Fischer: You Can't Support Gay Rights 'And Call Yourself A Follower Of Christ'

On Friday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who demanded to know why nobody on the American Family Radio network will declare that President Obama is not a Christian. We have no idea what programs this caller is listening to if he thinks that nobody on AFR is willing to say that Obama is not a Christian, because we hear the various hosts saying this exact thing all the time.

Fischer, of course, was more than happy to acquiesce to the caller's demand and declare that Obama "is not a sincerely devoted follower of Jesus Christ so, in my mind, that means he's not a Christian."

And Fischer knows this, he said, because "nobody can support and promote and celebrate homosexual behavior who is a sincerely devoted follower of Christ. It's impossible, because Christ and his apostles made it very clear that that's a sin. You can't celebrate that, can't promote that and call yourself a follower of Christ."

While Fischer was, for some reason, unwilling to declare that Obama is actually a Muslim, he nonetheless insisted that everyone in Washington, D.C. knows that he is.

"He walks like a Muslim. He talks like a Muslim. He sounds like a Muslim. He acts like a Muslim," Fischer said. "Jesus said 'by your fruits, you shall know them' and at some point people are going to start connecting those dots":

Liberty Counsel: Christians Who Discriminate Against Gays Are Living Out MLK's Legacy

Liberty Counsel issued a press release yesterday in which the anti-gay organization attempted to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day by declaring that conservative Christians who refuse to provide services to gay couples are the ones who are living out MLK's legacy:

As we remember today the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we are inspired by his courage to combat injustice that had become imbedded in our culture and our law.

Writing from a jail cell in Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. King said, “I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘an unjust law is no law at all.’”

“Marriage as the union of one man and one woman was not created by government or religion. It is rooted in natural law,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Same-sex marriage is contrary to the natural created order of God Almighty. Laws deconstructing natural marriage and which compel people to affirm sinful sexual behavior or unions are unjust.”

...

Today, the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is being lived out by bakers, photographers, florists, ministers, county clerks, and owners of wedding venues who have lost their businesses, been forced to pay exorbitant fines, been threatened with jail, and made to choose between the natural created order of marriage between one man and one woman and judges who side with same-sex couples.

Mike Huckabee: Support The Fair Tax Because 'Giving Proportionately Is Biblical'

Mike Huckabee was the guest on James Robison's "Life Today" television program this morning, promoting his new book "God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy," which seems to be focused on defending "real America" from all those phonies and snobby elitists who live in New York, Washington, D.C., and Hollywood.

After lamenting that America is no longer a place where women who use profanity are considered to be "trash," Huckabee made his case for the "fair tax," which is a proposal to scrap all federal taxes and replace them with a 30% tax on consumption, because that is what is biblical.

"I believe in the biblical understanding of stewardship," Huckabee said. "Everybody should have something invested. God doesn't say, 'Oh, you're too poor, don't give anything.' He says, 'Everyone give a tithe.' ... I'm telling you something, giving proportionately is biblical."

Huckabee added that an additional bonus of the fair tax is that "we would get rid of the I.R.S.."

"They would be gone," he said. "Done forever and forever!"

  • Contrary to right-wing claims, there are not hundreds of Muslim-controlled "no-go zones" all over Europe.
  • Gov. Bobby Jindal apparently doesn't actually care about the truth, which is why he is reportedly set to repeat this myth when he speaks in London on Monday.
  • BarbWire's Gina Miller declares that "the only rational conclusion is that this [President Obama] is an enemy of the United States."
  • Ben Carson is expected to officially launch his presidential exploratory committee in the next few weeks.
  • Finally, while most of the other speakers have dropped out of the Legatus conference after learning of the organization's anti-gay views, Gov. Jindal is still scheduled to speak and Peter LaBarbera is urging anti-gay activists to thank him for not capitulating to the "Gay Thought Police."

Beck: Our Founding Principles Require That Christianity Receive Preferential Treatment

For the last three years, right-wing Christian groups have been distributing Bibles to students in the Orange County, Florida, public schools system every January on "National Freedom of Religion Day." This year, after atheist groups and Satanists sought to likewise distribute materials to students, the school system suspended the program and Glenn Beck is predictably furious.

On his television program last night, Beck insisted that not allowing Christianity to have a preferred place in American society is a violation of the very principles upon which this nation was founded.

"We are clearly a Judeo-Christian nation," he said while warning that society has now begun to "coddle those who disagree with Judeo-Christian values."

"We are becoming openly hostile to our own foundation," Beck said. "We have tolerated and excused and embraced the ideals that are in direct opposition to our founding principles."

After slamming the Florida school system for not even having "enough spine left to stand up to Satanists," Beck insisted that this is not an issue of equal treatment or free speech. 

"We lie to ourselves and we say it's our principles, we believe in free speech," he said. "It's not our principles of free speech. This is national suicide":

Fischer And Rios Are Outraged That A Muslim Congressman Is Allowed To Serve On The House Intelligence Committee

Earlier this week, Democratic Rep. André Carson of Indiana was named to House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which has thrown the Right into a tizzy because Carson is Muslim.

On Bryan Fischer's radio program yesterday, he and Sandy Rios, both of the American Family Association, shared their disbelief over the appointment, with Rios voicing concern because Carson has received money from Muslim organizations while Fischer declared that it blows his mind that America would ever allow a Muslim to serve in such a position.

"We just had this Muslim terrorist attack in Paris," he said. "Everybody is saying we've got to ramp up our effort to stop the threat of Islam in our country, and now it's like putting a fox inside the hen house":

  • The RNC has voted to censure David Agema for posting an article from a white supremacist magazine on his Facebook page.
  • Sure, CAIR immediately denounced the Charlie Hebdo attack, but Michael Brown doesn't believe them.
  • Finally, a cell phone service "for conservatives, by conservatives."
  • Mike Huckabee has no qualms about associating with the anti-gay bigots at the American Family Association judging by the fact that he called into the "Today's Issues" radio program this morning to promote his forthcoming book.
  • Rick Santorum also obviously has no qualms about standing with anti-gay bigots, as he'll be speaking at Liberty Counsel's "Awakening 2015" event in March.
  • Finally, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt laughably insists that his role as a demon-hunting anti-gay exorcist will have no impact on his work as a Colorado state legislator: "I'm one person, but I might wear two hats. And my weekend job, what I preach on Sundays, is not necessarily related to my day job, which I do Monday through Friday here in the state legislature."

Fischer: Duke Is 'Inviting The Demons Of The Abyss' Onto Campus By Allowing Muslim Prayer

Beginning tomorrow, members of the Muslim Students Association at Duke University will be allowed to use the campus chapel bell tower to issue the weekly call to prayer and the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer is predictably alarmed.

After declaring on his radio program today that Muslim Students Associations are nothing more than terrorist sleeper cells, Fischer went on to warn that Muslim prayers "are like a power pill" for the "demonic counterfeit god" Allah and so, by allowing Muslim students at Duke to use the bell tower to issue the call to prayer, the school is "inviting the demons of the abyss onto that campus."

"When Muslim students go to prayer," he said, "they're appealing to Allah, this demonic counterfeit god, to manifest his presence on the campus of Duke and he will. That's what's dangerous about this. It's not harmless, it's not just a matter of innocent accommodation or innocent multiculturalism or innocent diversity. It is an extremely dangerous thing for Duke to do":
