Don Feder: Obama 'More Dangerous' Than Terrorists

World Congress of Families spokesman Don Feder is joining in the Religious Right outrage over the National Prayer Breakfast speech in which President Obama dared to mention that many people have distorted the Christian faith to justify violence and oppression, much like how groups such as ISIS distort Islam today. While Feder wonders in a column published yesterday if Obama will become an “imam” or “Sheik of Chicago” in “the coming Caliphate,” he writes that he does not believe Obama is a Muslim.

Instead, Feder claims that Obama is “slavishly devoted to Dar-al-Islam” because he’s a “devout leftist” who reveres Islam “as the religion of the downtrodden and the dispossessed.”

“So good progressives are able to overlook its flagrant misogyny, rampant homophobia and genocidal rage,” Feder writes. “A shared hatred of the West trumps everything else.”

Obama’s leftism and powers as president, according to Feder, make him even more dangerous than Islamist extremists: “That Barack Hussein Obama commands the US military, controls the apparatus of national security and has the world’s bulliest pulpit, makes him far more dangerous to the survival of Western Civilization than Jihad-this, Islam-that, and Abu-whatever.”

Our president has been called Islam's principal Western apologist. But that's like calling the Chief Rabbi of Israel kind of Jewish, or Lindsay Lohan sort of messed up. In fact, from his 2009 Cairo speech to last Friday's Sermon on the Mosque, it's been nothing less than slavish devotion: the Muslim Brotherhood is "secular," the Ft. Hood massacre was "workplace violence," the Taliban is "an armed insurgency" (but not terrorist), initially, Benghazi was caused by an anti-Mohammed video, "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam," the muezzin's call to prayer is "one of the sweetest sounds on earth," and on and on ad nauseam.

In the coming Caliphate, maybe he'll be the Sheik of Chicago or the Imam O.

At the Prayer Breakfast, after his faux Buddhist greeting to the Dali Lama, the alleged leader of the Free World pledged to "push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilist ends." Which religion?

Lest you think the president was referring to the religion of peace (against whose adherents we occasionally undertake overseas contingency operations), Obama was quick to point out that around the world, every faith has, from time to time, been "hijacked" by violent extremists "for their own murderous ends."



Obama is so slavishly devoted to Dar-al-Islam, that many think he's a Moslem himself. To the contrary, he is a devout leftist.

Two strains converge to shape Obama's attitude toward Islam. There's nostalgia – for his Moslem boyhood in Indonesia (so innocent, so carefree, so harmonious) and his absentee dad – combined with the left's worldview.

The left views Islam as the religion of the downtrodden and dispossessed – the faith of victims of Western colonialism and capitalist exploitation. Besides, it's so charming and quaint. So good progressives are able to overlook its flagrant misogyny, rampant homophobia and genocidal rage. A shared hatred of the West trumps everything else.

The liberation theology preached at Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church is a consequence of the left's Islamophilia, as is Obama's anti-Zionism.

That Barack Hussein Obama commands the US military, controls the apparatus of national security and has the world's bulliest pulpit, makes him far more dangerous to the survival of Western Civilization than Jihad-this, Islam-that, and Abu-whatever.

Pat Robertson: Snow In Boston Disproves Climate Change

An exasperated Pat Robertson challenged President Obama and 99 percent of climate scientists over their belief in climate change today since, after all, the televangelist explained, it is snowing in Boston.

Robertson claimed that the Boston snowstorm helps prove that climate change is a myth created by scientists who have been manipulating data, even though climate change has actually been linked to growing storm intensity.

“The president goes in an interview with Vox, whatever that is, and said our real challenge is not ISIS, it’s not terrorists, it is global warming,” Robertson said. “Go to Boston, Mr. President.”

Roy Moore Will Stop Alabama From Turning Into Sodom And Gomorrah

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is on a warpath to thwart the implementation of a federal court ruling that struck down his state’s ban on same-sex marriage, telling probate judges not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples even as the Supreme Court has allowed marriages in the state to begin.

Moore, a favorite of Religious Right activists for his anti-gay rhetoric and disregard for federal court rulings, posted a piece on his Facebook page today declaring that same-sex marriage and homosexuality are both wrong just because: “Homosexuality is wrong and we all know it. Marriage of the same sex is wrong and we all know it.”

“This is ground zero in the battle for what God has defined as marriage,” the piece continued. “What He has said about homosexuality. How do you want to leave your country? Will your children, grandchildren ask why did you not fight for what is (was) right?”

The post has since been removed, but we’ve captured it here:

Moore also posted a statement from his wife, Kayla, who leads the Foundation for Moral Law, a legal group founded by Moore. Kayla Moore’s statement cites Leviticus to condemn homosexuality as an abomination and slam the federal court’s ruling.

“Founded by Chief Justice Roy Moore, The Foundation for Moral Law's goal is to be the sword of the spirit for Christians all over who don't want to see Alabama or America become the next Sodom and Gomorrah,” she said. “We will continue our battle against evil, and judicial immorality.”

She called on gay people and their allies to turn away from their “sexual lust” and turn to God: “Today the sacred institution of marriage is being destroyed by the LGBT community and liberal politicians who ‘want change’ as did our President; and they make their rulings based on their emotions and not law. Every human being wants to find meaning in their life, some find it in religion, some find it in material things, certain people find it in sexual lust; however, all they need is Jesus Christ. We as Christians do not condemn homosexuals; instead we point them toward eternal life through Christ Jesus.”

“These are the days of Elijah! There has never been a greater time for the kingdom of God to unite. Recall the story of Elijah, particularly as he stood up to the prophets of Baal,” she said, adding that God is “calling on all of the body of Christ to make a stand against the malignant spirit that envelops our court rooms and society.”

In essence, Judge Granade's ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, is not only in direct violation of the Alabama Constitution, but it also violates "God's Natural Law", as well as the right of the people who voted to ban same-sex marriage in 2006 and won by an overwhelming 81%. In Leviticus, Moses instructs the children of Israel on what God told him, "If a man lies with a male as he does a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them" (Lev. 20:13). And in the New Testament Paul warns that same-sex activity is the result of rebellion against God and leads to destruction (Romans 1:26-27). Jesus died for our sins, but He still calls sin what it is. He did not condemn the woman taken in adultery, but He told her, "Go, and sin no more." (John 8:11).

Today the sacred institution of marriage is being destroyed by the LGBT community and liberal politicians who "want change" as did our President; and they make their rulings based on their emotions and not law. Every human being wants to find meaning in their life, some find it in religion, some find it in material things, certain people find it in sexual lust; however, all they need is Jesus Christ. We as Christians do not condemn homosexuals; instead we point them toward eternal life through Christ Jesus. However, we are only a small portion on the kingdom of God; Pastors, Deacons, Youth, and Ministers, These are the days of Elijah! There has never been a greater time for the kingdom of God to unite. Recall the story of Elijah, particularly as he stood up to the prophets of Baal. Elijah's story is in the book of Kings. As you read you see how isolated and alone he felt in the culture in which he lived. Instead of conforming to the ungodly ways of his people God told Elijah to stand up and speak for him and he did.

In such times that we live in we might ask ourselves "is God in control?" Well I assure you, God is very much in control, and these days are special times when God is watching and waiting for his people to fight and stand up and speak for Him. Now we are under grace and not under the law, but the righteousness that comes by faith can be no less than the moral law that comes directly from God. These are not the days of God stepping back and allowing our state and society to submit to the rule of the wicked. Rather, these are the days He is calling on all of the body of Christ to make a stand against the malignant spirit that envelops our court rooms and society. The body of Christ, the church, is the grass roots of the Foundation for Moral Law. The sole purpose of our nonprofit organization is to uphold the Constitution and promote the moral and biblical principles to our government.

Founded by Chief Justice Roy Moore, The Foundation for Moral Law's goal is to be the sword of the spirit for Christians all over who don't want to see Alabama or America become the next Sodom and Gomorrah. The Foundation has always stood alongside God's People. We promote the biblical and moral principles that this country was founded upon. We will continue our battle against evil, and judicial immorality.

Daubenmire: Satan's 'Homosexual Mafia' Wants To 'Crush Your Skull'

Filling in as the guest host of Linda Harvey’s “Mission America” radio show this weekend, Dave Daubenmire once again lashed out at the “homosexual activists” whom he blames for an Ohio school board’s decision not to hire him as a high school football coach, claiming that he was the victim of “a public lynching.”

“My crime was I am bold enough to say — as Linda Harvey is — bold enough to say that homosexuality is sin, homosexuality is a deviant lifestyle, homosexuality is destroying the culture,” Daubenmire said. “I was bold enough to stand up and say that and let me tell you something: Satan’s got himself a church, he’s got a church for sure and they don’t back up and they don’t back down and they don’t give a quarter and they don’t stop until they crush your skull. It’s supposed to be the other way around, isn’t it? Isn’t the seed of the woman supposed to crush the skull of the serpent? Why does this battle seem to be going the other way so much? What’s going on folks?”

He said that the “gates of hell” are now prevailing in America: “The Devil seems to be capturing turf that does not belong to him. Marriage used to be the bailiwick, the property, the ownership of the church, it used to belong to the church and we’ve yielded it to the homosexual mafia, the gay lobby in the interest of being fair…when did one’s sin get the right to fairness over others?”

Later in the program, Daubenmire described a recent presentation he delivered about marriage, in which he insisted that same-sex couples can’t get married because they don’t have the right “plumbing.”

“We were talking about marriage and gay marriage as if there can ever be anything other than a man and a woman?” Daubenmire asked. “I said the plumbing don’t even work. What is wrong with us that we would call a sex act marriage? When did sex become love and love become sex? We know better than this, right?”

Mike Huckabee: Gay Marriage 'Lies' Reminiscent Of Nazi Germany

Over the weekend, Mike Huckabee hosted an event in Little Rock called “America from Ordinary to Extraordinary,” where he warned about the dangers facing the U.S., including gay rights and criticism of conservatives. At one point in his speech, Huckabee appeared to draw a connection between Nazism and legal fights over gay rights in America.

Huckabee said that while groups like ISIS are broadcasting their crimes to the world, “at least the Nazis tried to hide what they were doing at Auschwitz and Birkenau.” He went on to explain that the Nazis consolidated their control and launched the Holocaust by consistently lying to people.

“You have to lie to people, and when lies permeate our culture, it’s a dangerous, dangerous thing,” he said, before asserting that just as Nazi Germany pushed lies on a massive scale, American culture has been inundated with “lies” about the definition of marriage.

“We’re abandoning the basic concept of free speech and liberty. If you are a believer and you believe old-fashioned things like the definition of life and the definition of marriage, it’s possible that the government will put you out of business as they have in numerous occasions like Elane’s Photography. Out of business,” Huckabee said, referring to a photography business that denied service to a gay customer. He then brought up the case of an Oregon bakery which similarly refused service based on customers’ sexual orientation, claiming the bakery’s owners were threatened with jail time, which they were not.

Huckabee also defended anti-gay organizations classified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as hate groups, such as the American Family Association, as simply groups that speak “the truth” about issues like homosexuality.

He said that Christians who “love people enough that you are willing to tell them the truth” are now viewed as hateful.

“In today’s world, what real love means is interpreted as hate and if you tell someone what the truth is, you’ll be accused of hate speech,” Huckabee said. “Craziest thing I’ve ever heard is some of the Christian groups that I know, and I know the people involved in them, are called hate groups. Really? What makes them a hate group? Because they said something someone didn’t agree with. What is it that causes us to say we should celebrate diversity, which means you should celebrate uniformity with what the culturally correct have decided you should believe. This is an insidious threat to our country.”

Pat Robertson: 'So-Called Gay People' Likely Molested, Recruited Into Homosexuality

Pat Robertson fielded a question today from a “700 Club” viewer who asked the televangelist what he should do after finding a “gay magazine” in his son’s room.

Robertson, notorious for his brand of “loving” advice on how people should deal with a possibly gay family member, said that the father should “talk to him about sexuality” and know that his son probably isn’t gay…unless someone sexually abused or “confused” him.

A lot of these so-called gay people have been either attacked or molested by some authority figure or else a magazine or something has confused them. You need to talk to him about what things are and who he is and what he is and let him grow up and find out, but don’t let him be exposed to a bunch of pornographic magazines because a gay magazine is filled with naked pictures of naked men doing sex with each other, that’s what’s in there, so you don’t want him to read that stuff. Whether it’s men and women or men and men or women and women, it doesn’t matter, you don’t want him to be seeing that.

Pat Robertson: Christians New Victims Of Don't Ask Don't Tell

Pat Robertson, who has long been deeply troubled by the presence of gay people in the military, claimed today that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has “turned the tables” and made Christians in the military the real victims of oppression.

“‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ used to refer to gays in the military, now it could apply to Christians in uniform,” he said.

Following a “700 Club” segment by Christian Broadcasting Network reporter Chuck Holton on chaplains who claim that they are facing pressure not to condemn homosexuality, Robertson accused the military of suppressing the rights of chaplains. A military service member, he said, “doesn’t need some communist or some socialist or some progressive giving him pablum and some doctrine of political correctness.”

“If we being to muzzle our chaplains, God help us,” Robertson said.

Ted Nugent: Sarah Palin The 'Perfect Example' Of Founding Fathers' Vision

In an interview last month with Lars Larson, National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent blamed President Obama’s election on people who forgot that “Martin Luther King died so that we would someday judge by content of character instead of color of skin.” It seems that Americans missed out on voting for a true American hero: Sarah Palin.

“She is my hero,” Nugent said of the former half-term Alaska governor. “Sarah Palin is the perfect example of what our Founding Fathers envisioned for an experiment in self-government.”

Nugent was especially impressed by Palin’s decision to resign midway through her first term as governor: “She quit because the left hate machine was so overwhelming her with frivolous litigation that she did the most courageous thing in the world and she handed her governor duties to the lieutenant governor while she was taking on this hate onslaught of the left so that Alaska would be properly served by someone who could pay attention to the responsibilities of the office of government while she was fighting off the leftist mongrels. She’s my hero.”

After plugging Palin’s new TV show, Nugent gushed that she is “an amazing American and she brings forth so much good that the general media would not bring forth, she’s a reminder that the heart and soul of working-hard, playing-hard, being-the-best-that-you-can-be America is alive and well.”

WND Pundit 'Exposes' The Obamacare-ISIS Plot

Right-wing activist Bradlee Dean is pretty sure that United States intelligence services started Al Qaeda and even trained ISIS fighters, a theory that he lays out in WorldNetDaily today.

Demanding to know why President Obama is “aiding and abetting America’s enemies,” Dean claims that Obamacare is really just a sly way for the president to distract Americans from the growth of ISIS and his surreptitious work to assist terrorist groups like ISIS, take away Americans’ guns and advance the New World Order.

Dean approvingly cites Pierre-Henri Bunel, a 9/11 truther, to make his point.

I realize that these Islamists are making hundreds of millions through their takeover of Iraqi oil operations, cleaned out Iraqi banks in territories they have control of and have even been funded and trained by the U.S. government. However, I have to ask why the surrounding governments are not squashing these barbaric devils. Furthermore, why is our own government providing the means to empower them while asking us, those they serve, to relinquish our rights to more government control?

ISIS seems to be taking it to a new level of barbarism, due to the fact that beheading men, women and children seems to have very little effect on the American people. These Islamic devils seem to have forgotten that it is the American people who have allowed their own government to sanction the beheading and dismemberment of over 58 million of its own babies in the womb. For this reason, they must come up with a more barbaric method of getting their enemies to submit to their regime (Proverbs 6:16).

So, in changing their tactics, ISIS decides to set a man on fire and then puts the barbaric crime in front of the faces of the world to see.

Why is the response from the president to push Obamacare on the people in this country?

Remember, the message from ISIS to you is “Submit or else.” In fact, Islam means “submission.” So contrary to the claims of Barack Hussein Obama and the other deceivers in Washington, ISIS is, in fact, Islamic to the core.

Who is ISIS? Who is al-Qaida? Who are America’s enemies? Who is creating all of this chaos? Who does this work for?

Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, who mysteriously died of a heart attack, told the House of Commons that al-Qaida is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.

In addition, former French military intelligence agent Pierre-Henry Bunel wrote in the April/June 2004 edition of World Affairs:

“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called al-Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the U.S., and the lobbyists for the U.S. war on terrorism are only interested in making money.”

Why are world leaders calling for a “New World Order” at the same time?

Why was Barack Hussein Obama calling for a “New World Order” in Europe before becoming America’s president, claiming that there was “no other way”?

Why is he now meeting with designated Muslim terror groups in the White House? Why is he allied with America’s sworn enemies by appointing them to key positions in governmental positions? Why is he aiding and abetting America’s enemies? Why is he trying to disarm the American people through means of terror? Why is he releasing thousands of illegal felons on the streets of America? Why has he transgressed the U.S. Constitution, lied to the American people, wasted taxpayer money and been involved in cronyism in 900 documented incidents?

Alan Keyes: Gay Marriage Will Lead To The 'Dissolution Of The United States'

Alan Keyes, the Religious Right icon who thinks that marriage equality will lead to Nazi-style tyranny and “the murder of the masses,” took to WorldNetDaily today with a lengthy column on the dangers of gay marriage. In fact, the column is so long that readers are redirected to Keyes’ personal website to read the second half of it.

According to Keyes, a Supreme Court decision in favor of marriage equality “could very well be as momentous as the Dred Scott decision in the 19th century, and just as fraught with potentially fatal implications for the future Liberty and Union of the people of the United States.”

After arguing that same-sex marriages are unconstitutional because such relationships will not lead to procreation and therefore contribute nothing to society, Keyes writes that there is no right to marry. In fact, same-sex marriage, according to Keyes, represents a “humanly fabricated right” that undermines “the unalienable right essential for the natural conception and perpetuation of humanity itself.”

All in all, Keyes concludes that a pro-gay-rights ruling from the Supreme Court will be a reason for a new revolution and civil war.

“This would be an attack on the people of the United States more grievous than that which led the first generation of Americans to declare their independence from Great Britain,” he writes. “If even a significant minority of Americans continue in their attachment to the unalienable right of liberty (as opposed to the licentious freedom that has, in some quarters usurped that name) this attack is likely to produce the separation and dissolution of the United States, for like humanity itself the United States is inconceivable apart from respect for God-endowed unalienable right.”

Over the past several years, I’ve written quite a few articles on the subject of the so-called “right” asserted in respect of “gay marriage. So it is only after much thought that I venture to say that the Supreme Court’s decisions could very well be as momentous as the Dred Scott decision in the 19th century, and just as fraught with potentially fatal implications for the future Liberty and Union of the people of the United States. Many Americans feel that this is so. But when it comes to constitutional law, our feelings cannot be the crux of the matter. Rather we must rely, as the young Abraham Lincoln once said, on “Reason, cold, calculating, unimpassioned reason.”



This observation is not only directly relevant to any Constitutional judgment, it is, by the plain language of the Constitution itself, unmistakably conclusive. For the 9th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution plainly states that “The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” This language may or may not apply to certain rights under human law (like, for example, the “right” to own slaves in Virginia at the time the Constitution was adopted) but it certainly applies to any and all “unalienable” rights, since they are an aspect of natural law without which the “human” in “human law” would have no distinctive significance.

The way in which this bears upon the issue of so-called “homosexual marriage” is plainly obvious. Whatever else it may or may not be, homosexuality is not an activity inseparable from the concept of humanity itself. On the other hand, marriage between a man and a woman (especially in the true and natural sense of the union of their identities in the child conceived by their commingled information) is not only necessary for the existence of particular human individuals, it is also and especially necessary for preserving the existence of humanity as such.

In this respect, marriage is not a matter of freedom, but of obligation. It goes beyond the tie between particular men and women to encompass the tie between the existence of humanity as a whole and the activity of each and every human being actually capable of procreation. This intersection of the particular and general good is precisely the sphere that calls for the sovereign to exercise the power of civil government. By nature individuals are inclined instinctively to care for themselves and their loved ones. But to care for the general good of all is one of the defining elements of sovereignty. True justice does so with proper regard for each individual’s God endowed responsibility and capacity for right action, but never acts without regard for the common good that each and all are obliged to respect and serve.

This is the main reason the civil institution of marriage exists in the first place. These days people pretend that serving the good of the whole (.e.g, environmental stewardship) and respecting the good of each individual is an either/or proposition. But as endowed by the Creator, the marriage right is the paradigmatic example of just action that serves the whole while care for each individual as a distinctive and particular whole.

But in respect of the premise of unalienable rights, the Constitution makes it plain that this mutual service to humanity takes precedence over subsequent determinations of right in human law.

Whatever this means for the practice of homosexuality without reference to marriage, it certainly means that no humanly fabricated right can be allowed to deny or disparage the unalienable right essential for the natural conception and perpetuation of humanity itself. Such denigration of antecedent unalienable right would not only be unconstitutional, it would explicitly contravene the aim (to secure unalienable rights) for which all governments are instituted in the first place.

This would be an attack on the people of the United States more grievous than that which led the first generation of Americans to declare their independence from Great Britain. If even a significant minority of Americans continue in their attachment to the unalienable right of liberty (as opposed to the licentious freedom that has, in some quarters usurped that name) this attack is likely to produce the separation and dissolution of the United States, for like humanity itself the United States is inconceivable apart from respect for God-endowed unalienable right.
