Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union today railed against legislation in Maryland in a column, “Counterfeit Marriage is Anti-Religion,” arguing that marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples “violates the very essence of marriage.” According to Knight, legalizing same-sex marriage would do “incalculable” damage to religious freedom and would endanger the future of society because where “marriage is weak, devalued or redefined, communities fail.” “Whatever the expressed good intentions behind the same-sex ‘marriage...

Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union appeared on The Janet Mefferd Show yesterday to discuss his recent column where he warned that the so-called War on Christmas will be even more traumatic this year as the “Christmas-phobic ACLU tacks up portraits of Grandfather Frost in back offices to inspire them during that darned holiday season that Dare Not Tell Its Name.” Mefferd and Knight floated a legal strategy to challenge what Knight called in his column “the secular virus,” a lawsuit on the grounds that the government violated the First Amendment by...

Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union attacked Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the House sponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act which would repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act, for “destroying” the institution of marriage. In a column discussing the recent House vote to reaffirm “In God We Trust” as the nation’s motto, Knight blasted Nadler for criticizing the need to vote on the measure, as the congressman said it would “divert people’s attention from the real issues that we’re not dealing with,’ like unemployment....

Last week when Jeremy Hooper discovered that the Family Research Council was planning to roll out a campaign fighting back against the Southern Poverty Law Center's designation of the organization as an anti-gay hate group, we noted that FRC was asking people to sign on to the campaign to "stand in solidarity with Family Research Council, American Family Association, Concerned Women of America, National Organization for Marriage, Liberty Counsel and other pro-family organizations that are working to protect and promote natural marriage and family." By doing so, we pointed... MORE >

It turns out that when Dr. Laura announced she was retiring from radio after her racist rant, she didn't really mean it. If I never heard that phrase "American exceptionalism" again, I would be very happy. Hooray, Robert Knight wrote a book about marriage. I can't wait to not read it. I can't believe that Sarah Palin actually uses the phrase "lamestream media." This woman thinks she has what it takes to be president? Tony Perkins and Robert Maginnis demand a "full debate" before DADT is repealed ... and will keep demanding one forever... MORE >

Last week the Southern Poverty Law Center updated its list of anti-gay groups and added several new organizations to its list of anti-gay hate groups. Many influential Religious Right groups found themselves placed upon the SPLC's updated list, including the Family Research Council, American Family Association, Concerned Women for American, National Organization for Marriage, and Liberty Counsel. And to say that they are not happy about it would be a massive understatement. NOM called it an "absurd distraction," saying it stood by its work and that the report was really... MORE >

Religious Right anti-gay activists kicked off their Iowa bus tour today seeking to remove judges from the state Supreme Court for ruling in favor of marriage equality. Phyllis Schlafly interviews Robert Knight about socialism in an excruciatingly boring hour long radio broadcast. Glenn Beck is losing his mind. Bryan Fischer says "homosexual behavior will leave you diseased, lonely, and dead." Do not let the new Matt Damon movie blind you to the dangers of necromancy. Finally, Cathy Ruse is a Senior Fellow for Legal Studies at Family Research Council, and... MORE >

Christine O'Donnell did not have a very good showing in last night's debate and then lashed out at the GOP for abandoning her. But Rob Schenck wants her to win because the Senate needs more regular guys and gals. Justice Sam Alito says he won't be attending the next State of the Union address. Richard Viguerie and Morton Blackwell will host an "election night victory party for 350 conservative and Tea Party activists on Tuesday, November 2, at the Leadership Institute in Arlington, Virginia." Speaking of Viguerie, he and Brent Bozell came out in... MORE >
