Right Wing Leftovers - 2/11/13

  • Pope Benedict XVI abruptly announced that he will resign at the end of the month, so we can probably expect to see a lot of Bill Donohue on the television in the coming weeks.
  • We are pretty sure that if something like this happened to someone who spoke out against gay marriage, the Religious Right would fly into a rage.
  • AFA's OneNewsNow will soon become Instant Analysis.
  • Matt Barber continues his crusade against the Southern Poverty Law Center.
  • It turns out that there are several good reasons to impeach President Obama.
  • Finally, Apostle/city council member Kimberly Daniels prays for President Obama: "Lord, expose the work of every witch, sorcerer, spiritualist or person from the dark side operating through his cabinet members or through anyone else closely associated with him. We block the power of the influence of the Yorùbá religion and all other groups of black people who worship their ancestors, in Jesus' name. We put barriers around the United States that will bind and block the witchcraft coming from Kenya to influence our president in Jesus' name. Let the power of every dedication of his past be broken, in Jesus' name."

Barber & Staver: When the Constitution was Written, Homosexuality was a 'Crime Against Nature' Punishable by Death

Mat Staver and Matt Barber were discussing the two amicus briefs that Liberty Counsel has filed with the Supreme Court for the hearings on the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8, claiming that it is "absurd" to think that the Constitution guarantees any right to same-sex marriage because at the time the Constitution was written, homosexuality was widely considered to be a "crime against nature."

As Barber explained, "the aberrant sexual behavior, the twisting of normal human sexuality that would be involved in order to consummate a so-called same-sex marriage" carried a punishment of death at the time the Constitution was written, so "there is now way that they would have ever intended that they would twist and deconstruct the fundamental cornerstone institution of marriage in order to put the government's official stamp of approval on a crime against nature":

Glenn Beck Will Save the 4th of July by Talking to The 'Man in the Moon' in Utah

For several weeks now, Glenn Beck has been talking about his grandiose plans to "change the way we celebrate Fourth of July" so that people no longer sit around drinking beer, watching fireworks, and listening to anti-Americans songs written by Bruce Springsteen.

And he is going to do it by putting on a spectacular live show in which the American story is told by someone "who knows the story of America better than anybody else ... The Man in the Moon."  And, shockingly, Beck has decided that the place best-suited to hosting this groundbreaking, holiday-changing performance is none other than Salt Lake City, Utah:

Fischer: Every 'Secular Fundamentalist' Is an Antichrist

On Friday, Bryan Fischer proclaimed that President Obama is "an antichrist" because of his positions on marriage equality and reproductive choice. And as he explained on his Facebook page over the weekend, it is not only Obama who is "an antichrist" because everybody who does not share Fischer's rabidly right-wing views is one as well:

Christ is for religious liberty, babies in the womb and natural marriage. We can say without equivocation that Christ is for liberty (2 Corinthians 3:17), that he is unequivocally opposed to the dismembering of children in the womb (Ps. 139:13-16), and that he is for marriage as the union of one man and one woman (Matt. 19:5-6).

Whoever is against religious liberty, the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage has therefore set himself against Christ and is working against the purposes of Christ in the world. This makes him an "antichrist" (1 Jn 2:18), even if he is the president of the United States.

President Obama has made it clear through his abortifacient mandate in ObamaCare that he is against religious liberty. He is zealous to protect the practice of abortion, and even supported infanticide as an Illinois state senator. Thus he is opposed to the sanctity of human life. And he is an open supporter of sodomy-based marriage, which means he is opposed to the sanctity of marriage.

Thus Barack Obama is not the antichrist, but he is certainly an antichrist, along with every other secular fundamentalist who opposes the values of Christ in the public and private life of our nation. This is not an irrational rant but rather a simple statement of fact.

The left is fond of using the "anti" word to describe their opponents: anti-union, anti-abortion, anti-gay. They thus have no reason to complain if someone borrows back this perfectly good word from them and accurately applies it to opponents of the will of God, even if it is applied to someone for whom they have a messianic adoration. If someone strenuously objects to this characterization of the president, perhaps it is because he too is working against Christ and his purposes.

John Guandolo: CIA Nominee John Brennan Converted to Islam

Once upon a time, John Guandolo was an FBI agent until he was supposedly forced out after the Bureau was taken over by those with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  Since then, he has gone on to become a full-time anti-Islam activist of high-regard among the Right. 

The fact that Guandolo - while working on the corruption case against former Rep. William Jefferson, engaged in a sexual relationship with a key witness and resigned before he could be questioned about it - seems to have, in no way, damaged his credibility, which is why WND is reporting Guandolo's latest claim that John Brennan, President Obama's nominee to head the CIA, converted to Islam when he served in Saudi Arabia as the "culmination of a counterintelligence operation against him to recruit him":

“Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam when he served in an official capacity on the behalf of the United States in Saudi Arabia,” Guandolo told interviewer and radio host Tom Trento.

“That fact alone is not what is most disturbing,” Guandolo continued. “His conversion to Islam was the culmination of a counterintelligence operation against him to recruit him. The fact that foreign intelligence service operatives recruited Mr. Brennan when he was in a very sensitive and senior U.S. government position in a foreign country means that he either a traitor … [or] he has the inability to discern and understand how to walk in those kinds of environments, which makes him completely unfit to the be the director of Central Intelligence.”

Right Wing Round-Up - 2/9/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 2/9/13

  • Cindy Jacobs explains how she became a "respected prophet."
  • This is apparently a real thing: "11-Year-Old Ordained Minister is America's Next Superstar Evangelist."
  • Unfortunately for us, Fox News' resident quack psychiatrist Keith Ablow will not run for the vacant senate seat in Massachusetts.
  • Rep. Randy Forbes is very worried about "America’s new government-imposed religion," by which he means conservative Christians not getting their way on everything.
  • Finally, the Family Research Council cannot possibly be a hate group because someone who interned there says they are "the most delightful, friendly, sweet, loving, caring, and Christ-like people you will ever meet."

Fischer: Obama Is an Antichrist

Earlier today, we posted a clip of Bryan Fischer attacking President Obama for supposedly being "filled with arrogance" pride and hubris for believing that he knows better than God when it comes to issues like reproductive choice and marriage equality.

On his program today, Fischer returned to the issue, this time declaring that Obama is an antichrist:

Fischer: Interfaith Services Offer Prayers to 'Counterfeit Gods'

A pastor from a conservative Lutheran church in Connecticut has been reprimanded by his synod for participating in the interfaith memorial service following the Sandy Hook massacre that featured President Obama because his participation gave the impression that worship among various faiths was acceptable.

And Bryan Fischer cheers, because Christians are not to be "yoked with unbelievers" and cannot participate in any event that might involve "prayers and worship to counterfeit gods":

Something worth keeping in mind the next time a presidential candidate like Rick Perry teams up with the AFA for a public prayer event.

Glenn Beck and his Chalkboard Explain America

Glenn Beck is now a full-fledged libertarian who is through with the Republican Party and is calling for the formation of a third party.

Last night on his television program, Beck explained the need for this libertarian third party by hauling out his trusty chalkboard and demonstrating that he, like the vast majority of Americans, is really a moderate ... by which he means, a Tea Party conservative for whom the GOP is way too liberal:
