Right Wing Leftovers

  • In yesterday’s installment of Right Wing Leftovers we mentioned that Utah Eagle Forum President Gayle Ruzicka was opposing Equality Utah’s Common Ground Initiative which would extend some legal protections to same-sex couples, saying it was a slippery slope to undoing Utah’s anti-marriage amendment. But even authors of the amendment say the right-wingers are over-reacting because the amendment was “drafted very carefully to allow the extension of certain benefits.”
  • Tony Perkins’s latest video update is, not surprisingly, dedicated to bad-mouthing the stimulus bill.
  • The Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver blasts the Ninth Circuit’s DOMA ruling, calling it “an opinion of an activist judge based on nothing else than his personal bias is no law at all and [that it] commands no respect.”
  • The Eagle Forum is angry at Sen. Kay Hagen for voting against Sen. DeMint’s stimulus amendment, saying she has already turned “into a yes-woman for the intolerant secular-progressive forces in Washington.”
  • Gary Bauer warns Barack Obama that if his “actions lead to the obliteration of a U.S. city, the words ‘I screwed up’ won’t be enough.”
  • Did “angelic beings” save Ronald Reagan on not one, but two occasions? A new book says “yes, they did.”
  • Finally, Rick Warren was asked if he was surprised when he was asked to deliver the invocation at Barack Obama’s inauguration. He says it was entirely unexpected and that he “could name several dozen wonderful pastors who would have done a better job.” Yeah, so could we.
