Beware The Gay Antichrist! The Seven Most Appalling Moments In Values Voter Summit History

 
Every year since 2006, Republican leaders have joined some of the country’s most notorious anti-gay, anti-choice activists and fringe conspiracy theorists at the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit.
 
 
Don’t be surprised if summit speakers venture off into the deep-end of the right-wing fringe this week. Far from anomalies, intolerant rhetoric, self-serving claims of persecution and doomsday predictions are a Values Voter Summit tradition.
 
Here, we’ve collected seven of the worst moments from previous Values Voter Summits.
 
1. The Antichrist Will Be Gay
 
The Values Voter Summit is often an educational affair, and one thing we learned at the 2006 conference is that the Antichrist will be gay. Right-wing pastor Dwight McKissic told the VVS audience that year that the gay rights movement is a “Satanic” effort birthed “from the pit of Hell itself,” before suggesting that “the Antichrist himself may be homosexual.”
 
“The gay rights movement, I believe, was birthed and inspired by the Antichrist,” McKissic added, while conservative pastor and co-panelist Wellington Boone lamented that it is no longer socially acceptable to call people “faggots.”
 
 
2. Hillary Clinton Will Imprison Christians, ‘Shut Down’ Churches
 
Remember when Hillary Clinton destroyed the Constitution, closed churches and put all Christians in jail? No? Well, 2012 speaker Kamal Saleem predicted that by the end of her term as secretary of state, Clinton would “subjugate American people to be arrested and put to jail and their churches and synagogues shut down.”
 
Saleem has made a career as a phony ex-terrorist who converted to Christianity, and has concocted several other insane conspiracy theories.
 

Of course, the Values Voter Summit regularly features warnings that the U.S. has morphed into Nazi Germany and will establish concentration camps for Christians.
 
3. Mormonism Meltdown
 
On one rare occasion, even a Republican politician couldn’t ignore the rank bigotry that takes place at the Values Voter Summit.
 
In 2011, televangelist Robert Jeffress, who introduced then-presidential candidate Rick Perry at the summit, blasted Mitt Romney in a post-speech interview as a cult member and fake Christian, comments thatcame as no surprise since Jeffress had railed against the Mormon faith and Romney in previous speeches.
 
Romney, incidentally, was set to speak that year immediately prior to American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer, who is notorious for his incendiary comments about gays and lesbians, immigrants, African Americans, Native Americans, Muslims and, yes, Mormons. During his speech, Romney criticized Fischer’s “poisonous language,” prompting Fischer to lash back at Romney. Romney ally Bill Bennett also jumped in, criticizing Jeffress for promoting “bigotry” while Perry went back and forth between ignoring the controversy and eventually distancing himself from Jeffress.
 
While Romney may have spoken out against Fischer during the summit, Fischer had the last laugh as he succeeded in his campaign to oust a gay official from Romney’s presidential campaign.
 
That wasn’t the last time we would see infighting at the Values Voter Summit. Last year, Rep. Louie Gohmert accused Sen. John McCain of supporting Al Qaeda, to which McCain responded: “Sometimes comments like that are made out of malice, but if someone has no intelligence I don't feel it as being a malicious statement.”
 
4. Demand Abortions Be Performed In Public
 
Lila Rose, the anti-choice activist known for her campaigns against Planned Parenthood, had a modest proposal at the 2009 summit: “If I could insist, as long as they are legal in our nation, abortions will be done in the public square.”
 
Rose, who sees herself as the Malala Yousafzai of America, said that mandatory public abortions are necessary so we can “hear angels singing when we ponder the glory of conception.”
 
Many other Values Voter Summit speakers have also shared memorable messages for the women of America.
 

 
5. Perkins Mocks Gay Soldiers
 
At the 2010 summit, in the midst of the fight over the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins warned that if the ban on openly gay service members was lifted, then the U.S. military would become nothing but a parade-marching force.
 
Speaking on a panel with Bob Maginnis, FRC’s senior fellow for national security, Perkins said that militaries that allow openly gay members — which by that time included Israel and NATO allies such as Canada, the United Kingdom and Germany — are the “ones that participate in parades, they don't fight wars to keep the nation and the world free.”
 
 
6. A Bigger Crown In Heaven
 
Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean told the 2009 conference that while she may have lost the beauty competition, which she said was a result of her answer to a question about gay marriage, she knew “that the Lord has so much of a bigger crown in Heaven for me.”
 
In fact, she said, the “vicious” reaction she received following the pageant was one of worst incidents of persecution in American history.
 
Prejean later sued Miss USA for discrimination but settled the case for legal fees after a sex tape she had made materialized.
 

 
7. Obamacare 'Is The Worst Thing That Has Happened In This Nation Since Slavery'
 
Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Values Voter Summit speakers have been in a fierce competition to see who can come up with the most insane reaction to the law. Michele Bachmann pilloried the health law as “DeathCare,” Ken Cuccinelli blasted it as “the greatest erosion of liberty” in modern history and Rick Santorum linked it to the French Revolution.
 
 

After all this, it is no wonder that Santorum told the Values Voter Summit in 2012 that “we will never have the elite, smart people on our side.”

Ben Carson: Obama Turning America Into Cuba, A 'Socialist/Communist' Nation

In an interview on Ohio Christian University’s “Faith & Liberty” radio show posted last week, potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said that President Obama doesn’t “have the same worldview” as the typical American. Carson, who has previously implied that Obama is a Nazi and a communist, said that the president is bent on introducing “government control of everything” by “getting rid of God” in order to bring about communism.

You look through history, you look at Cuba, you look at Russia, you look at a lot of places that have a socialist/communist base, but previously they didn’t have that and they were a free society. What happened that’s common in every one of those societies? Two basic things. You get rid of God — and you see the attack on God in our country that is going on right now — that’s number one because you have to replace God with your dogma, you have to become the primary authority of everything. And the second thing you have to do is you have to gain control of your people, and the best way to do that is you take over health care. Everybody needs health care, you get control of that. Get rid of God, get control of health care and you’re well on your way to fundamentally changing society.

He also lashed out at the media for its supposed liberal bias, warning that the left-wing bias has become so egregious that it is “destroying” America…except for Fox News, of course, which he said has saved America from Obama’s socialist schemes.

Carson hailed Fox News, where he works as a contributor, for stopping Obama from turning America into Cuba: “If there were no Fox News and if there was no conservative radio, we would already be Cuba. I know [Obama] realizes that they’re impeding his agenda of fundamentally transforming this nation into something else, the sad thing is that a lot of the people that agree with him and support him have no idea what they’re wishing for.”

He went on to say that liberals in the media seek to “demonize” and “destroy” their opponents, something Fox News would never do.

While he praised Fox News and conservative talk radio, Carson said the media “failed our society” by “taking sides” in political debates.

He recounted a story where he apparently out-argued and shamed “two senior editors of a major national newspaper” until they admitted that they were biased in favor of Obama and enabling him to “ignore laws” and “ignore the Constitution” and therefore “contributing to the destruction of our society.”

Ben Carson: Evolution Is An Absurd Myth, 'Give Me A Break'

In a “Faith & Liberty” interview posted last week, potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson discussed his rejection of the theory of evolution, arguing that the science of evolution is a sign of humankind’s arrogance and belief “that they are so smart that if they can’t explain how God did something, then it didn’t happen, which of course means that they’re God. You don’t need a God if you consider yourself capable of explaining everything.”

He claimed that “no one has the knowledge” of the age of the earth “based on the Bible,” adding that “carbon dating and all of these things really don’t mean anything to a God who has the ability to create anything at any point in time.”

Carson pointed to the “complexity of the human brain” as proof that evolution is a myth: “Somebody says that came from a slime pit full of promiscuous biochemicals? I don’t think so.”

He said evolution is unable to explain the development of an eyeball: “Give me a break. According to their scheme, it had to occur over night, it had to be there. I instead say, if you have an intelligent creator, what he does is give his creatures the ability to adapt to the environment so he doesn’t have to start over every fifty years creating all over again.”

Carson also said he hopes God will intervene to expose the truth about Obamacare.

Arguing that Obamacare will lead people to lose their health coverage — even though the opposite is happening — Carson said he has “prayed to God that he will expose even to people of low information what is going on. Sometimes things have to be so blatant, it’s like hitting them over the head with a two-by-four, before people wake up.”

Carson ended the interview by warning that Christians in America are facing widespread persecution and religious hostility.

“They’ve been bludgeoned into silence,” he said.

Ben Carson Joins Far-Right Outlet WorldNetDaily

It appears that in 2016, there will be two GOP presidential candidates who have worked as columnists for WorldNetDaily: Rick Santorum and, as announced today, Ben Carson.

Back in July, Carson sat down with WND editor Joseph Farah to discuss why he believes that drug reform laws are meant to distract from Benghazi and that President Obama is a Leninist.

As we have noted on previous occasions, WND is a birther, racist outlet which has suggested that Obama is a secretly gayMuslimcommunistdemon-possessed dictator who is setting up concentration camps and cattle cars for his planned holocaust.

WND, nonetheless, remains influential in right-wing circles and has access to high-ranking Republican politicians. Another likely Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Rand Paul, even cited the website’s “reporting” to substantiate one of his Benghazi conspiracy theories, while admitting: “I don’t have any proof.”

In fact, “I don’t have any proof” is a great way to describe WND’s style of journalism.

Ben Carson: To Know Obama, Read 'Mein Kampf'

In an interview with Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth today, Ben Carson said that if people want to know the truth about President Obama, they should simply “read ‘Mein Kampf’ and read the works of Vladimir Lenin.” “Mein Kampf,” of course, was written by Adolf Hitler and is filled with anti-Communist diatribes.

Carson, a likely Republican presidential candidate who is obsessed with the conspiracy-theory-laden book “The Naked Communist,” strongly hinted in the interview that he believes Obama is a communist.

Carson has previously claimed that Obama wants to turn America into Nazi Germany and a Gestapo-like state, warning that “we live in a Gestapo age.”

He also told Hayworth, a former Arizona Republican congressman, that Obama and other Democrats are using the uproar in Ferguson, Missouri, to “manipulate” people and “fan the flames of division.”

Carson said the fatal shooting of Michael Brown “has less to do with racism and a lot more to do with some deep cultural issues that are producing individuals who are likely to end up in trouble with the law, who are likely to end up in conflict with each other which will lead to violence and death.”

Robison: Candidates Who Support Abortion Rights Or Gay Marriage Are Incapable Of Hearing God And Leading America​

On his TV show "Life Today" this morning, James Robison interviewed Ben Carson about his current book and what Robison sees as America's rapid decline.

During the course of the conversation, after Carson cited a fake quote from Thomas Jefferson declaring that "when governments fear the people, there is liberty; when the people fear the government, there is tyranny," Robison warned that the religious leaders must begin preaching on political issues from their pulpits because "there are principalities and powers in the realm of darkness, deception and destruction" that are seeking to destroy this nation.

As such, Christians must know who to vote for, Robison said, because candidate who believe in abortion rights or marriage equality are "incapable of hearing the wisdom that comes from above and being directed by divine providence," which makes them likewise incapable "of leading a nation out of the depravity and the death and the defeat that we're experiencing":

Ben Carson: US Turning Communist, Obama Refuses To Attack ISIS

According to potential Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, not only is the U.S. turning into Nazi Germany but the country is also taking its cues from communists.

In an interview yesterday with Iowa-based broadcaster Steve Deace, Carson said the powers of the executive branch are growing “because if somebody refuses to cooperate, you just pull the noose on them. That’s basically the way a lot of communist countries work, that’s been happening to us over the last several years and most of us are completely unaware of it.”

“The best way to curb that is you get somebody in office who actually understands the separation of powers and is not trying to become a dictator,” he said.

In a Wednesday interview with Andy Parks of the Washington Times, Carson said that ISIS could be easily defeated in no time but President Obama refuses to do it.

“I’ve had the privilege of meeting so many of our top military people, these are smart people and they are terrific when it comes to strategy. They’ve offered these strategies to the administration, they just have not been accepted. We could get rid of those people in no time at all,” Carson said. “It’s having the will to do it. It’s just like with the border, we could seal the border if we have they will to don’t it. We have the ability to do it, we just don’t have the will.”

  • Ben Carson says that he is "an instrument that’s being used to help restore this country."
  • Peter Sprigg is very mad that judges on the 7th Circuit did not seem to buy the right-wing arguments against marriage equality.
  • Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver is also mad and blames it all on Alfred Kinsey.
  • Gary Cass says it is hypocritical for America to be horrified by ISIS: "In Iraq there are foreign invaders brutalizing and beheading children. In America we brutalize and behead our own children! Surgical abortion is nothing less horrific or less brutal than what we see happening to the children in Iraq, only WE ARE DOING IT TO OUR OWN CHILDREN!"
  • Chris McDaniel made yet another appearance on Bryan Fischer's radio show today.
  • Finally, speaking of Fischer, he delivered another insightful science lesson today when he explained that Jesus is the magic force that holds the entire universe together:

Ben Carson: Michael Brown Died Because He Lacked A Father Figure, Political Correctness

Ben Carson seems to be convinced that “political correctness” is to blame for Michael Brown’s death, and made the case yesterday on Washington Times Radio that Brown died due to the “hypersensitive” climate of American politics.

He told host Andy Parks that political correctness is distracting people from addressing “real problems” like teen pregnancy and “all of those kids who are born into poverty and will live in poverty and in many cases will end up without a father figure in their life and don’t know how to respond to authority and end up being killed like Michael Brown.”

Carson, who has built a political career by regularly arguing that he is losing his right to free speech because people criticize his political views and that he is facing Nazi-style persecution, said “hypersensitive” people who manufacture claims about how their rights are under attack are ruining America.

Carson later said the “agitators” and “criminals” in Ferguson need to be punished and the real lesson is that people should “teach your children to respect authority.”

Ironically, a few months ago Carson praised the “outstanding people” who flocked to the Bundy ranch in Nevada to assist in the lawless standoff with law enforcement, saying that it is high time for Americans to “stand up against the government” and stave off looming martial law.

Ben Carson And Steve Malzberg Muse On How Ferguson Protestors Are Like Hamas

Conservative activist and potential 2016 presidential candidate Ben Carson joined Steve Malzberg on his Newsmax program yesterday to discuss the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, as well as Islamic extremism in the Middle East. Malzberg, amazingly, was able to tie the two together, accusing the Obama administration of sympathizing with both the “grievances” of groups like Hamas and of the Ferguson protestors, creating “a bizarre world of sorts.”

Doctor, do you see a world now through a media and maybe even through the White House and Justice Department and the State Department where Hamas is kind of equal to Israel, they have their own grievances, you put a suit and tie on the Hamas spokesmen and you believe what they say, and Israel has to be proportional to their response; and now the cops, Rachel Maddow says the cops are rioting and Obama says they’re too militarized, as many people do, and we have got to hear the grievances and there’s a war on black men, we hear from some people. Do you see how these two kind of go together in a bizarre world of sorts?

“It’s very bizarre, and I see a very politically correct administration, and political correctness is in the process of destroying this nation,” Carson responded.

Ben Carson: LGBT-Affirming Pastors Put Their Finger In The Eye Of God

Conservative activist and potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson joined James Dobson on Family Talk Radio yesterday, where the two got to talking about LGBT-affirming pastors.

Dobson, joining a long line of anti-LGBT activists who don’t quite understand what bisexuality is, asked what pastors who endorse marriage equality are going to do about bisexual people, who he said “have sex with males and females at the same time.”

“That’s called orgies, that’s what it used to be called” he said.

Carson, for his part, despaired that pastors who approve of same-sex marriage have given a “finger-in-your-eye to God.”

Carson: I find it difficult sometimes to understand why ministers are willing to abandon the scripture to go along and get along. I just find that very puzzling.

Dobson: I do too, especially on the issue of gay marriage. There are many, many formerly conservative big-time ministers — I mean those who have big churches and great influence — who have abandoned that.

Carson: They’ve been beaten into submission.

Dobson: If they’re right to do this today, were they wrong yesterday?

Carson: The bigger issue is, of course, if you can say the Bible is wrong on that, then, you know, why isn’t it wrong on everything, or anything that you don’t want it to say?

Dobson: I have been on a crusade to say to many ministers, and I’ll say it again now, that if men can marry and if the things that are said about same-sex relationships and marriage and the Bible are misunderstandings, what do you do with the rest of LGBT? What do you do with bisexuality? If one of those is right and proper and holy, what about those who have sex with males and females at the same time? That’s called orgies, that’s what it used to be called, or just sleeping around with everybody and it doesn’t matter. How can a Christian minister who reads the Bible condone that?

Carson: Well, you know, my emphasis is that marriage is an institution established by God himself. And when you look in the New Testament, the marriage relationship is used to help us understand His relationship with His people. So when you start distorting that, you’re really going pretty deep into the finger-in-your-eye to God. That’s why I have a hard time understanding why ministers are willing to do that.

Ben Carson Thinks Obama Is Engaging In A Leninist Plot To Intentionally Destroy The Economy

Readying for a potential presidential bid, Ben Carson has been speaking out about how everything from health care reform to gay marriage is part of a long-term communist plot to bring down America, inspired by Vladimir Lenin and Saul Alinsky and orchestrated by none other than President Obama.

In the second part of Carson’s interview with WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah last week, which he began by tying together pot use, Benghazi and the Pharrell song “Happy,” the conservative activist said “people need to wake up” about the subversive communist plot.

He suggested that communists in government, following the teachings of Lenin, have deliberately added on debts in order to destroy the U.S. economy. “Of course they don’t talk about it, I’ll tell you who does talk about it: Vladimir Lenin. One of the ways to destroy the United States? Unsustainable debt. People, you got to wake up, you got to wake up.” This, of course, would make George W. Bush the biggest Leninist of all.

However, Carson insisted that he was merely just asking the question: “I don’t know if it is intentional or not, but whether it is intentional or not doesn’t matter, we’ll still be destroyed.”

Ben Carson Thinks Politicians Are Promoting Pot Use To Make People Dumb, Distract From Benghazi

Ben Carson sat down yesterday with WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah to promote his new book “One Nation” and his potential presidential bid. It was quite amusing to watch Carson and Farah lament on WorldNetDaily — which regularly runs articles about how Democrats are literally demonic — that political activists too often “demonize” their opponents.

Carson told Farah that he worried politicians like President Obama and Eric Holder are surreptitiously encouraging marijuana use in order to create a dumb citizenry. That way, doped-up Americans will be distracted by controversies like the name of the Washington Redskins instead of focusing on stories about Benghazi and Fast and Furious.

“When we do things like have our Attorney General and our President say, ‘marijuana is not that bad, I used it and look how I turned out,’ well that’s the problem.”

Instead of smoking pot and listening to songs like “Happy” all day, Carson said Americans should focus on the real issues of the day…like Benghazi.

He said that Americans should instead focus on “the real enemy”: the communist in the White House who wants to “fundamentally change America.”

Ben Carson Says That Legal Abortion Is Human Sacrifice

While appearing on DoveTV recently, Ben Carson said that America has no right to assert that ancient civilizations were "heathen" for practicing human sacrifice since this nation is doing the same thing by allowing abortion to remain legal.

Carson, who has no problem endorsing candidates who support abortion rights in order to win votes, was responding to a comment by host Perry Atkinson who said that if America could just end abortion then "all of the other things that God would be interested in helping us with would fall into alignment."

"It's interesting," Carson said, "that we sit around and call other ancient civilizations 'heathen' because of human sacrifice, but aren't we actually guilty of the same thing?"

Ben Carson Explains How Gay Marriage Is A Marxist Plot To Impose The 'New World Order'

In his keynote speech at the National Organization for Marriage’s March for Marriage gala last week, Dr. Ben Carson explained how Marxists are using LGBT rights to destroy American unity and impose the "New World Order."

Carson said he knows about this plot from reading right-wing conspiracy theorist W. Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.”

Earlier in the speech, Carson told the audience that gay-rights opponents are the real victims of “injustice” because they just want to be “left alone.”

“When we talk about liberty and justice for all, doesn’t that mean that people can be left alone, that no-one else gets to change definitions on them and change life for them?” he asked.

“They have no right to say to me that I must change the way I think in order to accommodate what they believe,” he said. “That’s where the injustice comes from, and we have to understand that.”
