Hutcherson: 'Homosexual Lobby' Is Trying 'To Turn Dr. King into a Queen'

Religious Right and ex-gay groups are up in arms that Washington D.C. mayor Vincent Gray revoked an invitation to gospel singer Donnie McClurkin, who claims that he was “delivered” from homosexuality, to perform at an event commemorating the “March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.” McClurkin has called homosexuality a “perversion” and a “curse,” scolded “evil young hard butch girls,” and described gay men as “vampires” and “vultures” who “prey” on children.

McClurkin and his defenders claim that his heterosexualization, not his anti-gay remarks, got him booted from the event. The ex-gay group PFOX hailed McClurkin as a victim of anti-ex-gay discrimination. “Gays have more power than blacks in [Washington D.C.],” PFOX charged. “As shown with Donnie McClurkin, ex-gays are the most powerless and discriminated against minority in America today.”

Pastor Ken Hutcherson in WorldNetDaily even argued that if “it were up to Mayor Gray, Dr. King wouldn’t even be invited to this event.”

“Unless you’re living a homosexual lifestyle yourself, you aren’t important anymore,” Hutcherson writes. “Maybe Mayor Gray is too spineless to stand up to a homosexual lobby that limits free speech, bullies straights and tries everything it can to turn Dr. King into a queen.”

Of course, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom was organized by a gay man.

Apparently the mayor of Washington, D.C., Vincent Gray, has forgotten his city’s history. When Gray was 20 years old, a Baptist minister by the name of Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial before 250,000 people and delivered what is considered by many to be the most eloquent speech in our nation’s history. The message by this gifted orator was simple: He had a dream. And that dream was the insatiable hope that one day people would learn to look past a person’s skin color and see them for who they were on the inside.

But now that dream has been elasticized. It’s been rewritten and modified. That dream is no longer about ethnic equality; it’s broadened to include anything from sexual orientation to fighting for the rights of illegal immigrants. In short, King’s speech apparently had a few extra pages that he was even unaware of.



You see, in the politically correct times in which we live, sexual orientation trumps everything.

My fellow brothers and sisters with darker pigmentation, please hear me carefully. We are no longer a minority. The liberals have no use for us because they know most of us will pull the electoral lever for them every time. We are taken for granted. Unless you’re living a homosexual lifestyle yourself, you aren’t important anymore. Mayor Gray’s decision to ban a black gospel singer proves that civil rights have turned uncivilized. Let’s be honest: If it were up to Mayor Gray, Dr. King wouldn’t even be invited to this event.

Is this the new face of the black community? Is gray the new black?

Look, maybe Mayor Gray is senile and his memory has faded in the past 50 years. Maybe he’s had a lot on his mind because he’s under investigation for a campaign finance scandal. Heck, maybe the mayor is on the down-low himself. Or maybe the ban on McClurkin is simpler than all of those things: Maybe Mayor Gray is too spineless to stand up to a homosexual lobby that limits free speech, bullies straights and tries everything it can to turn Dr. King into a queen.

Harvey: LGBT Rights Leads to the 'Oppression' of Parents

Linda Harvey of Mission America is furious about the United Nations Human Rights Office’s Free and Equal initiative, warning that it will contribute to the “oppression” of parents and curtail the freedom of speech. She described the campaign, which promotes legal protections based on gender identity and sexual orientation, as “deceptive” since universal rights do not “apply to harmful, high risk, sexual conduct that no one needs to do.”

“No one, if these people have their way, would have the actual universal human right to live out a religious belief that upholds man-woman sexuality within marriage as the standard and all other sexual practices as sinful,” Harvey continued, alleging that the campaign is focused on “denying free speech and other rights, including forcing the indoctrination of children into accepting homosexuality whether their parents like it or not.”

She maintained that the “incidences of oppression and discrimination” by LGBT rights advocates “against people of faith and against parents are piling up.”

Huckabee and Nugent Joke about Hunting Democrats

Mike Huckabee invited NRA board member Ted Nugent onto his radio show today where they kicked off the interview by discussing Nugent’s “mystical, wonderful hunting dog” Gonzo.

“Maybe we ought to turn him loose on some Democrats and see if he can hunt them too,” Huckabee joked, to which Nugent replied: “There’s a lot of varmints out there and I think he would do good pointing [out] varmints and then we can vote them out of office.”

Donnelly: 'Everything We Predicted' About the Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell 'Is Staring To Happen'

During an interview with Janet Parshall, anti-gay activist Elaine Donnelly pointed to a story about a drag performance at an Air Force base as proof that “everything we predicted is starting to happen” about the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Donnelly said that the USO may soon have drag shows and thus creating “social turmoil in the Armed Forces.”

Of course, Donnelly also predicted in 2010 that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell would lead to the reinstatement of the draft.

Bound4Life Hosting Prayer Rally to Sway Eighth Circuit Court to Uphold Anti-Choice Laws

Judges have blocked two laws restricting abortion rights in Arkansas and North Dakota, but the anti-choice group Bound4Life says that through dreams they have received a “divine prayer assignment” to hold a “strategic prayer gathering” in St. Louis, Missouri. The organization’s Red Riders Tour will lead a “silent siege” on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, which is based in St. Louis, to pray that the court will uphold the stringent new laws and “reverse the pollution in the land, which is the shedding of innocent blood.”

Birthers for Ted Cruz

The possible 2016 presidential candidacy of Canadian-born Texas Sen. Ted Cruz presents something of a conundrum for the birthers who have spent the past several years declaring that President Obama was born in Kenya and therefore ineligible for the presidency. While the Congressional Research Service [PDF] and many others hold that Cruz is eligible since his mother is a US citizen, birthers contend that Obama is ineligible to be president since they believe—without any real evidence—that he was born abroad to an American mother.

This weekend, arch-birther Donald Trump tried to avoid a question about Cruz’s eligibility, saying that he wasn’t sure where Cruz was born.

But Lord Christopher Monckton, columnist for the birther “news” site WorldNetDaily, seems to have no qualms about Cruz’s eligibility, writing that he wants to erect a statue of Cruz and can already envision the Texas senator as a successful two-term president:

Ted Cruz is one to watch. And let us not wait until after he has served two spectacular terms as President of the United States before we engage some rising Michelangelo to carve a noble statue of him.

For the newly minted senator from Texas, who has already gotten off to a good start by speaking out against killing little children in their mother’s womb and has proposed to defund ObamachaosTM, now proposes to sweep away the hated, corrupt Infernal Revenue “Service” and replace today’s graduated income tax with a flat-rate tax that is the same for everyone.



Poverty endures solely because the left gain votes from it. Ted Cruz is one of the few politicians in either House of Congress who understand this. And he cares enough to do something about it. That is why he deserves his statue.

Of course, Monckton is a birther. In fact, he wrote an entire report [PDF] alleging that President Obama should and might be removed from office over the issue.

But at the same time, Monckton is perfectly happy with building a Michelangelo-inspired statue of Ted Cruz even before “he has served two spectacular terms as President of the United States.”

Gohmert: Obama Stirring up 'Racial Tension and Violence'

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) yesterday maintained that President Obama is stirring up “racial tension and violence” to a point not experienced in decades. While speaking to conservative talk show host Steve Malzberg about the Department of Justice’s drug sentencing reforms, Gohmert agreed with Malzberg’s charge that the new policy was “insane” but added that he was pleased the DOJ acknowledged the decline in violent crime.

“I tell you what though, in that release there was a great statement that I’m glad somebody in this administration finally admitted because they’re constantly screaming about all the hate violence and all of this kind of stuff,” Gohmert said. “Of course we know that this president and this administration has done more to stir up racial tension and violence than any administration since, you know, the sixties. I thought that we were going to have a post-racial president and he’s become the president of division, of envy, of jealousy.”

“They say on the one hand that violence is up and we got to do all these things, violence isn’t up, it’s down,” he continued.

Watch:

Ruse: 'Most Of The People In The United States' Would Agree With Russia's Anti-Gay Law

C-FAM president Austin Ruse is standing by his firm defense of the Russian law criminalizing speech that is deemed “information about non-traditional sexual behavior” to minors, which he said would even have the support of the American public. While filling in for American Family Association talk show host Sandy Rios today, Ruse discussed the “homosexual propaganda” law that is part of a growing and violent crackdown on the Russia’s LGBT community, arguing that it is “a good thing that there are laws against proselytizing the homosexual lifestyle to school children.”

He then argued that most Americans would be just fine with a ban on pro-gay rights speech: “I dare say that most of the people listening right now and most of the people in the United States would say that it would be inappropriate to proselytize the homosexual lifestyle to school children and that’s what they are doing in Russia.”

Ruse even said that the law was a fair compromise for a parent who “does not believe that this way of life is appropriate or healthy and you do not want this presented in a positive manner to your children,” while on the other hand doesn’t believe “homosexuals should be discriminated against in an unjust way.”

Cathie Adams: Texas Pro-Choice Protest 'What Evil Must Sound like Emanating from the Pit of Hell'

Texas Eagle Forum head Cathie Adams was no fan of State Sen. Wendy Davis’ filibuster, which initially blocked anti-choice legislation in the state, until a second special session called by Gov. Rick Perry revived the draconian bill.

In a newsletter sent to Eagle Forum members last week, Adams writes that the pandemonium in the Senate chambers that occurred after the GOP tried to end the filibuster was demonic: “They stood, applauded and yelled at the top of their lungs. Their excruciatingly piercing screams could only be compared to what evil must sound like emanating from the pit of hell.”

On June 25, the final day of the FIRST special session, pro-life leaders watched and waited in the Senate gallery surrounded by orange clad pro-abortion supporters. We’d already tolerated Sen. Wendy Davis’ 11-hour filibuster followed by more delaying tactics by several other Democrat Senators. Then near midnight, Sen. Leticia Van de Putte’s hostile comment about women not being recognized on the Senate floor, triggered a response from the pro-aborts. They stood, applauded and yelled at the top of their lungs. Their excruciatingly piercing screams could only be compared to what evil must sound like emanating from the pit of hell.

It didn’t matter that Lt. Gov. Dewhurst ordered Texas State troopers to clear the gallery, not once but twice, which would have prevented the chaos. A communication mix-up, woefully outnumbered troopers and the deceptive behavior of those in burnt orange before midnight caught everyone by surprise. Mob rule by gallery watchers had never happened before in Texas. Initially I saw troopers politely appeal and gently direct the pro-aborts, but their civil disobedience demanded a bolder directive.

Surrounded by angry anarchists, some tweeting violence, I became fearful until I saw Rep. Bill Zedler and Sen. Kelly Hancock hastily ascend into the Senate gallery to escort us to the Senator’s private office where we stayed until Texas troopers cleared the Capitol. It was after 3 a.m. when I finally checked into my hotel. Later we learned that the pro-aborts’ unruly behavior had delayed the final Senate vote until minutes past midnight, thus killing the pro-LIFE bill.

Buoyed by your prayers and encouragement, I joined other pro-LIFE leaders in calling pro-LIFE Texans to the Capitol. Sacrificially taking time away from summer activities, thousands traveled to the Capitol, wearing blue and eager to stand for life.

But colors weren’t our only contrast. As Christians prayerfully sang the hymn “Amazing Grace,” the pro-aborts chanted “Hail Satan!” While Christians gently witnessed, lesbians kissed in the rotunda, and orange-shirted children held up immoral and obscenity-laced signs that hopefully they did not understand.

September Is 'Ex-Gay Awareness Month'… That Is If America Survives the Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell

UPDATE: It appears that Voice of the Voiceless removed the post on DADT. Ironically, Foster has routinely accused gay rights groups of stifling his speech...but now his own organization seems to have done just that.

Since Ex-Gay Pride Month in July was an absolutely phenomenal success, Voice of the Voiceless announced on Friday that September will be Ex-Gay Awareness Month:

FIRST ANNUAL EX-GAY AWARENESS LOBBYING DAY AND DINNER

As a part of the First Annual Ex-Gay Awareness Month in our nation’s schools, Voice of the Voiceless and Equality and Justice for All are pleased to announce a lobbying day and evening dinner on September 30, 2013! More details to come in August.

Event Details

September 29, 2013 (7:00pm – 9:00pm) – Pre-Event Day Get Together and Lobbying Education Training (Location to be disclosed when you register)

September 30 (9:00am – 4:00pm) – Lobbying Congress and Senate on Capitol Hill (Appointments made on your own)

September 30 (6:00pm – 9:00pm) – Ex-Gay Awareness Dinner (Speakers TBA)

Today, the group kicked off Ex-Gay Awareness Month with a post by co-founder DL Foster that said the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell meant that “something Al Qaeda can’t do” — the decimation of the military — “will be accomplished by our own hands.”

The assassination of DADT created an even larger, more critical issue for the military who right now is a general with no clothes on. One is that its given this unchecked, almost covert power, to a group of people who demonstrated numerous times that they want revenge for the perceived and real injustices done to them by their heterosexual neighbors. Sure, its been conveniently called “equality,” but we needn’t look any further than the growing rash of anti-church, anti-ex-gay laws and policies being rushed to the front lines as evidence that revenge is a motive.

Just look at the venomous language used by gay-hatchet group “Truth Wins Out” (ironic I know) and its commentators, and the case is closed.

Secondly, giving “sexual orientation” unofficial power offset the very balancing nature of the UCMJ. The UCMJ was an equalized to all sexual lifestyles that carried a threat to the good discipline and order within the ranks. It kept in check adultery, fraternization, and homosexuality, at least to the degree that we all felt equal under military law.

But now, homosexuality has the “get out of jail” free card while the other proclivities are still in stripes. That’s patently unfair. It’s an unspoken belief that soon because the filed will need to be leveraged, other sexual activities will go the way of homosexuality and be sanctified. Then something Al Qaeda can’t do will be accomplished by our own hands.
