Ryan T. Anderson: Love Does Not Equal Love

“Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day. But that doesn’t mean that marriage and family are flourishing. A mistaken understanding of romantic love — the Hallmark and Hollywood version — has, unfortunately, undermined key aspects of committed marital love, and the consequences have been dire. Gays and lesbians, obviously, are not to blame for this. Heterosexuals are. Heterosexuals who …

Ryan Anderson: It’s Easier For Gays To Come Out Than It Is For Christians To Come Out As Anti-Gay

“The day of the Obergefell decision, the White House was lit up in rainbow colors. Every prominent member of the Democratic Party is in favor of LGBT legislation. Most prominent, 89 percent of the Fortune 500 countries, voluntarily have enacted these protections. “If you are a conservative Evangelical at a major law firm or at an Ivy League university, you …

Ryan Anderson: Houston’s LGBT Rights Law Would Impose “Ruinous Liability” On Anti-Gay Christians

“HERO would impose new, and potentially ruinous liability on innocent citizens for alleged ‘discrimination’ based not on objective traits, but on subjective and unverifiable identities. HERO would further increase government interference in markets, potentially discouraging economic growth and job creation. And, as to issues surrounding ‘gender identity’ and ‘transgender’ teachers, students and employees, HERO could require education and employment policies …

Heritage Foundation: Commies Love Gay Marriage

According to Heritage Foundation nutjob Paul Kengor, nobody is happier about the Obergefell ruling than the Communist Party USA. “One thing that very few Americans saw, including the millions of same-sex marriage supporters who aren’t especially political or ideological, was the quite revealing celebration among some really radical quarters. Among them, Communist Party USA and its publication, People’s World—successor to …

In a cutesy clip posted today by the Heritage Foundation, anti-gay Washington state florist Barronelle Stutzman flatly declares that she did not break the law when she refused to serve a gay couple.

Trump Snubs Heritage Foundation Event

All of the GOP presidential field will be bowing and scraping before the talibangelicals of the Heritage Foundation today. All of them EXCEPT Donald Trump, who just canceled his appearance for “business reasons.” As I’ve reported multiple times in recent weeks, fundamentalists are becoming much more open in their opposition to Trump, who repeatedly lobs platitudes about the bible being …

Ryan T. Anderson: Blame SCOTUS For Kim Davis

“Ms. Davis didn’t cause this problem. The Supreme Court did. When the court ruled in June that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right, it redefined marriage for the nation, in a way that I and many others do not believe was constitutionally justified. And it redefined Ms. Davis’s job. Had same-sex marriage come to Kentucky through the Legislature, lawmakers could …

Ryan Anderson Backs FADA

“The First Amendment Defense Act would prevent the federal government from discriminating against any citizen or organization because they believe marriage is the union of husband and wife. It would ensure that no federal agency will ever revoke non-profit tax-exempt status or deny grants, contracts, accreditation, or licenses to individuals or institutions for following their belief that marriage is a …

The new book by Heritage Foundation spokes-hater Ryan T. Anderson has launched on Amazon. From the product recap: Attacks on religious liberty–predicated on the bogus equation of opposition to same-sex marriage with racism–have already begun, and modest efforts in Indiana and other states to protect believers’ rights have met with hysterics from media and corporate elites.

Ryan Anderson Celebrates Hate Bills

Anderson writes for the Heritage Foundation: Earlier today, the North Carolina House voted to override the veto of S.B. 2, a bill that protects the religious liberty of civil servants in that state. Because the Senate had already voted to override the veto as well, the bill is now law. This is good public policy, and it is a shame …

Yesterday the Heritage Foundation questioned demonstrators outside the Supreme Court, asking their opinion about GoFundMe’s cancellation of the fundraising page of the Oregon bakers.

Ryan T. Anderson: We’re Gonna Win

Anderson writes for the Heritage Foundation: Oral arguments at the Supreme Court today were fascinating. Over two and a half hours of discussion about whether the Constitution requires all 50 states to treat same-sex relationships as marriages highlighted one essential truth: There are good policy arguments on both sides of the marriage debate and the Constitution doesn’t take sides in …
