As we have said time and time and time again, David Barton may be a lot of things, but he is not a historian. Of course, that has not stopping people like Mike Huckabee from routinely hailing Barton as "the single best historian in America today." So I imagine it will come as quite a surprise to the Religious Right to learn that Barton does not consider himself to be a historian, as he explained on an episode of "Face to Face" with Oral Roberts University President Mark Rutland: Barton: I really kind of do a whole lot of all of it, but I don't consider myself a...

With the emergence of the Stop SB 48 Coalition, which seeks to overturn the California law that makes sure textbooks include prominent LGBT historical figures by referendum, Religious Right activists have been stepping up their rhetoric against the new law. Larry Jacobs, the Vice President and Managing Director of the right-wing World Congress of Families, told the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow that the LGBT-inclusive law represents “a Nazi state or a communist type of way of dealing with an issue”: Larry Jacobs of the World Congress of Families expects...

Rebecca Hagelin, James Dobson’s co-host on Family Talk, has proclaimed that the “culture challenge of the week” is to stop “intimidation and homosexual marriage.” Hagelin wrote in the Washington Times Sunday, “It has long been the goal of homosexual activists and the Hollywood elite to destroy the timeless truths of marriage, of family and of purity.” She adds that gay rights advocates are acting “like the bully on the playground” by using the media and schools to “ridicule” their opponents. Hagelin writes: Our present... MORE

Save California’s Randy Thomasson told conservative radio talk show host Janet Mefferd yesterday that Americans may need to have a new revolution to block a new California law that makes sure history textbooks include historic LGBT figures. Thomasson, who has likened homosexuality to drunk driving and drug abuse, said that “homosexual activists want children” and accordingly “the Democrat governor gave the homosexual activists the brains of children.” He went on to say that “we’re declaring independence” just like the colonists during the...

Writing for the ultraconservative Crisis magazine, Kevin Ryan of Boston University’s Center for the Advancement of Ethics and Character is outraged over the recently signed California law that makes sure textbooks cover important LGBT historical figures. Ryan said that the policy has a “distinct Stalinist odor” that will bolster the “gay agenda.” But Ryan has a way to respond to the new textbook law: abolish public schools. “Eliminate state-run public schools,” Ryan writes, “make a transition to one of the many school choice options” like...

Ever since the media started examining reports that the clinic operated by Michele Bachmann's husband Marcus practices "ex-gay therapy," the Religious Right has been in a tizzy and come rushing to their defense. So it was no surprise to see Bryan Fischer doing his part, though in this case it was Dr. Tim Rampey (who, oddly, was promoted as the author of "America Fooled: The Truth About Antidepressants, Antipsychotics And How We've Been Deceived," though the book cover says it was written by "Dr. Timothy Scott") who reached out to Fischer and offered to come on to...

As Brian mentioned in the last post, the Religious Right is none-too-pleased about the passage of a bill that would make sure textbooks recognize the contributions of prominent LGBT figures in California history. So it was no surprise that it was a topic of discussion on today's broadcast of the AFA Report where Ed Vitagliano said that gay men are "abusing the nature of the design of the human body" while Jeremy Wiggins was outraged that they would allow such things into school before comparing gay sex to using a screwdriver to open paint cans: Vitagliano: Our perspective...
