Right Wing Leftovers

  • Yesterday we posted a video from Rob Schenck reporting that Focus on the Family’s new chief lobbyist, Tim Goeglein, would be working out of Faith and Action’s offices.  Maybe Schenck said too much, because the video has now been yanked.
  • Rick Scarborough is not happy with efforts to do away with the moment of silence in Texas schools, saying “my prayer is that kids will have sense enough to know they need help from above.”
  • Elaine Donnelly continues her one-woman crusade to save Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
  • Utah Eagle Forum President Gayle Ruzicka opposes efforts to grant rights to domestic partners, saying “We’re not going to fall into that trap. I don’t want to take my chances.”
  • Mike Huckabee has got nothing on Bobby Jindal.
  • Apparently, Barack Obama mentioned non-believers in his remarks today at the National Prayer Breakfast.  Will the Right freak-out again?
  • Just a reminder that while the Religious Right doesn’t like gays and abortion, they have a much wider agenda which includes things like fighting alcohol sales on Sundays.
  • Finally, Richard Cizik has been laying low ever since losing his job with the National Association of Evangelicals, but he re-surfaced yesterday when he delivered thousands of petitions to the President and Congressional leaders calling on them to “act quickly to ensure the future of our planet and generations to come.”
