Jerry Boykin Says Not Letting Him Speak At A Prayer Breakfast Violates Other People's First Amendment Rights

Last week, the Family Research Council's Jerry Boykin was disinvited from a prayer breakfast that was to be held at Fort Riley in Kansas, following a complaint from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation highlighting his long history of extremism and bigotry.

As usual, Boykin has been playing the victim and took his latest tale of persecution to Glenn Beck's radio program this morning, where he insisted that not only were his First Amendment rights violated by revoking his speaking invitation, but so were the First Amendment rights of those who wanted to hear him speak at the prayer breakfast.

Seemingly unaware that the First Amendment does not guarantee that people can say anything they want without ever facing consequences, nor mean than Christians are entitled to hear their preferred speaker address any event they attend, Boykin predictably blamed the whole thing on President Obama.

"They're robbing the soldiers at Fort Riley of their First Amendment rights," he stated. "They're robbing these soldiers of their First Amendment rights and this is the condition of Obama's military. This is what you should expect. This is what your sons and daughters are living with every day in a military that is now suppressing their First Amendment rights."

"It's part of the environment that Obama has created here in America," Boykin continued. "[When] my talk gets canceled there, what you've done is you've robbed all of those people who wanted to come to that prayer breakfast and hear what I had to say, you robbed them of their First Amendment rights and this is what we're seeing all over our military today and it's a result of the environment that Obama has created."

Boykin declared that the decision to remove him from this prayer breakfast because of a complaint from the MRFF raises the question of "how do you destroy ISIS when you can't stand up to something like this?"

Rohrer: Same-Sex Marriage Ushering In Divine Judgment On America

Sam Rohrer, president of the American and Pennsylvania Pastors Networks, joined Jim Schneider on his “Crosstalk” radio program on Friday to discuss the legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide. Rohrer, a former member of Pennsylvania’s legislature, argued that “God’s law must always reign supreme” and that due to its acceptance of same-sex marriage the U.S. will “go nowhere but down.”

“One of the marks of a nation that is walking away from God that will incur God’s judgement is a nation whose systems and functions and elements of government proclaim to be true what is false and proclaim to be false what is true,” Rohrer said, claiming this occurred when the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage.

“No court has the authority to overturn what God says and what God defines to be a matter of marriage in this case, so that’s the clearest example where man’s law counters what God has said is what something ought to be,” Rohrer said. “God’s law must always reign supreme.”

Rohrer and Schneider accused the government of attempting to force acceptance of same-sex marriage on churches, and Rohrer warned this will lead to America’s demise.

“Only by the grace of God and the help of some human institutions of law that have helped to step in that have, at this point, held it off, but this is the direction that they’re going,” Rohrer said. “Any nation that throws God off and says, ‘We don’t need God’ or ‘We don’t care what God says, as a matter of fact, we’re gonna stick our fingers in his eye and redefine what he says,’ we’ll ultimately find that God will judge that nation — which I believe that God’s judgment is on our nation right now — but ultimately once that happens, you go nowhere but down.”

Last year Rohrer called Russian President Vladimir Putin “the moral leader of the world” for his crackdown on homosexuality.

Kelli Ward: There Is 'Almost An Occupation Along The Border'

After appearing on Alex Jones’ extremist radio show, Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward, who is challenging U.S. Sen. John McCain in the upcoming GOP primary, called in yesterday to “Trunews,” the End Times program hosted by unhinged conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles.

Ward, who “has promoted fears about ‘chemtrails’ and rallied behind anti-government icon Cliven Bundy during his standoff with law enforcement,” told Wiles that she is squarely behind Donald Trump’s border wall plan, claiming that people who live on the U.S.-Mexican border have been “terrorized” and are facing “horrific” conditions.

“We are allowing, basically, almost an occupation along the border and it’s got to stop,” she said.

Daubenmire Criticizes Churches For Embracing Diversity, 'The Devil'

On his “Pass the Salt” program Thursday, Ohio-based Religious Right activist “Coach” Dave Daubenmire criticized Christian churches for supporting LGBT people and people of color, calling diversity “the devil” and a threat to white Christians.

He also distanced Christianity from Judaism, claiming that “Jews without Jesus are lost” and that the [inaccurate] phrase “Judeo-Christian” is used by Christians because they “don’t want to offend the Jews.”

After showing a documentary on the threat of "white genocide", Daubenmire warned that there is a movement afoot to destroy "white, Christian, heterosexual men" because they are the ones who "have spread the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world, and if we can get them silenced, the Gospel is silenced."

Daubenmire blasted Christian churches for their growing acceptance of LGBT people and people of different ethnicities.

“I just saw today on the internet, some big Christian singer — I don’t know who he, don’t know his name ‘cause I don’t follow that stuff — came out as a homo and the Church is embracing him,” Daubenmire said. “Embracing the homo. But see, it’s another minority that we’re being taught to embrace. Now, most of us probably feel a little bit uncomfortable talking about white folks, and that’s what they’ve done to us, see.”

“It’s only the white, Christian, heterosexual male that can save the world,” Daubenmire said, only to immediately correct himself: “We can’t save the world, that was a terrible phrase. We’re the only ones that can contend for Western civilization. We are it.” 

“Why are they bringing these Muslims here?” Daubenmire asked. “Wait a minute, why do they hate Trump? It’s a spiritual war raging in front of us, and who is the number one acceptor of diversity? You got it, that big steeple down the road. They bought, again, into the lie of the devil. See, the devil will never come frontal and tell you what he’s gonna do. He comes in like an angel of light. ‘Oh, we’re diverse and we love all people.’” 

Daubenmire said the U.S. will be minority white nation by 2050 and warned that with this demographic change, “Judeo-Christian values and principles go out the window. Western civilization — we don’t like to say this —  was founded and settled by white WASPs.”  He cited Europe’s diverse population and London’s Muslim mayor. “It’s coming to a city near you,” he said. 

As part of this spiritual war, Daubenmire said, society aims for “the elimination of the white, Christian, heterosexual male, at least his voice, his right to speak.”

Daubenmire also rejected the idea of “Judeo-Christian values,” insisting that people must stop using the term because “it’s white Christians that spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, not white Jews. It’s white Christians.”

“We say ‘Judeo-Christian’ because we don’t want to offend the Jews,” Daubenmire argued, again asking himself, “Jews — oh, Lord do I have to say it? Jews without Jesus are lost. They’re lost. They’re just as lost as the Muslims. It’s Christian values. Christ-centered values, not Judeo-Christian values. We understand our roots. We understand the roots of Christianity. We understand that we’ve come out of Judaism. We understand that. We understand that. But we’re not a Judeo-Christian society, we’re a Christian society.”

Pat Robertson: Marriage Equality Makes It Harder To Fight 'Radical Islam And The Other Forces Of Secularism'

In August of last year, shortly after the Supreme Court handed down the landmark Obergefell marriage equality ruling, televangelist Pat Robertson discussed the ruling with Steve Strang, the founder of the Pentecostal magazine Charisma, on his podcast.

Robertson warned that “the homosexuals don’t want equality, they don’t want equal treatment, what they want is to destroy everybody who disagrees with them.” He predicted that there will be “a vendetta” against “any organization that disagrees with homosexuality,” saying that “what was done to Bob Jones University, that’s just a warm-up of what’s going to happen unless there’s something dramatic that takes place.” (Bob Jones University lost its tax exempt status in the 1980s because of its rules barring interracial dating.)

Robertson told Strang that with rulings like Obergefell, the Supreme Court has broken down America’s defenses against “radical Islam and the other forces of secularism trying to destroy us”:

The Supreme Court, to think that we’ve got five men and women, five unelected people who are controlling of the moral destiny of this nation and they’re stripping us of the defenses that we have to have against radical Islam and the other forces of secularism trying to destroy us. The Supreme Court is making it more and more difficult to assert these foundational values.

Bryan Fischer: Trump's Racist Attacks On Judge Are 'Legitimate' Because The Judge Might Be Racist

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer declared that it is entirely appropriate for Donald Trump to launch racist attacks against the judge who is overseeing one of the court cases involving his Trump University because the judge himself might be racist.

Fischer insisted that Trump is not racist but that Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who was born in Indiana to parents who came from Mexico, may be racist because he was once a member of La Raza Lawyers of California, which is California's Latino bar association.

Trump having to go before a judge like Curiel, Fischer stated, is like a black defendant having to go before a judge who was in the Ku Klux Klan.

"The real question is not whether Donald Trump is a racist," Fischer said, "but whether the judge who's handling his case is and I think it's legitimate for Donald Trump to have questions about that. I'm not saying the judge is a racist either; I don't know enough to know, but I think there are legitimate questions about his ability to be impartial, objective and neutral."

So, in Fischer's view, Trump launching overtly racist attacks against a judge does not mean that Trump is racist but apparently being of Mexican heritage means that the judge might be racist. 

Diamond & Silk: Trump Facing Mexican-American Judge Like Black Defendant Facing All-White Jury

Diamond & Silk, the YouTube duo who have become outspoken Donald Trump supporters and have spoken at a number of his campaign events, defended Trump’s criticism of the judge hearing a fraud case against Trump University yesterday, saying that Trump appearing before a Mexican-American judge is just like a black defendant facing an all-white jury.

“Well, first of all, you know the judge is biased,” Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway told Newsmax’s J.D. Hayworth. “You know, he’s Mexican, he’s of Mexican descent, or his heritage is Mexican. And here’s the deal. It’s just like when you walk into a courtroom [as a] defendant and the jury is all white or vice versa, or when a defense team is defending a black client with an all-white jury.”

Avid Donald Trump fan Ann Coulter made a similar argument on Twitter last week:

Steve King: 'Good Amount' Of Trump Policy Is 'A Copy-And-Paste From Things That I've Done'

Steve King, the Iowa GOP congressman who once said that DREAM Act beneficiaries are mostly drug runners with “calves the size of cantaloupes because they’ve been hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert,” said yesterday that he expects to be “deeply engaged” in immigration policy if Donald Trump is to become president, boasting that a “good amount” of the immigration policies on Trump’s website are “a copy-and-paste from things that I’ve done.”

King told Jeff Angelo, who was guest-hosting the Iowa talk radio program “Mickelson in the Morning,” that his legislative priorities in the next Congress would depend on who is elected president.

“If it’s Hillary, I’ll be playing a lot of defense because she’ll be pouring an agenda at us,” he said. “And if it’s Trump, then we’ve got an opportunity to move another direction. So, let’s just say, the agenda is going to be continue to kill off bad ideas. And if it’s Trump it will be sort his ideas, but I expect to be deeply engaged in the immigration legislation that would just certainly come and in shaping a fence, a wall and a fence on the southern border. A good amount of what’s on his website is a copy-and-paste from things that I’ve done, and we’ll get along on the immigration, I think, without any problem.”

King also said that he would “push hard for a balanced budget amendment” because if an amendment isn’t ratified, “the movement to do a constitutional convention for that purpose is just going to push one on us anyway.”

We will wait to see if Trump takes up King’s idea of installing an electrified fence at the southern border.

Pat Buchanan: Stop 'The Lynching' Of Donald Trump Over Racist Attack On Judge

Pat Buchanan is defending Donald Trump for launching a racist attack on the judge overseeing one of the court cases involving his Trump University, writing in a column today that Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Mexican heritage is likely to play a role in the case involving whether Trump’s fake school used fraudulent practices.

Buchanan, whose record on race issues is so bad that even Trump himself once called his writings “disgusting” and “sick,” said that Trump’s criticism of Judge Curiel is part of a long and proud American tradition, comparing it to the time President Obama criticized the Citizens United decision during a State of the Union address.

Those critical of Trump, he said, simply support “the lynching of The Donald.”

Before the lynching of The Donald proceeds, what exactly was it he said about that Hispanic judge?

Stated succinctly, Donald Trump said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over a class-action suit against Trump University, is sticking it to him. And the judge’s bias is likely rooted in the fact that he is of Mexican descent.

Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific?

Just this. First, Trump has a perfect right to be angry about the judge’s rulings and to question his motives. Second, there are grounds for believing Trump is right.

On May 27, Curiel, at the request of the Washington Post, made public plaintiff accusations against Trump University – that the whole thing was a scam. The Post, which Bob Woodward tells us has 20 reporters digging for dirt in Trump’s past, had a field day.

And who is Curiel?

An appointee of President Obama, he has for years been associated with the La Raza Lawyers Association of San Diego, which supports pro-illegal immigrant organizations.

Set aside the folly of letting Clinton surrogates like the Post distract him from the message he should be delivering, what did Trump do to be smeared by a bipartisan media mob as a “racist”?



Obama himself attacked the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address, with the justices sitting right in front of him.

But Trump’s real hanging offense was that he brought up the judge’s ancestry, as the son of Mexican immigrants, implying that he was something of a judicial version of Univision’s Jorge Ramos.

Apparently, it is now not only politically incorrect but, in Newt Gingrich’s term, “inexcusable” to bring up the religious, racial or ethnic background of a judge, or suggest this might influence his actions on the bench.

But these things matter.

NOM's Brian Brown: Obama Pushing 'Insane' Policies Because He Thinks He's A God

National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown, recently selected to head the global anti-gay World Congress of Families, is trying to drum up a crowd for this year’s March for Marriage, scheduled for June 25 in Washington, D.C. It has been a tough couple of years for NOM, and Brown’s frustration is palpable in his latest email pitch:

We're asking supporters from all over the country to make a special effort to attend this year's March to protest the US Supreme Court's illegitimate, anti-constitutional ruling redefining marriage, to object to the Obama administration's outrageous attempts to impose the gender-bending agenda of LGBT extremists and to call Congress to account to do something about this crisis.

The March for Marriage has been held for several years now, though it has never attracted a huge crowd, and it was certainly not the “game-changer” in the marriage equality fight that Brown promised in 2013. NOM has a habit of inflating their turnout figures; when they claimed that 10,000 people showed up in 2014, the right-wing website WND reported that it was more like 2,000, what one pastor called a “dismal turnout” and a victory for the Satanic left. Last year’s march was held days before Supreme Court arguments in the Obergefell case, which was followed by the court’s historic marriage equality ruling two months later.

In his new email, Brown calls that decision “one of the most infamous, illegitimate rulings in the Court’s history,” and denounces Obama administration efforts to protect the right of transgender students to use facilities that match their gender identity. Obama, he says, “fancies himself a god,” which is why he is promoting such “insane and dangerous” policies.

President Obama acts as if he is a King by declaring that all public schools and other public institutions must immediately accept this new orthodoxy or be declared guilty of discrimination. He threatens them with loss of federal funding, lawsuits and reputational ruin as a "bigot" guilty of "discrimination." The impact on other Americans — frightened girls, for example, when confronted by males in a bathroom — matter not a whit to Obama. Nobody but his allies among the LGBT lobby have any rights. We have none.

Truth be told, his extreme agenda on this issue makes me wonder if Obama actually sees himself as something bigger than a King. It seems to me that only someone who fancies himself a god could have the capacity to think that he could actually redefine humanity itself, decreeing that men can be women if they so choose (and vice versa) and nobody else is supposed to notice, and certainly not complain if they do.

Let's be clear: the ideology that the LGBT extremists are advancing and President Obama is imposing is insane and dangerous. It must be stopped.
