Klingenschmitt: Drug-Induced Hallucinations Are Demonic Spirits

"Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt finally returned to his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today after several weeks away, kicking of the first program with a segment opposing the legalization of marijuana in his home state of Colorado by warning that a demonic spirit of addiction was at work and that people were opening themselves up to possession by using recreational drugs.

"There is a demonic spirit of drunkenness," Klingenschmitt said, "but this drunkenness, this desire for pleasure where we invite these spirits into us ... and why do you think you have hallucinations? These spiritual visions that you have are not just biological; they're actually demonic":

  • Good point, Gary Bauer: "Ted Kennedy can drive a woman off a bridge and go on to serve decades in the Senate and be hailed as a courageous leader. But if a Republican shuts down a bridge, the left is ready to breakout the pitchforks."
  • It is time for the church to start preparing for the fall of America.
  • Eugene Delgaudio's Public Advocate will be protesting Terry McAuliffe's inauguration.
  • Speaking of Delgaudio, you would think that, at some point, the voters in Loudoun County would grow tired of being embarrassed by him and vote him out of office.
  • Glenn Beck's public opposition to throwing gays into the ovens causing him to lose supporters.
  • Finally, speaking of Beck, we genuinely have no idea what this latest conspiracy theory is that he promotes at the beginning of this clip.

Barber: Contraception Mandate Like Forcing Someone To Pay For A Hitman

On yesterday's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Matt Barber and Mat Staver discussed the stay issued by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, temporarily blocking the Affordable Care Act's contraception mandate from applying to an order of Catholic nuns known as the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Under the contraception mandate, religious organizations simply have to fill out a form declaring that the organization objects to having to provide contraception to its employees, which then obligates the insurance provider to provide such coverage separately.

But as Barber put it, this is unacceptable because it is no different than forcing a religious group to pay to hire a hit man to murder someone:

Barber: This is illusory, this compromise, this accommodation that the Obama administration and the HHS is calling it. It's a Chicago-style shell game. This is no different, the analogy that came to mind when I first heard about this so-called accommodation to religious organizations, it's like telling someone to go out and shoot somebody, to kill somebody. Because that's what we're talking about here, abortion is homicide, it's the taking of innocent human life. So we're saying you have fun going out and shooting somebody and you say 'no,no, I can't do that, I'm not going to do that.' And they say 'well, what we'll do is we'll set up a straw man; you have to sign on the dotted line so a hit man, on your behalf, can go out and kill somebody.' That's what we're talking about here.

In law, Mat, as you know, just because you hire out the murder doesn't mean that you're not responsible for the crime. It's still first degree murder. This is no different than what the Obama Administration is trying to do.

Staver: Even though you're not the one paying for the murder, but you're the one who sets it up and authorizes it, then you're still part of it.

Is David Barton A Time Traveler?

We are starting to suspect that David Barton either owns a time machine or else he simply has a tendency to exaggerate about the amount of work that he does.

Last year, Barton was the keynote speaker at the Family Leader's "Celebrate The Family" dinner where he delivered his standard presentation, but one thing caught our attention, which was his standard assertion that he speaks to hundreds of groups every year. In this case, Barton said that he personally "spoke to over 600 different groups" in the last year, which averages out to speaking to a group and a half every single day for an entire year.

That seemed a little hard to believe simply on its face. But it becomes even harder to believe in light of his later assertion that he owns a ranch that requires him to work "from sun up to sun down" fourteen hours a day during the summer.

"We wish we had eight hour days like people in the city have," Barton said. "We never get eight hour days; that would be a vacation. We work all the time":

How on earth does Barton manage to speak to more than 600 groups every year while also working all day long on his ranch during the summer?

  • Politico profiles "America's craziest governor," Paul LePage.
  • "God is not homophobic." He just doesn't like gays, apparently.
  • Peter LaBarbera unveils the first half of his "Ten Culture-Engaging Resolutions for 2014 for Christians Fighting the ‘Gay’ Agenda."
  • The Southern Baptist Convention's "ERLC Leadership Network is about ministering in the midst of a devil-haunted universe."
  • You too can read and sign the "Declaration of Dependence."
  • Finally, FRC prays that God will move the Supreme Court to "stop the Obama administration from pushing pro-abortion Obamacare down the throat of the American people."

Fischer: Obama Uneasy About Afghanistan Because 'His Sympathies Are With The Islamic Faith'

Over the last few days, Bryan Fischer has dedicated several segments of his radio show to discussing the claims made by former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates in his new book, especially Gates' assertion that President Obama had serious doubts about the strategy his administration was pursuing in Afghanistan.

On his show today, Fischer speculated that Obama's doubts were rooted in the fact that Obama is "disparaging of Christianity" because "his sympathies are with the Islamic faith." As such, Obama didn't want to send US troops into Afghanistan "because they were going to be killing Muslims"

Beck: 'We Are The New Revolutionaries'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck highlighted a large piece of artwork that was recently installed in his network headquarters representing his David vs. Goliath fight against the mainstream media as depicted by a giant New York Times figure seeking to crush a Beck's TheBlaze, which is armed only with a slingshot:

The image really appealed to Beck because, as he explained, "we are the new revolutionaries."

"These guys are 'the man,' Beck said, referring to outlets such as the Times and the Huffington Post. "They have all of the power. They have all of the tools. They have all of the money. They have all of the media. We're the little guy. We're David, they're Goliath. The little guy wins, but we have to stop acting and looking and sounding like the establishment because we're not. We are anti-establishment. I am proud to say it: I am anti-establishment":

Santorum Intends To Turn His Movie Studio Into 'The Pixar Of Faith Movies'

The first film released under Rick Santorum's leadership at EchoLight Studios was "The Christmas Candle," which didn't even manage to earn back a third of its $7 million budget.

But Santorum maintains a grand vision for the future, telling Matthew Hagee, who is apparently a talk show host now, that he intends to turn EchoLight into "the Pixar of faith movies":
