Heritage Foundation Wails: Trump’s Religious Order Is A “Mere Shadow” Of Promised Anti-LGBT Crackdown

Anti-LGBT activist Ryan T. Anderson wails for the Heritage Foundation: President Donald Trump said he’d promote commonsense policies that would “Make America Great Again” and would stand up to politically correct bullying from the left. So why isn’t he doing that in the case of religious freedom? Twice now, he has failed to stand up for commonsense policy on religious …

Ryan Anderson: Gays Wouldn’t Need Marriage If You’d Just Invite Them Over During The Holidays [VIDEO]

“The question is going to be, if we’re not in favor of same-sex marriage, what ARE we in favor of for people with same-sex attractions and how are we helping them live out their vocations? There’s a universal human desire for friendship, for companionship. We all have a need for relationships that matter. So when Thanksgiving comes around, when Christmas …

Ryan Anderson: Georgia’s License To Discriminate Bill Actually Protects The Rights Of Minorities

Ryan Anderson writes for the Heritage Foundation: Last Friday, the Georgia Senate passed a good bill that protects religious freedom in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s redefinition of marriage.

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 T. Anderson: Protecting LGBT Americans From Discrimination “Tramples” The Rights Of Christians

Anti-gay activist Ryan T. Anderson has published yet another anti-LGBT screed for the Heritage Foundation.

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 …

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 …

Stop Silencing Ryan Anderson!

Two days ago Heritage Foundation spokesman Ryan Anderson declared victory over the review “trolls” at Amazon when his new anti-gay book hit #1 in a niche category nobody had ever heard of.

Ryan T. Anderson: The Book

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. Anderson tells the stories …

Ryan T. Anderson Has The Sadz

“Today is a significant setback for all Americans who believe in the Constitution, the rule of law, democratic self-government, and marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The Court got it wrong: it should not have mandated all 50 states to redefine marriage. This is judicial activism: nothing in the Constitution requires the redefinition of marriage, and …

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.
