Today’s installment of Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom Radio” program was dedicated to promoting next month’s Values Voter Summit, which Liberty Counsel is co-sponsoring along with the Family Research Council and the American Family Association.
During the broadcast, Matt Barber said that this year’s gathering was more important than ever because conservatives must stand together as Liberals are realizing that their hold on government is about to disappear and, as such, are engaging in outrageous rhetoric and pointed to the recent remarks by James Hoffa as evidence.
At Mat Staver was absolutely outraged by this sort of “bombastic rhetoric,” not to mention the fact that nobody is willing to condemn it:
You know, one of the things I am concerned about – and it really has gone on for quite a while and it gets even more and more escalated – and that is this rhetoric that people use within the political arena. Instead of really trying to deal with differences and try to understand each others differences and ultimately confront them, there’s this bombastic rhetoric. And this rhetoric by Hoffa in regards to his idea, they’ve never been condemned by people in leadership and they should be. It’s just completely uncalled for, the kind of rhetoric that he was dealing with.
Let us just point out that Staver has accused President Obama of seeking to become a global dictator who seeks to destroy America and who has made this nation so immoral that that Liberty Counsel has had to declare its independence from the “abusive and lawless regime in the Executive Branch and in the United States Congress.”
At the time he said this, Staver was seated across from Matt Barber, who asserts that all gays are pedophiles who seek to poison the minds of children and want to put Christians in jail and who openly states that Liberalism is rooted in hatred of God.
Not to mention that Liberty Counsel is co-sponsoring the Values Voter Summit with the organization that employs Bryan Fischer and that Fischer will be given a key speaking slot during the conference.
If Staver really wants to see people step up and condemn the “uncalled for” rhetoric people are using in the political arena, maybe he ought to start looking a little closer to home.
