Star Spangled Sunday

Aided by Sen. Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, and the Benham brothers, the Family Research Council is glomming onto the bicentennial of the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner as one of those times that Jesus saved America. Did you know that America has seen darker days in the past than those we are facing right now? 200 years ago we were …

Perkins Praises Pennsylvania Bakery

“At Pennsylvania’s Cake Pros shop, they’re pros at more than baking. Lorraine Fleming knew the day might come when she’d have to stand up for her beliefs on marriage. And this month, it did. Like the bridal shop just a few hours down the road, Cake Pros was the target of an underground movement to expose and torment businesses with …

Perkins Cheers Defeat Of Billings Bill

“It was well after 3:00 a.m., but to people in Billings, Montana, it was never too late to stand up to the forces of political correctness. Thanks to Mayor Tom Hanel, that’s exactly what the largest city in the state did — beating back a dangerous bathroom bill that would have literally opened the doors of Billings’s public showers, locker …

Tony Perkins: Christians Should Tell Gay Customers That Their Money Is Going to “Ex-Gay” Torture Clinics

Ian Silverstone writes at Right Wing Watch: For conservatives, non-discrimination laws are another nail in the coffin of religious freedom. On Monday’s “Washington Watch,” host Tony Perkins lamented how increasingly difficult it is for Christian business owners to actively discriminate against and refuse service to LGBT people or same-sex couples based on their “religious views on sexuality.” Perkins said that …

Tony Perkins On The PA Bridal Shop

“Obviously, W.W. Bridal Boutique isn’t the only wedding dress shop in town. These women could have easily taken their business elsewhere — but chose to retaliate instead. That’s because, at its core, this isn’t about accommodation. It’s about forced acceptance. When religious liberty clashes with homosexuality — as it has from bakeries to flower shops — the storylines are all …

Tony Perkins On The Sixth Circuit Court

“Unfortunately, conservatives aren’t just fighting the courts for their right to decide the issue — they’re also fighting a massive PR push from deep-pocketed activists who are desperate to normalize same-sex ‘marriage.’ Their campaign is hitting a fever pitch in places like Missouri, where groups like Show Me Marriage are doing their best to bring voters’ beliefs in line with …

Tony Perkins Has The Virginia Sadz

“The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit yesterday became the second federal appeals court to declare that a state (in this case, Virginia) defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman violates the U.S. Constitution. The three-judge panel divided 2-1, with the majority declaring that ‘the fundamental right to marry encompasses the right to same-sex …

Perkins: Ask Jesus To Stop Those Gays

From today’s Family Research Council “Prayer Target”: Beginning of the ENDA – President Obama signed an executive order Monday to protect “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees from discrimination by companies that do federal government work.” Tony Perkins commented, “mandating that all federal contractors and subcontractors — regardless of their religious and moral convictions — give special treatment to homosexuals, …

FRC Announces 2014 Values Voters Summit Lineup: A Cavalcade Of Crackpots

Tony Perkins fancies himself to be a GOP presidential candidate kingmaker, so it will be interesting to see if any not entirely crazy Republicans will join the above careening clown car crowded with the cavalcade of crackpots who failed in 2012, some of whom (Paul, Perry, Santorum) are expected to make a 2016 run. Ted Cruz won last year’s Values …

Tony Perkins Has Executive Order Sadz

“This action is wrong on the merits, because it accepts the premise that distinctions based on actual conduct — such as homosexual behavior and cross-dressing — should be treated the same way as distinctions based on immutable and innocuous characteristics like race. This order gives activists a license to challenge their employers and, expose those contracted employers to threats of …

Tony Perkins: Colorado’s Baker Refuses To Back Down To Homosexual Bullies

“If you think Colorado’s Masterpiece Cakes will give in to homosexual bullies, then you don’t know Jack. Jack Phillips, the owner of another Christian bakery under attack, is refusing to cave to the state’s ridiculous demands after he turned down an order for a same-sex ‘wedding’ cake. With help from our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom, the baker and his …

Tony Perkins Has The Oklahoma Sadz

“Two appeals court judges in imposing marriage redefinition have substituted their own ideology for the right of the people to preserve marriage. This divided court has swept away the 1,668,513 voters in Utah and Oklahoma who exercised their democratic right to preserve marriage in their respective state constitutions. The Left has long believed packing the federal courts with liberal jurists …

Tony Perkins On ENDA

“As even the Left turns its back on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act to give homosexuals and transgenders special rights in the workplace, the White House stubbornly plows ahead, insisting that it will defy Congress and enact a smaller version of the law by executive order. Angry the policy wouldn’t go far enough in handcuffing employers with religious beliefs, most homosexual …

Tony Perkins Has The Burger King Sadz

“When Burger King says ‘have it your way,’ they aren’t just talking about food. Hello, I’m Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Is it Burger King or Burger Queen? Customers in San Francisco aren’t so sure after the chain’s new Proud Whopper. Local stores unveiled the rainbow menu to coincide with LGBT week. Although nothing’s different about …

Tony Perkins Has The Colorado Sadz

“Most people have seen the movie Groundhog Day — and now, thanks to the courts, they’re living it. Every morning, Americans seem to be waking up to the same headlines on marriage: judge strikes down marriage amendment in [fill in the state]. Wednesday, reporters on the marriage beat had another easy day cutting and pasting the same constitutionally flawed reasoning …

Tony Perkins On ENDA

“Speaking of ideological oppression, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is full of it. But apparently, not full enough to suit the radical Left. After months of demanding action, liberals are abruptly bailing on the legislation, which many of them called their top legislative priority. The about-face comes just days after the Supreme Court upheld the religious rights of businesses like …

Tony Perkins: President Obama Is Going To Start Throwing Christians In Jail

Brian Tashman writes at Right Wing Watch: Tony Perkins invited Fox News’ go-to-Christian-persecution-commentator Todd Starnes to join him on the weekend edition of “Washington Watch,” where Starnes pointed to recent remarks by Rick Warren and Russell Moore warning of the imminent imprisonment of Christians in America as proof that Christians will indeed soon face jail sentences. Perkins, who recently warned …

Perkins Cheers Hobby Lobby Ruling

“The Supreme Court has delivered one of the most significant victories for religious freedom in our generation. We are thankful the Supreme Court agreed that the government went too far by mandating that family businesses owners must violate their consciences under threat of crippling fines.  All Americans can be thankful that the Court reaffirmed that freedom of conscience is a …

Perkins Has The Executive Order Sadz

“After 30 days of nonstop, in-your-face celebration, the White House is capping off ‘gay pride’ month with its biggest gift yet. Next Monday, the pot of gold at the end of this President’s rainbow is an executive order giving special workplace benefits to the sexually confused. For the far-Left, it caps off a long fight to get the administration to …
