Right Wing Round-Up - 7/1/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 7/1/14

  • Gary Bauer is turning against Rand Paul.
  • FRC responds to the Hobby Lobby decision exactly as one would expect: "President Obama's team insisted that the 'right' to sex-on-demand trumps Americans' First Freedom, a privilege millions of men and women have died to protect."
  • In arguing that Christians cannot be gay-affirming, Michael Brown explains that "God did intend to legislate slavery in ancient Israel, but in a humane way and as part of a larger economic system.
  • On a similar note, if you are a Christian who thinks that homosexuality is okay, you apparently also have to think that incest, adultery, child sacrifice, and bestiality are okay as well.
  • Ron Hart comes to Dinesh D'Souza's defense despite obviously having no understanding of what D'Souza actually did or the fact that he admitted his guilt.
  • Finally, Laurie Higgins declares that "no arm of the government has any right to promote non-facts about homosexual activity or gender confusion."

Mike Farris Stopped The ERA Because It Would Lead To Gay Marriage

Earlier this month, David Barton, Rick Green, and Mike Farris held a webinar focused on promoting an Article V Convention of the States, the latest right-wing plan to bring together representatives from all fifty states to draft constitutional amendments that will dramatically limit the power of Congress and the federal government.

WallBuilders has been airing portions of this webinar on its daily radio program this week and on today's installment, Farris noted that lots of conservatives leaders are supporting such a convention, with the exception of the Eagle Forum's Phyllis Schlafly, who has been vehemently opposed to the idea for years.

In defending the need for an Article V convention, Farris bent over backwards to praise Schlafly as his "dear, wonderful friend" who is simply wrong about this issue, saying that "in a fifty years career of absolute perfection, she's entitled to one mistake."

Farris went on a brag that he had worked side-by-side with Schlafly in fighting against the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s, noting that they argued against it by warning that it would lead to gay marriage:

One of the arguments we made was if you do this, it's gonna lead to homosexual marriage and people laughed at us.

Homosexual marriage? That's the craziest idea in the world!

Well, it turns out, we weren't so crazy after all.

Gee, it's good thing they stopped the ERA, otherwise we'd have the legalization of gay marriage rapidly spreading all across the country. Thank goodness Farris and Schlafly stopped that from happening!

Ben Carson Says That Legal Abortion Is Human Sacrifice

While appearing on DoveTV recently, Ben Carson said that America has no right to assert that ancient civilizations were "heathen" for practicing human sacrifice since this nation is doing the same thing by allowing abortion to remain legal.

Carson, who has no problem endorsing candidates who support abortion rights in order to win votes, was responding to a comment by host Perry Atkinson who said that if America could just end abortion then "all of the other things that God would be interested in helping us with would fall into alignment."

"It's interesting," Carson said, "that we sit around and call other ancient civilizations 'heathen' because of human sacrifice, but aren't we actually guilty of the same thing?"

Bryan Fischer Warns Gay-Friendly Advertising Is 'Gonna Trigger A Blowback From Ordinary Americans'

Today, the Long Beach Press Telegram ran an article looking at the ways in which "companies are coming out of the closet with rainbow ads blazing to court lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender consumers."

As more and more companies have "launched marketing or social media campaigns advocating equality and acceptance" in recent years, the article also notes that not everyone is happy about it, quoting the penultimate anti-gay bigot Bryan Fischer who laughably warns that all this gay-friendly "garbage" is eventually going to "trigger a blowback from ordinary Americans":

Groups such as One Million Moms, however, have reacted negatively to LGBT-inclusive ads. The activist organization recently pushed supporters to protest against Hotwire and Nabisco’s Honey Maid and Teddy Grahams because of commercials that it said is an “attempt to normalize sin.”

The American people “will put up with a lot of garbage before they react,” said Bryan Fischer, spokesman for the nonprofit American Family Association, which maintains OneMillionMoms.com. But advertisers are tempting people’s patience and generosity, he said.

“I think eventually this LGBT advertising push is gonna trigger a blowback from ordinary Americans,” Fischer said. “I think that ordinary Americans are getting fed up with having the homosexual agenda shoved down their throats when they’re watching TV with their families. … What American families are gonna begin to react to is that they are recognizing that this is no longer about advertising a product. This is about propaganda for a sexually deviant lifestyle.”

Right Wing Round-Up 6/30/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/30/14

  • For some reason, Pope Francis met with James Robison and Kenneth Copeland.
  • The Family Leader contingent has been ousted from the leadership of the Iowa Republican Party.
  • It was not all good news for the Religious Right from the Supreme Court today, as the court refused to hear Liberty Counsel's challenge to California's ban on ex-gay therapy.
  • Laurie Higgins warns that "even if homosexuals win the term 'marriage,' and win all the gazillions of benefits they feel that homoerotic unions deserve, and even if they’re able to acquire children through morally dubious means, homosexuals will not rest until they have widespread public affirmation of their relationships which they believe cannot be achieved unless they obliterate all distinctions—including linguistic distinctions—between homosexual unions and heterosexual unions."
  • Finally, Anne Graham Lotz says that God has been revealing a lot of things to her recently and "one of the things He has impressed on me is that we are living at the end of human history as we know it."

Bryan Fischer Uses Science To Explain Hobby Lobby Ruling, Abortion, And Global Cooling

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer reacted to the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision by praising the court for relying on "good science," by which he means science that corresponds to what the Bible says, in recognizing that certain forms of contraception cause abortions.

While praising Hobby Lobby for standing on the side of science, Fischer went off on a tangent about how science also shows that global warming is "just complete bilge" because the world is actually heading into a period of global cooling, which liberals simply refuse to acknowledge.

"It's crazy," Fischer said. "They're just blind to that. They're willfully, obtusely blind to science," he continued, eventually getting back to the court decision by stating that "Hobby Lobby is the one that is locked into science here" because it recognized that contraception causes abortion:

Joyner: Science Proves God Created The Universe At The Big Bang When He Said 'Let There Be Light'

While preaching at his MorningStar Fellowship Church last week, Rick Joyner revealed that he spends hours every week studying science, which has led him to conclude that science has proven that God created the universe at the Big Bang when He said "let there be light."

"The Big Bang Theory did confirm," Joyner explained, "there was a point of creation. There was a nanosecond where nothing existed in the physical universe and a nanosecond later, all of the matter and all of the energy in the universe now was there instantly. And this has been pretty much a theory confirmed that everything came in one burst, at one time, and it was when God said 'let there be light'":

Barber: Gay Marriage Is 'The Brainchild' Of Satan

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Mat Staver and Matt Barber cited recent remarks made by Pope Francis about how "the Devil wants to destroy" the family in order to declare that gay marriage is "the brainchild" of Satan himself.

"Marriage is the cornerstone institution of any healthy society," Barber asserted, "and so clearly the Father of Lies, the Enemy of the World hates marriage, wants to destroy marriage and so this concept of counterfeit marriage, of same-sex marriage, that is the brainchild, Mat, of none other than the Father of Lies himself."

Staver was in complete agreement, saying that gay marriage is an effort to "abolish all truth" as part of Satan's "attack on God."

"Ultimately, at the end of the day," Staver said, "it is a spiritual attack ... This is the bidding of the Devil. This is a spiritual assault on all of us who are made in the image of God":
