CMI Special Report Rewriting the Bible: The Gospel According to Liberals Executive Summary
13th Mar, 2013 3:00pm
Click here to go to the full report. Liberals and their media allies have long argued that the U.S. Constitution is a “living document,” open to change in order to justify almost anything they happen to want at any given time. It shouldn’t be surprising then that they’ve come to show the same disregard for another important document: the Bible.  When they aren’t actively denigrating religion, liberal journalists, entertainers, and politicians use faith as a weapon to bludgeon conservatives. They decided to...

Civil Union: Networks Promoting Gay Agenda
14th Nov, 2012 12:45pm
According to exit polling of the 2012 election, just 5 percent of voters who turned out were gay. Yet voters said their states should legalize same-sex marriage by 49 percent to 46 percent.

Aided by the media, Democrats were able successfully to caricature conservatives as puritanical.
