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":

Right Wing Round-Up - 5/22/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/22/13

  • It is a battle of crazed conspiracy theorists as Rick Wiles goes after Alex Jones.
  • Anti-gay activists are accusing the Boy Scouts of trying to rig the voting in favor of changing the organization's anti-gay policy (Of course, nobody should really trust what Cathy Ruse claims in the first place.)
  • Gary Cass has written a book titled "The Bizarre Sex Life of Mohammed."
  • Is 'Coach' Dave Daubenmire capable of making a video where he doesn't scream the entire time?
  • Bryan Fischer runs down a list of terms that GLAAD believes are offensive and says that anti-gay activists ought to be sure to use them.
  • Finally, anti-gay activist Brad Dacus has apologized for saying, back in 2008, that failing to pass Proposition 8 was like failing to stop the Nazis:

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":

E.W. Jackson: Homosexuality Is an 'Abomination in the Sight of God'

Last fall, E.W. Jackson delivered a sermon at Clover Hill Assembly of God in Midlothian, VA during which he told the congregation that Christians must repent for being "sinfully complacent" by supporting political candidates who tolerate or promote "that which violates God's word and everything upon which this nation was built."

"How dare we,' Jackson fumed, "put party over the word of God ... How dare we put our race over the word of God. Nobody will ever convince me that because I'm black, I have a responsibility to vote for a candidate who will stand up on his hind feet and say 'I believe we ought to admire same-sex marriage and I'm in favor of same-sex marriage' when the Bible says that homosexuality is a sin in the sight of God and an abomination in the sight of God. I will not support anybody who would do such a thing":

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/21/13

  • Dozens of anti-gay activists and religious leaders have signed on to a letter calling upon the Boy Scouts to reject the proposed change to the policy banning gay scouts.
  • Those opposed to the proposed change are complaining that they are not getting enough support from Christians, with Religious Right activist David Lane lamenting that "there’s no lobby more vicious than the homosexual lobby, and the 65 to 80 million-member evangelical constituency provides no troops for the fight against that lobby."
  • Peter LaBarbera is calling on "Christian and conservative philanthropists and patriotic corporations to step up to the plate" and pledge to support the Boy Scouts financially if the organization loses donations by maintaining the ban.
  • Similarly, Bryan Fischer warns that "if sodomy is normalized in the Boy Scouts of America, it not only will be a death sentence for the Scouts who get seduced into homosexuality, it will be the end of scouting in the United States."
  • A right-wing anti-gay French activist killed himself inside of Notre Dame cathedral in protest against the legalization of gay marriage in the country.
  • Finally, Ken Cuccinelli says he is glad that E.W. Jackson is on the GOP ticket.
