Will Marriage Equality In New York Lead To The Coming Of The Antichrist?

Pat Robertson has already warned that God will destroy America over New York’s new marriage equality law, and now Religious Right commentator Michael Bresciani is saying that marriage equality may bring the coming of the Antichrist. Writing for Renew America, Bresciani claims that America is abandoning God and will be led into a “foreign tyranny and a ruthless ruler the scriptures refer to as the antichrist”:

The children of Belial could not be expected to understand it but the hour is late and never has there been a time in our history when the following has been truer of America. "Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil." (Ec 8: 11) If clamoring for gay rights and gay marriage is pushing the envelope then more laws to dignify such perversion can only be just more to push us over the top in God's patience.



No one says it better than the ancient prophet Micah. He was a contemporary of the prophet Isaiah and gave his message to Israel and Judah for a period of about fifty years. Although he like Isaiah saw the coming captivity that Israel would undergo after Babylon conquered them, those events were over 125 years into the future and no one paid much attention to either prophet on that matter. Micah saw the Assyrian captivity of Israel and that was only ten years away from his prophecies.

The results of our choices in America are closer than Micah's prophecies by far. But the result will be just about the same. We too will be led away captive but not to a foreign place but rather to a foreign tyranny and a ruthless ruler the scriptures refer to as the antichrist.



The condensed version of the pattern God uses is this; A call to repentance, a graduating scale of calamities, natural disasters and disruption of nature, a collapse of the powers and the economy of a nation. Need I remind anyone that America is already in stage three of this pattern? After this it gets far more serious, what exactly does that mean? My answer is both; you don't really want to know and stay tuned there is more to come.

Rick Perry: Join Me To "Pray and Fast Like Jesus Did"

Governor Rick Perry has now filmed a video urging people to join him for the prayer rally he is organizing with the American Family Association and various Religious Right activists in Houston in August, saying prayer is needed now more than ever to fix this nation's spiritual problems:

This is Governor Rick Perry and I'm inviting you to join your fellow Americans for a day of prayer and fasting on behalf of our nation. As an elected leader, I am all too aware of government's limitations when it comes to fixing things that are spiritual in nature. That's where prayer comes in, and we need it more than ever. With the economy in trouble, communities in crisis and people adrift in a sea of moral relativism, we need God's help. That's why I'm calling on Americans to pray and fast like Jesus did and as God called the Israelite to do in the Book of Joel. I sincerely hope you will join me in Houston on August the sixth and take your place in Reliant Stadium with praying people asking God's forgiveness, his wisdom and provision for our state and nation.

You know, if Perry really wanted people to "pray and fast like Jesus did," he probably wouldn't be urging them to join with him in this massive public display:

5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you ... 16 “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Barber: Adopted Children Of Gay Parents Are "Props" To Further "Sexual Anarchy"

Matt Barber and Deryl Edwards of Liberty Counsel dedicated Faith and Freedom to discussing the dangers of allowing gay and lesbian couples adopt children. Barber, who previous said that the high suicide rate among LGBT youth is due to the fact that they intuitively know that being gay is wrong, said that his “heart breaks” for children adopted by same-sex couples who are using them as “propaganda photographs” and “props on their lap.” He elaborated that same-sex couples don’t actually care about the welfare of children but only want to further “post-modern sexual anarchy.”

Lou Engle Is Coming To Michigan To Convert Muslims

When Lou Engle announced The Call will be coming to Detroit, he initially focused on using prayer to revive the city and to have African Americans release whites from becoming “slaves” of guilt. But in a new advertisement for his prayer rally, Engle discusses the need to bring Christianity to the Muslims in Detroit and nearby city of Dearborn, a city which many in the Religious Right wrongly think is subject to Sharia law. “We’re launching a house of prayer between Detroit and Dearborn,” Engle said, “I believe His target of intercession is for Muslims to know the love of Jesus and a breakthrough of revival in Detroit.” Engle’s The Call is the model for a similar prayer rally, The Response, hosted by Texas Governor Rick Perry, the American Family Association, and the International House of Prayer, which is closely affiliated with the The Call.

EW Jackson: It Is A Joke To Call Obama A Christian

Bishop E.W. Jackson is a fringe Religious Right activist, the sort who pals around with the likes of Rick Scarborough and Janet Porter while likening Democrats to slaveholders, calling them the "coalition of the godless," and making it his mission to get African Americans to leave the Democratic Party.

He is also running for the open Senate seat from Virginia ... and is currently out on the campaign trail attacking President Obama for loving Islam more than he loves America and claiming it is a "joke" to even consider Obama to be a Christian:

Rep. Akin Is Sorry...That You Misunderstood Him

Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO) continues to face criticism for comments he made, first reported here at Right Wing Watch, that “at the heart of liberalism really is a hatred for God.” After defending his comments during a radio interview, in a new statement he tries to walk them back. Akin says in a new statement that it’s not that liberals hate God, just that liberal beliefs hate God. Get it?

People, who know me and my family, know that we take our faith and beliefs very seriously. As Christians, we would never question the sincerity of anyone’s personal relationship with God. My statement during my radio interview was directed at the political movement, Liberalism, not at any specific individual. If my statement gave a different impression, I offer my apologies.

My point was to object to the systematic assault that attempts to remove any reference to God from the public square.

NBC’s recent action only highlighted the continuing battle for those of us who believe that removing references to God go contrary to the Judeo-Christian heritage our nation was founded on -- the belief that our inalienable rights come from God himself, and the freedom to live our lives and worship as we see fit.

According to a report from NBC-affiliate KSDK, a group of clergymen will try to meet with the Congressman:

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch also reports that his apology has done little to end the outcry:

But the apology fell flat with a group of St. Louis-area clergy members, most of whom are liberal. They plan to gather at the Akin's Ballwin district office at 11 a.m. today to deliver a letter calling on him to "reconsider not only your words, but also your moral priorities as a political leader."

"Congressman Akin continues to insist that liberalism is anti-religion. As a pastor and a constituent of Congressman Akin's, I find this deeply offensive," said the Rev. Kevin Cameron of Parkway United Church of Christ in west St. Louis County.



The Rev. Krista Taves of Emerson Unitarian Universalist Chapel in Ellisville said Akin's comment 'shows how very little he knows about liberals, and how very little he knows about God."

Janet Porter's Heartbeat Bill Passes Ohio State House

The Ohio State House finally voted on and passed Janet Porter’s “Heartbeat bill,” which would criminalize abortion in most cases. Conspicuously absent was a statement from the state’s leading anti-choice group, the Ohio Right to Life Society, which actually opposed the bill because it is blatantly unconstitutional. Now Porter’s prized legislation moves on to the Senate, and her group Faith2Action released a congratulatory statement:

“For every battle weary pro-lifer who didn't see how children were going to be protected in our lifetime, come see what God is doing in Ohio. Protection for babies with beating hearts is within reach for the first time since Roe stripped their rights away. I have never been more hopeful for restoring protection to babies with beating hearts than I am right now,” declared Janet (Folger) Porter, president of Ohio-based Faith2Action and a former legislative director for Ohio Right to Life.

In meetings with bill supporters, several of the state senators have expressed interest in serving as a sponsor or co-sponsor for the bill.

The bill was backed by a number of national Republican figures including presidential candidates Michele Bachmann and Newt Gingrich, and Porter even had two fetuses “testify” in favor of the bill.

Right Wing Round-Up

Right Wing Leftovers

  • Despite having accomplished next to nothing legislatively, Rep. Michele Bachmann is running for president.
  • But she is confident that the Republican Party will "be very happy" with her serving as the GOP presidential nominee.
  • Of course, her former Chief of Staff says Bachmann is entirely unready to be president.
  • Herman Cain is looking for people who "have been abused by the EPA" ... so he can put them in charge of the EPA when he becomes president.
  • But before he can do that, he better start looking for people to staff his campaign in New Hampshire.
  • When Glenn Beck heads to Israel for his next rally, he will also address a Knesset committee to "discuss how to fight the delegitimization of Israel around the world."

Understanding Bachmann's View That The Founders Opposed Slavery

Today Michele Bachmann refused to back down from her previous claim that the Founding Fathers, many of whom were slaveholders, actually opposed slavery. She cited John Quincy Adams, who was nine years old when the Declaration of Independence was signed, to prove her argument that the Founders worked to end slavery. But Bachmann’s belief that the Founding Fathers were actually abolitionists makes sense in the world of conservative alternative history created by David Barton.

Bachmann is a fan of Barton and even invited the pseudo-historian to address members of Congress in a lecture sponsored by her House Tea Party Caucus. Barton insists that Founders were not only devoted opponents of slavery, but actually fought the revolution against Britain to end it. Even though Britain abolished slavery two decades before the U.S., Barton insists that the War of Independence was really about America’s desire to end slavery against Britain’s wishes:
