MassResistance head Brian Camenker is furious that several corporations are sponsoring a youth summit organized by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN). The Religious Right activist told WorldNetDaily yesterday that the companies are supporting “massively destructive and offensive things.” Earlier this week, Camenker's group issued a report warning of GLSEN’s “radical homosexual and transgender psychological propaganda” in schools: “It has set up ‘gay straight alliance’ student clubs (GSAs) inside thousands of high...

Rick Santorum Is Angry The 'Academic Progressive Elitist Left' Wants To 'Ram All This Stuff Down Our Throat And We Just Take It'

After insisting that his false predictions about the Lawrence v. Texas decision actually came true, Rick Santorum told conservative radio host Lars Larson last week that it is time the right-wing “majority” demand schools require Bible instruction in the classroom. “We are the majority, the people who believe in the [conservative] values you were just talking about are the majority of people in this country, but we’ve allowed the elite, the academic progressive elitist left to ram all this stuff down our throat and we just take it,” Santorum said. “We need...

Glenn Beck Wants The Bible Taught In Public Schools Because It Has Been 'The Only Textbook We Needed'

Glenn Beck has been on a kick recently hailing the Bible as the solution to every single one of our nation's problems, so it comes as no surprise to see him now throwing his support behind an effort led by Hobby Lobby president Steve Green to get the Bible taught in public schools all over the nation. Hailing the Green family as "true Americans" during his morning meeting, Beck turned directly to the camera and urged viewers to shop at Hobby Lobby in order to support them because "these people are the best." On last night's television program, Beck then interviewed... MORE

When the Obama administration proposed last month an in increase in funding to states that “would be distributed to local school districts and other partner providers” that offer pre-school programs, CNS News editor-in-chief Terry Jeffrey responded by accusing President Obama of “federalizing 4-year-olds” and putting them in the “custody of government employees.” Yesterday, Jeffrey took his over-the-top claims of forced pre-schooling and government indoctrination to The Janet Mefferd Show, where he said pre-school and the entire public school system...

SUBMITTED BY: Brian Tashman, Friday 02/14/2014, 2:25pm
During the controversy over Hobby Lobby’s refusal to provide its employees with contraception insurance coverage and the outrage over Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s being denied his supposed constitutional right to appear on television, we witnessed conservative activists stretch the limits of the meaning of religious freedom. As Justice Scalia put it in Employment Division v. Smith, such an exaggerated view of religious freedom serves “to make the professed doctrines of religious belief superior to the law of the land, and in effect to permit every citizen to become a...

WorldNetDaily commentator Patrice Lewis is fearful that Common Core, with its “brainwashing” and “indoctrination techniques,” is bringing Nazism to America. According to Lewis, a biology teacher she heard about from a friend is telling her students to “sing a song praising Common Core,” which makes the teacher just like Hitler. Lewis adds that a public school is like a totalitarian “jail” that turns students into “zombies.” Some friends came to us this week, troubled, to ask our advice. It seems their youngest son came home from... MORE

Laurie Higgins of the American Family Association-affiliated Illinois Family Institute is a big fan of Russia’s “gay propaganda” law, and she writes today that the United States should impose a similar law here in order to restrict the work of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). She claims that GLSEN is behind the “censorship” of anti-gay views, because apparently bigotry is needed in schools for the sake of balance, and urges the US to adopt a Russia-style propaganda law in order to curb GLSEN’s “totalitarian” grip over...
