The War on Christmas season began early this year, with some honestly incomprehensible right-wing outrage over Starbucks’ insufficiently festive red holiday promotional cups. The Starbucks cup outrage got a prominent new backer yesterday when Richard Land, the former political leader of the Southern Baptist Convention, said that Christians should boycott the coffee chain over the perceived snub. Land was a guest on the Newsmax TV program hosted by former Arizona congressman J.D. Hayworth, who introduced the segment by playing a clip of the new Seth Rogen movie “The Night Before... MORE >

Russell Moore, an influential evangelical leader who serves as the head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s political arm, has not been shy about his disapproval of Donald Trump, even as Trump continues to lead polls of Republican-leaning evangelical voters. It turns out that Moore’s predecessor, Richard Land, has similar feelings about The Donald, telling a Christian radio program this week that he was “dismayed” by Trump’s “mystifying and somewhat depressing” popularity among evangelicals. “I guess I would have to say that I’m...

Richard Land, the former head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s political arm who is now president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary, repeated his claim on Tuesday that Barack Obama’s presidency is “a direct judgment of God on America” for legal abortion.” “In our society, there’s an idea abroad that unborn babies are not fully human beings and don’t deserve the protection of the law,” Land told South Carolina pastor and radio host Kevin Boling. “That’s resulted in 57 million babies being killed, it’s...

Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, appeared on TheDove TV on Friday to warn that not allowing government clerks or business owners to discriminate against gay couples amounts to "the weaponizing of government" against Christians. After host Perry Atkinson asserted that America is heading for more conflict in the wake of the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling as more and more Christian business owners and government officials refuse to provide services to same-sex couples, Land declared that not allowing Christians to discriminate in this manner is...

Shockingly, it turns out that Rep. Steve King’s claim that the Supreme Court legalized man-lawnmower marriage in its Obergefell ruling was false. Richard Land is steamed that President Obama denounced Kenya’s criminalization of homosexuality, adding that “President Obama being president of the United States is in itself a judgment of God on the United States.” Ann Coulter insists that “the Republican Party is going to go the way of the Whigs” unless it embraces Donald Trump and anti-immigrant rhetoric. Alan Keyes... MORE >

U.S. Religious Right leaders have not been happy with President Obama’s criticism of Kenya’s criminal prohibition on homosexuality during his visit to the country last week, with Franklin Graham accusing the president of “exporting the acceptance of immorality” and Bryan Fischer deeming the president “rude.” In an interview with Newsmax TV on Monday, former Southern Baptist Convention policy head Richard Land, agreed with Graham’s comments, accusing the president of promoting “extreme gay rights” by speaking out against Kenya’s...

Richard Land, the former head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s political arm, said yesterday that a conservative group’s new series of videos falsely claiming that Planned Parenthood is “selling aborted baby” parts may be the “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” of the fight against legal abortion. “I think that this may be the equivalent of ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin,’” Land said on Newsmax TV. “You know, when Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote that book, she put a human face on slavery. And Lincoln met her after the war had started and... MORE >

WorldNetDaily is preparing for its annual “9/11 Day of Prayer and Repentance,” an effort to win God’s hand of protection back to America after “the beginning of the removal of our nation’s blessings” in the 2001 terrorist attacks, something that WND reports is “more important than ever” in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision striking down gay marriage bans. In this effort, WND has the support of such Religious Right leaders as Chuck Norris and former Rep. Michele Bachmann. WND also recorded a number of promotional videos with... MORE >
