On Wednesday, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon joined Sandy Rios to discuss his recent meeting with Donald Trump in New York. Wildmon said that in Trump’s private meeting with Religious Right leaders on Monday, the GOP candidate said if he were president, all of his Supreme Court and federal judicial nominees would oppose abortion rights and be vetted by the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group. Wildmon said that while Trump didn’t seem to “understand” the dangers to religious freedom posed by “the LGBT movement,” he... MORE

Earlier today, a deadlocked Supreme Court left in place a lower court decision blocking an Obama administration effort to grant temporary deportation relief to millions of immigrants. One group cheering on the decision was the Immigration Reform Law Institute, the legal arm of the anti-immigrant hate group Federation for American Immigration Reform, which declared, “IRLI will continue to work with patriotic state governments and grassroots activists to beat back the Administration’s drive to dissolve national sovereignty, the rule of law, and economic justice for America...

Among the Religious Right leaders meeting with Donald Trump on Tuesday was Rick Wiles, the far-right radio host who uses his daily “Trunews” program to push bizarre conspiracy theories and extremist screeds. Wiles said he was blown away by Trump’s appearance, hailing him as “a very humble man” and “very presidential.” “He talked and acted like a president,” he said. “Very respectful, very thoughtful. I, quite frankly, was very impressed by him as a person, as a man. Wiles added that Trump came across as a “calm, respectful,... MORE

On Tuesday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins chatted with Sandy Rios, who was guest-hosting his radio program, about the recent meeting between Donald Trump and Religious Right leaders. Perkins said that he is voting for Trump even though he isn’t very excited about it, arguing that “evangelicals have been under constant attack and marginalization by the policies of Barack Obama” and Trump will at least put an end to this anti-Christian persecution. Rios, the American Family Association official who, like Perkins, was a vocal supporter of Ted Cruz, added that... MORE

Eric Metaxas, a Christian Right radio host who has backed Donald Trump, spoke with radio host Mike Gallagher today about the meeting yesterday between Trump and hundreds of evangelical leaders, which he attended. Metaxas defended himself against criticism for supporting Trump, saying that if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, she will nominate judges who “legislate from the bench” and America as we know it will disappear. This election, he said, represents as critical a turning point as the Civil War or the American Revolution. “If you have Supreme Court justices... MORE

TheDove TV’s “Focus Today” show on Monday featured conservative commentator Josh Bernstein, who claimed that if Donald Trump's campaign would hire him, he could "guarantee" to get the presumptive GOP nominee a 20-point lead over Hillary Clinton by August 1, presumably through his brilliant plan to have Trump feature female speakers at the Republican National Convention in an effort to combat his sexist, racist image. Trump should "turn the convention into literally a Lifetime Channel type of convention,” Benstein advised. “I would have three... MORE

One legacy of the 2016 presidential campaign may well be a divide between religious and political conservatives who took a principled stance against the racist campaign of the apparently amoral Donald Trump, and those who jumped on board the Trump train in spite of his long record of lies, abusive and divisive rhetoric, and his shameless, transparently cynical use of religion to promote his candidacy. Those divides may be clarifying in the wake of Trump’s meeting with hundreds of religious conservative leaders on Tuesday in what organizers had laughably described as a nonpolitical... MORE
