Harvey: Homosexuality Is A Lot Like Overeating

Linda Harvey says gay people aren’t all that different from those who struggle with eating too much and obesity. The Mission America president argues that, like overeating and having unhealthy appetites, homosexuality is not innate and can be unlearned:

Many people struggle with appetites for food that lead to obesity but very few were born with a hormonal imbalance leading to weight gain, almost everyone learned these appetites along the way so unlearning them will also be a step-by-step process but it is most certainly possible, starting with facing the truth. It’s kind of similar with homosexual feelings. But no, the world’s message today is go for it, declare yourself and join the out-and-proud community.

Harvey claims the gay community relies on “feelings, identity and behavior: FIB…. And yes, that’s exactly what homosexuality becomes if acted upon. It’s a big lie.”

Trump: I'm A Great Christian Who's Angry the Unemployed 'Get Better Benefits' than People with Jobs

Donald Trump is totally serious this time about maybe running for president, and to prove it he is appearing at The Family Leader’s upcoming conference in Iowa alongside Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, Steve King and Brian Brown. He chatted with conservative talk show host Steve Deace on Tuesday about why Religious Right voters should love the thrice-married casino magnate.

Trump said he is a “pro-life,” “very, very, pro-family” Christian. “I’m a Presbyterian and a good one,” Trump elaborated. “A lot of people ask me about my children, how did you get them so they’re not drinkers and they’re not on drugs and you know lots of good things.”

Plus, he has a “great relationship with the church” and people love him: “Tickets are going at a rate like they’ve never gone before, maybe it’s one of the other candidates but you know what, I doubt it.” “I know some of the people that are candidates and the Republicans are not going to be winning with these people,” Trump continued.

Trump showed off his conservative credentials by making the absurd claim that “people don’t work, they don’t have to work, they get better benefits if they take it easy, which is unfair because the people that are working are paying for that.”

Barack Obama Is The New Mao Zedong

Jerome Corsi and Sandy Rios got together once again yesterday to discuss how the left is destroying America, and the two agreed that President Obama is basically operating like Mao Zedong. Corsi alleged that the left “engineered” the breakdown of the family in order to grow the size of government and increase racial polarization: “This demonizing on race which Obama does, you know Obama is a race divider because it riles up his base, it’s Saul Alinsky.”

“Mao Zedong did that in China,” Rios added. Corsi argued that Obama is stoking racial and class divisions in order to concentrate power and ultimately “crush the middle class and get rid of the press.” “Which is what’s happening,” Rios replied.

Corsi concluded that the left started the NSA surveillance program in order to “crush opposition” and introduce fascism.

Erik Rush: Africa and India Colonized Because Their People Seemed 'Only A Few Steps out of the Trees'

WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush is upset that Americans may appreciate other (read: inferior) cultures, lamenting that it all started when “the Beatles brought East Indian culture to the West.”

Rush asks: “Why in the world ought America be more like India? It was their culture that gave the British the impression they were only a few steps out of the trees, so India was colonized. The same goes for Africa.”

He goes on to explain that it is all part of a communist conspiracy, of course, that seeks to “insidiously break down our sense of national pride” and establish “slavery to elites.”

Still, for many years, I have puzzled over Americans who become inordinately and superficially enamored of foreign things. We’ve all seen the plight of starry-eyed young American girls who fall in love with a mass media-proffered stereotype of some romantic foreign male, then run off and marry one, only to discover that the man’s culture is frighteningly cloying and patriarchal, sometimes dangerously so. They wind up losing their children to a parental kidnap, or having to escape a sadistic family situation in a misogynistic regime somewhere, coming to the heartbreaking realization that their studly beau was only looking for a quality breeding cow.

We’ve also witnessed the fads that have come and gone from overseas – sometimes not going fast enough – having been brought to light by the media or some celebrity du jour. In the 1960s, the Beatles brought East Indian culture to the West, and the ripples of that introduction are still passing through the lives of Americans in the form of yoga and other such pursuits.



Why in the world ought America be more like India? It was their culture that gave the British the impression they were only a few steps out of the trees, so India was colonized. The same goes for Africa. Contrary to the claim of liberals, these things have far less to do with race than they do with culture. Here, it bears mentioning that the British did not have nearly as easy a time with China. One will also note that in recent years, both India and China have prospered by becoming more like America, rather than the reverse.

To be entirely truthful, I would have no qualms with a one-world government, had the world’s leaders determined that the American paradigm represented the most prudent course to take. But global power players have opted for a collectivist thugocracy in which cheap hustlers, decadent old-money deviants and narcissistic elites will rule like princes over us all.

Americans have the right to take a measure of pride and satisfaction in their accomplishments. It’s taken 50 years for America’s enemies to insidiously break down our sense of national pride and pervert those accomplishments into atrocities with their lies, and the collectivist (some would say communist) movement behind it has been under way for nearly a century. Thus, it will take time and monumental effort to reverse this.

But more than that, it will take the will to do so. The enemy is determined, well-entrenched and possesses the will to do things many Americans cannot yet conceptualize. They have shown that they will go to any lengths to fulfill the leftist agenda, so we must be unapologetic in our resolve and practically militant in the delivery of our message.

America’s founders were willing to risk death to break free from slavery to elites. How many are willing to take the same risk now to prevent us from slipping back into it?

Fewer Than Ten People Show Up For Ex-Gay Pride Event That Expected to Draw 'Thousands'

Yesterday, American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios spoke to Ex-Gay Pride Month organizer Christopher Doyle about today’s ex-gay lobby day on Capitol Hill. Doyle, who was organizing the since-canceled Ex-Gay Pride banquet at the Family Research Council, complained in an interview with the Christian Post that “un-American” LGBT rights advocates have “shut us out,” explaining that “because of all this homo-fascism and indoctrination in the media, ex-gays aren’t given a fair shake.”

Rios confidently predicted that “thousands of ex-gays are descending” on Washington for a press conference planned for today at the Supreme Court. She lamented that when she led Concerned Women for America the media refused to hear “our ex-gay friends” because it “undermined the whole effort of the homosexual lobby.”

Doyle told Rios that “tens of thousands” of ex-gays exist but are “in the closet because of fear, shame and threats from gay activists.”

Well, despite the expectation that “thousands of ex-gays” would partake in Ex-Gay Pride Month, fewer than ten people showed up for the big event.

Besides Doyle, ex-gay activists Greg Quinlan of Parents and Friends of Gays and Ex-Gays (PFOX), Richard Cohen of the International Healing Foundation and Douglas McIntyre of Homosexuals Anonymous also participated.

Donohue: Gay Marriage 'One of the Most Bizarre Ideas in History'

NewsMax TV interviewed Bill Donohue of the Catholic League yesterday where he spent most of the interview explaining that he, like the Catholic Church, has no problem with gay people as long as they are celibate or married to someone of the opposite-sex. After Donohue argued that the only purpose of marriage is procreation, host David Nelson asked him what he thinks then of married heterosexual couples who can’t have children.

Donohue said there is nothing sinful about that…since they will serve as “ready substitutes” who will raise kids whose parents have died.

He then launched into a tirade against same-sex marriage, which he said is wrong because it doesn’t have enough support from religious groups and called it “one of the most bizarre ideas in history.”

LaBarbera: 'Martin Luther King Would Be Rolling Over in His Grave' About LGBT Rights

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association yesterday ranted against policies to accommodate transgender students in California and Massachusetts, even claiming that the Bay State’s “horrible” trans-inclusive guidance represents a “nightmare, Sci-Fi scenario.” While speaking with Americans For Truth About Homosexuality head Peter LaBarbera about a recent move by the Justice Department on behalf of transgender students, LaBarbera called it “public policy insanity.”

“The transgender movement shows the absurdity of the whole LGBT notion of civil rights,” LaBarbera told Rios. “Martin Luther King would be rolling over in his grave if he saw what civil rights has become according to Eric Holder.”

At Iowa Summit, Religious Right Activists Hope to 'Change the Direction of the Wind' Against the 'Gay Agenda'

We have been posting videos and reports from the recent Religious Right gathering in Iowa as they become available – so far we’ve seen Rand Paul warning of the country’s collapse and Ted Cruz repeatedly attacking gay rights.

Today, the 700 Club finally featured a segment with additional footage from the summit. CBN’s David Brody interviewed chief organizer David Lane, who has predicted divine punishment on America in the form of car bombings, along with billionaire brothers Dan and Farris Wilks, the latter of whom told Brody that he is upset about the rise of the “gay agenda.”

Brody also showed footage of right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton praying over Cruz and conservative pastor Laurence White telling activists that they can sway politicians if they “change the direction of the wind.”

Fischer: Anthony Weiner Running for Mayor to 'Create an Opportunity for More Jihadist Activity'

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer yesterday alleged that former congressman Anthony Weiner is running for mayor in order to “create an opportunity for more jihadist activity” as part of a Muslim Brotherhood plot, led by his wife Huma Abedin. Fischer, who on Monday said that Abedin seeks to “destroy Western Civilization,” claimed that Weiner is running for mayor in order to “pull back” on the NYPD’s surveillance of the city’s Muslim community and aid “Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood and their agenda to exterminate and destroy Western Civilization.”

Harvey: Dying Gay Ohio Man Should've Married A Woman, Merely Pretending to be Married

Ohio-based Religious Right activist Linda Harvey today expressed outrage that a district court judge ruled on behalf of a gay couple, who are both Ohio residents but were married in Maryland, against the state’s ban on same-sex unions. One of the men has Lou Gehrig’s disease and is seeking to have his partner listed on his death certificate as his surviving spouse and be buried in the same family plot.

Harvey called their lawsuit “nonsense” and charged that if the men wanted to be married, they should have married women: “There’s no discrimination or inequality, either of these men could be married to a woman.” She said that the couple is in a pretend marriage, just like a girl who pretends to be a doctor simply because she believes she is one:

Can marriage just be what anyone thinks it is? Here’s a possible analogy. Sophie wants to be a doctor, she’s never gone to medical school but in her mind she’s qualified to treat patients, even perform surgery. But the law only allows the practice of medicine by those who have attended medical school, passed the state board exams and so on. But isn’t this unequal protection? Aren’t Sophie’s fantasies valid? She believes she should be allowed to practice medicine therefore the requirements to be a licensed MD are unconstitutional for her.

That’s right: a married gay person is no different than an unlicensed surgeon.
