It was just last week that the Employment Non-Discrimination Act was introduced in the Senate, so the Religious Right campaign of screaming their heads off is just getting off the ground. But Robert Knight of Coral Ridge Ministries gives us a nice preview of the sort of hyperbolic nonsense we can expect to see:On Aug. 5, the GOP's Maine kleptocrats, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, joined Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley and longtime sponsor Ted Kennedy in reintroducing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which we'll call the "gay quota bill" for short. ENDA is profoundly... MORE >

We can now add Concerned Women for America to the list of right-wing groups opposing David Hamilton, President Obama's first judicial nominee, while Rod Parsley's Center for Moral Clarity says "the Senate’s response to this nomination will tell us more about them than it will about the nominee."Congressman Steve King and others have called on President Obama to withdraw the nomination of Dawn Johnsen. You can see the letter here [PDF].Remember when it was the Republicans who were labeling the Democrats as "the party of no" for opposing President Bush's agenda?It... MORE >

Like Sarah Palin, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is coming under fire for appointing a justice to the state Supreme Court whom the Religious Right did not support.We can all be glad that we didn't make donations to Norm Coleman's re-election campaign.Former Congressman and right-wing crank Virgil Goode has filed to re-claim the seat he lost last November.John Hagee, Rod Parsley, and others are coming together for GOD TV's "Mammoth Missions Week" which, unfortunately, has nothing to do with mammoths.Robert Knight says that efforts to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell is "a train wreck...

The American Family Association’s One News Now is a “news” service in the same way that Fox is “fair and balanced.” Remember, One News Now is the outfit that published stories about “Tyson Homosexual” because they were so opposed to using the word “gay.” ONN’s “Daily News Briefs” have become a one-stop shop of wing-nuttery. Today it was also a victim of bad timingToday ONN’s top “story” – by our old pal Robert Knight -- complained that the national media “ignores Obama’s... MORE >

Robert Knight weighs in on the Jeremiah Wright controversy, saying it is unfair to compare to Jerry Falwell to Wright because "Falwell was no hater. After his most controversial moment, when he blamed pro-abortion and pro-homosexual groups for 9/11 as God's punishment on America for abandoning moral standards, he apologized." Of course, Falwell did nothing of the sort. MORE >

Just days after the Religious Right’s B-team gathered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to question Republican candidates for president (including the ones who didn’t show up), a number of more prominent right-wing figures are convening in Tampa for the Family Impact Summit, sponsored by the Focus on the Family-affiliated Florida Family Policy Council, the Tampa-based Community Issues Council, the Family Research Council, and the Salem radio network. Advertised topics range from “Christian Citizenship” to “Homosexual Agenda,” but the focus will no doubt be on the... MORE >
