Harvey: 'Anti-Child' 'Gay-Stapo' Is Bullying Youth, 'Corrupting Children'

Writing today in BarbWire, Mission America head Linda Harvey claims that LGBT rights groups and “vicious homosexual bloggers” are the real bullies, while Christian students are increasingly the victims of “troubled ‘gay’ adolescents whose destructive actions went unpunished.”

Instead of disciplining these gay bullies, Harvey says, schools are instead embracing bullying prevention programs from the “gay-stapo” who are “corrupting children with misinformation and hyperbole about bullying, all laced with explicit ‘gay’ sexual messages” in their “mandated ‘LGBT’ indoctrination” courses.

“The real tragedy is that these groups in reality exploit vulnerable and fragile kids, all the while espousing great compassion and, disingenuously, ‘tolerance’ as a motive,” she writes. “And let’s just be frank: there’s one type of bully in the current climate almost never held accountable: the verbally combative homosexual, lesbian or cross-dresser who taunts and insults others.”

Harvey says anti-bullying efforts are part of the left’s “war” on religion: “But if anyone thinks these desperately discontented people will stop their assault at Christians, think again. First, they came for the Christians and the children….”

The Human Rights Campaign now says RFRA bills are a “license to discriminate.” That’s their take on the Constitutional guarantee of religious freedom for millions of Americans.

It’s essentially a declaration of war.

First Amendment rights shouldn’t be controversial. What’s astounding is the notion that “gay” behavior must be honored by force if necessary, even as marriage.

Or as respectable identities for children. But “anti-bullying” policies are now perceived as essential in public schools nationwide and are often a cover for mandated “LGBT” indoctrination and suppression of any objections.



Activists both inside and outside America’s schools are pushing kids toward homosexuality and gender change while demonizing conservative values that would steer them elsewhere. The teacher’s unions are on board, and the gay-stapo hopes no concerned parent or astute student recognizes that hand grenades are being thrown into the school environment. Critics of current religious freedom bills might want to take a look at the behavior of activists at the schoolhouse before they dismiss those measures as “unnecessary.”



Using disruptive, anti-child advocacy, the Human Rights Campaign (promoters of the grade school gender confusion program, “Welcoming Schools”) and GLSEN (sponsor of the victim-posturing “Day of Silence,” held in April in public schools) are busy corrupting children with misinformation and hyperbole about bullying, all laced with explicit “gay” sexual messages.



The real tragedy is that these groups in reality exploit vulnerable and fragile kids, all the while espousing great compassion and, disingenuously, “tolerance” as a motive. And let’s just be frank: there’s one type of bully in the current climate almost never held accountable: the verbally combative homosexual, lesbian or cross-dresser who taunts and insults others. In the adult world, this is personified by vicious homosexual bloggers who spread lies, distortions, and have called me and others vulgarities I’d never attribute to my worst enemy, but to them, it’s their daily bread. How these people have gotten any traction is beyond unbelievable. They’d never last two weeks in the corporate environment.

Then there are students who fall into this category. I know of several situations where life was made a living hell for peers by troubled “gay” adolescents whose destructive actions went unpunished.



But if anyone thinks these desperately discontented people will stop their assault at Christians, think again. First, they came for the Christians and the children…

Pat Robertson Recalls The Days When Gays Were Stoned To Death, Blames Satan For Gay Rights

Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson said that Satan is behind homosexuality and that Jesus wouldn’t have served gay couples since they would have been stoned to death.

Robertson made the remarks following a report on a Colorado baker who was sued for refusing to serve a same-sex couple and the controversy over Arizona’s so-called “religious freedom” bill. The segment included interviews with the baker, his attorney, a sympathetic customer and three conservative activists. It didn’t feature any interviews with people defending the gay customers.

“I think you got to remember from the Bible, if you look carefully at the Bible what would have happened in Jesus’ time if two men decided they wanted to cohabit together, they would have been stoned to death,” Robertson said. “So Jesus would not have baked them a wedding cake nor would he have made them a bed to sleep in because they wouldn’t have been there. But we don’t have that in this country here so that’s the way it is.” (Robertson’s claim that Jesus would never have encountered a same-sex couple is a matter of debate.)

Robertson added: “Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have to recognize what I said a few years ago, at that point homosexual marriage was condemned, homosexuality itself was considered a pathology and now those that are practicing that activity have turned and become the oppressors of those who hold deeply-held religious points of view, the tables have turned.”

“What is it about gays? What is it about abortion? Have you ever thought why they’re on the forefront right now? Both of them deny the reproduction of human species,” Robertson said, adding that homosexuality is “a meaningless exercise because it doesn’t go anywhere.”

“The Devil is trying to say, ‘I’m going to destroy your progeny any way I can. If you will kill your babies, that’s fine, I’m with you; if you will deny the chance of having babies, that’s fine too; but I want to destroy your opportunities to reproduce,’” he said. “It’s a very serious thing and we’re not talking about it, and we need to as a society, we have to realize where the attack is coming because it is definitely an attack.”

Co-host Wendy Griffith agreed: “The Devil wants to steal, kill and destroy. Well said Pat.”

Barber: Satan 'The Father Of Lies' Behind Gay Rights; World Vision Took Mark Of The Beast

Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber is once again maintaining that Satan is driving the gay rights movement, telling American Family Association head Tim Wildmon today that “the Father of Lies” is the reason Christians are increasingly accepting of gay people.

“They’re under deception,” he said.

Barber told Wildmon that unlike World Vision, the Christian charitable organization that announced yesterday that it would recognize married gay employees, he is willing to fight gay rights to the death: “I hope I’m the guy that runs up to the stake and kisses it before they burn me alive on it.”

Barber also suggested that World Vision took the Mark of the Beast, while Wildmon encouraged people to boycott World Vision even if they are currently sponsoring a child through the organization.

The Liberty Counsel added that World Vision employees “will have to answer to God for this.”

Bill Donohue Thinks His 'Straight Is Great' Contingent Would Have 'Overwhelmed' Pride Parade

The day before Catholic League head and anti-gay activist Bill Donohue announced that he wouldn’t participate in the NYC Pride Parade even though organizers accepted his application to lead a “Straight Is Great” parade contingent, Donohue told conservative talk show host Steve Malzberg that the parade organizers are maneuvering to keep him out of the parade because they are afraid his “Straight Is Great” message will catch on and flood the parade: “They know what they’re opening the door to: what if instead of getting 100 people, what if I get 3,000 people? What if we begin to overwhelm their parade and vetoes their message?”

Donohue said that he withdrew from the parade because he didn’t want to attend required training sessions for all group leaders.

“Quite frankly, as a straight guy, I don’t go to gay training sessions,” Donohue said. “I think I’m pretty much an untrainable guy when it comes to this thing.”

For the record, those “gay training sessions” that NYC Pride convenes aren’t quite as exciting as they sound: “We hold March information and safety sessions, referred to as group leader trainings, so our participants are fully aware of rules and procedures come event day. These trainings address line-up times, check-in locations, our moment of silence, dispersal activity, NYPD safety policies, attire and vehicle/sound permits. It is imperative group leaders know this information.”

Franklin Graham Blasts 'Anti-Christ' Obama Administration, 'Ungodly' World Vision For Accepting Gays

Franklin Graham, who warned last week that God will punish America for the Obama administration’s support for gay rights, appeared on Washington Watch yesterday, where he told host Tony Perkins that the Obama administration is behind “a move to get rid of the chaplains in our country and to completely secularize our military.”

Graham continued: “They are hostile to Christians and a lot of this is coming from this administration and it is being pushed by people within the White House, and when I say White House I’m not saying the president because I’m not sure how much of this he’s aware of, but it’s people who work for him that have power that are sitting in offices and they are hostile to Christ, they are anti-Christ in what they say and what they do and they are pushing this agenda into the military and it’s scary.”

He added that God will punish America because “as a result of spending billions on education we have taught our young people not to believe in God and now to begin to accept standards that are contrary to God’s laws and contrary to His teaching.” “

We as a people, as a nation, our politicians, one by one are turning their backs on God and we as a nation will pay for this, I believe God will judge this nation for our refusal to obey His word,” he said.

Graham also criticized World Vision, the Christian charity that recently announced it will recognize its gay employees’ marriages, and joined with Perkins in likening gays to people in adulterous and polygamous relationships.

“It’s obvious World Vision does not believe the Bible,” Graham said. “I’m sickened over it…. I’m just heartbroken and I’m sickened that World Vision has taken this ungodly position.”

Sandy Rios Says Her Critics Are 'Enemies Of God'

Yesterday, American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios – known for her extreme and conspiratorial anti-gay comments – said that anybody who criticizes her is really attacking God.

She added that those who monitor her show and criticize her remarks will be condemned by God, a claim she previously made when speaking about LGBT rights advocates.

Don’t you guys understand – those of you listening, who are listening to me because you think you’re my enemy – you’re really an enemy of God? Don’t you understand who you’re up against? You think you are actually going to hurt my feelings by those comments? You’re not hurting my feelings. You make me worry about you because you don’t understand who God is and you don’t understand His righteousness and you don’t understand that you’re condemning yourselves with that stuff. So I worry for you, I don’t worry for me, I’m not afraid of death.

Gay Tea Party Activist: Same-Sex Marriage Is 'About Money' And 'Not Humane' To Children

Doug Mainwaring, an openly gay Tea Party activist who is a favorite among Religious Right activists for his denunciations of marriage equality, appeared yesterday on The Janet Mefferd Show to warn that families led by same-sex couples are “not humane” to children, saying that he got back together with his ex-wife even though he is gay over fears for his kids.

“To be dismissive of half the human race because of a little sexual predilection isn’t right,” he said.

He also said that the pharmaceutical and medical industries are “going to be very supportive” of marriage equality laws in order create a “huge revenue stream” of same-sex couples looking to have children: “Really it’s about money when you come down to it.”

The National Capital Tea Party Patriots leader added that progressives are promoting marriage equality in order to “water down the influence of faith” and “weaken biological family ties,” allowing them to grow the size of government.

“If they can get rid of those two things that are such a strong buffer between each individual and the government,” he argued, “then the government is eventually is going to be able to have its way with them.”

Mainwaring may have wanted to listen to the next hour of Mefferd’s show where she said during a discussion of World Vision’s decision to recognize its gay employees’ marriages that “unrepentant homosexuals” can’t go to Heaven.

BarbWire: 'Gay-KK' Will 'Lynch' Christians

BarbWire editor Jeff Allen keeps trying to top his own rabidly anti-gay columns, warning previously that “homo-maniacal” “queer terrorists” are engineering an anti-Christian Holocaust.

Now today, Allen is predicting that the “Gay-KK” will “lynch” Christians and put them in the “gallows.”

Are you ready for a lynching? Well, ready or not, guess who’s been selected to take the long walk to the gallows?



Hey, it is what it is. As a matter of fact, it’s getting harder every day to tell our modern homo-fascists from the Nazis of the 1930s and 40s. “Gay”-stapo or Gestapo, could somebody please tell me the difference?



In the meantime, the Gay-KK can keep their noose “on ice.”

Allen adds in a separate column that gay people operate as a “monolithic monster” and a “totalitarian regime” seeking to outlaw Christianity and overturn the Constitution.

As I share a few examples of the deep-seated scheming of the homo-suppressionists, one of the first reactions will invariably be, “Not all homosexuals are like this!” Then, it’s about high time for the liberty-lovers in the homosexual ranks to start loudly condemning the “gay” onslaught against free speech, conscience rights and religious expression (just to name a few). Because one thing is for sure, those who “are like this” haven’t held back their aggression one bit; they have nearly drowned out all rational, civil debate. In fact, if they had their way, Christianity would be a criminal act or certainly banished from “polite society.” So, the deafening silence of these mysteriously absent “reasonable” homosexuals is starting to make me think that they actually operate more as a monolithic monster.

The homosexual effort to silence all voices of dissent seems today like some sort of evil Energizer Bunny. They never give it a rest. The homo-maniacal foot soldiers are constantly on the march/watch for the next perceived “violation” of the fascist “gay” dogma. Their modus operandi sounds eerily similar to totalitarian regimes which recruit family members to spy on one another. Step out of line, and who knows what will happen.



This battle for truth and freedom is not for the faint of heart, but we must oppose them now before it’s too late. Or the U.S. Constitution will become nothing more than a museum piece in memorial to a period long past. Liberty will only be a faint memory of a bygone era, unless we draw a line and stand our ground.

Anti-Gay Activists Blast World Vision For Welcoming Married Gay Christians

Yesterday, Richard Stearns, the president of the American branch of the Christian charity World Vision, announced that the board had voted to change its policy and would now permit legally married gay Christians to work for the organization.

Insisting that this was just a "very narrow policy change," Stearns took great pains to make the case that this should not be seen as any sort of "compromise" on the issue of gay marriage:

"Changing the employee conduct policy to allow someone in a same-sex marriage who is a professed believer in Jesus Christ to work for us makes our policy more consistent with our practice on other divisive issues," he said. "It also allows us to treat all of our employees the same way: abstinence outside of marriage, and fidelity within marriage."

Stearns took pains to emphasize what World Vision is not communicating by the policy change.

"It's easy to read a lot more into this decision than is really there," he said. "This is not an endorsement of same-sex marriage. We have decided we are not going to get into that debate. Nor is this a rejection of traditional marriage, which we affirm and support."

"We're not caving to some kind of pressure. We're not on some slippery slope. There is no lawsuit threatening us. There is no employee group lobbying us," said Stearns. "This is not us compromising. It is us deferring to the authority of churches and denominations on theological issues. We're an operational arm of the global church, we're not a theological arm of the church.

"This is simply a decision about whether or not you are eligible for employment at World Vision U.S. based on this single issue, and nothing more."

Needless to say, anti-gay activists are not buying World Vision's defense and have wasted no time in savaging the decision and accusing the organization of "apostasy."

Franklin Graham:

Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, issued a scathing rebuke of World Vision, during an appearance the Family Research Council’s Washington Watch radio program.

“It’s obvious World Vision doesn’t believe in the Bible,” said Graham. “I am sickened and heartbroken.”

...

"I was shocked today to hear of World Vision’s decision to hire employees in same-sex marriages. The Bible is clear that marriage is between a man and a woman. My dear friend, Bob Pierce, the founder of World Vision and Samaritan’s Purse, would be heartbroken. He was an evangelist who believed in the inspired Word of God. World Vision maintains that their decision is based on unifying the church – which I find offensive – as if supporting sin and sinful behavior can unite the church. From the Old Testament to the New Testament, the Scriptures consistently teach that marriage is between a man and woman and any other marriage relationship is sin.”

Michael Brown:

This is a betrayal of the gospel, a betrayal of the Lord, a betrayal of the family, and a betrayal of the countless thousands of Christians who have put their trust in World Vision as a legitimate Christian organization.

In no way does it contribute to “building a better world for children” – one of the fundamental goals of World Vision. In fact, it does the opposite.

...

[I]f claiming that two men can “marry” and their sexual acts be holy in God’s sight is not “wavering,” then words have no meaning.

...

Let it be stated plainly to the leadership and board of directors of World Vision U.S.: The Lord Jesus is no longer central in the corporate life of your organization. You have denied his lordship by your actions.

Albert Mohler:

[I]t is ridiculous to argue that World Vision is not taking sides on the issue. The objective fact is that World Vision will now employ openly-gay employees involved in openly homosexual relationships. There is no rational sense in claiming that this represents neutrality.

...

The worst aspect of the World Vision U.S. policy shift is the fact that it will mislead the world about the reality of sin and the urgent need of salvation. Willingly recognizing same-sex marriage and validating openly homosexual employees in their homosexuality is a grave and tragic act that confirms sinners in their sin — and that is an act that violates the gospel of Christ.

...

The shift announced yesterday by World Vision points to disaster. We can only pray that there is yet time for World Vision to rethink this matter, correct their course, stand without compromise on the authority of Scripture, and point the way for evangelical Christians to follow once again.

Matt Barber:

“Just because you say you’re not an official wing of the church or that you’re a para-Christian organization does not release you from the command to adhere to biblical truth and biblical reality as it pertains to sexual morality,” he maintains. “So that is a cop-out – and anyone with a clear understanding of scripture can recognize it as such.”

The Christian columnist believes anyone who claims to be Christian is expected to follow God’s Word, not the world. World Vision, he says, has made it clear where its loyalties lie.

“This very dramatic, counter-biblical, apostate move by World Vision shows where they stand,” he concludes. “They have destroyed their credibility as a Christian organization with one fell swoop – and it’s heart-wrenching.”

Bryan Fischer:

When God has spoken as clearly and as repeatedly as he has on the subject of marriage and homosexuality, it is a waste of breath to ask him if he's changed his mind.

World Vision long ago abandoned evangelism, as a condition of accepting money from the federal government. Now they have abandoned morality as well. Is there now anything, anything at all, that makes this an organization worthy of evangelical support?

World Vision's experience is a sobering reminder that once you abandon God at one point (evangelism) eventually it is inevitable that you will abandon him on other points (sexual morality). One compromise ineluctably leads to another until all is gone.

Christianity identifies greed as a form of idolatry, an expression of the worship of the false god Mammon. Greed, quite simply, is doing something you should not do for the sake of money.

Peter LaBarbera:

World Vision’s sellout is part of a disturbing trend in evangelicalism to capitulate in the Culture War over homosexuality–while the pro-LGBT lobby only ramps up its advocacy of sexually immoral laws and corporate policies.

...

Lastly, World Vision does a great spiritual disservice to its “gay married” employees. By implying that unrepentant, practicing homosexuals can be faithful servants of Jesus Christ while living openly in grave sexual sin and mocking true marriage, WV becomes an impediment to their repentance before God. Salvation requires humbly acknowledging and turning away from sin, just as genuine marriage requires two people of the opposite sex joining to produce a natural family.

CWA: Youth Support For Gay Rights Shows Their 'Ignorance'

Janice Shaw Crouse of Concerned Women for America knows the real reason why young voters are more likely to favor marriage equality and vote for Democratic candidates like President Obama, and it’s apparently because they’re just not smart enough to know better.

Crouse writes today in the Christian Post that young adults are “without a solid foundation” and “fall prey to the fads and changing winds of cultural trends,” transforming American youth into “a reliably leftist demographic.”

“They are also one of the best-educated generations in American history – a finding that many consider highly questionable, given their appalling ignorance both of history and contemporary events,” Crouse writes, lamenting that “this rootless generation, with little grounding in historical knowledge or moral commitments, is ripe for the demagoguery of community organizers and activists pushing special agendas.”

She adds that young voters don’t realize that gay rights are harmful to freedom, arguing that marriage equality laws “censure those whose religious beliefs condemn this unfortunate change in the definition of marriage. Marijuana legalization, the same. Life without boundaries for them, but not for the rest of us.”

According to exit polling data, in both the 2008 and 2012 elections, Millennials (young adults 18 to 33) were a reliably leftist demographic, both in their voting and their views. Now, it appears that – even though they remain decidedly liberal on political and social issues – this influential group of Americans is up for grabs in the 2014 and 2016 elections. That is to say that no specific politician or ideology can count on their support.



One of the troubling findings in the survey is that “about three-in-ten (29%) say they are not affiliated with any religion.” Coupled with their lack of political affiliation, this rootless generation, with little grounding in historical knowledge or moral commitments, is ripe for the demagoguery of community organizers and activists pushing special agendas. For example, Millennials see no inconsistency in adamantly advocating their own freedom to express their position and, at the same time, pushing for activist government policies to promote same-sex marriage and censure those whose religious beliefs condemn this unfortunate change in the definition of marriage. Marijuana legalization, the same. Life without boundaries for them, but not for the rest of us.

… Without a solid foundation – a worldview of their own – Millennials fall prey to the fads and changing winds of cultural trends. Only one-quarter (26%) of Millennials are married (in contrast to other generations when at their age – Gen X 36%, Baby Boomers 48%, Silent Generation 65%). Obviously, the lack of marriage does not mean a lack of sexual activity; cohabitation and random hook-ups are substitutes for marriage, with predictably bad measurable outcomes for both men and women.

In spite of their support for big government, liberal social views, lack of patriotism, general optimism, and personal support for President Obama (though that is declining), Millennials, like the three generations preceding them, disapprove of single parenting and believe that it is bad for society.

Pew explains some of the Millennial views by their racial diversity: “About four-in-ten members of the millennial generation are non-white – a much larger percentage than in older age groups.” They are also one of the best-educated generations in American history – a finding that many consider highly questionable, given their appalling ignorance both of history and contemporary events.

CBN Denounces Putin's Suppression Of Religious Freedom But Joins Anti-Gay Kremlin Summit

A top official with Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network is helping the far-right World Congress of Families (WCF) organize a summit with other anti-gay activists at the Kremlin in September, which the WCF is framing as a show of support for Vladimir Putin’s government and his recent crackdown on gay rights.

Justin Murff, the Grants & Foundations Manager for CBN International, is slated to speak at the first day of the pro-Putin gathering alongside Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage, Austin Ruse of the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute, Jim Daly of Focus on the Family and Allan Sears of Alliance Defending Freedom, and is on a panel the second day with Focus on the Family official Tom Minnery.

Other panels at the Kremlin conference include “Ex-Gay Movement,” “Case Studies from the Marriage Fight,” “Dangers of Sex Education” and “Roots of Sexual Revolution.” While many American Religious Right pastors, leaders and activists have become cheerleaders for Putin’s authoritarian government, CBN’s involvement in the Kremlin gathering is somewhat surprising because today the 700 Club aired a report from CBN correspondent Paul Strand about how Putin is rolling back the freedom of religion, particularly trampling on the rights of evangelicals and other Christians who aren’t members of the Russian Orthodox Church.

In 2011, CBN reporter George Thomas similarly reported that Baptists and Pentecostals are facing growing threats under Putin’s leadership.

CBN’s involvement in the WCF summit highlights the fact that other Religious Right groups are looking the other way and deliberately ignoring the threats to religious freedom in Russia in order to salute the country’s anti-gay policies.

Sandy Rios Wants 'Disordered' Gays And 'Trannies' Banned From The Military

American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios said yesterday that she wants to restore the ban on gays in the military because gay people are “disordered” and won’t be able to “provide strong defense for our nation.”

Rios, who is also the AFA’s governmental affairs director, was reacting to a Palm Center study that calls for an end to the military’s prohibition on transgender service members, which led her to a long rant that serves as a great example of heterosexual privilege.

Have we been so lulled into silliness and foolishness that we think that transgendered soldiers who are confused about their sexuality who want to undergo gender reassignment, homosexual soldiers who are constantly thinking about their sexuality -- and I say that with authority, having interviewed so many ex-gays and talked about this for years, there is an obsession -- their identity, they think, is their sexuality.

How many of you who are heterosexual would first of all say to someone in describing yourself, ‘I’m heterosexual, I have sex with the opposite sex’? You have much more of an identity than that, don’t you? Well for homosexuals, they claim that as an identity, it’s all about sex, so that is a disorder in itself. You can write me, I realize that’s angering words but that is a disorder because that’s not who you are, you are much more than that. It is a disorder, it is disordered thinking and if we think that soldiers that are obsessed with these issues are going to provide strong defense for our nation, I think we are foolishly denying whatever is true.

Previously, Rios claimed that the “homosexual takeover of so much of our military ” has eviscerated military readiness and effectiveness.

Rios also criticized former Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, who chaired the Palm Center study, for writing a four-paragraph foreword for the book Harmful To Minors, in which she endorsed sexual education for minors in order to combat misinformation and STIs.

Rios said Elders has spent her career “calling for children to be sexually active” and lamented that she is “now urging for trannies to be allowed in the military.”

Bryan Fischer Urges Gay People To Remove Satanic Force In Their Brain That Makes Them Gay

Just as Bryan Fischer previously explained that transgender people can cure themselves through prayer, on today’s Focal Point the American Family Association spokesman charged that gay people can become straight if they simply dismantle Satan’s gay “stronghold” in their brain.

“A lot of homosexuals think they were born that way because they’ve got a stronghold in their mind, the world and the flesh and the Devil has gotten this stronghold, this error that’s seeped into their brains,” Fischer said. “And it’s a stronghold, it’s a fortress, it is so powerfully reinforced that people think they’ve always been this way and there’s not anything they can do about it and so they don’t even make the effort. Now that’s not to say it’s easy, but it can be done.”

Perhaps Dr. Jerry Mungadze can help Fischer implement his method of “ex-gay” therapy.

Gay Tea Party Activist Warns 'Pagan' Marriage Equality Will Destroy Civilization

Doug Mainwaring has emerged as a favorite Religious Right spokesman against marriage equality since he is not only a Tea Party leader but also openly gay.

Writing today in the right-wing American Thinker, Mainwaring alleges that statements by religious figures such as Pope Francis that appear supportive of gay rights “have poisoned faith” with “regressive, pagan ideologies.”

According to Mainwaring, marriage equality is a plot by “statists” who want to make sure that the “institution of marriage is obliterated from human civilization, in which case, we will no longer actually have a civilization.”

He adds that the main reason people increasingly favor marriage equality is because “a vast swath of the population just sick and tired of hearing about gays in the news day after day for the last few years” and “sick and tired of irrational accusations of bigotry and homophobia.”

In January Pope Francis recounted how a little girl in Buenos Aires told her teacher that she was sad because "my mother's girlfriend doesn't like me." In response, he said:

"The situation in which we live now provides us with new challenges which sometimes are difficult for us to understand," the Pope told leaders of religious orders, adding that the church "must be careful not to administer a vaccine against faith to them."

Yet how much more have these surprise validators, operating within the Church's warm embrace, vaccinated others against faith? Perhaps "vaccine" is too mild a term. Whether with good intentions or selfish ones, they have administered venom. They haven't vaccinated against faith: They have poisoned faith with their toxic regressive, pagan ideologies.



The most recent Pew Poll found that public acceptance of same sex marriage is now up to 54%. Does this really reflect an enthusiastic embrace of the notion of same sex marriage? -- Or -- Is a vast swath of the population just sick and tired of hearing about gays in the news day after day for the last few years?

Maybe they're also sick and tired of irrational accusations of bigotry and homophobia every time they try to enter into a reasoned discussion about same sex marriage. Many who have been shut down for trying to engage in intellectually honest conversation, have concluded, "Why bother? Just let them have what they want. Maybe then they'll fade away."

Fade away? Don't count on it. There is never an end to progressive ideology. Statists never have enough power and control. This will never end until the very institution of marriage is obliterated from human civilization, in which case, we will no longer actually have a civilization.

I'm gay and I oppose same sex marriage because it is not marriage. It is something else. I, too, am tired of being labeled a "self loathing [sic] gay" and a "hater." I am not. But I refuse to be silenced by those who seek to manipulate and silence rather than enter into rational discussion.



If you love humanity, and harbor no bigotry, but object to the demand to call two men or two women, married: "It is up to you, fearless reader, to act."

Sally Kern Thinks People Who Disagree With Her That Homosexuality Is A 'Bigger Threat Than Terrorism' Are The Real Haters

In a radio show posted online on Monday, Oklahoma GOP state representative Sally Kern told In The Market host Janet Parshall that she stands by her repeated claims that homosexuality is “more dangerous” than terrorist attacks because gay rights will destroy America, a claim she outlines in her book The Stoning of Sally Kern.

Kern told Parshall that she was outraged that people wanted to make her seem like an “idiot” for simply stating that “the homosexual agenda is a bigger threat than terrorism.”

“I was using what I use as a teacher, you know when you’re teaching high school students you try to find something they can relate to, to share a concept with, so they can grasp that concept better,” Kern continued. “So everybody understands terrorism destroys people’s lives, it destroys property. All I meant was, all I was saying was the homosexual agenda is destroying people’s lives. More people have died from AIDS than have died from a terrorist attack here in America. It’s destroying the moral fiber of our nation, that’s all I meant.”

She lamented that gay rights advocates “try to ridicule you and make you feel like an idiot so that you’ll be intimidated and not speak out anymore.”

In fact, she said her detractors are actually “stoning” God himself: “It just broke my heart because so often what they were doing, they weren’t just stoning me, they were stoning and desecrating the God that I love.”

“There was just so much hate, they accuse me of being hateful, and I never once said anything hateful,” Kern said. “Such hate expressed against the Lord and against his word and then the way they, I mean, these people, I believe these people, I believe scripture teaches this, they’re deceived and to me the real hate is from those people who say ‘you’re born this way and you can’t change, deal with it.’”

Peter LaBarbera Praises Uganda, Colonial Era Anti-Gay Laws

On The Janet Mefferd Show yesterday, Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality praised “countries like Uganda and Jamaica” for refusing to “follow the American path” and passing draconian anti-gay laws. He warned that the decriminalization of homosexuality opens a “Pandora’s box” and countries like Uganda “don’t want to learn this from America, we’ve become a very decadent nation and they want to preserve Judeo-Christian morals.”

LaBarbera also waxed nostalgic for the good ol’ days when homosexuality was a crime in the US — falsely claiming that gay people never went to jail — and also hailed anti-gay laws in the colonial era, when homosexuality was punishable by death.

Mefferd defended Uganda’s government from criticism by Secretary of State John Kerry, attacking him for trying to “strong-arm nations across the world on the LGBT issue.”

“These people are a joke,” she said.

Westboro Baptist Church Founder Fred Phelps Is Dead

Notorious anti-gay activist Fred Phelps has died, according to news reports.

Fred Phelps was the founder and patriarch of Westboro Baptist Church, which he and his family members used as a base for attention-grabbing protests at funerals of people who had died from AIDS, at gay-rights rallies and marches, at churches he deemed insufficiently anti-gay, and later at the funerals of American soldiers (based on the “logic” that America itself is vile and hated by God for its growing acceptance of LGBT people).

It is hard to know how much pain Phelps caused individual LGBT people and their families, particularly young people struggling with their sexuality and/or faith, with his denunciations.  But he certainly failed in his mission to frighten or harass Americans away from support for equality. In fact he may have accelerated the trend by putting such an unappealing face on anti-gay bigotry that many American Christians wanted nothing to do with him.

Phelps did allow other anti-gay leaders to posture that he was the face of hatred, not them. But the substance of their message to gay people is similar: repent or be damned – it’s just that Phelps framed it as “God hates fags” while people like Bryan Fischer say God loves them and wants them to abandon their demonic lifestyle. They may have disagreed on rhetorical strategy, but they shared their hostility to an America in which LGBT people are treated equally under the law.  In the end, other anti-gay religious leaders, even ones who distanced themselves from Phelps’s rhetoric, were tainted by him.

The Phelps family has inspired some truly creative activism by pro-equality activists, who used their appearances to raise funds for progressive organizations, and who created visually striking walls of “angels” to keep Phelps family protesters out of view of grieving family members.

Fred Phelps’s decision to protest military funerals may have accomplished the most in terms of helping more Americans view anti-gay bigotry as broadly un-American. He may have left exactly the legacy he didn’t want.

AFA's One Million Moms Joins Graham Cracker Boycott

The American Family Association subsidiary One Million Moms is joining calls from fellow anti-gay activists to boycott Honey Maid graham crackers over an ad that includes a same-sex couple.

The group is asking members to email Honey Maid to tell the company that they were “highly offended” by its “disrespect of millions of American families by supporting the homosexual agenda.”

In a statement, the group said Honey Maid — and its parent company Nabisco — “should be ashamed of themselves” for their “attempt to normalize sin” by “pushing the LGBT agenda.”

Nabisco should be ashamed of themselves for their latest Honey Maid and Teddy Graham cracker commercial where they attempt to normalize sin. Right away it shows two men with a baby, followed by other families, and ends with different families pictured including the one with two dads. This commercial not only promotes homosexuality, but then calls the scene in the advertisement wholesome. The ad states, "Everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family. This is wholesome."

One Million Moms stands up for Biblical truth which is very clear in Romans 1:26-27 about this particular type of sexual perversion.

Honey Maid is also using the hashtag #thisiswholesome. There is concern about the way this ad is pushing the LGBT agenda, but an even greater concern is the way that they are changing the meaning of the word "wholesome."

This is truly sad. If this is what Honey Maid thinks is wholesome, then my family will no longer purchase Honey Maid or Nabisco products.

Catholic League's Bill Donohue Wants To Lead 'Straight Is Great' Contingent At NYC Pride Parade

Bill Donohue of the Catholic League announced today that the controversy over the New York St. Patrick’s Day parade’s ban on LGBT groups has inspired him to apply to march at the New York pride parade with a “Straight Is Great” banner.

Donohue told conservative talk show host Steve Malzberg that if his application is approved he will “bring a big wedding cake” to the pride parade, in what he seems to think would be a slight to LGBT people.

Donohue told Malzberg that he’s had his “last pint” of Guinness after the beer company dropped its sponsorship of the St. Patrick’s Day parade over its anti-gay policy, adding that he will burn his Guinness cap. “I’m going to go after Guinness big time, nonstop, relentlessly,” Donohue said, arguing that the company is “trying to stick it to Roman Catholics.”

Fischer: The Role Of Government Is 'To Only Approve That Which God Approves'

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer made the case that nothing that the Bible considers to be sinful can ever be tolerated or made legal by the government because anyone who holds public office is a "minister of God" with "a responsibility to use that authority in a manner that is consistent with the truth of God."

As such, any law that gives any sort of protection or equality to gays is a violation of that responsibility because, in granting such rights, elected officials are abusing their positions in order "to approve something that God criticizes, to approve something that God condemns."

Therefore, Fischer said, gays have no right to ever expect equal treatment from the government because "the responsibility of those in civil authority is to only approve that which God approves and to stand against that which He rejects":

Anne Graham Lotz, the End Times preacher and daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, joined Jan Markell on her radio show “Understanding the Times” last week to discuss her claims that the Last Days have arrived. Luckily for us, there is still time to save humanity because “that’s why God sends us wake up calls.” According to Lotz, God “allows the terrorists to strike or a tornado to rip through our city” to get our attention, “because, for whatever reason, we don’t seem to give him our attention until we’re desperate.

Richard Land, the former head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s political arm, appeared on “Sandy Rios In The Morning” this week to discuss growing support for gay rights and acceptance of homosexuality in the U.S. Land blamed such trends on “a broad cultural assault on biblical values through the media, through entertainment [and] through MTV,” specifically calling out the “gay and lesbian, bisexual community” for its “sustained campaign” to “propagandize” Americans. “These people have gone after the icons in our...

During his remarks at the Pentagon’s celebration of LGBT Pride Month on Tuesday, Brig. Gen. Randy S. Taylor, who has served in the Army for 27 years, introduced his husband to attendees. Predictably, Taylor’s remarks and other speeches by LGBT service members did not go over well with the far-right, including talk show host Michael Savage, who on Tuesday blasted the Pride event and even managed to draw a connection to ISIS. “So this is the world we’re living in,” Savage sighed. “This is what Obama has done to America, this is what he has done to the...

Promise Keepers, a Christian “men’s ministry” founded by former Colorado football coach Bill McCartney, is celebrating its 25th year. The group’s current militarized language and imagery matches the increasingly violent rhetoric of resistance and revolution from the far right. It may also reflect the background of current PK President Dr. Raleigh Washington, described as a “20-year U.S. Army veteran.” The group, which filled stadiums and attracted criticism for its patriarchal message in its 1990s heyday, has a smaller profile today. This year it is... MORE

Virulently anti-gay activist Scott Lively has long been a vocal supporter of Vladimir Putin's crackdown on gay rights, declaring that passage of Russia's anti-gay legislation was "one of the proudest achievements of my career" and even promising to run for Congress on a platform rooted in defending and supporting Russia's anti-gay crackdown. So we were not surprised to see that Lively is out with a new piece claiming that President Obama "orchestrated the Ukraine coup" in an effort to undermine Putin's stand against the "international LGBT political...

Yesterday on the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program, Franklin Graham urged listeners to follow him in boycotting businesses he sees as too LGBT-friendly. He told guest-host Craig James, an FRC official, that the U.S. has “turned our back as a nation on God” and no longer “listens to the religious leaders of this country.” Graham urged people to “love” their gay and lesbian neighbors “enough to warn them” that they will “spend eternity in Hell” since “God has no hope but to judge them”...

Last week, after Caitlyn Jenner introduced herself on the cover of Vanity Fair, prominent Iowa talk radio host Steve Deace told Republican candidates that if they wouldn’t speak out against Jenner’s transition, “you might as well just forfeit the 2016 election now.” When CNN’s Dana Bash asked Sen. Lindsey Graham about Deace’s comments in an interview over the weekend, he responded that while he’s “a pro-life, traditional marriage kind of guy,” Jenner is “welcome in my party.” He then addressed Deace directly: “Here'...
