  • A pseudonymous "Jane Christian" has written an open letter to companies that support marriage equality, begging them "to make our workplace truly unified by abandoning identity politics, ceasing your support of sodomy, and advancing virtue instead of vice."

Fischer: AIDS Patients Should Sue Gay Rights Groups For Not Warning About The Health Risks Of Homosexuality

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer took a call from a doctor in Tyler, Texas, who suggested that AIDS victims ought to sue gay rights groups for not warning them about the health risks associated with homosexuality.

The caller said that, as a doctor, he is constantly warning his patients that there are health consequences for people who engage in behaviors such as drinking or smoking, just as "there are consequences for homosexual behavior."

Saying that criticism of Indiana's "religious freedom" law is no different than a group of smokers threatening to kill him and burn down his doctor's office for warning about the dangers of smoking, the caller predicted that "one of these days, some smart group of lawyers is going to get a couple of guys with AIDS and they're going to sue the people that are promulgating the lie that a behavior, a choice, is good because all it does is it increases their risk to disease, illness, and suffering."

Fischer, not surprisingly, was in complete agreement, saying that just as any doctor who told his patients that there was nothing wrong with drinking or smoking would be sued for medical malpractice, so too should gay rights groups be sued by "some homosexual who is dying of HIV/AIDS ... for shortening his life with bad medical advice":

John Hagee Winds Up Debunking His Own 'Blood Moons' Theory

On Saturday evening, right-wing televangelist John Hagee hosted a special program designed to promote his "Four Blood Moons" theory which contends that the occurrence of four lunar eclipses on Jewish feast days over the last two years is a sign from God that "something dramatic [will] happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world."

Moderated by conservative radio host Joe Pagliarulo, the program featured Hagee, pseudo-historian David Barton, Rabbi Aryeh Scheinberg, and astronomer Hugh Ross, a creationist who runs a ministry called Reasons to Believe which seeks to "spread the Christian Gospel by demonstrating that sound reason and scientific research" support Creationist beliefs.

Ross' participation in the event was something of a mystery since, from his opening remarks, he made it very clear that he did not subscribe to Hagee's premise in the slightest, saying that there is no statistical significance to these blood moons because they are very common and that Hagee is merely retroactively attaching spiritual significance to these routine events.

Hagee, of course, did not particularly appreciate the fact that Ross was completely undermining the entire premise of the show, as well as his book and movie based upon this premise, and so he challenged him to explain how it was possible for blood moons to occur on significant Jewish holiday in two consecutive years.

Ross responded that lunar eclipses are so common that it is "mathematically inevitable" that one would be able to link them up to significant events in the Bible or in the history of Israel if that is what one set out to do. The Bible, Ross said, does say that there will be signs from God, but they will be rare things like an asteroid hitting a body of water and turning the water to poison, not common things like a lunar eclipse.

"My problem with the blood moons is that it's not rare," Ross said. "It's hindsight. You're looking at different events in Israel's history and looking at different events in America's history and you're finding fits."

"These blood moons are visible here but not in Israel," Ross stated at one point, much to Hagee's surprise. Explaining that "a total lunar eclipse basically is visible to about one-third to one-half the earth," Ross asked why, if these blood moons are so significant to Israel, they are visible in America but not in Israel.

Hagee clearly was not aware of this fact, as all he could come up with as a response was that "I don't have an answer for why Israel can't see it":

Anti-Gay Pundits Equate Homosexuality With Eating Feces And Children, Drinking Poison

Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera appeared on recent episode of "America's Survival," where he and co-host Jerry Kenney made their case against homosexuality by likening it to rape, eating feces, eating children, murder, incest, and drinking poison.

After Kenney boldly declared that "I don't believe in gay people" on the grounds that nobody can prove to him "scientifically" that there is any genetic cause of homosexuality, he asserted that claiming that gay people are just "born that way" is like saying that a rapist ought to be free to rape because he was "just born a rapist."

Kenney then went on to say that there is nothing "natural" about homosexuality because whenever it occurs in nature "it doesn't occur for very long." This led him to assert that homosexuality can't be genetic because, if it was, "it [would] have died with the very first person that had the gene mutation."

Even if one does accept the claim that homosexuality is natural, Kenney continued, that still doesn't justify it because "there are a lot of things that are natural that aren't necessarily good."

"In nature, animals rape one another," he said. "So should rape be okay? Some animals eat their own waste, is that okay? Animals eat their young. Is our new standard now, in this society that we've brought down and as long as we're at the animal level then it's okay?"

"Wouldn't murder be natural?" asked LaBarbera. "Wouldn't incest be natural?"

"Poison is natural," responded Kenney. "Let's all drink a cup of poison":

Matt Barber: Gay Marriage Is Satanic

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, as Mat Staver and Matt Barber discussed Liberty Counsel's effort to defend Puerto Rico's ban on gay marriage, Barber once again shared his view that the push for marriage equality is literally satanic.

"From the spiritual level," Barber asked, "who is the Lawless One? Who is the Great Deceiver referred to in Scripture? The Lawless One is the Father of Lies himself and so this kind lawlessness, we know who is behind it. We know who is behind this push to redefine marriage, from a spiritual standpoint. If God designed human sexuality and designed them male and female, we know who is attacking God's design for human sexuality, God's design for the differences between the sexes and coming together in the institution of marriage as one as one flesh. And it also is a representation of the church, of Christ's relationship with the church, the bride of Christ. And so that is something that Satan hates, it is something that he wants to attack and undermine, so from a spiritual standpoint, isn't it what this all kind of derives from?"

Kincaid: SCOTUS Justices Are Insane For Striking Down DOMA And 'Should Be Straitjacketed'

On a recent episode of "America's Survival," hosts Cliff Kincaid and Jerry Kenney agreed that the five Supreme Court justices who wrote the ruling in United States v. Windsor, which struck ruling striking down part of the Defense of Marriage Act back in 2013 are literally insane and need to be removed from the court and placed in straitjackets.

Kenney said that since the justices ignored the law and instead based the ruling entirely on emotion, "they ought to be removed from the bench" because "they have proven that they have absolutely lost it, that they have no grasp of reality whatsoever."

Kincaid was in complete agreement.

"I think they are insane," he said. "They should be straitjacketed":

Barber: Criticism Of Indiana Law Is Laying The Groundwork For Nazi-Like Persecution Of Christians

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber railed against criticism of Indiana's recently-enacted "religious freedom" law, saying that such leftist "propaganda" was no different than how the Nazis demonized Jews in Germany.

After Staver asserted that gay rights activists are out to destroy religious freedom, Barber responded by warning that attacks on the Indiana law were laying the groundwork for persecution of Christians in America.

"You wonder how, in Nazi Germany, the propagandists were able to get an entire nation of people on board with persecuting to Jews the level that they're doing," Barber said. "We see it being repeated here with an entire nation of people, these leftists media propagandists, getting them on board for a soft persecution, at least at this point and time, of Christians here in the U.S.":
