigots who seek to deny civil rights to gay people, to which Richards replied that the issue is not about discrimination at all because there simply is no such thing as gay marriage. "The accusation is... MORE >

Pseudo-historian David Barton has been receiving significant criticism from conservative and evangelical historians who are aghast at his numerous and deliberate misrepresentations of American history, and yet Barton continues to claim that the only people who find trouble with his work are members of the liberal, secular, anti-American elite who just don’t like him exposing the “truth” about the founders. Barton said that he is like Jesus and chooses to ignore his critics, even though he usually attacks or sues them. But as Barton’s star continues to rise in right-... MORE >

Glenn Beck appeared alongside James Robison, Jay Richards and Jim Garlow at Garlow’s Skyline Church in San Diego, California, where he warned that America is like a “child being choked to death” because the “scary left” has been “uncorked” and given “free rein.” While holding up a copy of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, he said the left seeks to burn America “down to the ground.” Later in the talk, Beck said that the left wants to eliminate sexual mores to turn people into slaves and have government “rule over us...

Intelligent Design activist Jay Richards of the Discovery Institute, who recently coauthored the book Indivisible with televangelist James Robison, appeared on Phyllis Schlafly’s radio program Eagle Forum Live this week where he argued that those who believe in individual rights and limited government should oppose the rights of gays and lesbians to marry. Richards maintained that stopping the legalization of same-sex marriage is needed to defend the rights of individuals, and argued that since marriage is “outside the jurisdiction of the state” same-sex couples cannot take...

James Robison (aka "God's Hit Man") and Jay Richards, a climate change-denying, Intelligent Design-promoting Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute, have teamed up to write a new book entitled "Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It's Too Late" on how Christians can rise up and save America. For the last few days, Robison and Richards have been promoting it on Robison's "Life Today" television program where, yesterday, Robison threw down the gauntlet, telling secularists that he was trying to save America so that they would be able to...
