Right Wing Round-Up

  • Pam offers up some choice quotes from Minnesota Family Council and its allies as they seek to introduce an amendment banning same-sex marriage, civil unions and domestic partnerships in the state, including the claim that “if everyone is a gay, this world will cease to exist in 10 years,” and warnings that “this as a pivotal issue to life, not just for our nation but the life we have known for 3,000 years.”
  • In her latest FundamentaList, Sarah Posner notes that the honeymoon may be over for Obama and evangelical “centrists.”
  • Holy Bullies juxtaposes Matt Barber’s anti-gay rantings against more objective, rational views regarding the well-being of children raised by gay parents.
  • Finally, Salon ran an excerpt of a new book by Kevin Roose entitled “The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner’s Semester at America’s Holiest University” about the author’s semester at Liberty University where he traveled to Florida for spring break in order to participate in some “cold-turkey evangelism ” which he says “provides the shortest, most non-committal conversion offer of any Western religion.”
