Right Wing Leftovers - 4/16/13

  • Erik Rush is not backing down from the controversy he set off yesterday, declaring that "this army of dhimmi idiots reeeeally isn't doing much to convince me I was wrong about anything here..."
  • Pat Buchanan says that civil disobedience may be the only option if the Supreme Court rules in favor of marriage equality.
  • If someone was booted from their band like this for opposing gay marriage, the Religious Right would be railing about it for weeks.
  • Rick Joyner warns that "without another Great Awakening, we will not survive as a Republic much longer."
  • Finally, Matt Barber continues to demonstrate that he is one of the most offensive and bigoted anti-gay activists operating today: "Most homosexuals know intuitively, I think, that their lifestyle is unnatural and immoral and that the oxymoronic notion of 'same-sex marriage' is a silly farce. Thus, they must force others to affirm both their self-destructive lifestyle and their mock 'marriages' under penalty of law. They must physically compel everyone to engage their “emperor’s new clothes” delusion, so they can feel better about bad behavior. Well, my friend, making everyone else 'call evil good and good evil' won’t fill that dark void in your soul."

Barton: Instead of Passing Obamacare, Congress Should Have Called on People 'to be More Religious'

On "WallBuilders Live" today, Rick Green and David Barton interviewed Frank Newport, author of the book "God Is Alive and Well: The Future of Religion in America."

Following the discussion, Barton commented that the problem in America today is that while the vast majority of people consider themselves to be Christians, not enough are reading the Bible regularly and applying it to their daily lives.

After comparing the Bible to an owner's manual for a car, Barton said that "the more religious you are, the better your health is" and suggested that instead of passing health care reform legislation, Congress should have passed legislation "calling on people to be more religious":

Part of the problem we have is we've not shown then applicability. It's like saying "why don't you sit down and read the owner's manual for your car."  They say "no way, if I need something, I'll go there and get it" and so we wait until we think there's a need but actually, if you read it ahead of time, you'll find there's a ton of stuff that applies before you get there. You'll find when you read it that there's a whole lot more features on your car than you knew about that helped you maximize ... and so we have that same kind of mental hurdle to get over.  People think, man, if I get in a crisis, I'll go get this and read it.  No, no, no, read it before you get in a crisis because it is going to apply to stuff you don't even imagine right now and it will elevate and benefit your life.

And by the way, I thought it was really cool that he pointed out that the more religious your are, the better your health is. Now, instead of passing Obamacare, why didn't we pass a bill calling on people to be more religious and therefore help health over all?

That's the benefits of using God's word and applying God's word is it does provide tangible, measurable benefits not the least of which is health.

Staver: Labeling Us As 'Hate Groups' Is Just Like What Happened in Nazi Germany

On a recent "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Matt Barber and Mat Staver were discussing the current Religious Right outrage over an Army Reserve briefing in which "Evangelical Christianity" was listed among various kinds of "religious extremism."

A spokesperson said the slide was not produced by the Army and was removed and the person responsible for it has apologized, but Staver and Barber know who is really to blame: the Southern Poverty Law Center.

In fact, Staver said, what the SPLC is doing by labeling Religious Right organization as hate groups "it's just like in Nazi Germany" where Jews were dehumanized and demonized so that when they were ultimately killed, "people turned a blind eye":

Beck: Muslims Responsible for Boston Bombing Because American Terrorists Always Target the Government

Last night, Glenn Beck went on the air shortly after the bombing at the Boston Marathon happened and even though very little was known at the time, Beck understandably felt obligated to cover it

It was fascinating to watch the reporters who actually work for The Blaze try to do their job of reporting what is actually known while answering questions from Beck, who is under no such constraints and feels free to just randomly speculate about how this couldn't have been carried out by an America, because Americans who do things like this always target the government, not streets filled with people [tell that to Eric Rudolph.]

Beck also speculated that we might never know the "true story" of what happened because the Obama administration is soft of Islamic terrorism and doesn't think al Qaeda exists, so they will have to "spin this" to hide the truth if it was carried out by Islamic extremists:

Erik Rush: Kill All Muslims in Response to Boston Marathon Attack

Fox News contributor goes too far in the wake of the tragic violence at the Boston Marathon.

Beck: Society Is Going to Hell and the National Organization for Women is to Blame

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck spent a bit of time discussing the case of Kermit Gosnell and the media's supposed refusal to adequately cover the story.  Despite that fact that until last week, Beck's The Blaze had barely mentioned the story, Beck blamed the media for failing to cover it and announced that he was going to delve into it in potentially graphic detail on tonight's television program.

In Beck's view, the Gosnell case and "almost everything that is going on in our society, I think, was hastened by the National Organization of Women" [sic] because the organization convinced women that they were no different than men. 

And when that happens, "society goes to hell" because men stop respecting women "and society starts to careen out of control":

Fischer on Praying for Adolf Hitler and President Obama

On Friday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer was discussing the importance of praying for elected leaders, especially President Obama since "virtually every single one of his policies is out of alignment with the will and the word of God."

The discussion prompted Fischer to make a bizarre point involving Adolf Hitler in which he asserted that the fall of the Nazi regime and the suicide of Hitler himself "happened in response to the prayers of God's people."

As Fischer explained it, God was trying to do everything in his power to reach Hitler while also respecting his free will "just like God is doing with Barack Obama," citing Ben Carson's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast as proof.

But, Fischer said, it is not doing any good as God has been "giving Barack Obama opportunity after opportunity to hear and respond to the truth and, trust me, the day could come when God says 'I have given him enough chances ... it's time to bring about some kind of a change'" before quickly adding that the change might be nothing more than a new president in 2016:

Right Wing Round-Up - 4/12/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/12/13

  • Richard Land is set to become the president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary, where he intends to "produce an ever increasing number of graduates who will be the green berets and paratroopers of God’s army."
  • Gordon Klingenschmitt explains that Margaret Thatcher was a Christian because she supported capitalism, just like Jesus.
  • Tucker Carlson says he is a Christian and an Episcopalian "but I truly despise the Episcopal Church in a lot of ways."
  • FRC prays that God will protect us from North Korea: "God, please intervene! Our brazen sins make us vulnerable despite our nation's great military power. Our leaders' perspectives are clouded, only you can navigate our nation though these deep waters. May we rush to repent and obey your word! Watch over our friends. Be our Fortress and direct our civilian and military leaders."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says "Glenn Beck has completely lost his marbles" for supporting gay marriage:

Klingenschmitt: Allowing Openly Gay NFL Players is 'a Demonic Use of the Sporting Industry'

Charisma news editor Jennifer LeClaire is not the only one concerned about the prospect of openly gay athletes playing in the NFL, as "Doctor Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt is also sounding the alarm, warning that if NFL players come out as gay, youth coaches will start "recruiting children into the homosexual lifestyle and punishing Christians because they voice an opposition to that sort of thing in the locker room."

"I think the Devil is afoot here," Klingenschmitt warned, saying it "is a demonic use of the sporting industry":
