Today on “The 700 Club,” a viewer wrote in to ask Pat Robertson if her son’s “mental issues” are God’s punishment for her purchase of a Ouija board while he was a child.
Robertson said that demonic possession was certainly a possibility, since he once knew of a case where a demon entered a woman’s body after she watched an X-rated movie, “and the demon said, ‘I had permission.’”
“So you gave the demons permission to come into your home when you had a Ouija board,” he explained, advising the woman to seek both professional medical help and an exorcism for her son. “Close the door and send the demon away,” he told her.
Cliff Kincaid of the conservative group Accuracy In Media is beside himself that many media outlets are using female gender pronouns to describe Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, and referring to her by the name she recently announced in a Vanity Fair interview.
Kincaid wonders today in BarbWire if Jenner’s gender transition is just “a hoax” to promote an upcoming reality TV show about her story and asks why people aren’t calling her “a pervert or a lunatic.”
The greatest threat of all, Kincaid claims, is to the children, deriding support for Jenner an “extremely damaging” message to kids that will imperil the future of America.
“The truth is that the media have already bought into this hoax and are too far gone, and the United States may be on the inevitable decline as well,” Kincaid writes, warning that “the nation may not survive, as it becomes a laughingstock before self-destructing or becoming easy pickings for a determined foreign adversary.”
On this basis, journalists are supposed to disregard reality and accept whatever various sexual minorities or psychologically disturbed individuals claim to be the case.
This flies in the face of normal rules of objective reporting, which require that things be covered in the way they are, not as people wish them to be.
How does growing one’s hair long and wearing a dress make Bruce Jenner into a woman? Some might say it makes him appear to be crazy, a pervert or a lunatic.
The issue of Vanity Fair featuring the photos of “Caitlyn Jenner” has not yet hit newsstands, but the photos are appearing everywhere in the media, including on the Fox News Channel, where Megyn Kelly declared “Caitlyn Jenner” to be a “courageous” figure.
The rest of the media are also falling into line. “She has finally made her debut,” reported CNN. “Caitlyn Jenner, Formerly Bruce, Introduces Herself in Vanity Fair” was the headline in The New York Times. The paper now calls her “Ms. Jenner.”
But where is the evidence that this is anything but a hoax?
During a period when America desperately needs strong families grounded in the traditional male-female relationship, this message of sexual confusion can have an extremely damaging impact on young people who may be going through challenging periods in their lives.
The truth is that the media have already bought into this hoax and are too far gone, and the United States may be on the inevitable decline as well.
The “courage” we really need is that which stands up to this decline and affirms the traditional relationships based on America’s founding values. But it appears it is just too much to ask for this kind of courage from the media.
America’s families will pay the price. The nation may not survive, as it becomes a laughingstock before self-destructing or becoming easy pickings for a determined foreign adversary.
When Guy Benson of the conservative outlet Townhall publicly came out as gay, it was only a matter of time before American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer issued a statement claiming that “Benson must be replaced” since he, as a prominent gay conservative, is “particularly dangerous to the conservative cause.”
Today, Sandy Rios, the American Family Association’s director of governmental affairs, told the AFA’s news service OneNewsNow that Benson’s presence at the upcoming Western Conservative Summit is “a serious problem” since he supports marriage equality, which she claims will lead to mass persecution “against Christians and social conservatives.”
A conservative activist and radio talk show host calls it troubling that an open homosexual will speak at an event featuring GOP presidential hopefuls.
Several GOP candidates will take part in the Western Conservative Summit 2015 scheduled for June 26-28 in Denver.
Also present at the Summit will be conservative author Guy Benson, the public editor at Townhall.com who recently revealed that he is homosexual and supports same-sex "marriage." Sandy Rios, director of governmental affairs at the American Family Association, calls it a mistake when social conservatives, especially Christians, embrace someone who supports gay "marriage."
"I think it's a serious problem," says Rios, "especially as we hurdle toward a Supreme Court decision where very likely the Supreme Court will decide against Christians and social conservatives, and very likely the persecution that will result from that decision will be exponential."
The schedule of events shows Benson is scheduled to appear at a Saturday luncheon to discuss the topic, "Why the Left wants to end discussion."
Rios says Benson is not the only summit participant with a problematical view of homosexuality. She says journalist Mary Katharine Ham also supports same-sex marriage and special rights for homosexuals.
On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” Christopher Farrell of Judicial Watch spoke to host Rick Wiles about his group’s claim that the U.S. compound in Benghazi was “arming Al Qaeda” and coordinating arms shipments to Islamic terrorists in Syria, which raises questions as to why then Islamic terrorists attacked the compound in 2012.
Wiles said that there would have been “calls for the arrest of Barack Obama” had people realized that he was secretly sending arms to terrorists (which he wasn’t).
Wiles claimed that just as Gary Hart’s “presidential campaign was stopped in its tracks because a photograph surfaced of him with a pretty blonde sitting on his lap, now we have murderous Islamic thugs sitting on the lap of Hillary Clinton and nobody cares.”
The two then brought up the discredited conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton murdered Vince Foster.
A Republican-led investigation by the House Select Committee on Intelligence, like other investigations, found that Judicial Watch’s allegations about arm shipments to Syria don’t hold water:
Conservative activists love to complain that religious freedom in the U.S. is under attack because companies in some states aren’t allowed to deny service to customers based on certain characteristics. However, when a Muslim job applicant is denied employment simply because of a religious garment she wears, then it’s appropriate, and any action to prevent such discrimination is Sharia law!
At least, according to Michelle Malkin, the conservative commentator who made the case yesterday on Newsmax.
Reflecting on an 8-1 Supreme Court ruling in favor of a job prospect who was turned down by Abercrombie & Fitch over concerns that she would [violate] wear a headscarf, that determined that “an employer may not make a job applicant’s religious practice, confirmed or otherwise, a factor in employment decisions,” Malkin insisted that non-discrimination laws, in this case the Civil Rights Act, represent onerous burdens on business.
“We have seen this increasing narrative of capitulating to unreasonable political correctness over and over and over again,” Malkin said, before criticizing “grievance-mongerers” who “pretend they stand up for the religious liberty of Muslims.”
“There’s something much more insidious and nefarious going on,” she said, mentioning the case of a Muslim woman who felt that an airline singled her out during a flight as a security risk: “The grievance-mongering industry has a very good way of forcing this country to apologize for the freedoms that we do have and in essence what we’re talking about here is the tacit adoption of Sharia law in America.”
She went on to criticize Democrats for trying to “shame people who are financially successful,” who of course, are the real victims of persecution in America.
Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel spoke to Greg Corombos of WorldNetDaily yesterday about a new Gallup poll showing that a majority of Americans, including a plurality of Republicans, believe that homosexuality is “something a person is born with” rather than a result of a person’s “upbringing.” In addition, Gallup found that 60 percent of Americans favor marriage equality.
Despite these findings, which are in line with other polls showing majority approval for same-sex marriage, Staver told Corombos that he doesn’t believe the polls since they “under-report” opposition to gay rights.
But he added that it doesn’t even matter if a majority of people believe homosexuality is innate because there is “no evidence” that gay people are born that way. “It wouldn’t matter if a poll said that people believe that the earth was flat with respect to whether or not they believe that homosexuality was something with which you were born,” he said.
Staver also predicted that a conservative “splinter group that will ultimately no longer support the Republican Party” will form if the GOP backtracks on its opposition to gay marriage, while noting the “good news” that party leaders and presidential candidates remain opposed to legalizing same-sex marriage.
Conservative commentator Pat Buchanan is reeling from last month’s successful marriage equality referendum in Ireland, warning that the country will likely perish “before the onslaught of secularism, materialism, and hedonism.”
“When the faith dies, the culture it produced begins to die, then the civilization goes, and, then, the population,” Buchanan told the far-right outlet WorldNetDaily in an interview today. “As for the Catholic schools, I am sure that many of the priests, nuns and lay teachers are doing their best, but in the 21st century, the devil has all the best tunes. And, clearly, St. Patrick did not drive all the snakes out of Ireland.”
In an exclusive interview with WND, the author of “The Death of the West,” said: “Ireland appears to be going the way of Europe and America. Christianity is everywhere in retreat before the onslaught of secularism, materialism, and hedonism, especially among the young. And I think it holds.”
Buchanan criticized “gay marriage” proponents for assuming Ireland can be sustained once it has been stripped of the faith that built the country.
“When the faith dies, the culture it produced begins to die, then the civilization goes, and, then, the population,” he warned.
And despite the best efforts of Catholic clergy, teachers, and religious orders, Buchanan is pessimistic the church can reconnect with young people.
“As for the Catholic schools, I am sure that many of the priests, nuns and lay teachers are doing their best, but in the 21st century, the devil has all the best tunes. And, clearly, St. Patrick did not drive all the snakes out of Ireland.”
Sandy Rios, the American Family Association’s director of governmental affairs, defended Dennis Hastert on her radio program today, wondering if the former House speaker’s indictment in an alleged scheme to cover up a sexual abuse scandal was “political payback” for his time in Congress.
Insisting that she was not defending Hastert’s alleged actions, Rios said that the FBI should instead be focused on prosecuting Bill and Hillary Clinton in the phony Clinton Foundation scandal. She added that she is just asking the question as to whether Hastert is the victim of “political payback” for his time as a Republican leader in Congress.
“I have to ask if this is political payback, you have to ask that,” Rios said, before comparing Hastert’s prosecution to the “outing” of politicians who vote against gay rights bills, saying: “The Right generally doesn’t out people, I’m not saying they never do but it’s usually the Left that does it, there was a whole squad of gay activists who outed closeted gay men who were not voting the way they thought they should, probably ten years ago it was very actively done…. You just wonder if this was about justice or if this was about ruining the man.”
Bakker, seemingly thinking that one group’s call for legal action against an Air Force general over a speech on prayer he delivered while in uniform was an official military action on the matter, said that “we have outlawed God” in the U.S., while Wiles claimed that the military is turning into a “pagan atheist army” that will “lock up” all of “the God fearing men.”
“When you have a Antichrist man in the White House, whether it is this one or a future one, and he tells an atheistic, God-hating military, ‘These Christians are enemies of the state,’ do you think it would be hard for them to round us up?” Wiles asked, a prospect that Bakker said is already happening.
“There is a criminal cabal that runs this country, our beloved America has been taken over by a bunch of lying, thieving, murderous criminals, I don’t know what else to call them; they’re Nazis, I really believe it, they’re Nazis,” Wiles said. “The CIA brought 10,000 Nazis from Germany to the United States after World War II. We didn’t bring them over here to make them Boy Scouts. We brought them over here for them to tell us: how did Hitler do it? We brought their mad men over here to teach us how to build that Third Reich. What we’re dealing with in this country, you’re asking how did this happen. This Third Reich is here. This Nazism is here.”
Wiles, avocalsupporter of Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s harsh anti-LGBT policies, cited Russian propagandareports about how the Maidan uprising was actually a U.S.-backed Nazi takeover of Ukraine as further proof that America is now a Nazi state.
