Beck: 'It's All About Hidden Clues'

For Glenn Beck, nothing is ever what is seems and so when President Obama travels to Israel, it cannot be because that is just the sort of thing that presidents do, but rather because there is some nefarious agenda at work.

As Beck sees it, Obama already won the election and has no intention of changing any of his positions on issues pertaining to Israel or the region, so there is no reason for him to travel there ... but he did, and so there must be a hidden reason.

Beck found that hidden reason in a piece that suggests that Obama's visit there is designed to strengthen the Muslim Brotherhood and undermine Israel, as he and Rabbi Daniel Lapin agreed that the fact that Obama will not be speaking to the Knesset "conveys a message in terms of hidden clues throughout the Arab Street [that] Obama does not recognize the political and democratic legitimacy of the Israeli government":

Right Wing Leftovers - 3/20/13

  • LiveAction bizarrely claims that Steven Crowder's Ashley Judd rape joke at CPAC "never happened." 
  • Matt Barber blasts Pastor Rob Bell's "apostasy" for supporting marriage equality.
  • Bryan Fischer says "same-sex 'marriage' fails to satisfy even the companionship purpose for this most sacred of relationships."
  • Keep in mind that no matter how crazy Glenn Beck gets, Sen. Rand Paul will continue to regularly appear on his program.
  • And so will Gov. Rick Perry.

Jerry Boykin on Sexual Attraction, Emotional Vulnerability, and Women in Combat

The Family Research Council's Jerry Boykin joined Tim Wildmon and Ed Vitagliano on today's radio broadcast to explain why he opposes the decision to allow female soldiers to serve in front-line combat, saying that allowing women to serve changes the dynamic of the unit because "God placed in us, as men, a protective nature when it comes to the female."

On top of that, these combat units will now have to deal with the issue of possible sexual attraction, which Boykin warned would become very complicated in times when there has been a loss of life and the soldiers become emotional and in need of solace and you can just "imagine what that can turn into in those conditions, in those circumstances, when you have mixed gender":

Hagee: Sodom and Gomorrah Was God's 'Pilot Study' for Dealing with 'the Homosexual Society'

On this week's "Hagee Hotline," Pastor John Hagee responded to a question from a viewer about whether God would hold this nation accountable if it ever legalized gay marriage by declaring that biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah was "God's pilot study for his response to the homosexual society," and warning that it was not a matter of the government approving it but rather "if the people accept it, and if the righteous accept it, judgment will come":

Beck: 'Cyprus Is The Answer'

Glenn Beck inhabits a world where everything that happens is part of a massive global conspiracy that only he can understand and he sees it as his duty to use his television program to explain how everything that is happening everywhere in the world at any given moment is all a part of this grand conspiracy, which leads to episodes like the one that aired last night in which he explained how New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's fight against sugary drinks, efforts to pass gun control legislation, and efforts to decriminalize marijuana are all related to the financial crisis taking place in Cyprus ...which will eventually lead to the resurgence of Nazis.

Behold:

Right Wing Leftovers - 3/19/13

  • Happy 10th anniversary of the start of the Iraq war.
  • Samuel Rodriguez's support for gun control measures will probably not sit well with his allies in the Religious Right.
  • Glenn Beck continues to blame video games for the massacre in Newtown.
  • The Right's argument that prohibiting gay marriage is not discriminatory is really getting old: "Those who choose not to enter into a male-female union—whether because of their sexual orientation, or from any other reason—are not being denied the 'right' to marry. They are, like those who choose celibacy, singleness, cohabitation, or polyamory, simply choosing not to marry—that is, choosing not to enter the type of relationship that is rationally defined as a 'marriage.'”
  • Janet Mefferd rips the GOP: "I've never seen such cowardice and apathy. All these politicians who've given up on the issue of marriage really, truly disgust me."
  • Finally, Liberty Counsel is making a feature film about religious liberty that is going to star Erik Estrada. We are at a loss for words.

Fischer: 'Smart People Are Conservative'

Yesterday, Bryan Fischer blasted those in the Republican Party who think that the party's hostility to gay rights is turning off young voters, saying it was "idiotic" for the GOP to "pander" to the "least mature, least intelligent, least informed, least experienced, least educated members of our movement."

He returned to the topic today, reiterating his view that it makes no sense to moderate the GOP's message in order to appeal to young people because young voters eventually become more conservative as they get older.

"When they mature, when they gain more life experience, when they gain more judgment," Fischer explained, "they become what? They become more conservative because that's what smart people are; smart people are conservative":

Beisner Explains Why Environmentalism Represents the 'Greatest Threat to Western Civilization'

Yesterday, Dr. Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance appeared on Janet Mefferd's radio program where he explained that the modern environmental movement represents "the greatest threat to Western civilization" because it combines "the utopian vision of Marxism, the scientific facade of secular humanism, and the religious fanaticism of jihad" into a pseudo-religion that undermines Christianity:

Mefferd: That seems like, maybe to some people, like hyperbole Dr. Beisner, but why do you think that that's the case?

Beisner: Well, let me just give you four simple, direct reasons.

First, because unlike the Soviet Union and its satellites in the Cold War and unlike Islamic jihad today which were, or are, external and clearly recognized as enemies by the overwhelming majority of people in the free world, environmentalism is internal and thought by most to be friend, not foe.

Second, because unlike arid and nihilistic secular humanism, environmentalism speaks to the inherent spiritual yearnings of human souls and it provides plausible answers to dogged questions about how we got here and what causes suffering and how suffering might come to an end.

Third, because environmentalism incorporates the strengths of all three of those other threats: the utopian vision of Marxism, the scientific facade of secular humanism, and the religious fanaticism of jihad.

And fourth, finally, because environmentalism encompasses all the vague spiritualities that have frankly overwhelmed secular humanism in the West and now threaten the Christian faith as so many people now take to referring to themselves as "oh well, I'm spiritual but not religious," which basically means they are all involved in designer religion.
