Ben Carson has officially changed his party affiliation to Republican, because one needs to get all one's ducks in a row before launching a pointless vanity campaign for president. Right-wing activists who screamed about Democrats in the Senate implementing the "nuclear option" are predictably asking Sen. Mitch McConnell to retain it now that it might benefit Republicans. There is something quite amusing about Glenn Beck thinking that people being spectacularly wrong ought to be cause for embarrassment. Samuel Rodriguez seems to think that placing Republicans in...

Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, was a guest on James Robison's "Life Today" program this morning, where he called upon Christians to vote according to "what the Word of God says" because there is a movement at work that seeks "to silence Christians in America." Rodriguez warned that Christians cannot afford to sit out this election because "today's complacency is tomorrow's captivity" and just as Christians in other countries are being killed by terrorists, so too are Christians in...

Yesterday, Trinity Broadcasting Network recorded its flagship Praise the Lord program from a waterfront resort in the Bahamas. Among those who joined the broadcast were Religious Right activist Samuel Rodriguez and anti-gay “ex-gay” singer Donnie McClurkin. TBN’s visit to the Bahamas came shortly after a gay pride event scheduled for this past weekend at a private resort in the Bahamas was cut short in response to a backlash that reportedly included death threats and vitriol on local talk shows. Among those who slammed the pride event and the LGBT movement in general was Dr... MORE >

Last week we noted that David Barton had begun promoting GOPFaith.com, a new effort from the Republican National Committee to mobilize a hundred thousand Religious Right activists on behalf of GOP candidates that is being headed by South Carolina GOP chairman Chad Connelly. South Carolina GOP chairman Chad Connelly Now it looks like Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference's Samuel Rodriguez have also climbed on board, as both have now filmed videos promoting the effort as well. In his video, Staver says that he is "excited... MORE >

Last month the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference announced that it was merging with Conela, a Latin America-based organization, to become “the world’s largest Hispanic Evangelical association” claiming to represent more than 500,000 churches. As Kyle reported, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver had encouraged the NHCLC’s Samuel Rodriguez to expand into Latin America after Staver’s visit to Peru, where he encouraged legislators to resist legal equality for gay people and same-sex couples. The wildly anti-gay Matt Barber, also with Liberty Counsel,... MORE >

Religious Right leaders love to claim that Christians are threatened in the U.S., the subject of a forthcoming PFAW report on the Religious Right’s persecution complex. The latest example comes from the just-completed annual conference of the Southern Baptist Convention. Russell Moore, who heads the SBC’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, hosted Rick Warren, David Platt, and Samuel Rodriguez for a June 9 panel on religious freedom in America through the lens of the Hobby Lobby case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. According to an account by Tom Strode in the... MORE >

Back in 2012, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver joined the board of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) and also took on the responsibility of serving as the organization's chief legal counsel. When Staver traveled to Peru last year to be honored for his anti-gay and anti-choice activism, he was so impressed by the commitment of local churches to resist the American government's efforts "to undermine the Judeo-Christian values of life and marriage" that, upon returning to the United States, he called NHCLC president Samuel Rodriquez and encouraged...

Matt Barber's very credible website BarbWire has learned from an equally credible "inside" source that "Allen B. West is seriously considering a 2016 presidential run." We very much hope that this is true. Speaking of Barber, he says that we are an "anti-Christian segregationist organization that exist for the sole purpose of segregating Christians and Christianity from any public forum." We are pretty sure that is not true. Samuel Rodriguez says that Oklahoma's recent botched execution ought to be generating an outcry of evangelical Christians... MORE >
