5 Years After Passage Of Hate Crimes Law, Religious Right's Dire Predictions Still Haven't Come True
SUBMITTED BY: Brian Tashman, Wednesday 10/22/2014, 12:00pm
Here we go again. If Religious Right activists are to be believed, any day now the government will throw pastors in jail, have people “fined $500 a day” for reading the Bible and “start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians.” These are among the claims that were made this year by conservative politicians and movement leaders, who warn that America is now witnessing a “war on religion.” Similar dire warnings about the federal hate crimes law that was passed five years ago today have proven to be utterly false. The apocalyptic... MORE >

Right-wing pastor Paul Blair of Reclaiming America for Christ is not happy that same-sex marriage is now legal in his home state of Oklahoma, and took to BarbWire today to call on state government officials to defy federal court rulings on issues like marriage. Blair warns that “the republic is officially dead” as a result of overreaching government officials and judges, charging that the courts “have no authority” to strike down Oklahoma’s ban on same-sex marriage. He writes if the states don’t push back against the judiciary, then people like Judge... MORE >

On Washington Watch yesterday, Family Research Council head Tony Perkins chatted with Oklahoma pastor Paul Blair of Reclaiming America for Christ about a federal judge’s decision to strike down Oklahoma’s ban on same-sex marriage, and the two Religious Right figures were unsurprisingly outraged. Blair, who has claimed that the gay rights movement is a Satanic endeavor to destroy America and introduce communism, said that the movement to stop marriage equality is no different from the fights against slavery and Nazi Germany: “It’s time for us to stand with men like...

On Americans For Truth About Homosexuality Radio Hour, Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel and Religious Right activist Paul Blair joined AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera in exposing the surreptitious Satanic-Communist-‘Homosexualist’ conspiracy to take over America…and the world. LaBarbera criticized Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for using “homosexualist semantics” in her speech defending the human rights and dignity of the LGBT community, and went on to commend countries with severe laws that punish gays and lesbians and face of American pressure to decriminalize...

A few weeks ago, we noted that anti-gay activist Paul Blair was contemplating a run for the Oklahoma state Senate, prompted by threats he received after speaking out against a local anti-discrimination policy. So it was no surprise that Blair was recently on Peter LaBarbera's radio program where the two spent most of the program discussing the threats they have received and complaining how differently such things would be treated if Christians did them to gay activists. Also joining them on the program was Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber, who has never been shy about vocalizing his own pure and... MORE >

Oklahoma pastor Paul Blair joined Family Research Council president Tony Perkins today on Washington Watch Weekly to discuss his plans to run for office after speaking out against a proposal to add protections for sexual orientation in Oklahoma City’s anti-discrimination policy. Blair has tried to frame himself as a pastor who just happened to become involved in politics after he allegedly received threats after he denounced the measure, but as Kyle notes, he has a long history of working with anti-gay zealots like Sally Kern, Janet Porter and Perkins. While speaking with Perkins, Blair... MORE >

According to The Greely Gazette, when local pastor Paul Blair spoke out in opposition to an Oklahoma City proposal to add sexual orientation to the city’s anti-discrimination policy, he and his church received death and bomb threats. But Blair refuses to be intimidated by such threats and has decided, instead, to take a stand by running for state office: Paul Blair, Pastor of Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma told the council that the law was unnecessary and would create an unfair burden on employers and could allow men to use women’s restrooms and locker...
