An atheist street billboard campaign that sparked cultural controversy in Colorado last fall has drawn sanction from public officials in Iowa. “Don’t believe in God? You are not alone,” say the ads. In state capital Des Moines, they appeared…
The longstanding feud between hard-line abortion foes American Right to Life Action and Focus on the Family founder James Dobson came to a head in a Colorado Springs courtroom Thursday.
Rev. Bob Enyart, a pastor at Denver Bible Church who proudly refers to himself as “America’s most popular self-proclaimed right-wing, religious fanatic, homophobic, anti-choice talk show host” was sentenced to nine days in the city pokey after refusing to pay a $400 fine for trespassing on the Focus campus.
The national antiabortion group, Susan B. Anthony List, is the recipient of a cool 50 grand courtesy of defeated U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave’s campaign fund. The Fort Morgan conservative, who now works for the List’s Votes Have Consequences outreach effort, will fund the “Young Leaders” training program, an initiative of the group’s separate tax-exempt charitable education foundation.

Ultra-conservative Christian talk radio hosts are taking a new approach to getting their message out — ambushing right-wing pundit Ann Coulter over her support for 2008 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who absolutist antiabortion activists accuse of being “willing to sacrifice children for your vote.”

The Gazette reports Colorado Springs police arrested eight protesters from a radical anti-abortion group who refused to leave the lobby at Focus on the Family headquarters Thursday morning. Members of a splinter group were protesting Focus chief James Dobson’s endorsement of Republican John McCain.
The AP is reporting three incidents involving anti-abortion protesters raising cain — one event which resulted in arrests outside the Pepsi Center, a picket of an Emily’s List event and another where Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies responded to heat-stressed individuals on a mesa outside Denver after they unfurled a 666-foot banner on the hillside (seriously, no religious symbolism there).
While ugly confrontation between reproductive-rights advocates and abortion opponents is inevitable, an internecine fight has been brewing between warring camps of absolutists that oppose abortion under any circumstances versus those who advocate for incremental change or are willing to make exceptions in certain cases.
The first in a series of reports exploring the ramifications of this controversial state ballot measure.
Hard-line, socially conservative activists are gearing up to enact state laws to restrict abortion since President Bush and Congress have all but abandoned
Hard-line anti-abortion forces in Colorado say they are backing off their fiery criticism of conservative U.S. Senate candidate Bob Schaffer for not supporting a controversial state ballot measure, according to press accounts this week. Really — or are they simply…
