Ralph Reed Claims 'The Last Acceptable Form of Bigotry' Is Directed Against Evangelicals

Anti-gay activist Ralph Reed of the Faith & Freedom Coalition stopped by former congressman J.D. Hayworth’s NewsMax show, “America’s Forum,” today to warn that “bigotry against evangelical Christians is the last acceptable form of bigotry left in the country.”

Fittingly, Pat Robertson’s protégé made the comments after Hayworth delivered a rant about how Muslim-Americans are supposedly imposing Sharia law in Minnesota.

Eric Metaxas Points To Gay-Inclusive Churches As Proof America Is Turning Into To Nazi Germany

Yesterday, Kevin Swanson of Generations Radio posted an interview with conservative author and speaker Eric Metaxas, showing once again that it is almost impossible for a Religious Right figure to be so extreme that others will refuse to associate with them.

While promoting his book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Metaxas said that the emergence of Protestant churches that accept gays and lesbians is proof that the US is turning into Nazi Germany.

“I’m talking about the theological liberals in the mainstream church that is just getting off in a whole other direction where they are just failing to teach biblical orthodoxy, failing to teach the Bible as the word of God and yet they still think of themselves as the church,” he said. “We see that obviously happening in issues of sexuality, but how can you say that most mainline denominations in America today are profoundly Christian when they have given up the ghost on all of these fundamentals of the faith? You had the exact same thing happening in Germany. It’s just setting things up so that when evil comes, where do people turn?”

Swanson agreed that the “abortion holocaust” and the “significant rise of homosexuality, something that Nazi Germany was seeing in the 1920s and 1930s,” show that America is on its way to Nazism.

One Year After Release Of Autopsy Report, GOP Still Caving To Voices Of Extremism

Last year, we noted five ways in which Republican leaders were either ignoring or directly contradicting the recommendations put forth in the party’s post-election “autopsy report,” which called for a more diverse and modern GOP with a broader appeal. Today, on the first anniversary of the report’s release, it is clear that those who opposed the plan for a more inclusive party have prevailed, succeeding in moving the GOP even farther to the right.

Republican leaders seem to be accepting — albeit not openly — the pleas of right-wing pundits for the party to embrace ultraconservative views and veer away from outreach to young voters and people of color. These activists have called for the GOP to become a party focused on appealing exclusively to white voters with a mixture of Tea Party populism, Nativism and social conservatism.

This tension within the party has played out the most clearly in the debate over comprehensive immigration reform, in which reform advocates found themselves facing a wall of opposition from vocal activists. Many of these activists used the immigration debate to outline their vision for the party’s future, urging the party abandon immigration reform and instead work to increase its share of the white vote.

The extremists won the debate. The House Republican leadership has refused to even hold a vote on immigration reform and have approved only draconian bills that would curtail the rights of immigrants.

The GOP’s extreme right wing kept the party from taking up immigration reform by putting forward a political strategy argument backed by wink-and-nod racism.

Conservative luminary Phyllis Schlafly spent the year arguing that Latino voters are culturally resistant to Republican principles because they “don’t really understand our country.”

“The people the Republicans should reach out to are the white votes,” Schlafly said, arguing that Latinos are more likely to vote for Democrats over Republicans because they haven’t been sufficiently “Americanized.”

Rep. Michele Bachmann also warned that immigrants will usher in a far-left government that will jeopardize the future of America. Rep. Paul Broun similarly claimed that immigration reform is a plot to “destroy our country” by “keep[ing] Democrats in power for perpetuity.”

Pat Buchanan, true to form, was upfront about the strategy to stop immigration reform and expand the Republican share of the white vote. Buchanan wrote that just as the GOP used the Southern Strategy of racial polarization to win an overwhelming share of the Southern white vote, Republicans should adopt a new strategy “to increase the enthusiasm and turnout among [white voters] for the GOP” by “demand[ing] the sealing of America’s borders against any and all intruders.”

The Center for Immigration Studies, a leading voice on the anti-immigrant Right, also told Republicans no t to bother appealing to the Latino community and instead to frame Democrats as the “party of minorities.”

The GOP has also failed to make good on its promise to appeal to young and LGBT voters by moderating its hardline opposition to LGBT equality.

Last summer, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus reassured the Christian Broadcasting Network that the GOP is not becoming more tolerant and even lauded former governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, a stringently anti-LGBT politician, as “a model for a lot of people in our party” on dealing with social issues.

Priebus was apparently under pressure from social conservatives like National Organization for Marriage founder Maggie Gallagher, who demanded that the party amplify its right-wing social agenda and avoid “adopting a suicidal political strategy.”

While Republican leaders say that the will accept openly gay Republican candidates for Congress, they have not budged on any items important to the LGBT community, blocking even the consideration of legislation to prevent job discrimination or inequality in the immigration system. Republican lawmakers have also pushed bills designed to roll back LGBT rights, such as the State Marriage Defense Act and the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act, and have challenged the Justice Department’s treatment of marriage equality laws.

It seems that the GOP has only committed itself to changing semantics and appearances, but is still committed to the same right-wing agenda that was soundly defeated in 2012.

Garrow: Obama Blew Up Missing Malaysia Airlines Plane

Right-wing conspiracy theorist Jim Garrow took to Facebook over the weekend to allege that President Obama blew up the missing Malaysia Airlines plane as part of his “jihad” against China.

The Story (or distraction)

So let me get this straight. A fly by wire capable jet goes missing. It is on one course, turns and goes in almost the opposite direction on a heading which would take it to the US base at Diego Garcia. The plane has 20 technology nerds aboard who happen to work for China designing "classified" leading edge computer/internet control software and are carrying the matching hardware with them on the plane. They are heading to Beijing with all the others. We are shown pictures of muslim looking men as if they are on the plane....setting up the expectation that the plane has been hijacked. Convenient story line so far.

While we are down the rabbit hole this far, lets [sic] go all the way. The jet lands by wire at Diego Garcia, the appropriate hardware and software is offloaded as are the nerds. Interrogation proceeds and all the "secrets" you would want to gain from this "intervention" are gleaned from the assets.

You now load everyone back on board the plane and have it take off headed back to where it was supposed to go and at 35,000 ft altitude it implodes/explodes and the debris field is now found. How they missed it in the beginning is a mystery. But the western mindset is already prepared to believe that all things eastern and "Malaysian/Indonesian/Muslim" are barely able to tie shoelaces let alone search an ocean.

So what do you think so far? "Am I right or am I right" spoken in the voice of the nerdy insurance salesman "Ned" in Groundhog Day.

America/Obama gets the information that they want, who cares if a bunch of innocent people have to die (Obama -"I am pretty good at killing people.") and more lies per minute have to fly to cover this huge piece of cow manure over.

Welcome to the world of the marxist muslim amateur Obama and his new found friends, the Chinese. Yes, I did say friends. After all he just gave control of the internet to "the world" and just by happenstance his brother Mark, whose partnership with the intelligence community of China I let the world know about in an earlier missive. Betrayal and treason are the mainstays of this America hating fraud in the Oval office. Hows that jihad coming along Barry?

Sandy Rios: Austin Ruse Was Merely Using 'Words Of Life' When Saying Professors Should Be Shot

Yesterday, American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios defended her former guest host Austin Ruse after his comment that liberal professors should be “taken out and shot” caused AFR to cut ties with him. Rios said on her show that comments like Ruse’s are really just “words of life” because they warn people like liberal professors that they will be condemned by God and sent to Hell.

“Austin was talking about the damage that’s being done to innocent children in our culture, whether it’s our children in public schools, whether it’s those of you who handle and mold and shape their minds in colleges and universities,” she said. “If you are in the business of defiling them, of perverting their innocence, of sexualizing them, it isn’t us that condemns you, it’s God himself.”

Rios also said she would have said the same thing as Ruse in private conversations, just not on the radio.

Austin Ruse sat in for me last week, and Austin brings to this microphone such experience and intellect and passion and I love that about him. Toward the middle of the week, he made a statement that was picked up by one of the left-wing posts and it was taken and run with. It was probably an intemperate remark, it reminded me of something I would’ve said, I could’ve easily said what Austin said, I think any of us could. In conversation sometimes we’ll be saying something—I might not say this on the mic—but I would say this to my friends, ‘Just kill me, just put me out of my misery.’ Or I would say something, ‘They should all — they all ought to be all — whatever.’ I think we’ve all in intemperate, uncareful moments of passion said things like that, but you can’t say that at a radio microphone without their being some sort of response to it, so that’s what Austin got, a big wave of negative response.

BarbWire: Gay Rights 'Has Its Roots In Hell,' Championed By 'Godless Human Minions Of Satan'

BarbWire columnist Gina Miller is upset about beer companies dropping their support for St. Patrick’s Day parades that discriminate against gays, warning that “the rapid, head-spinning empowerment of the radical homosexual movement under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is part of God’s judgment on this nation.”

She adds that people and companies who have “caved to the homo-fascist pink fist” need to know that “homosexual behavior is depraved behavior” and will always be sinful “no matter how thick and smothering the black blanket of Sodom and Gomorrah ends up being in the United States.” In fact, Miller warns that gay rights laws are part of Obama’s “brutal tyranny” and their “roots in Hell.”

“Many of us are watching the dark clouds of evil that are rolling across America, and we are saying it’s the Lord’s judgment on a nation that has spit in His holy face by using the force of law to expel all vestiges of Him and His Truth from the public square,” Miller warns. “The Godless human minions of Satan are aggressively working to use the force of law to mandate perversity all across our land, in all our institutions, government, military and corporations.”

Erin go Gay, as they say today! In the latest high-profile example of large companies bowing in subservience to the altar of homosexual debauchery, three major brewing corporations have bent to homosexual intimidation and pulled their sponsorship of the New York and Boston St. Patrick’s Day parades. The makers of Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams beers have all caved to the homo-fascist pink fist, while countless conservatives have sworn never to buy those beer brands again.



The militant homosexual activists wrongly declare that this is about “equality.” That is nonsense. Homosexual behavior is depraved behavior, and it should never be put on the same level as the normal, healthy relationship between a man and wife. The only thing to which homosexual behavior is equal is sin, because that’s exactly what it is and what it will always be, no matter how thick and smothering the black blanket of Sodom and Gomorrah ends up being in the United States.

Many of us are watching the dark clouds of evil that are rolling across America, and we are saying it’s the Lord’s judgment on a nation that has spit in His holy face by using the force of law to expel all vestiges of Him and His Truth from the public square. I firmly believe this is true. I also believe that the rapid, head-spinning empowerment of the radical homosexual movement under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is part of God’s judgment on this nation. Obama himself is part of God’s judgment. Many times in the Old Testament, we have seen the Lord inspire the enemies of Israel to come against it and defeat it when it turned from the Lord. He has installed wicked rulers to impose brutal tyranny on unrepentant people and nations.



No, it’s not at all the kind of law of America’s foundation. It is a strange law, but not a new one. It’s ancient and has its roots in Hell. The Godless human minions of Satan are aggressively working to use the force of law to mandate perversity all across our land, in all our institutions, government, military and corporations. These three beer makers are just the latest to publicly cave.

There is no doubt that America is on a very dark road, and how bad it’s going to get remains to be seen. We are now being ruled by truly evil people with reprobate minds who have nothing but disdain for the God of all creation. The American people themselves, demonstrating their own moral decay, have voted these leaders into office, although I know that ultimately, it is God in His judgment Who has installed these tyrants to rule over us.

Catholic Leader Resigns From Austin Ruse's Group Following Remarks About Shooting Professors

Not only did Austin Ruse lose his gig guest hosting at American Family Radio after calling for left-leaning professors to be shot, but he has now lost one of the board members of his lobbying organization, the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (C-FAM).

Yesterday, Faithful America launched a petition asking Monsignor Anthony Frontiero of the St. Joseph Cathedral in Manchester, New Hampshire, to resign from C-FAM’s board of directors. Today, Frontiero informed Faithful America in an email that he has resigned.

Besides Ruse, there are now just two members left of C-FAM’s board of directors: John O’Sullivan, a conservative columnist and former aide to Margaret Thatcher, and Robert Royal of the Faith and Reason Institute, a Catholic think tank.

Ruse apologized for his remarks on Friday, but only after going on a diatribe about how he had nothing to be sorry for and was being unfairly smeared by the left.

You can listen to Ruse’s original comments, in which he blamed women’s studies professors for a Duke University student’s decision to go public about her work in the pornography industry, here:

Peter LaBarbera Warns Gay Rights Advocates Are 'Trying To Steal Christianity'

Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera is outraged by the existence of Christian gay rights supporters and is afraid of a plot to "steal Christianity."

During Saturday's edition of Mission America Radio, LaBarbera told host Linda Harvey that columnist Kirsten Powers' opposition to Arizona's "right-to-discriminate" bill is proof of the warning that "there's a huge movement on the left" to "steal Christianity to make it pro-sin, pro-homosexuality."

Harvey agreed and said that people are "sick and tired" of the gay rights movement: "There is no evidence homosexuality is inborn, it's a learned desire and behavior and so we just have to keep standing on that truth and we know tons of people agree. You've had calls recently with people out of the blue are saying, 'I want to be involved,' who have never been involved before. They are sick and tired of it."

BarbWire: 'A Perfect Type Of The Antichrist Is Barack Obama'

BarbWire columnist Michael Bresciani writes today that gay rights advocates and President Obama are paving the way for the emergence of the Antichrist.

In fact, according to Bresciani, the Antichrist leader during the End Times will be a lot like Obama: "Being the incarnation of the Devil himself means that his view is always the exact opposite of God and is always wrong. A perfect type of the antichrist is Barack Obama.​"

"Gay marriage and abortion, Obama’s preferred social causes, are antichrist in nature​," he writes, warning that Obama is pursuing America's "destruction."

Nowadays, anyone calling out the sin is called a hater of the sinner. The lawless then turn to the law to force acceptance of their lawlessness. It is a vicious cycle that leads to destruction.

If you want to lust for those of your own gender you must be protected by the law to do so, and even the suggestion of someone counseling you to avoid the temptation must be silenced. Several states have adopted laws to stop counseling to change the minds of youngsters who are inclined toward their own sex.

The law of God is being sidestepped by popular trends, PC notions of diversity, and the ‘new morality,’ which is only amorality (disregard of all morality) passing itself off under a new name.

Changing the laws is a means of changing definitions of social institutions to remove from life any borders or parameters that define good and evil.

When all of this reaches its peak we will be ready for the world’s last dictator: a ruler long prophesied to come in the last days. He will be called the “lawless one” (2 Thess 2:8 NAS) according to the Apostle Paul.

A ruler who lives without laws may seem like the perfect non-sequitur until it is revealed that the antichrist changes the laws to fit his own view of right and wrong. Being the incarnation of the Devil himself means that his view is always the exact opposite of God and is always wrong. A perfect type of the antichrist is Barack Obama. He rules, but according to — mis-rule.

Gay marriage and abortion, Obama’s preferred social causes, are antichrist in nature. Then there are his anti-American policies such as coddling our enemies, blocking the recovery of our own natural resources, jumping headfirst into the great global warming hoax, allowing government agencies (IRS) to push his political agenda, and the wasting of the lives of soldiers and public servants without anyone answering to the law (Benghazi).

...

The Bible says that when a nation chooses to ignore its sinfulness, God will not only allow them to go reprobate, but will empower them with rulers who will enable them to succeed in their drive to destruction.

Many of today’s best theologians, preachers and ordinary citizens alike see leaders like Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi as the fulfillment of this Biblical principle.

The first sign that reprobation is making its approach is that behaviors that once made us blush are now celebrated shamelessly. Then we see yet more headlines to confirm that we are well underway in our new, poorly chosen, direction.

Tom Tancredo Says GOP Can Win Over Latino Voters While Blocking Immigration Reform

In a column today for WorldNetDaily, Colorado gubernatorial candidate and former congressman Tom Tancredo lauded the House GOP for refusing to put immigration reform up for a vote, arguing that Republican intransigence on immigration will have no impact with Latino voters.

Tancredo, a leader of the Nativist movement, even lectured Republicans on how to appeal to Latinos.

"Republicans do indeed need to improve and expand their outreach efforts in Hispanic communities, and they can do so without the baggage of the amnesty debate," Tancredo said.

It was only a year ago that the Republican establishment was enthralled by the so-called bi-partisan “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill, which grants legal status to 15 million illegal aliens and sets them on a path to eventual citizenship. That scenario ended in Sen. Rubio’s repudiation of the deal, followed by backroom congressional maneuvers to plan amnesty by stealth in 2014.

Well, amnesty by stealth is also on the rocks, despite Zuckerberg’s millions, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce drumbeat, an avalanche of insulting lectures from the chairman of the Republican National Committee, a continuous stream of propaganda in the mainstream media and stacked pro-amnesty panels at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference.

Throughout 2013 and into 2014, the Beltway plutocracy had its run of the field in demanding “immediate action” on amnesty. But that game is over. Suddenly, common sense is breaking through the fog of self-delusion that has led the Republican establishment down so many blind alleys.

...

And what about Hispanic voters? The Gallup poll shows the same pattern as most previous polls going back to 2008. Hispanic voters rank immigration behind jobs, health care and education, which explains why they are increasingly dismayed by Obama’s performance as president.

What does all this mean for 2014 and 2016 elections? It means the Republican establishment should wake up and smell the coffee.

If Republican leaders and Republican candidates will start talking to Hispanic citizens as Americans who have the same hopes and dreams and fears as other citizens, they can and will win increased Hispanic support. Republicans do indeed need to improve and expand their outreach efforts in Hispanic communities, and they can do so without the baggage of the amnesty debate.
