Yesterday, my colleague Rob Boston reminded us that the Religious Rights influence is alive and well.

He discussed a new South Dakota law that requires women to seek counseling before opting to have an abortion. In many states, this counseling is troubling because not only does it promote heavily fundamentalist Christian viewpoints, it is also funded by the taxpayer.

Today, the American Independent reports that in Indiana Religious Right groups are receiving ample government support to push their agenda in the anti-gay realm as well.

The online newspaper reports that these organizations are receiving federal funds to run so-called healthy marriage programs all the while leading political movements to ban same-sex marriage and other LGBT equality measures.
