I've written several posts already about Religious Right groups fighting back against the Southern Poverty Law Center's updated list of anti-gay hate groups, so I guess I should also note that not everyone on the list is upset about. In fact, Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church is on the list and he openly admits that he "absolutely" hates gays: Tucked in a Tempe strip mall sits the Faithful Word Baptist Church . The church is not new and the controversy surrounding the beliefs of its leader are not new. However, a report released Wednesday by the Southern Poverty... MORE

After Republican and Religious Right leaders clamored over who was more outraged about 11 seconds of video in the Smithsonian’s new “Hide/Seek” exhibit, censorship advocates now not only want the Smithsonian to remove the video in question (which they have) but to close the whole exhibit. Georgia Republican Congressman Jack Kingston, who earlier called for congressional investigations into the Smithsonian, told the rightwing website CNSNews that while the museum’s removal of artist David Wojnarowicz video was a “positive” step, he does not think the...

Dozens of Religious Right leaders have come together to sign on to a letter [PDF] released under the Freedom Federation banner calling on the Senate to put off any vote on repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell until the next session of Congress so that there can be investigations into whether the findings of the recent report showing DADT could be repealed with little to no risk was, in fact, the result of a "climate of not-so-subtle intimidation in the Pentagon" that lead to the It is a serious risk to national security to repeal DADT without first investigating thoroughly –...

If you think the Religious Right is over the fact that the Southern Poverty Law Center has added several new organizations to its list of anti-gay hate groups, think again. Even though pretty much every group mentioned in the report has already weighed in to voice their outrage, activists continue to blast the SPLC, with the AFA of Pennsylvania accusing them of "attempting to silence" Christians and WorldNetDaily's Joseph Farah calling them a "marginal, fringe, extremist organization." But the latest response from National Organization for Marriage really takes the cake,... MORE

A few weeks back, we noted that Religious Right activists in Texas were lining-up against Texas House Speaker Joe Straus and that the campaign had started to take on religious overtones as activists openly sought to replace Straus, who is Jewish, with a true "Christian conservative." David Barton has been deeply involved in this effort and he even produced a six minute video outlining the reasons that Straus needs to be removed. Starting at the 2:20 mark, Barton claims that the campaign against Straus is in no way rooted in antisemitism: Also not surprisingly, liberals... MORE

Just when you think you have pretty much heard every possible explanation as to why people ought to say "Merry Christman" instead of things like "Happy Holidays," some Religious Right activist comes up with a new reason you could not possibly have anticipated ... like the fact that you have to say "Merry Christmas" if you want to be patriotic: In 1870 Christmas was DESIGNATED a Federal Holiday by Congress and signed into law by President Grant. Christmas is described as, not just a Federal Holiday, but a "Christian" Federal Holiday! (Google "U.S... MORE
