Fischer: Gay Activists Should Support Russia's Anti-Gay Laws In The Name Of Diversity

The results are always interesting when Bryan Fischer thinks that he is being clever, as he was on his radio program yesterday when he spent a few minutes discussing Russia's recent ban on "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations around minors."

The discriminatory legislation has been met with outrage and protests around the world, but Fischer doesn't understand why since liberals and gay activists supposedly believe in diversity and, as such, they ought to be saying "hey, this is great!"

"We've got plenty of room in our multicultural world for all sorts of different cultural values and trends," Fischer mockingly proclaimed. "Isn't this wonderful what Russia is doing. Let's celebrate diversity and let's support this tradition in the nation of Russia":

Right Wing Round-Up - 8/1/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 8/1/13

  • FRC was praying that God would stop Samantha Power from being confirmed: "May God intervene to prevent Samantha Power from being confirmed to this important office! If not, may He raise up intercessors who will be used of the Lord to restrain her from acting and voting as her past behavior predicts she will." Looks like it didn't work.
  • Gee, what a surprise.  Glenn Beck is changing his position on the use of boycotts.
  • Have you always wished there was a line of stylish clothing available that was also covered in Bible verses? Well, you are in luck.
  • Cindy Jacobs has produced a handy guide for prayer warriors on how to "lay siege to their cities."
  • Is anyone surprised that when the "ex-gay" activists met with members of Congress yesterday, the "Republicans were definitely more sympathetic"?
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer began his show today by declaring that Islam is a "demonic, degraded, dark, devilish religion and we never should contemplate treating it on the same plane as we do Christianity." He then proceeded to interview Republican Senator Roger Wicker.

Hagee: 'People Who Are Educated Cannot Look At Two Men Married And Say That That's Right'

Over the July 4 holiday weekend, Matthew Hagee delivered a sermon in which he attacked the Supreme Court over its DOMA ruling, outraged that, as a result, "newspapers carried cover pages with homosexual couples kissing on the front page, requiring parents to explain to their young children why two people would engage in such behavior."

Hagee went on to warn that there was an attempt underway to undermine faith, family, and education because people of faith know that Supreme Court rulings are only legitimate to the extent to which they agree with the Bible and because "people who are educated cannot look at two men married and say that that's right":

Beck: We Are On The Verge Of Taking Over The Republican Party

As Glenn Beck has been vacillating between mania and depression over the last several weeks, he has been working to encourage his audience to telling them that they will be the ones who will save America and they are on the cusp of winning, so long as they refuse to give up.

He sought to rally the troops again today on his radio broadcast, telling them that they are now on the verge of completely taking over the Republican Party.

"I don't think people realize," Beck said, "how close you are to winning. Don't you see, in six years we haven't [ever] been this close to taking over taking over the Republican Party ... The next election, you're there":

Fischer: 'I Have No Hesitation In Saying, Flat Out, President Obama Is Not A Patriot'

Some day, this country will again have a Republican president and when that happens, critics will say things about that president that the Religious Right will find offensive and outrageous and they will throw a fit that anyone would dare to ever show such disrespect to the President of the United States and the office of the presidency.

And on that day, we will just trot out videos of Bryan Fischer declaring that President Obama "has a visceral dislike of America" and wants to see it torn down and utterly destroyed.

"I have no hesitation in saying, flat out, President Obama is not a patriot," Fischer says, "he is not a patriotic American":

Glenn Beck Provides A History Lesson To Reza Aslan

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck dedicated his opening monologue to attacking and "exposing the truth" about Reza Aslan and his new book about Jesus.  Of course, in the end, Beck's exposé was reduced to nothing more than his standard boogeyman of progressivism, the Tides Foundation, and George Soros.

But in the middle of it all was a fascinating segment where Beck took Aslan to task for supposedly not even understanding the Bible or the Gospels. Seizing on a piece Aslan wrote for the Washington Post in which he stated that "the gospels are not, nor were they ever meant to be, a historical documentation of Jesus’ life. These are not eyewitness accounts of Jesus’ words and deeds," Beck smugly declared that "this claim is flat out false."

He then cited the first passage in the Book of Luke, which he apparently believes demonstrably proves Aslan to be wrong:

Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.

Of course, this passage actually reinforces Aslan's point, as even the author of Luke is admitting that he has set out to write an account of event "just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses."  Luke is not an eyewitness account, as the very author admits; or as the "Introduction to the Gospel According to Luke" in the current ESV Study Bible put its: "It is known that the author was from the second generation of the early church, was not an 'eyewitness' of Jesus' ministry (Luke 1:2) and was a Gentile."

To make matters worse, Beck then bizarrely claimed that if a book like the Bible cannot be accurate, according to Aslan, because parts of it were written decades after the events they describe, then how could Aslan's book be trusted when it was written two thousand years after Jesus' death:

As we have said before, this is what happens when you learn your history from David Barton.

Right Wing Round-Up - 7/31/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 7/31/13

  • It is going to be fascinating to watch Glenn Beck, who thinks that David Barton is a great historian, try to take down Reza Aslan and his new book about Jesus.
  • Bryan Fischer says that President Obama is working to destroy America by intentionally weakening the military.
  • Janet Porter is out with a new video that has the top-notch production values we have come to expect from her.
  • Tony Perkins, Brent Bozell, and hundreds of other "conservative and Tea Party leaders are demanding that major news media outlets end their virtual blackout on the IRS targeting scandal."
  • Finally, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt says that, because of hates crimes legislation, it is now illegal to quote passages from the Bible that condemn homosexuality.  Of course, Chaps quoted those very passages in the video and has not been arrested, which pretty much proves that his entire claim is ridiculously false.

Fischer: 'We Shouldn't Operate In This Fantasy Land'

We know that when it comes to questions of science, Bryan Fischer is an authority who can fully be trusted because he has "an allegiance to science," which is why he doesn't believe in climate change or evolution and knows that Jesus holds the atomic nucleus together and that the Second Law of Thermodynamics was first mentioned in the Bible.

So it was no surprise to see him seize upon an op-ed in USA Today by a former president of the American Psychological Association claiming that "ex-gay" sexual reorientation therapy is not unethical to declare that anyone who thinks that gays are born that way is doing so "in defiance of science," adding that gay activists are "completely unhinged and unmoored" from reality.

"We shouldn't operate in this fantasy land, this make believe world where everything is fabricated and made up and there's no basis for it in reality" said Fischer ... the man who, just last week, recalled how he had once been targeted by a coven of local witches who had sent out a demonic spirit to attack him by grabbing his ankle while he slept:
