  • Linda Harvey demands that Republicans all over the country oppose efforts to pass any more nondiscrimination laws because “Sodomy is NOT a civil right!”
  • Glenn Beck is now organizing a march in Birmingham, Alabama, which will end with speeches from the likes of David Barton.
  • Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center insists that “no NBC reporter is now qualified to cover the presidential election” because NBC cut ties with Donald Trump.
  • Michael Bresciani says “it takes no great power of discernment to see that calling what God has declared an abomination (homosexuality) is not a biblical, constitutional or common sense right for anyone on this planet – it is only a sure path to judgment.”
  • Finally, Dutch Sheets is furious: “And who could ever forget the mocking spirit demonstrated by our president when he decorated the White House with rainbow colors. Using one of God’s covenantal symbols, a symbol now used by the LGBT movement, President Obama delivered one of the most arrogant, in-your-face gestures ever performed by an American president. Knowing fully the anguish millions of Christians were experiencing over this ruling, and knowing the insult this act would be to those millions of Americans, he chose to decorate the White House in this gay and lesbian symbolism.”

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
