Mat Staver Says Gay Marriage Is 'The Beginning Of The End Of Western Civilization'

Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver recently spoke at the American Decency Association's summer conference where he once again warned that America is on the verge of being completely destroyed, just as Pompeii was by Mount Vesuvius.

Staver is particularly alarmed by the spread of gay marriage, declaring that no matter how many laws are passed legalizing it or how many judges strike down laws banning it, the definition of marriage cannot ever be changed because it was established by God.

Changing the definition of marriage is like trying to do away with gravity, Staver said. "It doesn't matter how many opinions or how many votes you have for that, you can't change God's natural created order."

"We've never been in this situation before," he warned. "We will not be able to escape the coercive nature of this issue. It is cataclysmic in its change effect. It is, I believe, ultimately the beginning of the end of Western Civilization if we adopt this as a country":

Michele Bachmann Worries Unaccompanied Children Will Be Used For Medical Experiments

Rep. Michelle Bachmann has a new theory about the unaccompanied minors fleeing violence in Central America who have come in large numbers to the southern U.S. border: they are future victims of a liberal plot to use unwilling children for medical experiments.

It all starts with the case of Justina Pelletier, the teenage girl who was placed in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families because of a dispute between Boston Children's Hospital and her parents, who were backed by other doctors from Tufts Medical Center, over her medical diagnosis.

Last month, she was finally returned to her family and now Bachmann has introduced legislation called "Justina's Law" that would prohibit "federal funding for medical experimentation on a ward of the State."

The narrative created by Bachmann and others within the Religious Right about this case asserts that the Boston Children's Hospital had received a federal grant to study somatoform disorder which prompted doctors to diagnose Pelletier with that condition so that the state could take custody of her and then use her as a guinea pig in the hospital's medical experiments.

This entire narrative is based on a bizarre misreading of the hospital's policy for allowing Wards of the state to participate in medical research trials, which is actually designed to protect such wards. The fact that Wards of the state can participate in medical trials under certain conditions and within specific guidelines is being intentionally misrepresented by Bachmann and others on the Right to claim that foster children are being used for wild medical experiments funded by grants from the federal government without oversight or limits.

Appearing on "WallBuilders Live" today to promote her law, Bachmann tied the issue to the debate surrounding the treatment of unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border, claiming that President Obama and the medical community want to bring tens of thousands of children from Central America into the United States so that they can be turned over to state governments and then used for medical experiments.

"Now President Obama is trying to bring all of those foreign nationals, those illegal aliens to the country and he has said that he will put them in the foster care system," Bachmann said. "That's more kids that you can see how - we can't imagine doing this, but if you have a hospital and they are going to get millions of dollars in government grants if they can conduct medical research on somebody, and a Ward of the state can't say 'no,' a little kid can't say 'no' if they're a Ward of the state; so here you could have this institution getting millions of dollars from our government to do medical experimentation and a kid can't even say 'no.' It's sick".

Get Ready For ReaganBook: The 'Facebook For Patriots'

Last weekend, the Ohio Liberty Coalition hosted a "Reload 4 Liberty" event at which Janet Porter spoke about her never-ending push to get her anti-choice "Heartbeat Bill" legislation passed in Ohio. But apparently that is not all that Porter is up to these days, as she also revealed to the audience that she'll soon be unveiling something called ReaganBook, which aims to become "the Facebook for patriots."

Because Facebook is run by the sorts of people who march in gay pride parades and supposedly censors messages from anti-gay activists like Peter LaBarbera, Porter explained that she decided to launch ReaganBook as a conservative alternative.

"We're tearing down walls, get it?" she said. "We're tearing down walls of tyranny, or censorship":

And indeed, ReaganBook is an actual thing ... and though, as of this posting, it currently only has thirty-one members, including Janet Porter, we are sure that once it is officially announced, it'll sweep the nation!

UPDATE: ReaganBook was temporarily shut down after it was bombarded with membership requests from "those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family," reports the Daily Beast:

The site administrators effectively pulled the plug on ReaganBook less than 24 hours after its launch.

“Thank you to all those who participated in the pre-release of ReaganBook.com,” a message credited to “Management” said on the site late Wednesday afternoon. “Your participation is helping us build a more secure site. Thank you! Please be patient while we make the necessary changes to keep the site free from obscenity, pornography, and those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family. We will be opening the doors again soon with additional protections in place. As Reagan taught us, trust, but verify.”

Bryan Fischer Cites Mysterious Red River In China As Proof That Everything The Bible Says Is Literally True

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer seized upon a story about a river in eastern China that mysteriously turned dark red over the weekend, pointing to it as evidence that the Bible can always be trusted since this is exactly what happened in the Book of Exodus.

Saying that this situation is "exactly what you read in the Old Testament account," Fischer proclaimed that "if this could happen, a large river could mysteriously, instantaneously turn blood red in 2014, it could also happen in 1446 B.C."

"Do not abandon your belief in trustworthiness of the Word of God," he concluded.

There is one small difference, of course, since in the story in Exodus the river was turned literally into blood and was not the result of someone illegally dumping dye or chemicals into the river, which is what is suspected of having happened in China.

Glenn Beck Says Obama Wants Impeachment Threats Because It Will Help Pass Immigration Reform

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck argued that nobody in the GOP is seriously calling for President Obama's impeachment, but Democrats and the media keep talking about it because doing so will help Obama pass immigration reform.

Saying that there is not one person within the Republican Party that is seriously considering impeaching Obama (despite the fact that he totally deserves it), nor even seriously making the case, Beck said that the issue keeps being brought up nonetheless, linking it to the immigration debate by warning that progressives are winning the fight over immigration reform by framing it in terms of "justice" rather than "freedom. "

Conservatives are going to lose the P.R battle, he warned, because "the president is going to change the subject and he's going to make it about impeachment."

"So who wants it?" Beck asked, rhetorically. "The president does, because then he'll be able to say 'I demand justice.'"

Impeachment, Beck explained, is just like the birther and race issues in that they were also ginned up by Democrats and the media, not conservatives and Republicans, in order to help Obama.

"The birther thing is over, the black thing is over," he said, "so now he needs to be able to call for justice" by using the threat of impeachment to promote his political agenda:

Mat Staver Warns That God Will Soon Destroy America, Just Like Pompeii And Sodom And Gomorrah

Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver recently took a cruise with his wife during which they visited the ancient city of Pompeii, which was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 C.E. and it made him realize that America is likewise on the verge of total destruction if it does not stop legal abortion and gay marriage.

"I think we're living in the shade of Vesuvius," Staver said on a recent episode of Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, warning that Americans are going about their daily lives, removing God from our society, and engaging in sexual immorality, completely unaware that this nation will soon be completely wiped out if we do not change our ways.

When co-host Matt Barber compared the destruction of Pompeii to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Bible, Staver completely agreed, saying that just as Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for engaging in homosexuality, "in Pompeii, they were doing the same kind of thing ... it was a sexually immoral society."

And the same thing will soon happen to America, Staver warned.

"I think that's where we are today with some of the threats to life and family and religious freedom in America," he said. "We can't just continue to go on and slaughter one child every twenty seconds, fifty five million since 1973, and expect that there's not going to be consequences. We can't go on and redefine marriage and family and not expect any consequences. We can't to on and pretend that God doesn't exist without expecting consequences":
