Pat Robertson: Destroy Greek Sculpture If It Has Demonic Powers

Today on “The 700 Club,” a viewer asked host Pat Robertson whether she should keep, sell or destroy “an alabaster sculpture of the ancient Greek ‘Goddess of the Hunt,’ Diana Artemis,” that she received as a gift from a friend.

Robertson wondered if it was “used in occult activity” and “has demonic power associated with it,” while clarifying that it may be “just a good-looking statue.”

Robertson, who once told a viewer to destroy a Buddha statue in their home, said that “if it is part of an occult ritual, than by all means destroy it; if it just a beautiful ornament, don’t worry about it.”

Rep. Jody Hice: Church-State Separation Encourages Corruption

At today’s Future Conference, Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., sent in a video message where he blasted the “so-called separation of church and state,” which he labeled a “false belief.”

Hice claimed that church-state separation has tricked Christians into ignoring their role in government and, as a result, the government has become more corrupt without the input of “uprighteous, nice people who have moral compasses.”

“There’s excuses like God is sovereign or we’re living in the Last Days and there is nothing we can do to change what’s happening, and listen, those things may be true, but those things never are a reason for us to not engage in what’s happening in our culture,” he added.

Rep. Jody Hice: Secular Government Leads To Gang Violence

Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., told the Future Conference today that the separation of church and state inevitably leads to Big Government. Hice told guests to imagine two towns, one “a secular town" and one “that embraces a Judeo-Christian worldview.” 

The secular town, Hice claimed though he has absolutely no proof, will be so ridden with divorce, teen pregnancy, crime and gang violence that it will require government intervention: “That’s historically accurate.”

On the other hand, the town with a “Judeo-Christian worldview” won’t need a large government presence since it has few social ills.

“I am thoroughly convinced that it is impossible to have limited government in a secular society because of the problems that secularism creates,” he said.

Michael Savage: Pope Francis Like False Prophet 'Directing Mankind To Worship The Antichrist'

Yesterday on “The Savage Nation,” Michael Savage lit into Pope Francis over his encyclical on climate change, calling him “a danger to the world” who wants to impose “global tyranny.”

“The Pope is a Marxist,” Savage said. “He is a wolf in pope’s clothing, he is an eco-wolf in pope’s clothing, he’s a stealth Marxist in religious garb.”

Savage continued that Francis “sounds just like the false prophet in Revelation, an ecumenical spiritual figure directing mankind to worship the Antichrist.”

“I think it is up to the Catholic people to turn their backs on this Pope before it is too late, before they wake up and find out that they are in chains, this man is a Marxist through-and-through,” Savage said, claiming that he was “picked by the New World Order the way Obama was.”

Kevin Swanson: Gay Marriage Will Lead To The Murder Of Christians

Last week, right-wing pastor and radio host Kevin Swanson reacted angrily after prominent pastor Tony Campolo called for “the full acceptance of Christian gay couples into the Church,” a view which Swanson said will pave the way for the persecution, imprisonment and murder of Christians.

Insisting that gay marriage is the brainchild of Nero, the 1st Century Roman emperor, Swanson said that “Nero is never content to just do his homo thing, he’s going to burn Christians. Homosexuality is going to be in the closet or Christians will be in the fire…. Nero is out of the closet and Nero is hell-bent to burn Christians and endorse homosexual marriage.”

“This is a dividing line for the good and the evil,” Swanson continued, claiming that the gay rights movement is part of the “Antichrist” system revealed in the Book of Revelation.

“This is the very essence of the most evil forces that have ever existed in the history of the world as recorded in Revelation 17,” Swanson said. “So please understand that Nero is never content just to do his homo thing, he’s got to torch Christians in his gardens.”

Michael Savage: Use Immigrants To Build The Border Wall, Then Deported Them

Michael Savage is positively ecstatic about Donald Trump’s presidential bid, especially his line that he will “build a great, great wall on our southern border” and “will have Mexico pay for that wall,” an idea that Savage said he is “very honored to tell you that Mr. Donald Trump’s idea to build a wall with Mexico came directly from” his “Savage Manifesto.”

Savage, who has had Trump on his program, said yesterday that he would “use illegal aliens to build the wall” and then have them “repatriated” once the project is finished, all while having notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio oversee the project.

Later in the program, Savage demanded that Mexico pay the U.S. “reparations” and called on Trump to do away with the Constitution’s birthright citizenship provision.

Michael Savage: Gay Rights Advocates Are 'Sick Perverts Running And Ruining America'

Last week on “The Savage Nation,” a caller told radio host Michael Savage that Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are pressuring schools into “using sexuality based sex-ed and opening up their bathrooms to whomever wants to use it.” Savage lashed out at the ACLU as “the most dangerous organization in American history” and “the worst parasites the world has ever seen in this nation” because it seeks to “poison your child’s mind into accepting a perversion that’s beyond comprehension.” 

“Are the straights bullying the gays or are the gays bullying the straights?” Savage continued. “Does anybody tell a gay how to live? No. They wouldn’t dare. Then why do the gays think it’s their right to tell everybody else what to think? Because they can. It was never about equality.”

He added that the “vermin” advocating for gay rights are “sick degenerates” who want to “poison” and “destroy your child’s mind,” adding: “I will not mince words, I don’t care what it costs me anymore, may it be the last day of my broadcast but I’m not going to lie, but I am sick of the sick perverts running and ruining America.”

Alex Jones Cries At Thought Hillary Clinton Will Be President, Threatens To Leave America

Alex Jones today described Hillary Clinton as a Jim Jones-style “cult leader” who is using mind-control techniques to trick and manipulate voters.

The “InfoWars” host was actually so frightened at the prospect of a Clinton presidency that he was brought to tears and threatened to leave the country.

“God, shes going to be president, he said. I can’t even look at it.” 

He later mocked Clinton supporters as “braindead” “fluoride-heads” who are in a trance.

Donald Trump's Five Dumbest Twitter Rants

Renowned Twitter troll Donald Trump announced his campaign for president today and is likely to qualify for the GOP’s upcoming presidential debates. Here’s a look at some of his “finest” Twitter moments.

Religious Right Powerbroker David Lane: 'We Are Mobilizing An Army'

The Washington Times today profiled David Lane, the far-right extremist who is working with the Republican National Committee to mobilize conservatives come Election Day, and trains pastors to get “involved in the ‘dirty’ game of politics.”

These trainings, part of Lane’s effort to recruit 1,000 pastors to run for office, have particularly popped up in early primary states, with one speaker, Bruce Waltke, urging “the righteous” in attendance to “defend against the wicked by vigilant and spiritual warfare.”

Presidential candidates such as Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal and Mike Huckabee, the conservative outlet notes, recently joined Lane’s training sessions or are scheduled to do so (Rand Paul and Rick Perry have also made appearances at Lane’s events).

“Fighting back tears, Mr. Lane prayed for mercy over the 55 million babies that have been aborted since Rove v. Wade, the mounting national debt, the growing acceptance of homosexuality and fears of Islamic terrorism,” the article continued, while adding that Lane criticized Caitlyn Jenner’s “perverse” gender transition as a “mark of a decadent society.”

“We are mobilizing an army,” David Lane, founder of American Renewal, told The Washington Times on the sidelines of the training session, which he named after a biblical tribe of Israel that produced wise leaders.

During the six-hour session, Bruce Watke [sic], author of “Proverbs and Politics: The Biblical Foundation for Righteous Governing,” told the rapt attendees that there has been a misunderstanding of the separation of church and state in politics. He used parables to outline the need for Christians to be involved in the “dirty” game of politics.

“The righteous must defend society against the wicked by vigilant and spiritual warfare. If Christians don’t fight, the wicked will plunder their heritage,” Mr. Watke [sic] said. “With hard work, the wise will prevail over the evil as surely as oil protects iron from rust, as cedar wood protects cloth from moths and salt preserves meat from maggots.”

Dave Hageman and Steve Michael, the young political masterminds behind the American Renewal Project’s $2 million ground game in last year’s U.S. Senate races that helped turn out low-propensity evangelical Christian voters, shared a beginner’s guide on running for office, outlined the mechanics of campaign operations and provided some insight into messaging.



In response to a question about Bruce Jenner, he said he feels sorry for the former Olympic athlete, who now goes by the name Caitlyn, whom he argued needs prayer. He shook his head at the attention the “liberal” media have given to his “perverse” behavior.

“The mark of a decadent society is the exaltation and normalization of sin,” he said. “That is what they are doing.”



Fighting back tears, Mr. Lane prayed for mercy over the 55 million babies that have been aborted since Rove v. Wade, the mounting national debt, the growing acceptance of homosexuality and fears of Islamic terrorism.

Some of the big names in Republican Party politics have taken notice. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, a declared presidential candidate, attended the second training in Oklahoma, and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is expected to enter the presidential race June 24, addressed a training session in Baton Rouge and last week’s session in South Carolina.

Mr. Huckabee is scheduled to appear at the next training session July 10 in Orlando, Florida. Close to 100 pastors have signed up for the event.
