Klingenschmitt: Candidates Who Manifest The 'Spirit Of God' Will Always Win Election 'Unless The People Are Evil'

On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program yesterday, Colorado Republican state legislator Gordon Klingenschmitt hailed the election of Matt Bevin as governor in Kentucky last week, declaring that voters will always elected godly candidates ... unless, that is, the voters are evil.

"Congratulations, governor-elect," Klingenschmitt said, "for manifesting and representing the spirit of God in your campaign. People, when they see God inside of a candidate, they will vote for him every time because people are drawn to the spirit of God."

"When people see true freedom in the heart of a candidate, he can always win an election," Klingenschmitt continued. "Unless the people are evil, and then they will vote against the spirit of God that is in him."

Fischer: 'The Last Place We Are Going To Want To Put A Child Is In A Lesbian Household'

Recently, a judge in Utah ordered that a foster child be removed from a home with two lesbian parents and placed with a heterosexual couple on the grounds that "kids in homosexual homes don’t do as well as they do in heterosexual homes."

Predictably, Bryan Fischer came rushing to that judge's defense on his radio program today, declaring that "no culture would ever want to adopt policies that are harmful, dangerous and risky to children."

"That means we should never countenance policies that place children in same-sex households, whether it's foster care or whether it is adoption," he said.

Fischer also came out against single-parent adoptions as well, before citing Mark Regnerus' repeatedly debunked study to claim that children raised by lesbians are 10 times more likely to be sexually abused.

"The risk of sexual abuse, unwanted sexual touching, is 10 times higher in a lesbian household than in a heterosexual household," he said. "So if we care about the sexual purity, the sexual integrity of our children, which I do, then the last place we are going to want to put a child is in a lesbian household."

"So good for this judge," he concluded. "I am 100 percent standing behind him."

Gordon Klingenschmitt: Hurricane Gordon Was A Sign Of God's Support For Me

Gordon Klingenschmitt, a Republican state legislator from Colorado and Religious Right activist, spoke at a "Prayer For Our Warriors Conference" at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Arizona recently, the same event at which fellow right-wing pastor Rick Scarborough declared that God would give us the cure for AIDS if only this nation would repent for tolerating homosexuality. 

For his part, Klingenschmitt dedicated his speech to recounting his battle back in 2006 when he was a Navy chaplain over supposedly being prevented from praying in the name of Jesus while serving in his official capacity, for which he was eventually court-martialed. (In reality, he was disciplined for appearing in uniform at a political rally.)

As Klingenschmitt explained in his remarks, he intentionally violated Navy policy and then brought it to the attention of his superiors, only to find out that the Navy was initially willing to just give him a slap on the wrist and allow him to return to his job. But Klingenschmitt wanted to be a martyr and so he insisted on receiving a full court-martial and being put on trial for his actions, which is exactly what he received ... and was then found guilty. 

But even though he lost his case in court, Klingenschmitt knows that he won his case in Heaven because "on 14 September, 2006, the same day I was literally found guilty of worshiping in public in a Virginia Beach courtroom, 1,000 miles off the Virginia coastline, Hurricane Gordon is swelling at full strength."

"My first name is Gordon," Klingenschmitt helpfully explained in case anyone missed the significance. "Glory to God! Hallelujah! God is doing signs and wonders in the heavens."

Robertson: Gay-Friendly Churches Are A Sign Of 'The Last Stage Of Gentile World Apostasy'

On "The 700 Club" today, Pat Robertson declared that the existence of gay-friendly churches is a sign that we have reached the "last stage of Gentile world apostasy."

Robertson was responding to a question from a viewer who wanted to know how someone who is gay could consider themselves to be a Christian, saying that such a person must be "misguided and a hypocrite."

"There have been gay churches for many years," Robertson responded. "They have communion, they do all kinds of things, they have gay pastors and so forth and they'll tell you that, yes, they love Jesus and all this. The truth is, if you read Romans, the last stage of Gentile world apostasy has to do with rampant homosexuality."

This is the point we have currently reached, Robertson added, and "it's a shame."

Irony Alert: Mat Staver Says Annise Parker Ought To Resign If She Can't Fulfil Her Elected Duties

Ever since the Supreme Court struck down state gay marriage bans back in June, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel has been leading the legal fight on behalf of Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who ultimately went to jail for repeatedly refusing to allow her office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. 

Saying that Davis has been raised up by God to take a stand against gay marriage, Staver has repeatedly dismissed arguments that Davis should resign from her elected position if she cannot or will not carry out its basic duties, so we were rather surprised to hear Staver declare that Houston mayor Annise Parker ought to resign from her position if she is unhappy that voters recently repealed the city's non-discrimination ordinance.

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Staver's cohost Matt Barber asserted that Parker was so upset by the election results that she is now essentially urging companies to boycott her own city, prompting Staver to, without irony, declare that Parker ought to simply resign and "let somebody else do" the job if she feels that she cannot represent the "taxpayers and citizens" that she was elected to serve. 

"That is like a CEO of a company who says you need to boycott our company," Staver said, "stop buying products from our company because we have a policy that I, the CEO, don't agree with even though the board of directors has ultimately voted for this policy, so stop patronizing our company. Well, you know what, if that's what your feeling is, resign from the company. Mayor, if you want people to boycott Houston, why don't you just resign and let somebody else who wants to run the mayor's office and represent the city of Houston and all of the taxpayers and citizens of Houston? Why don't you just let someone else do it because, frankly, you haven't been doing a very good job."

Rick Scarborough: AIDS Is God's Judgment, But We'd Find A Cure If America Would Repent

Vision America's Rick Scarborough spoke at a "Prayer For Our Warriors Conference" at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Arizona recently, where he reiterated his view that AIDS is God's judgment for sin and declared that we'd probably be able to find a cure for the disease if this nation would simply repent for tolerating homosexuality.

Earlier in his remarks, Scarborough complained that we at People For the American Way regularly monitor his speeches and blasted our founder, Normal Lear, for having established an organization that has supposedly "subverted the truth" by regularly attacking "those of us who stand for God and country without apology."

Apparently, in Scarborough's world, standing for God and country takes the form of declaring that AIDS "was God's judgment on a sinful generation."

"I believe that God would probably give us the cure for AIDS today," he stated, "if we put our foot down and said, 'We not longer tolerate this, we're not going to fund it with healthcare, we're going to hold you accountable.' I believe if we started repenting across this country, some sharp probably Christian or Jewish researcher would find the AIDS cure."

Scarborough also noted that since his comments were probably being monitored by PFAW, this statement would most likely be the only thing that we would report on from his speech.

And guess what? 

He was absolutely right:

Cruz: 'Any President Who Doesn't Begin Every Day On His Knees Isn't Fit To Be Commander-In-Chief Of This Nation'

Ted Cruz was the third Republican presidential candidate to appear at the "National Religious Liberties Conference" in Iowa yesterday, an event organized by extremist right-wing pastor Kevin Swanson, who earlier in the program proclaimed that, according to the Bible, "the sin of homosexuality ... is worthy of death."

Swanson introduced Cruz by stating that Jesus Christ "is king of the President of the United States whether he will admit it or not and that president should submit to His rule and to His law" before asking Cruz to share his opinion on how important it is for "the President of the United States to fear God."

Cruz, predictably, asserted that fear of God is absolutely vital, declaring that "any president who doesn't begin every day on his knees isn't fit to be commander-in-chief of this nation."

If Kevin Swanson's Son Got Gay Married, 'I'd Sit In Cow Manure And I'd Spread It All Over My Body'

After interviewing both Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal at his "National Religious Liberties Conference" this morning, radical right-wing pastor Kevin Swanson returned to the stage to discuss the issue of how Christians are to live in an increasingly debased and secular society.

During his remarks, Swanson reiterated his view that both the Old and New Testament require the death penalty for the crime of homosexuality, as well as his position that any Christian who attends a gay wedding can only do so in order to hold up a sign informing the couple that they ought to be put to death.

He drove home his point with a passionate declaration that if he ever found out that his own sons was gay and that son invited him to his wedding, he would show up covered in "sackcloth and ashes" and then smear himself in cow manure as he sat on the steps of the church and wailed lamentations.

"There are families, we're talking Christian families, pastors' families, elders' families from good, godly churches," Swanson said, "whose sons are rebelling, hanging out with homosexuals and getting married and the parents are invited. What would you do if that was the case? Here is what I would do: sackcloth and ashes at the entrance to the church and I'd sit in cow manure and I'd spread it all over my body. That is what I would do and I'm not kidding, I'm not laughing."

"I'm grieving, I'm mourning, I'm pointing out the problem," Swanson screamed as he went off about people trying to "carve happy faces on the sores" of a society that is utterly "messed up."

Here is Swanson stating his belief that the Bible, in both the Old and New Testaments, declares that the punishment for homosexuality is to be death:

Kevin Swanson: Liberals 'Are, By Definition, Tyrants!'

Kevin Swanson kicked off his "National Religious Liberties Conference" in Iowa today — which is to feature GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal — with an hour long rant that was every bit as unhinged as one would expect from a radical right-wing preacher who advocates putting gays to death and who thinks that Disney movies are turning young girls into lesbians.

At one point, Swanson fumed about new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's support for marijuana legalization, declaring that it is all a plot to increase the size of the government.

"This is what liberals do best," Swanson bellowed. "This is their agenda. They are, by definition, tyrants!"

Later in his sermon, Swanson fumed over the existence of LGBT groups in public schools while waving his Bible over his head and declaring that "I've got the authority to bind by the tyrants."

"Governments achieve power and then they corrupt it," he stated. "They centralize control and then they turn it towards depravity and perversions ... That's what the liberals do! They centralize the power of the Babel state and they've done it again and again and again for 100 years. But why? Why do they do it? They centralize in order to pervert it. They centralize education and before long they're kicking God out in the 1960s and bringing the [Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network] clubs in ... selling the gay and lesbian to as many six- and seven-year-olds as possible."

Fischer: Obama Would Imprison All Conservative Christians 'If He Had His Way'

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer declared that President Obama would toss all conservative Christians into prison if he could get away with it.

Responding to a caller who asserted that the Justice Department's plan to release 6,000 non-violent drug offenders from federal prisons was being done in order to make room for the imprisonment of Christians, Fischer said that he had no doubt that that is exactly what Obama would love to do.

"I think that is where we would go if he had his way," Fischer said. "I honestly do. I believe that is where we would wind up, if he could do what he wanted to do without any kind of restriction, he would lock people up who disagree with him, and that's us. Conservative Christians are the ones who have the biggest problem; he's pro-abortion, he is pro-sodomy and those are the great moral issues of our day. We're against them and he doesn't like our dissent, he doesn't like the disagreement and he would be perfectly willing to use incarceration as a tool to shut us up."

Shoebat: 'Cannibalism And Homosexuality And Rape Are All Interconnected'

Yesterday, Theodore Shoebat posted a new video proclaiming that if murder and cannibalism were not against the law, "the fags would be doing it all the time."

Citing a series of papers released recently by the American Psychological Association that suggest that "rates of military sexual trauma among men who served in the military may be as much as 15 times higher than has been previously reported," Shoebat declared that gay soldiers are committing tens of thousands of sexual assaults every year and would even engage in cannibalism if they could get away with it.

"Homosexuality and violence are interconnected. Homosexuality and rape are interconnected," he said. "Cannibalism and homosexuality and rape are all interconnected. Now, are all sodomites committing cannibalism? No, but they want to. If it wasn't for the law against cannibalism and murder and all that, the fags would be doing it all the time. There's absolutely no doubt in my mind about all this."

Beck: Ted Cruz 'Was Truly Raised Up For This Purpose At This Time'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck revealed that a documentary about Ted Cruz was being filmed for the GOP hopeful's presidential campaign at Beck''s television studio in Texas last week and Beck was so moved by what he saw that he simply had to interrupt its production so that he could tell everyone involved that Cruz has been supernaturally raised up at this moment in time to save this nation.

"I interrupted the director," Beck said, "and I looked at the audience and I said, 'Maybe this is me, but is anybody feeling what I'm feeling?' That this man was born at this time — it was with him and his dad — was born at this time and the parallels between Barack Obama and his father, who shaped him and shaped him as a Marxist, and Rafael Cruz, who was a Marxist ... but then he raised this boy up?"

"Is anybody else feeling this?" he continued. "That this guy was truly raised up for this purpose at this time? Everybody in the audience said yes. There is something to Ted Cruz way beyond, and when you get to know his story and his father's story, there is something really unique and special about that story."

Gee, we imagine that the other GOP candidates must just be clamoring to attend an "unbiased" presidential debate hosted by someone like Beck while he is openly proclaiming that one of their rivals was "raised up for this purpose at this time."

Theodore Shoebat: Everyone At Chick-fil-A Should Be Burned At The Stake

Theodore Shoebat is outraged that a Chick-fil-A franchise was listed as a sponsor of a "faith-based LGBT film festival" in Tennessee and has responded in a typically reasonable manner by demanding that everyone who works at Chick-fil-A be put to death.

As he explained in a video he posted yesterday, it was not just an isolated franchise that sponsored this "fag fest" but rather it is now company policy to spit in the faces of Christians because "Chick-fil-A does not worship God, Chick-fil-A worships mammon, they worship the devil."

"What does Saint Paul tell us about homosexuality in Romans 1?," Shoebat asked. "He tells us that it is worthy of death. Not only those who commit the act, but all those who support them or take pleasure in them. This is what the Bible says. And what is Saint Paul trying to tell us? Homosexuals are worthy of death and those who support them are worthy of death. So all the people at Chick-fil-A, all the CEOs, the people who are calling the shots at Chick-fil-A, you're all worthy of death and, in a righteous society, you would be burned at the stake."

And even if the folks at Chick-fil-A do not receive their due punishment in this world, he added, they most certainly will when they face "the great general in Heaven, Jesus Christ" who will destroy them for having sided with the Antichrist.

Fischer: Two Percent Of Gay Soldiers Are Responsible For Thousands Of Sexual Assaults Per Year

Today, the American Psychological Association released a series of papers reporting that "rates of military sexual trauma among men who served in the military may be as much as 15 times higher than has been previously reported, largely because of barriers associated with stigma, beliefs in myths about male rape, and feelings of helplessness."

Predictably, this has been seized upon by Bryan Fischer as proof that the small percentage of gay men in the military are responsible for tens of thousands of sexual assaults every year.

Ignoring clear statement from the reports themselves that it is a myth to claim "that male rape is homosexual sex and therefore, that only homosexual men get raped and only homosexual men perpetrate rape," Fischer insisted on his radio program today that gay men are committing these thousands of sexual assaults because they are inherently violent.

"One of the pathologies that is associated with the homosexual lifestyle is violence and sexual assault," he said. "It's a characteristic of sexual activity in that community."

Asserting that 14,000 men and 12,000 women the military were sexually assaulted in 2013, Fischer proclaimed that "despite the fact that homosexuals comprise just a tiny sliver of our population, maybe two per cent of the population," those "two per cent of the males in the military are responsible for more sexual assaults of males than all of the heterosexual men in the military."

Louie Gohmert Suggests A Congressional Study Putting Gay And Straight Couples On An Island To 'See Which One Nature Favors'

Last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert delivered the convocation at Liberty University, where he repeated his call for a study in which straight couples and gay and lesbian couples are placed on separate deserted islands in order to prove that homosexuality is unnatural.

Gohmert was complaining about the Supreme Court's marriage equality decision and was attempting to make the case that even people who don't believe in God ought to be able to see that same-sex relationships are not natural.

"Let's just take a totally secular approach to this," he said. "Congress is good about having studies; how about if we take four heterosexual couples and put them on an island where they have everything they need to live and exist and we take four couples of just men and put them on an island where they have all they need to survive and then let's take four couples of just women and put them on an island and then lets come back in 100 years and see which one nature favors."

What Could We Expect From A GOP Debate Organized By Glenn Beck?

A few weeks ago, Glenn Beck floated the idea of launching a temporary church for the express purpose of exploiting a Republican National Committee loophole that allows churches to host "discussion forums" with Republican presidential candidates since the RNC was refusing to allow his network to host any sort of official GOP debate. 

As Beck made clear at the time, he didn't want to invite Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Donald Trump or any of the other candidates whom he dismisses as "progressives" to participate in his debate because he despises them and has repeatedly and openly attacked them on air. In fact, Beck despises the Republican Party as a whole and has, for years, been urging his audience to "defund the GOP" and refuse to give the party even one dime of support in an effort to break its back and destroy it.

Now, in the wake of the RNC's decision to cancel an upcoming debate that was to be hosted by NBC after its candidates performed miserably at a CNBC debate last month, Beck is demonstrating his trademark consistency and integrity by sending a letter to the RNC begging to be allowed to host this debate on his own network instead:

We’d like to make our audience your audience, by hosting the ninth scheduled debate on February 26th. We are prepared to produce a new kind of debate, in both substance and distribution. In fact, this will be the first truly cross-platform, digitally engaged debate in the history of American politics, and one that we are confident will reach one of the largest blocks of conservative voters in history.


By selecting TheBlaze TV to produce this debate, you honor and recognize the value of a critical voting bloc. And you need to know that we are committed to a fair and honorable production that will make every candidate, the party and our voters proud. But most important, at the end of our debate, voters will know not just where our candidates stand, but why, and how they intend to accomplish their goals. 

We both know that the time for theatrics and hyperbole is over. These are serious days full of both promise and peril. My audience and I urge the Republican National Committee to make the February 26th debate meaningful, thoughtful, and responsive to the issues of not just conservative America, but to all Americans. Placing this debate on TheBlaze TV will fulfill that promise.

Aside from the insanity of allowing an avowed enemy of the GOP and a significant number of the current Republican candidates to host an official Republican debate, we cannot even begin to imagine what a debate hosted by a unhinged conspiracy theorist like Beck would even look like.

Would candidates be asked what they would do to stop that sociopath and dictator President Obama from fomenting revolution in order to round up conservatives and stick them in internment camps? Or about Beck's concerns that Obama is trying to start a race-based civil war and has been seeking to confiscate weapons in order to re-impose slavery and eventually start killing American citizens?

Would they be asked to go on record vowing to stop revolutionaries from pulling people from their cars and executing them in the streets and from secretly murdering Beck himself in the middle of the night?

Will they be expected to comment on Beck's belief that this nation is "the stink on the crap pile" and that it is has now become a badge of "eternal dishonor" to be an American because our society has gone completely insane and become a danger to the entire world?

Would they have to weigh in on his theory that the missing Malaysian airplane had been hijacked for use in a terrorist attack against America, his warning that immigrants crossing the southern border would lead to an Israeli/Palestinian-type of conflict in the U.S, or his conviction that a measles outbreak was nothing but a "hoax" designed to increase government control?

Would they be asked if they share Beck's conviction that Common Core is the "biggest story in American history" because it is an evil plot to turn school children into cogs living under a police state?

Will they be asked what they think about the Associated Press having raped Bill Cosby, or about how the Ebola outbreak caused race riots all over the nation, or how the government engaged in a massive cover-up of the truth about the Boston Marathon bombing?

On the other hand, can the RNC risk stiffing Beck when he is a prophet who has been sent by God, especially at a time when America has become engaged in full-fledged demon worship and our days are numbered because society has gone insane and been engulfed in darkness?

In retrospect, perhaps a GOP debate led by Beck is exactly what this nation needs, given that his audience, after all, is the modern day civil rights movement and consists of the very people forseen by God and the Founding Fathers who would one day rise up and save this nation.

Gordon Klingenschmitt Has A 'Scientific Method' That Proves The Existence Of God

On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program recently, Colorado Republican state Rep. Gordon Kilngenschmitt offered up a scientific test that can prove the existence of God once and for all. 

Responding to a recent interview in which atheist Richard Dawkins said that he would change his mind about the existence of God as soon as someone shows him some evidence, Klingenschmitt eagerly took up the challenge.

"You want evidence of God?," he asked. "I can give you evidence of God. In fact, I'll show you God; all you've got to do is repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and invite him to come into your heart. Now this is a scientific method. I'm giving you step A: you repent; step B: you believe; step C: you invite Jesus Christ to come into your heart as Lord and Savior. Follow that scientific method and I guarantee you will see Jesus Christ."

Those who refuse to follow this "scientific method," Klingenschmitt explained, will never discover the proof of God's existence because they have have not "followed the method that works."

"You want evidence? I'll give you evidence," he said, "but you've got to do what Christ commands."

Rep. Forbes: There Is A Massive Conspiracy Afoot Aimed At 'Killing And Destroying Faith In America Today'

Last month, Republican Rep. Randy Forbes preached at his home church in Chesapeake, Virginia, where he warned that there is a massive and terrifying conspiracy at work to completely eliminate religion from public life.

Forbes was preaching as part of an effort known as Pray USA, which is an initiative of the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation that seeks to encourage government officials to lead congregations in prayer and then urge churchgoers to add their names to its "Prayer for America Proclamation."

During his sermon, Forbes told the congregation that the government has grown increasingly hostile to religion in America in an effort to systematically expunge it from the "marketplace of ideas" and that this development has not come about by accident or naturally; rather, it has all been orchestrated by a vast, well-funded conspiracy.

"Let me just tell you one of the myths that's out there," he said. "It's easy for us to somehow just think that all of this just evolved because people on the internet, they're reading more and they're getting more intellectual and somehow or the other, it's like they've discovered the world isn't flat anymore and therefore we don't believe in God and we don't believe in faith."

"If I had the time, which I don't have," he continued, "I could put up on this screen or on this screen or on both of them the proof that would show you this isn't some natural evolution, this is artificially driven. I can show you organization after organization after organization to a network that would frighten you because it would be vast that you couldn't get it on that screen, of organizations that are funded and paid with a systematic approach to killing and destroying faith in America today."

"Most people don't even realize it," Forbes said, "and let me tell you, the dollars going into that organization is nine times the dollars going into the organizations trying to defend and protect faith in America."
