Lapin: Marriage Equality Is A 'Flagrant Attempt' To 'Ultimately Obliterate Christianity'

Stu Burguiere sat in for Glenn Beck on last night's television program where he interviewed Rabbi Daniel Lapin ostensibly about reports that a gay couple was going to sue the Church of England for the right to get married in the church.

Lapin said that instances like this, as well as the various cases that have occurred in the United States, are not about equal rights at all but rather are part of an all-out effort to destroy Judeo-Christian values and the Bible.

"This is a flagrant attempt to censor, undermine, and ultimately obliterate Christianity," Lapin said. "That's the purpose of this."

Lapin went on to say that words like "equality" and "fairness" are meaningless terms that are embraced by tyrannical governments in order to work up a docile population into destroying its own freedom:

Right Wing Round-Up - 3/20/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 3/20/14

  • Jesse Lee Peterson warns that "if conservative Christians don’t get a spine, we will lose America."
  • The Center for Immigration Studies says letting parents of children who are American citizens stay in the country would encourage undocumented immigrants to have more children who "would, inevitably, be poor and many of them illegitimate."
  • Michael Brown is outraged by Rand Paul's suggestion that the GOP agree to disagree on social issues in order to attract younger voters, saying "the fact that he is presently at or near the top of the Republican heap is downright scary."
  • Glenn Beck is being poisoned!
  • Finally, speaking of Beck, we guarantee you that he will continue to assert that White House press briefings are scripted even though everyone involved denies it and the local reporter who made the claim has retracted it and admitted that she made a mistake.

LaBarbera: Anti-Gay Activists Have Been 'Sold Out' By Chick-Fil-A's Dan Cathy

Last week, Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he was not going to be weighing in publicly on the issue of marriage equality any longer, saying he had learned from his mistakes when his set off a controversy over the issue back in 2012.

Cathy's new position is not sitting well with Bryan Fischer or Peter LaBarbera, who accused him of selling out the entire anti-gay movement.

"For him now to say I'm going to pull back," fumed LaBarbera, "seems to be just a complete sell out."

LaBarbera went on to lament that gay activists are playing hardball while anti-gay Christians are playing tee-ball "and we're getting wiped out and every time a leader goes silent, you know, he's hurting the cause."

"Now I'm wondering," LaBarbera added, "did Dan Cathy do more harm than good in this whole thing?"

Beck Praises Mat Staver As A 'True Force For Good' Who Is Raising Up An 'Army Of The Lord'

A few months ago, Glenn Beck took a very public stand against the anti-gay crackdown in Russia, declaring that no reasonable person would support what is happening there and boldly asserting that he didn't even know anybody who was anti-gay.

As we pointed out at the time, Beck actually knew several people who were anti-gay since he was personal friends with them and had them on his show quite regularly.

In the months since, Beck has turned his attention to the case involving Justina Pelletier, which has become something of a major Religious Right campaign; so much so that Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver has taken over as the Pelletier's attorney.

As such, Staver and others from Liberty Counsel have made multiple appearances on Beck's radio and television programs, despite the fact that Staver and his organization are among the most vehemently anti-gay activists operating today.

It is no small irony that Staver and his colleague Matt Barber have openly advocated for enacting Russia-style laws here in America, which was the very topic that made Beck declare just a few months ago that he would stand with GLAAD while proclaiming that anyone who supported such laws could not consider themselves to be a fan of his.

So naturally, when Staver appeared on Beck's radio program yesterday, Beck had nothing but praise for him, saying it was "truly an honor" to work with them and calling both Liberty Counsel and Liberty University, where Staver serves as vice-president, "a true force for good" that are serving "front and center when it comes to the Army of the Lord and being a shield for many, many people, including most of our children":

Beck: My Network 'Is Being Led By A Higher Power'

With every passing day it becomes more and more obvious that Glenn Beck is willfully ignorant and will continue to repeat things on air that have already been debunked because he simply will not allow the truth to get in the way of his agenda.

As we noted just the other day, Beck has been claiming that the world was shocked to recently learn that, back during the 2008 economic crisis, Russia approached China about the possibility of selling off massive amounts of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac securities in order to create even more chaos. Beck claimed that if people simply watched the programming on his network, they would have known this fact a whole eight months ago.

Last night, he made this same point again, only now adding that his staff "is being led by a higher power" that is allowing them to always be well ahead of the rest of the news media:

Of course, as we pointed out last time, this particular piece of information had been known for years because former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson revealed it in the book he published back in 2010:

Russia urged China to dump its Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bonds in 2008 in a bid to force a bailout of the largest U.S. mortgage-finance companies, former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said.

Paulson learned of the “disruptive scheme” while attending the Beijing Summer Olympics, according to his memoir, “On The Brink.”

The Russians made a “top-level approach” to the Chinese “that together they might sell big chunks of their GSE holdings to force the U.S. to use its emergency authorities to prop up these companies,” Paulson said, referring to the acronym for government sponsored entities. The Chinese declined, he said.

Russia’s five-day war with U.S. ally Georgia started on Aug. 8, the same day as the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Games. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin told U.S. President George W. Bush during those ceremonies that “war has started,” according to Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman.

“The report was deeply troubling -- heavy selling could create a sudden loss of confidence in the GSEs and shake the capital markets,” Paulson wrote. “I waited till I was back home and in a secure environment to inform the president.”

This piece of information has been known for over four years, but Beck is claiming that his network is divinely-guided because it was able to report it eight months ago?

Anne Graham Lotz: Missing Airplane Just A 'Small Snapshot' Of What The World Will Experience Following The Rapture

Back in 2011, when a series of tornadoes ripped through several southern states and killed more than 300 people, we were told that this was just "a little taste" of what God's judgment upon humanity was going to look like.

Today, it seems that the mystery surrounding missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is just a little taste of what The Rapture is going to look like, according to Anne Graham Lotz.

Lotz, the daughter of Billy Graham and sister of Franklin Graham, wrote on her blog that the mystery and confusion over what happened to the plane is just a "small snapshot" of what the world will experience in the wake of The Rapture when millions of Christians instantaneously disappear:

Where have all the people gone?The pictures of grieving friends and family members of those who are missing are heart-wrenching.  I have prayed for God’s peace and comfort for them, as well as God’s direction of the search and rescue teams who are desperately looking for clues that will solve the mystery.  But the unanswered questions seem to intensify the horror…

How could a modern airliner drop out of sight so quickly and completely?

What happened to the plane itself?

Was it hijacked?

Was it blown out of the sky?

Did something happen to the pilots so that without guidance the plane plunged intact into the depths of the sea?

Bottom line: Where are all the people?

The answers don’t seem to be forthcoming as I write this.  But as I have prayerfully pondered all of the above, I can’t help but wonder…Is this worldwide sense of shock and helplessness, of questions and confusion, of fear and grief, a glimpse of things to come?  Is this a small snapshot of what the entire world will experience the day after the rapture of the church? Because the Bible is clear.  There is coming a moment in time when Jesus will come back to gather to Himself all those—dead and alive--who have put their trust in Him.  And on that day, the world will be asking, Where have all the people gone?  Not just 239 of us, but millions of us.

Right Wing Leftovers - 3/19/14

  • Phyllis Schlafly must protect her good name from her own nephew because "alcohol has a connotation that is the opposite of conservative values."
  • Bryan Fischer sours on Rand Paul and warms to Ted Cruz.
  • Speaking of Cruz, he told a gathering of home-schoolers in Iowa that "school choice is the civil rights issue of the 21st century."
  • A homicide detective will apply "his cold case investigation skills to the Bible" to determine if the evidence of "Jesus' death [will] stand up to today's standards for reliable eyewitness testimony" at a series of events called "Cold Case Christianity."
  • Finally, Peter LaBarbera is upset that a transgender contestant was named "Miss Congeniality": "The saddest thing of all is that people like this, even young men and girls, are championed and celebrated when they demonstrate this sort of gender confusion and sexual confusion. It's a sad day in America to see these kinds of cases celebrated."

Fischer: The Role Of Government Is 'To Only Approve That Which God Approves'

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer made the case that nothing that the Bible considers to be sinful can ever be tolerated or made legal by the government because anyone who holds public office is a "minister of God" with "a responsibility to use that authority in a manner that is consistent with the truth of God."

As such, any law that gives any sort of protection or equality to gays is a violation of that responsibility because, in granting such rights, elected officials are abusing their positions in order "to approve something that God criticizes, to approve something that God condemns."

Therefore, Fischer said, gays have no right to ever expect equal treatment from the government because "the responsibility of those in civil authority is to only approve that which God approves and to stand against that which He rejects":
