Anti-Gay Zealot 'Coach' Dave Daubenmire Interviews Chief Justice Roy Moore

Despite having been removed from his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court back in 2003 for refusing to remove a massive monument of the Ten Commandment from the court house, Roy Moore was re-elected to that very position last year.

And though Moore has long been little more than a Religious Right activist clad in judicial robes, it was still kind of surprising to see the sitting Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court join someone like "Coach" Dave Daubenmire for a half-hour interview on Daubenmire's "News With Views" program.

In recent weeks, Daubenmire has demanded that President Obama admit that he is gay and ranted about men having "butt sex with other men," so of course he and Moore, who believes that Satan is out to destroy the institution of marriage, spent time complaining about the push for marriage equality and efforts by the government to promote things that contradict the laws of God, warning that once God's standards are abandoned, everything from sodomy to bestiality to incest will become acceptable:

Fischer Flashback: Chances of BSA Voting to End the Ban on Gay Scouts is 'Nonexistent'

Back in February, the Boy Scouts of America’s National Executive Board was entertaining the idea of ending the organization's ban on gay scouts but after an outcry of opposition by anti-gay activists, decided to postpone the decision and instead put it to a vote, allowing the members of the National Council to decide the question at the National Annual Meeting in May 2013.

Last night, that vote was taken and the decision to end the ban passed with over 60% of the vote.

It must be awkward for Bryan Fischer who, back in February when the decision to put it to a vote was made, rejoiced over the fact that now the resolution would never pass.

"The chances that this 1,400 National Council is going to remove the ban on homosexuality," Fischer guaranteed, "is nonexistent.  It does not exist.  It's infinitesimal. It is off the charts in remoteness. So in other words, ladies and gentlemen, this decision today means that the ban on homosexual scout masters and homosexual participants, that ban is going to be upheld. It's going to be defended. It's going to be in place. It's not going anywhere. It's not going to be changed. Sodomy is not going to be normalized in the Boy Scouts of America.  It's the end of the game.  This is game over.  This is the Super Bowl and the good guys have won.  Make no mistake about this, this is a huge win for the pro-family movement; it is a big, big, big setback for Big Gay":

Hagee: Healing In Jesus' Name 'Works Every Time'

On this week's "Hagee Hotline," Matthew Hagee received a question from a viewer about why healing in Jesus' name doesn't always work.  Hagee replied that, in fact, "healing works every time" but simply manifests itself in different forms.

There are some times when a person is instantaneously healed in Jesus' name and other times when they are healed over a longer period of weeks or months ... and then sometimes the person actually dies "but that does not mean they're not healed."

"The Bible says," Hagee explained, "that when we get into presence of God that every sickness, every infirmity, and every kind of weakness is gone, which is an absolute and total healing":

Beck: CNN Interview With Atheist Tornado Survivor Was a Set-Up

On last night's program, while discussing relief efforts in Oklahoma, Glenn Beck challenged faith leaders to step up and put their faith into action, urging them to ask themselves "what have I done that atheists can't or won't?"

Of course, atheists can do pretty much anything that believers can do (except maybe bring people back from the dead or stop tornadoes) but Beck was saying that people of faith need to make their light shine in a way that atheists can't. 

In particular, Beck cited an interview between CNN's Wolf Blitzer and a survivor of the Oklahoma tornado who turned out to be an atheist ... which Beck is convinced was a set-up by a CNN producer who wanted to promote atheism "or just doesn't like Christians."

"We are not fighting against flesh and bone," Beck said. "We are fighting the forces of spiritual darkness and it doesn't matter what people's intent are, but I will tell you that that was there for a reason":

Beck: 'The American People Have Just Been Raped; Why Are You Asking the Rapist to Hurry Up With the Swab Test?'

Glenn Beck spent much of today's radio broadcast talking about the IRS scandal, which eventually merged with his apparent belief that there is some sort of all-encompassing government surveillance apparatus in operation that records literally every email, phone conversation, and electronic communication and stores them all in a massive database in Utah.

As such, Beck wants to know why Congress is even bothering holding hearings or launching investigations when all they have to do is go and get the records from that database and find out exactly what happened on everything from the IRS to Benghazi.

"America, it is time we turned the security state against itself," Beck said. "Why ask for it?  Just go into the system that we paid for and you built for our quote 'protection.' You want to find it? Why are you waiting? The more you wait, the more time they have to delete.  Go in and get it.  You have it.  Or is that security system you've built for our protection not really for our protection?  The American people have just been raped; why are you asking the rapist to hurry up with the swab test?"

Barber: Unlike Nixon, Obama & Clinton Don't Have the 'Character' to Resign for the 'Vicious, Horrible Cover-Up' of Benghazi

For some reason, Matt Barber and Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel have decided to take some time away from their normal anti-gay activism to weigh in on Benghazi by delivering petitions demanding a Congressional investigation into the attacks.

Why such an investigation would even be necessary is beyond us, since Barber has already made up his mind and decided that the entire thing is "Watergate on steroids." But unlike Richard Nixon, Barber said, neither President Obama nor Hillary Clinton have the dignity or "character" to "recognize that it is over" and resign for office for the role they supposedly played in this "vicious, horrible cover-up":
