Rep. Chris Smith Claims Obama Ignores Religious Persecution Overseas, Only Cares About 'The LGBT'

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins said that the violent persecution of Christians in the Middle East is closely connected to “the religious intolerance that is growing here at home” under the Obama administration.

His guest, Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., agreed with his assessment of Obama’s purported “animus towards promoting religious freedom.”

The congressman alleged that the Obama administration is ignoring anti-Christian persecution because White House officials are either nonreligious or hostile to religion. According to Smith, they only care about “the LGBT, the abortion that is being promoted so aggressively overseas.”

Pat Robertson: 'Girl-On-Girl Movies' Make Young People Think They're Gay

Today on “The 700 Club,” a viewer asked host Pat Robertson how she should handle the news that her 21-year-old daughter is in a same-sex relationship. In response, Robertson gladly offered up some of his patented bad advice for the parents of LGBT kids.

“She needs somebody to help her get her identity straight,” he said. “She may not be right in this, she may have thought she has a crush on some older girl along the way and she’s actually homosexual when she’s not, I don’t know. Why is she that way? Was she molested when she was younger?”

After co-host Terry Meeuwsen lamented that people are “telling kids to explore, it’s crazy,” Robertson criticized “the girl-on-girl movies” where “they’re getting straight actresses to play lesbians and straight men to play homosexuals and if you say anything against homosexuality you are just hooted out of court.”

“You need to love your daughter and give her a chance to work this out because if she gets deeper and deeper in it, sooner or later she is going to be disillusioned and say, ‘this is wrong, I want to come out of it,’” he added.

Tony Perkins: 'Homosexual History' Among Schools' 'Liberal Landmines'

The Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins wants parents to understand the grave dangers of public education before school starts this year, warning in his radio commentary today that schools are inundated with “propaganda on everything from sex education to homosexual history.”

He advises listeners to learn about the “liberal landmines” in public schools before educators work to “undermine what you believe.”

It may be the kids who are heading back to school — but it's parents who need to do their homework! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. You've bought the books and you've packed their lunch, but there's one thing kids shouldn't leave home without and that is your values. These days, all sorts of negative influences are pushing their way into the classroom and undermining what you believe. Students are exposed to propaganda on everything from sex education to homosexual history -- and it's becoming tougher for parents to navigate the liberal landmines. FRC wants to help by giving parents some free back-to-school resources. Log on to tonyperkins.com today and you'll be able to download pamphlets like "Homosexuality in Your Child's School" or "Common Core Math" and "Common Core English." The only way we can help our kids tackle the tough questions is by getting involved in what they're learning. On family values, parents are more than our first teachers -- they're our last defense.

Michael Savage: Obama Is Wiping Out Americans Through Diseases Carried By Migrant Kids

Conservative talk show host Michael Savage said yesterday that Congress should impeach President Obama over his handling of unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border, saying that the president wants America to be “invaded by Third Worlders who are diseased.”

Savage said Obama is deliberately “dumping these children” in the U.S. so they can bring exotic diseases that will “wipe out” Americans.

As we have noted, there is absolutely no evidence of a connection between the Central American children and an outbreak of a respiratory illness in the Midwest.

Of course, Savage insists that he is “just asking the question” whether “Obama’s dumping of illegal aliens into America” led to an outbreak of disease.

“I can’t prove it,” he noted, before ranting against the “Stalinists” at the CDC who don’t believe his conspiracy theory.

Pat Robertson: '700 Club' Rerun Saved A Woman From Death

Pat Robertson informed viewers today that he once saved a woman “in Africa” who was “watching a tape of ‘The 700 Club’” just as a “group of thugs came into her house and threatened to kill her.”

“While the program I was on the air, I began praying, this is a tape mind you, and the power of God fell so strong that those thugs were literally paralyzed and they began to run from the house they were so terrified because of the power of God on that program, on that tape,” he said.

Robertson was responding to a viewer who asked if his “words of knowledge” about viewers, which he says can heal members of his audience, can work for people watching reruns of the show.

Ben Carson: Obama Turning America Into Cuba, A 'Socialist/Communist' Nation

In an interview on Ohio Christian University’s “Faith & Liberty” radio show posted last week, potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said that President Obama doesn’t “have the same worldview” as the typical American. Carson, who has previously implied that Obama is a Nazi and a communist, said that the president is bent on introducing “government control of everything” by “getting rid of God” in order to bring about communism.

You look through history, you look at Cuba, you look at Russia, you look at a lot of places that have a socialist/communist base, but previously they didn’t have that and they were a free society. What happened that’s common in every one of those societies? Two basic things. You get rid of God — and you see the attack on God in our country that is going on right now — that’s number one because you have to replace God with your dogma, you have to become the primary authority of everything. And the second thing you have to do is you have to gain control of your people, and the best way to do that is you take over health care. Everybody needs health care, you get control of that. Get rid of God, get control of health care and you’re well on your way to fundamentally changing society.

He also lashed out at the media for its supposed liberal bias, warning that the left-wing bias has become so egregious that it is “destroying” America…except for Fox News, of course, which he said has saved America from Obama’s socialist schemes.

Carson hailed Fox News, where he works as a contributor, for stopping Obama from turning America into Cuba: “If there were no Fox News and if there was no conservative radio, we would already be Cuba. I know [Obama] realizes that they’re impeding his agenda of fundamentally transforming this nation into something else, the sad thing is that a lot of the people that agree with him and support him have no idea what they’re wishing for.”

He went on to say that liberals in the media seek to “demonize” and “destroy” their opponents, something Fox News would never do.

While he praised Fox News and conservative talk radio, Carson said the media “failed our society” by “taking sides” in political debates.

He recounted a story where he apparently out-argued and shamed “two senior editors of a major national newspaper” until they admitted that they were biased in favor of Obama and enabling him to “ignore laws” and “ignore the Constitution” and therefore “contributing to the destruction of our society.”

Linda Harvey: 'Homosexual Indoctrination' And LGBT Books Lead To 'Nightmares, Panic Attacks, Deep Depression'

Mission America’s Linda Harvey has a back-to-school message for parents: beware of homosexual indoctrination!

“Don’t let your schools get away with homosexual indoctrination,” Harvey warned in her daily radio commentary today. “Your children’s physical, moral and spiritual future is at stake.”

Harvey attacked Gay-Straight Alliance clubs for supporting “the deviance of homosexual behavior for vulnerable kids” and promoting “homosexual perversion.” She also said that “wild liberals” on school teaching staffs plan to “normalize deviance.”

Later in the radio bulletin, Harvey said educators who make available “pornographic,” “anything-goes,” LGBT-inclusive literature — which she described as “trash” — are harming children: “Who cares if they have nightmares, panic attacks or go into deep depression?”

Ben Carson: Evolution Is An Absurd Myth, 'Give Me A Break'

In a “Faith & Liberty” interview posted last week, potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson discussed his rejection of the theory of evolution, arguing that the science of evolution is a sign of humankind’s arrogance and belief “that they are so smart that if they can’t explain how God did something, then it didn’t happen, which of course means that they’re God. You don’t need a God if you consider yourself capable of explaining everything.”

He claimed that “no one has the knowledge” of the age of the earth “based on the Bible,” adding that “carbon dating and all of these things really don’t mean anything to a God who has the ability to create anything at any point in time.”

Carson pointed to the “complexity of the human brain” as proof that evolution is a myth: “Somebody says that came from a slime pit full of promiscuous biochemicals? I don’t think so.”

He said evolution is unable to explain the development of an eyeball: “Give me a break. According to their scheme, it had to occur over night, it had to be there. I instead say, if you have an intelligent creator, what he does is give his creatures the ability to adapt to the environment so he doesn’t have to start over every fifty years creating all over again.”

Carson also said he hopes God will intervene to expose the truth about Obamacare.

Arguing that Obamacare will lead people to lose their health coverage — even though the opposite is happening — Carson said he has “prayed to God that he will expose even to people of low information what is going on. Sometimes things have to be so blatant, it’s like hitting them over the head with a two-by-four, before people wake up.”

Carson ended the interview by warning that Christians in America are facing widespread persecution and religious hostility.

“They’ve been bludgeoned into silence,” he said.

Ben Carson Joins Far-Right Outlet WorldNetDaily

It appears that in 2016, there will be two GOP presidential candidates who have worked as columnists for WorldNetDaily: Rick Santorum and, as announced today, Ben Carson.

Back in July, Carson sat down with WND editor Joseph Farah to discuss why he believes that drug reform laws are meant to distract from Benghazi and that President Obama is a Leninist.

As we have noted on previous occasions, WND is a birther, racist outlet which has suggested that Obama is a secretly gayMuslimcommunistdemon-possessed dictator who is setting up concentration camps and cattle cars for his planned holocaust.

WND, nonetheless, remains influential in right-wing circles and has access to high-ranking Republican politicians. Another likely Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Rand Paul, even cited the website’s “reporting” to substantiate one of his Benghazi conspiracy theories, while admitting: “I don’t have any proof.”

In fact, “I don’t have any proof” is a great way to describe WND’s style of journalism.

Chris McDaniel Will Demand A New Election Until He Is Declared The Winner

Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel is somehow still appealing his election loss to Sen. Thad Cochran, insisting that according to his magic math he was the real victor of June’s Republican primary run-off.

In an appearance on the Tea Party News Network’s “The Capitol Hill Show with Tim Constantine” this weekend, McDaniel said “we are fighting for our lives now as conservatives.”

“They need to order a new election, at the very least,” he said.
