On Friday's radio program, Bryan Fischer interviewed Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center about the new DirecTV program "You Me Her" which, according to press reports, "centers around a three-way romantic relationship involving a suburban married couple."
Fischer and Gainor were predictably outraged about the show, with Gainor decrying it for "putting a nuclear weapon under the nuclear family and destroying it."
Just 20 years ago, Fischer said, the idea of gay marriage would have been "unthinkable" but now polygamy is being openly prompted on television and this "cultural rot is becoming mainstream."
Gainor agreed, fuming that "if ISIS were to launch a widespread media propaganda campaign tearing down American culture, targeting Christianity, targeting American children for depravity ... we would declare war on them. And in fact, Hollywood does it every single day, probably every single minute."
"Hollywood is the most irresponsible use of power we have ever seen," Gainor stated.
Yesterday, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam vetoed a bill that would have made the Bible the state's official book and American Family Radio's Bryan Fischer kicked off his radio program today by declaring that, in doing so, Haslam "was doing the devil's work."
Citing Psalm 119, Fischer said that studying the Bible "imparts understanding to the simple," which is why Satan is "so intent on keeping the word of God out of our public school system."
Fischer said that Haslam and Idaho Gov. Butch Otter, who recently vetoed legislation that would have allowed the Bible to be used in public school instruction, were both doing the work of the devil.
Otter and Haslam, Fischer said, were cooperating "with the agenda of Satan, who hates the Bible, [who] hates the word of God."
On his radio program today, Glenn Beck sat down with Drew Ryun, political director of the pro-Ted Cruz Trusted Leadership super PAC, where they assured everyone that the notoriouslyuniversallyhated Republican presidential candidate is actually really nice and funny and well-liked.
Young people, in particular, love Cruz, Ryun asserted, because "he is one of the most likeable people you will ever meet" and "he resonates with them."
Beck was in complete agreement, saying that young people on his staff are constantly telling him that Cruz "is the nicest guy [they have] ever seen, and funny."
In a Washington Post poll released yesterday, 50 percent of young adults and 53 percent of voters overall had an unfavorable opinion of Cruz.
Earlier this week, Glenn Beck broadcast his radio program from home because his good friend Ted Cruz was visiting, hanging out and using Beck's home to shoot footage for his presidential campaign.
As Beck noted when he returned to the studio the following day, it's pretty weird that someone who might become the president was just hanging out in Beck's kitchen.
"Yesterday, I had the opportunity to sit with Ted Cruz," Beck stated, "and it was really a remarkable day. At one point, they were shooting some things for the campaign, they used my yard to shoot some things outside and I was standing there, I'm watching the crew work and they're working on the language in his speech and everything else and I'm just standing back on the driveway and I'm just watching this thing happen and I look at my wife and I said, 'I can't believe that the guy who might possibly be the president of the United States is at our house, is on our lawn."
"It was just bizarre," he stated. "I've been friends with him for a while, but it's weird to think that this guy might now be the president of the United States and you know him. And so he was walking back into the house and I said, 'Ted, I don't mean to be weird here, but it's really weird to think that you might the president of the United States and you're in my kitchen.'"
Donald Trump says that his favorite Bible verse is "an eye for an eye," which tells you all you need to know about what sort of Christian he is.
Anne Graham Lotz says that "now is the time to get serious about repentance and prayer" because America is under God's judgment.
"Coach" Dave Daubenmire admits that "I am a hater. And a proud one, I might add. I hate what homosexuality does to people. I hate the destructive nature of that debaucherous behavior and the impact it has on the individual. I hate the pain that it causes to innocent parents and siblings. I hate that it is taught to our children as normal behavior."
Erik Rush declares that "the 'struggle for LGBT rights' in America is and has always been nothing more than a pretext for the complete disenfranchisement of Christians."
Finally, FRC again prays that anti-LGBT laws will be passed in every state: "May Christians arise in every state to demand that their leaders uphold the religious liberty guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. May every state adopt Religious Freedom Restoration Acts (RFRAs) and Government Non-Discrimination Acts (GNDA) to protect Bible-believing Christians and all Americans. May our governments cease and desist from dispensing special rights to individuals because of their sexual proclivities and practices. May God intervene to stop the insanity and preserve the innocence of our children and grandchildren."
On today's "Prophetic Perspectives on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner explained that everything that is wrong in America today is rooted in having kicked God out of the public square but can all be reversed by simply turning back to God.
"We are sure making a mess of things without Him," Joyner said, "and it's been the result of trying to do things without Him. You can see the meltdown of our republic in all the things now that have built up to be such threats to our continued existence began when we said we're not even going to allow prayer to God in our public places. Well, you kick God out and you're on your own."
"We're at the end. We're about to totally destroy the earth and ourselves," Joyner stated, noting that this is exactly was the Bible predicts will happen before Jesus returns.
"The simple answer to every one of our national problems is to turn back to God," he concluded. "As long as God was our Lord and we honored Him as such, we were an unbelievably blessed nation and then from the very point — you can mark it to the year — when we said, 'God we don't want you in our public places anymore, we don't even want the mention of you, we don't want people praying to you,' we basically said, 'God, we don't want you any more in our country,' boy, it started the tailspin."
On his television program last week, Glenn Beck lamented that nobody can understand the Moses-like burden that Ted Cruz carries, knowing that he's been called by God to run for president. Earlier this week, our video clip of Beck's comments got picked up by the right-wing blog Gateway Pundit, whose post was then linked to by the Drudge Report.
Beck has been in something of a feud with Drudge for severalweeksnow, repeatedly accusing the powerhouse right-wing website of engaging in anti-Christian bigotry by mocking his seemingly nonstop declarations that Cruz has been raised from birth and divinely anointed to save America.
Naturally, Beck was upset that Drudge again supposedly attacked him for his faith by linking to an article about his Moses comment and took issue with it on his radio program yesterday.
The interesting thing about this that we want to point out is that Beck initially didn't even remember making the statement but recalled having said it once the audio was played for him. Around the 3:40 mark, Beck said that he remembers saying it during last week's television show where he interviewed right-wing evangelical leader Samuel Rodriguez and then proceeded to explain how this attack on him is really an effort to discredit Rodriguez because he is so influential.
"Now I remember that," Beck said. "That was with Sam Rodriguez. You know what this is? They had to destroy this. This was a powerful episode. A powerful episode and Sam Rodriguez is one of the heads of the Hispanic caucus; he oversees 40,000 churches in America, he is a Time 100 most influential people in America. I mean, he is a big, big deal. You had to destroy this interview. You had to."
That is an interesting theory ... unfortunately for Beck, it is entirely wrong, since he made the Moses comment while speaking to his studio audience last Thursday night, which was the night after his discussion with Rodriguez:
This is a case study in the fact that even though Beck doesn't know what he's talking about, he's not about to let that stop him from spinning a conspiracy theory out of his own ignorance.
Yesterday, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant took time out of his day to be interviewed by Tim Wildmon, head of the Mississippi-based anti-gay hate group the American Family Association. As Wildmon and his co-hosts showered Bryant in praise and prayer for recently signing a radical anti-LGBT bill into law, the governor said that he didn't understand why the law provoked so much outrage, since it was just an effort to balance the scales of justice by allowing people to openly discriminate in the name of "religious liberty."
"This is about the churches," Bryant said. "The next stop will be American Family Radio and it will be Mississippi College, it will be St. Dominic's Hospital as lawsuits will be filed; it will be churches where pastors can say, 'I can't perform that ceremony,' a lawsuit will be filed, it will go to a federal court and the federal court will say, yes, they should be a protected class, those who choose to marry and want to be married in the church and that church might lose its tax-exempt status and they'll have to close. And church after church after church across this country will close."
"We think people of faith have rights," he continued. "I know that's a strange notion, but we believe the scales of justice must be balanced for those people of faith and those that have other ideas about their desires in life. And that's what the scales of justice must do is be balanced and we believe that this is a step in protecting the civil liberties of people of faith just as the First Amendment of the Constitution does."
