On Friday, Stuart Shepard of Family Policy Alliance, the political arm of Focus on the Family, discussed transgender rights on Alabama’s Faith Radio, claiming that the government’s support of transgender people amounts to “discrimination” against the non-transgender “humans that we share this country with.” Shepard claimed that transgender people reject the existence of a God who creates everyone with purpose in mind. “When you reject the idea of the ability to know what’s true, you’re essentially rejecting God,” he said. “...

Ever since Robert Dear opened fire on a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs last month, many anti-abortion activists have been trying to claim that Dear was not motivated by opposition to abortion rights, something that has become increasingly difficult as information about him emerges. But one diehard skeptic, it seems, is Stuart Shepard of CitizenLink, the political arm of the Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family. In an interview on “The Meeting House,” an Alabama Christian radio program that was posted on the program’s website last Friday, Stuart... MORE >

It is kind of amazing that defenders of Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who has ordered her office not to issue any marriage licenses in order to avoid abiding by the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling, actually think that it is entirely reasonable to force the more than 20,000 residents of the county to accommodate Davis' personal religious convictions rather than require her to simply do her job. Like Mat Staver yesterday, Stuart Shepard of Focus on the Family's Citizenlink insists today that the 23,333 residents of Rowan County, Kentucky, "could easily drive to... MORE >

Yesterday, Tom Minnery and Stuart Shepard of Focus on the Family's CitizenLink were discussing the need for conservative Christians to vote in the upcoming election, with Minnery saying that it was important so that Republicans can control both the House and the Senate and then pass right-wing legislation that President Obama will then veto, which will help the Republicans in the 2016 presidential election. "It's always important to highlight the difference between conservatives and liberals," Minnery said. "The issue of marriage, the issue of sanctity of human life,... MORE >

FRC's Tony Perkins was on hand as Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed a new Arizona-like "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" into law during a private ceremony. Don Feder lays out the "10 Pillars of Patriotism." Judie Brown, founder of American Life League, is outraged that President Obama gave a rosary blessed by the Pope to Nancy Pelosi: "I'm horrified, because as a Catholic, I think it's sacrilegious for someone like Pelosi – who is allegedly a Catholic – to accept anything from a pro-abortion president, but specifically when...

On the most recent "CitizenLink Report" from Focus on the Family, Stuart Shepard and Bruce Hausknecht defended the recently vetoed legal discrimination bill in Arizona as nothing more than "an otherwise ordinary bill" that was badly misrepresented by gay activists. As Shepard explained, the push for gay rights will not stop until Christian are compelled to celebrate same-sex marriages under the force of law and Hausknecht agreed, saying that what gay activists ultimately seek is the "coerced acceptance of all of their actions, behaviors, and whatnot." "That... MORE >

Tom Minnery , head of Focus on the Family’s political arm CitizenLink, criticized Gov. Chris Christie for signing a bill barring the practice of ex-gay therapy on minors. He told Stuart Shepard that ex-gay therapy is “common and there is a history of them working well, many people have lost their confusion about sexuality as a result of them to the good.” Minnery also feared the society is making kids think they are gay when they are not, increasing the need for the discredited pseudo-scientific practice: “As society prides itself on putting homosexuality on a pedestal...

Earlier this month, just as the right-wing anti-mosque hysteria was getting whipped up, Focus on the Family posted a video in which Stuart Shepard and Bruce Hausknecht complained about how municipalities were discriminating against churches using zoning laws: Shepard: What does this tell us about the state of religious freedom in the United States? Hausknecht: Well, we're seeing first a hostility toward religion. You would think in this day and age of tolerance that there would be tolerance for religious views, religious people. There is not. We're seeing it in the zoning cases, we're seeing... MORE >
