The American Decency Association is still reeling from President Obama’s executive order barring federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT employees, warning that under his administration “homosexuality trumps religious liberty.” “There is no good news in our government affirming a lifestyle that leads to destruction,” writes Lisa Van Houten of the ADA in a recent post on the organization’s website. “As greater discrimination and even persecution comes, may you and I not bow to Nebuchadnezzar, but stand for what is faithful and true....

Sandy Rios was horrified by President Obama’s decision to sign an executive worker ensuring that federal contractors don’t discriminate against LGBT employees, and had a stark message for her listeners on her Tuesday radio program: “That means of course that maybe in six weeks or so maybe your doorbell will ring and you will have the privilege of being interviewed by an FBI agent male wearing a dress, because that’s really what this does mean, this is stunning.” Rios, the American Family Association’s government affairs director, alleged that Obama is a...

After lecturing liberals on why they are wrong to fault the United States for slavery, former Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land drew a connection between the rise of gay rights and Nazi Germany. While guest-hosting yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” Land spoke with Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes about President Obama’s recent executive order to protect employees of federal government contractors from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. He told Starnes that conservatives need to stand up to “the gay... MORE

Last week, it was announced that President Obama would be signing a executive order banning discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees by federal contractors and Gordon Klingenschmitt is predictably outraged, declaring on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program that these sorts of anti-discrimination bans are nothing more than tyrannical anti-Christian persecution. "I think this is outright tyranny," he said. "And it's a demonic spirit of persecution, it's anti-Christian persecution ... We should have a First Amendment right to opt out... MORE

The Family Research Council is once again responding to polls showing widespread support for gay rights by making up their own anti-gay fuzzy math. In his daily email update on Friday, FRC President Tony Perkins wrote that the Republican House leaders who oppose the Employment Non-Discrimination Act are “more in line with the majority of Americans” than is President Obama, who supports the act. Perkins cited a Huffington Post poll, which he says found that “only 50% of Americans support an ENDA-type” law, which he claims “gives preference to homosexuals and... MORE

President Obama has reportedly decided to sign an executive order to bar federal government contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The news did not sit well with Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council. In a statement on behalf of the FRC today, Sprigg warns that the executive order will undermine “religious and constitutional liberties” and lead to a flood of lawsuits. This political gesture reflects the president's repeated disregard for the legislative process. Congress has not passed the Employment Non-Discrimination... MORE

With right-wing opposition to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) becoming increasingly unhinged, it was no surprise that Family Research Council president Tony Perkins warned members in an email today that ENDA would destroy businesses, entire communities, and the First Amendment. Perkins writes that ENDA, which would add sexual orientation and gender identity to current non-discrimination protections such as race, religion, gender and disability, would “banish” Christians from society and have them “stripped of their livelihood” while turning America into...
