Ex-Gay Activist Went From 'Sleeping With One Thousand Men' To Being Happily Straight

Ex-gay activist David Kyle Foster said last month that people are “abusing children” by telling gay youth not to pursue ex-gay therapy, insisting that he changed his sexual orientation even after “sleeping with 1,000 men.”

Foster made the remarks in an interview on “Vocal Point” with Jerry Newcombe of Truth In Action Ministries, which he spent promoting his new ex-gay movie and discussing how childhood sexual abuse leads to homosexuality.

Newcombe started the program on the “militant homosexual agenda” by asking: “If a Martian were to visit America, he might conclude that half the country was gay and the other half wish it were! This is such an issue where it is pushed on us over and over and over in America.”

Fox News General: Obama Is An Enemy Within, Creating A 'Communistic Society' And Aiding Terrorists

Retired generals Thomas McInerney, who is now a Fox News contributor, and Paul Vallely appeared on “Trunews” last week where they told host Rick Wiles that President Obama is helping terrorist groups and pushing the destruction of America.

Wiles claimed that “Barack Obama is a communist” and “an enemy of the United States who is going to bring about destruction of the republic,” adding that the president is an “enemy of the nation, a domestic enemy in power, in the White House, who is orchestrating the destruction of our nation.” He also floated the possibility of a military coup against the president: “You’ve alluded to a constitutional crisis, but at what point do military commanders say enough is enough?” 

McInerney warned that a “major incident or an attack” will cause a revolution against Obama once people realize he is “executing a very carefully orchestrated plan on how to change America, ‘transform America’ in his words, in a way that brings us to a socialistic, communistic society of redistributing wealth, etc., cutting our growth down, bringing in large amounts of immigrants that really want to live on the U.S. government and our education, etc.” 

“We have a crisis not only in our economy and in our national security, but also in the demographics that is being changed at such a dramatic pace that we have not previously seen in our history,” he said. “To answer your question, when do people come up and say ‘enough is enough,’ that’s a very good question but I think this coming 9/11 is going to demonstrate, is now the time.”

McInerney also agreed with Wiles that the U.S. has “switched sides, we are helping Al Qaeda, we are helping ISIS” in a move akin to the U.S. “switching sides to the Japanese and the Nazis” during World War II.

“We did switch sides, weapons went from Benghazi to ISIS and Syria through Turkey,” McInerney said, citing a completely baseless Benghazi conspiracy theory. “We’re reaching a crisis in this Republic.”

McInerney stressed his obligation to defend the country against “enemies foreign and, I repeat, domestic,” calling Obama a treasonous leader who is “aiding and abetting the enemy.”

Vallely, who once pledged to lead an anti-Obama coup, hoped that either “divine intervention” or a “cataclysmic event” like a terrorist attack will “wake the American people up” to rise up against Obama’s “tyrannical government” and demand his administration resign en masse.

Schlafly: Immigrants Will Destroy America If They Don't Vote Republican

In an interview with WorldNetDaily over the weekend, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly said the immigrant “invasion” threatens the stability and future of America because it may undermine the electoral prospects of the Republican Party.

Warning that immigrants are liberals “who are not accustomed to our ideas of self-government and limited government” and “expect government to take care of them,” Schlafly said they will lead to the demise of the GOP, bringing America down with it: “Well, it might take 50 years, but meanwhile the Republican Party will be dead. Maybe so will the U.S.”

Even at the age of 90, she’s still not done; her latest book “Who Killed the American Family?” will be released by WND Books later this month.

In it, she finds the American family under attack from a range of forces, including feminists, judges, lawmakers, psychologists, universities, the media and illegal immigration.

She sees President Obama and other Democratic leaders as complicit in the importation of people who don’t share the American value of self-reliance.

“The Democrats know perfectly well that the people coming in are people who are not accustomed to our ideas of self-government and limited government, and they expect government to take care of them, and that’s what we’re doing,” Schlafly said in an interview.



The Eagle Forum in February issued a report called “How Mass (Legal) Immigration Dooms a Conservative Republican Party.”

The premise was that the vast majority of immigrants in the U.S. have liberal policy preferences, according to survey data from numerous sources. These liberal preferences cannot be overcome by better GOP messaging or Republican support of amnesty for the current illegal population.

According to the report, the only hope for the Republican Party to remain viable as a national conservative party is to restrict the number of legal immigrants allowed into the country each year.

The report dealt mostly with legal immigration, but since it came out, the southern U.S. border has seen a tremendous surge of illegal crossers, many of them children and teenagers. Schlafly is just as adamant about these illegal immigrants as she is about the others.

“I think they ought to be put on buses and sent back immediately,” she said. “There’s no reason to let them in. They say they have to go before some court. They don’t need to go before some court. It’s an invasion of people we don’t want in this country, and they ought to be sent back.”



“Well, it might take 50 years, but meanwhile the Republican Party will be dead. Maybe so will the U.S.,” she said.

Larry Klayman: US Must Fight 'Holy War' Against Islam

Far-right legal activist Larry Klayman believes that, like it or not, America must “pursue and finish” a “holy war” against Islam, one that must start with the U.S. ending Muslim immigration and deporting Muslim-Americans because “they have no business in our land.”

Writing in WorldNetDaily last week, Klayman warned that President Obama and administration officials are not only launching a “race war” but are also “bent on furthering an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East and around the globe,” while Muslim-Americans “silently cheer events like September 11, or the beheading of American journalists.”

Klayman added that it’s “time not to let any more of Obama’s Islamic brothers into this country” and for the “Islamic traitor” Obama to be removed from office.

The time for political correctness is over. It is time to call it like it is. The nation hangs in the balance, and making excuses for the destructive conduct of President Barack Hussein Obama and his American Muslim constituency no longer cuts it. His acts are not the result of someone who is ill-prepared and disconnected from the office of the president. He and his racist, anti-white, socialist, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian minions – from Attorney General Eric Holder, to Secretary of State John Kerry, to closet Muslim Director of the Central Intelligence Agency John Brennan – know exactly what they are doing. To complement the race war Obama and Holder have stoked at home, Obama and Brennan are bent on furthering an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East and around the globe. These are evil men, bent on taking the United States and its allies down. For Obama’s part, he not only identifies with his Muslim roots, he acts on them. Brennan is simply the white stooge who, among others, helps Obama carry out the plan.

I am tired of hearing pundits make excuses for Obama. And I am tired of hearing Obama make excuses for Islam and his Muslim brothers who either participate in acts against the nation and our people, or who remain silent to the terror Islam has wrought on the world. The hardcore truth is that we are in a religious war, not of our making but for which we must confront and win. And, this is nothing new. For over 1,400 years, Muslims have, with a few exceptions, been trying and succeeding at killing Jews and Christians. But as of today, the situation has worsened. While Muslims have thus far not succeeded in wiping us off the face of the earth, much less exterminating Israel – the land of Jesus and Moses – the bottom line is that most of them hate our guts. This helps explain the stony silence of the overwhelming hordes of Islamic leaders and their flock who even in this country sit back, partake of our riches, but do little to nothing to join our society and practice American values, rather than support in direct or latent ways the death or destruction that has become so acute, as furthered by their ilk.



If American Muslims had tried to play a constructive role with their terrorist brothers, that would be one thing. But by and large they sit back and silently cheer events like September 11, or the beheading of American journalists. Encouraged to stay silent by the likes of Barack Hussein Obama, who at every step of his presidency makes excuses for his Islam – the latest being that the beheading of these journalists does not represent Muslim theology – American Muslims have largely acted, and not acted, in ways that unmask their lack of real connection to the nation our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us.



It is thus time not only to revoke the passports and citizenship of these American Muslim traitors who have joined ISIS and other terrorist groups, but also to stop any further Muslim immigration to our shores, unless there are proven and legitimate family or humanitarian reasons for entry.



These immigrating Muslims have no constitutional rights to be or remain here! Let them be forced to return and remain in the lands they hold dear, where maiming and killing is a way of life and where all “infidels,” according to their Shariah law, are to be dealt with harshly. They have no business in our land!

We the People did not ask for a “holy war,” but it is time we pursue and finish it.



We have to put our foot down and do everything we can to legally remove this Islamic traitor from the presidency. It is also time not to let any more of Obama’s Islamic brothers into this country. To do so would be potentially suicidal in today’s increasingly hostile and bloodthirsty anti-Judeo-Christian Muslim world, which Barack Hussein Obama has furthered in words and deed.

Jim Garlow: Joan Rivers Going To Hell For Her 'Potty Mouth'

Religious Right pastor Jim Garlow writes today in WorldNetDaily that he is sick and tired of hearing people on TV “who are known for their willfully sinful and ‘degeneres’ practices” praise the late comedian Joan Rivers, when in fact they should be worried she is doomed to Hell because of her “degrading” and “mean” sense of humor.

In fact, Garlow knows that Rivers is bound for Hell unless she apologized for her “potty mouth.”

On TV, I have listened to the comments about her life from people who, among other things, have been married five times, are equally foulmouthed and some who are known for their willfully sinful and “degeneres” practices.

During these moments, my reflections are different, as I come from a different “kingdom.” May I respectfully appeal to scriptural truth, as opposed to the idolizing of practices that are dishonoring to God? Going against the extolling crowd, may I have permission to be contrarian?

I sincerely hope Joan Rivers repented in her final hours. All of us must repent for sin in our lives, if we are to enter into God’s glorious heaven. Without that spirit of repentance before God, along with heartfelt contrition, another place awaits us – you remember, that other place that no one ever wants to mention.



Authentically skillful comedians do not have to have a “potty mouth.” We try to teach young children to have more class than that. Comedians should be held to a higher standard.

Every child needs to be taught how to respect and how to respond to others. Debating each other’s ideas is healthy. In contrast, cutting personal attacks are not acceptable. Authentic and respectful “roasting” can be clever and truly humorous. However, degrading others is not “roasting.” It is mean. Joan Rivers – along with several other comedians – never learned the difference. The fact that they got by with it, and were paid millions of dollars to do it, does not justify it.



So the so-called “experts” are on all the TV shows talking about Rivers. One has been married five times. Another is so vile, his humor cannot be aired. Another champions immorality. They lift up Rivers’ “talent.” Yes, she was talented, but I say she abused it. And many were harmed by it.

I will be in the minority. The moral baseline has been moved so low that many Christians will be applauding her “contributions to life.” But that only shows the depth of their lack of the understanding of the holiness of God, before whom every one of us will stand someday. Once we face him, being the snide host of “Fashion Police” on E! – or for that matter, any of the hidden sins in our lives – will not be “funny.” It will be serious.

Tony Perkins: Smithsonian 'Ignores The Destructive Side Effects Of Homosexuality'

The Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins is angry that the Smithsonian is expanding its LGBT history collection, arguing in radio bulletin today that the Smithsonian is embracing “unnatural history” and deciding to “ignore the destructive side effects of homosexuality.”

“Students are already bombarded with the LGBT agenda, do they really need to walk past exhibits treating its extremists as heroes?” Perkins asks, attacking the collection as “propaganda” meant “to rewrite history.”

Is it the Museum of Natural History or 'Unnatural History'? Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. You can't blame people for asking after the Smithsonian's decision to add a special exhibit on the LGBT movement. The collection highlights everything from "Will & Grace" show props to a transgender pride flag. Sports, politics, and cultural memorabilia are all part of the propaganda, which -- like most Smithsonian projects -- is funded by taxpayer dollars. "It's a good example," said the director, "of the kind of work that we want to move forward with." And that's exactly what people should be afraid of. This is just another platform for the Left to rewrite history -- and ignore the destructive side effects of homosexuality. Students are already bombarded with the LGBT agenda, do they really need to walk past exhibits treating its extremists as heroes? The Smithsonian may know art, but it should stop trying to frame the culture debate.

Religious Right Hero Vladimir Putin's Forces Persecute Christians In Ukraine

The same Religious Right activists who accuse President Obama of persecuting Christians by supporting gay rights, have over the last few years hailed Russian leader Vladimir Putin as a hero and global leader of conservative Christians.

Religious Right leaders such as Franklin Graham, Phyllis Schlafly, William MurrayPat BuchananBryan FischerBrian BrownDon Feder and Scott Lively, among others, have lionized Putin as a fearless Christian leader who is bravely cracking down on gay rightsThe World Congress of Families even decided to hold its annual summit in the Kremlin this year (the group officially cancelled the event after Russia began its conflict with Ukraine, but its Russian partners are quietly going ahead with it).

Of course, while claims that Obama is persecuting Christians are completely manufactured by conservatives, there is ample evidence that Putin-sponsored forces in eastern Ukraine are violently persecuting evangelical and Ukrainian Orthodox Christians. The New York Times reports:

Embracing Orthodox Christianity as a force to unite these now divided Slavic lands and also their own fractured movement, the rebels, fortified recently by an influx of weapons and soldiers from Russia, used their period in power here purging Slovyansk of rival Christian denominations.



Among their principal targets were Christians defiant of the Moscow church’s claims of religious primacy and suspected of connections with the West.

“Their logic is simple: You are an American church and America is our enemy so we have to kill you,” said Mr. Dudnik, the evangelical pastor. No one at his center had been killed, he said but added that the rebels had murdered four evangelical Christians from another Slovyansk church.

Grabbed by pro-Russian gunmen in June after a Pentecost service at the Divine Transfiguration Church, all four victims were taken away for interrogation and were later found dead in a burned-out car.

We have previously noted that evangelicals in Russia, including Baptists and Pentecostals, are facing discrimination as a result of Putin’s drive to push minority denominations underground while growing the clout of the Russian Orthodox Church, which considers evangelical Protestants to be heretics.

While inventing never-ending conspiracy theories about Obama’s supposed crackdown on Christianity, Religious Right leaders don’t appear to mind the real attacks on Christians happening in Russia, under the watch of a leader who they see as an ally in the fight to turn back gay rights and reproductive freedom.

Right Wing Round-Up - 9/5/14

  • Layne Amerikaner @ PFAW: Civil Liberties Experts: Limiting Big Money In Elections Doesn’t Infringe on Free Speech Rights. 
  • Randy Thomas: Gay Marriage And Public Policy: Personal Reflection, Apology.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 9/5/14

  • Family Research Council says President Obama shows “warmth toward” America’s “Islamic enemies,” warning that “his seeming disinterest in ISIS’ genocide of Christians and his vacillation amid other world threats” means “radical terrorists can only be expected to increase their attacks within and without the U.S.”

Top Anti-Immigrant Activist Charged With Sexual Abuse

Maryland GOP politician Michael Hethmon, who also serves as senior counsel for the Immigration Reform Law Institute, has been charged with child sexual abuse over claims that he molested an 8-year-old girl, according to WUSA.

The IRLI is the legal arm of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, and Hethmon worked with Kris Kobach, who is now the Secretary of State of Kansas, to push anti-immigrant laws across the country and provide legal advice to anti-immigrant lawmakers.

Hethmon has warned that immigration is a threat to the country’s white majority and will lead to violence, and especially focused on creating policies that would lead to “self-deportation.”

WUSA reports:

The 60-year-old is now accused with molesting an 8-year-old girl Sunday on his farm off Croom Road in Upper Marlboro.

According to court records, the girl's mother is a nurse practitioner helping Hethmon care for his elderly father at the home. Investigators claim Hethmon was with the 8-year-old outside a barn on the property when he offered to brush hay off her. The child alleged Hethmon put his hands inside her pants and touched her sexually. Hethmon then attempted to put the victim's hand inside his pants, court records say.

The child ran to tell her mother, who reported the incident to police.

Hethmon declined to speak with WUSA9 via phone on Thursday.

In addition to running for the house of delegates, Hethmon is the senior counsel at the Immigration Reform Law Institute in Washington, an organization the Southern Poverty Law Center has linked to a hate group targeting immigrants.

Hethmon has helped states, such as Arizona, and counties, such as Prince William in Virginia, write controversial tough legislation that allows local police and governments to crack down on illegal immigrants, hoping to force them to move away.

With the child sex charges here in Prince George's Now Hethmon is facing his own legal problems. He's currently free on bail.
