Beck: People Know We're On The Verge Of WWIII, Which Is Why 'The Walking Dead' Is So Popular

Back in August of 2013, Glenn Beck explained that everything that was going on it the world at the time was simply a proxy war between the United States and Russia and predicted that, within a year, the conflict would break out into an "openly hot war" that would signal the start of World War III.

Needless to say, that did not happen, yet Beck continues to declare that "all of these things I predicted and warned of" are now coming true, only now he is convinced that the war against ISIS is what will bring about WWIII.

Citing the recent beheading of 21 Coptic Christians, as well as the attack carried out in Copenhagen over the weekend, Beck used his television program last night to deliver a "wake-up call" that "we are now in the early stages of World War III" ... and that is why the show "The Walking Dead" is so popular.

"I think that we all know that the world is about to come undone," Beck theorized. "We all know, there is something in us that tells us the world is out of control but I don't want to watch that ... and so why are we watching 'The Walking Dead'? We're watching 'The Walking Dead' because we know the zombies aren't real. And so it allows us to connect with what we're really feeling but allows us to be in a safe zone because we know zombies aren't real. Zombies are ISIS. Zombies is our economic peril. The rest of the show is what we say is coming":

  • Jennifer LeClaire warns that God is deeply grieved by "Fifty Shades of Grey" and that "the spirit of Jezebel is often behind this immoral trend, tapping into the lust of the flesh with its seductive agenda."
  • NOM likens its scheduled "March for Marriage" to the fight for civil rights and 1963's "March on Washington."
  • Stu Burguiere is not going to miss Jon Stewart when he leaves "The Daily Show" because Stewart is an unfunny hack who has been repetitive and boring for years ... says the man who sits beside Glenn Beck every day.
  • Apparently, the organization Morality In Media is now known as the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.
  • Mark Creech says that "if Republicans move away from conservative evangelical Christians and tango with the left on social issues, no Judas kiss is going to make everything alright. They'll find themselves abandoned on the dance floor and with no ride home."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer decided to cover the death of Kayla Mueller on his radio show today by calling her anti-Semitic and, for some reason, raising questions about whether she had a Muslim boyfriend.

Sen. Rand Paul And GOP Congressmen Appear In New Trailer For Anti-Gay Documentary

Last week, we noted that fringe Religious Right activist Janet Porter was readying the release of a new anti-gay documentary she produced called "Light Wins: How To Overcome The Criminalization Of Christianity" that was reported to feature a variety of members of Congress and Republican presidential hopefuls.

At the time, there were only two clips from the movie available and the only political figure shown in either was Mike Huckabee. Today, Porter released another preview of her film, which contains footage of interviews she conducted with several anti-gay activists as well as with Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Tim Huelskamp, Rep. Trent Franks, and Sen. Rand Paul, all attacking the Supreme Court for striking down the Defense of Marriage Act and for threatening to utterly destroy the institution of marriage entirely by legalizing gay marriage:

Fischer: Obama's Support For Gay Marriage Was A Declaration That He Is No Longer A Christian

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer discussed David Axelrod's claim in his new book that President Obama concealed his support for gay marriage when running for office for political reasons, a claim which Obama disputes.

Fischer's main takeaway from the whole episode, of course, is that what President Obama was really doing in eventually announcing his support for gay marriage was declaring that he was not a Christian.

"Think about this for a second," Fischer said. "President Obama said several times, 'The reason I believe that marriage is a union of one man and one woman is because I am a Christian.' So what does it mean, what are the implications when President Obama says, 'I no longer believe that marriage is a union of one man and one woman'? The implication is, 'I'm no longer a Christian. Christianity teaches marriage is a union of one man and one woman, I used to be one of those, I used to be a Christian, I used to believe in a Christian view of marriage. I don't any longer' ... If you press what Obama's saying there, he would be saying 'look, I'm no longer a Christian'":

James Robison Thinks His New Religious Right Website Could Become 'The Number One, Most Visited' Site Of All Time

Earlier this month, televangelist James Robison launched a new website called "The Stream," which seeks to be a one-stop outlet for covering all today's major issues from God's perspective:

This is my vision for The Stream, a national daily where those concerned about our nation’s perilous course can gather for news, wisdom and inspiration, and not feel as if faith must exist only on the margins. We’ll have a God page, but really every page on The Stream is God’s. The Psalm reminds us that “the Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,” and this is why you will find The Stream covering and commenting on everything from breaking news and entertainment to family issues, religion stories and the great outdoors. It’s all God’s, and The Stream will wind through it all.

So far, the website is little more than a bevy of already-published news and commentary pieces simply collected in one place, but Robison has had big hopes for his new venture right from the very start, telling Matthew Hagee on yesterday's "Hagee Hotline" that it is poised to become the most popular website in the history of the internet.

Though the website has been active for just over a week, Robison said that "it's amazing where we are out of the gate and the response has been overwhelming. This could become the number one, most visited news site and website perhaps of all time."

"The Stream will enlighten, inform, excite and bring people together to stand against the forces of evil," he promised:

Klingenschmitt: Requiring Government Officials To Recognize Gay Marriage Is 'The Yoke Of Slavery'

Shortly after a federal judge struck down North Carolina's ban on gay marriage last year, several magistrates resigned from their positions rather than perform same-sex weddings. Now, a state legislator has introduced a bill that would allow government officials to refuse to preside over such weddings or issue marriage licenses to gay couples based on "sincerely held religious objection" while retaining their jobs.

Gordon Klingenschmitt, not surprisingly, wholeheartedly supports this sort of legislation, saying on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program yesterday that requiring conservative Christians who work in government positions to follow the law when it comes to gay marriage is "the yoke of slavery."

As our colleague Peter Montgomery explained in a report just released yesterday, Religious Right activists are increasingly claiming that "religious liberty" ought to entitle them to engage in anti-gay discrimination, and that is exactly what Klingenschmitt is arguing.

As Klingenschmitt sees it, government workers should have the right to able to opt out of having to "participate in somebody else's sin" if they are a Christian, asserting that failure to grant such an exemption is a violation of the Constitution's ban on requiring a religious test to hold public office.

"We do pray against this demonic yoke of slavery," Klingenschmitt said, "which is being forced by some liberal judges upon the good people of North Carolina ... Father I pray that you would enable each individual person in North Carolina, whether they are a private or public servant, that they would retain their right of conscience, they would not be forced and compelled by the government to participate in somebody else's sin if it violates their religious views. God, give us religious freedom, especially for those now being compelled by the government to sin":

  • Mario Díaz of Concerned Women for America warns that "the attacks on people of faith resulting from a Supreme Court overreach [on gay marriage] would unleash an assault that could spell the beginning of the end of freedom and liberty in America."
  • Bryan Fischer says the reason that President Obama "doesn't have a strategy to stop ISIS is that he doesn't really want to."
  • David Rubin knows why President Obama supposedly won't fight radical Islam: "Barack Obama appears to have been so scarred from the unfortunate loss of his Muslim father at a young age that he can't recognize, nor admit, the real and present danger of the intolerant, violent jihadi ideology and its deep roots in the core of Islam. It seems to be almost an infantile mantra: Islam not bad ... Islam not bad ... Islam not bad!"
  • NOM calls upon its activists to "Thank Chief Justice Moore" and, of course, make a donation to NOM.
  • David Barton responds to President Obama's remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast: "The number of lives lost at the hands of secular, non-, and anti-Christian leaders and governments in just the 20th century alone is well over 100 million."
  • A new paper suggests that the universe has existed forever and never had a beginning. Naturally, for Glenn Beck this is conclusive proof that the Big Bang has been disproven.

Fischer: Roy Moore Is A Modern Day Martin Luther King, Jr.

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer hailed Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore as a modern-day Martin Luther King, Jr. for his order to state probate judges not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples after a federal judge struck down the state's gay marriage ban.

Fischer laughably asserted that it is the federal judge, not Moore, "who is standing in the courthouse doorway ... in defiance of both the law and the Constitution," before praising Moore and the probate judges who are refusing to grant marriage licenses to gay couples as the heirs of MLK.

"What Judge Moore and these probate judges are doing is in the finest tradition of Martin Luther King, Jr.," he said. "They are waging the civil rights battle of this decade, using nonviolent protest to do it":
