Glenn Beck Is Taking His Family To See Europe This Summer ... Before It Is All Destroyed

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck announced that he and his co-host Pat Gray will be taking their families on vacation to Europe this summer so that their kids can see England, France, Germany and Greece before they are all destroyed when the world goes up in flames in the coming years.

"Pat and I truly believe that we are in the 1930s," Beck explained. "I don't know where, but we're in the 1930s — maybe its '39, maybe it's '35, I don't know, but history is repeating itself."

Beck went on to say that if people did not travel to Europe before World War II broke out, they were most likely unable to travel there again until the 1950s, by which point many great landmarks had been destroyed by the war and everything was in the process of being rebuilt.

"Because of what is happening, I believe London, France, Germany, Greece; I believe these things could be destroyed in what is coming," he warned, saying that he wants his family to see places like Notre Dame Cathedral before Islamic radicals blow it up and France is no longer a free nation:

Bobby Jindal's Oddly Political Non-Political Prayer Rally

On Friday, the night before Gov. Bobby Jindal's "The Response" prayer rally, Rachel Maddow took a look at the "questionable characters" who were helping him organize and promote the event, prompting Jindal to send a statement to Maddow insisting that his rally would be "a prayer event, not a political rally."

Participants in the rally, of course, did not particularly see it that way. In addition to a segment dedicated to praying for an end to legal abortion in America, several speakers noted how getting right-wing Christians elected to public office was key to bringing reformation and revival to America.

Pastor Jim Garlow, who spoke right before Jindal shared his personal testimony and call for revival, spent most of his time railing against IRS regulations that prohibit pastors from endorsing political candidates from their tax-exempt pulpits. Garlow closed out his remarks by suggesting that America may be in the midst of another great religious revival, judging by the number of members of Congress "who really know Christ as Savior."

"We have more freshman members of the House of Representatives who understand biblical truth than we have had for decades," Garlow proclaimed excitedly, noting that the same thing is happening in state legislative chambers all over the nation.

"We are a generation that has a vision of reformation," he said. "We can see it. We can hear the sounds of it and in our lifetimes, we are going to experience it. Let's join together in prayer for the great reformation. Jesus as king of our land!"

Later in the event, Pastor Jacob Aranza of Our Savior's Church in Lafayette, Louisiana, prayed explicitly for conservative Christians to run for and win political office. Aranza even brought three members of his own church who had all been elected to public office out onto the stage as examples, including Louisiana state Sen. Jonathan Perry, who audibly heard the voice of God tell him to run for office "while giving the largest tithe check he'd ever given" to Aranza's church.

"Father, today we know that you are raising up men and women of God across this nation," Aranza prayed. "And Father now, in the name of Jesus, we pray for the elected officials. We pray for every elected city councilman, we pray for mayors. We pray for senators. We pray for state representatives. We pray for the marshals, the sheriffs,  the school board officials. Lord, we ask you in the name of Jesus, send revival to every elected official we have, oh God. We know that when revival is when you get so sick of being misrepresented that you just show up yourself. Show up in every elected official, Lord, all throughout our state, may the glory of God come ... Maybe it be known because now righteous leaders are in authority and when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice!"

Bobby Jindal's Prayer Rally Advocates Putting Christians In Control Of Government And All Aspects Of Society

When Rick Perry organized his "The Response" prayer rally back in 2011, it brought a lot of unwanted attention to the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement and its agenda, in particular the Seven Mountains Mandate, which asserts that conservative Christians should take control of the seven main areas of culture and society: (1) Business; (2) Government; (3) Media; (4) Arts and Entertainment; (5) Education; (6) Family; and (7) Religion.

Several NAR leaders were involved in organizing Perry's prayer rally, but started downplaying their agenda as they began to encounter growing scrutiny and criticism.

The organizers of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s "The Response" rally on Saturday — which was modeled on Perry’s event and featured many of the same Christian-nation extremists — didn’t seem to get the memo.

Gene Mills, president of Louisiana Family Forum (an official state affiliate of the Family Research Council) spent his entire ten-minute speech at Jindal's prayer rally this weekend openly preaching Seven Mountains Dominionism from the stage.

Christians have been tasked to take control of "the sphere of influence around civil government," Mills said, because all areas of culture "belong to God." Jindal's prayer rally, Mill's declared, was a key component of their effort "to reclaim territory that rightfully belongs to God" because "these seven spheres of influence are under enemy occupation right now."

After revealing that last month, he and other prayer rally organizers knelt in prayer with Jindal "asking God to break unholy alliances" over these areas of society, Mills led the gathering in a similar prayer.

"Father, we cry out for the seven mountains of influence today," Mills said. "We pray that you will give us government, arts and entertainment, education, the church, and the family. That our ambassadors would occupy the high places. That you would bring us into a place of understanding that they need to be occupied by the body of Christ because it's rightfully His":

Bobby Jindal: 'We Need A Spiritual Revival To Fix What Ails Our Country'

After four hours of continual prayer, worship, and singing at today's "The Response" prayer rally, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal took the stage to share his personal testimony with the audience.

After recounting his journey to faith in Jesus, Jindal closed out his remarks by declaring that no amount of laws or elections of godly politicians can save America because only wholesale spiritual revival can restore this nation.

"We can't just elect a candidate to fix what ails our country," he said. "He can't just pass a law and fix what ails our country. We need a spiritual revival to fix what ails our country ... We are a united people. We are God's children. We are precious because we are made in His image. God has created us with a God-shaped void in our hearts and we frustrate Him by filling it with things and material goods and substances. Now it is time for us on bended knee to turn back to God in humble prayer. To repent and ask for His blessing because He is a faithful God. He desires our prayers. I believe in the power of prayer and I pray that we will see a spark lighted here, we will see fifty responses in every state in these United States and we will see a spiritual revival ignite across these United States of America":

'It's Truly Obscene': Glenn Beck Is Outraged Over Obama's YouTube Interviews

Following this State of the Union Address this year, President Obama sat down for interviews with three YouTube personalities and Glenn Beck is predictably disgusted, saying that it is offensive for Obama to do something like this at a time when the world is on the verge of utter chaos.

"For us, it's about the saving of the United States of America and the Western way of life," he fumed on his radio show this morning, saying that this is the equivalent of Winston Churchill showing up at "burlesque shows" in the 1930s and taking questions "while I squeeze her boobies."

"The world is about to cave in," Beck railed. "It's obscene. It is truly obscene. I don't know anybody that can bring the dignity back to that office":

Staver: If People Accept A SCOTUS Ruling In Favor Of Gay Marriage 'Then America Is Gone'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver warned that if the American people accept a Supreme Court ruling recognizing same-sex marriage, it will be the end of this nation as we know it.

After Staver and co-host Matt Barber absurdly argued that Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan are legally required to recuse themselves from the upcoming marriage equality case, Barber wondered what will happen if the court "unconstitutionally imposes counterfeit same-sex marriage on all of those states that live in marriage reality," to which Staver replied that it will spell the end of America.

"The question is whether the church, whether the community, whether our society will sit back and tolerate it," he said. "If they do, then America is gone":

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/22/15

  • Predictably, Jonathan Cahn thinks that President Obama's State of the Union speech is just another sign that God's judgment upon America is just around the corner.
  • Michael Ware explains that the government must give Christianity preferential treatment because "it is absurd to demand that all ideas or beliefs are equal, it leads to the absurd. Only truth from Scripture is valid and can save us from such absurdity."
  • The AFA's Buddy Smith is hopeful that cities across America will follow the lead of Starkville, Mississippi, and begin repealing their anti-discrimination laws protecting gays: "We're still a nation of people [that has] a core that shares a Christian worldview, a core of people who share this core of beliefs that a Christian worldview is what's best for our nation, and sin is still sin and it's okay to oppose it."
  • Erik Rush says that President Obama "has committed serial treason and is being shielded from the consequences of his actions by corrupt and compromised elected officials."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer encourages churches to change their bylaws, as his church is doing, to declare that they will never accept gay marriage: "We believe that any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one's sex, or disagreement with one's biological sex, is sinful and offensive to God."
