Swimp: Gay Men 'In Bottomless Pants' Are 'Literally Trying To Collapse Our Western Civilization'

Last week, Glenn Beck became enamored with a group of anti-gay black Religious Right activists who were vowing never to accept the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide. Beck arranged to have one of the leaders of this group, Michigan-based anti-gay activist Stacy Swimp, appear on his radio program today, even though Beck himself is off the air for the month due to health reasons.

That left Beck's co-hosts, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere, to interview Swimp and listen to him ramble on about how the "LGBT gestapo" is out to destroy the religious freedoms of Christians in America by allowing men to walk about "in bottomless pants" while subjecting their adopted children to unnecessary hormone therapy all in an effort to collapse Western Civilization.

"This is not even just about so-called gay marriage," Swimp said. "This is about an immoral revolution. Look at what they're doing, they're trying to superimpose it in our schools. Did you hear about the case in California, and this is not uncommon, where homosexuals who have been allowed to adopt children ... are taking them to get hormone shots because they're saying that this pre-adolescent wants to be of a different gender and so they're trying to stop the natural genetical [sic] process of this minor that they have custody of? This is what's happening, so this is getting to a point now where they're literally trying to collapse our Western Civilization. This is a moral, supernatural, spiritual thing that's manifesting itself in the political realm, in the social realm, in the cultural realm and if people like you and I and those of us who can see it don't do anything about it, I'm telling you, we're going to look up and we're going to have boys going to the girls' bathroom ... We're going to have men walking around in bottomless pants."

While Gray and Burguiere couldn't help but laugh at Swimp's parade of horribles, Swimp continued to warn that soon churches won't even be allowed to preach that homosexuality is a sin.

"Anytime that you have so-called gay rights being backed up by an expansion of government," he said, "what happens is you have a decrease of religious rights or religious freedom or religious conscious rights of Christian Americans. So beware, beware, and resist, resist, resist."

Trent Franks: Constitution Is 'The Greatest Gospel Outreach The World Has Ever Known'

Televangelist and "Holy Laughter" preacher Rodney Howard-Browne is once again holding a week-long revival meeting in Washington, D.C., called "Celebrate America," featuring Religious Right activists and Republican members of Congress.

Rep. Trent Franks spoke last night through an interpreter to a largely Hispanic audience, begging them to elect more Christians to office because the purpose of the Constitution and the United States is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.

"If America is to be saved, she will be saved by those who have been saved," the Arizona Republican said. "I'm crying out to you the best way I know how as someone who is in the seat of power in the United States Congress, please send more people that hold Christ in their hearts to the Congress."

Franks went on to say that the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide "was lost years earlier when we elected presidents that would appoint people who had no respect for the United States Constitution."

"Today, there are four people on the United States Supreme Court that revere the Constitution," he said. "There are four the revile it and there's one that doesn't know his name half of the time."

The Constitution now hangs by a thread, Franks warned, and if it falls "the greatest Gospel outreach the world has ever known will be gone" and that is why the audience must "do everything that you possibly can to make sure that the leaders in Washington are leaders that honor God."

  • Oklahoma Gov. Marry Fallin is vowing to fight a state Supreme Court decision ordering the removal of a Ten Commandments monument from the statehouse grounds.
  • Mark Shepard declares that "those who mock the very creation of man, by openly parading unnatural, destructive, unbounded sexuality in streets, legislative bodies and courts, have stolen that very symbol and use it to represent defiance against God."
  • Dan Delzell says that "it is ironic, and yes even tragic, that President Obama would choose to light the White House with a rainbow after the recent Supreme Court decision. It was his loud and proud way of celebrating the sin of same-sex marriage. Obviously, the president doesn't seem to believe that the Old Testament stories of Noah's Ark and Sodom and Gomorrah were actual events in history."
  • Bart Barber warns that "the advocates for the sexual revolution are quickly taking us back to first-century Rome."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer once again says that people speaking languages other than English in America is a sign of God's judgment: "God may not need to judge America by confusing our language. We're doing a pretty good job of that all by ourselves. Or perhaps, this is the way a sovereign God is bringing his judgment on a land that has turned its back on him."

Bryan Fischer Once Again Calls For Enacting Russian-Style Anti-Gay 'Propaganda' Laws In America

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer once again called for America to implement Russian-style anti-gay "propaganda" laws and to ban the formation of gay-straight alliance clubs in high schools.

Just as advertising cigarettes to children is illegal, Fischer said, so too should we ban the spread of gay "propaganda."

"We ought to be doing exactly the same thing with homosexuality," he said. "That's what Russia is doing. You can't propagandize youth in Russia because they don't want the youth of Russia to grow up thinking this is a normal alternative to heterosexuality. And homosexuality is not even against the law in Russia, just like smoking is not against the law in America but we do the same thing; we do not allow the propagandizing of America's young to think that there is something glamorous and exciting and healthy about cigarette smoking."

"If we're going to be concerned across the board about human health, then we ought to have exactly the same concern for people that are considering going into the homosexual lifestyle," he continued. "Let's talk them out of it. Let's persuade them against it. Let's refuse to allow our young people to be propagandized in preschool, in kindergarten, in elementary school into thinking this behavior is normal. In teenagers, let's not let them be propagandized, let's not have gay-straight alliance clubs on our high school campuses."

Theodore Shoebat: Satan Is Taking Over America With Sharia-Like 'Sodomism'

Theodore Shoebat is an anti-gay Religious Right activist who is so militant that he openly calls for gays and people who accept gays to be put to death, but that hasn't prohibited him from appearing in an anti-gay documentary along with leading Republican lawmakers and presidential hopefuls or being interviewed on right-wing Christian programs.

Last year, Shoebat made news when he called several gay-owned bakeries and asked them to make a cake for him bearing anti-gay-marriage slogans, so naturally TheDove TV's Perry Atkinson invited Shoebat onto his program yesterday to discuss the situation with an Oregon bakery that has been fined for denying service to a gay couple.

As one would expect, Shoebat had a rather radical take on the issue, declaring that Sharia law has already engulfed America in the form of "sodomism."

Saying that Christians "are being forced to participate [in] depraved debauchery," Shoebat warned that "Sharia law is already here, it's called the homosexual agenda."

"Islam does not need to take over America," he said, "the Devil is doing his work already in expanding and inundating the society with an equally if not more even tyrannical system than Islam. That is what I call 'sodomism.'"

Staver: Accepting Gay Marriage Ruling Is Like Turning A Jew Over To The Nazis

In the weeks and months leading up to the recent Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver had been a leading voice urging other anti-gay Religious Right activists to vow to refuse to accept such a ruling and to prepare to disobey it through civil disobedience.

Since the ruling came down, just about every episode of his "Faith and Freedom" radio program has been dedicated to hammering home this message and insisting that the decision is illegitimate and cannot be obeyed, with Staver once again declaring today that accepting the ruling is like handing a Jew over to the Nazis.

"There is a decision that is now here," Staver warned. "It may knock on the door at different times or it may knock on the door of your friend, or your church, or your business, but it will come to your door and you're going to make a decision. It's like the Nazis coming to someone who is seeking out a Jew; you're hoping that they're not going to come but one day that knock on the door comes. And when it comes, here's the choice: Will I obey God and resist this evil opinion or will I ultimately continue in my complicit silence and just simply go along to get along?"

"If the government continues down this path," he said, "then America will not stand. It's just pure and simple. You can't just simply continue down this path of rebellion against God and assume that you're going to stand forever. You will not ... This is either the beginning of revival and renewal and perhaps revolution or its the end of this country and the end of Western Civilization. It's as pure and simple as that."

Staver went on to say that he has "wept for our country" over this decision because "it is a horrible, sinful act" and "a sinful, disgraceful rebellion against God."

  • Mychal Massie warns that "homosexuals are not after equality; they, not unlike Muslims, are after conquest – and just like all terrorists, they have carefully conceived a plan they’ve been carrying out by any means available."
  • Fr. Marcel Guarnizo asserts that "the claim of homosexual marriage is akin to identity theft: Men claiming to be wives and women claiming to be husbands."
  • Bert Farias tells gays that "the true Christian community sees your house burning down and is trying to rescue you from a certain damnation. Those who are affirming your lifestyle are like those who watch you burn in the hellfire and tell you that everything is alright and God is actually proud of you."

Bryan Fischer's Amazing Inability To Abide By His Own Theory About The First Amendment

As we have noted several times before, Bryan Fischer has an utterly incoherent understanding of the First Amendment, insisting that it only applies to Congress whenever he wants to defend some possible establishment of religion violation but insisting that it applies to everyone when he wants to complain about some possible violation of its free exercise clause.

This basic contradiction popped up once again in his latest column in which he warns that Christians are becoming "the new Dred Scott" due to the recent Supreme Court ruling striking down state gay marriage bans. Citing cases involving Christian bakers who refused to provide wedding cakes to gay customers and the false claim that one of the bakeries had been slapped with a gag order, Fischer claims that their First Amendment rights are being violated (emphasis added):

Readers are by now familiar with Aaron and Melissa Klein, who were fined $135,000 by a bureaucrat (no trial by jury, no judge, no right to confront accusers in open court, etc.) for politely declining to violate their own Christian conscience in the conduct of their business.

To add constitutional insult to constitutional injury, this bureaucrat slapped a gag order on the Kleins so they are not allowed even to talk to anybody about this travesty. Their right to the free exercise of religion, gone. Their right to free speech, gone. Their right to free association, gone.

In other words, this bureaucrat just issued a binding decree that the First Amendment applies to everybody in America except Christians. Christians, according to this man, have no First Amendment rights of any kind.

A baker in Colorado, Jack Phillips, is going to court today for similarly declining to use his expressive gifts to bake a cake which included a message of support for same-sex marriage. For his effrontery, having the nerve to actually believe the First Amendment applied to him, he too has been fined, ordered to bake cakes that violate his conscience, sent to re-education camp, and ordered to provide quarterly “compliance reports” to show that he is sufficiently servile to the lords of political correctness.

As we have pointed out before, it is Fischer who insists that "violating the First Amendment is something only Congress can do." Needless to say, neither of these cases has anything to do with Congress so, by Fischer's own logic, nobody's First Amendment rights are being violated since that "is something only Congress can do."

How Fischer repeatedly fails to understand the basic fact that he cannot claim that the First Amendment can only be violated by Congress and then turn around and also complain that the First Amendment is being violated by things that are not Congress is beyond comprehension.
