Trump Endangers National Security, And The Religious Right Just Yawns

Let’s engage in a thought experiment: Pretend that it’s May of 2009, and Barack Obama, who has been president for a few months, has just shared some highly classified intelligence with the Russians. Let’s say this material has damaged America’s standing with our allies, exposed sources to possible retaliation and jeopardized the war on terror.

What do you think the leaders of Religious Right groups would be saying? My guess is they’d be calling for his impeachment, if not outright imprisonment.

Will Donald Trump Give Some Late Gifts To The Religious Right?

It hasn’t been a secret what members of the Religious Right sought under their Christmas trees this year, and voters playing the role of Santa Claus delivered: Donald Trump for president.

Could This Be The Last Election Ever? The Religious Right Thinks So

The Religious Right tends to dial up its gloom-and-doom predictions every election season in an attempt to scare its base into voting for candidates who will supposedly uphold “biblical values” (or, more likely, the far right’s narrow view of theology). This year is no different, but some religious zealots are taking scare tactics to a new level by suggesting that this could be the last presidential election ever in the United States.

A Week After The Release Of The Infamous Tape, Top Religious Right Leaders Are Standing By Their Man

On Saturday, AU’s Director of Communications Rob Boston wrote a blog post detailing the Religious Right’s reaction to videotape that exposed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump bragging about how he can commit sexual assault and harassment and get away with it because he’s famous.

Religious Right Support For Donald Trump Exposes Movement’s Values Void, Says Americans United

Family Research Council And Other Groups Would Excoriate A Democrat Who Had GOP Candidate’s Background, Says Church-State Watchdog

Thousands of conservative evangelicals will converge on Washington, D.C., this weekend for the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit to proclaim a thrice-married, coarse reality TV star as their standard-bearer.

It’s a move that exposes the desperation and hypocrisy of the Religious Right, says Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

Unholy Alliance?

At the 2015 Values Voter Summit (VVS) in Washington, D.C., Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump struggled at times to win over the crowd of about 2,700 far-right fundamentalist Christians.

Exploiting Orlando: The Threat Of Rhetoric That Divides Instead Of Unites

Over the weekend, Americans United joined thousands of people here in Washington, D.C., at Capital Pride. We had an informational booth there and were pleased to meet with many people who support our mission.

Inevitably, the tragic murders of 49 people and the wounding of dozens more at a gay club in Orlando early Sunday morning weighed on the minds of many. But the horrific attack didn’t deter people from attending D.C.’s event. AU was pleased to be there and considered it an opportunity to show our support for the LGBTQ community at this difficult time.

Holy Hypocrisy!: Religious Right Groups Quickly Changing Their Tune On Trump

Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, some political analysts are wondering whether Religious Right groups that bashed the thrice-married real estate magnate and reality TV star during the primary season will now rally to his cause in the general election.

So far it looks like plenty of them will.
