Back in March, Maggie Gallagher wrote a column attacking the idea that marriage equality could be a way to foster economic growth for states and today she was the guest on "Wallbuilders Live" to discuss it. To kick things off, hosts David Barton and Rick Green mocked the idea, calling it "wacko on steroids" while Barton, of all people, demanded that we be "logical" about this before asserting that the Disney corporation lost money year after year when it supported gay rights and, once it reversed course, became profitable: Barton: So everything is about...

Patrick Vaughn, the American Family Association’s general counsel, on AFA Report attacked President Obama for meeting with the families of the victims of the September 11th attacks. Following the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden, Obama visited Ground Zero to honor the victims and met with victims’ families and local firefighters. Vaughn alleged that the President was “spiking the football at Ground Zero” and “feeling his oats” in a political stunt motivated by “calculated political gamesmanship.” Vaughn said: I think our leaders...

A few weeks back, Jim Garlow announced that, due to Newt Gingrich's possible presidential run, Gingrich and Rick Tyler had stepped down from their roles of leadership in Renewing American Leadership – leaving Garlow in control as Chairman, CEO & President. Ever since, the updates from ReAL have taken on an even more pronounced Religious Right tone, with Garolw announcing things like the formation of a ReAL prayer team and now sending out messages like this one from Vivian Berryhill, founder/president of the National Coalition of Pastors' Spouses, announcing that the "...

As part of the Religious Right’s burgeoning anti-union campaign, The Family Research Council’s Super PAC is entering the fight in Wisconsin in the contested Supreme Court race. FRC president Tony Perkins showed his support for the state’s embattled governor Scott Walker, tweeting, “Pro-family voters should celebrate WI victory b/c public & private sector union bosses have marched lock-step w/liberal social agenda.” Walker’s chief ally on the state Supreme Court, David Prosser, is now facing a serious challenge in the judicial election on April 5th....

A judge has blocked the Wisconsin law designed to strip unions of their collective bargaining rights. I am guessing that the polls showing that more than half of Americans support marriage equality will not get a lot of attention from the Religious Right. Guess what? Phyllis Schlafly doesn't know what she is talking about. Just so know you know, Herman Cain is the butter that rises to the top. Finally, quote of the day from Rep. Randy Forbes: “The most important thing that we want to establish is not whether or not you are a Christian, but we have to stop the... MORE
