Cary Gordon of Iowa’s Cornerstone World Outreach has continued to make waves with his anti-gay diatribes. Gordon was heavily involved with the successful effort to remove three Iowa Supreme Court justices who ruled in favor of marriage equality in 2009, and just last week he told a rally hosted by Bob Vander Plaats that like Rome, “we too will be extinguished from the earth” as a result of civil rights for gays and lesbians.

The Family Leader, the anti-gay Iowa group led by Bob Vander Plaats, held a rally in Des Moines earlier this week to demand a referendum to overturn the 2009 State Supreme Court decision which established marriage equality. Roy Moore of the Foundation for Moral Law said that marriage equality was bringing about a “moral meltdown,” and another speaker claimed that supporters of gay-rights “hijacked” the civil rights movement and declared that “deviant behavior is not the same as being denied your right to vote.” Cary Gordon of Cornerstone World Outreach...

George Lavender introduced his blatantly unconstitutional bill to eliminate legal abortion as the state legislature considers legislation that would allow residents to purchase license plates to fund anti-choice crisis pregnancy centers. Moreover, the legislature just passed a bill that would require women to look at a medically unnecessary and potential unsafe ultrasound before terminating their pregnancy. Other states are considering similar bans on... MORE

Like other groups such as Focus on the Family, the California Family Council, Mission America, and the Family Research Council, the so-called Protect Kids Foundation claims that gay-rights proponents “indoctrinating kids to accept and adopt LGBT lifestyles, starting in kindergarten.” David Barton, the head of WallBuilders, himself said that public school students “are getting...
