Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 7/10/15

  • Caiden Cowger thinks the appearance of a "surprise blood moon" shows God's displeasure with the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling.
  • Bradlee Dean fumes that the Supreme Court oligarchy is "allowing less than 1.6 percent of the population to dictate 'law' to everyone else."
  • Tony Perkins says that "same-sex 'marriage' isn't about building homes -- it's about destroying them."
  • Mat Staver warns that the gay marriage ruling is just the "tip of the iceberg."
  • Finally, BarbWire's Gina Miller once again offers up her reasonable assessment of current events: "The persecution of Christians in the United States will now begin in earnest, as we have not seen thus far in our nation.  While many associate murder with persecution, we’re not quite there—yet (but, give it time)."

Putting Bryan Fischer's Absurd 'The Confederate Flag Is A Democratic Issue' Theory To The Test

Yesterday afternoon, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley signed a law removing the Confederate flag from the State House grounds, so naturally Bryan Fischer used the news to reiterate his absurd theory that the racist symbolism and history of the flag is really "a Democratic issue."

Fischer, whose knowledge of American history apparently doesn't include anything that has happened since 1965, spent a segment on his radio program yesterday insisting that Republicans in South Carolina should have refused to even vote on the removal of the flag because "this is a Democratic Party icon" and evidence that Democrats "have been horrible racists from day one" and that the party's past is "so black, and so bad, and so dark, and so tinged with racism" that Democrats must now remove it in an effort to cover up the party's sordid history.

Fischer's attempt to hang the issue of the Confederate flag on the modern Democratic Party is so laughable that we decided to conduct a simple test and take a look at all of the members of the South Carolina legislature who voted against the bill to remove the flag from outside the capitol. There were three in the state Senate and 20 in the state House.

See if you notice any pattern:

Staver: 'The President Of The United States Has Put The Cloak Of Sin Over The White House'

To say that the Supreme Court's recent decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide has sent Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver completely over the edge would be something of an understatement, as he has spent just about every radio program since it came down railing against its supposed illegitimacy while warning that God's judgment will soon befall this nation.

That trend continued today, as Staver again used the "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast to declare that he was ashamed for this nation after seeing the White House lit up in rainbow colors following the decision and warning that America cannot escape God's judgment.

"No nation in history can rebel against God and assume that it will continue to exist," Staver said. "It just simply won't happen. You have, as individuals, consequences to your actions and nations have consequences to their corporate actions as well. What just happened with regards to this opinion of marriage by five lawyers at the Supreme Court, an illegitimate decision as it is, and even then the Obama administration participating and celebrating sin is an act of defiance against our Creator and it will bring judgment upon our nation. Make no mistake about it."

After co-host Matt Barber declared that lighting up the White House in rainbow colors is "a harbinger of God's judgment" brought about by the "arrogance and haughtiness in celebration of the sin of Sodom," Staver declared that upon seeing it, he became ashamed to be an American.

"It's unprecedented in American history that the president of the United States would be so in-your-face immoral and impose that immorality and sin on the rest of the country," Staver said. "I wept when I saw that and thought about what a horrible example that is to the rest of the world. I just felt shameful to be an American at that point in time, that this is my country and look what my country has come to. The president of the United States has put the cloak of sin over the White House, the cloak of shame over the White House."

  • Todd Starnes has no patience for Republicans who want Donald Trump to tone it down: "Tone it down? I say he needs to crank up the volume."
  • OneMillionMoms is unsurprisingly opposed to the new PBS program "Growing Up Trans."
  • Janet Porter says that the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling "just abolished the First Amendment."

Swimp: Gay Men 'In Bottomless Pants' Are 'Literally Trying To Collapse Our Western Civilization'

Last week, Glenn Beck became enamored with a group of anti-gay black Religious Right activists who were vowing never to accept the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide. Beck arranged to have one of the leaders of this group, Michigan-based anti-gay activist Stacy Swimp, appear on his radio program today, even though Beck himself is off the air for the month due to health reasons.

That left Beck's co-hosts, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere, to interview Swimp and listen to him ramble on about how the "LGBT gestapo" is out to destroy the religious freedoms of Christians in America by allowing men to walk about "in bottomless pants" while subjecting their adopted children to unnecessary hormone therapy all in an effort to collapse Western Civilization.

"This is not even just about so-called gay marriage," Swimp said. "This is about an immoral revolution. Look at what they're doing, they're trying to superimpose it in our schools. Did you hear about the case in California, and this is not uncommon, where homosexuals who have been allowed to adopt children ... are taking them to get hormone shots because they're saying that this pre-adolescent wants to be of a different gender and so they're trying to stop the natural genetical [sic] process of this minor that they have custody of? This is what's happening, so this is getting to a point now where they're literally trying to collapse our Western Civilization. This is a moral, supernatural, spiritual thing that's manifesting itself in the political realm, in the social realm, in the cultural realm and if people like you and I and those of us who can see it don't do anything about it, I'm telling you, we're going to look up and we're going to have boys going to the girls' bathroom ... We're going to have men walking around in bottomless pants."

While Gray and Burguiere couldn't help but laugh at Swimp's parade of horribles, Swimp continued to warn that soon churches won't even be allowed to preach that homosexuality is a sin.

"Anytime that you have so-called gay rights being backed up by an expansion of government," he said, "what happens is you have a decrease of religious rights or religious freedom or religious conscious rights of Christian Americans. So beware, beware, and resist, resist, resist."

Trent Franks: Constitution Is 'The Greatest Gospel Outreach The World Has Ever Known'

Televangelist and "Holy Laughter" preacher Rodney Howard-Browne is once again holding a week-long revival meeting in Washington, D.C., called "Celebrate America," featuring Religious Right activists and Republican members of Congress.

Rep. Trent Franks spoke last night through an interpreter to a largely Hispanic audience, begging them to elect more Christians to office because the purpose of the Constitution and the United States is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.

"If America is to be saved, she will be saved by those who have been saved," the Arizona Republican said. "I'm crying out to you the best way I know how as someone who is in the seat of power in the United States Congress, please send more people that hold Christ in their hearts to the Congress."

Franks went on to say that the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide "was lost years earlier when we elected presidents that would appoint people who had no respect for the United States Constitution."

"Today, there are four people on the United States Supreme Court that revere the Constitution," he said. "There are four the revile it and there's one that doesn't know his name half of the time."

The Constitution now hangs by a thread, Franks warned, and if it falls "the greatest Gospel outreach the world has ever known will be gone" and that is why the audience must "do everything that you possibly can to make sure that the leaders in Washington are leaders that honor God."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 7/8/15

  • Oklahoma Gov. Marry Fallin is vowing to fight a state Supreme Court decision ordering the removal of a Ten Commandments monument from the statehouse grounds.
  • Mark Shepard declares that "those who mock the very creation of man, by openly parading unnatural, destructive, unbounded sexuality in streets, legislative bodies and courts, have stolen that very symbol and use it to represent defiance against God."
  • Dan Delzell says that "it is ironic, and yes even tragic, that President Obama would choose to light the White House with a rainbow after the recent Supreme Court decision. It was his loud and proud way of celebrating the sin of same-sex marriage. Obviously, the president doesn't seem to believe that the Old Testament stories of Noah's Ark and Sodom and Gomorrah were actual events in history."
  • Bart Barber warns that "the advocates for the sexual revolution are quickly taking us back to first-century Rome."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer once again says that people speaking languages other than English in America is a sign of God's judgment: "God may not need to judge America by confusing our language. We're doing a pretty good job of that all by ourselves. Or perhaps, this is the way a sovereign God is bringing his judgment on a land that has turned its back on him."

Bryan Fischer Once Again Calls For Enacting Russian-Style Anti-Gay 'Propaganda' Laws In America

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer once again called for America to implement Russian-style anti-gay "propaganda" laws and to ban the formation of gay-straight alliance clubs in high schools.

Just as advertising cigarettes to children is illegal, Fischer said, so too should we ban the spread of gay "propaganda."

"We ought to be doing exactly the same thing with homosexuality," he said. "That's what Russia is doing. You can't propagandize youth in Russia because they don't want the youth of Russia to grow up thinking this is a normal alternative to heterosexuality. And homosexuality is not even against the law in Russia, just like smoking is not against the law in America but we do the same thing; we do not allow the propagandizing of America's young to think that there is something glamorous and exciting and healthy about cigarette smoking."

"If we're going to be concerned across the board about human health, then we ought to have exactly the same concern for people that are considering going into the homosexual lifestyle," he continued. "Let's talk them out of it. Let's persuade them against it. Let's refuse to allow our young people to be propagandized in preschool, in kindergarten, in elementary school into thinking this behavior is normal. In teenagers, let's not let them be propagandized, let's not have gay-straight alliance clubs on our high school campuses."
