Boykin: "Everywhere I Go" People Ask "When Do We Take Up Arms" Against Obama

Last week, Glenn Beck invited Jerry Boykin onto his program to give his "expert" opinion on the uprising in Egypt and he is also listed among the invited speakers to the next Values Voter Summit:

So now might be a good time to repost this video he produced for Rick Joyner's Morningstar Ministries in which explained that President Obama is a Marxist who intends to create an army of Brownshirts loyal only to him though Health Care Reform legislation:

When he is not speaking to Beck or hobnobbing with Republican leaders at the Values Voter Summit, Boykin is working hand-in-hand with Joyner, preaching at this services, and sitting on the board of his Oak Initiative along with the likes of Janet Porter, Lou Sheldon, and Cindy Jacobs.

Joyner is a self-described prophet who is worried that President Obama might just be a treasonous Muslim and who roots his activism in dreams and visions about the imminent destruction of America:

For his part, Boykin delivers sermons to Joyner's follower with titles like "The Church Must Rise Up" in which he reports that everywhere he goes, people come up and ask him "when do we take up arms" against the Obama administration, which Boykin opposes because we are really involved in a spiritual battle:

Right Wing Leftovers

  • Sen. Jim Webb has announced that he will not seek re-election.
  • Peter LaBarbera launches a boycott against Chili's.
  • Rep. John Boehner will speak at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention.
  • Rep. Allen West has been tapped to deliver the closing speech at CPAC.
  • John Stemberger fights his $10 million lawsuit by claiming the suit is the "latest weapon of mass destruction sought out by Islamic extremists."
  • Bryan Fischer wonders if Medal of Honor winner Salvatore Giunta is leaving the military because of the repeal of DADT.
  • Speaking of Fischer, he had Lila Rose on his radio program today.  I refuse to watch it.

Focus on the Family's Anti-Gay, Anti-Choice Agenda for Congress Unveiled

CitizenLink, the policy and advocacy arm of Focus on the Family, is calling on members to put pressure on the House GOP to implement their far-right goals. Despite the initial claims of House Republican leaders that they would concentrate their work on economic issues, the GOP leadership has embraced a litany of anti-choice bills along with legislation that aims to block the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and revoke marriage equality in Washington DC.

The group is now demanding Republicans pass harsh anti-choice bills that would cripple women’s health services, and also wants the GOP to rollback the rights of gays and lesbian: asking Republicans to repeal the Hate Crimes Prevention Act, reinstate Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, block the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and protect the unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Tom Minnery, the head of CitizenLink, previously called on the House Oversight Committee led by Darrell Issa (R-CA) to investigate the Department of Justice over their handling of successful challenges to DOMA.

According to CitizenLink’s petition, Republican leaders should:

1.) Eliminate government support and funding of abortion in any federal health care program, particularly the new health care law.

2.) Eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion seller, which received $363 million in government funding during fiscal year 2008.

3.) No new taxes or fees imposed on American families.

4.) Defend the free exercise of religion and speech by rejecting the proposed Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and repealing the Hate Crimes bill passed in 2009.

5.) Support the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and demand that the Obama Administration uphold and defend DOMA.

6.) Reinstate the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy and underlying federal law that affirms homosexuality is incompatible with military service.

  • Ron Paul to tour Iowa with Bob Vander Plaats’s anti-gay group.
  • Even William Kristol is troubled by Beck’s Egypt comments, and Beck hits back.

Right Wing Leftovers

  • Follow this logic: Peter LaBarbera is angry that liberals are attacking Chick-Fil-A while he simultaneously calls for a boycott of Chili's.
  • Rick Santorum does not support Mitch Daniels' call for a "truce."
  • Alveda King will receive the 2011 Cardinal John J. O’Connor Pro-Life Hall of Fame Award.
  • Bryan Fischer says Republicans in the House should refuse to fund implementation of the DADT repeal so as to save soldiers from being "forced to share open-bay showers with leering homosexuals and living quarters with fellow soldiers who may want to jump your bones."
  • Finally, do you want to watch Cindy Jacobs ramble on for ten minutes about the situation in Egypt?  Of course you do.

Right Wing Leftovers

  • Joseph Farah says he "wouldn't vote for Mitt Romney if he were running against Satan himself."
  • Gordon Klingenschmitt says the repeal of DADT will result in a "purge" of Christians from the military.
  • Focus on the Family is not impressed with Barbara Bush's support for marriage equality.
  • FRC 's Robert Morrison says Lila Rose "deserves a Pulitzer Prize."
  • Anti-mosque activist Andy Sullivan opposes the "Ground Zero Mosque" because "according to the IRS, they are a religious 501c3 charity, meaning they cannot have access to federal monies. No religious institution has the right to have access to federal monies."
  • Next, Bill O'Reilly will be asking "magnets, how do they work?"
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says we need to "start dismantling egregiously wrong precedents such as Roe v. Wade and Lawrence v. Texas."

Rick Joyner Has A Dream ... Of America's Destruction

We have mentioned Rick Joyner here a few times before, mainly to point out that he is a member of the Religious Right supergroup known as The Freedom Federation and that several Religious Right leaders -including Janet Porter, Lou Sheldon, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Cindy Jacobs, Lt.Gen. W.G. "Jerry" Boykin - sit on the board his Oak Initiative.  

In fact, it was for the Oak Initiative that Boykin recorded his video explaining how President Obama intended to use health care reform legislation to create his own private army of Brownshirts.

Joyner has been deepening his ties to the Religious Right in recent months, apparently because he recently received a message from God while visiting Moravian Falls, NC - which is reportedly an open portal to Heaven - in the form of a dream revealing that the foundation of America is literally on fire and that only the Word of God could save it from utter destruction:

Joyner went on to explain that the only thing that can save America is for Christians to become more involved in politics and for our political and governmental leaders to start listening to the "prophetic voices" of people like Joyner:

As Navy Chaplain, Klingenschmitt Performed Gay Exorcism on Rape Victim

In our last post, we highlighted a clip from David Pakman's recent interview with Gordon Klingenschmitt in which Klingenschmitt related how he had performed an exorcism on a lesbian soldier when he was a chaplain in the Navy.

It turns out that just last month, Klingenschmitt told the same story to Peter LaBarbera, with the added detail that the woman had come to him for counseling because she had been raped:

LaBarbera: Chaps, you alluded to a story about an exorcism with a woman trapped in lesbianism. Tell us about that.

Klingenschmitt: Yes, well as a Navy Chaplain one of my first counseling assignments walked into my office and sat down with me was a young woman who had been raped. And it was tragic, I mean she was the victim of abuse and was going through a trial process where she was the witness against another sailor, they were both sailors, who was on her ship. But she said privately to me, "Chaplain, it was not consensual sex because I don't even like men, I'm a lesbian. So what should I do?"

And I wept with her and I cried with her and I asked her about her background; turns out she had been abused as a child by some men in her family and I said "let me ask you a question: all these men who abused you, where they full of the Devil or where they full of Jesus Christ?"

And she had to answer "well, of course they're full of the devil." I said that is proof right there, perhaps, that Jesus Christ himself can be the first man that you trust and I suggested we have a wedding ceremony and she got married to Jesus Christ as the first man she could ever trust.

She gave her life to Jesus. She welcomed the Holy Spirit. And I looked into her eyes as she began to weep and I said "you foul spirit of lesbianism, this woman has renounced you, come out of her in Jesus' name" and she began to wrestle with that and suddenly her eyes began to bug out and then she began to weep, and weep, and weep as the Holy Spirit forgave her sins.

She was baptized the next day and then she became one of the best evangelists in our church, started carrying around her Bible telling all of her friends about Jesus and she started dating boys.

Klingenschmitt: DADT Repeal Means Chaplains Can No Longer Perform Gay Exorcisms

Several years ago, Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt got thrown out of the Navy for insubordination and managed to turn it into a career as an anti-gay Religious Right activist.

Yesterday, David Pakman had Klingenschmitt on his program to discuss the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, which Klingenschmitt opposes because military chaplains will no longer be able to perform exorcisms of gay soldiers:

The entire interview is amazing and you really ought to watch it:

Cain Tells Fischer He'll De-Fund Planned Parenthood, Reinstate DADT, and Veto ENDA

The Bryan Fischer primary continues.

Last week, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty sat down with Bryan Fischer, one of the Religious Right's biggest bigots, and pledged that he would reinstate Don't Ask, Don't Tell if elected president.

Yesterday, Herman Cain, who also hosts a radio program for AFA, appeared on Fischer's radio program and likewise pledged to reinstate DADT, while also saying he would appoint only judges who share his Christian belief that life begins as conception, would de-fund Planned Parenthood, and veto the Employment Non-Discrimination Act:

Cain also related to Fischer how "God is speaking to me through my granddaughter" and her text message to tell him he needs to run for president:
