Fischer: If Christian Businesses Must Serve Gay Customers, They Should Deliver Anti-Gay Sermons The Whole Time

On his radio program yesterday, during which he warned that efforts to clarify Indiana's "religious freedom" law would lead to Christians being placed in slavery, Bryan Fischer suggested that if Christians business owners are required to provide services to gay weddings, they should do so while delivering a sermon on the evils of homosexuality the entire time.

"Yeah, I will bake your same-sex marriage wedding cake," Fischer said, "but I am going to preach the Gospel to you the whole time I am doing it. I am going to warn you about the abominable nature of the behavior you're engaged in. I'm going to warn you about mocking God. I'm going to warn you about blaspheming the true and divine nature of true marriage. I am going to warn you about the mortal danger you are in of suffering hellfire and eternal damnation."

"You come in to get a wedding cake from me and you're a homosexual," he said, "you'll get your wedding cake, but you are going to get a sermon in the process":

For $150, Glenn Beck Will Help Women Realize Their God-Given Right 'To Feel Pretty'

Glenn Beck took to his Facebook page this morning to announce the release of a new series of denim jeans and jackets from his 1791 clothing line and, in typical Beck fashion, he managed to do so in pretty much the most sanctimonious and self-aggrandizing way imaginable.

Beck explained that whenever he used to go shopping with his daughters, they could never find clothes that fit them properly and, as a result, he "vowed if I ever had a chance I would start a fashion line that was cool, hip, and great quality that would come in sizes that would fit."

Now that day has come and Beck is finally able to help the women of the world realize their "fundamental God given rights" to "feel pretty" and it is all thanks to "the power of a dads [sic] love for his daughter":

Today I make good on that promise. 1791 is proud to announce our new line of women's Denim. We begin with denim jacket and jeans.

They were designed for and tested on all the girls in my life. It has taken us almost two years to get the design just right.

I am proud that finally I can rest knowing any dad who feels the way I do about the most beautiful girl ever born, my daughter, will be able to feel that way when she slips into her favorite jeans, blouse and jacket.

My wife who is a little more like the current runway models and my daughter who is more classic both can wear and love their new 1791s.

I kind of think it is one of those fundamental God given rights. To feel pretty.

Because you are.

As we grow so will our selection and sizes because it is time we celebrate real diversity. After all, God made us different colors, shapes and sizes.

Please check out the beginning of our new line of women's clothing at 1791.com and see what the power of a dads love for his daughter can build.

Unfortunately for Beck, his announcement is not quite being met with the chorus of accolades that he apparently expected, but rather comment after comment from fans wondering exactly how they are supposed to be able to afford his new $150 jeans:

  • These are great! But most women can't afford a $150 pair of jeans
  • I wish you had made them more affordable!!! I can't spend $300 on 2 pairs of jeans when I spend that much every season for clothes for my family of 4.
  • That's a nice story and a nice idea, but I wonder if Glenn could have paid $160 for a single pair of jeans back then? Ouch. I think you've lost touch with what it's like to live on the edge in modern day middle-income America. If I bought a pair of your jeans, if have to use this week's grocery $. And then some. Sigh.
  • Remember when you weren't rich or famous? Yeah, that describes your fan base.
  • You're kidding right? $170 for a pair of jeans? $76 for a flannel shirt? NO ONE I know can afford to shop there. We are all working stiffs with mortgages and kids and car payments; we work most days from 7-5 and Saturdays too.
  • Oh wow, a pair of jeans that comprises my grocery budget for the week. Not cool. While they are probably awesome, not for poor folk like me, fat or not.
  • These would be great if they were actually affordable to working-class families. I applaud your determination and the reason why this clothing line started, but these are not jeans that "real" people can afford. $170 for a pair of jeans is nothing to the Hollywood elite, but a good chunk of a working man's (or woman's) paycheck better spent on food for the family. Great quality or not, the average American will not be buying these.
  • I heard you talking about them on the radio. I went to the web site and was excited to buy a pair. Than I saw the price. $ 150.00 for middle class women is to expensive for me. I wish I could have ordered a pair. Lower the price please so that normal people can purchase a pair.
  • LOVE the idea, but $150 for a pair of jeans? NOPE!
  • You had great things to say.......BUT........for the most part, your audience can't afford these clothes! I thought you were in touch?!
  • ONE pair of jeans ($150), ONE flannel shirt ($90), and ONE T-shirt ($24) = $264 (plus tax). Get real.

  • Gordon Klingenschmitt is now refusing to give interviews to 9 News in Colorado until the station issues a retraction of its coverage of his recent comments, which the station is refusing to do.
  • You are invited to the premier of Rick Green's new television program, "Red, White, Blue, & Green."
  • BarbWire's Gina Miller has penned another typically reasonable column: "Since Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) took office, the militant homosexual movement has made terrible gains for their sordid goals in all areas of our nation, and the homofascists are hell-bent to defend those gains from any real or perceived losses."
  • Peter LaBarbera declares that "Christians and moral-minded citizens have been victimized by a liberal, elitist pro-homosexual orthodoxy that increasingly brooks no dissent."
  • Finally, it really is too bad that Michele Bachmann is no longer in Congress: "With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 300 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German Wings flight - a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks. After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?"

Bryan Fischer: Clarifying Indiana's 'Religious Freedom' Law Will Lead To Slavery

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer voiced his opposition to any effort to clarify Indiana's "religious freedom" law, warning that doing so will result in Christians in the state being pushed into slavery.

As Fischer explained it, when Gov. Mike Pence said that the law should be clarified to make clear that no business will have the right to deny services to customers, he seemed to be signaling that religious bakers or florists or photographers will be compelled to provide their services to gay weddings, which is unconstitutional because slavery was outlawed under the Thirteenth Amendment.

"I'm afraid Governor Pence is dangerously close to allowing the homosexual lobby to get the state of Indiana," he warned, "to compel people to provide labor against their will.  What do we call it when people are compelled to provide labor against their will? Involuntary labor, what do we call that, ladies and gentlemen? That is involuntary servitude, that is slavery, that is something that is forbidden by the Thirteenth Amendment":

Matthew Hagee: Stopping Gay Marriage Is 'A Matter Of Survival'

A few weeks ago, Matthew Hagee warned on his weekly "Hagee Hotline" program that since same-sex unions cannot naturally produce children, by legalizing gay marriage "you are taking away the ability of that society to survive."

Apparently convinced that this is a compelling and intelligent argument, Hagee repeated it on yesterday's program, declaring that it is an "economical fact" that America needs more people and so allowing gay marriage will inevitably lead to the total collapse of society.

"It is impossible for same-sex marriage to do what biblical marriage does: create children," Hagee said. "Without the procreation of children, the American society economically, will fail; culturally, will fail. It is not a matter of right or privilege, it's a matter of survival":

Matthew Hagee: The Fight Against Gay Rights 'Is A War Between Good And Evil'

On yesterday's "Hagee Hotline," televangelist Matthew Hagee called upon viewers to contact their legislators in support of legislation like Indiana's "religious freedom" law, warning that if they don't, "we will lose the battle for righteousness in America."

"We have turned out back on values that have made us great," Hagee said, "and we have embraced the values that deteriorate society. We accept what others in past civilizations would have called appalling and yet we call appalling any individual who is willing to stand up and speak truth based on their convictions."

After asserting that God is very clear in both the Old and New Testament that homosexuality is "an abomination," Hagee called upon "people of faith and those who love truth" to contact their legislators in support of efforts to fight gay rights because this is a war between good and evil.

"Believe me, it is a war," he said. "It is a war between good and evil. It is a war between light and darkness. It is a war in which you have to make up your mind to either fully engage or become an ally of the Adversary who would like to see a lie become a truth and the truth become a lie":

Bryan Fischer: Co-Pilot's Alleged Homosexuality May Explain German Plane Crash

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer seized upon a news report that Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who is believed to have deliberately crashed a German flight last week, killing everyone on board, had "trawled gay porn websites and sites relating to suicide" to raise the possibility that Lubitz's alleged homosexuality may have played a role in the crash.

As Fischer explained, "it's striking that one of the health risks that's associated with homosexual behavior is an increased risk of suicidal ideation ... Now we are discovering that, perhaps, [Lubitz] was involved in homosexuality, was taking drugs for depression, and perhaps that would explain his suicidal crash of that plane":

Lubitz had a girlfriend at the time of the crash, a fact that seemed to be lost on Fischer, who has suggested in the past that homosexuality is a chosen behavior rather than an innate orientation.
