Fischer: Janay Rice 'Getting Knocked Out In a Casino Elevator' Shows The Dangers Of Unbiblical Cohabitation ​

On his "Focal Point" radio program today, Bryan Fischer offered his insights into the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal by saying that Rice's then-fiancée, now-wife Janay Palmer Rice was essentially responsible for her own abuse, which was the result of engaging in unbiblical cohabitation.

As Fischer explained, the Bible strictly prohibits premarital cohabitation, so Ray Rice and Janay Palmer were guilty of engaging in illegitimate sexual immorality and living in sin. This biblical position is reinforced by social science research, he said, that shows that such relationships are more dangerous for women than marriage or living alone.

Fischer said that since Palmer had apparently "not been educated, did not understand biblical standards, she put herself in a place where, if her eyes were open and she was thinking clearly and she had been educated as she should have been in our school system, by her parents, at church, she would have known that the most dangerous place for me to be as a woman is living with a guy I'm not married to."

"If you want to have reasons not to do it," Fischer concluded, "getting knocked out in a casino elevator, that's the only reason that you need ... When biblical standards of morality are ignored, people get hurt":

Mike Huckabee Says Conservatives Can't Accept 'Ungodly' Court Rulings On Gay Marriage, Abortion Rights

Yesterday, Vision America's Rick Scarborough hosted a conference call with Mike Huckabee and Tony Perkins that, as far as we can determine, was designed to promote the "Give Me Liberty" events that Scarborough has been organizing throughout the nation in an effort to encourage pastors to mobilize their congregations ahead of the midterm elections.

During the call, Huckabee said that all of America's problems are "ultimately spiritual" and can only be solved by a revival among the citizens who will "vote the Bible."

He blamed abortion rights laws on the failure of conservative Christians to get involved in politics, leaving him to wonder, "how do we face God with that?" On top of that, Huckabee criticized conservatives for accepting judicial rulings which strike down gay marriage bans, saying there should be a "massive outcry" against the decisions.

"We have people who say 'well, the courts have ruled on abortion, we just have to live with it,' or 'the courts have ruled on same-sex marriage, we just have to live with it,'" Huckabee said. "And I would suggest, no we don't! We shouldn't just accept things that are ungodly and that will cause us to have to stand before God with bloody hands."

The solution, he said, is for pastors to encourage their congregations to "vote the Bible" because doing so will solve every problem, including economic ones "because everything about the economy that's wrong would be fixed if people had a biblical understanding of the economy":

Rick Joyner Says Some Christians Can Cure Ebola Simply Through Their Presence

On yesterday's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner recounted the eight hours he spent in Heaven recently, as well as the regular face-to-face encounters he has been having with Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah, and the Prophet Elijah.

During his recent visit, Joyner learned that there is no Ebola virus in Heaven and that Christians are capable of taking authority over the disease here on earth. In fact, there are certain people who are given "total authority over Ebola," allowing them to cure people infected with the disease simply by being in their presence.

"Somebody with Ebola, they come into the room, the Ebola is gone," Joyner said. "That person is healed. It cannot live, cannot exist in their presence."

All Christians will one day have this same power, Joyner said, revealing that he even had a vision of children clearing entire regions of radiation simply through prayer:

Cardinal Francis George Says American Catholics Are Being Forced To Live Under Pro-Gay Sharia Law

In his most recent column for Catholic World News, Cardinal Francis George, Head of the Archdiocese of Chicago, wrote that Catholics in America are being forced to choose between their faith and the "State religion" which imposes "its own form of morality on everyone."

This new religion, he said, compels people to support things like abortion and gay marriage and, as a result, Catholics who refuse worship this "false god" have now essentially become second class citizens just like "Christians and Jews [who] are fined for their religion in countries governed by Sharia law":

In recent years, society has brought social and legislative approval to all types of sexual relationships that used to be considered “sinful.” Since the biblical vision of what it means to be human tells us that not every friendship or love can be expressed in sexual relations, the church’s teaching on these issues is now evidence of intolerance for what the civil law upholds and even imposes. What was once a request to live and let live has now become a demand for approval. The “ruling class,” those who shape public opinion in politics, in education, in communications, in entertainment, is using the civil law to impose its own form of morality on everyone. We are told that, even in marriage itself, there is no difference between men and women, although nature and our very bodies clearly evidence that men and women are not interchangeable at will in forming a family. Nevertheless, those who do not conform to the official religion, we are warned, place their citizenship in danger.

When the recent case about religious objection to one provision of the Health Care Act was decided against the State religion, the Huffington Post (June 30, 2014) raised “concerns about the compatibility between being a Catholic and being a good citizen.” This is not the voice of the nativists who first fought against Catholic immigration in the 1830s. Nor is it the voice of those who burned convents and churches in Boston and Philadelphia a decade later. Neither is it the voice of the Know-Nothing Party of the 1840s and 1850s, nor of the Ku Klux Klan, which burned crosses before Catholic churches in the Midwest after the civil war. It is a voice more sophisticated than that of the American Protective Association, whose members promised never to vote for a Catholic for public office. This is, rather, the selfrighteous voice of some members of the American establishment today who regard themselves as “progressive” and “enlightened.”

The inevitable result is a crisis of belief for many Catholics. Throughout history, when Catholics and other believers in revealed religion have been forced to choose between being taught by God or instructed by politicians, professors, editors of major newspapers and entertainers, many have opted to go along with the powers that be. This reduces a great tension in their lives, although it also brings with it the worship of a false god. It takes no moral courage to conform to government and social pressure. It takes a deep faith to “swim against the tide,” as Pope Francis recently encouraged young people to do at last summer’s World Youth Day.

Swimming against the tide means limiting one’s access to positions of prestige and power in society. It means that those who choose to live by the Catholic faith will not be welcomed as political candidates to national office, will not sit on editorial boards of major newspapers, will not be at home on most university faculties, will not have successful careers as actors and entertainers. Nor will their children, who will also be suspect. Since all public institutions, no matter who owns or operates them, will be agents of the government and conform their activities to the demands of the official religion, the practice of medicine and law will become more difficult for faithful Catholics. It already means in some States that those who run businesses must conform their activities to the official religion or be fined, as Christians and Jews are fined for their religion in countries governed by Sharia law.

'Why Won't They Use The Oval Office?' Glenn Beck Creates A New Conspiracy Theory

Glenn Beck is upset that when President Obama delivered his remarks laying out his plans for confronting ISIS last night, he did not do so from the Oval Office, suggesting that this is all part of Obama's effort to fundamentally transform the nation by erasing America's image of what the presidency represents.

"There's a problem with the Oval Office and this president," Beck said. "There's something wrong there."

Beck is mystified as to why Obama refused to deliver his remarks while seated behind the Resolute Desk and concluded that the only logical explanation is that it is all part of an intentional effort to carry out "a reset of the president of the United States."

"It is part of the fundamental transformation," he said. "This guy's in for eight years, not speaking [from the Oval Office]. He has erased eight years of what that office means. You know, you build up a relationship with the image and he's changing that image. He's changing the image of the United States, he's changing the image of the president of the United States, he's changing the image of what a president looks like - I'm not talking about color, I'm talking about what he looks like, what the optics are. They're so fascinated with optics. Why won't they use the Oval Office? Something's not right":

President Glenn Beck Fixes The V.A. In An Hour

There is something genuinely fascinating about watching Glenn Beck play make-believe as he explains the simple ways in which he would solve the world's problems were he the President of the United States.

He did it again on his television program last night where he began by claiming that President Obama does not respect or love the military or veterans and then ended up acting out just how President Beck would have solved the problems with the Veteran's Administration in an hour by simply firing a bunch of people.

Beck literally stood in the middle of his staff and acted out a scenario in which he called his subordinates to the carpet in the Oval Office, demanding accountability for failings at the V.A. and then summarily fired them.

"I want your ass in my office Thursday at noon," make-believe President Beck told pretend Secretary of the V.A. Stu Burguiere. "I want answers. This stops now!"

Fake President Beck then demanded to know the names of any veterans who may have died while awaiting treatment - and while the Inspector General's report could find no conclusive evidence that that actually happened, Fake President Beck lowered the hammer nonetheless.

"You get your ass out!" Fake President Beck heroically declared. "You're fired. You're done."

"You do that one day for an hour," Beck said, "you fix the V.A.":

Staver: Obama's America Is Worse Than Nazi Germany

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Mat Staver and Matt Barber declared that this current period in time is the worst persecution that Christians have ever faced throughout American history because they are being forced to participate in both abortion and gay marriage.

Bizarrely, Staver claimed that, under Obamacare, Christians are not only being required to fund abortion but are literally being "forced to participate in genocide," which is something that not even the Nazi government forced the German citizens to do.

"Even in Nazi Germany," Staver said, "the government participated in genocide but the individuals, the citizens weren't forced to participate in it ... The people were not forced to push people into the gas chamber or pull the trigger, but now you're being forced to pull the trigger, you're being forced to participate in a genocide, that's different than anything before."

Barber agreed, saying "this is the most oppressive time in terms of religious liberty in the United States," not only because of abortion but also because Christians are also supposedly being persecuted for opposing gay marriage.

"Everyone is going to have to make a decision to either obey the laws of God or to obey the laws of man," Barber said, "and this is unprecedented."

Staver warned that Christians are being compelled to "participate in a Romans 1 platform" by affirming those whom God has given up to a reprobate mind.

"Romans 1 says that when you reject God as the Creator," he said, "God gives you up to a reprobate mind and one of the consequences of that is the people turn towards the same sex for sexual activity and pleasure":
