Perkins Cheers Texas National Guard

“Major General John Nichols, the commanding general of Texas Military Forces, made it clear that the state’s marriage law came first. If Guardsmen want to take advantage of the Pentagon’s directive, Nichols said they’d have to enroll at a federal installation. In a letter to local service members, he stood his ground on the Texas Constitution, which only recognizes man-woman ...

Today’s Money Beg From The FRC

“Dear Joe, This month, tens of millions of American young people will head back to government-run schools. And many will receive mediocre education. Yes, there are many dedicated teachers who want to do the right thing, but the system works against them. And worse, leftist political and spiritual indoctrination is the norm in most school systems. Your donation is especially ...

Tony Perkins On That Rasmussen Poll

“Rasmussen Reports found a shocking amount of consensus on the question of businesses’ rights in the marriage debate. ‘If a Christian wedding photographer who has deeply held religious beliefs opposing same-sex marriage is asked to work a same-sex wedding ceremony, 85% of Americans believe he has the right to say no.’ Only 8% disagree. That’s as unanimous as it gets ...

Tony Perkins Slams ENDA Backers

“How many of you would feel comfortable dropping off your kids in a school that encouraged faculty cross-dressing? At least three Senate Republicans would. Today, those leaders — Sens. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and Lisa Murkowski (R-Ak.) — threw their support behind a bill that would force sexual confusion on almost every classroom, day care, and summer camp ...

Tony Perkins Vs Politifact

Politifact ripped to shreds Tony Perkins’ claim on Face The Nation that business are being forced to serve gay customers. We didn’t find cases where people were forced to participate against their will. However, if vendors refuse service, there are consequences. There are 21 states that forbid discrimination based on sexual orientation. Vendors who refuse service there could face legal ...

Tony Perkins On Seattle Pride Incident

“The ugly side of ‘tolerance’ was on full display last weekend in Seattle when a mob at the city’s ‘gay pride’ event ganged up on two Christian street preachers and brutally attacked them. As FRC knows all too well, this isn’t the first time homosexual activists have used violence to try to silence and intimidate Christians. Apart from the August ...

FRC: Our Marriage Fight Has Just Begun

“By a single vote, five unelected justices determined that they know better than God and struck at the heart of marriage in America. It was a powerful rebuke of a law FRC helped develop, the Defense of Marriage Act, but not the final blow. Fortunately, conservative leaders across our country aren’t about to let that happen. In interview after interview, ...

FRC Cheers Voting Rights Act Ruling

“There will no longer be a special category for these 15 states — many of which are now at the forefront of elected minorities! From now on, these regions will have the same equal opportunity to define their voting laws as anyone else. For too long, states like Alabama, which brought the lawsuit, have been prisoners of history. Instead of ...

Perkins Stands By Vow To Defy SCOTUS

“After months of holding our breath, the two sides of the marriage debate will finally be able to exhale when the U.S. Supreme Court finally rules on the institution next week. The decisions, two of the biggest in our lifetimes, may fundamentally alter marriage in law, but regardless of the outcome, no court can ever alter marriage. This week, 211 ...

In anticipation of the coming Supreme Court rulings, a coalition of Christianist and anti-gay hate groups have jointly issued yet another blah blah fucking blah blah declaration that they will never bow to Obama’s police state and obey laws regarding same-sex marriage.

Quote Of The Day – Sen. Ted Cruz

“I am thankful for the support of my colleagues in passing amendments that are important to the State of Texas and the entire country, prioritizing the needs of our servicemen and women who daily sacrifice their lives to promote and defend our nation’s freedom.

Tony Perkins Attacks ENDA

“After two decades of debate, the legislation has new legs under President Obama, who said earlier in the month that the Senate needs to get the measure ‘done now.’ Like most liberals, Harry Reid disguises the bill as an anti-discrimination policy when in fact, the bill itself discriminates against men and women who oppose cross-dressing or blatant homosexuality on the ...

Today’s Prayer List From The FRC

This weekend the Family Research Council would like all Christians to pray that soldiers are allowed to abuse gay troops in the name of Jesus, that the Supreme Court rejects same-sex marriage, that the Boy Scouts fall apart, and that self-hating gay people become brainwashed. And also, apparently, that there will be more scandals for the Obama administration.

Perkins Cheers Rep. John Fleming

“President Obama can’t veto the First Amendment, so he’s doing the next best thing: refusing to let his troops exercise it. In his most combative move yet, the administration warned Congress yesterday that it strongly opposes Rep. John Fleming’s religious freedom amendment, which sailed through the House Armed Services Committee with bipartisan support. Now, the administration is taking its spite ...

Tony Perkins Cheers Amendment To Allow Harassment Of Gay Service Members

“Fortunately, Congress is as frustrated with the hypocrisy as the rest of us. Yesterday, thanks a marathon mark-up on the Defense Authorization bill, sleepy members didn’t make it home until 2 a.m.– in part because they were so intent on passing a series of religious protections. Rep. John Fleming (R-La.), the author of one such amendment, urged his colleagues to ...
