Sprigg: ENDA Is Legislating Immorality

The right-wing freak out over ENDA continues to build after the Senate HELP committee approved the anti-discrimination legislation with bipartisan support. Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council appeared on The Janet Mefferd Show yesterday to stoke fears about the bill, arguing that it is an effort to legislate morality, but it’s not our morality, it’s not Christian morality, it’s the immorality of those who accept homosexual conduct.” Sprigg, who infamously called for gays and lesbians to be exported from the US, said ENDA represents a “direct assault on moral values.”

Lutzer: Legalizing Gay Marriage Like Drilling a Hole in a Boat

Erwin Lutzer, pastor of the Chicago-based Moody Church, appeared last month on The John Ankerberg Show to discuss the “Five Disturbing Changes Facing Our Nation” – including growing support for LGBT equality. While discussing efforts in Illinois to pass same-sex marriage legislation, Lutzer warned that the gay rights movement will lead to a “tsunami” of anti-Christian persecution and warned against tolerating marriage equality laws.

According to Lutzer, same-sex marriage cannot “coexist” with opposite-sex marriage because “same-sex marriage legalized breaks down the family in some very, very important ways.”

Marriage equality, Lutzer predicts, will lead to societal collapse just like drilling a hole will sink a boat: “I can imagine someone riding in a boat saying, ‘I have a constitution right to drill a hole through my side of the boat.’ The problem is we are all on the same boat.”

Buster Wilson Is Back To Save America

After leaving the American Family Association for mysterious reasons, Buster Wilson on July 4 announced the formation of a new group, “2Chronicles 7:14, America’s Deliverance!,” with the extremely catchy acronym 2C714AD.

“America’s problems are greater than ever before, and the truth is, UNLESS GOD HEAL’S OUR LAND…..we’re doomed!,” Wilson warns.

On July 4th, 2013, I attempted to launched a nation-wide movement to turn the CHURCH, the People of God who bear His Name, to obey those four straight forward conditional commands that will bring about the healing our precious land so desperately needs! … This movement is being blessed with a team of fellow Believers who have a burdened heart to see our land healed! The Advisory Board is under development, and will be made up of people who are one in purpose and mission. The movement’s advisors will be a broad cross section of leaders in the Kingdom. Denominational and Church leaders, housewives, students, bikers, ministers, authors will all share a deep desire and burden for God to heal our country! There is that one, deep burden to see true revival, another great spiritual awakening, come to our land. America’s problems are greater than ever before, and the truth is, UNLESS GOD HEALS OUR LAND…..we’re doomed! And less you think “doomed” is too great a term to use, read a later post this week as we describe the undeniable condition of irreversible death that characterizes our nation’s moral, spiritual, financial, racial, and economic conditions!

So how is this group different from every other Reigious Right group you might ask? Well, you see, 2C714AD will stand against the “baby killers [and] sexual perverts”!

First of all, most people feel that they’ve done nothing “wicked”. Wicked things are reserved, in our minds, for those baby killers, sexual perverts, etc. But when we look at the list of items in God’s Word that He defines as wicked in His sight, we find lying, not being thankful, disobedient to parents, along with sexual sins, murder, etc, etc. The Biggest problem we will have to obtaining Healing For Our Land is that far too many of us will feel we aren’t wicked, and thus, have nothing to “turn from”! Before I was born again, God had to adjust my thinking about myself. I said I was a sinner, but I didn’t really believe that I had truly sinned against God. We must ALL realize that we are living wickedly before God in this country! 55 million babies killed in their mother’s womb since 1973……The President and now the Supreme Court has declared that which God calls an abomination as being not only as OK, but desirable and demanded that it be acceptable to us all (homosexuality – forget what society says about it. Read the Bible for your self and see what GOD has to say about it!). We ARE a wicked people. Murder is on the rise. Divorce is at an all time high. Child abuse is rampant. Human sex trafficking is becoming a major item in this country. I could go on and on and on. We should NEVER debate the face of whether or not we are a wicked people with wicked ways! GOD SAYS TO TURN FROM THEM! God says to REPENT! That is His ONLY answer for what to do with wickedness. And remember dear reader, He is saying this to HIS CHURCH! The People who bear HIS NAME! We of ALL people on the planet should know what it is to repent of sin, and should be ready to do so in order to see healing. Go to God NOW, get on your knees and cry out to Him for pardon and cleansing from the wickedness of your life and the life of your nation!

Dean: 'Homosexual Radical Community' Is 'Aiming At Our Posterity'

In a recent interview on The Talk to Solomon Show, Bradlee Dean rehashed ex-gay activist Greg Quinlan’s claim that Justices Elena Kagan and Anthony Kennedy voted to strike down part of DOMA because they themselves are gay.

“We have Elena Kagan and we have Justice Kennedy who we know that are homosexuals,” Dean said. “The American people have been under assault by less than 1.7 percent of the population known as the homosexual radical community over the last five years.”

Later, Dean warned that “this agenda” is “aiming at our posterity,” with President Obama’s assistance: “Barack Hussein Obama has appointed over 224 radical homosexuals to federal government positions in your country, not a Third World country, and even transvestites to go along with it.”

Anti-Muslim Activist Upset Huma Abedin Walks On Streets That Were In 'Ruins and Ashes and Smoke at 9/11'

Conspiracy theorists Frank Gaffney and Diana West yesterday took turns attacking Huma Abedin, the top Hillary Clinton aide and wife of New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, and insisted that the media is covering up her ties to Muslim terrorists. Gaffney and West, like other anti-Muslim activists, encouraged Michele Bachmann’s witch hunt against Abedin. The two have long engaged in baseless conspiracy theories; for example, both are birthers and Gaffney thinks Obama might be a secret Muslim

Yesterday on Secure Freedom Radio, West accused the media and government officials of orchestrating a “suppression of the facts” about Abedin…just as they supposedly repressed the truth about the “Communist penetration” of the government in the 1950s.

She went on to say that Abedin either “lied on her security clearance form or someone had to intercede” in order to gain a security clearance while working at the State Department.

West maintained that Abedin presents a “nightmare” scenario for the FBI and scolded her for having the gall to campaign in New York with her husband over a decade after 9/11 attacks.

“This is the kind of nightmare that an FBI agent looking at security form, his head would be exploding,” West told Gaffney, “but somehow this woman got into this position and now continues campaigning on the streets of New York City where over a decade ago we were in ruins and ashes in smoke at 9/11.”

Harvey: Homosexuality A 'Huge Threat to Children' that Involves Them in 'Depravity'

Linda Harvey told listeners last week that she is “incredibly tempted to say something like ‘I told you so’” after reading the news that Girl Scouts marched in the San Francisco Pride Parade. She said that the “primary reason” her group Mission America exists is because she sees homosexuality as a “huge threat to children and therefore to the stability and future of our country.”

“The picture here is obvious to all of you who’ve been following the destructive impact of this movement that these are the symptoms of a culture in meltdown,” Harvey said, “The involvement of children in more and more episodes of depravity is truly a new low.”

Bauer: African Americans Should Be More Grateful That 'Every Major Goal of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Has Been Reached'

In an email to supporters of his Campaign for Working Families today, Gary Bauer wondered why African Americans are still so upset about racism and continue “falling through the cracks” when “every major goal of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has been reached.”

In the email — “Will Holder Persecute George Zimmerman?” — Bauer laments that discussions on race can’t happen in America because “it inevitably degenerates into another round of bashing non-minorities and an indictment of America’s past sins.” Social services, “‘gangsta’ culture” and a lack of patriotic education, Bauer claims, are the real culprits for problems in the black community.

I wish we could have a real national conversation about race. But whenever the left calls for such a discussion, it inevitably degenerates into another round of bashing non-minorities and an indictment of America's past sins.

There is a lot we could legitimately discuss. For example, is racism growing among blacks? According to a recent Rasmussen poll, a plurality of blacks (31%) believe most blacks are racist, while only 24% of blacks believe most whites are racist. How does one explain that?

Why is it that every major goal of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has been reached -- from voting rights to non-discrimination in housing and employment -- yet so many minority children are falling through the cracks, educationally and economically?

Why is the "gangsta" culture so prevalent in minority areas and why don't urban politicians condemn it?

What is causing the massive breakdown of the black family? It can't be the legacy of slavery. As Dr. Walter Williams has rightly observed, "The welfare state has done to black Americans what slavery couldn't do, what Jim Crow couldn't do, what the harshest racism couldn't do. And that is to destroy the black family."

Of course any conservation about race in America must begin with this truth: God created us all in His image and that is the basis of our equality. "All men are created equal," as the Declaration of Independence says, and are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." That is the basis of our dignity and worth. Just think, if we were actually teaching that in our schools!

Rep. Ted Poe: Justice Department Review of Zimmerman Case an 'Abuse of Power'

Conservative outlets have continued to spread the repeatedly debunked story that the Department of Justice had a role in the public demonstrations that followed the killing of Trayvon Martin, and the fallacious account has naturally been embraced by at least one House Republican.

In an interview with Lars Larson yesterday, Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) called the DOJ’s review of the George Zimmerman case “a political decision based upon the prejudice of the Justice Department” and a move by the Obama administration to use “the Justice Department for its own political gain.”

“The call that the Justice Debarment, before the trial ever began, went to Florida and stirred up public support for the prosecution of Zimmerman; the Justice Department has no business ever doing that in any case,” Poe told Larson. But as Fox News reported, the DOJ only sent mediators whose responsibilities focused on “how to manage crowds and easing tensions” during the protests.

“The Justice Department has shown its bias, Eric Holder showed his bias when he talked about it; I call him Eric With-holder because he withholds so much information from Congress.”

The congressman lamented that Zimmerman may now “have to suffer the consequences of abuse of power by the United States Justice Department.”

Kirkorian Warns of Third Party if GOP Doesn’t Block Immigration Reform

Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies is warning House Republicans that a third party may emerge if they don’t block immigration reform. While speaking to Sandy Rios of the American Family Association yesterday, Krikorian maintained that while it is right for Republicans to “fear” that “amnesty and increased immigration will import lots of Democratic voters,” the more immediate problem for the GOP is a third party.

“It will be a disaster for Republicans,” Krikorian said. “It is a danger that if they pass something terrible a lot more

Republican voters are just going to stay home and you can even see third parties coming up in different elections. Heck even Sarah Palin has toyed with the idea of a third party if they pass this immigration bill so I don’t think they realize how dangerous this is politically from their perspective.”

Krikorian and Rios agreed that apathy among conservative voters was to blame for Mitt Romney’s defeat last year. In fact, the turnout among self-identified conservatives in 2012 was around the same level as in the 2008 and 2004 elections, and Romney won 82% of such voters.

Krikorian accused “political elites and the political consultant class” of attacking the GOP’s position on immigration in order to hide the party’s problems on “economic policies or foreign policies or their candidate that all have very strong constituencies defending them and so they find something that they can attack without any donors being upset because it’s being attacked.”

Robertson: George Zimmerman Right to Follow Trayvon Martin Because Criminals Wear Hoodies

Pat Robertson yesterday berated the media for portraying Trayvon Martin as a “little boy” instead of a “fully-formed young African American male.” Robertson defended George Zimmerman after co-host Terry Meeuwsen pointed out that a 911 operator told Zimmerman not to follow Martin. “There’s been some crime in this area and the criminals were wearing these hoods so it’s one of those things,” Robertson said.
