Louisiana Family Forum president Gene Mills used his appearance on “Washington Watch” yesterday not only to badly misrepresent a proposed non-discrimination ordinance in Baton Rouge, but also to claim that abuse shelters should be able to discriminate against transgender women who face domestic abuse. “What if this person who claimed to be a transgendered [sic] actually obtained one of these quote legal marriage licenses in elsewhere USA came here and then claimed battery by their spouse, should that man who has now communicated as a transgendered [sic] who has the...

Filling in for Tony Perkins on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” former Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land discussed the defeat of an LGBT non-discrimination measure in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with Gene Mills of the right-wing Louisiana Family Forum. Land and Mills both claimed that the ordinance barring employment and housing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity would actually, in Land’s words, “suppress the freedom of speech.” “Homosexuality and the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender...

For right-wing advocates, big conservative wins in the Supreme Court’s recently completed term have only confirmed the importance of electing a president in 2016 who will give them more justices in the mold of Samuel Alito and John Roberts. The Roberts and Alito nominations, and the conservative majority created by their confirmations, represent the triumph of a decades-long push by right-wing funders, big business, conservative political strategists, and legal groups to take ideological dominion of all levels of the federal judiciary. Right-wing groups have long made attacks on... MORE >

After lecturing liberals on why they are wrong to fault the United States for slavery, former Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land drew a connection between the rise of gay rights and Nazi Germany. While guest-hosting yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” Land spoke with Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes about President Obama’s recent executive order to protect employees of federal government contractors from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. He told Starnes that conservatives need to stand up to “the gay... MORE >

Richard Land, the former head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s policy arm, is sick and tired of liberal public school propaganda about slavery in colonial America and the early United States. Subbing for Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on yesterday’s “Washington Watch” radio show, Land told listeners that Americans “ended slavery, we didn’t bring slavery to North America.” He added that Native Americans were “enslaving each other before we got there.” While it is the case that some Native American groups did engage in...

National Journal is out today with a profile of the new kinder, gentler Religious Right, looking at the downfall of Richard Land’s career as a sign that the movement is turning away from aggressive culture wars and instead finding a less threatening political approach. Reporter Tiffany Stanley interviewed Land, a former top Southern Baptist Convention official, who waxed nostalgic for the days when President Bush was in office…and especially for Bush’s commitment to nominating ultra-conservative federal judges. “Alito and Roberts are the gifts that keep on giving, and...

Glenn Beck insists that the Tea Party's repeated losses prove that the movement is on the cusp of total success. In trying to recover from its disastrous and short-lived effort at being less anti- gay, World Vision is now "asking board members to formally affirm a statement that marriage is between a man and a woman." Richard Land insists that "the Bible has something to say about economics, the Bible has something to say about sex, the Bible has something to say about politics – the Bible has something to say about every subject." Gary... MORE >

Earlier this week, Vice President Joe Biden spoke out against anti-gay discrimination around the world, declaring that the fight for gay rights is the "civil rights issue of our day" and saying that no culture has an excuse to practice prejudice and intolerance. Richard Land, not surprisingly, did not agree with Biden's remarks, telling Newsmax TV today that his comments were "simplistic" and "wrong-headed" because "deeply-held religious convictions" cannot be brushed off merely as social or cultural values. "The Bible," Land said, "... MORE >
