Mat Staver: Gay Marriage Is A 'Satanic Attack' On Marriage

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber declared that the push for gay marriage is literally satanic and will bring God's judgment down upon this nation.

"When you put two men together within the same-sex agenda," Staver said, "it is not about the institution of marriage; it is about having the protection, the legal status, it's about using that as a hammer to crush anyone who believes in objective reality, marriage reality, that it is the union of a man and a woman, anyone who believes in human sexuality between a man and a woman and that there are certain limits to moral boundaries that we shouldn't cross and that certain limits are on human sexuality. They literally want to ultimately destroy the institution [of marriage]. This is literally a satanic attack, in my view, and there's no question about it."

Barber, of course, readily agreed, saying that "the whole idea of marriage equality is nothing more than a push to gain the official government sanction on evil."

"It is unnatural, it is immoral, it is self-destructive and it is destructive to society," he added. "If our Supreme Court, if our government puts it stamp of approval on that which is evil, woe to our government ... Woe to our nation when God's judgment comes down upon a nation that calls evil good and good evil."

  • Good news: Creflo Dollar will be getting the $70 million private jet that he needs.
  • Cliff Kincaid explains that Joseph McCarthy "didn’t go far enough; the Marxist manipulation of culture was never examined in the detail that was required."
  • Monica Cole of AFA's One Million Moms demands that Fox cancel the new program "Lucifer" because "the show is not only disrespecting Christianity and mocking the Bible, but it can mess with people's eternity."
  • Steve McConkey of 4 Winds Christian Athletics warns that "sports hero Bruce Jenner, now supposedly Caitlyn, will open a floodgate of immorality that will affect Americans for generations to come. Jenner's decision will be exploited by the media and the education system throughout the world. Confused people will now have an adult transgender as a hero."
  • Finally, a proposed California law designed to protect women from being misled by "crisis pregnancy centers" apparently draws "striking parallels to the Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 and 1850."

Alex McFarland On Caitlyn Jenner's Transition: 'That's Demonic'

Right-wing Christian apologist Alex McFarland was brought on as a guest on AFA's "Today's Issues" radio program this morning to share his thoughts on the gender transition of Caitlyn Jenner, which he said was "demonic."

"God would not make us a certain way and then demand we not be that way," McFarland said. "When people have gender confusion, which is so prevalent in our country right now and the lines of gender have been blurred, that's not God. We don't blame that on God."

"Homosexuality, same-sex attraction, gender confusion is a means of trying to deal with pain," he continued. "I believe the whole transgender, someone trying to change their sexuality [sic], it's the ultimate form of moral relativism because it's saying, 'God, you have no control on me. God, you have no claim on my life, not even over my gender' ... When Bruce Jenner, he was on CNN a month ago, when he said that he's got the soul of a woman, that's demonic."

Barton: LGBT Activists Are 'Evangelizing' Public School Students To Recruit Them Into Homosexuality

On the "WallBuilders Live" radio program today, David Barton warned that LGBT rights activists are seeking to "evangelize" public school students in order to recruit them into homosexuality.

Reacting to reports that an elementary school in Maine had read "I Am Jazz," a book about a transgender child, to young students, Barton warned that this was part of an effort by LGBT activists to evangelize young kids into thinking that they are gay.

"This is evangelism," Barton said. "This is exactly how you evangelize. You raise questions. You give examples. You share stuff, you create relational stories. They're doing evangelism for transgenders."

Barton then went on to once again cite his favorite 19th century source to explain that this is exactly why homosexuality should be illegal.

"The simple answer goes back to a law book in 1814 is that folks like this, like homosexuals, they have to recruit kids," he said. "That's the only way they can keep their movement alive because adults don't go there. You have to recruit kids. And so that's why, back in 1814, they were explaining why we don't allow homosexuality, why our laws are against that, because you're evangelizing kids for that lifestyle."

Daubenmire Organizing 'Focused Prayer' Effort Aimed At Swinging Justice Kennedy's Gay Marriage Vote

Last month, a federal judge acquitted creationist tax scofflaw Kent Hovind of contempt of court and dismissed conspiracy and mail fraud charges against him and "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is pretty sure that it was the prayer effort organized by his "Salt and Light Brigade" that made the difference.

Fresh off of that victory, Daubenmire is now organizing a solemn assembly outside the Supreme Court on June 14 at which right-wing Christians will gather to repent for America and ask God to break through to Justice Anthony Kennedy so that he will vote against legalizing gay marriage.

As Daubenmire told radio host Chuck Wilder yesterday, his Salt and Light Brigade hopes to organize prayer rallies all over America to take place at the same time in order to "focus their guns at the same target" and "punch a hole in the heavenlies."

"We're going to have a solemn assembly of prayer and repentance, asking God, please God, help us rescue marriage," Daubenmire said. "And we're going to totally focus on Justice Kennedy, we believe he is the swing vote, and we're just going to ask the Lord to forgive us of our sins and turn the heart of Justice Kennedy that he might see the error of his ways and protect marriage."

Not everyone will be able to join Daubenmire outside the Supreme Court for this rally, he realizes, which is why he is asking for people to organize rallies of their own to take place at the same time in order to increase the power of their prayer effort, likening it to hundreds of people gathering with Super Soaker squirt guns and focusing their aim all on the same spot instead of just spraying in all directions.

"Concentrated, focused prayer" is what Daubenmire needs, he said. "We're going to focus all of our power in the same direction rather than just sporadically squirting our guns up in the air."

  • Sen. Lindsey Graham is the latest candidate to officially throw his hat into the ring for the 2016 GOP nomination.
  • Robert Jeffress wants to make it clear that God forbids people from playing the "Charlie Charlie Challenge."
  • On a related note, Brian Brown's CitizenGo has launched a petition calling upon Fox to cancel a new television show about Lucifer.
  • Dinesh D'Souza is now a free man.
  • Donald Trump humbly explains why he'll make a great presidential candidate: "I’m the most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far. Nobody’s ever been more successful than me."
  • Apparently a new poll showing that a majority of Americans describe themselves as "pro-choice" is actually good news for those who want to outlaw abortion.
  • Finally, Franklin Graham issues another dire warning about the possible legalization of gay marriage: "This is a pivotal moment in the history of our nation. If the nation's highest court decrees same-sex marriage as the law of the land, the consequences will be grave. It sets the stage for persecution of believers who are committed to the truth of Scripture. Can pastors preach against homosexuality without being accused of hate speech? Can Christian schools and colleges deny housing to same-sex couples and maintain their tax-exempt status? The ultimate danger, of course, is the devastating results of disobedience to God's Word. Continual blatant sexual immorality that shakes its arrogant, godless fist before Almighty God is a flashing red sign warning of the imminent disintegration of a culture."

Fischer On Caitlyn Jenner: 'I'm Never Going To Refer To Him As A She Because That Would Be A Lie'

Today, Vanity Fair released a preview of its forthcoming cover story the gender transition of Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) and Bryan Fischer is predictably outraged.

"If you want one snapshot of just how corrupt, how morally corrupt, how morally bent, how morally twisted, how morally confused, how morally bankrupt we have become, all you've got to do is take a look at the cover of Vanity Fair magazine," Fischer said on his radio program today.

"My heart, frankly, goes out to Bruce Jenner," he continued. "I'm not going to call him Caitlyn Jenner because that's not his name and I'm not going to refer to him as a she. He's a he. He's a he in every single solitary cell of his body, he will be until the day that God calls him home. So he's a male in every single cell of his body, so he's always going to be a he in the terminology that I'm going to use. I'm never going to refer to him as a she because that would be a lie."

Eventually, Fischer prayed that God would "clear up Bruce Jenner's sexual confusion" and "expose the lies of Satan and break their power over his mind" before declaring that he is taking this stance "because I don't want Bruce Jenner to go out and kill himself."

"Those of us that are saying this is not a good thing, those of us that are saying this is bad for Bruce Jenner, bad for his future, we are showing far more compassion to him than the editors of Vanity Fair," Fischer said. "They are showing no compassion for him, no genuine care for him because they are celebrating his progress down a pathway that could lead him to kill himself. I would suggest to you that there is absolutely zero compassion, zero love in aiding and abetting someone's mental illness, a mental illness that could drive them to self-destruction."

Beck: Rick Perry's 2011 Prayer Proclamation Ended Texas' Drought

Glenn Beck returned from vacation today and noted that upon his return flight back to Texas, he was astonished to see the extent of the flooding that devastated large parts of the state during his absence. After co-host Stu Burguiere mocked the idea that the flooding, or the preceding drought, could in any way be attributed to climate change, Beck noted that it was actually former Gov. Rick Perry's 2011 prayer proclamation that ended Texas' drought.

Beck explained that it had also rained nearly every day while he was on vacation at his ranch in Idaho, which he attributed to the fact that local residents began to fast for rain a few weeks ago.

"Five weeks ago, they had a fast for rain because they were in a drought," Beck said. "And it started raining five weeks ago."

Similarly, Beck said, the state of Texas began to work it way out of its drought after Perry prayed for rain back in 2011, which is a position shared by a number of other Religious Right activists.

"We started ending that drought with that fast," he said. "He was mocked for it and he went ahead and did it and that was the beginning of the end of the drought. We started having rain right after that, and this state was a desert."
