On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer reacted to the arrest of Ahmad Khan Rahami, who is a suspect in a string of bombings that took place in New York and New Jersey over the weekend, by calling for families of Muslims who engage in terrorism within the United States to be stripped of their citizenship and deported.
Rahami is a U.S. citizen who was born in Afghanistan, which prompted Fischer to declare that Rahami should be charged with treason and, if he is found guilty, his entire family should be deported.
"Anybody who is an American citizen who has an Islamic background and has become a citizen like this guy did, what he did really does represent an act of treason," Fischer said. "Citizenship can be revoked for what these individuals do, so revoke their citizenship. Let everybody know we're going to revoke the citizenship for your entire family. We believe in keeping families together, so we will send you all back to your homeland together so you can all be together. But you need to understand, that's what's going to happen if any one member of your family commits an act of terror against the citizens of the United States."
Glenn Beck was outraged by President Obama's remarks at a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner over the weekend, where he said that he would consider it "a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election."
Beck, who beagn attacking Obama as a white-hating racist just months after he took office but now has the gall to say that Obama is personally responsible for failing to solve the issue of race relations in this country, said that the black community has no reason to listen to Obama on this issue because his presidency has been responsible for setting back race relations in America by decades.
"Why should people in the black community give him a good send-off?" Beck asked, claiming that things have only gotten progressively worse for African American's during Obama's time in office. When his co-host, Pat Gray, said that Obama "set back race relations in this country 40 years, 50 years," Beck readily concurred.
Anti-LGBT activist Mike Heath of MaineResistance recently interviewed Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality regarding what he considered to be the failure of the Religious Right movement to go on offense against the LGBT rights movement.
LaBarbera said that while groups like the Family Research Council and the American Family Association are committed to resisting LGBT rights measures when they are proposed, they are far less willing to go on the offensive in order to actually reverse the gains that the LGBT community has made in recent years.
This position makes no sense, LaBarbera said, because anti-gay activists have God and truth on their side.
"That's the shame of our movement," he said. "The homosexual activists behave as if they have the truth. We act as if we're ashamed of the truth when, in reality, we have the truth. Look at homosexuality; God says it's an abomination. Well, what a shocker that the behavior that God says is an abomination is vastly disproportionately represented among sexually transmitted diseases. Gee, Mike, what a shocker!"
Saying that syphilis cases are surging because of gay men, LaBarbera declared that "what we're finding in the science is that homosexuality is as bad as God said it was and you can't change that."
American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer declared on his radio program on Friday that a person who does not believe in God or who supports abortion rights is unqualified to serve as a judge at any level in America.
Fischer got onto the subject after praising Donald Trump on his radio show for naming Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Antony List as the head of his presidential campaign's pro-life coalition.
"I would submit to you that no man is qualified to sit as a judge in America who does not understand and believe that there is a Creator and that the Creator is the source of every single one of our fundamental, inalienable rights," Fischer said, "and that the first of these rights given to us by God is the right to life."
"No one is qualified to sit on any bench in the judiciary at any level, whether municipal or county or local or state or federal," he continued, "no man is qualified to sit on the bench who does not believe in a Creator, does not believe that the Creator is the source of all of our rights and does not believe that the very first of these rights, these legal rights, the constitutional rights, is the right to life."
For years, Glenn Beck has been telling his audience that they will go down in history as the oneswhosavedAmerica when everything collapsed. But now that time has come, he told his studio audience last night, and so they had better be prepared.
Beck predicted that regardless of whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton wins the election, America is headed for utter chaos and destruction, during which members of his audience will emerge as the leaders whom future generations will build statues of and credit with restoring this nation. Most importantly, he promised, they will be richly rewarded by God in heaven.
"You're going to have to be leader," Beck told them. "It's a huge responsibility but it's good" because, if they believe in eternal life, they now "have the big opportunity to step up and really be a person that returns home with honor."
"They will build statues of people from these days some day," Beck said. "Historians will read about us. Not everybody has that opportunity. That's a glorious opportunity given to us."
Last night, David Barton spoke at an event hosted by the Dallas Eagle Forum, where he told the conservative Christians who had gathered to hear him speak that they had a biblical responsibility to vote for Donald Trump in November.
Barton, who has previously declared that Trump is "God's guy" in this election and warned that Christians will have to answer to God for failing to support him, told the audience that those who say they cannot vote for Trump don't understand that they are required by the Bible to do so.
"Let's take and apply biblical thinking to the election that we've got right now," Barton said. "We have a lot of Christians and I see them all of the time saying, 'There is no way I can vote for Donald Trump with the kind of lifestyle he's got and what he's been involved with.' Okay, I understand that. But, by the way, I've got to point out what the Bible says in Proverbs 14:34, the measurement you use for a nation at any point in time is 'righteousness exalts a nation, sin is a reproach to any people.' So, Donald Trump doesn't have the righteousness? No, no, God blesses a nation based on the policies in the nation."
Citing his favorite right-wing Jewish source, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Barton declared that there is no word in the Hebrew language for "coincidence" or "retirement" or "fair" because these are all things that have no place in the world that God created. There is also no Hebrew word for "right," Barton stated, because people don't have "rights," they have "responsibilities."
"This generation has become the entitlement generation," Barton said. "They think they're entitled to all sorts of stuff. One of that is we have a right to vote, that is my right and I'm not going to exercise it because I don't like [the candidates]. No, you don't have a right, you have a responsibility. God put a vote in your hand and He's going to ask you what you did with that vote when you came back and if you say, 'I didn't do anything with it,' look up what happened in Matthew 25 and Luke 19; it didn't turn out good for the guy who had been given a trust and didn't do anything with it. See, we don't have a choice of whether we vote in this election. We will vote in this election. That's what Christians ought to understand. They don't have a right to vote, they have a responsibility to vote."
On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer reiterated his view that the "proliferation of languages" in America is a curse that God has placed upon this nation "to protect us from ourselves" because we have become fundamentally evil and a menace to the entire world.
"This kind of diversity is not a blessing," Fischer said. "This kind of multiculturalism is not a blessing, it is a curse" that God has imposed upon us so that we cannot communicate easily with one another in order to thwart our evil plans, just as he did those seeking to construct the Tower of Babel in the book of Genesis.
By not insisting that those seeking to immigrate to the United States first be required to pass an English literacy test and be willing assimilate into our culture, Fischer said, America is bringing God's curse upon ourselves.
"The confusion of languages is a check on the evil that otherwise a nation would do," he claimed, "and I think that's what's happening here in America, that this is a part of God's judgment on America because we have drifted from Him and now, increasingly, the plans and intentions of the heart of the American people, the American government, our cultural leaders are evil."
"I think what's going on here," Fischer concluded, "God is saying, 'This lack of assimilation that is caused by this profusion of languages, it's actually something that I am using to check the evil that the United States otherwise would do.'"
