Hagee: Rock Music Is 'Satanic Cyanide' That Should Be Taken Outside And Burned

It may be 2013, but that doesn't mean that Satan has updated his methods of corrupting America's youth, as John Hagee explained in his Sunday sermon this week in which he warned his congregation, yet again, that if they read Harry Potter books they are "opening the gates of your mind to the Prince of Darkness and he will invade, and once he's invited in, he doesn't go out until he is cast out."

Even more dangerous, Hagee warned, is that infernal rock and roll music, which "is nothing more than Satanic cyanide" that needs to be taken outside of the home and burned:

Fischer: Huma Abedin's 'Stated Purpose' Is To Destroy Western Civilization

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer was discussing the on-going Anthony Weiner sexting scandal, which provided an opportunity for him to join the right-wing smear campaign against Weiner's wife, long-time Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, for supposedly being an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood intent on destroying America.

As a matter of fact, said Fischer, despite having no evidence whatsoever, Adedin's "stated goal" is to destroy this nation.

"Her goal in life as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood is to destroy Western Civilization," Fischer said. "She's the one that wants to be the next mayor's wife in the city of New York ... Huma Abedin, she wants to destroy Western Civilization. That is her stated purpose, that is her stated goal":

Beck Wants To Start A Campaign To Get Local Streets Named After Rush Limbaugh

Last night, Glenn Beck co-hosted his television program remotely from Salt Lake City, Utah, a city which has become the latest victim of the progressive effort to revise American history, all because it has a street named after labor organizer and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez.

"Now you tell me what Cesar Chavez Boulevard has to do with Salt Lake City," Beck fumed, as he called on Americans to join with him by vowing "not to take it sitting down" because his movement, he believes, is right on the verge of winning.

We have no idea what he was talking about, but apparently now Beck wants his audience to start campaigns to get their city councils to start naming the streets after George Washington, Thomas Jefferson ... and Rush Limbaugh:

"They are doing it to us," Beck said. "Make sure you are ramping it up in your town and putting those boulevards and those street names [in place]":

PFAWF: More Attention on Colorado Censorship Campaign

Last week, People For the American Way Foundation joined a campaign to fight book censorship in a Colorado school district. The censorship battle began when a group of parents launched a petition to keep Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye out of the Legacy High School curriculum. Legacy High student Bailey Cross started a counter-petition emphasizing the dangerous precedent that this censorship would set and encouraging the school district to keep the book on the approved reading list.

PFAW Foundation sent a letter to the Adams 12 Five Star School District Board of Education showing support for the student’s campaign and urging the district to reject the attempts at censorship.

The efforts of the Foundation were highlighted by the Denver Post yesterday. Staff writer Yesenia Robles wrote that the parents involved claim the book is “developmentally inappropriate” and should be kept out of the classroom.

People For the American Way Foundation disagrees. Robles reports,

"We do understand this book has themes and content that are really challenging, but that's why it should be taught," foundation spokesman Drew Courtney said. "An important role of classrooms is to help students and young adults deal with that, to have those conversations in an intelligent way in the classrooms. Offering an alternative assignment is appropriate, but banning a prize-winning novel isn't prudence. It's censorship."

Barton: Gay Activists Don't Want Equality, They Want To Be Dominant

The guest on "WallBuilders Live" today was Pastor Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel church in California who came on to warn the audience about SB 323, the "Youth Equality Act," which would require youth nonprofit organizations operating in the state to comply with California’s nondiscrimination laws.

That, of course, is an outrage to folks like David Barton, who warned that gay activists don't just want equality, they want to dominate and force everyone else to accept their views, which is something that Christians would never do:

Notice that this bill is pointed against quote 'discriminate against LGBT groups.' Now discriminate against now means, in California officials' views, to disagree with.  So it's not discriminate against, it's if you disagree with these groups, we're going to punish you for not having a government-approved view. This is what happens when [Christians] refuse to get involved and its now going to effect home-schoolers as well.

We often say let homosexuals have the right to marry, et cetera; no, no, no, it doesn't stop with that - a little leaven leavens the whole loaf - these guys are not wanting to be equal, they're wanting to be dominant.

And that's what we've seen across Europe, that's what we've seen everywhere else but we keep thing, well, we wouldn't do that if we were in charge, we wouldn't force our views on them. Great, but you're not in charge and you're not getting involved and you're not electing people.

Understanding History With Professor Glenn Beck

Earlier this month, Glenn Beck hosted a three-day long Independence Day celebration in Salt Lake City, Utah which culminated with his "Man In The Moon" performance, but the gathering's other main attraction was a "museum" that he and David Barton curated featuring artifacts from their respective collections, as well as several outside pieces.

While the museum was open to the general paying public, special VIP guests received guided tours personally led by Barton and Beck.

And what sort of things did these VIP guests learn from Beck's guided tour?

That all of human history is just cycle-upon-cycle of Satan trying to wipe out God's chosen people in order to ultimately destroy God: 

King: Attacks On Me Are A Sign That Civilization Will Not Survive

Congressman Steve King continues his tour of defiance, refusing to apologize or backtrack in any way for the comments he made earlier this week when he claimed that the vast majority of undocumented immigrants are "130-pound" drug runners with "calves the size of cantaloupes."

As part of this ongoing effort, King showed up on Bryan Fischer's radio program today where he vowed that he will never apologize "for telling the American people the truth."

King defended himself by saying he had made this same point several times in the past, but is only being attacked for it now by people who "have an amnesty agenda that they want to drive through the House of Representatives," adding that any civilization in which government leaders would attack and marginalize someone like him for speaking the truth "will not be able to sustain itself in the long run":

Klingenschmitt: 'The Demonic Spirits Inside The Homosexual Agenda' Are Trying To Recruit Your Kids

On his most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" show, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt called for the passage of a Federal Marriage Amendment to overturn the recent Supreme Court decisions on DOMA and Prop 8.

Saying that he had recently met with Rep. Tim Huelskamp, who has introduced just such an amendment, Klingenschmitt warned that "the demonic spirits inside the homosexual agenda" are attempting to "homosexualize and recruit your children" before declaring that even if they had all of eternity, gay activists will never be able to define marriage in any way other than how it was established by God.

"You know what, Satan? You have not won this battle," Klingenschmitt proclaimed. "Your time is limited and, in the long run, Jesus Christ will rule and reign on this earth and define marriage between one man and one woman.  It's inevitable":

September 30, 2013: The Day The Constitution Dies

A few weeks ago, Glenn Beck was warning that the passage of any immigration reform legislation would be the "death knell of the country."

But it turns out that immigration reform is not the only thing that will destroy America, as Beck is now mobilizing his audience to get behind Sen. Mike Lee's plan to block any effort to pass a continuing resolution to keep the government operating after September 30 unless the resolution defunds health care reform.

On his radio broadcast today, Beck declared that America technically died on the last election, but the "death certificate" won't be signed until September 30; "that's the day that makes it official."

"This truly is the end of the Constitution," Beck declared, saying that if Congress does not defund health care reform, then President Obama "is a dictator at that point":

Lapin: 'Singleness ... Tends To Give Us Tyranny In A Society'

On several occasions, Glenn Beck has made it clear that he does not share the Religious Right's panicked belief that marriage equality will destroy the nation and even stated that the push for equality is winning "because the principle of it is is right."

So it was a little odd that he handed over his television program last night to David Barton and Rabbi Daniel Lapin who spent the entire hour making the case that, in fact, marriage equality will destroy the nation and that government has no right to change God's definition of marriage.

While Barton claimed that the Founding Fathers all agreed that the government had no power or right to change anything that God had established, Lapin declared that "it is marriage that makes government possible."

"Singleness," Lapin added, "in other words, an obliteration of marriage, tends to give us tyranny in a society and, what's more, tyranny seems to stimulate a destruction and a pulverizing of marriage."

PFAW Foundation Joins Fight Against Book Censorship in Colorado School District

“If one book is banned from being taught in a classroom setting, then it opens the door for all books – and ideas – to be banned as well.”

These are the closing words to a petition launched by high school student Bailey Cross in response to an attempt to eliminate Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye from the high school curriculum in her Colorado school district.  The school board will have to decide the fate of the book in the district’s classrooms, which a local news source has reported could happen as early as August

In their petition, the students point out that parents or students who object to the reading assignment are already offered an alternative novel.  In addition, teachers are not forced to teach the book.  The outright elimination of this important piece of literature from the classroom would set a troubling precedent.

Today People For the American Way Foundation sent a letter on behalf of our 718,000 members to the Adams 12 Five Star School District Board of Education urging them to reject the attempts at censorship.  The letter notes,

“Since it was first published in 1970, The Bluest Eye has been the target of censorship attempts because of its frank portrayal of racism and sexual assault. But shielding high school students from these subjects and from Morrison’s discussion of them does nothing to eliminate them from the world. Instead, Morrison’s nuanced discussions of difficult issues serve to help readers understand, discuss, and confront those issues…

“Our nation’s schools are meant to be places that encourage the free exchange of ideas.”

Let’s make sure we keep them that way.

Crampton: God Is Angry The St. Louis Cardinals Removed A Cross From The Pitcher's Mound

Earlier this year, the grounds crew for the St. Louis Cardinals began drawing a number "6" along with a cross on the pitcher's mound before home games in honor of former Cardinals star Stan Musial, who passed away in January.  When the team's general manager learned about the practice, he asked the grounds crew to stop doing it, saying that it is "not club policy to be putting religious symbols on the playing field or throughout the ballpark."

And that, of course, has outraged Matt Barber and Steve Crampton, who apparently feel that not having a cross etched on the pitcher's mound is some sort of attack on their religious freedom, as Crampton declared that God is now "the dirtiest word that can be spoken in public" while asserting that ending the practice is "an embarrassment for our nation" and an insult to the God-fearing people of St. Louis.

"We are going to find ourselves," Crampton warned, "in grave danger. And so our being embarrassed by a cross on a pitcher's mound is shameful and you can bet that the Creator of Heaven and Earth is not turning a blind eye to what is going on in America today":

Beck: America Was 'Established For The Establishment Of Israel'

Last night, Glenn Beck traveled to Washington, DC to address John Hagee's annual Christians United for Israel conference where he delivered remarks that were predictably filled with Bible prophecy, doom and gloom, and dire warnings about the need to turn this nation back to God.

During his speech, Beck boldly declared that the United States was "established for the establishment of Israel," meaning that the United States was established by God specifically for the purpose of re-establishing the nation of Israel.

And, as proof that our Founding Fathers were well aware of this, Beck pointed out that even our dollar bill contains a Star of David, as well as representations of the cloud and fire that led the Israelites while they wandered in the desert.

It's not true, of course, but that is what happens when you get your history from people like David Barton:

Beck: 'We're A Society That Has Literally Gone Insane'

Remember last month when Glenn Beck was so heavy-hearted over the state of the nation that he began citing the Book of Mormon as he solemnly warned his audience that the Last Days were rapidly approaching ... but then he went to Washington, DC to speak at a Tea Party rally and God showed up and miraculously rejuvenated Beck who suddenly understood everything and eagerly declared "I'm back!"

Well, judging by his remarks last night, there is no joy in Beckville any more as he is back to declaring that "we're at the Beginning of Days."

And you know what set Beck off this time?  This video, posted on his The Blaze website, of a woman throwing a tantrum because her husband wouldn't take her to the lake.

To Beck, this wasn't just a video of some woman having a meltdown but was actually another road sign highlighting everything that is wrong with this country, prompting him to declare that God had given us "sacred ground" upon which to build the United States and "we have defiled it, we have debased it, we have broken the covenant" as we continue to refuse to turn to God, for which we will suffer the consequences.

"We're a society that has literally gone insane," Beck said, warning that if we do not turn back to God "humanity doesn't survive":

Staver: SCOTUS DOMA Ruling Is Like Trying To Suspend The Law Of Gravity

On today's "Faith and Freedom Radio" broadcast, Mat Staver continued to directly compare the Supreme Court's recent ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act to the Dred Scott ruling and other egregious court decisions from the past, adding that the DOMA decision is like the court ruling that it was going to suspend the laws of gravity.

"There are certain natural laws," Staver declared, "the laws of gravity are certainly natural laws. The natural created order of men and women, husbands and wives, is part of the natural created order. You may want some other union but you cannot create marriage into something that it is incapable of being":

Bryan Fischer: Demon Hunter

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer dedicated an entire segment to recounting some of the various run-ins he has had with demonic spirits and how he cleansed them from his home, cleansed his and other children who were being attacked by them, and even fought one off that grabbed him while he slept.

Inspired by a story in The Blaze today about the new horror film "The Conjuring" and the supposedly true story that inspired it, Fischer recounted how he once delivered a young girl from a demon that was tormenting her and ordering her to be disobedient to her parents under threat that the demon would otherwise kill them.

But it was not just others that Fischer rescued, as he also was once personally attacked by a spirit in the middle of the night.  Apparently, this spirit had been sent out to harm him by a coven of local witches and it grabbed him by the ankle as he slept and tried to pull him from his bed until he was able to rebuke it in the name of Jesus and drive it away:

Corsi: Gay Marriage Will Lead To Pedophilia And Hate Crimes Charges Against Pastors

Last week, the Eagle Forum hosted its annual Collegians Summit in Washington, DC at which several members of Congress spoke, as did WND's leading Birther and resident crackpot Jerome Corsi, who warned the students in attendance that gay marriage will lead to polygamy and pedophilia that will turn America into a modern-day version of pagan Rome.

Corsi went on to warn that once gay marriage is established as constitutional, then it will only be a matter of time before that religious leaders will be dragged out of their pulpits and charged with a hate crime for daring to preach against homosexuality:

Barton: Glenn Beck Is A Christian Who Identifies As Mormon Simply Out Of Loyalty

It has been no secret that there have been some among the Religious Right who have raised concerns about the prominent role that Glenn Beck has been playing within the movement because he is a practitioner of the Mormon faith.  And given David Barton's close ties to Beck, Barton has also received criticism for defending Beck, often by claiming that if you judge Beck simply by the "fruits" of his works and not his label, he is really a Christian.

While Beck himself openly embraces his Mormon faith and has even dedicated entire programs to defending it, Barton continues to insist that Beck is really just a Mormon in name only, and he only does that because he has a loyalty to the church for helping him overcome with problems with alcohol.

As Barton explained to Steve Deace last week, individual Mormons can go to Heaven and Beck really "became a Christian back when he was in Alcoholics Anonymous" but identifies as a Mormon today only "because he has a loyalty to them":

They see the label Mormon and they say "ah, I know what that is." No you don't.  To say a Mormon can't go to Heaven is like saying every Baptist is going to Heaven. What you have to look at is individuals. And individuals often don't believe what the rest of the of the group does.

Now, in the case of Glenn - and I'm not going to speak for Glenn, I'll just speak for what I know about him - Glenn became a Christian back when he was in Alcoholics Anonymous, but when he was up in New England and laying on the floor, curled up, trying to get withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, no Christians reach out to him; it was the Mormon Church that took him under its arm and said 'hey, let us help you.' And they just loved on him and they just held him and he's got a loyalty to them because they're the people who reached out for him when he really needed help.

So people get stuck over what the label is and my position has been very simple; if I walk up to a tree and it says I'm a banana tree but I keep seeing apples, what do I go by? The label or what I see of the fruit?

And so people again keep getting caught up over labels, but hey, back off the labels, judge the fruit.  And there's going to be things we disagree with and I think you analysis was good is that it's in development.  You know, you look at where he was three years ago and where he is now; a world of difference.

Beck: Obama Is 'An Expert On The Most Divisive Form Of Politics In Existence Today'

Glenn Beck continued his attack on President Obama for his remarks regarding the verdict in the Trayvon Martin murder trial on his television program last night by rather ironically blasting Obama for dividing the nation by placing people "in little boxes and then convincing those people that you're only in that box because of those people over there; they're the cause of all of your problems."

Ummm, that pretty much sums up the basic philosophy that drives Beck's entire media empire, doesn't it?

For Beck, the fact that Obama delivered his remarks without the use of a teleprompter was simply further proof that racial politics is Obama's "life long passion," which is why he "is an expert on the most divisive form of politics in existence today."

"I'm sorry, but I've never seen a leader behave this way, ever," Beck remarked. "Leaders don't blame people. Leaders don't lie for their own personal gain; crooks do."

Well, actually, some leader do, Beck explained ... socialist leaders like Che Guevara:

Young People For Supports Florida Dream Defenders’ Courageous Sit-In

In what the Miami Herald is calling the “longest sit-in demonstration in recent memory,” a group of more than sixty young people called the Dream Defenders came to Florida Governor Rick Scott’s office last Tuesday and have not left. 

Arriving at the Florida Capitol just a few days after George Zimmerman was acquitted, the group is pushing for a special legislative session to take up a Trayvon Martin Civil Rights Act which would repeal the state’s Stand Your Ground law and address racial profiling, the school-to prison pipeline, and more. Among the many young people in Gov. Scott’s office is Dream Defenders leader Phil Agnew, a 2005 graduate of PFAW Foundation’s Young People For (YP4) leadership development program, as well as eight to ten other current or former YP4 Fellows. 

Agnew told the Miami Herald that the work is broader than their specific demands: 

“It’s also about a paradigm shift,” Agnew said. “It’s about empowering the next generation.”

PFAW Foundation has been helping support the courageous young people at the Capitol in any way we can, from providing administrative and financial support – including meals – to sending video cameras to help document their experiences.  Young People For Director Joy Lawson highlighted the sit-in in a Huffington Post op-ed and is leading a powerful photo campaign collecting statements of support for the Dream Defenders. 

Together, we are showing the Dream Defenders, and the country, that young people are standing with them in this fight.
