Pat Robertson: Obama Thinks He Is The Messiah

Televangelist Pat Robertson scolded President Obama today for his new plan to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in order to fight climate change, telling viewers of “The 700 Club” that Obama is a “rogue president” who is subverting the Constitution.

“He says, ‘I am a Messiah, I am a leader, I am anointed, I’m gifted and I’m going to make my way on climate change, I’m going to make my way on immigration, I’m going to make my way on nuclear negotiations, I’m going to make my way on all of the other things that the Republicans and the majority of the people don’t want because I am gifted, I am the Messiah,’” Robertson said. “We should haven’t a leader like that.”

Robertson lamented that Obama is dividing the country and “ripping the framework of America” apart in front of “the eyes of everybody.”

Matthew Hagee: The Fight Against Gay Rights 'Is A War Between Good And Evil'

On yesterday's "Hagee Hotline," televangelist Matthew Hagee called upon viewers to contact their legislators in support of legislation like Indiana's "religious freedom" law, warning that if they don't, "we will lose the battle for righteousness in America."

"We have turned out back on values that have made us great," Hagee said, "and we have embraced the values that deteriorate society. We accept what others in past civilizations would have called appalling and yet we call appalling any individual who is willing to stand up and speak truth based on their convictions."

After asserting that God is very clear in both the Old and New Testament that homosexuality is "an abomination," Hagee called upon "people of faith and those who love truth" to contact their legislators in support of efforts to fight gay rights because this is a war between good and evil.

"Believe me, it is a war," he said. "It is a war between good and evil. It is a war between light and darkness. It is a war in which you have to make up your mind to either fully engage or become an ally of the Adversary who would like to see a lie become a truth and the truth become a lie":

Right-Wing Pundit: 'Gov. Pence Is The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Of 2015'

Writing today in WorldNetDaily, Liberty Counsel communications director Charla Bansley proposed that pastors and “those victimized by religious intolerance” from all around the country hold a massive rally in Indianapolis to defend Indiana’s ‘religious freedom’ law.

“Gov. Pence is the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. of 2015,” the Religious Right activist wrote.

She also made the erroneous claim that the Indiana law is just like other versions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Can conservatives responding to the recent controversy in Indiana over religious freedom learn anything from liberals about messaging? After the Michael Brown shooting, liberal leaders from the left, such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and secular progressive communities from across America seized the opportunity and flocked to Ferguson, Missouri, to take over the narrative, blaming Brown’s death on “institutional racism.” Universities as far away as George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, held diversity discussions. College students from all over the country joined the crowds walking the streets chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot.”

Today, the church must contend for the faith and the faithful in like manner. What churches and religious universities will take a page out of the liberal playbook to rally, to march, to hold candle vigils and to speak out? What pastors will go to Indianapolis to stand by Gov. Mike Pence and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act? Which organizations will help pay the way for those victimized by religious intolerance – bakers, photographers, venue owners – to make their way to Indianapolis? When will we as a church begin matching our words with action? If not now, then when?



Pence said Sunday that the new state law “is not about discrimination. This is about empowering people to confront government overreach.” Unfortunately, those words went over the heads of most people watching the interview. Homosexual activists went to the streets claiming the law would legalize discrimination, and Americans believed the false narrative. The truth is a federal RFRA was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1993, and 19 other states have passed similar laws, but not one case of discrimination exists. The real cases of discrimination are the religious businesses who have been sued for refusing to participate in a same-sex wedding: the Catholic B&B owners who didn’t want to host a same-sex wedding in Vermont, the baker in Oregon, the photographer in New Mexico, the florist in Washington and a host of others.

Gov. Pence is the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. of 2015, courageously defending the bakers, photographers, florists, ministers, county clerks, and owners of wedding venues who, after a lifetime of acquiring skills and building businesses, have seen their livelihoods destroyed, forced to pay exorbitant fines and even threatened with jail.

Pat Robertson: Americans Must Resist 'Totalitarian Dictators' Of 'The Gay Lobby'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson denounced elected officials and business leaders for “caving” to the “gay lobby” in criticizing a new “religious liberty” law in Indiana.

“They’re not liberal, they’re totalitarian dictators,” Robertson said of the law’s critics. “They’re going to force you into their mold, they’re going to make you conform to political correctness, they’re going to make you do what the Left thinks is right, they’re going to make you acknowledge homosexual marriage, they’re going to make you embrace lifestyles that you think are anti-biblical despite your religious belief.”

Robertson continued: “The fact that these gays are making such a fuss of it and businesses are caving, businesses all over the country are caving, they are terrified of the gay lobby, terrified of the gay lobby. Don’t we have any backbone left in this country?”

Robertson’s comments followed a CBN News report which falsely suggested that Indiana’s new law is no different from previous federal and state versions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Bryan Fischer: Co-Pilot's Alleged Homosexuality May Explain German Plane Crash

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer seized upon a news report that Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who is believed to have deliberately crashed a German flight last week, killing everyone on board, had "trawled gay porn websites and sites relating to suicide" to raise the possibility that Lubitz's alleged homosexuality may have played a role in the crash.

As Fischer explained, "it's striking that one of the health risks that's associated with homosexual behavior is an increased risk of suicidal ideation ... Now we are discovering that, perhaps, [Lubitz] was involved in homosexuality, was taking drugs for depression, and perhaps that would explain his suicidal crash of that plane":

Lubitz had a girlfriend at the time of the crash, a fact that seemed to be lost on Fischer, who has suggested in the past that homosexuality is a chosen behavior rather than an innate orientation.

Indiana Anti-Gay Activist: We Are Victims Of 'Spiritual Warfare'

Yesterday, Micah Clark of the American Family Association’s Indiana chapter, who helped craft Indiana’s new “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” and even stood right behind Gov. Mike Pence during the signing ceremony, said that any effort to clarify that the act will not sanction discrimination would “totally destroy” the law.

Clark repeated that message today on “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” where he told guest host Fred Jackson that his state is right now bogged down in “spiritual warfare” over the fate of the law, which Clark falsely claimed was the exact same law as RFRA statutes enacted on the federal level and in other states.

While he helped pass the broad, controversial law that effectively allows businesses to discriminate against certain customers, such as gays and lesbians, Clark said that Religious Right activists like hisemlf are the real victims in the fight.

“The first thing you have to do is pray, because this is a spiritual war,” Clark told listeners. “There is no doubt about that, by the Twitter comments I get, by the email comments and threats from the opposition, some pornographic things that are out there and obscene things being said. This is a campaign of fear and lies and so this is a spiritual war that people must pray about.”

“I said a few years ago, ‘if we won’t stand for marriage, what will we stand for,’ but if we won’t stand for our own religious freedom, what will we stand for as a church?” he added.

Fox's Todd Starnes Links Obama To East Village Fire Selfie

Fox News pundit Todd Starnes is joining his network colleagues in linking President Obama to a tourist who took a selfie at the site of an explosion in the East Village.

Because one of the women who took a selfie in the East Village worked as a field organizer for Obama’s 2008 campaign for four months, Starnes wondered during his radio bulletin today if she was simply taking a cue from the president.

“The self-absorbed generation, ladies and gentlemen,” Starnes said. “Maybe she was just emulating the man she helped get elected to the White House. I mean, how can we forget President Obama taking selfies during Nelson Mandela’s funeral — a funeral!”

Of course, the supposedly scandalous Obama selfies occurred at a celebratory memorial service, not during Mandela’s funeral.

Beck: Criticism Of Indiana's 'Religious Freedom' Law Will Lead To Concentration Camps

Glenn Beck opened his radio program today by continuing his defense of the recently passed Indiana law that allows business owners to discriminate in the name of "religious freedom" by warning that attacks on such laws will lead to people being placed in concentration camps and killed.

Declaring that "gay activists will boycott, will make it uncomfortable, they'll smear them, they'll just ratchet up the hate" against any business owner who refuses to provide services to a same-sex wedding in an attempt to drive them out of business, Beck insisted that everyone just has to "heal our hearts" and realize that religious business owners are not motivated by hate but rather by their faith.

"Let's stop forcing each other to do things," Beck begged. "You don't change anything. That ends up in concentration camps. You just start grinding and grinding and grinding away until you're in separate worlds and nobody talks to each other and then, whoever has the power, round 'em up and kill 'em because those guys are the problem."

"That's how it happens," he said, which prompted his co-host Stu Burguiere to quip that Beck managed to make it a mere fourteen minutes into the radio show today before he started warning about people being rounded up and locked away in concentration camps:
