On Sunday evening, Jim Garlow held the second of three scheduled Pray and Act webcasts heading into the mid-term election. Unlike the first event, which was broadcast live by GodTV, this webcast contained footage that was shot ahead of time, mostly at the Values Voter Summit, and webcast by the American Family Association.
Among the participants in this second webcast were the AFA Don Wildmon, Maggie Gallagher, Richard Land, Ken Blackwell, Lance Wallnau, and Lou Engle … and I have to say that it was shockingly dull.
In fact, the only exchange worth highlighting from the entire hour and a half was this one between Garlow and Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel discussing how the fight against gay marriage is really a fight against an “Antichrist Spirit”:
Garlow: If in reality the homosexual portion of the population is only 3-5%, then it seems to me they have linked up in a profound way with many others who are not homosexual. And I’m not referring to the homosexual who may be the nice one who lives next door; I’m talking about people who are committed to a radical homosexual agenda, they have been able to link up with a number of other groups and the result is that it’s almost like an Antichrist spirit, almost a capacity to silence the Gospel from being proclaimed. Is that an overstatement?
Staver: It’s not an overstatement. You’re having a confluence of different people who don’t necessarily have the same ideas. They may not be homosexual but it is an anti-Christian viewpoint; it’s a very militaristic anti-Christian viewpoint. Atheists are becoming more militaristic, the National Organization for Women, the pro-abortion organizations, and others as well are combing together because they have a common cause and that common cause is anti-Christian.
