Jake MacAulay is "no longer a slave to my sinful disposition. Instead of admiring Jay Z and Beyoncé as the musically, and artistically talented superstars they are, I lament the message that they both promote in their music."
Matt Baber declares that support for gay marriage comes from "the father of lies — taking something that God has created, perverting it and falsifying it in order to push sin and immorality."

Finally, Sen. Mike Lee, Tony Perkins, and Ken Cuccinelli will be among the featured speakers "on the inaugural Media Research Center Caribbean cruise."
Wellington Boone is the sort of anti-gay pastor who laments that he can no longer call gay people "faggots" and suggests putting all of the "sodomites" on an island to see how long such a society can last, so naturally he was given a speaking slot today at the Family Research Council's "Watchmen on the Wall" conference, where he declared that acceptance of gay rights is a sign of God's judgment on this nation.
"How could a U.S. senator or a congressman or a Supreme Court justice make a decision that goes against the created order of God?" Boone asked. Citing a biblical passage in which God promised that five holy men would be able to defeat 10,000 enemies, Boone fumed that American society is being overrun by a small minority of gay activists, which is a sign of God's judgment.
Boone was especially outraged by the idea that the fight for gay rights can be compared in any way to the fight for civil rights.
"They're saying that what blacks have gone through," he thundered, "is the same as what gays have gone through? I say you're out of your mind! Blacks are a culture. If I decide I don't want to be black, I can't change that. But if you decide you don't want to be gay, you can repent of your sins and be changed in a divine instant":
The Family Research Council's vice president for church ministries, Kenyn Cureton, opened yesterday's "Watchmen on the Wall" conference with a warning to pastors that if the Supreme Court strikes down gay marriage bans, then this nation will fall to "sexual tyranny."
"We're living in the midst of a rapidly escalating conflict in America today," Cureton said. "It's a war between light and darkness. It's a war between good and evil. It's a war between the God-given right to life and a culture of death. It's a war between biblical sexuality and the radical homosexual agenda. It's a war between our religious freedom and their desire to drive God out of government, Christ out of culture, and faith out of public life."
"If the Supreme Court rules gay marriage as the law of the land in all 50 states," he continued, "LGBT behavior will be elevated to a civil right and it will result in sexual tyranny that will trump our religious liberty. You mark it down":
Dave Daubenmire credits his prayer campaign for
the dismissal of the latest case against
creationist Kent Hovind.
The Kansas House voted to expand Kris Kobach's power to prosecute voter fraud cases.
Alex McFarland is alarmed by polls showing that Americans would rather have a gay president than an
evangelical one: "So what the American people are essentially saying is 'we want a president who doesn't believe in
moral boundaries. We would rather have a president that was ethically amoral rather than dependent on the God of our founding
Glenn Beck dedicated his entire radio program today debating the issue of marijuana legalization.

Finally, Mat Staver says that "President Obama must hate
America because his hostility towards Israel will bring a curse on our country ... President Obama is playing with fire and he is
dragging every American citizen with him into the pit of Hell."
Back in 2000, a gay couple who had been been together for decades and registered as domestic partners in New York City moved to Pennsylvania, where gay marriage was illegal and their relationship was not legally recognized. Concerned about protecting their legal rights when it came to issues of inheritance and estate planning, the two men followed the advice of their lawyer and became legally related through adoption.
Last year, Pennsylvania's law banning gay marriage was struck down and so this couple dissolved their adoption decree and are now planning on getting legally married .... and Bryan Fischer is predictably freaking out, saying that the state of Pennsylvania has now legalized incest.
"We talk about pedophilia is coming, bestiality is going to be down the road, and we've talked about incest and I think incest is going to be one of the dominos that is soon to fall," Fischer said on his radio program today. "In fact, it already has in Pennsylvania."
Outraged that Pennsylvania would even allow the two men to enter into such a relationship in the first place, Fischer declared that it created a situation where "someone who is legally a father sleeping, enjoying carnal relations with somebody who legally is his son. What is that? That's incest."
"Now you have the normalization, through the homosexual agenda" of incest, Fischer said. "You're going to have incest that's been normalized and legalized [and] a father and a son will be allowed to enter into a homosexual marriage. Again, as we said, now incest is being normalized. There is just no place to stop":
As Brian noted earlier, Sen. Ted Cruz spoke today at a "Watchmen on the Wall" event hosted by the far-right Family Research Council, where he shared the stage with a variety of other extreme anti-gay activists.
Naturally, when Cruz took the stage this morning, after being introduced by his father Rafael Cruz, who is also an anti-gay Religious Right activist in his own right, the Texas senator promised the gathering of pastors that he will "always, always, always" stand for the right of Christian business owners to discriminate against gays in the name of religious liberty.
Lamenting opposition to "religious liberty" bills in Indiana and Arkansas that would have allowed businesses to deny services to gay customers, Cruz declared that "the modern Democratic Party has become so radical, so extreme, that they have determined that their devotion to mandatory gay marriage in all 50 states trumps any allegiance to religious liberty under the First Amendment."
Even worse, Cruz said, was the fact that some of the leading GOP presidential hopefuls fell silent during the controversy as well ... but not Ted Cruz!
"I can tell you this," he said, "I will always, always, always stand and fight for religious liberty of every American!"
Tonight, Glenn Beck is set to air a special report on the militarization of the police called "Excessive Force" that aims to expose "the root" of the rise in the use of SWAT teams and military equipment by local police forces.
This program is apparently not sitting well with some of Beck's fans, who are now lashing out at him for being "anti-police," which forced Beck to spend his entire opening monologue on his program last night repeatedly assuring his audience that he loves and respects the police and is constantly approaching officers to tell them how much he appreciates them.
In fact, Beck said, he is the "best friend" that local police have because he is the only one willing to warn them that the militarization of their force is part of a nefarious progressive conspiracy to undermine their effectiveness by sowing fear among the general population that the police are out of control so that the federal government can then seize control of local police forces all over the nation.
Beck insisted last night that individual police officers and local police forces are not to blame for their own use or misuse of military-style equipment because they are all being set up by President Obama.
"You’re armed to the teeth so you look provocative, and yet they’re holding you back. Why do you think they’re doing that? Why?," Beck asked. "They are causing the American people to lose trust in you. Nothing you’re doing is making the American people lose trust in you. This is orchestrated, and we must know what’s going on and what the end of the road is."
"The president just said, 'I’m taking some of this military equipment away.' No, he’s not," Beck continued. "He is creating the impression he says you’re out of control because remember, the police act stupidly, so he’s creating the impression that you’re out of control, that you have too much stuff, when, in reality, he’s not taking any of that stuff away. His people are holding you back while they are calling for the Justice Department to take over local policing. Don’t you see the game that is being played, and the cops are being set up? By God, man, I’m your best friend because no one else will talk about this":
Timothy Buchanan says "there is no such thing as a Christian-Democrat. There is no way to defend the godless policies of the Left under cover of Christian compassion, deceitful ideals of social justice, inclusion, or other kinds of double-speak."
Larry Tomczak calls upon conservative Christians to sign his "pledge to obey God, not government, regarding the sanctity of life and marriage."
Finally, FRC prays against Dan Savage's new sitcom on ABC: "Pray that thinking Americans will reject the filth that ABC-Disney is spewing upon our nation and using to harm our children. May the MRC petition succeed and this nasty program be cancelled!"
