Anna Higgins - Fri Apr 19

The horrors that have been revealed by witnesses in the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell are almost unspeakable. It appears the disgusting conditions found at his facility were just the tip of the iceberg. ... more

Jerry Newcombe - Thu Apr 18

Terrorism is in the news again as seen in the tragic bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday. This man-made disaster gives a time to reflect on terrorism---as we continue to pray for the victims of the bombing. ... more

Todd Starnes - Tue Apr 9

A U.S. Army officer sent an email to dozens of subordinates listing the American Family Association and Family Research Council as "domestic hate groups" because they oppose homosexuality -- and warned officers to monitor soldiers who might be supporters of the groups. ... more

Tony Perkins - Tue Feb 26

Bullying knows no boundaries. It’s not just boys on the playground or people at work; it can even be organizations on the national stage as was revealed in a federal court room on February 6th. ... more

Ken Connor - Wed Feb 20

When you hear the name Southern Poverty Law Center, it immediately evokes images of Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Freedom Rides... all iconic symbols of the civil rights movement. And rightly so, for these are the events that inspired it’s founding. ... more

Matt Barber - Mon Feb 11

Long before homosexual activist Floyd Corkins entered the D.C.-based Family Research Council (FRC) with the intent to commit mass murder, I warned from the rooftops that the hard-left Southern Poverty Law Center’s anti-Christian “hate group” propaganda might spur such bloodshed. ... more

No one doubts President Obama's formidable intellect. He has never been subjected to the kind of scorn and ridicule that met Dan Quayle's every utterance. After all, as presidential historian Michael Beschloss assures us, Barack Obama is the smartest man ever to occupy the Oval Office. Thus, we all sift through the golden rhetoric of this amazing man. ... more

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. - Sat Sep 1

Years ago, a tough private TV detective softened his crazy appearance by chewing on a lollipop instead of a cigar. To those he had rescued by brute force, he also frequently uttered the phrase, “Who loves ya, baby!” For those of us that have dared to oppose the LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered] community’s stance on marriage, we know that we are often persecuted and intimidated, just like those who dared to go up against the TV character Kojak. Same-sex marriage proponents have been increasingly free to show us anything but love. ... more

Christopher Merola - Mon Aug 27

This past Friday, August 24, 2012, while campaigning in Michigan, Republican Party presidential nominee Mitt Romney made a joke concerning his own birth certificate. The Obama campaign reacted with outrage to Romney’s joke, even though President Obama has joked about his own birth certificate in public. Naturally, responding to the Obama campaign’s outrage, some members of the media followed suit and did the same. Yet, the Obama campaign and the media refused to show outrage when Vice President Joe Biden recently made racially charged comments while on the campaign trail. ... more

Pat Buchanan - Fri Aug 24

Whittaker Chambers said that "the great failing of American conservatives is they do not retrieve their wounded." He had it right, as Todd Akin can testify. ... more

Maggie Gallagher - Thu Aug 23

Last week, a man with a master's degree from George Mason University, a gun and 50 rounds of ammo walked into the Family Research Council. When a building manager named Leo Johnson blocked his entry, he shot Leo in the arm. ... more

Robert Knight - Wed Aug 22

When a man shot and wounded security guard Leo Johnson at the Family Research Council (FRC) on August 15, the shooter left little doubt as to why. ... more

Michael Brown - Wed Aug 22

Dear Mr. Potok, Because your organization has not responded to my previous attempts to interact and because the SPLC is coming under increasing public scrutiny, I am writing this open letter with the hope that you will respond. You should be familiar with my name, since I am on your list of “30 New Activists Heading Up the Radical Right” and since I was profiled in the Spring 2012 Intelligence Report (more on that shortly). ... more

Jonah Goldberg - Wed Aug 22

If it hasn't completely vanished down the memory hole, you might recall that last week a man walked into the headquarters of the conservative Family Research Council with a backpack full of Chick-fil-A sandwiches and bullets, said something like "I don't like your politics" and then shot the building manager. ... more

America - Mon Aug 20

Tony Perkins talked about the media's reaction to the FRC shooting. ... more

Brent Bozell - Fri Aug 17

Floyd Corkins, a volunteer for the last six months at the D.C. Center for the LGBT Community, marched into the Family Research Center with a gun and serious ammunition, denounced FRC's policy positions and shot a security guard in the arm before being subdued. Another hate crime, but this time against, perhaps, the pre-eminent pro-family organization in America. CBS gave the story 20 seconds. NBC spent 17 seconds. ... more
