The American Family Association’s Sandy Rios spoke to a caller today who said that ISIS militants will soon “come to the White House” and “Obama is going to swing the door open and he’s going to have a feast prepared for them because he is a Muslim, he is one of them.” “He hates America and he thinks he’s going to turn us into a Third World Muslim nation under the iron fist of the United Nations and I firmly believe that the reason he’s not doing anything about ISIS is because those are his friends,” the caller added.

Rios said she told the young woman that... MORE >

David Vitter appears to have embraced Michele Bachmann’s plan to prevent immigrants from sending money to their home countries, telling Sandy Rios in an interview yesterday that the U.S. government needs to “crack down” on remittances. When Rios asked the Louisiana senator about remittances, which she feared could be going to “terrorists,” Vitter said he has “a proposal to put an end to that, to either end or put a heavy, heavy fine on those sorts of transfers and dedicate that money, use that money specifically for border or workplace enforcement.”...

On Friday, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association attacked journalists Wesley Lowery and Ryan Reilly, who were detained by police officers while working in a McDonalds in Ferguson, Missouri. Speaking on her American Family Radio program, Rios called Lowery a “punk of a reporter” who was “causing trouble, trying to make the officer mad,” adding: “These are the men, these are the young men of our country, these are the guys who are going to defend the next generation, these are the future fathers of America’s children.

Tony Perkins is furious that the National Republican Congressional Committee is supporting three gay Republican candidates. Speaking of Perkins, he, Anne Graham Lotz, Richard Land, and others will be heading to Israel next week as part of a "Christians in Solidarity with Israel" trip being sponsored by the National Religious Broadcasters. Allen West headlined last night's Family-PAC fundraiser (the AFA's Sandy Rios is the PAC's VP.) It is nice to see other right wing "historians" mindlessly repeating David Barton's nonsense: "In fact,... MORE >

Another day, another example of the Religious Right’s persecution complex. On today’s edition of “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” listeners heard the sad tale of Laurie Higgins, a cultural analyst at the American Family Association-affiliated Illinois Family Institute, who spoke of the “liberal intolerance” and “persecution” she encountered in her previous work as a high school administrator. Higgins described how she was demoted and shunned by her colleagues because she spoke out against “pro-homosexual resources,” like “... MORE >
