Klingenschmitt: World Vision Board Member Who Resigned Is 'Full Of The Devil'

Following World Vision's backtracking from its decision to allow legally married gay couples to work for the organization last month, World Vision board member Jacquelline Fuller resigned, saying that she "disagreed with the decision to exclude gay employees who marry."

For "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt, this is cause for celebration because Fuller was "so full of the devil that she doesn't want to care for poor people anymore unless she can homosexualize them at the same time."

"That's a demonic spirit," Klingenschmitt said, "and we're going to call her out on that":

Right Wing Round-Up - 4/22/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/22/14

  • In a shocking development, a poll commissioned by the Family Research Council and America Values found "that 82 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning independents" oppose gay marriage.
  • The Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty has lost its tax-exempt status after the IRS determined that it “has shown a pattern of deliberate and consistent intervention in political campaigns."
  • Todd Starnes has very clever insights.
  • Any event featuring Wiley Drake and James David Manning is bound to be an exercise in insanity.
  • Finally, it is more than a little ironic that J.D. Greear, a pastor speaking at the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics Religious Liberty Commission Leadership Summit, would complain that "[p]reaching against homosexuality in our day is about as popular as preaching against slavery and racism in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1861."

Glenn Beck Is Not One To Doubt The Miracle Of The Jesus Pancake

Last week, the owners of a cafe in California cooked up a pancake that, they believed, looked a lot like Jesus and Glenn Beck spent an entire segment of his radio broadcast today defending the possibility that said pancake really could be a message from God.

Saying that while doesn't really believe in these sorts of messages, he is also "not willing to reject things that people interpret as a good sign of hope" because people often receive "divinely inspired" signs from God that other people mock as ridiculous.

"I don't want to question God," Beck said, because "I really believe we are entering a season of miracles and I'm not going to guess on somebody else's miracle that is giving them peace."

Eventually, Beck had a photo of the Shroud of Turin put up on the screen alongside a picture of the Jesus pancake to make the case that the two images looked similar, based mainly on "the shape of the nose" in each image.

Sadly for Beck, his co-hosts were not buying it.

"What are you talking about?" asked an incredulous Stu Burguiere. "It's not similar at all. You're looking for things you want to find":

Fischer: Jesus Doesn't Want You 'To Give Any Kind Of Help' To Someone Getting A Divorce

On yesterday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who was seeking advice on how he should respond to fellow Christians who had sided with his wife when the two got divorced a few years ago.

Saying that his wife had engaged in adultery and then sought a divorce against his wishes, the caller was mystified by the fact that his "brothers and sisters in Christ" had shown up in court to testify on behalf of his wife during a custody hearing.

Fischer was likewise mystified by this, primarily because Jesus said that no Christian should ever provide "any kind of aid or comfort or help to a person who wants to break up a marriage."

"We shouldn't be anywhere around that," Fischer said. "We shouldn't give help, any kind of help - especially testifying in court - we shouldn't give help to the individual that wants to break up what God has joined together."

Doing so, he warned, puts one in direct conflict "with the teaching of Jesus Christ himself":

Glenn Beck Says That America Is Just As Anti-Semitic As Ukraine

The most fascinating aspect of Glenn Beck's nightly television program is the "behind the scenes" look that it has begun to air in the form of excerpts from the morning meetings that Beck holds with his senior staff.  The practice of filming and airing these clips began a few months ago and the segments have gotten progressively longer, so much so that they have begun to take up large chunks of the program that used to be filled by Beck's opening monologue. 

What is most remarkable about these clips is that they show a room full of intelligent, independent adults who gather day and day to be lectured by Beck, who is part doomsday prophet and part self-help guru, on every issue imaginable as if he alone possess some amazing insights into the true nature of the universe when, in reality, it is usually little more than Beck spewing nonsense.

Take yesterday's meeting, for example, where they were discussing the situation in Eastern Ukraine where Jews were reportedly being told to register with the government or have their possessions confiscated and be deported. The flyers were widely regarded as being a hoax, but Beck echoed a warning issued by a Holocaust survivor that Jews should leave Ukraine anyway ... but then added that there was really no place for them to go because antisemitism was just as bad in America as it is in Ukraine.

"The question is where do you run?," Beck asked his staff rhetorically. "Think the United States is any less anti-Semitic?  I mean, yes it is less anti-Semitic but we're doing it in our universities. We're growing it here":

Right Wing Round-Up - 4/21/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/21/14

  • Glenn Beck regrets giving Mitt Romney his first edition copy of George Washington's farewell address, especially since he never even received a thank-you note.
  • Michael Brown has "some honest questions for professing 'gay Christians.'"
  • The Family Foundation of Virginia "is asking that you join us for 40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance for Marriage from August 27 until October 5, 2014."
  • Bryan Fischer is a lot of things, but self-aware is not one of them.
  • Finally, Jim Garrow boldly tells Glenn Beck and Oprah Winfrey that he will not appear on their programs, even though they are both practically begging him to do so!

Once Again David Barton Falsely Claims The Obama Administration Won't Prosecute Child Pornography

As we have noted many times before, the simple fact that a claim happens to be demonstrably false has never stopped David Barton from repeating that claim endlessly. That tradition remains intact as today, on his "WallBuilders Live" radio program, Barton once again asserted that the Department of Justice under President Obama has entirely refused to prosecute those who traffic in child pornography.

Barton made this same claim back in 2011 and we pointed out then that he was lying, but that didn't stop him from making the false claim once again today, asserting that, until recently, nobody in America supported pedophilia but now it is gaining support because the Obama administration is turning a blind eye to the issue of child pornography by refusing to prosecute anyone for it.

"The Obama administration has refused to prosecute any child pornography," Barton lied, "which is, again, sex between children and adults ... They have refused to prosecute any of it":

We would just like to point out that, in the last week alone, the FBI has issued no less than six different press releases announcing indictments of or sentences for people involved in trafficking of child pornography.

How exactly these sentences are being handed down if, as Barton claims, the Department of Justice "has refused to prosecute any child pornography" is beyond us.

But, once again, the mere fact that Barton is demonstrably wrong about this claim will not, of course, stop him from repeating it time and time again.

Klingenschmitt: ENDA Will Force Women To Share Bathrooms With Men Who 'May Not Be Sitting Down When He Goes Pee'

Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from a New Mexico photography studio that had refused to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony but, for some reason, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt was still praying that the Court would agree to hear the case on the Friday broadcast of his "Pray In Jesus Name" program.

During his discussion of the case, Klingenschmitt complained that non-discrimination laws actually result in discrimination against Christians and that somehow resulted in him railing about ENDA yet again as he warned that the law, if passed, would force women to have to share the bathroom with "cross-dressing men ... who may or may not be sitting down when he goes pee":
