On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer took a call from "Rebecca in College Station, Texas" who shared her theory that the massive flooding taking place in Texas is God's punishment for "witchcraft and sodomy."
As Rebecca explained, the only parts of Texas that are underwater are the parts "that are overrun with witchcraft and sodomy" like Austin and Houston, which has a "sodomite mayor."
On the other hand, the area where Rebecca lives is not underwater, even though she lives in a valley, and that is because "we kicked out abortion" and the people who live there hold conservative views.
"If God is judging Texas, it's because of the witchcraft and sodomy that we've allowed to run rampant," Rebecca said, and Fischer responded by agreeing that that was a very plausible explanation.
"If you're going to attribute the flooding in Texas to some kind of supernatural cause, you can make a geographical connection between the flooding and the practice of the occult and witchcraft and the embrace of homosexuality," he said. "That's where the disaster is being felt the worse."
Fischer then explained that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was also a very localized natural disaster that "just wiped out those two cities where homosexuality had been embraced [so] if you're going to make a case that there is some supernatural origin to this natural disaster, that would probably be the place to look";
Pastor Erwin Lutzer was among the speakers at the Family Research Council's "Watchmen on the Wall" conference last week where he warned that homeschooling parents could find their children taken away by the state if the Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage.
Saying that the freedom of religion protected in America is a historical anomaly, Lutzer warned that Christians should expect it to be stripped away "by a hostile state" in the near future.
"In America today, you know that the same-sex marriage issue is very, very important," he said. "Let me tell you that it would not be surprising to me if, in the future, homeschool parents, for example, if they were examined would perhaps fall under the category of what is being known as 'intolerant personality syndrome.' And it's not too far a stretch to believe that their children would be taken from them because they are declared as unfit parents":
On his most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, Gordon Klingenschmitt hailed the news that former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi had been sentenced to death, saying that Morsi’s death sentence was prophesied in the Bible as a sign that Egypt would "come of Jesus Christ."
Klingenschmitt said that he discerned "the spirit of freedom" upon current Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi for leading a military coup that overthrew "the tyrant Morsi" who was trying to impose Islam on the nation. And in sentencing Morsi to death, Klingenschmitt said, Biblical prophecy is now coming to fruition.
"This is, perhaps, a fulfillment of Scripture," he said. "This was prophesied, these days were prophesied by the Old Testament prophet Isaiah in chapter 19. He said, and God spoke to him about a prophecy about Egypt — in fact, it was against the demonic spirits in Egypt at that time — but he said that the Lord would deliver them and give them freedom."
Citing a passage stating that God "will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian, brother will fight against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom," Klingenschmitt said that we are now seeing this prophecy fulfilled and it will lead to a "great evangelistic explosion [in Egypt] and they come to Jesus Christ":
John Zmirak, a conservative columnist and the senior editor of James Robison's "The Stream" website who has been issuing warnings that failure to pass laws that protect the rights of Christian business owners to discriminate against gay customers will lead to anti-Christian genocide, is calling for Christians to strike back by boycotting companies that opposed such laws.
Appearing on the "Point of View" radio program yesterday, Zmirak said that Christian consumers need to start threatening companies like Apple and Walmart with boycotts since these companies opposed "right to discriminate" laws in Indiana and Arkansas.
"We need to threaten them back," he said. "I can't believe any Christian in America will ever buy an Apple product again after the CEO of Apple threatened Indiana over religious freedom. I can't believe any Christian will go to Walmart after Walmart threatened Arkansas over religious freedom. You know what? You want to take my religious freedom away, I won't buy from your business. I will make the sacrifice and buy something else or I will do without, but I am not going to patronize the enemies of my religion. If we keep buying these products from companies that want to persecute us, we pretty much deserve it":
The Iowa Religious Right group the Family Leader will not be asking GOP presidential candidates to sign its "Marriage Vow" pledge this time around, as it did in 2012.
Apparently, the American Family Association needs money so that it can begin broadcasting its right-wing radio programs in Washington, D.C.
Keith Fournier, Alveda King and Ken Blackwell will be participating next month in a Family Research Council event entitled "Marriage and Civil Rights: How to Respond Rightly If the Court Gets It Wrong."
Get ready, because June 6 is "The Pill Kills Truth National Day of Action."
Steve Deace is furious with "the GOP establishment [which] fought harder and dirtier last year to keep an aging and largely disorientated liberal adulterer in the U.S. Senate, than they fought to get Obama out of the White House in 2012."
Finally, Larry Tomczak warns that array of catastrophes could be right around the corner, including "devastating economic collapse; horrific drought, gas and food shortages; Middle East war; a series of coordinated Islamic terrorist attacks; outbreak of new AIDS-like virus; racial riots erupting nationwide; multiple massive earthquakes, EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) Internet-crippling attack; assassinations and political chaos."
On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer took a call from "Bruce in Dallas, Texas" who offered up a novel solution to the problem of Islamic terrorism in the Middle East, suggesting that every time a terrorist kills or kidnaps a Christian, the U.S. government ought to shut down one mosque here in America.
After Bruce asserted that such a system would quickly bring an end to Islamic terrorism because after a few hundred American mosques are closed, the funding for terrorism would dry up, Fischer chimed in to voice his full support for this solution.
"What you're suggesting," Fischer said, "is that there be some kind of justice there, if you have an American victim overseas, we're going to close down one of your mosques. I think that is absolutely fair and its just. I like the way you think, Bruce."
Right-wing Christian apologist and American Family Radio host Alex McFarland appeared on TheDove TV recently to explain that belief in evolution is the root cause of racism in America today.
The Bible teaches that there is only one race, the human race, and that all people are made in the image of God, McFarland said, so logically people who hold racist views must be getting those ideas from elsewhere.
Apparently unaware that slavery existed long before Darwin wrote "On the Origin of Species," McFarland laughably asserted that the Founding Fathers knew that all men are created equal and blamed "150 years of Darwinian evolution" for supposedly undermining that core American principle.
"Evolution, for about 75 years, has had a stranglehold on American education," McFarland declared, "and so the number one reason for racism is belief in evolution."
Southern Evangelical Seminary president Richard Land was a guest on TheDove TV a few weeks ago, where he declared that America's current political leadership is a sign that God's judgment is now upon this nation.
Land, who once called President Obama "a judgment of God on the United States," said that just as God heaped His judgment upon the nation of Israel, so too is He willing to punish America and is, in fact, doing so right now.
"I believe He is judging the United States of America," Land said. "I don't believe that you can kill 56 million babies in child sacrifice through abortion and not expect that God won't judge the nation. I believe we're in the state we're in today because of the judgment of God. I get asked all the time, 'Where is the next Abraham Lincoln? Where is the next Ronald Reagan? Where is the next Billy Graham?' Well, my answer is great political and spiritual leadership in our country is a sign of God's blessing; its absence is a sign of God's judgment."
