Linda Harvey wants it made clear that "Bruce Jenner is still a guy, and God is not mocked."
Glenn Beck falsely declares that "you have people now who are being put in jail because they were a baker who wouldn’t make [for a gay couple's wedding] — in jail! Not a fine. Jail."
Finally, FRC prays for this nation because "our leaders are intentionally depleting American military power, converting an institution intended to defend our nation by fighting and winning wars into a massive social experiment. Prompted by the Obama Administration, they are mainstreaming LGBT behavior and thus subjecting our young warriors to an epidemic of homosexual assault – all for the sake of an immoral and blind ideology."
Last year, Glenn Beck totally freaked out over the release of the video for Nicki Minaj's song "Only," which he bizarrely claimed was a violation of the biblical command to keep kosher because it was mixing "graphic, awful sex with the images of death."
It turns out that this idea was something he had learned directly from his favorite right-wing rabbi, Daniel Lapin, who appeared on his radio program this morning to further expand upon this theory and enlighten Beck's audience to the fact that women get emotional during menstruation because they are sad about the loss of potential life.
After Beck brought up his concerns about society's tendency to mix images of sex with images of death, Lapin explained that this was exactly why God prohibited anyone from touching a woman for seven days during her monthly period in Leviticus 15, since sex represents life while a menstrual period represents death.
As Lapin put it, "the good Lord created men with an infinite capacity to produce seed at almost any age whereas he chose to create women with an absolute finite limited number of eggs. And so the loss of an egg every month, for any sensitive woman, is sad because it's one less opportunity for life. And so foolish and insensitive people say, 'Oh, it's just a hormonal imbalance,' it isn't; it's a genuine, authentic sadness which suffuses any sensitive woman at the loss of an egg."
Beck, of course, was blown away by this revelation.
"Wow, I've never thought of it that way," he said. "It is actually a God-given sadness."
On yesterday's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, right-wing televangelist Rick Joyner reiterated his belief that a Supreme Court ruling striking down bans on gay marriage is a "trial run" for the Mark of the Beast.
After clarifying that he does not think this ruling will be the literal Mark of the Beast, but rather "is a remarkable parallel and does everything that [the Bible] says the Mark of the Beast will do," Joyner warned that Christian business owners will be faced with losing their livelihoods if gay marriage becomes legal nationwide.
"People are being put out of business because they would not violate their conscience, based on their belief in what God has said in his word about this issue, about homosexuality," Joyner said. "And because they would not violate that, which was a religious conviction, they've been put out of business. They can no longer buy, sell, or trade and that's what happens if you refuse to take the Mark of the Beast."
"We may be facing that situation," he continued, "and if this is not the Biblical Mark of the Beast that John wrote about in Revelation, it's at least a trial run."
Predictably, Glenn Beck is declaring that his new effort to mobilize churches is going to be "historic."
Star Parker says that "anyone who doesn’t see Rick Perry as an outstanding candidate for the nation’s highest office is not looking at the facts."
More reasonable thoughts from BarbWire's Gina Miller: "The militant homosexual movement is part of the devil’s plan, and is being used to create special 'rights' for sexual perverts and lunatics, phony rights that are intended to destroy the real rights of Christians and others opposed to the rise of the phoenix of Sodom and Gomorrah that the United States is quickly becoming."
Cliff Kincaid is outraged: "Our media are indeed consumed with the most extreme of the sexual minorities available, and they can’t wait to seize on another oddball behavior to promote on national television."
Finally, Live Action has some tips for Republicans discussing abortion rights for rape survivors: "Under no circumstances should you discuss (a) whether rape is more or less likely to result in pregnancy than consensual sex, (b) what percentage of rape claims you think are false, or (c) whether any given conception means a rape was part of God’s will."
Rick Santorum called into Glenn Beck's radio program this morning, where he warned that if the Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage, it will be an unconstitutional establishment of religion that, when he becomes president, he will not enforce.
Citing the absurd claims made by David Barton on his radio program yesterday, Beck warned that if the Supreme Court strikes down gay marriage bans, the government will strip churches of their tax-exempt status and force them to perform gay marriages, and asked Santorum how he would respond to this if he is elected president.
"This is tantamount to government establishing religion," Santorum said. "When the United States government comes in and says this is what you are going to believe, this is how you're going to practice your faith, this is a new religion. This violates, in my opinion, the Establishment Clause in the Constitution that says that Congress shall make no law with respect to an establishment of religion. If the government goes around and tells churches what they have to believe in and what their doctrine is, that is something that is a violation of the First Amendment."
Santorum said that he holds out hope that the Supreme Court will rule against marriage equality advocates "because there is no way that the left will stop at mere tolerance, they will demand conformity, they will demand it from the church, they will demand it from every institution, they will demand it from businesses and there will be no tolerance to a different point of view on this issue."
But if the Supreme Court does legalize gay marriage, Santorum said that, as president, he will fight it.
"If they get it wrong and the consequences are what I suspect they will be toward people of faith," he said, "then this president will fight back."
On his radio program today, Glenn Beck spent a segment discussing the recent video showing a white Texas police officer roughing up a black teenager girl at a pool party, which he naturally asserted was just more proof of his conspiracy theory that progressives are working to discredit the local police in order to justify a federal takeover.
During the discussion, Beck and his co-hosts wondered why adults in the area didn't intervene during the confrontation and help the police round up the teenagers at the party, concluding that nobody helped out because they were afraid of getting involved.
And since this is Glenn Beck, it was then only a matter of time before he brought it all back to Nazi Germany.
"They made you afraid," Beck said. "Why are people not speaking out on things now? You're afraid. Why don't you say things anymore? Because you might be called a nasty name. You might be destroyed. They are making you afraid. The first thing the goon squads that Hitler had out; do you know how he grabbed control of Germany? Now thank God, we're not here, but it's happening to us mentally."
Beck then went on to recall how Hitler's Brownshirts would beat up anyone who did not support their agenda in an effort to intimidate anyone who might consider voicing their opposition in order to warn that the same thing is happening in America today.
"That's how they did it," Beck said. "Well, that's happening to us mentally now. Every time you speak out, every time you don't comply, God forbid you say something about Caitlyn Jenner like Clint Eastwood, they'll hammer the snot out of you. They'll destroy your job, they'll destroy you socially, they'll make your name the worst bigoted name out there. You cannot be afraid. If you're afraid now, you wait. You stay silent much longer and it will get much, much worse."
Last month, a public school teacher sued his Colorado school district for allegedly allowing school officials to openly promote Christianity to students, claiming that a local pastor is regularly allowed to use the school's public address system to "preach his evangelical Christian messages" and that prayer meetings, Bible studies, and Christian events are held during school hours.
Among the complaints listed in the lawsuit is the allegation that this local pastor also hosts weekly Bible study session on campus over the lunch period, which students refer to as "Jesus pizza."
And Gordon Klingenschmitt, who happens to be a Republican member of the Colorado state legislature as well as a Religious Right activist, is outraged ... at this teacher for objecting, declaring on his most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program — without a hint of irony — that teachers "don't have a right to impose religious views upon the students."
"If you don't want to attend their 'Jesus pizza,' that's fine," Klingenschmitt said. 'You don't have to attend, but you don't get the right to sue to attend their 'Jesus pizza' because you're a teacher. Let the students organize themselves and have their own event. That's what the Supreme Court rules!"
Aside from the fact that this teacher is not suing for the right to attend these religious events but rather to put an end to them, Klingenschmitt is bizarrely arguing that it is perfectly fine for school officials to sanction and promote Christian events during school hours whereas efforts to stop that from happening is an effort to "impose religious views upon the students."
Religious Right activists and organizations areupinarms over a new Fox television program called "Lucifer" which, as its name would suggest, is about the Devil, who in this case happens to be running a night club in Los Angeles.
Southern Evangelical Seminary president Richard Land, a former leader of the Southern Baptist Convention's political arm, appeared on the "Newsmax Prime" program yesterday to voice his concerns about the program, the mere existence of which, he said, proves the extent to which Fox is "being influenced by satanic forces."
Calling the program "obscene" and "blasphemous," Land warned that "we live in a world that is racked with spiritual warfare, incessant spiritual warfare between good and evil and the Devil is the one that is fomenting evil. He's the source of evil in the world and he not only likes to take part in evil, but he delights in those who take part in evil with him and he enjoys and cackles with glee at all the pain and suffering he causes."
"He hates us and he hates God," Land continued, "and to portray him as some kind of romantic figure is not only tragic, it's wicked, and it just proves the truth of the Bible. The Bible says the he's the god of this age and the prince of the power of the air, which means that the Devil has some input into all worldly philosophy and all worldly activity. And Fox Entertainment is just showing the extent to which it's being influenced by satanic forces."
