Scott Lively continues to praise Russia's anti-gay crackdown: "The Russian anti-propaganda law, passed June 11, 2013, was the first truly effective international counter-measure since the 'gay' agenda went global around the turn of the millennium."
Todd Akin says that he may be running for office again in 2016.
FRC prays against "sexual sin":"May God raise up pastors, intercessors and whole churches whose 'hands have learned to war and their fingers to fight' with prayer. May they wisely stand to correct morally out-of-control government! May our churches not compromise, but correct our nation and avoid the wrath of God!"
Tony Perkins is outraged over Chelsea Manning's transition.
In December, God told Jennifer LeClaire that "our labor in the Spirit over the next 18 months will determine the course of this nation."
Finally, Cindy Jacobs claims to have prophesied Warren Sapp's arrest: "On the Sunday before the Super Bowl, when I was preaching at a church near the stadium, I prophesied a major sting operation was going to take place and we would be surprised who was arrested. Not only did this happen, but the surprise arrest was none other than Warren Sapp, a prominent sports announcer."
Bryan Fischer spent a segment of his radio program today reading from a recent McKay Coppins piece on BuzzFeed about the fact that likely GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who opposes same-sex marriage rights, has surrounded himself with potential advisers and campaign staffers who openly support marriage equality.
That, of course, is not sitting well with Fischer, who declared that contrary to claims that these GOP activists are trying to pull the Republican Party into the 21st century, what they are really doing is pushing the party back into the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.
"If they're dragging the Republican Party into any century," Fischer said, "it would be the 20th century B.C., that's roughly the time of Sodom and Gomorrah ... They're not pulling them forward, they're talking the Republican Party backward into the darkness of the past":
"It was really a satanic performance that was put on," he said. "I don't know if you know it or not, the deviousness of that whole things, folks. Now they had those little dancing sharks out there, now Katy Perry is appealing to the younger generation ... The deviousness of the NFL and whoever controls the NFL to put Katy Perry on there with that clearly demonic halftime show, wow, we live in unbelievable times":
For some reason, organizer's of this year's CPAC conference decided to bestow a First Amendment award upon "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson, apparently for no other reason than because he came under intense criticism for a series of offensive comments that he made about gays and African Americans and for which he refused to apologize.
Going well beyond his allotted time, Robertson treated the audience at CPAC to a rambling sermon about America's desperate need for God, which he illustrated in a variety of ways including, at one point, by railing about STDs.
"One hundred and ten million Americans now have a sexually transmitted illness," Robertson sighed. "There is a penalty to be paid for what the beatniks, who morphed into the hippies [did]. You say what do you call the hundred and ten million people who have sexually transmitted illnesses? It's the revenge of the hippies! Sex drugs and rock and roll have come back to haunt us."
The solution, of course, is one man and one woman marriage, Robertson said, as he thundered that the reason he is telling people this is "because I'm trying to help you, for crying out loud, America!"
Nothing better exemplifies the state of today's Republican Party than the fact that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus's speech at CPAC today was immediately followed by a speech from reality TV star Donald Trump, who shared his deeply thought-out plans for saving America when he is elected president.
In addition to "taking back jobs from China" and "making America rich again," Trump revealed his very serious solution for dealing with ISIS: "Hit them so hard and so fast that they wouldn't know what happened."
"Nobody, if I decide to run and win," said Trump, "nobody would be tougher [on ISIS] than Donald Trump. Nobody."
Trump said he would find some amazing general in the military and put them in charge with instructions that "you gotta hit 'em hard, you gotta hit 'em firm and you can't play games. You gotta go hard and fast and firm":
The Media Research Center's Brent Bozell spoke at CPAC this morning, where he let loose with a speech that was little more than an endless stream of right-wing misrepresentations, falsehoods, fabrications, and outright paranoia about how left-wing tyranny and fascism are destroying America and persecuting people like Rush Limbaugh and Phil Robertson.
For nearly 20 minutes, Bozell ran through a litany of right-wing outrages and supposed scandals as he declared that "something terrible is happening to our country [as] the radical left now controls most levers of political and cultural power and is using both in a relentless campaign to destroy the last vestiges of freedom in America."
"Tyranny is knocking at our door," he warned, before declaring that the left "will do anything, using any means at their disposal, legal or otherwise" to strip conservatives of their freedom of speech and saying that the government isn't "all that different from the East German Stasi."
"Cultural fascism has arrived in America," Bozell said. "Let us understand this soberly and unequivocally":
Nothing says rebel outsider quite like speaking at the annual gathering of conservative D.C. insiders that is CPAC, but that is exactly what conservative street artist Sabo did today when he spoke at one of the afternoon break-out sessions and stated that conservatives are today's rebels.
Sabo bragged that he kicked Wendy Davis' "bigwig Hollywood donors right square in the nuts" with his infamous "Abortion Barbie" posters and then bravely called Gwyneth Paltrow "such a tool" because of her response to his "Obama Drone" pieces.
For good measure, he then closed out his remarks by declaring that "Shepard Fairey and Banksy are in the south of France circle-jerking each other with the money they make selling anti-capitalism art."
"They are now the establishment artists," he said. "We are the rebellion. I ask that you join us. I ask that you support us. My name is Sabo":
Almost from the very beginning of the debate over net neutrality, Glenn Beck has vehemently opposed it, mostly because he has no idea what he is talking about, even warning that America "deserves to be destroyed" if the FCC implements regulations designed to ensure open access.
Today, the FCC approved those regulations and Beck is predictably livid, fuming on his radio program today that the people who supported net neutrality are nothing but "morons" and "useful idiots."
"You morons! You useful idiots! That's all you are. You're a useful idiot. Read Joe Stalin. You moron!" Beck bellowed. "You know why it's happening? It's happening because our elite institutions, our education, our higher learning ... bullcrap, not even our higher learning, our entire educational system has failed us and they are churning out morons!"
Last week, Gordon Klingenschmitt declared that the owners of a Colorado bakery who refused to provide a wedding cake to a gay couple were really "blessing" the gay couple by letting them know that homosexuality is a sin. On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today, the Colorado Republican state representative heaped similar praise upon a Washington florist who likewise refused to provide flowers to a gay wedding for supposedly also "blessing" the gay couple against whom she discriminated by trying to save them from Hell.
Calling the florist a prophetic "hero," Klingenschmitt said that while she is being persecuted for standing for the truth here on earth, she will receive a reward for her courage in Heaven for her effort to save this gay couple from damnation.
"There will be a day when, after they've lived their life of pleasure and sin and after they have manifested all kinds of demonic spirits ... that they will be held accountable before God," Klingenschmitt warned. "And some day when they're standing before God, God will ask them, 'Didn't you know this was wrong?' And they'll have to admit that, yes, this gentle Christian woman told us it was wrong":
