Beck: Obama's Gun Control Efforts Will Lead To More Suicides And 'Back Alley Medicine For People With Depression'

Glenn Beck was outraged by President Obama's executive action to expand background checks for gun buyers and predictably spent several minutes on his radio program today spinning out a conspiracy theory about how this will now lead to a new black market filled with doctors and psychiatrists who will refuse to cooperate with the new mandates.

Citing an announcement by the Department of Health and Human Services that it had removed "unnecessary legal barriers under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule" that had prevented states from reporting crucial information about individuals "who have been involuntarily committed to a mental institution or otherwise have been determined by a lawful authority to be a danger to themselves or others or to lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs" to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, Beck declared that Obama is really attempting to take guns away from anyone who seeks any sort of mental health treatment or even has a family member who seeks treatment for something like ADD.

Of course, the HHS explicitly explained that "seeking help for mental health problems or getting treatment does not make someone legally prohibited from having a firearm, and nothing in this proposed rule changes that," but Beck didn't care, instead insisting that this change will lead to people refusing to seek treatment for mental health issues, which will in turn lead to more suicides and create a black market for mental health treatment.

"Now, if you're a gun owner and you know that the government is going to find out that your son or daughter or you or your wife, they're going in for medication for depression or whatever," Beck asserted, "and you know that once that's reported, the government will come in and take your guns, how many people are going to say, 'No, no, no, let's not go to a doctor.'"

"You're going to see depression, suicide and everything else" skyrocket, Beck claimed. "Think of the things now that this is going to create black markets for. Black market doctors; this will become back alley medicine for people with depression, people with kids who are having problems, they will look for doctors who will not report anything. This is nuts. Absolutely nuts."

Gordon Klingenschmitt Says Gays Are Driven By A 'Demonic Spirit Of Lust' To Persecute Christians

Gordon Klingenschmitt is outraged by a Massachusetts court decision finding that a Catholic school discriminated against a man when it rescinded a job offer to him after learning that he was gay and married, declaring that the lawsuit demonstrates that gay people are driven by a "demonic spirit of lust" to persecute Christians.

The Colorado Republican lawmaker said on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program yesterday that the lawsuit shows that "there is a demonic spirit here of persecution against the church" and that gay people do not simply want to be left alone but rather are intent on "coming after the church."

"They're coming after us," Klingenschmitt warned. "They don't care about the First Amendment. They don't care about the Constitution. They just want power. And this is not about sexuality any more, it's about power and that's a demonic spirit of lust; not just lust for another man, but lust for power over the Christian people who yearn to breathe free":

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/4/16

Gordon Klingenschmitt Blames Demonic Influence For Failure To Defund Planned Parenthood

On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program recently, Colorado state lawmaker and Religious Right activist Gordon Klingenschmitt blamed the "demonic spirit of murder" for congressional failure to defund Planned Parenthood.

"Did you know there is also a spiritual world that is influencing these key players?" Klingenschmitt asked. "When the evil spirit, the spirit of Satan influences people to sin and the people humanly choose sin, they're listening to and cooperating with and collaborating with and contracting with that evil spirit who gets inside of them and becomes manifest through their behavior."

"So you see the invisible spirits, the Holy Spirit of God with his angels and the demonic spirits are speaking to each of these human actors in this scenario," he continued, "and we can discern, for example, upon those who promote a pro-abortion agenda the demonic spirit of murder who is influencing them and forcing us, as taxpayers, to collaborate with them to fund the killing of innocent children and that is wrong and that is evil and that is demonic."

Scott Lively Begs For Money And Calls For Passage Of Russian-Style Anti-Gay Laws Around The World

Anti-gay activist Scott Lively closed out 2015 by publishing a couple of open letters to his fellow anti-gay activists begging for money and urging them to join him in pushing to the passage of Russian-style anti-gay laws in America and elsewhere.

Lively bragged that he is being targeted by gay activists because his Abiding Truth Ministries is "one of the most feared and hated pro-family organizations in the world ... because we know more about the history, strategies and tactics of their movement than just about anyone on our side." The downside of being so "feared" is that he is now facing a lawsuit stemming from his anti-gay activism in Uganda, which is why Lively was begging for donations:

My friends, SMUG v Lively is truly a David v Goliath battle. I’m running a one-man office on a shoestring budget of less than $120,000 per year, provided almost entirely by donations of $50 and $100 from average people. Our donor base is small, mostly elderly, and very difficult to expand due to the success of the anti-Lively propaganda. While Liberty Counsel has been funding our legal defense, this lawsuit has nevertheless caused us major financial hardship and seriously threatens our future.

Frankly, I question whether ATM will survive the decade without greater support from the individuals scattered across the society who recognize the danger of the LGBT agenda and are willing to stand with us financially against it. That can only happen if the people who already support us encourage their like-minded friends and allies to donate to us. 

In a separate "letter to the international pro-family movement," Lively declared that "the Leaders and Activists of the LGBT movement are malicious deceivers and evil-doers, deliberately subverting civilized society and viciously attacking all opponents to advance their selfish and self-destructive interests" and called for anti-gay activists to focus on preventing the passage of antidiscrimination ordinances that protect sexual orientation in places where they don't already exist and repealing them where they do. 

Lively went on to recommend that his fellow anti-gay activists likewise work to pass Russian-style laws banning gay "propaganda" in America and around the world:

We need to build international pro-family solidarity on a foundation of genuine moral authority, meaning it must rest on the premise that homosexuality itself is personally and socially harmful, and not pretend that our only social and political interests are the "welfare of children" or the "definition of marriage." That pretense is a product of the same diseased pro-family "leadership" that marched the American pro-family movement from one disastrous defeat to the next for the past three decades, and it is now being exported to the rest of the world by the same men.

The beauty of the Russian law is it cuts right to the heart of the real problem of LGBT advocacy: the recruitment of children. What I mean by recruitment of children is not primarily the sexual exploitation of young people by adult homosexuals, though that represents a dark current within the larger “gay” culture, especially among the men. What I mean is the normalization of homosexual conduct and culture to children and youths, leading them to engage in homosexual experimentation among themselves and subsequently self-identify as "gay." An entire generation of American, British and Canadian children has been enslaved to this corrupt culture and ideology through the very propaganda that Russia has now banned.

While numerous countries of the African continent have chosen a much stricter approach, seeking to deter all homosexual conduct through harsh criminal sanctions, the Russian law balances the privacy rights of adult homosexuals (who choose to live discretely outside the mainstream of society) with the need of the nation to protect its children from the ravages of sexual perversion. It deters the LGBT lobby from attempting to mainstream the "gay" lifestyle, while granting the individual members of its community the "right to be left alone" that was the original stated goal of their movement in its early years, before it adopted the militant fascist tactics it is known for today.

Bryan Fischer Says Dinosaurs Were Just Giant, 1,000-Year-Old Lizards

On his radio program today, Bryan Fisher laid out his theory about where dinosaurs came from, explaining that they were simply lizards that grew very large because they lived for 1,000 years.

As Fischer explained, prior to Noah's flood, the average human lifespan was 912 years, so logically the lifespans of animals and reptiles and the like were also much longer during this period. And since reptiles continue to grow until they die, Fischer said, it stands to reason that a lizard that lived for 1,000 years would eventually grow to be the size of a dinosaur.

Asserting that there is "no reason to doubt" the Bible when it says that Methuselah lived for 969 years, Fischer declared that if some salamanders today can live for hundreds of years and grow to be several feet in length, then obviously lizards before the flood could live for a thousand years and grow even larger. 

"I'm thinking that could be the explanation for dinosaurs," he said. "They were just like reptiles that just like grew for a 1,000 years, kept growing, kept growing, kept growing."
