On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer hailed Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore as a modern-day Martin Luther King, Jr. for his order to state probate judges not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples after a federal judge struck down the state's gay marriage ban.
Fischer laughably asserted that it is the federal judge, not Moore, "who is standing in the courthouse doorway ... in defiance of both the law and the Constitution," before praising Moore and the probate judges who are refusing to grant marriage licenses to gay couples as the heirs of MLK.
"What Judge Moore and these probate judges are doing is in the finest tradition of Martin Luther King, Jr.," he said. "They are waging the civil rights battle of this decade, using nonviolent protest to do it":
Robert Jeffress was the guest on James Dobson's "Family Talk" radio program today, promoting his new book, "Countdown to the Apocalypse: Why ISIS and Ebola Are Only the Beginning," where he made his case that acceptance of gay marriage is proof that we are now living in the End Times.
"I think the greatest sign of the End Times that we see in our country right now is the increasing moral disorder in our country that we're seeing played out in our culture right now," the prominent Southern Baptist pastor said. "Especially in the realm of gay marriage. What was thought to be unbelievable just 10 or 20 years ago, our culture is now celebrating. A perversion that was once condemned is now celebrated."
Jeffress went on to warn that the Supreme Court will most likely strike down all the gay marriage bans in America relatively soon and then gay activists "will not rest, these extremists, until they make us all bow down and bless what God has called a perversion."
The Bible warns, Jeffress said, that "in the Last Days, there will be no restraint and you see that not only in the acceptance of gay marriage, but also in abortion, you see it in the lawlessness where police officers are gunned down routinely. All of these things are a sign of the Last Days":
Not surprisingly, that effort is being welcomed by Religious Right activist and Colorado state representative Gordon Klingenschmitt is welcoming the effort, as he endorsed it on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program recently in hopes that "we can take back America for the Kingdom of God."
Saying that there are too many elected officials today who "promote the kingdom of sin and they want to legislate their immorality on the people," Klingenschmitt declared that America would be better served if those who promote the Kingdom of God were elected to office.
"You can only have two kinds of morality," he said. "You can have God's morality or immorality. I would much rather be ruled by godly, God-fearing men and women."
Klingenschmitt then prayed for Lane and his effort and that all the pastors who decide to run for office will win "so we can take back America for the Kingdom of God in Jesus' name":
In 2012, Jeremy Bird served as the national field director for President Obama's re-election campaign, after which he co-founded a political consulting firm called 270 Strategies. Recently, Bird and his firm were hired by a nascent political campaign in Israel created to try to defeat the ruling Likud Party in the upcoming elections.
Since Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a Likud Party candidate, a defeat for the party would also be a defeat for Netanyahu, and that possibility is an outrage to Matt Barber, who is now logically demanding that President Obama be impeached.
As Barber and Mat Staver explained on today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, because an organization called OneVoice, which has been involved in the effort to replace the Israeli government, received an unrelated grant from the U.S. State Department last year, that means that American tax dollars are now being used to rig the election in Israel.
To make matters even worse in the eyes of Barber and Staver, someone who worked on President Obama's campaign but is now an independent political consultant is also working on that same effort, which can only mean that President Obama is personally leading the effort to defeat Netanyahu and therefore must be impeached.
"What a slap in the face and it shows our allies across the country that the United States cannot be trusted," Barber fumed, claiming that Obama personally sent his "A-Team propagandist hit squad" into Israel to try to defeat Netanyahu.
"It's unconscionable that he would do this. It's unethical and this president needs to be investigated by the United States Senate," Barber continued. "This president just continues to do one impeachable thing after another":
Glenn Beck says that the Tea Party needs to change its name because the movement has become too "maligned." Funny, on Monday, Beck said that trying to change the name of something unpopular was a despicable progressive tactic: "That is the progressive answer. That’s what Progressives do for everything. Change the name."
Speaking of Beck, a poll of his audience found that they want Sen. Ted Cruz to be the GOP presidential nominee in 2016. Ben Carson came in third and Allen West was in fourth, so that gives you some sense of how reasonable they are.
Rick Santorum says that Christians should welcome persecution:"[T]hey will hate you and persecute you because you stand for Him and what He taught. And that’s a great blessing, not something to be avoided but something to be embraced."
Laurie Higgins is not happy about the new "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie.
Neither is David Kyle Foster: "BDSM, anal intercourse (sodomy) or anything else that damages the body is a gross defilement of the marriage bed and God's intent. Any proctologist or urologist will tell you that anal intercourse always causes damage to the body of the recipient. It goes against the natural design of the body and is a breeding ground for disease ... Married couples who desire to be defiled in this way (whether by inflicting or in yielding to such mistreatment) need to be healed from an interior self-hatred, condemnation and probably a few other things. They need to seek inner healing and possibly even deliverance ministry. They need to repent of and renounce such activities and to seek God to expose the roots of such unholy desire."
There is a fundamental irony that lies at the heart of Glenn Beck's media empire, in that it operates under the banner "TruthLivesHere" while Beck himself continues to be a regular source of misinformation and falsehoods.
Nothing better demonstrates this fact that the opening of Beck's radio program yesterday where he declared that the current measles outbreak is a "hoax" designed increase government control, which he "proved" by reading from a piece posted on 21st Century Wire.
As Beck told it, "if you look at the 102 children in California who have been detected with measles, you look at where they came from, you see that the two cases came from 1) an Amish community and 2) a group of travelers who entered the U.S. from the Philippines. If you eliminate those two sources, there is no uptrend in measles."
Beck and co-host Pat Gray then went on to assert that even though immigrants from the Philippines are responsible for the measles outbreak, the media won't report that because their intention is "to make the case that you've got to obey the government" and get vaccinated.
"Do everything you can just to obey the government," Beck said:
As usual, apparently nobody within Beck's entire company could find five minutes to do some basic research on these claims, because if they had, they would have quickly realized that Beck's assertions were entirely wrong.
As the CDC explained, there was a large outbreak of measles "among unvaccinated Amish communities in Ohio" in 2014, but that outbreak started when "unvaccinated Amish missionaries traveled to the Philippines and returned with the virus."
The current measles outbreak has literally nothing to do with this 2014 incident and Beck's assertion that the current outbreak can be tied to "this Filipino family or group of travelers" is entirely false as it was not Filipino tourists who brought the disease into the U.S. but rather unvaccinated Amish missionaries who brought it back to the U.S. from the Philippines in April of last year!
Nothing better exemplifies the true absurdity of Beck's media empire than the fact that he opened his radio program yesterday by spreading utterly false information while alleging some sort of government conspiracy all while operating under the banner of "Truth Lives Here."
Seemingly bolstered by this showing, Lively announced today that he is considering running for Congress in a challenge to Democratic Rep. Richard Neal and intends to do so in order to stand in defense of Russia inside our government.
So now he hopes to serve in Congress in order to speak out against the "anti-Russian propaganda" that is "robbing social conservatives of their most valuable potential alliance in the world today":
There are a number of reasons why I would pursue Congress rather than a state office, but one of them is my interest in foreign policy and concern about the disastrous actions of the Obama administration around the world. I am posting an article below that closely reflects my views on one aspect of the problem.
I am especially concerned that the Neoconservatives (read Republican liberals) have aligned with the Obama administration re Russia and are jointly waging a campaign of anti-Russian propaganda designed to deceive conservatives into supporting a hot war with Russia.
This is a not only very dangerous game geopolitically, it is robbing social conservatives of their most valuable potential alliance in the world today. American and Russian conservatives could today be cooperating together to roll back liberalism around the world. Instead, the cultural Marxists of both major US political parties are trying to drive a wedge between us with the absurd lie that Russia is trying to revive the Soviet Union.
Neither Russia nor its president are without flaws, and it is as impossible to defend them against a campaign of relentless criticism as is is anyone else but Jesus Christ. That’s the psy-ops mind game the elite media plays: a rhetorical blitzkrieg of misrepresentations, double standards and sophistry.
But if we ask the simple question “Which countries of the world and their current leadership align most closely to the goals of Biblical Christianity and of ideological conservatism?” it’s a whole different ballgame.
If we rank the current leaders and countries of the world by that standard Putin and Russia rank high on the list — certainly much higher than Obama and his version of America. Indeed, is there any world leader speaking in defense of persecuted Christians in the Middle East like Putin has? Is there any other “first world” nation standing up against the homosexual agenda like Russia is doing?
