  • William Gheen asks ALIPAC members to tell their members of Congress: "My family did not fight two World Wars and a Revolutionary War to protect America's Constitution and freedoms for you to facilitate Obama acting as a dictator and aiding an invasion of the United States of America that is killing American jobs and killing American citizens!"
  • Jesse Lee Peterson defends Bill Cosby: "The liberal elite power brokers in the Democratic Party can’t allow Cosby’s call for responsibility to get a foothold in the black community because it threatens the powerful grip they have on black voters."
  • Matt Barber likens Scott Lively to Jesus.
  • David Lane anticipates that soon "'the piercing arrow from God’s quiver' will open all eyes to the advantages of a Christian culture — a way of life stolen in 1963 by the false god of Secularism."

Fischer: Muslim Prayer Service At National Cathedral Was 'Spiritual Sabotage'

On Friday, a Muslim prayer service that was held at the National Cathedral was predictably interrupted by a right-wing Christian activist. Just as predictably, Bryan Fischer is now praising that activist as a modern-day Elijah for taking a stand against this prayer rally, which he called a "desecration" and "spiritual sabotage."

Fischer, who was already on record as opposing the prayer service, said on his radio show today that allowing Muslims to gather to pray to a "demon god who goes by the name of Allah" was a desecration of the National Cathedral, asserting that it is all part of Islam's attempt to destroy America from within.

"This was an act of spiritual and national sabotage," Fischer said. "It's as if they had dug some tunnels under the floor of the National Cathedral and filled them with explosives to completely obliterate our spiritual history and our spiritual traditions":

Rick Scarborough: 'Christians Have Infiltrated The Republican Party In Texas' And Turned It Into A Revival Meeting

Vision America's Rick Scarborough was a guest on Gordon Klingenschmitt's "Pray In Jesus Name" program recently, where he explained that God is blessing the state of Texas because "Christians have infiltrated" and taken over the state GOP.

Scarborough was discussing his efforts to mobilize right-wing pastors to get involved in politics across the nation and noting that he has had a great deal of success in Texas; so much so that if one now attends an annual Republican Party convention in Texas, it feels as if one is attending a revival meeting.

"Christians have infiltrated the Republican Party in Texas and it's like going to revival meetings when you go to our state conventions," Scarborough said. "That's why God's blessing our state and why, I believe, Texas has become a model for other states":

Fischer: God 'Quickened The Campaigns' Of Republicans In Response To Our Prayers

While appearing on Jerry Newcombe's "Vocal Point" radio program last week, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer doubled down on his assertion that the prayers of anti-gay activists at the recent "I Stand Sunday" event caused God to help Republican candidates win their races for elected office in the last election.

"A good part of that evening, the pastors and the people in that congregation and all those across the country got down on their faces before God to repent of our sins, to seek God's favor over this land because of the threat to religious liberty," Fischer said. "And on Tuesday, we saw these resounding election results and I have to think there was a connection. When God's people got on their faces in repentance in faith over the issue of religious liberty, how threatened it is in our land, how important it is, I think God heard those prayers and I believe he quickened the campaigns of those who are willing to stand for religious liberty and Tuesday, I think, was part of the fruit of those prayers and that repentance":

Staver: Like Nazi Germany, America Will Fall If It Does Not Support Israel

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Mat Staver made the incoherent case that the United States must stand firm in its support of Israel because states that do not do so eventually go out of existence while the nation of Israel continues to exist.

Staver asserted that, throughout history, every nation that has opposed Israel has fallen, starting with Egypt and continuing up through Nazi Germany, warning that America will face the same fate if this nation does not stand by Israel.

"Egypt, the most powerful nation on the planet, that regime of the Pharaohs is gone," Staver asserted. "Now the land of Egypt is still there but the government that was in existence is gone. Israel still exists as an identifiable nation, the language is still there. Babylon, that most powerful nation on the planet, stood against Israel. Babylon is gone, [it's now] modern day Iraq or Baghdad. The Persian government that went against Israel to some extent but also then helped Israel to go back and rebuild the temple, it's gone. It's modern day Iran. You go through year after year, decade after decade, century after century, the Nazi Germany machine, becoming the most powerful government on the planet. The Nazi German machine is gone."

"America needs to stand with Israel," Staver concluded, "because there's been one constant through history, through millennia of human history, and that is Israel has existed no matter the opposition it's faced":

  • Deep thoughts from Glenn Beck: "Hatred is an illness. Love is the cure. Let's be the pharmacy and give away the store."
  • Rick Joyner says that if President Obama issues an executive order on immigration "it could very well lead to the impeachment of the President."
  • Get ready for "Old Fashioned," the Christian film that is going to take down "Fifty Shades of Grey."
  • Mark Creech warns that "homosexual activists will never be satisfied with same-sex marriage only ... Their objective is to silence all opposition to their sexual sin either by delusion or legal means."
  • Bryan Fischer blames the Supreme Court for school violence.
  • Finally, BarbWire continues to serve as the leading outlet for virulenty anti-gay columnists like Julio Severo: "If Sodom gave the world an untrained and unsophisticated homosexual militancy, America can be proud that she has surpassed Sodom, by giving the world an aggressive, trained and sophisticated homosexual militancy."

Fischer: People Recoil At Transgenderism Because God Does

Bryan Fischer kicked off his radio broadcast today with a discussion of Deuteronomy 22, in particular the prohibition against women wearing men's clothes or men wearing women's clothes, asserting that this is God's way of saying that He does not approve of transgenderism, which is why people recoil upon seeing transgender individuals.

Deuteronomy 22: 5 states:

A woman shall not wear a man's garment, nor shall a man put on a woman's cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.

Fischer assured his audience that this does not apply to people who are just "fooling around" by dressing up as the opposite sex or prohibit unisex styles of clothing, but rather it is a prohibition on people presenting themselves as members of the opposite sex, because doing so in "an abomination."

"What the word 'abomination' refers to is this just internal kind of glitch that we get when we see that," Fischer said. "That comes from God because God reacts to that the same way that we do. We see transgenderism on display and there's something inside us that recoils against that. There's something inside us that says that is not normal. There's something inside us that says that is not right. And God feels exactly the same way about that as we do. That inner recoil that we experience when we see that on display, we got that capacity from God because we are made in his image":

Just last week, Fischer made a very similar argument for why people supposedly recoil at the thought of "homosexual behavior."

A Helpful Lesson From Glenn Beck On Nicki Minaj And The Importance Of Keeping Kosher

It has been a few months since Glenn Beck went off on one of his trademark tangents in which he attempts to deliver some important lesson but merely ends up rambling rather incoherently.

On his television broadcast last night, Beck grew increasingly manic during his opening monologue as he tried to explain to his audience his utter horror over the new Nicki Minaj video which features lots of Nazi-like imagery.

Saying that the video is "the most degrading thing I have seen," Beck then sought to explain that this video was somehow a violation of the Torah's requirement to keep kosher because it was mixing "graphic, awful sex with the images of death."

God commands Jews to keep kosher, Beck explained, because "milk is life" and "meat is death" and so "you don't put life and death together." And that is exactly what Nicki Minaj did in her video, Beck said, which is why, when you see it, "every warning bell in you goes off."

"That's not keeping kosher," he said. "You're mixing life and death. You put those two together, it is the height of evil, okay? That's what God is trying to tell us with keeping kosher. That's sacred! Creating life is sacred. Death, not good! Don't put those two together. Well, that's what happened. When you see that video, that's exactly what happened":
