Janet Porter: My Prayers Got Bush Elected President, Can Also Overturn Marriage Equality Decision

Janet Porter, the right-wing conspiracy theorist and creator of the anti-gay film “Light Wins,” reveals today that her prayers reversed the results of the 2000 presidential election to ensure that President Bush was the victor in Florida.

Since her prayers got Bush elected president, Porter explains, her prayers can also reverse the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality.

Porter is urging Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine to demand that the Supreme Court rehear the marriage case, but this time without the presence of Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whom Porter believes should have recused themselves because they had officiated at the weddings of same-sex couples.

“[I]f God can change the outcome of a presidential election,” Porter explains, “he can change the outcome of a Supreme Court ruling.”

In the 2000 Presidential election, between George W. Bush and Al Gore, I lived in a place called Broward County, Florida. When they declared the state of Florida–and the election–for Al Gore, I, like so many others, got down on my knees and asked for something that had never been done before. I asked for God to change the outcome of the election. You know what happened: He answered that “ridiculous” prayer. And if God can change the outcome of a presidential election, He can change the outcome of a Supreme Court ruling. Ask Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine to file a motion for rehearing the marriage case at: 800-282-0515 . Then, pray to the God of the impossible.

Franklin Graham: God May Smite Obama With Lightning In Gay Marriage Punishment

Franklin Graham has a warning for President Obama: Watch out for God’s wrath!

On his Facebook page yesterday, Graham wrote that the White House’s decision to celebrate LGBT Pride month and the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision with rainbow colors may incite a lightning strike from an angry God.

Graham previously warned that Obama’s support for marriage equality is ushering in the End Times:

Roy Moore: Gay Marriage Will 'Destroy The Nation,' Obeying Akin To Following Nazi Orders

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore sat down with anti-choice activist Randall Terry yesterday to make his case that states should defy the Supreme Court’s decision striking down same-sex marriage bans, with the two pointing to the Nuremberg trials following World War II to justify such defiance.

Both gay marriage and the war crimes committed by the Nazis violate “higher law,” Moore said. He also invoked the Vietnam War to claim that people who recognize the decision on marriage equality are no different from people who commit war crimes and say they are just “following orders.”

Terry pressed Moore on whether states should secede from the union over the issue of gay marriage, but Moore only went so far as to say that state officials should not “obey an unlawful order.”

“I think it is going to destroy the nation,” Moore said. “We’re supposed to be a free people and if this carries out the way I think it’s going to carry out, it’s going to be very doubtful.”

Roy Moore Hopes 'We Don't Have A War' Due To Gay Marriage

Yesterday, anti-choice activist Randall Terry posted an interview with Roy Moore, the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and a leader in the conservative movement to defy the federal courts on marriage equality.

Moore told Terry that religious “persecution is just beginning” because Americans will be “forced to accept evil” and “condone sodomy,” which the two agreed will lead to a massive and possibly violent backlash. “I hope we don’t have a war, I hope we don’t have conflicts but we definitely need to recognize that same-sex marriage is something that has not existed on a government level,” Moore added.

After Moore said that the founding fathers would be “incensed” at the court’s decision, Terry claimed that if the founders rebelled against the British over taxes, they would have certainly also led a revolution over an attempt to “make the colonies into Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Moore has previously warned that marriage equality will lead to divine retribution and “literally cause the destruction of our country.”

Later in the program, Moore alleged that the Supreme Court, like King George III before it, is a tyrannical force trampling on freedom. When Terry pushed Moore to reveal whether he believed that there should be an anti-gay revolution, Moore only said that 2015 is just like 1776.

Moore also advised governors to defy the Supreme Court’s ruling because it “doesn’t follow the Constitution,” while Terry urged governors to declare that “this decision is from Hell, literally from Hell, and tell the justices take it back to Hell where it came from.”

Dinesh D'Souza Posts Fake Photo Of Hillary Clinton With Confederate Flag

UPDATE: D'Souza changed the Facebook post to read: "Even if the #ConfederateFlag was edited into this Hillary photo, WHAT is going on with those glasses and that hairdo?"

Right-wing “intellectual” Dinesh D’Souza today tweeted out a photo that purportedly shows Hillary Clinton sitting in front of a Confederate flag. He also shared the image on his Facebook page.

D’Souza isn’t the only conservative to post the picture, despite the fact that it’s fake.

Michael Savage: Obama Is A 'Liberal From Hell' Bent On Destroying America

Last week on “The Savage Nation,” Michael Savage compared President Obama to Andreas Lubitz, the German pilot who deliberately crashed a Germanwings flight in France, killing all 150 people on board.

Savage lashed out at liberals who don’t realize that Obama is a “drunk psychopathic liberal from Hell” who is “driving the plane down into a mountain as fast as you can,” before lamenting that “a man who hates the police and hates the military is commander-in-chief.”

“This man is out to destroy us,” Savage continued, arguing that Obama’s “light dictatorship” is “almost demonic.” Savage added: “It will take an act of God to stop this man from destroying us entirely…. Only an act of God can stop Obama.”

Savage wasn’t done just yet, railing against Obama as a “mad man” who is “a force of pure evil against those of us who are traditionalists, constitutionalists, however you want to put it, he is pure evil, he is the antithesis of everything American.”

Nonetheless, Savage retains hope that divine power will save America and “counter what he is doing to this country.”

Ted Cruz & Glenn Beck Agree: America Facing Imminent Destruction

While much of Ted Cruz’s interview with Glenn Beck last week focused on the supposed dangers of marriage equality, the two did find time to condemn the “liberal media” and warn of America’s looming downfall.

Cruz claimed that while “left-wing reporters” may seem nice, “they hate us.” He told a story about how he warned a staffer that such reporters “want to destroy you” and “take your life and fillet you on the front pages,” insisting that members of “the mainstream media” are “protecting Barack Obama and they are ready for Hillary.”

Things only went downhill from there:

Beck: We are facing, I think, destruction—
Cruz: Yes.
Beck: As a nation, I think we’re off the Constitution. Would you agree with that?
Cruz: Yes, absolutely.
Beck: Especially with the rulings last week, we are just making it up now as we go.
Cruz: Yes, yes.
Beck: So if we don’t correct it now, we’re done.
Cruz: It is now or never.

Ted Cruz: Gay 'Propaganda Effort' To Blame For Marriage Equality Victory

In an interview with Glenn Beck last week, Sen. Ted Cruz said that the two recent Supreme Court rulings on the Affordable Care Act and marriage equality are “some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history” because they represent, as Beck put it, “the end of the Constitution.”

“This is hand-in-hand with a concerted assault on religious liberty and a concerted assault on the Judeo-Christian values this country was built on,” Cruz said of the marriage ruling, dismissing polls showing growing support for gay rights as biased since “it is very easy to design a poll to get the result you want.”

“We are seeing a propaganda effort from the mainstream media and from Hollywood” to legalize same-sex marriage, he added. “This notion that gets repeated everyday on the mainstream media is baloney.”

Meanwhile, Beck congratulated himself for courageously resisting the temptation to ask Cruz about his theory that the NSA is “blackmailing” Chief Justice John Roberts.

Ted Cruz: Obama Attacking 'Jewish Churches' Over Gay Marriage

In an interview with Glenn Beck last Thursday, Ted Cruz once again badly misrepresented an exchange between Solicitor General Donald Verrilli and Justice Samuel Alito during Supreme Court arguments on the constitutionality of gay marriage bans, telling Beck’s listeners that the Obama administration may soon try to strip churches of their tax-exempt status if their pastors refuse to officiate gay couples’ weddings.

Hyping these unfounded fears, Cruz also said that the Justice Department will similarly target “Jewish churches” that refuse to perform same-sex marriages. (This is not the first time Cruz has spoken of the plight of “Jewish churches”).

Earlier in the program, Cruz agreed with Beck’s assessment that people “who practice real religion” may be “done” as a result of religious hostility in America.

“Christians are being persecuted, people of faith are being persecuted for following biblical teachings on marriage,” Cruz said. “If people of faith do not stand up in this next election, I fear the greatest nation in the history of the world will be lost.”

Rick Santorum Vows To Stop 'Promotion' Of Gay Marriage In Public Schools

Delivering the keynote speech to a National Organization for Marriage gala last week, Rick Santorum denounced the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality, criticizing the ruling as “a loss for America.”

At the gala, the GOP presidential candidate signed NOM’s candidate pledge, with his campaign boasting that Santorum was “proud to sign and fully support the National Organization for Marriage's presidential pledge.”

As we’ve noted, NOM’s pledge is about much more than simply asking candidates to oppose same-sex marriage.

Santorum also vowed to “prevent the promotion of a redefined version of marriage in public schools and other government entities” and pledged to “direct the Department of Justice to investigate, document and publicize cases of Americans who have been harassed or threatened for exercising key civil rights to organize, to speak, to donate or to vote for marriage and to propose new protections, if needed.”

I, _____________ _____________, pledge to the American people that if elected President, I will:

One, support a federal constitutional amendment that protects marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Two, oppose and work to overturn any Supreme Court decision that illegitimately finds a constitutional "right" to the redefinition of marriage. This includes nominating to the U.S. Supreme Court and federal bench judges who are committed to restraint and applying the original meaning of the Constitution, and appointing an attorney general similarly committed.

Three, conduct a review of regulatory, administrative and executive actions taken by the current Administration that have the effect of undermining marriage and work to restore our policies to be consistent with the proper understanding of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Consistent with this, prevent the promotion of a redefined version of marriage in public schools and other government entities.

Four, support the First Amendment Defense Act and other legislation that recognizes the right of organizations and individuals to act in the public square consistent with their belief that marriage is the union of one man and one woman without fear of retaliation from the government.

Five, direct the Department of Justice to investigate, document and publicize cases of Americans who have been harassed or threatened for exercising key civil rights to organize, to speak, to donate or to vote for marriage and to propose new protections, if needed.
