Ted Cruz And Ben Carson Appear In Film Promoting A Radically Anti-Gay Pastor And Slavery Defender

Pastor Douglas Wilson is a radically right-wing pastor from Idaho who defends slavery, calls for gays to be exiled and adulterers to be put to death. In 2012, he was invited to speak at Indiana University, which led to protests and confrontation and now, a right-wing documentary about the controversy called "The Free Speech Apocalypse."

Directed by Darren Doane, perhaps best known for directing Kirk Cameron's "Saving Christmas," which is literally one of the worst films ever made, the new movie presents Wilson's experience of going up against the left-wing "tolerance buzzsaw" and, amazingly, features appearances by Ted Cruz and Ben Carson:

The Free Speech Apocalypse exposes the strategies of the anti-God, anti-traditional, hyper-liberal elite and offers perspective on the cultural decay that has accelerated across the country over the three years since Wilson's visit to Indiana University.

Worst yet, The Free Speech Apocalypse demonstrates clearly the erosion of free speech and religious liberty in America. The right to hold your own opinions if they differ from leftist agendas is vanishing at an alarming rate, and it's time for ordinary Americans to wake up and speak out.

This documentary features (among others) Sweet Cakes owners Aaron and Melissa Klein, as well as presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson outlining the concerns they have that unelected judges are ruling against the common citizen's Constitutional right to free speech.

A trailer posted on the film's website prominently features both Cruz and Carson:

Why are GOP presidential candidates appearing in a film promoting someone who holds these sorts of view?

Wilson runs an extreme right religious empire in Moscow, Idaho, that includes a church, Canon Press, and New Saint Andrews College. Popular in neo-Confederate circles as well, he co-wrote a partly plagiarized booklet, Southern Slavery, As It Was, defending Old South slavery; his co-author was Steve Wilkins, a founding member of the neo-secessionist and racist League of the South.

Southern Slavery, As It Was is a repulsive apologia for the enslavement of black Americans. Among other things, the booklet contends that, “Slavery as it existed in the South … was a relationship based upon mutual affection and confidence. … There has never been a multiracial society which has existed with such mutual intimacy and harmony in the history of the world.”

When a University of Idaho professor revealed in 2004 that Wilson’s booklet contained 22 passages plagiarized from a discredited 1974 academic treatise, Wilson scoffed, deriding the “local Banshees” who criticized him over what he portrayed as a mere citation problem. Canon Press then issued a “corrected” version of the booklet — correct in its citations, but unchanged in its portrayal of happy and well-fed slaves whose relationship with their masters was one of mutual affection.

Wilson’s views on other issues are just as extreme. Woman “was created to be dependent and responsive to a man,” he has written. If a woman is raped, the rapist should pay the father a bride price and then, if the father approves, marry his victim. Homosexuals, Wilson says, are “sodomites” and “people with foul sexual habits.” Wilson recently told Christianity Today that he’s in favor of the “exile [of] some homosexuals, depending on the circumstances and the age of the victim.” He added, “There are circumstances where I’d be in favor of execution for adultery.” Cursing one’s parents is likewise “deserving of punishment by death.” Though he admits the scripture does not forbid interracial marriage, Wilson warns that, “wise parents” will carefully weigh any union involving “extremely diverse cultural backgrounds.”

Earlier this year, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee and various Republican members of Congress appeared in another right-wing anti-gay documentary alongside a Religious Right activist who openly calls for gays and all those how refuse to submit to Christianity to be put to death.

Are GOP presidential hopefuls utterly incapable of doing any research or vetting before agreeing to appear in these sorts of films?

Vision America: The Supreme Court 'Has Empowered God-Haters To Come After True Believers'

Vision America recently posted a new promotional video celebrating the organization's work mobilizing pastors for the purpose of getting their congregations more involved in politics, which featured footage of Rick Scarborough literally throwing a copy of the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision to the ground and stepping on it while vowing never to disobey the Bible.

The video was presumably produced to be shown during the organization's recent "Heroes of Faith" gala as it was clearly aimed at encouraging donors to continue to fund Vision America's efforts by highlighting Scarborough's various speaking engagements, including one where he was shown grandstanding on the gay marriage decision.

"You cannot redefine that which God has already defined," Scarborough proclaimed of the Supreme Court decision at the start of the video. "However, they did place our nation at odd with God's revealed moral law. I choose to obey God rather than men."

The video then showed footage of Scarborough preaching in a church, holding up a copy of the decision in one hand and a Bible in the other while declaring that "five lawyers just said God was wrong when he defined marriage. There comes a time when men have to choose who they're going to obey and what's going to be the authority in their life."

"Well, I've made my choice," Scarborough said, tossing the court decision to the ground and then stepping on it. "I'm not going to obey that."

Later in the video, the narrator warned that "five unelected lawyers ... have empowered God-haters to come after true believers."

David Lane: Frito-Lay Has 'Become An Apostle For Anarchy' By Selling Rainbow Doritos

A few weeks ago, we noted that Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee had launched a boycott against Frito-Lay over the release of Rainbow Doritos, which benefited the anti-bullying It Gets Better Project, despite his previous stance that such boycotts were "economic terrorism."

Supporting Huckabee in this effort was extremist Christian nationalist David Lane of the American Renewal Project, who recently penned a column explaining the need for the boycott on the grounds that Frito-Lay had partnered with an organization that was founded by "anti-Christian bully Dan Savage." 

By doing so, Lane said, Frito-Lay has proclaimed "solidarity with sexual anarchy" and is fueling America's "rebellion against God" by spreading "Carcinogenic Secularism":

This Madison Avenue maneuvering by Frito-Lay to capitalize on and exalt homosexual acceptance in America fuels a rebellion against God's created order for life. Sexual sin, including the sin of homosexuality, seeks gratification in the denial of God's order. Sinful acts have rebellion against God for their root, but the fruit from that tree will never satisfy the soul. God equates rebellion with witchcraft, "For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry" (1 Samuel 15:23).

Because virtue is a key component of freedom, Frito-Lay positions itself at the forefront of undermining liberty in America. The snack maker has become an apostle for anarchy. As one Bible scholar wrote, "Widespread, systemic violations of law brings on anarchy, both as its natural consequence and as its fitting punishment, and with anarchy comes an oppressive multiplicity of rulers and factions."

Dan Savage has a spiritual problem. And, like me, he needs Jesus Christ.

Take three minutes to watch Mr. Savage spew his rage at high schoolers in 2012. Then, take three minutes to pray for him.

Mr. Savage is the distinct outcome of a decadent, godless society ruined (and now ruled) by secularists. Like a rotten apple, Savage sours his realm with vice. Carcinogenic Secularism has reached every vestige and segment of society: government, the bureaucracy, the courts, public education, universities, media, and Hollywood. The Supreme Court's June edit legalizing homosexual marriage, Obergefell v. Hodges, was not "harmless triviality but rather that perversion of truth which makes good evil and evil good (Isaiah 5:20)."

America's only hope is a spiritual resurrection.

  • Yesterday, Glenn Beck said that it was "beneath me to respond" to Donald Trump mocking him on Twitter so, of course, he spent ten minutes responding to it on his radio program today.
  • Phyllis Schlafly received the "William F. Buckley Jr. Award for Media Excellence" at the 2015 Media Research Center Gala last night.
  • Bethany Blankley names the 46 senators who "should be tried for treason."
  • Jonathan Cahn continues to promote his failed Shemitah theory while also laughably hedging his bets: "In a good amount of the last seven Shemitahs, the market collapse continues past the Shemitah's end date, the Hebrew Elul 29, and into the subsequent autumn. In some others, it doesn't." 
  • Finally, Franklin Graham is upset about the removal of a Ten Commandments monument from outside the Oklahoma capitol: "We have been appalled at news reports of ISIS and the Islamic State tearing down all symbols of Christianity in the Middle East; but think about it—we’re doing it to ourselves here in the U.S. Atheists, activists, and anti-God groups like the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and the Military Freedom of Religion Foundation are on a quest to erase or tear down anything associated with the Name of Jesus Christ."

Theodore Shoebat: Homosexuality Leads To Cannibalism, Kill Those Who Won’t Submit To Christianity

Theodore Shoebat posted a video yesterday calling for the institution of a "Christian collectivist society" in America in which collective punishment is imposed and where those who refuse to submit to Christianity are put to death.

As Shoebat explained, the problem with America is that it is too individualistic, only punishing criminals for the crimes they have committed instead of imposing collective punishments in an effort to root out the beliefs or behaviors that led to the crime in the first place. 

For instance, he said, the correct response to the crimes of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer would have been to punish him for his transgressions, but then to also outlaw homosexuality because "it leads to serial killers, it leads to cannibalism, it leads to murder" and is a danger to the collective Christian society.

Non-Christians would be allowed to live in this society, Shoebat magnanimously stated, provided that they "respect and honor the Christian faith." Those who refuse to do so and seek to promote any sort of "diabolical belief system or an explicitly anti-Christian sentiment" would be put to death.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 10/8/15

  • Rupert Murdoch claims that he meant "no offence" by suggesting that President Obama was not "a real black president."
  • Rand Paul has scored the crucial Alex Jones endorsement.
  • FRC prays that the media will supposedly stop lying about the meeting that Kim Davis had with Pope Francis: "Pray that God will sort out the lies, expose the liars and prevent the distortion from distorting the thinking of the America people. The people must understand that religious liberty must be sacrosanct in our nation if liberty is to survive!"
  • Apparently, criticism of Jonathan Cahn is "the true sign of a prophet who speaks truth" and not the result of him being constantly wrong.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer channels David Barton in making the claim that Jesus opposed the minimum wage: "Minimum wage laws price some low-skilled employees out of the job market altogether, raise the cost of goods and services for everybody, including the poor, and reduce the overall number of jobs. Who gets hurt? The little guy looking to place his foot on the bottom rung of the ladder of financial self-sufficiency. Maybe that is why there are no minimum wage laws in the parables of Jesus."
