Noson Leiter: 'Barbaric' Gays Promote 'Homo-Terror' and 'Child Molestation' But God Will 'Vanquish' Them

Noson Leiter of Torah Jews for Decency and one of the Religious Right’s favorite rabbis appeared yesterday alongside Rick Scarborough for a Tea Party Unity conference call.

Leiter, who blamed Hurricane Sandy on New York’s marriage equality law, said that the “end game” of the gay rights movement is “child molestation.”

“They are after our kids,” Leiter said, “They are after the bibles and guns that Americans cling to but they are also after us and after our kids.”

He warned that while gay rights advocates “will not rest until all of their opposition is totally eliminated,” ultimately they will lose because “the Lord will vanquish evil.”

The end game is that we are the target. It’s not that they are stepping on all of our rights and basically advancing the cause of child molestation in order to get to some other goal, that is part of their goal. The nature of radical pederasty basically involves the victimization of kids. The acceptance of NAMBLA, the North American Man Boy Love Association, that organization which has been traditionally accepted by mainstream homosexual activists in their marches historically, that reflects more than just the radical fringe, that reflects the unstated agenda, ultimately that’s what these people are after: they are after our kids. They are after the bibles and guns that Americans cling to but they are also after us and after our kids. If we don’t understand that we understand nothing; when we understand that and we know what the enemy is after then we can properly formulate a strategy of exposing it and addressing it. This is not going to stop, there is an existential struggle between not homosexuals but the homosexual activists who will not rest until all of their opposition is totally eliminated, co-opted and converted to their side. And that will not happen; we are on the winning side. The Lord will vanquish evil and hopefully it will be speedily in our days.

Leiter pointed to the Dignity for All Students Act, an anti-bullying bill in New York, as proof that “much of the homosexual agenda is predicated on predatory practices targeting youth” and pushing the “spiritual and emotional child molestation” of children.

He mentioned that he is working with ex-gay activist Greg Quinlan to stop legislation in New Jersey limiting the practice of ex-gay therapy on youth, which he asserted would have children be “molested by the state.”

Leiter went on to list a whole litany of claims that reveal the “terrorist and barbaric tactics” of gay rights supporters: arguing the children of same-sex parents are at risk for “molestation and trafficking” and live in “cruel” households, military service members are deterred from “complaining about homosexual advances” in the ranks and that conservatives are now the targets of “homo-terror.”

Much of the homosexual agenda is predicated on predatory practices targeting youth. I would suggest people look at the information on the Dignity for All Students Act in New York state, the homosexual indoctrination in schools is a major issues that could be attacked on that basis. It’s like spiritual and emotional child molestation, that’s a term people may want to use. There are bills in California and proposed in New Jersey and New York seeking to ban reparative therapy, as Greg Quinlan referred to it as the Jerry Sandusky bill that we just testified against this week in New Jersey. That basically takes away the opportunity of victims of child molestation to get the help they need, the reparative therapy they need to repel unwanted sexual feelings of same-gender attraction. These kids are to be condemned to a lifetime of thinking that they are homosexual when they really are not because the left does not want them to have that autonomy, that freedom of choice to opt for the therapies that can help them. So basically they are allowing children to be molested yet again; after they’ve been molested once they’re going to be molested by the state if this type of legation stands. That’s another example of how we can attack the barbarism in the radical homosexualist movement.

Transgender legislation, facilitating child molestation via increased access to victims like New York state’s ‘bathroom bill’; supporting homosexualist terrorism under the guise of fighting hate like the SPLC targeting the FRC, facilitating that homo-terror attack on the FRC a while ago; targeting businesses like Chick-fil-A for their expression of biblical faith; homosexual adoption, which victimizes the most defenseless by exposing them to the hazards of molestation and trafficking and other aspects of the homosexual upbringing including the cruel deprivation of the father and mother-led family; homosexuals in the US military, infringing on religious liberties of servicemen and chaplains and fostering an environment more hostile to complaining about homosexual advances; the branding of non-politically correct groups of Jews and Christians as dangerous extremists in a recent US Army presentation; the attack in Washington state on a florist for not delivering flowers to a so-called homosexual wedding. These are all examples of terrorist and barbaric tactics and strategies and policies of the homosexualist movement.

Rep. Tom Price Fears Negative Health and Economic Impacts of Gay Rights Bills

Georgia congressman and potential Senate candidate Tom Price appeared today on a conference call with Tea Party Unity, the group founded by far-right pastor Rick Scarborough, where he agreed with a caller who suggested that any bill involving social issues should require a study of the “fiscal impact” the legislation would have.

The caller was none other than Rabbi Noson Leiter, who blamed Hurricane Sandy on New York’s marriage equality law. Leiter warned about the “tremendous medical health impact and economic impact” of the “homosexual agenda” and asked Price whether Congress will consider studying the “fiscal impact” that “promoting such a lifestyle will result in.”

Price hailed Leiter and said he was “absolutely right,” adding that “the consequences of activity that has been seen as outside the norm are real and must be explored completely and in their entirety prior to moving forward with any social legislation that would alter things.”

He went on to say he was dismayed by “people who wake up one morning and think that they’ve got a grand new way of doing something” that ends up becoming “a huge cost-driver to state pensions” and have significant health costs.

Leiter: Congressman, is it feasible to consider that any legislation on the various moral issues that’s being considered, whether it be pertaining to the homosexual agenda, abortion or pornography, taking into account the fiscal impact of that legislation. In other words, when they want to let’s say promote some homosexual agenda item, that they should take into account the tremendous medical health impact and economic impact that promoting such a lifestyle will result in.

Price: Yes, thank you rabbi and you’re absolutely right. The consequences of activity that has been seen as outside the norm are real and must be explored completely and in their entirety prior to moving forward with any social legislation that would alter things. I’m always struck by people who wake up one morning and think that they’ve got a grand new way of doing something when as you all know that the tried and true traditions in history that made us great are preserved and have survived because they are effective. I hear you, medical health and costs; you talk about a huge cost-driver to state pensions and other things, many of these areas would significantly alter state balance sheets.

Religious Right Rabbi Blames Hurricane Sandy on Gays, Marriage Equality

This post has been updated, 11/5/2012

Rabbi Noson Leiter of Torah Jews for Decency is blaming Hurricane Sandy on gays and lesbians, calling it “divine justice” for New York’s new marriage equality law. Torah Jews for Decency campaigned against marriage equality in New York and New Jerseyworked with Liberty Counsel and New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms in an unsuccessful lawsuit to overturn New York’s marriage law, and has joined with various other Religious Right groups on anti-gay campaigns.

Yesterday, Leiter appeared on Crosstalk, the flagship program of Vic Eliason’s Voice of Christian Youth America, alongside Neil DiCarlo, a candidate for New York State Senate, to discuss New York’s legalization of same-sex marriage.

Leiter asserted that the “the Great Flood in the time of Noah was triggered by the recognition of same-gender marriages,” adding that there are similar “messages in this particular storm for us.” “The Lord will not bring another flood to destroy the entire world but He could punish particular areas with a flood, and if we look at the same-gender marriage recognition movement that’s occurring, that certainly is a message for us to learn,” he said. “We have to learn that the Lord does watch what we do and if we don’t shape up He will deliver divine justice.” Leiter also suggested that God flooded Lower Manhattan because it is “one of the national centers of homosexuality.”

Listen:

Later in the program, Leiter argued that the “LGBT radical homosexualist movement” threatens the survival of society and religious freedom and will even increase child abuse by giving molesters a “license to victimize” children and even “a certain degree of diplomatic immunity.”

Eliason: Rabbi Leiter, you have been passionately involved in the fight for biblical, moral values, why?

Leiter: I think that’s what the Lord wants us to do and if we do not we face an existential threat. There is an issue of the survival of morality being necessary for the survival of society, and that’s not just an issue that’s specific to marriage. In addition there’s an issue of religious liberty. The LGBT radical homosexualist movement is really the Avant-guard of Bible-haters of all different types, not just limited to the left. The advance towards homosexual rights and so-called marriage is not predicated on getting rights, and just thereby stepping on the rights of Bible believers. The purpose is to bash Bible-believers using their so-called rights as a pretext do so and that’s why it is so critical to oppose them because they’re not after something that they think is theirs, they’re after us.



Leiter: There are so many things that people could point out about the negatives aspects of the homosexual lifestyle that is being touted as being this wonderful idea that the media doesn’t talk about. We’re talking about victimization that goes on under the rubric of protecting people’s rights; they’re not interested in protecting people’s rights, they’re interested in giving people a license to victimize, particularly to victimize children, and we pick up the pieces on some of that. We know how hard this is hitting society. The crisis of child molestation is not independent of the intentional proliferation of unfettered homosexuality, they are definitely connected, it doesn’t meant that every molester is homosexual but many of them are, there is a disproportionate number that are homosexual males. They are in some cases being given a certain degree of diplomatic immunity because of their favored status centered around a common vice. That’s something that no state has a right to do.

UPDATE: Gov. Andrew Cuomo condemned the remarks in a statement today:

The comments made by Rabbi Noson Leiter that sought to link the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy to our state's embrace of marriage equality are as offensive as they are ignorant. This catastrophic storm claimed the lives of more than forty New Yorkers. This kind of hateful rhetoric has no place in our public discourse, and is particularly distasteful in times of tragedy. Our state is proud to offer equal rights to all our citizens, and we will never tolerate the use of a tragedy like Hurricane Sandy to promote a divisive and bigoted agenda. I call on Rabbi Leiter to apologize immediately for his hurtful comments.

Former Gov. George Pataki, a Republican, also took Leiter to task for his comments, while DiCarlo stood by the Rabbi:

Pataki called on fellow Republican Neil DiCarlo — who is running on the Conservative Party line for a state Senate seat from the Hudson Valley — to denounce the remarks of Rabbi Noson Leiter. DiCarlo opposes gay marriage, and the orthodox rabbi made the statements in support of his third-party candidacy.

“It’s simply incomprehensible that anyone could attribute the devastation and loss of life caused by Hurricane Sandy to divine retribution against the New York State legislature,” Pataki railed.

“It’s like blaming America’s belief in freedom for the attacks of Sept. 11,” Pataki added.

...

Pataki argued that because Leiter’s remarks were made in support of DiCarlo, the candidate “has a responsibility to repudiate them.”

Reached by phone, DiCarlo refused to take that step when asked repeatedly. He instead questioned Pataki’s motives.

“Ask Mr. Pataki why he endorsed my opponent, and why he is bringing this up two days before the election — and then I’ll answer your question,” DiCarlo said before hanging up.
