David Barton's Brilliant New Defense Against Criticism: I'm Rubber, You're Glue

Pseudo-historian David Barton seems to have come up with a new talking point for hitting back at those who criticize right-wing Christians: I know you are, but what am I?

On his "WallBuilders Live" radio show yesterday, Barton mistakenly claimed that Romans 2:21 says that those who condemn others are often only condemning themselves because they are guilty of the very things for which they are attacking others, which he used to attack those who criticize the Religious Right (it's actually Romans 2:1 that says this).

"Usually what they accuse you of is what they're guilty of," he said. "They yell intolerance at us when they're the intolerant ones. They yell bigotry at us, they're the bigoted ones. They yell anti-science at us, they're the anti-science. You get used to when people call you names, it's because they're very conscious and sensitive of what that looks like because they are one."

Apparently Barton was so pleased with this ingenious argument that he repeated it on today's show, declaring that when "they accuse us of being the haters or whatever; no, that's because they look in a mirror and they know how to recognize a hater when they see one because they see one every morning."

Theodore Shoebat On Orlando Massacre: It's 'The State's Job To Kill The Sodomites,' Not Vigilantes

Last night, extremist anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat posted an hour-long video in response to the massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando over the weekend in which he, like his father, expressed no sympathy for those "sodomites" who died because the entire tragedy was nothing more than "scum killing scum."

Both Islam and homosexuality are aberrations, he declared, and "Muslims kill each other all the time [and] sodomites kill each other all the time," so this case of a Muslim killing dozens of gay people was nothing more than "mutant killing mutant, devil killing devil."

"Sodomites are criminals" and do not deserve the prayers of Christians, Shoebat stated. "The sodomites who were killed in this club were not innocent people. They were not good people. They were not people who were just victims who we should just feel sorry for. It was scum killing scum."

The real victims of this attack, Shoebat said, are people like him who are being unfairly painted as radicals and likened to ISIS simply because they openly advocate putting gay people to death.

Shoebat, who last year was featured alongside several congressmen and GOP presidential candidates in an anti-gay "documentary," stated that he does not support the actions of the man who opened fired on the nightclub — not because he doesn't think that gay people should be killed, but simply because executing gay people is the job of the government, not vigilantes.

"I don't believe in vigilantism, but I do believe in the government killing the sodomites," he explained. "I do believe in the government arresting the sodomites and executing them for homosexuality. Under my rule, that sodomite club in Orlando, it would have been destroyed, it would have been demolished, bulldozed and all the bastards in there would have been arrested, tried, found guilty for homosexuality and executed."

"What this guy did was vigilantism," Shoebat stated, which he doesn't support because it's "the state's job to kill the sodomites."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/13/16

  • Apparently Donald Trump's plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border will be good spiritually for Mexicans because "too many of the Mexicans have relied on their dream being coming to America as their salvation rather than trusting in the Lord to provide."
  • The Benham brothers say that America is under God's judgment because of legal abortion.
  • C. Peter Wagner, a leading figure in the New Apostolic Reformation, is backing Donald Trump: "Let me point out that influence is related to spirituality in the Religion Mountain, but this is not true in any of the other six mountains that are the molders of culture. The chief producer of influence in the six non-Religion mountains is not spirituality but success. The most successful people are the most influential. Success? In the Business Mountain and the Media Mountain Trump has accumulated $8-10 billion. He knows how to influence. I want to vote for a commander-in-chief, not a bishop-in-chief."
  • On a related note, several other NAR leaders, including Mike Bickle, recently met with Pope Francis.
  • Finally, Shoebat.com's Andrew Bieszad says there were no blameless victims in Orlando because both Islam and homosexuality are evil: "Do not go and tell me these people are 'martyrs' or 'good guys,' because the hard reality was we saw two denziens of hell fighting with each other in a foreshadowing of what hell really looks like, which is a place where there is no love, where everybody hates each other, where the saints are cursed and the only thing that abides is pure, hateful, Godless evil amidst the stench of brimstone and raging flames fueled by the wrath of God."

Praying With Gordon Klingenschmitt Can Free Transgender People From The 'Demonic Spirit Of Lying'

On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program recently, Colorado Republican state lawmaker and Religious Right activist Gordon Klingenschmitt declared that transgender individuals are literally possessed by demonic spirits, but that he could exorcise them of these demons if they would simply pray with him.

Klingenschmitt was discussing the declaration by the University of North Carolina system that it would not "enforce a law requiring transgender students to use restrooms corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates" when he declared that transgender people are possessed by a "demonic spirit of lying."

"If a man feels like a woman inside," Klingenschmitt stated, "it's not because there's actually a woman inside of him, it's because there's a demonic spirit of lying inside of him. And I'm sure he does feel like a woman. I'm sure those feelings are very real and yet, they're lies. They're very real lies."

Those feelings are "coming from the devil," Klingenschmitt explained, because transgender people have "allowed that demonic spirit to manifest inside of you," which is causing them "to have the feelings that the devil wants you to have."

"You will feel like a woman inside and there is a demon inside of you, causing you to feel that way," he said. "And what you need is simply to renounce the spirit of lying ... We can pray right now and Jesus Christ will come into your heart and give you freedom and give you deliverance and you will feel like a man again, the man that God made you to be."

Walid Shoebat: 'The Only Ones Moaning Over Fifty Gays Slaughtered Are Liberals, Idiots And Gay Lovers'

Walid Shoebat, a supposed ex-terrorist who is now an extremist anti-Islam and anti-gay activist, responded to this weekend's massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, by attacking gays, Jews, and liberals and declaring that it ought to be illegal to be gay or Muslim in America.

Shoebat was especially upset with "dumb Jews" like Sam Seder, who mocked him for saying that he refuses to fly on commercial airlines because a pilot may be a Muslim:

Instead of complementing us, the mocking liberal Jew Sam, Seder, says that we, not the Muslim “should be under watch”.

This is how the system from media to government repays Christian converts from Islam.

Who is laughing now Mr. Seder? Boy you are dumb and I can’t feel sorry for dumb Jews.

Even when we point a stupid Jew to Evangelical Christians, they too get angry since in their view a Jew can do no evil.

The whole culture is dumber than a nail.

Liberals and gays should all screw each other. Finally I could watch TV and could care less.

...

The only ones moaning over fifty gays slaughtered are liberals, idiots and gay lovers.

...

The U.S. supports Muslim terrorists in Syria so long they get at Russia and Bashar Al-Assad and kill Syrian soldiers. And now I am supposed to only care when gays are killed and I am supposed to jump up and down?

I don’t care about gays who are Muslim loving anti-gun liberals. Stupid people who hate life die. Stupid people who hate life always die.

The haters of God love death.

...

The FBI doesn’t care since the system is impossible to fix unless of course to be “Muslim” should be illegal and to be “Gay” should also be illegal since gays are disgusting and are Muslim-loving anti guns.

Agents have their hands tied by politicians and the system will never make this politically incorrect change, so all I can say is “enjoy the death toll”.

  • The latest from David and Jason Benham: "How Benham Brothers Are Interceding for Gay Christian Rocker Trey Pearson." Are they offering him baseball tickets?
  • Tony Perkins laments that "we're celebrating gay pride at the expense of American pride."
  • Reportedly nearly 1,000 Religious Right activists have requested permission to attend the upcoming closed-door meeting with Donald Trump.
  • Kristan Hawkins says Hillary Clinton is "the Regina George of politics, the Mean Girl ready to throw other women under the bus because they don’t agree with her or because they just aren’t as cool as her and don’t wear $12,000 Armani jackets."
  • Richard Land will support Donald Trump because "we're dealing with a choice between a lesser evil and a greater evil, and Mrs. Clinton is the greater evil ... [I]f we don't help the lesser evil prevail over the greater evil, we become responsible morally for helping the greater evil to prevail."
  • Finally, Chris Mills has some thoughts on Hillary Clinton: "In my opinion she fulfills the duties of the Chaplin of the Communistic Church of America, she stands un-apologetically before the world as 'The Protector of the Perverse, The Defender of the Demented, The Unifier of the Unrepentant,  The Guardian of the Godless, The Matriarch of the Altar of Molech and the High Priestess of the Satanic Temple'."

Carl Gallups Calls Upon Sheriffs To Threaten To Arrest Target Store Managers

Donald Trump-loving right-wing pastor and conspiracy theorist Carl Gallups appeared on TheDove TV's "Focus Today" program yesterday, where he called upon sheriffs to tell managers of Target stores in their communities that they will be arrested if they follow the company policy of allowing transgender individuals to use facilities that match their gender identity.

Bragging that he is a "sworn special deputy" in Arizona under extremist Maricopa County sheriff Joe Arpaio, Gallups also called upon sheriffs all over the nation to arrest anyone who follows Obama administration guidelines for respecting the rights of transgender students.

Falsely claiming that the Obama administration's policy allows male teachers or janitors to take showers with female students, Gallups declared that he "is calling upon sheriffs all over this nation: man up!"

"Sheriffs needs to go to Target managers operating in their counties," Gallups proclaimed, "and say, 'I am the chief constitutional law enforcement officer of this county. If a man purposely goes into the women's room in your store, I will arrest the man and I will arrest you, mister manager, for aiding and abetting in a crime."

More Profound Insights From Glenn Beck: Parting The Red Sea Was 'God's Empire State Building'

Every few months, Glenn Beck gets worked up as he attempts to deliver some message that he believes contains profound insights but which ends up being little more than incoherent nonsense, as he demonstrated again on his television show last night.

After spending the entire program telling his studio audience that America is utterly doomed regardless of whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton becomes president, Beck tried to leave them "with a little bit of hope" by explaining that the parting of the Red Sea was "God's Empire State Building."

Just as man took things that already existed and used them to construct the Empire State Building, God took the wind and used it to part the Red Sea, Beck explained. He said that God is also capable of taking nothing and turning it into something, as He did with the atom, but both efforts require God's full attention because if He turns away, they collapse.

Similarly, Beck has been trying to build some "revolutionary" things, but they require his full attention because "when we want do to a revolution, we had better stay in all the time — go, go, go, go, go, go, go — because if you let go and you turn your face, it goes back to its natural space."

"God really helps those who are doing a revolutionary thing," Beck declared. "As long as we are putting all of our power into it, He has to be there every step of the way, putting all of His power in us as well."
