Pat Robertson today endorsed a campaign to impeach Eric Holder because of the attorney general’s stance on marriage equality. “I really think the House should impeach Holder,” the 700 Club host said. “There should be a move of impeachment in the House and he should resign.” “What we’re seeing now more and more is the rights of homosexuals, the practice of homosexuality, sodomy, consensual sodomy, is being raised and elevated above the rights of religious believers and that is terrible,” he said, warning that gay rights is trampling on the First...

Texas congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Steve Stockman criticized the Obama administration’s position on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) during an interview yesterday with Religious Right talk show host Janet Mefferd. Stockman said the administration’s refusal to defend DOMA “undermines the whole concept of our country” and insisted that people “should have pickets” in Washington. “You’re really setting up for a dictatorship,” he said. “It’s really pretty frightening for the children and grandchildren down the road, this...

Mario Diaz of Concerned Women for America, still reeling from Virginia marriage equality advocates’ victory in federal court, warns in a blog post today that gay rights gains “are costing us our freedoms.” While Diaz doesn’t exactly explain what freedoms he lost when a judge struck down Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage, he writes that the “homosexual lobby” is “corroding our freedom.” He claims to be upset about a pro-marriage equality petition to the appeals court and insists that conservative groups would never ask people to sign a...

Anti-gay activist William Owens is pushing for the impeachment of Attorney General Eric Holder for “trampling the rule of law” by trying “to coerce states to fall in line with the same-sex ‘marriage’ agenda.” Holder recently said that state attorneys general are not obligated to defend discriminatory laws such as marriage bans that they deem unconstitutional.

While discussing the Grammys on Sunday’s edition of Truth That Transforms, Newcombe asked: “How low can we go?” “It’s as if we’ve gone as far as we can go now,” Rabe said, adding that he was offended that the wedding service included a church background and choir. Rabe said the ceremony was proof that we’re in “a culture under judgment,”... MORE

After a federal judge struck down part of Kentucky’s ban on same-sex marriage, Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Tea Party-aligned primary challenger Matt Bevin jumped on the ruling and criticized McConnell over his ties to the judge: I'm deeply disappointed in Judge Heyburn's decision to overturn Kentucky's right to determine the definition of marriage within its own borders. This type of judicial activism hurts America's democratic process. It is no surprise that Judge Heyburn was Mitch McConnell's general counsel and McConnell recommended him for the federal... MORE
