Boykin: 'Torture Is What We've Done By Having The IRS Go After Conservative Groups'

The Family Research Council's Jerry Boykin and phony former terrorist Kamal Saleem were interviewed on Glenn Beck's television program last night by fill-in host Stu Burguiere about the new novel they wrote together entitled "The Coalition."

During the course of the interview, the topic of the recently released report documenting the CIA's use of torture came up and all three men dismissed the findings entirely, with Burguiere mocking the notion that sleep deprivation or forced nudity could be considered torture, while Saleem laughably asserted that he had been trained as a terrorist from the age of seven on how to decapitate people, so the techniques employed by the CIA were modest in comparison.

Not to be outdone, Boykin declared that "this report came from a bunch of sanctimonious hypocrites" and said that the real "torture" was the supposed persecution by the IRS of conservative groups.

"I'll tell you what's torture," Boykin said, "torture is what we've done to the veterans at the VA hospitals. Torture is what we've done by having the IRS go after conservative groups":

Barber And Staver Think Abortion Causes Breast Cancer Because 'The Wages Of Sin Is Death'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber were discussing what they contend is a link between abortion and breast cancer. While this claim is a favorite of the anti-choice movement, it is disputed by the likes of the American Cancer Society, which says that "scientific evidence does not support the notion that abortion of any kind raises the risk of breast cancer or any other type of cancer."

Nonetheless, Barber and Staver are quite sure that such a link exists because it is only natural for a "sin" like abortion to carry with it deadly consequences.

"Scripture talks about the wages of sin is death," Barber said. "It strikes me that abortion is a sin, abortion is absolutely a sin, so the natural consequence of an unnatural behavior of going in an killing an unborn baby in the mother's womb therefore wreaking havoc, killing the child, that is a sin and the wages of sin there, the natural consequence of that havoc that has been wreaked here is an increased risk of breast cancer."

When Barber sought to clarify that he was not saying that breast cancer is God's way of punishing women who have had abortions, Staver stepped in to say that having an abortion was no different than ingesting poison.

"You take strychnine or you take some kind of poison into your body, you have to expect that there's going to be consequences," Staver said. "It's an obvious natural consequence to an act, a choice that someone makes":

Beck: 'We Are A Nation That Will Destroy Themselves' By Mocking God

Continuing the theme from yesterday's radio program, Glenn Beck spent a good portion of today's show once again fuming that America is allowing God to be openly mocked, citing an incident in Florida where local elected officials walked out of a commission meeting when an atheist was invited to deliver the invocation.

The Supreme Court recently ruled that government meetings can be opened with prayer so long as there is no discrimination about who may give them, but Beck obviously disagrees with that position as he was absolutely livid that the atheist speaker used the opportunity to mock belief in God, declaring that "we are a nation that will destroy themselves" if we allow this sort of thing to continue.

After warning atheists that they should not be mocking God just based on the fact that they could be wrong about God's existence, Beck demanded to know "since when do we have to get snarky in our city council meetings at the moment of prayer?"

"We are a nation that will destroy themselves," he warned. "I promise you, in time we will all regret this. If we turn our back on the giver of all that is good, we will regret it":

Texas Pastor: 'Dirty Faggots' Want To Snatch And Rape Your Kids

Pastor Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona, infamous for his virulently anti-gay preaching and open calls for gays to be put to death, seems to have found at least one acolyte eager to help him spread his message.

In August, Anderson ordained Pastor Donnie Romero, who then established Stedfast Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, where he preached the message last Sunday that all gays should "be put to death."

Romero says that if he ever goes "soft on sin," he hopes that his children will call him out and tell him to "get up there and rip on these queers because it's only getting worse and worse."

"I'm not going to let any of these dirty faggots inside my church," Romero said. "They are all pedophiles ... They're always trying to rape and hurt other people. They're relentless. They are relentless. They are predators and given an opportunity to snatch one of your children, they would do it in a heartbeat":

Fischer: Release Of Torture Report Shows That Democrats Are 'Juvenile Delinquents'

The AFA's Bryan Fischer was predictably outraged by the release of the Senate report on the CIA's use of torture ... not by the torture itself, mind you, but rather by the release of the report detailing it, fuming on his radio program yesterday that the Democrats only released the report to be "petty" and "juvenile."

"They just got voted out of office," he said. "This was their last chance to poke a finger in the eye of President Bush. I mean, they're like juvenile delinquents; they've been occupying this house, sitting in this house, they've just been evicted from the house, they're going to have to vacate the house on January 1. They're going to have to get out of there January 1 and so they're like juvenile delinquents that decide we're going to trash this place on the way out the door. We don't like the fact that we're going to have to vacate the premises January 1 so we are going to do as much damage on the way out the door as we possibly can":

  • Rep. Louie Gohmert invited ultraconservative pastor Robert Jeffress to deliver the opening prayer in the House of Representatives today.
  • End Times broadcaster Jan Markell warns that now that the elections are over, "the White House is going to unleash unholy hell on the nation of Israel."
  • Obviously, the key lesson to be taken away from the Eric Garner tragedy is that "the tax hungry state is out of control, using police power to crack down on petty black market sales, to enforce the obscene taxation that created the black market in the first place."
  • Peter LaBarbera is scandalized: "When it comes to promiscuity and perversion, homosexual men are in a league by themselves."
  • Finally, Janet Porter says that the American Atheists' "skip church" billboards are proof that God exists because "nobody takes out billboards to attack fairy tales."

Beck: 'Family Guy' Basically Re-crucified Jesus Christ

Glenn Beck is very upset about the most recent episode of "Family Guy," which featured a plot portraying Jesus Christ, as The Blaze puts it, "as a lying, sex-crazed adulterer."

After fuming that "it is not brave" for people to mock Christianity, Beck took a moment to attack "Saturday Night Live" as "the biggest group of pussies on the planet" for supposedly refusing to adequately mock President Obama, before he got back to venting his displeasure over this particular "Family Guy" episode.

"Every great, truly great, freeing act was inspired by the teachings of Jesus Christ," Beck declared. "Why would we take down just that man? Why would we make him into a joke? Out of all of the people you can joke about, all of the things you could do and did we sit here as a nation and laugh as he was mocked. Why not just put him up at the pillar again? Why not just whip him and beat him? Why not just publicly humiliate him? Why not just tear his clothing from him, spit on him, and when he asks for water, we give him vinegar?"

"Father, forgive them," Beck concluded, "they know not what they do":
