    Falsely accusing opponents with hate is a devilish tool of the anti-Christian crew. Given its prominence in current public discourse, one would think that hate, not love, is a many-splendored thing. The perfectly good word, which oozes out of every media pore, is now so overused that it means next to nothing. Every time you turn around, someone is accused of "hate" merely for expressing disagreement. This is not just a matter of semantics. It's serious. When you cheapen a word, it discourages honest discussion and leads to more confusion and conflict, which is how the devil likes it. We...

    The war against the Washington establishment is only beginning, chief strategist for the MAGA coalition Dr. Sebastian Gorka told the Values Voter Summit on Saturday.And, he said, just because he and Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon left the White House does not mean the values they fought  last November for won’t win. On the contrary, he said, comparing Bannon to Obi-Wan Kenobi in the final scene of Star Wars: A New Hope:“It’s like when Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi are dueling on the Death Star and Obi-Wan the master Jedi says, ‘If you strike me down now I will be more powerful...

    In a Friday address to hundreds of enthusiastic Values Voter Summit participants, Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows equated some members of Congress to “dud” shotgun shells, declaring that those who don’t get behind President Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda should be sent home.“We need to anticipate the battle that is still raging on the streets of Washington, D.C. in this place that they call the swamp,” said the congressman. The crowd cheered as Chairman Meadows said that draining the swamp “includes every single member of the House and Senate. If they’re not willing to do what they promised on their...

    A lesbian police officer might have helped save his life, but House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana is still planning to speak at a conference for an anti-gay group. Scalise will address the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit on Oct. 13 in Washington, D.C. The FRC is an anti-abortion, anti-gay conservative group and lobbying organization. FRC’s President Tony Perkins wrote a memo about the upcoming appearance, referencing the June shooting at a Virginia baseball field where Scalise and other Republicans were practicing for an upcoming charity game. The congressman was shot in the hip. “There were times...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has a list of "Extremist Hate Groups" on their website (https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-h…/extremist-files/groups). To be clear, most belong there as they have earned the reputation of being historically hateful and criminally violent. Others listed are merely defenders of Christian family values and not at all hateful. I have attached the attack blurb the SPLC has listed on their website alongside the actual "about us" listed on the accused's website. The following three groups are LAWFULLY educating the public on issues of historic family values and are not at all engaged in any activity which is unlawful nor...

    August 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — In the vast array of leftist lies, one of the most dangerous is that groups and people defending historic Judeo-Christian sexual morality are somehow guilty of "hate." The main perpetrator of that “big lie” these days is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which has turned smearing and demonizing social conservatives fighting the homosexual-transgender agenda into a very profitable business. The SPLC is attempting to pull off one of the nastiest and most audacious “bait-and-switch” propaganda coups in history — equating the Christian-conservative led effort to defend biblical morality against the aggressive LGBTQ lobby with...

    Many Christian organizations are fearful for their safety after CNN published a bogus “hate map” concocted by the Southern Poverty Law Center. “Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” CNN’s headline declared. The list included among others American Family Association, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Counsel and Pacific Justice Institute. American Family Association blasted the CNN story calling it a “sham news article that could easily incite violence and place AFA employees and supporters in harm’s way.” Liberty Counsel President Mat Staver demanded an immediate retraction – calling CNN’s report “false, defamatory and dangerous.” “Liberty...

    It’s hard to believe American teenagers could be arrested for delivering a prayer, but that’s the kind of nation we live in — a nation that was fundamentally transformed by the previous presidential administration. In 2011, the class president at Hampton High School in Tennessee wanted to deliver a pray at graduation. The principal issued an edict that any child who attempted to pray would be stopped, escorted from the building by police and arrested. That incident was one of dozens included in a stunning new Family Research Council report documenting a significant upsurge in government hostility to religion. Since...

    Long-time national security expert Lt. Col. Robert “Bob” Maginnis (ret.), a senior fellow with the Family Research Council (FRC), said there is “a lot of witchcraft” and “hedonism” in Washington, D.C., and added that when he thinks of Sodom and Gomorrah he often thinks of the nation’s capital “in the same thought.” Maginnis, who has testified numerous times before Congress and appeared on countless news outlets, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and the Fox News Channel, also said Dupont Circle, infamous for being the “center of homosexuality in Washington,” is home to countless activities that are “pretty souring.” […] Maginnis,...

    "LGBT agenda will be unhinged." A new religious liberty executive order protecting Christians from the onslaught of former community organizer Barack Obama's radical LGBT agenda may be in the works soon, says former Donald Trump advisor Ken Blackwell. “My anticipation is that we will see an Executive Order and it will be more than window dressing,” Blackwell, senior fellow for Human Rights and Constitutional Governance at the Family Research Council, told LifeSiteNews, predicting that Obama's “aggressive LGBT agenda will be unhinged." “We have a great plan to attack the administrative state,” he said. “We will have to be very meticulous...

    Step one: Find an expert with an impressive-sounding academic title to legitimize shoddy advocacy propaganda. Meet Brian Levin. He's the one-man band behind something called the "Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism" at California State University, San Bernardino. The "center" (that is: Levin) claims to be "nonpartisan" and "objective." But he is a former top staffer of the militant, conservative-smearing Southern Poverty Law Center, which was forced to apologize earlier this year after including famed black neurosurgeon and GOP 2016 candidate Ben Carson on its "extremist watch list" of hate groups. At SPLC, Levin infamously posited that the...

    CLEVELAND — The Latest on the Republican National Convention (all times EDT): 7:45 p.m. The head of the socially conservative Family Research Council is promising to vote for Donald Trump. Tony Perkins is the first speaker on Thursday night's program at the Republican National Convention. Perkins — who's also a Louisiana delegate — says Trump has demonstrated his commitment to religious conservative values through his promise to appoint conservative judges, his support for the GOP platform and the selection of running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.

    A letter sent by a Federal Communications Commission commissioner suggests that taxpayers are footing the bill for half a billion dollars in fraudulent "Obamaphone" subsidies. Ajit Pai, the senior Republican commissioner at the FCC, says there may be as many as 4.2 million duplicate recipients of Lifeline Assistance subsidies, also known as the “Obamaphone” program. In a letter to chief executive of Universal Services Administrative Company (USAC), Pai requests an audit of how carrier sub-contractors vet the applications for new subsidies. In the letter, first published by The Hill, Pai says that cell phone carriers may have bypassed a safeguard...

    Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and dozens of other prominent conservatives are expected to endorse Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for president, a move that aims to coalesce conservative support around one candidate, a National Review article claimed Tuesday. The article states that a coalition of as many as 50 influential conservative activists gathered on Dec. 7 at the Sheraton Hotel in Tysons Corner, Virginia for a meeting that was spearheaded by Perkins for the purpose of hashing out which candidate the conservative activists will unite their support behind. After a long day of discussion and debate, it took five...

    National Review's Tim Alberta has given us all a peek behind the veil of a much-rumored process in which a cabal of conservative leaders — with especially heavy representation from old-line Christian-right groups, and informally headed up by the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins — has worked to unify around a single Republican presidential candidates. Turns out the group — which in fact referred to itself as "the GROUP" — has been struggling to reach a self-imposed 75 percent supermajority threshold for agreement on a single candidate. Coincidentally or not, Ted Cruz finally achieved that threshold in a meeting during...

    Megyn Kelly is having a very good month. And we’re not talking from a ratings perspective, either. Comparing Kelly to her competition at 9:00 PM is now a pointless exercise. The May numbers show her beating CNN’s taped programming (Bourdain, Rowe, etc.) and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow many nights by a 3-to-1 ratio or more. It’s actually been that way for some time and Kelly’s dominance appears to only be getting stronger. All of that said, what this column will focus on is all the headlines/buzz the program is generating long after the 44-year-old Albany Law grad signs off at 10:00...
