A few weeks ago, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was speaking to students at the University of Minnesota Law School when she made the rather straightforward observation that if 6th Circuit Court of Appeals follows other recent court decisions and strikes down gay marriage bans in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee, then the prospects of the Supreme Court taking up the issue of marriage equality would be less likely in the near term. The reasoning behind this statement is that if appellate courts consistently strike down such bans, then the Supreme Court will not need to get involved right... MORE >

Matt Barber and Steve Crampton began today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast by attacking Rep. Nancy Pelosi for accepting the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood last month, but the discussion quickly got sidetracked into criticism of efforts to outlaw the use of "ex-gay" reparative therapy on minors, with Crampton comparing it to efforts by mental health professionals to promote eugenics in the early 1900s in order to sterilize and eliminate "undesirables": And the side to the whole eugenics movement that I think still underlies the abortion...

The ENDA is Near: The Top Ten Religious Right Claims About the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (UPDATED)
SUBMITTED BY: Layne, Wednesday 10/30/2013, 3:34pm
With the Senate expected to vote on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act before Thanksgiving, here’s a look at Right Wing Watch’s collection of recent – and classic – claims from the Religious Right about ENDA. Because ENDA is common sense legislation that would make it illegal to fire, refuse to hire, or refuse to promote employees because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, the Right cannot gain much traction by opposing ENDA on its merits. Instead, resorting to fear-mongering and lies, they contend that ENDA will lead to everything from the... MORE >

Earlier this year, the grounds crew for the St. Louis Cardinals began drawing a number "6" along with a cross on the pitcher's mound before home games in honor of former Cardinals star Stan Musial, who passed away in January. When the team's general manager learned about the practice, he asked the grounds crew to stop doing it, saying that it is "not club policy to be putting religious symbols on the playing field or throughout the ballpark." And that, of course, has outraged Matt Barber and Steve Crampton, who apparently feel that not having a cross etched... MORE >

Generally when the Religious Right likens its own efforts to William Wilberforce's crusade to end slavery, they do so when discussing the topic of abortion, but apparently it applies to their fight against marriage equality as well. In the wake of the Supreme Court's rulings on DOMA and Prop 8, Rep. Tim Huelskamp has introduced a constitutional amendment seeking to ban gay marriage and while Matt Barber and Steve Crampton both realize has no chance of passing, they are going to continue to push for it and stick with it just like Wilberforce did because eventually Christians will...

A few weeks ago, an anti-gay activist was attacked while protesting a gay pride festival in Seattle by a straight man with a long criminal record and Matt Barber and Steve Crampton are not the least bit surprised because, well, what else can you expect from those who have been given over to a "reprobate mind." Crampton and Barber warned that these sorts of attacks on anti-gay Christians will only increase in the months and years ahead because, as Crampton explained, "the life of the average homosexual is not controlled by reason" but a perverted lust and passion that has...

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Matt Barber and Steve Crampton were particularly disturbed by the recent incident in Texas where some protestors facetiously chanted "Hail Satan" at a rally during the special legislative session called to pass the state's restrictive abortion bill. While Barber saw it as evidence that "the pro-aborts are losing their minds," Crampton felt that it accurately reflected the contrast between the two sides in this legal battle where "you have the demons from the escorts and the pro-abortion side and angels...

On a recent "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Matt Barber and Steve Crampton discussed the looming Supreme Court hearing over the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act during which they declared that if the Court strikes it down, "it is high time the people rise up against the tyranny of the judiciary." "If the judges foist this upon us, we need to resist," proclaimed Crampton, which prompted Barber to respond that Christians will have seriously consider civil disobedience, saying "in the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr, it may be the time for...
