Bryan Fischer Does Not Approve Of Any Potential Truce

The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer slams Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels for suggesting the need for a "truce" in the culture war and explains why Daniels is wrong ... as only Bryan Fischer can:

There are two things that are disastrously wrong with what the governor said.

First, in the culture war, there is no such thing as a "truce." A truce is the same as a surrender. It's no different than the phony truces Muslim nations enter into, which for them are not a prelude to peace but an opportunity to re-arm.

What the governor apparently does not understand is that the other side will never give up, never back down, never quit. They pursue their radical agenda with a mindless persistence, pressing, clamoring, hectoring, demanding, bloviating without ceasing. There can be no truce with such an adversary.

I'm reminded of the homosexuals who demanded sex with Lot's guests, as recorded in Genesis 19:4-10. They "surrounded the house" and "pressed hard against the man Lot" until they were blinded by God. Even that didn't stop them. "They wore themselves out groping for the door."

We are up against tireless adversaries and we ourselves must be tireless and unflagging in our opposition to their life- and culture-destroying agenda.

Apparently, if Christians were to accept any such truce, it would just be used as an opportunity for Muslims and gays to re-arm and rape them.

AFA's Fischer Suddenly Discovers The Importance of The Separation of Church and State

The AFA's Bryan Fischer has made no secret of the fact that he does not like Muslims because, as he says, "devout Muslims simply cannot become good Americans."

Interestingly, Fischer's unrelenting hatred of Islam seems to suddenly be making him see the value of separation of church and state. In his latest post, he offers his comments on a WorldNetDaily article about a group of Muslims in Kansas who are requesting that city officials set apart a section of a city-owned cemetery strictly for Muslim use .. and Fischer is outraged by the idea that a religious group wants public officials to sanction their specific religious demands to the exclusion of others (Fischer's comments are in bold): 

A coalition of Muslim leaders in Garden City, Kan., has told city officials they want part of the public municipal cemetery to be set aside – with a fence or other marker – to be reserved for their use exclusively.

The key word here is "exclusively." Non-Muslims not allowed. In other words, they want city officials to participate in a blatant exercise in religious discrimination. You will note that they are aiming for sanctified property in a public cemetery, thus gaining official government recognition of Sharia law. Worrisome? Not unless you realize that Muslims will not be content to stop here. Their goal is to take over every cemetery in America and run them according to the dictates of Islam. Those who think this is hyperbolic exaggeration haven't been paying attention. The Muslim Brotherhood has made it quite plain that the goal is ultimate domination by Islam of every public institution in America. The time to stop the takeover is now.

Jim Hahn, the city's cemetery caretaker, said there used to be a number of divisions – for Catholics, Protestants and others – in the city facility, but those divisions have been removed.

"We try to accommodate everyone as best we can, and we're trying to get away from sectioning off sections of the cemetery to specific people," he told the newspaper. "The way I look at it, being a municipal cemetery, you want to stay as neutral as possible. There are a lot of different religions out there, and we try to accommodate them as best we can while fitting in with our rules and regulations."

Notice here the fundamental incompatibility of Islam with Western values, and with our national slogan, "E Pluribus Unum." While the city is moving in the direction of erasing religious distinctions in the cemetery, Muslims want to reinstitute them. They want to Balkanize American society. They want to go back to the days of segregation, which would represent a huge step backward for American society. If they are successful here, this will be but a beachhead for further and more aggressive attempts to impose Muslim concepts on compliant but misguided public officials.

But Mohamad Abdulkadir, a leader of the Somalians, told the newspaper two members of his ethnic community died in recent months and were taken to a Muslim cemetery in Wichita.

"If they deny our request, maybe we can buy some land, but we're waiting to see what (city officials) say," he told the paper.

This of course is their solution. If they want their own Muslim burial grounds in a Christian nation, then nobody is stopping them from buying a piece of property and turning it into the cemetery of their choice. What they should not expect is official governmental sanction for Sharia law.

This is qute a change from Fischer's speech last year at the Values Voter Summit when he declared that only Congress was restrained by the First Amendment's ban on the establishment of religion and that it was "constitutionally impossible ... for a city council ... to violate the First Amendment."

But that apparently only applies so long as the religion is question if Christianity.  If the religion seeking a form of establishment and sanction from elected officials is Islam, then it is an absolute outrage. 

Bryan Fischer Wants To Set The Record Straight

The AFA's Bryan Fischer has written a post designed to "set the record straight on a number of issues" regarding some of his more outrageous statements, particularly as its relates to the coverage he has been getting from Jeremy at Good As You.

We'll just let his admissions speak for themselves: 

- I have in fact proposed that homosexual behavior once again be made against the law.

- I have in fact suggested the same sanctions be imposed on homosexual conduct that are imposed on intravenous drug abuse.

- Adolph Hitler did in fact surround himself with homosexual thugs.

- I have in fact suggested that Muslims should be ineligible for military service.

- I have in fact suggested severe restrictions on Muslim immigration into the United States.

Interestingly, regarding his claim that Hitler was gay and so we all of his top soldiers, Warren Throckmorton got Lothar Machtan, the author of "The Hidden Hitler" - which was the book Fischer originally cited as evidence - to comment on Fischer's interpretation of his work

Machtan told me that he believes Hitler's (alleged) homosexuality influenced his political career up to about 1934-35. However, Machtan wrote in clear terms that Hitler's cruelty was not due to his sexuality, saying, "Hitler's atrocities primarily do NOT derive from his homosexuality." Regarding the Holocaust, Machtan added, "Of course you CANNOT blame Hitler's homosexuality for the Holocaust." (Machtan supplied the emphasis).

In his post, Fischer also disputes the way some of his statements have been characterized, especially his recent call for everyone to "be a Phinehas in our own world, and in our own generation":

I never advocated running fornicators through with a spear. I cited the example of Phinehas from Numbers 25 to draw attention not to his specific act but to the character, courage, decisiveness and boldness which drove him to intervene in a dramatic way to save his nation from a deadly plague. Accusing me of anything beyond that is as ridiculous of accusing me of saying I want people to put a bullet in the brain of the next German they see because I admire the courage our soldiers showed on D-Day.

As I asked before, what exactly does he think people should do in order to demonstrate their own Phinehas-like dedication to God, given that the one thing that set Phinehas apart from all the others was his willingness to murder for God?

Fischer's long history of attacking gays as sexually deviant pedophiles and degenerates is central to this issue.  He has made a career out of attacking and demonizing gays, and so when he starts approvingly citing a story of a man who murdered two people for their "sexual immorality" and urges people to show that same sort of courage and dedication, it raises questions. 

Imagine for a moment that Fischer has made a career out of attacking and demonizing Germans and then suddenly urged all Americas to show the same sort of courage as demonstrated by soldiers on D-Day. That would likewise raise questions ... and not because people are offering "ridiculous" interpretations of his statements but rather because Fischer's own history has created a context in which such statements raise legitimate questions about his intention. 

In What "Other Ways" Does Wildmon Intend To Warn Comedy Central?

Yesterday we noted that several Religious Right leaders had formed a new group called Citizens Against Religious Bigotry to protest a scheduled Comedy Central program about Jesus Christ called "JC."

It seems that organizers are upset about Comedy Central's "double standard" when it comes to Christianity and Islam:

[American Family Association president Tim Wildmon] is quick to point out that a few weeks ago, Comedy Central edited out a segment from South Park that was disrespectful of Mohammed after a Moslem activist group complained. Wildmon, along with those in the Coalition Against Religious Bigotry, feel that creates a double standard.

"It seems like something that Comedy Central should take note of, that Christians will not stand by and let this happen with our Lord and Savior either," the AFA president comments. "We will respond economically and in other ways to what Comedy Central's doing here."

Of course, Comedy Central censored "South Park" because of death threats

A radical Islamic website had warned the creators of "South Park" that they could face violent retribution for their depiction of Prophet Muhammad.

RevolutionMuslim.com posted the warning following the 200th episode of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's "South Park," which included a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad disguised in a bear suit. The web posting also included a graphic photo of Theo van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was murdered in 2004 after making a documentary on violence against Muslim women.

"We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show," the posting reads. "This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them."

Abu Talhah al Amrikee, the author of the post, told Foxnews.com he wrote the entry to "raise awareness." He said the grisly photograph of van Gogh was meant to "explain the severity" of what Parker and Stone did by mocking Muhammad.

Is that what Wildmon has in mind when he says that "Christians will not stand by and let this happen with our Lord and Savior either" and that they will respond "in other ways" to this program? We certainly hope not.

Lively: Repealing DADT Will Outrage Muslims and Lead To More Terrorism

It is remarkable to watch right-wing commentators desperately trying to come up with new and convincing reasons why Don't Ask, Don't Tell should remain in place.  

In the last few days, we've seen the Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg claims that it'll lead to widespread gay rape, while his colleague, FRC President Tony Perkins claims that it'll destroy the religious freedom of military chaplains.

At the same time, Cliff Kincaid’s America’s Survival has been warning that our soldiers will be destroyed by "disease-tainted gay blood" ... and he is now being outdone by Scott Lively, who has set out his own list of reasons, including his standard "the Nazis were gay" claims, along with warnings about the reinstatement of the draft, the ultimate takeover of the military by gays, and that we are endangering the lives of all Americans by outraging Muslims:

Once homosexuals are invited to serve, the authorities will be committed to integrate them into the ranks, which means “sensitivity” training, anti-discrimination policies, and all of the other “politically correct” nonsense that has been such a disaster in the other spheres of our society. These policies have smacked of pro-“gay” fascism in the civilian world; how much worse would it be in the rigidly-controlled environment of the military?

A sizable percentage of men would not willingly subject themselves to such an environment. So, ironically, reinstatement of the draft would be made necessary by “homophobia,” and for that reason the anti-war Lefties would suddenly become defenders of compulsory service.

...

Most people don’t realize that male homosexuality does not always lean to the effeminate. Historically, male homosexuality was much more often associated with hyper-masculine warrior societies which were usually very brutal and very politically aggressive. The most recent example was in Germany. Hitler’s initial power base when he launched the Nazi Party was a private homosexual military force organized and trained by a notorious pederast named Gerhard Rossbach. Rossbach’s homosexual partner Ernst Roehm, who was also Hitler’s partner in forming and building the Nazi Party, converted the “gay” Rossbachbund into the dreaded SA Brownshirts.

...

Next would come a severe drop in enlistments and re-enlistments, triggering the reinstatement of the draft. This would in turn begin a degeneration of the moral and ethical culture of the services as those with the highest personal values would be most likely to leave, being replaced, in many cases, by men whose motivation is to share a male-dominated environment with others of similar sexual proclivities.

...

Lastly, and perhaps most serious is the loss of our moral authority around the world, especially in the Moslem countries. Until now, we have relied upon the partnership of moderate Moslems in our campaign to marginalize the extremists who already call us The Great Satan for our moral ambiguities. Yet how quickly will we lose the popular support of these people and governments when they know that the soldiers we are sending for “nation-building” on Moslem soil are overt, practicing homosexuals? We are handing the extremists an entirely new and powerful recruiting tool, and undermining the goodwill of every socially conservative nation on the planet, culminating in a net increase of danger for our troops and decrease of respect for our way of life.

GOD TV Needs Millions to Stay On the Air

According to an email sent about by GOD TV, the station needs to raise more than a million dollars by the end of the week, and $4 million by the end of the month, in order to stay on the air: 

GOD TV faces one of the biggest financial challenges the ministry has experienced. We need $1.5 million by 23 May and another $2.5 million in the bank by 31 May. This means a total of $4 million, to enable us to continue broadcasting from Jerusalem to the nations!

Please pray and give your best gift to help overcome this challenge, so that together we can fulfill our calling to take the Gospel into millions of homes worldwide.

This ministry has a history of miracles - and we know we are in God's hands -- but right now your GOD TV is in urgent need and we are personally appealing to the entire GOD TV Family to help.

They are urgently seeking donations .. and frankly I hope they get the money they need, since GOD TV is often the only media outlet to broadcast the right-wing events that we cover here, like the recent May Day prayer rally:

If GOD TV is not around to cover these sorts of events, then nobody will cover them and we'll all lose.

With One Day To Go, LU Student Finally Voices Concern Over Beck

A few weeks ago, we noted that Glenn Beck has been invited to deliver the commencement address at Liberty University's graduation ceremony and wondered if LU students would react negatively to the idea of having a Mormon deliver such an address, as students at Regent University did back in 2007 when Mitt Romey was invited to its graduation.

Well, the ceremony is tomorrow and we have to admit that we hadn't seen anything from Liberty students objecting to Beck's invitation ... until today when we saw this op-ed by Ryan Begue, who is being awarded the Master of Arts in Theological Studies, complaining that he is "perplexed as to why it seems more [students] are not as equally alarmed" about it as he is:

For those who may not be aware, Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., which has consistently been known for its strong conservative and Christian values as a Baptist school, has invited political talk show host Glenn Beck to give the commencement speech to its graduates this week. On the surface that may not seem alarming to many since he is conservative. But given the fact he is a Mormon there ought to be red flags and sirens going off all across Christian circles.

...

I have no beef with Glenn Beck as a person, but I certainly do with his religious beliefs ...If you were under the impression Mormonism is a Christian group you are greatly mistaken. Mormonism is a polytheistic religion which believes Mary had sex with one of their gods and became pregnant with Jesus. They do not believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone or many other critical truths of our faith. Christians sadly have more in common with Muslims if you really get down to it since at least they are monotheistic — and we know how far from the truth Islam is.

I must say how shocked and disappointed I was when I arrived for the commencement ceremonies to discover that a man who is not committed to the Gospel was speaking to a group of graduates who have committed verbally that they are. If I were a student at BYU I would expect it, but not at Liberty. Let's not fall into the trap that conservatism is the greatest need in America.

I consider all the men I have met at Liberty as brothers, but am very concerned about the future of the school. If Liberty is doing this because they are trying to build bridges to reach out to the lost community I applaud their hearts, but this isn't the right avenue. It is time for Liberty to get on track and make sure they send a clear message to the world that their commitment is first to the Gospel.

Sen. Inhofe: Soldiers Will Be Unwilling To Fight For Gay Comrades

I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the fact that Sen. James Inhofe appeared on "Focal Point" yesterday, the radio program hosted by the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer.

After all, if there was going to be one member of Congress comfortable with someone like Fischer - who has declared that all Muslims should be banned from the military and deported from the US, homosexuality should be illegal and that all gays should be treated like criminals, praised Ryan Sobra for his anti-gay rant at CPAC, called for the stoning of a killer whale at Sea World, and stated that gays are sexually deviant felons and pedophiles who are unqualified to sit on the Supreme Court - it would be Inhofe.

Yesterday, the two discussed Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court, with Fischer praising Inhofe's immediate opposition on the grounds that Kagan is hostile to our military while Inhofe explained that it was vital to try and keep Kagan off the court because she would most likely vote to strike down Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

The military is organized into men and women and doesn't need this "third group to deal with," Inhofe said, explaining that, as a military man, he knows that soldiers fight not for nation or flag, but for the guy in the next foxhole ... but if the guy in the next foxhole is gay, well, that would dramatically change everything: 

Franklin Graham Continues to Play the Victim

Franklin Graham is apparently under the impression that freedom of speech and religion means that he is allowed to say anything the wants and nobody has a right to disagree or complain, nor will there ever be any repercussions, because he was merely exercising his religious freedom,

That, at least, seems to be his stock response whenever he discusses being disinvited from the Pentagon's National Day of Prayer event, as he's now complaining to CBN's David Brody that Christianity is being "put down":

"I think it is a put down, because there seems to be that Islam gets a pass, that a couple of Muslims complain about a Christian event at the Pentagon, when there's been Christian events at the Pentagon for years. My father has preached there, I have preached there, many others have preached there, but yet a couple of Muslims can complain. They can have Ramadan, they have their prayer services there, I don't complain, I'm happy for them to do that, but for them to complain because I don't believe as they believe and I don't worship the same God that they worship. I worship a different God than they worship. But we love them, and I care for them, and I want Muslims everywhere to know what I know that Jesus Christ died for their sins the same way he died for mine and if they're willing to confess and repent of their sins and receive Christ in their hearts, then their lives, they can have that assurance of salvation, forgiveness of sin, and they can have that assurance of Heaven, and I want them to know that."

I wonder how Graham and the Religious Right if the Pentagon had invited a Jewish or Muslim speaker to the Day of Prayer event who had called Christianity a "very evil and wicked religion"?

I'm sure that they would have respected said speaker's religious and first amendment rights ... just like they did when a group of Muslims tried to hold a prayer rally on the National Mall last year.

Dobson and Graham Warn Christians Are Losing Their Religious Freedom

Earlier this morning, the Family Research Council hosted a pre-National Day of Prayer webcast featuring Franklin Graham, James Dobson, Harry Jackson, and Tony Perkins.

During their respective addresses, both Dobson and Graham warned those in attendance that Christianity was on the road to becoming illegal, with Dobson claiming that there are people in high places committed to eradicating every vestige of Christianity from the public square and Graham comparing the US to Communist Europe and China where Christians are not allowed to preach outside of the church walls, saying such restrictions are coming to America, probably in his lifetime:

In related new, it seems that Graham is miffed about being disinvited to the Pentagon's Day of Prayer event and is now lashing out at President Obama, saying that if he doesn't get the action reversed, "it will be a slap in the face of all Christians":

If President Obama fails to intervene to allow controversial evangelist Franklin Graham to lead a National Day of Prayer event Thursday inside the Pentagon, "it will be a slap in the face of all Christians," Graham said Tuesday.

And invited or not, he'll stand in front of the Pentagon and pray, Graham said in an interview.

...

In an interview Tuesday with USA TODAY, Graham reiterated his belief that "Muslims do not worship the same 'God the Father' I worship." He laughed at Hinduism's many manifestations of God: "No elephant with 100 arms can do anything for me. None of their 9,000 gods is going to lead me to salvation.

"We are fooling ourselves if we think we can have some big kumbaya service and all hold hands and it's all going to get better in this world. It's not going to get better," Graham said.

He also said Obama pays attention only to black charismatic and Pentecostal pastors, such as his spiritual adviser, Joshua Dubois. Dubois heads the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, which has dozens of advisers from a wide spectrum of denominations.

...

Still, Graham said, he "warned" Dubois that Obama is losing millions of "mainstream evangelicals" because he appears to be "soft on Islam" and he doesn't stand up for the "rights of the historic Christian majority."

AFA's Fischer: Any Muslim Unwilling to Renounce Islam Ought to be Denied Entry to the US

In a move that comes as no surprise, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer uses news of an arrest of a suspect in the attempted Times Square bombing to reiterate his call to cut off immigration to all Muslims who refuse to renounce their religion: 

It's simply not possible to watch every Muslim with an SUV or a van 24/7. This same incident can be repeated anywhere at anytime in any American city, and we won't be able to do anything but scoop up body parts.

The objective observer who is not blinded by decaying concepts of multiculturalism can surely see it is wrongheaded for any nation to grant citizenship to people whose religion teaches them that they have a sacred obligation to kill their hosts.

So far, we have been saved only by the incompetence of the Christmas Day underwear bomber and by the incompetence of Shahzad, who mis-wired his bomb and used the wrong kind of fertilizer. In other words, we have been lucky rather than smart. It's time to get smart and close our borders to followers of a prophet who teaches them that their god wants them to kill Americans.

If they are willing to renounce their allegiance to the prophet and the religion of Muhammad, and disown the Koran and everything it teaches about killing infidels, wife-beating, and second-class citizenship for Christians, then they can become good Americans. Until then, it's impossible. Their religion teaches them a value system that is wholly at odds with American ideals. They will simply represent an element that will tear asunder what remains of our cultural unity and pose an increasing danger to innocent American lives.

Because we love people, we want Muslims to leave the deception, darkness and viciousness of Islam to find light and truth in the message of the Prince of Peace. In order to be for Muslims, we must be against Islam. We are pro-Muslim but anti-Islam.

If someone has a better idea, I'm all ears. Until then, I remain convinced that if we truly care about the safety and security of the American people, Muslim immigration must come to a halt. That's not Islamophobia, it's Islamo-realism.

Such a move, of course, will do nothing to protect us from the millions of Muslims who are already here, many of them clearly Amerophobes and already radicalized. But at least we'll have fewer of them to watch.

I don't know why Fischer is now saying that there is no way "to protect us from the millions of Muslims who are already here," since it was just a few weeks ago when he called for the deportation of every Muslim in America, including those who had become citizens, unless they "are willing to convert to Christianity and renounce Islam, Allah, Mohammed and the Koran [and] become not just good Christians but true Americans."

May Day 2010: Repenting for Porn, the Runaways, and Muslims in Congress

The 10:00-11:00 hour of the May Day 2010 prayer rally was dedicated to "Repentance for the Mountain of Arts & Entertainment."

I have edited it down to give you the highlights, including Ted Baehr repenting for the movie "The Runaways" with its sex, and drugs, and rock and roll, while others repent for Los Angeles and its role as the home of the pornography industry.  Eventually, Janet Porter repents for all the time and money Christians have given to an industry that hates God and prays that Christians will gain control over the industry and take dominion until Christ returns.  That is then followed by a woman from Minnesota who repents for her state having elected the first Muslim to Congress ... and then eventually God shows up at the rally: 

Is Religious Right’s Star Ex-Muslim a Serial Liar?

Dr. Ergun Caner, the president of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, has been a rising star on the Religious Right, entertaining audiences at major Religious Right gatherings with his hip, irreverent stories about his upbringing as a radical Muslim and his conversion to Christianity. Just this week, his story was featured on Focus on the Family’s broadcast, “From Jihad to Jesus.”

Turns out, according to a growing chorus of critics – many of them Southern Baptists and other Christians – Caner has apparently been lying for years about his childhood and his life story. It’s hard to even summarize the extent of the deceptions being described by his critics, but they include his claims to have grown up in Turkey and to have personally involved in Islamic Jihad, when court records from his parents’ divorce place him in Columbus, Ohio when he was just a few years old. Check some of the critical websites for voluminous debunking of Caner’s colorful (and apparently fanciful) stories about  learning about America through TV broadcasts in Turkey and more. Some charges are even more directly related to his ministry, such as his claims to have debated top Muslim scholars around the world. Caner’s critics say there’s no evidence of those debates. 
 
These are no vague or reckless charges, but carefully documented exposes that draw from Caner’s sermons, speeches, and online videos, and other public records.  Liberty doesn’t seem to have responded publicly, but recently posted a revised version of Caner’s bio with disputed claims removed. 
 
Some of Caner’s critics are willing to forgive him, but only if he owns up to his massive deceptions.  Meanwhile, Caner and his supporters have been trying to get his critics to shut up. Caner himself has pulled the Religious Right’s favored religious persecution card, reportedly saying in a memo to his Liberty colleagues, “I never thought I would see the day when alleged ‘Christians’ join with Muslims to attack converts.”
 
Meanwhile, others are starting to raise questions about the extent to which Ergun’s brother Emir, who heads a Baptist college in Georgia, may have assisted in Ergun’s deceptions, whether actively or by passively allowing false claims to go unchallenged.
 
It doesn’t look like Liberty University is going to be able to shove this under the rug. Stay tuned.

Graham's Disinvitation Proof That Our Military Is Run By "Fundamentalist Muslims and Homosexual Activists"

Yesterday, it was reported that the Army had rescinded its invitation to Franklin Graham to speak at a National Day of Prayer event at the Pentagon due to his past attacks on Islam.

Not surprisingly, Religious Right activists are upset. 

While Gordon Klingenschmitt focuses his ire on Mickey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, TVC's Andrea Lafferty blamed CAIR

Nihad Awad, a founder of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its chief public spokesman, was the first to start taking a victory lap and announced that evangelist Franklin Graham was "disinvited" from a National Day of Prayer ceremony at the Pentagon.

"This attack on Franklin Graham and Christians was engineered by CAIR and it has the fingerprints of Barack Obama's White House all over it," said Traditional Values Coalition Executive Director Andrea Lafferty.

"Nihad Awad and CAIR offer us a preview of what America will be like if they are ever successful. Playing by their rules – shariah law—there is no separation of church and state. There is one state religion and Islam is it. There is zero tolerance for anything at variance with Islam, particularly if it's Christian or Jewish.

For  this part, FRC's Tony Perkins claimed the decision is an attack on the religious freedom of all Christians: 

The fact that he has theological differences with Islam, differences wholly in keeping with the teachings of the New Testament, and that he has expressed them publicly, is now being used by anti-Christian zealots in a manner offensive to the freedom of religion guaranteed by the very Constitution military leaders are sworn to uphold.

"This decision is further evidence that the leadership of our nation's military has been impaired by the politically correct culture being advanced by this Administration. Under this Administration's watch we are seeing the First Amendment, designed to protect the religious exercise of Americans, retooled into a sword to sever America's ties with orthodox Christianity.

"For those Christian leaders who have avoided the controversy of political issues, saying they just wanted to preach the gospel - this should be a wake up call!"

And never one to be outdone, the AFA's Bryan Fischer sees it as proof that our military has been taken over by "fundamentalist Muslims and homosexual activists": 

Bottom line: you want to know who's now running the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy and the Marines and calling the shots where it counts? Fundamentalist Muslims and homosexual activists.

In fact, I'll predict that there will be a day of prayer at the Pentagon on May 6, and it will feature a Muslim imam, a homosexual clergyman, and no conservative Christians of any kind.

This is not your father's military. It's not even your father's country anymore.

Fischer: Deporting Entire Families "Makes Vigilante Justice Unnecessary"

As we've noted before, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer is not overly concerned with appearing to be compassionate, declaring that telling those who have children out of wedlock that America is no longer going to provide money or services to help them raise their "bastard children."

And even on the occasions where he does claim to be showing compassion, he seems to have a rather odd definition of it, declaring that the "most compassionate thing we can do" is to ban all Muslims from immigrating to the United States and deport all Muslims already living here.

Along those same lines, today Fischer voices his opposition to illegal immigration and declares that if one immigrant is here illegally, the US should deport the entire family, as that is the compassionate thing to do ... plus, as an added bonus, wholesale deportation "makes vigilante justice unnecessary":

Plus, there is no reason why families must be separated at all. We can believe in family integrity and in sound immigration policy at the same time. We don't have to choose between them. It's perfectly possible for us to repatriate entire families to their land of origin to keep husbands and wives together and parents and children together. In fact, I would suggest compassion as well as justice demands no less.

And as long as we are talking about compassion, what about compassion for American citizens who are law-abiding but have to bear the cost and injury caused by uncontrolled immigration? One abiding scriptural principle is that justice and compassion are two sides of the same coin. Compassion is the obverse side of justice, and justice the obverse side of compassion.

What this means in practice is that justice is a way of showing compassion, particularly to victims. it gives them closure, a sense that justice has been done, validates the impact the crime has had on them, and makes vigilante justice unnecessary.

So even in situations where children may have been born in America, thus making them citizens, and one of the parents is here legally, if the other parent is here illegally, Fischer's solution is to deport them all in order to keep the family together ... in the name of compassion.

Tea Party Tries to Clean Up Its Act? Not Exactly

Earlier today I wrote that Tea Party activists were trying to improve their image and salvage their reputation by dropping Orly Taitz from a California tea party rally.

I may have spoken too soon:

The Starkville Tea Party will hold a rally Thursday at noon in front of the Oktibbeha County Courthouse. The Columbus Tea Party will hold a rally Thursday at 5:15 p.m. on the Lowndes County Courthouse steps.

...

In Columbus, Bryan Fischer, director of issue analysis for the American Family Association, is one of three scheduled speakers. The American Family Association “represents and stands for traditional family values and exists to motivate and equip citizens to reform our culture to reflect Biblical truth on which it was founded,” according to the group’s Web site.

In fact, I am sure that I spoke too soon:

The sound of freedom rung throughout the Ervin J. Nutter Center on Tuesday, Apr. 13 as conservatives came out for the Dayton Tea Party Rally.

...

The highlight of the evening was former presidential candidate and conservative activist Alan Keyes.

Keyes criticized "an elite that has abandoned allegiance to God almighty" for the nation's current ills and, in a not-so-subtle allusion to the Biblical book of Exodus, stated that "the Tea Party movement is turning November into a Passover election" that will dethrone the elite.

"I take God really seriously," said Keyes. "And I take the connection between God and our liberty even more seriously than that."

Keyes challenged Tea Party members to define the movement, using the Spirit of 1776 as a point of reference. The conservative activist called on Tea Party participants to mimic the founding fathers' resistance of oppression as a means of restoring the nation to its former glory.

"No matter how much you like tea, if it comes at the price of your freedom, you'll throw it in the ocean," said Keyes. "You'll say no."

While Republicans in California refused to be seen with Orly Taitz due to her Birther obsession, that was apparently not a concern for U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, who shared the stage with Keyes (whom Taitz is representing in her Birther lawsuits) at the Ohio rally.

As for Fischer, in the last week he's declared that all Muslims in America must be deported and that all Muslim citizens are traitors who must convert to Christianity.  And let's not forget his recent calls for all gays to be treated like criminals and for the stoning of a killer whale at Sea World in accordance with Biblical teachings.

AFA's Fischer: Muslim Citizens Are Traitors and Must Be Expelled

Last week, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer followed-up his call from last year to purge all Muslims from the US military with a call to purge all Muslims from the United States in general.

Today, Fischer has returned to defend his call for all Muslims in the United States to be deported immediately by claiming that every Muslim has a "solemn, sacred obligation to kill as many of their hosts as possible" and it is therefore "a form of suicidal insanity" to allow them to stay in the US .

Fischer admits that while not every single Muslim is out to destroy the US, since we can't know which ones are ahead of time, it only makes sense to view "every new Muslim immigrant [as a] potential threat to the safety and security of the United States" and to treat all Muslims citizens as traitors: 

Bottom line: every Muslim who enters the United States carries within his bosom the seeds of sedition. It is dangerously foolish for the United States to invite folks inside our borders whose god orders them, through his holy prophet, to murder American infidels. According to the latest Easter polling data, infidels comprise about 80 percent of our population, the 80 percent who believe that Jesus is the Son of God, came to earth to die for our sins, and rose from the grave. Each of these beliefs is regarded in Islam as a heresy which ultimately merits the death penalty.

And if the government won't impose this death penalty on the infidels, the Muslims themselves will be happy to impose it on their own initiative, as 9/11 and Fort Hood amply illustrate.

If we separate ourselves for a moment from the rampant and mindless political correctness and multiculturalism which controls the thinking of the elites, and the ordinary Americans who allow the elite to do their thinking for them, it is obviously and plainly nuts to throw out the welcome mat to those who have a religious obligation to obliterate us. It is beyond comprehension that we have become so brain-addled that we regard it a positive virtue to blindly embrace our own destroyers.

Muslims who have become naturalized citizens, of course, would need to commit an act of treason to forfeit their citizenship and become eligible for repatriation. Based on the Constitution's definition of treason in Article III Section 3 ["adhering to (the) Enemies (of the United States), (or) giving them Aid and Comfort"] treasonous acts are likely committed on virtually a weekly basis here in the U.S. in many mosques and Islamic organizations.

Fischer concludes that the goal of every Muslim is to "establish a virtual Islamic homeland in our midst" and that instead of spending money on eventually incarcerating them, we should use that money to deport them:

Is this xenophobia? Nope, just common sense and a love of the United States and its exceptionalism. In fact, what we must protect ourselves from are Amerophobes, those who hate us because of who we are and what we believe. It's time for a wake-up call.

AFA's Fischer Calls For An End to Muslim Immigration And The Deportation of All Muslims In the US

A few months ago, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer declared that the time had come to throw all Muslims out of the US military and prevent any others from every serving again.

So I guess it should not come as a surprise that Fisher is now calling for the deportation of all Muslims in the US along with a blanket ban on the immigration of Muslims into this country:

[T]he most compassionate thing we can do for Americans is to bring a halt to the immigration of Muslims into the U.S. This will protect our national security and preserve our national identity, culture, ideals and values. Muslims, by custom and religion, are simply unwilling to integrate into cultures with Western values and it is folly to pretend otherwise. In fact, they remain dedicated to subjecting all of America to sharia law and are working ceaselessly until that day of Islamic imposition comes.

The most compassionate thing we can do for Muslims who have already immigrated here is to help repatriate them back to Muslim countries, where they can live in a culture which shares their values, a place where they can once again be at home, surrounded by people who cherish their deeply held ideals. Why force them to chafe against the freedom, liberty and civil rights we cherish in the West?

In other words, simple Judeo-Christian compassion dictates a restriction and repatriation policy with regard to Muslim immigration into the U.S.

I guess that I should point out that Fischer is listed as a confirmed speaker [PDF] at next week's "Awakening 2010" Freedom Federation summit where VA Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will be delivering a keynote address.

Last week we posted a clip from "The 700 Club" in which Pat Robertson and co-host Terry Meeuwsen compared being criticized for attacking Muslims to being called a bigot for standing up against Hitler and the Nazis. Now Chris Roslan, a spokesperson for Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network, has issued a press release claiming that Robertson never compared the fight against Islam to the fight against the Nazis:  Pat Robertson Never Stated That "Fighting Islam Is Like Fighting Nazis" As Is Being Reported Erroneously On Some Websites Recently, CBN reported on the...

As we have noted before, Herman Cain has been desperately spinning his infamous claim that, if elected president, he would not appoint any Muslims to serve in his administration. Recently Cain was in New Hampshire where he discussed the issue again with political blog GraniteGrok and asserted, beginning at the 3:36 mark, that he never said that he would refuse to appoint Muslims, only that he would not be comfortable with appointing Muslims: Cain: This is floating around on the internet and I hope that everybody sees my response on your website because, quite honestly, I'm sick of answering...

On the 700 Club today, Pat Robertson once again spoke out against American Muslims, singling out the construction of mosques and the purported threat of creeping Sharia law. Robertson likened critics of Muslims to opponents of Nazis and rejected claims that his opposition to rights for Muslims is bigotry, asking, “I wonder what were people who opposed the Nazis, were they bigots?” “Why is it bigoted to resist Adolf Hitler and the Nazis and to say we don’t want to live under Nazi Germany?” Robertson said. “But oh it’s bigoted if we speak out against...

Last week Bryan Fischer announced his support for laws banning profanity and blasphemy and followed that up over the weekend with a Tweet calling for laws banning fornication and adultery: And this got me thinking about what life in America would look like if Bryan Fischer got his way: Muslims would be banned from serving in the armed forces. Muslims would be banned from immigrating to the United States. Muslims citizens would be charged with treason and deported. Muslims would be banned from building mosques. Muslims would be denied all First Amendment protections.... MORE

As we have noted before, Herman Cain is now trying to walk back his pledge not to allow Muslims to serve in his administration if he is elected president, claiming that what he meant was that he would refuse to hire radical Muslims.  And that is a point he keeps trying to sell: [I]n an appearance on outgoing Fox News Channel show host Glenn Beck’s radio program Tuesday morning, Cain clarified the record and said his comments have been “misconstrued.” “I immediately said – without thinking – ‘No, I would not be comfortable,’” Cain...

We are constantly writing about the steady stream of bigotry that flows from Bryan Fischer via his American Family Association blog and daily radio program, but it is important to remember that Fischer isn't just saying this stuff so in order to provide us with constant fodder for posts, but because he truly believes the things that he says and has an audience who believes such things as well. Case in point was this caller from today's program who, in under a minute, managed to rail against the "Benedict Arnolds" who are preventing the majestic eagle that is America from flying... MORE

As we noted last week, Bryan Fischer has made it his new cause in life to prove that "the number one class of people who are committing hate crimes today are homosexual activists." Fischer bases this idea upon a definition of a hate crime that he took off us USLegal.com, which reads: "A hate crime is usually defined by state law as one that involves threats, harassment, or physical harm and is motivated by prejudice against someone's race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation or physical or mental disability." Fischer has seized upon the... MORE
