Bob Vander Plaats Links Terrorism, Gay Rights, Pot Legalization

Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Iowa-based Religious Right group The Family Leader, held a revival event yesterday that also happened to be a good marketing opportunity for his new book about the “urgent call for revival” in America.

Vander Plaats introduced the event — which also featured a Q & A with Chuck Norris and a performance by the Christian rock band the Newsboys — by showing a video of the “darkness” in America that he identified as calling for a spiritual revival. Featured in the video are images of terrorists attacks and mass shootings….along with images of same-sex weddings, the Boy Scouts’ admittance of gay members, Justice Anthony Kennedy, gambling and rallies on behalf of legalizing marijuana.

Vander Plaats mentioned at the end of the video that many of the national leaders he frequently speaks with share these concerns. He’ll have a chance to discuss them in more depth next month, when GOP leaders including Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry and Tim Scott come to Iowa for Vander Plaat’s annual Family Leadership Summit.

Farah: Anti-Gay Christians Will Face Persecution 'Unlike Anything Previously Experienced In America'

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah is not pleased with the recent Politico Magazine story on the increasing embrace of LGBT rights among evangelical Christians. In a column this weekend, Farah took issue with Politico’s description of conservative evangelicals’ “longstanding hostility toward gay people,” calling the description “hellishly bigoted.”

Gay-affirming churches are the “ones who are truly hostile and unloving to homosexuals,” he argues, and “are actually condemning them to death.”

Meanwhile, Farah contends, anti-gay Christians will soon face “persecution and martyrdom” that will be “unlike anything previously experience [sic] in America.”

I just read a Politico magazine piece that demonstrates why biblically minded Christians are becoming the targets of real bigotry and will, almost assuredly, soon be the victims of real persecution – unlike anything previously experience in America.

Titled “Evangelicals are changing their minds on gay marriage,” the article, written by a religion reporter for the Orange County Register, focuses on “The Reformation Project,” which is described as “a nationwide network of pro-gay evangelicals committed to ending their church’s longstanding hostility toward gay people.”

Let me first say that this is a hellishly bigoted comment by people who claim to be fighting bigotry.

Today, in the popular culture, it’s cool to be “gay” – a word that has been hijacked by a political movement that embraces sin.

It may be popular to embrace sin today, but those who do so in the name of Christ are the ones who are truly hostile and unloving to homosexuals. They are actually condemning them to death.

There is nothing loving about rationalizing sin as an alternative lifestyle.

I don’t doubt that there is a new movement within the church that takes this upside-down view of what Christianity is all about.

But notice the way those who disagree with the view – all those who follow biblical Christianity – are portrayed: They are “hostile to gay people.”

Where does that kind of thinking lead?

It leads only one place – bigotry and persecution.

This movement is not about rejecting bigotry as it claims. It is about creating a new form of bigotry – against those with sincerely held, biblically supported worldviews.

Larry Pratt And The Radical Right

Rolling Stone is out today with a lengthy profile of Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt, who, as we we frequently note, continues to hold a large amount of sway among Republicans in Congress despite his ongoing record of extremism.

Reporter Alexander Zaitchik digs into Pratt’s history of allying with anti-government militia groups and the anti-Semitic, racist Christian Identity movement. On the afternoon of the Oklahoma City bombing, Pratt implied that Timothy McVeigh had been doing God’s work against a government that was behaving “like a beast.”

Zaitchik also notes Pratt’s early forays into radical Religious Right activism, including calling for a quarantine of AIDS victims in the early days of the epidemic.

The whole profile is worth a read, but here are a few excerpts.

Along with his gun work, Pratt was involved during the Reagan years in a wide range of social and foreign policy issues. He was a member of the Council for National Policy, a think tank bringing together leading conservative figures to generate policy for the new administration. In 1980, he founded the Committee to Protect the Family Foundation, which raised money for anti-gay campaigns and assisted the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue with legal defenses. In 1986, during the depths of the AIDS crisis, Pratt bought ads around the country highlighting a D.C. law forbidding health insurance companies from denying coverage and raising rates for people who test positive for HIV. "We don't think AIDS should have civil rights," Pratt told the Los Angeles Times. "The law is a dangerous and outrageous precedent for other wacko legislators to follow. [Those who support it should be] held accountable for voting to support homosexual privileges."

The following year, Pratt called for the quarantine of people suffering from AIDS. "Our judges coddle criminals instead of caring for the victims of crime," he wrote in a Family Foundation fundraising letter. "They've chased God out of our schools, defended abortions…and now they are trying to infect us and kill us with strange and horrible diseases."

The bloodshed and the armed standoff [at Ruby Ridge] that followed catalyzed groups across the far right into action. This activity would soon produce a national militia movement for which Ruby Ridge functioned as a modern-day Alamo. The most important event in this development was a three-day meeting convened in October 1992 by Christian Identity leader Pete Peters. Christian Identity maintains that Aryans are the true Jews, that blacks are a pre-Adamic subhuman species, and that a race war is coming, after which whites will establish a "Christian government." These were the baseline ideas uniting the 150 far-right leaders who answered Peters' call to action at a YMCA hall in Estes Park, Colorado. Among those present was Larry Pratt. According to media reports, Pratt railed against the 14th Amendment and delivered one of his favorite lines: "The Second Amendment ain't about duck hunting."

According to Leonard Zeskind's report from the conference, published in a November 1995 Rolling Stone story, Pratt's fellow speakers consisted mostly of extremists with little mainstream profile or Washington connections, people like Aryan Nations leader Richard Butler and Texas Klansman Louis Beam. Pratt represented a link between these worlds and the rightward edge of the conservative establishment. Pratt's presence, wrote Zeskind, "signaled the transformation of the gun lobby. Organizations like GOA or even the National Rifle Association, which were devoted to the single issue of firearms, would become the leading edge of a far right, multi-issue assault on government institutions and democratic rights. The gun lobby would be at the center of a web of right-wing warriors."

In militia circles, the [Waco] siege confirmed the worst suspicions about the federal government. The links between the militia scene and the gun groups had deepened to the point where NRA fundraising letters echoed the language of extremist publications on the radical right. In one 1995 letter, NRA executive vice-president Wayne LaPierre described ATF officers as "jack-booted thugs" in "Nazi bucket helmets." But the NRA stopped short of supporting the Christian Identity lawyer Kirk Lyons, who was representing multiple victims of Waco. Pratt and the GOA had no such compunction and donated tens of thousands of dollars to Lyons's white supremacist organization CAUSE (short for the Aryan bastions of Canada, Australia, the United States, South Africa and Europe), "Not $50,000 — but a lot of money for us," Pratt told Rolling Stone in 1995.

For many, the gun scene's rhetoric of an "evil" and "fascist" government was immediately rendered in more sinister shades when Timothy McVeigh detonated a truck bomb under Oklahoma City's Alfred P. Murrah federal building on April 19, 1995, the second anniversary of the Waco siege. Former president George W. Bush spoke for many when he cancelled his NRA membership in the bombing's wake, citing LaPierre's incendiary rhetoric.

On the afternoon of the City bombing, Pratt was in Washington, D.C., demonstrating in front of FBI headquarters for its role in the Waco tragedy. Three days later, Pratt spoke before a gathering of 600 Christian Identity adherents and assorted radicals convened by Pete Peters at the Lodge of the Ozarks in Branson, Missouri. Pratt addressed the "Biblical Mandate to Arm" and seemed to justify McVeigh's act of terror, at the time the bloodiest in American history. According to an account by Michael Reynolds in Playboy, Pratt told the gathered, "The government behaves as a beast. It did in Waco, and we have somebody, whoever it might have been, whatever group it might have been, assuming they can't rely on the Lord to take vengeance."

Bradlee Dean Warns LGBT-Accepting Christians 'Open Doors Wide To The Gates Of Hell'

Religious Right activist Bradlee Dean is not too pleased with the increasing number of Christian denominations accepting LGBT people, claiming that the “apostate” churches are “counterfeits that open doors wide to the gates of hell” and are “spitting toward Heaven.”

Dean also links President Obama and his “criminal, ‘sodomite-advocating’ administration” to these “effeminate” Christians, likening the president to the “evil king” Jeroboam.

Last week we witnessed four denominations emboldened by this criminal, “sodomite-advocating” administration, joining the ranks of the apostate in America. Namely, the United Church of Christ (that claims 1 million members with about 5,200 congregations), the Presbyterian Church USA, the Moravians, who voted to ordain gay clergy, as we as the [Affirming] Pentecostal Church International (1 Timothy 4:1).

J. Bennett Guess, United Church of Christ’s first openly gay church executive, said that he was, “being a bold voice for progressive Christianity.” This would be like a criminal with a police badge trying to convince everyone that he is upright simply because of his man-ordained title.

This is spitting toward Heaven; and rest assured, they (along with whoever tolerates their crimes) will fall on their own backs.

Study the past!

When it comes to the issues at hand concerning our culture, we can clearly see that the majority of professed Christians are guilty of contributing to America’s state of moral anarchy (which they so boldly proclaim), proven by their support of antinomianism and the effeminate lifestyles they perpetuate.

It is revealing that these “churches” are “coming out” and exposing “what” and “who” real Christians have always known them to truly be: counterfeits that open doors wide to the gates of hell.

Side note: This is nothing new. It reminds me of an evil king named Jeroboam in 1 Kings 12:31, who “made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi.” These appointed priests were not ordained or appointed to stand in the place of or as God’s ministers, by God. Yet, there they were because of an evil king (a man) who usurped himself above God and His Law. (By the way, Barack Hussein Obama has appointed over 225 radical homosexuals, lesbians and transvestites to governmental positions.) What was their end? Destruction.

Religious Right Group Says 'We've Been Focused Too Much' On Gay Marriage And 'Not Focused Enough On Divorce'

The Ruth Institute's Jennifer Johnson wrote on the organization's blog yesterday that marriage equality advocates who criticize the Religious Right for singling out gay marriage while ignoring straight divorce "have a point."

"Have we been too focused on “same sex marriage” and not focused enough on divorce?" she asks. "I think so."

"Divorce is a big problem that Christians have not confronted adequately," she writes. "Thus, we have lost our witness and moral authority in regards to the institution of marriage. At least, that’s how it looks to me. "

The Ruth Institute — which until last year was affiliated with the National Organization for Marriage — doesn't always conform with the Religious Right's messaging, most recently taking issue with the movement's "whining" persecution rhetoric.​

That's not to say that the rest of the Religious Right doesn't care about divorce — the advent of no-fault divorce is frequently brought up as as a milestone in the slippery slope of the sexual revolution, and "covenant marriage" laws are popular among some activists. (Family Research Council president Tony Perkins sponsored the nation's first covenant marriage law when he was a Louisiana state legislator.)  But the movement as a whole knows that villainizing people who get divorced is going to be a less popular strategy than scapegoating the much smaller LGBT population.

Peter LaBarbera Says Men Are Gay Because They Just Want A 'Cheap Orgasm,' Obama 'Obsessed' With Homosexuality

James David Manning, the New York pastor who has warned of "Obama's homo-demons" and posted a "Stone Homos" sign on his church, hosted Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality on his radio show this week.

LaBarbera, who has devoted his entire life to combating gay rights, accused President Obama of being "obsessed" with homosexuality: "He's pandering to such a degree that it's like there is a spiritual force behind this, because who can explain the obsession that Barack Obama and his administration have for this issue."

LaBarbera also maintained that men are gay because they are too afraid of marrying a woman and having kids, as a "real man" would, and instead just want "the cheap orgasm."

"Homosexuality is robbing the potential husbands of women in the black community, and that's applicable to all women. I think homosexuality is one sense offers to men, if I can say this on your program, it offers the cheap orgasm. It's a lot harder to be a man, a real man and have a family, court a woman, marry a woman, have children, raise a family."

The anti-LGBT activist also said parents "have to start inoculating kids" against homosexuality and the "evil" of same-sex marriage. If someone tells them they are gay, LaBarbera advises, one should respond by asking: "Are you really? Because I don't think God wants homosexuality."

Robert Oscar Lopez: Gay Rights Movement Is 'Violent' Even Though 'Many Still Stereotype Gays As Delicate'

Anti-gay activist and author of gay erotica Robert Oscar Lopez has compiled a list of 300 incidents that he thinks illustrate the scourge of “homofascism.” He writes today in the American Thinker that “homofacism” is “less nationalistic than past fascisms, though more invasive and consuming because it polices interpersonal relationships and interior thoughts in a way that earlier police states did not.” He adds that the movement “it is violent, even though we tend not to think of the movement as violent because many still stereotype gays as delicate, and the violence is usually carried out through the seemingly legitimate auspices of the state.”

There is a mass movement aimed at stifling the autonomy of natural relationships – friendships, familial love, romantic love, human reverence for the divine – and subverting such relationships to the punitive power of an intrusive state. It is as sweeping and menacing as past isms, including fascism, to which it reveals a number of striking resemblances.

It is difficult to comprehend, partly because it operates so often with emotional subterfuge, and partly because it is unprecedented. It is less nationalistic than past fascisms, though more invasive and consuming because it polices interpersonal relationships and interior thoughts in a way that earlier police states did not. I have come to realize, though, that it is violent, even though we tend not to think of the movement as violent because many still stereotype gays as delicate, and the violence is usually carried out through the seemingly legitimate auspices of the state.

This strange fascism has grown under the guise of advocating for a marginalized and even obscure population – homosexuals and bisexuals – whose interests are in no way served by this movement, and who are themselves some of the people most vulnerable to repression by it. The stakes are huge, the urgency serious. We have to call it something, and its name should evoke the dramatic emergency it is presenting to the globe. So let’s just call it “homofascism” for simplicity’s sake.

The thought crosses my mind quite often: could I have made a difference if I’d come forward and spoken out in 2004? In 2000? In 1994? Homofascism feeds on silence. The less you confront it, the more it hunts you down and strikes at you. It is a strange beast. Perhaps if conservatives had stopped being so afraid of offending people and taken this threat seriously twenty years ago, many of the victims catalogued in our 300 list would not have been prey for the search-and-destroy missions of the gay lobby.

But regrets do little. We need to move forward. My allies’ purpose in archiving the history of homofascism is to provide a resource, to make sure that people on our side know how high the stakes are, and how false the veneers of the other side are. We are facing a vicious, lethal enemy, and we have to fight back accordingly. Ever forward.

Tony Perkins Claims 'Liberal Jewish Folk' Are Undermining Israel By Supporting Marriage Equality

In a June address to the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council lamented the support for same-sex marriage and abortion rights among “liberal Jewish folk.”

Perkins cited the rise of gay rights as a sign that American society is abandoning the Bible, warning that the U.S. may next disregard biblical directives to support Israel.

He also pointed to the Presbyterian Church (USA)’s recent decision to allow pastors to officiate same-sex weddings and to divest from three American corporations that are involved in West Bank settlements.

AFA: People Who Couldn't Pray Away The Gay Weren't Trying Hard Enough

Ed Vitagliano of the American Family Association writes in this month’s edition of the AFA Journal that while he knows many people have “prayed endlessly for God to remove their same-sex attractions — to no avail,” that is because they simply haven’t called upon the power of God “to gain mastery over [their] impulses.”

Vitagliano cites “the reality of ‘ex-gay’ people” as proof that “there are clearly many who have left the lifestyle.”

He notes that while ex-gays have “reoriented their affections to the opposite sex,” nonetheless “temptation remains.”

The Bible makes clear that homosexual acts are sinful. Yet what about a same sex orientation apart from sexual activity? Is it also sinful?

The answer appears to be yes, just as a desire to fornicate is a sin. In Romans 1:26-27, Paul speaks of the homosexual’s “degrading passions” or desires themselves. He also mentions that they “burned in their desire toward one another” and then committed “indecent acts.”



Perhaps the person born blind will cry out to the Lord for a miracle, and sometimes God answers and heals. But if we are honest, most of the time God does not seem inclined – whatever the reason – to perform that miracle.

Likewise, countless people who self-identify as homosexual claim to have prayed endlessly for God to remove their same sex attractions – to no avail.

This is not the whole story, of course. Despite the media’s refusal to consider the reality of “ex-gay” people, there are clearly many who have left the lifestyle. While temptation remains, they have – by God’s grace – reoriented their affections to the opposite sex.



On the other hand, like the blind or paralyzed person who cries out to God for physical healing but does not receive it, Christians who still struggle with same sex attraction may find themselves similarly frustrated.

For some reason, God often responds to prayer requests as He did with Paul: “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). The battle goes on. The Christian must fight against his fallen nature as the Israelites fought against the continual encroachments of the Philistines.

What, then, do we say to the gay man and the lesbian? What are they to do with their brokenness? First, if they remain defiant in it, they will eternally perish. Yet this is no different than the drunkard or the fornicator or the liar or the idolater. All who remain in their rebellion are damned.



Can a person be a Christian and still struggle against same sex attractions? Yes. When we become followers of Christ, we continue to battle the flesh in all its permutations (Galatians 5:16-17). But we have the power of Christ on our side, and we are called to gain mastery over the impulses that have plagued us, even if the impulses themselves remain. Christ will lead us in victory if we will receive His grace daily and obey Him.

Madison Project: 'Illegal Invasion,' 'Anti-Family Agenda' Make Conservatives 'Strangers In Our Own Country'

The Madison Project, the Tea Party group backed by Sen. Ted Cruz that’s pushing far-right challengers in Republican congressional races, marked the Fourth of July this year by lamenting that the “illegal invasion,” the “anti-family agenda,” Social Security, and the rest of the social safety net make them “feel like strangers in our own country.”

Sadly, many of us are spending this 4th of July wondering if our Founders would recognize that republic – that beacon of freedom built upon a strong civil society and ordered liberty. So many ordinary Americans feel our republic is long lost to a foreign socialist utopia centrally managed by an elitist oligarchy in the form of two corrupt political parties.

This small minority of radicals has completely vitiated our most fundamental characteristic as a republic – our sovereign borders. We are now languishing from the flood of over 100,000 illegal immigrants teaming over our southern border, adding to the millions of illegals already here. At stake is nothing less than the preservation of our civil society, sovereignty, and solvency as a nation and as a stable economy. They drain our resources, health care, education, and criminal justice system.

We feel like strangers in our own country.

Even without the illegal invasion, our republic is hanging on by a thread.

Almost every American is involuntarily subservient to the federal government for his or her retirement security and healthcare. Over 46 million people, and one-in-four children, rely upon government for food stamps. Under the new Obamacare mandates, an estimated 79 million Americans will be enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP. This culture of dependency, an anathema to our spirit of independence, has saddled us with over $1 million in debt and unfunded obligations for every American taxpayer.

Meanwhile, ordered liberty in a constitutional republic needs a strong civil society and strong families in order to thrive, much like fish in water. Yet, the cultural degeneration, promulgated and encouraged by this small societal elite, has permeated every aspect of American life – to the extent that those of us who adhere to traditional family values are now ostracized and castigated. We have reached the point where we need a group of unelected judges to grant us small morsels of religious liberty from their high benches in Washington. The small minority who push this invidious anti-family agenda now seek to eradicate the very existence of gender to the degree that private individuals and businesses are now being forces to accommodate bizarre and licentious practices.

The “Republican” Party was supposed to serve as the bulwark against attempts to supplant our republican form of government, yet they have become part and parcel of the problem. Decades’ worth of treachery directed towards the party faithful from its leadership has finally culminated with the Mississippi election last week. A long-serving Republican, with the blessing of the entire party establishment, engaged in fraud and race-baiting to repudiate his own party base and steal the election.

We are now living through the worst consequences of elective despotism that James Madison warned about in Federalist 48. Indeed we are strangers in our own country and in our own party.

Reilly: Gays Seek To Normalize Homosexuality In Order To Alleviate The Guilt Over Their 'Morally Disordered' Behavior

Former Bush administration official and current anti-gay activist Robert Reilly was a guest on Jesse Lee Peterson's radio program yesterday, promoting his new book "Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior Is Changing Everything" where he explained that the ultimate goal of gay activists is to make society accept the lie that homosexuality is okay in order to alleviate their own guilt about their "morally disordered" behavior.

Likening gays to criminals who justify their thievery, Reilly said that they seek to rationalize their own "sodomitical acts" as acceptable and then force everyone else to buy into the lie as well so they can avoid having to face "all the guilt that would normally accrue to their behavior."

Peterson agreed, saying that "homosexuals who are pushing this know that they are wrong, inside themselves they have guilt and they think that if they can convince the world that homosexuality is normal, then the guilt will go away."

But that guilt will never go away, Peterson concluded, "because it's wrong even if everybody says that it's right."

"You've diagnosed this whole thing absolutely correctly," Reilly responded:

Religious Right Pundit Calls For Boycott Of Independence Day Parades That Include Gay Rights Supporters

Laurie Higgins of the American Family Association’s Illinois affiliate is distraught that Boy Scouts wearing rainbow bandanas and a local Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) club participated in Independence Day parades in two Illinois towns this year.

In a column in BarbWire today, Higgins calls on parents to boycott any event that includes supporters of gay rights. “What a barbarous affront to families and an insult to our veterans,” the Illinois Family Institute cultural analyst writes. “No Christian should bring their children to any event that celebrates and affirms soul-destroying sexual perversion.”

She predicts that soon “there will be no square inch of life that will be left untouched by the sullied hands of homosexual perversity–no celebration, no public school, no career path, and no church will be left unmolested.”

Higgins laments that the founding fathers’ “vision for liberty has been twisted into a sickening defense of sexual predilections that will hurt individuals and weaken the country that so many have died to bring into existence and to defend,” turning America into an “uncivilized nation.”

A justifiably irate parent from Deerfield, a liberal community on the North Shore, contacted me to tell me that one of the scoutmasters and a couple of the scouts he leads in her son’s troop (Troop 50) decided to add rainbow-colored bandannas to their official uniforms to demonstrate their support for something. Perhaps they were showing their support for the change in Boy Scout policy which allows openly homosexual boys to become members, or maybe they were advocating for a change in policy so that men who are attracted to males can serve openly as leaders of males, or maybe they wanted to signal their affirmation of homosexuality, or perhaps they want men-wannabes (i.e., cross-dressers and the genitally mutilated) to serve as leaders.

Angry parents of young children in Wheaton, a conservative community which is home to Wheaton College and a dozen theologically orthodox churches, contacted me to express their frustration that for the second year in a row, the homosexuality-affirming organization Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) had marched in the parade. No one opposes friendships with homosexuals, but, of course, that’s not really what this deviously-named organization is promoting.



Communities now take pride in affirming shameful behaviors, with our elected leaders marching pridefully in celebration of that which no man or woman should celebrate let alone celebrate on Main Street in front of children. What a barbarous affront to families and an insult to our veterans. No Christian should bring their children to any event that celebrates and affirms soul-destroying sexual perversion. If Christians are unwilling to make even this small sacrifice, they are woefully unprepared for what’s coming.

Some will be tsk-tsking me (or worse) for criticizing these intrusions into what should be occasions to celebrate the founding of the greatest nation that has ever existed on this planet—a nation founded by men who understood that God exists and absolute, objective, transcendent, eternal moral truths exist. These men of diverse theological views would share in common a sense of outrage that their vision for liberty has been twisted into a sickening defense of sexual predilections that will hurt individuals and weaken the country that so many have died to bring into existence and to defend.



The proverbial writing has been on the wall for quite some time, and it doesn’t take a Daniel to read it. There will be no square inch of life that will be left untouched by the sullied hands of homosexual perversity–no celebration, no public school, no career path, and no church will be left unmolested.

If your community parade included participants who celebrated ideas to which no young children should be exposed, call the appropriate village, town, or city officials to express your opposition, telling them that next year you will find a child-friendly activity way to celebrate the founding of this increasingly uncivilized nation.

Todd Starnes Warns Of Anti-Duck Dynasty Violence, Links Same-Sex Marriage To Healthy Food Initiatives

In an interview last week with talk show host Jeanne Dennis, Fox News commentator Todd Starnes predicted that conservative Christians will soon organize acts of civil disobedience and street demonstrations akin to the Civil Rights Movement to protest their purported oppression.

Starnes specifically cited Phil Robertson, who was briefly suspended from the A&E show “Duck Dynasty” for making racist and anti-gay remarks in a magazine interview, as a victim of “persecution.”

He even said that criticism of Robertson will lead to violence: “If you can take someone like Phil Robertson and say, ‘Phil Robertson is preaching hate,’ or, ‘He’s speaking hate,’ eventually that is going to justify violence against those kinds of people.”

Later in the interview, Starnes linked same-sex marriage to feminism, which he said is waging “an attack on men” and “putting limitations” on women, and to Michelle Obama’s healthy diet and living initiatives, which he feared would lead to a ban on Nutter Butters and cheeseburgers.

Starnes said that feminism, same-sex marriage and the first lady’s health advocacy are all part of an attempt to “tear down the family unit” and make the government “control everything.” He finished by making a joke mocking transgender people.

Dave Daubenmire Suggests LGBT-Affirming Adults Are Better Off Dead, Decries Democrats As 'Children Of Lucifer'

Far-right pundit Dave Daubenmire attended a gay pride parade in Springfield, Missouri, last month and posted photos of participants in his latest column, decrying “the young souls parading their sin in the public streets.”

“Homosexuality is gobbling up our young kids,” he added, warning that children “are being lured into a self-destructive behavior because they have bought the lie that homosexuality is normal.”

Alluding to a verse from the Book of Matthew, Daubenmire wrote that it “would have been better for these adults had they been drowned with a millstone around their necks than having mislead one of these little ones.”

I just returned home with a group of hearty men from witnessing at the Homosexual Pride Parade in Springfield, Missouri. As usual, I was heartbroken by the age of those who have been captured by the “lifestyle.” Take a look at these photos. Notice the young souls parading their sin in the public streets. It would have been better for these adults had they beendrowned with a millstone around their necks than having mislead one of these little ones.

These two pictures, in particular, broke my heart. These are somebody's daughters. I wonder if their Mom's and Dad's hearts' are broken too?

When we returned, I posted some of these images on my Facebook page. My intent was to prick the hearts of people to action. Homosexuality is gobbling up our young kids. There is nothing “gay” about it. They are being lured into a self-destructive behavior because they have bought the lie that homosexuality is normal. It isn't. It is deviant. Someone needs to tell them, help them, and lead them to the truth. Our churches have turned a blind eye.

In another column, Daubenmire claimed that the Democratic Party “should be called the Party of Death” due to its support for abortion rights and gay equality.

“Hedonistic” Democrats, Daubenmire explained, are the “children of Lucifer” who deny science and promote “homosex” to children.

“Smoking a Marlboro is bad but sodomizing the Marlboro Man is worse,” he said.

The Bible teaches us that Jesus is the embodiment of Truth. The American-left hates Truth. It is obvious for anyone with the courage to admit it. The Democratic Party in America should be called the Party of Death because two of their leading platforms support death if it gets in the way of Pursuit of personal Happiness.

Abortion kills an unborn baby. All of the legal linguistics and excuses that the God-haters use supplant the freedom of choice over the unalienable Right to Life. “Choice” is not an unalienable right. The God-haters love science and all the “evidence” it can provide to disprove the existence of God, yet they ignore ALL Medical Science which unquestionably proves that a “fetus” is a life.

But that doesn't matter...it is hedonistic-happiness that is paramount to the children of Lucifer...even to the denial of what is obvious to everyone. They admit that a fetus is “alive” but that it is not “viable” or “self-aware” or “unable to live on its own.” Funny, isn't it? That is the same position that the Left is taking in regards to the aged...because the Left loves death.



Help me out here...can someone tell me why our schools spend so much time teaching our kids the dangers of smoking while we laud and encourage a far more lethal behavior of male-on-male anal sex? Smoking a Marlboro is bad but sodomizing the Marlboro Man is worse.

Thousands of innocent people around the world have gotten HIV by accident. The AIDS virus is the sexual equivalent of second-hand smoke. The Left denies and lies about any science that doesn't fit their agenda. If you disagree with their interpretation of science you are intolerant, bigoted, and homo-phobic.

Ask yourself this, Mom and Dad. Would you rather your child smoked a cigarette or engaged in homosex? Which is your school teaching is worse? Both abortion and HIV is acquired. The Left wants to separate their behavior from the consequences, no matter how many innocent have to die. Happiness is more important than Life.



If abortion ended tomorrow more babies would live. If sodomy was criminalized tomorrow more people would live. The Science supports my position. But the God-haters love death more than Truth.

Barber: Hobby Lobby Decision 'Bodes Very Well' For Christians Who Want To Discriminate Against Gays

In the wake of the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision, Miranda noted how anti-gay activists were excited by the prospect that the decision had set a precedent that could now be used to exempt Christian businesses from having to comply with anti-discrimination laws when it comes to issues like gay marriage.

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber addressed exactly this issue, saying that he is hopeful that anti-gay Christians will now have a solid defense when they refuse to "be an indentured servant" by providing services to "a counterfeit gay marriage" because this ruling was "a strong rebuke of all those sexual orientation laws around the country in cities and municipalities and states that say somehow gays win, Christians lose, sexual orientation trumps all."

"This decision, if you read between the lines," Barber asserted, "it says religious freedom is sacrosanct, including for the business owner."

Saying that nowhere in the Constitution does it say that Christians are required to participate in sin by providing services for a gay wedding that mocks God, Barber believes that this decision "sends a strong signal" that religious liberty is protected by the Constitution and by law while sexual orientation is not.

"Clearly the First Amendment and RFRA, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, read through the prism of this decision," Barber said, "I believe bodes very well for Christians who say 'we will not partake and give any recognition to fake same-sex marriage'":

Scott Lively: There Is A Gay Agenda, And It 'Reflects An Insane And Satanic Delusion'

Like many of us, Scott Lively spent the Fourth of July weekend reflecting on the “gay agenda,” and on Sunday published a WorldNetDaily column arguing that said agenda very much exists and in fact “reflects an insane and Satanic delusion which breeds chaos."

Lively argues, as he does frequently, that he didn’t mind when the gay rights movement was about “the right to be left alone,” but he doesn’t like what he sees as the post-Stonewall turn toward the “radically Marxist goal” of destroying the family and all of society.

Mentioning the “gay” agenda in the presence of an LGBT activist or any other Cultural Marxist is like pulling the string on a Sheriff Woody doll, you hear precisely the same recording each time: “What gay agenda? There is no gay agenda.”

But, of course, the audacious lie that the now-global LGBT political movement has “no agenda” is as transparent as the Emperor’s new clothes. Indeed, their agenda is not only undeniable, it has unfortunately become unavoidable!

An agenda is simply a plan or list of matters to be acted upon by a person or group related to a strategic goal to be achieved. By definition, every person or group with a goal has one.

The original goal of the “gay” movement was best summarized by Dale Jennings of the Mattachine Society as “the right to be left alone.” Before Stonewall: Activists for Gay and Lesbian Rights in Historical Context, Phd Dececco (John), John Dececco, Phd, Vern L Bullough, Vern L Bullough, RN, PhD, Haworth Press, 2002, p 88. That goal can be translated as “tolerance.” I think it is fair to say that the vast majority of pro-family advocates and activists in the world today (including this writer) would gladly support that goal.

However, with the violent Stonewall Riot of June 28, 1969 (celebrated annually today as “Gay Pride Day“), the movement adopted a radical Marxist goal and agenda heavily influenced by Herbert Marcuse of the Frankfort School of “Cultural Marxists.”

In conclusion, the “gay” agenda is to eliminate the existing Judeo-Christian model of civilization, grounded in marriage-based procreative sexuality, to make way for an irrational and impossible Cultural Marxist model which imagines family-less unlimited “sexual freedom” (anarchy), while somehow preserving orderliness in every other aspect of human society. It reflects an insane and Satanic delusion which breeds chaos, and can only be stopped by unceasing reaffirmation of Biblical values and the natural family by the rest of us.

Joseph Farah Offers 'Tough Love' To Elton John: Homosexuality Is A 'Vile Practice'

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah is outraged that Elton John cited the teachings of Jesus Christ as a reason to support marriage equality, because obviously only anti-equality activists are allowed to point to scripture.

In a column yesterday, Farah offered the musician some “tough love” that is “designed to save people from really bad decisions.”

After calling same-sex marriage an “absurd” “oxymoron” that validates a “vile practice” and will bring down civilization, Farah argued that gay people can only take part in “make-believe marriages.”

“A marriage that is not consummated has long been considered incomplete, not deserving of any legal recognition whatsoever,” he wrote. “So please tell me how a same-sex couple consummates one of these make-believe marriages? Acts of sodomy were never considered consummation in the eyes of the law.”

Not only has man put asunder individual marriages, but people like Elton John, Barack Obama and a host of judges have, some in the name of Jesus, attempted to put asunder the entire concept of marriage.



Mind you, just the practice of homosexuality is an abomination, according to Leviticus 18:22 and Leviticus 23:13. Romans 1:26-27 show this view did not change after Jesus’ death and resurrection. But what Elton John is advocating and practicing is something more than just the practice of an “abomination” and a “vile practice.” He’s also promoting the profaning of marriage, an institution Jesus said was created by God in the Garden of Eden.

Let me lay some cards on the table, not with the intent of being mean to people who feel differently, but in the spirit of tough love, designed to save people from really bad decisions:

1.Same-sex marriage is an oxymoron. “Marriage” is and shall always remain an institution between one man and one woman. No civilization or culture in the history of the world has ever experimented with same-sex marriage, though there were questionable experiments with polygamy, always fraught with severe and negative consequences. Bible-believing Jews and Christians consider marriage a divinely created institution. This account was confirmed by Jesus in the gospels when He was asked about divorce. What today’s proponents of same-sex marriage seek to do is redefine marriage, claiming this institution that has long been seen as the literal building block of civilized, productive and self-governing societies is “discriminatory” because it prohibits homosexuals from participating. Nothing could be more absurd.

2. Legally speaking, though, even in an increasingly secular society like ours, there is a reason same-sex marriages could never be recognized. A marriage that is not consummated has long been considered incomplete, not deserving of any legal recognition whatsoever. A marriage union that remains unconsummated never happened in the eyes of the law. So please tell me how a same-sex couple consummates one of these make-believe marriages? Acts of sodomy were never considered consummation in the eyes of the law. Again, this suggests that whatever it is the homosexual activists are trying to achieve through their relentless campaign, it is not marriage. It would have to be some complete and utter corruption of the idea of marriage.

It’s time to lay it on the line with some plain talk: Two men cannot marry each other because they cannot consummate that union. Period. End of story. Two women cannot marry each other because they cannot consummate that union. Period. End of story.

Tony Perkins Says Obama's Push For 'Radical Sexualism' And 'Global Homosexuality' Is Persecuting Christians

Tony Perkins has never been a fan of President Obama’s support for LGBT rights abroad, even going so far as to defend Uganda’s “kill the gays” bill as an “effort to uphold moral conduct."

In his radio bulletin today, the Family Research Council president attacked the Obama administration’s decision to “export immorality” by promoting “global homosexuality” and “radical sexualism.”

He even charged that U.S. support for LGBT rights is somehow harming “Christians persecuted overseas” by undercutting religious freedom.

Under the current administration, America’s top export is immorality. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Considering the news, foreign policy must be a foreign concept to this White House. While the veterans watch as the Middle East implodes, the President's trying to put troops on the ground in the fight to promote global homosexuality. When the U.S. embassy isn't flying rainbow flags, the Obama administration is planting them -- for radical sexualism. During this month's LGBT pep rally at the State Department, John Kerry said his biggest focus was "working hard to have lesbian, bisexual, and transgender ambassadors." He went on to say, "We now have hundreds of LGBT individuals in our bureaus at State, USAID, and at posts all around the world." Of course, what Kerry didn't mention is that his agenda is coming at the expense of the nation's real priorities. Unfortunately for Christians persecuted overseas, religious liberty is the casualty of this push. America's credibility is the other.

Matt Barber Bravely Stands Up For Uganda's Anti-Gay Crackdown

Liberty Counsel attorney Matt Barber wants President Obama and Vice President Biden to stop bullying Uganda merely because its leaders are taking the courageous stand of jailing gay people and making homosexuality a crime punishable up to life imprisonment.

In an article last week for OneNewsNow (the media arm of the American Family Association) entitled “Will U.S. bully nations if they are anti-'gay'?,” Barber expressed outrage that the Obama administration is treating gays as human beings.

Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action and founder of Barbwire.com, says to hear Biden one would think America's chief export right now is immorality.

"... The fact [is] that the majority of the world recognizes that it's offensive to compare sexual license to true human rights violations," he tells OneNewsNow. "And the fact that that escapes Joe Biden and President Obama boggles the mind."



Barber argues that those who promote LGBT rights are using "euphemistic language to dishonestly conflate human rights with disordered sexual license."

"For Joe Biden to tell the world, a world that embraces sexual morality and traditional values, [that] I don't care what your culture is [is essentially telling other nations] You must embrace the United States' immoral view of sexual immorality and sexual sin or we're going to penalize you with the powers of the purse string." (emphasis in original)

Which Barber points out is exactly what the U.S. has done to Uganda. That country passed a law in February that strengthened criminal penalties for homosexual acts and made life sentences possible for those convicted of breaking the law. Last week, the U.S. imposed visa bans on Ugandan officials who the administration feels are violating homosexual rights there.

Scott Lively: John Oliver Is 'A Liar And A Fraud'

Anti-LGBT pastor Scott Lively is not happy with HBO host John Oliver’s recent commentary regarding the crackdown on the gay community in Uganda and Lively’s role in it.

While Lively traveled to Uganda in 2009 to promote anti-LGBT views, he has since tried to distance himself from the country’s new draconian laws, and did not take kindly to Oliver’s suggestion that his lobbying efforts somehow played a role in enacting them.

I’m calling out John Oliver as a liar and a fraud who couldn’t go ten minutes with me in an unscripted, unedited debate. Without his teleprompter and his cheap-shot, out-of-context video clips he would be exposed as just another left-wing loony.

Oliver is lying through selective editing re Rwanda and several other points. His show was one continuous stream of malicious LGBT propaganda in the guise of comedy.

Yes, it will likely negatively affect the voters, as it was intended to do. It’s one more example of the “politics of personal destruction” that Saul Alinsky taught the “progressives,” including journalists, to practice

Lively also wrote in WorldNetDaily today about the need to fight “Marxist elites” before it’s too late:

I believe the Marxist elites are conspiring to legalize “gay marriage” at the Supreme Court as soon as 2015.



Last week a three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals voted 2-1 to strike down the Utah DOMA, making it the first to be ruled upon at the appellate level. The decision was stayed pending trial, which will probably occur late this year or early next year with a final decision coming down in June of 2015.

Utah could be the case Ginsburg and her pals will use to keep their promise to the left, IF they believe they can pull it off without triggering widespread cultural backlash. That IF is our ray of hope.

Now, more than ever, it is important for the pro-family movement to fight back against the “gay” agenda and to firmly reject the elites’ Marxist rhetorical presumption of inevitable victory in “the tide of history.”

Ginsburg revealed the chink in their armor: public resistance! The pro-family movement is already stronger than the pro-life movement was in 1973. Perhaps if we push back hard enough against this latest social engineering scheme we can prevent SCOTUS from cursing us with an LGBT Roe v Wade. Lets [sic] get to work!

In a campaign ad that began airing last week in Arizona, Republican gubernatorial candidate Andrew Thomas boasts of having “stood up to the gay lobby” and promises to stop undocumented immigrants “before it’s too late.” “When I enforced the law, illegal immigrants fled this state. Now they stay and protest” Thomas, a former Maricopa County attorney, says in the ad, as he’s flanked by a mostly-white crowd. Thomas was disbarred in 2012 after facing corruption charges.

Two candidates with sterling Religious Right credentials won runoff primary elections yesterday to become GOP nominees to the U.S. House in Georgia. Jody Hice won a primary to succeed Rep. Paul Broun in Georgia’s 10th District, and seems prepared to pick up Broun’s mantle as one of the most far-right members of Congress. In 2012, Hice wrote a book in which he claimed that gay people have launched a scheme to “sodomize” children and proposed that Muslims be denied First Amendment rights. Hice, a Baptist pastor, also hosts a syndicated radio show in which he has... MORE

Bert Farias, founder of Holy Fire Ministries, had a piece published on Charisma Magazine's website today in which he begged gay people to "please do not get upset with me" for trying to tell them "the raw, naked truth about homosexuality," promising that if they will just listen to him, they "will see that I am actually trying to help you." And Farias' message of love is that "being gay is a choice" and choosing to be gay puts one at risk of engaging in "unclean practices that open up a person to the demonic." And once that happens,...

The American Family Association simply doesn’t understand why more and more Americans support equal rights for the gay community when, according to a recent study, just over two percent of people openly identified as gay, lesbian or bisexual … because as everybody knows that rights are determined by population size! AFA head Tim Wildmon, in a statement about the study today, criticized the gay community as “an extremely small population” that is bent on “inundating television shows” and “bullying” Americans until they are “given special...

Right-wing blogger Michael Bresciani is out today with yet another column castigating President Obama’s war on “our moral beliefs and our southern border,” warning that Obama is “conscripting” women, gay people, immigrants and terrorists in his plan to bring down America. He is especially wary of Obama’s gay “elite forces” who seek to turn America into a country “where perversion is the new Apple Pie.” “Homosexuals are conscripted by the war efforts of the media, Hollywood and the gay-loving President who is the new rainbow...
