Fischer: Obama's Tan Suit 'Is Not Presidential Dress'

Bryan Fischer was very disappointed in President Obama choice of attire during yesterday's press conference, saying that his suit demonstrated that Obama simply "does not take the responsibilities of the office of the presidency seriously."

"This is not presidential dress. It's not professional," Fischer declared, asserting that President Ronald Reagan had so much respect for the office that he would not even take off his suit coat while he was in the Oval Office:

The myth about Reagan is, of course, totally false ... as is, apparently, Fischer's claim that wearing a tan suit is somehow unpresidential:

Herman Cain Explains President Obama's Ingenious Plan To Get Himself Impeached Before The Election

Herman Cain was a guest on Rick Wiles' End Times radio broadcast yesterday where he warned that President Obama will soon issue an executive order providing a path to citizenship to millions of undocumented immigrants in order to mobilize Hispanic voters to turn out in the upcoming midterm elections. As a bonus, such a move will force Republicans in Congress to impeach Obama, which is exactly what Democrats want because it'll distract the media from Obama's incompetence and corruption.

Cain told Wiles that Obama will issue such an order because he knows that by the time Congress or the courts take steps to stop his decision, he will have already mobilized millions of Hispanic voters, including those who are here illegally, to vote for the Democrats in the November elections.

When Wiles said that such a move would be an "act of dictatorship" that would most certainly result in impeachment, Cain explained that that is exactly what Obama and the Democrats want to see happen.

"The Democrats would love for the media to be obsessed with impeachment proceedings leading up to November," Cain stated "because the Democrats do not want the media to be focusing on failed economic policy, no foreign policy, [and] corruption that's going on it all of the various departments":

Barber: Fayetteville Non-Discrimination Ordinance Is Forcing Citizens to Engage In 'A Mass Delusion'

Last week, the city council in Fayetteville, Arkansas passed a nondiscrimination ordinance that included protections for, among other things, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

Needless to say, Matt Barber and Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel are furious about its passage and spent an entire radio program declaring that Fayetteville has now literally made it legal for any man to enter a women's restroom or locker room at will while anyone who objects or tries to prevent a man from entering will be fined and criminally charged.

Staver announced that Liberty Counsel was working with local pastors to secure enough signatures to put the ordinance on the ballot in November in order to have it repealed, which Barber said was an absolute necessity because this ordinance is forcing city residents to engage in a "mass delusion under penalty of law."

"This is the sexual anarchist movement's attack on reality," Barber said, "but, larger than that, attack on God's design for human sexuality, for male, for female, trying to make everything gender neutral and create an androgynous society, running against reality that everybody knows to be true."

"We have lost our minds as a nation":

Gina Miller: We'll End Rape Culture When Women Stop Dressing Like Strumpets, Prostitutes, And Porn Stars

BarbWire's Gina Miller used her column today to respond to a piece on the Huffington Post asserting that what is needed is not a new nail polish for women that can detect the presence of date rape drugs in their drinks but rather a concerted effort toward "solutions to shifting rape culture where consent, on both sides, is seen as the norm."

Miller was decidely unimpressed by the supposed need to "stop blaming the victim [and] educate men on how not to rape" because the only real solution is to get our society to turn to Jesus ... plus, all those drunken sluts who are dressing like prostitutes are partially responsible for getting raped because they are sending mixed messages:

Why do you suppose that there might be a “blame the victim” mentality today?  Do women ever bear any responsibility for putting themselves in potentially dangerous places and situations, like drunken frat parties?  Do they bear no responsibility for the outrageous “fashions” they choose to wear nowadays, clothing that makes them look like prostitutes and porn “stars,” clothing that arguably feeds the “rape culture”?  Yes, we know that a man who sexually assaults a woman is always wrong, but why is it considered just fine for a woman to present herself in a hyper-sexual, sleazy way and then expect men to treat her with the dignity and honor she imagines she deserves?  The disconnect from reason is palpable.

To many on the Left, the answer to most problems is “education,” but what young man doesn’t already know that it’s wrong to sexually assault another person?  Who is unclear that “no” means “no”?  There again, can it be argued that a woman dressed like a strumpet, yet saying “no” to unwanted sexual advances, sends a mixed message?  Yes, I know it’s outrageous, but this is what our Godless culture has wrought.  There are a lot of bad people out there, and no amount of “education,” telling them it’s wrong (they already know this), will change their evil hearts.

...

[T]here will be no shifting of any rape culture by throwing money at more “rape culture awareness,” or telling young men that it’s wrong to rape, or holding colleges accountable, or not “blaming the victim.”  Our nation has turned its back on God.  We have kicked Him out of our schools and out of the public square.  We have raised several generations of Godless, self-centered, sex-obsessed kids, and the truth is that there can be no positive transformation of any sick culture without the saving power of the Spirit of God through Jesus Christ to change people’s hearts of stone into new hearts of flesh.

Klingenschmitt Denounced By Colorado Republican Leader Whose Seat He Hopes To Fill

The other day we noted that Gordon Klingenschmitt had been forced to issue a half-hearted apology after sending out an email asserting that gay Democratic congressman Jared Polis would soon be aligning himself with ISIS and begin beheading Christians in America.

Klingenschmitt, who is currently the GOP nominee for a seat in the Colorado legislature, was immediately denounced by both Democratic and Republican leaders in the state and now he has been specifically denounced by former House Minority Leader, Mark Waller, who held the very seat for which Klingenschmitt is now running:

Former House Minority Leader Mark Waller on Aug. 27 blasted the fellow Republican who is seeking to succeed him over his recent "horribly inappropriate" anti-gay comments.

Waller, who is not seeking re-election for his Colorado Springs-based House District 15 seat, also told Colorado Community Media that Gordon Klingenschmitt's candidacy "certainly does have an impact" on other races on the fall ballot.

...

Waller said his "11-year-old son can identify that as a hateful speech."

"I think it was horribly inappropriate to say," Waller said. "It doesn't matter if he's a person running for state representative or a person on the street. I think it's terrible to say.

"Obviously, he does not speak for me or the Republican Party."

Waller hasn't endorsed Klingenschmitt, but he wouldn't go as far as saying that he should drop out of the race - as Klingenschmitt's opponent, Democrat Lois Fornander has.

"If you're not voting for him, you're voting for the Democrat and quite honestly legislative majorities matter," Waller said. "But that puts (House District 15 voters) in a rock and a hard place in terms of who to vote for."

House District 15 is heavily Republican and Klingenschmitt is still favored to win, in spite of his recent comments.

For his part, Klingenschmitt says that he is sorry for his comments but blames it on the fact that he wrote the email late at night.

"I'm a first-time candidate," Klingenschmitt said, "and I am new at this":

Klingenschmitt apologized earlier in the week and did so again during a phone interview. He said he was trying to point out the "bad policies of Jared Polis," but that he realizes his comments were offensive.

Klingenschmitt has taken issue with Polis' backing of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. He said the legislation should have religious exceptions.

"I apologize for the hyperbole and I wrote that statement when I was tired between 1 and 2 in the morning, but I do not apologize for defending Christians for persecution."

When asked if it dawned on him that he was using language that has historically been used to persecute gays while trying to defend Christians from "persecution," Klingenschmitt said, "I don't accept the premise of the question."

Klingenschmitt said he hopes voters will see past his comments.

"I'm a first-time candidate and I am new at this," he said. "I made a mistake and I won't always say the right thing, but I do have a backbone and I will always stand on conviction."

Walid Shoebat: The Antichrist Will Be A Muslim

Walid Shoebat is a former Muslim who converted to Christianity and now makes a living peddling his anti-Islam "expertise" to various right-wing groups.

Despite the fact that his tale of having grown up as a Muslim terrorist is highly suspect, Shoebat is regularly welcomed onto shows like the American Family Association's "Today Issues," as he was this morning, to explain to AFA president Tim Wildmon that Jesus predicted that Christians would be beheaded by Muslims and that the Antichrist would be a Muslim.

Citing Revelation 20, Shoebat declared that "Jesus prophetically proclaimed that the Christians will be beheaded in the End of Days," which seems to be an odd misreading of this passage, as it was John, the author of Revelation, not Jesus, who said that "I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God" when he was taken up to Heaven.

Even Wildmon seemed confused by Shoebat's claim, but Shoebat continued on undaunted, declaring that a key component of the Antichrist will be the denial of the Father and the Son, which must mean that the Antichrist will be a Muslim.

"How hard is it to unravel the Scripture?," Shoebat asked. "When I read it, I read it as a Muslim - as a Muslim! - and I saw myself in Scripture as the enemy of God and I repented."

The rise of ISIS and its attacks on Christians, Shoebat predicted, will eventually lead to a Christian revival in America.

"So yes, this is a curse," he asserted, "but sometimes it's like the manure: it stinks to high Heaven but it makes sweet fruit in the end. I know, in the end, that America will be victorious. How do I know that? From the Bible":

Pat Robertson Is Strangely Excited About The Prospect Of ISIS Taking Over The Middle East

On today's "700 Club," Pat Robertson seemed oddly excited about the prospect of the radical Islamic group ISIS taking control over Iraq and Syria because it would be signal that the End Times are near.

Robertson cited Isaiah 19, which states that, in the End Times, Egypt and Assyria will join together and turn to the Lord, along with Israel and they will be "a blessing on the earth":

23 In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. 24 In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. 25 The Lord Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.”

The nation of Assyria no longer exists, but Robertson said that with ISIS taking over large portions of Iraq and Syria, it could soon be brought back to together, which means that there is an opportunity for the international community to gather together all of the Kurds in Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Turkey to serve as "the lynchpin" that could bind all of these nations together.

"Call it Assyria," Robertson suggested, "and let them encompass current Syria and current Iraq and we would be fulfilling Bible prophecy."

"It might well happen," he said. "Was that prophetic or I'm just playing games?"

Fischer: 'The Most Patriotic Thing We Can Do Today Is To Worship The Lord Our God'

Bryan Fischer began his radio broadcast today with a reading from Leviticus 26 and a discussion about how this passage teaches that one must be a Christian in order to be a patriotic American.

Citing the passage from Leviticus in which God says that he will bless a nation "if you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands," Fischer declared that if someone wants to be a patriotic American today, that means they must "worship the Lord your God and serve him only."

"No counterfeit religions, no cults, no counterfeit versions of Christianity, no occultic Eastern religions," Fischer proclaimed. "You shall worship the Lord your God and serve him only."

Given that Fischer believes that every faith that differs from him the one he holds is a counterfeit faith, it stands to reason that those who do not share his faith must also be incapable of being true American patriots, like Fischer.

"So that's the most patriotic thing you can do today, ladies and gentlemen," he concluded, "is worship God and obey him. And when you do that, you will be making the biggest contribution you can make to the country you love":

Jody Hice Now Outraged By The Very Thing He Sought To Provoke

Back in 2008, The Alliance Defending Freedom launched a project called Pulpit Freedom Sunday that encouraged pastors to explicitly discuss political issues and candidates during their Sunday sermons in an effort to provoke the IRS into revoking their church's tax-exempt status so that the ADF could then take the IRS to court in order to challenge regulations prohibiting tax-exempt churches from engaging in direct, partisan political activism.

Among the pastors who agreed to participate was Jody Hice, a right-wing radio host who is now the GOP nominee for an open House seat from Georgia, who openly brags about his involvement on his campaign website:

In September 2008 – and in years since, Dr. Hice joined with pastors across the nation in challenging an IRS code that he considers an attack upon religious liberty. The IRS threatened churches with loss of tax-exempt status and with criminal sanctions if political issues were addressed from the pulpit. Hice took his bold stand by formally endorsing a candidate in a Sunday message and sending a copy of it to the IRS. The IRS backed down.

This Pulpit Freedom Sunday effort has taken place every year since 2008 and the IRS has consistently refused to take action against any of the churches or pastors who participated, much to the dismay of church-state separation organizations.

Eventually the Freedom From Religion Foundation filed its own lawsuit against the IRS, seeking to compel the agency to enforce these regulations and then withdrew the lawsuit after the IRS convinced the FRFF that it had not been ignoring the issue.

As Sarah Posner explained today, this latest development is now being spun by the Religious Right to claim that the IRS is colluding with atheist groups in order to target and persecute churches.

Among those fuming about this supposed persecution is none other than Jody Hice, who spent an entire radio broadcast last week declaring that it is a violation of the separation of church and state and accusing the IRS of threatening, bullying, and intimidating Christians into silence:

Of course, the entire point of the Pulpit Freedom Sunday was to get the IRS to take action against churches so that ADF could sue. And now that it looks like the IRS might actually do the very thing that ADF has been trying to provoke it to do for several years, Hice is livid even though he has personally participated in the effort to bring about this very result!

Kevin Sorbo And Rick Wiles Agree: Atheists Are Angry Because They Know God Exists

D-list actor Kevin Sorbo recently had a leading role in the right-wing Christian film "God Is Not Dead," in which he played a smug atheist college professor who seeks to destroy the faith of his students.

In promoting the film, which is now out on DVD, Sorbo has been making the rounds on Christian television and radio programs, saying that he based his portrayal in the film on all the angry and bitter atheists that he is always seeing on television.

Yesterday, Sorbo was a guest on End Times fanatic Rick Wiles' radio program, where the two concluded that atheists are so angry because they secretly know that God does exist and hate him for "judging how they live their life."

Sorbo said he doesn't understand why atheists are so "filled with just hatred and anger," saying that he feels sorry for them but also can't help but laugh at them for spending "so much time ranting and raving about something that they don't believe in."

Wiles agreed, saying that he doesn't "believe in the Tooth Fairy but I don't spend all my time from trying to stop people from believing in the Tooth Fairy."

Of course, one could just as well make the same point in response to Sorbo and Wiles, noting that while they don't believe in atheism, they sure do seem to be spending a lot of time ranting and raving about it.

In the end, both Wiles and Sorbo agreed that the real reason atheists are so angry is because, deep down, they know that God exists.

"The truth is," Wiles said, "they know he exists and they hate him. That's what it's all about."

"That is exactly what it is," Sorbo responded. "I know these guys must believe in something, otherwise they wouldn't get so angry about it and they don't like the fact that there is a higher power out there that is judging how they live their life":

Fischer: Valerie Jarrett Ordered Bin Laden Raid Without Even Consulting President Obama

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer eagerly helped spread the emerging right-wing narrative that murdered journalist James Foley could have easily been rescued but President Obama was too busy playing golf to approve the rescue mission in time to save him.

But in Fischer's telling, the tale grew even more bizarre when he then asserted that it was really White House advisor Valerie Jarrett who ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and did so without even telling President Obama.

"The best information we have," Fischer stated, "is that Valerie Jarrett pulled the trigger and told the Seal Team Six 'you got to go in and get him.' It was Valerie Jarrett that said 'look, we have an opportunity here, we can't afford to pass up this opportunity. I'm not even going to consult with Barack Obama. I'm not even going to consult with the president on this one, he's out playing golf, I'm just going to give the go signal' ... So Valerie Jarrett was functioning as the de facto Commander in Chief":

While this bizarre theory plays into Fischer's long-held belief that President Obama was so uninvolved in the Bin Laden raid that he had to be Photoshopped into the iconic photo of the situation room, it rather conflicts with the other right-wing conspiracy theory that it was Jarrett who repeatedly thwarted attempts to capture or kill Bin Laden.

That claim is not true either, but Fischer ought to at least try a little harder to get his conspiracy theories straight.

Klingenschmitt 'Apologizes' For Accusing Rep. Jared Polis Of Wanting To Join ISIS & Behead Christians

Over the weekend, Gordon Klingenschmitt, the demon-obsessed anti-gay exorcist who is the GOP nominee for a seat in the Colorado legislature, sent out an email from his Pray In Jesus Name organization in which he declared that gay Democratic congressman Jared Polis would soon be aligning himself with ISIS and begin beheading Christians here in America:

“The openly homosexual Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) introduced a revised bill to force Christian employers and business owners to hire and promote homosexuals with ZERO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS for Christians who want to opt out.

“Polis ‘wants sexual orientation and gender identity treated the same way as race, religion, sex, and national origin, when it comes to employment protections,’ claims the Advocate, under the headline “Polis trims ENDA’s religious exemption.

“Dr. Chaps’ comment: The open persecution of Christians is underway. Democrats like Polis want to bankrupt Christians who refuse to worship and endorse his sodomy. Next he’ll join ISIS in beheading Christians, but not just in Syria, right here in America.”

Needless to say, that comment did not sit well with Democratic or Republican leaders in Colorado who quickly denounced Klingenschmitt:

The accusation prompted Mark Ferrandino, Speaker of the Colorado House, to condemn the remarks and demand that Colorado Republicans do the same.

“I call on Ryan Call and other Republicans to denounce Mr. Klingenschmitt and his homophobic, extreme, and slanderous attacks against Congressman Polis,” said Ferrandino in a statement.

GOP officials in Colorado have disowned Klingenschmitt before and this time was no different.

“As Chairman Call has said in the past, Gordon does not speak on behalf of the Republican Party, and his comments in no way reflect the views of the Party. Gordon needs to give a sincere apology,” said Owen Loftus, a Colorado GOP spokesman, in a statement.

In response, Klingenschmitt filmed a video in which he half-heartedly apologized, saying that he was merely using hyperbole and "some Democrats do not have a sense of humor," before dumping a bucket of water on his head as he challenged Polis, as well as Ferrandino and Call, to take the ALS #IceBucketChallenge:

David Barton: Obama, Kerry Won't Fight Terrorism Because Of Their Support For Abortion Rights

On today's "WallBuilders Live" radio program, David Barton and Rick Green invited Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert on on to discuss America’s role in the Mideast. Barton declared that "terrorism was really on the ropes" before President Obama removed the last U.S. troops from Iraq, but now "terrorism has really rebuilt itself ... [because] this has been an administration that has not done a good job of trying to take terrorists down or take terrorism out."

Barton and co-host Green repeatedly expressed their desire to have someone like Gohmert serving as president instead of President Obama because, they said, Gohmert understands the difference between good and evil, which Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and the rest of the administration can never grasp because they support abortion rights and gay marriage.

"I don't know why that Louie [Gohmert] would think that John Kerry has any moral equivalency given the position that John Kerry holds on marriage, on homosexuality, on abortion, on religious conscience, on religious expressions," Barton said. "I mean, since he opposes everything that's traditionally moral, why would there be a question of whether he's moral" when it comes to terrorism?

While Barton said that he was being a little facetious, Green replied that he was absolutely correct because "if [Kerry is] so wrong on all these other clear moral issues, how can we expect him to figure this one out."

"If you're wrong on an issue as simple as innocent life, then you have real trouble with guilty life as well," Barton explained. "When you take an unborn child this is innocent life and he doesn't think that that's right and wrong to take the life of an innocent unborn child, then when you see something like Hamas, which is guilty people who are murderers being taken out, he thinks that that's abominable."

"His whole value system is skewed," Barton concluded, "and that's the way so much of this administration has been," which is why it has been wrong on everything from economic policy, social policy, and foreign policy.

"You just can't be a world leader if you don't believe that certain things are right and certain things are wrong":

Gary Cass: 'Every Mosque In America ... Is An Armory Of Hell'

Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission was a guest on the right-wing Christian radio program "On The Way With Paul Ridgeway" earlier this month where he made his case that the Islamic radicals in ISIS are the true face of Islam and warned that every mosque in America is "an armory of Hell."

Saying that "we have fourteen hundred years of history to know what Islam is like and what Islam does," Cass called for military intervention against ISIS to be carried out "with ferocity, because that's the only thing that the Muslim mind will respect."

"But the truth is," he continued, "every mosque in America, I say—and this is harsh words but I think I can back it up—is an armory of Hell."

Ridgeway agreed, as he and Cass later asserted that Muslims around the world have remained silent in the face of atrocities being carried out by ISIS because "they secretly agree with it and they want it."

"I think the truth is," Cass said, "that if you went to these mosques and you were able to get them to speak honestly, they would be delighted with what's going on, that Christians are being killed":

Dinesh D'Souza Explains The 'Common Thread Between ISIS And What's Going On In Ferguson'

Dinesh D'Souza was a guest on Steve Malzberg's program on Newsmax yesterday, where he inexplicably linked the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri to the murderous rampage being carried out by ISIS in Iraq.

D’Souza accused President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton of undermining the justice system by "fostering an atmosphere in Ferguson that basically goes 'let's declare that this guy is probably guilty and let's see what we can do to put him up against the wall.' The idea that he would get impartial justice is becoming highly questionable."

Declaring that, historically, it was black people who were denied equal justice under the law, D'Souza said that now we are seeing "a complete flip" so that now white people cannot get justice under President Obama and America is just "going from one set of injustices to another."

That somehow led D'Souza to claim that there is "a common thread between ISIS and what's going on in Ferguson" because, in both situations, people are seeking to correct a perceived injustice by inflicting a whole host of new injustices "and all of this is then licensed by the Left and licensed, to some degree, by the media":

Liberty Counsel: Acceptance Of Gay Christians May Be A Sign Of The End Times

On Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast today, Matt Barber and Deryl Edwards discussed the increasing support for gay rights among Christians and the rise in the number of Christians who are coming out as gay, like Christian singer Vicky Beeching.

To Barber and Edwards, this sort of "great falling away from the clear words of Scripture" just might be a sign that the End Times are rapidly approaching.

"This looks to be," Barber said, "at least to me, that it may be the beginning of this great falling away" that was prophesied in the Bible. Edwards agreed, saying that this is exactly what Paul warned would happen as the End Times grow near.

Citing 1 Timothy 4:1, which warns that "in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons," Edwards said that this seems to be what is happening today.

"Are we in the Last Days?" he asked. "It sure seems like it."

Barber then announced that Christians must pray for Beeching in hopes that she will repent because "she's really in danger here of leading millions of Christ's little ones astray and as Scripture says, it's better to have a millstone around your neck [and to be drowned in the depths of the sea] than to do so":

Joyner: A Global Pandemic Is Coming, So Stock Up On Water Filters That Will Make You Immune To Cancer

On today's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" broadcast, Rick Joyner warned his viewers that the rise of some sort of global pandemic (maybe Ebola or possibly bird flu) in the near future was inevitable and so they should be stockpiling food, water, and supplies so that, when it comes, they will not have to stand in line waiting for assistance and can instead use the crisis as an opportunity to spread the Gospel to those who will need supplies.

In particular, Joyner recommended that people stock up on water filters  - which they can buy through his website, of course - especially ones that can help users reduce the pH level in their bodies, which he says will make them immune to cancer.

"You know what that means?" he asked. "When your pH level get down to a certain level, cancer won't grow. You don't even have to worry about it. Yep, that is true":

That is, of course, not true, as the American Institute for Cancer Research explained back in 2008:

The unsubstantiated theory is based on lab studies that suggest cancer cells thrive in an acidic (low pH) environment, but cannot survive in alkaline (high pH) surroundings. While these findings are accurate, they apply only to cells in an isolated lab setting. Altering the cell environment of the human body to create a less-acidic, less-cancer-friendly environment is virtually impossible.

The most amazing thing about Joyner's statement is that, in addition to being false, it is also exactly backwards since lowering the pH level makes things more acidic. Since the theory purports that cancer thrives in acidic environments, using water filters that lower pH level would theoretically make people more susceptible to cancer rather than, as Joyner claims, making them immune to it.

Sen. Ted Cruz To Join Anti-Gay Activists In Honoring His Father

Next month, Rick Scarborough's Vision America will host its annual "Heroes of Faith Gala" where the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins will receive the 2014 "National Hero of Faith Award" and Rafael Cruz, a Religious Right activist and father of Sen. Ted Cruz, will be honored with the "Don Wildmon Award," named for the founder of the American Family Association.

Today, Vision America sent out an email urging activists to register for the event, revealing that the senator is also going to be in attendance, picking up the Don Wildmon Award on behalf of his father and delivering remarks:

As we have noted before, Ted Cruz has great admiration for Scarborough despite Scarborough's long history of rabidly anti-gay bigotry.

In recent years, Scarborough has defended Russia's anti-gay laws, claimed there should be no such thing as Gay Pride Month because "those who engage in unnatural acts should hang their heads in shame," insisted that gay people should always be referred to as "sodomites," and called for a class action lawsuit to be filed against homosexuality.

Just last month, Scarborough said that God would be entirely justified for destroying America with a nuclear bomb because of the nation's tolerance and embrace of gay rights:

Back in 2011, he declared that AIDS is God's judgment upon those who engage in immoral acts:

And on September 4, Sen. Ted Cruz will be joining Scarborough for a gala honoring his father.

Fischer: End Muslim Immigration Because 'Islam Is Like The Ebola Virus'

In response to a video released yesterday showing Islamist extremists killing and beheading American journalist James Foley, Bryan Fischer used his radio program today to renew his call to ban all Muslim immigration to America by likening the faith to the Ebola virus.

"Islam is like the Ebola virus," Fischer said. "It's deadly. It's lethal. And all you can do with a virus like that, there's no cure for it, it can only be contained, it has to be stopped. And the way you do it is through quarantine."

Just as nations currently will not accept immigrants from places where the Ebola virus is spreading, so too should America ban Muslim immigrants, Fischer declared.

"They don't know which the citizens of that African country have the Ebola virus and which don't," he explained, "and so they say 'look, we just have to be careful, we have to protect our own people, we've got to protect the health of our own people, we cannot let anybody from your country into our country because we cannot take the chance that one of you may be a carrier of the virus.'"

The same goes for Muslims, Fischer said. "It's the people that are carriers that we have to worry about and we can't tell who has it and who doesn't, therefore we got to keep you all out of our country":

Mat Staver & Samuel Rodriguez Film Ads Promoting GOPFaith.com

Last week we noted that David Barton had begun promoting GOPFaith.com, a new effort from the Republican National Committee to mobilize a hundred thousand Religious Right activists on behalf of GOP candidates that is being headed by South Carolina GOP chairman Chad Connelly.

South Carolina GOP chairman Chad Connelly

Now it looks like Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference's Samuel Rodriguez have also climbed on board, as both have now filmed videos promoting the effort as well.

In his video, Staver says that he is "excited about this outreach from the RNC to wake up this sleeping giant because our Judeo-Christian values of liberty and life, they're all at stake" if conservative Christians do not get involved in politics:

For his part, Rodriguez, who inexplicably still manages to maintain a reputation as a moderate, nonpartisan Christian activist, declares that he is "so excited that the Republican National Committee has launched a very powerful and vibrant outreach component. I commend and applaud the leadership of Chad Connelly and really believe that the best days are yet to come":
