Earlier this month, Mike Huckabee joined American Family Radio host Dan Celia at Grove Avenue Baptist Church in Richmond, Virginia, where he was asked about the “twisted ideology” allegedly destroying the U.S. military. Huckabee, who has previously pledged to restore Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and defended a ban on trans service members, denounced Obama administration efforts to permit open service by LGBT troops. “The morale in our military has never been lower,” Huckabee said. “Among our service men and women, there is a great sense of discouragement...

Family Research Council Tony Perkins, in an apparent reference to policy changes allow openly gay and transgender people to serve in the U.S. military, said yesterday that the military is facing recruiting challenges because “they’ve turned it into a parade that looks like the bar scene in Star Wars.” Perkins, hosting his daily “Washington Watch” radio program, took a call from a listener who suggested that the U.S. should ban immigration from “the 57 Arabic nations” in order to keep out “jihadi-ists.” While Perkins didn’t address...

During his remarks at the Pentagon’s celebration of LGBT Pride Month on Tuesday, Brig. Gen. Randy S. Taylor, who has served in the Army for 27 years, introduced his husband to attendees. Predictably, Taylor’s remarks and other speeches by LGBT service members did not go over well with the far-right, including talk show host Michael Savage, who on Tuesday blasted the Pride event and even managed to draw a connection to ISIS. “So this is the world we’re living in,” Savage sighed. “This is what Obama has done to America, this is what he has done to the...

Pat Robertson, who has long been deeply troubled by the presence of gay people in the military, claimed today that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has “turned the tables” and made Christians in the military the real victims of oppression. “‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ used to refer to gays in the military, now it could apply to Christians in uniform,” he said. Following a “700 Club” segment by Christian Broadcasting Network reporter Chuck Holton on chaplains who claim that they are facing pressure not to condemn... MORE

BarbWire content editor Gina Miller is angry that James Foley’s family asked anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller to pull advertisements in New York that featured images of Foley’s execution, writing that Foley’s family are “the ones who are blasting her ads as they slavishly bow to the tenets of Muslim Sharia law.” Miller claims extremist groups like ISIS are the true representatives of Islam, which she describes as “a satanic, militant-political ideology couched in a religion.” She adds that “Barack Obama (or whatever his name is)” has...

On her radio show today, Mission America head Linda Harvey lamented the presence of military service members and Boy Scouts in LGBT pride parades. The anti-LGBT activist called openly gay service members and scouts an “insult” to their peers, bad role models and most likely child predators. Is anyone who insists on open homosexual behavior in our military the kind of soldier we need? I don’t think so. And here’s the basic issue: no one needs to be doing this behavior in the first place. It’s an insult to fellow soldiers, and in a Boy Scout situation, it’... MORE

Former congressman Allen West is peeved that a veteran who was kicked out of the military because she is gay had her discharge status upgraded to “honorable discharge,” making her eligible for veterans benefits. While the military has a review board which handles requests to change discharge statuses, West seems to think the move to change the gay former service member’s status is without precedent and even suggests that opening health care benefits to gay veterans will harm other veterans. He blames the decision on “an executive order repealing the ‘Don’t... MORE
