Religious Right Anti-Immigrant Group Warns Non-Christian Immigrants Will Encourage Sex Trafficking

Conservative activist Kelly Monroe Kullberg recently formed Evangelicals for Biblical Immigration as a response to the pro-reform Evangelical Immigration Table, and her new organization has received support from immigration critics like the American Family Association.

Like other Religious Right groups such as Eagle Forum and Family Research Council, the AFA is a staunch opponent of immigration reform and spokesman Bryan Fischer has even called for the US to require that all immigrations convert to Christianity and enforce a ban on Muslim immigration.

AFA talk show host Sandy Rios spoke to Kullberg this week about the supposed dangers of the Senate reform bill, including the laughable claim that the legislation will lead to “open borders” and therefore a rise in sex and human trafficking.

She also warned that people of “other faiths” and “incompatibly worldviews,” especially Muslims, will flood into America and “lessen the value on human life” in the US, making sex trafficking more acceptable. “As Islam takes root in America and other traditions take root, we are seeing a decline in human worth, human value and a rise in trafficking,” Kullberg said.

Swanson: Halloween Comes From Noah's Flood

We’re sorry that our post on Kevin Swanson’s Halloween special came too late for anyone who already took part in the demon sex holiday, but the Colorado pastor has some important anthropological findings that we need to share. According to Swanson, Halloween actually goes back to Noah’s Flood.

He claims that Noah’s son Ham celebrated the dead from the flood as part of his rejection of God and that Halloween and similar holidays are really a way to ignore God by celebrating “the departed souls and spirits of those who had vanquished in the Flood.”

Paranoia-Rama: This Week In Right-Wing Lunacy - 11/1/13

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

In our latest installment, we learn about new fake dangers of same-sex marriage, real dangers of falling for satire and the true perils of peering too closely into Bryan Fischer’s head.

5. Gay Marriage Leads To Self-Marriage

We have already heard that gay marriage will lead to dog-man, box turtle-man and Eiffel Tower-man marriage, but apparently person-on-self marriage is on the way too. In a last ditch campaign to block a marriage equality bill, Hawaii Family Advocates is playing up the slippery slope argument, warning that same-sex marriage may lead to a person marrying themselves. The group also warned of “polygyny, polyandry, bi-sexual marriage, group marriage, concubinage, beastiality [sic],” leading us to wonder if they understands what the word bisexual means.

Not to be outdone, the Hawaii Republican Assembly warned the “destructive wake of homosexual marriage” will force churches to marry same-sex couples and have five-year-old kids learn about “the gay and lesbian lifestyle.”

4. United Nations To Seize The Alamo

Shockingly, Tea Party activists in Texas and Alex Jones of InfoWars have been pushing a conspiracy theory concerning the United Nations, Democrats…and the Alamo. The conservatives warn that the designation of the Alamo as a UNESCO World Heritage Site will put the compound under the control of United Nations bureaucrats, all with the help of the Democratic Mayor of San Antonio Julian Castro. The Texas Land Commission notes that the UNESCO designation will change nothing about the Alamo’s ownership or operations, but such claims are nothing new: Texas’ junior senator Ted Cruz promoted claims that the United Nations, George Soros and various municipal officials are going to abolish golf courses and paved roads using Agenda 21.

3. Sharia Law In Dearborn…Again

The satirical National Report article, “City in Michigan First to Fully Implement Sharia Law,” has made such waves that the city it referenced, Dearborn, has had to issue a statement to reassure people that no, the city is not under Islamic rule. But people may just believe that Mayor Jack O’Reilly’s denial of an article from a spoof website is probably just a sign that he is practicing taqiyya, as anti-Muslim politicians continue to actually believe that the Michigan city operates under Sharia law. The mayor’s analysis is spot on: “The National Report’s misguided attempt at humor furthers the goals of some people who have tried to suggest that the city of Dearborn is anti-American because our population includes residents who are Muslim.”

In fact, the National Report article appears to be plagiarized from a very real article from The Guardian on Sharia law in the country of Brunei.

2. EPA Gun Grabbers!

Steve Benen flags this right-wing conspiracy about how gun activists claim that an EPA regulation on pollution is actually a backdoor plan to push “gun control behind the scenes,” pointing to the recent closure of a smelter in Missouri. Seeing that Gun Owners of America claims that health care reform was really just a big push to disarm Americans and send gun owners to concentration camps or electro-shock therapy, the claims that Obama will use the “the environment as a pretense to go after a lead smelter so bullets will be scarce and more expensive.” As Benen notes, however, the EPA enforced the rules against the smelter in 2008 under the Bush administration.

But as we all know time has a liberal bias.

1. Military Will Kill Christians

Over the last several years the American Family Association has been predicting that the military under President Obama will start going after Christians in US, and 2013 is no different as AFA spokesman Bryan Fischer last week charged that service members may begin to use “lethal force” on Christians and “turn [their] takes” on conservative organizations like the AFA. He even said “it would not be illogical next year at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C.,” referring to the annual Religious Right conference, “that military troops surrounding the Omni Hotel.”

We look forward to Fischer making the exact same prediction for every remaining year of Obama’s term.

Rick Wiles Explains How Miley Cyrus Sold Her Soul To Satan And Had Sex With A Demon

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles got so upset about a photo with Miley Cyrus next to a skeleton that he invited Joe Schimmel of Good Fight Ministries onto TruNews to discuss how Cyrus is supposedly promoting Satanism after making “a deal with Lucifer.”

Wiles called Cyrus the “poster child” for the “Synagogue of Satan” and asked, “any wonder whom she serves as her soul’s master?”

After warning that Cyrus has been “baptized into the Illuminati,” Schimmel said that Cyrus was actually imitating the Hindu goddess Kali during her performance at the VMA’s.

“There’s definitely a spiritual thing going on,” Schimmel continued, “she’s basically, at least symbolically, showing how to have sex with some Satanic figure.”

Fischer: America Needs A Christian President Who Will 'Exorcise The White House'

Responding to a story about how Presidents Reagan and Truman reportedly saw ghosts in the White House, Bryan Fischer tweeted that the White House needs an exorcism once voters elect a “Christian president.”

Maybe Fischer should talk to his pal Gordon Klingenschmitt, who on his TV show tried to exorcise a demon from Obama.

E.W. Jackson: 'Deliver' Gays From 'Destructive' Lifestyle; Obama Will 'Teach Children Homosexuality'

Now that Virginia Republican lieutenant governor nominee E.W. Jackson is simply denying that he ever said anything that could be considered to be anti-gay, we’ve decided to post a few more clips of Jackson saying things that are totally not at all hostile to gay people.

In a Virginia Family Foundation speech last year, Jackson mocked President Obama for supporting marriage equality and for admiring same-sex couples, adding that he wants to “deliver” gay people:

That individual homosexual who is caught up in that lifestyle we love and so desperately want to see that person delivered; that woman who is contemplating abortion who is confused and emotionally distraught and has been misled by bad information, we love her, we desperately want to help her; but these folks who have it in their minds as homosexual activists and abortionists to fundamentally transform our country, they’ve got a fight on their hands and we are not ashamed of it.

But apparently Jackson actually is ashamed of it because he is now outright lying about his anti-gay views.

Jackson also criticized Obama in a 2012 interview with Religious Right activist Dean Welty, arguing that the president is “shaking his fist at God” and belongs to a party that has “declared war on God” by supporting marriage equality. In fact, he suggested that Obama supporters are “unclean” and that they have denied Jesus Christ and are worshipping Obama instead.

He even claimed that Obama “will force schools to start teaching all children homosexuality.”

He tried to explain his anti-gay viewers at an event earlier this month at Patrick Henry College, a conservative school that pushes anti-gay politics.

Jackson told his audience at Patrick Henry that gays and lesbians don’t face discrimination in society and that he is not anti-gay but only wants gay people “to do what we think will be helpful to them and productive for them rather than destructive.”

FRC Asks God To 'Intervene To Prevent; ENDA From Passing

The Family Research Council is asking its members to pray against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which they claim will require employers to “give special treatment to LGBT employees” and instill an “anti-Christian bias in business.”

The group urges members to pray that ENDA will “be decisively defeated” and ask God to “intervene to prevent furtherance of this law, which would plant homosexuality even more deeply into the fabric of our society.”

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) will be brought to the Senate Floor as early as next week. ENDA will impact private and public employers and workplaces like the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell impacted the U.S. Military. Military leaders and chaplains are now caught in crises of religious conscience over elevating homosexual rights above religious liberty. Christian service personnel are bearing the brunt. Employers and employees will similarly be required to give special treatment to LGBT employees. This law would mandate the employment of homosexual, bisexual and "transgendered" individuals in inappropriate occupations, disregarding the fact that sexual conduct may be relevant to employment. ENDA would open America's businesses to a host of lawsuits and, I predict, more anti-Christian bias in business, just as is now happening in the military.

May ENDA, first introduced in 1996, be decisively defeated. May deceptive and inadequate religious liberty amendments not distract Congressmen from taking a principled stand on the issue. May God intervene to prevent furtherance of this law, which would plant homosexuality even more deeply into the fabric of our society. Bring millions who need Christ into His kingdom, including those involved in sexual sins, both homosexual and heterosexual

E.W. Jackson Resorts To Lying To Duck Questions About Anti-Gay Rhetoric

The Republican nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia has contorted himself in all sorts of ways to dodge questions about his extremist record, arguing that anyone who simply quotes his past statements is violating the Constitution or persecuting him or misrepresenting him.

But since very few people would actually take his absurd objections seriously, Jackson has now resorted to lying.

During an interview with WUSA, he denied ever having said that gay people are “sick” or that God will stop blessing the military over gay rights. He said that such direct quotes are “absolutely, categorically not true.”

Unfortunately for Jackson, we here at Right Wing Watch have the audio of him making the very statements he is now denying he ever made.

Last year, we captured audio of Jackson calling gay people “perverted…sick people”:

And we recently posted video of Jackson suggesting that the military will lose God’s favor over same-sex marriage.

In fact, Jackson has made plenty of other viciously anti-gay remarks in the past.

Dave Weigel provides video of the WUSA interview, noting that Jackson is “just lying his head off about what he said in the past”:

Rachel Maddow points out that “Virginia Republicans’ last minute plans for this election appear to be to try to convince people that they have not said things that they have said on tape.”

 

Kincaid: Obama & De Blasio Leading Communist-Islamist Takeover; Inviting Another 9/11

Rick Wiles invited Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media onto TruNews this week to discuss Kincaid’s recent press conference which called New York mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio a tool of “international communism, terrorism, and global Islam.”

“We’ve got the Communists coming together, personified by de Blasio’s past, present and future, and you have the Muslims in alliance with him,” Kincaid said, arguing that de Blasio is “setting the city up, and the nation, for another 9/11.”

Wiles couldn’t believe that anyone could be more of a Communist than Obama, and claimed that the Democratic Party is now run by Communists.

But while de Blasio may be even more radical, Wiles said that Obama is still the “perfect political hybrid, a Marxist Muslim” who is currently “orchestrating this alliance to dismantle the United States of America.”

Kincaid: He’s probably even more openly Communist, more of a radical than Obama himself.

Wiles: That’s hard to believe. What we have now is that the present day Democratic Party is the Communist Party, I really believe it. The Communists decided decades ago, they realized they’re never going to be elected in this country as Communists, they infiltrated the Democratic Party and over decades they took it over. Now, we’ve got people openly running as Communists, they don’t deny their Communist sympathies and nobody is blinking an eye about it, it’s quite normal now.

Kincaid: This is the case, certainly in the case of de Blasio. This guy’s more open than anybody.



Kincaid: This is the city of 9/11 and [blogger] Trevor Loudon says what’s happening to New York City with this candidate is the perfect storm. We’ve got the Communists coming together, personified by de Blasio’s past, present and future, and you have the Muslims in alliance with him. Together, this is the critical thing, in dismantling the NYPD’s counterterrorism programs and decimating its intelligence bureau, you are setting the city up, and the nation, for another 9/11.

Wiles: And in the White House is the perfect political hybrid, a Marxist Muslim who is in the White House right now and is orchestrating this alliance to dismantle the United States of America.

Charisma: Sandra Day O'Connor Bringing God's Judgment By Officiating Wedding For Gay Couple

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor recently conducted a wedding at the Supreme Court for Jeffrey Trammell and Stuart Serkin, and Charisma magazine is warning that as a result divine retribution is right around the corner. Charisma posted a Reuters article by Lawrence Hurley and gave it the title: “Is Judgment Far Off? Gay Wedding Ceremonies Taking Place at US Supreme Court.”

The magazine asked readers to “sound off” by responding to the question: “Is this a prophetic sign of the state of our nation? Does it bother you that gay weddings are taking place at our nation’s High Court?”
