For $150, Glenn Beck Will Help Women Realize Their God-Given Right 'To Feel Pretty'

Glenn Beck took to his Facebook page this morning to announce the release of a new series of denim jeans and jackets from his 1791 clothing line and, in typical Beck fashion, he managed to do so in pretty much the most sanctimonious and self-aggrandizing way imaginable.

Beck explained that whenever he used to go shopping with his daughters, they could never find clothes that fit them properly and, as a result, he "vowed if I ever had a chance I would start a fashion line that was cool, hip, and great quality that would come in sizes that would fit."

Now that day has come and Beck is finally able to help the women of the world realize their "fundamental God given rights" to "feel pretty" and it is all thanks to "the power of a dads [sic] love for his daughter":

Today I make good on that promise. 1791 is proud to announce our new line of women's Denim. We begin with denim jacket and jeans.

They were designed for and tested on all the girls in my life. It has taken us almost two years to get the design just right.

I am proud that finally I can rest knowing any dad who feels the way I do about the most beautiful girl ever born, my daughter, will be able to feel that way when she slips into her favorite jeans, blouse and jacket.

My wife who is a little more like the current runway models and my daughter who is more classic both can wear and love their new 1791s.

I kind of think it is one of those fundamental God given rights. To feel pretty.

Because you are.

As we grow so will our selection and sizes because it is time we celebrate real diversity. After all, God made us different colors, shapes and sizes.

Please check out the beginning of our new line of women's clothing at 1791.com and see what the power of a dads love for his daughter can build.

Unfortunately for Beck, his announcement is not quite being met with the chorus of accolades that he apparently expected, but rather comment after comment from fans wondering exactly how they are supposed to be able to afford his new $150 jeans:

  • These are great! But most women can't afford a $150 pair of jeans
  • I wish you had made them more affordable!!! I can't spend $300 on 2 pairs of jeans when I spend that much every season for clothes for my family of 4.
  • That's a nice story and a nice idea, but I wonder if Glenn could have paid $160 for a single pair of jeans back then? Ouch. I think you've lost touch with what it's like to live on the edge in modern day middle-income America. If I bought a pair of your jeans, if have to use this week's grocery $. And then some. Sigh.
  • Remember when you weren't rich or famous? Yeah, that describes your fan base.
  • You're kidding right? $170 for a pair of jeans? $76 for a flannel shirt? NO ONE I know can afford to shop there. We are all working stiffs with mortgages and kids and car payments; we work most days from 7-5 and Saturdays too.
  • Oh wow, a pair of jeans that comprises my grocery budget for the week. Not cool. While they are probably awesome, not for poor folk like me, fat or not.
  • These would be great if they were actually affordable to working-class families. I applaud your determination and the reason why this clothing line started, but these are not jeans that "real" people can afford. $170 for a pair of jeans is nothing to the Hollywood elite, but a good chunk of a working man's (or woman's) paycheck better spent on food for the family. Great quality or not, the average American will not be buying these.
  • I heard you talking about them on the radio. I went to the web site and was excited to buy a pair. Than I saw the price. $ 150.00 for middle class women is to expensive for me. I wish I could have ordered a pair. Lower the price please so that normal people can purchase a pair.
  • LOVE the idea, but $150 for a pair of jeans? NOPE!
  • You had great things to say.......BUT........for the most part, your audience can't afford these clothes! I thought you were in touch?!
  • ONE pair of jeans ($150), ONE flannel shirt ($90), and ONE T-shirt ($24) = $264 (plus tax). Get real.

Pat Robertson: Gays Will Force You To Like Anal Sex, Bestiality

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson repeated his criticism of the gay community in the wake of the controversy surrounding a new Indiana law which gives businesses the right to deny service to LGBT customers, among others.

Robertson dismissed the concerns of the owners of an Indiana pizzeria who feared that they would have to serve pizza at a same-sex couples’ wedding, saying that the business owners “might as well keep their mouth shut” since it was “the cake-makers that are having the problem.”

This led Robertson to a tirade about how gay people will force others to embrace anal sex and bestiality.

“It doesn’t matter what custom you’ve got, it doesn’t matter what holy thing that you worship and adore, the gays are going to get it,” Robertson said. “They’re going to make you conform to them. You are going to say you like anal sex, you like oral sex, you like bestiality, you like anything you can think of, whatever it is. And sooner or later you are going to have to conform your religious beliefs the group of some aberrant thing. It won’t stop at homosexuality.”

Robertson said that polygamy and “sex with animals” will “come next” as a result of the gay rights movement: “They’re going to be saying, ‘You’re intolerant, you’re intolerant, you’re trying to mitigate against these nice people who like dogs, what’s wrong with you?’” He then ranted about temporary marriages in Iran, which he claimed are a key component of Islam. (In reality, the majority of Muslims reject such temporary marriages, which only find support within the Twelver branch of Shia Islam).

Michael Savage: Obama To Blame For Shooting Of Boston Police Officer

On Monday, right-wing talk show host Michael Savage blamed President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder for the recent shooting of a Boston police officer, demanding that Obama and Holder, along with Al Sharpton and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, apologize to the victim. The perpetrator, who had a long history of violence, seriously injured a police officer during a traffic stop, shooting him in the face and neck.

“Because of Al Sharpton, Barack Obama and Eric Holder, and their war on police, especially white police, their constant harping on police, telling them that they’re racist, they’re no good, they’re no good, they’re no good, ‘black lives matter,’ ‘hands up, don’t shoot,’ because of their constant attacks on the police by de Blasio, Obama, Sharpton, as a result of that the cops approached the car that they had pulled over in Roxbury, Massachusetts, without guns drawn,” Savage said. “Now, in the past, the cops would have approached with their guns drawn, but because of Obama and Holder and Sharpton and de Blasio, the cops approached the car without guns drawn.”

Of course, there is nothing to suggest that the president, attorney general or mayor of a different city ordered cops to approach cars in a traffic stop without drawing their weapons, but Savage said that Obama must nevertheless send an apology to the victim.

Bryan Fischer: Clarifying Indiana's 'Religious Freedom' Law Will Lead To Slavery

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer voiced his opposition to any effort to clarify Indiana's "religious freedom" law, warning that doing so will result in Christians in the state being pushed into slavery.

As Fischer explained it, when Gov. Mike Pence said that the law should be clarified to make clear that no business will have the right to deny services to customers, he seemed to be signaling that religious bakers or florists or photographers will be compelled to provide their services to gay weddings, which is unconstitutional because slavery was outlawed under the Thirteenth Amendment.

"I'm afraid Governor Pence is dangerously close to allowing the homosexual lobby to get the state of Indiana," he warned, "to compel people to provide labor against their will.  What do we call it when people are compelled to provide labor against their will? Involuntary labor, what do we call that, ladies and gentlemen? That is involuntary servitude, that is slavery, that is something that is forbidden by the Thirteenth Amendment":

Anti-Gay Activists Furious People Joined Dan Savage's 'It Gets Better' Campaign Against Bullying

The right-wing Media Research Center is downright livid that ABC is working with Dan Savage on a semi-autobiographical sitcom, issuing a petition and letter demanding that the network terminate the project. While this is the same group whose president warned that any criticism of reality TV star Phil Robertson amounted to fascism and was an attack on freedom, the group now says that ABC must stop associating “with the hate language of this uncivil figure.”

MRC’s Dan Gainor appeared on “The Janet Mefferd Show” yesterday, where he especially took issue with Savage’s recent joke that if Ben Carson thinks being gay is a choice, then he can prove “how a man can choose to be gay” by performing a sex act.

Gainor and Mefferd said that such comments, among others, are so outrageous that any person who was involved in the It Gets Better Project, which focuses on combating the mistreatment of LGBT youth, should be ashamed.

“A lot of people will know Dan Savage from the It Gets Better campaign and the videos that they gathered and all this; this was fully supported by the Obama administration, so when you get to the point in culture when you have the White House actually getting involved and endorsing something done by somebody like this, it really is telling, it is quite amazing I think,” Mefferd said, while Gainor called Savage “one of the biggest hypocrites the earth has ever seen.”

Gainor added: “If your kids go to public school, they are being taught It Gets Better, so they are being taught that this guy is normal and a viable person to listen to when, in fact, if you’re one of those groups, conservative, Christian, Republican, something, he hates you and wants you dead.”

FRC Links Military Suicides To DADT Repeal

Echoing a statement he made two years ago, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins wrote in his daily email to his group’s members yesterday that the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and the supposed persecution of Christians in the U.S. military are draining “morality” from the armed forces and leading to an epidemic of sexual assaults and suicide,.

Perkins also blasted Defense Secretary Ash Carter for a plan to ease some recruitment standards for service members, including accepting people with minor criminal records such as drug offenses for some positions. “In the U.S. military, it might soon be criminals in -- Christians out!” he warns.

Reports have shown that the military is facing difficulties in finding recruits due to a number of factors, including a stronger economy, high obesity rates and college dropout rates. But Perkins suggests that the military would solve its recruiting woes if it simply ended progress toward LGBT rights and brought back “morality.”

“Our troops are tired of fighting two wars: America's and the culture's,” he writes.

Perkins has previously blamed military sexual assaults on the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and warned that it would damage recruiting efforts to the extent that proponents of the repeal would have the “blood of young Marines on their hands.”

In the U.S. military, it might soon be criminals in -- Christians out! That's the Pentagon's solution to the latest recruitment woes, according to Defense Secretary Ash Carter. Faced with low enlistments, the military is desperately looking for ways to attract new service members to replenish its ranks. With morale at a record low and the crackdown on values at an all-time high, recruiters have an even more challenging job these days.

Desperate for new sign-ups, Carter and others are advocating looser standards, including allowing some with minor criminal records to enlist. Blaming the numbers on the "competitive job market," Carter said the military is going to "have to work harder to compete." But the issue isn't so much a competitive job market as it is an unfriendly military. With the wars winding down, it should be even easier to meet those enlistment targets. Instead, the Pentagon is lowering the standards to meet their quotas, which will only accelerate the downward spiral of the military.

While the Left will throw a fit, the reality is no one should be surprised. In fact, FRC's General Boykin and other military experts warned this would be the result of the Obama administration's social experimentation with the military. In the wake of the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the same doors that opened for homosexuals seemed to shut in Christians' faces, as the President's hostility toward men and women of faith seeped into every aspect of military life. In more evidence that the President's policies have fundamentally transformed America,chaplains have been ousted,Bibles expelled, crosses torn down, and rainbow flags hoisted in their place.

In the absence of morality, sexual assaults have skyrocketed, suicides are through the roof, and religious liberty has vanished. Our troops are tired of fighting two wars: America's and the culture's. Congress needs to get to the bottom of these problems and fast. It's time to undo the damage done by almost seven years of social engineering on our country's finest -- or face the national security consequences.

Mat Staver: 'Demonic' Gay Rights Advocates Are Acting Like Terrorists

In an interview yesterday, Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver said that a potential fix to Indiana’s new “religious freedom” law ensuring that it would not effectively legalize discrimination would be “devastating,” comparing such a move to negotiating with terrorists.

“There is nothing to clarify and there is nothing to fix,” Staver told Jim Schneider on VCY America’s “Crosstalk.”

“This is what the homosexual lobby wants to do: they want to intimidate [Indiana Gov. Mike Pence] so much, they want to try to embarrass him into doing something that is absolutely foolish, that will promote their agenda,” Staver added.

“It’s kind of like with these terrorists, it’s hard to negotiate with terrorists because they have a zero-sum game. It’s hard to negotiate with these people who simply are irrational and are inventing things that just simply don’t exist. You’re not going to placate them by trying to come back and pass a clarification to a law that doesn’t need any clarification at all.”

Staver told host Jim Schneider that gay rights advocates are promoting “anti-Christian hatred,” warning that the gay rights movement has “given a tolerance message, and what is behind that is, frankly, demonic. It wants to literally overpower, it has no interest in protecting religious freedom, it wants to crush it.”

“This is the wakeup call for the church,” he said.

Staver said that conservative Christians in America are in the same place as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran pastor in Germany who died as a result of his opposition to Nazi rule.

The gay rights movement, Staver said, is all about “absolute intolerant bigotry, hatred towards Christians and people of faith,” and even the “criminalization of Christianity.”

“They want to literally crush religion, the free exercise of religion, and freedom,” Staver said. “That’s what this agenda is about. So I say stand your ground. This is a Bonhoeffer moment and Gov. Mike Pence better not back up on this issue.”

Religious Right Pundit: Criticism Of Indiana's Discrimination Law Will Lead To Anti-Christian Genocide

Conservative columnist John Zmirak, who serves as senior editor of televangelist James Robison’s new outlet The Stream, writes today that “the hate that has been spewed at the state of Indiana in the past week” will lead to bloodshed and violence akin to the genocidal campaigns targeting Tutsis in Rwanda and Armenians in Turkey.

He writes that gay marriage supporters are bent on vilifying all Christians to the point that society turns against them, which will “tear up the civil peace in this country, forcing millions of Americans to choose between church and state.”

“If Indiana caves and guts its religious freedom law — as Gov. Mike Pence has already promised — it will prove an equal triumph for those who are so enraged at Christian teaching that they are willing to persecute Christians,” Zmirak writes. “Should we engage in large-scale, non-violent civil disobedience, as black Americans once did in the face of Jim Crow laws? We have the numbers to bring this country to a sudden screeching halt, if we can stand up to the media’s blows and spitting.”

Sample the hate that has been spewed at the state of Indiana in the past week, and faithful Christians in recent years, by gay activists and their allies. We are “bigots,” “Neanderthals” and “haters,” whose views must be ritually rejected by anyone hoping to keep a job in today’s America — even in a Catholic high school. Where will this end? Is there a logical stopping point for this aggression, where Christians are left in peace?

History teaches that mass vilification rarely stops short of spilling blood. The French Jacobins who spent the 1780s slandering the clergy in pornographic pamphlets went on in the 1790s to slaughter Christians by the hundreds of thousands. The Turks paved the way for killing a million Armenian Christians with a wave of propaganda. The Bolsheviks followed their “anti-God” crusade of the 1920s with starvation camps and firing squads. The Communist governments of Eastern Europe obeyed the same script, as scholar Anne Applebaum documents in her sobering study The Iron Curtain. The Hutu government of Rwanda prepared for its assault on the once-powerful Tutsis by incessantly describing them as “cockroaches” on radio broadcasts, which triggered a genocide.

If the media, the law and our elite institutions succeed in lumping Christian sexual morals in with white racism, how long will it be before believing Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox (and many religious minorities) find themselves labelled as members of “extremist sects,” no more to be trusted with the care of their own children than the Branch Davidians were?



It’s stunning how quickly the demands of gay activists went from libertarian (“Don’t arrest us for sodomy”) to totalitarian (“Take part in our weddings or we’ll destroy your livelihoods.”)



If Indiana caves and guts its religious freedom law — as Gov. Mike Pence has already promised — it will prove an equal triumph for those who are so enraged at Christian teaching that they are willing to persecute Christians.

If these zealots succeed, they will tear up the civil peace in this country, forcing millions of Americans to choose between church and state. If laws or government policies beggar Christian businesses, close Christian colleges and schools and force faithful Christians into third-class citizenship — making us virtual dhimmis, like the Christian Copts in Egypt — what should we do? What should be our response now that we know what they want to do, and are overplaying their hand, but before they complete their coup d’etat?



Should we engage in large-scale, non-violent civil disobedience, as black Americans once did in the face of Jim Crow laws? We have the numbers to bring this country to a sudden screeching halt, if we can stand up to the media’s blows and spitting. Those who resist these unjust laws will be treated with all the violence and contempt that was poured out on the pro-life Operation Rescue in the 1980s and ’90s. Local cops from West Hartford, Connecticut, to Los Angeles, California, brutalized teenagers, old women, even nuns and pregnant mothers.

Matthew Hagee: Stopping Gay Marriage Is 'A Matter Of Survival'

A few weeks ago, Matthew Hagee warned on his weekly "Hagee Hotline" program that since same-sex unions cannot naturally produce children, by legalizing gay marriage "you are taking away the ability of that society to survive."

Apparently convinced that this is a compelling and intelligent argument, Hagee repeated it on yesterday's program, declaring that it is an "economical fact" that America needs more people and so allowing gay marriage will inevitably lead to the total collapse of society.

"It is impossible for same-sex marriage to do what biblical marriage does: create children," Hagee said. "Without the procreation of children, the American society economically, will fail; culturally, will fail. It is not a matter of right or privilege, it's a matter of survival":

Alan Keyes: Gay Rights May Lead To The 'Extinction Of Humanity'

Warning that the legalization of same-sex marriage will somehow jeopardize the survival of humankind, Alan Keyes writes today that states like Indiana are right to pass laws which could discriminate against gay and lesbian couples.

Keyes writes in a column at BarbWire that the purpose of marriage is “to perpetuate the human species” since it is “sourced in the authority of the Creator, and therefore antecedent to any and all humanly constructed rights.”

“Given that same sex couplings are, as such, barren,” he adds, they therefore do not have the right to marry: “For if made into a law for all, over time the concrete material manifestation of humanity would cease to exist.”

“This large-scale extinction of humanity now seems to be an acceptable goal for some elements of what I call the elitist faction,” Keyes said. “For the sake of the earth, of ecology, of environmental balance and purity, they seem to have conceived a righteous hatred against the existence of the human species, and therefore against its procreation.”

In recent years, some judges and justices in the U.S. judicial branch have construed the Constitution so as to fabricate so-called “homosexual marriage rights”. In doing so they have supported the demand that same sex couplings and those of people of different sexes be held in the same regard under the law, and be treated the same when it comes to the legal institution of marriage. When regarded strictly in term of the activities of individuals, this may appear plausible to some people. But as an artifact of just sovereign power, the law cannot be exclusively concerned with individuals when it deals with matters that affect the very nature of humanity itself. In that respect, is there a more obviously natural common good than the perpetuation of humanity as such?

There can be no dispute about the fact that, before some judges and justices in the U.S. judiciary launched their insurrection against their will, the people of the United States defined marriage in terms of the natural common good. They respected, in principle, that institution’s special (i.e., of or related to the species) purpose in relation to the survival of the human race. In this respect, marriage exactly corresponds to an activity that is existentially inseparable from the very nature of humanity, in the most common and concrete sense of the term. Thus understood, marriage is self-evidently an unalienable right, sourced in the authority of the Creator, and therefore antecedent to any and all humanly constructed rights, whatever they may be.

The organic law of the United States acknowledges the authority of the Creator as the primordial and highest authority for the exercise of rights, which is to say, for the lawful permission to do what it is right to do. Right is not sourced in human will, but in the will of the Creator. It is, as President Lincoln put it, “right, as God gives us to see the right.” Unless we mean to deny that it is right, in principle, to perpetuate the human species the right of marriage, defined in terms of that purpose, cannot be denied or disparaged by merely human laws and judgments, including the Constitution of the United States.

The Constitution’s Ninth Amendment simply acknowledges, in a general way, what the unalienable right of marriage makes manifest in a concrete and specific way. The judges and justices who assert and demand enforcement of “marriage equality” for same sex couplings therefore face the burden of proving that, like the marriage couplings of men with women, same sex couplings are essential to the concrete perpetuation of the species as a whole. Given that same sex couplings are, as such, barren, this burden appears, on the face of it, impossible to sustain; and of course the U.S. courts have not done so.

No amount of reasoning as to the subjective gratification individuals derive from the spiritual, emotional or physical aspect of same sex couplings is relevant to this burden of proof. It has to do with humanity as a concrete fact, not as a subjective abstraction. This explains the general prejudice of mankind against the institutionalization of such couplings. For if made into a law for all, over time the concrete material manifestation of humanity would cease to exist.

This large-scale extinction of humanity now seems to be an acceptable goal for some elements of what I call the elitist faction. For the sake of the earth, of ecology, of environmental balance and purity, they seem to have conceived a righteous hatred against the existence of the human species, and therefore against its procreation. This may seem right according to their will. But the standard of right on which lawfulness depends, according to the declaration and ordinance by which the people of the United States constitute a nation, is God’s will, not theirs.

Pat Robertson: Obama Thinks He Is The Messiah

Televangelist Pat Robertson scolded President Obama today for his new plan to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in order to fight climate change, telling viewers of “The 700 Club” that Obama is a “rogue president” who is subverting the Constitution.

“He says, ‘I am a Messiah, I am a leader, I am anointed, I’m gifted and I’m going to make my way on climate change, I’m going to make my way on immigration, I’m going to make my way on nuclear negotiations, I’m going to make my way on all of the other things that the Republicans and the majority of the people don’t want because I am gifted, I am the Messiah,’” Robertson said. “We should haven’t a leader like that.”

Robertson lamented that Obama is dividing the country and “ripping the framework of America” apart in front of “the eyes of everybody.”

Matthew Hagee: The Fight Against Gay Rights 'Is A War Between Good And Evil'

On yesterday's "Hagee Hotline," televangelist Matthew Hagee called upon viewers to contact their legislators in support of legislation like Indiana's "religious freedom" law, warning that if they don't, "we will lose the battle for righteousness in America."

"We have turned out back on values that have made us great," Hagee said, "and we have embraced the values that deteriorate society. We accept what others in past civilizations would have called appalling and yet we call appalling any individual who is willing to stand up and speak truth based on their convictions."

After asserting that God is very clear in both the Old and New Testament that homosexuality is "an abomination," Hagee called upon "people of faith and those who love truth" to contact their legislators in support of efforts to fight gay rights because this is a war between good and evil.

"Believe me, it is a war," he said. "It is a war between good and evil. It is a war between light and darkness. It is a war in which you have to make up your mind to either fully engage or become an ally of the Adversary who would like to see a lie become a truth and the truth become a lie":

Right-Wing Pundit: 'Gov. Pence Is The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Of 2015'

Writing today in WorldNetDaily, Liberty Counsel communications director Charla Bansley proposed that pastors and “those victimized by religious intolerance” from all around the country hold a massive rally in Indianapolis to defend Indiana’s ‘religious freedom’ law.

“Gov. Pence is the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. of 2015,” the Religious Right activist wrote.

She also made the erroneous claim that the Indiana law is just like other versions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Can conservatives responding to the recent controversy in Indiana over religious freedom learn anything from liberals about messaging? After the Michael Brown shooting, liberal leaders from the left, such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and secular progressive communities from across America seized the opportunity and flocked to Ferguson, Missouri, to take over the narrative, blaming Brown’s death on “institutional racism.” Universities as far away as George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, held diversity discussions. College students from all over the country joined the crowds walking the streets chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot.”

Today, the church must contend for the faith and the faithful in like manner. What churches and religious universities will take a page out of the liberal playbook to rally, to march, to hold candle vigils and to speak out? What pastors will go to Indianapolis to stand by Gov. Mike Pence and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act? Which organizations will help pay the way for those victimized by religious intolerance – bakers, photographers, venue owners – to make their way to Indianapolis? When will we as a church begin matching our words with action? If not now, then when?



Pence said Sunday that the new state law “is not about discrimination. This is about empowering people to confront government overreach.” Unfortunately, those words went over the heads of most people watching the interview. Homosexual activists went to the streets claiming the law would legalize discrimination, and Americans believed the false narrative. The truth is a federal RFRA was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1993, and 19 other states have passed similar laws, but not one case of discrimination exists. The real cases of discrimination are the religious businesses who have been sued for refusing to participate in a same-sex wedding: the Catholic B&B owners who didn’t want to host a same-sex wedding in Vermont, the baker in Oregon, the photographer in New Mexico, the florist in Washington and a host of others.

Gov. Pence is the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. of 2015, courageously defending the bakers, photographers, florists, ministers, county clerks, and owners of wedding venues who, after a lifetime of acquiring skills and building businesses, have seen their livelihoods destroyed, forced to pay exorbitant fines and even threatened with jail.

Pat Robertson: Americans Must Resist 'Totalitarian Dictators' Of 'The Gay Lobby'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson denounced elected officials and business leaders for “caving” to the “gay lobby” in criticizing a new “religious liberty” law in Indiana.

“They’re not liberal, they’re totalitarian dictators,” Robertson said of the law’s critics. “They’re going to force you into their mold, they’re going to make you conform to political correctness, they’re going to make you do what the Left thinks is right, they’re going to make you acknowledge homosexual marriage, they’re going to make you embrace lifestyles that you think are anti-biblical despite your religious belief.”

Robertson continued: “The fact that these gays are making such a fuss of it and businesses are caving, businesses all over the country are caving, they are terrified of the gay lobby, terrified of the gay lobby. Don’t we have any backbone left in this country?”

Robertson’s comments followed a CBN News report which falsely suggested that Indiana’s new law is no different from previous federal and state versions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Bryan Fischer: Co-Pilot's Alleged Homosexuality May Explain German Plane Crash

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer seized upon a news report that Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who is believed to have deliberately crashed a German flight last week, killing everyone on board, had "trawled gay porn websites and sites relating to suicide" to raise the possibility that Lubitz's alleged homosexuality may have played a role in the crash.

As Fischer explained, "it's striking that one of the health risks that's associated with homosexual behavior is an increased risk of suicidal ideation ... Now we are discovering that, perhaps, [Lubitz] was involved in homosexuality, was taking drugs for depression, and perhaps that would explain his suicidal crash of that plane":

Lubitz had a girlfriend at the time of the crash, a fact that seemed to be lost on Fischer, who has suggested in the past that homosexuality is a chosen behavior rather than an innate orientation.

Indiana Anti-Gay Activist: We Are Victims Of 'Spiritual Warfare'

Yesterday, Micah Clark of the American Family Association’s Indiana chapter, who helped craft Indiana’s new “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” and even stood right behind Gov. Mike Pence during the signing ceremony, said that any effort to clarify that the act will not sanction discrimination would “totally destroy” the law.

Clark repeated that message today on “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” where he told guest host Fred Jackson that his state is right now bogged down in “spiritual warfare” over the fate of the law, which Clark falsely claimed was the exact same law as RFRA statutes enacted on the federal level and in other states.

While he helped pass the broad, controversial law that effectively allows businesses to discriminate against certain customers, such as gays and lesbians, Clark said that Religious Right activists like hisemlf are the real victims in the fight.

“The first thing you have to do is pray, because this is a spiritual war,” Clark told listeners. “There is no doubt about that, by the Twitter comments I get, by the email comments and threats from the opposition, some pornographic things that are out there and obscene things being said. This is a campaign of fear and lies and so this is a spiritual war that people must pray about.”

“I said a few years ago, ‘if we won’t stand for marriage, what will we stand for,’ but if we won’t stand for our own religious freedom, what will we stand for as a church?” he added.

Fox's Todd Starnes Links Obama To East Village Fire Selfie

Fox News pundit Todd Starnes is joining his network colleagues in linking President Obama to a tourist who took a selfie at the site of an explosion in the East Village.

Because one of the women who took a selfie in the East Village worked as a field organizer for Obama’s 2008 campaign for four months, Starnes wondered during his radio bulletin today if she was simply taking a cue from the president.

“The self-absorbed generation, ladies and gentlemen,” Starnes said. “Maybe she was just emulating the man she helped get elected to the White House. I mean, how can we forget President Obama taking selfies during Nelson Mandela’s funeral — a funeral!”

Of course, the supposedly scandalous Obama selfies occurred at a celebratory memorial service, not during Mandela’s funeral.

Beck: Criticism Of Indiana's 'Religious Freedom' Law Will Lead To Concentration Camps

Glenn Beck opened his radio program today by continuing his defense of the recently passed Indiana law that allows business owners to discriminate in the name of "religious freedom" by warning that attacks on such laws will lead to people being placed in concentration camps and killed.

Declaring that "gay activists will boycott, will make it uncomfortable, they'll smear them, they'll just ratchet up the hate" against any business owner who refuses to provide services to a same-sex wedding in an attempt to drive them out of business, Beck insisted that everyone just has to "heal our hearts" and realize that religious business owners are not motivated by hate but rather by their faith.

"Let's stop forcing each other to do things," Beck begged. "You don't change anything. That ends up in concentration camps. You just start grinding and grinding and grinding away until you're in separate worlds and nobody talks to each other and then, whoever has the power, round 'em up and kill 'em because those guys are the problem."

"That's how it happens," he said, which prompted his co-host Stu Burguiere to quip that Beck managed to make it a mere fourteen minutes into the radio show today before he started warning about people being rounded up and locked away in concentration camps:

Rick Wiles: Military Is Preparing 'A Round-Up Of Patriotic Men'

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles is embracing radical conspiracy theories about the Army’s upcoming Jade Helm 15 training exercise, telling listeners of Friday’s edition of “Trunews” that the drill is “the preparation for or the actual implementation of a round-up of patriotic men who have the capcity to influence and inspire the citizenry to resist a coup against the Republic.” 

He added that the training could be a “two-month-long Night of the Long Knives.” (Wiles similarly warned last year that the government will unleash the Ebola virus on America “as the cover to round up patriots who resist the takedown of the Republic.”)

“Several years ago, Satan launched his D-Day invasion and the church at large has no idea of the scope and depth of the Satanic, military operation against it, and make no mistake, this is a Satanic military operation against the body of Christ,” Wiles said.

This demonic attack apparently includes Right Wing Watch: “Satan’s people are intimidating Christians, telling us to shut up; well, the Holy Spirt is telling us, ‘speak-up.’ This radio program is monitored daily by the extreme left, the enemies of the Cross, many of you may be indifferent about whether we continue or not but I assure you, the far-left is not indifferent about the future viability of ‘Trunews.’ They want to bring us down. How many other radio programs are they monitoring like they monitor ‘Trunews’? What does that tell you? They consider ‘Trunews’ to be a serious threat.”

Jeffress: 9/11 Was God's Judgment On America For Abortion

Right-wing megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress spoke at Liberty University's convocation this morning, where he told the student audience that America's complete collapse was unavoidable, thanks to Supreme Court rulings banning organized prayer and Bible study in public schools, legalizing abortion, and striking down bans of gay sex.

These rulings, Jeffress declared, have "so weakened the moral and spiritual infrastructure of our nation that our collapse is inevitable," explaining that the 9/11 terrorist attack was God's judgment upon America for the sin of abortion.

"All you have to do is look in history to see what God does with a nation that sanctions the killing of its own children," he said. "Just look at the nation of Israel ... Because they got involved in the worship of Moloch, the pagan god, and they sacrificed their children on the altar, what did God do? He raised up the godless Babylonians and Assyrians to bring judgement on his own people."

"People ask me all the time," Jeffress continued, "'Well, I just don't understand why God wouldn't protect our nation and he would allow these radical Muslims in 2001 to kill 3,000 of our citizens and why God doesn't protect us. Surely, God doesn't use pagans to bring judgment upon his own people, does he?'"

"Just read the Bible," he said. "God will not allow sin to go unpunished and he certainly won't allow the sacrifice of children to go unpunished":
