Josh Duggar Says He Helped Overturn Non-Discrimination Law To Show Love To LGBT Community

Former top Southern Baptist official Richard Land was the guest host of the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” yesterday, where the rabidly anti-gay pastor spoke to a self-proclaimed ex-gay caller about his time leading a church in New Orleans which had people “who had been delivered out of both homosexual and lesbian lifestyles.”

“It’s such a sad, lonely lifestyle,” Land said of homosexuality. “It just seemed to me that one of the cruelest jokes the devil has ever played is to have that lifestyle described as ‘gay.’”

Earlier in the program, Land spoke with Josh Duggar of the Family Research Council and TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” about their work to successfully overturn an LGBT non-discrimination ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas, which they agreed was a sign of their love for the LGBT community.

Josh Duggar To Lead Rally Against Marriage Equality in Arkansas

Tomorrow, the Family Research Council and its Arkansas affiliate will join with Rick Scarborough’s Vision America to hold an anti-marriage-equality rally in Little Rock.

Among the speakers at the rally — which follows the state supreme court’s decision to take up a marriage case — will be Arkansas native Josh Duggar, the TLC reality show star and the executive director of FRC’s political arm.

• Mr. Joshua Duggar – Executive Director of FRC Action
• Mr. Jerry Cox – Founder and President of Family Council
• Senator Bart Hester – Arkansas State Senate
• Representative Bob Ballinger – Arkansas House of Representatives
• Pastor Happy Caldwell – Founder and President of Victory Television Network
• Pastor Derick Easter – New St. Hurricane Missionary Baptist Church

The Arkansas Family Council urges members to turn out in Little Rock:

Are you ready to make your voice heard to the Arkansas Supreme Court about the sanctity of marriage?

Are you tired of judges running roughshod over the will of Arkansas’ voters?

If you are, then I want to invite you to an important rally on the Capitol Steps in Little Rock one week from today.

On Wednesday, November 19, at 11:00 AM Arkansans will rally in support of traditional marriage. This is an opportunity for everyone—especially ministers—to make their voices heard in saying marriage in Arkansas should remain the union of one man and one woman.

FRC's Craig James: Religious Right Should Be More Like The LGBT Rights Movement

On “Washington Watch” last week, the Family Research Council's Craig James and Josh Duggar spoke about a press conference that anti-choice groups, including FRC, organized in Arkansas to denounce Sen. Mark Pryor.

James said that Religious Right activists should take cues from LGBT equality supporters in getting organized: “I think what we are finding here, Josh, is that there’s a small percent of folks who are really organized and they are absolutely diligent in their task to silence us or to win their way. It’s like in the LGBT community, it’s out recently that the number of proclaimed gays in this country is like 3.3 percent, but it feels like 30 percent, so getting organized and rallying and calling and writing is absolutely critical to helping all of us succeed in this fight.”

For his part, Duggar called on churches across America to mobilize around a common platform focused on banning abortion and same-sex marriage, along with cutting taxes.

Cuccinelli Surrogate Jim Bob Duggar Stands By His Comparison Of US To Nazi Germany

While campaigning for Virginia Republicans Ken Cuccinelli and E.W. Jackson this week, reality TV star Jim Bob Duggar reaffirmed his comparison of the United States to Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

Over the weekend, Duggar told the Values Voter Summit — an event hosted by the Family Research Council Action, where is son Josh serves as executive director — that Nazi concentration camps are “where we are at in our nation.”

Campaigning for the GOP ticket in Virginia, Duggar attempted to “clarify” his remarks by affirming his comparison of the current state of the US to the Holocaust:

"It is shocking that Cuccinelli would accept the support of a man who last week publicly compared the United States to Nazi Germany and the Holocaust," said McAuliffe's campaign spokesman Josh Schwerin.

"Ken Cuccinelli needs to immediately ask his surrogate to leave Virginia," Schwerin continued. "Mr. Duggar's divisive, hurtful, and extreme rhetoric has no place in this campaign for Governor."

Asked about his earlier decision to employ the holocaust metaphor Duggar did not back down.

"Let me clarify," he said.

"We have since 1973 (when Roe v. Wade was decided) had 55 million abortions, so what we have going on is a baby holocaust," Duggar said.

Cuccinelli joined the Duggar clan for one of the family’s campaign stop, which was sponsored by the FRC.

When Jackson met up with the Duggar’s, the Republican nominee for Lt. Governor likened himself and Cuccinelli to Patrick Henry during the American Revolution:

It also featured a fiery speech from Jackson, who said voters face a choice that's as stark as what Americans patriots faced in 1775.

He said Lord Dunmore, the last royal governor of Virginia, at the time "put out an arrest warrant out on our House of Burgesses."

This, Jackson said, prompted Patrick Henry to mount an armed resistance to the British crown.

"I don't think Mark (Obenshain), Ken (Cuccinelli) or I are in any danger of being arrested or being hanged," he said, "but I do think the choice is as stark."

Jim Bob Duggar Compares US To Nazi Germany During The Holocaust

Reality TV star Jim Bob Duggar spent most of his speech at the Values Voter Summit imploring attendees to run for office, just like he did, in order to advance social conservative causes like an “army.”

Duggar ended the address by retelling a story about a time when Mike Huckabee and his daughter visited a concentration camp, which he used to compare the current state of the US to Nazi Germany.

“As they were walking out of that concentration camp, he said little Sarah looked up at him and she said, ‘Daddy why didn’t somebody do something?’ You know what, that’s where we are at in our nation,” Duggar said. “Do we want our children, when we’re going to tell them about how great America was, they’re going to look at you and say, ‘Why didn’t somebody do something?’”

Watch:

Duggar’s son Josh is the executive director of Family Research Council Action, which will be sponsoring a Duggar family tour of Virginia to campaign on behalf of Ken Cuccinelli and E.W. Jackson, and one of the summit’s emcees.

Apparently, Criticizing E.W. Jackson Is 'Attacking The Right to Free Speech'

While E.W. Jackson, the Virginia GOP nominee for lt. governor, is fine with leveling virulent attacks against Democrats and gays and lesbians, Jackson plays the victim the minute anyone criticizes him or simply quotes his derogatory statements verbatim.

On an interview with WLEE, he recently doubled down on his long held belief that the Democratic Party is an “anti-God” party. After even members of his own party distanced themselves from his remarks, the Republican leader is again crying persecution.

Jackson addressed the negative reaction to his statements while speaking with the Family Research Council’s Quena Gonzales and Josh Duggar , who told Jackson that the media is “attacking the right to free speech.”

“This is something that they do incessantly, unfortunately, because they have an agenda and that agenda means that spokespersons like me have to be destroyed, marginalized, basically gotten rid of in order for them to further that agenda,” Jackson replied. He stood by his remarks as “truthful,” but argued that they were not directed at Democrats as individuals but about the party in general.

Duggar: How has the media portrayed its liberal bias, twisting your words and attacking the right of free speech?

Jackson: This is something that they do incessantly, unfortunately, because they have an agenda and that agenda means that spokespersons like me have to be destroyed, marginalized, basically gotten rid of in order for them to further that agenda; so when you say something that’s truthful, they twist that and turn that into something mean or nasty or like it’s an attack. I never attacked Democrats and said if you’re a Democrat you’re not a Christian.



Gonzales: Can you quickly tell us what it is you actually said and how that was misconstrued?

Jackson: What I’ve actually said is, and look I’m hoping this will lead to reform in the Democratic Party, what I’ve said is that the Democratic Party based on their behavior at the convention, based upon their platform, supporting same-sex marriage, based on their radically, avidly pro-abortion platform, has become a party that is really antithetical to things that Bible-believing Christians hold dear.

Of course, last year Jackson similarly called the Democrats an “anti-God” party that is “no longer a party that any Christian can be associated with.”

“What people do is up to them but we can’t associate ourselves with something that seems to have clearly committed itself to evil and to that which is against the word of God,” he said at the time.

As I watched the Democrat Party [sic] continue to go down this road of moral relativism, cultural relativism, I think when it declared same-sex marriage to be an official part of its party platform I realized that they had really crossed the Rubicon, it was a step too far, it was clear they were going in an anti-God, anti-Christian, anti-family, anti-life, anti-Israel direction and that this was no longer a party that any Christian could be associated with.



What people do is up to them but we can’t associate ourselves with something that seems to have clearly committed itself to evil and to that which is against the word of God. So how people interpret what they do, if they can’t vote for a Democrat, they can’t vote for this nominee, what they do from there is up to them.

Right Wing Leftovers - 6/18/13

  • For some reason, Josh Duggar has been named Executive Director of FRC Action.
  • We should probably be prepared to hear a lot from Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory as he seems to be the Right's newest hero.
  • It is becoming increasingly obvious that "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt literlly has no idea what he is talking about most of the time.
  • Glenn Beck had been teasing that Sen. Mike Lee was going to reveal that Chief Justice John Roberts had been "intimidated" into changing his vote on health care reform but the scoop was a total bust.
  • Speaking of Beck, good luck trying to follow this explanation of how the nation needs to be governed by God's law even if it is not turned into legislation but the social contract can never violate God's law ... or something:
