Tony Perkins, the president of the FRC, even said it was an attempt to “censor” Christians. After Apple dropped out of the CGBG, which was previously known as the Christian Values Network, McCullough told The Christian Post, “We're not asking Apple to... MORE

So much for that. It turns out that the recent Traditional Values Coalition attacks on wasteful spending were totally misleading. Who would have guessed? Looks like the next Awakening conference will be in Florida instead of at Liberty U. Bryan Fischer defends Rick Perry. Finally, quote of the day from Gary Bauer: "Men and women of faith cannot sit on the sidelines... MORE

In early 2010, Lisa Miller kidnapped her daughter and fled the country in order to avoid a court order telling her to hand over her daughter to her former partner due to her repeated refusal to abide by custody arrangements. For years, Miller had been represented in court by lawyers at Liberty Counsel who worked to turn this new-found "ex-gay" Christian into a Religious Right cause célèbre. At least until Miller disappeared, at which point Liberty Counsel went silent and started frantically trying to wash its hands of its involvement, which made sense considering... MORE

Yesterday we noted that executives of the American Family Association had attended a Home Depot board meeting to inform the company that Christians would boycott their stores until they decided to drop their support for equality and diversity and "remain neutral in the culture war." According to the AFA, Home Depot basically told them to take a hike ... and today Bryan Fischer, the AFA's official spokesbigot, conducted an interview with an anonymous fourteen year Home Depot employee named "Robert" who alleged that there is a culture of intimidation and...

For months, the American Family Association has been running a boycott against Home Depot because the company "has chosen to sponsor and participate in numerous gay pride parades and festivals." Today, the AFA's Executive Vice President, Buddy Smith, traveled to a Home Deport board meeting to present the company with a petition bearing nearly a half-million names of those who have vowed to stop shopping at Home Deport stores until the company decides to "remain neutral in the culture war." But according to this update Smith gave to Bryan Fischer today, it sounds like the... MORE
