Santorum: Call Secularism A Religion So We Can Ban It From Public Schools

It was just yesterday that the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer was calling for people with HIV to be quarantined in the name of protecting the public health. So naturally, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum appeared on Fischer's radio program today to share his excitement at having partnered with the AFA on his most recent film "One Generation Away."

During the discussion, Santorum said that Christians have allowed their faith to be removed from the public square and need to start fighting back, arguing that removing the Bible from public school classrooms is not neutrality but rather the promotion of the secular worldview. He suggested that conservative Christians should respond by "calling secularism a religion because if we did, then we could ban that too."

Claiming that the absence of religion is itself a religion, Santorum said that Christians must reassert themselves and insist that Christianity "should be taught in the schools" instead of worrying about offending people:

McFarland: Obama Voters 'Need To Get On Their Knees And Ask God's Forgiveness'

Alex McFarland is a Christian apologist who hosts a radio program on the American Family Association's radio network and serves as director of Center for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at North Greenville University, where he occasionally organizes right-wing conferences featuring speakers like of David Barton, Ben Carson, and Todd Starnes.

In a piece published on Charisma today, McFarland reiterated his belief that Barack Obama's presidency is God's judgment upon this nation, saying that everyone who voted for him must fall on their needs and beg for God's forgiveness:

We have a president today who has not only fundamentally violated his oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution but has also actually acted against our nation and our national interests. These aren't opinions; they are facts. And the American people need to be aware of them.

...

These are not simply political issues or political differences. They are fundamental worldview issues. What do we believe about life? What do we believe about liberty? Any president who believes the sanctity of life is nonexistent, the rule of law noncritical and the sovereignty of America nonessential is a president whose administration is without redemption. And the consequences our nation and the world are suffering may very well be evidence of God's judgment against a nation that has rejected Him.

As in 1776, this is not a time for inaction; it's a time for fervent prayer and repentance across our nation.  Those who supported this presidency—either through ignorance or through malicious intent—have supported the taking of human life, the rejection of Israel's right to defend itself, and the promotion of homosexuality to the detriment of the family. And those who supported these things need to get on their knees and ask God's forgiveness for violating His Word and to pray for His mercy on our nation.

And we as a nation need to corporately turn to God, repent and pray for constitutional and moral leadership that honors God's Word. Anything less will mean more Americans will die, more families will be destroyed, and the world will become a more dangerous place for life and liberty. And that is a tragedy none of us should be willing to accept.

Barton: The Entire Nation Suffers When Political Leaders Don't Base Public Policy On The Bible

Today's episode of "WallBuilders Live" featured an audio excerpt from David Barton's "Biblical Principles and the Political Process" DVD in which Barton explained that Christians must be in charge of crafting public policy at all levels in America or else God will be unable to bless this nation and all citizens will suffer as a consequence.

As Barton explained, God measures the righteousness of a nation "by the public policies they have and how well those policies conform to God's standards." Repeating his false claims about the non-discrimination ordinance passed last year in San Antonio, Texas, Barton warned that everyone in San Antonio, even those who opposed the ordinance, will now suffer "because the city has taken a position God cannot bless."

Just as, in the Bible, all of Israel suffered because of the wickedness of Ahab and Jezebel, so too will everyone in America suffer for electing leaders who do not base public policy on the Bible, he added.

"Even the good guys had to go through the national judgment brought on by bad policies from national leaders," Barton said. "Even if you disagree with those policies, even if you disagree with non-discrimination ordinances, if your city has one, God's not going to be able to bless that":

Glenn Beck Sheds Fake Tears Over The Idea That Anyone Could Be Offended By The Term 'Redskins'

During yesterday's morning meeting, Glenn Beck and his staff were discussing reports that the owner of the Atlanta Hawks was going to sell the basketball team after an internal investigation discovered that he had sent a racially charged email.

Beck, of course, thinks the entire story is so ridiculous that, for some reason, he brought out an old Redskin Brand Chewing Tobacco spittoon and pretended to sob over the idea that anyone could be offended by the imagery.

"You should have seen the children crying around it, the Native American children," he said, mockingly. "They were all standing around it going 'boo hoo hoo, I can't go on with my life because of the football team and this old spittoon, boo hoo hoo."

Claiming that Native Americans don't actually have a problem with this sort of imagery, Beck said it was actually "white liberal children that were crying about it" as he proceeded to fake cry once again: "Somebody else can't go on with their life because I did something but I didn't have anything to do with it because I'm only four, but boo hoo hoo":

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 9/8/14

  • Another claim promoted by Glenn Beck gets debunked by his own website.
  • Russian President Vladimir Putin is being guided by Satan, according to a leader of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
  • Jesse Lee Peterson says anti-gay business owners should agree to provide services to gay customers, but only after telling them that they will use the money from the sale to make a donation to anti-gay legal groups.
  • The National Organization for Marriage's John Eastman is confident that the Supreme Court will not "strike down thousands of years of history and the laws of 35 states, and say the Constitution, that doesn't speak to this question, somehow mandated that every state redefine its institution of marriage."
  • Bryan Fischer claims that Wendy Davis "is pro-life at the core of her conscience and is either blind to that plain fact or refuses to admit it."
  • Finally, Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall has written a post on the Family Research Council's blog blasting Cardinal Timothy Dolan for not objecting to the decision to allow a gay group to march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade: "As society continues to disregard what America’s Founders wrote about the laws of Nature and Nature’s God, the moral fabric of our nation is disintegrating to the point of becoming thread bare, unable to hold together even the most basic values upon which our nation was founded. For a Church authority to embrace political correctness at such a time will have consequences which extend far beyond the parade route."

Fischer: Those With HIV Should Be Quarantined Like Ebola​ Patients

During his "Meet The Press" interview yesterday, President Obama said that the United States would begin providing military support to the effort to control the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, which Bryan Fischer cited on his radio program today in order to argue that people with HIV should be quarantined as a public health measure.

Claiming that if both Ebola and HIV are spread through the exchange of bodily fluids, then the same steps should be taken to protect the public in both cases, Fischer asserted that "this is how liberals will always betray, when they don't realize what they're doing, they will betray the reality that they are fundamentally conservative at the core."

"Here's President Obama saying when you've got a public health crisis that is caused by a virus that is transmitted through the exchange of bodily fluids, what do you do?" Fischer asked. "You quarantine it! You even use military assets, if needed, to quarantine the people who have that virus so they cannot transmit it and spread it among the rest of the population":

Dr. Bryan Fischer Declares That President Obama Is A 'Pathological Narcissist'

On his radio show today, Bryan Fischer stated that he read an article last week about the characteristics of a person who is pathologically narcissistic and couldn't help but conclude that President Obama easily met that description.

Reacting to Obama's interview on "Meet The Press" this weekend in which he admitted that going golfing after delivering a statement on the murder of James Foley might have looked bad, Fischer was reminded of the piece he read last week that described narcissists as people with big egos who are highly sensitive to criticism and who are isolated because they do not believe that anyone else is worthy of sharing their company.

"You start reading this description of a pathological narcissist," Fischer concluded, "and it's just virtually impossible not to wonder how much of that applies to our president, because it sounds so familiar":

Robison: Candidates Who Support Abortion Rights Or Gay Marriage Are Incapable Of Hearing God And Leading America​

On his TV show "Life Today" this morning, James Robison interviewed Ben Carson about his current book and what Robison sees as America's rapid decline.

During the course of the conversation, after Carson cited a fake quote from Thomas Jefferson declaring that "when governments fear the people, there is liberty; when the people fear the government, there is tyranny," Robison warned that the religious leaders must begin preaching on political issues from their pulpits because "there are principalities and powers in the realm of darkness, deception and destruction" that are seeking to destroy this nation.

As such, Christians must know who to vote for, Robison said, because candidate who believe in abortion rights or marriage equality are "incapable of hearing the wisdom that comes from above and being directed by divine providence," which makes them likewise incapable "of leading a nation out of the depravity and the death and the defeat that we're experiencing":

Daubenmire: Public School Teachers Who Don't Teach About Jesus Are 'Teaching A Doctrine Of Demons'

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire was watching "The Wizard of Oz" recently and it made him wonder when Christians, in particular Christian men, lost their courage, boldness, and willingness to take a public stand against sin by allowing public school to indoctrinate their children into demon worship.

As he explained in his "News With Views" commentary today, kids who attend public schools are "being indoctrinated every day with the doctrines of demons" because teachers are not using class time to teach students about Jesus and the Ten Commandments.

"When she stands in the school house and she's training children," he said, "she's not training the children in the fear of the Lord, she is serving a second master," which is "the God of government":
