Tim Huelskamp Predicts Marriage Equality Will 'Destroy' Marriage And The Family

After delivering a feisty speech at last week’s “March for Marriage” about how “real men” must stop gay marriage from harming women, Rep. Tim Huelskamp chatted with the conservative website CNSNews about gay marriage and adoption rights.

The Kansas Republican agreed with a CNSNews reporter’s suggestion that marriage equality will “destroy the institution of marriage and of [the] family” and warned that it will pave the way for polygamy.

When asked if he also opposes the right of gay couples to adopt children, Huelskamp tried to avoid the question by repeating the myth that the government shut down Catholic Charities and in doing so violated the First Amendment.

In reality, a few Catholic Charities branches have chosen to shut down certain services because they refuse to comply with nondiscrimination policies that are a condition for receiving taxpayer subsidies.

Scott Lively: State Department 'Has Truly Become The Great Satan Of The World'

Right-wing pastor Scott Lively is once again defending Uganda’s crackdown on its gay community, taking to BarbWire today to criticize new U.S. sanctions against Uganda along with the appointments of gay ambassadors and American support for LGBT events abroad.

“[I]t is encouraging to see the Africans standing up to the United States and it’s ‘Babylonian’ State Department, which, at least in regards to sexual morality and the LGBT agenda has truly become ‘The Great Satan’ of the world,” Lively writes.

Still, it is encouraging to see the Africans standing up to the United States and it’s “Babylonian” State Department, which, at least in regards to sexual morality and the LGBT agenda has truly become “The Great Satan” of the world. Following a “Gay Pride” celebration in 2011 at the US Embassy in Islamibad [sic], the Pakistani government condemned US activism as “cultural terrorism.”

To be fair, State has been under the control of the LGBT movement since before President Obama took office. I was in Riga, Latvia in 2006 and 2007 to help the Latvian pro-family movement resist EU pressure to allow a “Gay Pride Parade.” We succeeded in 2006, but then in 2007 we failed after the LGBT organizing efforts were joined by LGBT activists at the U.S. Embassy under Ambassador Catherine Todd Bailey of the Bush Administration. The late Pastor Ken “Hutch” Hutcherson and I confronted diplomatic staff about the matter at the Embassy in Riga, but were unsuccessful at stopping the parade.

However, “Gay” power at State had grown by a magnitude of 10 under Obama. Openly homosexual Ambassadors are now being posted around the world. And in December of 2011, the Obama Administration declared the advancement of the homosexual agenda a priority of the United States government around the world. Among other things all US agencies abroad were directed to “combat the criminalization by foreign governments of LGBT status or conduct [i.e. sodomy laws] and to expand efforts to combat discrimination, homophobia, and intolerance on the basis of LGBT status or conduct” [i.e Biblical pro-family views], including funding of the “gay” agenda by “Agencies involved with foreign aid, assistance, and development.”

Jesse Lee Peterson Claims 'Redskins' Controversy Is An Attack On 'Freedom,' 'White Business Owners'

Conservative talk show host Jesse Lee Peterson is calling on conservatives to buy Washington Redskins merchandise in order to stand up to Democrats as they “exploit a racial crisis” and try to “destroy successful and independent-minded, white business owners.”

In his WorldNetDaily column today, Peterson also warns that criticism of the NFL team’s name amounts to an attack on freedom itself: “Supporting the team and their owner, Dan Snyder, is supporting freedom.”

Harry Reid publicly slammed team owner Daniel Snyder and said the Redskins name was “racist.” Barack Obama, who never misses an opportunity to exploit a racial crisis, said if he owned the team he would change the name.

This interference is not about eradicating racism. It’s about intimidation and control! Reid and the left want to destroy successful and independent-minded, white business owners by forcing them to comply with the tyrannical demands of this administration and fringe activist minority groups.



The left’s obsession with political correctness, power and control is causing Americans to lose their livelihoods and freedom.



When we don’t stand up and speak out against evil, we empower it. If they can ban the Redskins name and strip law-abiding Americans of their private and intellectual property rights, they can rob us of our individual rights as well.

Banning the Redskins name is an outrageous move influenced by a lawless administration. Supporting the team and their owner, Dan Snyder, is supporting freedom. Do the right thing, America!

You can support the Redskins’ brand by purchasing apparel directly from the team’s online pro-shop. Contact the Redskins and encourage them to stand their ground against this unsportsmanlike conduct!

WorldNetDaily Pundit Says Men Should 'Shy Away From Women' To Avoid Feminist 'Harridans'

WorldNetDaily columnist Patrice Lewis, who previously called on wives to submit to their husbands in order to free themselves from feminist oppression, is out today with a new diatribe defending sexist comments posted in response to a separate WND article on rape.

Lewis claims that the people who left such comments are the real victims and are just “tired of being stigmatized merely for possessing a Y chromosome” by feminists who have “made men fearful to be men.”

“[W]omen hold the trump card in our feminized society, and men know it,” Lewis writes. “If I were a man, I’d shy away from women too. What a horrible, twisted, mixed-up world.”

Recently, WND posted an article entitled “You won’t believe new campus rules on ‘rape’” on the subject of how “rape” is being reclassified as any sexual conduct, no matter how mutually consenting.

But it was the blistering commentary that followed the article – well over a thousand comments – that was educational. What astonished me was the level of anger from men. And I mean pure sputtering fury – fury at the arbitrary and unfair feminist societal standards that have been imposed on men to worsening degrees over the last 20 or 30 years. These standards have denied men the ability to be MEN and have turned women into harridans. In short, there was a lot of pain in those comments, much of it from men who are tired of being stigmatized merely for possessing a Y chromosome.



Feminism has made men fearful to be men. It denies them the ability to fulfill their biological programming as protectors and providers, because to do so is “sexist.” Women can, and do, ruin men at the drop of a hat – trash their reputation, deprive them of their employment, rip away their children – all because of an errant word or deed women deem contrary to the feminist mantra. It’s getting to the point where many men hate women because of this.



Feminism has poisoned women against their biological inheritance as nurturers and child-bearers. To be feminine is now anathema to a feminist. To embrace being a wife and mother is betraying the sisterhood. To like men – to genuinely appreciate manly qualities – is tantamount to heresy.



Feminists, having taken over everything from court systems to universities to government, have become drunk with power. Men have learned the hard way what happens when they challenge a feminist. Bluntly put, a man’s life can be ruined by women. A woman can remove his beloved children from his care; she can have him jailed with an unsubstantiated accusation of rape; she can ruin his career by crying harassment because he “looked at her sexually.” And frequently the damage done isn’t limited to just the man under attack. All too often, it’s children who are caught in the crossfire. Children are ripped apart by unnecessary divorce, children are indoctrinated into feminism, boys are treated as criminals because their bodies create testosterone, girls are treated as heroes merely for having two X chromosomes.

In short, women hold the trump card in our feminized society, and men know it. If I were a man, I’d shy away from women too. What a horrible, twisted, mixed-up world.

Paranoia-Rama: Divine Punishment For Gay Rights, Liberals Pushing Second Holocaust, Guerrilla War A-Brewin'

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Another week of totally reasonable and sane thoughts about Benghazi, health care reform marriage equality from the far-right.

5) Just Another Distraction From—

Last month, former Florida congressman Allen West said that Boko Haram’s kidnappings of hundreds of Nigerian girls were a suspicious distraction from the 2012 Benghazi attack .

But this week, West tweeted that the capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala, the accused perpetrator of the Benghazi attack, was just a way for the Obama administration to distract from non-Benghazi scandals.

“This is the whole wag the dog thing when you have so many other things that are going bad and unfortunately,” such as the crisis in Iraq and illegal immigration, he told Fox News Radio. “[Khattala] ends up being the Obama administration’s fall guy. Just the same as the poor guy who produced the quote-unquote anti-Islamic video.”

As Media Matters points out, West himself has called Khattala “a ringleader of the attack.”

But perhaps West now doesn’t want listeners to pay attention to Khattala because the militant reportedly said the Benghazi attack was retaliation for the notorious anti-Islam video.

4) ‘Diabolical’ Obamacare Will Introduce Totalitarianism

Only in the skewed reality of the Radical Right is the Tea Party made up “mostly of moderates,” but that’s exactly what televangelist Rick Joyner writes in his recent “special bulletin.” Joyner claims that the “moderates” of the Tea Party are the only ones standing up to the Democrats and Republicans (who are also liberal) in fighting the “diabolical legislation” of Obamacare.

Failure to oppose Obamacare, Joyner writes, is treasonous:

Where are the leaders who will stand against these most deadly threats to our freedom? It will not be those who are more concerned about their re-election than keeping their oath to defend the Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic. Obamacare is the greatest attack yet to come upon America, our Constitution, and our liberty, and it is coming from within. It is a domestic attack that our elected officials and all other officers swore an oath to protect us from.

Due to Obamacare, the government will soon have “totalitarian control” over America, he adds.

3) ‘Guerrilla Warrior’ Garrow

We haven’t heard much recently from Jim Garrow, the far-right activist who wants Obama to be executed before he beheads (or nukes) Americans. But don’t worry, Garrow is still convinced that President Obama is this close to destroying America.

“His marxist muslim favorings lead to the trashing of the Judeo-Christian roots of America and its blessings from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. To sing the praises of allah and to replace the God that loved us enough to send His own Son to die in our place as a propitiation for our sins, with the death cult of the muslim is to insult the very basis on which the nation is founded,” Garrow writes on Facebook. “The arrogance of this man knows no bounds and will result in the death of this republic unless we stand tall and show him the door after telling him the meaning of ‘no.’”

He also reiterates his call for guerilla warfare against the government:

Will you arm yourself and provision yourself and have a plan for the defense of your families? Will you set aside food and other provisions that will carry you when society crumbles either from within or from wanton attack? Will you commit yourself and your family to the defense of America in the homeland? If you are nodding your head in agreement then I want to challenge you to learn the skills and tactics of the guerrilla warrior.

2) Liberal Jews Want Second Holocaust

Yesterday on NewsMax TV, David Horowitz said that President Obama is intentionally destroying America and Israel, but no one dares to criticize him “because he’s black.”

“Obama is the Manchurian candidate, he represents America’s enemies and he has just cut us off at the knees,” he said. “He’s a traitor, you have to look at Obama as a traitor, he supports the enemy.”

Horowitz also criticized left-leaning, “Jewish enemies of Israel” groups such as J Street, saying “so-called liberalism is now an enabling force in a second Holocaust, genocide.”

1) God Will Punish America For Gay Marriage

During yesterday’s March for Marriage, sponsored by the National Organization for Marriage and several other anti-gay groups, we learned from speaker after speaker that they are there to preach a message of love, including the loving message that God is about to destroy America if the public continues to support marriage equality.

Pennsylvania GOP politician Sam Rohrer told the crowd that same-sex marriage is threatening to “destroy” American society and “invite God’s judgment on the nation”; New York State Sen. Ruben Diaz railed against “Satanic” forces deceiving young people; and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee feared that Americans will soon reject God’s “hand of blessing” and as a result “feel his hand of judgment.”

Rafael Cruz Preaches Seven Mountains Theology, Tells Activists To 'Stop Electing The Village Idiot'

Rafael Cruz, the father of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and a regular campaign surrogate, delivered his usual stump speech at today’s Road to Majority summit, filled with David Barton-inspired pseudo-history and Christian Nationalism. Echoing Barton, Cruz preached Seven Mountains Dominionism, which as we have noted in the past seeks to give right-wing Christians authority “over the seven forces that shape and control our culture: (1) Business; (2) Government; (3) Media; (4) Arts and Entertainment; (5) Education; (6) Family; and (7) Religion.”

While preaching against the separation of church and state and the supposed “onslaught against Christianity and against righteousness” in American culture, Cruz said the church should have “an influence upon every area of society.”

“Indeed we should have an influence upon arts and entertainment, upon media, upon sports, upon education, upon business, upon government,” he continued.

Later, while criticizing the “lies” of the Obama administration, Cruz delivered a crowd-pleaser: “Stop electing the village idiot!

Gary Bauer Warns Obama Is 'Obsessed' With Gay Issues, Will 'Destroy' The Republic

Gary Bauer told the audience at today’s Road to Majority summit that President Obama is “obsessed” with gay issues, an ironic statement for a conference full of activists who have dedicated their political careers to opposing gay rights.

Bauer later said that Obama “repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell for homosexuals and replaced it with Don’t Ask Don’t Tell for Christians.” He added that if the president’s “secular” agenda is successful, “the Republic will be destroyed.”

Not Even The Texas GOP Chairman Will Defend His Party's Support For Ex-Gay Therapy

While Rick Perry tried his best to justify the Texas Republican Party’s recent embrace of ex-gay therapy by making an awkward comparison of gay people to alcoholics, the chairman of the state party refuses to mount a defense of the controversial resolution.

In fact, Texas GOP chairman Steve Munisteri says he opposes ex-gay therapy, and criticized Eagle Forum activist Cathie Adams for inserting the ex-gay language in the platform.

“And I just make the point for anybody that thinks that may be the possibility: Do they think they can take a straight person to a psychiatrist and turn them gay?” Munisteri said.

Munisteri said he’s not the only one who opposes this plank in the party’s platform.

“My emails and phone calls to the office are running overwhelmingly opposed to that plank in the platform,” Munisteri said.

Munisteri said a group of Republicans at the convention led by his predecessor, Cathie Adams, were able to pass the reparative therapy resolution using a parliamentary trick.

“Because the way the platform works, once somebody calls the question on the platform it’s a parliamentary maneuver," Munisteri said. "The delegates are really forced to pass the platform as is, because if you don’t there is no platform.”
