Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/9/14

  • Matt Barber wants President Obama impeached for treason and he wants it done now!
  • Austin Ruse is upset that nobody will cover Robert Reilly's new anti-gay book.
  • Rick Santorum has been added to the line-up for NOM's "March for Marriage."
  • People are apparently very eager to have their photo taken with David Barton and Ted Cruz.
  • Lee Duigon warns that "the 'transgender' movement is picking up steam. Its purpose is to cut us off from God."
  • Finally, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire says the only thing that prevented BLM agents from killing the people at the Bundy Ranch was the fact that the protesters had cell phones and weapons.

Fischer Upset Pope Francis Allowed Worship Of The 'Demon God' Allah At The Vatican

On Sunday, Pope Francis hosted an interfaith "prayer gathering" at the Vatican featuring Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as well as Jewish, Muslim and Christian spiritual leaders.

Bryan Fischer, of course, is not happy about it, mainly because Muslims worship a "demon god."

Saying that interfaith prayers are "horribly misguided," Fischer declared that "not every being that occupies the unseen world, the spiritual world, is a good guy, is a good spirit," explaining that in addition to the good spirits of God, Jesus, and angels, there are also countless dark, dangerous, and sinister spirits that are under the control of Satan.

Allah is one of the latter, Fischer proclaimed, saying "Allah, as he is referred to and thought of and addressed and spoken of and invoked by Muslims is not a god, he is a demon":

Beck: 'We Are Now The Radicals, We Are Now The Revolutionaries'

On his television program tonight, Glenn Beck will be interviewing the controversial street artist known as "Sabo," who is perhaps best known for his poster of Sen. Ted Cruz covered in tattoos and his poster depicting Texas state Senator Wendy Davis as an "abortion Barbie."

Beck will be interviewing Sabo because, as he explained on his radio program today, "we are now the revolutionaries" and need learn how to "short-circuit" the system through the culture in the manner that Sabo has been doing.

"We are now the radicals," Beck told his audience. "We are now the revolutionaries and we have to start thinking that way. We have to start looking for ways to short-circuit things because what we're doing is we're relying on the system. Well, the system is now geared against us. We are in the Martin Luther King position and Barack Obama is the one in the J. Edgar Hoover role.  You can't out J. Edgar Hoover J. Edgar Hoover.  You can't Nixon Nixon. You have to think differently":

Todd Starnes 'Cannot Wait For The Day That We Have A President That Loves America'

Todd Starnes appeared on the AFA's "Today's Issues" radio program last week to discuss the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl where he suggested that President Obama has "deserted" the United States of America.

Claiming that Bergdahl is a traitor who had betrayed his country, Starnes declared that "this soldier may not be the only one who has deserted; I think President Obama has deserted his obligations and responsibilities as President of the United States of America."

AFA president Tim Wildmon agreed, asserting that he feels like he is "living in the Twilight Zone" because "it's as if our own president is against our country ... I look at what's going on and I go 'whose side is this guy on?'"

While Wildmon predicted that this story would help the Republicans in the midterm elections because "Democrats are scurrying like rats on a ship that's on fire" to distance themselves from this story, Starnes simply stated that "I cannot wait for the day that we have a president that loves America":

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/6/14

  • The Texas Eagle Forum had quite the line-up for its "Patriotic Banquet at the 2014 GOP Convention" with Ted Cruz, David Barton, and Tom DeLay all speaking.
  • Listening to anti-gay activists continually insist that "it was through a terrible misuse of the Bible that the African slave trade was sanctioned" is getting really tiresome.
  • Matt Walsh is outraged by "transgendered toddlers," saying it's "A tragedy. A tragedy of nonsense. Horrible, abusive, pathetic, sad, bizarre, tragic nonsense."
  • Watching the Religious Right frame efforts to control the amount of money in politics as a repeal of the Bill of Rights is fascinating.
  • Finally, a flag that flew upon one of the ships during D-Day sold at auction yesterday for $350,000 ... to Glenn Beck.

Klingenschmitt: Satan Has Blinded Atheists To The Fact That They're Possessed By Demonic Spirits

On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today, Gordon Klingenschmitt defended the comment made recently by E.W. Jackson that church-state separation groups like the ACLU and the Freedom From Religion Foundation are literally representatives of "demonic power."

As Klingenschmitt explained, atheists are possessed by demonic spirits but do not realize it because those demonic spirits are blinding them to the fact that they are possessed by demonic spirits.

Citing 2 Corinthians, Klingenschmitt says that "an atheist complainer, he looks at Jesus and doesn't see the glory of Christ. He's blind. And who has blinded him? Satan inside of him as blinded his eyes. It's impossible for atheists to discern the demonic spirits":

Gordon Klingenschmitt's Interesting Defense Of Tax Exemption For Clergy & Churches

Under current tax law, members of the clergy are entitled to receive a housing allowance upon which they are not required to pay taxes. This so called "parsonage allowance" allows clergy members to receive thousands of dollars per year from their church to be used to pay for their housing but this money is not classified as part of their salary and is thus exempt from taxation.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has filed suit over this practice, arguing that churches and clergy are receiving special treatment that is not available to other non-profit institutions and Gordon Klingenschmitt, not surprisingly, is vehemently opposed to FFRF's effort to end this exemption, arguing on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today that it is not fair to make members of the clergy "pay extra taxes" by ending this practice.

As Klingenschmitt sees it, no churches should be required to pay taxes because the donations it receives have already been taxed once when the money was first earned by the people who donated it.

"Everyone who goes to church and has a job," he explained, "already paid their taxes back home on their income and then they gave whatever was left over to the church. So should the church then have to pay taxes on top of that?"

By the same token, Klingenschmitt says, a pastor who receives thousands of dollars from the church to pay for housing should also not be required to pay taxes on that money because the pastor has already paid taxes on his or her salary.

"Because [the housing allowance] is still funded by the church, it should not be double taxed," Klingenschmitt argued, "since the pastor already paid his income taxes as an employee of the church ... That doesn't mean he ought to pay extra taxes for the simple fact of living in a church-owned or church-rented property":

Of course, the entire point is that most people pay taxes on their salary and then have to use that salary to pay for their housing, but members of the clergy receive a salary on which they pay taxes and then thousands of dollars in the form of a housing allowance upon which they don't.  But to Klingenschmitt, not giving clergy members this tax-free allowance amounts to double taxation.
