Matt Barber: Anti-Gay Activists Facing 'Water Hoses' Like MLK

Is Matt Barber secretly a gay rights advocate who has gone under deep cover to make the Religious Right look absolutely ridiculous?

It seems that might be the case, judging by his latest column, titled “The Coming Christian Revolt.”

Featuring a picture of African American demonstrators being shot with water hoses behind a superimposed rainbow image, Barber writes that the anti-gay Right is the direct descendant of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement, and must similarly engage in “widespread civil disobedience” in the face of water hoses.

From behind a smoking sniper rifle high atop his ivory tower peers the secular “progressive.” He surveys his many victims, strewn across the American landscape below and mockingly sneers, “War on Christianity? What war on Christianity?”

He then resumes shooting, all the while insisting that those uncooperative Christians who scatter for cover behind the word of God and the U.S. Constitution somehow suffer from a “persecution complex” (the baker, the photographer, the florist, the innkeeper, the Christian school administrator, etc.).



For every law, regulation, activist court ruling or presidential edict that demands Christians violate their sincerely held religious beliefs and adopt a postmodern, moral relativist way of life, there increases, in exact proportion, the likelihood of widespread civil disobedience – disobedience of the sort we haven’t seen since the civil rights struggles of the 1950s and ’60s.

Indeed, if, in the spirit of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., we, his fellow Christian travelers, must again face the water hoses, then face them we shall.



While there are those who will give way out of fear, weakness or a desire to conform to the world, there are many others who will not. Christians must peacefully come together, lock arms and redouble our resistance to evil.

Even when that evil is adorned with the presidential seal and signature.

WND's Molotov Mitchell Is Running For State Senate In North Carolina

Jason 'Molotov' Mitchell, a biblical law proponent and birther who works for WorldNetDaily, is challenging a top Democratic member of North Carolina’s state senate.

Mitchell declares himself a champion of privacy and “personal freedom,” which is odd because in a 2010 video commentary — since made private — Mitchell declared his support for Uganda’s notorious anti-gay bill which at the time would have made being gay in some cases a crime punishable by death.

He is also behind a film focusing on a fictional terrorist group which murders abortion providers to raise awareness about “black genocide.”

One of WND’s edgiest voices is challenging a liberal stronghold in North Carolina by running for state senator on a platform of personal freedom for everyone – liberal, conservative or otherwise.

“I am the GOP cruise missile, and I intend to crush the Obama clone in Raleigh,” says Molotov Mitchell, who appears in WND each week with his “For the Record” video column.

Mitchell is taking on Democrat State Senate Minority Whip Josh Stein in November. Stein is a staunch liberal, whose record includes votes against several pro-life bills during the last legislative session and strong support for same-sex marriage, having received an award from the Equality NC Foundation for his advocacy on the issue.

“Stein has long been considered one of the state’s strongest allies for LGBT equality,” the foundation said in a press release. “The progressive Democrat actively worked to include sexual orientation and gender identity in K-12 anti-bullying legislation.”



“I intend to fight for privacy, business and personal freedom,” Mitchell declares.



“That’s where I really resonate, especially on the issue of privacy,” Mitchell told WND. “We have had a lot of people from the left come out and tell us that while they can’t admit it publicly they are going to vote for Molotov Mitchell.”



“In my opinion, allowing firearms in most places while banning them in educational facilities is essentially a contract with killers,” Mitchell explained. “We have essentially told the bad guys we’ll make you a deal: If you leave us alone and let us carry our firearms in our businesses, our homes and on the streets, we’ll let you have our kids. Leave us alone and you can shoot up the school if you want – and that’s exactly what the bad guys have done.”



“I am a big proponent of leaving people alone,” he continued. “I used to want to see people’s lives regulated more to the ‘right,’ but now I believe people, especially at the local level, have the right to decide what is best for them and their culture.”

“While I believe the Christian way is always best, I also believe if you have the people and you have the votes to disagree with that, then that’s OK with me,” Mitchell said. “Your community can try whatever you want to try. Up in Dearborn, Michigan, they are trying Islamic principles. While I expect it to go down in flames, I am now at the point where I support their right to do that as long as they don’t harm other people.”

Klingenschmitt: 'Penalty' For Homosexuality Is ‘Spiritual Death’

Gordon Klingenschmitt, who is the GOP nominee for a state legislative seat in Colorado, is obviously not pleased with the Colorado county clerks who have started issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

On his “Pray In Jesus Name” program yesterday, Klingenschmitt reminded the clerks that “homosexuality is not only an abomination, not only worthy of death,” but comes with a “penalty” that amounts to “spiritual death.”

“They say, ‘Oh, it’s all about love.’ No, it’s about lust, it’s about selfishness,” he said. “They don’t care about the other person, they want self-gratification for themselves, contrary to their own nature, contrary to what God designed for them. And they receive in themselves the penalty for that error.”

“The penalty for that sin is not just STDS or some biological curse, not just AIDS, but they receive into themselves the demonic spirit that rules their hearts, and with that comes ultimately the consequence of spiritual death.”

Klingenschmitt adds that he is just the “messenger” when he tells gay people that “you’re going to hell.”

Don Feder Warns 'Human WMD' Obama Will Destroy America

Don Feder of the World Congress of Families is out with a new column warning that "the human WMD in the White House" is a Marxist/Muslim radical bringing about the "collapse of civilization."

Naturally, Feder claims that gay rights, immigration and abortion rights are Obama's tools to bring about the destruction of the country, noting that "if Cultural Marxism was a religion – which, come to think of it, it is – abortion and contraception would be its sacraments.”

Where will the human WMD in the White House do the most damage – the economy or national security?

Since Obama became president, 27 million jobs bit the dust. The labor-force participation rate (the percentage of available workers who are actually working) is the lowest in 36 years.

The National Council of La Raza's favorite gringo doesn't know or care how many thousands of "Dreamers" streaming across our border each month have communicable diseases or are criminals or terrorists traveling incognito. He's given up even the pretense of trying to control the border. It's all Congress's fault anyway for not passing a comprehensive amnesty – which will work as well at keeping out illegals as dousing a fire with gasoline.
...

More than an income-redistributionist, an ideologue who believes borders are mean-spirited, or a connoisseur of Muslim prayer-calls, Barack Obama is a Cultural Marxist – an expression that always draws snickers from the establishment media. And yet nothing better describes the left's corruption of Western culture and the coming collapse of civilization.

...

Cultural Marxists strive to replace Judeo-Christian morality with sexual license (sex divorced from values), the influence of faith on society with the marginalization of religion, and the family with isolated individuals who have as few ties as possible to past, present and future – the imperial self, unencumbered by tradition, a fixed moral code or family obligations.

While he didn't start us on this road – the journey was well underway before his birth – Obama has worked overtime to makes Gramsci's vision a reality.

...

"One of the remaining human rights challenges of our times" –(then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the United Nations, on mainstreaming homosexuality) Obama's commitment to the LGBT agenda earned him the honorific "America's first gay president" from Newsweek, in a 2012 cover story. The White House issues regular reports on the administration's "ongoing efforts to protect and promote the human rights of" blah, blah, blah and blah "people globally." This includes hosting the first Global Forum on LGBT/Human Rights, Secretary of State Kerry appointing five openly homosexual ambassadors, and US embassies flying the rainbow flag for pride month. In his remarks to the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, Attorney General Eric Holder called the Boy Scouts' refusal to have scout masters who are sexually attracted to adolescent boys, "a relic of an age of prejudice" (the era of Judeo-Christian morality). Earlier this year, Obama's UN team even tried to replace pro-family language in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (which recognizes the traditional family as "the natural and fundamental group unit of society") with one that claims the family "expresses diversity of individual preferences." Next Obama will try to repeal the laws of nature (which, admittedly, are discriminatory) by executive order.

...

Franklin Graham said the president and AG clone have "turned their backs on God and His standards." For Obama, gay rights is a two-pronged attack – by making "sexual ethics" the ultimate oxymoron, and giving the left another excuse to persecute Christians (a Colorado baker here, a New Mexico photographer there). In 2012, 62% of those who attend church occasionally or never voted for the "totally secularized man," while 59% of Americans who attend services weekly voted for Romney. According to Pew Research, in the past 5 years alone, the "religiously unaffiliated" went from just over 15% to just under 20% of the total population. Obama's war on religion pays unexpected dividends.

...

In Obama's America, sex is divorced from both values and consequences. (If Cultural Marxism was a religion – which, come to think of it, it is – abortion and contraception would be its sacraments.) Respect for alternative lifestyles is mandatory. Marriage is a free-form institution, which "expresses the diversity of individual preferences." Adhering to Judeo-Christian ethics is punished by hefty fines and sensitivity training.

Sandy Rios Suggests Treating Refugee Kids Like Lepers, Warns They Will Cause Death 'In Huge Numbers'

On her American Family Radio program this morning, Sandy Rios joined fellow anti-immigrant activists in spreading overblown fears about diseases being carried by the Central American refugees at the southern border.

Rios suggested that the child refugees should be quarantined like lepers used to be. “I think of biblical times, the lepers were separated — right or wrong — they were separated,” she said. "It was understood that leprosy was so contagious. So there’s nothing wrong with wanting to separate your children. We used to quarantine people when they had diseases.”

“We’re such a healthy people that we’ve forgotten what it’s like to be diseased and die from those diseases in huge numbers,” she said, “but we’re going to learn, I think, again.”

She went on to lament that the children are being transported in the “same planes that you and I fly in.”

“How do we know about lice and disease before they get on public transportation?” she added.

WorldNetDaily Pundit Thinks Americans Must Dislike America Because They Didn't Elect Sarah Palin

Clearly, most Americans must lack an "American Spirit," explains one WorldNetDaily columnist, because how else would one explain why voters didn't back Sarah Palin in 2008 and still mostly view her unfavorably?

Selena Owens of WND writes​ today that unlike President Obama, Sarah Palin "embodies" the American spirit and "belongs to We the People and has absolutely nothing to do with political pandering."

"The American spirit is embodied in national political figures such as Sarah Palin," Owens gushes, warning that if Republicans don't embrace Palin's call to impeach President Obama, then "we forfeit America."

I’m wondering where the American spirit is these days, because I’m encountering conversations and commentary pushing the notion that Sarah Palin, a prominent conservative politician and noted tea party champion of We the People, should concede and hush her mouths for the sake of Republicanism.

...

Specifically, I’m speaking of the former governor’s choice to proudly display some American spirit and tell Congress to impeach Barack Obama.

Yes, I am on the Palin bandwagon in this issue. Our country is at stake.

Sarah Palin is calling for Obama’s impeachment, citing the immigration crisis as “the last straw that makes the battered wife say ‘no mas.’” Barack Obama has proven time and again that he couldn’t care less about American principles, laws, or citizens. Impeachment has been the rally cry of conservatives for a few years, even from prominent leaders like Allen West and other congressmen. Barack Obama needs to go – or we forfeit America.

...

Sarah Palin is a prominent political figure who belongs to We the People and has absolutely nothing to do with political pandering. She makes waves and people take notice – especially Republicans who want to just go along to get along and try to ensure that their party’s image is not tarnished and that they can “safely” ensure votes by not allowing anyone to disturb their plans. So they want Palin to shut up and not rock the boat. Specifically, House Speaker John “I disagree” Boehner.

You would think the GOP would know better to expect anything less than a challenging confrontation and bold patriotism from the gutsy governor. Apparently, they don’t.

...

Obviously, the American spirit is nowhere in this current administration. Think Obamacare. Benghazi. IRS scandal. NSA spying. Immigration. Open borders. Gun control.

...

The American spirit is embodied in national political figures such as Sarah Palin – and others – who fight for the American people. The American spirit is embodied in local tea party leaders in Mississippi and Connecticut and Tennessee and anyone else who champions adherence to the two most fantastic documents revered worldwide: The Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.

Gabrielle Giffords' Husband Urges Lawmakers To Reject Support From Gun Owners Of America

Earlier this year, we reported on Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt’s response to hearing that Rep. Carolyn Maloney was afraid of getting shot by a member of his group.

“That’s probably a healthy fear for them to have,” Pratt said of members of Congress who fear assassination, in an interview with radio host Bill Cunningham. “You know, I’m kind of glad that’s in the back of their minds. Hopefully they’ll behave.”

This week, the quote made it into Rolling Stone’s great profile of Pratt’s career of extremism and caught the eye of Mark Kelly, whose wife Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was critically injured in an assassination attempt in 2011.

Understandably upset by Pratt’s comfort with threats of gun violence to members of Congress, Kelly issued statement yesterday urging lawmakers to reject contributions from GOA.

“No matter where you stand on policies that reduce gun violence, Larry Pratt’s view that our leaders should live in fear of gun violence is an affront to all responsible gun owners, Gabby and me included,” Kelly wrote.

“No candidate for office should accept the support of Larry Pratt’s organization again.”

UPDATE: Rep. Maloney has called for an investigation into Pratt's comments, which, of course, GOA has responded to by accusing her of being "foolish" and lacking an "understanding...regarding key historical documents."
