As we noted yesterday, for the second consecutive election the right-wing effort to outlaw abortion in Colorado failed by a substantial margin. Twice the amendment has been put on the ballot and twice it has managed to secure less than 30% support. But organizers remain undeterred, annoucing that they "will never give up, no matter how long it takes" and comparing their efforts to the women's suffrage movement: From 1890 to 1918, women in South Dakota attempted many times to gain the right to vote. Their constitutional amendments failed to pass six times before they... MORE

When the right-wingers behind Colorado's effort to eliminate abortion back in 2008 received a mere 27% support, they proclaimed themselves encouraged by their showing and vowed to try again. Which they did this year, upping the ante by comparing abortion to slavery, President Obama to the Angel of Death, and choice to Nazism ... and this time they managed to secure a whopping 28% support en route to losing by a 3-1 margin. Which, of course, means they are planning trying again in the next election: Amendment 62 was defeated by a wide margin, but Keith Mason, head of the campaign,... MORE

I have to admit that I was a little surprised to see Vision America's Rick Scarborough show up on Joyce Meyer's television program yesterday, mainly because I had never really associated Meyer's with this sort of Religious Right activism. But judging by the discussion they had, it is pretty clear that she shares Scarborough's right-wing agenda, as the two discussed how important it is for Christians to vote in order to make sure that Godly men and women are writing our nation's laws instead of allowing Satan to pass laws aimed at silencing preachers, their fear that God will...

In 2008, the Family Research Council endorsed Joseph Cao for Congress: Today FRC Action PAC is endorsing Joseph Cao for Congress representing the second district of Louisiana. "Joseph Cao will be a true friend of the family. We need representatives who will fight to defend the family against the radical leadership in the House of Representatives," said Tony Perkins, President of FRC Action PAC. "I feel confident in Joseph Cao's ability to do just that. "Joseph Cao's amazing life story is a testament to the high-caliber Congressman he would be. The second district of... MORE

Last week we noted on James Dobson was practically begging Christians to get out and vote tomorrow in order to save America from certain destruction. Well, he is still hammering home that point and so has decided to dedicate his next two days to reminding his listeners of the importance of freedom ... and he is doing so by honoring the military on his program. And how is Dobson honoring the military, you ask? By running a speech recently delivered by Jerry Boykin: “God Bless America” is a beloved patriotic tune we might hum while watching fireworks or standing on the... MORE

Everybody knows that the Religious Right was dead-set against abortion and fought tooth-and-nail against health care reform on the grounds that it provided for taxpayer funded abortions. But it is also important to keep pointing out that it is not just abortion that FRC opposes, but birth control entirely: Is Fertility a "Pre-existing Condition?" Planned Parenthood certainly thinks so. That's why the country's biggest abortion provider is pushing to include free birth control as part of the new health care law. Making a change in the law would not only add billions... MORE

Mike McManus runs an organization called Marriage Savers, which he co-founded with his wife Harriet. As the name suggests, the organization's mission is to "increase the success of marriage, reduce divorce rates, and provide a better environment for children to thrive." And as that sort of mission would suggest, the organization is endorsed by Religious Right leaders like Tony Perkins, Don Wildmon, Mike Huckabee, Richard Land, and Robert George. Which makes this new column by McManus rather remarkable, because people on the Right generally don't give any credence to the claims... MORE
