Michael Farris, the homeschooling activist and founder of Patrick Henry College, joined South Carolina pastor Kevin Boling on his “Knowing the Truth” radio program yesterday, where he claimed that Christians have entered a new “dark ages” of religious intolerance and “heresy trials” thanks to gay marriage. Recalling the ideologically diverse coalition that worked to pass the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 1993 (which included us at People for the American Way), Farris claimed that the “political left” has since abandoned religious freedom...

American Family Association official Sandy Rios warned on her radio program yesterday that the Obama administration’s decision to light up the White House in rainbow colors in celebration of the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision was “an unbelievable affront to God” that will have “consequences.” According to Rios, God will lift His hand of protection from America in response to the court’s ruling and the celebratory rainbow images, thereby increasing the threat of terror attacks on the United States. The rainbow, she said, “was God... MORE >

Michael Farris, the chancellor of Patrick Henry College and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, told Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson yesterday that with its ruling striking down bans on gay marriage, the Supreme Court threw out “the entire institution of our courts and our judiciary and respect for the law” in pursuit of a “rainbow utopia.” Repeating the Religious Right line that Justices Ruth Bader Kingsburg and Elena Kagan should have recused themselves from the case because they have officiated legal same-sex marriages, Farris suggested...

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins hosted Mike Farris of the Home School Legal Defense Association to discuss the purported threat gay rights poses to freedom in the U.S. Farris, who once worried that the Obama administration would let the United Nations take kids who wear glasses from their homes, didn’t disappoint, joining Perkins in calling on parents to take their kids out of public schools because of their LGBT-inclusive policies. “The forces of officialdom,” Farris said, are “making it very difficult to see...

Linda Harvey says that anti-discrimination measures that provide protection to gays "should really be called 'gag' orders, because the goal is to criminalize speech and Christian faith." Frank Gaffney says that President Obama has "changed sides" on Iran. We can add Texas Eagle Forum leader Cathie Adams to the list of conservatives worried about Jade Helm 15: "Why is it that only states that are red, those that are Republican, are being targeted in this?" Christopher Doyle blasts the Oregon legislature for putting "politics and... MORE >

Michael Farris, one of the leaders of the conservative homeschooling movement and the founder of Patrick Henry College, issued a harsh condemnation of the “Christian patriarchy” movement today, calling the ideology famously promoted by the Duggar clan “dangerous” and saying that it hurts the homeschooling movement’s image. Two leaders of the Christian patriarchy movement — Doug Phillips and Bill Gothard — have been hit with sexual harassment and abuse charges in the past year, which has drawn attention to the movement’s teachings —...

Gov. Bobby Jindal will be the commencement speaker at Liberty University next month. Michael Farris is now bravely trying to distance himself from Doug Phillips. NOM is organizing its second annual "March for Marriage" because "we must show that we will not be intimidated by the thought-police-bullies intent on silencing us so they can push their agenda down America's throat!" Good luck with that. FRC prays against legalized pot: "May state policies which encourage marijuana use, which serve as a gateway to more harmful drugs and addiction... MORE >
