Bob Vander Plaats: GOP Will 'Never Win Again' If It Ditches Anti-Gay Stance

Year after year, right-wing activists insist that the government will make it a crime to practice Christianity any day now. Yesterday, Iowa talk show host Steve Deace declared that he has finally found proof of this occurrence: the Colorado Civil Rights Division’s decision to clear a baker who refused a request to inscribe two cakes with anti-gay Bible verses.

The civil rights division found that the baker didn’t discriminate against the customer’s religious beliefs since she did not want to bake a cake which used “derogatory language and imagery.” She also “proposed that her bakery make the cake with a blank Bible page and provide [the customer] with the frosting and piping materials needed to write his anti-gay cake message on the dessert himself.”

Deace spoke about this incident with Bob Vander Plaats of The Family Leader, who said that it shows that the U.S. is turning into China and will soon deem certain Bible verses to be “hate speech.”

Vander Plaats also agreed with Deace that Republican leaders are jeopardizing their own electoral prospects by refusing to stand up against gay rights: “They’ll never win again without this base.”

Conservative Author: Gay Community Attacking 'The True Meaning Of Love'

David Fiorazo, who is promoting his book “The Cost of Our Silence,” told conservative activist Linda Harvey on her radio program this weekend that the success of the gay rights movement is the result of a Nazi-style purge of religion in schools.

“There is a parallel between 1930s Germany, Hitler’s Germany, and the 1960s in America when they went into the public schools and the government started removing the Bible and religious teachings and prayer and all of that,” Fiorazo said. “This is what we’re seeing now. It bloomed right into what we’re seeing in culture with Indiana, the hysterical reaction about the religious freedom bill which 19 other states have, and it just shows that there’s a lot of misinformation and confusion out there.” 

Contrary to his claim, Indiana’s recently amended “religious freedom” law was actually unique in its scope

Fiorazo added that the “companies that fund the left” are spreading “propaganda” to ignorant voters, pointing to a sign he saw at an Indiana protest which said that “hate costs the state but love is free.”

“That conditions people because we have to go back and defend the true meaning of love,” he said.

Linda Harvey: Gay Marriage Is A 'Scheme Of Satan'

Last week on her “Mission America” radio show, Linda Harvey said that conservatives should pray daily that the Supreme Court will rule against marriage equality advocates, thus stopping Satan in his tracks.

“This is really a very simple and obvious issue,” Harvey said. “Two men or two women can never be married unless the very idea of marriage itself becomes so distorted as to become meaningless. So pray that those who have common sense and a grasp of morality will be faithful and not be swayed by the schemes of Satan to deceive, divide and destroy.”

However, if the Supreme Court rules for marriage equality, she said, then “lives will be damaged, just as they are being now by the exaltation of sexual sin in our nation and especially in the lives of children.”

Conservatives must pray, Harvey said, “that the eyes of America will open to the ungodliness of homosexuality and sexual sin of all kinds and we would turn from the elements in our culture that are driving this.”

Michael Savage: Passover Gives Jews A 'False Sense Of Security' That Led To The Holocaust

Michael Savage dedicated his Friday show not only to attacking President Obama but also to discussing the meanings of Easter and Passover. In particular, the conservative talk show host is concerned that the story of Passover gives Jews a dangerous “sense of being special, sense of being the chosen people.”

This “false sense of security,” Savage said, makes Jews believe that “God will always look over them.”

“Well how did that work out in Europe in the late ‘30s and ‘40s?” he asked. “Didn’t work out very well. They threw them all in the oven. All of the children, the first-born, the second-born, the third-born, the fourth-born, thrown in the oven.”

Savage went on to say Christians in America must go through a “reformation” that is “along the lines of a political Islam, we must have a politicized Christianity.” After arguing that Christian groups should stop helping immigrants because Obama is using immigration to destroy America, Savage added: “We must have a militant Christianity throwing off the mythology of ‘turning the other cheek’ for Christians to survive.”

Michael Savage: Obama Is Inciting 'The White Man' To Revolt

On the Friday edition of “Savage Nation,” right-wing talk show host Michael Savage said that President Obama is trying to destroy America by bringing “Third World haters” into the country and provoking white people to revolt against the government.

“The white man is a quiet man and a peaceful man,” Savage said, “and right now the white man is very, very quiet, and very, very peaceful, and like many dictators before him, Barack Obama thinks the white man will remain quiet and subdued forever. Hitler made that mistake; Hitler boasted that his supermen, his Hitler Youth, would easily wipe the floor with the GI Joes that were being sent over…. But it was the white man who defeated Superman in World War II. Let me tell you something else, you push the white man only so far, you’re going to have a reaction like you’ve never seen.”

Savage added that Obama, whom he called a “lunatic” who hates America, is “flooding America with illegal aliens” and pushing for the Iranian nuclear negotiations to irritate and incite white people into a revolution.

Ryan T. Anderson: Gay Marriage Advocates Like Opponents Of Interracial Marriage

Heritage Foundation fellow Ryan T. Anderson, a vocal opponent of marriage equality, spoke to Sandy Rios of the American Family Association today about the controversy over “religious freedom” measures in states like Indiana and Arkansas. During the interview, Anderson took issue with gay rights supporters who assert that businesses that cite moral reasons to deny services to same-sex couples aren’t acting all that differently from businesses that denied services to interracial couples by claiming that such relationships were immoral and unnatural.

While anti-miscegenation laws were implemented throughout the United States for centuries until the Supreme Court struck them down in 1967, and it wasn’t until fairly recently that a majority of Americans began to accept that interracial relationships are moral (many, and disproportionately white evangelicals, still do not believe so), Anderson suggested that interracial marriage opponents never really held sway.

“What does race have to do with marriage?” he asked. “Absolutely nothing. And no great thinker at any point in human history ever said race had anything to do with marriage.”

Well, they may not be the greatest thinkers of human history, but plenty of leaders of the Religious Right movement believed that the Bible required them to oppose interracial marriage. Bob Jones said that any “Bible-believing Christian” would oppose interracial marriage, Jerry Falwell preached against it, and Jesse Helms — who has been honored by Anderson’s own group — “got his political start by bashing interracial marriage.”

Anderson then went one step further, insisting that gay rights advocates are the ones acting like the opponents of interracial marriage.

“For the past generation, there have been a bunch of lies told in the public schools and in the media, lots of propaganda, but propaganda can’t win in the long run. In the long-run, the truth wins out,” Anderson said. “In the same way when there were some racists who tried to say that you can’t have interracial marriage, that was propaganda, it was a lie, and it failed. In the same way, trying to eliminate that marriage is about uniting the two halves of humanity, not black and white, because that’s not the two halves of humanity, the two halves of humanity, male and female, husband and wife, mom and dad, you can’t erase that, and in the long run the truth will win out.”

Rick Santorum: 'Rise Up' Before Liberals Destroy Freedom

On the weekend edition of the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch,” Rick Santorum told Tony Perkins that the fights in Indiana and Arkansas over right-to-discriminate laws are part of a larger “assault” on religious freedom.

“The corporate community now has bought in with the popular culture and bought in with the left,” Santorum said. “This is not the gay community, this is the left of America trying to impose their will on the church and on the family and really to, in my opinion, devastating consequences.”

The former Pennsylvania senator and likely presidential candidate said Americans must “begin to push back and rise up” against left-wing officials who are bent on “imposing their will on people of faith.”

Pat Robertson: 'The Gays Want To Control Everything'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson went on one of his patented rants about anal sex, arguing that he will never change his mind about gay marriage until someone proves that anal sex can lead to pregnancy. Robertson told a viewer who wondered how gay people can identify as Christians that “the gays wants to control everything.”

“This is part of the left-wing agenda,” he said, “to do away with Christian values and to substitute for Christian values the progressive concepts of morality.”

“You tell me if anybody, if you show me one couple that conceived a child through anal — through anal intercourse — just show me one in all the world, and I will say, ‘I agree with you and you are right.’ Show me one. There are 8 billion people, 7 billion, show me one time when a child was conceived by that kind of sexual activity,” Robertson said. “It is unnatural, I’m sorry.”

BarbWire Columnist: Obama Establishing A 'North American Islamic Republic'

This weekend, Sher Zieve took to the far-right outlet BarbWire to warn that President Obama is seeking “the establishment of am [sic] Islamic country in what was once the light and engine to the world.”

After insisting that “Imam” Obama and his Democratic allies are trying to deliberately destroy the U.S. economy and aid terrorist groups, Zieve wrote that Obama is on the brink of launching a “North American Islamic Republic.”

The ObamaGov—which was Obama’s “shadow government”–long ago left its own dark shadows and has emerged as the replacement for the American—aka “USA”–Republic. Illegals are let into the country and the Southern Border patrol Agents are told by the Obama syndicate to stand down and let them all through—even the Muslim terrorists. Illegals are being given more rights and services by Obama than US citizens but, the citizens are still expected to pay for the illegal aliens! Obama has decimated the US economy with his over regulation, increased taxation (think ObamaCare) and punishment tactics used against some of the most successful companies. Note The downfall in the US economy did begin under President Bush but, ONLY after the Marxist-Democrats took control of both houses of Congress.

Obama has written one executive order after another replacing existing US Law. His new “ObamaLaws” aren’t really legal but, with the Dems and Repubs going along with them—or at best not trying to stop them—they become de facto laws by default. Dictator-in-Chief Obama’s latest tactic is not to even write the laws don but, the simply speak them into existence as might a Pharaoh…or an Imam. This is what he and his lackey team have done with the treasonous anti-Israel/anti-USA Iran deal. In making this lunatic and suicidal-for-the-US “deal” with Iran, what Obama has effectively done is say to Iran “I now submit my country to your commands and to Islam.” North American Islamic Republic anyone? This is and has been Obama’s intent all along. He plans—as Van Jones once told a group of high school students—to be President of the World. He is on his way



He has heavily armed and trained US government department members in military tactics. To fight against whom? C’mon you shouldn’t even have to think about this one. Christians are being subjected to a worldwide genocide and Obama does nothing. Instead, he goes golfing. In the USA, more and more Christians are being arrested for their beliefs and being disallowed their God-given (and US Constitutional) right to free speech. There are too many to list here but, Google “Christians arrested for free speech” and you’ll find over 21,000,000 entries

And Obama’s submitting to the will of Iran—and delivering what may very well prove to be the Coup de gras to the USA— as well as bringing in hundreds of thousands of Muslims into the USA (see the ongoing figures by going to the Center for Immigration Studies site) he is now beginning the establishment of am Islamic country in what was once the light and engine to the world. It is no more
 

Right-Wing Pundit: America Under 'Sodomy Law'

Conservative talk show host Jesse Lee Peterson writes in WorldNetDaily today that just as “militant Islam demands Shariah law, homosexual pressure groups demand ‘sodomy law.’”

In a column titled “What’s Wrong With Discrimination?,” Peterson claims that “gays never wanted equality,” warning that LGBT people are instead acting “like fascists” and using the schools and the media to “brainwash” children.

Welcome to the “new” America.

LGBT groups have been effective in linking their immoral cause to the noble civil rights movement. In reality, gays never wanted equality. They wanted society to accept their sinful lifestyle, or else. LGBT groups – to be blunt – act like fascists. Just like militant Islam demands Shariah law, homosexual pressure groups demand “sodomy law.”

So what’s so bad about discrimination anyway? Discrimination has always been a hallmark of freedom. The ability to discriminate is given to us by God so that we can make right choices. People discriminate all the time. We discriminate when we date, marry, pick our friends and in countless other ways, just like homosexuals do. And LGBT groups and liberals discriminate against people of faith all day long!



Christian families today are largely not modeling authentic Christianity. The proof of that is in the children. They have shallow roots that are easily pulled up by a culture that mocks traditional values.

Christian children are led into the government schools, like sheep to the slaughter. The schools use a well-developed brainwashing system: 1) Challenge the traditional beliefs, 2) Replace with new immoral beliefs, 3) Demonstrate a consensus about the new belief – “Here’s what educated, cool people think,” 4) Repetition: Keep pounding the message home, day after day, year after year, until it sticks deep.

The public-school system, the liberal news media and Hollywood also reinforce the lie that the older generation is “intolerant.” After all, they’re the descendants of slaveholders and those who denied women the vote. Oh yeah, and they “hate” gays.
