The Family Research Council’s Jerry Boykin appeared on “The Hagee Hotline” this week to declare that America is starting to wake up to the fact that “radical secularists” are persecuting Christians like Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis and are beginning to get “riled up” in response.

“I will tell you that the radical secularists in this country today fear us,” Boykin said, “and that’s why they fight so hard against somebody like Kim Davis, because they see that America is now seeing that we’re actually, in many ways, we’re the victims of an all-out assault on our faith. And it is the faith of our Founding Fathers; it is, in fact, that faith upon which our Constitution was written and our nation was founded and they fear that Americans are going to get riled up and that’s exactly what’s happening.”

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
