Barber & Crampton: Federal Marriage Amendment Needed To Stop The 'Homosexualist Juggernaut'

Generally when the Religious Right likens its own efforts to William Wilberforce's crusade to end slavery, they do so when discussing the topic of abortion, but apparently it applies to their fight against marriage equality as well.

In the wake of the Supreme Court's rulings on DOMA and Prop 8, Rep. Tim Huelskamp has introduced a constitutional amendment seeking to ban gay marriage and while Matt Barber and Steve Crampton both realize has no chance of passing, they are going to continue to push for it and stick with it just like Wilberforce did because eventually Christians will realize that their "religious freedom [is] being crushed by the homosexualist juggernaut":

Rafael Cruz: The Declaration And Constitution Were 'Divine Revelation From God'

We were aware that Sen. Ted Cruz's father, Rafael, has become something of a right-wing speaker in the wake of his son's election to the Senate, but we did not realize that the elder Cruz is a full-blown Religious Right activist until we watched the speech he delivered at a recent “America in Distress” rally where he spoke alongside the likes of Louie Gohmert, Rick Scarborough, and other Religious Right/Tea Party activists.

Cruz delivered a nearly twenty minute speech that was chock-full of standard Religious Right attacks on everything from abortion to the IRS all while he quoted Bible verses and called upon Christians to vote "for Christian principles, for biblical principles" in order "take every position and office from dog catcher all the way to the highest position in the land."

Cruz closed by declaring that "outside of the Bible," the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were the most important documents that had ever been written.

"And the reason is," Cruz explained, "they were written on the knees of the Framers.  The Framers were seeking divine revelation from God, that's why the Declaration and the Constitution have lasted over 230 years because they were divine revelation from God":

Right Wing Leftovers - 7/15/13

  • Once again, Alveda King demonstrates that she is incapable of discussing any topic without tying it back to the issue of abortion.
  • According to his Twitter account, Erik Rush appeared on Mike Huckabee's television program last yet, which is just further proof that no conservative activist will be shunned by the movement, no matter how radical.
  • Peter Sprigg is not happy that Fuller Theological Seminary has approved a LGBT group and feels the school "should instead be teaching reorientation as the students' best option."
  • "Coach" Dave says he'll know that Christians are truly serious about saving the institution of marriage when they make divorce illegal.
  • Jerome Corsi says that Mitt Romney lost the election because the media kept mentioning his Mormon faith but "neglected to mention the polygamy at the heart of Barack Obama’s life story."
  • Finally, Rick Wiles dares us to post this clip of him declaring that President Obama is a Saudi intelligence agent.  We accept that dare:

Gohmert: 'How Does The Mating Of Two Males Evolve The Species Upwards?'

Earlier this month, Louie Gohmert spoke at an "America in Distress" Tea Party rally in Dallas, Texas where, after thrilling his audience by reading them a Peggy Noonan column, he got down to business by addressing the important questions ... like wanting to know how the mating of two males "evolves the species upwards?"

Alleging that the Obama administration was attacking Christianity by threatening to prosecute those who believe that homosexuality is wrong with hate crimes laws, Gohmert wanted to know how "someone who believes in evolution ... that throughout the history of the universe, and particularly Earth, that people have come together and born an offspring from different species that has evolved and given us stronger and better species, how does the mating of two males evolve the species upwards?"

As for the idea of Christians being charged with hate crimes for opposing equality, it was ludicrous Gohmert said because "we're not haters as Christians; we're lovers":

Barber & Crampton: 'The Life Of The Average Homosexual Is Not Controlled By Reason'

A few weeks ago, an anti-gay activist was attacked while protesting a gay pride festival in Seattle by a straight man with a long criminal record and Matt Barber and Steve Crampton are not the least bit surprised because, well, what else can you expect from those who have been given over to a "reprobate mind."

Crampton and Barber warned that these sorts of attacks on anti-gay Christians will only increase in the months and years ahead because, as Crampton explained, "the life of the average homosexual is not controlled by reason" but a perverted lust and passion that has "overwhelmed them." And thus, when you couple that "a lack of self-control" with "the taste of blood," you have a recipe for further bloodletting.

Barber agreed, declaring that gays "define their entire identity based up aberrant sexual behaviors and sexual temptations and acting on those temptations" and so, as Scripture proclaims, they are eventually consumed by this "lust-filled, sex-centric, perversion-centric lifestyle" and ultimately driven by a "dark soul" to commit this sort of violent behavior:

Gohmert: Stopping Immigration Reform Will Make Hispanics Realize 'These Republicans Really Like Me'

Along with Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert recently sat down with WND to make the Tea Party case against any sort of immigration reform legislation.  And while Bachmann warned that passage of any legislation would spell the end for the Republican Party in Congress, Gohmert predicted that not passing reform legislation would help the GOP in the long run by demonstrating to Hispanic voters that the party really cares about them.

Claiming that just as Black voters are embracing the Republican Party, Gohmert said that Hispanic voters will do likewise once they understand that the GOP wants them to learn to speak English and assimilate so that they don't have to work as ditch diggers.

"In the long term," Gohmert said, "I think you will see people start waking up and go 'wow, I'm Hispanic and these Republicans really like me ... wow, this Republican really does want me to do well. That's the party I ought to be in!":

Bachmann: Congress Needs To 'Spank The President' And Take Away His Magic Wand

Reps. Michele Bachmann, Steve King, and Louie Gohmert continue their crusade to prevent the passage of any immigration reform legislation by mobilizing the readers of WorldNetDaily with a new article today featuring interviews with each one of them.

In making her case against immigration reform, Bachmann warned that Republicans will lose control of the House of Representatives if any legislation passes because President Obama will "wave his magic wand before 2014" and declare that all immigrants have the right to vote, just as he supposedly did in 2012 when he supposedly declared that anyone here under the age of 30 was allowed to vote which, of course, happened only in Bachmann's fevered imagination.

Claiming that she is "not crying wolf here," Bachmann went on to say that Congress need to give Obama a spanking and take that magic wand out of his hands:
