Right Wing Round-Up - 7/7/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 7/7/14

  • Joe Biden is "the Vice President of Gomorrah."
  • Alveda King says that "while we were marching in the sixties, a place was being prepared for us at Planned Parenthood. We were trying to get off the back of the bus, and they were going to have a space for us in the front of the abortion mill."
  • James Dobson's Family Talk "is excited to officially announce the creation of a partnership with the American Association of Christian Counselors."
  • Religious Right groups are not happy that the Freedom From Religion Foundation was allowed to run an ad decrying the Hobby Lobby ruling in the New York Times.
  • Finally, Robert Oscar Lopez rails against allowing same-sex couples to adopt children: "Same-sex parenting is an abusive practice whereby two gay adults contrive to deprive a helpless child of the love and support of a mother or father."

Klingenschmitt: Atheists Should Undergo An Exorcism To Rid Them Of The Devil So They'll Feel Comfortable In Church

Back in 2012, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against a Wisconsin school district that had been holding its graduation ceremonies in a local church, declaring that doing so "conveys an impermissible message of endorsement." The school district appealed the decision to the Supreme Court which, last month, declined to hear the case.

Gordon Klingenschmitt, who is currently the Republican candidate for a state house seat in Colorado, weighed in on the Supreme Court's refusal to hear this case on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program where he offered a novel solution: atheists who don't want to attend their public school graduation in a church should just undergo an exorcism to rid them of the Devil so that they'll be comfortable attending church and "free to enjoy the worship of Jesus Christ."

"If the atheist complainer is so uncomfortable when they walk into a church that there's something inside of them squirming and making them feel these feelings of hatred toward the cross of Jesus Christ," Klingenschmitt said, "don't you think it's something inside of the atheist complainer that's wrong?"

"I have a solution," he continued. "Let's do an exorcism and cast the Devil out of them and then they'll feel comfortable when they walk into church":

Barber: Hobby Lobby Decision 'Bodes Very Well' For Christians Who Want To Discriminate Against Gays

In the wake of the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision, Miranda noted how anti-gay activists were excited by the prospect that the decision had set a precedent that could now be used to exempt Christian businesses from having to comply with anti-discrimination laws when it comes to issues like gay marriage.

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber addressed exactly this issue, saying that he is hopeful that anti-gay Christians will now have a solid defense when they refuse to "be an indentured servant" by providing services to "a counterfeit gay marriage" because this ruling was "a strong rebuke of all those sexual orientation laws around the country in cities and municipalities and states that say somehow gays win, Christians lose, sexual orientation trumps all."

"This decision, if you read between the lines," Barber asserted, "it says religious freedom is sacrosanct, including for the business owner."

Saying that nowhere in the Constitution does it say that Christians are required to participate in sin by providing services for a gay wedding that mocks God, Barber believes that this decision "sends a strong signal" that religious liberty is protected by the Constitution and by law while sexual orientation is not.

"Clearly the First Amendment and RFRA, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, read through the prism of this decision," Barber said, "I believe bodes very well for Christians who say 'we will not partake and give any recognition to fake same-sex marriage'":

Matt Barber Celebrates The Fourth Of July By Warning That America Is On The Verge Of Judgment

On Friday's installment of the "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Matt Barber said that he would be celebrating Independence Day by praying that God will withhold His judgment from this nation because America is on the verge of total destruction.

As co-host Mat Staver explained, our entire system of government was built upon the self-evident fact that God exists, declaring this to be so obvious that "any idiot" ought to be able to see it, just as everyone knows that the sun rises in the East.

"The fact that there is a God who's a creator and we are endowed by these liberties," Staver said, "is self-evident truth."

Barber agreed, warning that "we are either in judgment as a nation or approaching judgment as a nation because we have, as a nation and our nation's leadership has turned its back on God and the Judeo-Christian principles of our founding."

Paraphrasing Ruth Graham, Barber then said that if God doesn't destroy America, He'll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah, adding that he was going to spend his Independence Day focusing on the hope that America will fall to its knees and pray in order to turn away God's inevitable hand of judgment:

Right Wing Round-Up - 7/3/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 7/3/14

  • Erik Rush says that "for all intents and purposes, Barack Obama is ISIS.
  • Apparently, the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision was a win for women.
  • FRC praises God for the Hobby Lobby decision: "Praise God for hearing our prayers, for the Court upholding religious liberty and for protecting us from very real tyranny. May He contend on behalf of the other organizations and their court challenges."
  • Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics says that blacks are still not free and "they'll never be free as long as abortion remains legal, because it was created as an instrument to get rid of them to begin with."
  • Finally, we can't imagine that the Religious Right is going to be happy about a new biography suggesting that Dietrich Bonhoeffer was gay, especially given their obsession with comparing themselves to him.

Barton: Harry Reid Supports Citizens United Amendment Because He Is An 'Atheist Mormon'

Ever since Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., proposed a constitutional amendment designed to restore to Congress and state governments the ability to regulate the raising and spending of money in elections, Republicans and conservatives have absurdly been decrying it as an effort to gut the First Amendment.

On today's "WallBuilders Live" radio program, David Barton attacked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for supporting this amendment, saying that his support for it proves that Reid is "an atheist Mormon" who doesn't realize that he will one day have to answer to God for trampling all over our God-given rights:

Barton: He has actually proposed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would re-write the First Amendment to take away original protections and limit the protections in the First Amendment.

...

What it also tells me is, and he's apparently a Mormon guy, that's fine. He is probably an atheist Mormon, Mormon in name only and the reason I say that is that so many Mormon folks are so conservative on the Constitution and such great defenders ... And so, when you look at what he's doing, the Bill of Rights is laid out in the Declaration of Independence, you start with the first belief that there's a Creator, the second belief that the Creator gives us certain inalienable rights, the third belief in the Declaration is that government exists to protect those rights inalienable rights.

So eleven years later when the Founding Fathers did the Bill of Rights they said, hey, these are those rights that we were talking about that the government is not allowed to touch because these come from the Creator and government exists to protect rights from the Creator. So that's why we've never messed with the Bill of Rights because they were always off limits to government because they came from God directly to man, they did not go through government to get here.

...

If you don't have the belief that you will answer to God for what you do, you will sell your country, you will sell your kids' future, you will sell everything going on and that's where we're getting.  And so it's not just a belief in God, it's the belief that you answer to God and you believe that, and see that's where Harry Reid is not. You know, he may believe in God, he probably says he does; I don't think he has any cognizance of having to answer to God for what he does.

Klingenschmitt Promotes Debunked Claim To Warn That 'Disarming Veterans Is A Form Of National Suicide'

Last year, a conservative blogger riled-up a bunch of folks on the Right by claiming that the Department of Veterans Affairs was unilaterally declaring some veterans to be mentally incompetent and thereby prohibiting them from buying or possessing guns.

The claim was so baseless that none other than Twitchy quickly debunked it but, amazingly, well over a year later, Gordon Klingenschmitt reported the original story as entirely true on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program this week, declaring that efforts to disarm veterans amounts to "national suicide."

"What is the Second Amendment designed to protect," Klingenschmitt asked, "but American national security. And if troops who are retired or no longer in the active duty military, they go home and they're disarmed, then America will be defenseless."

We are not quite sure how disarming mentally incompetent veterans would leave America "defenseless" considering that America would still have, you know, the strongest military in the world.

Cindy Jacobs Has A Long Record Of Preventing Terrorist Attacks. Just Ask Her

Last week we noted that "respected prophet" Cindy Jacobs had issued an urgent prophetic warning that a massive 9/11-like terrorist attack against America was in the works. Now she has released a "prophetic update" video about this possible attack in which she recounted a variety of times when her prayers stopped various terrorist attacks from happening, as with the case in Dallas and the May Day prayer rally that stopped a bombing in Times Square.

In the video, Jacobs also revealed that she had been given a word about a possible attack on the Naval Yard in Washington, DC shortly before the shooting in 2013 which, thanks to Jacobs' prayers, "didn't take out as many people as it could have."

It seems that Jacobs has stopped so many terrorist attacks that she can't even keep them all straight any more, as she also recalled the time when she woke up in the middle of the night because "there's somebody getting on a plane in London and they're going to try to blow up the plane" and so she prayed and ultimately stopped the attack that was to be carried out by shoe bomber Richard Reed.

Reed, for the record, was traveling from Paris, not London:
