Another Glenn Beck Prediction Comes 'True'

Last week, Glenn Beck spent a good part of one of his programs warning his audience that the world was possibly on the verge of a global Ebola pandemic once the virus mutates into an airborne disease that would be brought into the United States by Nigerian prison guards working in Texas.

Yesterday, officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that someone who had recently flown from Liberia to Dallas has been diagnosed with the disease and is now in quarantine.

So naturally, Beck is now taking a victory lap, declaring on his radio program that his warning has been proven correct.

Fuming that he had been mocked for his warning, Beck wanted to know "how many times do you have to be right" before people will listen to you, insisting that other than the infected patient having come from Liberia and not Nigeria, "everything else I had right."

Beck then warned his audience, utterly without irony, to "stop listening to people who are telling you things that continue to be wrong":

Beck warned that airborne Ebola would would be brought into America by Nigerian prison workers. Instead, one traveler from Liberia has been diagnosed and quarantined, yet Beck insists that his prediction has been proven true while fuming that people dare to mock him despite his exemplary record of being right.

Let us remind Beck of his amazing record:

Remember when Beck repeatedly warned that President Obama was seeking to foment a race-based civil war? Or when he warned that the administration was trying to take away guns in order to impose slavery and carry out mass killings? Or when he told his audience to prepare because President Obama was about to snap and start putting them all in internment camps? Or when he told them to start hoarding cash because the government was going to seize their bank accounts, just like in Cyprus?

Remember when he warned that a shooting at the Dallas airport was almost certainly a false flag operation carried out by Occupy Wall Street to press for gun confiscation? Let's not forget his prediction that undocumented children crossing the southern border would lead to an Israel/Palestine-type conflict in America. What about the time Beck warned that military action in Syria was designed to create a one world government? Or his assertion that efforts were underway to outlaw homeschooling in America?

Anyone recall his theory that the missing Malaysian airplane had been hijacked so that it could be "cloaked" and then flown into the United States in a terrorist attack? Or his fears that supposedly missing planes in Libya would be used to destroy the global economy?

And who can forget the days after the Boston Marathon bombing that Beck spent explicitly asserting that one of the injured victims was, in fact, responsible for carrying out the attack, because of which statements he is now being sued for defamation?

Instead of asking "how many times do you have to be right" for people to trust your warnings, we'd ask how many times Beck is allowed to be totally wrong while still insisting that he is consistently proven right?

Kevin Sorbo Is Sorry All You 'Haters' Didn't Get His 'The Jews Killed Jesus' Joke

Last month, Kevin Sorbo was making the rounds promoting the DVD release of his film "God's Not Dead" when he set off a bit of controversy by declaring that the Jews were responsible for killing Jesus.

Sorbo was discussing Jewish concerns that Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" was anti-Semitic; concerns which he entirely dismissed because, as he said, "News bulletin: you did kill Jesus!"

Those comments generated a bit of controversy, to which Sorbo initially responded by blaming everyone else for not being "enlightened" enough to understand the point he was supposedly making:

Sorbo, the star of “God’s Not Dead” and a new film “Let the Lion Roar,” told TheBlaze on Thursday that he made a “flippant comment” that should have been crafted better.

“Here’s the deal. Here’s reality. The Jewish leaders offered Jesus up to Pilate, preferring to free a hardened criminal,” Sorbo said. “Did all Jews at that time hate Jesus? Of course they did not. The people screamed to let the hardened criminal go. That’s in the book. That’s in the facts.”

Sorbo, who is a non-denominational Christian, said that there were many Jews who defended Jesus at the time and who mourned Christ’s death.

“After all, [Jesus] was Jewish and … the Jewish leaders and a handful of Jews [gave him up],” Sorbo said. “It was more like they were accomplices to his murder. They knew he was going to be murdered. There was no question.”

The actor said he assumed people were more “enlightened” on the issue and would realize that he was being over-simplistic in his remarks.

He credited Jews for creating Christianity as well and affirmed his support for Israel.

“I should have worded it better. We live in such an age where everything is scrutinized,” he said. “Liberals love to project a false image on the wall and get very upset with the image they’ve created themselves.”

Last week, Sorbo appeared on "The Phil Valentine Show" where the topic came up and, once again, Sorbo tried to blame everyone else for not understanding his point, insisting that his original comment was entirely accurate because the Jews "were certainly accomplices" to Jesus' death.

"And here's another flash bulletin," Sorbo said, "that was what was supposed to happen. That was the intention of God. Jesus came down here to die for our sin, right? So that's the way it happened ... Don't tell me that the Jewish population at the time, the Pharisees, didn't have a hand in something to do with Jesus' death. I mean, come on!"

Sobro brushed the whole thing off because people with "nothing better to do" are just trying to create problems.

"Haters just love to hate," he said:

Interestingly, the more Sorbo is asked about his comment, the more his explanation evolves, as last night he appeared on Alan Colmes' radio program where the topic was brought up once again and now Sorbo is just trying to pass it all off as a joke:

SORBO: I wasn’t trying to say that Jewish people had a hand in the death of Jesus because quite clearly many mourned his death at the time he was being crucified. There was no question about that. You know, I was going for a joke, a bad taste joke.

COLMES: You think that was a joke? That was a joke?

SORBO: It was just meant to say that they had a part, there was certainly a part of them that was saying, here is Jesus, here was this hardened criminal, and the Pharisees said….

COLMES: How is that a joke? I can understand you may misspoke, but a joke?

SORBO: Well, OK, you know, c’mon. I’ve taking enough beating on this. I’m hardly an anti-Semite.

Maybe people wouldn't have such a hard time understanding what Sorbo "really" meant by his original comment if his explanation didn't keep changing.

Paul Cameron Warns That 'A Gay' May Be Coming For Your Son

Today's "Pray In Jesus Name" program featured the first segment in a multi-part, in-person interview that host Gordon Klingenschmitt conducted with notorious anti-gay "researcher" Paul Cameron of the Family Research Institute and it turned out to be every bit as crazy as one would expect an interview between an anti-gay exorcist and an advocate for executing gays to be.

Klingenschmitt, who is currently the Republican nominee for a seat in the Colorado state legislature, asked Cameron if gay people "use molestation as a recruiting tool," and Cameron assured him that they most certainly do.

"Homosexuals, from the get-go, as long as we have recorded history, have used the molestation of boys as a way to recruit to homosexuality," Cameron declared, claiming that his "studies" have found that sixty percent of boys who reported that their first sexual experience was a same-sex experience grow up to be gay.

"So this is a tremendous recruitment tool," he said. "If a gay can get to your son first, the chances are about 50-50, as near as we can tell, that your son is going to be a practicing homosexual to some degree."

"It's very important to keep your sons from having a homosexual experience," he emphasized:

Klingenschmitt and Cameron then discussed Cameron's work making it illegal for gays to donate blood, which Cameron said is a prohibition that must remain in place today because gays travel the world where they have reckless sex and pick up all sorts of exotic diseases that endanger the rest of society.

"What gays do is so dangerous, I mean, rectal sex. I mean, think of all of the stuff that they do," Cameron said. "You don't know what else is out there. We still don't know all the components in human blood. They've got other stuff, if there's something over in another country in the world, given that gays travel more, given that gays have sex wherever they travel, uh oh, they bring back whatever is out there and there's always something new out there."

"So there still needs to be a ban," concluded Kingenschmitt:

Bryan Fischer Links Oklahoma Beheading To Satanic 'Black Mass'

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer not only linked the incident in which an Oklahoma man attacked and beheaded a former coworker to Islam and drug decriminalization efforts, but also managed to tie it to a recent Satanic "black mass" that took place in Oklahoma City.

"Remember that it was in Oklahoma City where the city fathers said 'you can have your Satanic ritual in the heart of our city,'" Fischer said. "And then literally, I mean this literally, ladies and gentlemen, all Hell has broken loose in the state of Oklahoma. Oklahoma City allows a Satanic ritual and all of a sudden, we start hearing about people having their head cut off in the name of the demon god Allah. Just a coincidence? I'll leave it up to you to make up your own mind":

Ted Cruz And GOP Leaders Record Ads For Far-Right Groups: 'God's People' Must 'Restore' American Values

David Lane is an extremely influential but notoriously media-shy Religious Right activist who regularly organizes secretive events at which leading Republican politicians speak to pastors in key swing states in an effort to mobilize conservative Christian voters. He is also a full-blown Christian nationalist who believes that the Bible should serve as "the principal textbook" for public education and has warned that the United States would see car bombings all over the nation as a result of God's judgment because "homosexuals [were] praying at the inauguration" of President Obama.

So naturally, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Perry have all now recorded radio ads on behalf of Lane's current voter mobilization effort, which is being funded by the political arm of the anti-gay hate group the American Family association no less. 

As CBN's David Brody reported last night:

The Brody File has exclusively obtained brand new radio commercials recorded by possible GOP presidential candidates, urging conservative Christians to get out and vote in the upcoming Midterm Elections. Below you can listen to the spots recorded by Senator Ted Cruz, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Texas Governor Rick Perry.

In one of the radio spots, Senator Ted Cruz tells the Christian audience, “The Bible is full of stories of men and women whose faith in God led them to take action during difficult times, trusting in Him for His glory. Today God’s people are once again being called to action as we seek to restore the values our nation was founded upon and to honor the legacy of those who have given their lives in defense of our freedom.” He then implores the audience to get out and vote.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal says the following in one of his radio spots: “Throughout the Bible, God’s people are driven to action by their faith in difficult times. Today we’re being called to action to restore the values our nation was founded.” Then, once again there is a call to action to vote.

The radio spots will run nationwide on American Family Radio, the Bott Radio Network and the National Religious Broadcasters Network. That means that these spots will be on close to 300 radio stations across the country in more than 35 states and reaching over nearly 70 million people.

The spots are part of the American Renewal Project’s, “Get Out The Vote” effort. The American Family Association political arm called AFA Action funds it. Part of their stated goal is to, “inform, equip, and activate individuals to strengthen the moral foundations of American culture.” David Lane, the influential evangelical organizer behind this effort also holds his popular, “Pastors and Pews” events around the country in multiple states including the early GOP Primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. Those events are geared for pastors to get energized and mobilized so they can get more of their parishioners excited about voting their values.

Fischer: Oklahoma Beheading Shows Dangers Of Decriminalizing Drugs

Last week, after being fired from his job at a food processing plant in Oklahoma, a man named Alton Nolen attacked and beheaded a former coworker. Seizing on reports that Nolen was a convert to Islam who went by the name Jah'Keem Yisrael, Bryan Fischer has now flown into a frenzy that this crime is proof that ISIS is now in the United States.

But it turns out that, according to Fischer, Islam is not solely to blame for this crime as efforts to legalize or decriminalize drugs are also responsible.

You see, Nolen was sentenced to six years in prison on drug charges back in 2011, but was released after less than two. Then, over a year later, he killed a coworker which is why Fischer declared today that he doesn't want to hear any more "nonsense" about legalizing drugs!

"Everybody wants to legalize drugs, we've got to reduce the penalty for drugs, we're over-criminalizing drugs" Fischer said dismissively. "If he had done his full six years ... then Colleen Hufford would still be alive today. So I don't want to hear any more nonsense about legalizing [or] decriminalizing drugs":

You will not be surprised to learn that, contrary to Fischer's position, Nolen's release from prison had nothing to do with efforts to legalize or decriminalize drugs:

He began his six-year sentence for cocaine possession April 26, 2011, records show. Because of plea agreements with prosecutors, he was allowed to serve the three prison sentences at the same time.

He was released on March 22, 2013, records show. Because of credits, he was able to complete all three prison sentences in just two years.

...

Prison records show Nolen was given credit for time spent in jail before prison, good conduct, a transition program and other reasons. One month, he got 151 days total off his time to do, the records show.

Daubenmire: People Not Agreeing With Me Is A Sign Of God's Judgment Upon America

On his "News With Views" program today, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire asserted that the fact that lots of people do not agree with his right-wing views and positions is a sign that God's judgment is already upon America.

Daubenmire was discussing an ongoing battle between a strip club in Ohio and a local pastor who was been relentlessly working to get it shut down when he marveled that people could actually disagree with the pastor, saying that the only logical explanation for this is that God has sent delusions upon people because this nation has turned away from Him, as stated in 2 Thessalonians.

"Have you ever seen a time in America," he asked, "where common sense was so uncommon? Where people were so willing to look the other way regarding what was right and what was wrong?"

Daubenmire is convinced that this "is the judgment of God that's upon us because we have rejected the truth." God's "hedge of protection" around America has been torn down, he said, and now God's judgment is pouring over the wall and sweeping across this nation.

"It's the natural consequences of rejecting the laws of nature and of nature's God":

Staver: 'You And I Are Being Forced To Participate In Human Genocide By The HHS Mandate'

While addressing the Values Voter Summit this morning, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver trotted out his favorite claim that the contraception mandate means that America is literally worse than countries like Nazi Germany or Rwanda because those nations never forced their citizens to directly participate in carrying out genocide.

"Now, in America of all places, you and I are being forced to participate in human genocide by the HHS mandate," Staver said.

"We've never been forced in any time in world history to participate in the killing of innocent people and yet today we are," he continued. "No generation has faced what we currently face now ... and we cannot be silent in the face of this tragedy [of] human genocide being forced upon Americans":

Mat Staver Is Furious About Being Labeled An Anti-Gay Extremist

Mat Staver spent a good portion of his speech at the Values Voter Summit today fuming over a letter sent by People For the American Way, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and five other civil rights and LGBT organizations to Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus, asking members of the GOP not to participate in the conference, citing the anti-gay extremism of its sponsors.

Staver's organization, Liberty Counsel, is among those very sponsors and he is not very happy about being labeled an anti-gay extremist, despite this long and documented record of being one. Staver fumed that he is being attacked merely for believing "in God's natural created order of male and and female and marriage as the union of one man and one woman."

"For me believing in something that is that obvious," he complained, "I am considered by some groups to be a hater. But I hate no one. I hate no one, but I believe in God's truth and I will not be silent in the face of intimidation."

In an effort to prove that he is not an extremist, Staver then went on to liken himself to Jesus when he turned over the tables of the money changers in the temple before declaring that marriage equality teaches that children do not need mothers or fathers.

"That is an absolute lie from the very pit of Hell," he said:

E.W. Jackson: A Thousand Years From Now, Marriage Will Still Be One Man And One Woman 'Because God Ordained It So'

E.W. Jackson closed out last night's session at the Values Voter Summit by lashing out at those pushing for marriage equality, thundering, "How dare you try to redefine an institution that God himself ordained!"

"The fact of the matter is they can call a union other than one man and one woman by any name they choose," Jackson proclaimed," but the reality is you can re-write a thousand dictionaries, you can put on a thousand TV shows, you can make a thousand headlines, you can have a thousand coming out parties, you can have a thousand politicians affirm the lie, but the truth will still stand and a thousand years from now, marriage will still be a union between one man and one woman because God ordained it so!"

Huckabee: Christians Must Register And Vote Against Those Who Do Not Listen To 'God's Heart'

Mike Huckabee spoke at last night's session of the Values Voter Summit, where he made the case that President Obama was re-elected and America is now "on the precipice of disaster" because conservative Christians ignored God's call to vote in the last election.

A good portion of Huckabee's speech was dedicated to rattling off statistics about how few Evangelical and like-minded Christians are registered to vote, which is made worse by the fact that only a small percentage of those who are registered even bother to actually vote.

"When the call is coming to us from God to stand, to speak, to act," Huckabee said, "it's going to voice-mail."

God is calling conservative Christians to be involved in politics, he said, and America is suffering because that is not happening in sufficient numbers, which is totally unacceptable because America was created and sustained by God.

The solution is for Christians to answer God's call to save this nation by getting registered to vote and then going to the polls to vote against politicians "who refuse to hear not only our hearts, but God's heart."

"That's how we change America, my friend," he concluded. "Let's make this a nation once again that unapologetically bows its knee before a holy God":

Jerry Johnson Thinks Obama Is Snubbing Straight People By Using The Term 'LGBT'

Jerry Johnson, president of the National Religious Broadcasters, closed out the "Marriage in America" panel at the Values Voters Summit today by declaring that if young people are supporting marriage equality because they want to be "on the right side of history," then anti-gay marriage activists need to explain to them that they have it exactly backwards.

Right after the audience gave a standing ovation to Aaron and Melissa Klein, bakery owners who became Religious Right celebrities for refusing service to a gay couple, Johnson went on to criticize President Obama for using the term "LGBT."

"He never says 'gay and straight' any more, now it's 'LGBT.' Straight is not even in that mix," Johnson said. "That's an interesting point."

Um, no it is not.

Later, Johnson urged Christians not to live under "some self-imposed sharia law on this issue" and instead start making the case for "natural marriage" by explaining to young people that opposing gay marriage puts them on the right side of history:

How Many Myths Of Anti-Christian 'Persecution' Can Kelly Shackelford Cite In One Speech? At Least Three

Whenever a new tale of supposed anti-Christian "persecution" begins to sweep through the Religious Right echo chamber, the chances are probably pretty good that it originated with The Liberty Institute. So it was only fitting that LI's president Kelly Shackelford kicked off the afternoon session of today's Values Voter Summit by citing at least three of these false tales as proof that Christians are under attack in America today:

The first claim about the young girl who was supposedly told she was not allowed to pray before eating her lunch turned out to be totally false, as it was a story that was completely ginned up by Liberty Institute, Todd Starnes, and the man in charge of marketing Starnes' latest book about ant-Christian persecution.

The second incident Shackelford cited is a myth that has been floating around Religious Right circles for nearly twenty years and was debunked nearly as long ago when school officials explained that the student in question was disciplined for fighting in the lunch room, not for praying.

The final claim about Sgt. Phillip Monk is something that Shackelford has been promoting for several years now, mainly by fundamentally misrepresenting what actually took place.

It is pretty telling that Shackelford's narrative of anti-Christian persecution in America relies on multiple incidents that are demonstrably false.

Bachmann Says America Is Engaged In 'Spiritual Warfare' Against Islam

While addressing the Values Voter Summit for the last time as a member of Congress, Michele Bachmann blasted President Obama for not realizing that America is engaged in "spiritual warfare" against Islam in our fight against ISIS and other terrorist organizations.

"This is spiritual warfare and what we need to do is defeat Islamic jihad," Bachmann proclaimed as she criticized Obama for not acknowledging this fact.

"Yes Mr. President, it is about Islam!"

Bachmann then once again offered her sage advice to defeating ISIS, advice she seems to think that Obama is ignoring as he launches airstrikes against them: "You kill their leader, you kill their council, you kill their army until they wave the white flag of surrender. That's how you win a war!"

Boykin: Obama Doesn't Trust Military Leaders Because They Love America

Family Research Council Executive Vice President Jerry Boykin moderated a panel entitled "America Abroad: Our Role in the Global Quest for Freedom" at today's Values Voters Summit, which he closed out by declaring that President Obama will not listen to the advice of military leaders because those leaders love America, which is something the president can never understand.

Blasting Obama for sending U.S. soldiers to help contain the Ebola outbreak but not sending troops to fight ISIS, Boykin said "this president is thinking like a community organizer, not a Commander-in-Chief that takes the lives and futures of his soldiers, sailors, airman, and Marines seriously."

"We've got a community organizer that has surrounded himself with people that know everything about climate change, everything about Marxism, everything about the LGBT agenda, but virtually nothing about national security," Boykin said. "And he's unwilling to listen to his real professionals, that's the military professionals, because he doesn't trust them because they represent something that he's never been able to understand, and that's a love for America":

Bryan Fischer Says Any Objective Observer Can See That President Obama Hates America

During his remarks before the United Nations yesterday, President Obama made a reference to the killing of Michael Brown and the resulting tensions in Ferguson, Missouri, noting that while America has its difficulties, we are also "a country that has steadily worked to address our problems, to make our union more perfect, to bridge the divides that existed at the founding of this nation."

To Bryan Fischer, this was just another perfect example of Obama's unrelenting contempt for this country, saying on his radio program today that any objective observer can see that Obama fundamentally hates America.

After playing an audio clip of Obama's remarks, Fischer slammed the president for "dragging America's dirty laundry out in front of the eyes of the entire world to make the world think bad thoughts about America, again acknowledging that America is the source of all the evil in the world ... Every time that he talks to the world, he has to say something that is condemning and critical of the United States of America."

"Anybody listening to one of his international speeches and just was being objective," Fischer said, "they would have to come to the conclusion ... [that] this is a guy who that does not like the United States of America":

For the record, here is the section of President Obama's speech that Fischer believes is proof that he fundamentally hates America:

I realize that America’s critics will be quick to point out that at times we too have failed to live up to our ideals; that America has plenty of problems within its own borders.  This is true.  In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri -- where a young man was killed, and a community was divided.  So, yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.  And like every country, we continually wrestle with how to reconcile the vast changes wrought by globalization and greater diversity with the traditions that we hold dear.

But we welcome the scrutiny of the world -- because what you see in America is a country that has steadily worked to address our problems, to make our union more perfect, to bridge the divides that existed at the founding of this nation.  America is not the same as it was 100 years ago, or 50 years ago, or even a decade ago.  Because we fight for our ideals, and we are willing to criticize ourselves when we fall short.  Because we hold our leaders accountable, and insist on a free press and independent judiciary.  Because we address our differences in the open space of democracy -- with respect for the rule of law; with a place for people of every race and every religion; and with an unyielding belief in the ability of individual men and women to change their communities and their circumstances and their countries for the better.

Matt Barber Can't Decide Whether He Loves Or Hates The Freedom From Religion Foundation

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Matt Barber was absolutely livid about letters of complaint sent by the Freedom From Religion Foundation to several school districts in Florida objecting to the practice of appointing chaplains for high school football teams, among other things.

School officials agreed to change these policies and Barber was not at all happy, calling the FFRF a "crazy" anti-Christian segregation organization that engages in "religious cleansing" by using "absurd" and "stupid" arguments, before asserting that groups like FFRF, the ACLU, and we here at People For the American Way are nothing more than "paper tigers" who need to just be fanned away like the "little flies buzzing around your head" and told to "go away."

But then Barber suddenly changed his tune when co-host Mat Staver reminded him that what "Satan intends of evil, God will turn things around for good."

"Amen," Barber responded, "and that has been the case historically from A.D. 1 and before, when it comes to Christianity. Christianity thrives and explodes under persecution and oppression, so I'm starting to wonder now if this Freedom From Religion Foundation might actually be a covert Christian organization that is intending to spread revival and an explosion in the church nationwide in public schools, and in the military, and throughout public forums. Keep it up, guys. Keep it up Freedom From Religion Foundation, you are helping spread the Gospel and the growth of Christianity."

Bryan Fischer Says Obama Is Seeking 'To Minimize The Number Of Dead Terrorists' In Airstrikes

At the end of yesterday's radio program, Bryan Fischer suggested that the Obama administration's airstrikes against ISIS and other militants in Iraq and Syria are being carried out in a manner intentionally designed "to minimize the number of dead terrorists."

Fischer asserted that the administration is carrying out the airstrikes at night and is only targeting empty buildings because "they apparently do not want to kill terrorists."

"Ladies and gentlemen, the terrorists are the enemy," he said, "and these strikes seem to be calculated to minimize, rather than maximize, the inflicting of casualties on our enemies."

Fischer, of course, once again has absolutely no idea what he is talking about, as these strikes have reportedly killed the leader of the al-Nusra Front as well as hundreds of other militants.

'It's Really Sick': Glenn Beck Says Dinesh D'Souza Is 'A Political Prisoner'

Dinesh D'Souza is now basically taking a victory lap around conservative media outlets after having avoided a prison sentence for violating campaign finance laws, appearing on Glenn Beck's radio show today to assert that he was directly targeted by President Obama because Obama is "a petty, vindictive guy."

D'Souza insisted that he was only prosecuted for breaking the law because President Obama lashes out at all of his critics because "he is a very dysfunctional guy with a very dysfunctional family. I mean, he's got family members who have each other followed, they spread rumors and try to undermine each other, they hire people to look out and so this is a very bizarre situation and Obama is a very petty, vindictive guy."

"I don't have to speculate that he doesn't like me, I know that," D'Souza asserted, "and it's hard for me to believe that [the government was] treating me normally, like any other guy who did this."

Glenn Beck agreed, declaring that D'Souza was "the first real political prisoner that I have seen this president make."

"This is a political prisoner, make no mistake," Beck said. "He was only prosecuted, they only found this stuff because they were going through everything to stop him. And it's sick. It's really sick":

Barber: Marchers Should Denounce 'Homosexual Enslavement Lifestyles' At St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Earlier this month, organizers of New York's annual St. Patrick's Day parade announced that, for the first time, they would allow a gay group to march in the parade. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who is serving as grand marshal of the parade, said that he has "no trouble with the decision at all" and that is not sitting well with Mat Staver and Matt Barber, who used today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast to blast Dolan as "unchristian" and to call upon other parade participants to protest this "evil" decision.

Barber said that there was no reason for parade organizers to make this sort of change because doing so is "completely counterbiblical" and the parade has now put its stamp of approval upon mortal sin. He then blasted Cardinal Dolan for his "unchristian statement" in support of the change as Staver called upon Catholics to voice their outrage to Dolan and parade organizers in protest.

Barber completely agreed, suggesting that other parade participants should carry banners and signs during the parade protesting the participation of gay groups and use the parade as an opportunity to preach that "there is actually freedom from these homosexual enslavement lifestyles."

"This is an opportunity to use that which is intended for evil," Barber said, "and this is evil, we need to be very clear here, use that which is intended for evil for good."

"Why would you put on parade someone who is promoting harmful, destructive behavior such as this?" Staver asked, wondering if parade organizers would also allow adulterers or drunkards or swingers to march. "Why would you put on parade something that is immoral, such as same-sex activity?"
