Chuck Pierce: God Used Japan Earthquake to Topple a "Stronghold of Spiritism"

Earlier this year, Chuck Pierce and Cindy Jacobs jointly warned that California would be destroyed by a massive earthquake if Proposition 8 were to be struck down.

Well, California residents had better take that to heart because today Pierce reminds us that back in 2005 he and his associates prophesied that Japan would be shaken and brought to its knees because it was a "stronghold of spiritism":

In May 2005, I took a team to Japan for a strategic prayer gathering on the northern island of Hokkaido. Hokkaido Island is called the Island of the Spirits – a stronghold of spiritism in both Japan and the 40/70 Window. However, we went there to release a move of the Holy Spirit to overtake Japan. Several weeks before we left I received this word from my brother, Keith Pierce:

"There will be a shaking coming to Japan that will bring them to their knees. This shaking will change the industry of the nation. Japan has been built upon a fault line linked with a deep wounding from the past. This shaking will occur before the apostolic team that I am sending to Japan arrives. When they arrive, I will begin the healing of the fault line and release a new anointing for industries. I am sending you to the people group of that area and they will be humbled in the midst of their pride. Do not fear. I am causing the mountain to be brought down and the valleys to be brought up. I will create a leveling effect in Japan."

Within a few weeks, there was a major shift in their stock market as well as a major train wreck. Now, we see that nation trembling and shaking.

So, on the upside, because of this massive disaster "the old religious structures will fall and many will experience the freedom and reality of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ."

Perkins: Planned Parenthood is Causing Hike in Abortions, STDs

Tony Perkins took to The Hill today to argue that Planned Parenthood costs taxpayers billions of dollars because, he argues, by providing affordable contraception it raises the abortion rate, and by providing abortions it raises the STD rate.

First he acknowledges that the one study that he uses to back up the contraception-abortion link doesn’t actually conclude what he wants it to conclude. But that doesn’t stop him from contributing his own scientific analysis:

Earlier this year, the medical journal “Contraception” published a study, “Trends in the use of contraceptive methods and voluntary interruption of pregnancy in the Spanish population during 1997–2007.” The researchers noted that from 1997 to 2007, “the overall use of contraceptive methods increased from 49.1 percent to 79.9 percent.” During this same period, “The elective abortion rate increased from 5.52 to 11.49 per 1000 women.”

Although the article states, “The factors responsible for the increased rate of elective abortion need further investigation,” the relationship between increased contraception and increased abortion seems apparent.

I’d refer Perkins not only to common sense, but to this study in The Lancet and this USAID report citing numerous studies proving that access to contraception does, in fact, prevent unintended pregnancy.

Perkins goes on to argue that Planned Parenthood—which directs a full third of its budget to testing for and treating sexually transmitted diseases—is actually driving the STD rate in the United States because of the three percent of its budget that it spends on abortion services:

But the connection between Planned Parenthood’s so-called family planning and an increase in abortion is not the only manner in which the abortion giant is running up the taxpayer tab. A 2005 study from George Mason University suggests that as the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood is costing taxpayer billions of dollars a year by fueling the sexually transmitted disease pandemic.

According to researchers Jonathan Klick and Thomas Stratmann, who examined over four decades of data related to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), there is a statistically verifiable link between legalized abortion and the rise in STDs. Klick and Stratmann make the argument that sexual behavior responds to economic incentives. In other words, as the laws and economies of scale, along with government subsidies made abortion more economically enticing, an increase in risky sexual behavior followed and with it STDs.

How much is this increase costing us? The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 19 million new STDs occur each year, almost half of them among young people ages 15 to 24. The estimated price tag is $15 billion dollars for healthcare costs alone!

So, Perkins’ plan is to take away the ways women have to prevent pregnancies and STDs, thereby scaring them into abstinence. Sounds like the Religious Right’s dream come true…but truly scary public policy.

Cuccinelli: God Made Me Attorney General To Save Constitution From Obama

Ken Cuccinelli was profiled on "The 700 Club" today where he suggested that God made him Attorney General of Virginia so that he could protect the Constitution from President Obama:

Cuccinelli said he has a passionate interest in protecting the Constitution and that it's no coincidence he's serving as attorney general right now.

"I do think there is a plan unfolding and I'm part of it. I'm happy to be part of it," he told CBN News. "One of my goals for myself is to try to be part of it. And not to deny His will as best I can discern it."

His Catholic faith helps form his thinking. He said he has yet to come to a conclusion about public policy that isn't fortified by his faith.

Right Wing Round-Up

Right Wing Leftovers

  • Rep. Michele  Bachmann has "a pattern of getting facts wrong"? You don't say.
  • VA Gov. Bob McDonnell takes a brave "no truce on social issues" stance. Truly courageous.
  • NOM hails the church for standing up and stopping marriage equality in Maryland.
  • The saga of Joseph Maraachli is a story that the Religious Right has been focused on but to which nobody else has really been paying attention.  Perhaps that will change now that Maraachli is being moved to a hospital in the US.
  • It seems that some conservatives are growing increasingly uncomfortable with Sarah Palin's role as the face of the movement.

Rod Parsley Channels Glenn Beck to Expose "Black Genocide"

It seems that Rod Parlsey has taken a page out of Glenn Beck's playbook, as last week he dedicated two of his programs to exposing the nefarious conspiracies behind both the health care reform legislation and the "genocide" being carried out against African Americans in the form of abortion, complete with chalkboards and props.

In the health care program, Parsley was joined by former Senator Mike DeWine as he exposed the conspiracy to funnel billions of dollars to Kathleen Sebelius so she could promote her pro-abortion agenda, which had the support of people like the late Dr. George Tiller.

But that was nothing compared to the episode about the "Black Genocide," where Parsley pulled out Beck-inspired chalkboard to lay out the similarities between Planned Parenthood and the Nazi Holocaust while cradling a model of a fetus and screaming that he is "outraged that African Americans are being systematically targeted and deceived into aborting themselves into extinction":

Gaffney Wants Muslims Practicing Sharia Prosecuted for Sedition

Appearing on the television program of ACT! for America, Frank Gaffney called on the US to arrest and prosecute anyone for practicing Sharia law, the legal code of Islam. Gaffney of the far-right Center for Security Policy previously suggested that President Obama is a secret Muslim and that radical Muslims are engineering a takeover of the conservative movement. The Conservative Political Action Conference refused to give Gaffney a platform “because they didn’t want to be associated with a crazy bigot,” according to a CPAC organizer.

Speaking to ACT! for America’s leader Brigitte Gabriel, who believes Obama is a Muslim backed by terrorist groups and demanded that colleges ban the Muslim Students Association, Gaffney said that anyone who practices Sharia should be prosecuted for Sedition:

Gabriel: But a lot of people say that Sharia law is a religious practice, and maybe it should be protected by the First Amendment. Can you please tell us, is it compatible with the Constitution? Should it be protected by the First Amendment as a religious practice?

Gaffney: It is the law of the land in Saudi Arabia and Iran, and anyone who thinks that life is like in either of those two countries is the same as life in America obviously doesn’t nothing about Saudi Arabia or Iran. In fact, it is absolutely antithetical, Sharia is, to our Constitution, and the pursuit of it you said in your comment is incompatible with the Constitution’s Article VI, and therefore being a protected religious practice, it is an impermissible act of sedition, which has to be prosecuted under our Constitution.

Gaffney isn’t the first right-wing leader to say that Muslims shouldn’t be given constitutional protections, and his comments echo a push in state legislatures to ban the non-existent use of Sharia law in courts and an effort in Tennessee to criminalize the practice of Sharia. As Intisar Rabb of Boston College Law School notes, the Tennessee bill could make it “a felony for Muslims to perform everyday religious practices like praying, giving to charity, or fasting because they would be defined as banned Sharia practices.”

Beck’s Favorite Prophesier Says Japan Earthquake Signals The End Times

Glenn Beck recently embraced and provided a platform for anti-Muslim activist Joel Richardson, to espouse his views on the coming Anti-Christ. Richardson believes that Shiite Muslims worship the Anti-Christ and want to “receive ‘The Mark of the Beast,’” and also wrote an article on “what Obama and the Antichrist have in common.”

Now, Richardson believes that the deadly earthquake in Japan is a sign of the End Times.

Like Tim LaHaye, who said that the earthquake was “one of the signs of the last days,” Richardson predicts that the End Times are fast-approaching because the rate of earthquakes in the last century is far higher than earthquakes before 1800. Just a thought, but maybe people didn’t have the knowledge, expertise, or technology to record every earthquake that occurred throughout the world as we do now?

A new poll conducted by the National Association of Evangelicals reveals that a majority of its members would agree that the recent earthquakes in Haiti, New Zealand and Japan are signs of the soon coming return of Jesus.

The survey shows that more than half of respondents adhere to the theological position known as Premillennialism, which interprets the Book of Revelation to be speaking of yet future events. In contrast, only 17 percent of those polled say they believe most biblical prophecy has already been fulfilled.



So do the recent earthquakes in Haiti, New Zealand and Japan have any relevance with regard to the return of Jesus? Absolutely. If we consider the words of Jesus as well as some very stunning earthquake statistics, then a clear picture emerges, pointing to the soon coming of the return of Jesus.



• From 1 A.D. to 1800 there were 11 major earthquakes recorded in history. This results in an average of one major earthquake approximately every 100 years.

• From 1900 to 2000 there were 10 major earthquakes 7.0 or higher. This results in an average of one major earthquake every 10 years.

The GOP's Embrace of Bryan Fischer Continues

As we noted last month, despite his long history of unabashed bigotry, leading Republicans continue to appear on Bryan Fischer's radio program.

At the time of that post, Fischer had been joined Sen. Roger Wicker, Sen. Jim Inhofe, Sen. Jim DeMint, Rep. Lamar Smith, Rep. Alan Nunnelee, Rep. Raul Labrador, and presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty.

Since then, Fischer has also hosted Mike Huckabee and now we can add Rep. Steve King to the list:

The interview itself as rather dull, focusing mostly on the issue of funding for health care reform and Planned Parenthood in any Continuing Resolution, but I am posting it nonetheless as part of our effort to keep track of the increasing number of Republican leaders who have no qualms about embracing Fischer and his bigotry.

Harry Jackson Credits The Black Church With Stopping Marriage Equlity In Maryland

Last week, an effort to pass marriage equality legislation in Maryland failed and Bishop Harry Jackson was invited on to CBN News to explain what happened, where he declared that the Black Church had risen up and warned African American legislators they had better not listen to Democratic Party leaders who see them "as lemmings who are willing to just march off to your death" because there would be a price to pay when they returned to their communities.  Jackson went on to warn that they would now set about trying to remove legislators who support marriage equality from office and "stop gay marriage in its tracks":
