Right Wing Round-Up - 2/12/16

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 2/12/16

  • Glenn Beck will return to CPAC this year.
  • Jennifer LeClaire says that atheists don't need government recognition, but rather should simply be "surrendering to a living God they reject and embracing their true identity in Christ."
  • Scott Lively explains "the common root of LGBT dysfunctions" as only he can.
  • The Family Research Council's Rob Schwarzwalder says that President Obama got it wrong on coming out of the closet because "there is no love in affirming something God declares wrong and harmful, whether it relates to human sexuality or thievery or malice or deception or anything."
  • Ted Cruz insists that he's "not running to be pastor-in-chief."
  • Finally, BarbWire's Gina Miller has penned yet another of reasonable column: "I don’t have to tell you how discouraging, infuriating and terrifying it is to watch the greatest, freest nation in the history of the world, second only to Israel in its unparalleled, blessed uniqueness, be systematically dismantled by the Hell-inspired servants of Satan who are now in power in the United States."

Creationist Ken Ham: Evolution Is A 'Fairy Tale,' Creationism Based On 'Observational Science'

Ken Ham, the founder and president of the Young Earth Creationist group Answers In Genesis, slammed churches that are participating in a series of discussions about faith and evolution this weekend, claiming that it is in fact the belief in evolution that is turning America into a theocracy.

Ham joined VCY America’s Jim Schneider on his “Crosstalk” program on Wednesday to discuss today’s International Darwin Day and the corresponding Evolution Weekend, in which houses of worship participate in discussions about the relationship between faith and science.

Ham reserved most of his criticism for the churches participating in Evolution Weekend and groups such as BioLogos, a Christian organization that “invites the church and the world to see the harmony between science and biblical faith.”

He claimed that people who promote the teaching of evolution in churches, schools and universities are turning the government into a pro-evolution theocracy.

“There is no such thing as separation of church and state,” he said. “The First Amendment doesn’t even have that first terminology in it, you know. The Establishment Clause is about the state not establishing a church, but the state has established a church, it’s the Church of Evolution with Darwin as the high priest, if you like, and a lot of these teachers and professors as priests in this religion of evolution that they’re imposing through the schools.”

This widespread teaching of the theory of evolution, Ham said, has caused God to raise up Creationist groups like his.

Ham, whose group is behind the Creation Museum and an upcoming Noah’s ark theme park in Kentucky, explained that evolution has nothing to do with science since it is a religious belief … unlike Creationism, which is based on science.

“What we’ve got to understand is molecules-to-man evolution, that’s not observational science, that’s a belief, that’s a story that people made up to try to explain how life arose,” he said, without a hint of irony. “Christians have an account of origins in the Bible that God has given us.”

He said that the study of genetics, geology and biology “confirms the Bible’s account of creation and the flood and the Tower of Babel, it does not confirm molecules-to-man evolution. Molecules-to-man evolution is a fairy tale.”

Ham said that evolution shouldn’t even be addressed as a theory since “there’s no evidence for evolution, so it’s not even a theory, it’s actually a belief, it’s someone’s belief, it’s a blind faith belief and there is no evidence for evolution.”

He reasoned that evolution can’t be possible because he can’t see it occurring before his eyes.

“You don’t observe evolution,” he said. “When you look in the glass cases in museums, you don’t see evolution, you see fossils, you see creatures that live on the earth. Evolution is pasted on the glass case, not in the glass case. It’s man’s interpretation, man’s belief, man’s religion.”

Tony Perkins: America May Never Have Another Election If We Don't Elect Ted Cruz

The Family Research Council's Tony Perkins introduced Glenn Beck at a campaign rally for Ted Cruz in South Carolina light night, where he warned that if America does not elect a bold Christian leader like Cruz, the nation might not have another presidential election ever again.

"I'm here because I decided that too much was a stake to sit on the sidelines," Perkins said, "that I couldn't just sit there and talk about it and do commentary about it; that I wanted to use what influence I had with Christians around this country to say that I've talked to all these candidates, I have vetted the candidates and from my vantage point in Washington, D.C., I can tell you America is in trouble."

"We don't have the latitude to get it wrong one more time," he warned. "If we don't elect a bold, courageous, godly leader in this next election, I'm afraid we may not have another election for our republic. That's not hyperbole. That's the reality based upon what this president's policies have done to this nation."

Perkins, who helped rally Religious Right leaders behind Cruz's campaign, made a similar prediction back in 2012, when he repeatedly warned that America would not survive a second Obama presidential term.

Paranoia-Rama: Beyoncé's Antichrist Agenda, Dictator Bernie Sanders & Obama's Gay Prostitute Past Revealed

The right-wing meltdown over Beyoncé’s Super Bowl half time show performance and longstanding fears about President Obama and Bernie Sanders have contributed to yet another bizarre week for Paranoia-Rama.

Franklin Graham: 'Only One Election Left' To Save America From Godless Secularists

At the Tallahassee, Florida, stop of his 50-state “Decision America” tour last month, evangelist Franklin Graham declared that such prayer gatherings may soon become illegal if conservative Christians don’t defeat “secularism” in the next election.

Declaring that “America is being stripped of its biblical heritage and God-inspired foundations,” Graham said that although Americans were relieved by the fall of communism, “then secularism came and it infiltrated and it infected our government.”

“Secularism and communism, there’s no difference,” he said. “They’re both exactly the same, they’re both godless. And the Enemy came in and didn’t even have to fire a shot, and he’s already got control.”

The secularists, he claimed, want to prevent people from praying anywhere other than inside a church, so that “having a service like this in a few years could be illegal.”

“America needs the Christian vote,” he said. “You see, it’s not that the enemy is at the gate. They’ve come through the gate because we’ve left the gates wide open and we have allowed our moral walls to deteriorate and fall down.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve got maybe one election left,” he declared. “And I’ve been told by people who know that the game will be over. And I’m telling you right now, we’re very close to losing.”

Ted Cruz: Supreme Court Might 'Strike Down The Second Amendment' If Democrats Win In 2016

In an interview last week with conservative activist Michael Quinn Sullivan, Sen. Ted Cruz discussed the importance of the next president’s Supreme Court nominees, claiming that the U.S. is “one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down the Second Amendment.”

Cruz criticized the current “lawless” and “out-of-control activist court” that is “just one justice away from a five-justice, radical, left-wing majority the likes of which this country has never seen.”

The Texas Republican then warned viewers of a doomsday scenario if a Democratic president nominates new justices to the bench:

We are one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down the Second Amendment, ruling that no individual American has any right whatsoever to keep and bear arms, we are one justice away from that. We are one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down Ten Commandments monuments all over the United States, just like the one we have in front of the Texas State Capitol that I was proud to stand with Greg Abbott, defend before the Supreme Court and win 5-4 upholding it.

We are one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down school choice programs all over the country. We are one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down every restriction on abortion and mandating unlimited abortion-on-demand up until the moment of delivery, partial-birth abortion with taxpayer funding and no parental notification whatsoever. We are one justice away from that. We are one justice away from the Supreme Court tearing down veterans’ memorials all over this country if they have any acknowledgment of God and we’re not far away from bringing the chisels out to remove the crosses and Stars of David from the tombstones of our fallen soldiers.

Cruz said that while past Republican presidents failed to nominate “proven conservative” justices, he plans to only nominate firm right-wing judges.

“Every justice I put on the court will be a principled conservative jurist,” he said.

'This Is Your Last Call, America': Glenn Beck Begs South Carolina To Support Ted Cruz, God's Chosen Candidate

Last night, Glenn Beck appeared with Ted Cruz at a campaign rally held at Rick Joyner's MorningStar Fellowship Church in South Carolina, where the conspiracy theorist radio host spent a good half hour weeping and shouting as he called upon Christians to rally behind the candidate that God is raising up to save America: Ted Cruz.

After claiming that he was the only one to have accurately predicted the 9/11 attacks, the 2008 economic crisis and the supposed rise of the caliphate, Beck warned that America is doomed if we elect anyone other than Cruz.

"This is your last call, America," Beck proclaimed. "This is your last call."

"I'm here as a fellow citizen," Beck said, his eyes welling with tears, "and I'm begging you, please do not dismiss the peril we are in. Fall to your knees and pray to God to reveal to you what the hour is. Ask our dear Lord to show you who the man is that has the integrity, who has the connection, who will fall to his knees at the Resolute Desk, who, before he acts, doesn't think of a poll but looks to the Constitution and the holy scriptures; our Bible and the Constitution both come from God, they are both sacred scriptures!"

"I know there is a God. I testify to you that I see a storm coming," he continued, saying that God has a plan to save this nation but it requires Christians to do everything they can to elect Cruz.

"This is your last call, America," Beck bellowed. "Stand for the man I believe was raised for this hour: Ted Cruz."

Ben Carson: Democrats 'Intentionally Destroying' Black Families To 'Cultivate Their Votes'

Earlier today on “Breitbart News Daily,” Stephen K. Bannon asked Ben Carson what he thought of the “unseemly” and “shameful” attempts by Democratic presidential candidates to make direct appeals to black voters by doing things like meeting with Al Sharpton, something which Carson would never do.

Carson said that black voters’ “obeisance to the Democratic Party” has “yielded more poverty and broken homes and crime and incarceration and it’s completely unnecessary.”

He then alleged that Democrats want to keep black people impoverished in order to win their votes.

“Throwing away faith and family are deleterious to any community and it’s extra devastating on the black community,” he said. “And I believe that many people of the people who are trying to cultivate their votes know that and are intentionally destroying those pillars of strength to keep people in a dependent position.”

Franklin Graham: Christians Must Take Over Every Mayorship In The Country To Stop 'Evil' LGBT Rights

Franklin Graham is visiting every state in the country this year as part of his “Decision America” tour, in which he is offering technically nonpartisan encouragement to his followers to “live out their faith” in the upcoming elections.

At a stop in Atlanta this week, Graham spoke about the need for conservative Christians to not only vote, but to run for office, saying that if every city in America had a Christian mayor, we wouldn’t have “evil” and “wicked” policies like LGBT nondiscrimination measures. Better Georgia first brought the remarks to our attention.

“Can you imagine the impact if every community and every city across this great land of ours was run by Christian men and women in that office as mayor,” he asked, “the difference that that would make in our cities, if we had Christian mayors?”

Graham brought up Charlotte, North Carolina, where he claimed that “90 percent of Christians” failed to vote, allowing a candidate who is supportive of LGBT rights to be elected. Charlotte’s city council rejected an LGBT nondiscrimination measure last year after opponents fixated on transgender people using the bathroom of their choice, a new flashpoint of anti-LGBT activists.

“And we got a woman and her goal is the gay-lesbian agenda,” Graham said, “trying to get transgenders into the bathrooms so that if a person wakes up in the morning and they feel like they’re a woman that’s a man and he wants to go into a ladies’ restroom then they can do that. And that’s her goal. And I can tell you right now that that’s wicked and that’s evil. Men belong in men’s bathrooms and women belong in women’s bathrooms and we don’t need men and predators going into women’s bathrooms, I’m just telling you.”

“Now, that’s what happens when Christians don’t vote,” he declared. “That’s what we get, this is the kind of garbage we get.”

Of course, not all Christians — and not all Christian mayors — agree with Graham on LGBT rights.
