Dozens of Anti-Gay Activists Vow to Resist Any SCOTUS Ruling In Favor of Marriage Equality

As the nation awaits the Supreme Court's rulings on two high-profile marriage equality cases, several dozen Religious Right activists have signed on to a "Marriage Solidarity Statement" that was drafted by Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Deacon Keith Fournier, vowing to resist any ruling in favor of equality.

This who's who of anti-gay activists has collectively declared that they "will not stand by while the destruction of the institution of marriage unfolds in this nation we love" because "this is the line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross":

As Christian citizens united together, we will not stand by while the destruction of the institution of marriage unfolds in this nation we love. The Sacred Scriptures and unbroken teaching of the Church confirm that marriage is between one man and one woman. We stand together in solidarity to defend marriage and the family and society founded upon them. The effort to redefine marriage threatens the proper mediating role of the Church in society.

Experience and history have shown us that if the government redefines marriage to grant a legal equivalency to same-sex couples, that same government will then enforce such an action with the police power of the State. This will bring about an inevitable collision with religious freedom and conscience rights. We cannot and will not allow this to occur on our watch. Religious freedom is the first freedom in the American experiment for good reason.

...

If the Supreme Court were to issue a decision that redefined marriage or provided a precedent on which to build an argument to redefine marriage, the Supreme Court will thereby undermine its legitimacy. The Court will significantly decrease its credibility and impair the role it has assumed for itself as a moral authority. It will be acting beyond its proper constitutional role and contrary to the Natural Moral Law which transcends religions, culture, and time.

As Christians united together in defense of marriage, we pray that this will not happen. But, make no mistake about our resolve. While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the true common good that this is the line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross.

Considering that Staver and others who signed this declaration have predicted that any ruling in favor of gay marriage will lead to civil war, one has to wonder just how these anti-gay activists intend to resist any such ruling.

Harvey: Gay Marriage Will Lead to a Generation Of 'Barbarians'

Mission America's Linda Harvey was a guest on AFA's "Today's Issues" radio program this morning, where she discussed the dangers of marriage equality.

As Harvey explained it, if gay marriage ever becomes accepted at part of the culture norm, it will fundamentally warp the worldview of children who will grow up thinking that it is okay to marry someone of the same sex. And if that ever happens, "it will revolutionize the psychology and spiritual development" of children by removing the fundamental "security level" that all previous generations understood.

"It's going to mess with their hearts, their minds, their spirits, and their bodies," Harvey warned. "I think that we are looking toward; I don't know that this is, maybe it's too strong a word, but raising barbarians":

Rick Wiles, Demon-Possessed MSNBC Viewers, and the Coming Christian Holocaust

On Tuesday evening's broadcast of "The Rachel Maddow Show," several of the clips we have posted from End Times radio host Rick Wiles were aired during a segment about the radical views held by various Republican congressional leaders.

For his part, Wiles was unaware that he had been featured on the program until he checked his email and voice-mail on Wednesday morning and found himself under an avalanche of messages attacking for the insane things that he has said.  And as he explained on his radio program yesterday, the messages he received could only have come from "people who are demon-possessed" and serve as further proof that an anti-Christian holocaust is coming to America:

I discovered that MSNBC's socialist news commentator Rachel Maddow played a soundbite of me on her program last night.  Thank you, Rachel.  I appreciate the publicity even though there aren't that many people watching MSNBC, but I'll take all the publicity I can get.

The people who do watch it, however, have a visceral hate for Jesus Christ and Christians.  In fifteen years of full-time ministry, I have never read or heard such ugly, hateful, threatening, vulgar, obscene, blasphemous messages in my life. Ever. I won't even repeat them because some of the things that they said about our lord and savior Jesus Christ is so vulgar, so blasphemous, that it only could be uttered by people who are demon-possessed.

The spirit of Antichrist is loose in America. A man of lawlessness is in the White House. His followers hate Christianity.  And most of the American Christian church has yet to realize the scope and depth of this hellish hate that is boiling in the Obamanistas towards anybody who dares to profess biblical Christianity and morality. 

It is the same spirit that rose up in the Nazis in Germany towards the Jews. This time it will be the Christians in America who are locked up or put to death.

Beck: The Tea Party Is the New Civil Rights Movement

For the last several week, Glenn Beck has been hammering away at the theme that Tea Party activists must become the new leaders of civil rights movement because they are being discriminated against, persecuted, and denied equal protection under the law by a biased and corrupt government. And he is entirely serious, claiming that even while they are becoming the victims of KKK-like intimidation, they will eventually be the force that saves this nation.

Yesterday, Beck flew to Washington, DC for the anti-IRS/anti-immigration Tea Party rally outside the Capitol where, as he explained on his television program last night, he delivered a speech explaining to the audience that "this is a civil rights movement; you may not understand it now, but believe me, you will."

Calling upon the Tea Party to "start moving as a civil rights movement," Beck announced that he is going to be working with Alveda King, the anti-gay, anti-abortion Religious Right activist niece of Martin Luther King, who will start teaching "classes that model exactly what her uncle Martin taught her to do."

"We have to be willing to have the dogs be unleashed on us," Beck declared, because "after what I saw today on the way they're handling things at the Capitol, you're not very far from having the same kind of oppression coming our way":

Glenn Beck Is Luring Christians Into Islamo-Mormon Deistic Universalism

Yesterday's TruNews radio broadcast with Rick Wiles was entirely dedicated to an interview with right-wing anti-Islam activist Walid Shoebat and his son Theodore during which the three of them attacked ... Glenn Beck!

That's right, according to the Shoebats, Beck is a practitioner of "Chrislam," meaning that he is luring his audience away from true Christianity and into a dangerous Islamo-Mormon deistic universalism with the help of Religious Right leaders such as James Robison, Franklin Graham, and David Barton.

As Theodore explained, Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, considered himself to be a second Muhammad, which is why, Walid said, LDS members will not proselytize to Muslims since "basically they have the same faith":

Walid Shoebat: Glenn Beck isn't really calling for Christianity. He lies when he says 'I'm a Christian, I believe in salvation through Jesus Christ' because he, number one, denies the Trinity; number two, he's a deist. In other words, he believes Muslims and Mormons and all the cults together, Buddhists,  believe in God and everybody should conform to this deistic view in belief in God.  Why? Because we have a more important thing to deal with and that is the salvation of the country as a nation.

Theodore Shoebat: Why is Glenn Beck so fascinated with universalism? Why does he keep pushing universalism? Because it is part of his religion.  People need to understand this about Mormonism.  Mormonism is an extreme version of Chrislam.  Joseph Smith observed the most extreme form of Islam you could ever imagine.  In 1855, the earliest leaders of Mormonism, of the Latter-Day Saints, got together specifically to exalt  the Prophet Muhammad.  Joseph Smith stated that Muhammad was a prophet of god and that Muhammad suffered just as I have suffered; he paralleled himself to Muhammad.  And in a very famous speech he made, the speech called 'Al-Koran or The Sword,' Joseph Smith stated 'in this generation, I will be the second Muhammad. Where it was in his generation the Koran or the sword,  it will be in this generation Joseph Smith or the sword.'

Walid Shoebat: The Latter-Day Saints church has sought to respect Islamic laws, that is sharia - that's the thing that Glenn Beck claims to be fighting - and traditions that prohibit conversions of Muslims to other faiths by adopting a policy of non-proselytizing in Islamic countries in the Middle East.  In other words, Mormons are not allowed to proselytize to Muslims in the Middle East.  Why? Because basically they have the same faith.

Beck: 'God Is Openly Mocked' by Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian, & Anthony Weiner

Glenn Beck dedicated most of the opening monologue on his television program last night to continuing to warn against any US involvement in Syria, which inevitably led him to his giant blackboard so that he could provide another history lesson about how everything that happened leading up to World War II was rooted in hostility toward religion ... and it is happening again today, not only in Europe but in America as well.

"God is openly mocked," Beck declared, "and hedonism and darkness is being embraced" as he highlighted Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian, and Anthony Weiner as evidence.

"Quite honestly America, those are the easy ones," he said, "but if you just scratch just below the surface, you and I both know evil is running amok in our country and all over the globe":

Fischer: Liberals Support Immigration Because Conservatives are Outbreeding Them

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer explained that liberals support immigration reform because they are being out-bred by conservatives and so "ten, twenty years down the road, they're just going to be outnumbered."

"We are breeding our own voters," Fischer said of conservatives, whereas liberals "have got to import them ... so that's why they're so enamored with illegal aliens and amnesty for them is they've got to find some way to get these people on the voter rolls to just maintain numerical parity with conservatives":
