Rodney Howard-Browne Fears America 'Has Become Demon Possessed'

During last weekend’s “Celebrate America” convention, televangelist Rodney Howard-Browne called on Religious Right activists to free America from the clutches of Satan before the country turns into a jail for Christians.

“We have allowed the Devil to come in and take over every realm of society,” Howard-Browne lamented. After dismissing the separation of church and state as “a bunch of garbage” and peddling some Christian Nationalist pseudo-history, Howard-Browne warned that people will soon flee America. “If we do not see another Great Awakening, people are going to want to leave here because this place is fast becoming a prison,” he said.

Later, he called on conservatives to take back the government, warning that “it is like our nation has become demon possessed in every realm.”

Louie Gohmert: Obama Is Bringing In Central American Immigrants To Vote Illegally For Democrats

Speaking with Newsmax host Steve Malzberg yesterday about the influx of Central American children and families at the Southern border, Rep. Louie Gohmert implied that President Obama was orchestrating the crisis in order to recruit millions of people to cast fraudulent ballots for Democrats and seize Texas from Republican control.

“In the end, they have said that they want to turn Texas blue, they want to turn America blue,” he said. “And if you bring in hundreds of thousands or millions of people and give them the ability to vote and tell them — as Quico Canseco said, he had illegals in his district that were told, ‘If you want to keep getting the benefits, you have to vote, and President Obama’s lawyers are not going to allow them to ask for an ID, so go vote or you’re going to lose the benefits you’re getting now.’ That drives people to vote and it will ensure that Republicans don’t ever get elected again.”

The Texas Republican also told Malzberg that the Central American refugees, combined with the end of the gold standard during the Nixon administration, will bankrupt the country.
 

Pastor At Religious Right Event Predicts Church Will Soon Cure HIV

Televangelist Rodney Howard-Browne’s “Celebrate America” event kicked off over the Fourth of July weekend, bringing Religious Right speakers together in Washington D.C. with predictable messages about how gay rights will doom America.

One speaker, Pastor Kwabena Sarpong of Winners Chapel International Maryland, said that while the U.S. was established with spiritual “power,” the country is now in decline because “they have taken power out of it.” A Religious Right revival, Sarpong explained, would bring America back to greatness … and even cure HIV.

“Thank God for you and I that we are in this nation, we are taking the revival. Until they see power, they will not believe in your God,” he said. “When they have toiled and they can’t find any cure to HIV and they come to the church and you lay hands and they start walking, they will see power and they will all run to the House of God for the Bible says in the Last Days all shall run.”

Cliven Bundy Defends Border Militias, Tells Feds to Point Guns At 'Enemy' Immigrants

If the anti-immigrant protests in Murietta, California, and the gathering of militia groups at the border remind you of the anti-government standoff at Cliven Bundy’s ranch, that might be because the events are attracting some of the very same people.

Far-right radio host Pete Santilli, who we last saw harassing a Mexican-American reporter at Bundy’s ranch, has been broadcasting from Murietta for the past week or so and has mentioned that he has also driven down to join some groups along the Southern border, who he has been working with in an effort to shut down the Tijuana border crossing.

In fact, yesterday, Santilli interviewed Bundy himself about the similarities between the Bundy ranch standoff and the events in Murietta and at the border.

Calling the Bureau of Land Management “dirty rotten buggers,” Bundy told Santilli that the groups who faced off with the BLM at his ranch were “successful in bringing back freedom to America, at least in this area.”

Speaking of the militia groups gathering at the Southern border — including groups like the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters, who were strongly represented at his ranch — Bundy said that like at his ranch, federal agents are “pointing their guns at we the people” and not at the “enemy,” who he said is the “encroacher that’s illegally coming in here.”

Jennifer Roback Morse: 'Thank God For The Men On The Supreme Court' Who Are 'Sticking Up' For Women

In a Christian Post column this weekend, the Ruth Institute’s Jennifer Roback Morse thanks God that the men on the Supreme Court are “sticking up for ‘everywoman’ against the Elite Women,” represented by the women on the Supreme Court who have allowed feminism to help them through their careers.

Morse argues that because Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan are childless, they don’t “understand and respect the lives and aspirations” of women who prioritize children over their careers, while Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a “lifelong radical feminist ideologue.”

Let me tell you about a friend of mine named Katie. She is a brilliant attorney, who works part-time for a non-profit public interest legal organization. Katie has nine children, whom she homeschools. She lives out in the country in coastal California. By any reasonable reckoning, Katie, is "having it all:" big family, country living in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and meaningful, intellectually challenging work.

However, it is safe to say that Katie is highly unlikely to ever be appointed to the Supreme Court. She has other concerns. She does not have the single-minded focus on her legal career that would allow her to be a serious contender.

I too, have had a wonderful advantaged life: meaningful work, good family life. But I never chaired an economics department. I never sat on any prestigious commissions. I wasn't given any political appointment as my childless or male peers have done.

Which brings me back to the subject at hand: whose interests do the women on the Supreme Court actually represent?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a lifelong radical feminist ideologue. She came of age in the short window of time when women could still get married, have kids, go to law school, and have a career after child-bearing. Her two children were born when she was 22 and 32. Thanks to radical feminism, highly educated women have a much more difficult time doing these things. They can go to law school and have a career alright. But getting married and having children sometime before menopause, not so much.

Justice Ginsburg had the lifelong support of her husband in her career aspirations. Thanks to no-fault divorce, women today cannot count on a lifetime of mutual support with their husbands. Justice Ginsburg has been safely insulated from the negative fallout of the sexual revolution which she and her radical feminist colleagues did so much to champion.

The other two women on the Supreme Court, Justices Kagan and Sotomayor, are childless. It is highly unlikely that the two of them understand and respect the lives and aspirations of women like my friend Katie and me. And for less educated women, family is everything and "career" is a job to put food on the table. Elite women know nothing of "everywoman," the people who have endured the sexual revolution, and who do not have high status jobs as compensation.

Women like Katie and I are willing to let ourselves see the harm that the Sexual Revolution had done to the poor. Our lives do not depend on defending the Sexual Revolution. By contrast, for many Elite Women, the sexual revolution has made possible their lives as they know them. They literally cannot imagine what their lives would be like without contraception, with abortion as a back-up plan.

As I say, Katie and I will never occupy the seats of power that are available to childless women. We have many achievements to our credit, but Elite Women will run the show. We have good lives: I do not regret for one moment, the choices I have made. But there is no getting around it: childless women have an advantage over mothers in the competition for power and influence.

All I can say is: thank God for the men on the Supreme Court. At least someone is sticking up for "everywoman" against the Elite Women.

Staver: Gay Marriage Is 'A Direct Attack On Who God Is'

Rodney Howard-Browne, a pioneer of the Holy Laughter movement, is currently leading a three-week long revival event in Washington, DC called "Celebrate America" that is featuring a variety of Religious Right leaders.

Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver was among the first speakers to participate over the weekend where he declared that America is a modern day Pompeii that is on the verge of total destruction because of its embrace of things like abortion and gay marriage.

As Staver explained, not all sins are equal because, according to 1 Corinthians 6, sexual sins alone are committed against one's own body and so they are "unique from any other sin."

As such, he said, by accepting homosexuality and gay marriage, our society is "moving into a direct attack on who God is."

"When you destroy human sexuality," Staver proclaimed, "and when you destroy human life created in the image of God and you destroy God's creation of marriage as man and woman, husband and wife, male and female, when you destroy that, you destroy your understanding of who God is. That's where we are moving right now in America":

Reilly: Gays Seek To Normalize Homosexuality In Order To Alleviate The Guilt Over Their 'Morally Disordered' Behavior

Former Bush administration official and current anti-gay activist Robert Reilly was a guest on Jesse Lee Peterson's radio program yesterday, promoting his new book "Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior Is Changing Everything" where he explained that the ultimate goal of gay activists is to make society accept the lie that homosexuality is okay in order to alleviate their own guilt about their "morally disordered" behavior.

Likening gays to criminals who justify their thievery, Reilly said that they seek to rationalize their own "sodomitical acts" as acceptable and then force everyone else to buy into the lie as well so they can avoid having to face "all the guilt that would normally accrue to their behavior."

Peterson agreed, saying that "homosexuals who are pushing this know that they are wrong, inside themselves they have guilt and they think that if they can convince the world that homosexuality is normal, then the guilt will go away."

But that guilt will never go away, Peterson concluded, "because it's wrong even if everybody says that it's right."

"You've diagnosed this whole thing absolutely correctly," Reilly responded:

Religious Right Pundit Calls For Boycott Of Independence Day Parades That Include Gay Rights Supporters

Laurie Higgins of the American Family Association’s Illinois affiliate is distraught that Boy Scouts wearing rainbow bandanas and a local Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) club participated in Independence Day parades in two Illinois towns this year.

In a column in BarbWire today, Higgins calls on parents to boycott any event that includes supporters of gay rights. “What a barbarous affront to families and an insult to our veterans,” the Illinois Family Institute cultural analyst writes. “No Christian should bring their children to any event that celebrates and affirms soul-destroying sexual perversion.”

She predicts that soon “there will be no square inch of life that will be left untouched by the sullied hands of homosexual perversity–no celebration, no public school, no career path, and no church will be left unmolested.”

Higgins laments that the founding fathers’ “vision for liberty has been twisted into a sickening defense of sexual predilections that will hurt individuals and weaken the country that so many have died to bring into existence and to defend,” turning America into an “uncivilized nation.”

A justifiably irate parent from Deerfield, a liberal community on the North Shore, contacted me to tell me that one of the scoutmasters and a couple of the scouts he leads in her son’s troop (Troop 50) decided to add rainbow-colored bandannas to their official uniforms to demonstrate their support for something. Perhaps they were showing their support for the change in Boy Scout policy which allows openly homosexual boys to become members, or maybe they were advocating for a change in policy so that men who are attracted to males can serve openly as leaders of males, or maybe they wanted to signal their affirmation of homosexuality, or perhaps they want men-wannabes (i.e., cross-dressers and the genitally mutilated) to serve as leaders.

Angry parents of young children in Wheaton, a conservative community which is home to Wheaton College and a dozen theologically orthodox churches, contacted me to express their frustration that for the second year in a row, the homosexuality-affirming organization Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) had marched in the parade. No one opposes friendships with homosexuals, but, of course, that’s not really what this deviously-named organization is promoting.



Communities now take pride in affirming shameful behaviors, with our elected leaders marching pridefully in celebration of that which no man or woman should celebrate let alone celebrate on Main Street in front of children. What a barbarous affront to families and an insult to our veterans. No Christian should bring their children to any event that celebrates and affirms soul-destroying sexual perversion. If Christians are unwilling to make even this small sacrifice, they are woefully unprepared for what’s coming.

Some will be tsk-tsking me (or worse) for criticizing these intrusions into what should be occasions to celebrate the founding of the greatest nation that has ever existed on this planet—a nation founded by men who understood that God exists and absolute, objective, transcendent, eternal moral truths exist. These men of diverse theological views would share in common a sense of outrage that their vision for liberty has been twisted into a sickening defense of sexual predilections that will hurt individuals and weaken the country that so many have died to bring into existence and to defend.



The proverbial writing has been on the wall for quite some time, and it doesn’t take a Daniel to read it. There will be no square inch of life that will be left untouched by the sullied hands of homosexual perversity–no celebration, no public school, no career path, and no church will be left unmolested.

If your community parade included participants who celebrated ideas to which no young children should be exposed, call the appropriate village, town, or city officials to express your opposition, telling them that next year you will find a child-friendly activity way to celebrate the founding of this increasingly uncivilized nation.

Todd Starnes Warns Of Anti-Duck Dynasty Violence, Links Same-Sex Marriage To Healthy Food Initiatives

In an interview last week with talk show host Jeanne Dennis, Fox News commentator Todd Starnes predicted that conservative Christians will soon organize acts of civil disobedience and street demonstrations akin to the Civil Rights Movement to protest their purported oppression.

Starnes specifically cited Phil Robertson, who was briefly suspended from the A&E show “Duck Dynasty” for making racist and anti-gay remarks in a magazine interview, as a victim of “persecution.”

He even said that criticism of Robertson will lead to violence: “If you can take someone like Phil Robertson and say, ‘Phil Robertson is preaching hate,’ or, ‘He’s speaking hate,’ eventually that is going to justify violence against those kinds of people.”

Later in the interview, Starnes linked same-sex marriage to feminism, which he said is waging “an attack on men” and “putting limitations” on women, and to Michelle Obama’s healthy diet and living initiatives, which he feared would lead to a ban on Nutter Butters and cheeseburgers.

Starnes said that feminism, same-sex marriage and the first lady’s health advocacy are all part of an attempt to “tear down the family unit” and make the government “control everything.” He finished by making a joke mocking transgender people.

Michael Peroutka, Christian Nationalist And Southern Secessionist, Wins GOP County Council Nomination In Maryland

Two weeks ago, Peter reported that Michael Peroutka, a Southern secessionist and head of the Christian Nationalist group Institute on the Constitution, was narrowly leading in the GOP primary for a seat on the Anne Arundel County, Maryland, county council. Now, after all the ballots have been counted, Peroutka appears to have come out on top of the five-way primary in his heavily Republican district, besting his closest competitor by a mere 38 votes.

In an editorial today, the Annapolis Capital Gazette notes that by nominating Peroutka, GOP voters in the district “have definitely gotten their party into a pickle.”

“Peroutka told voters the truth when he stressed that he was against taxes and stormwater fees,” the Capital Gazette writes. “He didn’t stress that he’s also a theocrat and secessionist who thinks it would be great if local officials refused to uphold state laws.”

Peroutka has certainly indicated that his national political activism will inform how he governs at the local level.

He recently presented his theory that the Maryland General Assembly is “no longer a valid legislative body” because it passed laws that he deems to be violations of “God’s law,” including a marriage equality bill and a stormwater tax. Last year, he said that state and local prosecutors should just ignore Roe v. Wade and prosecute women who have abortions or their providers for murder. 

Peroutka's spokesman told the Capital Gazette yesterday that the candidate "would evaluate each piece of legislation to be sure it was authorized by God in the Bible, the U.S. Constitution and the Anne Arundel County Charter” and would look into privatizing road repairs and the fire department.

In the general election, Peroutka will be running against Democrat Patrick Armstrong, who handily beat Peroutka’s Institute on the Constitution sidekick David Whitney in the primary.
