Fox News Contributor Links Charleston Shooting To Abortion Rights, Downplays Hate Crime Aspect

Fox News hosts have been heavily playing down the racial hate crime aspect of the shooting at an African Methodist Episcopal church in Charleston, South Carolina, last night, instead suggesting that the shooting was just another case of anti-Christian persecution in America, a recurring theme on the network.

Law enforcement has labeled the shooting a hate crime, and the white shooter reportedly told his black victims: “You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go.”

Fox News contributor Alveda King, a conservative activist with the group Priests for Life, appeared on “Fox & Friends” this morning, where she linked the shooting to abortion rights: “You kill babies in the womb, kill people in their beds, shoot people on the streets so now you go into the church when people are praying.”

Rick Scarborough Is Ready To Burn To Death To Fight Gay Marriage

Texas pastor and conservative activist Rick Scarborough appeared this week on the National Emergency Coalition conference call hosted by E.W. Jackson, a Virginia preacher and Republican politician.

Scarborough, who repeatedly predicted that he and other pastors would be arrested and thrown in jail following the passage of the Shepard-Byrd Hate Crimes Act back in 2009, told listeners to get ready to face death as a result of gay marriage: “We are not going to bow, we are not going to bend, and if necessary, we will burn.”

“The preachers need to get out front, the leaders need to get out front, out front of these ordinary citizens and say, ‘Shoot me first,’” Scarborough said, referring to the bakers and florists who are supposedly being persecuted as a result of gay rights laws.

Scarborough went on to say that gay marriage is a Satanic plot: “The end game is the complete destruction of the church of the Lord Jesus, the replacement of it with this liberal theology that’s not a theology, it’s a philosophy, human-made, it goes back to the Garden of Eden when Satan wanted to be God. We now have a race of humans that don’t want to acknowledge that there’s a God.”

“They’re after God,” he said of Supreme Court justices who may move to strike down state bans on same-sex marriage. “This country better be aware, we’ve suffered a lot of injustices, but I’m not sure God is going to tolerate this one very long.”

Pat Robertson: Destroy Greek Sculpture If It Has Demonic Powers

Today on “The 700 Club,” a viewer asked host Pat Robertson whether she should keep, sell or destroy “an alabaster sculpture of the ancient Greek ‘Goddess of the Hunt,’ Diana Artemis,” that she received as a gift from a friend.

Robertson wondered if it was “used in occult activity” and “has demonic power associated with it,” while clarifying that it may be “just a good-looking statue.”

Robertson, who once told a viewer to destroy a Buddha statue in their home, said that “if it is part of an occult ritual, than by all means destroy it; if it just a beautiful ornament, don’t worry about it.”

Rep. Jody Hice: Church-State Separation Encourages Corruption

At today’s Future Conference, Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., sent in a video message where he blasted the “so-called separation of church and state,” which he labeled a “false belief.”

Hice claimed that church-state separation has tricked Christians into ignoring their role in government and, as a result, the government has become more corrupt without the input of “uprighteous, nice people who have moral compasses.”

“There’s excuses like God is sovereign or we’re living in the Last Days and there is nothing we can do to change what’s happening, and listen, those things may be true, but those things never are a reason for us to not engage in what’s happening in our culture,” he added.

Rep. Jody Hice: Secular Government Leads To Gang Violence

Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., told the Future Conference today that the separation of church and state inevitably leads to Big Government. Hice told guests to imagine two towns, one “a secular town" and one “that embraces a Judeo-Christian worldview.” 

The secular town, Hice claimed though he has absolutely no proof, will be so ridden with divorce, teen pregnancy, crime and gang violence that it will require government intervention: “That’s historically accurate.”

On the other hand, the town with a “Judeo-Christian worldview” won’t need a large government presence since it has few social ills.

“I am thoroughly convinced that it is impossible to have limited government in a secular society because of the problems that secularism creates,” he said.

Michael Savage: Pope Francis Like False Prophet 'Directing Mankind To Worship The Antichrist'

Yesterday on “The Savage Nation,” Michael Savage lit into Pope Francis over his encyclical on climate change, calling him “a danger to the world” who wants to impose “global tyranny.”

“The Pope is a Marxist,” Savage said. “He is a wolf in pope’s clothing, he is an eco-wolf in pope’s clothing, he’s a stealth Marxist in religious garb.”

Savage continued that Francis “sounds just like the false prophet in Revelation, an ecumenical spiritual figure directing mankind to worship the Antichrist.”

“I think it is up to the Catholic people to turn their backs on this Pope before it is too late, before they wake up and find out that they are in chains, this man is a Marxist through-and-through,” Savage said, claiming that he was “picked by the New World Order the way Obama was.”

Kevin Swanson: Gay Marriage Will Lead To The Murder Of Christians

Last week, right-wing pastor and radio host Kevin Swanson reacted angrily after prominent pastor Tony Campolo called for “the full acceptance of Christian gay couples into the Church,” a view which Swanson said will pave the way for the persecution, imprisonment and murder of Christians.

Insisting that gay marriage is the brainchild of Nero, the 1st Century Roman emperor, Swanson said that “Nero is never content to just do his homo thing, he’s going to burn Christians. Homosexuality is going to be in the closet or Christians will be in the fire…. Nero is out of the closet and Nero is hell-bent to burn Christians and endorse homosexual marriage.”

“This is a dividing line for the good and the evil,” Swanson continued, claiming that the gay rights movement is part of the “Antichrist” system revealed in the Book of Revelation.

“This is the very essence of the most evil forces that have ever existed in the history of the world as recorded in Revelation 17,” Swanson said. “So please understand that Nero is never content just to do his homo thing, he’s got to torch Christians in his gardens.”

Michael Savage: Use Immigrants To Build The Border Wall, Then Deported Them

Michael Savage is positively ecstatic about Donald Trump’s presidential bid, especially his line that he will “build a great, great wall on our southern border” and “will have Mexico pay for that wall,” an idea that Savage said he is “very honored to tell you that Mr. Donald Trump’s idea to build a wall with Mexico came directly from” his “Savage Manifesto.”

Savage, who has had Trump on his program, said yesterday that he would “use illegal aliens to build the wall” and then have them “repatriated” once the project is finished, all while having notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio oversee the project.

Later in the program, Savage demanded that Mexico pay the U.S. “reparations” and called on Trump to do away with the Constitution’s birthright citizenship provision.

Michael Savage: Gay Rights Advocates Are 'Sick Perverts Running And Ruining America'

Last week on “The Savage Nation,” a caller told radio host Michael Savage that Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are pressuring schools into “using sexuality based sex-ed and opening up their bathrooms to whomever wants to use it.” Savage lashed out at the ACLU as “the most dangerous organization in American history” and “the worst parasites the world has ever seen in this nation” because it seeks to “poison your child’s mind into accepting a perversion that’s beyond comprehension.” 

“Are the straights bullying the gays or are the gays bullying the straights?” Savage continued. “Does anybody tell a gay how to live? No. They wouldn’t dare. Then why do the gays think it’s their right to tell everybody else what to think? Because they can. It was never about equality.”

He added that the “vermin” advocating for gay rights are “sick degenerates” who want to “poison” and “destroy your child’s mind,” adding: “I will not mince words, I don’t care what it costs me anymore, may it be the last day of my broadcast but I’m not going to lie, but I am sick of the sick perverts running and ruining America.”

Alex Jones Cries At Thought Hillary Clinton Will Be President, Threatens To Leave America

Alex Jones today described Hillary Clinton as a Jim Jones-style “cult leader” who is using mind-control techniques to trick and manipulate voters.

The “InfoWars” host was actually so frightened at the prospect of a Clinton presidency that he was brought to tears and threatened to leave the country.

“God, shes going to be president, he said. I can’t even look at it.” 

He later mocked Clinton supporters as “braindead” “fluoride-heads” who are in a trance.
