Today, NPR ran a story on the tension between Tea Party activists who want to focus on economic and spending issues, and social conservatives who want the movement to take a stand on things like abortion and gay marriage. And, for some reason, NPR thought that a anti-gay, anti-Muslim bigot like the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer was the best person to make the case for the social conservatives: Morning Edition is taking a closer look at the groups that make up the Tea Party. Steve Inskeep talks to Toby Marie Walker, lead facilitator for the Waco Tea Party, and... MORE

It it too much to ask of the mainstream media that if they are going to quote the AFA's Bryan Fischer, that they mention his long history of making militantly anti-gay statements, especially when they are quoting him in an article relating to gay issues? Apparently, because Fischer's well-established hatred all of things gay didn't warrant even a passing mention in this USA Today article about how increasingly "gay relationships and gay families are portrayed as just like other families" in movies and television: It's a landscape that many Americans still don't accept. Such... MORE

For the last few weeks, we've been chronicling Chuck Colson's plan to raise up a nationwide opposition to gay marriage in an attempt to sway the Supreme Court by demonstrating that Americans will not tolerate any decision that recognizes marriage equality. And he is still at it, again making it the focus of his newest "Two Minute Warning" video. In this one, Colson says that Republicans have taken social conservatives for granted for too long and this year are trying to downplay social issues in order to focus on economic issues as a winning election strategy. That is... MORE

You have to give Bob Allen and Associated Baptist Press credit for this tremendous article which so perfect exposes the hypocrisy that Religious Right leaders keep offering up as they seek to justify their fight against the "Ground Zero Mosque" - leaders like Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission: "I take a back seat to no one when it comes to religious freedom and religious belief and the right to express that belief, even beliefs that I find abhorrent," said Land, the denomination's top representative on moral,...

For all the flag-waving Tea Party placards accusing the Obama administration of unconstitutional acts and treason, it seems that threats of revolution against the constitutional republic of the United States are coming mostly from the right wing – and not just from fringe militia groups. We recently noted that Religious Right activist Chuck Colson has launched an effort to bully the Supreme Court into opposing marriage equality by threatening that a pro-equality ruling would result in “cultural Armageddon.” And we have noted the American Family Association’s Bryan...

Last week we noted how Chuck Colson had come up with a plan, in the wake of the Prop 8 ruling, to prevent the Supreme Court from ruling in favor of gay marriage: build a groundswell of opposition to the idea for the sole purpose of convincing that Supreme Court that any ruling recognizing the right to marriage equality will not be accepted by the people. And that is exactly what he is setting out to do, saying in this new video that "of course, the Justices will listen to legal arguments, they'll weigh the precedents, but in the final analysis they will not approve gay marriage if...

When Elena Kagan was first nominated to the Supreme Court, rumors swirled that she was a lesbian, which was more than enough evidence for Byran Fischer, who declared that all gays are biased, deviant borderline pedophiles who do not belong in public office. So take just one guess how he is responding to the Prop 8 ruling: Although almost no other organizations other than the American Family Association are making an issue of this, Judge Walker should have recused himself from this case since he is a practicing homosexual. This created a clear conflict of interest, and he had no business... MORE
