Erik Rush: Gays Aligned With ISIS

WorldNetDaily pundit Erik Rush writes today that gay rights activists and ISIS are both persecuting Christians, just with “a different methodology.” While ISIS is attempting to carry out an anti-Christian genocide, Rush claims that gay people in America are using the “gratuitous proliferation of homoerotica” to push “the disenfranchisement of Christians.”

“Progressive power players hate Christians because we threaten their power, and the true-believing useful idiots hate Christians because they’ve been taught that we wish to place impediments upon their freedom to be self-destructive, unregenerate hedonists,” he writes.

“It says a lot that so many liberal Americans have decided to stand with abject animals, men who are capable of the most heinous, disgusting, depraved war crimes imaginable, and against their own countrymen and women who happen to be Christians.”

“Obama has more than a nodding acquaintance with all things gay,” Rush says while linking to a WND article about Obama’s secret “gay life” and also claiming Obama is a Muslim: “Finally, addressing the Islamist horde that has promised to raise its flag over the White House: In a sense, it has already been done.”

But Rush has a solution: “Now more than ever, I believe it is apparent that progressivism cloaks with its innocuousness and faux egalitarianism a doctrine that should be stigmatized and disenfranchised, employing the same commitment with which we addressed segregationism.”

What I’d like to concentrate on at the moment is that the majority of the unfortunates in Iraq who are facing this genocide are Christians. Indeed, the majority of those being horribly persecuted by Muslims in nations across the Middle East and parts of Africa are Christians.

In America, we are seeing a different methodology being used to disenfranchise Christians, but rest assured, many of the principals and operatives are the same people. Last week, President Obama took a break from his strenuous schedule of fundraising, golf and vacationing to make a surprise video appearance at the opening ceremonies of the 2014 Gay Games in Cleveland. Obama went out of his way to recognize the persecution of homosexuals in other countries, America’s openness and the acceptance of gays being part of the “very idea” of America.

It isn’t necessary at this time to belabor the fact Obama has more than a nodding acquaintance with all things gay, but I found this conspicuous display somewhat curious in light of the recent Centers of Disease Control, or CDC, survey that revealed less than three percent of Americans identify as homosexual. Given the messages we get from activists, the press, government and entertainment media, one would think the number was 10 times as high. Given their miniscule numbers, homosexuals certainly don’t warrant Obama’s attention as an election-making segment of the Democrats’ base.

So why has there been such an imperative around the inculcation of homosexuality into our culture? Activists would tell you they’re just stumping for the rights of homosexuals, but that’s twaddle. Were that the case, it wouldn’t take the wholesale indoctrination and attempts at the normalization of homosexuality we see daily. There’s little doubt that you’ve encountered the gratuitous proliferation of homoerotica in dramatic and even comedic films and television. The news media are replete with accounts of the parents of grade-school children objecting to the inclusion of homosexual materials in educational curricula, and one would be hard-pressed to find any news or entertainment media offering that frames any homosexual in a bad light. Were Jeffrey Dahmer to come on the scene in 2014, I would wager his sexuality would be avoided by the press with the utmost adroitness.

As always, any objection to these trends risks one being branded a “homophobe.”

Well, the imperative I mentioned earlier has nothing to do with the rights of homosexuals; it isn’t even the promotion of societal dysfunction, although that is an ancillary benefit. The objective – as we have seen in Europe – is the disenfranchisement of Christians. And it isn’t just that a Christian society is more morally grounded than a secular one and thus more difficult to control – although this is true – but there’s another factor involved.

And that is hate.

Those on the political left hate Christians; their proclivity for perennially calling Christians haters is of course pure projection. Progressive power players hate Christians because we threaten their power, and the true-believing useful idiots hate Christians because they’ve been taught that we wish to place impediments upon their freedom to be self-destructive, unregenerate hedonists.



Coming full circle, we note with some irony that those true-believing useful idiots on the left – some of them homosexual themselves – share the same big tent with another political special interest and beneficiary of progressives’ largesse: Muslims, those who would just as readily and just as severely persecute homosexuals, women, children and, of course, non-Muslims in America as they are doing in Iraq.

It says a lot that so many liberal Americans have decided to stand with abject animals, men who are capable of the most heinous, disgusting, depraved war crimes imaginable, and against their own countrymen and women who happen to be Christians, and against our ally Israel. Now more than ever, I believe it is apparent that progressivism cloaks with its innocuousness and faux egalitarianism a doctrine that should be stigmatized and disenfranchised, employing the same commitment with which we addressed segregationism. Damn the craven, the ignoramuses and the deluded with their assorted “phobe” indictments. We’re playing for keeps.

Finally, addressing the Islamist horde that has promised to raise its flag over the White House: In a sense, it has already been done. Considering the degree to which Barack Obama has enabled Islamists worldwide both overtly and covertly, his insinuation of Islamist operatives into our government, the chaotic situation on our southern border and our immigration policy in general, American progressives may get to test that “big tent” allegiance to their Islamist friends sooner than they think.

Anti-Gay Marriage Leader's Ex-Wife Left Him For Another Woman

Earlier today we reported that Jonathan Saenz of the anti-gay group Texas Values put together a press conference last week to attack gay rights as a push to snuff out freedom and imprison pastors. In fact, Saenz has been one of the most vocal opponents of LGBT rights laws, alleging that they “terrorize women and children” and pave the way for Christian concentration camps.

It seems the fight for Saenz is quite personal, especially since his ex-wife reportedly left him for another woman, and Saenz unsuccessfully attempted to stop her partner from being in the presence of their children, according to an article from Lone Star Q:

Court records indicate that Saenz’s ex-wife, Corrine Morris Rodriguez Saenz, is a member of the LGBT community who was dating another woman when she filed for divorce from Saenz in August 2011.

In early 2012, with their divorce still pending, Saenz would take the helm of Texas Values after the organization spun off from the Liberty Legal Institute, where he’d risen to chief lobbyist.

With Saenz as president, Texas Values has led the charge against not only same-sex marriage, but also passage of LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinances in San Antonio and Houston. In fighting the ordinances, Saenz has often repeated the debunked right-wing myth that sexual predators would use the laws to prey on women and children in bathrooms.



During their divorce, Jonathan Saenz unsuccessfully sought to permanently bar Corrine Saenz’s girlfriend from being in the presence of the children, records show. At one point, he also sought to jail his ex-wife for failing to undergo an evaluation by a psychologist of his choosing—even though he refused to pay the psychologist’s $2,500 fee.

Both Corrine and Jonathan Saenz agreed to psychological evaluations as part of the divorce, but results aren’t included in the case file. However, court records suggest Jonathan Saenz had a prior history of mental health treatment. During discovery in the divorce, Jonathan Saenz sought to compel his ex-wife to produce all records in her possession “pertaining to the psychiatric, psychological, counseling or other mental health treatments of Jonathan Saenz, including but not limited to any documents relating to any consultations or treatments during their marriage.”



In her original petition for divorce, Corrine Saenz alleged their marriage was “insupportable due to discord or conflict of personalities … that destroys the legitimate ends of marriage and prevents reasonable expectations of reconciliation.” In his initial response, Jonathan Saenz denied that claim and asked the court to refuse to grant the divorce on those grounds.

Jonathan Saenz also sought an order barring Corrine Saenz from allowing “any unrelated adult, with whom the parent has an intimate, romantic, emotional, and/or dating relationship to remain in the presence of the children, including but not limited to Ercimin Paredes, a/k/a Ercilia M. Paredes.”

Paredes was Corrine Saenz’s girlfriend, court records indicate, and they both taught at Becker Elementary School in the Austin Independent School District.



According to court records, Jonathan Saenz alleged that Corrine Saenz was “deeply involved in her relationship with Ms. Paredes as early as the fall of 2010.”

In a counterpetition for divorce dated May 7, 2013, Jonathan Saenz accused Corrine Saenz of adultery and sought a permanent order barring Paredes from being in the presence of the children.

But Jonathan Saenz was unsuccessful, and there is no mention of Paredes in the Agreed Final Decree of Divorce, which was hammered out through mediation.

Linda Harvey: Gay Games 'Disguise The Truth' About Homosexuality

Linda Harvey is not happy that an Ohio Republican group is welcoming attendees to this year’s Gay Games, the event for LGBT athletes that is taking place in Cleveland and Akron.

The Ohio-based activist, who hopes to ban LGBT Pride Parades, denounced both the Gay Games and the Cuyahoga County Republicans today on her “Mission America” radio commentary: “Why do we need events like this which give legitimacy to a deviant and harmful lifestyle? The purpose of the Gay Games may well be to try to create a different impression and disguise the truth, which is that homosexuality is associated with much higher health risks and it is not life-honoring and life-giving behavior but the opposite.”

“God never intended, as we are told in scripture, for humans to pair up with the same-sex and it is shameful that leaders in the Republican Party are endorsing such immorality.”

Texas Activists: Gays Will 'Obliterate' Freedom, Imprison Pastors

Steve Washburn of First Baptist Pflugerville, the pastor who campaigned against health insurance benefits for the domestic partners of gay school district employees in his city, joined Charles Flowers and Cathie Adams at the Texas Values anti-gay press conference last week.

Citing absolutely zero evidence, Washburn said that gay rights activists are trying to enact hate speech laws and throw pastors in jail.

“If it becomes illegal for us to stand in our pulpit and preach pro-family issues, if that biblical language becomes hate speech, if we are facing imprisonment by speaking our religion which is defended by the First Amendment, we are going to see thousands and thousands of Bible-preaching pastors going to jail,” he said. “And I don’t think anyone wants to see that.”

Afterward, Jonathan Saenz, the leader of Texas Values, concluded the press conference with his own ominous warning: “You’re going to see more and more people recognize the tremendous threat of redefining marriage and I think it is becoming very clear to people that if marriage is redefined, religious liberty will be obliterated.”

“You will see more attacks on churches than you are already seeing right now and they have already started, because that is the goal to a lot of people, it is not simply to change the definition of marriage but essentially to destroy it and to have a type of sexual behavior being recognized and protected in law that will be to the detriment of our society and to churches across our country.”

Cathie Adams: People Are Fleeing Marriage Equality States

Cathie Adams of the Texas Eagle Forum suggested last week that people are leaving states like Massachusetts for Texas as a result of their different marriage laws, and advised gay Texans and their supporters to simply leave the state.

During the Texas Values anti-gay press conference, Adams said that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage is a reason for its population growth: “Texas is the fastest growing state in the nation and there is a reason for that, and part of that reason is traditional marriage.”

She continued:

This is good for Texas families. We do not accept the homosexual agenda, that is what we are talking about here. If those who embrace that homosexual agenda want to move to a state that does embrace homosexual marriage, there is a state of Massachusetts that they could move to. But we are finding is that they’re not moving to Massachusetts, what is happening is that Massachusetts is declining in numbers, people are moving out of that state. So why in the world would Texas, that is growing and the fastest growing, want to join Massachusetts, that is declining. People are moving away, they are voting with their feet, out of Massachusetts. Yet, there are liberals who are trying to influence all of us in places like Hollywood and San Francisco. They want to change Texas.

Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly has similarly claimed that “many Americans are dissenting with their feet, by moving away from same-sex marriage states and into the many states that continue to recognize the value of marriage as being between only one man and one woman.”

Matt Barber Pledges Civil Disobedience To Stop Same-Sex Marriage

Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel said last week that the Religious Right should prepare for mass civil disobedience to fight “so-called same-sex marriage and the LGBT sexual orientation agenda,” which he claims somehow violates the rights of Christians.

During an interview on REEL Talk, Barber said that “we are going to reach a point in the U.S. where we revisit some of the civil disobedience that we saw in the 60s during those civil rights struggles.”

Barber repeatedly claimed that the modern Religious Right is the heir to the work of Martin Luther King Jr. Of course, white conservatives of King’s day opposed desegregation (Barber’s idol Jerry Falwell was one of segregation’s biggest supporters). Not to mention that King was a vocal supporter of the labor and family planning movements, and sharply disagreed with conservatives on school-organized prayer.

The Liberty Counsel attorney went on to compare the state of conservative Christians in the U.S. to Jews in Nazi Germany due to the debate over “counterfeit gay marriage.”

“They are going after Christians, they are going after churches,” Barber said. “It’s escalating but we’re not to the point, obviously, that we’re seeing with our Christian brothers and sisters around the world in Iraq, Syria and Sudan and elsewhere where they are literally being tortured and beheaded. It’s a soft persecution in the United States but that is the gateway drug, unfortunately, to violent persecution.”

Speaking of the actual oppression of Christians by groups like ISIS, Barber alleged that the “Muslim sympathizer” President Obama is actually aligned with the violent group: “He finds himself aligning even with barbarians like those of ISIS and others around the world and turning a blind eye to their horrific genocide.”

AFA: Archie Is Destroying America's Youth

Tim Wildmon and Ed Vitagliano of the American Family Association are upset about the direction of Archie Comics, and spoke with Religious Right pundit Larry Tomczak on today’s edition of “Today’s Issues” about how Archie is corrupting young people with messages promoting “the occult and homosexuality.”

Tomczak described how in a recent issue Archie dies while taking a bullet for his gay friend, something Wildmon apparently found hilarious as he cracked up while Tomczek detailed the plot.

“I know I sound like an old crank but when kids grow up being fed lies, why should we surprised if they believe lies? Why should we be surprised if they say there is nothing wrong with same-sex marriage?” Vitagliano said. “These kids grew up watching their parents laugh at Will & Grace, which changed people’s opinions, and now the kids don’t have a problem with it.”

Sandy Rios: Parents Failing To Protect Children From 'Authoritarian Regime' Of Public Schools

Another day, another example of the Religious Right’s persecution complex. On today’s edition of “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” listeners heard the sad tale of Laurie Higgins,  a cultural analyst at the American Family Association-affiliated Illinois Family Institute, who spoke of the “liberal intolerance” and “persecution” she encountered in her previous work as a high school administrator.

Higgins described how she was demoted and shunned by her colleagues because she spoke out against “pro-homosexual resources,” like “Angels in America,” being available to students in the school library. She was also frustrated by the school’s “complete unwillingness” to include resources on LGBT issues that offered “opposing views.”

Rios and Higgins were shocked that no parents, teachers, or pastors came out in support of her or “dared to stand up for their own faith” in fear of the “authoritarian regime” of the school system.

“The halcyon days of being Christian in America are over,” warned Higgins.

In anticipation of the oppression ahead, Higgins advised: “Churches need to do a better job of preparing Christians to endure persecution, because it’s coming.” In her view, if parents and pastors aren’t actively driving LGBT books out of every school library, they “aren’t willing to suffer for Christ.” 

For Conservatives, Boycotts Are Noble Efforts When They Support Them, Otherwise It's 'Economic Terrorism'

It was only two years ago that conservative activists were irate that gay rights supporters dared to boycott Chick-fil-A because of donations to anti-gay groups.

Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel, for example, said he was outraged by liberals “intimidating” the restaurant chain, and described a similar pressure campaign against the Charity Give Back Group, which was also making contributions to anti-gay political organizations, as “economic terrorism” and proof that gay rights advocates “want to see us behind bars.”

Today, the same Matt Barber called for a boycott of Target over the company’s public support for marriage equality:

Target is filing legal briefs in court cases intended to win marriage rights for homosexuals and lesbians. Matt Barber, Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action and Founder of Barbwire.com, tells OneNewsNow it's a slap in the face to millions of pro-family customers who support true marriage between one man and one woman.

“It is just poor business,” he says. “Target, just like other corporations across the country, should at least remain neutral in this ongoing culture war. And at best, they should be endorsing the age old institution of natural marriage, which is the cornerstone to any healthy society.”

He says it's time for the public to speak up with a strong and united voice.

“I hope people will go into Target stores across the country and tell them that they are no longer going to buy products there because Target has joined in the attack on the institution of natural marriage,” he says. “They need to let it be known that they will take their business elsewhere and tell why they are doing so. That's what individuals can do about this.”

In fact, Barber’s boycott hypocrisy was already well established, as he and his group have previously backed boycotts and pressure campaigns against McDonalds, Starbucks, Lowe’s, Pay Pal, and companies that say “Happy Holidays.”

The National Organization for Marriage, which led boycotts against Starbucks and General Mills, yesterday launched a Boycott Target campaign.

The American Decency Association is also backing the Target boycott and urging supporters to cut up their Target credit cards:

Besides not shopping at Target, here a couple of other suggested actions to take:

- If you have a Target credit card, cut it up and return it to the company, or send copies of past receipts, with a note expressing your displeasure at the company’s choosing to align with the LGBT agenda instead of remaining neutral on this issue.

- If you know of a family member planning a wedding or expecting a baby, urge them not to use Target’s bridal and baby registry.

The group directs members to email the Minnesota-based company the following message:

For years Target has worked hard to provide quality products at a reasonable price. You have treated your employees and your customers well. Yet with Target’s recent decision to choose sides in the divisive cultural debate over homosexual marriage, you have put your focus on politics over products.

In 2012 Target affirmed its neutral position on this issue as a Target spokesperson stated: “We recognize that there is a broad range of strongly held views on the Minnesota Marriage amendment.”

I am one that holds to the definition of marriage that has stood for all time – the union of one man and one woman. Millions of others share my beliefs. In fact, A 2013 Star Tribune Minnesota poll revealed that Minnesotans were virtually split on this issue with 46 percent in support and 44 percent opposed, with 10 percent undecided.

Yet Target has chosen to offend half of the population in Minnesota, as well as the populations in other states where the opposition to homosexual marriage is often even higher!

I simply cannot support a company that blatantly undermines my values. Unless Target returns to a position of neutrality regarding this issue, you have lost me as a customer - and I will encourage my friends and family to also shop elsewhere. I strongly urge you to stick to selling quality products, instead of taking sides in promoting a divisive ideology.

I look forward to your response.

WND: Archie Is 'Promoting Homosexuality To Children' Since Liberals 'Do Not Wish To Run Out Of New Flesh'

WorldNetDaily columnist Marisa Martin was not pleased to hear the news that the comic book character Archie will die taking a bullet for his gay best friend. In a column today, Martin fumes that the writer and publisher of the Archie series are probably gay themselves and are “promoting homosexuality to children.”

“Well, the liberal bigotry from Archie Comics is quite clear,” she writes. “Fabricating a homosexual hero merely to propagandize certain sexual proclivities via children’s comics … they haven’t made suitable adjectives for this yet.”

Martin also reminisces about the good ole days of when she was once “blissfully unaware of the mechanics of the act, although kids have probably been calling each other ‘faggot’ for centuries. Still most of us had no idea exactly what that entailed – maybe something like weird hair – and we somehow survived.”

The column even includes a Benghazi joke and warnings about the occult.

Progressive “Archie” publisher and co-CEO John Goldwater informed the AP of this himself: “We hope by showing how something so violent can happen to Archie, that we can – in some way – learn from him.”

It’s understandable that Archie’s publishers would want him bashed, because they obviously reached way beyond the public gullibility point. How many straight guys have a “gay” best friend, anyway? Perhaps an acquaintance or even a few friends, but Kevin and Archie discussing baseball and the comparative hotness of his babes?

Goldwater is a true believer, though. Aggressively pushing a type of “gay” hero worship, he claims to have accidentally stumbled across the story idea.



It’s clearly all about the sex, or an “openly gay” character wouldn’t be intrusively inserted into the storyline in Boy Scout country of Riverdale. Merits of homosexuality are never discussed in Goldwater’s interviews or the appropriateness of forcing it on children either. Why not have Archie die for Mother Teresa or a bus load of children? No political capital.



Whether Goldwater or Parent are “gay” themselves or just in some sort of mindless thralldom, I wouldn’t claim to know. Perhaps that’s where they sniff the money and power is blowing, as so many others in corporate America and the arts have before them.

This could be merely nauseating when created for actual persons they have a crush on or something. But fabricating a homosexual hero merely to propagandize certain sexual proclivities via children’s comics … they haven’t made suitable adjectives for this yet.

Promoting homosexuality to children hasn’t been enough, though – Archie had to die for “great” causes. Why waste it? The other cause is gun control.

Writing for The Wire, Kevin O’Keefe explains the politics. The shooter “is after Kevin … a married senator-elect with big anti-gun plans after another shooter targeted gay victims in the nearby Southport Mall. But it’s unclear whether this shooter is a pro-gun nut or an anti-gay bigot – or both.”

Well, the liberal bigotry from Archie Comics is quite clear.



I’ll probably be accused of being a conspiracy theorist for this, but the timing of these social campaigns is extraordinarily coincidental. Goldwater and his cronies launch his big change-the-kids campaign about 2008, the nascent Obama years. Talking points are identical: change, diversity, gun control and promotion of “gay” and alternative lifestyles, specifically in the military – oh, and zombie invasions.

I’m sure it’s a total coincidence, though, and Goldwater and his co-workers have never even heard of Obama or the Democratic national platform, nor are they useful lackeys in any way or have they been promised an ambassador’s position in Libya.



But another memory comes to mind – my shock at first learning about homosexuality, thanks to junior high sex-ed. I was blissfully unaware of the mechanics of the act, although kids have probably been calling each other “faggot” for centuries. Still most of us had no idea exactly what that entailed – maybe something like weird hair – and we somehow survived.

Thanks to public education, the tireless campaigning of Planned Parenthood and self-interested work of LGBT groups who do not wish to run out of new flesh, your children and grandchildren will be much more sexually sophisticated and curious. And Archie Comics promises to aid in this quest per their press releases.



Characters and plots over the last decade are all headed toward any dark, slippery, violent and occult story line they can find or commission. Sadly, the art with the horror/social engineering/drama series is actually much better, its sole redemptive quality.

Staver: Same-Sex Marriage Not A Right Because Homosexuality Used To Be A Crime

On a recent episode of Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program, Mat Staver argued that marriage equality can’t be a fundamental right because it’s not “deeply rooted in our history that you have to protect it,” and in fact “homosexuality has always been considered a crime against nature” and “something that’s been criminalized in our culture.”

A fundamental right in constitutional law has to either be specifically articulated in an enumeration of the Constitution — so a fundamental right would be freedom of speech, freedom of religion, so it’s part of the First Amendment, it’s actually absolutely articulated — and if it’s not articulated, the court has said it has to be deeply rooted in our history such that if you were to not protect it, it would literally unravel the concept of ordered liberty that is so essential to who we are and it is so deeply rooted in our history that you have to protect it. Parental rights can be something that falls within a category such as that.

Now, here, obviously, the issue is, did same-sex marriage become a fundamental right? And the answer clearly is no. If they really were honest, it’s no. And to the contrary, same-sex marriage or homosexuality has always been considered a crime against nature. Instead of protection deeply rooted, it’s been something that’s been criminalized in our culture, not just in America but around the world.

Later in the program Staver discussed the recent appeals court decision striking down Virginia’s marriage equality ban with Liberty University Law School’s Rena Lindevaldsen. Lindevaldsen argued that because the court acknowledged that people in same-sex relationships sometimes raise children from opposite-sex relationships that it undermined the argument that being gay is a fundamental characteristic. “Now they’re saying, by the way, we can have relationships with whoever we want to and we still get this right to marriage,” she lamented.

Rick Wiles: 'Ebola Could Solve America's Problems With Atheism And Homosexuality'

Right before chatting with a Republican congressman on his on “Trunews” program yesterday, End Times radio host Rick Wiles said that an outbreak of Ebola in the U.S. might actually be a good thing if it ends up giving an “attitude adjustment” to all the gays and atheists, along with people who use pornography or have had an abortion, who will die if they aren’t “protected by God.”

“Now this Ebola epidemic can become a global pandemic and that’s another name for plague. It may be the great attitude adjustment that I believe is coming,” he said. “Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion.”

“If Ebola becomes a global plague, you better make sure the blood of Jesus is upon you, you better make sure you have been marked by the angels so that you are protected by God. If not, you may be a candidate to meet the Grim Reaper.”

Previously, Wiles linked President Obama to the Ebola outbreak.

David Barton: 'How Can You Be A Christian' And Be Gay Or Have An Abortion?

Earlier this week, John Hagee declared that Christians (or “counterfeit Christians,” as he called them) who are pro-choice or supportive of LGBT rights are the “greatest problem” leading to America’s destruction.

David Barton picked up the theme on his “Wallbuilders Live” radio program today, rattling off statistics showing that many young Christians don’t think homosexuality and abortion are sins, and that some have even had abortions or are “active homosexuals” themselves.

“Whoa,” Barton said. “There is nothing in the Bible — nothing — that aligns with this. How can you be a Christian and a follower of Jesus Christ when you don’t follow his teachings on these things?”

He concluded that it was a problem of “real biblical illiteracy” in the U.S.

North Carolina Religious Right Leader Blasts 'Despotism' And 'Tyranny' Of Pro-Equality Court Rulings

Last month, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper announced that he would no longer defend the state’s marriage equality ban  because "there are really no arguments left to be made." 

This did not sit well with Mark Creech, executive director of the North Carolina Action League. In a Christian Post column yesterday, Creech attacked Cooper for “wimpishly” capitulating to “tyranny” and yielding to the “despotism” of “judicial totalitarians.”

By refusing to resist with every legal means possible, Cooper capitulates to a form of tyranny in our day. He abandons his post on the field of battle, throws up the white flag, stands in the very place of the state (a state that voted by 61% for the marriage amendment) and wimpishly replies to the 4th Circuit that North Carolina accepts their judgment and surrenders. Furthermore, he calls on the judges who will preside over the cases currently challenging the state's marriage amendment to stand down and yield to the despotism of two judicial totalitarians.

Hagee: Pro-Choice, Pro-LGBT 'Counterfeit Christians' Are Nation's 'Greatest Problem'

Televangelist John Hagee dedicated his Sunday sermon this week to asking if America can “survive until 2017,” walking through a number of issues that he feared would impede the country’s survival. The chief among these, he said, are “counterfeit Christians” who are pro-choice or support LGBT rights.

“You people who are running around calling yourselves Christians supporting abortion, you are not!” he thundered.

“Our greatest problem in this nation is counterfeit Christianity,” he explained later in the sermon, telling gay-affirming pastors, “Those of you who got on national television and endorsed homosexual lifestyle because the president did so, you are a counterfeit Christian, you are a moral coward, you are a hireling shepherd. Shame on you.”

Hagee also warned that the separation of church and state “will prove suicidal for America.”
 

Peter LaBarbera Warns God Will Punish Sears, America For 'Surpassing Sodom'

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera stopped by “Crosstalk” on Monday to warn of divine retribution for the United States, and specifically the Sears company, for supporting gay rights.

The anti-gay activist and host Jim Schneider of Voice of Christian Youth America criticized Sears for participating in the Chicago Pride Parade and releasing a video featuring same-sex couples getting married.

“There goes Sears,” LaBarbera said. “I watched the video, it’s just so sad and tragic to me. The Bible says there’s a way to seems right to a man but the end of that way is death, basically. Attaching the perversion of homosexuality, which God called an abomination, detestable behavior, attaching that to marriage is just ungodly. It’s sad to see corporations celebrating this to get more sales and we’ll see if Sears suffers for this capitulation to the homosexual activist movement.”

LaBarbera also fielded a call from a listener named Steve who speculated that extreme weather in California is divine punishment for the state’s LGBT rights laws. LaBarbera sympathized with the caller’s theory: “The idea that America can go on promoting the worst kind of sins, and now the latest is sadomasochism after homosexuality, and not be judged, I think that’s folly.” 

Speaking with another caller who compared the U.S. to Sodom and Gomorrah, LaBarbera said that “in some areas, we’ve surpassed Sodom.”

David Barton Repeats Debunked Claim That Chaplains Are Forced To Perform Same-Sex Weddings

Last year, after the Supreme Court struck down the federal component of the Defense of Marriage Act, David Barton claimed that the ruling would force military chaplains to perform same-sex marriages against their will.

That fear, of course, was completely unfounded and the Pentagon clarified that DOMA repeal would in no way mean that a military chaplain would have to perform a marriage against his will.

But Barton is still claiming that military chaplains are being forced to officiate same-sex weddings that violate their religious beliefs, saying on his “Wallbuilders Live” program today that military commanders are ordering chaplains to “perform homosexual weddings.”

Religious Right Group Warns 'Nebuchadnezzar' Obama Is Persecuting Christians With LGBT Rights Push

The American Decency Association is still reeling from President Obama’s executive order barring federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT employees, warning that under his administration “homosexuality trumps religious liberty.”

“There is no good news in our government affirming a lifestyle that leads to destruction,” writes Lisa Van Houten of the ADA in a recent post on the organization’s website. “As greater discrimination and even persecution comes, may you and I not bow to Nebuchadnezzar, but stand for what is faithful and true.”

On July 20 President Obama used his pen (not his phone) to once again usurp the role of Congress, mandating an executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

As the law by authoritarian decree was signed to the cheers from homosexual activists gathered in the room, someone shouted: “Amen!” to which President Obama responded. “Amen! Amen! We have the amen corner here! Don’t get me started preaching.”

What our president “preaches” certainly isn’t gospel truth. There is no good news in our government affirming a lifestyle that leads to destruction. (Romans 1)

In essence this edict from President Obama mandates that all federal contractors and subcontractors -- regardless of their religious and moral convictions -- give special treatment to homosexuals, transgenders, and cross-dressers in the workplace. Such legislation - referred to as ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) - has long been coveted by LGBT activists.

This puts sexual behaviors on the same level of immutable characteristics as race and ethnicity. It also elevates LGBT affiliation over and above the first amendment freedom of religion and the free exercise of those religious beliefs.

Just weeks earlier the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the religious freedom of the Green family, the owners of Hobby Lobby, to not provide abortifacients to their employees (required under ObamaCare) due to their Christian convictions.

Now with a stroke of his pen, President Obama mandated that an employer doing any type of work with the federal government must leave his religious beliefs at the door. Homosexuality trumps religious liberty.



What will be the impact as our religious liberty is further stripped away? And even more importantly, what will be our response? As greater discrimination and even persecution comes, may you and I not bow to Nebuchadnezzar, but stand for what is faithful and true. Do I hear an Amen?

Linda Harvey: Stop Gay Marriage So People Can 'Live Their Own Values'

Mission America’s Linda Harvey called on listeners today to pray against the supposed “assault on morality” by marriage equality proponents in the courts.

“No matter what happens, God is not mocked and same-sex unions will never actually be marriage, but it remains vitally important that such unions not become legal,” she said, warning that gay rights advocates don’t want to “let people live their own values.”

She also promoted a new campaign from the Ohio-based group Citizens for Community Values, which is asking members to pray against a marriage equality lawsuit in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.

• PRAY that by God’s grace, marriages in the church would be strengthened. PRAY for your marriage and those of your friends and family and pray for marriages in the Church. PRAY that we would, as the body of Christ, be ministers of reconciliation, healing, and growth to those that are hurting. PRAY that our marriages would reflect Christ’s relationship with His church and that our marriages would be a testimony to others of His grace and would glorify God.

• PRAY for discernment and sound reasoning for the three judges (Martha Craig Daughtrey, Jeffrey S. Sutton, and Deborah L. Cook) hearing these cases that they might understand the importance and meaning of marriage and be able to see through the arguments for and the implications of redefining marriage.

• PRAY or clarity of thought and persuasive speech for the attorneys defending marriage in order that the arguments against marriage will be refuted, confused thinking will be exposed, and that all the judges’ doubts regarding marriage be removed.

• PRAY for those engaged in all manner of sexual sin that God will deliver them from their sexual bondage and restore purity.

• PRAY for ministers of God’s Word that they would proclaim God’s truth regarding sexuality and marriage with clarity, boldness and grace.

• PRAY for those who are counseling individuals and couples struggling with marital difficulties that they would give Biblical counsel in order that healing and reconciliation would take place.

• PRAY for young couples that are considering marriage or who have just married that they will take seriously their vows made to God and will call on Him whenever they face challenges to their relationship.

Dave Daubenmire: 'A Christian Who Votes For A Democrat Maybe Isn't Really A Christian'

In his most recent video update, “Coach” Dave Daubenmire asks: “Can a Christian vote for a Democrat?”

Unsurprisingly, his answer is no, as Democrats “have become the party of death” thanks to support for legal abortion and the “deathstyle” of homosexuality.

“Did you know that when you support Obamacare you support the medical care of those who are engaged in self-destructive behaviors, including male-on-male sodomy?” he asked.

“Who is the greatest perpetrators of homosexual rights and homosexual marriage?” he said. “You got it. The Democratic party.”

So, he concludes, “a Christian who votes for a democrat maybe isn’t really a Christian.”

We have gotten used to anti-gay political commentators taking the satirical 1987 essay “Gay Revolutionary” as a serious manifesto and the policy platform of the sinister gay agenda. Apparently, satire just isn’t their thing. In a guest column for BarbWire today, Mark Judge offers a similar take on Charles Beaumont’s 1955 short story “The Crooked Man,” in which heterosexuals are closeted and opposite-sex couples have to hide in secret out of fear of harassment and stigmatization. Of course, the BarbWire contributor completely misses the point of the story... MORE

In a blog post yesterday, American Family Association research director Ed Vitigliano reacted to the news that Christian singer Vicky Beeching came out as a lesbian by trying to provide an empathetic explanation of homosexuality, and failing utterly. “I think most men would think that Vicky was a very pretty lady,” he wrote, which “makes the subject of sexual orientation rather difficult to understand at times.” After explaining how he has always liked women, Vitigliano wrote that to gay people, being gay “must have appeared just that natural.”...

In a speech to the Stanford Anscombe Society last month, anti-gay activist Robert Oscar Lopez explained that he would support marriage equality…if it didn’t come with protections for children raised by same-sex parents. “I supported marriage for a long time,” Lopez said, “but the problem is that the people who have supported gay marriage have chosen to yoke gay marriage and gay parenting together.” “That put me in the horrible situation where I have to oppose gay marriage, because it ultimately means that in order to protect the sexual relationship...

On Friday, Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted by a grand jury over his efforts to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign from office following her arrest for drunk driving. Lehmberg is gay and so, naturally, Bryan Fischer used this story to proclaim on his radio program today that all gay people ought to be banned from serving in public office. "My view of public service," Fischer declared, "is that somebody who is engaged in sexually deviant behavior is not qualified to hold public office. That's why if you get a conviction for rape, you can... MORE

This weekend, Linda Harvey welcomed to her radio show Molly Smith, the Cleveland anti-choice activist who’s heading up a new national splinter group that thinks that the major anti-choice groups aren’t extreme enough. One of the issues that separates Smith from the major anti-choice groups is her insistence on linking anti-gay and anti-choice activism, a divide that came to a head when she was rebuked by National Right to Life Committee for attacking anti-choice advocate Sen. Rob Portman when he came out in favor of marriage equality. Smith and Harvey discussed the Gay Games,... MORE

Mission America’s Linda Harvey appeared on “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell” over the weekend, where she warned that LGBT rights are pushing the world into the End Times. After discussing the purported dangers that same-sex marriage presents to children, Harvey said that “we’re heading into the End Times, and it sure looks like we may be, or the end of America—or both.” Harvey also called on cities to ban LGBT pride parades: “We need to go to our city councils and stop these parades. I think they are a blight on the community, they... MORE

Tim Brown of the conservative outlet BarbWire writes today that despite recent setbacks, anti-gay activists will win in the long run simply by having more children and shifting the country to the right by changing its demographics. “[T]heir long-term agenda is toast if people, especially Bible believing Christians, simply woke up and took the command of the Bible seriously when it comes to children,” Brown writes, adding that “the homosexuals have chosen a side in which it is impossible for them to procreate.” Unlike the progressive movement, which Brown believes is...
