The American Family Association’s Sandy Rios is outraged that the brother of David Haines, a British aid worker who was beheaded by ISIS, said that Muslims were not to blame for the violent actions of the extremist group.
“His lack of understanding is just amazing and his spiritual confusion is just overwhelming,” Rios said on her American Family Radio program today. “He represents, I think, millions of American and British post-Christians who believe it’s ‘live and let live,’ it’s ‘coexist,’ it’s ‘whatever it takes to have peace among all men,’ not understanding that the Muslim faith is absolutely to blame for ISIL.”
“That’s the kind of thinking that is just perfect targets for the Islamists,” she continued. “They’re not moved by this, they’re not moved by the fact that he says his family’s not Muslim, that means their heads will be more on the chopping block, they’re not won by this kind of spiritual blandness and confusion.”
“They don’t understand what just happened to their son and brother, they don’t understand it,” she added. Rios said Haines’ remarks about nonviolence will actually help ISIS spread its evil and only “make it worse.”
David and Jason Benham, two Religious Right activists who became right-wing celebrities after HGTV canceled their planned reality show due to their anti-choice, anti-gay activism, were among the speakers at last night's "Star Spangled Sunday" event, where they urged Christians to be a bold and heroic in standing up for Christianity just as they had been.
As Jason explained, HGTV may have canceled their show but "they did not take our freedom because we've been set free by the blood of Jesus Christ ... And we're encouraging everybody else to take a stand just like that."
David then declared that the church is just like the flag that flew over Fort McHenry during the British bombardment, before turning it into a strange analogy about MMA fighting by proclaiming that "when Satan steps into the octagon and he's got rockets in one hand and bombs in another with Hamas, and ISIS, and this agenda to silence our freedoms in America, it is the Bride of Christ that steps in with our wedding gown on and combat boots on and a sword in our right hand and we will win in Jesus name":
John Guandolo: Obama Committed Treason By Saying ISIL Isn't Islamic And Should Be Removed From Office
John Guandolo, the disgraced former FBI agent who is now a full-time anti-Muslim commentator, told talk show host Steve Deace on Friday that President Obama and other U.S. officials should be “removed from office” for either “treason” or incompetence for saying that the Islamic State doesn’t represent Islam.
In his speech announcing air strikes on the Islamic State, Obama emphasized that “ISIL is not ‘Islamic,’” a line that echoed his predecessor George W. Bush’s efforts to distinguish the ideology of terrorists from Islam.
But, according to Guandalo, these kind of remarks from people like the president and Secretary of State John Kerry are either intentional lies, “in which case there’s probably treason and laws being broken there,” or a sign that the speaker is “completely incompetent.”
“In either case, they should be removed from office,” he concluded.
From their point of view, the biggest part of this war is the information campaign so that our leaders will parrot the idea that this stuff has nothing to do with Islam. I mean, a sixth grader who does 30 minutes of good research will realize that that’s crap, that’s just simply factually untrue. And so you have got to ask the question, are our leaders saying it and know they’re saying it, in which case there’s probably treason and laws being broken there. Or are they saying it and have no clue, which means they’re completely incompetent. And in either case, they should be removed from office.
Colorado GOP politician Gordon Klingenschmitt is upset that a New York court fined a wedding business for denying service to a same-sex couple, warning in an email alert that “literally the court is banning Christian worship.”
Klingenschmitt, a Religious Right activist who is the Republican nominee for a seat in the Colorado State House, told members of his Pray In Jesus Name Project in a Saturday email that the court told the business owners that they “cannot worship Christ during a wedding, unless they also worship and participate equally in sodomy in their own home.”
Christians are fined $13,000 and may no longer celebrate the Christian sacrament of marriage in their own home, unless they also host lesbian weddings. Literally the court is banning Christian worship, saying these Christian farmers cannot worship Christ during a wedding, unless they also worship and participate equally in sodomy in their own home. They are now coming into our homes, and dictating our worship. This unconstitutional policy, to punish Christians (with no religious exemptions) will be law in all 50 states, if ENDA is passed.]
In another Pray In Jesus Name Project email on Sunday, Klingenschmitt said Senate Democrats are “literally trying to outlaw Christianity” by attempting to pass a bill overturning the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling.
Democrats are literally trying to outlaw Christianity. Think about that. They now hate religious freedom so much, they're voting to reverse the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which back then was passed 97 to 3 by nearly all Democrats in the U.S. Senate. Today only 42 Republicans defend Christianity. Wow.
E.W. Jackson: Those Who Are 'Against God' Are Intensifying Attacks Because They Know 'We Cannot Be Defeated'
E.W. Jackson, the failed GOP nominee for lieutenant governor in Virginia, was among the speakers at last night's "Star Spangled Sunday" event, where he declared that "the forces ... against God" are ramping up their attacks on Christians in America because they know that "we cannot be defeated."
Jackson called on Christians to be bold and take a stand, knowing that "we cannot lose because the God we serve is on the throne and if God be for us, who can be against us?" He said that just as the British continued to attack Fort McHenry so long as the America flag flew, so too will the enemies of God continue to attack Christians.
"You don't attack a defeated foe," he said. "You don't kill a dead enemy ... The attacks are becoming more intense because the forces against us and against God know that we are not about to back down or back up, that we are rising up together as never before and so they are trying to come against us. They just don't understand that we cannot be defeated because our faith and hope is in God":
Renew America columnist Sylvia Thompson writes today that Ray Rice is the victim of a “sick, twisted, and evil” culture that hates men and that “Rice finds himself in the hands of a veritable lynch mob of leftists who seem hell-bent on destroying him.”
Since “Rice is not a homosexual man,” Thompson argues, “he suffers the full wrath of the holier-than-thou leftist mob” of “a pernicious feminism that pollutes the entire culture.”
She adds that “disgusting” feminists are “destroying the nation and many of the decent people in it” such as Rice, whom she views as the real victim of domestic abuse and an effort to usher in the “destruction of black men.”
“Radical feminists need to be taught that lesson,” she continues. “In their quest to destroy men, they have elevated domestic violence well beyond offenses of a much more grievous nature.”
While Thompson supports Ray Rice, she has strongly denounced gay athletes Michael Sam and Jason Collins as minions of Satan.
Everybody knows that if Ray Rice, the football player who is being systematically destroyed by leftists, were a homosexual who had decked another homosexual male (of any color), this fiasco would be played out vastly differently. The leftist media and sports industry would be doing everything that they could to justify the behavior – lobbying for counseling, calling for sympathy, shielding the perpetrator in every possible way. Excuse, excuse, excuse – that would be the mantra. But Ray Rice is not a homosexual man, so he suffers the full wrath of the holier-than-thou leftist mob (and all the misguided people who follow them).
What the mob is doing to Rice is beyond disgusting – it is criminal. It is a mob influenced by a pernicious feminism that pollutes the entire culture; nobody has the guts to cross rabid feminists. Rice's wife and child are being completely ignored in this eternal quest for blood, anybody's blood, as long as somebody is destroyed. Our culture has become so sick, twisted, and evil, that I find it very difficult to participate in it. I doubt that I am alone in my sentiments.
Doctor Ben Carson is the only person that I have heard, of late, who is responding to the tragedy with a sense of decency. He has cautioned against "demonizing" Ray Rice, and that is about the only sane advice I am hearing.
I addressed the issue of women physically attacking men and expecting no retaliation in an earlier article. It seems to have been determined that Janay Palmer (then, Rice's girlfriend) initiated the physical violence. I will reiterate my earlier position. If you are a woman with any sense in your head, you do not aggressively attack men. They are physically larger and if not larger, they are likely stronger. Women ignore this admonition at their own risk. I also heard that alcohol played a part in this incident. And contrary to what some may think, alcohol can indeed induce violent behavior. I am from a long line of serious drinkers, and I can attest to that fact.
If the National Football League (NFL) wants to set rules of conduct for its players, they can do so, as any employer can. The draconian decision passed down regarding Rice, however, is purely the result of attempting to please leftist feminists, and that reaction in itself is disgusting, and hypocritical. It is asinine to deny a man his livelihood except for the most grievous offenses, and domestic violence, as bad as it is, is not the most grievous offense out there. Radical feminists need to be taught that lesson. In their quest to destroy men, they have elevated domestic violence well beyond offenses of a much more grievous nature, in my view.
This takes me back to my initial premise that one of the Left's many goals is the destruction of black men.
This black man, Ray Rice, spent much of his youth preparing to take on the job of an accomplished athlete. Sports, sadly, is one of the few venues that afford often poorly educated black children a chance to move forward in their lives, and not down that deadly spiral of poverty and imprisonment. And yet, Rice finds himself in the hands of a veritable lynch mob of leftists who seem hell-bent on destroying him. I'd bet that he does not quite know what has hit him.
My hope and prayer is that Rice and his wife will be able to find means of supporting their family and get beyond this hatefulness. And, perhaps later, they will join those of us who are in mortal combat against leftist thinking, which is destroying the nation and many of the decent people in it.
Mike Huckabee closed out his remarks at last night's "Star Spangled Sunday" event by recounting how, many years ago, he used to watch Arkansas Razorbacks basketball games when they were re-broadcast late at night, especially when he already knew that they had won the game when it was played live earlier in the day because, no matter what the score was at any point, he knew that his team would ultimately win.
Huckabee urged those in attendance to apply this same lesson in response to the threat from radical Islam, saying that they should read the Bible in order to realize that the Christians will defeat the Muslims in the end.
"I got good news for all the dispirited and disquieted Christians in America who somehow are afraid that the Sons of Ishmael who are challenging us now in the Middle East will overwhelm the Sons of Isaac," Huckabee said. "Let me assure you, I have read the end of the Book! My dear friend, we win!"
Gina Loudon of WorldNetDaily knows who is really to blame for domestic abuse in America: feminists.
Loudon writes today that feminists have convinced women, such as Janay Rice, that “women are the same as men” and therefore do not need protection from their violent male partners, leading to “more abuse of women (and men).”
While Loudon doesn’t have any evidence that feminism is somehow linked to abuse, she believes no “intellectually honest” person could disagree with her analysis.
Where were the bra-burning, old-guard feminists this week in the Ray Rice abuse controversy? If women and men are truly the same as they claim, then why weren’t they screaming in protest of his punishment? If women are the same as men, then how can they argue that a woman beaten by her boyfriend deserves special protection? Were they consistent, the feminist hypocrites would be decrying the NFL for extending protection to women that they do not need (by their own standards).
Feminists demand that training be “equalized” to facilitate women becoming firefighters and combat troops (in mixed-gender units), but on the other hand, they sit quietly when special protections are extended to women. Is there one intellectually honest liberal who will point to this hypocrisy?
The difficult part is that for so long, feminists have said there is no difference between men and women, and the American Psychological Association has backed them up. If that’s true, then you can’t say that male abusers are more at fault than female abusers. That muddies the waters in cases like the Ray Rice controversy. The feminists have not done women a favor here. Clearly, Rice is at least double the size of his now wife. That is a clear difference that should not be overlooked. Despite old feminists’ fantasies, women and men are not the same.
American culture used to value the special protection of women, and now it doesn’t. Feminists burned bras and emasculated men to reach “sameness.” Now they have it, but real women are waking up and asking, “Do we really want to be the same as men?” Less than 20 percent of women today want to call themselves feminists. The old-school feminists wanted military equality (front-line combat), gender neutrality and partnerships instead of the protections for women and children in marriage.
I believe it is that shift to sameness over the past 50 years that has led to more abuse of women (and men). Now taxpayers are forced to fund these myths (that there is no difference between men and women) through “feminist studies” programs in our schools and universities. …
The Rice case is critical to the fiber of our culture, and to those one in four women (and men) out there who understand Palmer’s plight all too well. We can thank the old feminists for putting us here. The question is, can we be honest enough to look at the opposite sex, and admit that equal does not mean same?
Rev. Austin Miles, who believes President Obama is going to arrest him and throw him in jail any day now, took to Renew America on Friday to warn that the president is planning to use immigration to “destroy us from within.”
According to Miles, Obama has declared “war” on Christians and has “knowingly let in Islamic terrorists” in hopes that they will “initiate further attacks on America.”
Right after 9/11, it was suddenly OK to pray and bring God back into the life of America. Churches were filled bringing a different atmosphere to our country. Then cometh Obama.
When Communist trained Obama was PLACED in the White House (not voted in-but PLACED) war was suddenly declared on churches, Christians or any expressions of the Christian faith. They (the Christians) were the real enemy.
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegals – and they vote – then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.
By opening our borders to all comers, Obama has knowingly let in Islamic terrorists who have actually set up training camps in America. These camps are heavily guarded and left alone to do what they may. And they plan to initiate further attacks on America, on American soil, thanks to Obama who has opened the door for them to come in and set up shop.
Instead of protecting America, which a REAL LEGITIMATE President would do, he lets the Islamists have full access to our country so that they can destroy us from within.
Last night, the Family Research Council hosted an event at First Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina called "Star Spangled Sunday."
Billed as a celebration of 200th anniversary of the national anthem, the event featured speakers like Sen. Ted Cruz, Mike Huckbee, Rick Scarborough, E..W. Jackson and others and turned out to be primarily a promotional event for FRC's "123Vote.com" effort to register and mobilize Christian voters ahead of the midterm elections.
Kicking off the program was a video history lesson in which Kenyn Cureton, FRC's Vice President for Church Ministries, explained the many times that God directly intervened in order to establish and save America.
As Cureton explained, when the British burned Washington during the War of 1812, God sent torrential rains, and even a tornado, to put out the flames and kill the British troops.
"God brought a storm of biblical proportions to Washington," he said, "and unleashed it on those British invaders."
Time and again, "God providentially intervened" in American history to protect this nation, Cureton said, and He will do so again if only this nation will turn back to Him ... by which he presumably means "register and vote for Republicans":
