Days after blaming the California drought on gay people, Bill Koenig of World Watch Daily addressed a meeting organized by the Republican National Committee’s Conservative Steering Committee.
Michigan RNC member Dave Agema, a GOP activist with his own record of anti-gay extremism, mentioned on his Facebook page yesterday that Koenig told the group, which met in Arizona yesterday during the RNC’s spring meeting, that God punished George W. Bush and Bill Clinton for mistreating Israel, and will levy a similarly harsh judgment against President Obama.
According to Agema, Koenig also “gave a history of the ‘Blood Moons’ and how they intertwined with Israel’s history.” Another speaker from the anti-gay Alliance Defense Fund, Agema reported, “stated that religious freedom is under attack. She stated our rights come from God, not men according to our constitution [sic] and that if the Supreme Court rules for homosexual marriage our tax exempt status is at great risk.”
The Conservative Steering Committee, which Agema estimated had about “approximately 70-80 members” in attendance at the breakfast, filed an amicus brief written by RNC attorney Jim Bopp [PDF] in the Supreme Court marriage case, warning that children will “suffer” as a result of marriage equality.
At the RNC Conservative Steering Committee breakfast this morning in Phoenix, we had several speakers.
First you all should know that this committee sent a [sic] Amicus brief to the Supreme Court against homosexual marriage. We all hope it makes a difference. The Republican Party has always supported traditional marriage.
William Koenig ( watch.org), a Washington correspondent spoke on the history of what happens when a president or country tries to divide Israel for peace. He stated- it never works.
He stated that one of the most frequent visitors to the Whitehouse under Clinton was Arafat. He stated Obama’s behavior towards Israel , abortion and marriage is undermining his presidency. He also stated that George W. Bush’s presidency began to falter after he agreed to consider dividing Israel for peace and that we should pray for the peace of Jerusalem. He also gave a history of the ” Blood Moons” and how they intertwined with Israel’s history.
David McIntosh spoke from Club for Growth and encouraged us to hold our elected officials feet to the fire concerning free markets, free trade, reduce spending, reduced entitlements and crony capitalism. He stated the next president will have an opportunity to select four Supreme Court Justices which is a huge win for conservatives if a good republican wins the presidency.
He stated that Israel understands that the Republicans are the best allies Israel has in America and they appreciate it in these troubled times. He stated that those who curse Israel will be cursed and those that bless her will be blessed.
Christina from the Alliance Defending Freedom stated that religious freedom is under attack. She stated our rights come from God, not men according to our constitution and that if the Supreme Court rules for homosexual marriage our tax exempt status is at great risk. She stated economic and religious liberty go hand in hand and that most important issues aren’t often popular but a battle that must be fought. It takes vigilance.
There were approximately 70-80 members at this breakfast and it gives me great hope for our party’s future when we I see members united for conservative principles.
