Focus on the Family’s Glenn Stanton spoke at the Family Research Council Monday on “The Scientific Objectivity and Universality of Gender Difference.” The context, explained in FRC’s promotion for the talk, was the Obama administration’s directive on transgender students’ access to facilities that match their gender identity — or, in FRC’s words, the administration’s “working to elevate the cause of these individuals who believe their observable, biological sex does not match their gender identity.” In other words, FRC asked...

Religious Right activists say they’re fighting to save religious liberty in America from the gay rights movement, but many of the same leaders are happy to partner with the most religiously repressive regimes in order to resist advances toward LGBT equality around the world. Consider Monday’s “Uniting Nations for a Family Friendly World” event at the United Nations. It was sponsored by anti-gay and anti-choice groups like the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam, formerly known as the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute) and Family Watch International,...

Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow with the Family Research Council, said last week that LGBT rights activist are “un-American” in their opposition to laws that permit anti-LGBT discrimination, claiming that these activists want to “punish people for holding traditional moral views.” Sprigg joined the Alabama Christian radio station Faith Radio on April 8 to discuss a new law in Mississippi that allows businesses to refuse service to LGBT people if they do so because of their “sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions.” “The irony here,...

Pat Robertson's CBN News posted an article today featuring several anti-gay activists complaining that gains in equality are leading to "growing anti-Christian" persecution in America, with MassResistance's Brian Camenker likening the situation to Nazi Germany: Some say American Christians are paranoid, that they're feeling targeted and persecuted. But is it possible America is facing a growing anti-Christian agenda? Some on the frontline of the culture wars have responded with a resounding "yes." They feel it up close and personal – right in... MORE >

Ben Carson and Kirk Cameron, together at last! Jonathan Cahn continues to insist that his blown Shemitah prophecy was, in fact, totally accurate. FRC's Peter Sprigg says that "the pro-homosexual movement is dedicated to putting a straightjacket on people and making it impossible for them to even express the view that marriage is the union of a man and a woman or that children do better with a mom and a dad." Charisma magazine founder Steve Strang explains why he's endorsing Ted Cruz: "Christians must rise up and vote to place leaders in office who will... MORE >

Liberty Counsel stands ready and willing to lead the fight in the War on Thanksgiving: "Liberty Counsel recognizes that Thanksgiving is a religious holiday. Despite society’s attempt to minimize religious expression and the Christ-centered focus of this holiday season. If your religious rights are being challenged this Thanksgiving Day, or Thanksgiving time, contact Liberty Counsel at 407-875-1776." His scandals appear to have finally caught up with him, as Republican Sen. David Vitter lost his bid to become governor of Louisiana. Alex McFarland says President... MORE >

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Family Research Council officials Tony Perkins and Peter Sprigg chatted about the World Congress of Families, the international gathering of social conservative activists taking place this week in Salt Lake City, which Sprigg will be attending. The two were upset that LGBT advocacy groups have criticized the World Congress of Families, with Perkins insisting that criticism of the event amounts to an attempt to “silence” conservative Christians and Sprigg laughably asserting that “the vast majority” of the discussions at...

On Monday, the day before the World Congress of Families conference opened in Salt Lake City, some of America’s most strident anti-gay voices convened for an all-day session they dubbed #Stand4Truth. Turnout was small — about 50 during the day, a bit more in the evening — and the lunchtime press conference was delivered to a room devoid of press, but organizers filmed the speakers in hopes of turning the footage into a documentary or other resource for anti-gay activists. The 11-hour-plus event (counting short breaks for lunch and dinner) was hosted by Sandy Rios of the... MORE >
